There they are. How strange to see them again after all that has passed. Thank you for finding so many... I thought mayhap that there would be one missing. Matigniant has it, I believe, and so this rosary binds us together.
Was he an unbeliever? His faith was not the conflagration that other men set to the house of their heart, yet...I do not know, and never shall.
I sought to mislay all memory of him, but he was my great friend as well as my betrothed. A lady of Ishgard does not deny a friend, even if the ways of the world would have us deny our own fathers and husbands. And so I shall never forget Matigniant.
