"My time is short, I must act quickly.
Atrus gave us hope and imbued us with the mission of finding linking books in the old City. However, my passion blinded me. My companions warned me not to enter this dangerous place, but out of desperation and our failure to find any linking books thus far, I boldly explored this ominous chamber.
Now, I am alone. I have become separated from my team and I fear I may be the only survivor. I MUST find a linking book soon. My foolishness may have cost my team their lives, and now all hope for restoring D'ni is in danger of dying along with me.
I have no more time to write, already the ceiling is collapsing."
