  1. Chapter 57A: Fear and Protection

    2

    January 9, 2017 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Enrie cleared her throat to give herself a moment to think.  Elelakorra had changed directions, tone of voice, and expression in a heartbeat.  Now she was gentle-older-cousin again. “I believe, cousin, ah, Elora, you were just finishing up reading the treaty – the copy of the treaty, of course.”  Enrie …

    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 …

    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, …

    “You three?”  Stable-master Korten smiled at them as they slipped in through the far entrance to the stable.  “And you brought friends.  I’m not going to need to clear out another stall, am I?” “Aren’t things getting a little crowded already?”  Enrie flashed him a bright smile, hoping he knew …

    Ulunumani had fled, flinging imprecations.  Enrie wanted to feel bad about that — and in some sense, she supposed she did. Ledryie was right; she was far too casual about making enemies.  At least Taikie’d made her first enemy when he tried to kill her; Enrie seemed to make them when she …

    “All right” Riensin leaned forward.  “So you have a puzzle piece.  We need to check in Instructor… P’s office.  You found things that were of the right era there, right?” “Yes, but someone else has already ransacked his office.”  Enrie wrinkled her nose. “Do you think he noticed?” “…that’s a …

    Instructor Kaasmasik was missing from class again. Still, Enrie turned in her paper, looking Instructor Rezhtareza in the eye as she explained, “I was told to do this paper, ma’am.” “Indeed? Somehow I’m not surprised. Well, perhaps it will count as extra credit.” The instructor wasn’t smirking — wasn’t smiling at …

    Ulunumani didn’t approach them during breakfast; less surprisingly, neither did any annoyed Cevati Bitrani.  In an additional note so unsurprising as to be on par with the sun coming up in the morning, neither did Gianci. Kekla and Tesdes showed up late, just as the rest of them were finishing …

    June 22, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Previous to Chapter 34A… Kekdela and Tesdes were waiting just inside the entrance to the library when Enrie, Saydrie, and Taikie got there. Kekla looked as if she was about ready to bounce out of her uniform, while Tesdes looked — well, the same as Tesdes normally looked, which was …

    Lady Ilonilarrona narrowed her eyes.  Enrie smiled, although she was beginning to feel as if her lips were made of stone.  Saydrie and Taikie moved forward a step on either side of her. “You really don’t know, do you?  You’re stupider than I thought, and that little heel was lying …

    Kekdela took in Taikie’s explanation while Enrie tried not to look as embarrassed as she felt.  They had been, a little.  She just hadn’t… “Teasing you about Riensin, hrrm?  I told you you were laying it on way too thick.”  She delivered the last to Riensin, with a roll of …

    Enrie frowned at Lovdyo.  “Who…” “Please don’t,” he whispered.  “It’ll just make it worse.  Just… I’m sorry.  I didn’t mean to get you in trouble.” He cut a pathetic figure, looking up at her through long black lashes.  His braids were a mess, and his uniform was buttoned crookedly. Enrie …

    “So… what do we do?”  Taikie hissed her question under the noise of the dining hall; it seemed like, as momentous as that had felt to Enrie, nobody else had noticed. “We give her a day and a night to decide.  And… when she decides that she doesn’t want to …

    Olisama looked up at Piadro.  Piadro looked down at Olisama.  It was the ridiculous royal that broke first, surprising Enrie – and probably everyone else in this discussion group.  “I suppose my parents would be irked if I caused trouble with the enclaves in my first year of school.” Piadro chuckled, …

    Piadro barely spared Falivia a glance.  He took another step towards Olisama, who had raised her chin and was very clearly about to start in on another rant of one sort or another. Enrie looked at the Bitrani woman.  They could let this go, or… “Clearly,” Falivia continued, “every group, …

  17. Chapter 22C: And a Push Back Again

    February 19, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Olisama was staring at Enrie with obvious rage and, more than rage, confusion.  “Do you honestly not care what you’ve done?” “I care.” Enrie lifted her chin and glared at her cousin.  “I plan on graduating Edally Academy on merit.  I know what happens to cheaters in the royalty, and …

    They had made it only a few more feet out of the classroom before Riensin, Tesdes, and Kekdela caught out with them.  “What do you think happened?  Do you think it’s something about the,” Riensin dropped his voice to a whisper, “cheating thing?” “What do they do to Instructors who …

    January 25, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Kekdela was perched in front of Enrie. Of all the people who had been pushing themselves into Enrie’s face and space in the last day, she was certainly being the most polite. “What do you worry about?” “And what was – what was her name? Olisama – talking about?” Taikie …

    Taikie and Saydrie held their tongues until they were all away from Enrie’s relatives, until they’d sat down at their table.  Then, however, as if it had been pressing against her like steam building up behind a valve, Taikie leaned forward and hissed at Enrie. “What did she mean, you …
