Eventually—after standing around waiting breathlessly for several minutes—Eva and Aly were beginning to lose hope—when a figure finally rose from the water, emerging as it walked out of the Payne.

It was Seven―completely naked and fully healed from every burn that they had witnessed him endure—walking tall toward the shore. He waved, smiling as he did.

Eva's angel had come back her now.

She ran into the water—into his arms—and she could feel their spirits reuniting. She could not believe any of it.

"Oh, Thank God. Baby you're alive.""I'm alive, babe. Everything is going to be okay. I promise, we will be okay."

Seven nodded at Aly as they approached her on shore, acknowledging her help in saving his life. It was a gift.

He walked over and gave her a long hug. He cupped her face gazing in eyes.

"But tell me, how did you know."

"Olin told me all about the Payne—and how it had healed his broken arm."

"Oh, I remember, we were playing prey and predator by Camp Utopia. I took him down too hard on the docks—and he fell right in, right on top of jagged rocks.

"His arm was busted, and he could not even climb to shore—so I had to jump down after him. But b

s to restore Olin.

The water then fell away, in just the same way as had for Saven—and Olin came crashing back down into the Payne—soon to re-emerge from the river—miraculously renewed—except for his eye.

He pointed at the socket. "I must have some kind of a mental block, " he quipped. "Maybe it will come back to me."

He shook Seven's hand, hugging him, grinning to be alive—and their bond felt strong for the first time in many years.

"May your dogs always roam, " Olin recited the old Bane family blessing, slapping Seven hard on one shoulder.

"May you never run out of hills to climb—nor valleys to cross—nor suns to send down, " Seven said, reciting it from memory. It was a moment to remember.

"Love, brother, " they said together.

They hugged now for the first time.
