Several days before the death of Toede and battle at Ogreshield, the elf-blooded warrior Drake was troubled. He was needed elsewhere, for a matter of duty and obligation, and had to leave his new companions. Before he left, possibly for his death for the forces he opposed were formidable, he approached Elsebeth and dropped to one knee. He offered her a gift, a wedding gift.

She accepted.

That night they were married in a quiet ceremony by Arthur, and spent one night together as man and wife. Their first. Their last.
