Written in a ornate flowing script, this note is hand delivered by a small child, holding a bag of candy and a big smile.
The two children looked at their father as he told them of their creation."You were created out of love, the best parts of me." he told them, as they stared unbelievably at him.
The boy child looked angry, and turned away. The girl child nodded thoughtfully, her soul filled with the mystical part of her father, she found it easier to deal with than the physical part, which her brother portrayed.
"We are still your children though, and we still love you, our feelings have not changed" she said, looking at her father with a smile. The boy child turned, tears in his eyes as he nodded his agreement."But how much of our memories are real? which part is true?" he asked.
"My loves," the father said, "You are born my children, in all the ways that matter, you are the best of me, you are my soul, my light, my everything., you are very special for you have a great destiny to join all in peace and knowledge..all is true, your memories are real."
The children nodded and hugged their father, knowing in their hearts, they were not ordinary but were special, because they were made from the ultimate love a father can give. Things made sense and their paths were clear, they would follow their Lord Cylad the best way they could. Through their example others would follow, setting the scrolls and books in order, creating a library like no other, detailing everything they learnt. Music, art, the stars, battles, happiness, fear, magics... nothing was out of their reach. And they knew no good nor evil, they were the book keepers, all was learnt.
Now the children are growing, in mind, spirit and body, they soak up more life lessons and write them religiously into the Books of Lore, for the next generation of young scholars to read, learn from and continue with. They follow Lord Cylad unwaveringly in every way they can. Obeying his every whim, hoping for the day that they are deemed worthy enough to join him in the Construct of the River of Time, under his watchful gaze where they can live and learn forever, safe in his Sanctuary. The Librarians of His Eternity.
Anaia and Ivilis Valos, have carried on their fathers tradition, and indeed follow in his footsteps to become the best they can be, through unwavering loyalty, trust and love in the brethren they embrace.
