She doesn't seem to want to talk much about Mansoure...is it really so awful for her there? To be alone except for the servants? Poor Mother...and I can't exactly invite her to stay at Lireth forever, Mansoure can't be left without a ruler. Dragons, how silly of me to even think such a thing, right?

She's so happy here, happier than I ever remember her being since Father passed away, but she'll have to go back soon...

I just wish there were something more I could do for her!

...they're right. We have good memories of Jeff, he'll always live on in our hearts and nothing can take that away. Even if we can never see or talk to him again, he's still with us. Just like Grandma.

Goodbye, Jeff. For the last time, goodbye. I love you.

Hey! So how're things by you? Ever figure out where those seeds disappeared to?

Also, have you been writing to Mom? She claims she hasn't heard from you in a while, unless she got a letter from you and never got around to reading it...

I wonder, Nicolas, does this announcement of your betrothal to Lady Anita mean that this visit is nearing its end?

Have you heard it going around? Daddy was boasting about it just this morning.

Forbes ... he's been asking questions. I think he's finally realizing that he's being shut out of Lucre society. "Finally," Daddy was saying. "I can't believe I ever thought that man might be suitable as a Guardian, he's criminally dense." When he told me about it directly, he was so gentle and sweet. It was like he was trying to offer me a gift ...

This is awful, Destin. It's so not fair. He didn't do anything to deserve this. It was me, it was all me. If anyone deserves to be shut out, it's me.

I know you're going to say that there was no other way. ... you're right, you are. If not for this, I'd probably be picking out my bridesmaids right now. Or be already married. But I can't help but feel sick to my tummy.

I just want this to all be over soon. Why doesn't he just leave? Then we wouldn't have to hear about it, and we could put it all behind us ...

Why won't she tell me anything?

I think ...

I think she's preparing for something. Some sort of -- of attack. She's fortifying the harbour and is always walking the walls and I've seen a bunch of trainees I've never seen before in the yard.

But I ask her, and she won't tell me. She's afraid of something, that skinny boy on his skinny dragon from Varise told her something, and, and she's shutting me out of it.

Does she think she's protecting me? I've seen more of war than she has. Where does she think I got this stump!?

Lirit! Lirit, are you reading this? You haven't reported in to me all week. I need you to tell me what's going on, do you hear me?

Edalene, oh, Edalene. You poor sweet thing. What did you ever do to deserve this sort of heartbreak? I really can't even imagine.

No one wants to really talk about it, yet, but we all know everyone is quietly mobilizing their little armies. Razen goes on for better or worse.

It'll be Ethne for the House Seat. That's just foregone. And ... and good for her. She'll sit it better than I ever did, I'm sure of it. If I had have known that she'd wanted it so badly, I'd never have claimed it for myself.

But what about me?

I can't take my family away from Razen. Erael has enough problems with me without me dragging him away from his family and his friends. And Keslene ... Razen is her home. She's never known anywhere else. She's only seen Meatha ... oh, twice? And I'd be shocked if she remembered it.

... but, well.

All of this has made me realize something -- I am not suited to this life! I'm just ... I'm not! I like it when it's simple and easy, but ... but all the games, all the deceit. It was so easy for the majority of the Council to be bought with promises from Reeve. Should I blame them for that? No, that's just the way the game is played.

I'm not sure it's the game for me, though.

But, Edalene ...

Oh, my poor little Jewel. She needs people here who she can damn well trust. If I were to campaign for an independant seat, I'm sure she'd give it to me. And someone like me, that's what my little cousin needs to have. People who love her for who she is. If I don't run, who else will take that seat? Someone else with a low price who'll sell her out?

I just don't know. I'll have to decide soon, too. I'd like to take all the time in the world to really weigh my options, but as soon as the Queen emerges from her self-imposed exile, things will start happening fast. They'll need to. Atsiria has no ruling council. There's only so long we can sustain this ...

[Filter: Ethne, in Atsirian]

I was in to see our cousin, today.

I can't wait to leave Rechesa! It was getting really boring, and no one was buying stuff anymore, and no one was really buying anything anymore when they heard about the girl! It's been ages since we were in Atsiria too! I need to practice my Atsirian!

Leave me alone.

[Filter: Ian]

We -- we should dismiss Sir Gillen from service. I don't like him. He never seems to be where he's supposed to be, and he always speaks disrespectfully. Or -- or if we can't dismiss him, perhaps we could tell Father we were disappointed with his service, and put him on a boat for Aeda. He's not even a knight, just a solider.

I -- I don't like him, brother.

I know that you're very, very busy gloating over how smart you turned out to be, but, ah, I find myself in need of an evening out~ One of the men in my service has been nothing but a headache, lately. I need to clear him from my system.

Can I rely on you, Sir Philip~?

I ... I think ...

I think he might actually be responding. It's ... it's difficult to tell whether it's actually happening, or if it's my own wishful thinking. So soon, it's hard to ... to really document or chart or ...

But he seems ... he has more colour. He's always been so ghostly pale, and I swear, there's pink in his cheeks.

If this works ... if I can save him ...


[Filter: Lady Meghan]

I need to apologize, again, for what a terrible host I've been. Soon, I promise you. Soon, you'll have the welcome that you deserve to have. I promise. It's just ... this patient I have right now, he takes up a great deal of my time, and ...

I do so hope my daughters, my ward, and my ... my ... Edeyn, haha, have made you feel welcome in my absence?
