[Nita's not entirely used to addressing large groups of people. It may be kind of funny for a wizard who has saved the world multiple times to get stage fright, but well... here she is. She clears her throat.]

So a while ago, I remember someone talking about people offering lessons. Is anyone still doing that? I don't know exactly what I'm looking for yet...except not jujitsu. That didn't work out so well the first time.

But I'm beginning to think that having a way  to defend myself other than wizardry might drastically increase my lifespan here.

[Ben almost never makes his own entries into the journals. He's never been much of a talker, even less so after the mess back home. But today is different. Because today he stepped out of his room, into the living space of the suite he shared with Clementine and Lee, and found them distinctly missing. It had taken quite a bit of psyching himself up on his part, to open the door leading to the hallway, to find their names both missing.

And that was that. They were gone. Lee back to die and Clem back to live. He didn't know which of them he felt more sorry for. Regardless, he was the only one from their world back, and it tore into him that the castle had deigned to keep him, of all people, safe from what lay ahead. It wasn't fair, and it wasn't right. Everyone who came and left before him, they had far much more of a right to continue going on than him. But here he was.

It took a while, before he finally addressed the journal, keeping the door closed and sitting on the floor, staring at the pages, dreading whatever answers he was going to get from the announcement.

For anyone who knew them, Clementine and Lee have gone back. [He can't even call it home, it stopped being that for all of them a long time ago.]
