Well, I’ll have to admit that it was fun spending time with the family and all that but it almost feels like I have been released from jail for some misdemeanor when I head back through Orgrimmar to Panderia. Fuck! It was fun, however, I kept feeling like everyone was expecting me to do something that I apparently never did do.
I know what it was, I’m not that damned stupid. I think or I kind of know that Faendra was expecting more from me for the holiday than what I did for her as far as gifts went. No, I didn’t give her a ring, I had one in my bags but something just kept telling me not to stick my neck out that far. I did give her a jade necklace and some earrings that looked awesome on her with the dark green velvet gown she wore to dinner that night with the rest of the family. I don’t think I’m quite ready to settle down with that white picket fence and rugrats tripping you up when you walk from one room to the next. Fnor can handle it much better than I can because he was an old man when he was still young. I’m not ready to get married yet – there is so much more out there to see and people to meet. I’m not ready for those conversations that I hear some of the other married guys having with their wives -“Yes, Dear”, “No, Dear” and my favorite one of all time “Of course, Dear, you’re always right.” Nope, I’m just not ready for that yet. How can you tell someone that love that they are always right when you think they are dumb as a stick and couldn’t find their way out of a room if the doorknob wasn’t so obvious on the door.
I’ve always cared for her and I’ve always wanted to take her to bed, however, I don’t think I am quite ready to make that a permanent state of affairs just yet. If I was ready to settle down, I would more than likely take her as my wife, however, people have just got to understand that just because I want to sleep with someone doesn’t mean I want them tied to me forever, you know?
Besides, I’ve known Fae since she was just a little toddler and we’ve always been friends, she’s just become more desirable as she has grown up and I don’t think that her brother can even recognize that – she’s damned sexy and attractive and I’m sure that a lot of men would like to hit that. She’s intelligent, she’s fun to be around and she definitely is a good huntress, however, does that mean that I am madly in love with her and want to be tied to her for the rest of my life? Not yet, no, not yet.
Going through Orgrimmar on my way back to Panderia was fun this time. I ran into a few people that I hadn’t seen in a while, so, we decided to sit down and throw back a few drinks while we were waiting to get transport back to our stations. Yeah, there were a few girls there that were making goofy eyes at me and I tried my best to ignore that because after what I have been through in the last few days has put a bit of a damper on my libido. Of course, I picked up a few things before I headed back that seem to be a little hard to come by in Panderia, just some buckles that I don’t see often enough unless I go through the trouble of going through all of the pockets on the corpses that I run across – that’s just disgusting to even think about.
I thought about going to Silvermoon for an few hours and go to the jeweler where I ordered the ring that I had for Faendra and selling it back to him. Oh, I know, I’d take a major hit in the gold for doing that but it seemed like it might be a good idea. I did decide against that idea and just put it in my bank vault with all of my other crap. Who knows, I might change my mind one of these days and it would be handy to have that ring already made up. Right?
I’m sitting at Fnor’s farm right now and I can’t help but notice Kal’s Kaldorei girl working in his fields right now. Now, that’s one attractive lady, I don’t see why that kid is just pining after that little worgen girl in Stormwind. He was supposed to meet her for the holidays, however, I’m not sure that he actually did that or not. I just know that he was acting like some lovesick dopey elf for most of the time that I was around him. His Dad just said that he was sure that whatever happened would be okay with him because he’s not getting involved in any of it – I think that part of that was directed at me without him coming right out and saying that to me.
Oh well, I suppose I ought to head back to the command post and see what kind of mess has been done while we were gone. After all, I’m supposed to be second in command and all that crap. One thing I have noticed is that there seem to be a lot more people that are just kind of wandering by the farm since I got back and that bothers me a bit. Wonder why they are so curious all of a sudden – it might be that we’re just being watched since Fnor blew his cool and killed that dude. Oh yeah, the rumors were flying before we left anyway.
