Padme quickly explains what happened to Zalyanitha, and hurries out. Zalyanitha gathers her things, takes the slave girl, grabs some food and goes to the shed to get eagles. On the way meeting Enya who tells to meet him one hour east from the Siltyshore. She finds one eagle feeding on a corpse, most likely a burglar. She saddles the other eagle, puts a barely conscious girl into a harness and rides to the harbor. They land on the sailboat of Enya. Zalyanitha leaves the girl and the eagle in the care of Padme, who is already onboard, and hurries to get her eagle. She jumps on to the dock, and it looks like she is being chased.
Meanwhile Bastyn and Rakshavyada are on a way to the harbour. They notice some commotion on the way. They find Enya’s sailboat already leaving. Rakshavyada leaps for a colossal jump, although not so lucky, and land with a big splash yards from the boat. Padme notices that and helps him to get in, leaving wounded Bastyn on the shore..
Zalyanitha runs to her eagle and tries to be as quick as possible. She mounts the eagle, with no time to saddle it and escapes the pursuers. She flies to the place where she agreed to meet the nobleman, and rests for a whole.
Soon she hears someone approaching. It turns out that this is Bastyn and Dinlero – Enya’s cousin. Bastyn asks to get his armor from the inn. Zalyanihta doubts if this is a good idea, since it is very dark and risky to fly and on top of that, she is wanted in the town, since the pursuers were guards of the town.
Bastyn offers to give her a charm of nightvision and Zalyanitha agrees. To get the spell to work, she gives Bastyn a punch in the nose as the ritual demands for the spill of the blood in an act of violence, and hurries to get armor. The mission is completed with almost perfect score (although she did cause some noise, appeared very dirty in the inn, broke the lock and twisted her ankle).
The Chimera’s Delight meets with a ship of empire and salutes her captain to whom Enya leaves some kind of package, then maneuvers to look like they are going into the open sea, but turns east afterwards.
Next morning Bairage regains her consciousness and has a hysterical episode culminating in attempted suicide. Rakshavyada and Padme had hard time calming her, but finally she finds a little bit of comfort after threats from Rakshavyada and soothing by Padme.
After the accident Padme is invited for a poetry evening to the captain’s cabin, which ends in a passionate time and a sleepover at captain’s cabin which was very audible to everyone else onboard. Enya, who seemed very nerwous at the start, is blown away by the experience, and right after it ends, confesses that he was not completly honest with her. He tells that he brought them on this ship to meet with someone, that he only wishes them best and asks to trust him.
In the morning everyone meets on the deck to watch as the ship approaches an island, which Bastyn recognizes as an Owlreef. Chimera’s Delight casts the anchor, and party prepares to go ashore.
