K. reminded the princess that they had come to make things better for all of F., not to surrender to sorrow this early.Old sorceresses have no shortage of wisdom we are not ready to hear.
On a happier note, I had left a loose thread in the second volume when the baroness of L. ran off to marry the man she loves. Was the barony supposed to rule itself?
It turns out she did have a younger brother. I had forgotten to mention that he, along with her grandfather and great aunt, attended her wedding. At that time she relinquished title and the family, friends, star singers, and their suzerain recognized baby brother as the new baron.
He is now fighting on the side of the princess. His sister, the star singer and sorceress, does what she can from afar.
The persons of power are about to add more magic to the struggles for the throne. But will any of them go so far as to conjure a pestiferous dreng?
Total suckburger of a day with myself and all my coworkers feeling like wrung out dishrags by the end of the work day.
Tomorrow is Friday.
Sweet dreams, my virtuous vipers!
Hey, snakes need love too.
