We've reached Minae safely. My commander has been officially promoted. I learned this second hand because I'm bunking with the soldiers in a home that used to be occupied by a family. There are fewer people in the city because they went to Dentoria. The guards have instructions to kill me if I try to escape. We're heading back out in a few days, but for the moment we're well fed. I'm stealing these blankets when we go, and I don't think anyone's going to stop me.

So far there's no aid from Sarrca.

My sister didn't come for me. I didn't expect her to, but I was hoping she'd make an exception. It would have been interesting to see her again. Then she would have killed me, and we'd both be happy.

Eudora loves her new paints and ink so much! They are very fun and wonderful. Thank you, Leana, thank you very very much!

I keep telling myself that it's nothing. That all the times he says he's working late he's telling the truth. And part of me is completely convinced that I'm just getting worried for no reason. But there's that other little part that just won't go away ...

There's only one person I can really ask about this and I don't really want to put her in the middle. But if there is something going on then I have to find out.

Do you have a minute? I think I need some of your sisterly advice.

I'm sure it's nothing ...

I suppose it was only a matter of time...

They are beginning to talk about fighting again here. I suppose it is only naturally, with Sylea's troops so far away. This feud does something to them, makes them lose all reason. All they think of is how to finally get their revenge.

I know this last week has been very hard for all of us. It is almost impossible to even write of it here. But I do pray that things will get better soon, for everyone. It is at these moments that we need our faith the most.

If there is anything I can do to be of service to any of you, please know you need only ask.

A small gift from the Queen. A small amount of attention. Everything about this is just so small.

I have to do something about this. Laina must be on the Council. It's quite clear that Justine will never be of any use to Taleth so we need Laina there that much more. But my hands are so tied by the Queen's disfavour. If I could, I would change - no, there is little point in thinking about that. I made the right decision, based on the situation I was in. I never expected it to end up like this.

And so ... despite myself, I keep coming back to her. She could be of use, if I dared to do so. But I'm still not ready. Not yet.

I could've gotten Mal a bigger toy bear. I'm just standing here, looking at her room, and I think it would've fit. Not an overboard one, but at least one that might look like a baby bear. I know, it's been a few days, and I should move on, but the kid's going to grow up fast. I'll only get about twenty-five more chances before she's not going to accept toys that are five times her size! Maybe eight more tries before she stops liking them, and I get them anyway.

The problem is if she keeps growing at this rate, I might get crushed if I keep getting her toys bigger than she is.

It seems we will be staying here for longer than we had planned. Explaining to the children why their father has left without mentioning how awful it is outside has been a trial. But I am glad that they have been good. They do not complain, they stay out of the men's way, and they include the other children in their games. They have not said a word about missing home. Perhaps they still think this an adventure.
