Lord Havelock Vetinari
A pen is poised over the paper for a brief moment.|
I have not heard from Havelock in a long while. I must conclude that he has gotten over the grief his young lady caused him.
He dips the pen in the ink and begins a new paragraph.
Alison has coerced a promise from me to hug her more often. That isn't, actually, a hardship, but I must pretend as if it is. Dignity is everything, is it not. She is a remarkable young woman. What on the disc she sees in me to make her my friend is, as ever, a mystery.
Margolotta has vanished back to Uberwald. Not surprising, as she is as busy as I am. It is a wonder she was around as long as she was, actually. I must say, I believe I miss her. But not, I must add, her pointed comments about Rufus.
Ah, Rufus. An admirable man, a wonder of a clerk. I do not know what I would do without him. But... I do not understand all that I feel about him. Perhaps I am developing a bond of friendship. Perhaps... no. I shall not think of this.
