"Sure." He holds out the piece of paper in her direction.

She takes them and has a look.

They are not the most coherent set of notes! Probably because Vanyel was not in great shape when he wrote them. His handwriting is much messier than usual, kind of wandering over the page, and it's mostly in single words, not sentences. 

did not kill Leareth

multiple gods? 

control of Valdemar

maybe controls Companions?

other gods involved making them

unclear if did lifebond

multiple gods???

"Maybe controls Companions like, maybe is the divine force behind them we already know about, or like more than we suspected -"

Vanyel rubs his eyes. "I think I meant the first thing, although - that was also complicated. I think what the Shadow-Lover was hinting at was that the Heartstone being in Haven means the Star-Eyed has some influence too, but. Cryptic." 

Permalink

Shiver.

Permalink

"I know. Especially given what happened, I don't much like it either." 

Permalink

"I guess I'll - render all this in a letter for Leareth -"

Permalink

Vanyel nods.

He also wants to ask how Leareth is doing and if being murdered was awful for him - they haven't had the ice dream again and he's not sure if they will, with Leareth in this new body - but it would probably upset her and so he doesn't.

She fumbles for her notebook. Drafts and then writes a clean version of what Vanyel's told her. "Anything I should post-script in?"

Permalink

"Er, can't really think of anything? I guess tell him I'm sorry about causing him to get an angry letter from Savil. But I do think it was worth it, even if we didn't learn that much, it's not like it was actually especially dangerous for me."

Glare. 

Permalink

"I don't really know how you safely stopped your heart."

Permalink

"I did it right outside Healers'? Also the Shadow-Lover always sends me back, even for injuries that caused way more actual damage." 

Permalink

"Friendly of him."

Permalink

"I mean, I think it's because I'm useful for his schemes somehow, not out of friendliness." 

Permalink

"Well, whatever you want to call it." She folds up her letter. Offers it to Savil.

Permalink

"Thank you. Er, you don't have to stay longer than this, if you'd prefer to get back to Rethwellan." 

Permalink

"I might as well give Amshalan the overnight to catch up with all her friends and stuff."

Permalink

"Right, we can set you up in a guest room then?" 

Permalink

"Thank you."

Permalink

Savil ushers her over to the guest wing. "It looks like the mage stuck around, so you can get a lift directly back when you want, no, er, risky stopovers." 

Permalink

Amshalan wanders up to her window. :Thank you for staying a bit longer, I'm excited to see all the new foals: 

Permalink

:Of course: Pet pet.

Permalink

Amshalan hangs out with her for a little while and then heads off to catch up on Companion-herd gossip. :I'll be right there if you need me, though: she promises.
