“How did you know my mum?”
“She died protecting me,” the bold statement of the man before me takes me aback. I knew that it was likely that I would come across one of the people that mum saved, given that she was operating as part of the Amour Federation for over a millennium.
“How did she die?” I am able to ask after a moment.
“She took a shot from a Extollian soldier. The power from the fire was too much for even Aella’s healing ability to cope with.”
“Why would she do it?”
“She was my grandmother.”
