Well, I finally made it to Pandaria and I must say that I am exhausted even if I am already dead. I can’t tell if Hazey is really all that happy to see me, however, you never know with her because she can be a real sourpuss. I guess that she is a bit miffed that I didn’t send her word that I was on my way because she apparently made a trip to Orgrimmar only to find out that I was gone and the locks had been changed on the house, which she got the new key from the landlord, so, it shouldn’t have really mattered I guess.
I honestly don’t understand her sometimes, however, she was like this before the plague and we died. She always thought that everyone should be able to read her mind and know what she was doing and we should act accordingly. I couldn’t do it then and I sure can’t do it now. Oh well.
At least she was at home when I finally made my way to Halfhill. What a journey it was to begin with and then to have to tromp through the Jade Forest with a bunch of Rangers that kept insisting that I follow orders. I’m not in the Rangers, or at least I wasn’t in the Rangers when I left Orgrimmar and I haven’t signed any papers or anything of that nature. Sure there were some dangerous spots to go through what with the wildlife wanting to eat your face and sometimes we ran into some overzealous Alliance folks that really didn’t want us passing through their area. I have some embroidery that I am going to have to start all over again too because some idiot shot my bag and the arrow tore my cloth and design. I almost cried. I can at least mend the bag a bit so that it won’t look like it came from some throw-away place like they have in Orgrimmar – used equipment, bags and the like.
It was very exciting seeing Pandaria for the first time, I never dreamed that it was going to be so large and I have only seen just a small portion of it so far. I know that the fellow that was in charge of the Rangers was getting a bit upset with me because I just kept asking him I couldn’t get transportation to Halfhill, I wasn’t really into this hiking, fighting and camping thing at all. He looked at me like I had lost my mind and said a few choice words which I took as a “no” to my requests. I was with these people for five days, no wonder all of my belongings go delivered to Hazey’s house before I got there and I didn’t even see a mailbox where I could drop a letter mailed off to tell her – not to mention, I might have gotten shot or something if I wanted to stop long enough to write a letter. I hope I’m not in the Rangers because I have no intentions of going back to that sort of stuff – the very idea of having to sleep in those tents with all of those people and the constant chattering, bickering and let’s not forget about the hair, constant brushing of hair and the girls were constantly fighting with each other over which fellow was the best looking in the group. Frankly, I didn’t care, I just wanted to get to my destination as soon as possible.
We finally found a town called Dawn’s Blossom or something like that. It wasn’t a town but it was the closest that I had seen that might be called a town and wasn’t just a collection of huts and such. The fellow in charge told all of us that we had a couple of days off and we were to report back to the place at the end of that time – I’m not reporting back to anything, I’m not a Ranger. I hope I’m not a Ranger, how do I find out if I got drafted or something without my knowledge. I did sign the thing, a kind of contract thing, before I got on the ship that said I was loyal to the Horde and bunch of other things and I did take the Oath to uphold the Horde – I had to do that or they wouldn’t let me on the boat. They didn’t give me any new weapons or gear or anything, so, I’m just using what I had brought with me that I thought I might need while I’m in Pandaria. I’ll have to get Hazey to check on this for me because I don’t want to go back to that group.
All of my material and patterns arrived before I did and at least Hazey put them in a place where they wouldn’t get wet, even if it was under the house which is kind of damp but not enough to where it would damage anything, I’ll move it all into the house later today to make sure.
I think Hazey was kind of happy to see me, she even made some food for us and I will admit that I thought it was amazing. I haven’t ever had anything like tiger steak before, the noodles were wonderful, she said that they were things that she could buy at the market place fairly easy since it isn’t that far from the farm. The house looks very nice even if it is rather small and cramped for the two of us, however, I think that we’ll do okay, or I hope we will.
Hazey said the new Morningstar warehouse will be opening in a couple of weeks so we won’t have to make the trip back to Silvermoon or rely on the mail to get our stuff to Zippie and get our money. I’m happy to hear that, although, I will have to go back to Silvermoon to see some of my customers and do the final fittings on a couple of robes that I hadn’t finished before I left.
She asked me about my trip her and I told her what had happened with the Rangers and that I was afraid I might be one and all she did was shake her head. I didn’t have a copy of the document that I had signed, so, she is going to go to the Ranger camp in Krasarang to see if they have record of me as being a recruit. She asked me what the ship looked like and how many people were on it and I told her and she told me that I had taken a troop transport, not a civilian ship and the papers that I signed were probably enlistment papers of some kind. Now, I feel like a fool, however, I don’t want to go back to the Rangers and I voiced my concern over it. Hazey said that she would get in touch with Zippie and let her know what happened and we can get a letter from Mr. Morningstar that would get me out of it, maybe.
Well, at least I can stay here at the farm for a few days and kind of hide out if the Rangers start looking for me. I’m not a soldier kind of girl, I am not even that great of a shot with my gun either, that’s why Hazey got so mad at me in Orgrimmar. I like to sew and I like to do my enchanting from a nice comfortable place, not out in the jungle. Oh, I hope we can get this fixed.
