This month I have been given nothing at all to focus on and I must say this pleases me for I have now the chance to concentrate upon something that was discussed some months ago, a passing fancy and nothing anyone had thought would go further. Certainly not between the two of us, I believe.
I wonder sometimes if I am doing this for selfish reasons, just to find myself again, or if really I am focusing on the task behind it all? Of course to share my plans might bring about misfortune so I have kept quiet about everything and used the night to hide away in once again. I hate the city but I must pass through it now for my homeland is not the place it used to be and a new world has sprung up between us. How terrible it all is, the gloomy streets and the hideous sounds of these metal beasts of no magic.
Already they watch me, wondering why I hide my eyes and wear these clothes. I have failed in my attempt to blend and disappear and all for the sake of fashion. HA. I will it have it this way.
I packed cheese, bread and mushroom pate for Julius. This pleased him and we can hunt together along the way. Already I need new boots.
Darling Russell, please send me coinage for the mortals smell of rot.
