At last, I have had a restful night!
I returned to the Bucket to find out what Mrs. Underby could do for me, besides brew fresh pots of coffee. She gave me a cup of tea and then read the residue in the cup in the manner of a fortuneteller, then she gave me a pebble and told be to keep it on my skin as I slept, and I would sleep well for a week, but not more. Then I was to return if the dreams returned.
I do not care how it worked, but it worked.
Lapis has been watching me like a hawk the past week. I cannot decide if I like him or not. he seems satisfied that I have returned to my work as he is less interested in watching me now.
I will experiment with this “charm” for the rest of the week and see if it is actually the source of the cure, or the a medicine in the tea, or a suggestion on a weary mind.
Logic will prevail.
