“Well,” Louise said when Julie finished her story. “I remember you using that trick a time or two but I never imagined it was possible to push it further and actually become what you were emulating.”

“It sounds like it’s not exactly usual,” Trent said. “What with it nearly killing her.” He pulled a face. “And that’s an unenviable position you’re in. This Gerian appears to be an enemy and you owe him a life debt.”

“He can eat it,” Julie said flatly. “He used me enough to pay for it. I’m not breaking my ethics to help that prat.” Read the rest of this entry »

As Julie made her way to the seat at the centre of the room, the door of the gymnasium opened and Sarah entered with Trent, whose knife wound she’d been treating. His face was still slightly grey but he was obviously at least mostly healed.

“Oh, good,” Trent said. “We haven’t missed the fireworks. That would have been sad.”

Julie paused and looked over at Sarah with a raised eyebrow. “You told him?” Read the rest of this entry »

“Well, that was interesting,” Ystelyan said. “I’m not sure it’s very ethical but it was certainly interesting.”

“We don’t have time to be ethical,” Indaturan said. “Not if we want to save Kayleigh.”

“You think Xantaria-ida won’t know what you did here?” Dialdra had somehow struggled to her hands and knees in spite of her bonds. “You think she won’t cut the girl to pieces for this?” Read the rest of this entry »

Kyle took Hannah’s hand and held out his other hand to Adrian as Darya did the same on the other side. Dialdra’s blindfold had been removed and she was trussed up on the floor between the four of them.

“There’s something we need to do before we start,” Darya said. “Your bonds to Kayleigh might be enough for us to find her but we could do with more to be sure.” He nudged Dialdra with his foot. “I’d ask you to help us too but I already know you won’t cooperate, so we’ll just have to force you. I wouldn’t have thought it was possible but Adrian and his mirian think otherwise.” Read the rest of this entry »

Kyle and Darya were talking with Talira and her mother after Sarah had completed her comparative scans when Ystelyan summoned all of them. Hannah and Adrian were already in his throne room when they arrived, along with a blindfolded Kithreian woman. Behind him, he felt Xeria stiffen but before she could speak, Ystelyan held a finger to his lips and shook his head.

“We’ll discuss this after we’ve secured Dialdra here.” He looked at Indaturan who was pacing around her and scowling. “Do you want to keep her or shall I?” Read the rest of this entry »

“If everyone agrees, I’d suggest you take her to Indaturan now before she wakes up,” Matthias said. “You can pass the message to Sal to come back while you’re there. We’ll need to question her eventually but I want to find out more about her link to Kayleigh first. Talk to Kyle and Darya – see if they can help with the scrying.”

Adrian tilted his his head questioningly, then his mouth made an oh. “You’re thinking it might work both ways and if we try to peel Dialdra’s mind open we might hurt Kay? That’s actually very possible if she was using Kay as some sort of reference. I’m glad you thought of it. It didn’t even occur to me.” Read the rest of this entry »

“What do you mean? Who is she, Lianne?” Adrian had gone pale at the girl’s words.

“You know what I mean,” Lianne replied sympathetically. “Or you wouldn’t have gone that colour. This woman wasn’t just pretending to love you. She isn’t Kay. I know Kay and that’s not her mind I’m feeling.”

“Are you sure?” Hannah had pushed her way through the gathering to stare at her. “I mean she’s been in a box…”

“I understand that but… for heaven’s sake, she’s your sister and she can’t have been in that box for more than a couple of years, Han! Look for yourself.” Read the rest of this entry »

“Well I guess that tells us who the traitor was.” Sonia shook her head. “What an actor. He didn’t leak a hint… and what he did to this girl.” She knelt down where Adrian and Tara were calming Ella. “We’ll still have to check her, you know.”

“Of course you will.” Ella’s face was still tear streaked but the distressed squeak was fading from her voice. “I understand. It could be a double bluff after all.”

“We’ll have to check everyone – even me and my family,” Alexandra said. “Robert’s flight could be a second layer of deception, though I doubt it.” Read the rest of this entry »

In attempt to avoid more conflict, Alexandra had sent several members of her family to intercept Kayleigh and Garrett before they reached the gym. No one was naive enough to think they’d come peaceably, so everyone at the meeting was sitting in tense silence waiting for the inevitable sounds of combat. Robert was wringing his hands and chewing on his lip, obviously still unable to believe this was happening. Karen almost felt sorry for the twerp.

The silence stretched into long minutes before Alexandra gave a sharp gasp.

“They’ve fled from our ambush!” she exclaimed. “Somebody warned them.” Her eyes narrowed and she glanced around the table. “It seems there is another traitor in this room. No one is leaving until we find out who it is.” She tutted to herself. “And they won’t get far with my family tracking them. We’ll find their co-conspirator while we’re waiting.” Read the rest of this entry »

Julie gave a half smile and tilted her head at Alexandra in a way that suggested she was enjoying herself. “I might have known that you’d realise, Alex. You were the only person outside my family who knew my secret.”

Alexandra gave a soft chuckle. “Your secret? You mean that trick you’d somehow learned. I know resonants sometimes come back but you aren’t resonant.” Read the rest of this entry »
