It is so awkward doing a ceremony of remembrance for someone who is not truly deceased. Lord Gebann resents me for it. He has not said it, but I can tell it is true. What could I have done? It is not as if I could tell Lady Martha no. I have to keep up appearances, and it would not be smart to lose her trust. I had no choice. Yet, is that truly a good enough excuse to lie to all those people?

Still, I should talk to him. I have been putting it off for far too long.

Happy Belated Birthday, my Lord. I apologize that I have not written sooner.

These past few weeks have been good, even if they've been a little weird. It's a nice change, and reminds me when we were both younger. Grandfather trusts her, so I should too. I just need to lighten up and put this all behind me once and for all.

Hey! I really need to get out of the castle for a while. I thought you might want to go get a drink with me. If you're busy or something that's fine too. Just thought I'd offer, and you paid last time, so I owe you.

Okay, everything seems just about ready! I agree with Friska, it all looks just wonderful...absolutely perfect. All we need now is the bride.

...Hmm. has anyone seen Chloe since earlier? I've been checking on everything as needed, but I haven't seen or heard from her in a while. I suppose she could still be getting ready, but I'd imagine she'd be ready by now.

Oh, I just love how all of this is set up! It's really looking like a great wedding. Just everything through the whole chapel is perfect, and I really like how you've all paid attention to all the little things.

I can't wait for this to start! I know I'm going to cry when it starts, but this is just going to be so beautiful, and it's not like these things happen everyday, and I'm really hoping that everything is going to go perfectly for you Chloe!

It's not going to be very much longer at all!

Ummmm ...!

I really don't want to bother you, and if this is a bad time I can definitely write later, or ... not! Whichever you think is best, but ...

Have you made a decision yet ...? I was just with my sister for tea this morning and she said that she hasn't heard from you at all, not a word, and I think she's getting pretty discouraged ...! I'm worried about her in the place she's in ... there are a lot of weird memories there for her, and I was really hoping this would work out ...

Could you let me know ...? Just so I can tell her so she knows. Or you could tell her. Or something!

She looks ...

She looks so pale and frail and ... tiny. It seems wrong for her to look tiny. She's always been so tall compared to the rest of us, but now ...

Her face looks like a skeleton.

The ship's healer thinks that she'll die. He doesn't say it but it's so obvious. What will we do if she does?

I'm sad I have to, but I'm leaving Cleraine. I've gained a patron who wants me to set up a shop for my jewelry in Razen. She's been... more than generous in her favour, and though I hate to leave behind everything I've gained I'm taking a lot with me. This city has been so kind to me, and I am so glad I could help build its temple.

I must be one of the only ones leaving the city for Razen who isn't out for a councillor's seat. I'll have a lot of company on the road, I think.

I've destroyed the trail leading back to Miss Vaelencia's glass shop. I'm not going back, even if this does fail. I will not keep degrading everything I've done since I came here. I will not.

Found a hulker flying Megami colors coming toward me. They tried to veer away, but the winds were with me. Their captain didn't even try to put up a fight after they spotted our flags. He assumed I was going to grab their gold, and be on my merry way.

When he presented me with the chest of their gains, I threw it over the side. I knocked his head in, and threw him in after it. A captain shouldn't go down without a fight. There wasn't very much food, but enough to keep my crew going for some time. I took their sails as spares, and their rope. I allowed three men to turn traitor, and come aboard. Everyone else received a mercifully quick execution before I turned their ship into a funeral pyre.

Promises are promises.

Cool, well, I give up. Definitely not my area. The high ranking priests used to excuse me from choir practice just because I made everyone else sing offkey just by being there.

I guess, for those of you not here -- this is a weird one. A song plays when we first walk in, just hangs in the air, like, and there's this sort of weird ... thing in the centre of the room. We think we get the gist. The thing is some sort of instrument, and that has something to do with the tune that plays, but the things is broken or not working or not assembled or something, I don't know.

Like I said, really not my area.

Anyone else for some pie?

That last puzzle, man...I still can't get over it, what happened to Faith and especially Jack. I sure am glad I decided not to give it a shot after all. That could've been me...so is this the worst this place has to offer, or is that only the beginning? Who knows exactly how long this'll go on, really.

...wonder what the gang back home would think if they were here. I mean, I'm glad they're not, this stuff's dangerous, but I can almost see Jason and Kate's reaction to it. They love adventure, especially Jason.

Rachelle~! You still have yet to meet Michael! He and I have plans to meet in the city tomorrow, want to come with me? And tomorrow's going to be such a beautiful day, too, just perfect to be outdoors! Hey, maybe we can even do some early Festival shopping while we're there!

That infuriating man. He knows very well what offense he has done, that he is still doing.

He wants me to know that I am being used, that I can be put aside, that he has that power over me. He is flaunting how unpredictable he is, how I can't ever begin to know his motivations, how I do not understand him.

I hate him. I hate his control over me. I hate that I do not want him to leave.

... There. That is enough.


I have work to do.

Filly dear. My apologies for interrupting your visit, but I am afraid this business is rather urgent, and I would like to know your thoughts on the matter.

Um, my apologies, but I only just received this news today. About Lord Stephan's passing. I knew he had been ill, but the news still came as a shock. I thought this would be the best way to extend my and Matthias' condolences to everyone.

Well ...

I don't recognize it ... exactly. Whatever this instrument is, I think it's fallen out of favour while it's been down here. I doubt anyone alive knows just how it works, or has ever seen once before ...

But ...

Back home, we have something like it. It's very old, and it's called an amhran. They don't play it in Taln and Tarra and Tiranoe, anymore, but some old estates in the forests still have them ... mine did. It was old and rickety, but I taught myself how to play it. Not well, but ... enough.

[Filter: Druce]

Ah ... I don't think that we're going to be able to do much work on our lessons, this week. I think that I'm going to be needed for this puzzle ...

You don't mind?

Oy, you know, Keagan's birthday is tomorrow.

I was thinking we oughta put something together for him. Don't have to be anything too big, but old man deserves a bit of a party. I'd offer to help out with it, but, well, I don't think I oughta be moving too much or Nessa's gonna get right fussy with me.

Lissandra has ... given me some insight on what's going on.

Are you feeling up to talking about it? I believe she's keeping Linnell under control, for the time being, so we have a bit to speak to each other.
