My Lord, I had wondered ...

Had you given any thought as to when we might depart for the wedding? I know you have had much on your mind, but that there are so few plans as yet concerns me. If you are too busy, I would be glad to make the arrangements myself, if that is your wish.

I must admit, with affairs in the city such as they have been, I am looking forward to the opportunity to be away from it for a time. There is so little I can do, after all, save worry over how it troubles my Lord so.

It should be more interesting than this.

What fun is it when everyone reacts the way you expect? I want something new. Something interesting. Something I can work with. Is that so much to ask?

[Filter: Public, in Trade]

After all that messy business, I have to ask. Are there any lingering protests when I say that maybe, just maybe, Rechesa's lost its savor~?

There's nothing. I should have known Ruseia would be too careful as to allow anyone in our little group as to any hints of what might be going on both inside and outside these castle walls. There must be something that we are missing. I need someone who isn't involved, that no one would have a reason to guard their tongue around. Perhaps it is past time I paid a visit to that priest, though it has been some time since I have seen him writing. Before I saw him as a threat, someone who could easily ruin everything I wanted to work for, but I might not have another choice. It is something to think about, though I need to have a way out of this dreaded room first.

I cannot help but wonder what kind of exciting adventures I have been missing whilst I've been laid up in my room feeling under the weather, and my dearest Dagda has been up long before I awake and does not return until after I have finally dozed off again.

I am, however, feeling much better as of late, so perhaps I can be out among the living again soon enough. Of course that would be up to Miss Lyonesse, as I would hate to risk anyone else catching my ailments if I am not fully recovered to her standards.

I know I said I wanted Mother to spend more time with us, but I didn't want her to lose her job. I know it isn't my fault but I still wished for it and I still feel guilty. I can tell Mother is really upset too. She said it was the hardest vote she ever had to cast and she wishes she could take it all back and do it again, but it's too late. Then after all of that there still isn't going to be a wedding and we're still not going to have a King and it's not fair. Lord Matthew was nice. I liked him. He would have been a good King.

Why can I introduce myself to everyone but her? There's no excuse for it, now. Now I'm just avoiding it. I don't even know why. I just have this feeling. Ugh, that doesn't even make sense. It just. Yeah. Wow, me.

She's friends with Matty, I can just make some excuse to sit at her spice cart all day. Hope. That's her name. She'll show up eventually, and then I can just -- find out for sure if this is even going anywhere. It's like I've built this whole stupid thing up in my head to mean something, when it probably doesn't at all. It's probably just a big dumb coincidence and I'm going to feel really stupid walking up to this poor girl and saying something embarrassing like, hey, hello, I've been practically stalking you for months now because you remind me of me. And of my sisters. And my absolute bastard of a deadbeat dad. Yeah. That'll go over really well, I'm sure.

I'm just so desperate for answers, that's all. I'm just too stubborn to give up. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

He died in that storm. I know he did. I don't know why I even care, anymore.

I would be curious to consult a history book, and count just how many times such a thing has happened in this country's long history. Not very many, I'm sure.

Once the dust settles, Melyndra will seize this opportunity. An entire regime change overnight, and the Queen too distraught to organize any of it. I might even go so far as to call it an ideal situation for the Church of the Goddesses. Someone must rise to fill the void of power the Prince's disbarment will cause.

It should have been years before the Council ever came within her reach. And now ...

Dragons. Just like that, overnight. Unbelievable.

It's so strange to think that Eamonn is leaving us so soon! It's even stranger to think of him as Eamonn at all! I do wish he could stay longer ... can you imagine how many wonderful stories he must have, after all of this time?? I'd so love to hear more of them!! But I know, I know, he's anxious to be going, and it wouldn't be fair of us to keep him if he doesn't want to stay.

I just feel like we've hardly gotten to know him, the actual him, and now he's saying good-bye! It's so sad!!

I hope his sendoff party is as big and wonderful and grand as he deserves!

The hell are you all looking for, anyway? I ain't been nosing in cause I figured you'd tell us if it was important, but you're getting me curious, like it or not. You gonna tell me what's up, or do I got to wait like everyone else?

This don't got to do with your magic thing, does it?

Do you want to come into the city today, Nessa? I wanted to try drawing a pegasus, again. I'm still not happy with my last attempt ... there's just too many little things off about it.

The sky is clear and it's almost mild out ... it looks like a good day for it.

I'd like to see you there ...

I just got a letter from my mother. Apparently they got themselves into a bit of debt trying to organize a bigger holiday festival this year, and she's wondering if there's any way I can fix this for her.

This is the first letter I've gotten from my mother in two years. She didn't even put "I love you" anywhere in it. It's like a letter you'd get from a merchant telling you that you owe him something.

Guess where this letter's going? First right answer will get a free beer the next time they're in Rayla.

There are some pieces of information that can't be ignored. Someone down the chain has taken the bait from this man's report... Well, it's good that they're still looking. I do expect a messy end to come of this one.

It... it can't be true. I didn't think... Dragons.

If that is what this is all about, and it's being spread across all of Lucre... Dragons, how long has this been spread?

... since it happened, of course.

They don't know if it's true that I ruined Elizabeth, but... no one who hears that it's possible would want to take that chance. And by now, the rumours are so deeply entrenched... If one person in the Lysel household has been spreading it around, it would even hold weight. It must be weighted if it's been this strong for so long...

Hahaha... I'm ruined. Dragons above, I can't even deny these rumours to get past this. As soon as I would speak out, it would give Lucius cause to speak publicly. And Elizabeth didn't even want it to happen, and that's not simply a dismissal... That would be a criminal charge.

Dragons, help me, I don't even know how long I have until I'm approached about this. The well is so poisoned by now that it couldn't have escaped notice from the higher authorities.

I don't know what to do.

She's a strange girl, there's no mistake about that. So prickly and oversensitive. Mn, and her reactions are unpredictable, for that. I never do seem to know how she'll respond to something. Yesterday's rules never seem to apply to today.

... hm, no, this wall isn't right at all. I thought I was onto something, but ...

Aine ... Aine was never that way. For all her quietness, there was an openness in her, too. A joy and a love for love. Aine was warm, which no one who barely knew her ever believed, and no one who knew her well would ever doubt. For her twin to be so ... cold ...

Ah, now, this looks more like what the map shows ... if I'm looking at it right. Hm, but then, this wall ...

It's not as if I'm speaking poorly of the girl, of course. She's a good child. And I can't help the connection between us. I want to know her, and I want her to know me, and for us to know Aine more through one another. But sometimes, it seems as though she wants to push me out ... and then others, like she fears I am pushing her out.

Sometimes, it's such a tightrope walk ...

Oh, posh, this is so frustrating! Just why doesn't this match? It seems like only a quarter of this makes sense, and the rest.

-- ah! Now, just a moment! Could it be ...

[Filter: My Caravan]

Well, they finally decided to release me just now. Looks like they've made up their mind that we didn't do it.

Took them bloody long enough.

I can't say this clear enough: I want to show this city our backsides. Profit was already drying up, we're out of good wares that the displaced Norey Court wants to buy, and now, with this ... I want to put as much distance between us and Rechesa as possible.

We leave on the 28th, not a day later. You all know your jobs, let's hop to it and pack up in record time. Any business that you've got here ... finish it up.
