Sail Away

(6 Imaerasta 5115, The Island) She should ask if that would be the last trip of the season to the Island. But she was afraid of the answer. The Frontier Days Festival ended the night before. She knew her visit in the Landing was nearing an end, as well the time at the Island. It had been a fun time during the busy Festival celebrations. She picked up a new winter coat, some sandals, collected some ideas for the wedding, made new...

It’s In His Kiss

(16 Ivastaen 5115: Ta’Illistim) “Nobody has ever kissed me like this, like you do,” she whispered softly to him. The Glowbark Tree was beautiful tonight, illuminating the heart of the garden better than even the Great Moon when it is full. The sirenflowers filled the air with what can only be described as a song – a constantly changing, living song. This was one of her favorite places to spend with him. They...

That’s What Friends Are For

(9 Ivastaen 5115: Ta’Illistim) Not every rescue is from the jaws of death. The Adventuring Guild assigned the bardess to recover an heirloom from a spectral lord. It seemed like a good enough match for her. Aetheri went with her to that area regularly so she could earn her next step for the Order of Voln. She would just save the job until he was around. She came in from a successful hunt in the Teorainn Dale, and tarried on the dais...

How Many People Does It Take…

(4 Ivastaen 5115: Ta’Illistim) How Many People Does It Take To Help A Bardess? “The only kind of luck I am having today is bad luck,” she thought. She glanced at her fractured and bleeding leg and her hand as she sat at the Hanging Gardens, snacking on acantha leaves like she had not eaten for days. The Teorainn Dale had not been good to her. “I would rise to curtsy and greet you, too, Mister Kitagaen, but...

Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner

(1 Ivastaen 5115: Ta’Illistim) The bardess just stared at this second letter from home in as many days. It made no sense at all for them to change their mind like this. Dear Luxie,   I do not have time for more than a short note about this change of plans. We are leaving today to meet you in Ta’Vaalor next week. We will send word when we arrive.   Plan to bring him. Your Father Him??  The letter seemed very terse for...

Thoughts of Home

(30 Olaesta 5115: Ta’Illistim) She looked at the letter in her hand from her mother and could not help but read it again even though her eyes were blurring from the tears that she could not stop. Luxie dear,   We are so happy to hear all is going well for you. There is nothing I am looking forward to more than hearing your every new song, and learning all about each creation!   Your father and I cannot get away now, there...

Coupon for a Kiss

(27 Olaesta 5115: Ta’Illistim in the wee hours after midnight) “Thank you ever so much!” she told him. He had given her a symbol of the Lord of Dreams to hold her chrism. Looking at the sword symbol, she saw a beautiful periwinkle feystone already sparkling in it. That was such a generous extra touch. She practically beamed at him in excitement over this special gift. She replaced the symbol she had been wearing that was a...

Sunset

(Kelfour’s Landing, back in the day, circa 1995) {Backstory: She always introduced this song as a celebration of love, of lovers. There was never any doubt she wrote it for the mage. He bade her sing it oft… ~D.} Easily, he slides across the sky, Horizon to horizon, ’til only sunset’s colours left identify Light’s last enticing passion. He is Night — and Dark, he comes; Drawn to where she rests. Silken...

Old Joy

(21 Olaesta 5115; Ta’Illistim) She had lost track of how much time passed since the Lord Admiral had entrusted his song to her. Truthfully, it was his sister’s song, she had learned. But she heard him sing it first, and it had impressed with his voice in her memory. The song, “The Loss of My Heart” by Siralina Machtes Ashrim, was a beautiful, passionate piece the bardess had first heard under the Old Oak in the...

Garden

(20 Olaesta 5115; Ta’Illistim) Around every corner was something new in the Shining City. She was a stranger here, yet he did not make her feel like an interloper. “Have you ever been to Veythorne Manor?” he asked her. She shook her head, it did not ring any bells. “I think you will like it. Do you have time now? I will show you,” he offered. It was the deep of night, she was not sure what this manor might be,...
