The Keep - Millie's Sewing Room
Millie was curled up in a large chair by the window, working on some children's clothing. Her work table was piled high with fabrics and supplies, she was still waiting on some other furniture to sort things out on to.

Fortune swept into the room.

"Oh good, you've gotten yourself set up." Fortune said. "I have so many dress ideas and you simply must make me something new right away."

The woman pulled out a scrap of paper with a fancy dress design roughly sketched out. Just like she brought to Millie's shop every week before the raid.

Millie smiled at her regular customer. "Good morn," she greeted, setting aside what she was working on. She took the paper and studied it. "This is lovely. Why don't you choose a fabric you would like it in?"

Millie bypassed the hall, it seemed everyone was going to their rooms. She didn't feel up to speaking to Aalyssa or Pinja, so she went to her sewing room and bolted the door. After building a fire in the hearth, Millie spread out one of the furs and grabbed another to place over her, and she curled up to go to sleep.

Despite her nervousness, Tria finally managed to thread the needle. She began sewing, only making a few stitches before she poked herself with the needle again, this time drawing blood which soaked into the fabric she had been sewing. Tria stiffened, horrified at her screw up. Bloodstains don't come out easily, this fabric was likely destroyed. Millie was going to be angry.

"But it takes a true artist to make these dresses. You could be rich selling these dresses in Portside, but I don't want you to go there because I already resent sharing your talents with others here." Fortune smiled, her eyes lighting up as she lowered her voice to gossip. "I saw Cyan and her little boy on my way over here and it had me wondering how Pinja is doing, her time must be coming soon. Cyan claims her son is her late husband's, but with all that has happened do you think so? I mean, she spent over a week captive to those raiders and then just escaped from them? I don't think they didn't touch her. But her baby was born last month and didn't look early so maybe it is Coop's. She says it looks like her husband but babies can look like anyone at that age. Is Pinja still struggling?"

"I suppose time will tell if Cyan's baby is her husband's son. I would like to see dear Pinja, I have a hard time picturing that little waif pregnant. I should like to give her something, though I'm not sure what. A crochet hat and booties seem inappropriate since she is not keeping it- unless she changed her mind about giving it up for adoption? It is almost a shame she would not keep the baby and marry your brother- it would fit together so nicely but I like the idea of him marrying my Tria even more- you could make Tria the most beautiful wedding dress! I saw your bother today too though I doubt he noticed me, he was training hard. He has really built up some muscle and was training with his shirt off, if I was 40 years younger I would want him for myself! Wow! I know he's your bother but wow, you seen him lately?"

Bai was very frustrated and discouraged by how Sileas failed at such a simple spell. What hope would she have when her magic was needed?

"May as well have left you to shag your husband." Bai muttered.

"Tria and Lek are practically family. And if anything improper happened, well Lek would just have to marry her." She laughed. "Not that your brother would ever do anything improper."

Millie frowned, trying to figure out how Lek and Tria were practically family. "It doesn't matter what they actually do, it's what people will think they are doing."

Millie didn't like the idea of Lek being forced into a marriage he didn't want. "Still, it is his choice."

"Do you have any idea how many times I have done that?" Millie said with half a laugh. "It's one of the few dangers of being a seamstress. Is it in a spot we can trim the piece from?"
