Zanx-iie managed to pull herself out of the river and into the bank with heaving breaths. She had pushed herself a bit too far and now was completely exhausted. Her pounding heart drowned out the sound of the rushing falls and she closed her eyes trying to catch her breath. This would be tough on her, even now she could hear phantom voices of her friends. The sound brought tears to her eyes, she missed them more than she missed anything and she knew it was her fault the mission was given to them. Her other missions had always alluded to the fortress on Tao and she had become so curious. Curiosity killed, she knew that now.
