Gold day

No chance to go to the market today, again. Sev required me all day. We went out and met with all his friends, and I invited many of mine over in the evening for a little spontaneous party. I let it be nosed about that Sev was expecting to be called to the Hall of Kings one of these days soon, though I didn’t tell them why. I know how to keep my husband’s council, though I can’t let it wait too long before letting people know something. It would be rude to everyone to let it be a shock to them. This way it’s delightfully mysterious and a bit scandalous, but not crass.

I really shouldn’t spend so much trouble congratulating myself. The only other interesting thing to happen today is that Pang, when asked what he planned to do when he grew up, said he would join the army and be a great warrior like his papa.

If I have to fight the same battle a thousand times, my Pang will grow up to be safe. He won’t be like his father, not if I have any say in the matter. I am resolved. It is simply unthinkable, and I shall tell his father so at the soonest possible instant.

I really couldn’t be more proud of Sev. He’s wonderful, and he’s made our family rich. I just don’t want that for Pang. The child doesn’t have much attention span. Anything new catches his interest and holds it for an hour’s time. He’d

He simply isn’t soldier material.

I suppose I worry too much. Pang will lose interest in his father’s career. I’m sure he’s had other aspirations. He’s very young yet. I shouldn’t worry.

He’d?

Paragraph 4 contains the word “He’d”. Is it purposefully cut off? Or does it begin a sentence that’s just missing?

Re: He’d?

Purposefully cut off. She got upset and decided to write something else, you see.
