Letter Five: Whelan to Altair

To: High Prince Altair
From: Prince Whelan of the Realm of Waters

High Prince Altair,

I want to thank you again for the lovely dinner. You are right. There is nothing quite like the view of the stars from the Realm of Night. They are so much closer–so much brighter–and I have never seen the moon so gloriously shining; not even when, as a youngling, I would swim toward the horizon in an attempt to catch it.

Seeing you there, unfettered by responsibility, and simply enjoying yourself…well, I admit it was a great pleasure for me. Forgive my boldness, but you are handsome to the point of breathtaking most especially when you are so relaxed.

What would it be like, I wonder, to live on an island floating in the air? How does it change your perspective of the world and the Elves who live below? Do you believe the stories of the Great and Ancient Issarra of the Seven carving land from each of the clans and molding them together to create the Realm of Night in the sky? Is it strange to live in a world filled with magic and wonder if the old stories are true?

I suppose, should we find the opportunity to dine together again, we can discuss those very things.

I do hope that opportunity arises, though I know it will be difficult.

I know you are beginning the tour of kingdoms soon. Perhaps, when you visit the Watery Keep, we may find some time to speak privately.

Until then, be well, High Prince Altair.

Prince Whelan
