My dear sister, Kayla
I'm hoping that this will get to you quickly and that you will not worry about me. I am well. I have taken another job, or you could say, have had another job thrust upon me. It's not the first time, and hopefully won't be the last. Sadly though, I was required to cross the waters again. I know that you worry about me being so far away, and as always, I worry too, but this is something that I need to do. The reward alone is worth it. Besides, it is just a simple retrieve job, it will be over quickly and then I will come back home.
My companions seem like a good lot and while we are still getting to know each other, I'm sure they will have my back as I have theirs. You would be surprised to hear that I am actually working with a half giant. He is very different from the ones I have previously encountered, very gentle and caring for a big brute. I hope there are more like him about. We also have a bird in our midst, but not like us. You were always better in history than I was, so you could probably figure something out. Then we have an alaryan, a fish, a Syvryan, and a fey? I think they are called and even a goblin. So a very diverse bunch.
Kayla, I'm sorry for teasing you when we were kits. I'm sorry for my stubbornness. I'm sorry for not being there for you always. I'm sorry for so much. Don't blame yourself for what I became. I will return as quickly as I am able to.
Tell the Kits down the hill that I will bring them something back if they behave and mind their studies. Leoned especially. Could you also tell old lady Taila that when I return I would like to work in the mill for the season. Bet that was something you never thought I would ask. Me, working in a mill? It would be a nice change of pace, and I would be able to assist you at the hall while in my off hours.
Know that everything I do, I do for you and that I love you so much and miss you always. Stay strong and as always, pray for me.
Your little brother,
Here is some gold that I earned on a side job, it should give you another few months until I get home. And don't worry, I'm making sure to keep some so I don't go hungry. I don't want another scolding like last time. Again, love ya Kayla
