Rock and a hard place wait for me
Between the Devil and the deep blue sea
Everything I ever did right or wrong
Hid out of sight where I belong
Galain: both spirited, wild, restless souls, they made perfect friends. For
centuries, that was how it was, a friendship full of laughter and teasing
that covered a strong sexual attraction. They were both married to other
people, but their best intentions could not keep them apart, one evening
when the teasing went too far.
love, but unwilling to put his marriage at risk as cavalierly as she did her
own, Ghet broke off the relationship, and they submitted to a friendship
full of pain and longing.
Galain's wife was murdered, Ghet was there to hold him, unhesitating. She
bonded to him, and lost her own husband. They had a brief time together in
the midst of his father Gareth's bloody reign in Alcarinque until they were
both captured, and each believed they saw the other die. Ghet was given to
Galain's son Avathar to be raped and abused, and it was Y'Roden who rescued
her, brought her back from madness, and took care of her until she and
Galain found each other again.
found An'Thaya was alive, Ghet left him. Galain pursued her, and managed to
convince her to agree to be his second wife, something she agreed to only on
the condition that she would not give up Y'Roden.
arrangement could not endure. Ghet constantly felt second to An'Thaya, Ro to
Galain. But it was Thaya who left Galain first, causing Ghet and Galain to
deepen their bond and conceive a child, Aarien, whom they both adore. The
family settled in Alcarinque, helping to stabilise the kingdom, and finding
peace and security with each other, finally alone together.
people are not built for peace.
S'Hea became ill, so did Ghet. She near-killed herself bringing a
recently-divorced Y'Roden back from the dead, badly fracturing her own
marriage in the process, as she was forced to face the fact that she
and Ro still loved each other.
had to make the decision she'd hidden from for centuries. Ghet divorced
Galain, and married Y'Roden. She still loves Galain, and she always
will, though she carries a heavy burden of guilt for the pain she has put
him through. They maintain a civil relationship for the sake of their young
daughter, and Ghet will always worry about him and fear for the path his
future might hold.

Last to Know
Way down the track, made the wrong turn
Finished up where I started
You noticed a change come over me
Fell in love with my own reflection yeah
How does it feel beneath your own wheel
Feels like an accident waking up
Under a bus with my fingers crossed
Now is the time we could make it up
So you lost the fear it wasn't that bad
Left to your own devices yeah
Still a young girl eyes the clock
Tick like a motor running out
Magnets and words up on the fridge
Speak to the poet in all of us
I missed the page that you thought about
Drew in the frost on the windowpane
But who I wonder could fail to notice
The aching silence came down
I'm humble now
I hope you might come back
In your own time
Left to your own devices
And so, that's how it goes
Never the first
Always the last to know.
