... Demi.

Demi, I know -- I know that you're out tonight at that thing with Hope but I -- I think that I need you. Badly.

I'm glad that Eri finally got a good guy looking after her. All the girls that I end up talking to ... they don't even care or think that I'm -- bleh. It doesn't matter, right? They all just smile and laugh and act all girly but nothing happens. I don't even see them again after that.

Nothing seems to be working for me.

Not with girls, not with getting into the army, not even with this stupid job I finally thought I had.

I'm such a failure ... I finally get a break ... a real job, and I manage to screw it up in just a couple of weeks! No one is ever going to trust me with deliveries again after I damaged the package. I had to pay for the damage with the money I earned. I ended up with barely anything after all that!

How am I going to start saving up, now?

I just ... I wish I could just drink and drink ... that usually helps ...

Hm ... everyone who is drinking certainly does seem to be having a better time of it all. I wonder how upset mother would be if I had just a bit to drink with the rest of them ...

Lydia especially seems to be having a grand time of it all ... actually, she's been having more to drink than usual, as of late, hasn't she?

I can't take this. It's hard enough contending with Dickon and his behavior, but if she doesn't stop pestering me...!!

I need to speak with you. Now.

I fear I am a little late in writing to say that we have all safely arrived in Tersel. The children are, of course, overjoyed to be with their father once more. And to be free from the confines of the carriage.

The city itself is different then when I left, understandably so. All our thoughts are constantly of the North and the brave men there defending our country. Already supplies have been sent and more will soon be on their way. I am very proud to have such caring people here.

My sister and Lady Gloria are also doing well.

This is something I have been prepared for since I was a girl, is it not? To defend home and hearth while the men war. The commons look to me for guidance and leadership, and I have to set an example. Though the best of our men have left, there is no reason for us to be afraid. Everything will proceed as best as we can manage, so that when our armies return, they will find nothing amiss.

It is strange to not have Mother home. She has always been such a ... presence here. I am relieved that she will be safely ensonced in Tersel. She deserves better than the burden of running the household at a time of uncertainty. She will find time in the city of her youth most restful, no doubt ...

Lireth is settling back almost to how it was before the refugees arrived. Everyone who has remained seems to have this ... determined glint in their eyes. They wish to do all they can to support the army, even if they cannot physically be at the barracks. I think any messengers sent from the barracks will be surrounded by people wanting news.

Well, well, it seems the day has finally arrived. How fortunate I am to have you alive to see this, Father. I wonder whether you will understand what has happened, even if you cannot express your sentiments yourself. It is for the good of Fairen. The commons have sore need of a lord of able mind and body, you will have to agree.

You ought to enjoy your ... retirement, Father. I am~

Well, you certainly seem to be making a good impact on the Goddess clergy. Much as I wish it wasn't necessary, it's a wise move. I'm sure you've seen how fondly Edalene thinks of them. Do you think you're going to humor them?

Honestly, how much longer are you and your family going to throw fits about this party?

So, you must be on your way up here by now, aren't you?

I've been wondering, and I can promise you I'm not the only one. Are you done with this whole business with Canti? You've been acting so unlike yourself that none of us have been quite sure what to make of ut.

Of course, now that you're headed up here, I should imagine it'll be all too easy for you to forget about it and go back to normal. It'll be a bit of a relief, to be entirely honest.

That there is only one month remaining in the year has lead me to think of all that has happened, in such a short span of time. A year is short, to be sure, and more so when you have lived more than thirty of them, as I have. Life can be so ... unexpectedly taken. My mother had died before her time, and now, the King ... I suppose this year has lead me reminded me to appreciate life, in all of its fragility. And next year, I know there will be more to learn.

Five little ducks went out one day
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said "quack quack quack"
But only four little ducks came back!


I definitely remember how to count to five in Atsirian now! And the word for duck! And what ducks say in Atsirian! Isn't this song great??

Well, there come more of them. I can't believe how many of the villages have been hit by the rebels in recent weeks. It's certainly lucky we have the room in the city to accommodate them all. I'd hate to have to turn them away.

It's terribly hard to explain what's happening to the children. Oh, Aiden understands, of course, he's such a very smart boy. Rosie, the dear, she tries, but it's just so much that she doesn't understand, and Devon is still much too young. I only hope this nonsense doesn't go on much longer. I've sent some men out to survey the nearby villages and escort any new refugees into the city. I can only pray that it proves to be enough.

Is anybody else seeing this?

I'm wondering if I ought to get between the two of them. I think if I leave them alone much longer, they're going to be at each other's throats, but I'd hardly want them to get at my throat instead.

Honestly, this is not what I expected from Rebecca, of all people. She's always so patient and understanding, it's like she's an entirely different person.

Prince Finlay, perhaps, if you would ...

There's something important that Eudora needs to tell you, before you hear it from someone else. The healers don't think that Lord Tomas is really able to do the stuff a lord needs to do. So they're going to give him a test to see how much he is able to understand and if it doesn't go well then Alastair is going to be the one who makes all the important decisions and things like that.

Eudora doesn't really think it will go well. He still isn't doing very well, though some days are better than others. Maybe everything will go fine though Eudora is sure that Alastair would be a very good lord in his place.

Lady Eve.

We've -- Coliya is gone. We managed to get out before it was taken, but we wanted your permission to land in the city and rest there for a little while. We're a day or two's flight out, but we didn't want to just come in without any reason.

We don't really know where we're going to go next. Maybe out East to see where all the rumors we're not starting are coming from, but we haven't decided yet. We thought it might be better to stop for a little while and decide then, but if you won't have us, that's fine.
