My Beloved Ethany,
King Kimmeldell returned two days back to look upon our progress and impress upon us the necessity of bringing these trials to fulfillment in haste. He brought disturbing news about the war. The darkness has spread across the coast and will soon reach Vänkiläsä. We are no longer safe. He has orders to move us and as quietly as possible. Should the Vallen slaves escape, they would be our undoing.
The talent of the Gypsies has proven to be the salvation of our research. Shiro worked through the night to capture the remaining life force of the beasts. The screams were almost unbearable, but he was unerring on this. Vallen are strong in body and spirit, and the runes don’t know the difference between good and evil. Unfortunately, we don’t possess enough crystals to store all the life force, and many had to be put down by the blade. What a waste.
Much of what I write will not make sense to you, I’m sure. I find it difficult to separate myself from this work. I fear it possesses me.
