~ Iunday, 27th of Aprilis, 11831 ~ Pierre had never plotted a murder before.

~ Return ~

~ Siwenday, 21st of Prima, 11805 ~ Lord Dorian, Steward of Piques, sat across from Duc Felicien, who had been his childhood friend so very long ago.

2.28 ~ Meetings

~ Qvattorday, 23th of Aprilis, 11831 ~ Pierre once more read over the missive he had received from the prison that morning.

2.25 ~ Blancræft

~ (Continued) Siwenday, 19th of Aprilis, 11831 ~ Pierre would not let her out of bed. And not, as she desired in her thoughts, as her husband.

2.24 ~ Dinner

~ (Continued) Hexday, 18th of Aprilis, 11831 ~ Those that had been chosen to have their fortunes told reunited with those that had stayed behind.

2.23 ~ Dead

~ (Continued) Hexday, 18th of Aprilis, 11831 ~ “Wolfram!” It was like her voice filled his soul. He expected her eyes to open and to see her smile up at him, but she lay still. Yet in his heart, his mind, he felt her with him. The young Suitor of Death sat back on his... Continue Reading →
