After going through the hellfire of making Kae angry at me the last time and having her leave was enough for me to reconsider a few things that I have been doing in the past few months. To be honest, I thought that she was gone for good because I had made promises that I didn’t keep and I know that it hurt her deeply because I could see the sadness in her eyes as well as the anger when she left. I’m just happy that we are back together and I hope that we can put the past behind us without too much trouble. I do know that there will always be a shadow on our relationship though because once you violate the rules, some of that trust is gone.
I know that my Mom was none too pleased with me as well because I had to go into Stormwind to get the repairs done to my armor after my last escapade. I didn’t think twice about putting it on the company’s accounts either because it is a practice that I have always done. I suppose that the smithy’s apprentice went to the office to make sure that it was okay to go over the price limit that was normally the case for people using the account.
The next thing I know, there is my Mother standing next to my table at the Blue Recluse where Vashlan and I had gone to have a few drinks and some dinner before I went back to Pandaria after picking up my repaired armor. I could tell that she was angry just by the way that she was standing there with hands on her hips and her eyes were definitely steely. Vash and I asked her to join us for a drink and that’s when she started talking to me in very clipped sentences. There was no scene, no loud shouting, which I might have been able to endure a bit better, however, the low conversation carried quite an impact.
I guess that Magdamia got the notice from the blacksmith and hot-hoofed to wherever my Mom was in the building and off the went to the blacksmith to see the armor before the repairs were done. So Mom saw the damages, the acid burns as well as a few deeply scored areas which really upset her quite a bit, however, she approved the repairs and set off to find me, which she did.
I explained to her what was going on and the way that her mouth kept popping open and closed she almost made me start laughing because she looked very much like a fish out of water. Yes, I was involved in some pretty strange stuff and we had overcome the adversary without loss of life, however, we all sustained damages of some sort or another. I was intelligent enough not to start laughing because I might have ended up wearing the pewter tankards that were on the table. One does not laugh at my Mother unless she is intentionally being funny and you know it. She did let me know that in the future that any wear and tear above and beyond the normal wear and tear should be paid for out of my own funds unless it was company related.
Of course, she was all ears when I told that Kae had left me for a time due to my activities with my friends and that she had come home. I think Mom almost said “I told you so” a couple of times, however, she refrained from doing that because Vashlan was sitting there being all ears. I was a little bit put out that Mother insisted that we discuss these things in front of my brother, however, I can also see that Mom was using that as a training tool for Vashlan too since he has been misbehaving a little bit recently.
I know after the discussion was had and my Mom’s opinion got put in the proper place, like right between my ears, I told them that I wasn’t going to spend the night in Stormwind and would be heading back to Halfhill as soon as my armor was finished.
I’ll admit that it felt strange for me not to go to the Pig to see how my friends were doing and to see what was going on, however, I decided that I had better forego that thought for a while because it has caused me enough trouble in the last few months and that it was about to cause me to lose the one thing that I hold very dear and that is Kaelendra. Yep, I’m going to toe the mark for a while and build up the trust again so that Kae will feel better and so will I. No, I’m not caving in to Kae’s wants and desires, I’m doing what is right to keep our relationship together. I’m still my own man and will do what I think is the right thing to do, however, in the future, I won’t make promises that I can’t keep.
