    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 …

    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 …

    “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 …

    “You can’t do this,” Ulunumani repeated.  “Do you know who I am?  Do you know who he is?  Do you know who our parents  are?” Saydrie answered for Enrie.  “Who you are  — who your parents are — is exactly the point.” “Oh?”  Ulunumani took another step forward.  Enrie didn’t …

    Taikie frowned for a moment.  Enrie thought she was taking in her rather pessimistic assessment.  Then she burst out laughing, a wry chuckle that quickly turned into a proper chortle.  “Then we paddle on stone here, and next week I’ll come up with a mechanism for that, too.  I can’t …

    Enrie smiled and nodded and note-took her way through class, not letting herself look at her teammates for too long. In the glances she took, she could see that Taikie was pale and worried-looking; Saydrie looked bitter, a surprising and unpleasant look on his face. Instructor Kaasmasik, she couldn’t help …

    They were quiet as they walked out of the library, two books signed out properly and safely nestled in Saydrie’s book bag and the third tucked into Enrie’s bag while they were sure nobody was looking. They hadn’t discussed it, any more than they had had room for discussion when …

    The stairs up had never seemed so long and so exposed.  Enrie walked up them as quickly as she dared without drawing attention.  They didn’t want those people to know what they’d overheard — or that they knew what it meant.  They didn’t want to lead them straight to the …
