I went out and called to him "Eli, what are you doing here?"
"I've come to see if the rumors are true." Eli asked as he watched me walk towards him.
"What rumors?" I asked as I approached him.
"Well been a few who say that you stepped down because you were pregnant with Captain Typho baby. Others say that your stepped down because you got married and there are a few who are saying that you stepped down because you couldn't handle just being an aide any more." he said as he lower his eyes.
"Eli, you know the real reason why I resigned." I said as I gently placed my hand on his face.
"Yes, Dorme I do! I just can't stand to be in Theed and listen to those busy bodies and know your out here and can't do a thing to stop them." Eli stated as his face filled with anger.
"Oh Eli, you must calm down. Soon I'll go back to Theed but for now I just want to stay right here. You know this is the first time since Corde's death that I really feel at peace with her passing." I gently stated as I turned towards the lake and watched as the waves crashed into the beach that lined it.
"When you resigned did you leave word with anyone other then by that resignation letter that you left?" Eli worried asked.
"I did, and I never did hear back from him." I said as I wiped away a tear.
"Oh, who?" Eli asked as he gentle placed his hand on my arm.
"Captain Typho" I gently said as I felt his hand gentle squeeze.
"And he never returned your message?" Eli asked.
"No he did not." I said as I started wondering why Eli was asking all these questions.
"I'm sorry Dorme." Eli said as he looked at his watch "I hate to leave you here alone but I really get back before my mother starts to worry." He looked at me as asked "You will be alright once I gone?"
"Yes Eli, I'll be fine." I said with a smile on my face.
I watched Eli walk away, then I went back inside my cabin and started writing a letter to my mother.
