Jane, at last, was finally Knighted. Some people will slap an unconscious person to wake them. Landing on the rock and being taken to the other place was more like being woken by being hit with a semi truck. From both directions. What could not have lasted more then seven seconds felt like a week.
"Jane Eristalter, Knight of Space and Spear."
The pain subsided. Jane would become aware that her injuries were gone and her clothes had changed. A long spear was in her hand.
Unlike the others, Jane was not transported back to the cave. In fact, shortly after she was taken, the stone glowed more brightly then before. The light engulfed everyone in the cave, blinding them before they could move. Once they could see again, they were back in the place of light. Anyone who had injuries was healed. No pain existed. Nothing existed here. Nothing naturally anyway. For once, they were not alone. Looking around, the Knights could see each other nearby. The entire group was here.
There was one more person. Facing the Knights was a woman. A pale woman with reddish brown hair going down to her shoulders. She wore a simple white dress without sleeves. Looking down, one could see she was barefoot. Looking up one could also see she was not exactly looking at the Knights since her eyes were closed. Nevertheless, she turned her head one way then the other, "staring" for lack of a better word, at each individual.
"Greetings, Knights of the Four Worlds. I am called Irma. It is a pleasure to finally see you all."
Everyone could recognize her voice. It was the same one that had been in their heads. The one that had guided them here in the first place.

And it's a long way forward, so trust in me. I'll give them shelter, like you've done for me
