    Summary

    The program finally starts and she can’t stop herself from grinning stupidly when she hears his voice. They ask about her and she leans forward, listening avidly.

    “We’re very happy to be together for the next eight years,” he tells them.

    Connor punches the air. “Hell yeah we are,” she tells the screen.

    “Have you guys just been texting each other happy faces emojis constantly?” Sid asks.

    “Yeah, lots of kisses,” Leon says and Connor freezes.

    Summary

    Kel sat and thought about it all through the long summer-- thought about joining the Riders when she turned sixteen, or going back to the Yamani Isles with her parents, or running away to become an unlawful bandit hunter. She drank tea with her mother and accepted her quiet sympathy. She wondered what was going to happen to Peachblossom. She did her morning glaive practice dances in the heady air of the tiny courtyard garden of her parents' townhouse, where the cook grew herbs and spices in big overflowing boxes.

    Summer rolled on. She sat, and she thought, and she did not tell her thoughts to anyone. On the first day of what would have been her second year of page training, she woke before the sun and had a quiet breakfast with her father, and then she jogged up the big dusty hill to the palace.

    When the pages trailed out to the practice yards with dubious enthusiasm, she was waiting just outside their ground. Her chin was high, her shoulders loose while her hands gripped her weighted staff.

    "Probationer," Wyldon barked out her, when one of the boys went to fetch him. "Was I unclear in the spring?"

    Kel stared him down, fingers white on her staff, and said, "I'm not a probationer anymore."

    Hey Liz,
    Apparently, I'm the captain of the Decathlon team. Or something. I was just wondering if you had any quizzes or guides that I could use.
    Thanks,
    MJ

    Summary

    “There’s this festival on Centerix B,” Teemu says. “Only happens once every thousand years, nothing like it anywhere. And nothing that could possibly try to kill us this time. I promise. It’s very peaceful.”

    Paul looks heavenward. There’s no guidance there, but there is a rumble of thunder; it’s raining again somewhere in the upper library stacks. “Do you jinx us on purpose? Is that it?”
