"I doubt it will work, but I would like to. I doubt Aunt Lia is inclined to let us spend time together now after Yehudit ran off and went to sea for two weeks."

"Yehudit weren't 'urt, and yor millstone is big enough ter make up 'er own mind, right, even if she's a cripple. Yer need ter nick that crazy tart's nose and tell 'er ter leave yer alone if Yehudit wants ter be 'round yer so badly." Questa said.

"Aside from nicking her nose, I did tell her that it was Yehudit's choice. I mean, Yehudit is an adult now. Maybe she will back off now that I have decided I am done with adventuring. I can't just go off all scattered now that I have Oscar. And I want to go through these things to try to learn a way to defeat those mermen."

Sileas walked over to the table  in the center of the room, absently rubbing her stomach. "Would you believe that I am feeling sea sick aga...hello, what's this?" she said spying a small box on the table. "This...this has my name on it. It's not Xavier's writing either."

"Don't puke dahn 'ere. There ain't any windows, we'll never cop the bloody smell out." Questa could not read, much less determine whose handwriting it was.

Sileas opened the box and found a beautiful pendant along with a folded piece of parchment. A letter. To her! Perplexed and curious, she hooked a chair over with her foot and sat down. As she read, the color drained from her face and her jaw dropped. Then she looked up and stood. "Watch Oscar for me, please. I want to read this in private.

"I know, it's not that. I just...I need to just really read this without distractions. I'm only going in the bedroom. Which one did you want?" she asked.

"Then I'll take the one on the right." It was a slightly larger room, but Sileas would need the room for Oscar. She picked up the box and the package of Oscar's clothing and disappeared into the bedroom. After a while, the sounds of crying could be heard.

"Because according to this, Keegan Lowell was my father. He knew of me but she who gave birth to me wouldn't let him see me and then she left town with me. It must have been before I was in Portside, probably still a baby because I don't remember being elsewhere. When he had finally caught up to her, it was too late, she had sold me to Jeremy." Sileas shook. "My real father wanted me. And Mama would have been my Mama still if he'd found me."

She fingered the pendant. Sileas had removed it from the box. "He says this is a family heirloom and I should never remove it."

In reply to Questa Cort (msg # 18):

"She who gave birth to me was no mother. She didn't know the meaning of the word. I didn't have a mother until Mama and Papa adopted me." Sileas stiffened. "I wonder if Jeremy knew? What if that's why he killed Jeremy and Eden?"

"No, she's not," Sileas said. "I hope she doesn't upset Oscar." She unfastened the chain the pendant dangled from. She looked at Questa for a moment before putting the pendant on. A blinding light filled the room.

Questa shielded her eyes with her arm, but still she saw spots and her vision was darkened. "Wot the chuffin' hell were that?!"

"Why do you think I know? The letter just said to wear it and never take it off. It didn't say anything at all about a blinding light!" Sileas cried out. The light returned to the pendant and seemed to make Sileas glow from the inside. "What the..."

Sileas reached behind her neck. "The clasp! It's gone!"  As she spoke, the light went away. Sileas let out a breath.
