Setting aside her question, on his inability to shift back to his natural form, he watched the woman become engulfed in sadness, at the loss of her daughter. "There has been far too much death, so many families destroyed, and for what, because neither side can put aside their old grudges. People like Varian Wrynn, and Garrosh Hellscream, have no right to rule anything, they are so consumed by hatred with one another, they cannot see the pain their war causes. The Horde attacks, and kills, the the Alliance retaliates, it's a vicious cycle that has no winner at the end, because those that are lost can never be returned. This war has left too many families broken, I had hoped after the threat of Deathwing had passed, people would see the benefits of coexistence, but Garrosh, and Varian, are too war hungry to see that they are the ones that allow evil to fester on Azeroth. I do not know the pain of losing a child, no one would fall in love with a cat after all, but I do know the pain of losing everyone you love. I have no blood family left, all were killed ten thousand years ago, the sadness and despair I felt then, is probably much like what you feel now, I felt as though I didn't want to go on."
The druid paused and sighed, "The only thing that had kept me going for ten thousand years, was a promise I made to my sister, a very tenuous thing to hold onto, some might even say a worthless thing to hold onto. Now I have someone who is like a daughter to me, that I fight for, that keeps me going, I know it is hard, but we must look to the here and now, and to the future. You still have those that depend on you I assume, more children, and your niece, one day I expect Lori to not need me anymore and move on, and leave me alone once more, but you, children always depend on their parents no matter their age. They always need your love, and kindness, that's the bond of family, unconditional love, remember those you have lost, keep them in your heart, but don't let the sadness blind you to the people you still have. I am sure my words bring you little if any comfort, I advocate peace between the nations, but your anger at the Blood Elves is justified, but vengeance only breeds more vengeance, the vicious cycle of war will only subside, if we can learn to forgive, no matter how hard it may be to do so. That is just an old cat's opinion though, and I am not trying to tell you how to live your life, besides I am sure you are thinking what does he know of my pain, I assure you I have experienced pain that no person should have to experience, but that story, like the one about my being in my cat form, is for another time, if my words haven't so alienated you that you don't want to be near me, believe me it wouldn't be the first time."
The cat's eyes reflected his deep sadness, sadness for his own pain, but also sadness for the pain others experience, and sadness at being always seeming to drive away the people around him. " I am sorry for what you have experienced dear lady, but I came out here because your niece is worried about you, and we could really use your strength against whatever is causing the events here in Duskwood. The others have already left Darkshire, your niece among them, I assume you came with her to protect her, set aside your anger for now, and focus on what could possibly threaten all of Azeroth. Keep an eye on the Blood Elf if you wish, but for now our best possibility for success is to work together...." The druid coughed violently, blood finally coming up, the druid smiled, "Damn I guess my injuries were worse than I thought," he coughed up more blood, "the others went after the Dark Riders, if you hurry you can catch up to them, but I think I will just take a little nap." The cat collapsed, blood flowing out of his mouth, his damaged ribs had finally caught up to him, before he passed out he though, I really shouldn't have been so stubborn, despite how angry she was with me I am sure Shinaria would have taken care of me, well hindsight is always twenty, twenty, but this time my stubborness may have gotten me killed.
