How -- How -- You dare to lecture me about taking orders from Reeve! The man who managed to hold you under his thumb for years! The man who was to rule Atsiria in all but name while you hid behind your parties and your shinies -- how dare you!? Who was I supposed to work with in order to assure that this country survived while you ignored every pressing matter? Which one of us was almost murdered on multiple occasions while failing to see the consequences of her own blindness!

Your Majesty, if you were not above reproach ... Sands alive!

... He told her. She asked and he told her. He told her because he's now trying to get on her good side once more. Because Reeve the Bastard is now just like every other man.

I hope you rot under the sand, Reeve. It's too good for you.

I should be sad. But in a way, I'm glad? That doesn't sound right. Ooh, that makes me sound awful.

But Matthew -- oh, I know Matthew would want me to just be happy, and not being sad on a day that is really just another day... he'd want that!

And still, all these lives are not sacrifice enough for you?

What will it take? What will it take to make you mine again? How many years have I been trying, how many years have I been doing all that I could? Every throat I slit, I did for you. Every heart I pulled out, drained dry, the measurements and the numbers, the mathematics and the science. It should have worked.

Why hasn't it worked?

I always told myself that if I killed enough for you, you would see that it was what I had to do. Pillar or not. Soldier or not. Where are you, and what's become of you? Why won't you come back to me? I knew, I knew that if they died, if all of them died, I could use them to bring you back.

Come back.

I'll find more for you, if that's what it takes. I will kill every damned imbecile who gets in my way. I'll bleed the entire damned earth dry. I will bathe the mountains in blood if that is what it takes, give you every sacrifice that I can find. If only you will speak to me again.

Please ...

I saw them from the basin, but now I can confirm. First victim, male, middle aged, Kilian stock. Cut to the jugular, and two stabs to the chest. The first drew deep enough to kill, and both subsequent wounds are also fatal by themselves. Heart and lungs unrecoverable, even if someone had been there.

Second victim, male, middle aged, Kilian stock. Seven superficial slashes, and two fatal femoral wounds. Survived ... two hours. He played dead until after our view ended, and then he crawled over to this place where he died in fact.

Third victim, male, thirties, Kilian stock. Eight ... nine superficial wounds. Stabbed in the eye and throat. Coailinn correctly assumed the first morbid wound was non-fatal. Died quickly after. ... He's missing all of his blood. All of it. Like Andrew ...

Fourth victim, male, late twenties, Kilian stock. Three stabs in the back, and one in the back of his neck. Destroyed liver, severed spine. He couldn't move the whole night, and he likely bled out.

Any of my father's men would trade years to fight this well.

5 measly crates of Megami fruit. That's it? I know the country's gone, but I placed this order months ago. I know they were well on their way here before all of that happened, and hoped at least I'd get one last good shipment before it was gone for good. Of course he didn't even bother asking if I still wanted everything I ordered. He probably sold the rest of it to the first buyers on the dock to open their purses. I would have paid far better than they would, but how can I expect someone like him to have a bit of patience for a better deal. At least this will still make me a pretty profit. If I'm lucky I can sell it before the day's out. If any of this goes bad and has to be thrown out I'll be incredibly surprised.

The King sent me a letter. Did you know? Addressed to me, specifically. I never thought I'd have anything written in his hand, let alone written for me. But there it is.

He is sorry. Of course he is. He is sad that only one child of his dear friend still lives. He is relieved that the boy who carries his name still lives. He wants me to know that he mourns for Allba too. The poor man. He's already lost too much.

There are a lot of letters for me. Have you seen my desk? I haven't opened them all. I expect they'll all say the same things and I ... I don't think I can bear to read them. They surely don't expect me to reply. What can I say? "Thank you for your sympathy, as if you have also experienced the loss of everything you've grown up loving and caring about. Yes, I'm indeed devastated that my family are dead by no fault of their own, doing nothing, hurting no one. There's nothing that will help. Sorry."

I keep expecting there to be so many refugees, like in Emeron before the war. They aren't coming though. They're never going to come. We've had some, of course, but only Megami that were away from the country and that don't have anywhere to go home to now. It's nothing like the Korin refugees though. There's just so few of them.

I know where they've camped themselves. The twisted glen beyond the north gate -- do you know it? A traveler's clearing, with a pair of spruce trees in the center, growing around one another. There are only four of them.

We do have an idea for finding this artifact in your store. Based on the fact that any illusion magic must consume more of itself for every pair of eyes it has to affect, we came up with the idea that overwhelming the object with the presence of a great many eyes would force it to reveal itself. Now obviously we thought this might not make you very comfortable, but we do have something of an abundance of numbers to use in this instance. Also, we know you're rather curious yourself.

Hi! Sorry I haven't written in so long...things got so busy at my parents' shop. But I've been keeping an eye on the journals! Caiolinn is still missing...a girl claimed she'd seen her, but she might have been...I don't know. I haven't seen her in a while.

The group from the forest is still in Tarra. I've seen them in person and talked to them a few times, but not as much as I'd like to.

But enough about me. Are you doing okay? I mean...things have been really sad and scary since Megam, well...

I really miss you. Will you come back soon?

Something -- something's happened. I don't know what, exactly, but Amalea and I were walking, just walking, and -- she was using magic, I think, skipping a stone down the walk? And then there was a flash, and ...

Dragons, people are going to start stopping and asking questions and I can't speak the language. Amalea is injured, I don't think seriously but she's babbling in Kilian at the moment and I can't understand a word of it. If someone who can could meet us, please ...? We're only a block from the inn.

I think she's been burned, somehow. Dragons. What was that? It was a simple wind spell, what she was doing. She's done it before. She said it was an exercise Kilian children do, she's always doing things like this. Surely ...
