My Dearest Fen,
If you are reading this, please know that I am sorry that I did
not have the chance to say goodbye in person. I have been in service to your family for three generations, loving each of you as my own.
After you left, I received word from Vay that a great friend of mine in the House has begun a rapid decline and her memory is quickly fading. For whatever time she may have left and despite whatever the toll it will take on me, I must be at her side. I pray that you will understand and forgive my hasty departure. I am set to leave
with King Roarke and D'Hir who have graciously offered to send be the rest of the way to Kanabulan with escort. I can teach you no more, my dear Fen.
With Much Affection,
Your adoring Hetta
Dear Lady Fenwick,We leave today to Cznor. In all this time since you've been gone
I have not regained sufficient courage to speak freely with the King and Queen. I shall be eternally grateful for the trust and kindness between us. As I return to my home, it is my utmost concert that D'Hir and I must suffer the loss of our loved ones once more, only now as we rewrite history with the truth that must be told I fear is will be more painful to him than the lies.I must apologize to you, Fen, that I have you at a terrible disadvantage. D'Hir's letters to me spoke countless volumes of your warmth, beauty and great tenacity. When the dust has settled, I should like very much to have the opportunity to see you again.Until then,Roarke
