She remembered the pages she had ripped from the massive tome and pulled them out of her bodice, making herself comfortable on the bed. It was just what she needed, a calm distraction. She flattened out the creases, admiring the detail of the illuminated script and began to read the Lifprasira symbols running down the edge of the page. Her hands shook the more she read on, within minutes the papers floated to the floor, her hands remained open. "It can’t be true," she mumbled staring blankly into thin air. Tears welled in her eyes as the information swirled around in her mind. She stood up in a sudden panic, shaking, grabbing the bed post to steady herself. Tears now streamed down her cheeks knowing this would change everything and tear them all apart.
