Dear Prue,
I arrived safely in town, and you may congratulate me. I got my old job back today. I didnít even have to do any begging. Mr. Simon actually appeared rather glad that I came in and asked him if it was still available and not the least bit upset about that I had to leave at the end of last summer. He even asked if I would be willing to visit the team arenas during the team dueling season. Of course I said yes. However, I did have to get a different apartment. I found one I can afford. Itís fairly close to work, but not the best of neighborhoods. Actually, itís not really so much an apartment as a room. But it has all the necessary furniture in it and the mattress is fresh and soft. Itíll do for now. Thereís even an ice cream shop just down the street.
Did Sandy have her puppies yet? Give her a hug from me.
Love, Mira

Dear Prue,
You wonít believe what happened to me today. Rumors in this town must be traveling even faster than at home. One of my old regulars must have somehow heard of me having gotten the job back, and immediately sent some coins over as advance payment for at least a couple of monthsí worth of gum, candy and water. Isnít that just fabulous? Iíve not even been to work yet. Now Iím even more excited about getting to start on Monday and no matter how the first day goes, Iíll have at least some coins to bring to Mr. Simon.
Love, Mira

Dear Prue,
Your first letter arrived this morning. It is so good to hear from you. Donít worry about there only being three puppies and not enough to go around. Itís probably for the best. The apartment is really too small for one of Sandyís pups to be happy.
The first day back to work went well. I got to be on twilight isle, thatís where the mages cast spells at another and goblins are underfoot everywhere, while a challenge match was going on. But itís tough making any sales there. Mages must not have much of a sweet tooth. Business was a lot better Outback where the wrestlers and boxers go to fight. They tip better there, too.
Love Mira

Dear Prue,
Iím in Love! No, not with a guy, but with this the most dreamy dress Iíve ever seen. I took a walk in the newer part of town by the stars end bar earlier today, and there it was in the store window. It is hot pink with dark blue edges, no sleeves, like it came out of a science fiction picture, only prettier, and totally unaffordable.
There was an auction for charity at the arena last weekend. They auctioned off each other to be slave for a day and to make money for a tournament. From what I hear everyone that attended had a blast. I may have enjoyed that, too. But I didnít find out about it until last night.
Love Mira

Dear Prue,
Thank you so much for the cookies. They taste just like the ones Mom used to make.
I got to work at the challenge match last evening. It was busy. There were even baby dragons around the ring. I guess they belonged to the immensely tall draconian who was one of the duelers in the ring. Their antics distracted me so much, I'm sure I missed out on a sale or two.
Of course there was also the obligatory dolt. This one had his face painted in the Egyptian style and would have been handsome if he hadn't smirked so evilly most of the time. He tried to push me around and suggested I should be kneeling to him. The arrogance! But I did exactly what Mr. Braxx showed me a while back. You remember me showing you about lighting a cigar? It worked like a charm, too. The bloody bloke got nervous like Ė not really, but sort of Ė you know what I mean. I was so worried at first that he might upset the tray or send me off without paying, but he did neither and even gave me the promised tip. It's a good thing, too, I didn't have to resort to ďplan bĒ. Mr. Simon might not have liked that.
Love Mira

Dear Prue,

You may congratulate me. I found an extra job and already have a third of the money for that dress I told you about. Mr. Simon asked me to baby-sit his daughter while she is here. So far Sarah, that's the girl's name, has been a little darling. But she has that sort of cherubby face, you just know she's gonna wrap you around her little finger and then go find trouble behind your back. Tomorrow I am to take her to the zoo in the afternoon. Do you have any ideas I could use to keep her busy with? One can only tell so many stories to a little girl before she gets bored.

Love Mira

Dear Prue,
I'm so sorry to hear about the barn and glad that no one was seriously hurt. Thank you for the advice. Sarah loves the little straw and corn dolls. It was a grand idea to let her make the faces. You should have seen how proud she was when she got to show them off.
The postcard is from the Zoo. Sarah only enjoyed the animals for the first half hour or so. Then she was bored with the animals and plants and I think the apes scared her. She just wanted to go home after we saw them. Even cotton candy wasn't doing the trick to cheer her up or coax her into going to another exhibit after the gorilla flashed his yellow teeth at her.
Love Mira

Dear Prue,

Iím sorry Iím just now getting to sit down to write. There was an ice cream social the day I returned and Mr. Simon wanted me to work right away. That turned out to have been a good thing. He just had me take flowers instead of the tray and the people there were pretty generous. I even got to keep some of those pretty roses for myself.

Anyway, I made it back into town all in one piece, safe and sound and Ms. Mill didnít rent my room out to anyone else while I was away. Everything is still right where I left it. And you were so worried.

While I was away a couple of new places opened up for business. Iím curious if Iím going to get to try to sell stuff there, too. Oneís a Tavern and the other place is a combination of a coffee shop and a book store. It looks to be a very cool place, but probably not so much one for selling chocolate and cigarettes. Maybe I can go there some time just for fun. I donít know yet when theyíre open.

Howís Alfred doing? Is Cassy still giving him trouble? Write when you can.

Love Mira

Dear Prue,

You wouldnít believe just what I saw when my rounds took me by the Red Dragon Inn the other evening! A bull! Not just the kind we have on the field, but one that walked upright and had arms and legs instead of just legs. I wonder if he has feet or hooves. He certainly had hands and he was drinking something out of an ale mug. He was talking, too. Yelling actually or Iíd not have heard him talk. The place was stuffed full of people. It was just the most amazing thing to see. This town has the oddest assortment of people, but that must be the strangest I saw so far.

But business was great! I almost sold out of all the fancy boxed chocolates that evening and a bunch of people were generous and gave tips. I sure could use a few more days like that. Except perhaps without the smart dressed lord that prefers his cigars lit. Those things are yucky! And itís so difficult not to cough. It does make for large tips, though, so it isnít all bad.

Last night did not go so well as far as work goes. I had the worst of luck and managed to get everywhere just as they were closing and people leaving. Mr. Simon is on vacation, so at least until he gets back I wonít be able to make up for the slow days with baby sitting Sarah.

The postcard shows the market place when no vendors are set up there. Isnít it pretty? But Iíve yet to see it that way, itís always crowded when I have a chance to spend a little time there.

I hope to get a letter from you soon.

Love Mira

Dear Prue,

Hahahaha! Youíre so funny! No one is asking me out on a date, much less dozens of smart dressed lords. Thatís just too silly. When would I be going on a date anyway? Those things are in the evenings when Iím working.

Wow, that Cassy is bad! Poor Alfred. He should get rid of her. Iím sure there are plenty of nice girls that would love to go out with him that wouldnít pull such stunts on him. Let me know when he wisens up.

This morning I managed to squeeze out a little time to have a look at the books and coffee shop. What a place! Comfortable seating everywhere, and row upon row of books on two floors. Thereís even a little bakery inside. I wish you could see it.

Love Mira

Dear Prue,

What a night I had! You had better be sitting be sitting down with a cup of coffee, because this is going to be the longest letter ever!

The evening started out extra slow. There was absolutely no one Outback, which is bad because the brawlers are usually good customers. And when I first got to the Inn no one there seemed to want anything and I was starting to worry it was going to be like last week when two candy bars a night was about all the business I could get.

Then I had the oddest customer. The man war a bright red hooded cloak, the hood pulled so far forward I couldnít even see his face. Creepy! His voice was creepy, too, more like an entire choir talking at once. He even knew my name! But a customer is a customer and not to be ignored. And he could have heard my name and Mr. Simonís somewhere before, at the time though it just added to the weirdness. It turned out he just wanted some dark chocolate, though, and he tipped well. The lady he was with he told that he lusted for chocolate as much as she lusted for human blood. Eew. Can you imagine that? I was glad to get away from them again.

After that I got busy in a hurry. There was even a lady that wanted those candy cigarettes I told you about and she was so delighted to get them, too. And then the evening turned all weird on me again, but in a good way.

There was this man dressed like a gypsy and talking in the strangest accent that sounded like he was well into his cups. But he didnít act like a gypsy at all. At first he just wanted a pack of cigarettes, and he overpaid quite a bit with paper money. Iím just glad Mr. Simon told me about those papers a while back. I tried to tell him, too, that he way over tipped, but the man refused to take any of his papers back.

For the rest of the evening the customers were normal in comparison. Then, I was just about ready to call it a night; the gypsy man waved me over again. He wanted the lady that was sitting with him and his friend to pick anything she wanted, but she had gotten some chocolate from me earlier. He still talked her into a box of chocolates. And then he introduced me to his friend, Locke Carnelia. Thatís a funny name, isnít it? He was dressed all in steel, not something I get to see much of.

He was odd, too. At first he said he couldnít afford chocolate and a moment later he wanted to buy just about everything chocolate left in the tray. I think the gypsy man gave him those papers though to pay for all that chocolate. I was just about done pulling everything chocolate from the tray when he decided that three boxes were plenty. And they say women canít make up their minds! But he was nice and helped put the other stuff back into the tray. Then the gypsy man wanted to buy everything that was left, cigars and all. I certainly wasnít about to say no to that!

Then, get this, Locke Carnelia asked me what I would like to drink and he got me cola! I didnít quite know how to react I was so surprised. For a while I thought I was dreaming, all sold out and getting a cola from such a fine knight, that was just too good to be true, right? But it was actually happening. I was so excited I canít even remember what we talked about. He was really nice, too, and didnít pinch me even once.

Youíd think that was plenty of excitement for one evening, but not so. When the cola was gone and I had said good night, I went to drop of the tray and an order for the next day along with the coins at the Outback for Mr. Simon like I always do before going home. I was just about half way home when it happened.

Now, donít you worry, Iím just fine.

So, anyway, there were these two thugs that thought to rob me. Get this, they thought I had jewels! What idiots. And youíll be so proud of me; I actually remembered to scream Ďfireí just like you told me to despite being ever so scared. Then I kicked one and bit the fingers of the other who put his hand over my mouth. That might not have been the smartest thing to do, because then they pulled out knives.

And wouldnít you know it, out of the darkness came the knight in shining armor just as one of those dolts threw me to the ground. Well, the armor was dull rather than shining, but I was mighty glad that he happened to be there. He was very knightly, too, and gave the thugs fair warning. Not they listened. Like I said earlier, idiots!

Anyway, he made short work of them and when I tried to thank him he just waved that off. Prue, you just have to think of something! It was the same knight that had invited me for a cola earlier. And he said he only happened along because he was looking for a spot to make camp. The poor thing didnít even have a room to stay at. So you see, I have to think of something. He definitely deserves some kind of reward for dealing with those thugs. Now I have to find a different way home, or maybe Iíll ask Mr. Simon if I can drop off the tray and coins in the mornings instead.

Wow, this got long. I hope everyone at home is doing okay.

Love, Mira

Dear Prue,

Mr. Simon is back from his vacation and he looks well rested. He seemed happy too with how I handled things while he was away, too, and with the list of things I had for him to re-order.

I think I have a new favorite customer, too. There was a darling young woman that bought one or two of everything sweet I had. She didnít eat it all herself, of course, or sheíd be round as a ball. And she came back for more later in the evening.

Do you remember me telling you about a creepy customer in a red cloak? I ran into him again yesterday, and let me tell you, that one gives me the chills. Iím not even sure why, maybe itís those insanely long fingernails of his or maybe itís his excessive use of possessive pronouns. On logical reflection, he was actually rather nice. He had already heard that I was attacked the night before and he gave me a knife so that next time I would be able to protect myself. Before you go off again about not accepting gifts from strangers, I did mention that to him. He said I could trade the knife for a bar of chocolate and then it wouldnít be a gift.

I saw Locke again, too, the knight errant. He invited me for another cola again! Isnít that sweet? He even offered to teach me how to use that knife this afternoon. But I forgot to ask him where to meet him for that, silly me.

Alfredís just hopeless. Iíd never stay with anyone that canít see me because heís hanging out with my girl friends. Whatís wrong with his friends anyway that they would hang out with his girl and heís not invited? He should start hanging out with Cassyís girl friends and get him some new best buddies, and you can tell him I said that, too.

Love, Mira

Dear Prue,

Your brownies are the best! Thank you so much. Ms. Mill said to be sure and tell you how much she enjoyed them, too. She was happy that I thought to offer her one. And thank you for the box for Locke, too. I knew youíd think of something good. Iím sure he can find a good use for your quilt and heíll prefer the swords and helmets pattern over goslings, hats and flowers. Iíll take his box to the inn the afternoon, that way someone can give it to him when he gets there and heíll have it even should I miss him. I have to deliver a message to him from Mr. Simon, too. He said for me tell Locke that he could have room and board at the Outback for as long as he wanted. Isnít that just nice of Mr. Simon?

I found Locke, too, yesterday afternoon for that knife handling lesson he had offered. That was ever so interesting. I may actually have learned something, too. But before you go telling everyone that I was on a date with a knight, he did point out that he was just doing his duty when I thanked him for the lesson. So you see, still no date. He did bring me another cola, though, while I was working at the inn last evening. But then he went back to the bar chatting with people.

There was a very nice lady there last evening, too, several actually. One invited me to sit down for a while as she was looking at the flowers in my basket. That was really considerate of her. I hope her violets still look as fresh and pretty as the ones I have left over. The other nice lady saved me from having to listen to anymore nonsense from a gent that wanted to have a dozen roses to give to his lady friend for free. The gall! He tried to tell me he hired the thugs that tried to rob me and threatened to hire more of the same if I wasnít giving him the flowers, right there with all those people around. Anyway, the lady, one of Lockeís friends, called me away from him, and I was very glad for that. The rest of the evening was rather boring and very slow, apart from one nice man who bought 18 roses at once. But he left right after and I didnít get to see the lucky lady he got them for. Then Locke offered to walk with me when I was ready to leave. He hardly talked at all though on the way. I guess he was too busy keeping a look out for any thugs that may stumble too close. Nothing happened, though.

Love, Mira

Dear Prue,

Locke loved your quilt and the brownies and he sends his appreciation. I got to meet up with just before work to give him your box. He also got to meet Mr. and Mrs. Simon yesterday. Mr. Simon was extra nice and they seemed to get on well. Mrs. Simon is going to have a new little one and they already asked me to baby-sit that one, too, once it comes around. Thatíll be so much fun.

Later in the evening I got to see Locke in regular clothes without his armor. So that he could get a hug rather than his armor, he said. He does look impressive with armor, but my, does he look ever so handsome without.

I had an exalted customer last evening. The King of Westridge got his Queen a dozen of roses. At least I think they were the King and Queen of Westridge. But Iíve seen them before tending the bar, so maybe them being king and queen was just part of their little game. Someone said that they were role playing their first date. Isnít that romantic?

On the way home something odd happened. I came across a woman with a fancy weapon that was hunting enormous rats. I didnít even know the beasties could be that big. I hope she catches all of them.

Love, Mira

Dear Prue,

Ms. Mill, when she saw me this morning, invited me in to have a look at her brand new baby kittens. Her cat had four of them just last night. They are so adorable and so tiny; I wish you could see them, three gray ones and one with reddish stripes. She offered me to pick one of them to keep. I reminded her that she didnít allow pets in the rooms and that I wouldnít know where else to keep one. She must have liked that, because then she offered for me to pick one for her to keep and for me to name, and that I could come downstairs when I wasnít working to play with it. I think sheís lonely for company. The other people she rents rooms to just say hello to her when they meet her as they come in or leave.

Locke asked me if I could take a day off to show him around town, so Iíll be doing that today. Iíll look for another postcard for you while weíre walking all over town. I showed him the park yesterday already when he walked me home after work last night. He even carried that heavy tray for me. Wasnít that just sweet? I gave him a kiss, too, just as you suggested, and when he said good night he said that heíd like to have more of those. Heís so adorable.

Love Mira
