Probably not. It’s such a bizarre idea to get used to and nobody would expect their parent to come out with such a crazy tale. As far as I’m concerned, I am me. I have an odd ancestry and the less said about it the better.
You used some magic. Did you enjoy this? Will you continue to use magic?
I like flying. While it still feels strange having wings sprout out of my back when I touch behind my right knee, being in flight is wonderful and when I really need to relax I use an invisibility spell and take to the skies! It doesn’t fool the birds though. They get out of my way when I’m up there. I guess you can’t fool animal senses. I’ll continue to use what magic I find it best to use and primarily for my benefit. I’ll use magic defensively if I have to but I do expect Mother to do the bulk of this. It is her stock in trade after all. It isn’t mine.
Like Eileen, you tried to hide what you are from your husband but failed. Has Paul accepted what you are? How has it affected your marriage?
Paul blames Mother, rightly so. It was difficult for a while. He was livid I kept my magical blood hidden from him but can see now I was trying to shield him. Had the Queen not spoken out, there would have been no need for him to know and he accepts that. I’ve promised him I’ll never use magic in a way that will draw attention to it. As far as he and the world are concerned, we are an ordinary couple. Our marriage will be and is just fine. I hope I must never use magic defensively in front of Paul. I don’t know how that would effect him or me.
