The winter winds are already starting here in Stormwind. The chill in the air is enough to let you know that the snow won’t be too terribly far behind and that is just one of the things that is telling me that there is change in the air.
My poor Sindorei is probably freezing to death in his new command area that he wrote me about. Seems he got called back to duty and sent off on some mission for the Horde. Poor fellow never seems to take a break from his “duty” and I can understand that because I will be reporting back for duty soon too, it seems. There is always some kind of threat to the existence of Azeroth looming on the horizon and it was stupid of me to think that these times would be any different.
I don’t know exactly how all of this has come to pass, however, I do know that if they had killed that fool of a Warchief, this wouldn’t’ be going on now. To let that insane creature escape was the worst thing that could have happened. The people had him in their hands and he got away to start more trouble. Some kind of draconic time travel thing, that’s what people are saying and it makes me want to throw-up. I’ve always been a bit afraid of the different dragons and have always given them a wide berth especially after the experiences we all have had with Deathwing when he was running rampant and trying to destroy everything and everyone on the planet.
I know that in times of war and strife that our business is going to be showing another huge profit because that’s just how it works. Import and Export – buying and selling to both factions and we still have Shattrath going great guns now. Things won’t change for us financially other than getting more money in to go along with more employees and growing like there is no tomorrow. I’m glad that my Sindorei was smart enough to set his businesses up the way that he did so that we can be flexible at all times. I know that it sounds terrible, however, war is always profitable.
I know that I was taken aback when I got the letter delivered here at the warehouse in Stormwind after it had gone to Pandaria first. If I had gotten the letter in a timely manner, I might have been able to spend some time with my love before he left for the front again. Now, he’s there and I’m still here, although that will change in the next month because I report for duty with the Sentinels again – I got my letter too. Seems we’re all being called back in with this new threat. I don’t know if Kaldor and Kaelendra have been forced back into the service again, however, I am pretty sure that they will probably be joining me before too much longer. This is going to make Kal very unhappy because I know that he loves Kae in his own way, however, he’s not too fond of his duties as a Scout for the Sentinels and all that that entails. Poor fellow, I wish that there was some way that I could make that easier for him.
Oh, I do know one way that might help Kal with his issues and I think that I will bring it up with him when I go to Pandaria tomorrow. I am going to suggest that he and Kal take their vows at the Moonwell in Darnassus before they report back in for duty. I know that the mated couples are usually kept together most of the time and the “services” required from the Scouts is strictly up to how the commanders deem it – they usually don’t force the issues if the couple are truly dedicated to one another as they should be, since it’s mated for life. I’ll talk to him and see what his feelings are. I know that he was waffling the last time I talked with him and I just had to tell him that not all relationships are as crazy as his Father’s and mine.
If he happens to get Kae pregnant, that might buy him some extra time as well as relieving Kae from the burden of serving until after my grandchild is born. That sounds funny, a grandchild. I would have to insist that they leave the baby with my parents in Dolonaar since that is where my two youngest sons are going to be staying again. I want them out of the city as quickly as possible – as for Vashlan, he is still working on his studies, however, he may get called in for service – a good battle mage is needed for portals and things of that nature. When I spoke to Vashlan about the possibility of his getting drafted into this mess, he wasn’t too keen on it, however, I know that he will do his duty if needed.
Now, I just have to sit here and start putting plans together for my side of the company too. I know that Maggie will probably be staying in Stormwind a lot more since she has taken on a lover in Darnassus – that Lagn fellow. She doesn’t know that I know about it, I’m sure, I’ve just noticed how often she takes the boat and how long she stays – plus, she acts totally contented for a few days when she gets back. I’m happy that she finally found a man that she feels comfortable with because I was getting very nervous about her being in the apartments with Vashlan alone a lot of the time. Vashlan is very much like his Father and has had numerous lovers in the last few months, however, he is being discrete about it and hasn’t brought any of them back to the apartments like he was doing before he and I had our discussion.
I will still have to get a proper manager for the warehouses in Shattrath and I think that I am going to let Maggie deal with that because she can find someone that she likes working with. I know that she absolutely can’t stand Zippie because of how goblins are. Well, if Zippie is doing a good job for Morningstar Enterprises and my Sindorei is happy with her performance, I’m not rocking the boat because of Maggie. Now, to find someone that won’t mind working with a goblin is going to be the issue, maybe one of the little gnomes that I have seen hanging around here of late. I’ll talk to Maggie.
Well, I know that it is getting later this morning than what I had planned when I started writing this and there are a lot of things that I want to get done today because I do want some time to spend with my boys and my parents before I have to report back in for active duty.
