Hey everyone! Sorry for the long wait for many of you, but thanks so much for the reviews and follows! I know I've been essentially dead these past few months, but I've been rereading these all-nighter stories (and you won't believe how many obvious flaws I found in them) so I am actually in the process of revising and completely re-editing all my stories. (True Courage included, of course.) So you might find that there are a few changes here, but they will be important to the story later on, so it might be helpful to reread :) I know this is rather an interruption as you are still all reading the story, so I promise not to do this again until I'm completely finished writing! :D Again, thanks so much for all the support, and I hope you enjoy this revised version of the story!

This long author's note LOL ^^

Making the decision was the easy part; it hadn't taken her too much effort. It was carrying it out, however, that would prove extremely difficult. Not to mention the stakes at hand. However, given the circumstances, that was exactly what Annette Darcy had to do.

It was dangerous - indeed, she would not expect anything less than imprisonment for life if she was caught. She might well be accused of being a spy.

But not if she proved herself first. And that was what she fully intended to do. With flying colors, if possible.

It was an unfair society she lived in, but she was going to make the best of it.

Pocketing the small folded sheaf of parchment in her coat, she set out.

Please leave a review! I'd really appreciate the feedback! :D
