Back In Dalaran…some missing employees

Dear Journal,

It does seem like the sun is definitely insisting on rising today no matter how much I’d like to make believe that I can stop time and sleep a little bit longer.  I’m sitting in the office in Dalaran this morning, so, that is at least a good thing and I can relax a little bit longer than I could if I were still in Orgrimmar.  I don’t know how Dawnglory keeps up with all of that, I think I would lose my mind if I had to deal with it all every single day.  At least I have a buffer here that I can at least kind of take an overview of things and not have to have hands-on all of the time.  I can honestly say that I have some new found respect for Fnar in how he keeps the employees in-line in Orgrimmar.

I know that I am a little disappointed with our news from the healers at the moment.  It seems that parenthood is not going to be imminent again for Amyn and me this month.  Oh, can’t say that we haven’t been trying and that seems to be the problem.  We’ve been trying too hard and apparently have missed the boat again, that’s not all bad considering that we have four sons to raise at this point and it does keep us rather busy in our personal lives as well a running two businesses. 

Amyn hadn’t been feeling well for several days and we were both thinking that she might be pregnant; however, the healers have told us that she is just exhausted and should take some time off.  Well, that can be arranged rather readily and I can make sure that my oldest son steps up a bit to take over the reins in Stormwind for a while next week.  Kaldor is a good boy and I know he has shown his mettle when he’s working and he definitely has the skill set to run a business with some outside help from his parents and other people.  I know that Amyn is as disappointed as I was with the news that we weren’t going to have another baby, however, we’ve both decided that it’s not the end of the world either.

We weren’t trying to have a baby when we conceived our boys, so, maybe, just maybe we should go back to that idea and just let the dice roll the way that they want. If we’re supposed to have other children, it will happen if not, then, we can always look at adoption if we still want to add to the household.  I know that we have more children than some people are able to have and maybe the Fates have decided that we can be happy with what we have.  I think we were getting to be rather obsessive with wanting another child and it was starting to take a toll on our bedroom pleasures, rather than enhancing them.  I’d much rather just enjoy being with my wife intimately without thinking about just procreation for the sake of it.  No, I’ve always enjoyed my wife’s physical attributes a whole lot more when we didn’t have that added pressure that we put on ourselves. So, we’re back to square one and we’re back to making “love” the way we want and when we want, not just to make a baby.

I’m sitting here, looking at my wife’s naked body lying there on the bed, the contrast of her skin and that long silver mane of hers contrasting against the sheets and that’s a sight that will never grow old to me.  The way her long legs seem to go on forever, her arms raised above her head…oh, I’m going to stop there or I will be in that bed with her and taking advantage of those other sweet things that are lying there exposed.

I’m a little bit more than concerned about Sollonne at this point.  I did some more investigating around here in Dalaran and she was definitely here in the city for a few days while I was off in Silvermoon getting that situation resolved.  Seems she did take a flight out of here to Ice Crown and that’s the last that anyone knows of her.  I’ve been searching in that area and found a place where it appears that there was some kind of battle that wasn’t scourge related.  Did she fall off of her mount for some reason, was it shot down, there was no evidence that indicated that it was even her except for a piece of armor that definitely looks like it has her design on it.  I found a cave not far away that has signs of it being inhabited by some people too; there were a couple of corpses in there that looked like Sol’s handiwork had been dealt on them.   I am wondering if these could possibly be the same cultists that she was tracking before and they somehow have taken her captive.

My biggest concern is that the only thing that I have gotten so far is that box in the mail with her braid in it and nothing more.  Not another word and it’s been a week. Has she been killed, are these people trying to lure me into a trap of some kind that was thwarted somehow.  So many questions left unanswered in my mind.  I will probably be going up that way again today to see if I can find anything else that might indicate what has happened.  I might ask Dawnglory to accompany me this time, maybe a fresh pair of eyes will pick up something that I’ve missed. 

Oh, it seems that we are going to have a houseguest this weekend.  Kaldor’s lady friend from Stormwind is going to be spending some time here in Dalaran.  He’s all excited about the prospect of having her meet his Mother and me too.  The only drawback that I can see is that she is that she is a human, which I can’t afford to say much about that because he is going to have to make his own decision about that.  He’s not much younger than I was when I first met Amyn and the race thing didn’t really play a role in how that turned out either.  I just don’t want to see him get hurt or repeat the same mistakes that I’ve made in my life.  I’m sure that everything will be okay and that she will be a lovely person regardless of the fact that she is a human.  Of course, she already knows about Kaldor’s parentage, so, it shouldn’t be that much of a shock for her to see that we’re of different races.  

I hope Agatha knows what humans like to eat.  She looked at me like I had lost my mind when I started asking her questions about food and what kind of delicacies that a human might expect at the dinner table.  I’m sure that Agatha will come up with some good meals that will be well received by Kal’s guest and the rest of us can sample something different for a change.  I’ve eaten some of the food in my travels but I’m not sure that it was fare that a human would normally partake in.  I guess I ought to route Kaldor out of bed and make sure that he has made the arrangements for that.  I know fruit would be a part of the diet; however, what else would this girl like?

I did have a bit of a chuckle last night when Kal was talking with his Mother and I because he wanted his Mother to stay in the guest house with the girl so that she could make sure that this girl’s reputation wasn’t sullied.  That tells me that he hasn’t taken her into his bed yet and he wants a chaperone for her.  I thought Amyn was going to choke on her glass of wine because she was trying not to laugh out loud with that request.  I suggested that either Agatha or possibly even Felaran might be a good choice for that sort of duty.  Felaran might make the best choice because she never sleeps; she’s a Death Knight and would definitely be up to protecting some strange girl’s virginity, after she got through laughing about it.  Oh well, I’m not going to worry about that right now, the girl won’t be arriving until later this afternoon anyway.   I suggested to Kal that he let the girl pick whomever she wants for that duty.

It seems strange to have your children growing up so fast; however, the clock doesn’t ever seem to stop grinding the years away like a river running over stones making them smoother with each passing decade.

I thought I heard Dawnglory in the kitchen and I think that he and I should make a quick run p to Ice Crown so that we can see if we can’t find anything else in regard to Sol’s disappearance.   We also need to discuss the disappearance of a certain rogue from the ranks of our employees in Orgrimmar; I don’t think anything has happened to the fellow, I think he just took off because he couldn’t handle the routine of our company.  I also need to find out his opinion of the new Ranger that we hired too, they seemed to have hit it off but I want to make sure that he is going to be in agreement with me that we will take the fellow slowly to start with.
