I resent the implication I’m lazy and moan a lot. Mother should have been upfront about what she is and what that makes me. Having time to get used to the idea would have been enormously helpful. And I have had my life turned upside down and shaken up. Mother would’ve known I needed time to adjust. She should’ve anticipated my reaction. I do use magic as I see fit uncomplainingly now but it is to help and protect Eddie and I mainly.
Do you plan to tell your child, Edward, about the magical world? Have you found out what his skills are yet?
At some stage I will tell Eddie all I found out. He won’t find out the way I did. But I am going to put this off until he’s been in school for a couple of years. He should have every opportunity to do well with and without magic. I know Eddie can obliterate daisies just by pointing his finger at them. He has not produced much magic and since the daisy episode none at all. That kind of incident is a bit hard to explain away at playgroup. Eddie will be encouraged to use his magic wisely once he’s old enough to stand he must be really, really careful with it.
You said you liked flying but is there any other magic you like?
The ability to vanish is lovely. When life gets a bit much to literally vanish into thin air for a brief period of respite is really refreshing. After all who can bother me while in an “invisible” state? Certainly not Paul or any other human. Mother made it clear when training me a magical being has to be looking for someone in an invisible state to be able to spot them, assuming there are no protection spells on. I always wear loads of those. It is so nice knowing when I want to make sure I’m not disturbed by anything or anyone that I can do so. The Queen informed me that lots of magical beings take “mini breaks” this way.
How do you keep your magical urges suppressed? Don’t deny you have them. Every magical being does. Anyway the Queen has informed the Kingdom via my broadcasting company you are often seen struggling to control magic. She does not understand why you bother.
Your broadcasting company, Roherum? I understood FNN is run by a Board of Directors and you are only one of them. You turn a lovely shade of red, did you realise? No? I admit I can feel magic fighting to get out of me sometimes and I resist it by reminding myself I am human, it is safer for me and my loved ones to not make it clear I am anything else and by believing I’ll endanger myself by making my magic obvious, it makes it easier to resist showing them! I don’t fancy dying before my time! As for your last comment, trust me, Roherum, there is a lot your Queen doesn’t understand and that includes decent standards of behaviour. Don’t look like that. She kidnapped me and my child, remember. I’m not forgetting that in a hurry!
