    “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, …

    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 …

    “…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 …

    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 …

    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, …

  11. 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 …

    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 …

    “Hey guys, where’d you go? After… Philosophy?”  Riensin plopped down between Enrie and Taikie at the dinner table.  “I got, uh, distracted talking to Instructor Dainanan.” “Oh, is that where you went?” Kekdela set herself down across from Riensin – right up against Saydrie – and Tesdes sat down on …

    “What are you playing at, anyway?” Kekdela had three books open in front of her but she was drawing doodles of goat horns in her notebook. “You know this really could get you expelled. It could get everyone expelled. Me and Tesdes included.” Tesdes looked up at the mention of his …

    Silence reigned at their table for a minute. Enrie did her best to catalogue everyone’s reactions, but she was having a hard time dealing with her own. It seemed like a lovely idea, but it seemed like a lovely idea that was doomed to fail. That was not how Enrie …

    Enrie rolled her eyes at Riensin. “I’m feeling fine. I didn’t sleep all that well last night; I was up working on this paper Pelnyen gave us.” “I thought it was only a couple pages.” He wrinkled his nose. “That shouldn’t take hours, should it? The last time he did …

    Taikie and Saydrie looked far more awake than Enrie felt. They were already chatting when Enrie got to breakfast, leaning over something on the table and ignoring their food. Enrie, watching them from across the table, felt a stab of isolation. She shouldn’t have stayed up so late. She shouldn’t …
