Your second reading was right. Eventually he'll have given up the pre-agreed upon story, when he feels that he can no longer hold on. This pre-agreed upon story being more plausible, but still not the truth.
Perhaps him coming home, having served for 9, possibly 10, years. His struggle with life on civvy street, diagnosis with PTSD.
I can't remember where I was going with this one. Perhaps with a few more ideas he can be rescued and made into a proper sub. Go to Comment

All magic is suddenly gone. No mage can sling sorcery anymore. This upsets all empires and civilizations. It is soon discovered though, trough the combined work of mystics, scholars and dreams, that all the magic has been drawn into a single orb in a vast tower located at one of the poles. Whoever gets there first wins the greatest price in history, access to all the magic in the world. But who owns the tower?
