  1. Chapter 56b: How Does This End?

    2

    January 4, 2017 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Lirnilalie was staring at her intently, and, more disturbingly, so was Elelakorra. Enrie felt like she was missing something, some capitulation of Lirnilalie’s she hadn’t quite followed.  But she understood this part, at least.  She raised her chin and looked Lirnilalie in the eye and smiled. “I appreciate the offer, …

    Lirnilalie shifted her weight, leaning forward over the desk.  “You don’t honestly think those guards worry me, do you, cousin?  They’re not going to do anything to me.” “I believe your self-confidence is getting in the way of your memory, cousin. The guards have taken you away before, and they …

  3. Holiday Story: Tienaabaa’s Festival

    December 30, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Happy Tienaabaa’s festival to all!  May it find you motivated to creativity and to thought.  If you are wondering, Bitrani and Calenyena spell Tienaabaa’s name differently (Tienebrah); the Bitrani pronounce that initial T-i-e-n as tee-en while the Calenyena say “Tie”. ❄️ It was nearly time for the festival, and the snow had already …

    Elelakorra watched Lirnilalie with a steady and unflinching gaze, despite the fact that the latter looked as if she was on fire.  “I heard a traitor and an embarrassment speak.  It would hardly be the first time, Lyirnilalie.”  Elelakorra’s eyes drifted down to the sparking, burning mess of Lirnilalie’s torso …

    “Reading the situation?”  Lirnilalie raised her eyebrows incredulously.  “You think that’s what you’re doing here?” The door behind them opened.  Tevordor stood there with four armed guards.  Elelakorra waved them in and gestured them to stay where they were. She nodded almost imperceptibly to Enrie.  A cue to continue?  If …

    Silence reigned in the room for about a heartbeat, and then Lirnilalie laughed.  “Ah, but nobody wants the job of sorting through the pile of food, pulling out the stinking pieces and saving the rest for porridge, do they?  And it’s worse when the parsnips have families and friends, when they’re …

    Lirnilalie did not seem the least bit upset by Elelakorra’s questions. “Well, because I’ve been tracking this one’s  ridiculous exploits since I first came to Edally Academy.  One of my associates had to deal with a problem with one of her children, and while we were in the area, we …

    “I’ve got the ear of the Emperor, you’re right here,” Lirnilalie pointed out.  “So listen.  To me, an Imperial Princess–“ Somewhere behind her, Riensin cleared his throat. Elelakorra chuckled.  “Lyirnilalie, I think the entire point is that you have repudiated your title and it has repudiated you.  By that standard, …

    Enrie held her breath.  There was nothing else she could do; protesting that she wasn’t a liar wasn’t going to do anything but make her look more guilty.  Looking at Libkazaari wasn’t going to do anything but say she didn’t know what was going on — which she didn’t, of …

    “Honestly, some people…”  Elelakorra pulled a dart gun from somewhere in her desk and hopped up onto said desk, nimbly missing the copies of the treaty.  She took aim, sighted… and then sighed.  “Let her in, Tevordor, and then go get the guard.  All of them.  Twice.” “Ma’am?” Tevordor didn’t …

    Enrie did not know her cousin all that well, but she thought the woman sounded faintly amused. Saydrie’s cheeks went red and blotchy and he bowed again, jerky this time.  “No, Honored One.  If anything,” he cleared his throat and managed a weak smile, “simply pointing out a specifically Bitrani …

    Enrie winced.  Her friends were not actually helping her case, as much as they might think they were. “It was…” She cleared her throat.  “They did destroy or remove several books, but they were stopped in their efforts by two things: some of the information had embedded aether.  It made …

    Saydrie rescued her. “…we forget that our Emperors’ ancestors once had to undergo seven tests to be considered worthy to even be in the succession, and that our Governors and Emperor all were once kalōkāt; war-leaders, leaders who had been proven both in battle and in peace.  We forget that …

    “I hear I have a cousin out here.”   The voice was smooth, the accent Lannamer, with its long vowels.  Enrie looked up, then bowed as elegantly as she could manage.  “Voice of the Emperor Elalekorra, cousin.”  Her cousin had apparently changed not one bit except as fashion shifted since the …

    Whatever pursuit there had been had gotten stuck in the dusk and muck or captured by the constabulary. The rest of the group took turns changing into their nicest clothes as Libkazarri and then Korten maneuvered the wagon through the narrow Lannamer streets and around the curves required to get …

    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 …

    The cart wasn’t chasing them anymore.  A peek around the edge of the wagon showed it tangled and sideways on the side of the road, their goats all happily eating feed or fighting with the harness, trying to get to the food.  Three of the people from the wagon were …

    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 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 …
