He holds Leareth while Melody gives him back his Mindspeech and his mage-sight. Distracts him with conversation about the prevalence of Gifts in Velgarth.
He is thinking about Leareth, about how much he knows, about how many questions he went out and found the answers to himself because it might be relevant, might open the door to a better world. He wants him. It's barely even distracting anymore but he wants him. Advise them to go somewhere else, Findekáno said about Vanyel and Stef, but of course this Maitimo cannot have no matter where he goes.

His Thoughtsensing amulet will keep this train of thought safely away where Leareth cannot see it.
