Oh, what do we do?!

I -- I can hardly believe this, but Reeve would know, wouldn't he? I -- oh, Edalene! What do we do about Edalene? What can we do? I just don't know.

And Keslene doesn't understand any of this. I had her all excited for a wedding, and she had her dress, and now I have to try and explain that there isn't a wedding and -- oh, but this isn't your responsibility, you don't need to hear about this, she's my daughter and I'll take care of it.

Edalene, she's what's most important.

Dragons, but I hate this.

She is still out there. Dragons only know what she is doing, where she is, what she plans. I never liked to leave business unfinished, never. You can't say when it will return and punish you for the oversight. And Elthea ...

A bigger oversight than most.

But there is nothing I can do. Nothing. She is gone, and all my searching will not bring her back. She is a single tree in a great forest and I have a life awaiting me.

[a pause]

I will need to take to Felicia's bed as frequently as possible until she is with child, again. Perhaps, this time, I will be able to make myself a son.

I wish

I am sorry I gave no warning, but we are coming up on Lireth, now. I should arrive within the hour. I expect servants assembled to take our horses and things, and I'd like a bath drawn for myself. It's been hot and sticky on the road, and I'm covered in dust.

All right, as requested.

I've been watching Jason's schedule for the past week or so, and I believe I've come up with a fairly ideal time to go have a friendly chat with him about our Lydia. Now, I know you're very enthusiastic to see how this turns out, and you know I'll inform you the moment I'm finished.

I'm going to ask him to tea tomorrow afternoon. Just a friendly chat with everyone's favorite court socialite, it'll hardly look so strange. Lydia might think it odd, but, well, we can reassure her it's just a bit of friendly concern, can't we? After all, that is at the root of it.

But yes, there you have it. Tomorrow, I imagine at around 2 or so. I trust you need no reminding it's to be a private affair.

We'll be heading out within the next few days. I imagine it'll take us a week to get back, if we push. The weather's been nice enough.

I can ... If you'd like, Symeon, I can tell you here what Lord Arthur had to say about the situation. He wasn't exactly forthcoming, but he was honest, and it's all entirely unpleasant. He hasn't been sharing the details, however, so the girl who'll be coming back with me thinks she's being punished for something. All in all, that ... might be kinder than the stories he's shared with me.

When you have a moment.

Lizzie. Lizzie, I have a favor to ask, and I think you already know what it is.

Now, I know you're appalled at me, and that's perfectly fair. You quite likely have every reason to be, considering the situation. But I need you to get me some spare time with Emery. I don't care what lies you have to tell, what you have to make up, I don't even care how terrible you have to make me look. I need to get out of this house.

I'd take care of the matter myself, but I can't get away from this. It's more overbearing than it ever has been. I couldn't sneak away unnoticed if I was invisible.

Please, Lizzie, and I'll never bother you again.

He ... really doesn't look very good anymore, does he?? I didn't think it would get this bad, but ... but I guess he never was going to get any better after all, huh??

I guess I kind of thought Uncle Stephan would always be around ...

Ah. Hello.

I hate to -- I know you're probably busy. But I ... was curious as to whether you'd spoken to Lauren at all. I know both of you have been very busy with matters here, and justifiably so, so please, if you've been too busy to talk with her, simply tell me to be on my way and away I'll go.

I just -- yes. If you would let me know, or if you haven't, if you would let me know when you have? I'm aware it's not exactly ... important, right now. And no worries, of course. I have ... other things I need to be working on, as well.

Ummmmmm, so, about those questions we used to ask on Wednesdays!

I asked a month ago if anybody really wanted to start doing them again, and some people said they did ... but not really all that many. But the people who did, I think they really want to get to know some of the people here better and stuff, and, ummmmm, I don't know, so I just thought maybe we could do it like this:

If anybody thinks of a question, even if it's not a Wednesday, just write it down! And say that it's a question for everybody, it's a magic journal question. Say it like that ♥! And then all those people who wished that we still did questions, you all write and answer! Ummm, but I think the really important thing is that if you do that, you have to be trying to meet people and get to know people, not just answering for the sake of answering ♥!

How does that sound to everybody? I'm sure some people will do it, and the people who don't want to don't have to feel bad about it ♥! Because it's okay not to answer, too.

Oh, I'm so happy for Maire and Destin! Maire looks so happy too. I'm sure this pregnancy will go better than the last one, since it's the second and Maire will have experience now ... Oh, I'll have to make something for the new baby, I know I'll have months, but I don't know how much time I'll have free ...

I hope Violet won't get jealous. Will she understand enough to get jealous ...? I'll have to mention it to Maire ...
