The Flowering of the Lily

I was in Maerad's room when suddenly a bard came and said that they needed my help in the kitchens. With a sigh, and with a regret that I will leave Maerad alone, I left the room. But luckily, I stumbled on Cadvan, I told him to take care of Maerad in her room while I'm gone.
But something happened while I'm in the kitchens. Cadvan unexpectedly came flying into the kitchen pale-faced as if a dozen wights were chasing him! I thought there was a fire! but to my relief, there was none. He said that Maerad was bleeding (he said that it was a menarche..) I quickly ran to her room with a bottle of elixir and some clean cloths. I told her to take a dose of the elixir, she gratefully drank it. After that, I helped to to dress and explained to her why women bleed.
She said that she thought she was cursed , but I told to her that it was called the flowering, a stage when if a woman wants to have children, she can have it now. After the talk, I lead her to the kitchens--to the courtyard, were I let her ate her snacks. After that, we talked many interesting subjects, like Mirlad; the one who taught her how to play music, about the bards and so much more.
Maerad is a very delicate child, she grew in a violent environment and without a parent. I am now beginning(or continuing) to love her like my child, and I will do my very best to make her feel home.
Well, despite the seriousness of the topic, this day is the most funniest day in my Life! I cannot stop laughing at my self when I remembered how pale Cadvan was, and how panic took him! I think I'm going to tell that to Malgorn.
