And all is silent.
Then the orange hand appears once more, but this time not sweeping the narrow valley.
Instead it 'hops' from spot to spot, reminding Sky of times when he couldn't see a darn thing and had to flail with his hands while digging around in his desk.
Then the hand lifts itself off the ground, it's fingers twisting into a sign language 'S'.
Then a 'K'.
And then a 'Y'.
The massive hand rests itself on the ground; palm up and open.
Slowly, slowly does the Chosen Hero approach the oddity, Master Sword heavy in her sheath when he tried to pull her.
Climbing into the hand's palm, the massive fingers curl lightly around the tiny light-dweller.
It lifts off the ground, gently carrying Sky past the protective wall.
