He taught her many things, and not just guilish skills. Unfortunately, neither Vivia nor Raym could ignore their attraction to each other, and intimacy between them would have meant the end of her guile. So she joined Ladygate, an all-female community, and accepted that love was not for her.After a while, though, she realizes Ladygate is not where she belongs either.

Her guilish training is not quite complete, and she hopes Raym can help her.But Raym has also disappeared...
