I should have known better than to put my faith in Jaeyn. I told him that if he wanted to be a leader, he needed to act like one. They held another meeting about the Twilight boxes. He didn’t act like a leader. He let Orravar vote again. A vote? Just make a decision. I may not respect it, but at least he would have made one. Instead he just sat back and let it happen again. He’s no leader of mine. I won’t tell Jaellynn this, but he’s no brother to me either.
We left Darnassus last night. I don’t know when we’ll be back. I felt a great sadness as the boat pulled away, but I don’t know what else to do right now. We went to Ironforge. The room we stayed in was tiny and cold, and there were rats in it. But I was glad he was with me, all the same. He’s reluctant to leave, because he doesn’t want to lose his brother. I don’t have any siblings, though I have often wished I did. Maybe it’s simpler that I don’t.
Today we went to Moonglade, to check up on the vines. The disease seems to be entirely cleared up, but there’s still the matter of trying to discover where it came from. Another death knight — a female human one — helped clear them before, and she’s looking into the disease to try to learn about it. I am a bit wary of her, as Jaellynn does not really seem to trust her, but I welcome her help if it will solve this mystery.
He wore his armor. His death knight armor. It seemed defiant, as if he was daring anyone to challenge him about it. It’s a lot harder to forget what he is when he’s wearing that armor, looking so imposing.
He suggested that we also check on the moonkin, since it was close by. There seemed fewer in the grove now. I’m not certain if they have moved out of the area, or if something else has happened to them. We found one recently dead inside one of the caves. Another remained nearby, and I couldn’t help but wonder if it had been its mate. I found blood, but without better examination of the injuries, I could not be certain what caused them. I’m fairly certain they are not fighting among themselves, though. The strange shrines remain, with the spirits of deer, bear, and bird. Overall the flock seems slightly calmer, none of them attacked us this time. At least it’s some progress.
We’d been speaking of going to Hyjal for some time. I know it’s difficult for him. That’s where his mother died, and it’s a place that someone like him may not be very welcome. But with the battle, the druids need all the help they can get. As we crested the mountains, we saw Nordrassil for the first time. It was breathtaking. I am glad he was there to see it with me.
Neither of us was sure where to go, so we reported to the inn. Ysera was there! I could hardly believe my eyes! I didn’t dare to get too close to her, and Jaellynn said we should not stare. He’s right. I saw a few other death knights there, which I hope relaxed him a little. I asked if there were any jobs that needed doing, and they told us to go to the Twilight camp to the south.
The ogres took little notice of us, and Jaellynn felled several of them easily (not at once!). We thought we should look inside the buildings, and we found more of those mysterious boxes, like the one from the camp in Darkshore. We also found more strange devices, and a book. He wanted to take the book, but I figured that might be a bad idea. I copied down some of the symbols to take back to the mages. Maybe one of them will be able to tell us what it says. Either way, I think they need to come and investigate. Strange how I trust them more than the druids at this point.
