He saw that his white hair was blowing in the wind. He could even see his Face was illuminated by the leaping flames.

When he saw me, he shouted, “Charles! Where's your mother?” Since I was not aware I told him that I didn't know, he said, “Find her! Bring her here! She'll never see anything like this as long as she lives."
