This second time someone asked for Rulun's powers to save the world, everything was the same as the time before. It was the second time she had seen a great evil revived, and the second time she had accompanied a hero who set off on a journey to save it. The only difference, in fact, was the young man asking. But even knowing the likelihood of his fate, Rulun could not bring herself to decline his wish, seeing the fire in his eyes. It was the same fire that had burned in the eyes of the one she loved.
Rulun is probably a Chinese last name.
