Flesh is weak

I have spent the better part of the last few days sequestered away in my lab. The fighting slave I purchased is showing signs of weakness. I have tried several different combinations of medications of him, and I think, it is beginning to be more than his body can handle.
Needless to say I have to give him time to recover. On to other matters.
The slave girl, the one with the unusual eyes has yet to bring me the vial. I will seek her out myself. I am not exactly known to be the most patient woman after all. Ar is a large city and the chances of finding her are slim at best. But I am as stubborn as I am impatient, so I may just locate her. I am anxious to see if she got the blood sample and overly curious to find out what is in it.
And on a different note, I met with Thadius again last evening. He brought me a bundle of flowers of all things, very charming even if it is an overdone gesture. I invited him in and spoke with him as I placed the flowers in a vase of cool water. He kept adjusting the scabbard over his shoulder, he was either nervous or planning to kill me, I am still not sure which it was. He stayed for a meal, simple fare, bread, cheese and meat. I am not much of a cook as I do not have the time for it. He informed me that Ranus is on the move again and headed back toward Ar. I am anxious to see what he will do when he finds me here. We did not end our relationship of the best of terms. It is odd how some men do not take well to being poisoned. It was innocent really, an accident. Of course, he does not believe me and called me a wretched, horrible woman. I merely found his inability to keep his temper in check amusing. I am sure he thought I would have scattered like so many leaves in the wind. I am not that easily frightened and I am not about to run. I am on my way out to search for the slave girl, I know I gave her the location of the lab, but perhaps she misplaced it. Such a thing coming from a simple slave girl would not surprise me.
