It feels like only yesterday that you walked up to this counter, fresh-faced and eager to learn goldsmithing. But here you are now, among the lauded ranks of those who not only practice, but teach our craft. Seeing you come so far, I cannot help but feel a sense of pride.
Yet, by the same token, I cannot help but feel a little worried too. As I am sure you will appreciate, goldsmiths have a high profile in our city, and you are liable to attract more attention, for better or worse, like the guildmaster does. Do take care, now.
