Memory Keeper

I stumbled when we reappeared inside the cave, falling against the crumbling wall. My stomach lurched and I leaned forward, feeling like I was going to throw up.

“What the hell just happened?” Ourelia asked.

Andros and Lea took a moment to catch their breath and regain their footing before either of them answered her.

“Lea’s a memory keeper,” he said.

Ourelia’s eyes grew wide and her mouth fell open in awe.

“I never knew I could do that,” Lea said. “That was insane.”

She laughed, but then almost collapsed. I stepped forward and caught her before she hit the ground.

“Are you okay?” I asked.

Her eyes fluttered open and she gave me a weak smile. “I think so,” she said. “I think I just need a few minutes to recover. That was amazing.”

“It’s more than amazing,” Andros said. “It’s a rare and very important gift. I have heard rumors that your father, the king, also possesses this gift, but I never believed it was true until this moment.”

Lea looked up at him with questions in her eyes. “My father has this memory gift? I’ve never heard anyone speak of it my entire life,” she said.

“I honestly thought it was just a rumor, but now that I’ve seen you with the same gift, I feel certain your father must also posses this same power.”

“Why would he keep it hidden?” she asked. She tried to stand, but was still too weak. I let her lean against me.

“I am not sure,” he said. “Either he has a good reason to believe the rest of the kingdom does not need to know about this power or…”

His voice trailed off and he turned away.

“Or what?” I asked.

He rubbed his hand across his cheek, thinking. “Rare abilities like this are often passed down to the next generation,” he said. “Maybe your father never told you about this because he was afraid you might also have the same ability.”

Lea shook her head. “Why would he be afraid of that? Why wouldn’t he want to help me discover all of my abilities so that I could be the strongest leader I could be someday?”

Andros paced in front of us. “A memory keeper can be very dangerous to someone who is trying to keep secrets,” he said. “Like I told you before, everything has memory. Even places. If you had stumbled upon this ability in the middle of the throne room, for example, just think of what you might have been able to learn. You could have used your ability to uncover all of his secrets.”

Lea fell back against my chest.

What Andros was saying made perfect sense. If a young Lazalea had been encouraged to develop this power, she might have wanted to practice throughout the castle. She might have discovered some secret conversations or touched an item that held an important memory he didn’t want her to know about.

Considering how far he’d gone to keep the Order of Shadows a secret, I didn’t doubt that he’d kept this power from Lea on purpose.
