We both stared at Asha. I let out a sigh through clenched teeth, and Kyo sat down on a leather settee. Asha looked guiltily at me. I arched my eyebrows, walking over to her. I half expected her to wince as I got near her, but she trusted me enough. I hung my arm loosely around her shoulders.
"That's behind us now. I don't blame you for the Shadow any more; I blame Zelthar. You don't need to look so guilty." I laughed. Asha smiled.
"Thank you, Jay." She replied, leaning her head on my collar bone. I stroked her hair.
"Okay, not to break up the mushy moment" I hadn't heard him use words like that before... "But we have a sword to find." He continued. I nodded and Asha zoomed upstairs, probably to check on Elena.
"Where shall we start?" I asked Kyoshiro. He thought for a while.
"Well, we can't take young Elena. She must be put somewhere; with someone you trust."
I thought. Who could we give her to to take care of. My first choice would've been Kyoshiro, but he was coming with us. We needed his help in this...mission. So who?
