The revels were great fun--exactly what I needed to get my mind off of the Sending from Athena. I must say, I spent a little too much time under that smoke blanket, and drank a little to much of that unmixed Amazon wine. Even Mother was as wild as a Bacchante.

Someone invited a few men--Aeneas was there. I confess, I made quite a fool of myself. It was the wine, I swear!

Yes, Aeneas. My brother-in-law. My PREGNANT sister's husband. Now that I've clarified that...

I found myself flirting with him: kissing him all over his face (but not on the lips, alas!) I tried as hard as I could to get him drunk so that he wouldn't remember my own inebriated antics; I never would have made such a fool of myself had I not drunken too much wine. He intentionally spilled wine all over my WHITE dress...silly Aeneas. I flirtatiously told him that he would have to wipe it up. He didn't.

I also discovered that Andromache is extremely ticklish...I think I should tell Hector that....

After the party, Aeneas walked me back to my room in the palace. I only expected him to take me to the door, but he picked me up and laid me down on my bed, tickling me. I started to kiss him again, but before I could do anything that I'd regret, he pulled away, and told me that I was cute. Cute!?. I then confessed that I'm very much enamored with him...he seemed to be more disappointed than anything else. About what, I don't know--he just had that kind of reaction. He then kissed me on the forehead and bade me goodnight.

Hmmm...I'm feeling a bit more sober now. I think I'm going to run over to speak with Hector...I need to have a few words with him before the wedding....
