    What I should have said

    In another time, in another place, you would have supported me.

    If I told you about this all, about the people who had hurt me and refused to apologise. About the ones who made me feel like a terrible mother by indirectly suggesting I was not putting my daughter first. About the people who doubted me happiness, desire the amount of times I told them I was happy. About those who told me I was lying and changing the narrative, when all I was really doing was trying to make them understand.

    If I told you about those people, who didn't listen, who didn't say sorry, who didn't care, you would have been appalled. Instead, though, my friends, this time it is you. You who have been my support all these years - it is you.

    You are the ones who refused to say sorry. You are the ones who told me I lied. You are the ones who said I was changing my mind, when I did not even understand the context to begin with. You revealed new things you were upset about, from me. I altered my apology and explanation to take that into account.

    That is not me changing the tale. That is me adapting.

    My friends, if I told you this tale from a third party, who would have supported me, laughed with me and cried with me. You would have told me that I am not worthless, and that I am still a good mother.

    Instead, my loves, this tale involves you as the villains, and so it is with a heavy heart that I must begin to admit this friendship has failed.

    Philomel stood at the edge of the darkness, tears dripping down here face. She felt lost, isolated, like she was the only person in the world who truly could understand. Not even her best friend, Vaeron, could know the pain she currently felt right now, not even her on and off lover Shinsou. Because this was so personal, this was so individual. Only she had had her extraordinary life's with of experiences. Only she had lived through the agony of it all and made the choices.

    Only she, she was determined, could understand. Which was why she stood at the edge of the chasm that looked only into darkness. A rend in the earth that had been opened when the volcano that shook the entire world erupted. Indeed, the time of Ashfall had ended, the meteor fragments had been gathered, and obsidian discovered, but there was also this. Known locally as the Rift, it was a break in the rocks at the Jagged Peaks of Corone, hidden amongst the cragged valleys. It was where Philomel had come to think, after the ultimate betrayal.

    Her closest allies had done it. Her generals had done it. Finally, after a long series of arguments about something small that had gotten it of proportion they had finally decided to go rogue and leave her, taking away her ship. Now all she was left with was her fortress and the legacy of an army and hundreds of brothels under her guidance.

    So still a lot. But less than what she had had.

    And more, because there was the pain. Because those who were once her right hands could not understand why she needed a bodyguard, needed a throne and needed and heir.

    And they didn't understand why she was round with child again.

    She couldn't even remember what the original conversation had been exactly. Or what precise word and phrase had instigated the argument. One moment it had been peace, the next there had been accusations firing, mishearings and an inability to accept one's fault in all of this. Blame, anger, frustrations - they had all been theirs.
