20 Flamerule 1372 -- Evening  
I like Thralia and Tordrin, I really do, but I was very glad when they left. I was much more tired than I let on, and I think they knew it. It all started when I asked Tordrin if Rilla would make it back all right with only a couple hours of rest.

"Oh, I prearranged for one of Turlang's treant sentries to carry her and the dogs part-way so she could sleep," he replied. "How about you? Did you get a chance to rest?"

"Oh, yeah, when I first got here."

"Was that enough?" Seledra said, "I thought you said you were only here about an hour before me. That's not a very long trance."

"I didn't trance, I just rested."

"Well, when was the last time you tranced?" she asked. Here we go.

"Don't worry, I'm fine."

"That's not what she asked you." Thralia said.

"Oh, not you, too. You guys are just doing this because I'm about to win for the third time in a row."

"When?" Tordrin said, flatly.

"Well, I tranced lightly for about an hour on the road last night."

"And?" Three voices in unison.

I sighed. "Just before sunset. The day before yesterday. For a couple of hours."

"So what you're saying is you haven't had a full trance since we were in the carriage on the way to Everlund." Seledra looked both angry and hurt. "You should have said something!"

"Don't worry, I've done stuff like this lots of times. Besides, I wanted to catch up with you. And it wasn't exactly a taxing day. We relaxed a lot."

"That's not the same," Seledra insisted. "What if something happened this afternoon, and you got hurt because you were too tired?"

"I told you, I'm fine!"

Selune whined. I think it was her way of saying "Liar."

"'Ledra, when have you know me to be a shrinking violet about letting you know I needed something? Seriously, if I thought I needed to trance, I would've let you know." Or not.

"All right!" Tordrin said. "Arguing about it won't do anything. Let's just call it a night so Mayurra can rest. Properly."

Seledra wasn't really tired yet, so she went downstairs with Thralia and Tordrin to talk some more, and to give me a little extra quiet. Selune stayed in the room (she had to, because she really wasn't supposed to be here) and lay across the foot of my bed while I started my trance.

"I had lot so relaxation"

Everything else, we've just chatted about, so yeah. :)

Grr. I blame the keyboards at school. I have to hit them harder. 'Cause it couldn't possibly be my fault, right?

I'm thinking I could still use some of this, depending on how I rework the travel; but I'm going to privatize it until I know for sure.

I get the feeling there is something going on beneath the surface here. But then again, I always think that...

Which surface? There shouldn't be any surprises at this point, if you've been paying attention.
