Oh, I wish that the war would just stop here in Pandaria. I know that Naton and I are very happy with the situation that we have with the Morningstar’s and we don’t have to worry about doing any kind of military service any longer, however, it still makes me feel bad for the ones that are still stuck in the war machine.
I know that today after I did my chores here at the farm, I had time to go down and visit with my baby dragon. Oh, she’s growing up so fast and it hardly seems like yesterday since I hatched her from her egg. She’s so blue and her eyes just seem to glow and swirl around madly when she’s happy. I just enjoy standing there watching her over the fence.
Today was really exciting for my little girl and for me. Well, I think she’s a girl; it’s so hard to tell. We actually got to take a couple of short rides for our training, which means that it won’t be long before I can take her out for longer periods of time. I go down there almost every single afternoon and spend a couple of hours with her when I can. Naturally, there are always chores down there to be done too because it seems like they don’t have enough people in the area to get everything done. That’s okay; I don’t mind a little extra work.
I know that since we got away from the military, Naton and I have really enjoyed being in Pandaria a lot more. Oh sure, we work hard on the farm, however, we also get to go wandering around the countryside exploring. This is truly a beautiful land and I hope the war stops before they ruin it all.
Oh, we never forget the dangers that can still be lurking out there and sometimes we have stumbled upon Sha-infested beasts that we have put out of their misery. At least the hides are good although we carefully dispose of the meat so that nothing else will get touched with the taint. Poor animals act so miserable and not like they normally would behave.
Oh, we’ve gone fishing; hunting and have even tried some of that archeology stuff that Zippie was so crazy about back in Orgrimmar. It’s a good way to bring in extra money that we can use to fix up the farm. The faster we get the farm fixed up, the faster we can get Mom and the boys up here to live too.
I know that it felt good to be able to go home to visit for a few days and I did run into some of my old friends there and I think that everyone is upset about how things have happened in Orgrimmar. Well, it never was a great place to start with, however, since the Kor’kon have started standing guard over everyone and everything, it sure doesn’t make you want to stay there for very long at all. Supposedly all of the construction is finished and it is still just as nosy and dirty as it ever was. Naton and I didn’t spend a whole lot of time there at all even if we did stop at the Inn for some mead before we headed over to the Bluffs.
What is really weird about the whole thing is that everyone knows that there is a rebellion going on and some of the people act as if there is nothing happening and then you have the groups that are speaking openly of overthrowing Hellscream. Well, we just stay away from the people talking about that sort of thing because we don’t want to end up in one of those prison camps that I am sure are out there somewhere. Yes, Mom is right, if we don’t say anything and keep our heads tucked down, we can get through the city fairly quickly and avoid any trouble, which is what we will be doing anytime we go through there again.
At least now we can come and go as we want and we’ve even seen Mr. Morningstar a few times in the market place and he is always nice enough to stop and chat with us a bit even though he is a busy man. The last time that we talked he said that he was thinking about opening an office here in Pandaria, which wouldn’t be a bad thing from my perspective because that means that we could get our contracts and deliver our goods here in Pandaria instead of going back to Kalimdor. I think it would be awesome although Naton kind of wrinkled his nose at the idea.
I can’t say the last time that I recall things being so pleasant for us because it was so long ago. I just hope that we can avoid the troubles here in Pandaria and just enjoy our lives as the Earth Mother intended. I know that I am thankful every day that we are free from having to fight this fight that none of us really believes in. From what I can see it’s one man’s greed that is driving the whole thing and with the people around that want to remove him from power, I’m sure that it will end soon. I know that pray fervently every night that the war will end and our people can be as they were – I don’t even care who the new Warchief might be over the Horde, I just pray that it is someone that has more intelligence and isn’t one that feels compelled to kill everything that isn’t an Orc.
Oh well, time for me to get started on the farm chores so I can go see my little dragon this afternoon. Oh she is going to miss me for a couple of days because Naton and I are going to go do some mining for ore so that we can open up the forge full tilt to all the people in Halfhill. I know that Naton is anxious to get busy with that – he enjoys working at the forge and he enjoys talking to the people that happen to stop by for business or just to talk. He really is very sociable for a Death Knight and people don’t seem to fear him like they used too in the past.
