Chapter 39 EVANORA’S JOURNAL (II)
- However, a will containing a wisp of Henrietta Vane's consciousness ensured that she won the battle for the custody rights of her niece. It declared that in the event of her death or inability to provide appropriate care for any of her children (borrowing a leaf from her mother's predicament), her sister, Evanora Vane, was to be granted full custody.
- No one knows that Evanora is the reason the Vane family still exist today. Realizing that with her niece's nonchalant attitude, the realm of magic stood the risk of losing the Vane bloodline to posterity, she set out to find a suitable mate for the latter.
- For some reason, the Tree of Life did not give life to any of the bodies containing Arielle's seeds, so the best alternative was to mate with a mortal and hope that somehow, the child born from such union would inherit magic from her niece. There was a fat chance of that happening, but it was a better alternative, compared to the'biased' Tree of Life.
