Chapter VI: Pest Control (Part 2)


(To help decipher)


Cheric told me that she did not have time to respond to your letter so I’m writing in her stead. I hope you’re doing well. I’m also sorry about the exploding paper. Had I known I would have written on my own parchment. I was wondering why she was particular about the paper we used.

I’m doing alright, thank you for asking. I am in the sixth month of rehabilitation for my leg. When the ship capsized in the squall I had torn my quadricep in my right leg. It was a miracle I was walking on that beach. It’s been two months since they have taken my knee brace off. They expect me to be walking fluidly by my seventh or eighth month of rehab.

You have Mr. Andrew Nielson as your instructor? That’s surprising; I’ve had him as an instructor three to four years ago. Weird. I’m glad to hear that your studies are going well. Try looking into Arthur Rimbaud. His poem Asleep in The Valley may peak your interest.

For your knowledge, this paper will not explode. I used my own parchment this time.  The Division’s crew and I are looking for your favorable response.

Damien Drummond

P.S. From Aden past this point: “You’re a naïve, damsel in distress who hasn’t experienced the likes of a real man”.

Um, I don’t think he necessarily means to be… stupid as you’ve put it, but perhaps you should avoid calling him names? Maybe you guys should have a heart to heart when you two meet because I think you guys just rubbed each other the wrong way. Aden isn’t as cruel as you’re making him out to be. Hope you’ll reconsider.
