...I do wonder if Amelie has a point. She tells Tanner a man shouldn't be afraid of his mother, and he certainly does seem to be.

But he loves his mother so much, one can hardly blame him for wanting to make her happy...even if she is quite unreasonable. Ignoring her own son for three months over something as simple as a costume choice?

I truly hope they can reach some form of understanding. Poor Tanner...

So last year, we didn't get to spend Rose Day together for...obvious reasons. So I was really counting on making it up to you this year! But now I might have to make up for two in a row next year, unless we're lucky enough to find someplace to stay for the day..

I should definitely not be worrying about this. She said she'd tell me when she's ready. And she will! I believe that.

Besides, I can't blame her for being ... out of it, lately. Rose Day, right?

Yeah, I'm not a big fan either.

Hey, I just wanted to thank everyone who came. Last I heard, everyone was still, you know, alive. No sudden deaths mean I can call that a big success, right?

This just seems ... pointless.

How am I supposed to separate rumour and fact in a place like this? The longer I stay here, the more I think I should be home, with my family. Rose Day is barely a week off, and my wife is a world away, worrying over things she should never have to concern herself with, ever again. I should be there, doing my best to make her forget all of that. Instead I'm here, chasing ghosts for Grandfather -- and it's an honor, to be trusted with this, it is, but when there's so little of substance ...

And to be brushed off so completely, when I tell him so.

When he sends me to take care of these things for him, shouldn't he trust my judgment? Aren't my insticts worth anything at all?

He's strange, there's no doubt about it. That's hardly noteworthy, however, when everyone here is just as strange, at least.

You know, a little part of me is sort of disappointed. Rechesa's a mess, no doubt about it, but after having been in Norey after that disaster, I just can't help but find this sort of underwhelming. There just isn't the same sense of desperation, here, y'know~? Oh, people are running around like headless roosters, that's true enough, and you still hear of riots some nights and the awful things happening to unlucky folks just outside the walls, but it just can't hold a candle.

Guess it's a good thing we've got more frills on our carts to pamper our visitors than relief supplies for the hard done by, eh? Most everyone thought to bring the latter, but our insider info puts us ahead of the curve again~

I feel so ... dishonest. I'm really no better than Aileen, now, hiding this from Mark and Kimberly. I just can't imagine what good it could do, them knowing. They'll be angry, I'm sure, and I'd rather not cause a scene.

Despite it all, I'm too fond of that girl to subject her to Kimberly with her temper in full swing. And who knows what Mark would even say. It's clear enough that they've had their own plates rather full of late without my inviting more drama to all involved.

It doesn't make a bit of difference at all, knowing, besides. I almost wish she hadn't told me. ... Almost, but not quite.

Gebann, hi~

I just wanted to thank you, again, for keeping me company at dinner, the other night! I feel so bad for Celeste, you know, but she's just not used to these conditions! It was so nice of you to sit in for her, for me ... sometimes, you know, with the way we can just talk like that for hours, I forget that I haven't even known you for a full year, yet!

It feels wonderful to tell that man no, for once. No, my Lord, I think not. You'll simply have to wait. You cannot always have your way. Throw as many ridiculous tantrums as you like.

There will be consequences to all of this, of course, I realize. Likely soon; what a pity that Rose Day is so poorly timed, this year. But it doesn't matter. Let him vent his frustration however he likes; he cannot take this from me. I can refuse him, and there is nothing that he can do, save for claiming petty revenge where he can. Isaiah looks so like him; what can he possibly say?

He is trapped just as neatly as I am, now. Do you enjoy the feeling, my Lord? I suspect not.

Poor thing.

How much trouble do you think I would get in if I didn't do a damn thing, for Rose Day. Except maybe flowers for Rhosie and Ethne. They can't be upset with me if I get them flowers, right?

I ... suppose I'm just wondering ...

What, exactly, are you planning to do, if we're, ah ... not precisely in a position to find roses, in a week? It's seeming rather likely that we won't be, and ... I'm sure Pearl will still try her best, with the supplies we have, and I'm just not sure what to do. There's the chance that they'll have roses in Eina, I suppose, but I can't imagine that they'll be very common here after the holiday ... it's a wonder that they can get them here in the winter at all, let alone keep them here. And I can't stand the thought of doing nothing, when I'm sure she'll worry herself over her meal, and ...

... Ah, I probably sound rather ridiculous, don't I? Perhaps I shouldn't be worrying over it, but ... I suppose I'd rather worry over this, than anything else.

Advice really would be appreciated, regardless ...

It was as if everyone in the village simply decided to leave. That is the easiest explanation. But what could have happened to lead them to that decision? It must have come suddenly, unexpectedly. Wherever they went, they were not prepared, judging by all they left behind. And where could they have gone? This is Korin. There are long, harsh, and difficult miles between towns.

They could have heard news of an army approaching them. Their lord could have forced them out. Isn't it a wonder, how rumours of the walking dead have spread, with scenes like that dotting the Korin countryside? Where reason cannot explain, imaginations flourish.

Except in our case, the imaginary has become very real, more than once.
