Not Mourning

Posted by Tikva on 12/30/17
I will not mourn for Aislin Ashford. In these dark days, dark tidings are common. Loss grips our hearts and we assume the worst. But I will not mourn for Aislin Ashford, my truest friend and the unfailing ally of this House and of the light against the dark. House Grayson will keep a lamp in our window for our lost friend, and it shall be kept lit. I will encourage my friend Duke Harlan to do the same for his missing sister.

If she is truly gone, I pray the gods keep her soul. But for now, instead, I pray the Gild light her path on this sojourn, wherever it may take her, and that one day we will see her again.

By my hand this 14th day of the 11th month of 1007,

Tikva Grayson
Princess of Bastion
