Doesn't he want me here anymore??

I don't want to go to Veirnan. I shouldn't have to go. What did I do to deserve getting sent away?? Was it about the pegasus?? I'll never ask again if he doesn't send me away. I won't. He can't just -- I don't want to go to Veirnan! I've been good! I've been fine!!

Maybe if I'm really good, he'll change his mind. Maybe if I really, really ask .... maybe ...

He has to change his mind, right?? He has to. I have to try. I don't have much time ...

Every time, they think they can hide from me. Hide from me in the alleys of my own city, cloak themselves in shadows and hope that I don't see they exist. Hope that I won't know what they're up to, be able to find out where they are and what it is they're planning.

And every time, every single time, I prove them wrong.

The question isn't what they were planning. Oh, it's easy to guess that, had I not been practically told by my informants, here and there. Assassination of the Jewel, of course. A dirty job. One you only go to the lowest of the low to seek interest in.

But these people never work alone. These people never take initiative. These rats skulk about and feed on the scraps until someone else offers them a reason to get involved. They may not like their lives, but they're not stupid enough to dream up a plot like this without reason. And the reason is almost always gold.

The question isn't what they were planning. The question is who put them up to it.

And I'll find out.

I always find out.

So many plans to be made. All this business about a ball has me utterly unsure of what to do with myself. Mother's been absolutely a wonder to watch the past few weeks. Truly, she seems alive in a way I haven't seen in a long while. I think planning all of this has put a bit of a spring back into her step.

There's nothing like a summer ball, though, I must say. Though I expect Chloe and I will be absolutely unable to escape the attention all night. So many people are like to corner us with congratulations! I don't know how I'll manage.

They're home! They just came in this morning, but they were so tired we decided to let them rest before we smothered them with hugs. But we more than made up for it later! I'm just...so happy, they're back and I can't even be upset with Peter for being so careless and getting lost anymore. I guess I never was...his traveling days are probably over, but I know if he ever goes away again he'll be more careful.

Peter joked about how he didn't even recognize me, but I wonder if there was some truth in it. It's been so long, after all...

They're finally home.

The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of being a fisherman. It'd be a lot more fun than dealing with drunks, going fishing is kinda like an adventure...hey, maybe if Diane ended up quitting her job we could go for it together! She'd jump at the chance, she's always loved sailing and being out at sea.

Wilhemina thinks it's definitely a good idea. Maybeth doesn't, though...not just because of the money, but because I guess if we were both away so much she'd be alone. I dunno what James would say...he might think I'm being silly, giving up a steady job, but who knows? Maybe spending time on the islands has changed his outlook a little.

I wonder if we're too late. Surely they've begun the ceremony, by now ... if we've missed it entirely, I fear the Queen may never forgive the slight. Mother says she will smooth the situation, whatever it may be, and a late entrance is more dramatic, to be sure, but ...

Mother says ...

... I wish she would tell me what happened. What he said. She must have spoken with him, caught up to him and discovered something. And it's been so convenient for her since then, knowing that we were so pressed for time. I thought we had an understanding. We were working together, were we not? And --

[a long pause]

Is that the wedding procession? The crowd seems too -- are they angry? [another pause] They are. They are. Why would they be upset? What has --

Mother, do you hear them? Something is not right.
