Well, Chloe, we're happily on our way. Oh, poor Emily cried her very hardest and begged us to stay despite Lady Eriena's best efforts, but I think we somehow managed to reassure her that we wouldn't be gone forever. And now we're on the road!

I hope the roads have improved since Lord Hasten's journey. I'd hate to be bogged down when my sister's wedding awaits. And we've such a very long way to go.

What can anybody tell me about all these ghost rumors? Out of Korin? I have to make a business tip to the East, and everyone says I ought to call it off for the sake of my health. What's going on? I heard about hauntings but nobody will tell me any details. I don't want to risk going. Not if things are that bad.

And I don't want to hear it's not true. I don't believe it's true. But I want to know what people are saying since nobody I know has anything. Just rumors. And hearsay. I need to know more than that.

I hope everybody's getting ready for Sunday!! I asked some of the guards to come with us, and they're all prepared for us to spend the whole day out!! I thought maybe we could go for a ride a day or two before the picnic, to find someplace really perfect to have it ... I could go by myself, today, if nobody else wants to go! I'd bring a guard so Papa wouldn't worry, but you'd have to do my work for me, Lian ~

I can't wait!! I've made so many plans for things we can do and talk about and everything. It's going to be perfect!! We need to do this more often.

You know, I'm thinking we should probably avoid my place for a while. I just ain't comfortable having you there again just yet, you get? Ain't anything against you, not really. Just all me, you know?

But maybe I figure I oughta give you a chance to make it up to me. Just figure we can go out one of these days, see where it takes us. What do you say?

Celeste? I didn't want to bother you when you've ... er, well, you've seemed kind of distant, for a while now. Are you doing all right?

I had a question I wanted to ask you, but I thought I ought to ... well, just make sure there's nothing I can help with first. I know when this was happening to me, I didn't know what to make of it, and I thought, well ... well, you've probably talked to Lawrence about it already, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't try. My question can wait, for that much.

A strange ugly little boy flew in from the west today on a scrawny little dragon. He looked like hell and high water and he was blabbering that he needed to see the Lord of Noye. Didn't want to believe that Bea was it, at first, but he got convinced soon enough and said he had something to tell her, her and only her.

She sent everyone out. All her advisors and commands and guards, even me. It's been almost an hour now, they've been in there. No one will even let me close enough to the doors to listen in. That little brat could be an assassin, and he's in there with her, and ...

What's taking so long? What could a little shit like that have to say to Bea?!

Everything is so much more ... simple, here.

I never was one to chafe under the rules of society and the all that they brought. "Urbane," I've been called, and well I know it. I've taken quite naturally to that world. I'd go as far to say that I'm known for it.

Perhaps that's why I've always resisted admitting that I ... I enjoy this. The men under my command, the simplicity and directness of it. Being so far from everything, all the complications of life left behind. It's a wilder, harsher world, and sometimes it involves blood and death, but never rarely never ... never without good cause behind it.

It's not that I wish I could do this all of the time. When I go back to Nallen, I'll be grateful baths and tea and ... and my wife, of course. My family and my wife are ... well missed. But for now ...

Problems don't actually vanish when you don't have to think of them, perhaps ... but it is nice to just not think of them for a blessed moment.

I think this sojourn has left Patrick with a far better picture of what it's usually like than his last. He's almost begun to completely let go and enjoy himself.

This is really it for him, isn't it. Him getting through winter alive didn't mean anything after all...false hope, that's what it was. I guess it really is his time soon, huh, Dragons? You've let him hold on for as long as he did, after all.

Maybe it was silly of me to compare Uncle Stephan to Grandpa. I mean, Grandpa's a special case, you don't see a lot of people over ninety walking around, right? But still...it would've been nice if Uncle Stephan could've been so lucky.

Well...the picnic will be a nice distraction. Maybe this is what I need to get my mind off of...well, everything.

But how much longer can you go on using Aelvir as an excuse, Stephanie? Are you ever going to talk to Symeon? You know very well Lian might be right about

No, I shouldn't be thinking about that. This Sunday's going to be wonderful, I don't want to spoil everyone's good time by moping about everything. It'll be a shame Symeon can't come, but...I suppose it's for the best, he does need to stay with Lancel.
