The Wraith
Part 2

I was living the life of a titled lady
Comfortable in my country estate
Seeing to the needs of the people on my lands
With my parents dead, and my brother away at war
Their well being was my responsibility
And one I took quite seriously
We were having a very prosperous year
And all were happy and content
When word happened to reach me of royal unrest
Of course, living so far from the city
And the excitement of a life at court
I was always eager for news of any kind
But I hardly saw how this bit could affect me
Or my people
Oh, how very wrong I turned out to be
