My dearest Cecily,

I slept with your cross in my hand this market weekend. It has been a year, a full year since I let you out of my sight. If He, in His infinite mercy, quoniam in aeternum misericordia eius, brings you back to me, I will not let you from it so simply again.

Your ghosts are back and walking again - brother and Sire both - and though I'd like to say it was a pleasure to see both, in truth I only enjoyed the company of your brother. Your Sire...polite, but immediately involved in some business which I do not know the nature of. We will talk, she and I. The rest of it - magi and treaties and fae and the threat of imminent demise ever looming at our doorstep - can wait until you are home and rested.

Wake soon, best beloved, and come home to me.

My dearest Cecily,

We continue to fall apart without you here to aid me - I do not know how much longer I can clutch all the strings myself, and there is no one I can trust. I was never made for this, I know, but if I leave how many lives will be lost...or worse yet, ruined? I suspect that it is worse to live in Ushaw Moor than to die in it - no place I have yet been makes me so badly wish to leave it, and yet I cannot.

I cannot because I spent much of my Shabbat crying. I cried with Gideon, promised that I had a home for him away from this madness and death. What if I had not been here? Where would he find solace? I cried with Sir Beckett's betrothed - she happy, and I terrified for her soul. Quoniam in aeternum misericordia eius, I hope my words lodged themselves in her heart and take root. Who would she have turned to, were I gone?

Of course, as well, I wait for you - I will wait for you, best beloved, until the town is in cinders around my feet. Who knows how close that day is?

I remain,
