I started of a poor widow with two sons. And no fotrune or land to show. I was still living on my parents land with my brothers and sisters, when the land that rightfully belonged to me was taken away. But I have made my name known, I have given my sons a knew heir, a new live. I myslef have come upon a new life. I now have lots of fortune and power, a new love of my life, and a life I can be proud of. I have set my family up for good fortune thanks to my newly high powers. And set up a life that cannot be taken, not without a fight.

Mother: And your bot Thomas will be old enough to leave home soon. He should live with his kinsmen; he should learn to be a gentleman.
Me: No
Mother: What's wrong?
Me: I will keep my sons with me. My boys are not to be taken from me.
Mother: They will need a proper education; they will need to serve in the household of a lord. Your father will find someone, their own godfather's might...
Me: No. No, Mother, no. I cannot consider it. They are not to leave home.
Mother: Child? It's not like you to take a sudden whim over nothing. And every mother in the world has to let her sons leave home and learn to be men.
Me: My boys are not to be taken from me. I am afraid...I am afraid for them. I fear...I fear for them. I don't even know what. But I cannot let my boys go amoung strangers.
Mother: Well, it is natural enough. You lost your husband; you are bound to want to keep your boys safe. But they will have to go someday, you know.
------------
Never again do I want to think about my boys leaving me, it is a horrible thought that has taken over my mind. No one shall take them.
