This short story is written in two new characters' points of view: Ashe and Lyrisa. Ashe owns a keel and he would collect paying passengers to take them across the waters. One day he takes on a Silver princess and a small Red family with two women and a boy and a girl. At first, everyone is wary of a powerful rich Silver, but they, later on, loosen up around her. Lyrisa says that she is a princess and that she is currently running away from her betrothed, Orris Cygnet. She needs to be taken to the Gates across the Lakelands to seek shelter. She speaks of his horrible temper and his bad drunken habits. She claims that he is hungry for revenge and he will do anything to stop her and take her back. When the night falls, she and Ashe are talking when all of a sudden the calm waters start to 'erupt' and take away the innocent young little boy and start to drown him. Lyrisa is confident that this is in fact Orris' work. Lyrisa jumps in to save the boy, revealing that she is in fact a Strongarm, and she rescues him back to his family. Ashe is furious that she didn't tell him sooner and he pushes her away emotionally. When they reach near land and it is nearly Lyrisa's stop, they detect someone coming from the woods in front and it is in fact Orris and his other friends. Ahead of time, Ashe and his crew already have a plan but they only told Lyrisa a small portion of it. Part of the plan is Ashe holding Lyrisa at gunpoint and to see if Orris Cygnet is persuadable.
