Passage to Aeda leaving first thing in the morning...

How did he do it? How did he manage to leave behind everything he'd ever known, and take on an entirely new life? It hurts so bad, and I didn't have a choice. I've always been more rooted then he has. I traveled, but Lucre was always my home. No matter where I went, I knew I could return home. Whenever I spent time away, I knew it would just make me fonder of the place. Now I'll never find my way back again, and ...

It isn't fair that I have to do this. Elliot is right about that. I just wish I could be angry at more people than I am. There are parts I brought on myself, certainly, and it's understandable that given what happened I would be shunned. But none of this would have happened the way it had if Lord Lucius hadn't gone out of its way to make it happen. Elizabeth's reputation was safe with me. It's not my fault that information spread.


I guess I'm not really a priest anymore. I don't know who I am instead, either.

And that takes care of the last one. I hope you will all understand if I would rather take a break rather than move on to the next room immediately.

Ha! I must say, being able to take an active role on this one has made me excited. Did you see how easy that one was once the pieces really came together? I managed to get one, and it was the hardest of the group. I feel like celebrating. Do you think they'll let us into the kitchens? Dragons, I'm on fire, even if they don't let us in, you could cook a meal right on me.

Hm~ now, I believe with all of these puzzles they've no need for help with, I've been sitting idly by for far too long. I think it's about time I went out in search of my own entertainment, for tonight. Perhaps a little date, even~

Jordan, dear~ I hope you aren't terribly busy, hm?

I've been thinking, it's been quite a while since we've had a date, no? And if you haven't completely finished your Festival shopping, yet, I thought it might be a good time to get that done as well. What do you think~? ♥

All right.

All right, baby girl, my dear little princess, you're all right. You're all right.

No one is going to think to look for her at the bottom of the ocean, and I think we did a fine job cleaning up Karia's room, didn't we? People are going to ask plenty of questions, looking for her, and that's just fine. So long as they're not peering at you for the answers, that's just fine.

We're okay, sweetheart. We're okay.

I...yes, I must be. I've been so tired lately and I thought it was from the wedding preparations and having so many guests, but it hasn't gone away! I really am! Oh, and this time I just know it'll be a boy, it just has to! I've been as patient as I can be, so has Hasten, this time I will give him a son.

...mm, but I shouldn't tell him just yet. It's so stressful with the refugees and the riots. Perhaps I'll wait until the Festival. I'll give him a beautiful gift and tell him the news, and everything will be wonderful!

I hate deceiving people, especially when it comes to what the faith and the Dragons are here for. It is not fair to allow people to continue to believe in these ridiculous superstitions, but this is an opportunity that I cannot pass up. It is only a small lie, and in the end it might help him. Sometimes white lies are okay. Sometimes they are even necessary.

Perhaps it will be enough to convince Lord Gebann that I am doing my best to assist him in any way I can.

[Filter: Lord Gebann]

I have some good news. A man came to me today asking for help. He says that months ago there was a murder in one of the houses he rents out. No one, it seems, has been willing to take up residence since it happened. He thinks that, perhaps, if I bless his house it will comfort future tenants. It is ridiculous, I know, but it might lead to some information that can help you.

Mm, it is rather tense here, is it not? Our hosts are doing an excellent job in keeping their fine, Northern faces as stoic as possible, but every now and then, one hears Lord Hasten thundering down the halls, and poor Lady Amaeyra is more highly strung than a harp. I hardly think that is all Lord Tarmon's work, mm? Though his presence is less than helpful.

No, I think it is those refugees. Desperate people do desperate things, and the air outside is becoming so hostile, I've hardly left the manor in days. I cannot help but feel that one angry word will set the tinder alight. Kiefer says I'm being melodramatic, but all of you will promise me that you will stay inside the manor today, won't you?

Well, I did it. I went to the rockpools with the jewellery I made, and there were some girls and pilgrims who took a look at what I had! I even sold three necklaces and a bracelet! That went well, didn't it? I never thought I'd sell that much on my first day!

I have to make more necklaces now, so I can go back there will more to sell!

If he wishes for an answer, then here is the answer:

The heirs to Forna which Keran of Sarrca claims to hold are no better than his puppets. A whore to warm his bed and a boy to serve as his claim to the House's line. We work for the true Forna, not for a pair of children who seek shelter in the arms of a man who would kill them under any other circumstances.

We do not commit the atrocities piled upon our names. We have better scores to settle than ones with peasants and shivering refugees. We fight for the future of Korin, not to destroy it. Why would we seek to drive out our own future?

Tell us that, Lord Keran, and save your lies about restoring the Forna line, about safety for a pair of children who obey your every word. Their lives and the lifeblood of Forna obviously mean naught to you. No one cares to hear you speak with that serpent's tongue of yours.

I have to say, I'm looking forward to this Festival tourney everybody's been talking about. I imagine we're not likely to have too many more of them for the next several months, after all ... maybe a couple more before the snows set in, but who knows after that?

Ah, though, I don't think I could ever compete. I've seen some of the riders here, and I couldn't hold my own against them. Which is a little embarrassing to say! But still true.

Er, in any case, Seraphine and I will certainly be attending, as well as coming to the Festival Eve party at court, of course.

So get this. I find a guy in town who makes stuff outta glass and showed him all the broken pieces I got. Says it some kinda fancy glass. Better than he can make around here. He gives me a box fulla his own stuff and a purse of silvers. Says between the box and the silver it'd more than make up for what I owe that bastard I'm workin for. Tells me if he melts down that fancy stuff he can make even more than he gave me for it.

Great news right? Wrong!! I give everything to that bastard and it ain't good enough. He took all of it and says I still owe him more. He's doin me a favor and ain't gonna charge me extra for more time, but I still gotta pay him. I'm gonna kill him! At this rate I'm gonna have to get a second job if I even want a chance of bein out of debt before he leave.

But no, he spends all his time riding around the city, putting down any more fights that start up. Putting out any more fires. Gathering up the troublemakers to toss them outside of the walls ...

Heh, good thing I got Mom and Grandpa's gifts extra early this year. I sent them out two weeks ago, and even had to put a "do not open until the Festival" note on each one.

A lot has happened since we last spoke. It's been years, after all, and my House has been at war for an entire one of those years. It's been a long since since I had a conversation with anyone that wasn't about this conflict.

... um, so. How is your family? Dar? Declan? Like I said, we haven't spoken, and it's been ages since anyone from my family's been to Lahn. I haven't heard from any of them. Does Dafydd still blame you everytime someone disobeys his orders? He always was a ponce about that ...

Well, you know, this shit Sarrca keeps saying has a point in it.

Where the hell is Rayla? I knew they'd never come out to Fryda, we're not exactly allied or anything, but what's this about only sending a few pass at Lahn, here! There's plenty of others throughout the mountains, and I'd bet good money there's refugees streaming through every single one of them!

But whatever, Rayla's never cared for anyone but Rayla, I guess we always knew that.

Didn't know about the whole Forna heirs thing. If that's true, I guess these rebels really are just raging at the world and watching it burn. Wouldn't shock me. Makes perfect sense, even!

Finally, I am settled in my old bed. It is hardly as comfortable as home, I admit, but there is something refreshing to be laying in it once again. I am expected to return to work tomorrow, as well. It has been getting extremely busy, or so I've been told, with all the pilgrims passing through. This is such a wonderful time of the year. I love meeting all of the devoted worshipers as they stop in to rest. Their tales of the places they have been, and the things that they have seen are simply wonderful.

[Filter: Private]

Wonderfully dull.

If I have to hear how lovely the Pilgrim's Road is one more time from these want to be religious Dentorians one more time I am just going to snap. Why is it that making some multiple week long trip suddenly makes you a perfect devout follower of the Dragons? All traveling does is make you feel gross and smell like a horse's ass. It is always the same. By the time I see any of them again all they will be able to talk about is how eager they are to return to their homes.

They're liars. All of them. Not that I am any better. I suppose it takes one to know one, as they say.

What a thoroughly somber and unenjoyable celebration that was. Hm. I'll have to make that up to him, when it's more appropriate to do so, of course. Granted that could be awhile, judging by the state of affairs outside these walls. Awful messy business, and right before the Festival, too. I don't envy you, Hasten, not in the least.

But for those of us behind the walls, here, well, life goes on, doesn't it? It's rather adorable, really, how she thinks I haven't noticed her placing herself conveniently wherever I've planned to be. And how she lights right up when I so much as glance in her direction, always flattering to see. Bella's a bloody wild thing, but let's be honest. I can drape her in as many silks and jewels as I like, and a blind deaf beggar still wouldn't mistake her for a Lady.

It's hardly as though I've made any promises, yet. And the woman isn't even paying attention, is she? Murders in Keirnan, that's enough to keep anyone occupied.

So what harm could it do, really, to pay the girl a little attention?

[Filter: Lady Canti]

Now, I just can't help notice, my Lady, that all this awful tension seems to be weighing down on you, worst of all.

I truly can't stand to see a lovely Lady like yourself in distress, and so I wonder, is there anything I could do to help ease the burden of all this, for you? Perhaps I could offer a pleasant distraction, if nothing else.
