And how are my two favourite ladies this fine day? I was thinking that it really has been too long since we went out and saw the sights. Now, of course, I know times have been difficult of late for the both of you. But I am sure that they will get better, absolutely, positively sure! And so I think it would be a terrible waste to stay cooped inside all day.

Who's with me?

Sister Sabilla is apparently pleased enough with my training to be making hints that I am ready to begin lessons in other areas needed for all clergy members. Particularly, in the art of healing. I told her that I do have rudimentary knowledge of staves but it seems as though the Dark Church feels that more traditional methods are superior, as they do not rely on an exhaustible source.

There are times when this all reminds me of hom being young again and studying with my tutors. I have always been thirsty for knowledge. Except now there are times when I wonder if it is taking me away from Jayden too much. I miss him terribly during the day, though I know he is well cared for here.

There is never enough time in the world for everything.

Hey, so, Four Eyes!

I just got a missive from my father. He says he's going to make the trip out of town to see the vineyard. He wants to see "how production is going." As if he can't trust us to do it, ourselves. No, this are precious Diarnay grapes, they must be perfect!

So I guess you get to play hostess. Hurray.

I wish everyone would just stop talking about it all. There's not such thing as ghosts. You don't need to be afraid of dead people, just the living ones.

Doll's birthday is coming up. It's not for another month and a bit but I've been thinking about it already. She's going to be two. I should get her some really nice dresses.

Well ... this is an unexpected relief.

It really looks as if Sir Ian knows what he's talking about. He was here with Inara and I and Clarissa, today, and they hit it off, talking about her vision and his plans. It sounds like they're going to be able to do exactly what she wants for the addition.

... I'm glad. Her home is far too small for a young child as it is.

One less thing to worry about, then. We'll still need volunteers to actually build it, and somehow we'll need to get ahead of supplies, but ...

Everywhere I go is death. Everywhere I go is murder. That can't be a message to any of us, can it? Is it just a coincidence? Seeing it all I'm reminded of is Leslie. "Who's next?" If this was about me, it'd be someone I know, not just some random girl. I know I didn't know her. I wouldn't forget her face. I won't forget her face now, that's for sure.

It's nothing, and I'm just reading too much into this.

I guess Lorcan's still angry at me ...

I deserve it, I bet ...! He was right, I could have ruined his family by helping Lady Benedette get away like I did ... it would have been all my fault. He's right about that, I know that he is.

But I can't think of what I would have done differently ...! Even though she came back in the end, she's my friend and she asked me for help. I couldn't have told her no, or turned her in. What sort of person would I have been for that?

No matter what I did, I did something wrong ...

... I just wish he'd understand ...! Some people would say he was just as bad. We weren't married when I was pregnant with Bertie, and I'm the lowest of lowborn. He married me for love, no matter what our stations ... how can he not see that this is the same, in a way? Lady Benedette has to make her own choices ...

I ... I'm glad she came back, though. It isn't that anybody dislikes me here. Lorcan's family are especially really nice to me. But ... she's my only friend here, and with Isllyn having been so distant these years, since Noland left ...

I really need a friend.

Um, hello! Benedette has a message for you that she wanted me to give.

It always seems a bit empty here, when a patrol is out. Especially when Thomas is out there with it, and Patrick too.

I do pray that everything will go well. The last thing Patrick needs is anything like what happened before. I would like to think that the Dragons would not be so cruel ... except then I remember everything else they have done.

I'm really excited for the celebration tomorrow, it sounds like it's going to be very fun. I wonder if it's really different from other holidays for countries, especially Unification Day since that's the one I know best of course.

I really am glad that we're in such a nice place to celebrate it in!

My, this place has become so lively these past days. It almost feels like being caught in a whirlwind, especially when the children around~ It does the heart good to see cousins playing together so nicely though.

But as nice as it is to see family, I cannot help but miss those left behind. [Old Kilian]Oh my love, I do so wish you could be here.

This arrangement suits me very well. Of course, if the verdict is not what the Prince desires, everything might fall apart after all. And so I must do what I can ... I must do all that I can.

Wow. Children.

I really didn't even think about that all that much, until now. I don't know why, actually, since clearly everyone else was thinking about it. I guess I'm just strange.

I'm really glad we both agreed about that though. I really don't feel ready for kids yet.

There are some really cute summer dresses getting made at my mother's store these days. Summer really is the best time because you get to be bright and colourful and flashy! I definitely think it's one of the better clothing seasons. Though spring is good too. And autumn.

Tomorrow sounds as if it's going to be just awful.

I hope no one is offended if I just ... stay in my room, all day. Do you think they would be? I could say that I have a cold, and no one would wonder at me not being there to attend to Lauren. I think I heard that she was going out with Lady Tabea and Lady Mairenn tomorrow, anyway ...

Why is the only way people now how to celebrate by being loud and obnoxious? Can't they be courteous of people who enjoy peace and quiet?

Unfortunately those responses were of little help. Too many answers were from noblemen who were blessed with an easy answer to this problem.

But there was that one which gave me hope. Perhaps I should, as always, leave this matter in the hands of the Dragons. They always know which course is best.

I don't believe it. I won't believe it.

Reeve is a liar and Matthew would never hurt me. That's what matters, and that's what I keep seeing. Matthew has never given me any reason, any, not to trust him, and Reeve ...

I will fix this. I will fix it, because I know that Matthew isn't any of these things that people say he is.

[Filter: Joseph, in Atsirian]

I've heard the things that you've said. About Matthew, and how he loves me, and how he'd never hurt me. I -- thank you.

That must be ... hard for you.

I'm being such a little girl.

He barely even seems to notice I'm here. The Lion of Lireth certainly has more important things to worry about than his brother's odd little wife-to-be, doesn't he? He's been away from Lireth for years.

And I'm still trying to hide away from him. Ooh, maybe if I'm good and invisible, he won't bloody well notice me.

I hate this. This isn't me. I hate that he can do this to me.

Thank Dragons we're headed to Eblar after the wedding. Being a courtier's wife is going to be simple, after spending all this time in the bloody sodding North.

Everything's going according to plan, so far.

I just spent three hours with the Queen, comforting her and planning how we'll attempt to bring the Council to "our" side. This part ... this part is easy for me. It's what I'm good at, after all, what I was always good at. This sort of social politicking was always my strong point. I'm convinced I can do just enough to look the hero, without actually saving Lord Matthew's hide.

I feel ... better.

Working myself up to this, that was the hard part. But now that I'm here ... well, it's just a thing that was done. A thing that needed to be done. And now I'm onto the easy bits.

It's occurred to me that you can campaign against Matthew with impunity, if we wish to go down that route. You couldn't possibly make the Queen hate you more than you already do, and I could express my distaste of my horrible, scheming sister to Edalene for her approval.

Strange to think that a girl who was once fostered by us will soon be our liege lady. Well, she does deserve the station. I am not sure if Nicolas could have picked a sweeter girl. But there are a good number of complications that could come up.

What if the wedding is before Cerise gives birth? If it was, it would almost certainly be close to the time she is to give birth. Though, I doubt a wedding could be put together so quickly. Though, traveling with a child, is, I am told, quite an arduous task! I did not think we would be put into this position quite so soon.

Well, to the future Lady of the West. Hopefully she will not have to wait so long for children of her own!

There is a possibility that I am being overprotective, but does Celeste seem a little ... distracted to you?

My, my. Your timing is just impeccable, isn't it, Nicolas? All this time Lady Anita has been with you, and now you make your proposal. She can hardly be bothered to contain her delight. Look at you, endeavouring to fulfil her every romantic fantasy. She thinks you are the perfect gentleman, her knight, her saviour. We both know what a lie that is.
