To: High Prince Altair
From: Prince Whelan of the Realm of Waters
It was so good to see you and to be able to find time to speak with you as well face to face.
I feel I must apologize for something, however. I was so surprised with the gift you presented to me that I fear I did not thank you. I have never seen bloodstone cut quite so delicately before with so many flecks of color, and in the shape of a lotus flower!
Please forgive me for not expressing my gratitude, and allow me now to say thank you so very much for the thoughtful gift.
You have only been gone a couple of days and yet, I wonder when I might see you again. I hope we won’t have to wait until the next feast day.
I am f I find myself
I would simply like to see you again, when we are able.
Until then, I hope all is well in the Realm of Night and that you have settled comfortably back into your own space. I know what it is to crave one’s own bed when you’ve been away.
Write to me when you can.
