And Diur did take to his task of maintaining the balance of the cosmos. After Earoni formed the world of Geiha for her children to live on, Diur opened his claw and produced the sun and set into motion the path of Geiha about it.

"Come in," Sheala called as a thudding knock came from her door. Not surprised in the least by who it was, Reane entered then shut the door behind her after a quick check of the hall. "Aren't you supposed to still be confined to your cabin?" Sheala chided her.
"Yeah. And if Brentai finds out I'm out sneaking around, he'll throw another fit. Like he did last night when I snuck up onto the bridge. I'll say it again - I can't believe I'm a prisoner on my own ship."
Sheala resumed combing out her hair in front of the mirror secured to the top of her dresser. She hated the way the salt air dried out her hair out and made it brittle. "So, what brings you down here to be with us common folk anyway?"
"Come on Sheala, I just need someone to talk to."
"What's the matter?" Sheala rolled her eyes. "People aren't paying enough attention to you?"
Sitting on the corner of Sheala's bed, there was a sharp pain in Reane's side. "Actually," she said, hiding her discomfort, "I wanted to know a couple things. About Anthony."
"Anthony? So why come to me?"
"Because I've noticed that since we left Catersburg he and Brentai seem to have formed a good friendship. Seems like they've almost become the best of friends. Sheala, I've got to know about what's in that man's mind. It's driving me crazy."
"And you think that because Brentai and Anthony talk that I might have overheard something? Right?" She stopped brushing her hair for a second. "I might have. But why ask? Why not just find the information you want in my mind and take it?"
"Look, I know you don't like me doing that. So, for the sake of our friendship, I'm not going to violate you in that way. Besides, I'm just too exhausted." Exhausted was not an understatement. She'd been sleeping a lot as her mind continued to recover. "Even if I wanted to. What with what happened in Catersburg and the other day with the archeon. I've decided to shut my mind off for a while. You know, give it a rest. Seems that each time I've been using my abilities lately they take more and more out of me. And right now I have a splitting headache."
