I started my day in the afternoon. I went to a lovely Salon in the Aether Salon given by Miss Diogeneia. It was lovely and I learned some things. (Mainly how people curse here, but all the same, it was fascinating!) After that I spoke to Baron some, and walked The Palisades.
The Baron was correct. The view is stunning. I walked for a good bit before deciding to go back to the sub and look at my list of social events. I noticed that the Robber Baron’s Ball is Saturday… and I froze. I needed something special to wear and I noticed that I did not have anything suitable, as I had already worn my best dress to the costume ball that was held here…
So I did what any woman would do. I went to my local outfitters to see what I could find. I managed to find something wearable but when I put it on, I noticed that something was missing. Jewelry. So I remembered that I had brought my jewelry with me when we moved here, I had simply forgot about it.
I rummaged around in my things until I found the box. And then I sat and went through them. Memories, every one of them. Every piece of jewelry is directly connected to a good memory that I have and all I could do was sit and smile, through teared up eyes. It hurts to remember good things sometimes, but I know that that’s just the psyche’s way of telling me that I don’t have to forget anyone I’ve ever loved. It will help me remember. So I chose a few pieces that may work with my new dress and I put on another piece that I used to wear quite often at home.
Then, Miss Erehwon invited Arnold and me to a dance… And I took a nap at the hospital and ended up late. But when I arrived there was lots of fun to be had and I…did manage to …dance some….
And after I met up with Pippy again, I checked her wounds. They are doing much better, and I am glad that she’s mending. I was afraid, what with how small she is, that her mending would take longer, but apparently she mends just fine. I let her bathe, swabbed her mending wounds and re-bandaged her to put her to bed. She’s sleeping now and I’m glad she’s getting better. Now, to find Arnold and implement my plan…
