Fausta and Aulus had another son who they named Tenney

His grandmother barely got to see him. Soon after he was born she had a premonition of her own death

She had felt her time coming and had tried to make the most of her last days, passing on wisdom to Royce

And laughing and reminiscing with her twin, doing things they hadn’t done since they were both children

With her last breath she begged her husband and eldest don to hide her deth from Kata

Some time after this Old Aulus had a visitor. It was Eisu.A free man, if still a serf, Eisu had come seeking out the only man he had ever really loved

They talked and talked for hours and seemed to come to an understanding. When Eisu made himself leave both felt as though something had been righted

Aulus died with a smile on his face
