Clarissa won't tell anyone unless I make her and she's acting weird and everyone is worried and she's gotta tell them! Maybe I can get her to come over and then make her tell everyone and she won't be able to avoid it and then it'll all be better again!!

[Filter: Public]

Anton!!! Can we have everyone over and play cards or I don't know but we should invite Clarissa and Daisy and Demi and Lenore and Eri and everyone over and do something really fun!! PLEEEEAAAASSSSEEEEEE!!!!

Poor Charles, I think he's beginning to feel trapped now that Mother is pushing him to develop a real interest in gardening. I should be more amused by this, but I can't help worrying. Typical me, I suppose.

Ah, well. There's plenty more important things to be thinking about today~

[Public, in Kilian]

Happy birthday, Nansi~! I know I've said it in person but it bears repeating~

Aah, suddenly I'm feeling a bit nervous...the last time Mother and I spent any real time together I was still only a girl. Of course we both know I'm hardly a girl anymore, but...mm, I certainly feel a bit like it, wanting so badly to impress Mother, for her to see how wonderful my life here is and for her to be proud of me. ...mm, then again, hasn't that always been my way? Always wanting everyone to be proud of me.

Some things never change, I suppose.

But why dwell on that, hmm? There's so much to be done, and so much to be excited for...

Adrian -- remain here and see to the preparations for tonight's sermon. I must -- I will return shortly, I -- I trust that you can handle this for a time, yourself.

You will be glad to hear, sister, that I think I may have gotten through to our little brother. Just a bit, mind you, but it is a crack in that famous obstinance ... it will only get easier from here. I believe that.

[Filter: Gideon, in Atsirian]

I need to ask you a favor, love.

I shouldn't be so surprised. Of course we've made our way here. Not three days in this city, and we're set up in its castle as honored guests ... though truthfully, they treat us more as tolerated guests, at best. And if they knew our history, who we really are ...? At least Lauren truly does have a claim to this ... but I can't help but wonder how long we have here, all the same. How long before they tire of harboring heirs from a House half a continent away, or they discover some kernel of the truth? We need time to gather our thoughts, to plan this out.

How long before the disasters begin?

Will I still feel this sick relief, when they do? Relief in knowing there are more important things to focus on than my own selfish, ridiculous situation. Yes, I probably will, sharper than even now. Dragons, I'm ... I am the worst sort of ...

I can't ... Dragons, help me.

Eriena, my dear, this simply will not do.

Now I have stood by silently, all this past week, watching you work and worry and rattle yourself down to the bone ... and I am telling you truly, here for all to see just how serious I am! You must allow yourself some rest.

To that end, I have taken it upon myself to arrange a private outing for the two of us, far from this stern old castle, and I dearly hope you will do me the courtesy of both joining me and leaving your worries far behind as we depart, hm? And trust me, my dear, you are utterly free of obligation this evening. You will find the remainder of your appointments for the evening may ... mysteriously require rescheduling, soon, if they have not already. There is absolutely no reason to refuse the opportunity to indulge yourself ... or rather, to allow me to indulge you, as is my duty and fondest pleasure.

And you needn't worry about Emily, of course. I've seen to her with every care and caution. She'll have six eyes on her at all times, or several of my own best men are like to soon be sent packing back to Rowan in rather ... unflattering circumstances, I promise you.

You can't possibly refuse! Tell me you'll join me at the carriage.

If she requires me to work miracles, she could at least have the grace to tell me why. Where has she even gone? When the sun touches the horizon, and there is no one on the dais to take up the torch and occupy the attention of that crowd -- I certainly have nothing prepared. They would likely take it as an insult, besides. To come here, promised a sermon by Karlesta Faedya herself, only to be served instead by a simple Reliz, a man.

What could be so important?

I cannot chance this. And she must learn that there are consequences to acting an irresponsible little girl, when an entire city, soon an entire country, expects their Prophet's daughter, a grown woman with a properly developed sense of responsibility.

De Melyndra, I am sorry to trouble you with ill news, but I fear I may soon be in some difficulty. I require your guidance.

I don't like this. What if Father finds out? What if they find out Lauren is lying about everything? I don't even know what I should be doing or how I should be acting. I miss just being able to hide in the background and follow everyone else and not have to be anyone important.

This castle though it's... so amazing and I can't believe how tall it is. I want to fly up to the top and see what it's like up there. If I ask, I wonder if they would let me.

[Filter: Lauren]

Um... Lauren...?

I... am I doing okay? I don't know what I'm supposed to do or how I'm supposed to act and I've never had to do anything like this. I'm scared...

Can we talk? I know I ain't the person you want to see writin to you again and I wouldn't blame you if you ain't gonna write back.

I just-

I wanted to apologize.

So we have ended up inside the castle after all. Watched and tolerated by the ruling family, no less. Although I have to say, it is a small relief to be thought of as a simple retainer instead of the lead troublemaker.

Still, this invites an entirely new set of problems.

[Filter: Lauren]

You're doing well. Perhaps you should be leading. I could get used to this.

[Filter: Gebann]

I have to admit, I'm surprised. You are doing well in hiding yourself in plain sight, even with assistance.

What's wrong? You haven't written here for a really long time and I'm worried now. And I need your help because I want to figure out where the spot we got lost at was. But only if you want to help. And if you can. And um ...

Just please write back.

Hmm, perhaps it is time to gently push Kiefer to consider Martha's future. If he is anything like my brothers, it is entirely possible that he still sees her as a girl, rather than a woman. Why, Martha is ... less shy now. Yes, a little, which is significant indeed~! Surely he has noticed that?

Ah, if he is anything like my brothers, he ... has not. But that is what a wife is for~

I hope everyone had a wonderful Moon Festival. The night of the festival truly is one of my favourite times of the year, I think, because I have such fond memories of it. Oh, how accomplished I felt when I finally managed to stay awake for the entire night~ I think I was eight, or was I younger? I do remember having to do it in secret. Mother would have been angry had she had known what I was up to, and I suspect she may be bitterly disappointed if she were to know now, so do keep it a secret between us, hm~?

Darling, have you ... given notice to anyone in Rowan of our visit?
