Xeria twisted around and looked and Indaturan curiously. “A favour, Indaturan-mirian?” she asked.

“Yes,” he said. “A favour. Sarah-alra has been studying the area of of our brains that causes dragons to be ever-hungry and prone to frenzy. She thinks she’s found something, but she needs to compare it to the same area in an unfallen Kithreia’s brain to see if she’s correct.”

“Oh,” Xeria said. “Of course I’ll help. If nothing else it might help Tal and Viri.”

“Excellent,” he said.

“Do you wish to do it now, Sarah-alra?” she asked.

Sarah pursed her lips thoughtfully before shaking her head. “No, I think not. It’s hard work so I’ll come back tomorrow when I’ve slept if Ystelyan-mirian doesn’t mind.”

“You’ll be welcome,” Ystelyan said.

“Do you think you could bring that young merman Darya with you?” Xeria asked. “Tal seems quite attached to him so I’d like to meet him properly.”

“I’ll ask him,” Sarah said.

“I’m sure he’ll say yes,” Lyrrekka said. “He’d be delighted to have an excuse to visit with Talira. He talks about her all the time.”

“That is good to hear, Lyrrekka-ida,” Xeria said. “It seems he cares as much about her as she does him.”

“Darya befriended Talira when she was still half-made,” Ystelyan said. “And when he and Kyle were very new to my court. Right when they both needed a friend. They’ve been close ever since.”

“So she told me,” Xeria said. “But I got the feeling that it’s more than that.”

“Yes, it could well be,” Ystelyan said. “They’re certainly compatible and they do spend a lot of time together.”

“I’ll ask him to come with me,” Sarah said. “Thank you for helping me.”

“You’re welcome,” Xeria said. “I hope you find something.” “So, what’s next to discuss?” Indaturan said. “I’m aware that you can’t really make agreements on your parents behalf but I don’t want you to have wasted your journey.””Mum and Dad wanted us to get acquainted,” Lydia said. “They seemed to think we’d get on. That’s why they sent us.”

“Acquainted?” He tilted his head at that. “That’s interesting, Was this your mother’s idea?”

“I think so, yes,” Lydia said. “Why?”

“In that case we should do as they suggest. Your mother is a strong precog so I trust her instincts.”

“I do, as well,” Lydia agreed. “If she wants us to get to know each other, she thinks that we’ll need to work together. But there’s nothing more awkward than being shoved into a room with someone and being told to get to know each other. It’s a recipe for just sitting in awkward silence staring at each other.”

Indaturan gave a warm laugh. “I couldn’t agree more, Lydia-ida.”

“But that won’t help,” Lydia said. “So where to start? Why don’t you tell us why you’re so set on returning to Earth even after all this time?”

Andrew sat in the lounge of the Morgan house while his parents went down to the gate to collect Sophie Ashbourne and Edwin Lauder. Their visitors had already been waiting when they jumped into the house.

“We should have brought Ebona or Kenna with us,” Karen said, looking out the window over the garden. “How will we know if they are telling the truth?” Read the rest of this entry »

Indaturan listened thoughtfully to what Sarah had found in her observation of Naria and Draylian’s minds before turning to Ystelyan.

“Your alra Talira’s family are here, aren’t they? Do you think her mother might allow Sarah-alra to look at her mind and confirm her suspicions about this?” Read the rest of this entry »

“My mirian would have understood why the negotiations had to be paused,” Adrian said when he arrived a little later as they were just finishing their meal. “This meeting you have to go to is clearly of critical importance.”

“Yes, but it still wouldn’t be polite,” Matthias said. “And anyway, Sal thinks she found something and would like to share it.” Read the rest of this entry »

“That went well,” Daniel said as they headed back to their house. “I was freaked out when Arran appeared behind us.”

“Hmm, well, we should have considered they might sense someone scrying for them,” Matthias said. “It’s fortunate they were friendly. I think we’ve found some important allies here, and I think their appearance will help us flush Garrett out. He’s not expecting this and he doesn’t do well with surprises. Hopefully he’ll slip up and say something he regrets.” Read the rest of this entry »

Lucas arrived even as Alison was agreeing to allow him to look in her mind. He headed straight over to her and offered her his hand.

“Let’s get this over with,” he said. “Before you change your mind.”

“I won’t change my mind,” Alison said. “But getting it over with is probably a good idea.” Read the rest of this entry »

Valeria recognized Alison even before they were introduced. Not only was she was the youngest girl in the group but as soon as she’d entered the room, the girl had squeaked and hidden behind one of the adults. Valeria had expected to feel to same rage as she had when she met Julie – or even more, since this girl was the one who had actually killed her husband – but Alison looked terrified and so fragile that she found that she couldn’t really hold on to her anger in the face of such obvious pain and fear. The man she had hidden behind stepped to one side and put his arm around her shoulder before looking at Valeria.

“You are Queen Valeria?” he asked. Read the rest of this entry »

The group left Faith and her family settling into a couple of free rooms in one of the dorm houses and headed straight back to the one where they were staying. No sooner were they through the door than Lydia ran across the room and hugged Daniel.

“Oh God, you’re okay! Thank goodness! I was so worried.”

Daniel froze in surprise for a moment before hugging her back. “I’m fine, Lyd. We were never in any danger. The Silvers seem quite friendly.”

“What happened?” Lyrrekka asked from the sofa. “I gather they came back with you?” Read the rest of this entry »

Sonia looked taken aback at Faith’s easy agreement.

The other woman must have noticed because she grinned in response. “You usually have a hard time getting families to agree to join your group?”

Sonia nodded. “Well, lost lines don’t turn up very often but yes, they tend to fear being subsumed – and most of them didn’t have their first encounter with the families by one of them trying to kill them. We expected that to make things harder.”

Faith chuckled. “Well, yes, I might have been more cautious but you did send Alison, Logan and the others back unharmed when you would have been justified in not doing so.” She paused and pointed to the sky. “And then there’s that. You need our help and in the circumstances it would be remiss of us to refuse it.” Read the rest of this entry »

Silence followed Alison’s statement. Daniel stared at the girl; she was still hugging herself but now had a defiant look on her face as if she were daring them to argue with her. He risked a look sideways at his parents and saw they looked just as stunned as he felt.

“How?” Matthias asked eventually.

“The normal way, I imagine,” Alison said. Read the rest of this entry »
