Oh, summer. Half the time I love it, love going to the farmers' markets and getting loads of fruit that we never get at home and going out in the sun and feeling everything so alive. And the other half I feel like a damp dishcloth that needs to be wrung out and I've got a pressure headache from the storms and I want to get out of this hot, stinking, noisy, dirty city. I know Aidan and I are going away in a couple of months, but I don't know if I can wait that long. And he's on patrol now, and then there's the Moon coming up... damn it all.

If I feel this cranky, though, I can't imagine how Marti must feel. Mother always told me it was terrible being pregnant in summer, and I believe her. Not like we can control these things, really, but still.

Aidan's birthday! I may have splurged a little. But he deserves it.

*goes over to Aidan's desk, carrying a bag, and perches on the edge of the desk*

Hey, you busy?

*out walking the dogs before it gets too late, though it's safer with the sun still up*

What on earth has gotten into you two? *trying not to let Logan and Niamh drag her too far, growls a little* I don't mind following you, but could you at least keep from pulling my arm out of its socket?

*allows them to pull her towards the mouth of an alley, blinks when Logan veers over to the side and whines*

...Who's there?

*steps closer*

...Sean?

Spring is here, finally. Thank all the gods. Trees are flowering and the air is warm and soft and everything's alive and awake again. I feel like this winter went on for years, and I'm so glad it's over.

It does make me worry, though. From what I hear there've been more vampires than usual, and with more people out enjoying the nice weather that's only going to get worse. And the Moon's coming up, and I don't know if Aidan's going to want to be out more. Well, more than he would anyway. He's staying in the flat this time. I know my magic's working fine and hopefully this time I wouldn't panic if something went wrong, but even if it all goes normally I don't want him throwing himself at the wards all night.

But I'm not going to worry about that now. I think I'm going to see if Aidan wants to go on a walk before the sun goes down.

I hate this. I hate that he didn't let me stay with him up in the flat, that he insisted on staying in the cage when I know he hates it. I hate that he made me "take a break," when I know my magic's working fine. I hate that I couldn't stay with him in case it made him go into a frenzy. And that I've had to wait till moonset to let myself in and take care of him.

*stands outside the cage, looking down at Aidan*

Cariad?

I know everyone thinks I should just get over it already. Nobody's said anything to me, but I can tell. And I hate that, because... I can't.

I'm afraid to use my magic in case something goes wrong again. I'm afraid it will happen again, because it wasn't like the other illusions, it was something very real going very wrong. I'm afraid of what's going to happen with the next Moon; I don't know that I can trust my own Wards anymore. I don't know if it's going to happen again, because the Djinn knows the best way to get to Ciar is through Aidan, and the best way to get to Aidan is through his Mate.

I'm afraid of what's going to happen. And I don't know how to stop it.

Sometimes I wish I had that handy lycanthropic healing factor. I've still got a bruise on my shoulder, and while I don't mind it being there - it's covered by my sweaters and all - it's a bit sore, particularly with my bra strap over it.

It doesn't really matter, though. I'm just sort of absently poking at it every so often, while I'm sitting here on night duty. But I'd rather be bored than occupied. I hope it's nice and quiet and nobody needs me. Of course, that's seeming less likely. Everybody seems to be talking about how many more vampires there are lately. Something's got to be done - we're attacking the symptoms, but not the disease, so to speak. I just don't know what could be done.

I think the last traces of Elaine's scent have finally faded, thanks be. I wasn't going to skip the party, of course; I know Aidan didn't really approve, but he didn't say I couldn't go, and everything was fine. It was lovely seeing her doing so well, and when her father arrived it was like something out of a film. (I hope she liked the present I gave her; it wasn't much, but the rowan's meant to protect against psychic harm among other things, and it's the tree for her birthday, and fixing it in an amulet seemed like a good way for her to carry it with her.) But Aidan was certainly grumpy when I got home. Too bad.

It was good to see everyone in a non-infirmary context, though. Which has been strange in and of itself - just that things are set up differently than the one the team in California was using, and I'd just started to get used to that one when I came back here. It's another way in which it's been good to be home - with the people I know, in a place where I know just where everything is and I've got my cache of equipment rather than working out of a suitcase. Of course I'm never happy to see people hurt, but luckily nothing too bad has happened while I was away or since I've been back. Fortune smiles upon us for a moment, I suppose.

...I'm rambling terribly, aren't I? I'd better go sort out dinner before I lapse into complete gibberish.

Gods, what a miserable three weeks that was. Obviously I'm not meant to be in a hot climate, and I'm really not meant to live among all the weird plants they have out there. Palm trees? It's like they're speaking a different language, or like I'm a relative from a part of the family they'd rather forget existed. Very strange.

And the team out there... I may not always get along with the people on our team, but they don't look at me like I'm an idiot. And what happened to Dylan...

...no. I don't want to think about that. I'm just going to focus on how good it is to be back on the ground, back on the right coast in the right climate. Back in New York, and back home, whatever that may mean.
