Funny, tonight I caught my Father humming to himself over a sermon he was writing. I asked him what it was and he sat back directing his gaze at a portrait of him and my mother and he gave me this really vague answer. He said "Shade, my son, that's the song my heart sings whenever I think of your mother, my beloved Raven, someday your heart will sing to another heart as well and you will know that that's your love." I must have looked puzzled because he followed it with "You'll understand my words someday Shade." after that he patted my head kneeled down and gave me a hug then he went back to his sermon telling me to go back to my religious studies. I went to my room and read my texts but I kept trying to figure out what my father meant what is my heart's song?

So I get to my lectures and what do I see but my old friend Therai and who's on his arm but Larrisa who wears a perpetual stink eye now while her arm decor grins at me like a fool. Well I hope he's happy in the knowledge that he's nothing more than a tool to get under my skin. At least I got somthing out of it though turns out Luceis has my back and told Merissa that I was getting those flowers for her. By Sehanine that girls a drama queen she loves her bad boys. The idea that I was ready to steal from the church gardens and got caught totally had her eating out of the palm of my hand sorta speak. Helped that Leucis and I had exaggerated the break in and punishment a bit. So we went out and she practiced her sparring a while with me she won of course that girl is fierce all though I think she prefers the pin over the K.O. when it comes to her boyfriends. After a bit of wrestling she called it quits and left so I started home. Wouldn't you know it though it was just then that I ran across Kallista who decided it was her personal duty to tend to my cuts and scrapes so I let her tend to me while we sat under the shade of a near by tree. She's such a worrier sometimes it's funny to see the difference in the two of them to one I'm the bad boy to the other the kind boy next door. It's just funny to me that's all I guess people just see what they want to see sometimes.

Touche Amanon, touche. Turns out all my well laid plans were thoroughly trashed last night due to my so-called friend's interference. I was on my way out of the gardens when I see none other than him waiting for me. Turns out I shouldn't have asked Leucis the best way to slip into the gardens since Amanon apparently was in earshot of our conversation. I got to spend the night praying for the goddess to forgive my carelessness while my father lectured me on how I need to stop being such a braggart and how I should settle on one girl rather than trying to juggle them as I have been. What business is it of his who I date and when I'm like the wind you can't tame the wind! All the while Amanon laughing his way home knowing that he had his retribution. I suppose I deserved that but this isn't over yet.

Well I'm in the dog house... again. This time Larrisa's told me she'll never comeback and I'm a no good spoiled pretty boy and that even though we weren't exclusive that she feels slighted that I stood her up. and it didn't take long for the vultures to start circling I hear Therai's already working on poetry. I'm sure he'll be sulking around for weeks after I get her to calm down. I already have a plan for tonight after she cools off a bit I'll steal me some of the fresh moon lilies in the temple gardens and find my way to her window. When she hears me singing outside I'll have her melting in my arms. She loves this kind of dramatic showboating. Poor Therai he thinks he really has a chance but all's fair and he's way out of his league.

So it finally happened we got our research papers back and I aced it of course, Amanon however was not so pleased with his grades nor amused with my hi jinx. According to Kallista we are no longer on speaking terms but that will last all of a week this kind of thing never sticks for long, Amanon is terrible at holding a grudge. This did however earn me some time with his sister when he was busy pouting so today wasn't a total wash. It was great like something right out of a romance novel. We sat at the cafe down the block from the temple and talked over a couple cups of coffee and watched the sunset below the horizon and the white moon rise up into the sky and it was perfect until I remembered I was supposed to meet Lerissa tonight across town... I'm so totally screwed.

This morning at breakfast Dad told me to go thank everyone for the gifts I received on my birthday. So after my theology lessons, in which I cleverly swapped Amanon and my own research papers and I can't wait to see the look on his face when he finds out, I went to my uncle's to thank him and Shayla. Aunt Neme and Uncle Art were thrilled but Shayla looked at me with the most puzzled look on her face. So I ask her if she remembered what she got me to which she says "of course how could I forget." to which I ask "what was it then?" turns out she didn't buy this journal my father did and let her take the credit so she would have something to give. She got this look on her face like she thought she was the worst little cousin in the world I think she almost cried I didn't think it meant that much to her. I still think the world of Shayla she's practically my little sister I've protected her more times than I can count and when I'm down she's always there to pick me up. So I told her it's no big deal and just having her there was enough for me but she wouldn't take no for an answer she ran into her room and came out with a hairpin with a tiny rose on it and said it was her favorite pin and that I had to take it. After some objections I tucked it away beneath my new headband and told her I'd cherish it but... WHAT THE HELL AM I GOING TO DO WITH A HAIRPIN!? Thinking back to the paper, I wonder if I'll get extra points for guile and trickery?
*OOC note Shade's lockpicking tools include a bobby pin with a decorative clay rose*

My 12th birthday and what does Shayla buy me... An empty book. Oh well I suppose it's the thought that counts. Dad says I should use it to log my thoughts so I can look back on them and reflect, I guess I'll humor the old man. Speaking of which I think he forgot altogether all I got from him was his headband says it looks good on me. Uncle Art is the best though he gave me the latest book writen by one of my favorite authors and a hand signed bookmark I think Auntie Neme helped him. All and all today was great though I even got to go to the Harvest Moon Festival with Kallista and Amanon she looked so cute looking up all wide-eyed as the fireworks danced in her vision. Too bad Amonon had to ruin it for me seriously I know he's her brother but it was only an innocent peck on the cheek he didn't have to dump his cider down my vest I'll get him for that later. Well it's late now so I guess I'll pick this up later.

Since I do not use this blog for anything at the moment I've decided to use it as a game tool. I will essentially be turning my Blog into Shade's personal journal. I will be starting it a year before Shade's banishment from his village and try to catch up to the current game it may be a while since 5 years is a long time but if I can finish it I may give you guys and even myself better insight into my character.
