     Lenpro looked at the mob in frustration.  It had surged in on the Karnhorn-
looking heckler, so that he and Sunflower were now on the outskirts.  And from the
sound of it, injury was being done, to the heckler for a start, and probably to
others.  His first impulse was to leap into the thick of it and try to stop things,
but that would be folly.  A magician who knew just what to do might stop this many-
headed beast, but nobody else was likely to.  He wasn't going to waste time trying.
     "Can you find which way the kidnapped women were taken?" he asked Sunflower.
     Sunflower jerked her wide-eyed attention away from the swirling violence and
nodded.  "Yes."  She took a deep breath.  Violence in the arena, planned and agreed
to, or even violence in an alley, one-on-one, were things she understood and
accepted.  This was different, and in ways she couldn't articulate yet.  But two
young women kidnapped was something she could get her mind around.  "He... he told
me.  That man.  When I first heard about the kidnapping, he told me the, well, he
said Aruaki--werecats, anyway--he said they went toward the Old Ruins."
     No point in cursing the facts, but Lenpro wasn't happy about it.  The Old Ruins
was the oldest part of the city, long deserted and little more than a maze of rubble.
Even vagrants didn't go there in search of shelter, they went to the New Ruins, or to
slums like this one.  The Old Ruins dated back before the last Chaos War, and they
were said to be contaminated with magic-gone-bad, and haunted by vicious ghosts and
other monsters.
     "Then we'd better go that way," Lenpro said.  "Someone else may have noticed 
something between here and there."
     "Are we just going to leave this?"  Sunflower waved a hand at the packed crowd
from which shouts, screams, and the too-familiar sounds of violence were rising.
     "We have to, child.  There's nothing we can do here to make any kind of
difference, and we'd get ourselves killed if we tried."
     "But it's wrong to do nothing!"
     "Yes, but it would be wrong to throw our lives away, too.  Sometimes choices are
hard, and there's no right answer."  Lenpro started walking.
     She hurried to keep up with him.  "I don't like it."  Took a deep breath.  "I
guess I have to live with it anyway, don't I?"

     Fandil frowned at the young magician facing him.  He was a Fratsfan, tall, slim,
blond, a bit of a dandy in his dress, but also very earnest.  "I... we felt your
probing, sir, just before the blast and wondered whether, well--"
     "The 'blast' as you call it," Fandil said, "what do you make of that?"
     The young man shrugged and looked uncomfortable.  "I... we aren't sure what to
'make' of it," he said.  "We have debated it often--this wasn't the first.  There
were two previous blasts much like it.  Some believe it to be an attack, although
they disagree as to who is being attacked.  Others claim it's purely defensive,
although defensive against what we don't know."
     Fandil sighed.  He had almost hoped this young man would be unimportant.  Not a
complication.  But the fellow clearly had useful data, at the least.  "This 'we' you
refer to...?"
     The young magician pulled himself up straighter and taller.  "The Graduating
Class of 523 from the Frafrejan Academy of the Magical Arts!  Ah, sir.  There are six
of us now--since Larsenjo died.  The first blast caught him wide open.  His head
exploded."  He swallowed a couple of times.  "I was there.  It was really horrible."
     And startling, as well, Fandil thought.  A most unlikely result of such a spell.
But there were aspects of that spell or blast which, looking back, he realized were
definitely not normal.  Ah, make that, not in the commonly established mode of
magical practice.
     "So, you have discussed and debated this matter," Fandil said.  "Have you done
any research on it, reached any conclusions?  By the way, what's your name?"
     "Elosjon, sir.  We, um, we didn't like to do any probing right after that first
blast.  Because of what happened to Larsenjo.  But after a little while, we did try
to backtrack the traces.  It wouldn't have worked at all except for the, I don't know
what to call it, the different flavor?  Of the magic in the blast."
     "And what did you find?"  Why had nobody taught this young man to make a proper
report?  It was like pulling teeth to get information out of him.
     "We did finally narrow down the origin point for it," Elosjon said.  "It comes
to Fratsfa from the west, from the northern end of the Daggerspines."
     "Do you blame it on the Aruaki, then?"
     The young mage sighed.  "We wanted to, we really did.  They're so untrustworthy
it just seemed natural that it might be them.  But it isn't.  At least, we're pretty
sure it isn't.  Not the Clanholds territory, anyway.  It seems to be coming from
around Mountain Home somewhere."
     "Didn't there used to be some kind of independent duchy around Mountain Home?"
Lady Fern asked.  "I seem to remember hearing that the last duke fought the formation
of the Andorian League bitterly, and lost, leaving the line vacant."
     "I don't know about the title," Elosjon said, "but there was a son, very young
then, and he'd only be just beginning to be old if he's still alive.  They were pure
Fratsfan, and naturally long-lived.  My grandfather told me about him.  The boy went
off somewhere to study magic and nothing's been heard about him since."
     "Meaning there could be a fully mature magician in Mountain Home who might be
holding a grudge against the Andorian League," Fandil said.  "An unpleasant thought,
but still, valuable information.  I was going to go to Andor, but perhaps I should go
to Mountain Home first...."

     I can't believe the violence in TOBIR!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for ANZAC?  OTAGO 
HIGHLANDERS' proud of him after beating VIRGINAL CONCUBINE and getting 17 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  MR FANG's match with GEORGE FOREMUN cost him a loss of 
9 points!  Was that a tear I saw in WHOLE MUTT's eye, as he took over Duelmastership? 
And wasn't LITTLE BIG MUN fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob 
to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Like, is LADY 
NIP popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of TOBIR!  She's got a 
6-9-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TOBIR ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Helena -- It's okay if you want to wriggle your toes in my fur.  People do that all
