“Roosha, I once asked you how you became a night sender.”
“You did,” he affirmed, afraid of where Rose was heading.
“You never told me.”
Roosha hesitated. “It’s not something I thought you’d want to know.”
“If I didn’t want to know, I wouldn’t have asked.” Her reply was more indignant than she intended.
Roosha sighed. “Rose, sometimes we think we want to know the answers to certain questions, but we don’t realize that knowing them may do us more harm than good.”
Rose grimaced. She was reminded of her mother’s withholding information from her under the premise that it was for her own good. She folded her arms across her chest.
“Isn’t it up to me to decide what information I want to know?”
“Yes, of course,” Roosha affirmed softly. “But once you know it, you cannot unknow it. You may lose the calm sea of bliss that ignorance has had you sailing on and be thrust into rough waters you weren’t prepared to navigate.”
“If I cannot manage rough seas, then perhaps I am not worthy of the journey.”
Roosha’s eyes bore into hers. He admired her resolve and her determination to experience far more of life than her limited court world offered. But her confidence did not alleviate his fear that if she knew the truth, she would rebuke him for his dark past.
“You don’t have to prove anything, Rose.”
“And neither do you.” She looked at him sternly. “Nor do you need to hide anything.”
