It's starting to get balmy in Bevelle again, and this stuffy room isn't exactly the easiest place to stay. I've opened the windows to catch a fresh breeze from the ocean but instead of helping I find that I'm often staring off into the horizon. Not a good thing as Dyran is insistent we take care of the Guado organizing problem before the Fall. He's a pest, honestly.

Right now the stars are shining, and its late. I really should get to sleep. I haven't been sleeping like I should, rather reading. Like everyone else I'm obsessed with Spira's history. Currently I'm reading a book about the Al Bhed (and no, my interest is not inspired by a certain blond I could mention). Actually, I should be working and not reading but I need at least this little pleasure.

Though a word from my friends would be deeply enjoyable. I'm almost afraid they'd stage some elaborate rescue operation or something along those lines. They must think I'm chained to my desk and whipped into working. Nothing dramatic, just a friendly hello might be nice.

Ah, another yawn. Perhaps I should retire to my room; I could sleep in the office, though that option isn't very appealing. Not the first time it would have happened but this room offers a much better view of the sky than my own living area.

Twinkle, twinkle little star...

[I'm sorry it took me so long to post. I've been busy lately though I'll have more time, promise! I hope the way I play Baralai is acceptable. When I see him I get this feel of gentle strength and melancholy. He really wants to be free but gives all that up to lead New Yevon because he is the movement's 'pillar of strenght' as to say. Eh, I can't describe it. Hehe]

Good evening, Baralai, how are you feeling? Besides tired, of course.

I haven't heard much of you since the speech in Luca... and I wasn't even really there for that. Didn't it make you nervous, standing there, speaking in front of thousands of people? Lulu had to coax me into being able to speak and afterward, Rikku had to steady me through the halls! It's so nervewracking!

... Though I suppose you had a certain Al Bhed to help you? ::smiles::

((nice post ^^ mine was far too angsty for my own good and now I'm too goofy >b Yuna is so fun to play))

Not really. In all honesty I just sort of tuned everyone out when speaking and didn't really focus on anyone in particular. I just spoke. Nooj's time spent yelling at the Squad really did help sharpen that skill. I think this certain Al Bhed you are referring to actually didn't help. He kept tapping my shin with his foot. But it made him smile, so I didn't mind.

I've been fine. Bevelle is quiet as usual, though there always is the feeling in the air of great importance, or so I'm seeming to find from the trend of people who stream through my door, each with urgent business that must be brought to my attention. I haven't caught this bug, I've actually been slacking off in my work.

How are you doing? I hope everything is well?

[I think Baralai would have some angst. I mean, he's 20 years old and giving up his life to be Praetor, he's almost been killed, had his body emotionally hijacked by a 1000 year old vengeful spirit, and away from Gippal while the whole New Yevon movement seems to need his constant attention. I'd be annoyed too, but he's a very calm, understanding and patient person. That's where I get that melancholy feel from]

Hey Baralai. How are you? Great...another one of those brats. I suspose you are going to venture out in the sandy depths of hell with us again? Correct?

((Hi! I'm so glad you finally came. :D Oh and this is Raiue. ;D))

Noojy! Don't be so harsh on the boy. (Unless I can give him a taste of my fan if he is rude to you Noojy.) Oh...I just thought that we could go and everybody would chicken out. Then it could just be us...

It's good to slack off every once and a while, I suppose. I did in fact once run away from Besaid to try and find something that I wanted. The fact that I'm still searching doesn't bother me all that much.

Everything has slowed down for me in a way. Not as much going on... Leblanc and I aren't exactly rivals anymore... I can't seem to settle down though--the slow times are driving me insane! Maybe I can help you with some of your work someday. ::giggles::

((Indeed. Everything seems to crash around our young praetor... one block from the pillar is removed at a time. I wonder how long he can stand it?))

A visit from Lady Yuna? That would be wonderful. My advisor has been paranoid about the people who see me lately, though I think he'll make an exception for you (either that or I could make him). A fresh face would be greatly appreciated, and a chance for you to see Bevelle again. It has changed (slightly) since your last visit.

Speaking of fresh faces, how is everyone else? Please tell me for the sake of my own sanity that Gippal hasn't been thrown into prison and had his mentality questioned? Is he at least on his semi-best behavior? Nooj too? I don't have much time to speak to either. I shudder to think of the public's response knowing I was in contact with the two. Times have changed, yes, though bitter feelings of the past still linger with people of both parties. Sometimes I can't fix, unfortunately.

[Like Paine said: he's stronger than he looks. Baralai seems like someone who has suffered a lot of disappointments in life. He sort of doesn't expect anything of people anymore. Just does what he feels is right for everyone else and doesn't make anything dramatic. A very 'simple and clean' type of person.]

Baralai! Finally I hear from you, geez. It's been a whole three days. I'm dying over here.

Now, you say this Dyran guy keeps a watch on you. Does he all the time? Night? Middle of the night? Would he be watching near your window? Not that I would climb through it to see you or anything.

...And how'd you know about the rescue operation?

Gippal! I'm sorry my last message was so rushed. I was really supposed to be reviewing a document and instead started to zone out and lost track of time. Please don't die, I wouldn't know what to do if you did.

As for Dryan, I don't understand what the increase in my sudden security means, though I'm sure its just simple paranoia. He's prone to such things including the incident last month when he was convinced the lift to my room was set to make me plummet to my death. Luckily I keep my door locked at nights so unless he knows a good warping spell I doubt he's watching me at night. Of course I could see you shimmying up the side of Bevelle and flopping through my window. Not that I would complain, but with your grace I'll end up healing you again. I think its a good thing I'm a White Mage.

About this 'rescue': We shared rooms in a the squad and...I know you. I think I know how your mind works. Some. But if you must, then I can't stop you. -slight grin-

Man, I miss sharing room in the old days. It was so much easier to grope see you.

I doubt he's watching me at night. I couldn't blame if he was. But still... Maybe you should keep a gun under your pants at night. Uh, I mean... That could lead to some devastating consequences.

[It's all right. The only link they have is through Yuna and...oh wait, you haven't played through. I'll leave the other person a mystery. Rikku seems to get annoyed with him because he calls her 'Lady Yuna' or 'High Summoner Yuna'.]
