I’m not sure how I feel about Uncle Rhett right now. Sometimes I’m mad at him for attacking Ari and making it so she can’t be iin our family. She and I were going to create House Flops and House Penance and ally them into their own kingdom to take over the world.
On the other hand what she did was very bad and mom said it was even worse because she tricked Tibs into thinking he was with his wife. Mom says that she’s glad Ari is gone and that she would have been bad for us. Mom knows a lot about these things, but I still liked her.
Thing is, I can’t be too mad at him, because of how bad all that is and sometimes I get angry too, like that time I was telling Em about when the boy stole a piece of candy from me and wouldn’t give it back. I hit him -hard- down .. there. I got my candy back, but I still feel a little bad because of how much I hurt him.
So I can see Rhett hurting someone because he was hurt, you know? If she’d cheated and made it so that keeping her would disgrace the house and because she did the hug with someone else. I think maybe I can almost see it. Almost. I don’t envy him having gotten in trouble and having to stay in the keep. I remember how mom looked when Cass got in trouble and Elune please don’t ever let me see that with me. It was so scary.
