Relationship Note on Cassandra
I never spent much time praying to Gloria. My soul belongs to Mangata, it always has. But its only polite to give tribute when you're about to enter someone's house. And was is war if not Gloria's demesne? Especially one that will be fought not on the waves.

Lady Calypso called. Lady Calypso enthralled
Her voice heard throughout the land
Let the warriors come from the north
Let the champions understand
Let the nobles come forth
Let the commoners hear
Let them fight with all their might.
Honor to the crafters, they are so dear
And come forth they did.
They came to showcase all their might.
They came to win this heated fight.
They came to dominate
And they came to fall, but came they did.
They heard, they saw.
Prince Luca joined in nothing but his breaches, dark skin bare, the peaches stare
Duke Niccole stepped into the fray, still of noble grace even with blood upon his face
Count Max arrived with his hordes of rum and yet still he succumbed
Leta, brave and brawny, of the boroughs, she craved and gave
Lord Inigo, was sly and he was handsome, but will have to retry
Commander Silas stepped into the fray, looking for prey
Lord Darrow of Darkwater was without a smile, but he still beguiled
Miss Vena, short, but strong, she will have no song
Prince Anze, he strode into the melee, thinking make way, it is my day
Lord Ansel with such power, he could now use a whiskey sour
And then she came, Miss Zhalya, the melee's Queen, the Greyson alpha
The Warriors fought and the Warriors sought
Steel upon steel in this ideal melee and Eirene heals
All fall flat before her, Miss Zhalya
Miss Zhalya, the Victor of the Compact Melee. The battalion of the day

As it stands, I've pledged to fight for the family both on and off the field of battle and am committed to doing so. After all, who best to fight for than the ones you love? However, the battlefield seems large and unfamiliar. More training seems to be in order...

I was serious when I said I'd barge in to your room with a bottle of whiskey, too. I'll do it!

Now the same people that mocked me or would call me madman eagerly prepare to face their "new" foe.
A part of me is bitter, and the other is eager to join them.
I only hope it is not to late.

Relationship Note on Zhayla
And sure enough, she just needed to get past my guard a few times and I was done for. No amount of steel plate could save me and I could not knock her out before she could hit me; that was the ultimate plan.
Still, I have no regrets, and I applaud her victory.

Dear Sir First Captain Rymarr:
This is my first letter I've ever written anyone! I asked one of the scholars what to do and they are helping me, but I'm writing it on my own, so if I get anything wrong it's my fault, not theirs. Since you told me to write you to tell you what I'm doing and what I've learned, here's what I've done in the last few days:
I finally finished setting up my room, I think. The Marquessa let me have my pick of items in storage at the Deepwood Manor. I have so many pictures of all kinds of things! Some of them are places I recognize, or look like places I recognize, anyway, but there's a lot of them that I don't recognize at all. I don't know what else to do with all the space so I've put a bunch of rocks I like on the windowsill and desk. What do you do with your space?
I fought in the melee organized by Lady Calypso. I saw Leta there and someone else that I later learned was Lord Commander Silas, except he said that we were the only commoners there, except he's a Lord? I thought he was a commoner, anyway, so when I saw two people fighting him I asked if Silas minded if I fought one of them. Except the guy I fought didn't actually have any armor on, so after I hit him twice I didn't want to hit him anymore. He was actually really, really, really hard to hit. He must be very good. After that I fought some big northerner that I'm pretty sure I fought before, but he was totally silent, and it was a little weird. I think he would have beaten me if like three other people weren't fighting him at the same time. After that I think it was basically just the Lord Commander, me, and someone else, and they both started fighting me instead of each other! I didn't want to fight the Lord Commander, who I thought wasn't a Lord Commander, so I was trying to hit the other guy. I got very lucky and managed to take him out of the fight. After that it was me and Silas and he just kept hitting me and hitting me and I couldn't get past his guard at all until all of a sudden I did in two big hits and then I won. It was very strange and a little scary and honestly I probably need to go see the healers still, although they did a very good job after. How do you find healers?
I went to the Shrine of Gloria, too, and talked to this tremendously stern looking woman who answered a bunch of my questions, but maybe not in a way I'm entirely satisfied with. I don't know if there any good answers to my questions.
The idea of honor is such a funny thing. Like I didn't want to fight that guy without armor after hitting him twice, because if I hit him again it could have really hurt him, so was fighting someone else honorable, or just smart, because if he did get hurt, I'd get blamed? And I still don't see what's honorable about sparing someone just so that they can go on to hurt others. I think it's selfish to hold your own idea of honor above the wellbeing of others. Sometimes the right thing to do isn't the honorable thing, but I didn't want to tell her I thought that.
I'm really looking forward to telling the Marquessa I won, but I don't want it to sound like I'm bragging. Not too much. Just bragging a little. How should I tell her, do you think?
Hope you are having a good day doing knight things. You should tell me about them!
