Business is still good, and my living quarters are more livable now that I've replaced the old furniture. I've met a few good people too, from all walks of life. I'm really settling into this city nicely.

The patron fair is coming up today. I plan on attending.

Is my daughter trying to say, "Mother, a wolf followed me home, may I keep it?"
Goats dear. Goats, and chickens, and so many hounds. And small children.

There is a kind of loneliness that only comes from the absence of a presence you are used too. Even if it was a silent one, it was there. And I feel that empty quiet much more than the full one as we scribbled our various bits of research side by side. I do hope things are going well in Darkwater. But once again I find myself proven right. Everyone leaves.

What?

With the Shadow Carnival coming up, my attention has turned to my wardrobe and I have come to realize I need something new for this. Something grandiose. I have more than a few ideas in my mind, the question is determining which I want to pursue - and which I want to keep for more private usage.

A truly daunting thing.

In the meantime, I am working on getting my shoulder back into working condition. There are many well-intentioned people out there advising me to slow it down, take it easy. It happens nearly every time I pick up a sword. One even told me I should be refusing to duel while this heals. I laid in bed, ill, for months, and if anything it got worse. Pushing myself as far as I can go, and further beyond that still remains the only thing that ever seems to do me any good.

Of course, this applies even outside the arena.

What are a few more scars, after all?

Shard, I'm not sure what catty thing you'll find to say to this one, but I'm sure you'll find something. I look forward to it.

I thought I woke
to you right there
no words we spoke
no uttered care.

Your curve of lips,
you said 'Oh Josie'
the cold fingertips
tore right through me.

'Sister,' I prayed,
'Ianthe, it's me.
'You should have -stayed-
'and never gone to sea.'

Twenty three years as of yesterday I've been alive. Four years I've been free since being released from Thralldom by Princess Donella. About nine months I've been a duelist in Arx. My life has changed so fast. So many ups and downs, twists and turns, but yet always growth and improvement. I've become faster, stronger, smarter, smoother then I've ever been. I am a star that rises but never falls, I can not go anywhere but up.

City life here in Arx is quite a lot different from what I'm used to. Not more complicated, but different. Of course, I didn't anticipate a protracted stay. But a protracted stay I may have. I'll spend a little time expanding my cultural knowledge and seeing what serves for parties in this noble city of ours. And, of course, catching up with my family. Arx seems to have attracted them all here, one by one by one.

I walked the woods the other day, skirted the edge, stayed where it felt safe. While I was there, I saw him. He'd followed me, gray coat like matte steel, ferrous metal tempered, ground with sand to reveal its warm shade. That was him. That was Gray.

He was never a loner. I don't know why he came. But I think he's here for me.

Mother is going to completely unbend over this.

Every road has its Detours (Week 12)

There has been delays to our departure for Tor. While hopefully this will not be long, I will be ready for the departure when the time arrives. It is important that this trip happens in the near future.

Besides the trip, the Archlector has me thinking. I should speak with him again in the near future.

So excited my twin is here in Arx! Now all of my sisters are in this city! Wait, uh sorry Arx, I apologize for unleashing all of us upon you.

I've learned lately that making one's words more scarce means they are valued more when they are said, if said wisely. I might just take that to heart.

All the same, mostly finished with my military strategy learning. Now I'm picking up botany books so I /definitely/ don't mistake a poisonous berry for an edible one.

Writing things down for posterity is occasionally much odder than I expected it to be.

This gift giving day... what can I say but that Prince Aiden Grayson is a generous man?

I suppose I might also say that somehow, a small plush rabbit appeared in my pocket as I went about my day. I assume someone has taken advantage of my recent blindness on the left side to practice filling my pockets on said side.

I shall keep my coins on the right going forward.
