663

Angelique is a woman of great power.  She has intelligence, beauty, wit, insight, and the favor of a thousand lost gods.  With this bounty, her capacity to do good is mightier than other I’ve known.  Tonight, she was to use those powers to save Mrs. Clark.  In exchange, I would have remained here, in her service.  She has chosen to uphold none of her agreement.  Did she do this to torture me as fully as possible, so that I would watch her die while hoping for salvation?  Is Angelique that cruel?

Perhaps because I have had such a reversal of spirit, I assume that all will follow suit.  My anger is volcanic, and it is eclipsed only by my sadness.  I mourn the loss of Victoria.  But moreover, I mourn the loss of all that Angelique could be.
