    Friday night brought EM Kaen and EM Sezja to the Counselor's Guild in Britain for a little Valentine's fun with the people of Napa Valley. After much chatting and joking, and Sezja letting us all know how she loves us, she began to explain her sad Valentine's Day plight.

    It seems she had comissioned the poet Jeffery of Yew to write a poem for her, but he had yet to deliver. She beseeched us to please go inquire for her as to what the delay was.

    Off we all went to Empathy Abbey to find Jeffery. Upon arrival, we learned that he had lost his inspiration - namely his wife. It seems she had gone to tend to her ill father southwest of the city, and missing her dearly, Jeffery was unable to complete his poem! He asked us to please find what was taking so long, and when she would return.

    Upon finding Jeffery's wife with her ailing father, she beseeched us to find Gregor the Healer east of Yew and request his help. Gregor was a crabby fellow, feeling that this illness was below him, but he did say to let her know that fluids and rest were all that was necessary to heal her father.

    Back to Jeffery's inspiration to give her this good news! She understood and was glad of the news, however felt she was still needed to pull her father past this critical time in his illness and asked that we let Jeffery know.

    Jeffery was understanding, and, with our assistance, nearly completed the poem for Sezja. However, he felt it necessary to send his wife some flowers from the maid Eillish of Zento, as was his tradition. As he finished off the poem, we were to perform the small favor of finding Eillish and delivering his message.

    Off to Zento we went, feeling a bit downtrodden about not being able to deliver Sezja's poem just yet. Here we found that Eillish had become enthralled with a certain kind of flower, the Deepbloom, that grows only in the dungeons of Trammel and was curious to know their color.

    After a bit of searching, the Lilac Deepbloom was located in the dungeon Despise. We rushed back to Eillish to tell her of the discovery.

    Finally, Jeffery let us know that he would deliver Sezja's poem in the mail shortly.

    After much running and backtracking and searching, we finally returned to Sezja to give her news of her poem! In gratitude, she passed out a few tokens of appreciation to those who were first to bring the news. A few Cupid's Bows and several plates of Heart Cookies were passed out.
