    Gianci, Enrie found, was a bit hesitant about the actual idea of things.  His hand hovered hear the small of her back and the other hand near her shoulder, as if he would like to touch her but was remembering, perhaps, the way she had reacted when someone else had …

    Enrie stood took a step backwards up the stairs and smiled at Gianci.  “Well, if we’re going to be in close quarters with each other — as it seems we are — maybe we could go for something a little more scenic?” He took a step up after her.  “What …

    Gianci cleared his throat and took a step backwards.  Enrie stood up and took a step downwards, closer to him. “So…” he offered uncertainly.  “So you would have… gone down to the, that is, gone to the races with me, if you hadn’t been… otherwise occupied, um, planning to be …

    Enrie looked at Gianci.  He looked at her.  There were more important things to be worried about right now, she knew.  But he was between her and the exit, and Taikie was between them and leaving.    She looked over his shoulder, although there was nothing there.  “I’ve been interested …

    “Is this your idea of a joke?” Gianci demanded.  His breath was warm, brushing across the top of Enrie’s head. “It might be Taikie’s idea of a prank,” Enrie admitted, “but I doubt it.  There are far too few pipes involved.”  In the dark, it wasn’t easy to find the …

    Finding Riensin was harder than she’d hoped it would be.  He wasn’t in the dining hall, he wasn’t readily visible in the library, and he wasn’t in his dorm’s common room or in his room, although his roommates gave Enrie and Taikie quite the look — before they noticed Saydrie standing …

    Enrie looked helplessly between Taikie and Kekdela’s retreating back.  “Well.”  She glanced at Saydrie, who looked a little confused and a little abashed.  “Taikie, you know, Riensin…” “I have absolutely no interest in anything involved with Riensin,” Taikie answered shortly.  “None.  He could fold up and fly away like incomplete …

    “Lady Enerenarie.  Can I bother you for a moment?” Enrie was just a few feet from the Library, but she stopped at Gianci’s voice coming up behind her. “You don’t have to call me Lady, you know.” She turned around slowly.  What could he want?  From the sounds of things, …

    Enrie felt stiff and angry as they left Biological Systems, but the more steps she took away from the room, the less certain she was.  It could have been a misunderstanding.  There was no way an instructor in the most prestigious academy in all of Calenta would encourage his students …

    Gianci stood up, smoothing his tunic and trousers and bowed to all three of them.  “I’ll leave you to your studies.  Saydrie.  Think about it, all right?” “I will,” Saydrie admitted.  “I don’t want to be expelled… I don’t want to be in even more trouble.”  He swallowed.  “Thank you, Gianci.” …

    “Has it gotten that bad?” Enrie kept her voice as quiet as Gianci was keeping his.  “I mean, I knew that Darnio was unhappy here.  But I didn’t imagine that it had gotten… seditious or anything.”  She noticed the way that Gianci glanced at Saydrie, and found herself irritated.  “Unlike …

    Enrie watched Lovdyo flee the Tower, one boot still half-untied, a look of sick panic on his face. That, she thought, had not gone as well as expected. As a matter of fact, it had gone far worse than she’d thoughtit might. “I wonder what it is that got into him?” …
