This is from an ember in the ashes by Sebha. To here, the cramped streets and dusty markets of the scholars quarter blur past to me like the landscape of a nightmare. With each step, part of my brain shouts at me to turn around to go back to help Darren until the only word I can think is run. The soldiers come after me, but I have grown up among the squat mud brick houses of the quarter, and I lose my pursuers quickly. My panicked run turns to a stumble as I wander from alley to alley.

If I can find the resistance and explain what happened, maybe they could help me break Darren free from prison. Not just because they owe me, but because they live by is not a code of honor. As old as the scholar people. The rebel leaders are the best of the scholars, the bravest. My parents taught me that before the empire killed them. If I ask for aid, the resistance won't turn me away. I step toward the great
