Running Free

Running Free

Mother finally granted me freedom but she should have called it what it really is: exile. 

Without the choice to be with the person I love, it isn't freedom at all. Now that I know that Suren wants to be part of my life, too, I can't leave without her.

So we're going to run. I'm not sure where we're going. I know it won't be easy. We have a hard journey ahead of us, but I believe it will be worth it. We won't have to answer to Mother, to the Council, to anyone. We'll be able to make our own lives together, for the first time.

It's hard to say goodbye. Josh and Sally have meant so much to me. But as hard as it is, this way is better. I won't bring more danger into their lives. Without me, they'll be freer, too.

I don't know what's coming- I know Mother won't let us go easily- but I believe that risking her wrath will pay off, in the end. I have to.
