Of course I would be a father figure in another life. It honestly shouldn't surprise me. Then I had to go and get myself killed in a war.

Still, Druid Knight of the Kilian Empire. That's not anywhere in my history books. Considering they don't really go back a thousand years, that shouldn't shock me. A lot can change in a thousand years indeed. If there's truth in any of this...

For some reason, I honestly don't think she's lying. As skeptical as I am, I really have little choice but to accept it. There is too much going on that is tied to us. If this is some elaborate ploy, some lie buried in this, what would it matter? It's clear what's happened whenever we've strayed from the path we're supposed to be on. We're on the path now, we have little choice but to accept what she told us as fact.

And the fact of the matter is, I have a good deal to do.

How does it feel to be your own favorite story?

My lady, I apologise for being detained by the guards. I have no reasonable excuse.

Is there any way I can be of service?

Damn, I don't even know where to begin.

I know I'm not exactly the model brother but even I wouldn't ever even think about doing something like that. It's just so distasteful. Really, that man is leagues beyond me when it comes to assholery and I don't begrudge him one bit of it.

That doesn't mean I'm so big of a person not to try and use it to my advantage though.

Good afternoon, dear ladies. I know that these last few days have been filled with many a storm cloud, however I hope that I might be able to tempt you out of doors and out into the sun! Surely there must be many exciting sights, now that spring is on your doorstep~ And I would be greatly honoured if you would share them with me.

Maybe I don't want Bertie to be a knight ...

... that's not fair of me, I know it's not ...! Knighthood is better than most people could dream, here in Dentoria ...! He's lucky! His father will make it all possible for him, and ... and he'll be happy with it, too, I think ...

But ...

But I just want my son to have a peaceful, uncomplicated, safe life. There's danger in the guard, or in the army, or even just on a tourney field. I don't want my sons to have to have --

This cannot be happening. Damn that soft-hearted boy. Damn him! I should have left him behind the moment I suspected something. I should have --

No, there's no time for that. Focus.

... haha. Focus on what?

She's vanished. The little bitch has vanished into the forests, and my knights are all too incompetent to find her. Of course that little idiot couldn't have saw which way she ran.

... we won't find her trail. Hah. We won't, not until the sun rises. Searching in the dark with torches and lamps, it's madness. And by morning, it will have been hours and hours, and she'll have a plan. She is not stupid.

She is far from stupid.

Damn her, damn them all, what am I supposed to do now? She could be anywhere. Anywhere. I swear, I will find her. I have to. I have no choice.

I ... should call of the search. Let them be fresh for morning. But I can't. I cannot do that, not when there's the smallest chance they could find something and give us a lead. We have horses. We can move faster, and ...

And we won't find her.

I --

I would give anything to ask Father what to do right now. Damn me, for killing him and leaving myself to deal with this all myself. Deal with everything, all of it, every last miserable moment from I was --


... I'll take a torch and join the search. I am doing no one any good sitting in here.

Damn her. I -- damn her.

I still can't believe how much happier Tina seems now...she told me yesterday that Floran is starting to feel a little like home to her. And Mom, she's been getting out there, trying to make friends. She never really had that many back home, it always worried us a little. I always wondered if a change of scenery would do her some good.

[Filter: Private]

Maybe this is what we all needed...to get away from the farm. Away from all the memories of Dad. Or maybe Floran's just magic...heh, maybe it's both.

Goodness, is April almost over already? It feels like only yesterday it was just starting...only a few more weeks and the day of the wedding will be here. I must confess, I'm just a tiny bit nervous...I'm very much looking forward to it, but to think I'll actually be married...

Archibald seems a bit tired lately, though...we all thought it would wear off when spring came, but it hasn't. He seems perfectly well otherwise, though...

Okay, Rachelle...I really hope you know what you're doing. I've always trusted your judgment, but I can't help feeling a little funny that you won't tell me anything. Guess I'll just have to wait and see, like you said...

Do you think anyone would mind if some of us went to see more of the city? I don't really have anything in particular I want but I'd just like to explore a bit. Hopefully this time we can do that without having guards watch us all the time.

Of course, this is only if Lady Lauren gives me her permission~

I must say, I'm still a bit aglow from my birthday, even a day later. It was just that wonderful a time. Good food, better company, and some wonderful presents on top of it all. What more could a girl ask for?

Actually, I know the answer to that because I did ask for it~ Mom agreed to give me an extra day off from the shop, so I just got to laze around some more.

Yes, life is good.

I seem to have found myself in a situation that would be difficult to get out of by myself. It's a situation that you might find suited to your particular talents. And, in fact, I believe you will thoroughly enjoy yourself while helping me with it.

Ugh, it's like there's a new mess every season to clean up. In winter it's slush, in spring it's mud. At least the weather seems like it's finally starting to dry out a little bit. I know that people go on that thing about April showers and May flowers or whatever but it just makes it hard as hell to get any work done. And it makes half the work cleaning.

I guess I shouldn't complain. We have more people here than last year, so ... more people to help clean up, I guess. People are complaining less, too, which takes a little stress off my shoulders.

Jarvis, some of the men were asking if you were going to be taking care of the dogs on your own now. I don't know why, but I figure they probably want to keep the work with the dogs if they can. I don't get it, but hey, I'm not really a dog kind of person.

And of course the moment we return, it's back to -- Symeon, honestly, what am I going to do with you? The poor girl is too petrified of hurting your feelings to refuse any of your little gifts. And you're -- you're just too determined to see something in her that isn't there. Something that never will be there.

what in the Dragons' names am I to do with you?

First things first. There's a lot of paperwork here I have to look after, and if I can find excuses to consult with Symeon about it, then that'll keep him preoccupuied. The rest of his time -- I can encourage him to spend it with the healers, looking after Lancel. I need to make it clear to Stephanie that she has no obligation to do anything he wishes of her, no matter how much she feels like she does.

Where do I even begin. I could --

Dragons, how much of this has just been left for me to look after?

So, I can tell her anything, huh? Anything, and she won't be bored or tell me that I'm being a nuisance and go away? Never had someone who actually wanted to listen to me before. Anyone above the age of four, anyway.

Still, I can't tell her everything. I have to bluff my way through talking about work, if she ever asks. It's a little too late to tell her I work for her father without looking like a liar. Which I er, technically am. The point is, she might not trust me after that. Here's hoping that Desmund never talks about me in front of her!

I'm ... not sure why I feel so uncertain about this. It is merely a recipe, after all. Something Matthias might like. Except I cannot quite decide what he would like. He likes steak, but does that mean that he likes other cuts of meat? That might not necessarily be true. And it is hot for a roast. Perhaps a pastry? Does he like pastry ...?

I knew I should have kept better notes.
