Dear Skyla Clarke, Sky Guardian of Tolla and Phoenix of Prayell.
I believe an apology is in order. I apologise for making you a temperamental and moody woman. As I wrote your story my own emotions at that time were mirrored in your character. Don't become angry please! I would rather not be on your bad side!
I hope you will forgive me for the pain I caused you so many times. You see, it caused drama and suspense. Basically, I refuse to present you as a perfect being. Sorry.
I apologise for giving you such a worry-wart for a boyfriend. Remember he is always thinking about you and try not get angry at him okay? You will need him so please don't strangle him in his sleep… Perhaps that won't be such an issue with his physique being a major distraction to you. Be thankful for that!
Sorry your past is so terrible. Was the future that I bestowed upon you an improvement? Probably not since you're now burdened with the fate of an entire country. I know you hate crowds and I presented you with the least favourable occupation in that sense. Sorry, but at least people accept you, right? (Well, at least some of them do).
Try to remember the cool powers I gave you. You possess some pretty awesome abilities; I wish I could manipulate fire! You have a terribly cute pet as well. Not to mention TWO horses and a wicked nickname (even though you hate it ). Now I'm starting to become jealous!
So, I'm sorry… Kind of. I love you. Please don't kill me!
Your loving and generous creator,
ps. I think I'll hide now as I write the next sector of your life in GUARDIAN CORE… You're really going to despise me…
