After speaking with Sallie, Charles goes to find a more secluded spot and ends up finding a rock on the lake edge.

Then he closes his eyes to shut out the world and reaches out with his mind towards Iris, imagining her certainty in herself, the colors of her and her love and acceptance.

Iris, lady of the rainbows and my heart. I miss you and have been remiss in calling out to you. I didn't wish to disturb you, but you're always near to my thoughts. I worry that you are safe in the midst of the war you're a part of and that your lady understands all that you do.

The lady Athena taught the Trojans well, but the Acheans are winning.

Blood ran in torrents, drenched was all the earth,
As Trojans and their alien helpers died.
Here were men lying quelled by bitter death
All up and down the city in their blood.


Iris, for her part, has been running messages back and forth from the lady Athena to her priests within the city walls -- but even she was unprepared for the sacrilege of Ajax upon Cassandra.




It has been the longest of days.

Charles? Oh dear heart.

That does not make sense.

How have you even remembered me? It has been near a decade.

There is not...how is that a response?

Oh.

He cannot hear.

Iris' shoulders slump, but she is still listening. Always.

He remembers her. Remembers a lot of her.

What faith.

For better or for much, much worse, the war of Troy is soon ending. Perhaps...

I hope to see you sooon, kyrios.
