Edally Academy Chapter 40b: Chasing Honor and Breadcrumbs

Enrie and Saydrie read angry paragraph after angry paragraph.  The scribe had started out describing things as an extended metaphor, but he kept falling into screeds about the failure of the world in the “modern era.”

He was convinced that something had happened to the Bitrani people that had le

Edally Academy Chapter 40a: Findings

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.

Saydrie was muttering to himself as he flipped through books.  After a minute, he asked, “Di

Edally Academy Chapter 39C - Sing a Song of Memory

Saydrie and Taikie considered Gianci’s proclamation for a moment before each nodding in agreement.

“All right,” Taikie agreed. “We’re starting here because it’s safe, looking for any instance of this folk-song, ” Taikie showed Gianci her notepad,  “or anything in this tune. Saydrie?”

Edally Academy Chapter 39B: Return to the Library

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

Edally Academy Chapter 39A: A Kiss Before the Fight

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.  

She scooted b

Edally Academy Chapter 38C - two steps forward, two steps forward.

Enrie stood took a step backwards up the stairs and smiled at Gianci.  “Well, if we’re going to be in close quarters with each other — as it seems we are — maybe we could go for something a little more scenic?”

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

Edally Academy Chapter 38B: Sometimes You Just Have to Dance

Gianci cleared his throat and took a step backwards.  Enrie stood up and took a step downwards, closer to him.

“So…” he offered uncertainly.  “So you would have… gone down to the, that is, gone to the races with me, if you hadn’t been… otherwise occupied, um, planning to be charged with treason?

Edally Academy Chapter 38A: Either Move Forward or Back Up; Doing Both is Dancing

Enrie looked at Gianci.  He looked at her.  There were more important things to be worried about right now, she knew.  But he was between her and the exit, and Taikie was between them and leaving.   

She looked over his shoulder, although there was nothing there.  “I’ve been interested in you si

Edally Academy Chapter 37C: Trouble Shared

“Is this your idea of a joke?” Gianci demanded.  His breath was warm, brushing across the top of Enrie’s head.

“It might be Taikie’s idea of a prank,” Enrie admitted, “but I doubt it.  There are far too few pipes involved.”  In the dark, it wasn’t easy to find the hidden door to the cupola, and
