You can still feel a faint heat on the back of your hand, where Kalinda pressed her lips. You have to assume that her touch was more than a kiss; it was a symbol of Arachnos' favor, and perhaps also a blessing.
Earning Arachnos' Favor
It began with a simple task. Kalinda believed you could be trusted with an official Arachnos operation, and so she sent you to mop up some Snakes.
Kalinda's superiors were impressed with both your skill and your brutality, and so you were given another assignment. You had to remove a nest of Snakes from an Arachnos base. While there you learned the name of their leader, Syrus.
Kalinda wanted Syrus taken down, and you were happy to oblige. Now, Arachnos smiles on you--at least for the moment.
