I am really in a state of shock to see Mom up here in Pandaria. I never thought in a million years that she would have the nerve and/or courage to make the trek up here, however, there she sits on the front steps of the farm and just soaking in the sunshine. I know that Naton and Maha were surprised when I showed up unannounced, however, I would say that they are more than shocked to have Mom come up as well. We never thought that she would leave the confines of Thunder Bluff long enough to really make the journey. She’s been telling us for years that she is too old to go out adventuring, however, I guess that she changed her mind.
Now, my brother and sister have two tourists to contend with as well as two crazy druids. Mom really likes the flying up here in Pandaria as much as I do, we can just catch the air and float for a long ways without being tired either. I taught Mom how to swoop in when she sees an herb and she’s got the hang of it pretty well now – she did do a few snout smashes the first few times but nothing makes you learn faster than pain sometimes.
I think Mom and I both have fallen in love with the Jade Forest so far because of how green everything is and how many herbs we have been able to gather. Of course, Mom is having more fun making new inks that she got the recipes for in the Vale and creating new glyphs and inscriptions. She keeps telling me that she is old, however, when she keeps learning things, it makes her feel young and won’t let her mind drift away into senility like some her old friends had happen. I can see her point, however, she acts like she has found some kind of amazing youth serum up here.
Oh, the embarrassing thing is that my Mom loves to hang out in the market in Halfhill just talking with people and I even caught her flirting with one of the Bulls up there. That was embarrassing to see your Mom act like she had the intelligence of a gnat when she was trying to be girlish at the same time. The Bull seemed to like her a lot and that has me worried now – what if? Well, what if she decides that she likes someone up here and decides to hook-up? Oh my, that really kind of makes me more than nervous and I can imagine that Naton and Maha would have a raging fit. I suppose that I ought to think about it differently, however, it’s always been Mom and us – to add another adult into the mix would really make for some interesting times.
I hope that Tahfal isn’t too upset with being left alone in Thunder Bluff with the responsibility of taking care of the house and Mom’s garden. I don’t think that she will stay here for a long time, however, I suppose if she goes back home, I should go with her to help out too. I can’t have my baby brother thinking that he’s an orphan since we’ve all taken off like this. He has his studies to keep him busy and I think that he will be fine for a while, however, I know how I felt when Maha left and then, shortly thereafter, Naton went too. It was lonely and the Earth Mother knows that I have always been the real friendly one of the group. I like people and I like to play pranks.
Mom says that we ought to help Naton and Maha more around the farm and we should be the ones that take the trips to Silvermoon now and again too, just so that Naton and Maha have some free time to get to know some more of the people up here. Well, I can get where Mom is going with this too – the more people they know, the more people that we’ll get to know too – I like that part.
I saw a girl in the market the other day that I’d like to get to know a bit better too. She had the most beautiful blue eyes and the way that she walked just had me mesmerized. Sure, I might have met her a long time ago in Thunder Bluff because she looked real familiar. I would have introduced myself to her there in the market but I was so busy staring at her that I fell over a bunch of barrels that were stacked next to one of the stalls – I didn’t think it too wise to introduce myself to someone after falling on my face and getting soaked with what I hope was beer – it smelled like some beer, however, it also smelled like something else. Nothing like making a fool of myself, yeah!
