She tilted her head, "I still think you have much to offer... I don't feel I ever got the whole story from Mahasin. There's a level of trust there that I don't have. Perhaps she has something else? Or another person you can trust that can help?"

"She has Dunfrey's journal, but it's heavily rotted and damaged... you've probably seen it already anyway. I suppose I could try to go back and try to glean more?" She said, toying with the edge of her veil, eyebrows knitting with a frown. "Most of what she told us was related to the missing page, which you already found."

Perhap Ide Mohan or another important member of the community who interacts with many people. I look the way I do... creates mistrust even among people who should be friends.

"Perhaps... I will need to know everything you've found to be able to ask... the names of these other crewmembers, that sort of thing." When the coffee finally arrived, she served Bellena first, then herself, taking a sip of the dark, bitter drink quietly, looking a little bit tired. "If you will allow me to accompany you as you continue your search I would be grateful. At least it's something."

She nodded, "I'm planning on going out later this afternoon. Want to see if I can get a hold of a Will or something from one of the old captains."

"Thank you, Lella Bell'eza... Hopefully something will come up."

"I'm sure it will my dear. We'll make sure this doesn't fall into the wrong hands." She smiled and squeezed Ruqqayah's hand in a friendly and reassuring manner.

She smiled and squeezed back, shaking her head. "I just don't want a war. There are some people who'll take any excuse on both sides."

Bellena's lips tightened a bit, "We can't control everything... it is likely there is a war coming. But hopefully we can make conditions better and save as many lives as we can."

"I won't give up preventing a war until it's started. Until then, a strong enough will can accomplish a lot," she said seriously, then smiled. "Have hope, Lella Bell'eza. It's not over until it's over."

She chuckled once through her nose, "Your optimism is refreshing my dear. Either way, lets do our best to save as many as we can."

She nodded in agreement. "Of course. Wanting to do that is why I learned mostly healing magic."

She nodded, "Have you always had such desires? To help people? Or is this something you have come upon later in life?"

She glanced down and smiled a little. "I always kind of wanted to, but it was more like... supporting my lord. After Bashiri passed, it focused much more, though."

"Bashiri is your brother right?" She asked.

She nodded, "Loss can change our lives in significant ways. When I lost my father I myself had to make a few important decisions on who and what I wanted to be."

"What sort of person were you before?"

"Unsure... might be the best word for it. I grew up in Merenae until I was seven, and then was sent to the Jewel for 10 years away from my family and friends. My father wanted me to study things of the world and hopefully come back and impart that knowledge to my people. But as time went on, I started to identify with the Tortoise who were taking care of me a bit more than with Merenae... but Merenae was still my home... is still my home in some ways. But then when I was a teenager I set out and became the first officer on a ship run by a friend of mine. I got to see much of the known world. Experience a great many things. It was eye-opening... and confusing at the same time. Like an overload of stimuli. It got easier just to not think at all. To be honest, for a lot of it I was just running around without thinking; living life without a care. Content just to float along with the stream of life and pick up new bits of knowledge along the way." She smiled distantly as she looked down at the table as she spoke.

"And while that is well and good, and I still require a bit of that kind of freedom in my life. A lot of it began to feel empty. I came to realize the importance of people rather than some quest for knowledge or a set destination. The people we share this journey in life are what is most important. When my father passed, I began to feel the value of responsibility. To have people depend on you and to be able to provide meaningful guidance and support is a special relationship. I learned that I would have to make choices on where my energies needed to be put. I knew I wanted to help people and reduce suffering in the world, but who and where and how were questions I had never considered fully." She smiled again.

"And that's how I ended up here. I decided to prioritize those that I knew and cared for personally first. I am only one person, I have limitations on what I can affect and who I can reach... but if I start with the people around me, focus on the here and now, not the future or the past... Then I feel I can continue to grow as an individual and potentially help more and more people as time passes. Then... no matter what happens, or what is required of me... I know that I'll be ready for it. And hopefully I will be able to make the world just a bit brighter because of my existence. Even if it is only a flicker of light, it is better than absolute darkness."
