Things are kind of a mess everywhere right now. One of the girls in my classes said it’s because of the moon, but I don’t know if I believe that. People act crazy all the time, they don’t need the moon for an excuse.
Sath found out about Kestrae wanting to go on the trip and got mad, and now Kes is mad at him because he came to our house talking about Sanimir. She kept apologizing for him. I know people do things a little differently in the city, and I wonder if they just aren’t used to people like him. I mean yes, he can say and do stupid things — sometimes often — but he’s not doing it to make trouble or anything. He’s always been like that, if there was something bothering Mierra or I, he’d have to go out and try to fix it. He’s just trying to protect me — and now he’s doing the same for her. I said I’d go and try to talk to him, but he wasn’t at their house this morning and Kes didn’t know where he’d gone. I know about the girl in Eversong, he doesn’t know that I do but people in Silvermoon love to gossip. Maybe Kes doesn’t, and it doesn’t excuse him being an idiot but it does help to explain it.
I do think it’s a little odd that Thero doesn’t seem to worry about that at all. I mean when I asked about going off to the shrine with them he didn’t even blink, he said “it depends”. It’s like he doesn’t even care if I did something like that, but honestly I think he’s just putting on an act so Sath won’t be right. I think if I really did do it, he’d freak out. He freaked out about my shirt after all, and that’s not even as bad.
Sanimir was at the lounge last night and I talked to him a little, I asked if everything was okay. He seemed nervous but otherwise all right. I told him I didn’t believe he said those things, but I also said that he might want to consider new friends. Sanimir just said he’s not so bad if you get to know him. Really? I wonder if they’re lovers or something, that would explain why he puts up with that nonsense from Aeramin. He told me about how Raleth and Lali don’t like him because of what happened when Lali was an apprentice. I suggested that he just go and apologize but I don’t think it went too well. He just kind of blurted it out and then blinked away. I guess if I was a mage I would too, because that seems useful. Then Lali said she wasn’t going to give him one of the kittens because he might forget to feed it. I don’t think Sanimir meant her any harm and I know he wouldn’t hurt a kitten. He’s really rather nice and I think Lali’s being a little unfair to him. I wonder if I could take two kittens and give him one, but I guess if they ever came over they’d notice we only had one. I’ll think about it.
Thero didn’t go to the healer yet. I hope he does soon, whether they can help or not I at least want to know soon. If they can at least help with the pain, that would be wonderful. Then he wouldn’t have to take so much medicine and we could do more things. Sometimes I wonder about his other girl, if they went camping and things like that. He wasn’t injured then so I bet they did. I wonder what she looked like and whether she liked him or not. I bet she did. He says he “liked” her, but I suspect he’s just saying that so he doesn’t hurt my feelings. I wonder if he held her in his arms and stroked her ears while she fell asleep, and I bet he did that too. I’m glad he’s mine now but it does make me a little sad to think about it. Is that strange? I should ask Lali, she might know.
Her grandfather was there for a little while. He’s really tall and a bit scary looking. He kept staring at me but then he said he recognized me from the wedding, so I guess he was just trying to figure out where he knew me from. He’s staying in the city for a few days.
I wonder if Arelanis could find Sath for me.
