  2. Epilogue: Jamian

    0

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    Last week of August, 2000

    The sun was beating down on the back yard of the small cottage, so Jamian was sitting under the awning with Dominique and Carey, drinking lemonade and reading a cheap paperback D.J. had lent him. His babies were just waking up from a nap, wiggling ineffectually in their shared cradle.… Read on


  3. Epilogue: Kailani

    0

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    First Week of August, 2000

    “Have you thought about visiting your mother?” Kai regarded Conrad over the pile of textbooks, unsure why she’d picked now to bring this up. Maybe because his tail was twitching and he’d started doodling in the margins.… Read on


  4. Epilogue: Shahin

    0

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    First Week of July, 2000

    “It’s not exile, Shahin.” Yngvi and Ayla sandwiched her, hugging her tightly from both sides. “It’s a month, that’s all.” Yngvi, always rational, patted her shoulder.

    “The doctors both said it would be good for you to see your family for a little while.… Read on


  5. Exterlude: Caspian

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    Summer, 2000

    The trail had gone cold on him for weeks, but Caspian had picked it up again, found his lead on the border and traced it here.

    Here. This place was listed on one of his Queen’s maps, but it was an old map, and old place, and they assumed the ashanevaei didn’t use it anymore.… Read on


  6. Interlude: Ambrus

    July 21, 2016 by Lyn

    Graduation Day, Year 5 of the Addergoole School

    Ambrus watched his daughter’s graduation dispassionately, watched her walk across the stage with the others, monster and not. He watched his Mistress watch them, and wondered if she’d ever understood what she was making here.… Read on


  7. Interlude: Callista

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Graduation Day, Year 5 of the Addergoole School

    “Stay here.” Ib patted Callista’s shoulder gently. “Clean up the place, and get stuff packed. When I return, we’ll go to Maureen’s and sign custody of the children over to me.”

    “Yes, Master.” Callista let his words wash over her, and let her body take care of the orders she’d been given while her mind slowly tuned out.… Read on


  8. Chapter 189: Jamian

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Second week of June

    Everything was going to be all right.

    Kailani’s twins were cute, in a wrinkly, noisy sort of way. “Neither of them are named Onomatopoeia,” she’d told Jaya and Shahin, and it had seemed to make sense to her.… Read on


  9. Chapter 188b: Kailani  

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    The world kept insisting on being full of pain and blood.

    She could really do with some nice clouds, a little breeze, maybe some rain, but the world kept arguing back with more pain and more blood. She was drenched in sweat, and none of it made any sense at all.… Read on


  10. Interlude: Anatoliy

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Kai had let him take her to Dr. Caitrin’s office, although she had protested around his hand the entire time. Tolly was worried about her. He was pretty sure girls were supposed to know what was going on when they went into labor, and not deny the whole situation the way she had been.… Read on


  11. Chapter 188: Kailani

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “Time after time we warned you, and you didn’t listen.”

    “Your foolish crusades have had too much collateral damage this time, Kai. It’s one thing to battle on your own, but when you bring the wrath down on your crew… that’s too much.”

    “I can’t believe I ever thought you were cute.… Read on


  12. Chapter 187: Shahin

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “How do you think she’s doing?” Shahin leaned into Emrys’ arms, swaying slowly with the music. So different than their first dance… but, for the moment, neither of them had anything to prove.

    “She’s probably doing rather well.” Xaviera had left the dance early with a drunk and handsy Ofir, a determined smile on her face.… Read on


  13. Interlude: Xaviera

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “You’re nice,” Xaviera lied. Sprawled under Ofir, his stubby little bat wings spread like an insufficient umbrella over them, she found it hard not to giggle at him. So angry, so cute… he was like a Chihuahua, compared to the Masters she’d had.… Read on


  14. Chapter 186b: Jamian

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “Enjoying the spoils?” Ardell leered at Jamian; underneath the smile was an edge, however – threat, and something deeper and darker.

    Thinking of what Shiva and Mags had said, he kept his hands where they were, on the small of Kendra’s back and the bottom of her neck, and smiled cheerfully.… Read on


  15. Chapter 186: Jamian

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “Pretty soon, I’m not going to be able to do this.” Jamian buttoned his tux shirt over the growing roundness of his belly, thinking about Kai, stretched like she’d pop, and Shahin, swathed in lace and velvet. He didn’t think about how close to the end of the year they were – barely two months left.… Read on


  16. Chapter 185: Kailani

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    They hadn’t had much of a chance to talk, Thursday night, and when they had, she and Conrad had lain in bed not saying anything, anyway. She wasn’t sure where to start, and “I’m sorry” seemed so horribly inadequate.

    She couldn’t put off talking forever, though, so she slunk home after classes and sat on the bed, not quite looking at him.… Read on


  17. Chapter 184: Shahin

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Friday Afternoon, Second Friday in April, 2000

    Shahin needed some time alone with Emrys. She needed to talk about Xaviera, about what they were doing to do. Her visions, the girl’s behavior… they weren’t helping her. They weren’t teaching her independence.… Read on


  18. Interlude: Tya

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    Ty was winning. He knew it, they knew it. The Director was glaring daggers at him. His Mentor – his father – was trying to hide a smile.

    For at least the third time that evening, Ty wished for the ability to read emotions.… Read on


  19. Chapter 183c: Jamian

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “He talked to her! When I told him not to! When I told her not to.” Ofir’s protests, too, were losing steam. He glanced up at Professor Valerian, found her frowning, and looked back to Luke.

    The PE teacher sat down on the desk with a thump.… Read on

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “Nobody’s killing anybody.” Luke stepped in between the three of them, a wing-tip on Kendra, a hand on Ofir, a hand on Jamian. “Break it up, you three. Now, one at a time, what happened. Kendra?”

    The mouse-girl squeaked incoherently, panic quickly taking her over.… Read on

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    I paid for them titties, get your own
    it aint safe in the city, watch the throne

    Second Thursday in April, 2000

    “I’m going to go to the Library for a bit. Want to come?” Jamian didn’t expect Ty to say yes.… Read on


  22. Interlude: Vlad

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “Hey, Vlad.” Taro thumped down on the couch with two beers and handed one over. They were the only ones in the suite’s common room right now – ‘Bina-and-Cassidy were out with the babies, Kai and Conrad were out at Kai’s practice.… Read on

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    “Wait.”

    Every gaze in the gym was suddenly on Acacia. The Thorne leader was frowning, both hands up.

    “Oh, hell no, you’re not stopping this now, Cay, this was your plan. I get the boy, I get the baby, we can get out of here at the end of the year together.… Read on

    Now maybe
    Well some will say your life was sad
    But you lived it anyway
    And so maybe
    Your friends can stand around and watch you crumble
    As you fall into the ground

    Second Thursday in April, 2000

    Family trees and genetic charts were still swirling in Kai’s head a week later.… Read on


  25. Chapter 181: Shahin

    0

    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    She leads a lonely life

    When she woke up late in the morning light
    And the day had just begun
    She opened up her eyes and thought
    Oh what a morning


    First Saturday in April 2, 2000

    Shahin dreamed.

    The boy had his father’s eyes.Read on
