She wanted to know what I was up to; I told her I couldn't tell her. Nodding, she told me that she understood and that she wasn't worried. "I trust you," she said. "I know you wouldn't do anything reckless." I thought about that for a long time afterwards, and I decided that those were some of the nicest words anyone could say to me. Last night, I prayed that I could earn the trust that she had for me and that I could somehow learn to have such faith in others again.
Idriya Morland still thinks that the ninjas will ultimately defeat the pirates.
