Some days I wake up and can't believe that I'm on Sel'Ani.
I can't believe that I'm here and that I've fallen in love with the man from my dreams. I can't believe that I said yes to marrying him and becoming the High Queen of the Aunare. I want to stay in bed with him all day where we're safe from everything else that's happening, but saying yes and being in love with Lorne didn't make all our problems disappear.
The Aunare don't understand what SpaceTech is capable of.
They don't understand what happened on Earth thirteen years ago. They don't understand who I am and why anyone—especially their High King—thinks I should rule.
When they question what happened, what I lived through, all the horrors of Liberation Week—I want to scream at them until they realize how blind and ignorant they've been, but I can't. I can't let my anger and frustration take over. They don't understand what happened, and I need to find a way to make them understand.
The war with SpaceTech isn't coming. It's already here. And we are losing.
I might not be the High Queen they wanted, but if we want to win this war with SpaceTech, I'm the one they need.
