25th Day of the Sleeping Moon, 5th Annum of the 8th Kringle Dynasty
I suppose I have a lot to be grateful for. I have my brother and my sister still. Sis tells me Mom and Dad left us with an amazing estate. I’ve never seen it, though. I’ve always been away serving in the Dynastic Legion. I haven’t even seen my family since I was very young, but now that I’m the head of the family, I guess that will change. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy my work with the DL, but it’ll be nice to be home again. I only wish I’d seen Mom and Dad before…

It’s All Winter’s Eve in a few days. I guess this is somehow all symbolic of the changing of cycles and the coming of the new annum. I wonder what it will be like to live in a house. Do we have house keepers? I hope I can learn how to cook and do laundry. I know it sounds strange, but I’ve never done these simple things before.

I’ve really enjoyed my trip along the railways. The chatter of the wheels is so soothing. It has given a rhythm to my thoughts, almost like singing along to a nostalgic song. I should probably get some sleep now. The train will reach home in a few hours and It’ll be morning already. I want to look my best when Brother and Sister see me. I hope they don’t resent that I’ve been away.
