There is light at the end of the tunnel, albeit brief light. I have sent a rider to Eblar to pick up the two missing sheets that are much more important than the clerk realized. Since I can't finish without them, and I cannot start the next bout of work before I finish this one, I have until the rider collapses of exhaustion in front of me to myself. I suspect a great many horses to be burned out in his endeavor though, so it is not as much of a reprieve as it could be.

Cerise! We must make the best of it while we can!

It's ... actually really sad.

If they do love each other ... They can't really do anything about it, can they? Benedette's engaged, and I don't even know what Dad would think if Leon came home with her on his arm ... Not that it can even happen. I guess I see why they wanted to meet each other, but ... I don't know, it's sad. I wish I knew what that was like ...

I just don't know what Leon is going to do. I wish he'd told me. I wish he'd told me, but ... I guess I understand why he didn't. It's all so complicated, and it must be hard for him to deal with it even on his own ...

I just wish I knew what to say.

You know, that's about the best I could hope for, isn't it? He's half unhinged, I think, sometimes, and he's a self-absorbed, arrogant philanderer, and he's never going to want me.

I don't need somebody to want me.

Someone who'd rather marry me than a better wife because I'm interesting? Clever? Funny? No matter how twisted and ironic it might be, or what strange thing it might be coming from, that's about all I really want, is it?

Hey, maybe we're perfect for each other. What a lark that would be?

Bloody hell, seems like everyone is setting wedding dates, lately. Well, here's another one. August 23rd. Mark your sodding calendars.

At least, when I hide in my room like a scared little girl, I don't see him. It's been ... restful, the last day.

Where will this end? I fear to consult the fires ... It is wrong of me, and yet, I cannot help it.

So. I take it we're gonna be a bit warier, next time we come on some town. I ain't expectin' the same thing to happen twice, that'd be predictable, but it sure ain't a good omen.

Don't suppose you can think of anything that might make the lot of this make sense. I sure can't.

It's not like he doesn't have a point.

It's easy to say to him that none of Keran's men are going to be in Coliya to put him at ease. It's even likely, so it's not like I'm lying. If there's anybody there, they won't be following a couple of scruffy refugees around, even if they do accost a servant of the house.

But it doesn't mean they won't be around, somewhere. And it doesn't mean they won't overhear us if we're not careful.

I wish Lysander would stop saying things like this, I can never get them out of my head when he does.

Dragons, I wish she'd stop spending so much time with Philip.

I know if I say this to her she's just going to tell me I'm being ridiculous, again, but I'm not. I see how he looks at other girls, and I see how he looks at her, and it's the exact same! He just wants her for the chase, and then he'll forget she ever existed, whether she's the Princess of Dentoria or not. And she doesn't deserve that.

If I can just keep a close eye on him ... I can't write to him again, unless I want this to get even worse, but I can make sure he doesn't get too friendly when we're at court. That shouldn't be too hard. Now if only Seraphine would stop seeing him outsi

Ugh, Dragons, I wish he would just go away.

I know you're on your way here, with Aiden, by now.

I wish you hadn't come, but Aiden told me that I couldn't have stopped you, and I suppose that's true enough. Just do me this favor, then: Keep yourself safe. If it looks like I'm in trouble and it'll put you in danger to save me, you turn around and walk away. You have your brother to look after. I saw him writing earlier. Aiden is too thick to listen to me when I tell him this same thing, but I know you have an ounce of common sense.

Keep yourself safe, and alive and well. For your brother's sake, even if not for your own.

I know I've been quiet all day, but there's a very good reason! Cavvy got a new board game, and she's been beating me at it since this morning. I told her I was going to play it with her until I finally beat her at it, but she never even came close to losing.

I have to beat her at it tomorrow!

Eudora needs your help.

After ... the bad stuff that happened, Alastair hasn't been very happy. He's nice and understands that Eudora didn't mean for it to happen but Eudora can tell he's upset.

Do any of you know some way to help make him happy again? Anything special Eudora could do? It would be very, very, very helpful.

Wow, I can't believe it's almost my birthday again. I know it's not for a little while longer but it's still exciting already to me. Just another month and I'll be twenty-three! That's a nice age, I think, though twenty-two was pretty good too.

I just wish I could have my real birthday again. It's been awhile now. But I guess that just makes it extra special!

And it's almost Anton's birthday too which is why February is my favourite month of all.

We are going to have to cut back on some foods for a while. She says we should attend more parties so that we don't have to pay for everything we eat. It will raise awareness too.

The workshop has to be cleaned, and cleared. We can't have anything else getting in the way. It's going to be hard to fit everything inside as it is, and we can't accidentally reveal it before it's done by moving one of the pieces outside. It's going to be cramped for a few months.

It was hard to get all the iron we needed for the frame, and some of it isn't up to the standard we want it...

Well, we'll just have to live with it, and try to make it as perfect as possible.

Even after all these years, it still catches my be surprise – worries me even, to see them in the same room. I should be used to it, since I know it will happen but I always worry. So many things might happen ...

But no, no need to dwell on that. I am being foolish, that's all. Silly, silly me~

Guess the only thing I can do now is wait, and hope she's good on her word. Guess that's the real problem with always going for the sneaky types, huh? Not worrying too much about it, it should all work out. It'll work out like everything else has.

You know, maybe I can try not fucking provoking the people who give my wife a giant headache. Just once or twice for shits and giggles. Dragons fuck, I need to shape myself up. It's not like we don't have a hundred other problems. I can be witty me any time, but I should probably not do it as much as I've been doing it lately.

I can't imagine why Destin wants me to take more time. Really, most people wish for nothing but making these things shorter! Oh well, I may not understand it, but perhaps it's good advice. The people at the restaurant understood when I postponed it, and it will give me more time to really spice it up. I'm not sure if I really want to make it spicy.

Everyone is talking about marriage! Now that I've firmly made my decision, I think I see it everywhere. And on the seventh I can announce my own engagement after it's all said and done.

Ugh, and another close call. Guess it's time to avoid Megam for the rest of the season. Still not a good idea to get anywhere near the Hanalan coast either. Ocean's feeling a lot smaller.

Sindre says I'm being too protective of Beth. He thinks I should let her decide what she wants for herself. But what if it makes her unhappy? Then what kind of friend am I?

Women here are so ... thay're not like women in Atsiria. Sindre says that nearly all women outside of Atsiria are like this, thinking that men are more important than they are. I don't know how they can think that. Maybe because they haven't been to Atsiria before.

I must really seem very strange to people here, in very many ways.

Heh, think I've got the new crops all sorted now! Think I'll try growin some corn this year, along with the usual potatoes and tomatoes. And watermelons would sell great in the summer! Hope I can get them growin as big as the ones in Hanalan. I'm not a miracle worker, you know! I'll feel pretty good if I get them to even half the size.

Yeah, feelin pretty good bout this year.
