A/N: This is just a prelude, a teaser, if you will. *evil grin*
R&R&R, please? *puppy dog eyes*
Politics, be it fairy or human, is corrupt.
Bribery. Secrets. Treachery. Lies. Anything goes when power is at stake.
Even, to some extent, murder.
This may be shocking news to some. This may be a confirmation to others. But to a select few, this is a threat.
I was involved in this incident because a close friend of mine had requested it. Her mentor would have been wrongfully convicted on third degree murder and prosecuted accordingly. I have been asked to report this incident in as true a fashion as possible. I have more-or-less succeeded in doing so, but, I had to take some poetic license in telling this story, because I cannot possibly know what anyone else is thinking or feeling at any given moment.
I have recieved several death threats over this controversial report that I am delivering. I do not doubt that they will be carried out if it were possible. However, I do not think so, because all that are closest to me can either defend themselves or have someone capable of defending them close by at all times. I myself have a highly trusted bodyguard.
You, as the reader, are a different story. Why am I telling you this? I am writing the incident down because it is the truth, and some don’t want anyone to know it. Proceed, but be warned that reading my words may bring uninvited guests to your doorstep.
