Whole town's talking about the Craig's favorite grandson going missing. I've heard everything from him stealing the family sword to sell it and run, to it being given to him as a gift and one of his cousins offing him in a jealous rage. One of my customers insisted there's a reward so high for his return that you'd never have to work for the rest of your life. Someone even said Old Man Rhia did it. Only thing everyone seems to agree on is that he's missing.

I don't remember the last time one topic was all anyone could talk about. It's like they've completely forgotten about the Festival already. With this much gossip I can't imagine the kid would stay missing for long. Someone's going to have to spot him.

Moping around the store isn't going to help. You should just take the day off, or the whole week, or whatever you need. We can postpone leaving until things get settled if you want? You're supposed to be the positive one here.

Dragons fucking shit.

This is impossible. Anytime we think we're getting somewhere, the walls get bombarded again and he dangles another fucking fish hook of people in front of us, like we haven't already seen a dozen of them.

Lirit, isn't there anything else you can do? We can hear the chaos in there from out here, how have they not fucking broken down the walls by now? Didn't you give them those weapons I told you to get ready? What the hell is going on?

I can't believe she got me something. It's almost as if she was trying to make me feel guilty for...no, Stephanie, don't falter in this. She had no right to act the way she did. Besides, she would have just hated whatever you gave her anyway so why bother?

I wish there were something we could do for Lancel...I still don't understand. Such wonderful news should have made him happy, right? Unless he doesn't believe Symeon...

...it really was the best Festival ever. Even without Jeff...sure, we all missed him, it wasn't the same without him, but it didn't hurt as much as last year. I wish he were still here, I always miss him, but every day it hurts less.

I'm sure he's happy, wherever he is now. He's gotta be in a good place, watching us have fun...he'd want it that way. He wouldn't want us to be sad forever.

Happy Festival, Jeff.

Lady Canti's body is healing, but there is little that can be said to heal her spirit. She will dream of the day for weeks, months, years. The moment will come to her at the sound of a Koriner man's voice, the sight of the streets outside, the next Festival, and the next. For nights, she will cry herself to sleep from the shame of it. Even in her home, surrounded by knights sworn to her family's service, she will never feel safe again.

At least the man is dead. At least he does not live and breathe, his eyes lingering in places no gentleman would glance twice. At least he does not prey upon the halls, waiting to catch her alone, waiting for his chance to take her again. At least he is not --

There is so much I have to do.

Auntie, if you could spare me a moment ... there is something I would like to discuss with you.

Oh, I can't believe September's going to be over so soon! It just went by so quickly ... but I guess September always feels like that, to me. I just lose track of the days when the pilgrims come, and then it's the Festival ...! And then the days blur together again until the pilgrims return home ... I think I'm going to sleep for a whole day once the last of the pilgrims leave ...!

It was a quiet Festival, for Matthias and I. Sometimes, I think I miss the family celebrations, but then I remember the dancing and the music and the noise, and then I remember that I much prefer the quiet. Although I do miss my family.

Oh, and thank you for your gift, Uncle Hayden. I thought I should let you know it has arrived on time and intact. It's a very useful present indeed, and I think I will be perusing it regularly.

Have you heard anything from him? I've been looking and looking, but he's just -- he's just gone! And everybody's saying such horrible things, like ... like that he ran away, or he got himself killed bragging about it, and I thought -- I thought if he'd been in touch in the last couple of days, he would have said something to you for sure...

He has to be out there somewhere...

Jayne, Aiden. I wanted to thank you for your gifts again. I know it's been a while, but since you have both been busy with your families, I thought perhaps this would be a ... better way to bring it up.

I'm sorry it's been so long since I've written. I should have started sooner, I know. It was just ... Well. I'm sorry for it either way.
