There are few things I have done in my life that I truly regret. What I did to you, the way I broke your trust and hurt you, is my greatest shame. I knew what I was doing was wrong, but I could not make myself stop no matter how hard I tried. I could not explain it or understand it in that moment. I do not tell you this as an excuse. There is no excuse I could give that would make my actions right.
I knew later, after we left you and the girls trapped in the house, that my actions cost me the relationship we have built. My heart, a part of me that I always guarded so well, breaks because I have not just lost your love, but you were stolen from me...from us, by Mordrid.
This is just another way I have failed you.
I swore I would never let Mordrid or Morgana hurt you, and yet I failed to stop that demented Wizard. If it weren’t for the fact that I can still feel the silver bond between us, I would fear you dead. But I cannot let myself think such a horrible thing. Telling myself, no knowing, you are still alive is the only thing holding me together.
I never told you much about my family, only that my parents died. I never told you about my little sister or how she died. I wish you could have met her, my beautiful Sophvira. As I have heard you girls saying, you two would have gotten along like a house on fire. I have no doubt she would have loved you. You two share the same strong, loving and loyal spirit. I failed her too.
I have to be better, more in control of my actions and myself. I know I have hurt you and that I may no longer be deserving of your love. If I were a stronger man, I would step aside and let you and Arthur, my king, be together. I know he would make you happy, love you, but I am not that strong of a man. The thought of losing you, even to my brother, my king, I cannot bear it.
I have much to atone for. I may have no chance or right, but I will not give up on winning you back. I will become a better man, prove that you can trust me once again. I will become the man you deserve to have love and cherish you for the rest of your life and even beyond.
We are trying to find a way to locate you, to save you and bring you home to us, to me. I hope that when that happens—and it will happen; I will find a way to you—I can give you this letter, and maybe you can find a way to look past my actions and give me another chance. You own all of me; you have since that first moment when you freed me from the Sidhe. I am not going to give up on us, or on being the kind of man you need and deserve to have by your side.
I love you,
