“You are Rachel Alexandra Metaxas, daughter of Alexander Metaxas and Hadar Meier.”
I never thought a single sentence could alter my entire life, until Lady Narcissa uttered that one. She kept speaking after that justifying her behavior no doubt, but I didn’t hear any of it. My mind was reeling with the implication of her words. Before I never understood why Xaxier and Gabriel shunned titles that were rightfully theirs. It is easy to see only the good parts of being a noble when it’s not real, when you don’t actually have to make the sacrifices that come with title. This can only complicate my life and if this decision affected only me I would tell Narcissa to bury what evidence she has found and to keep my secret. But it does not only affect me. Being marked as low born meant that my opinions and expertise where given less weight, I was excluded from political meeting and votes, and more times than I can count noble refused to even grant an audience to one as lowly as me.
Once the announcement is made these barriers will be gone. I know there will still be those who scoff at my illegitimacy, but they will not be able to shut me out as they have in the past. I have left the arrangement to Lady Narcissa. Objectively I know I should hate her for the role she played, but I don’t. My past has made me who I am, the mage, the ambassador, the revolutionary, the Prodigy and perhaps soon the Archmagi. My reason for excelling at magic and politics were driven by a need to be beyond better than any lordling the noble could produce. Everything about me has been shaped by Narcissa decision to leave me at that orphanage. I don’t hate her, but I am not sure I forgive her either.
