When it was time to leave, Kevin asked Catherin if she wanted to go with them, but she seemed unwilling to answer. Instead, she whispered to Athena…she wanted to see Anna, but she didn't want to go back upstairs to get her things. Athena understood and did it for her. Then, when Athena announced she was going with the King to find Rachel, Catherin was so used to being told what to do, she didn't demand to go with them.

The king, on the other hand, wasn't so sure taking Athena was a good idea. He didn't want a war with the Highlanders and couldn't be sure he wouldn't do or say something to offend her. But Athena was having none of it and stood with her hands on her hips glaring at him. The king shot Kevin a silent plea for help, but Kevin only shrugged. Finally, the king gave in.

The two men agreed on a place in the forest where the Highlanders and Catherin would wait, and it had already been three days. Kevin hadn't brought an army with him. Instead, he only brought three men, plus the two he sent earlier to watch Stoneham, and there wasn't much to do. A couple of the men caught fish in a pond, which provided them with plenty to eat. The men practiced their warrior skills in the small clearing, and then told stories around the fire at night. They were careful to speak in their native language. Some of the stories were unfit for the ears of a lady.
