There is not a lot to say except that Eileen was wrong! Duty should be everything for such a high powered fairy godmother. To leave it all for a mere human male still beggars believe and, worse, would have given our rival, the Chief Witch, the biggest laugh of her miserable life. Eileen should have known better than to give her that opportunity. Also it would have helped a lot had Eileen not bottled things up. Until almost the last minute, I had no idea she was so fed up. She did not give us a chance to solve her problems. As ever she assumed she knew best.
Ma’am, you and your family have striven for centuries to eradicate the practice of older fairies stealing Earth children. So with that in mind, do you regret abducting Jennifer and her small child? Wasn’t that action a kind of regression?
No. I knew getting Jennifer and Edward into our realm would being Eileen back and I am more than happy to tolerate them as long as they learn to fit in. Jennifer has to balance two types of blood in her so she will have more difficulty in balancing her skills than a full blood would. I see this as additional reason to be in the Kingdom as magical oddities are considered normal here. Jennifer would not be made to feel odd. I don’t believe I regressed. Ironically I was trying to help Jennifer not that she will ever admit to that.
You were reluctantly against the fairy squad led by Hanastrew but have now been seen and heard praising them. What were your “anti reasons”?
You know the Kingdom periodically has rebellions so do we want to equip people with the training and methods available in the usual manner. We think not! That was our original thinking and it is not unreasonable in itself. Having said that with the Witch increasing her awful attacks made us recognize the need for a fighting unit to be able to respond nigh on immediately. We will continue to set seasons, times and develop spells we can share with the squad to help them in their valiant battles.
Eileen, of course, was for the fairy squad from beginning, so proving she isn’t wrong on every matter. Are there other issues where you feel Eileen isn’t wrong?
Eileen had selfish motives to back the squad, remember. Had the squad been proven to be useless, they wouldn’t have stayed “open for business”. In general terms Eileen is right to warn about menaces within the Kingdom as well as those exterior to it. Sadly she seems besotted with humanity and life on Earth do I doubt if we’ll get anything sensible out of he there! She works and studies hard, which is great. She’s not afraid to criticise those in power. We are all in favour of her doing that to the Council but it is a lot less pleasant when she takes it into her head to do this to me!
