Mm ... well, everything seems to be in order. At the very least, there isn't so much chaos within the city ... and with the people knowing of their Lord and Ladies return, they all seem to be in much higher spirits. The soldiers are all prepared and I believe that all that is left to do is await their arrival.

Soon, I will be able to join my family back home, where I belong.

I do wonder how everything has been fairing, in Allba. We certainly haven't heard from either of them in quite a while ... hn. It does me no good, being so far from such a delicate situation. Returning home will help put my mind at ease, at the very least.

[Filter: Constance, in Trade]

Mm, I had meant to ask if you were planning on staying in Rowan for a short while before returning to Allba, love. I do hope that you have not run into any trouble, along the way?

You know ... I never realized just how many damned stops merchant vessels really made until I tried traveling pretty much across Eire, in one. On one hand, you get to see a lot of cities. One the other hand, it takes you forever to try to get to where you're going.

Looks like we're close, though. They're saying we'll be in Floran by the end of the month.

As for what the hell I'm planning on doing once I get there, well ...

Who the fuck knows? Guess I'll figure that shit out when I get there.

[Filter: Those in Rayla]

So ... guess --


Hmm ...

You know, I was trying to think of a good way to announce that we were finally home, but honestly? Maybe it's just better to come out and say it. We should be landing in about thirty minutes. Of course, there's lots of work to be done as soon as we land, isn't there? Could someone meet me by the doors to fill me in?

Dragons, I hate this.

Lord Henry nearly killed in his own solar. Kasrae completely locked down, no one in or out. The people in terrified turmoil. No one sure who to trust. So Henry sends to us for help, and no one here can decide what to do.

This is awful. It's not just that Kasrae is one of our closest allies. Dammit, Lara's been here in Rayla since she was fifteen. She's been here since before I was. She's practically -- she's practically family. I should be able to do whatever I need to to help her.

She begs me to send men to protect her father and flush out the assassin. And that's what I want to do. That's what I should do.

But it's not that easy ... and I'm starting to see that now. After Gathre, after the bandit attacks, after that town ... we're being baited. We're being lured. It's almost certain that this is what this is, too. If we just keep falling for this, over and over again, we're not going to have any men left to defend Rayla with, and then ...

Ugh. But what do we do? The assassin, whoever he is, is still in Kasrae. We can't just let that stand!

How do you do this, Harriet?

I see that you discovered the truth.

I knew it, I just knew it. He's sneaking off somewhere. And if he has to hide it from me then what else could it be? I've seen it happen before, after all. I've had it happen to me before. But that wasn't the same, it wasn't- he's my husband! We have a child together and another one the way! How could he do this?

Maybe there's just something wrong with me. Something that makes everyone I love want to hurt me. Terrance, my father, and now Destin too. I just don't understand.

I don't know what to do now. I could confront him about it but he'd only lie. I can't ask Elizabeth about anything anymore. It's just me.

... I have to know for sure. And if I'm the only person I can count on then I'll just have to find out on my own.

[the ink is smeared] I hate this.

It has been so long since Dentorians have been lead to war. More souls sent to die in this kingdom's service. No doubt there will be many in the North praying that they will not have someone to mourn for the next Day of the Fallen. The news is spreading slowly but surely. Murmurs against any man of Koriner blood are growing. The guard will have to be alert for signs of dissent. I do not like to think of measures I may have to take should someone decide to be a fool, but I have faith that my city will remain civilized. We're of the East, after all. It is the Northerners who solve their problems with fists and blades.

It's strange. I forgot what day it is, this morning, but now that I have been reminded, I feel guilty. Of course, I can't show any of it, if I'm Lauren's cousin. This day should not matter to me.

It reminds me of home. A holiday that is uniquely ours, that commemorates a value it seems only we hold dear. This day reminds every noble born that they stand on the sacrifices beneath them. It is a lesson this country could stand to learn.

[Filter: Hasten]

So. Would it be right to congratulate you, my lord General?
