After being home for two days I was ready to set our again,This time for Sepia Blanca. I'd woken up early and was surprised to find Anna up as well. If you know Anna like I do, she is never up before the sun. I found her in the dining hall having her morning tea.
"Good morning," I said taking my seat.
"Oh, good morning!" she said excitedly nearly spilling her tea.
I smiled and poured my tea as the kitchen maid brought me my breakfast. I ate as Anna sat their watching me.
"Did you sleep well?" I asked her.
"Hmm? Oh yes! I did thank you." she said.
She continued to watch me.
"Anna, I'm still going to leave."
"But what happens if you find something?"
"Would it necessarily be a bad thing?"
"Yes, I mean no I mean oh Elsa I don't want you to leave. What if you miss the baby's birth? Or the the announcement party?"
"You know I don't like parties."
She gave me a look and I chuckled softly. That got her to smile a little bit.
"I promise I will only begone a few weeks. I'll be back before the snow falls and before your baby's birth."
"Are you sure?"
I finished my breakfast as the my chambermaid, Vivian, brought my trunk down. Kirstoff, Anna, and Olaf where there to send me off after hugging each one, I held Anna's hand for a moment.
"I will be fine. I'll be home before you know it." I assured her.
Anna nodded and I could see the tears forming at her eyes. Kristoff held her while I climbed into the carriage. All too soon I was on the boat and Arendelle was far behind me.
I arrived in Sepia Blanca a day later and embraced the warmth. I put on my gloves once more and stepped off the boat.
