A beautifully bound leather book the ornate and gold-edging decorating this journals outer covering looks to be from another time and place.
On opening, the first page reads... These are the personal accounts and wanderings of Lavender Cecilia Morgan.

So there I was enjoying the garden we dedicated to the gods, and I was filling Taven in on events he'd missed with the bronze god Drakon, and the happenings surrounding him, leading to the creation of the garden in what was once the demolished glass building. And I felt the presence of the gods smiling down on me. I may not be a cleric, but that whole situation helped me grow, and proved that one doesn't have to be a cleric to follow the gods and honor them. Though I did not use the blessing they bestowed upon me at that time, because I chose to spend that time with Taven. I knew then that they were pleased by the work I helped create with the gardens I now regularly enjoy, and the knowledge of that filled me with joy.

I am in tears, happy tears. He waited for me, though I ran from him, he waited patiently for me to be ready. And now, for the second time in my life, I have someone by my side who makes me happy. He knows my past, he accepts it, and the challenge it might present knowing my past tendance to run from every guy who tries to get close. He said he believes I'm worth it, something I guess I needed to hear. Because it is something I have never believed of myself. And to make things better today is the start of Summerfaire! So looking forward to what the season has to bring.

Sometimes I wonder why I even try. Why I even exist any more. Seems like every time I TRY and do something right I inevitably mess it all up. Ended up hurting a friend, got accused of trying to sabotage their happiness, which couldn't be more wrong. I know what it is like to be lonely, I know what it is like to feel like you may never find someone who makes you smile, laugh, or just feel... important again. So why would I purposely hinder someone else having that? I envy them, yes. But not to the point of trying to take it away from them. Sometimes I wish, I never came to Valorn, maybe I could have figured things out where I was. But, I know I would have died there, and not the kind of death adventures know, but one as a villager would know. But even then... sometimes I feel as if I am dying here too, a little at a time. Seems every time I am around people I make things worse for them. Makes stronger my belief I am better off alone.

Been a long time since I've been able to put ink to my thoughts, nice to do so again. Not much has happened to me anyway. Life goes on much the same. Still as alone as I've been, still having found no one who touches my heart. I guess I've become so use to it I seem unapproachable now to people. Though I've gotten to where I don't care anyway, most who try to catch my attention are children and I want someone who can stand beside me, not an idol worshiper. Sometimes I wonder if that is wanting too much. But I would rather be alone then with someone I can't have a conversation with because they simply agree with what I say, because I say it. I find I truly am better off alone, and I have made peace with it. But my smile comes naturally now which is nice to find joy again.

Today is a day I feel my smile is a fracade, I smile, I laugh, but feel no joy in the motion. I feel empty...perhaps I've been zombiefied to many times and have had more taken from me then just my body... even if it is reformed. Perhaps I am tired...or perhaps, seeing smiling couples makes me bitter, I do so envy them. That for me is worse then anything demon, god, or being has done to me. Such a simple, innocent, sweet thing, makes me so very sad, reminds me how alone I am.

Fear? I think all fear has vanished in the light of recent personal events. A gentleman I've always had a crush on, but always assumed he was taken. Said he's always been a fan of mine. To be honest that to me was at first odd..a fan? Why would anyone be my fan? But I've got butterflies in my stomach...and I can't seem to stop smiling. The future may be brighter then I thought.

My mild fear have deepened. But I think they have more to do with my own past mistakes, then truely being frightened by this being..Or perhaps I fear what he seems to repersent ...death. And not the kind the Life Monuments can bring one back from. All this is speculation, for I am feeling inadequate and uncertain about everything in my life. But regardless of feeling, I will stand and fight when the time comes. And my aim will be true.

Thank goodness for others. If not for someone other then myself seeing something similar to my own experience, then I might have thought my mind had finally snapped. So thankful for Cody, he believes me sight unseen himself. I have no clue who or what this new entity is, but I do know it is cruel and loves to kill us, despite the fact we come back to fight again. I will admit to being frightened but fear will not stop me from doing what I must to protect my home, and my friends. Only time will tell now what may come.

Woke this day, feeling as if I couldn't breathe. Tears stinging my eyes unshed. No idea what brought them there...I feel barren and more alone then ever. I wander the realm like a restless spirit that can't go back to living and can't move on to what comes next.

So much in life seems to be on repeat. I feel as if I am stuck in a bog, not looking back...but not moving forward. Just... Stuck... eternally alone.
