He turned to Kahlan. “By the way, what are you doing all the way down here? How did you know where I was? What’s happening to the north, in the New World?”
“We’ll talk about all that later,” she said. “I had to be with you. I decided that it was my life, and I wanted to be with you. You were right about the war in the New World. It took me a long time to come to understand that. I finally did. I came to be with you because that was all that was left for me.”
He turned to Cara. “And you?”
“I always wanted to see the world.”

“Where did you ever get all this ribbon, anyway?” Kahlan asked around a mouthful of pins.
“Benjamin got it for me.” Cara chuckled as she threaded the ribbon around the cord. “Can you believe it? He made me promise not to ask him where he got it from.”
Kahlan took the pins from her mouth. “Who?”

Cara lowered the ribbon and stared at Kahlan. “No I didn’t.”
“Yes, you did. You said Benjamin.”
“I said General Meiffert. You only thought—”
“I never knew that General Meiffert’s first name was Benjamin.”
“Is ‘Benjamin’ General Meiffert’s first name?”

“You know it is.”
A smile grew on Kahlan’s lips. “I do now.”

Cara had her own room opposite theirs. Once up and about, Kahlan was surprised to find that Cara had a collection of rocks. Cara bristled at the term “collection,” and asserted that they were there as defensive weapons, should they be attacked and trapped in the house. Kahlan found the rocks—all different colors—suspiciously pretty. Cara insisted they were deadly.
