-23rd Sun of the 1st Umbral Moon
Jiggy stole my journal. I’m not sure if I’m impressed by his artistic ability or upset that he has more legible handwriting than myself.
Things have calmed down recently. I broke up with U’xi around this time last moon. Naturally, she refused to let me do so, until I just physically walked away from her and closed the door in her face. I haven’t heard from her since, and it’s been wonderful.
I feel happier.
Zho has moved in with me as well. She’s now working with me to man the shop, although I’m still doing a majority of the work it feels. It’s nice having company. We’ve shared some moments, but I’m still unsure as to where our relationship truly lies. I hope she doesn’t think we’re together right now… I might have slept with an Au Ra a few times.
Maybe more than a few.
In other, unrelated news: I’ve repaired my friendship with Reppu. I’d become increasingly hostile to her as my depression set in again. I didn’t want to lose her, so naturally I opted to be as vile and scathing as I could. Which totally made sense in my head somehow. Thankfully Eyshn was able to actually get through to me a little. She cares, her and Fenix both. I think she knows what I’ve been going through and she doesn’t want me to go the same way that she did. I can see why Reppu idolises her so.
What else is there to catch up on? Jack’s damage to the airship during our previous venture under Occidens is still biting me in the arse. Both the starboard engine and fuel tank were ruptured in some manner. The engine is repaired, but it’s only operating off half the fuel it should be, and will be doing so until I can repair the tank. To that end, I’ve asked Reppu if Sarnai–the Au Ra I previously mentioned–could sign up to work with us as an additional engineer and got the OK. I just hope I’ll get work done on the airship and not just on her.
Reppu also has us in some venture within the Wanderer’s Palace. I opted to remain out of the last journey out there, I’ve far too much work on repairing this airship damage right now to be balancing combat during the downtime. It doesn’t help that Leanne is there, throwing her ego around and getting in the way of anybody trying to do anything productive, but I’m not too surprised. I pointed a gun at her a while ago. I wish it was loaded.
And we’re heading down darker paths again. It’s best I cut it here, I believe.
Stay out of my journal, Jiggy.
