The Queen & The Slave
I never regret and so you are not a charge that I regret having. I do not regret taking arms for you knowing that I had not healed from my last battle. I had not healed from my last charge, my greatest work aside from the creation of my own child. I don't regret reaching into the depths to pierce your heart or resurrect your spirit. It is a pity that I can not free you. It is a pity that our time is up. I sense something just past the horizon. There is something coming just out of my line of sight that I must prepare for. I have taken you as far as I can go. Your witch has control over you and as hard as I fight on your behalf the key to your freedom never did lie with me, my kingdom, or my sword. The key lies in you. My purpose was merely to shake you, to awaken your soul so that you could see the key for yourself. You have much at risk. I understand why you feel you can't take action. She is a threat to that which you love most in the world. She knows it and casts her spells against you. You stay locked in her wooden cage surrounded by her blood thirsty wild cats. You use your body as a barricade between the threat of death and the angels that hold your love. You are self-sacrificing. It is a virtue. You are caged & trapped. Your freedom comes at an impossible price. To attack is to invite the risk of loss. Yes, I understand why you don't take your stand but you are not dead. You are forced to stay where you are but her spells are merely surface spells. They don't hold the power that they appear to have. You can reclaim your power. She needs to be bound to you for survival. Her threats are empty and are very limited. In battle, I have seen thru to the core of her strength and there is nothing there. Her roots are shallow and weak. You now feel again. You have strength. You need not fear the thoughts that have to come to you. Her power comes from you. You have fed them for years. Reclaim yourself and use the key that will appear to you clearly. It may take years. Years spent in the preparation of your angels for the battle ahead of them but you will be victorious as long as you do not lose yourself again. She has convinced you that you are a slave and you believed but you have always been a fighter. You have been lost but you were never truly a slave. You have entrusted me with your core and I will keep it for you always. Once the years have passed you may come to claim it. There will always be a place for you in my kingdom, although it may not be in the queens chamber.
I've battled, i've bleed, and poured healing love into you. I put in all that I had to give for 6 full moons. I am honored that I was able to restore you but now I am drained. I have nothing more for you to claim. There is nothing left in me for you to escape into. All I can do for you now is be a trusted counsel, a constant support, and the keeper of your core. Over the horizon comes either a new charge or the person charged to restore me.
This journey has helped to heal me from my last journey. Know that I have loved our Journey. Keep your position, do not cause this all to have been in vain.
