I have two things to ask of you, and I do not ask them lightly.
First, I need you to retain the favor of the warchief. She will undoubtedly have questions, and seeds of distrust may begin to grow, but she cannot lose you as an ally. Not now. She would not so willingly part with one of her greatest champions.
In order to do so, it will have to look like you faced me in combat, and lost. I trust you can take a hit.
Second, I ask you not to follow me further. I must make this journey alone.
