“I participated in the Grand Tournament of the Fury last night. I had not thought to see Lady Labariel there- she has often said that her days of covering herself in glory are long past. Nevertheless, she entered the lists alongside me, I think for my benefit.
And such a benefit it was. It was a gift to see her ride that day. Though she did not succeed, she rode well. I feel I learned much from her performance.
Ser Crumbs performed with distinction. Though he is nothing like the lean, powerful warbirds I saw in the Tourney, he served me well and faithfully. Perhaps battle is not his calling, but that is alright. I am simply glad he tried. I gave him a slice of cake for performing as well as he did.
After the Tourney, Lady Labariel took me to a secret place. I am bound by honor never to repeat what she said to me there. No living soul must ever know.
I can say this, though; Lady Labariel bid me understand that we who crave vengeance will ever be the authors of our own destruction. But without vengeance, how can there be justice?
I fear I do not understand.”
