I have to say, I wasn't expecting people to reinterpret the flower garlands. But you know, making flowers out of pegasus feathers is a unique little idea, isn't it? And certainly better and lovelier than cloth flowers. Though I suppose they're likely to not last as long, aren't they?

Hm, now that I look, it is only the pegasus knights wearing them. I wonder if they were Dame Kira's idea? I'll have to talk to her about it. I wonder if they only use feathers from their own mounts?

A spinster taking advantage of her brother's charity. She has said nothing that I had not thought myself, once upon a time. But according to the one man who matters, I am her better, married or not, and he is not inclined to change his mind.

Can I fix this? The opportunity to repair my and Felicia's place to what it should be, what it ought to be, has long passed. Because I had thought that my place here would not be permanent. I never intended my choices to cause another person so much ...

Perhaps I can give her what she wants, little by little, without Hasten's knowledge. But if she wants me to be less involved in Mae's life, to turn my back when she comes to me, I don't ... that is a request I cannot accommodate.

Of course she will, and he'll write to me and ask how I could say such horrid things to his precious jewel of a sister, and I'll bend my knee to him like I always have.

But at least now I'm not forced to pretend I don't resent her. I doubt any of that got through to her, but it's been said.

Her name is Delia, and she's only six years old. She's in an orphanage right now, Saint Morelle's, and your friend Scott thinks that the priests there are involved in something terrible that may result in Delia being kidnapped or ... worse. So I've been helping him as much as I can. And I have a plan to get her out, and I have a plan for where she can go, and all of this is terribly long winded and I'm so sorry.

And it would make a better impression for the cause of the Coldlands if someone of House Lireth ... if I were to make the request of their woodsmen personally. It will be a good experience for Mae. Hasten would approve of that, wouldn't he?

I simply worry of leaving Lireth to Felicia again so soon. Managing its household and attending to matters of governance in Hasten's absence is an enormous responsibility now that we have been raised among the Great Houses.

I told her that Sister Genevieve is a very influential person in the Church, and she laughed and said the Church is the last institution she expects to pull patronage from, which I suppose is very true but besides the point! But telling her that Lady Cassandra was a friend of Princess Fayre's did it. Easily! She is terribly fond of the princess. But really, aren't most people? Reasonable people, at least?

In any case I do have the tickets. Box seats for tomorrow evening. There's room for five, I do hope that's enough. I'll speak with the ushers this evening?

There is no one left in Tarra with one of these, is there? It's a pity. It's been months, now, and I often wonder what's become of the shop. We left it in such a state. And I miss my books. More than I thought I would, actually. It was over a decade's worth of work, I suppose.

You would think this -- new project, of sorts, would fill the gap, but it's not exactly fulfilling. Concentrating in as much quiet as we can gather, trying to sense the pulse of a thing I only barely understand -- I don't even know if I'm doing this right.

But, well. It's been three days. I doubt I'll manage anything more than I already have, here.

We're not far enough south, if this thing I have been focusing on is correct. What else could it be, though? Powerful artifacts cannot be very common, here. South and east, I think. We should find a new destination.

It's awful. It's too awful. I can't -- Princess Fayre, Prince Julian, how can your father want me to say nothing at all?? I was patrolling down a hall, just making sure everything was safe, and -- I watched Lady Amalda hit one of the servant girls -- or, well, slave girls, I suppose... ... she hit her so hard that she flew back and hit the wall. And then she apologized -- to us! To me and Dame Lizbeth! For having to see it!

The King has to be mistaken. I should have helped her. We need to help them!

I liked this place before. It smells nice and the food is so good. There are so many gardens, more beautiful than even the ones I remember. And I missed chocolate so much! But -- I don't like it, now. How long do we have to stay? Are you sure we can't do something??

I have something for you.

We need information on someone. This someone happens to be a fan of the theater. I have someone ready to convince them they need to see your play. I need to know what showing is best for you, assuming you're still willing to work.
