[~father~ and ~mother~: Sythyry uses words that might better be translated as 'distant parent' and 'active parent', referring to who raised the child rather than who took what role in engendering zir.]
Hezimikkinen was not happy with me. I'm not welcome at the Ducal palace again, unless I'm invited, and that probably will only be for Creation Day parties. ~Mother~ had arranged for Hezimikkinen to give me an allowance, but they never discussed how much. Now it's to be a hundred and twenty lozens a month, plus tuition. I don't think that's a lot, since I have to find somewhere to live, too, instead of staying in the palace. That's tomorrow morning, though; I can stay here in the Blue Brocade Suite one more night.
One odd thing about this notebook -- I found a note about the Gormoror Professor of Durudor at the academy tucked into it. If Bandazure had the least bit of a sense of humor I'd suspect her of doing it... I wonder who did? The paper is very odd, as smooth as if it had been polished -- it's paper, not parchment, but it's sort of grown into the first page. I'd thank Cowboy_R for the warning if I could tell who it was.
