Meanwhile at Leppiäinnen's
That night, like the seven nights before, Tamlin sat sulking in his room in the Leppiännen complex, until he went to bed, where he tossed and turned and sulked some more. However, unlike the seven nights before, he was coming to some sort of a decision.

"Need to fix things up with Ragna," he said to himself, "if only for our child. But then... Ethelfried... why did I ever leave her? All those years ago?"

As the night wore on, worry, guilt, blame and self-loathing fought for space in his head.

"Why did Ragna feed me drunk until-"

"Why did I let her?

"Why am I such a waste of space - a drunk and a rotter?"

...And so on, until he fell asleep.

In the morning, Tamlin finally made up his mind, and took his leave.
