Someday Sam will remember to stop working when the sun comes up, but last night wasn't one of those nights.

He opened the door from his workroom and found Milliways and just went up to that room, where he remembered to take off his boots and set the wards before falling asleep.

His dreams were nice, being in the room made him think of Kait and he kept reaching out for her in his sleep.

They leave for the Dorrance estate tomorrow morning.

Nick decides not to wait for a chance to find a proper entrance point from there, and focuses on searching out a route to Milliways as soon as Uncle Edward's departed for a meeting.

Now he's knocking at Sam's door. Loudly.

"Sameth. Are you in there? Open up, there's a good man."

"Here or back in Ancelstierre?" he asks, strolling in.

"Did I wake you? You're looking all rumpled."

Nick grins.

"Good to see you're keeping your old habits."

"Didn't think to," he admits, cheerfully. "But that's easily remedied. Splash some water on your face, and I'll be back almost before you know I'm gone."

He's as good as his word, rapping his knuckles against the door once in warning before he breezes back in with a breakfast tray.

"Brought a proper full one," he informs Sam, "and tea for both of us."

"Serves you right for staying up all night," Nick points out, cheerfully.

Of course, it's not like he hasn't done the same, all too often, and he's aware that Sam knows that perfectly well.

"Suppose that's fair," he allows.

Nick claims his cup of tea and a perch on a nearby chair.

"For one thing, came by to let you know Uncle Edward and I are heading up to Dorrance's tomorrow. Don't know how easily I'll be able to get here from there, but I'll be looking. From there, it shouldn't be a far cry to the Wall -- sooner rather than later."

"Dorrance Hall," Nick informs him, dryly. "Smallish sort of town nearby, but it's got a rail station and it's a few hundred miles closer to the Wall than Corvere, so I'll take it."

He rolls his eyes.

"I'm sure it will, but there's no help for it."

Even if Uncle Edward is being cagey about it all for some reason.

He might as well have heard Sam's thought. Nick grins.

"Always do."

"Sayre or not, I've no intention of taking up my family's career plans for me," Nick informs him. "Even if they have sent me off to Uncle to get 'properly situated.'"

And to be near various doctors for follow-ups, he knows, but there's no point in dwelling on that.

"I'll handle it, Sam."

He doesn't intend the faint stubbornness that edges his words, but it's there all the same.

"I've said I would, and I will. Word of a Sayre, you know."

"I know."

Nick's smile flashes once more.

"Wouldn't be you if you didn't, right?"
