Embers in the Wind
A Letter To Mrs Laurant
Please forgive me but I cannot come home. Some very important matters have come up and even if I were to ignore them and come home danger would follow me to your door. I cannot put you and father in danger. Please understand that I write the truth. If you can please try to convince father not to look for me. My betrothal to Jaques Duval has been cancelled, so you needn’t worry about looking bad in front of the Count.
I travel with a paladin and a cleric so you can me assured I am in good company. I pray for you and father every night and think of you often.
