Unruly black hair hung in a mess around Rex's face as he knelt over in the rain. Lightning struck, illuminating the yellowish wheat of the field he was in. He gripped at the tall grass around him, his hands clenched into fists. From the building a few hundred feet behind him, Chrysa ran over to his side.
"Rex? Are you okay? I'm... I'm so sorry..." She knelt down by him, gently draping her arms around him. "I... I saw the message..."
The thunder finally pounded, rolling deep through the entire valley that they were in. "It's my fault..."
"No... no it's not..."
"It is." His body hunched down more, his forehead now resting on the ground. "What have I done... I've endangered so many people... all for some damned crusade..."
"Rex... it's not..." She gently rested her head on his back.
"What do I do, Chrysa?" His voice cracked, ever so slightly. "What... what do I do? I can't bring the Four Moons into this. I don't want to risk anybody else..." He sat back up, his bright blue orbs looking into bright gold ones. "What do I do?"
She hung her head, resting herself onto his shoulder. "I don't know..."
Lightning struck; thunder rolled.
