Hi Adaneth! welcome back to civilization, hope that you enjoyed your vacation in the Wilds...
Love this chapter, and I will say the same that in my other comment, this people are so suspicious...Dirmaen is only looking for the bad signs, not a good thought in that head...Well, she is so cold (in his mind) that I can blame him.. I can feel his torment, to love without hope (well not my experience)...At least he is better and they are able to talk to each other. He needs to get rid of this guilt that he is feeling for leaving them, it doesn't do any good and no one can control everything, it wasn't his fault, can you, please tell him?
Fransag has become hard, but I can understand, she is a formidable woman, just different to Saelon, which now seems more easy.
Love to read your story, waiting for more and thank you
