     Fandil paced in the cramped back room of the Flower Shoppe.  The information
he'd gotten from the young Fratsfan mage Elosjon should be followed out.  It could be
an important clue.  It felt urgent.  But Lenpro wasn't back yet.
     Lady Fern looked up from the geranium she was repotting.  "Sit DOWN, brother!
All this stomping around doesn't accomplish anything except to disturb the plants."
     "There's something I need to check on--quickly, mind you--outside Fratsfa, but I
can't leave until Lenpro returns."
     "Why not?"
     Fandil blinked at her.  "Ah--we started this together, you know, and I don't
feel right about going off without--"
     "You're both grown up," Fern said, "at least as much as men ever are.  If Lenpro
hasn't returned, it's because he feels what he's doing is important, too.  When he
does get back, I'll tell him where you've gone and why.  Where is the difficulty
here, Fandil?"
     "And take that youngster Elosjon with you before he sinks through the floor in
embarrassment.  The girls are having too much fun teasing him."


     Lenpro didn't mention the disappearance of the gate they'd come through, but
Sizzling Sunflower turned to look also.  "It isn't like we need a way out," she said.
"This is a great place, really good soil for the roots, and plenty of sunlight!"
     Lenpro looked at her, suddenly worried.  "Is this what you want for your life,
to become a sunflower completely and stand in the light with your feet in the dirt?
Bees to pollinate you and birds to harvest your seeds?"
     She turned her face, which was rounder and more like the flower she was named
for with every passing moment, toward him, and her eyes opened wide.  "Bees?"
     "I seem to recall that's how sunflowers do it."
     "BEES?"  She blinked at him, startled and dismayed.  "No!  Surely I wouldn't
become a PLANT."
     "Look at yourself," Lenpro said.  "Listen to what you've been saying."
     "The lady wants to be a plant, you shouldn't butt in," someone growled.
     Gladiator and manager turned.  Something that was half man and half feline faced
them, ears laid back and whiskers bristling.  "And this was your choice?" Lenpro
asked, indicating the hybrid form.  "To be neither one thing or the other, unwelcome
in either group?"  To ask such questions here and now was probably dangerous, the
creature looked to be balanced on knife-edge of temper, but he wasn't feeling
diplomatic.  A good fight might clear the--  No, he couldn't push things that far,
what was he thinking?  Was this place getting to him, too?  He had responsibilities,
and they did not include getting himself killed here in some pocket dimension.
"Sorry, not my business.  But the young lady is my business."
     The man-cat looked at them for a long minute, while others of this place
gathered behind him.  Other man-cats, but no two alike, something that might have
been a sort of werewolf, and many stranger forms.  Some were clearly not far from
their human beginnings, but others--he assumed they had started as human, but now it
was hard to believe that.  "You need to see the king," the man-cat decided.  "We will
take you there."
     So, a king.  Not the anarchy he had thought at first.  Was this good or bad?  A
king meant authority he could appeal to in order to get the kidnapped women returned.
But if the king said no, it meant authority on the other side, no recovery of the
women, and maybe no escape for himself and Sunflower.  Well, you played the hand you
were dealt.  He watched the denizens of this place move to surround them and herd
them through the chaotic jumble of buildings and ruins.  They weren't going to be
given a choice to decline.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to ULTRA-VIOLENT, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the MENAGERIE 
stable.  MENAGERIE is no joke as it posted a 4-0-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 
1st place.  Hey everybody, watch out for LITHIUM, who flew up 10 points in the 
rankings after mashing SOLDIER 1 like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was SOLDIER 1, who dropped 7 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with LITHIUM.  Our battling duelmaster AMARANTH 
has managed to hold the title, fending off SUZETTE CREPPAY's none too subtle 
advances.  Better luck next time, GOLDEN CANYON.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed 
protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid ULTRA-VIOLENT, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does CALEAM really have that many 
liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch MENAGERIE's act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from ULTRA-VIOLENT.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Gut Buster -- You shouldn't eat so much.  Really, I understand the impulse, but there
actually WILL be more good stuff next time.  And if you don't, pardon the phrase,
"pig out," you'll enjoy what you do eat more. -- Suzette Creppay

Fallen -- Well, pick yourself UP, dammit. -- Spitzin
P.S.  Rember the Five Second Rule, if you get something up off the floor when it
hasn't been down for more than five seconds, then it doesn't count and you can go
ahead and eat it anyway.
P.P.S.  And if it doesn't get picked up in that time, the dog'll get to it anyway.

Death Rattle -- Good gods, man, what were you THINKING?  If you're going to cook a
pot of dried beans, you have to add water to it! -- Kettelman

Jeremy -- Okay, they're good sausages, but sausage is tricky.  I think it's the
seasonings.  People get real picky about what kind they'll eat and what they won't.
-- Short Order Joe

Knee Breaker -- Arthritis does it adequately. -- Corot Toro

Gut Buster -- Don't blame ME because you asked for fourths on those pancakes. --
