Disclaimer: I don't own Narnia or any characters you may recognize from the books or the movies, I wish I did but I don't... I also don't own the Narnian Calendar. It belongs to Elecktrum who was kind enough to let me borrow it for my story. Her own stories are awesome and you should go read them too.

Summary: Letters can reveal much about people and how they change over time...

A/N: Fun little project covering letters swapped between Oreius and Katerina Alambiel over the years... This is part of my A Light in the Darkness universe, but it can be read as a standalone although the occasional letter references events in the main stories.

Spoiler Alert: This chapter refers to events in Unorthodox Measures.

Of Rogues

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

You know I was almost convinced that you could never get into more trouble than I did with the whole angering the weavers thing with the Ogres. (That still wasn't my fault, by the way.) But you have completely sunk that theory, my dearest rogue.

Out of curiosity, are you going to give an encore performance? Break into the Tisroc's personal chocolate treasury? Oh, or maybe steal all the sheets from Anvard?

Alambiel

P.S. Should I prepare a bailout fund for you? Or maybe just keep a handy plan for breaking you out of prison?

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Alambiel

I have only been gone three days. I am surprised you did not write sooner. Are your wrists paining you?

And do you honestly believe that causing the Ogres to ruin through the weavers' guild has been your worst infraction over the years? (You were certainly a contributing factor.) I am not a rogue.

Absolutely not. Why would I do that? I do not believe the Tisroc has a personal chocolate treasury. I am reasonably certain that pest of a colt has accomplished such a trick already and I have no reason to follow in his hoofprints.

Oreius

P.S. No. I was under the impression you already had prison escape plans in place. It is the one area you may actually be considered prepared ahead of time in regards to military matters.

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Oreius

They itch. Tuulea fusses because I keep fiddling with the bandages.

The other 'infractions' can't be proven, ha! I like rogues.

For the thrill, a chara. I was joking. Although, you should make the effort to bring chocolate with you when you come visit me. After you finish being punished. Following in Corin's hoofprints would be difficult for you, wouldn't it? Size difference, you know.

Alambiel

P.S. Oh, Kentauri, I don't make escape plans to be prepared. I do it for entertainment.

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Alambiel

You should not fiddle with the bandages.

That is debatable. I am a rogue. Within reason.

As was I. You are not as amusing as you believe yourself to be.

Oreius

P.S. I suppose that should no longer surprise me. Tell me something, do you do anything that is not for your own entertainment?

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Oreius

I just received that lecture from Tuulea. Thank you for keeping yours so brief.

So you are my rogue within reason. Bit of a mouthful. I'll just call you my rogue or my hero when I feel extremely sentimental.

Bring me chocolate. And yes, I am. I'm definitely funnier than you because I have the better sense of humor.

Alambiel

P.S. Hmmm, no, I don't think so.

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Alambiel

You are welcome. Listen to the healers and they will leave you alone.

Am I?

You are aware that this patrol will last for five more weeks, are you not?

Oreius

P.S. I am not surprised.

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Oreius

Short lecture, Kentauri, short.

Of course.

I am sadly aware of it. It means I must pester other people since you are gone.

Alambiel

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Alambiel

Some would say that these letters are your continued pestering.

Oreius

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Oreius

Do you think they are?

Alambiel

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Alambiel

I think you write more when I am most often on your mind.

Oreius

ӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁӁ

Oreius

I miss you too.

Alambiel
