I don’t know why Zippie sent a parcel to us here in Pandaria that needed to be delivered in Orgrimmar, however, I am going to let her know that it makes me very uncomfortable to go there. She could have sent one of her goblin friends that work for the company or her sister or Uncle, however, she chose to send it all the way out here to us and wanted it delivered quickly. She babbled on in her letter that there was no one else that could do it for her right now and it was for a good deal of money.
I didn’t even know that we were still making deliveries or even doing business with the people that are left in the city considering all of the things that have happened. I know we closed the business and now it’s in Silvermoon and what isn’t in Silvermoon is in Shattrath. I hope that she doesn’t get some wild hair and decide to try to send me to Dalaran because that is one place that I know that I won’t be welcomed with open arms.
I told Naton about the letter and the parcel and he said that he thought that I would be okay. He said that he has done some business there with his armor, however, things have changed quite a bit since we were there last. He told me to not meet anyone’s gaze, keep my head down, make my delivery and collect the money and get out of there as quickly as possible. Okay, I did follow his advice although it was very hard for me to do.
I had heard that Garrosh had the Trolls under guard in their quarter, however, I didn’t know that it was as bad it was. I had wanted to pick up some wild rice from there because it would be good with some of the dishes that I have learned to make here in Pandaria. I was shocked that the poor Trolls are under lock and key and have Kor’kon guarding them all of the time. They are prisoners and are only allowed to do a minimal amount of things. I tried to buy some rice and a Kor’kon guard told me that I could be arrested for consorting with the enemy. Well, I didn’t make my purchase because I didn’t want to get locked up there in Orgrimmar.
I decided that I would try to buy some rice from the Tauren quarter because I was almost sure that I had seen some there before I left for Pandaria. I was shocked to see Kor’kon guards everywhere in the quarter. It’s not as heavily guarded as the Troll area, however, it did make me realize that it would be very easy for Garrosh to order a full scale slaughter of our people in the city. It almost made me cry when I saw how things were – our people are not happy in Orgrimmar and I wish they would leave before it’s too late. I know that I was very frightened the whole time I was there.
I can’t believe that Zippie had me deliver a parcel to the goblin engineers. It would have been so much easier for her Uncle to deliver that stuff or even her sister. I have no idea what was in the package, however, the goblin engineer seemed very excited to have it and even tipped me a copper. Well, you know how goblins are, at least he gave me something to go along with his thanks.
Even though Naton told me to keep my head day and not meet anyone’s gaze, I wanted to see some of my old friends in the Tauren quarter, my old teacher, for example. I went to where he usually stands and I was surprised at how empty the place was. Where our people would normally gather to talk and to tell stories to one another and some of the younger bulls would go to show off their new armor, there was no one there. No one was enjoying the sunshine and no one seemed to be very sociable. I did find my teacher and he was very happy to see me although he told me that I should get out of Orgrimmar as quickly as I had come in.
Now, I got another errand to run while I was there talking with him. He took a carefully concealed letter from his belt and told me that I had to deliver it to Baine in Thunderbluff. I was really worried when he gave me the letter because I didn’t want to get arrested by the guards for something and have them find it on me, they might think I was some kind of spy. I took the letter and left – I did go to Thunder Bluff and I did deliver it without seeing Mom and the boys.
As I was starting to wonder about how I was going to make the trip to Silvermoon without being gone for several days I happened to see a Forsaken with a very familiar gait and a very familiar lion. It was Hazey Smythe. We never had socialized all that much when we were in Orgrimmar, however, I’ve always considered her a good sort and one that could be trusted. I asked her how she was doing and she looked at me like I had lost my mind and replied quite succinctly “Still dead” and we both laughed.
I told her of my problem with getting the money back to Zippie in Silvermoon and she said that she would take it for me because she had planned on taking a trip to the Undercity to visit with her sister and it would be very little trouble for her to continue on to Silvermoon to make the delivery for me. She had a few things that she needed to deliver herself, so, it wasn’t inconvenient for her. At least she was able to take care of that problem for me and I trust her with the money because she’s been with the company for quite a long time too. She laughingly aid that she thought that Garrosh was afraid of the Lady and that he wouldn’t want to step on her toes. So, the travel from Orgrimmar to the Undercity is still open and it’s just a short portal from the Undercity to Silvermoon. Whew, I’m glad she was there because I was really afraid to make the trip myself, I’m not your warring kind of cow, I like farming.
When I finally got back to Halfhill, I told Naton of all that I had seen and he just shook his head and looked sad. He said that he had seen the guards in the Troll quarter, however, the last time that he had gone to the Tauren quarter, there were no guards. We both think that things with Garrosh have gotten even worse than they were when we were in the service to the Horde. Let’s just say that we are both happy that the Boss was able to get us released from that and we are working for Morningstar Enterprises. Now, we just hope that nothing goes awry with the Regent Lord and the Blood Elves.
Oh, I had better get busy and make dinner for Naton and I because he actually said that he was hungry. He doesn’t eat much but when he does, he makes up for all of the time that he hasn’t. At least he’s trying some of the new food that have been able to get at the market, he says he likes Jogu’s chicken and dumplings and wishes that it wasn’t so pricey.
