Comments: Introduced the constable, Linden Watchhouse, and his wife Marigold — I don’t think those were their names before I left for Hawaii, but they are now. Finished a short first chapter, started the second (which is why there’s a half-page in the numbers above).
Provided a little more world-building with Hyacinth’s visit to the Watch House, which looks like a deserted, decaying ruin from the north (the side toward the highway), but warm and welcoming inside. Also finished a paragraph about the nature of the Folk relative to three other intelligent species (elves, human, delvers), did some very minor revisions to earlier bits.
Still haven’t introduced the retired soldier who is the only military veteran in the Vale, or his crazy uncle who was an adventurer long, long ago, or the victim’s best friend, but I’ve decided the crazy uncle is the best friend of Hyacinth’s grandfather.
