     "Okay," Lenpro said, "we have to go to Andor.  We figured we'd need to do that
eventually.  Why sooner?"
     "Because someone doesn't want us to," Fandil said.  "That, I think, is what the
magical barrier--it's still there, and it must be using an enormous amount of energy
to maintain--that's what it's all about.  Cutting off Andor from Fratsfa."
     "From you?"
     The old mage shrugged.  "I don't know.  Maybe.  Or cutting off a magician there
IN Andor who is seeking help from Fratsfa.  Or both."
     "Or even for some reason you haven't thought of," Lady Fern said, "and the
effects you mentioned are secondary."
     Both men scowled at her.  One may love a sister and still be annoyed at her
unconventional observations and peculiar viewpoint.
     "Yes, perhaps," Fandil said after a moment.  "But we can't base our actions on
'something we haven't imagined'.  We have to work with what we CAN think of.  Which
is that the barrier is a sort of magical 'divide and conquer' effort."
     "Which makes it a reason for you to go," Lenpro said, "but I don't--"
     The door banged open, letting in the smell of flowers from the back room of the
shop and one of Lady Fern's gladiators.  Sizzling Sunflower posed in the doorway,
radiating excitement and energy.  "Someone's kidnapped a couple of girls!  People are
saying it was monsters!"
     "Just 'monsters', nothing specific?" Lenpro asked.
     "Well, the description sounds like a werecat half-changed," the gladiatress
answered.  "I didn't know they could hold themselves at that stage, unless it's the
effect of the shape-changer plague?"
     "There's already widespread distrust of the Aruaki here," Lenpro said, rising.
"People could even just imagine that the kidnappers are werecats, and it would be
enough to bring about attacks on quite innocent people.  I'd better go check on
this."  He shrugged apologetically at his brother Fandil and took Sunflower's arm.
"You can lay most of your plans without my presence, can't you?"
     "Yes, of course," Fandil said.
     As the door slammed shut behind Lenpro and the Flower Girl, Lady Fern said,
"There might be a physical barrier between Fratsfa and Andor, too, as well as a
magical one."
     "What would be the point of that?"
     "It would keep Emperor Alonj from going to Andor and taking control of the
     Fandil sat down with a thump.  "You're right.  I hadn't thought of that.  But is
he ready to go?"
     Fern shrugged.  "That isn't the point.  If the king is truly dead--"  She held
up a hand.  "I know, you're almost certain.  It's just, well, it feels odd to say it.
Like that makes it more real.  Anyway, if there is going to be some new ruler, the
sooner he's in place, the better.  Because whoever gets there first will have an edge
in any, ah, dispute.  If Alonj isn't first--"
     "But there isn't anyone else," Fandil said.  "The people won't accept an elf
from Ardivent or an Aruaki at present, and the High Thane of Convincia is too old.
Raltumas...not a chance, especially not now that Aradi has seceded; their political
credit is no good.  So who else could there be?"
     "Someone you haven't thought of yet," she said, ignoring his theatrical groan.
"Someone who's trying to usurp control, maybe for himself or maybe as an agent for
some enemy--the Karnhorns, maybe.  How should I know?  But there's someone stirring
this pot, Fandil.  That's the person you have to identify and stop."

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I think it's time for you to look at your hole card, Day Turner.  Which is to
say, get a day job, hmm?  Have you considered being an appointments secretary to a
tycoon?  Maybe you could even design and sell a sort of desk calendar with your name
on it, that'd be catchy, and it would be money in the bank.  Think about it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZENSU!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for CORBIE LEK?  
BEYOND THE PALE's proud of him after beating DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and getting 14 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  GRUNT 4's match with TERILEE LINZ cost him a 
loss of 9 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular gal in all 
ZENSU.  She got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) GRUNT 5 thinks his 
11-5-2 and studly character is good enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  DACEANA LINZ stopped GRUNT 5 dead in his 
tracks!  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.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

good. -- Terilee Linz
