Ugh, this is a fucking hassle.

Flo says it's "good for me" to deal with all of this, but I am really starting to get pissed at her. I don't want to do all of this, fuck you, help me out, here. I have to find a convoy to go with who isn't going to just take all of our money and wipe their asses with it, I have to find a route, I have to pack up all of our fucking stuff -- that is stupid, by the way, packing away every fucking single thing you own and sticking it all in crates? Fuck that. Life was a lot less complicated when I had nothing I cared about leaving behind, just a bunch of shit I'd stolen and could steal again if I tried.

It's still going to be another good two weeks before we get going, too, and then a fucking month or something to get to Norey on this slow as shit convoy I found, but it's the only one where the teamster didn't look like he was worse news than the bandits his guards are protecting us from down the Pass.

And then once I get there, ugh, I don't even want to fucking think about that.

Why did I let Flo even talk to me into this? And why won't she fucking help me with all of this bullshit?! This was her fucking idea! Dragons.

I'm only going to say this once, boy, so listen close.

It's starting to look to me like you might be some trouble, and we've got troubles enough of our own in Rhia right now. We don't have any room for yours. That's all I'm going to say, but you'd best be gone from this place by the end of tomorrow, or there'll be more to say than that.

Do you understand me?

You know, I always find it utterly impossible to decide what to wear to a wedding!

I've been deliberating for days now, Rebecca, I'll have you know, and I just can't come to a conclusion I like. Oh, I'll decide on one thing, but then I'll second-guess myself and pick another, and then I'll pick a third, and then I'll go back to the first. It's absolutely harrowing. I think I'm driving my own servants mad with it, poor things. But, then, I suppose that is what I pay them for.

You must be absolutely ready to burst from excitement. I know I would be, in your shoes! Though I imagine the anxiety is coming in as well right about now, isn't that always the way it goes? Not that I would know, but I've heard such from a few various sources.

Four days. Something is going to happen. Everyone knows it. When it does, how much more time do I have before I have to make my move? We have been here long enough, and yet I still have no idea what to do. My sister is careful. Perhaps too careful. At least Nessa's magic seems to work as she promised. It is still terrifying every day I find myself face to face with my Father or that pretender of an heir. Seeing her manipulate him is sickening.

I am not afraid of them. I'm not. I am afraid of the consequences to my friends and companions should I happen to get caught. What was I thinking, bringing them into this? It is too late now. It is not as if I can leave. That would only look more suspicious. I just have to make the best of being here, so that it was not a waste.

The cat's still here, and if Tina has her way he'll be staying for good. I don't think anyone's gonna come to get him, it's been a week already and Tina says if someone were gonna pick him up, they'd have done so by now.

I still don't trust him. Sleeping with the door closed has helped, at least that way I won't wake up with a face full of fur and claws. But he's still a little monster and a real pain in the neck, he's always getting in the way and knocking stuff over...I've heard people say dogs are a handful, but they've got nothing on this cat.

Still, I oughta at least try to put up with him. For Tina's sake.

Could working at one of the churches be the answer? I wouldn't get any money, but Diane and James make enough to support us, right? And Siera's right, it's not charity if you're working for it...it wouldn't be like I was begging.

Maybe I should at least give it some thought.

[Filter: Public]

Got another letter from James. I gotta give him credit, even though he's been busy he still finds plenty of time to write. They just left Pavolan, and they're headed for Papan now...he says Pavolan is one of the nicest places he's ever seen.

I'm glad he's having a good time.

So I was thinking. You've been doing really good lately with all your training. It's about time you got a challenge. It's one thing to sneak around and follow someone who ain't even in a hurry. I think I should get you following someone who's in a hurry.

Good news, everyone!

Lord Valtes set a date to meet with me, finally. June 4th, in the afternoon. It will be him and his personal guard, maybe some advisors ... they'll expect me to bring a few of those of my own, thank Dragons. Lawrence, Nessa, you'll be my advisors, right~? And Keagan and Gebann can be my guards. That should work just fine.

I have a few ideas for what I'll say ... I think I can convince him to let us stay as long as we need. I'm almost sure of it, actually, I've been thinking about this for awhile. We should go over everything before then, Lawrence, Nessa ...

Anyway, don't be nervous. I'll work everything out, you'll see.

[Filter: Gebann]

I'm going to kill your sister. Ugh. She sent a servant out to fetch me, after lunch, that's exactly the word he used with me, fetch. Like a dog! He took me to her solar, and it was just her and me, and she starts this whole speech about how we're intruding on her father's hospitality and it's past time we explained ourselves, and all of that, before she finally tells me Lord Valtes agreed to meet. It's obvious that if it were up to her, we wouldn't stand a chance.

I hope you're right about your father being open to this suggestion ... I'm afraid Ruseia has been counseling him to make us leave.

We can't leave yet. We can't leave until we solve this mystery, and the Holy Three alone know how long that is like to take. We are lucky that Ilserna is not so far from Razen, by dragonback, but the Queen is like to take offense if we delay too long. Her royal messengers were obvious enough in their meaning ... that we are expected, and soon.

It would hardly be wise to risk insulting the Queen further, after ... what happened.

And yet ... and yet we are no closer to solving this problem before us, and time passes so quickly. What can I do, besides search the crowds for a man who cannot possibly be here, and pray?

You have four children. One day you find a journal with the scribblings of a child who is going through the beginning stages of our great game. It's in an area where all of them frequent, such a stupid beginner's mistake. Oh, what is this? They are writing as the opposite sect as you are.

I wonder how curious you are about which one of your darlings you're fighting a war against.

Is it working? I don't know. I haven't thought about Fabian for a long time, it's true. But some days, it just hits me, and it ... it still hurts. He rejected me and I'll never know why! How am I supposed to move on from that?

But this hobby really is taking my mind off him. Maybe I can really make something out of it.

What is he waiting for? It has been nearly a month, and he has not done anything beyond being his usual irritatingly charming self. Is this another game? What does he want?

You cannot be such a gentleman that you are waiting for my husband's back to be turned, Nicolas. I did not think you would care. Morals, from you? Still ... perhaps it would be wise to send Dean away, somewhere. Bresa, perhaps, or Eblar. Some matter that requires his presence and expertise. Surely it would not be difficult to turn his attention elsewhere. I'm sure he will be glad to be out of the way.

Ah, I had forgotten the ... disruption a dragon's arrival can cause. Especially when there is more than one, and in royal regalia, no less. And now there is more commotion as we prepare to depart. I admit, it has been some time since I have felt this ah, excited. The prospect of flying is wonderfully thrilling. And there is the wedding to look forward to, of course. It is not long now, until the day arrives.

She's right. I could always go to him. What's keeping me here? Lord Craig hates me, I don't have any friends but her, and all the reasons I came here are gone now. If it don't work out, I could always come back. I just have to sell out any of my stock that could parish, and board up the place well enough to keep people out until I get back. It'll be months before I can do it, so I have time to decide.

If I don't come back, what's it matter?
