Amelia's Diary

Next Steps is a Document in the Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration DLC Blood Ties. It belongs to the Amelia's Journals set and consists of a diary entry written by Lara's mother Amelia that chronicles the day when she introduced Richard to her family.

This document is found inside Lord Croft's Study in Croft Manor. It is a leather bound diary.

Mom's own words... I can almost imaging her speaking. I wish I could remember her voice.

I finally introduced Richard to the family. It went precisely how I imagined it. Icy, but polite grace from mother. Indifference and disinterest from father. And thinly veiled contempt from Atlas. Of course they don't approve. To them, Lord Croft is the man who took away their beloved daughter and ruined her long standing engagement (I was never going to marry that repugnant Earl of Farringdon anyway).

One might think they would be happy that I was being courted by a genuine Lord of the Realm. I just happens to be Richard Croft - in their eyes, the man who single handedly ruined a once great family.

But there's nothing to be done now. Watching how Richard dealt with their subtle insults and disrespect... such grace and calm. I know he did it for me. I think I'm falling in love with this man.

It will break my mother's heart, but I cannot live the life she imagined for me. My time with Richard has only made this clearer.
