"She said to go down there, did she...?" Nyte muttered, looking to the boy and back at the hole. Indeed, she could see a light far down into the darkness, likely Sunny and the other. Shaking her head, Nyte tapped her helmet like she would tap her chin. "Here I thought she was sane, but... looking back on it now, what a fool I was."
Nyte nodded, stepping towards the boy and shuffling closer. She looked down at him and saw his arms held up at her. "You... want me to pick you up...?" She whispered sadly, and then nodded, putting her arms beneath his and lifting him up easily, pulling him into a comfortable hold that seemed natural.
As Laphicet looked into her helmet, Nyte gazed back, looking past him to the constantly shifting forest, the seemingly living trees, and the enormous violet flowers.
"I won't let you go," Nyte muttered with a firm nod, squeezing him gently before stepping foot off the edge and into the dark abyss below.
