Ah, I must thank my dear Lady Eliza for how spectacularly full my social calendar has been this month. All my whining complaints of boredom are completely invalid, now. I haven't had time to feel bored at all! I'm sure that my dear Anita completely agrees with me. Why, if anything, I think we're beginning to feel a little exhausted.

Truly, Eliza ... you're a miracle worker.

You're not overtired yourself, are you? You haven't quite seemed ... on top of things, when we've spoken these last weeks.

... do I really look like that?

Is that so obvious to everyone what I am thinking of, when I look at Megan Eshene?

Such a young woman saw it. Drew it. Showed it to everyone else. Does Megan Eshene see it? Does she hate it? But she kissed me. I ...

I wish she would do this, for me. I don't know what's happening. She's a woman. Why can I not stop thinking of her? Why?

And who else has seen?

I have a quick question, are you busy? I mean, you must be busy, tomorrow's Rose Day, but it's ... actually a little related to that!! I need to ask you something. And if you don't want to tell me, you don't have to, but I might be able to help you ... !

Dragons, but he's miserable.

I thought he'd snap at me and tell me it wasn't my business, not ... pour out his heart to me. And ... he really did love her. I don't know what could have happened differently for either of them, or any other way this could possibly have turned out, but ... I wish it didn't have to be like this.

I just wish I could do something for him. He's going to be miserable all day for Rose Day, especially. And who could even blame him? In his shoes, I'd be just as upset.

There has to be some way that this can be fixed ...

Seraphine, tell me you're not going to cook for Philip. It's not even about me not liking him, this time, I promise. Do you know what kind of message that would send?

Please tell me you're not cooking for him.

All right, Lenore, I thought I'd let you know I made some arrangements. And I kept in mind that you didn't want nothing too fancy, so you don't have to even worry about getting all dolled up if you don't want to.

But no questions about what it is, all right? A man got to keep a little mystery about him. I just think you're gonna like it, that's all. I want to give you the best Rose Day you ever had.

I still cannot decide what I should make Sindre for Rose Day. He likes meat, but we do not have much money now, and meat is expensive. Maybe it will be okay if I buy a little, and add it with something else, but I feel like I should be doing more for him.

Karrin says I should make a pie, and it would be nice because it is still a little cold here, and a pie would be hot and filling. But pastry is difficult, I think. I might make it too dry, or wet, and it would not taste very nice, and poor Sindre will have to eat it. Maybe I can practice today in Karrin's kitchen. I think she will let me ...

I know you're angry at her, and I know she did something she ... probably shouldn't have, but I just thought you should know that she was thinking about you. And ... yeah.

Haha, Dragons, it's been a long time since I've felt like such a nervous little girl. Since ... well, things with Jack, I guess, back at the start. That didn't end so well. But it's a lot different with Sawyer. A world different.

After how messy everything got with Jack ... I don't know, I guess I thought that I'd never really be into this sort of thing again. Not in this way, at least. I thought I just wasn't suited to it, and it would always remind me of those men who'd try things with me when I was first out on my own. It made me feel ugly. Dirty, I guess. It definitely did with Jack.

But it doesn't have to be that way, does it?

Because it isn't, with Sawyer. I never get the feeling that he's using me, or that I'm bothering him, or that I'm just something else in his life.

He's a perfect gentleman. Jace says what he does because of that. Anyone who isn't just another guy looking for just one thing has to have something wrong with him, after all. And he's known I've been uncomfortable, I'm sure. And now, he gets that I'm ready, and I want to be with him ...

I think it's going to be tonight. I really do! And it's silly, but I really do feel like a giddy little schoolgirl. Haha, like I never did when I was actually that age, even.

Hm. Since I already feel silly enough ... maybe it's time to sort of put myself out there?

Well, can it hurt? Even if it doesn't turn out like I'm expecting, it might be nice! Romantic all on its own.

Rose Day.

I cannot help but wonder what Malfurion's favourite food is, every year, when this day arrives. It is not that he refuses to tell me. It is that on this matter, he tells me what I wish to hear, that anything I can make for him is his favourite. It is frustrating that I cannot pry that one small preference from my husband. And so it is every year, when I make something different and see if he will give anything away.

I do not think he means to vex me. Indeed, I wonder if this is his way of making each Rose Day different, even entertaining. A puzzle he thinks I will relish in solving. And I suppose in that, he knows me well.
