Walking down the passageway she had chosen, Astra realized something
disturbing. She had wandered back into the caverns of the dragon. This
frightened her, despite her resolve, as she had to consider some rather
daunting things. Mainly, how, even though they thought they had made it
out, she herself at least was still in the caverns. What magick was this?
Could it be that the dragonmage was not dead? That had to be the case, for
his enchantments had not died...
She focused herself as the cavern took a dip downward. She saw at the bottom, an underground river. She knew that such rivers led to freedom, and in her present state she was in no position to hunt the dragon. She took a deep breath, and dove into it.
She swam for what seemed like years, in darkness and wetness. Finally, her strength gone, she washed up upon a beach. There, on the beach she saw Frederigo, evidently marooned. She smiled faintly as she passed into unconsciousness.
