When we were in Stepford, I took a woman to bed and she disappeared. And this was no woman slinking from bed before morning! She truly vanished entirely into thin air. I was terribly confused then, just as I am now, and it is frustrating to think about even now –– she was a really beautiful woman! Setting aside the, ah… disappointment of losing such a fine lover, I enjoyed her company as well, and I take no pleasure in absence.

To think Paradisa would send someone home in the midst of a romp! I suppose men now have an excuse for finishing before their lovers, fearing they will be finishing alone otherwise.

I do not write often enough. I will try harder in the new year, hmm?

Salute, my fellow residents.

I am Ezio Auditore. I believe I am the only one here who is a native of Firenze in this time, so the task falls to me to ensure all you little turisti are safe and not inciting mobs. In the interest of keeping you from insulting my culture for the coming week, I have some advice to dispense:
  • While you may call it "Florence" if you wish, we do not speak English here and you will seem stupid. It is Firenze and we live in the province of Toscana. Italia is a region and not a country; if you speak of Italia as a country you will likely be branded a Borgia sympathizer, and the people of Firenze do not take kindly to the Borgia. Your loyalties are to Firenze.
  • Do not ask me about tomatoes. We do not have them.
  • Do not ask me about forks. We do not have them.
  • Do not ask me about tea, coffee or chocolate drink. We do not have those, either. If you do not like wine, you may drink water, but do not become cross with me when you find yourself ill. You do not wish to know what is in the river from which you draw water.
  • Do not complain if you find yourself without a bed. In this time only the very wealthy have a bed of their own, and the rest will share or find themselves a straw pallet or warm place on the floor.
  • My dear ladies: as much as I admire your fire and your spirit, I implore that you do not take chances by venturing out alone or where none can see you. Should the worst happen and you be violated, there is little anyone can do to protect you without risking execution. Please find a chaperone, and if you are unable to do so, contact me directly and I will see what I can do.
  • Additionally, ladies: Please respect my culture and do not try to comport yourselves as men do. Men and women have their different qualities and with that, different strengths. The women of this time will attest to that. Please do not quarrel with my people over this, as you will only embarrass yourselves and make your own lives difficult. It is just a week, hmm?
  • Executions are public and are thought to be entertainment. Avoid the plazas if you hear of an execution.
  • Gentlemen, Firenze is known for its beautiful women and this will be the best week of your life. If you can afford it, go to La Rosa Colta and ask Madam Paola for a girl. If you cannot afford it, you can find company for less than the price of dinner in the poorer districts, along with card and dice, cockfights and drinking, but do not expect any privacy. If you prefer the company of men, be secretive of this. You may be executed or tortured.
  • If you do not believe in God, keep it to yourself. If you are critical of the church, keep that to yourself as well. Things are difficult in Firenze at this time and you are only going to incite violence against yourself.
  • For the last time, his name is not "da Vinci", it is "Leonardo." "Da Vinci" means "of Vinci" as that is where he was born. He is presently in Milan, so do not bother me about him or ask that I introduce you.
And with that, I leave you an offer: should you require any assistance with meals, shelter, safety and likewise, correspond with me by the journal and I will see what I can help you with. I do not have room or funds to make you all dukes and duchesses, but I can certainly offer assistance to those who find themselves in trouble.

I killed a man earlier this year.

He did not return.

I thought it would be prudent to leave warning that perhaps those killed by another resident no longer return from the dead.

This will serve as my only warning.

I know we don't really know each other, but Molotov asked me to get a message to you. Please answer as fast as you can, it's urgent.

[Ezio's got the baby today, and as such, he is sitting on a couch in the lobby with the baby on a thick blanket spread out on the floor. That way, the baby can play with an assortment of toys while he reads. Pro parent? Definitely.

To the journal!]

My good friend Stephanie says that people do not care if they have a boy or a girl, which I disagree with. Surely people from every time have a preference –– some of us are more inclined to raise a child who will hunt and play sports and get dirty than a child who will be more interested in pretty dresses and parlor games. Your thoughts?

[Ezio has been hiding himself away for a variety of reasons.

Perhaps it's because his schedule has been thrown. There are no more late mornings with Lana, pressed up against her despite the warmth and cajoling her to stay just a little bit longer, just five more minutes. There are no more late lunches, no more dinners snuck in between sittings at the restaurant. No more riding out to the fields to picnic and joke and carouse, no more wine in pretty baskets, no more flowers just-because, or any of the other hallmarks of a man starting to get really invested in a woman.

That is because there is no more Lana. She's gone, as if the castle had forgotten how much she was loved –– even with Wesley and Fred and all of those others passing on from this world, Ezio liked to think that he enjoyed Lana enough for her to always matter to the castle.

She'd always been so bothered by the fact that they'd someday leave and forget each other, but she'd always acted like she would be the one to remember while he drifted away. And now here he is, the one left waiting.

But there are only so many weeks he could hide out in Stephanie and Cassandra's apartment, thinly "tolerating" Tim's presence and straddling the line between being heartbroken and maintaining a stoic manliness. With the babies everywhere, it is somewhat easier –– distractions, and all –– but he still needs to get out. There are only so many ways you can stave off loneliness.

So here he is, tentatively dipping his feet back in the world of women. Has it really been six months since he seriously chased another skirt?]

[And then there's Ezio, whiling away some time in the garden. He's got a thick leather glove on one hand and a colourful eagle-like bird perched at his wrist; that bird is currently wearing a hood, patiently waiting in darkness for Ezio to unhood him for some time in flight.

Come bother a dude and his bird.]
