(A letter from Sir Blake Beldevier to Mina Singer)
I remember the first time I saw you. I don’t think you noticed me. It was the first day of term and my first day at college. Vivien had sent me; she told me I would find the answer to the Holy Grail there. She laughed; a private joke.
You were reading Tennyson, your green eyes moving over the page like it was prey, your auburn curls pinned back with a small butterfly clip. I remember thinking, in the whole of The Realm, I had never seen anything as beautiful as you.
When I returned homethat evening to Vivien, she looked at me and she knew. Cupid’s arrow had struck so deep it caused a fever. For days I didn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep. It was as if somehow on our first meeting, I had left myself by your side and what returned to Meadowlake was merely my shadow.
I longed to be the words beneath your eyes, your hand sweeping the wild curls from your face.
You will never know how much I blame myself for the events that happened; how much I believe my love for you upset the delicate balance of the divine universe. Time is not meant to bend to the hearts of man, history not rewritten on one mans wish.
But there is one thing that I need you to know and that is, I wouldn’t change a thing. No matter where my duty calls me, what demons and monsters I am charged to slay, which foreign worlds I travel, you will be with me because you are my heart.
Ever your humble servant
