The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

"Fine," Lucille pouted. "I guess silly little Luci would never have been any help anyways." She inwardly kicked herself as soon as she said that; it probably would just make Mia more upset. Then again, Lucille had never had much in the way of talent when it came to mincing her words.

"I'll see you at the Ball, Mia," she finished. "Don't worry. Everything will work out. Somehow."

Mia sighed, saying nothing. She knew Luci wouldn't really understand. She shouldn't have even bothered talking with her in the first place.

She nodded absently to Luci as she exited Keep Deveaux.

Mia didn't want to cry anymore, so she supposed Luci helped in that regard, but there was so much pressure, so much stress, and Mia now felt alienated from her own home. Camille Deveaux was not one to forgive so quickly, and Luci was oversimplifying things. When the time came, Camille wouldn't be introspective enough to realize this was merely... stress?

No, this was because Mia couldn't shut her stupid mouth. Nevan, Camille, Damien, Luci... all Mia did when she talked was aggravate people. She would just cause more pain.

She sighed. And she needed to run a Great House and put on a Ball to end all Balls? She thought she had a solid surprise for the nobility, but would that bring more pain to everyone still?

Probably. Camille would be even more annoyed, certainly.

Gah, Mia thought. What am I supposed to do? This incident with Cami made her realize the hole inside of her, and she filled that hole with a swirling storm of worry. Cami couldn't fill it anymore. Delzen, while amazing, couldn't fill it. No one could fill it.

Well. Julian could.

And that gave Mia an interesting idea. Stupid, but it would solve the problem.

She wouldn't need to write Julian a letter after all.
