I’ll admit that I am still sitting on my arse in Silvermoon getting a few things dealt with. Zippie has done a great job with the warehouse and business here and seems to be anxious to get a look at the establishment in Shattrath. Can’t say that I am disappointed that she thinks that she can handle both places for a while until business starts to build up in Shattrath again like I suspect that it will.
I am a little proud of myself this morning because I actually was able to fill two of the bounty hunting contracts from the clients in Undercity just by walking down through the Bazaar. One fellow literally ran right into me and we talked briefly – he told me his name and I had him covered right there. The second one, I was sitting in the bar and another fellow joined me for a drink and told me his name – he was nabbed that quickly too. No muss, no fuss, no scene. These were just petty thefts which told me that they might have been harder if the people that were involved were a little brighter. I sent Zednick over to do the collections and to take the fellows back to Undercity to face the music.
One of the things this morning at breakfast is that I noticed is that Fae never meets my eyes. We never make real eye contact at all. That tells me that she is already plotting and planning stuff. When I think about it though, she hasn’t been able to look me square in the face for quite a while. She was like this for a while when Felaran joined us in Dalaran, however, when I think back on it, she has been this way since Amyn and I got married in the Sindorei fashion. I know that there is a good deal of resentment of my wife and even, yes, jealousy, however, it is just another thing that I have noticed since she and I have spent some time together. I know that it almost breaks my heart to think that Amyn and Fnar may be right about her – I’m just a means to an end for her and that’s the only relationship that we have left. She’s in it for the money and not for the love of family. I know that my parents would be deeply saddened to see this happen because they only wanted what was best for their daughters and I suppose that Fae’s exposure to Silvermoon growing up may have put the nail in the coffin. Oh well, I’m not going to dwell on it because I think it might be too late to even try to change her now.
She has never said she was truly sorry that I got ill after our argument the other day. She is acting as if it never happened and is following the guidelines that I laid out for her, however, I can tell in her manner of speaking that she wants to say so much more about things regarding the business and my family. Well, I do have Zippie keeping an eye on her in regard to the business and sometimes here at the house, however, I think that I will have a talk with Agatha about it as well, she has an eagle eye for things that are not quite right.
Speaking of Agatha, I just realized how long she has been working for me without complaint. When I first went to Dalaran and could afford a housekeeper, she was the one that hired. Her loyalty to me and the family have been astounding. From what I can gather from some of the conversations that I have had with her, she has no family to speak of and she’s never married. Her not ever being married surprises me because she would make some lucky man very happy. I know that she is a very attractive Sindorei woman and there were rumors flying around Dalaran for quite a while about some kind of relationship that might have happened between the two of us. To be honest, I thought about it a couple of times, however, I always follow the rule of not dipping my quill in the company ink. She’s been loyal to me and a steadfast friend when I was at my lowest points in my life. Let’s just say that I just gave her a sizeable increase in salary for the many years of service.
I told her about the plans of opening the house in Nagrand again and I would appreciate it if she could recommend someone to take charge down there. Her immediate response was that she would go with the family to Nagrand if that was where we would be spending most of our time and it would be far easier for her to find a replacement for the houses here in Silvermoon. That did have some merit because it would make my life a lot easier with the transition.
Oh these last couple of nights have had my head and body filled with dreams of my Sentinel. I am not inclined to have these wild erotic dreams, however, I think my body is telling me that it is time for me to get back into the arms of my lover. Last night was a pleasant dreams as far as dreams go and I did wake up feeling very satiated, which is surprising since I was definitely alone in bed.
Someday, in the future, possibly in my lifetime, my family will be able to come to Silvermoon with me. A man is allowed to dream, isn’t it. A foolish dream, however, it is one that crosses my mind frequently. I would love to show my sons the beauty of the city since it’s recovery from the Scourge Invasion, I would like to show them where I grew up and show them the places where their Father actually studied. You can say what you will about the Sindorei, the vanity notwithstanding, we are a very proud race and have fought hard to maintain our existence even with treachery occurring in both factions.
Well, my bags are almost packed for the trip back to Shattrath and to my love. I am looking forward to seeing her again and to spend some more time just feeling like the old married man that I very much am. I think Pan will be happy to escape the confines of Silvermoon too, he and Fae’s cat do not get on well even though the cat is one of his offspring. What can I say? Dawnglory’s cat has had several litters with Pan being the proud Father.
