~~pure finished her chores early in the evening...the sun still high enough to warm the waters of the creek...all of the thralls where off finishing their chores and the Hold Jarl was busy with the business of the Isle...pure had hung the last of the laundry on the line moments before...she looked down as realized how filthy the days work had made her....slipping to the waters edge and dives in...the crisp cold water that flowed from the mountain springs mixed with the warmer water of the inlet but still took her breath away
~~she rose to the surface and swam out away from the shore a bit seeking warmer water...she hovered there treading water as she looked at the mountains beyond marveling at their beauty...flipping over onto her back she stared up at the sky with its hues of oranges and purple as the sun was sinking towards the horizon
~~her thoughts drifting towards her life...she was free...free from the need to conceal her body...something that she was keenly aware of at the moment as the water lapped over her naked form...she understood by the look in the Hold Jarl’s eyes when he looked at her that he was smitten with her and had taken her to protect her from others who would not value her as he did
~~she could not nor would not complain...she was happy...she rolled over and dove down into the water...scrubbing the dirt and grime from her hair and body as she did so...the cold water refreshing her for the evening chores..she climbs out of the water and drip dries as the sun disappears from the sky and the 3 moons take it's place...how lovely the sky looked
~~she runs her fingers thru her hair to take the tangles out..the cool breeze dries her hair rather fast...she makes her way to the Hold and enters through the kitchen door and proceeds to getting the Hold Jarl's dinner for the evening...choosing a tray with a platter napkin and utensils she places them on the tray...
~~over at the cooking fires she spoons a heap of the dressing that she stuffed the Turmit with then cuts a few slices of the Turmit and lays them on over the dressing pouring a little of the brown gravy over to keep it moist..she adds a dollop of mashed suls adding gravy to them as well..then a big spoon of the green beans that has been cooked with tarsk bits..she smiles seeing how the plate looks
~~ setting the tray down on the counter she heads to the cold room to fetch a little bowl of the berry sauce to go along with the meal then grasps two dinner rolls and puts them on a place...she pours a cup of bosk milk setting it to the tray along with a slice of the sweet sul pie with a dollop of whipped cream..knowing this is a hearty meal fit for a Hold Jarl
~~taking up the tray and delivering it to the Hold Jarl's side table setting the tray atop...looking around making sure everything is in place before the Free enter for Dinner...she adds another log to the fire..to make sure the Free are warm...then pure sits on the window sill and writes in her journal thinking of the Hold Jarl
