I write this with a heavy heart as the day breaks of the second day after Raven was killed, the sad part in all this, she died simply because she loved my Dad, not because she was against those in power, or because she did harm to another but simply because she loved him, and she did love him, her killer eluded us which leaves me to believe he was sent by the High Council, a detail I plan on not revealing to my father, should I do so I fear he attempt to kill them all as he did half a century ago.
I love my father and I liked Raven, there was no need for this but she had power over him and that power is why she was killed, not because she had but because she refused to wield it and bring him back under the High Councils command, Dentarius is a free and independent state, free of the High Councils influence and as such free of my mother, I would have believed it was her except for the fact this simply isn’t her style, if it was my mother, she would have done it herself and been sure my father saw her do it. I knowing my heart that he wouldn’t her, it would only have serve to fracture their already fractured relationship. Wow did I really just use fracture twice in one sentence? What do you know Lord Mandran I did learn something from in class after all.
I will keep searching for her killer, until I have sunk a blade through their heart, at least then my father can have some peace, he may be angry I chose to omit details from him, but he hasn’t the strength to fight me on this right now, he’s slipping and I can see it, without her there isn’t much of Kane Elcarus left, I pray he finds peace soon for the sake of us all.
