The grains of salt slid through my fingers as I sprinkled them into the stew. It
was a simple thing, really—seasoning the vegetable soup—but after twenty
years of captivity, I tried to savor every simple pleasure life had to offer.
Sometimes the customers said I savored salt too much, but I ignored them.
That was an easy thing to do, considering there were no chains on my wrists
I’d escaped a few months earlier with the other two women I had been
trapped with. We’d parted ways shortly after, each of us with our own goals.
Diora and Akari had been looking for freedom and revenge, so they headed
out to kill the kings they were magically connected to. I’d told them I was
doing the same, but it was a lie.
I didn’t give a flaming leaf about revenge.
All I wanted was peace.
I’d lived far too long with far too much pain, and now, I wanted comfort.
Comfort… and joy.
So I’d started working at an inn near where my friends and I had escaped to,
spreading that happiness in the form of well-salted vegetable stews and pies.
The time since had been blissful, and the only regret I had was that I’d let my
friends believe I intended to kill the king whose magic was keeping me alive.
He was a violent bastard, who had reportedly destroyed a vast number of
homes and lives.
But his magic had saved my life on so many occasions that I couldn’t hate
him. Even if I could, what was the point? We were never going to meet.
So, I made my soup, and ignored the many glares I received from the
customers who were sensitive enough to magic’s feel to realize that I
possessed the same intense dark power that the evil king did.
They could hate me if they wanted; I was just there to make soup.
Soup, and pies.
If that was all that filled the rest of my years, I would be content.
Though honestly, I didn’t think I would have that many years left. I was an
elemental fae who had never visited the lands of my people, which meant I’d
never had my own magic running through my veins. And for someone like
me, that was a death sentence.
I’d grown weaker in the recent years, but more particularly since I had
escaped the prison. I could feel the land of my ancestors calling to me.
But I’d already asked around, and there were no ships going to the elemental
lands anymore. The kings had been addled long before I was stolen away
from my home, so the lands were off-limits for most fae.
