Lek used to earn a few coins by polishing the silver for the inn. Cleaning armor was a little harder, but Lek had it cleaned and polished in no time.

Lek checked out his reflection in Wulfsen's breastplate, trying to decide if he would look tougher with a scar through his eye brow or across his cheek. He was thinking eyebrow.

Wulfsen was surprised.

"You got that done faster than I thought you would." Wulfsen said, taking the breastplate and examining it. "Good, it's good." Wulfsen said. "I'm going to be going, hopefully I'll be back by tomorrow but it may take a few days ago. You can probably have everything in the armory cleaned up by the time I return."

"Leaving- shouldn't I be going with you?" Lek asked.

Of course the boy wanted to come along. Wulfsen shook his head.

"There may be fighting and you haven't had any proper training yet. I don't want you to get hurt before you learn to defend yourself."

"You were supposed to be training me." Lek said, disappointed.

"Lad, they'll teach you how to fight!" Wulfsen clapped Lek on the shoulder, then headed out to let Sileas know he was going away for a while. Again. He wished he could just spend time with her.

Wulfsen's barber, Xander, finished shaving Wulfsen around the same time he finished his story.

"And it was in the sink!" Xander laughed, swishing off the apron and clapping Wulfsen on the shoulder.

Wulfsen chuckled nervously. He stood up and studied his face in the mirror. The bruises from the scuffle with the elves had faded nicely, no longer noticeable unless one looked closely.

"Lek, my jacket." Wulfsen called to his page.

Lek took the dress jacket from its hanger and helped Wulfsen put it on. Lek had his own bruises, the men he trained with had not gone easy on them, but at least they only left marks that were easily concealed with clothing so Mama would not worry.

Lek thought that they were so hard on him to try to get him to quit. Lek refused. During a bout yesterday Lek broke his opponents wooden sword and managed to give the man a bloody nose. His opponent wiped at the blood, laughed and told Lek that he was beginning to learn how to fight. Lek lost the last round but he was starting to feel more confident.

Sileas Spenser:
Sileas headed for Wulfen's rooms.


Wulfsen was shocked to have Sileas bowl right past him. Instead of going to hte hall she went to his room in the barracks.

"Uhm, Sileas?" Wulfsen asked.

Sileas was continuing on to the main hall, but stopped when she heard Wulfsen's voice. She turned. "There you are!"

"What's wrong?" Wulfsen asked with concern, his arms going around her.

"Nothing," Sileas lied, only to be betrayed by her voice coming out in a high squeak.

"Lek was looking for advice on Pinja, and he had said it was like she blamed herself. I mentioned that is part of the whole thing, that I blamed myself a lot during my year in seclusion. To which he replied, "She did nothing wrong and hadn't deserved it." Which is true, but the way he said it clearly means he feels I had done something wrong and deserved it. I know I was never close with Lek and Millie but I had no idea he felt that way about me. It hurts."

"Surely he didn't mean- If Lek meant it I'll give him a whipping." Wulfsen said.

"He claims he didn't, but usually when things pop out of someone that way, they've usually been at least thinking it."

"Sileas, Lek is obsessed with Pinja. He was thinking about her, not you, not even subconsciously." Wulfsen said. "He thinks about her all the time, even when he's asleep I hear him say her name."

"No, of course not." Wulfsen gently rubbed circles in Sileas's back. "You misunderstood him and thought he believed you deserved to be raped... Being upset would be a natural reaction to that."

"I still think he did. I bet everyone but Mama and Papa did," Sileas sniffled.
