  1. Chapter 56c: Copies

    8

    January 6, 2017 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    Lirnilalie stared at Enrie blankly for a minute.  “You’re telling me that Ilonilarrona had me chasing after a copy?   A modern copy, at that?  All of this talk about the Treaty and what it could do, and it’s nothing but a copy?  Nobody would believe anything based on this, nobody …

  2. Chapter 56b: How Does This End?

    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 …

    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 …

  6. Chapter 55a: “When Words Don’t Work”

    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 …

    December 12, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    “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 …

    “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.” …

    September 16, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    The day of classes seemed to stretch on interminably.  Once they reached the end, Enrie could see what Riensin had found. She could see what else they had to do.  She could figure out who they were supposed to take this to. But first she had to get through Biology …
