I hope all is going okay in Kalimdor. I’m doing okay here in the Ghostlands. Sometimes I think the magister just doesn’t like anything I do. You know my tendency to doodle? Doesn’t everyone do that? Anyway, he saw my doodles and didn’t like them.
He has a butler who was sent to fight. He just came home with a nasty injury recently. I thought before that the sooner you came home the better, but now I don’t think so. I think if you come home with everyone else, that’ll be the best. I do hope that is soon though.
I’m doing well in my studies, despite the magister hating me. He keeps giving me more and more work to do. I was in my practice room until almost bedtime last night! Luckily, the workers here often bring food to the practice rooms for us, so I didn’t miss supper.
It’s starting to get cold here at night. My room is above the big sitting room with the big fireplace though, so I get some heat from that. I think some of the other rooms have their own fireplaces. Mine’s too small for that.
We haven’t visited Silvermoon much recently. Maybe I’ll see if one of the other students will ask the magister. I have a feeling that if I ask, he’ll just make us wait longer.
Be careful, and come home with everyone else, which I hope is soon!
[[ This letter arrives from Pandaria to Shattrath along with a small package to the Whitemorn household. ]]
I hope all is well. I’ve been doing well in Pandaria. I’ve been working with the local metals and gems here. I’ve sent along some ear cuffs for Isandri. I hope she likes them.
The people here are very strange. They’re big bears and have fur all over, and sharp teeth. They seem welcoming though, for the most part. Once in a while you meet a grumpy one who doesn’t like “outsiders”. I can’t say I blame them much.
Kit and I have been staying in a place called the Jade Forest. I’m not sure if it’s because trees are green, or there’s a jade mine here. Maybe neither, or maybe both! It is nice here though. Sometimes we make trips to the Vale. Our last trip came with a shock. It was a beautiful place, a bit like Eversong, but now it’s been destroyed. There’s a big blackened hole in the ground where the pools used to be. I heard multiple sources describe it as that orc’s doing.
I also heard that there is a war on Orgrimmar now. Do you know anything about that? I suppose if there is one, you might be there now. If that’s the case, hello Isandri. I hope you’ll forward this letter to my brother and that you like your ear cuffs! And Thero, if you are there, be careful. This orc is extremely dangerous. What happened in the Vale is a testament to that.

Forgive me for not writing sooner. Things have been rather hectic here since most healers have gone to Kalimdor. I have not only taken on your patients, but it seems half of Silvermoon’s patients as well. Not many healers were left behind. Isandri’s help has been invaluable these past weeks, but I refuse to let her stay past the time she would have normally left. On the other hand, I find myself staying in the office later and later.
Not only are we taking care of the patients who were already here, but we need to keep a few emergency spots open each day. Many of the people being sent home due to injuries still need a healer’s attention. I’ve heard news from Kalimdor from some of them. Lately, they’ve been saying that they’re in the city now. If that’s true, then maybe it won’t be much longer. I worry about you being there.
Your mother is still staying with her sister, and Esladra is with her. I had hoped Esladra would want to help out in the office as well after her studies were done for the day, but I’ve heard little from either of them. Esladra did mention that she only has one class now. The few instructors who stayed behind are still giving their classes. Her apprenticeship is on hold for the time being.
Have you heard from your brother recently? I want to get out to visit him, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon. I’ve been scheduling some patients for the weekend!
I am doing well, just very busy. I hope you are doing well too.
My Love, Isandri,
I hope all is well at home. Our camp is usually quiet, though there has been a steady increase in injuries being brought in over the past few days. The news is, they’ve made it past the gate, but the orc hasn’t been found yet. My group is still holding its position as a supply camp, so that’s good news. If they’ve cleared out the front of the city and still want to keep us at the same distance, that’s fine with me! Our mage, the one who conjures our food, said it would be more difficult for the others if the spot to make the portal to kept changing. I guess that makes sense a bit.
Is the baby growing well? I’m so excited to hear it might be a boy. How sure are they? I’d love a girl too.
I miss you so much. I think Arelanis still misses you too. She’s been a good dragonhawk though, and has saved us from the mage’s poorly conjured food a couple of nights by bringing us boars to cook and eat. I miss your cookies too.
Is everything okay in Shattrath? How is everyone else doing? I hope they’ve been coming to see you and make sure everything’s okay.
I love you. You’re so beautiful. I can’t wait to be home to hold you again.
Hi! I wanted to let you know that Tik is here at home, and is doing well. He’s taken up doing most of his normal duties, except killing the spiders. I’m still doing that. He and Terellion worked out their duties together, and they both decided I should have less cake.
I don’t like that last part, but I’m glad he’s back. I think he’s very lucky, considering.
My students enjoyed the trip to Shattrath. The library is always the highlight of the trip there, but I’m trying to figure out a way to safely take them out of the city next time. With more students now, I’m afraid I might lose one! One in particular likes to wander off a fair bit, and usually finds trouble when he does. I can only hope he resists the temptation to do so on any field trips there. I wouldn’t want him to be dinner for a Netherdrake!
Oh! Tik went to get the recipes from the death knight. I guess death knights don’t know how to write or something, because he refused to put it on paper. He did let Tik watch and take notes as he made some though, so now we have the recipes in the house. I bet they’ll be the best cakes ever. It’s too bad they won’t let me eat more of them!
I did have the talk with the new hired person, and we are getting to know each other better. He thought I hated him! I don’t know where he got that idea. We’re not being too serious yet, but oh he’s so tempting. I think it’s better to take it slower though. He hasn’t done things like that before, so that’s even more reason to take it slow. That, and I’m nervous about it, for a variety of reasons. He’s a bit younger than me, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be the first time for him. I want it to be good for both of us, and I think we should be in love. I don’t know how to make sure of that though. I want him to stay here, is that like or love? Is it when we say it? I don’t know. I like him a lot, and I don’t want him to leave, but maybe I don’t know him well enough to love him yet. I don’t think he feels that for me yet either. Maybe soon.
We haven’t been very open about our relationship with the others. Sometimes I feel like I’m a bad secret to him. I understand that it’s probably not best to tell everyone, but I don’t like having to sneak around about it. I want to be able to kiss him in the sitting room by the fire there, and not have to worry about who sees us! I guess if he loves me someday, we’ll tell people.
Anyway, that’s news from here. Tell Lani her house is almost ready! I hope everyone is back home soon!
