Chapter 11: Whom We Trust
“Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.” Solon
Growing up, it has always been difficult from me to trust people. I have been hurt many times by people I thought I could trust. Yet I believe that there are more good people than bad out there. When I wrote this chapter I did not know whom to trust. I had been hurt by someone whom I trusted and cared for. I was confused and thoughts that I was the only person who felt the sting of a love lost. But the one thing I discovered was I have cultivated a wonderful circle of friends and family. They supported me in my time of despair and they rallied around me to quench the embers of doubt I was feeling from my break up.
This chapter is the result of cultivating friendships and surrounding myself with people whom I trust and in return trust me. Familiar habits, routes and relationships with people became the foundation for me to rebuild my trust in people and my life.
In this chapter the Captain embarks on his plans to free Pilsdreana from a tyrant. His training over and new friendships built, he looks to familiar surroundings to help in the next task that awaits him. There are some small tests of loyalty. Whom does he stand loyal with? Does he trust the Baroness and the Royal Guards or his own people? Does he sacrifice his people’s interest, for the chance to rekindle the spark with and old love? Or does he stay true to himself.
I hope you enjoy the latest chapter of The Captain and The Baroness: Whom We Trust.
