Well, I finally got some much needed time off for good behavior – that’s truly a joke, it just amounted to some major sucking up and trying to act like I was happy with what I was doing. I have been in Pandaria for several months and haven’t had any time off due to the fact that I have had personality conflicts with some of my peers, not really my peers, and some of the higher ups. Who would have thought that they expected more of me because of my brother’s reputation. I’m not my brother and I doubt that I will be stupid enough to stay in the Rangers as long as he has either.
I got to head into Halfhill and I have been just hanging around in the market place trying to find out what information I can about Dawnglory. Yes, he does live here and he does have a woman and a baby, which I already knew, however, people aren’t really all that forthcoming with the exact location of his farm. Somehow, thinking of my beautiful Sindorei digging in the dirt just doesn’t fit with what I know of him. He’s too sophisticated for that sort of thing, however, being with that woman might have changed some of his ideals and his pride too. I have the next five days off and if I have to travel down every lane and goat path, I’ll do that too because I will find him and I will talk to him and tell him what a mistake he is making with his life.
I have also heard the rumors of this new problem that has developed in the Blasted Lands and I hope that they don’t yank my unit out of Pandaria and ship us off there. If they do try to do that, I will be resigning or buying my way out so that I can stay here in Pandaria until I make that man see reason and marry me. I have some money of my own saved up, plus, I don’t think that my brother will hold a grudge long enough to refuse me some help if I ask for it and it concerns his best friend too. I’m just marking my time and waiting for the right moment to talk to him. I know he’s here and I know that he and that woman frequent the market with their brat too, so, I’ll just sit here and bide my time until I see that golden-haired man that I know so well makes his appearance.
No, I am not happy being here in the role that I had to take in order to get here. I’m not meant for the orders and all of the rules that are put into place to make it a more military group and I’m sure not ready to settle down to having to share a tent with a whole bunch of other women. I’m not keen on the idea that I only have a footlocker to keep my personal belongings in and it has to stay locked all of the time to keep the peasants from stealing from me. My gowns are probably ruined from being stuffed into that trunk for so long and it is going to make me very angry if they are. Well, maybe not too angry since I know that they are probably out of fashion now since they are last season’s styles.
If I wasn’t so determined to talk to Dawnglory, I would have gone back to Silvermoon to see some of my friends and to see if I still have access to the house that my brother gave me. I know that I am not really welcomed at the main house because of those stupid goblins living there that my brother seems to like better than he does his own sister. Well, that’s what happens when you’re not really blood-related, I suppose.
I have seen Felaran a couple of times since I have been in Pandaria and even went to her house for dinner one night, which was kind of weird because she and her “husband” are both Death Knights. The food was good and I thought that it was really nice that they would think to even have a good wine to serve with it. I guess that Ty is the one that cooked the meal because Felaran still can’t cook stuff without destroying it. It seems odd to have her living with a man here in Pandaria, however, I guess even Death Knights have some softer feelings too.
I like Fel’s “husband”, even if they aren’t really married, they just say that they are and even have rings to show. I know that they couldn’t’ get married in Silvermoon or under the auspices of that law=minded group. They just decided they were married. Ty is an odd fellow, a bit on the quiet side sometimes, however, he is totally devoted to that cat of his, which is really odd. He also makes some beautiful pieces of jewelry which kind of surprised me because I wouldn’t think that a real man cold make suck delicate pieces. He showed me some of the jewelry that he was sending back to Silvermoon to sell and I was definitely awestruck, maybe he will be kind enough to give me some of the pieces some day. Oh, I could buy them, I suppose. However, why should I spend money if he is willing to give it to me in the name of “family” helping family? I think that it’s rather ironic that he looks very much like our brother and that sometimes he sounds like him – that dark mane of hair, those startling blue eyes and that voice make me feel a bit chilled and excited at the same time. Fel seems to be very much in love with him and I hope that she is happy and that they can keep that act up for a long time too.
I already know that I am going to be telling Dawnglory all of the benefits of being with someone like me rather than that woman. I’m educated, I have my own money and access to the Morningstar monies, if my brother has changed his orders at the banks, and I am also a lot younger than that woman is. She’s older and has lived most of her life like an animal in Northrend. Well, maybe he likes that pack mentality, however, it doesn’t go over well in Silvermoon where people have to at least some idea of the social norms. I suppose with him living in the wilds as a Ranger has left him open to the idea that it’s okay to have a person act more like an animal that a real person. I tried to talk to his sister about the way that he is living with this woman and she won’t talk to me anymore because I wasn’t all sunshine and nice about the fact that I think he is ruining his life.
I know that he and my brother still have some of their friends that are still Krasarang and I can’t believe how tight-lipped they are with any information in regard to Dawnglory. It’s almost like they are in league trying to protect him for some reason or other. Maybe it’s some kind of special code of theirs, however, I am not about to try to buck that system too much, it cost me enough time trying to do that and getting stuck at camp for weeks unless I was on patrol with some of those other people. One of the guys let it slip that he thought that Dawnglory was already married – well, I found out that that is a joke because I contacted the Magisters offices in Silvermoon and after several days of waiting, there is no record of a marriage posted in their files for him. Even if he does get married, that is no reason for me to stop trying to steal him away. It makes little difference to me because I know that he belongs with me and not her.
Sitting in this Inn and staring out towards the market is really quite entertaining for a while, however, I am starting to get rather bored. I suppose I should go out and see if I can find my man instead of sitting here in hopes that he will show up. I know that he probably doesn’t visit the Inn very often these days with that woman and baby holding him back, it’s not like the old days when he could come and go a he wishes. I would have never thought in a million years that my wild and headstrong Sindorei would become a domesticated being instead of what has always been a part of his nature. I think I’ll go out and see if I can find someone that might be more informative as to where Dawnglory lives, maybe a little gold in their hand might make them remember.
