With Meity returned to the deep mountains and the temple and its clergy thawed, the crisis had passed without any loss of life. Additionally, the nighttime display was far more vivid and bombastic than usual. Lucas thought that perhaps Carmea was overdoing it, but considering the recent happenings and the looming threat, there was no harm in putting forth a little extra effort to alleviate the mood. He prayed the blessed lights would melt away misfortune as the ice that once enveloped the temple.
