Taikie was clearly trying not to ask Saydrie questions, but it was making her bounce and twist her face up in strange positions.  Finally, halfway through class, he smiled in her direction and whispered, “go ahead.”

“Why didn’t you tell me?”  She was clearly trying to keep her voice quiet, and o

They took all of their bits and pieces to a quiet lab in the back of the Philosophy classroom building.  There, in a room lit with the new safety lamps, they laid out everything they’d found so far, pages and notes.  Saydrie pulled out some fresh paper and a pen and began transcribing everything; a

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.

They should have been making their way back downstairs to help Taikie and Saydrie with their project, but Enrie found it was hard to work up the motivation to leave. One kiss led to another, and another one after that, until finally she sighed.  The sun was beginning to set through the cupola w

Gianci, Enrie found, was a bit hesitant about the actual idea of things.  His hand hovered hear the small of her back and the other hand near her shoulder, as if he would like to touch her but was remembering, perhaps, the way she had reacted when someone else had touched her.

He took a step up after her.  “What did you have in mind?  And, ah,” he smirked playf

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 with them.

“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 there.  The first ‘here’

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 reservedly
