‘Maybe Richard will find another way. Just tell him, Alice. Tell him that his own Confessor never stopped loving him. And that if he can’t undo the magic, if he can’t return to her then, she’ll be waiting for him, in the Underworld. Forever.’
-Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell,
Legend of the Seeker


If I tell you, will you listen?
Will you remember?
Will you stay here forever,
Never leave me alone?

I think not.
If you were, you would never
have left me that first time.
That only time.
You would never have abandoned me to dance all alone.

If I tell you, will you hear me?
Will you never forget?
Will you be with me forever,
always be my friend?

I think not.
If you were, you would never have done so that first time.
That only time.
You would never have left me
all alone in the dark.

If I tell you, will you recall?
Will you remember my silence?
Will you always be there, a comforting hand in my hand?

I think not.
If you were, you would have
been there then.
YOu would have been there
to see me dance with the men.
You would have been there
to see me dance with death.

Yes, my false friend,
I have danced with death.
