As the Alisia plot is developing, I intend to leave it for a while to concentrate on the maps and Mi Kee I will give some more details of the future for Alisia.
Alisia actually tried to fool King Martan, thinking that if she became pregnant he would not marry Princess Roulani.
Martan did not want a child as it complicated things and he decided her escape would be her death-trap or at the very least a miscarriage.
He knew Sir Charles had troops in the forests to the west of Matira but it was too close to comfort for him to arrange her own death.
Instead the idea was move across country on a horse for some forty miles whilst word of her leaving was released to the remaining spies of Sir Charles to make her rush. The troops are as much a sacrifice as anyone, and Jinny has started to realise that.
In this she is aided by the tantrums of Alisia who deliberately slows them down and that is fairly obvious: eventually; something King Martan, who she trusts and thinks she can manipulate, had told her to slow everything down and make sure Sir Charles and his troops caught her and then she would be free to have the child!
I’ll attach sketched maps.
Taken out a lot of times on maps. I thought they might go as far as Dagril and Mi Kee; still working on ideas and ideas but above on the maps as I think and understand the world I created.
