For all that Westel decries my tendency to pick up promising ‘projects’ and give them a boost, it seems that he has no less a generous spirit. Granted that young Avelryn was a bit more polished and put-together than darling Kuvasei when we met, but his need was not much less, and despite his gruff demeanor regarding the situation I noticed that Westel did not hesitate to provide for the young man.
So many projects. Kuvasei and I have been discussing school, lately, and I think if she can be released from her contract with the Farstriders (even on a temporary basis) it might be the best thing for her. Then there’s the outstanding invitation to have Ashien for dinner, which must be followed up on… and I must do something about Westel’s estrangement from his blood nephew and niece as well. Hadrian at least is a very intelligent young man, and it would do well for him to be reacquainted with his only remaining uncle.
One thing at a time, Astoreth. One at a time.
