If I could get some proof that all of this is worse than I thought it was... The one thing I can do is look into this from another angle. I have done some rather sensitive things in the past, and there is certainly something being held back from me. I can't press the issue and hope to have any reasonable composure. Instead, I can try to get the information behind the scenes.

Meanwhile, at least one of the men I've been trying to get in contact with will accept an invitation to dinner. It will be good to finally have some social contact at a restaurant again.

I think I'm going to need a new summer wardrobe from the looks of what I have that's wearable. I go through this every year. It seems like my summer clothes always get worn more easily than my winter ones.

I don't know what in the Dragons is going on between the two of you, but the second I mentioned that you had recommended Alice to take over when I retire she flew into a rage I would never have expected from her. I don't know what made her more mad, that I offered it to you, or that you turned me to her. Whatever it is, you need to put a stop to this and fix it. Now. It's making my job a Dragons damned living nightmare.

But first, stop being a petulant child and take the damn job. Trust me when I say you'd be good at it.

You must be relieved that Mother has a target of her attentions besides you, now that Aunt Mariana's here. Oh, don't tell me otherwise, I've seen you grimacing whenever Mother's back is turned, and I know she's been absolutely smothering you. She's only excited about the wedding, you know, it's the sort of occasion she thrives upon.

[Filter: Public]

Well, Auntie, I have to admit that the children have all thoroughly impressed me with how much they've grown. They're also all such little flatterers, but I'm sure you know that, the way they come up begging for Cousin Fartgus to take them out riding, or to market, or to beg some sweets for them from the kitchen. Never fear, though, I'd never spoil the darlings overmuch, but I thought I would let you know just how much they've managed to make me smile these past few weeks.

Right, so, girl, I got some good news.

Cleaned up my place! It's right polished for you now. Now, I don't want you to get your hopes up too high, so don't go expecting any mansion or nothing, but I figure now it won't be too embarrassing to show you my place. And once you're there, well, we can figure out what we wanna do from there, huh?

What do you say?

So, you must excuse my curiosity, but I've been dying to know what you think of being Kilian. It must be very odd for you, after so many years thinking you were a Koriner! Who could have known that you were secretly one of us all along.

So you're aware, I'm not likely to be able to get away for the next couple of weeks. Maire was looking me for the other night because she had an ... announcement to make, and was rather irritated when she couldn't find me. And I'm afraid this announcement of hers is going to keep me stranded at home for a bit.

I thought you might want to know that before you got too worried. I'm sorry about it, believe you me.

How much longer do you think it'll be until we reach Baethan? A week? Two? I'm terrible at guessing the distance. I've been gone from Kilia too long to know.

Ashford is much too fascinated by the garden. He keeps bounding over and trying to get into things, and it's driving Mom crazy. Charles and Father manage to keep him out of our way most of the time, but, well, they can't watch him every second.

I feel bad, though. I think it's almost adorable how fascinated he is, even if it's a hassle to have to keep shooing him away!

Clarissa's doing better!! She was talking about baby names and said she was gonna start looking for a crib and she thinks she can cut how many hours she's gonna have her cart at the market less and have it closed when there aren't as many people around and I told her that I might be able to watch the baby for her if it was okay with Anton but she's doing better!!!

What's all of this about a kidnapping? My goodness. There are several dozen different versions of this tale circling the streets, today, and each more scandalous than the last. Lady Benedette is missing, however, on that all agree ... these journals included, it seems.

Has anyone heard what all of this is about, concerning Benedette?

I will admit that I am ... somewhat concerned, after reading the talk of those Rhian ladies. Surely it cannot be true? Has Lord Isaac been informed ...? I fear to say anything, without knowing more, and yet ...

[Filter: Private]

I suppose this is where the anxiety comes in...it will be an adjustment, thinking of myself as a wife. Even though I've been looking forward to it for such a long time, now that it's actually happening...!

It's going to be wonderful, though. I couldn't imagine anyone I'd rather have as a husband than Colin!

We're almost there! It'll be about another week, but we're almost in Mansoure! The last part of the trip went by really fast, I can hardly believe it.

I sure am gonna miss everyone, though. I'll keep in touch with them through letters, but it won't quite be the same after we've been together so long. Irma offered to stay in the city with me for a few days while I got used to it, but I know the other merchants need her more...it was sweet of her to offer, though.

What do you think, Dillon? Perhaps if I take my men and ride down and somehow rescue Lady Benedette from whatever has befallen her, she'll be so pleased that she'll consent to wed me, instead. You can have Eriena, in fact, be my guest. No doubt she'll be devastated at my loss, and fall weeping directly into your waiting arms. You couldn't ask for an easier courtship.

What are you plans for the day, love? I had thought we might be able to spend some of it together, just the two of us. I have always enjoyed those private moments, especially as we never seem to get enough of them, between all that has to be done.

Perhaps we could go for a walk or horseback riding, if the weather stays nice. Or just spend some time quietly in the library. Whatever you desire.

Why did I agree to this? All it's doing is remind me of every time I failed in the past.

None of this books really fit either. They aren't for adults who just never could manage even the most basic magic. There probably isn't anything that deals with that, or else Thomas would have found it by now. Maybe I should go and start taking lessons with Laurel.

I am trying though, for better or worse. At least it's something to take my mind off everything else.

Let it be known that Derek is a terrible, terrible person for keeping his visit to Rowan a secret from me for so long! He's fortunate that it has been such a delight having him and Constance and the children here, or I would have considered not speaking to him for a while~ I cannot believe how Kataryn and Lindsay have grown. Why, Kataryn is quite the little lady now, and Lindsay is such a fine young man. And Cayden, oh, I think he takes after Derek the most out of all the children. Such a quiet, good child. I truly wonder how Derek and Constance do it~

Girls, I hate to do this, but ... I think I need your assistance.

It's these books Lord Grigory sent to us, the ones I've been using to research Lancel's condition. I've scarcely done anything but pour through them for months, now, and ... well, I'm just not making near enough headway as I thought I would. There's so much information ... their libraries really are as extensive as we've heard.

If ... if all of you wouldn't mind, would you be willing to take shifts helping me go through them? I'll give you a list of terms and subjects to watch for, and if you find anything in a book that relates to them, you can put them in a pile for me to look over.

I know this doesn't sound like fun, but this information could help save Lancel, and it could be good for your studies, as well ...
