At least I found out what happened to me.  Apparently, I'm not
pregnant.  The Serpent's bite, apparently, increased the potential of my
shapeshifting abilities.  She also gave me the potential to draw
Logrus-based Trump.  I'm not sure what the difference is, beyond where the
power comes from.  I'll have to ask Melanie.  Of course, I think I'll wait
until she comes to term, I don't think that I want to bring myself under
her direct attention while she's annoyed with having the Serpent's child. 
I wonder why she and Kaedric do not abort the fetuses?  It would only seem
logical.  I just reread the last two sentences.  I have come a long way
from Ixaxis.  Is it a good thing or a bad thing?  I have lost the
innocence and morality of youth.  And won the favor of a woman beyond
compare.  I have three sons who will one day be better than I at guarding
Amber, or Chaos, whichever they choose.  I think I have paid an easy price
for a wonderful prize.  Of course, Gareth, Isaac, and Sky are on the other
side of the universe, and we have no way of contacting each other, so all
is not well with my heart.  I want my family together again.  I pray that
they are safe.  I pray that the other side is working on the Pattern
fluctuations, as well.  I could barely traverse Shadow the other day.  Of
course, I suppose being bitten on the shoulder by a deity does that to a
person.  The wounds seem to be healing now, I shall at least be able to
move quickly, if need be.  Kaedric seems to want me to be Alora's
bodyguard, for now.  I can't say that I blame him.  After all, I barely
know the Courts, let alone be able to aid her in any decisions that he
needs her to do in the next three days.  I only hope I still have the
alertness necessary to guard a person.  Wickling is out there, and they
may have already begun their move for the throne.  They will not get the
throne so easily, this time, not if I can help it.  I must go and attend
the King, he's ready to give orders.
