Who was the note going to? The letter was being addressed to Failiani Arrowind, Coriani’s young missing cousin. Qixilixa quickly started to write the letter in common (due to the fact Faili had a hard time reading Orcish) that read,
I’ve enclosed several old armor pieces in the crate. If you can disenchant any magical properties that may be on them and send me the dust; I’ll send you part of the earnings that sell.
My hearing had more damaged done to it since we last spoke due to an accident involving Bloodthistle and explosives while I was sleeping. I’ve gone to the Da Doctas clinic in Thunder Bluff and had my right ear checked out. A tauren healer put a tiny seed in my right ear that should repair the damage of the explosion in time. If that doesn’t work, a blood elf woman mentioned that are some enchanters skilled enough to replace ears if my right ear goes deaf completely. I don’t believe that is something you can do, right?
I’m still trying to figure out the identity of that high elf mage that is after you. A few mercenary friends of mine are keeping an eye for any mage that contacts them whose name starts with a ‘N’. It’s too bad your late father didn’t mention more information about that rival of his, even a pirate ship that make it easier to find them. If there is anything you can remember your late father talking about his rival just let me know. I’ll make sure this high elf mage regrets every action they have taken against you, Faili once I find them.
Watch out for Vrykul females if you are in Northrend. Other goblins told have me that they are vicious; especially the ones that live in Storm Peaks. I’d keep an eye on the male ones, too the more I think about it.
Keep safe, kid wherever you are hiding. I’d hate to see you get hurt; especially with the sleeping condition you have.
Post Note; Would you mind writing me a note, even if it’s in Thalassian when you receive this?
Once the letter was finished, Qixilixa folded the parchment up and got on her feet. She walked up to the big crate as Driqa put the last armor piece she had, an old looking red cape with light green trim. “Got room for this on the top?” If there was one thing she didn’t want was for the letter to be out in the open in case someone got curious and decided to read it. That was a situation the goblin wanted to avoid if possible.
“Sure do. We sure don’t want someone finding out about this shipment and informing Coriani Arrowind or that high elf rival that’s after the girl; Gotta protect your asset after all.”
Qixilixa nodded as she barely managed to put the letter on top of the armor in the big crate. She had her reasons she hadn’t informed Coriani by mail that she had seen her missing cousin. She had sent the huntress mail before but that strictly related to her Bloodthistle business, something Coriani hadn’t bought from the goblin. While one could assume that was a reason for not telling the Sin’dorei anything, that wasn’t the case as Qixilixa had hopes she would buy Bloodthistle from her.
No, she had other reasons for not telling. For one, Failiani was willing to disenchant armor for cheap, something the goblin liked and even gave the Sin’dorei a bit more than asked. Another was her skills as a rogue; even though she still had a long ways to go before being an expert, Qixilixa had noticed Failiani’s potential to be deadly. She could have a potential assassin to hire once Faili was an adult and if her narcolepsy type sleeping curse went away.
Besides, the likelihood of someone else hiring a narcoleptic rogue was slim. Who would want a rogue that could suddenly fall asleep at given time? How did Qixilixa find out about the blood elf’s curse? Failiani had fallen asleep rather suddenly while she was explaining her situation. She didn’t think of Failiani of just an asset, she also thought of the young Sin’dorei as a friend and was worried about the threat against the young one.
She didn’t think Silvermoon was the safest place for Faili due to high elf mage could disguise as a Sin’dorei and attack the kid and teleport away before anyone noticed. Failiani’s mentor was venerable and wouldn’t be able to defend her. The goblin figured the rogue was safer out in some remote place since the mage apparently didn’t know how to scry and hadn’t studied about it, something that puzzled her since most mages she met liked to study.
However, Qixilixa hadn’t been aware of the fact Failiani had partially lied to her about the identity of the person after her a few months earlier. The goblin had met Nisensi before but wasn’t aware that high elf alchemist was also a mage. If the bruiser had known Nisensi was the one after Faili and wanted her as an experiment, she would have different tactics and would have suggested Failiani to hide in Bilgewater Harbor or another horde town with the few disguises she provided for her.
