    Care not what your enemies think of you, Only what they do to you ~ Saydrie slipped into class just as Instructor was about to close the door.  He got seated between Taikie and Enrie with barely a heartbeat to spare, Instructor Tiemaktamiek glaring at him the whole time. “Class. …

    Nothing Stinks as bad as Betrayal ~ Saydrie had been having nightmares since Taikie showed him the newspaper.  The discussion with Falvia – and three with other Cevati Bitrani that he hadn’t sought ought but had ended up being corned by anyway – were doing nothing to alleviate his fears …

    Are We Bitrani? ~ The paper – the Ilelteddez Whispers – thought there was a serious chance of a Bitrani uprising in the far south.  Saydrie read the paper three times during class – he was better at being sneaky than Taikie was, at least – and another two times …

    Good News and Bad News Look the same from a distance ~ The day was already strange enough.  Saydrie would have been content if he got through the rest of it with, perhaps, one Cevati Bitrani complaining about his lack of faith and one Calenyena student muttering about “dirty Byitties.” …

    A Friend and an Enemy can wear the same coat ~ The hall was clear; he was almost there.  Saydrie breathed a sigh of relief. He had made it.  It had taken some weird turns, and he was going to have to start running sprints to get in shape for …

    “If you can’t find my office, you don’t deserve answers.” Saydrie had been taking a new route to class every day. He kept catching glances of the woman who had been following him, always just on the edge of his sight, heading towards him.  And so he continued to find …

    On Sira From approx. 100 years after the separation (i.e., when the proto-Bitrani & proto-Calenyena were stranded on Reiassan by an abrupt weather-pattern change) It is both quite understandable and somewhat lamentable that our ancestors, those who first came to this land (as it is said in the oldest writings, …

    Instructor Dainanan knew that she was more than able to hide in plain sight.  She had never been the most notable of students in her own school days, and now that she was an instructor, she found that students very often simply ignored her.  Basic Textiles, she supposed, was a …

    Editor’s note: This interlude was originally intended to post between Chapters 4 and 5. Maireana stood to the back of the group of Cevati Bitrani, watching, wishing she knew what to say. It wasn’t as if Piadro and Falivia didn’t have a valid point.  The longer Saydrie spent with the …

    “You can do as you please, as long as you don’t tell me what you’re doing.” They took the opportunity, once classes were over, to duck back into their new secret hiding place.  Saydrie was entirely unsurprised to find that both Taikie and Enrie had brought things to brightened it …

    Secrets Told as Lies are Nevertheless Revealed “I don’t remember them being this bad at the beginning of the year.  Have things changed, or are they just doing it more – more obviously? – than they were?” Saydrie suppressed a sigh.  Taikie would get ahold of things like this and …

    Find Friends in Valleys, Lose Them on Cliffs The whole thing had Saydrie out of sorts. He managed to get through dinner just fine, then made some excuse, before heading off to his dorm. His dorm where his roommates weren’t exactly his friends, definitely weren’t the sort he’d go to …

    Is the enemy who will not attack truly an enemy? “You know…” Taikie turned around slowly, looking at their little room.  “This place could be set up quite nicely with food. A lot of the stuff we can grab from the meal hall stores quite wand we could set up …

    Use the Right Tool For the Job They left in a bit of a hurry, not particularly frightened of the Cevati Bitrani but wanting to get some space between them before they recovered from the surprise.  Saydrie found himself chuckling as they got far enough away. “Did you really – …

    Turn Your Back on Those of False Faith He’d already had more than enough excitement for the day, probably, all added up, for his entire time at Edally.  But the day wasn’t done with Saydrie yet. They had split up for no more than a few minutes, Enrie and Taikie …

    Demand and Supply “But why does it always work?” Tairiekie was, as always when the topic came up, plaintive. “I mean, we’re in a school.” And a little bit stuck on the subject. “Somewhere, someone has to be interested in all of the amazing things that can be done with …

    Tesdes was doing his best to be invisible, which, he was finding, was harder than it had been before. He had done a very good job of hiding in Kekla and Riensin’s rather bright shadows up until now.  But now, now it was getting trickier. He found himself in the …
