It's working, I can feel the Power around us growing. Zipping from person to person, back and forth like a living thing. Almost falling into it myself when I feel something brush up against my leg, glance down to see a bedraggled Chester.

"Wouldn't miss it," Rub my calf against his head as best I can before he addresses the group. Now that I'm looking for it, I feel his influence in the link we've made. But in looking, I see something else.

We are not alone on the riverbank- I feel the creeping, crawling sensation of menace and I know this has to the Tower's intervention. Look to the girl beside me as I slide my grip from hand to wrist, then tug her over and wrap her fingers around Hermia's arm so I can drop her hand without breaking the chain, "Whatever happens- don't let go of her. Keep her connected to the others."

I'm probably three steps away, but just in case, I dash back and squeeze Hermia on the shoulders, careful not to dislodge her neighbors.

"You're probably the best friend I've ever had, and you've cared about me more than I've ever cared about myself. You will do this. You are doing this," I let go of her and look down to Chester, "Take care of her, my friend. I'll keep them off of you until you're all done."

Pull my sword from her scabbard on my back as I run down the riverbank. I can still feel the connection, even now. But I know how tenuous such a working is- and I will not let it be stopped.
