This week, I was humiliated because I could not do any of the tasks that my clan assigned me. I now realize that a true ruler of kings needs so many skills in order to succeed, and a mere mercenary like me will not ever be able to reach those heights. I feel terrible to disappoint my mother so, but I think I can make a difference somewhere else. I will go enlist in the King's Guard and contribute to the well-being of the kingdom by protecting its ruler. Mother, I will try to honor your memory through my work, even though I know you would have wanted more for me.
