Alexander and Alestria
"Tears spilled from my eyes, though I could not have said why. Soon my own body gave me the explanation: it had found the other half lost when it fell from the skies.
My hands, arms, hips, stomach, the backs of my knees, the tips of my toes...all slotted into the contours that had been waiting to make a whole with them. They embraced and knotted together, becoming a tree with roots spreading over the steppe, plunging into rivers, and climbing up to the sky." -Shan Sa
