After returning from his meeting with Selonis, Marku began searching out Cerin. The Lion had puzzeled him and the burly Zenith hoped that Cerin might be able to help him figure some things out, if he was around without Zahara. This was not a topic to be aired in her presence.
<Cerin> "The door is unlocked." he annouces just before Marku knocks.
<Cerin> "Your footsteps. Please, take a seat..." he sets down the quill and turns to face him.
<Cerin> "What aid did you ask of him?"
<Markuran> "Any aid. I think he agreed to lend us his essence, but he left before he would speak further. I will see him again in a month."
<Markuran> "Matters of Creation, I assume. He said Celestial Gods could not get involved."
<Cerin> "That would fit with the fragments we discovered though. The gods of Creation are not allowed in Heaven, after all."
<Cerin> "I would now guess it is the Sun who has barred all Exalts from Yu-Shan too. Hmmm."
<Markuran> "Do you know how we can do this?"
<Cerin> "You are his priest. Perhaps if more people worship his glory he will listen again. I am not sure that I could sneak into Yu-Shan to talk to him myself."
<Cerin> "Then do something about it!" Cerin speaks "Come with me to Ssithumi, talk to her about her people's worship of the sun. Talk to your tribal leaders, to the leaders of the Marukani, the Crosanti, get them to pray to the Sun. If enough people talk he will listen at some point."
<Markuran> "I had begun such works. But now with the army of false Exalted against us, I let the idea drop."
<Markuran> "I have been busy with other things."
<Markuran> "That is true..I will resume my efforts. I wonder if the Celestial Gods can at least walk in Creation, it would ease the conversion to have Selonis present."
<Cerin> "You need one such as Selonis at your side to talk to people about your god? Maybe he can? Maybe he cannot? I would start without him. You are a powerful man with words. "
<Markuran> "I know that. I plan to start without him, but in some of the more restless areas, he would be an asset. He might even help to convince the great cities to the north, Nexus, Great Forks and Lookshy."
<Markuran> "Just the things that matter."
<Cerin> "Just so."
<Cerin> "Your gem worked wonderfully by the way, my thanks once again."
