    The man standing to greet them – or challenge them; she wasn’t sure yet – was armed, carrying at least a sword, a long-knife, and a spear. Enrie took in his outfit – the tailored vest, the bright magenta, purple, and leaf-green layers, the comfortable stance and the way his …

    Whatever pursuit there had been had gotten stuck in the dusk and muck or captured by the constabulary.

    Enrie turned to look at Gianci.  Everyone else, she noticed, was doing the same.   He cleared his throat again.  He was looking over their heads, not at them. “Sometimes they tell people they can’t go back to the enclaves.  Banish them.  Some people leave on their own, sure, but …

    Sorry so late, guys!  Not sure what happened to brain Enrie was skidding toward the open trap-door, flailing for purchase. A flash of movement caught her eye and a moment later, three hands caught her – wrist, shoulder, and ankle. Enrie was yanked to a stop a hands-width from the …

    She needed to see what they were facing.  She held on to the wagon very tightly, pressed her body against the frame and spread her feet to give herself a wider, more stable stance.  She leaned out around the body of the wagon carefully, mindful that these people, since they …

    The chief constable frowned deeply for a moment.  Enrie counted backwards from seven to zero in her mind, twice, and then did it again as the chief opened his mouth. “You’re here for a school project,” he repeated.  He was putting quite a bit of emphasis on those last two words. …

    The chief constable appeared a little too unimpressed with Enrie.  She let her smile get a little bigger and, at the same time, a little more sharp, a little more impatient.  The chief, in turn, responded by turning to look at the oncoming cart. Enrie thought about her mother, being …

    The wagon rattled along the bridge.  Kekdela had her head on her knees, one hand in Riensin’s and the other in Tesdes’.  Enrie clutched the bag holding her copies of the treaty carefully to herself.  What would her mother do in this situation? Her father? First, her mother would say, …
