Eragon enters his tent with Gertrude and the newly born baby as Arya waits outside. He then starts to formulate the spells he would need to heal the baby with the help of Saphira. Once he and Saphira are satisfied with their spells, he begins to utter them in the form of a song. The work takes him through the night and when all is done the baby girl is healed of her cat lip and is returned to Horst who names her Hope. Tired, Eragon returns to his tent where he rests.
