I need to stop being an idiot. I should know that if I keep doing things just to prove I can do them, eventually I’m going to run into something I can’t do. Jousting is one of those things.
I don’t know what possessed me to grab a lance and hop on the back of that hawkstrider. I wanted to be Isandri’s knight, but instead I’ve wound up being her patient. I was knocked off very easily. The guy even came and apologized. The healers gave me crap for even trying. They said I should have known better. They’re right. I should have.
They kept me there for the longest time. They wouldn’t let me go because I was having trouble walking. I kept telling them it was normal. I guess all the bruising isn’t so normal. I landed right on the bad leg. I’m probably lucky that nothing was broken. I told them my fiancée is a priestess, but they were afraid I would fall off the mount on the way back to Dalaran. My arms are fine. I can hold on. They eventually let me go.
Isandri had been worried about me. I don’t think I’m going anywhere for a few days now. I think she worried about that this morning before she left for her lessons. She was either worried about me trying to go somewhere, or about leaving me alone. I told her I was staying home and that I’d be fine. I can send Arelanis to get almost anything I need. I don’t think she was entirely convinced.
The other ranger, Fnor, was at the lounge last night. I stopped there on my way home. I thought Isandri might be there waiting for me since she knows I go there sometimes. She wasn’t, but she had been earlier. Anyway I was limping quite heavily, and I guess it was very obvious. Fnor said he knew of healers who could help. I’m not so sure about that. What a lot of people don’t realize is that a good part of my muscle was torn off by the ghoul. You can’t regrow that any more than you can regrow a finger. You can only work on what’s left.
Still, I find myself curious as to whether he knows someone who really can help. I’ll have to get in contact with him.
I hate when it hurts too much to walk. I can still walk, but I’m in considerable pain right now. Staying off my feet all day is the worst thing for me. I need to walk or it will get worse. I hope the pain fades soon. Maybe I can make it to the lounge tonight.
