Last Day of Fall: Morning

Pip and I wake up early, and head straight to the nursery to check on the twins. Charles is still asleep, but Amerta is awake, and crying loudly. I quickly rush over and retrieve her from the crib. We take her into the kitchen and get her set up with a bowl of oatmeal, before grabbing some leftovers and sitting at the table.

Over breakfast, Pip tells me of last night’s burglary, and how we now need to purchase a new TV. This news, while disappointing, comes at a bit of a surprise to me. I can’t even begin to imagine why a thief would choose our house of all places to attempt a robbery. Ultimately, I’m grateful that the TV is the only thing missing. When Pip says he wished he had confronted the criminal, I am incredibly grateful he didn’t. I’d rather lose a piece of electronic equipment over my husband any day.

Once we’ve finished our food, Pip clears the plates away from the table while I care for Amerta.

“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.”
