Talia, p. 84

He was in the market and we spoke again.  Of dreams… of destiny… I told him of the throne, and what awaited me.  He said he wanted me to meet someone, to meet a king.  Did he not understand?  I know what waits for me down that path.  If I have any control of my destiny, I will not walk that… I would rather join the long dark than become one of those… but that is not my choice either.  I am tied to another.  I could no more hurt her heart with such action than I could take a sword to her flesh.  It is best I avoid him now.  The others were right.  That path holds only sorrow.
