Well, I think that half of Morningstar Enterprises has moved to Pandaria in the last few weeks. I’ve run into quite a few of the people that I used to see in Orgrimmar frequently when I had to go there to drop off the stock we’d accumulated and to pick up more contracts.
I’ll admit that I was really surprised to see one of Forsaken here in the market at Halfhill. Seems she got shanghaied into the service when she was trying to deliver her stock to Silvermoon. Well, I know how that can happen because Maha and I both were surprised at getting sent to Pandaria for our military service. It all turned out well because we were able to get out of the military and buy a farm. I told her to get in touch with the Boss and he would do the same for her, maybe. I know I was really kind taken aback because her sister wasn’t with her, however, I guess she has stayed behind in the Undercity. Those two were like bookends, you never saw one without the other.
Maha and I are really enjoying having our younger brother up here with us in Halfhill. You would think that he had died and gone to heaven with the way that he carries on about Pandaria. We have both had to temper our laughter when we stop and realize that he has been stuck in Mulgore with Mom and Tahfal while we have had a chance to see a bit more of the world than he has. He’s never been to Northrend, which we will try to remedy so that he can see what we are talking about when talk about Dalaran. When Mom went to Dalaran that one time, she had gone with Tahfal to meet some girl’s friend up there.
Well, I can scrap that last paragraph and start anew.
Guess who showed up at the house in Halfhill unannounced? Mom!! Guess she just couldn’t stand the thoughts of all of us having so much fun and she could only hear about it from what we told her. I know I was more than pleasantly surprised when she came knocking on the door. I was busy at my forge and had just taken a short break or I might not have heard her. I know that she was really laughing hard when I came poking my head out from under the house where I have my forge and anvil for the moment – I’m still working on the building where it will reside permanently.
I think the poor old soul actually had tears of joy in her eyes to see me. I know that my sister is sure going to be surprised when she gets home because she now has a roomy to share the bed with until we can make some other changes. I think we just need to add on to the house to be honest because it’s like people come to visit and they kind of forget to leave. Of course, I know that it is going to be fun having Mom here. The poor thing was exhausted when she got here, that was one heck of a journey for her to take all by herself, however, she said that she didn’t want to ask Tahfal to bring her here and then have to go back. He is still working on his studies as a Paladin and she didn’t want him to miss any of his training or classes and fall behind the other Light Walkers.
Luckily, I was able to scrounge up some food to feed her before I sent her off to bed. Maha had made some wonderful soup and left it simmering on the stove. I even sat there and had some while Mom and I talked. She is just as amazed and bewildered at the side of Pandaria. She really hasn’t gotten out of Mulgore that much either so she and Nahai are going to be making Maha and I a bit crazy wanting to do the tourist thing, however, I’d much rather do that than to let them get into any kind of trouble on their own.
Ah well, I suppose I ought to clean up the dishes and get back to my forge. I have so many orders for armor that it’s a good thing that I don’t have to sleep much, however, I will have be even more cognizant of the hours that I keep now since Nahai and Mom are staying with us for the time being.
