"If we are planning to have even a small chance of success, you must gain connection to Fire and his siblings", Mazeg started after he and Dael returned to the tree. "Put the necklace on again, please."
Dael did as he was asked. He thought the whole thing was crazy, but he was willing to trust the old spirit. Dael knew something odd was going on in Cas Canthar and Cas Denthar. While the story was more than a bit farfetched, it still somehow made sense. Whatever his opinion was, he believed the story enough not to give up and risk the life of his family and countless other people.
"You have been with Fire a very long time, Dael", Mazeg said. "There is a connection between you, but it is weak. It never got to strengthen to levels that would have been needed. Now your mind is too different, a mix of human and a wolf, so it is harder to touch. Not to mention your depression and other negative thoughts."
"So what are you going to do then?" Dael asked. "I can't really change myself."
