My Beloved Ethany,
King Kimmeldell brought me a visitor today. It was Charles. It seems strange to me - his visits. I am questioning what his part is in all of this. I was, however, looking forward to seeing a friendly face.
But that is not what I saw. In fact, I may have not recognized him in another setting. His hair, which was once neatly trimmed, is now shaggy and unkempt, and his face, which was once handsome, is now scarred, creased, and unshaven. Even his eyes had a fire in them that made him look stern. Could these be the effects of fighting on the front lines of this war since I saw him last? He, we both, have aged a great deal.
Charles related to me impassioned, the conditions of the war, the devastation and death plaguing the land. Not a single village or city to the south has survived. Mahan now controls Tämä-Un and the Prime Gate.
It will surprise you to hear what happened next, my dear. For you probably believe it isn’t in either of our nature.
