 Oh, nicely done

Well, so much for taking things one at a time. "Yarwin... That might not be possible, Helen. But wait, one dreadful story at a time.

"Corinian politics. You know, fond as I am of the Lords, sometimes I wonder if it wouldn't have been better to drown the lot at birth. Someone tried to kill Valin, they filled his bath with Basilisk parasites. Anaya was there then. Then someone went after the kids. Like you said, she'd never leave the children, she hared off to save them. By the time Valin and Cullen broke into the nursery, she was gone. Just gone. Not just missing in body, but her soul was gone too. Valin couldn't feel her, and she's not on the Web. Your ties and ours, no-one can find her. We looked, Helen, nobody wanted to give up, but eventually..."

She looked down at her hands, which were shaking slightly. Anaya had once risked her life to try to save Rhagi from Samara. She'd been the only person Ghet could communicate with after she'd been attacked by Ro's demon, unable to speak. "I was pregnant at the time. I was carrying twins, which would have been dangerous enough even if they were... normal. I couldn't help. I couldn't help. I was there when Valin died. He loved her so much, he just couldn't go on without her, living with that burning pain where she'd been. It hurts so much...

"And when he was resurrected, that pain was still there. It might have killed him all over again. So Chezlar broke the bond between them, so Valin could live. Chez... he knows more than we do, I wonder if he's allowed to say. Anyway, now Valin... he's back on the throne. But he's not... he's not like he was before."

She wiped away tears with the back of her hand and sank her gin and lime, letting Helen have a moment to breathe before they took the next step.
