Sesskia’s Diary, part 83

3 Coloine She’s called me to attend on her tomorrow. I came back here to change my shirt, since Jaemis managed to spill soup on me at lunch. Small comfort that I drenched him in retaliation, but we both ended up laughing, and I was still laughing when I reached my room and found the…Continue reading Sesskia’s Diary, part 83

2 Coloine We didn’t do anything but sleep. In fact, Cederic was asleep when I came to his room, still fully dressed and lying on his back, mouth slightly open, snoring. I managed to wake him enough that I could help him take his clothes off, but I don’t think he was conscious. He’d had…Continue reading Sesskia’s Diary, part 82

1 Coloine, evening That was the strangest fight I’ve ever witnessed. Cederic won, but in a way Vorantor can’t use to accuse him of insubordination. And that is because my husband—yes, I’m calling him that, and it makes me tingle all over when I do—my husband is brilliant, and frankly, Vorantor never stood a chance…Continue reading Sesskia’s Diary, part 81

After breakfast I had another shock just now, and I’m still working out what to do about it. Terrael was not at breakfast. Audryn and Sovrin were at our usual spot when I arrived. Audryn looked radiantly happy. I hoped I didn’t. I hadn’t decided if I should tell them what had passed between me…Continue reading Sesskia’s Diary, part 80

1 Coloine (continued) When he was calmer, he said, without releasing me, “Tell me you love me.” It sounded more like a plea than an order, which made my heart ache for him again. “I love you,” I said. “And not because you told me to say it. I love you.” “Tell me I am…Continue reading Sesskia’s Diary, part 79

Sesskia’s Diary, part 78

1 Coloine It’s amazing the difference a new day makes. A new month, a new day, new beginnings all around. I feel as if I could leap from the observatory and fly to skim the ground below. After I finished my last record, I dismissed the see-in-dark pouvra and lay there in my pile of…Continue reading Sesskia’s Diary, part 78

30 Lennitay (continued) Cederic was there, standing where Vorantor had the first night I’d seen the room, looking over the edge at what lay far below. I had another moment of fear, but pushed it aside and walked toward him. He always knows it’s me, though I don’t know how. This time he probably heard…Continue reading Sesskia’s Diary, part 77

30 Lennitay (continued) Cederic was completely motionless. He didn’t even blink. “I see,” he said. Vorantor said, “Oh, Cederic. You still held out hope, didn’t you? Are you convinced now?” “No way to prevent it,” Cederic said, his lips barely moving. “You were right.” Vorantor put his hand on Cederic’s unmoving shoulder. “Don’t worry about…Continue reading Sesskia’s Diary, part 76
