It’s been a while since I have had an opportunity to write anything down or lacked the time and privacy to sit down and reflect on things. Kae and I are back in Halfhill for the time being and enjoying being on the farm together. After all, this is our home and the only place that we have lived together that was our own. It’s nice to be back home for a bit.
Things must have started winding down rather quickly for both factions in Draenor because most of us as Commanders of our Garrisons were told that we had to report for duty back on Azeroth. Well, we found out that while we were out rescuing people on Draenor, the Legion had started infiltrating Azeroth with a vengeance. I guess it became very apparent that we had a full-scale invasion going on and that all our troops were needed – both Horde and Alliance. Kae and I haven’t seen that much action yet, however, we know that we will be reassigned to another Sentinel group and sent on our merry way, just as we have done in the past. Neither of us is happy about the changes and I know that we will probably have to make quite a few adjustments.
Just when I started thinking that it was time for us to take our vows at the Moonwell in Darnassus and celebrate with the family, the Legion decided to take on our attention. I know I never have fought them in the past and they were a big shock to me when we landed on the Isle. I’ve seen a few things that were remotely resembling them in Tanaan, however, these are much more powerful and much bigger or they just seem bigger to me. I know that Kae had such high hopes for the vows, however, we both decided that it wouldn’t hurt to make a slight delay until we could find out what the plans are for our duties – I wish we could get out of this, however, I don’t think that there is a way. I don’t think that Mom or Dad could buy us out of the service at this point – all hands are needed.
Mom and Dad both got the same orders that Kae and I did, they took off to Nagrand to recharge their batteries as they laughingly referred to it. Kae and I are both old enough to know what they were going to do with that big house all to themselves and just a few servants around. Hey, I get it – it’s not too embarrassing to think of your parents doing the same things that we do even if they are old.
I guess that Kae and I could go ahead with our vows and keep the celebration rather low-key instead of having the celebration that we would have liked to have had. I wish that we could get the house back in Dalaran since the Horde are now allowed to have access to the city again. Our backyard would have been a perfect place to have the reception, if everything is still standing like it was before. I guess the house was damaged quite a bit when it was taken over for office spaces and barracks for the soldiers per my Mom. Mom said that Dad was already negotiating with the people in Dalaran to get the property back and doesn’t seem to care about the cost – he always did love that place. Maybe if I can talk Kae into waiting for a little while longer, we could still have the reception there or maybe just have it later. I don’t know, she seems rather sensitive about delaying things lately. I guess I need to sit down with her and have a long talk and find out what is bothering her.
I know that one of our neighbors isn’t happy with the situation in Halfhill right now because his family disappeared and he has been spending most of his time trying to find them. I know that we are all involved in finding out any information that we can about Romy and the two kids – we even have some of the people from the two companies looking for them too. Poor Dawnglory has never looked so bereft and old in his life. Poor man is just devastated. Of course, Romy’s family is trying to find her too. The last thing that Dawnglory heard from her was that she was going to Northrend to spend some time with the family up there and no one has seen or heard from her since then.
Well, looks like Kae and I are going to head out to one of our favorite places to do laundry – that’s the one thing we don’t have on the farm, a proper place to wash clothes. I don’t mind that it though because it gives us an excuse to get away from people for a while, fish and have a picnic amongst other things.
