A different ending to the story arrived to my head today!
Since I have gotten attached to Gardien, I say he deservers a better ending. :I
Ok so you know the sad alternative ending 1? huntertallonian.deviantart.com…
I've chosen that for the cannon ending.Attached to the chosen ending ( Cut off the part where he dies ):
He finally collapses, sadness about to stop his broken heart. But as he layed on the grassy ground, a small blue glow under the stump's roots catches his eyes. With the little strength he has, he moves the roots, making an opening to a hole. Joy shows on his face. He has found an egg. And the child belonged to him and his wife. The tree has been keeping it warm. He didn't question how, thought. This discovery has given him so much happiness that everything slipped his mind. He carefully takes the egg into his arms and promises his beloved he'll take care of it. After a short silence, he leaves.
