Fratsfa:

     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?"
     "But--"
     "And take that youngster Elosjon with you before he sinks through the floor in
embarrassment.  The girls are having too much fun teasing him."

Elsewhere:

     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

     Greetings, Warriors of ZENSU.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for GRUNT 
5, who pummelled CORBIE LEK, to pocket 9 points.  CORBIE LEK certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to GRUNT 5 and losing 3 points in the process!  
GRUNT 5 successfully staved off a grab for the roses by M. CHARDINEE of ZENSU.  Does 
ZENSU have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in ZENSU is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Sober up, young warriors, and take note of CADDIS DEANE's fate!  FRATSFA SLAVE of 
ZENSU handily did him in.  Experience counts for something on ZENSU's sands.  Ask not 
a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir
