This week, my location shifts to the Moraltan capital of Kaleva, where rebels opposing the Empress Teodora have just been defeated. Janna’s husband Dimir, one of the rebels, has just come to tell her that all is lost and she has to flee to the countryside with their two small children.
“I can’t do this by myself-you must come with us,” Janna said, her voice trembling.
Dimir sighed. “I helped start all of this; I can’t run away now.”.
“Of course you can,” the tears finally spilled over. “No one will notice if you don’t go back.”
