From Aellas journal:
I've been thinking lately, people are getting married or throwing themselves into relationships like it's the end of days...I know I have Sylus and I'd be calling the cauldron black if I said I didn't do the same thing. I mean I'm a twenty one almost twenty two year old half elven monk looking to get purple glowing eyes because a dead god is influencing me in ways I seriously don't get.
Anyway, Sylus is human, normal everyday human that's an idiot at times. But he's younger than me, I can tell by just how young his face is and how it doesn't looked like it's aged. The beard does make him manly but...he's got a baby face under it. I can tell. I'm getting side tracked here, he's human I'm half elven, ten to one says by the time he reaches his goal with the PDK he'll be an old man. And I might have my purple eyes before then...so...*sighs* I feel like it'll be a few years before we're ever married. I will admit that I've already told him that if he asked me I'd say yes.
Heh while I'm thinking about it...Norah brought up the idea that I should send an application to join the RCMH become a squire and such. All because of a debate I had one day with Saori. Albeit at the time I didn't understand her motivation for moving forward but I've seen how she is around Izzy and the dragon blood Thorell. They're a good unit and I wouldn't doubt that I'm no longer in the same skill range as Saori. After all she has a competent team to venture out with at all times...where I'm...well I don't have that. I have Sylus but lately I've been going back into mandatory meditations at night. During the day...I've only got myself to venture out with most days. But it is what it is I guess. I...can't keep up with Sylus as he grows stronger by the day. So I may as well stop trying.
Wow way off topic there, anyway Norah said that if I don't feel like I've a purpose or satisfaction with just randomly venturing out, she thinks the RCMH would be a good fit for me. Though...as much as I'd want to, I think I'll focus on my monastic training. After all, even if I'm not an official member of the RCMH, Sylus will more than likely 'dragon' me on his missions as a member of his team when he gets that far. I mean I can see his higher ups questioning it for a long while, but eventually it might just turn into "Okay well guess this means his wife is going to be tagging along too. Can't seem to stop them from pairing up." Well that's what I think it'll get to be like later on. Honestly I'm not ready for marriage now. Still to young for that. Maybe...in few years. Definitely before Sylus is 90 years old though. Maybe when he's in his 50's or 70's hehehe. Just kidding.

From Aellas journal:
Lately I've been finding myself in the company of others more than I've been in Sylus's. Though I can peg that on my mandatory meditations at night. But even during the day I don't see him, either we are in two different places or already in a group with other people. Sometimes I imagine him walking up in his old armor and joining the group that slowly being formed. If only for the reason to venture out and watch/ admire me.
Sometime I wonder what it would be like when I did manage to catch up to him. We could go to places much different than the ones we go to now. The necropolis is on the list of places I'd like to go to for training. There's also this fire temple I've heard about. Honestly I've never fought a fire giant, so I wonder if they're as hard the hill and frost Giants. There's also the swamps I've wanted to go to as well as the Tun and farther down into the Upperdark. At least past the salamanders there and their explosive traps.
But I know that if I want to traverse those places I need to be stronger. I must get stronger.

From Aella's journal:
I'm sore today, very sore. Finally went down to the Necropolis today with fellow Monk of the Old Order Astraeus, Claire a follower of Sune, The self proclaimed luckiest Bard in Cormyr Sabel, and for a time the elf mage Freya. Is it always that difficult? The undead were challenging but according to the others they were tougher than normal. I don't know what normal is for the necropolis but that was my first time going there. Honestly I thought it was some cave surrounded by undead that went deep into the earth but it's...definitely a challenging place to go to. I wonder though, had I not been curious about it today, would things have gotten worse there? Either way, I learned a lot from there but I feel like there's still more I need to learn. I need to strengthen my body now. The undead that have a death gaze didn't seem to affect me as I fought them, but maybe I just got lucky. I know I'll be feeling the adventure tomorrow more than I'm feeling it right now. But it was well worth it.

A letter to home:
I think I'll be coming home after tomorrow...maybe. I just wanted to give you a word in advance so you didn't think some thing horrible happened to me here in Cormyr. I just...I miss home.
I don't think anyone will miss me to terribly if I came home. I don't think many would even notice. After all, people come and go here all the time. I...I'm not going to tell Sylus though. Lately we haven't been around each other. But I'll tell you about it in person. There's only so much room to write things out on parchment. I'm sure he won't mind or notice. He's got a lot of responsibilities since he's a Squire in the RCMH.
But I think a few days home after my birthday tomorrow will be alright. Honestly...I doubt others will even know so it'll just be another day. I only told Sylus so...here's hoping tomorrow is a good one.

A letter from home:
You best stay in Cormyr. Your father and I have decided to head to Evermeet for a while. You're third uncle has been wanting to meet your father for the longest of time and has sworn he won't turn him into a chicken for fun. If he does well...you know how I get. Either way, stay safe and try your best!
