  1. Chapter 40a: Findings

    2

    August 23, 2016 by Lyn Thorne-Alder

    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 …

    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 …

    Due to a *cough* scheduling error, you get two chapters today.  Please make sure you’ve read Chapter 36B first “So,” Saydrie cleared his throat.  “Sorry about that, Stable-Master Korten.  I’m not sure…” “Your friend there, that’s not an entirely unreasonable reaction.  Lirnilalie is not the sort of person you want to …

    “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 …

    After Chapter 34A “The problem is, I don’t really have a plan for this part,” Enrie admitted.  They were sitting over an early breakfast — it appeared her teammates couldn’t sleep any more than she could. “I have sort of… bits and pieces of a plan.  Go look here, go look …

    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 …

    “She has a plan?”’  Taikie very nearly waited until they were out of earshot of the house Monitor’s office.  “Do you think…  Do you think it will be a good plan?  I mean, last time, we ended up with Instructor Kaasmasik back teaching classes, and Instructor Pelnyen is still teaching…” …

    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 …

    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 …

    “Don’t you ‘cousin’ me, you ridiculous girl.  You have no more right to call me cousin than a weasel does to a goat.” Enrie kept a pleasant smile on her face.  “Lady Ilonilarrona, yes?  How might we help you?” “Associate Governor.  And you are Nerenarie, yes?  The daughter of… oh, …

    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 …

    Enrie coughed and looked away.  Saydrie cleared his throat.  “Ah.  Um.  That is… Well.  Taikie, we were trying to be overheard, so nobody questioned why we were in the hall, or thought Enrie had been…” “No, I know that.”  Taikie huffed.  “I know I’m a little naive but I followed …

    Enrie barely managed not to stiffen or pull away as Saydrie pulled her into a hug and suggested intimate things at her while he held her cuddled against him.  He smelled interesting, she noticed, like a soap she only remembered encountering deep in the south. She cleared her throat.  “The …

    Bleed for it. Enrie didn’t know if she liked that.  She didn’t want anyone to get hurt.  She didn’t… She didn’t want things to stay the same.  She kept stewing over things as they made it through their classes.  Riensin and Kekdela were’t talking to them; Tesdes probably wasn’t, either, …

    “There will be other races,” Saydrie offered cautiously.  “And other times for you to go interesting places… with interesting people.” “Hey!”  Taikie’s wisdom was short-lived.  “We’re interesting people.” “We are.  But, rumors about the nature of ‘teams’ aside, I do not think we’re the interesting people that Enerenrie wants to …
