Blade Maidens: What Fools These Mortals Be – 13

“Archmage LaVell,

I would apologize for the repeated letters, but I am not in the least bit sorry for my actions. I know you have received them, Kristos. You and the rest of the goddamned board.

It’s been 7 years.

4 since Rhodeva.

Years my husband and sister are missing and you won’t get down from your tower and talk to me. Don’t even have the decency to say if they’re dead.

I don’t even care if I can’t tell anyone else. Even Phineas’ mother. I will look that poor, kind, broken women in the eye once a week for the rest of my days and not say a word about her son if you would just tell me what happened. Please.

You shook my hand at the faculty party years ago, you know, before you were elected. For Sulnalia. Said something about Phineas spending more time in the archives than the actual archivists. I wonder if you’ve always been this cool. Even back then. How many times you’ve smiled at someone you would shove into the Abyss if convenient for you.

I know you won’t read this. Just like the other dozens. But I won’t stop writing them. Not till I’m dead in the ground. I refuse to let you forget what you’ve done to me and my family.

Robar Vadislav”
