Would you like another blanket...? I won't say I'm warm with what I have, but I could spare one if you... if you did need one...

And now, after all of this, we're going home anyway.

I ... just can't put it off anymore, can I? Hmmm. I'm ridiculous, aren't I? I planned all this out. Coming to Rechesa to check on them. And now, I just can't bear to know whether or not they're all right.

And what will I even say to them, if they are? It's been forever, after all. Knowing Mother, she might think I'm a stranger~

... I don't know what I'll do if they aren't, hmmm. I can't really think about that.

There's things here, too. I'm letting it get to me, how stupid they're being. Don't they know that nothing lasts forever? And that they shouldn't mix business with pleasure? I see where this is going. I've seen it before. I've had it happen before. They're only going to regret even going there. But ... still.

... I feel I should probably apologize. I overreacted, I suppose.

Finally, another letter from Dad and Peter! They're staying in a waytown for a while because of the snow, but Dad says they hope to get moving again soon, even if it's just a little at a time.

They're hoping to get home by the beginning of spring...I sure hope they can.

Peter's going to look so different...not just the injuries, but he might even have a beard, or longer hair by now. I can only remember him as how he looked before he and Jeff left.

Not like it matters, I'll just be glad to have him back. But it's still weird.

I keep expecting to see them behind us. What would we even do if an entire wing of Pegasus Knights swooped down out of nowhere? Even if we saw them coming, there would be nothing we could do. If Lord Grigory really did want us all dead ... but I'm sure he would have sent them by now. I just have to keep telling myself that. Every day that goes by gets us farther from him, and makes it less likely they'll come after us. We just have to keep going! Honestly, we should probably worry more about the weather than some pursuit that might not even happen. If those clouds start to get dark ...

Ugh, it's like I just can't stop thinking awful things. We got out of there. Everyone's going to be fine. Kail's already looking better than he was, and I'm sure Gebann will be soon, too. Nessa's always working miracles like that, right?

She has changed. It's for the best, I'm sure. She seems to have better confidence, now, and why wouldn't she? Years of mingling with Razen's upper class, well, I'd be more concerned if all of that hadn't straightened that spine of hers, some. Perhaps that's why James has taken on such a fancy for her.

... Not that I've the time to wonder much about those things, of course. Dairanne is living another life entirely, now, and so am I. She has her parties and lessons and silly flirtations, that's fine. I've had more more than my fill of such things, and one day, she'll have hers, too.

I have the work of the Goddesses to attend to. Nothing could be more important than that.

Hilary dear. I hope you can think of another healer to send to Father, because I'm afraid this ... man you have recommended is lacking in character. He has caused quite a commotion, and I have explicitly requested that he make his leave immediately. I'm disappointed, truly. I thought he would know better than to make advances towards another man's wife.

I just want to announce that all of the sighing and starry eyes around here lately are completely ridiculous. It's like everyone thinks they've suddenly up and tripped into a fairy tale, what the hell. You can't walk down the street without someone wanting to talk about how unexpected and romantic and blah blah sometimes it sucks being the Queen's cousin, like I have any special insight into any of this insanity! I don't! In fact, I want nothing to do it!

And I tell these people that, and they think I'm joking! I'm so insulted right now, you have no idea.

This is already quite different. This is no simple businessman, for one. Judging by his appearance at that party, he's one of the more influential figures, here. Though whether that's out of respect, or fear ... it's difficult to tell. He was quite strange, though he seemed amenable enough to overtures to meet again. He must be as curious about me as I am about him. I hope I haven't moved too quickly ... this has never been easy for me. I'll have to conduct the entire investigation through social calls and polite conversation, and those things ... well. They're certainly not my strong point.

It was easier when I had a letter from Grandfather and the man was terrified that I'd uncover some problem with the ledgers. Fear makes people clumsy. ... Something to keep in mind.

You haven't told me how Bertrand enjoyed his gifts, you know. Of course, I do know how Rhia gets, around the holidays. No doubt you've all slept clear through this last week recovering from all the excitement.
