My Beloved Ethany,
I am sorry it has taken so long to send you news. Please don’t worry, for I am safe. Thankfully, I received word from Aiden that you all had arrived unharmed, which comforted me. I pray your travels went well and that the girls believe this to be nothing more than a family excursion.
The six days and nights past have been much occupied in deep council. A neuvo-kuisa they call it. In this grand council, which High King Gaston and Queen Älodiä gathered, it surprised me to see that more than just humans represented. I recognized Kimmeldell the Bold of the Kutollum, the Evolu, the Iskäri and even the reclusive Nocturi.…and one other.
Of all the people to find, Charles is here. Just when you think you know your friend. He is blessed to claim the confidence of the crown and I soon discovered it was he that recommended me for this task. He shared my blighted history with the council even though the others of our Order scowl at me. No doubt they seek vengeance for my sacrilege against magic.
