Major Walters, Iï¿½ve just been shown a newspaper. My apologies for not understanding the effect this situation was having on your life. ï¿½ ï¿½I donï¿½t need your apologies, Princess. ï¿½ ï¿½How much crap are you getting about what happened? ï¿½ ï¿½Thatï¿½s not your business,ï¿½ he said, which was almost as good as a yes. ï¿½ ï¿½Yeah,ï¿½ and that one word was not happy. I told him the briefest version I knew about the reporter and Beatrice, and that the queen had given it to me to clean up.
He approached you after Essus died. ï¿½ I think all of us across the room held our breaths in that moment. I had not known this. The looks on everyoneï¿½s faces around me said that most of them had not either. Only Adair and Hawthorne behind their helmets were still hidden from their surprise. ï¿½I warned you of his treachery,ï¿½ Barinthus said. ï¿½ Her smile did not match her words, but then neither did the constant caressing of his face and shoulders. ï¿½When Meredith came of age, you turned to her.
Perhaps Goddess calls them home when they have done their work. Or perhaps she calls them home until someone comes again that is fit, or suited, for them. I felt that small swell of warmth and comfort that was the voice of the Goddess. That tiny quiet voice that lets you know youï¿½ve thought a smart thing, or asked the right question. I would try to use guilt to get Andais to agree to allow me to call in the police. I did not have much faith in her ability to be emotionally blackmailed, but she still did not know that one of the greatest relics of the faerie courts had returned.
