There is something strange going on. Healer Phelan is very specific as to what is not ailing Father. It is a long list and there are few answers. There has to be something I am missing. He knew something, I know he did, but I cannot tell what it is. It has to be here. I am so close. Perhaps a few more hours will be enough.

I am terribly sorry Eudora, but I am going to have to cancel our plans together for the evening. I am simply feeling under the weather and think it is best to stay in my room to recuperate. Please do not be upset with me, I did so very much want to go out tonight.

Inheritance? How could I have never thought of that. I can't imagine the scandal that would happen if Grandfather actually did that, and that anyone would even think he would is just ridiculous. I guess I can't exactly blame anyone for thinking that might be what I'm after by spending time with Grandfather, but how can I prove to them otherwise?

Even if Grandfather somehow manages to put an end to everyone hating me for... doing that... to Clarice, what is going to keep them from just coming up with other ways to ruin my reputation? If they think I want Grandfather to give me everything, they're just going to keep doing it.

Grandfather thinks that all of this is happening to me because someone thinks I'm going after their inheritance. Can you believe that? Why would anyone think Grandfather would give me anything, just because I was spending time with him.

...hey. I just thought...well, today is her birthday, and it's still-you know, I just figured maybe you'd want to talk? ...I need to talk.

It's just not fair. I know thinking that doesn't change anything, but it just isn't.

I'm impressed. Shucks and Bhargest are already starting to lose weight and are looking more and more like their old selves again. I've got to hand it to you Mi, the men are doing much better with them than I would have guessed. I didn't expect those dogs to want to even pay any attention to some of them, but it seems a new face was just enough to get them to get out of that damn barn.

Are the men doing better, or do they view this as just another chore?

Well, that should be the last of it. The shed's been repainted, and the glass for the window replacement should arrive today ... Mark, Kim, one of the boys from the shop in town will be in to set it, later. If one of you gets the door, please let me know when he arrives. I need to send the rest of the payment I promised back with him.

This is all so strange. I never imagined that I would ever receive two roses, one day, but ... well, it's happened, hasn't it?

Sir Jason really is very kind, and attentive, and handsome enough, too, but ... well, compared to Jack, he's very boring, isn't he? And certainly not as brave or daring. And certainly not as resourceful, I can't even imagine how Jack arranged that delivery, after so long! But ... Amelie and Josiah would certainly approve of Sir Jason, and ...

Really, it was never supposed to even become an issue, not really. Just a little diversion to make Amelie happy. He wasn't supposed to actually be interested!

[Filter: Jack]

Hello, Jack~

I just wanted to make sure you knew I did get your rose! I had to rush back to the manor, afterward, and it was very difficult to conceal it all from Amelie and Josiah, but I managed! And then of course it was all rush rush to make it to the party at court, and all of that, but I'm sure you can imagine how that all went. It was all very hectic, but very splendid, too!

I won't ask how you managed to do it, but I do wish I had some way to return the favor. It seems so unfair that you can still find a way to be so gallant from so far away, and there's absolutely nothing I can do in return!

I should encourage him to host an event of his own. There is only so much I can do, meeting in public as we have been. I could call on him myself, perhaps, but it wouldn't provide any opportunities to look at his manor. But if he were to host something ...

He's not a Keirnan native. It would be just the sort of thing expected of him. I doubt a very large crowd would attend, but a respectable number would, simply for the novelty of it. It might provide unique opportunities. Hm.

A private calling, then, and I'll see what I can encourage. It may take some time for him to warm to the idea enough to really consider it, but it isn't as though I'm lacking in time, is it?

Well, cousin, you've seemed a good deal more cheerful of late, if you don't mind my pointing it out.

I think having such an important guest will brighten things up. And...maybe things aren't truly as bad as they seem? Lady Clarice is still a wreck, but we'll make sure nobody ever does such a thing to her again. And Uncle Stephan...he's still with us. Even if we don't know for how long, he's here. And I still have time to spend with him...it won't make up for the lack of closeness, but still.

Lord Leon, it's been simply lovely getting to know you these past several days! I'm so glad Lady Benedette thought to suggest you visit Rhia~

You know ... I'm beginning to feel very sorry for the tailors, here. Mother has had me stand in for new measurements three times this past week, and there's been a different woman taking those measurements each time. She's having new formal suits made, in the proper colors ... but I'm not sure if she's had disagreements with some of them, or if she's simply commissioning from all of them and pitting them against one another. They always seem so harried to me.

I suppose it's not really my place to question. I'm just glad for the work they do on my behalf.

Ugh. I wish I could just get away with not going to that thing tomorrow, but ... it's not like there's any getting out of it. Everyone's probably going to be there, and ... yeah. It's for Nessa's birthday, too ...

I just don't feel like celebrating anything right now. Whatever. I'm a selfish little baby, what else is new.

I said I would trust her to take care of herself, and of course, I meant it. But ... it only seems to be getting worse, since we spoke. Hardly what progress looks like.

I just can't imagine what it could be, to have her so out of sorts. I've never seen anything like it. She's ... well enough in a crowd, but the moment she feels safe enough to let the act drop, she's ... mn. It must have to do with her work for House Bresa; what else could it be? I've never understood everything to do with that business, and I'll be the first to admit it. But the way I did understand it, it shouldn't be enough to affect her like this. She was ready to give up on it all, not long before she left for her sister's wedding, and even the notion of admitting defeat did not affect her so deeply.

That's a part why this is bothering me so deeply, I suppose. The fact that I just cannot understand it, no matter what angle I try to take.

This all worries me a good deal more than I'd like to admit.

Does it seem to you that Pearl has been ... ah, I don't know. She's seemed a little ... upset, and ... at first, I thought perhaps she was uncomfortable with everything that happened with Lauren, on Rose Day ... they're friends, after all, but ...

Maybe it's nothing ...

Ah, I'm sorry. I just -- I'm not really sure who else to talk to, about it, and ... ah, yes.

Dragons, I'm exhausted. Ever have one of those days that seems to drag on and on, and it feels like nothing happens but you're still tired at the end anyway? Today was definitely one of 'em. I'm just glad to be home at last.

[Filter: Private]

And of course James isn't there. He's been with Ceilia's family more often than he is with us lately...says he feels more at home there. Well, I'm still not giving up on my resolution, I won't be one of those people who bemoans that they took someone for granted only to lose whatever relationship they had.

I figure if there was ever a time to ask about this, it's while you're upset with him, so!

Obviously, you know a little more about Gebann than the rest of us. You're terrible with secrets, by the way. I figure he must be some kind of Korin nobility -- I pretty much told him I thought so, and he didn't deny it -- but I'm curious as to just how much trouble he's likely to get us in, here. Is he actual wandering nobility, like Lauren? Is he from a fallen house, here, with a bunch of enemies we don't know about? Is he an exile, maybe?

Come on, I know you know something.

So, I Ugh, I

I really hate to ask this, but ... do you think I could have my old room back? Just for a night. I don't think I can stay ... there. At home. Not tonight. I just -- Daisy just told me something that I need to think about some more, before I can ever even look at that place again, so -- so yeah.

If it's not okay, that's fine. I'll stay at the houses of healing, for a night. They won't mind.

I hate my brothers. They never leave me alone about anything. I thought they would be bored of teasing me about Rose Day by now, but they're even worse than they were before. Everything I try to do to make them stop just makes it worse too. If I ignore them, then they just do it louder. If I yell back at them then they just do it more because they know they're upsetting me. They even follow me around. If I was an older brother I wouldn't make fun of my younger brothers like they do to me.

It's amazing how fast the jungle can reclaim places. I doubt this house has been unused for more than ten years. I recognize these markings from a more obscure cult. They fell fast. Regardless, look how fast the plants have managed to break in. An entire city could be claimed by the jungle in as little time as a century if there were no one to fight it back.

Okay, so I've been thinking about it since Rose Day and, while I know they're really simple, I just really like the idea of pansies. They just come in so many colours and I think they're really pretty.

Well, Debby, I have some good news for you. Josephine says you've been exceptionally well-behaved in your lessons lately, and I'm certainly glad to hear that you've been so good for her. I've been worried, but she's assured me that I really have no reason to be.

So I thought perhaps you might like the day off from lessons tomorrow so that you could spend some time with your friend. Only an hour or two, of course, but I thought it had been so long since you got to play with her, and you've certainly proven that you feel sorry for your poor attitude last time. How does that sound to you?
