This was also a scene from Elrek’s backstory depicting meeting between Lyall and an unnamed stranger. I cut it from the story because it doesn’t involve Elrek directly (he’s on the roof, I believe) but I liked the scene, even as cut down as it is here, so I thought it’d be good for a filler page to help me catch up.

Cover next week, then on to the chapter proper. Thanks for reading! See you then!
