So ... you really don't feel any of this? You didn't feel anything when the sword ... ? It's so odd to me, to think that it was ... just me and Lawrence, I guess. Even Celeste wouldn't have -- I mean, Ethniu was already awake for her, and she's had all this time to get used to Ethniu. But I ...

It's --

I don't know how she did it. This is so much worse than I ever expected. I really owe her an apology.

[Filter: Aileen]

Sorry about -- earlier. And everything. I -- really wish that I had some tea, or something. Or that we could go for one of our walks together.

He --

I probably shouldn't talk about him, should I? I feel like that will make it worse.

Did you ...

Did you read what Prudence wrote? About this vision that she and Patience had? I know they said that it doesn't have anything to do with Sunday, but ... but it's hard not to think it does, right?

I mean, maybe ... maybe the only way to stop that from happening is to do something right tomorrow. I don't know what. I don't even know what we're supposed to do, but ...

... I'm scared.

This is going to sound weird and you can tell me to go ... buzz off and think about it on my own if you want! But I think that Moon Festival has me feeling anxious. Which I'm sure is true for you, too ...

So, I guess there's nothing like possible impending disaster to make you try and examine yourself.

You know ...

Aileen was really upset about the geas thing. I don't think I've ever even seen her that upset. But she talked to me about it, and ... well, I like to think that I helped her about it. Just talking her through everything, making sure she knows that she's still the same person ...

...

How do you know when you honestly really like someone? How can you be sure?

Both of you know, and you're both so ... happy.

I don't want to mess this up again because I've convinced myself -- again -- that this is what's right.
valiant_kail: (Er...)
[Filter: Franelcrew except Jonathan and Lauren]

Um.

I mean, I didn't want to say something yesterday, when they hadn't been gone for that long, but -- but I sort of thought they would be back by now? I kind of thought I'd get up for breakfast and they'd be there eating with the rest of us!

Are they still ... out there? I mean it's not like I want to bring it up but -- they'd have written if they were done with, um, whatever it was, right? I'm starting to worry that something might have ...

Haha, I know. It's silly, right.

Erm.
valiant_kail: (Er...)
Here, boys, do you want some cookies? I snitched a few last night. Nessa didn't even see me! Though, um, I guess she did now. Sorry Nessa.

I can give one of you a piggyback ride if you'd like, or if your legs are getting tired! I'm sure Sawyer wouldn't mind giving the other one. You've got to be completely bushed! My legs would have been super tired by now, when I was your age. I didn't walk around nearly this much. You know, my legs hurt right now, and I'm way older than either of you!

I can try and teach you to juggle again tonight, if you want ...

I really wish there was some way we could bring even more pie with us on the road. I know we're leaving any minute, but --

I mean, it's not that I'm hungry. It's just that going out here in the mist again ... we could use the pie. Even the road to Doolin was probably less forested than this, if it's anything like it was back when we ran into the boys.

And I sort of have a feeling that it's going to be a lot like that.
valiant_kail: (>:?)
Okay! Okay I'm here, where do I need to -- if you can get her over to me so I can just hit her with this --

How the hell do people even use these things?!

This has to work. Dragons, if this doesn't work, we're all -- it has to work!

Do we need to hide? Are we going to jump out and yell "surprise"? Is she on her way here yet??

[Filter: Aileen]

Hi.

I'm, erm, just going to write this out all at once so I don't lose my nerve.

It's not that I don't think I could like you, Aileen, it's that ... Well. It's that I like how things were, with us. I liked just ... going for walks. Talking about my day, knowing that you were listening to me and not sitting there thinking, oh, Kail, he's just so stupid about these things. And maybe you were thinking that, considering I never noticed, but --

But that's not what I'm writing about!

What I'm writing about is that I shouldn't have gotten you that rose. Not because I don't like you, because you're my friend, Aileen, and -- and that means a lot to me! But I only did it because Lawrence and Loki told me that you were interested, and I really should have thought about it and decided for myself if I was interested in you, too.

And the answer is ... well, the answer is, I don't know yet. I think I could be. But I think if I could be, it would be through ... through the way things were before. Going for walks. Talking. Playing at being your assistant, hah, little things like that ... and seeing what came as a result of all of that, you know? Seeing if ... if it naturally turned into something more.

I did talk to somebody about this, and I figure I should tell you that ... but they didn't tell me to do this. They just told me to ... to tell the truth, and to be honest with you, and then to think about this. Honestly. Which I'm going to try to do! Really. It was just advice, just like you'd ever ask anybody for advice ...

Anyway.

I'm sorry.

Can we try to just -- see if something happens?

And -- and if you're angry, I understand. I mean, I'd be angry too. Probably.

Nessa?

I've ruined everything again and I don't know what to do.
valiant_kail: (Er...)
[Filter: Private]

But if she was going to cook for me, wouldn't I know by now? Wouldn't she be in the kitchen with everybody else?

She's cooking!

Loki told me she was cooking!

I don't know what's going on! Is she making dinner instead? Dragons I don't know what I'm going to do if that's it. But if that was it she'd be cooking, right? And she's not cooking.

I don't know what to do!!
valiant_kail: (Er...)
[Filter: Sawyer]

I really need your advice!

Though it's probably weird asking for advice from this from

If I'm getting a rose for Aileen --

Okay, no, scratch that. I am getting a rose for Aileen.

Do you think I should only get her one? Should I get her more than one? Is that coming on too strong? Everyone's telling me that she's going to cook for me, and I guess considering how many people are telling me that, they're probably right, and I don't not want to get her something.

One rose, right? That's reasonable! Especially since she and I aren't ... well, we haven't started even -- we haven't even said anything is happening between us! We haven't even talked about it!

I don't want to mess this up!
valiant_kail: (Default)
Okay, I got the cake, and some tarts ... and we wanted cupcakes, too, right? They have, um, some vanilla ones and some lemon ones and the honey cakes, of course ...

I wish they'd had chocolate, or something! They didn't even have any chocolate icing. I asked about it, but the woman behind the counter seemed really upset about it.

There weren't even any chocolate butter tarts!

Why does he always think I can't handle myself? It's not like it's that hard. It's just Gabe and Eabh, they're not -- they're enthusiastic! Maybe a bit too much. But I can handle them! I'm a grown man. It just always comes down to this, to well if you're sure, Kail. Do you really think you can handle it, Kail? We're right here if you need help, Kail.

I've got it under control! How many times do I have to say it?

[Filter: Public, in Kilian]

Boys!!

Come work training! Are ready for practice?

How you like swords??
valiant_kail: (:)!)
Well, that was certainly way different from what I was expecting. I guess I was imagining something a lot slower? A lot less lively, anyway! I think when I hear "amhran" I just think of the one in Eina? And that was really different from this one. It even sounded different! I guess because it was older.

Anyway!

That was really good! It was Lionel, right? I can't believe you'd never played one of those before! You sounded like you had years of practice.

Are you two staying the rest of the night? You should stay! -- Er, I mean, if Lady Labhri is all right with it! It's her house.
valiant_kail: (Er...)
Can we just ...

Let's just pretend everything is normal, all right? I mean, I'm still ... I know this sword is, um, er. Making things odd ...

It's me! Still me. Just Kail.

Please don't be weird.

-- I think Sawyer's hurt!

He fell over, he was -- her was trying to get the sword, he was crazy, and I grabbed it before he could and now he's just -- just laying there! He dropped like someone hit him over the head!

I don't know if he's all right! What happened? Dragons, someone get out here, I think he's really seriously hurt!
valiant_kail: (Er...)
I, um, I don't see any switches! I've been over the entire thing. Twice! I don't see anything anywhere ... and, um, it's certainly not moving on its own ...
