First Day of Winter: Morning

I wake up relatively early after a full night of rest. Pip is already up, and caring for the children in the nursery. I set about making breakfast for us both. When the pancakes are ready, Pip joins me, and we eat our meal. We clear away the plates, and I head back into the nursery to care for the children while my husband prepares himself for work.

He gives the kids and me a short kiss before heading out the door. I spend my afternoon looking after the babies. It’s becoming increasingly more exhausting to care for them, what with two toddlers and an infant. A small part of me is eager for the twins’ next birthday. I know that things will get a little easier when they’re old enough to go to school.

“I have come from the End of the World. From the River of Dreams, through the gauntlet and the Briar and the Deep Wyld, in order to stand before you today. I have but one request—to take my place at your side. To resume my duty as your knight, and to protect you and your kingdom for as long as I draw breath.”
