Well, I think that Josie does want to see me again and that’s kind of a relief. I do not understand what is going on there with Harrier and I am not going to worry about it either because if I do, that means he wins.
Oh well, I don’t know exactly when we’re going to get together yet but I hope it’s soon. I really would like to talk to her and let her know that I am not always like that. I just lost my temper and thought it would be better if I just walked away rather than stand there and be constantly insulted by her business partner. It wasn’t a good situation at all.
My Mom is on this kick right now that is really kind of annoying me because she is listening to the rumors that fly around Stormwind all of the time. I know that there are people out there that dislike the mixed bloods. She and Fnor already know about the ones in Darnassus that may have infiltrated Stormwind too, however, this new group is a different group of zealots. Sure, I know people out there dislike the thing that I am a halfling; however, I’m still a contributing member of the kingdom. She is afraid that they will come after Vashlan and I, which I don’t understand. There are plenty of other mixed breeds in the city. She thinks it has a lot to do with who we are too. That’s just silly. I don’t think that a lot of people know us and I doubt that they would come after us for that. I’m sure that it is just another one of those rumors that runs rampant in the cities from time to time.
I know that I have been very business getting my contracts done yet and that is real hard for me to slow down. If I have contracts, I have to get them done, no matter if some radicals are out there trying to take me down or not. The business has to keep functioning and we can’t stay here behind closed doors just because we think that someone is out to harm us.
I miss seeing Josie though. It’s not like I can walk over to the shop and see her whenever I want because I don’t want to cause her any trouble with the people she is currently working for. That’s a real strange group of people anyway. First they say they want me to work with them and then, I never hear a single word from any of them except for me just running into Harrier casually on the pier sometimes. He’s such a jerk. I am happy that I’m not depending on them for a source of revenue or I’d be joining the guy that is always begging for food and money outside the warehouse on the sidewalk. I don’t mind working with other companies other than my family’s business because it gives me a chance to get to know the competition and to get to know more people.
I’ve been spending some time with Romey, oh yeah; she changed her name because she got tired of how people were butchering her real name of Remmagdamia, which is a mouthful even when you can get it out correctly. She seems to be real nice and I’ve never really had much to do with the Draeni even when we were in Shattrath. She’s been working for us for a while here in Stormwind because she was the only one that didn’t seem to mind the blurring lines of a Kaldorei/Sindorei run business here in Stormwind. She’s an attorney, so, that must mean that’s she spent a lot of time going to school. I like to listen to her talk because that accent sounds so different from what I’ve grown accustomed too. She’s not too bad on the eyes except for the hooves. I don’t know what it is about me and girls with hooves but it does kind of throw me off a bit. She always looks so great , those legs are long and she’s tall, then, I get to the hooves and any dreams I might have had just come to a screeching halt.
I’m still lonely here in Stormwind. The people are nice enough but I do feel like a fish out of water most of the time. Some people are nice and friendly and others just stand there and stare at me like I have a horn growing out of my forehead.
I haven’t seen Civardi and Seashen for a very long time, I should go out and wander around and see if I can’t get in touch with them somehow, they always seem to be having fun. I didn’t realize that Civardi had a son until I found them dueling each other a few weeks back. I didn’t realize that he was that old, he sure doesn’t act like it. Well, he doesn’t act like Harrier does at least. I think Harrier is just an old cranky elf that hates anything and everybody that doesn’t fit into how he thinks they should be. Anyway, I guess that Seashen had gotten some cookies that were meant for someone else because they were laced. She’s kind of funny when she’s stoned.
It was another one of those nights when I was just wandering around the city. I wish Josie hadn’t moved into the shop but I guess it was bigger than where she used to live. At least I could go over to her apartment before and knock on the door to see if she was home. Now, I just kind of have to wait to hear from her to find out when she can see me. I wonder why she puts up with the stuff from Harrier? She seems like she is tied to that outfit for some reason and I don’t understand why because I can’t see anything there that is noteworthy to make me want to continue the relationship with them. Maybe it’s just me, I don’t like it when people say one thing and do something else. I know I sure don’t like trading verbal barbs with someone all of the time because that’s now how I am.
There are a lot of different kinds of people in Stormwind and let’s not forget my trip to Iron Forge with the Bitterbeers. I might have to do that again because even though I found out that I can’t keep up with them drink for drink, I can still enjoy the company and the different people in that city. It was fun even though it seemed like it took me days to get rid of that hangover. The dwarves are a strange group of people, not just because they are short and hairy. I don’t think that I could live inside a mountain all of the time either, not having windows to look outside and definitely not being able to smell the fresh air as much as I’d like. I like the open feeling in Darnassus when I go there and it was the same in Shattrath – everything was kind of out in the open.
Now, Dalaran, that’s a different city altogether. There is so much magic in the air there that you can almost taste it. No wonder Vash’s latent talents decided to show up when we moved there. He was a lousy hunter anyway because he was one of those people that could stand there take careful aim and drop his arrow nine times out of ten. He just didn’t have the knack for it and I could tell that he didn’t like skinning all that much because he would hurry through the task and nine times out of ten on that, the hide wouldn’t be up to par. I’ll admit that he tried hard and my step-Father worked with him tirelessly even though I think he knew that that was not Vashlan’s calling in life.
I know that I keep asking myself why I am spending so much time in Stormwind these days. There’s not really much keeping here other than the business and a chance that I might get to see Josie sometime if she can break free from those people. I know I have to get my head back on straight and start taking care of some other things. Josie isn’t the only girl in the city, she’s different and I like to spend time with her because she’s so pretty and she does have a curiosity about things that reminds me of the little guys sometimes. Why is the sky blue, Kal…why aren’t there many trees in Dalaran and why don’t the people just have the mages feed them mage food and not work for food? All those questions that really isn’t that important unless they are asked.
I guess that Mom and Fnor are busy because I don’t see Mom that often these days. I kind of miss the fun talks that we used to have before we all moved to Dalaran. I really miss my step-Father a lot these days because he would talk to me like I was an adult and explain things that I don’t understand. I bet he would tell me to just quit pining after this one girl and go out and smell the other flowers in the garden. Fnor seems to get kind of uptight when I try to talk to him about personal things and will always tell me that I should ask my Mother. He’s trying hard to be a Father but I think the poor guy is just missing the end of the pier when he goes to get on the ship. There are guy things I would like to talk to him about that I think he would probably get all flustered and try to get me to talk to my Mom. Well, there are just some things a fellow can’t talk to his Mom about. Yeah, I know, I don’t have any real friends here in Stormwind to talk to about personal things and my brother is just worthless in that area because he’s got his nose in a book most of the time.
