I won't be going away with my Master at the end of the month. The details, the practicalities, just didn't work out. And he's right that the schedule, as determined by the primary reason for his trip, wouldn't have been very satisfying for our purposes.
However, he did say there are other possibilities in the future.
So I will pout a little over my current disappointment, and then move on to imagining some new, lovely, evil, challenging, scary, glorious scenarios until he chooses to reveal his plans for me.
I am actually quite happy.
And I will do all I can to make him wish I were with him on that weekend he goes off without me.
