General Halcynos remained contemplatively silent after I asked him that question. He had been my father’s beta and had served the kingdom for close to eight hundred years, so I was confident he would have an answer for me.
He was there at our wedding. He saw how the marks were created. He was even one of the councils who received my temper when I sought an answer regarding this but since it was Sedsah, my father’s augur, who stepped in and somehow distracted me, I wasn’t able to delve deeper about this issue.
Serena sat beside me and waited for her father to speak too. I wrapped my arm around her waist and kept her close.
“You mentioned before you came here that you wanted to know more about the crescent moon marks, Your Majesty,” he started with his hands clasped on each other. “Since then, I tried my hardest to remember any memory that can help you, but unfortunately, I have none.”
My brows twitched at his words. Well, that didn’t make sense.
