May 1: it don't go nowhere but damnation
Ozorne comes to view Kalasin as a sort of compensation, after a while. Maybe if he is kind enough to her, if he takes care of her and makes her happy, it would content the gods, just a little bit.
As he figures out later, there is kindness, and there is kindness, and maybe he shouldn't have exposed her to the latter.
The Emperor Mage strokes her hair back and pulls the covers up to her shoulders, noting the light shiver that passes through her sleeping body as his cool fingers touch her.
Maybe he was just headed for damnation, however hard he tried to prevent it.
