Leaving the Cherry Blossom House became increasingly difficult. Tsuzuki appears to be having problems adjusting to his new life within a structure that holds so many deep memories. But I believe Jason finally got through to him.

I am now preparing myself for the next leg of my journey. Leaving a little later than I had intended, I opted to spend the night in Molag Mar again, at the Penitent Pilgrim. It would seem that the business in the area has picked up since the nearby mines were cleared of the dreugh nests.

I can only imagine what I'll be faced with when I reach the site of the ruins I promised to explore for Eoki and Sun-in-Shadow. I pray that with all of the delays I've been met with, I'm not too late.
