Are you sure that I'm not allowed to redraw for the Festival exchange?

I know I keep asking, but -- Dragons, come on! Can't there just be one little exception? I could switch with one of yours! I wouldn't mind!

I think people are noticing me in the libraries.

I don't know what to think of it. They never ask questions, and that's good, but ... there's something about the looks. They've never looked at me like that before. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, or if I've just been here too much ...

A girl asked me if I was doing research, once. Maybe that's it. I didn't know what to tell her, so I just said no. She seemed surprised by that. She didn't ask anything else, so I thought that was that, but I haven't seen her again either.

I think I should take a break for awhile, but I don't want to. I don't know where else I could find any answers. I don't want to just do nothing, just because of a few looks. But I have a really bad feeling.

I hate this.

It has been so long since I have ridden like this, I had nearly forgotten what it was like! Too long, far too long, they are right. They will not say so openly, but I see them smiling beneath their hands when they think I am not looking! Hmph. I can still ride with the best of them, I think I have proven that!

Though I wish we were not in such a hurry. Once I am in Razen, well -- if all goes as planned, when will I ever have this chance again? I will be so busy sitting this chair for the Queen and serving the Holy Three however I can, there. They all tease me, but I know they are impressed. Perhaps they will stay with me in Razen, for a time? I have already interrupted their plans so badly, why not a little more, hm? Hah! They will agree to it, I know they will. And they will help Karlesta Faedya and I, too, yes.

I have good news for you, Destra! We make good time across the desert, as I'd hoped. We will rest the horses in Ilserna in three days' time, then onward to Razen! It should not be more than another week past Ilserna, and so you can see, we will arrive well before Audreyna.

It's not my fault!!

Surely no one is believing any of those awful things he's saying. No one possibly could. Everyone knows it was all him being awful, and if anyone else ever says otherwise, then I'll just -- just -- set Josiah on them! Josiah and Amelie and William, too, chair or no, he's still my brother and he has a duty!!

No one believes that nonsense.

I wish he would just leave. I knew this was all a terrible idea. Why did I ever agree to it?! Why did he ... why was he so wonderful and thoughtful and gallant, at first, if he was just going to --?!

Ooh, this is so unfair!

Ah, now, wait!

I was watching you whilst I fed my bride stawberries on Saturday, whilst we all watched the fencing tournament and cheered on our favourites, and what I saw there has had the wheels in my head spinning ever since.

It hit me, just now, oh, Eli, my dear, I understand, finally, why you've been so very unliveable of late!

It's flattering, truly.

Oh, I can't believe I almost forgot to write her ... I hope she won't be too upset with me for waiting so long to write ...

It'll be nice ... to speak with someone who was Matthew's friend ... I'm really looking forward to it.

[Filter: Karlesta]

Hello there~~

I hope this isn't too short of a notice. I had meant to write sooner, but well ... things happened, as I'm sure you're very familiar with.

I was wondering if you were still up for meeting for dinner and tea at the end of the month.

Ah ... Lila ... have you heard news of what the border patrol have been saying ...?

It seems that these Korin refugees are only ever increasing ... ah ... with all of these nobles about and such important people for us to look after, it seems dangerous for such desperate people to keep coming into the city ... ah ... I don't know what we're to do ... perhaps I should speak to Lord Hasten ... as busy as I know he must be ...

Ah ... what a beautiful ceremony it all was ... and it would be lovely to spend our Festival here, as well. As long as they don't mind too terribly that we have decided to stay for such a length of time. I am certain that they have matters to attend to, after all, without so many guests getting in their way, hm ...

[Filter: Public, in Trade]

Hm ... Lireth is a lovely place indeed. I don't think I've been able to actually get a good look around town since we've arrived.

Constance, my love, would you care to accompany me through the city? If you're able, that is.

Ooh ... Mal has been throwing a fit, lately ...!

She's been looking for her daddy everywhere ... I keep telling her that you'll be right back, Lord Kray ... but she won't listen at all ...! I don't know what to do with her ... I can distract her for a little while, but then she just starts it all over again. I don't think I've ever seen her like this ... she's never given any of us any trouble, before ...

I wish I were good at drawing, then I could draw a picture of you for her, or if she could read, then she would just be able to read your writing, but ohh ...

Maybe she'll stop soon ... hopefully ...

You're okay, aren't you Lord Kray?

Well then, there's no use in hanging around here and wasting my time. I've got to do something with myself or I'll end up going crazy.

Hanalan it is, then. Haven't been home in a while ... as long as she doesn't make me stay, it'll be fine. Not like she could make me, anyway.

So it looks like I'm heading towards Hanalan, now. Elliot, didn't you say you were staying there? You're still there, aren't you?

I have to say, in the midst of this, where is Rayla?

Oh, yes, yes, I read all about the burning of Gathre. Terribly unfortunate news, absolutely. But Gathre isn't the only house in Korin, and certainly not the only place suffering under these rebels of Forna's. Why, the common people on my own lands are voicing their concerns daily! I've had letters from soldiers at my borders warning me of brigands prowling the mountains! Of course, I've managed to deal with the ones that have roamed all the way up here, since we get so few here at the crown of the world. Odd, that, considering how much they speak of wanting to slay me.

But of course, this isn't about me. There's that lovely woman from Lahn writing so often about the troubles on her own lands, and the man from Fryda, and those only two of the Houses in Korin! The reports are growing in number by the day, largely targeting the common people ....

So, I must ask, where is Rayla? Surely Gathre is not so important compared to the poor and starving commoners streaming out of the country daily because they're afraid of the rebels and these ghost rumors that the Forna pretenders have perpetrated. Were I allied with Rayla, I would certainly be wondering about the value of that alliance.

Guess I just gotta get this over with before Amalea does it for me. Better than being bugged again about not keeping her updated. Ugh.

... it's really final isn't it? We're really doing it. Just a month away.

Hey! Just wanted to let you know Amalea and I finally decided. If your sister's still interested we'd love for her to watch my place while we're away.

I wish we could have star showers all the time cuz it was so much fun before and so romantic and Ian and Clarissa looked so cute together and Clarissa keeps telling me how much fun she had and thanking me for convincing her to go and I wanna do it again!!! I told you it was a good idea Anton but you didn't believe me and Clarissa and Ian are going to fall in love and be happy forever because they watched it together just like everyone was talking about!

There should be one just like it every weekend cuz I didn't get to see it cuz Anton's a big jerk and let me fall asleep and I didn't see any of it at all and he shoulda woke me up but he didn't cuz he said he didn't want to cuz I was sleeping and I'd be mad if he woke me up but I wouldn't be cuz it'd be to see the star shower and now I'm mad he didn't wake me up!! But even though I didn't see it it was still fun!

Every single morning I wake up and think that I need to hurry and get my chores done so I can help clean up the rest of the temple for the pilgrimage.

And then I wake up a little more, and realize I'm at home ....

I'm kind of sad, actually. I know the pilgrimage is always so busy and I always complain about it when it's happening, but, well. It makes me feel like I'm really doing something important. Seeing people come through the temple, even if we don't get as many as the mainland, it really feels like I've made a difference. Some of those people have never even been to Megam before! It really makes me feel like I'm doing the Dragons' work.

I probably shouldn't be so ... like this. We're looking after Ash, still, and Angela has been talking about going Festival shopping, but all I can ever think is that I should be back at the temple helping everyone get ready ...

William keeps saying really mean things about Mother, and talking about how much better he is than her, and how he won't make the same mistakes she did. He shouldn't be doing that. She's still our Mother. I don't care why he's doing it, he shouldn't be.

There are plenty of opportunities here, that's true enough.

I'll have to evaluate who could be an option. And I'm going to have a couple of messes to clean up at this rate. Between that spy and the guard, that's enough trouble on its own. Ervalie could be an option, as well. And, of course, I need to do my best to campaign for any members of the military who are more ... pliable than Gideon. And that's just the start of this.

But first ....

The more I look at a few of these candidates, the more worried I become. I'd forgotten just how many competitors I had in the military. Some of these names didn't even come up when I had my own in. Actually, I doubt one in every five did. The older guard died off, and some of the younger ones really are rising stars like I was... Not that it hasn't kept some of the older ones from contending.

It really is a bit, well, odd, I guess. I guess it could just be bad luck, but maybe it's something more -

Oh, I'm sure I'm just being silly. Probably out of sorts because of the new baby on the way. Being pregnant is supposed to make you feel and think ridiculous things, right?

Yes, that must be it.
