Dawg felt a lightness of heart come over him and smiled. He was taken by surprise as it was the first time in a while that the smile felt genuine
since he had met Anteros. It didn't feel forced and this contrasted with the story that Anteros had been telling him as he wandered through the
“What’s happening?” Dawg wondered out loud.
Anteros spoke in his mind, “I don’t know either, but it feels good…even righteous. I think that I am about to be set free.”
“Free? The Wizard is releasing you? Doesn’t that make you think that something odd is going on?”
“Remember, the Wizard was my Warden here, and yet he could not release me, even if he wanted too and I’m sure he did at times.” Anteros
chuckled. “What kept him here also kept me here. I think that he is being released and as such, so am I.”

A tear streaked down Dawgs face as he felt his mind becoming completely his own again. “Take care Anty, I hope you find the peace you are looking
for.” he thought.
“I’m sure I will”, were the last thoughts that Anteros said, catching Dawg off guard.
“He always has to have the last word,” Dawg muttered. He looked around the forest, listened for the ocean and heard nothing. “Crap! I’m lost!
He cupped his hands to his mouth. “Hello! Anyone, out there?!” Nothing.
“Sumabitch.” Dawg started downhill as downhill led to streams or rivers which led to people.
