    “You really have had an interesting first year at school so far,” Elelakorra chuckled. “Oh, no, this is nothing.  Taikie got hit over the head with a pipe by someone —” Enrie caught herself and coughed “— misusing aether, someone who turned out to be a murderer.   For this, all …

    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 …

    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 …

    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 …

    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 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, …

    It was a long ride to Lannamer, one that couldn’t be done in a day even if you didn’t stop at all.  The first night, they were stopped three times, the road blocked by people that, as Libkazaari muttered, had no right to be doing stops, nor to be looking …

    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 …

    Enrie lifted her chin and met the Head of her Academy’s gaze without flinching.  “The original is safe, Head Wiltemika.  I didn’t dare have it anywhere it could be found while Lirnilalie and Ilonilarrona  were snooping around, talking about destroying it all.” Wiltemika’s chuckle now had a bit of an …

    “Well.”  Wiltemika sank down into a chair and held her head in her hands.  “May they be truly gone and not simply waiting for the right time to plague us again.” “Head Wiltemika,” Libkazaari protested.  “What is going on?” “With any luck, the evidence I have previously put forward against …

    “Now that that little travelling curiosity show is over,” Lirnilalie muttered, “we can get back to business.  My papers–” “As I told you already,” LIbkazaari interrupted, “your papers aren’t here.  The only papers that are here belong to the Students here and to the school.” “Then you won’t mind if …

    Enrie swallowed around a dry throat and watched the scene unfold.  Libkazaari stood up, watching Lirnilalie levelly. The woman, in turn, raised one eyebrow in clear doubt.  “I’ve never heard of a school project that led to students hiding, running away from adults and stealing things from rooms.” “Well as …

    Was this good news?  It was pleasant to hear that Libkazaari didn’t like Lirinlalie, and yet… “House Monitor,” she said carefully, “I am concerned that, if Lirnilalie is being treated as royalty, if we reveal these papers here, there will be no pleasant result and a great deal of trouble.” …

    “We have some ideas about what it could mean,” Enrie offered. “The fact is, it’s not signed, and that’s huge.  And it doesn’t show up in normal history books, but I found references to it in at least one aether-embedded book in the treaties section.”  That one, she’d brought the …

    Enrie stared at House Monitor Libkazaari’s door. She looked at her friends.  She swallowed around the bile in her throat and looked back at the door. “I can hear you out there.  Unless you’re here to discuss the merits of saddle-throwing positions, come in.” Enrie’s cheeks flushed and she ducked …

    House Monitor Libkazaari’s office was open and, thankfully, there was nobody there except the House Monitor.  Enrie knocked on the open door and waited until Libkazaari looked up. The frown that crossed Libkazaari’s face made Enrie worry.  “Enerenarie, Tairiekie, Saydrie.  I believe I should give the three of you seats …

    House Monitor Libkazaari had left the three of them alone in her office.  For once, Enrie had no interest in snooping and it seemed that Taikie didn’t, either. “Sometimes,” Saydrie said slowly, “I worry that the things I grew up hearing about the Calenyena are true.” “Sometimes,” Enrie answered, very …

    February 4, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Stew, apologies, and chores were best finished before they got cold.   Enrie’s parents hadn’t said that one, but when she’d been little, she’d lived with her maternal grandmother during the winters and that had been Grandma Ezrie’s favorite saying. She squeezed Taikie and Saydrie’s hands.  “All right.  The stew is …

    Enrie looked between her friends and the gathering of Bitrani boys.  Taikie looked miserable and worried; Saydrie looked angry.  The Bitrani looked defensive and uncomfortable. “There’s no fight,” Darnio answered slowly.  “We were talking to Saydrie and things got heated.” “I don’t suppose you want to tell me why?” “He’s …
