  1. Epilogue: At the Races

    5

    January 30, 2017 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    It seemed that being in the favor of the Emperor, at least for the moment, had a few immediate benefits. One of those was being in charge of the imperial bureaucrats as they searched the Library. Enrie had never been in charge of people before and she found it very …

    They’d been back at school for two weeks.  Enrie was entirely caught up on all her classes, and Taikie was back into reading ahead by at least a week.  Their Instructors had either forgiven them, or, in the case of those more nosy than fretful about academics, had stopped asking …

      “Hello there.  It has been a while, hasn’t it?  Almost an eon.”  Gianci had spent almost all of his time in the days since they returned placating his teammates and roommates, all of whom had been irked with him.  Enrie had only seen him in passing in the lounge …

    Elelakorra’s gaze moved to Libkazaarie and stayed there for a moment.  “My protection includes you, of course.  It has been a while, hasn’t it?” Libkazarrie cleared her throat uncomfortably. “It has. Honored Voice.” “None of that, Librie.” Elelakorra hopped up to sit on her desk and swung her legs over …

    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 …

    “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 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 …

    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 …

    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, …

    Their head of school might being blackmailed, but Enrie found herself worrying more about what to pack.  “I don’t have anything,” she complained to her roommates, who were sleepy and not inclined to help.  “I didn’t bring anything…” She was being very vague about where she was going, not because she …

    “…and then Pieped suggested they could run interference.  Which is probably why there’s this very polite wall of Estyaa House colors by the doorway.  I don’t think Lady Ilonilarrona’s done with us.”  Enrie spared a glance for the nicely-composed line of purple, cyan-teal, & bright red by the main entrance, …

    September 7, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    The Associate Governor made her way out of the first-years’ dorm with ill grace; unsurprising, as she did most things with ill grace.  Enrie shot a nervous look at Gianci, who had been wearing a solemn expression throughout the whole ordeal. As soon as Ilonilarrona was past them, the expression …

    September 5, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie stared at Ilonilarrona.  Behind the Associate Governor, she was pretty sure most of her dorm-mates were also staring at the woman. Gianci, however, was chuckling.  “Ma’am, I’m terribly sorry.  But if you think Enerenarie here was ‘up to something’ today, well, I’m afraid you’re right.” What?  Enrie turned slowly …

    September 1, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    It took them most of the evening to copy the pages.  They divided up the copies and originals between them and went their separate ways, back to their dorm towers. That left Enrie walking up the stairs to their dorm side by side with Gianci.  She glanced over at him …

    They took all of their bits and pieces to a quiet lab in the back of the Philosophy classroom building.  There, in a room lit with the new safety lamps, they laid out everything they’d found so far, pages and notes.  Saydrie pulled out some fresh paper and a pen …

    They found Gianci and Taikie in the history section, holding an old tome whose bindings had crumbled with age, hidden off behind a pole in a far corner  near the books on Empress Otyeriotanerio .  The book itself was Bitrani Writings on the Early Wars, but, between two maps of …

    Enrie didn’t wait until Gianci and Taiki were gone before she started searching the shelves.  She’d been over many of these books before, but with Gianci’s new lullaby, they had a new direction to go in. Saydrie was muttering to himself as he flipped through books.  After a minute, he …

    They should have been making their way back downstairs to help Taikie and Saydrie with their project, but Enrie found it was hard to work up the motivation to leave. One kiss led to another, and another one after that, until finally she sighed.  The sun was beginning to set through …
