The fight had finished, the Howling Abyss was left far behind. Ahri wasn't even sure how long she had run. It had felt like hours... Days? No. Not days. The sun had barely sunk under the horizon when the woman had missed a step and ended up under a tree. Now, with the stars twinkling overhead, she was alone with only her thoughts.
