The threat makes him smile, just as it was intended, but the mirth falters as the image of a dead gnoll and a greatclub rolls into memory. It had been no more than a few weeks since that fight, but it feels as if a lifetime from all the events that have happened since then. The gnolls, the big one had wielded Cadrius's own sword while he took up Paladin's greatsword. Shade had fought another, killing it neatly in under a minute. Had he ever thanked her for that? For saving him then and so many other times?

He already knows her response; his offer will be met with a stern glance and some barbed words.
