Eithne released her bipedal form as soon as she reached the center of the field of sprouting emmer, dispersing her mass through the soil. It should have been a relief to do so. She should have been soaking in her home element, savoring the smell and taste of it, drifting off for a much-needed rest as the ground cooled for the winter.
None of those things were the case.
