People have always drawn their own conclusions when it comes to me and Kima, but I don't even really understand why it's a question. We share a home. We spend all our time together, when possible. We are open in our affections. I am not sure how we could make our love for one another more obvious. I never thought it was something that needed to be declared, but so many people assume it is just friendship and it becomes irritating to correct them.
Kima is my partner in all things and I love her dearly.
I do feel terrible about Tiberius. I knew he cared for me. And I did care for him, as a friend. I wanted to let him down gently. And I hate that we parted on such poor terms. I was so harsh with him. I had my reasons, but it hurts to know that the last words I said to him were unkind. Knowing that he died thinking he had lost my friendship is something that fills me with regret.
I worry that, with the dragons being as they are, there will only be more regrets to come. I was the one who imprisioned Thordak. Perhaps if I had done better, none of this pain would have happened.
