After Aldin’s passionate plea for mercy over the fate of his brother Adam, Noor’s feelings were conflicted. She could find nothing redeeming in Adam any more. He was evil incarnate. To add to the injury, whenever she saw Adam, she saw the faces of Arn and Rostam in him. And whenever she looked at Aldin, she saw Adam. Those horrible feelings in her heart would not go away. And, she thought, they would not go away even after Adam’s burning on the stake.

Perhaps, after all, she could heed the words of Aldin. Adam is Aldin’s only full sibling, and as monozygotic twins (or quadruplets… were it not for the deaths of Arn and Rostam), they share a bond. To kill Adam would to go against Aldin, perhaps in ways that to him would be unforgiveable.

Noor walked around the Keep. It had taken some time to get used to the new dwellings. She did not particularly like it very much, though the bagh of Aurefiction always gave her peace as she strolled around it. She decided now that she would meet Liv, Adam’s wife, for the first time.

As things had turned out, Liv had not been on Noor’s mind. They, having been friends for decades, still had not talked since before the Oustfest Massacre. There were rumours that Liv hade been taken by Adam by force, but other rumours said that she willingly joined him, that she truly loved and worshipped him.

Liv was officially a guest in the Keep, but unofficially placed under house arrest.

As Noor entered Liv’s room, Liv stood up in respect, curtsied deeply, and remained silent. Noor was shocked to see Liv highly pregnant. There had been no reports of that. She decided not to speak of it immediately, but offered Liv some tea. The next half hour was simply small talk, of how Liv found the Keep, if she was comfortable and so on.

Finally, she asked Liv about the pregnancy. Liv told her that the child was Adam’s, and that the child was expected any time now. Adam had only taken Liv to his bed in the two weeks following the Oustfest Massacre, until he found other diversions, but had still ordered Liv to marry him. Liv had not understood why, but she assumed Adam had known about the pregnancy very early on. Noor then realised that Liv had not been a willing party to any sexual or marital relations with Adam – her fate was simply forced upon her.

As to Adam’s fate, Liv said that the matter would entirely be in the hands of Noor, as mother, queen and kaiseress. Whatever Noor would decide, Liv would, as a loyal subject, support with her heart and soul.

“I’ve decided to burn him on the stake,” Noor said.

Liv’s eyes started crying. Was it out of pain, or relief?

“But Aldin begs for his mercy…”

Liv’s crying went more, and she began shaking. A few moments later, Liv was in a full-blown panic attack, and medics were called in.

To make matters no easier, Liv’s water broke, and twelve hours later, at the clinic in Raynor’s Keep, Liv gave birth to Noor’s grandchild, a boy.

Kaiseress of Shireroth
