Continuing the series of glimpses into life in Eldarion's classroom when he is a very little boy.

The Governess Strikes Back!

“Good morning Eldarion,” the governess said, “we will start today with another letter of the alphabet. Today’s letter is ‘U’.”

Eldarion carefully wrote in his book ‘UuUuUu…’

“U is for uniform, like the citadel guards wear; or for unicorn – you have seen one in our story book.”

“But… but… why isn’t U for you? I don’t mean for ‘Firiel’, but for ‘you not me’. Or why not for yew – the tree? There are some beautiful yew trees in the gardens of the Houses of Healing – look – just down below.”

“Because,” said Firiel with a distinct sense of triumph, “that’s ‘Y’!”
