Well, it’s been a while since I have written, however, that’s the way that things have gone since I have been held prisoner here in Draenor. I want to go home to be with Romy and the kids, I’m so damned homesick that there are times that I would love to just sit down and drink myself into oblivion so that some of the pain will go away. I won’t do that, I’ve been down that road before and it always ends up the same place – nowhere.
Yes, I’m a Dad for a second time and we have a beautiful baby boy named Romar – kind of a strange name, however, it’s something that suits him already. Romy says that he is definitely a combination of the two of us in personality and looks – hope he takes after his Mom more than me though – I was not a good example to follow as a child. It doesn’t sound like the birth was all that difficult this time and things are already settling back to normal. I wonder how my baby girl is feeling with the arrival of this new baby? Hope she doesn’t feel like she isn’t loved as much as ever. Oh, I’m sure that Romy is making sure that she doesn’t feel left out or anything, however, I do know how a new baby seems to get all of the attention. I think that the Winter Veil gifts were well received and truly liked. I think that I should start sending Mirrin a few things now and then too – no, I’m not trying to buy her love, I just want her to know how special she is to me and to her Mother.
I’ve already made the decision that if Romy and I have any more children, I am going to be home for everything. I know that being away all of this time has definitely put the crimp on things as far as being together and being around so that I’m not forgotten. I hope that Mirrin realizes that her Daddy loves her just as much as ever and misses her so much.
Fnor is the lucky one, at least he has his wife and one of his sons here in Draenor although I am sure that it is not as easy for him to see them frequently with as much work that we have to do to keep these damned Garrisons running properly. No, I never wanted anything to do with ships and I still don’t, however, the damned fools in Orgrimmar thought that the Commanders of the Garrisons should take on that role as well. I’m a bloody Ranger, not some wanker seaman strutting around on a boat, ship, or whatever in the hell they are. I don’t like them and I always get seasick when I board the damned things. I was meant to be on land.
I thought that they might have given us some time off during Winter Veil, however, the bastards in Orgrimmar don’t want to let any of us leave for fear that we won’t come back. To be honest, if I ever get to leave Draenor, the only way that they will get me back here is in chains. This is not what we signed up for. I realize the time thing somewhat, however, what does it matter, we did what we came to do and we’re done – let us go the fuck home. I know that we’re in the mop up stages and that we’re running into some new things that are going to cause us trouble here in Draenor – what about some of this stuff slipping through the cracks in time and landing back on Azeroth? Has any thought anything about that? I know I worry about some of the things that I have seen and I’m wondering if the higher ups have been seeing the same things that I have – it looks like the war in Outland or have they forgotten the demons and the history that was written during that time period? I think we’re in for something, things do not go quietly into the night once they have been disturbed, there is always something else that will happen whether we intended it or not.
I know that Romy writes as if everything is going just fine in Halfhill and I hope that she isn’t holding anything back from me. I’m worried and from what I have seen lately, there may be some cause for concern. Maybe the citizens aren’t even aware of what is going on too, that seems to be more like the case – I know how these political things are kind of shoved under a desk until they can’t hide it anymore and then it’s up to us to fix it again. Look what happened with Garrosh – that was one crazy Orc and he got away with things for years before someone realized that the fellow wasn’t playing with a full deck. I can tell you right now that the soldiers already had that figured out a long time ago. I remember all too well how things were handled in Northrend before Arthas was finally taken of – so secretive are these political types. Soldiers live the life and they aren’t stupid, they know what is going on.
I remember all too well what it was like growing up in an orphanage in Shattrath. I remember the things that happened in Outland when I was just a boy and how long it seemed to go on. Now, I’m sitting here in Draenor and seeing some of the same things come to pass, is history meant to repeat itself over and over again and are we supposed to be totally oblivious to it? How fucking stupid would that be?
Oh well, I’m just making myself into a cranky bastard because I miss my family and I don’t like being held prisoner here in Draenor. I know that it can’t last forever and that I will get to see Romy and the kids soon, I hope.
