Saphira enjoys some time to fly and hunt deer along the Jiet River, but would rather have done it with Eragon. Roran returns, though Martland Redbeard lost a hand in the fighting. After talking about their tale with Nasuada, Nasuada revealed that if Eragon doesn’t contact her in one day, then she’ll send Arya to send a letter. Saphira then asks Roran to visit her and talk about what Eragon was like before she was born. He seemed to be occupied in something including Katrina.
