Subject: [AM] Leaving
Karina thought again about what she was about to do, but knew she had 
made the right decision. She sat down to write the note.
Dear Zachary, Laura, Julianna and all,
I am sorry to be leaving you like this but I don't feel like I fit in. 
All of you are so competant and all I seem to be is lost and scared. I 
need to do something for me. I am going to try to get to know the rest 
of my family and also try to find my father. So, after I write this 
note, I am going to contact my brother in the courts. Maybe with his 
help, I can find my father.
I was afraid you would try to talk me out of it so thats why I am 
leaving like this. I am sorry, but this is what I need to do.
Karina lay down the pen and turned to pick up her small sachel of stuff. 
Her flute was still tucked in her belt, and it was the only musical 
instrument she had saved in the unicorn disaster. She lay the note on 
the bed and then picked up her trumps.
She shifted out the card that was her brother's and concentrated on it.
"Yes?" she heard
"Merlin, you may not believe me, but I am your half sister, Karina. 
Corwin is my father, too." Karina started.
"You look like him, and that is highly unusual" Merlin said "Usually, us 
Amberites look like our Shadow parent." He then looked closer "The 
silver rose.....where did you get it?"
"It was left for me in the package I just recently opened. It and the 
set of trumps I have were left for me by our father with a note so that 
I could find my heritage in Amber" Karina said "So I came to Amber. But 
I don't feel like I fit in and I want to meet you and possible find our 
father. I thought you might be able to help."
"I don't know where he is, but you are welcome to come to the Courts so 
that we may get to know each other better" Merlin said "Come, little 
sister, I will try to help you." He reached out his hand for her and 
Karina took it. "Welcome to the Courts"
NRPG: well, this is it all.......goodbye. I never really got into my 
character and I am getting too busy with my other characters that I do 
enjoy. Please take me off your mailing lists, although I will probably 
try to follow Amber in the newsgroup still.
Have fun!
