Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:
“You don’t understand,” he said to the woman in front of him as he looked up into her face. “Yes, you are Captain Rebecca Rohit of the Obsidian Guard, but you are also Princess Rebecca, second in line to the throne of Saranan. When the Gates of Ahrun open you can’t be on the front line, regardless of how qualified you are because you are more than just a damned good soldier, you are also a symbol. Each man and woman in this arid, desolate land needs something, needs someone on whom they can focus their attention. You are that symbol. They do this for their kingdom and their loved ones, they do it for you.”
