Mochsha said, “That means Thursdeck will be allowed to sleep in this house when Vernallor is staying, or busy in the area possibly fishing with Dechapper.”

It helped me when I heard Nerframe admit, “Thursdeck is all right.”

The man had stood silently all this time, but now he bowed as he said, “Thank you, Lady Nerframe.”

“Vernallor is my friend. He is not just the brother of my lady, but my friend. Don’t you ever spoil that relationship.”

“You know that I will at times house my men at one of father’s residences. He has never spoken against it, although has warned me about some men. Heratin gets a new lady each year, and father does not refuse them. Other siblings have taken on valets, maids, etc., let me even say spouses, and they have not been refused.”

“And he has not spoken against Nerframe.”

“And she is an odd one.” Orintious then turned back to the man to ask, “Who is she?”

At the end of my presentation, I added, “And I will still dance in front of the best Kallotech has to offer and suffer no harm.”

Hearing Bechorei then say, “So, you dance?” brought a smile to my face.

“Yes, I will dance. Actually enjoy it.”

“I saw you turn to these strangers, Lossurp. Why do you think they would know?”

“Sha Inchell has studied things of this world. She brought me here. She might know. As for Makinor, he is a divine champion. If he knew something I would trust what he told me.”

“But you would not trust me?”

“I don’t know you.”

“Everyone on Davelda is immortal. Well, was immortal, as they are again having children. It’s a long story, but Inchell is over seven hundred years old.”

“How old is Makinor?”

I could not help but smile as I answered, “Fifty-two.”

“No, Nemerra. I have heard too much, seen too much. I am hoping my father understands. Wait for me to finish, Nemerra, then we can make plans.”

I believe the girl began crying, although was relieved to hear an older lady say, “I believe I can understand your caution, Master Lossurp.”

“Thank you, Sheikha Deshim. Do not fear that I will work against your plans. What I fear is what I am going through forcing me to take a different path.”

He seemed embarrassed, but replied, “Her younger sister is being presented to my father for me. I’m a second son, but it seems this mission is giving me status.”

I had to ask, “You have not heard from your father?”

“I won’t until it’s final. That is why I am talking to Cherine. She’s a classmate, and a friend. She is making sure that I am not against it.”

Princess Jelnaya then said, “You see, Makinor. You make plans ahead of time.”

“I don’t know,” I replied. “Considering the two were with each other, I guess Krachern could be said to have been making a move on Inchell. Why haven’t you been doing that?”

“She does not worship a god of our world.”

“Always something, isn’t it?”

He was adjusting his sword belt as if preparing to spar with me, but froze to say, “Excuse me?”

“Are you willing to kill for it?”

“That is a little extreme, don’t you think?” I replied.

“We are talking military. We are talking some group, possibly another military, out there already firing missiles. We are talking about those of Lossurp’s country playing politics and maybe making threats. It could go there. Make the decision now, as once things start I believe we will need to see them through.”

“If that is true then when they come for the rifle they should do so nicely.”

“Our problem is that we don’t care. We just want to complete our mission. Whatever else is going on, is something we would rather not deal with.”

Makinor asked, “Why is that our problem?”

“Because we are going to have to deal with it.”
