Once all of her sisters have come up to their bedroom, Arulia pulls Cassilda and Niniva aside. Nervously, she asks, "Cassilda, will you...will you show Niniva your hand? The...the one that was burned?"

Cassilda seems surprised by this request. "Are you sure?" she asks. After receiving confirmation, she unwraps the hand, revealing it is perfectly fine.

"What?" asks Niniva, confused. "I don't get it. You faked your hand being burned? Why?" she asks.

"Cassilda's hand was burned, and badly," Arulia explains. "But...but I healed it. Camilla saw it, too. And the Dragon Queen didn't give me the power to do it. Another god, her rival Fizban...Paladine...did." Looking Niniva in the eyes, she continues. "The Dragon Queen does not brook dissent, especially not from followers of her rivals. If her followers find out about my faith, I am sure that Father's imprisonment will look like mercy in comparison. That's why I want as little to do with them as possible." She shakes her head. "I know that we fought about this this morning, and I can't make you choose the same as I have. I couldn't explain to you why I'm so afraid of the Dragon Queen this morning, not in public like that, but I can tell you now, and you deserve to know."

Niniva appears shocked at first, but then she says, "Wait, did you say Paladine? As in Paladine the Grey Serpent? Paladine the Deceiver?"

Cassilda blinks. "Wait, you've heard the name Paladine before?" she asks, puzzled.

Niniva nods. "After Arulia and I...parted ways, I went to the temple. I wanted to see things for myself, get my own answers. There was a sermon going on, so I listened to it. The priestess there said Paladine was the one who trapped Takhisis in the Abyss to stop her from interfering with his plan. His plan to throw a fiery mountain upon Krynn. Arulia, Paladine is the one responsible for the Cataclysm. Takhisis was trying to stop him. She watched for three hundred years as the people suffered from plague, war and famine after the Cataclysm, but only recently has she found a way to express herself in the world again. And that's the only reason Paladine has reappeared, too. He could have helped, but didn't. He's only back to stop Takhisis from uniting the world..."

Arulia stares at Niniva for a moment in stunned silence. Finally, she says, "I don't know how much of what you've heard is true, but I can't imagine that Paladine doesn't care and wants us to suffer. All I know is that he came to me in my dreams, and that he makes me feel safe and loved. The one time I tried to go to the Dragon Queen's temple, I felt her presence and it terrified me." She shakes her head, knowing that she hasn't said enough to convince Niniva of anything but afraid to say more. "I can't tell you what to believe, Niniva, but I can't believe that Paladine is as you say."

"I suppose neither one of us has any proof," Niniva admits. "But just keep in mind that you are putting yourself and this family in great danger. If the church finds out you are a follower of Paladine...well, I don't have to tell you. You arrested your share of heretics when you worked for the Holy Guard, after all."

"I know how dangerous it is to believe in anything but the Dragon Queen," Arulia replies, "but I have to believe, even if it is dangerous."

Unless Niniva wishes to discuss the matter further, Arulia snuffs the lantern by her bed and lays down. Sleep is a long time coming, though, as she cannot help but reflect uneasily on Niniva's words.
