"I will, I will, don't worry. I'll handle Lowfyr. You just get your Paladins back to camp. Don't let word of this leak." Kortigan dismissed his son by turning away. He quickly spun back around and he chose to ignore, for now, the resentment, which flared from the younger elf's eyes. "By the way, how did the human kill Azureflame? By magic or by blade?" he asked.
"How did you know he had a sword?" rejoined his son.
As Kortigan turned away for the last time, he threw back over his shoulder, "Then perhaps he was not a wizard after all?"
