#27 What have you most regretted losing?
A Wytch’s life, or even the life of any woman – or even a man, is filled with regrets. To be completely truthful, there is not much in this world that I regret losing. If I had to choose any one thing, it would have to be having lost my way back to the Fortunate Isle. That in no way means that I regret the reason that I broke my the vows that saw me cast out of that place where I regned as one of its Priestesses. What I did that night I did for many reasons. If I were to choose a more noble reason for doing what I did, I would claim that it was to save the life of one who would have been a sacrifice in the yearly rites. There are times when I look at the man even now, in spite of what he has become, when I can even make myself believe that was the main reason. But then reality comes over me again and I can say that perhaps closer to the Truth, it was simply because I saw a way to gain an incredible amount of Power.
But to gain Power, one must lose a little of it, and maybe e’en a little of oneself. I may not be able to find my way back to the Fortunate Isle, no matter how many times I cut a doorway to it, but it does not stop me from trying. And I do know that there is a way.
I have but yet to find it.
