I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. I know you wanted us to have no part in this war and not get Marked, but we had to. It’s for the best. And I know Vincent chose well for us. His Majesty has it right. Peace can only last for so long, Mom. Vince suggests you pick a side, too.
I pray it’s our side.
I love you, Mom. Hope to see you soon.
