"A letter scented with herbs, written in Shani's sprawling erratic hand."
I spoke with Dandelion and learned your whereabouts from him. I thought it a good idea to send him to you, as it will keep him out of earshot of the local gossips. I also wanted him to deliver this letter and maybe take care of you a bit. I am really concerned about you and think someone should be by your side... Dandelion was always a loyal friend.
Before you read on, sit down, for something terrible has happened. Alvin has disappeared. I am convinced his magical talents are responsible. He may be near a river or lake, since when he lived with me he used to sneak out to the Dike. Please find him, wherever he is! I know you have grown to like the boy as much as I have. In truth, the three of us are almost a family and I know that when things settle down, you too will come to terms with... your feelings. You would make a fine father for Alvin. Have I mentioned that I worry about you? It's because I you love, and I believe you me just as much and that all will end happily. There, I've said it, though I didn't want to get sentimental — I know you don't like that. What else can I write? Come home as soon as you can, my boys.

Dearest Geralt !
You managed to escape in time and you should not return to the city for a while. Yet I hope we will not remain apart for long...
Our problems, however, do not end there. Alvin used magic to disappear, but I was able to locate him and sent you there. Take care of him, please. I know you don't need convincing — you've come to like him as much as I have. The boy has been through a log and his wild magical talents have awakened. When he was with me, he did not have patience enough to undergo basic magical training, claiming he would rather be an explorer of lost ruins, a discoverer of magical artifacts. I have enclosed a dimeritium amulet that blocks magic. I hope Dandelion hasn't lost it. Please convince Alvin to wear the pendant it [sic] at all times. Take care of him and think of me sometimes. I deeply hope all will be well with us — our little affair can't possibly be more difficult than your mission, can it? Be careful and know that I await your return.
