What if instead of taking Atton on a vacation, Carth, Kreia, Pip & Bailey had had a conversation with Alexandra about what she was doing to Atton?
A What If is a single chapter “story” that looks at what if a different path had been taken at a critical point in the story. One that would have drastic effects on the story. I will do at least one per generation. They will be released after both heir and “spouse” have died.
What If #1
What if Sinbad had not chosen to run and instead permanently distance himself from the family?

Sinbad visited Mira’s grave in the backyard daily. He couldn’t believe he got to live longer than Mira. Mira had been a good person in life. Sinbad had done horrible things in his past. Yet fate ended Mira’s life first. It wasn’t right.
He had still been in the process of coming to terms with the fact that his youngest child might very well be dead when Mira passed away. It had been a hard blow to Sinbad’s psyche. If he was honest with himself, he was depressed.
He had snapped at Revan’s right hand man Zachariah before hanging up on him after he had called the afternoon after Mira died wanting to discuss plans.
