More to the point, keep Valerian from abusing him. Would really love to see Valerian and Brioc in Feyd's bad graces,

So very hard for the women to stay behind.  Poor Richenda, remembering the past and fearing the future.

Beautiful moving chapter.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Heart wrenching chapter. Hoping that Brendan, Kelric, Javan and those that go with them will be able to fulfill  Brendan's  promises, bring Washburn home restored, and come  home safe with peace restored  throughout the kingdom

Poor Columcil, sorry his experience  in Rhemuth has turned out so badly. Hope he will tell Duncan all that he is feeling. Duncan really needs to know it all. I understand why he wants to go, but it will be a great loss to Kelson if he goes. And if Washburn does somehow survive and is brought back to Rhemuth, I think Columcil  would be the one who could best heal him.

Oh if only Columcil had dared to give Jaxom that duty at the bottom of the garderob shaft.   LOL.

I do so hope that our beloved Duncan can convince our beloved Columcil that blood is thicker than holy water and that he is welcome back soon and anytime, and that he would happily be given any perish of his choosing, including duties here in Rhemuth if he so choose. Nepotism is a real thing in the Middle ages.

Right about now, I really want to tell The King's Grace that it takes one to know one (re: Darcy's impudence), but it seems perhaps not the best of timing to smart-mouth Kelson.  :D ;)

I really would like to hear Columcil tell Duncan Everything he thinks and feels about what has happened  since he came to Rhemuth.

Laurna, I almost cried at Richenda's distress. Beautifully and movingly written.  I hope all our good guys will be coming home at the end, all in good health.  I wouldn't mind much if someone managed to shoot Valerian through the heart & remove his despicable presence from the 11 kingdoms. Good reading, all!! And why do I suspect Aliset may not remain placidly in Rhemuth?

Great writing Jerusha. Actually I felt Kelson allowed Darcy quite a lot of licence and allowing him to talk to Aliset was graciously done, and an indication of his recognition of Darcy's honour.  Just as well he and Darcy will never meet on equal terms, though, or he might have reason to regret his last question and the remarks that followed it.  I seem to remember  Evie have  Sextus think, "Sarcasm does not become a Haldane",  it's  a pity that Duncan wasn't  there to tell him that impudence doesn't either.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

Washburn and Feyd are starting to remind me of Alaric and Bishop Arilan in the early books. Egad!

At least Washburn is able to study the scroll with a clear head.

Your description of healing is really interesting Laurna.

Your description  of healing was wonderful. I hope Wash will  get to learn it but not feeling very optimistic at the moment. If this is how Feyd treats people he likes would hate to see  what he would do to someone he doesn't like. Will Darcy have to destroy Wash to protect others? A terrible thought! And when Feyd says it will be best for everyone  else if his plans work out, who is the exception? So many questions.

Good one, Laurna!

And as a calligrapher myself, I will say that it can be very easy to misinterpret older script styles and certain scripts have a lot of letters that look quite similar to each other.  My personal go-to script is Gothic Textura Quadrata, and when you get going in that script, words like "minimum" can look like the exact same pen stroke repeated over and over again.

Here is an example, from a 14th C. Bible (in Latin, and the text is from the Old Testament book of Numbers), just so you have an idea what I mean about the script.

You were certainly right about eh calligraphy! Would hate to try to read that one! I hope Wash is getting something out of the scroll that will help him later. I think he is part of some revenge The Scholar is taking on Valerian. It's good that St. Camber is with the Morgans, but they are his descendents, so he should be. Awaiting more! Great writing, Laurna, on the recent pieces. Everyone is writing well!
