Day 35, 8th Year of Braska's Calm

What an outrage!

Also a sobering lesson. I was watching for Fiends. It never occurred to me that Spirans might pose a threat to us as well.

We passed several Crusaders patrols today on the Highroad. I was just remarking to Lady Ginnem that it was going to be difficult for me to practice if they kept chasing all the Fiends away. We were passing by some old ruins. Suddenly, I was hit from behind. There were four, maybe five men, including at least one of those who had been asking Lady Ginnem about Guardians yesterday! Ginnem was pounced by two of them, and if they had wanted to kill her then and there, I could not have saved her. I lashed out in panic. Something inside me snapped. I have never seen lightning like that before: it welled up like Sin's wave crashing over the shore, completely beyond my control, and started striking everything around me. I'm afraid I may have hit the Lady as well... I don't remember now. Apparently one of the ruffians struck me, and I blacked out. A nearby patrol heard the commotion and came to our aid.

So much for our first full day on the road. Lady Ginnem rented lodgings at an Al Bhed travel agency for the night, and the proprietor gave her some sort of healing ointment for my head. I don't feel at all easy about staying here, but she assures me it's safe. The Crusaders seem to have some sort of understanding with these people.

This is absolutely unacceptable. A Guardian must always be on guard, and I might have failed Lady Ginnem today had our attackers been Fiends instead of robbers.

I killed two of them, I think.

I feel strange. It's probably this horrid Al Bhed ointment.
