Zane saw the image fly before his eyes over and over: Nekane shoving him through the portal back home; the look on her face that went against her normally dour and irritable attitude by showing concern, for him or her he didn’t know; and the ablaze blade that cleanly sliced through her gut just before the world was engulfed in white and he was back home, so unfairly far from where he was desperately needed. And the portal had closed.
