Raddok watches in some consternation Kiet being lifted by the Vily to the specified tree. He had told Kiet that he could climb some, but usually it was cliffs & rock, not trees. He silently thinks he can, but suddenly the Vily carries Kiet away before he has a chance to say anything. When Kiet returns holding the brass box, Raddok’s eyes widen, & he quickly faces the Vily, bows deeply, falling upon one knee in deep respect & offers thanks for the help. He then quickly follows Dorhak and the others, carrying all his gear, & telling Kiet that he does have some climbing ability, but he’s usually used it for cliffs, not trees. He apologizes that he didn’t have a chance to tell him earlier; he had been focused upon the amulet, a new experience for him.
He asks how long it will be before they can stop and study all the things that have been found. Does the key fit the box? Wasn't there a bag or pouch found somewhere? What was in it? He says to Kiet & Dorhak that the smallest items might hold clues if all the information was shared among them all. He, for one, was feeling rather stupid at the moment, & mutters to himself if he could climb a tree although he had not tried in a couple years. His last experience had been helping to cut down a dying tree that was dropping dead branches onto a narrow mining trail, endangering the entrance trail. He had done all right then, although that tree was leaning & not upright, & was not so tall.
