Valislava Stonesown was a no-one.
She cultivated that existence with extreme persistence, staying to the shadows, keeping her head down, never stepping out of line. Those who tried to grow close to her, she politely pushed away.
Except...she wasn't able to push away "him."
The one man who knew what magic she possessed, and wasn't afraid of it.
She was her father's daughter, a Soul-Setter, able to place the dying embers of a living soul in a stone and preserve its power and its essence for an eternity if she so desired.
But her kind had taken vibrant souls prisoner as well. And it is only a small leap to make from Soul-Setter to Soul-Eater...and the war her people have been at for too long is about to stop caring for morality and request she loose her power on the world.
“No.” Her fingers pressed against his lips, stilled his words. “I should have said yes the first time you asked me to marry you. But I was ashamed of myself and the magic I carried. It was never about you, Taly. I think I have always loved you, as a friend when I was a child, as so much more now...”
She let the words hang unsaid in the air between them.
