Now for the snippet:
Sigrid sighed as if she was explaining something to a young child, and as if her patience was wearing thin. “I’ve already told you the gods determined you and I were to meet. They showed this would come to pass. I admit I didn’t know someone would bind me and prepare me for sacrifice. I only knew fate planned for you to rescue me. It was not my place or even my right to go against what the gods have in store for any of us. I can only be a conduit to their ideas, but I can’t foresee or influence their motivations. Even when I cast runes, I only get glimpses into the plans fate has. People can still change those when they act of their own free will.”
“You had that much faith in me? That I would arrive in time and that I would know where to find you?”
