Her father remained long enough to show the people that he gave his support, and then went off, as he put it, 'shopping for a few loyalists, and anything not nailed down to pay for my damned land."

The bulk of Tamalyn's guard turned out that morning, ready for the trip to Hesterbur.

As she had expected the majority of those who came for the trip were in the fashion industry. Those in entertainment, restaurants, brewing and crafts had no need to attend. Though there were a few nervous spouses and older children. Though thankfully no one sent young unattended children. She assured the family members they were welcome to come along. They took names of each person and Tamalyn committed them to memory, just in case. She explained that each would have at least one guard with them and cautioned them to remain with their guard so they wouldn't get lost in the city.


They arrived in the lobby of the traveler a couple of hours before dinner. "You each have the hours in the city, afterwards I will treat you all to dinner before we head back." She explained and watched as they nervously found a guard to accompany them.


"Good afternoon Belinda" she greeted the woman at the desk. "I am going to need to reserve some tables for dinner. Not for all the guards, they can pick their restaurant of choice, but I would like my guests to be able to view the attire of the finer dressed diners. Is there by chance a balcony section that would accommodate us?"

Able & Aria

She really didn’t sleep. She wasn’t sure that he did either. So much had come to pass. Her father and brother dead, no telling what had happened to her mother. Did she care that the men of her family were dead. Yes. No. They were her family, but she was used to being ignored, until she exerted any sign of independence, and then she felt the sting of rattan at her father’s hand.  Her brother wouldn’t take her side, and, in truth, was as likely to either join in or just watch and taunt her, while her mother did nothing. He’d killed them, she decided, this man Able. He could have killed her. He didn’t. He could have escaped without a trace, but he risked his own chance by taking her with him. She owned her chance at freedom to a man that murdered her kin. Did she care? Yes. No. Not as much as she should.

He roused her at dawn, she quickly braided her hair and hid it under the page’s hat, and with a few sips of water they started walking. “We’ll eat in a few miles,” he told her. “I cached my gear off this way.”

It was nearly an hour’s walk to a small wagon, covered in a tarpaulin and brush, he uncovered it and slipped into the brush and lead out a pair of mules, picketing them near the wagon. He opened a box and drew out an odd oil lamp and a kettle,” Tea first,” he smiled and she looked dubious.
“You dislike tea?”

“I’ve never had it,” she shrugged. “My father called it a Selnen vice.”

He grinned at that and set his kettle on the cooking lamp and closed the shutters to hold in the heat. “Foolish man, nothing is finer than a nice cup in the cool of the morning.”

She nodded skeptically.

Aria had a change of heart after her first sip, and enjoyed her cup of sweet, milky tea as Able made them a breakfast of bacon, chopped potatoes and eggs, fried up together in the skillet. They ate directly from the pan, as neither felt much like washing up more than they had to; and, Aria reflected, she’d never washed a dish in her life.

She was nervous as they rode in the wagon together, any time they saw someone else along the road he had her curl up in the back under a blanket.  Able shared the odd work with those that passed, commented upon the cloudy, cool weather or advising each other upon road conditions in their route of travel.  They made camp that night with a group of traveling merchants, Able took the opportunity to procure her a few simple dresses and a pair of stout leather trousers, similar to his own, and a few shirts and a pair of boots that actually fit.

“How fond of your hair color are you?” he asked.

“It’s brown,” she shrugged. “Not really all that exciting.”

Good,” he replied. And that night he opened one of his kit bags and in the course of a couple of ours, she became a redhead, a darker auburn shade. “There,” he said at last, letting her examine herself in his shaving mirror. “That should help you not match any descriptions. Dress as I do tomorrow, we don’t want to give anyone any hint that you might be anything but a common merchant woman. They both looked at the sky as it started sprinkling, and sighed together. Able laid out his bedroll and looked at her apologetically. “Afraid we’re going to have to double up.”

“Might look suspicious otherwise,” she agreed with a sigh and slipped into the bedroll in her long shirt, Able, dressed similarly, laid down next to her and shifted a bit to get comfortable. Aria didn’t sleep well, a few nightmares haunted her at first, then she laid there looking up at the blackness of the wagon bottom. An her third loud sigh Able grumbled and pulled her into spoons with her and, snug under his arm, and she fell into a deep sleep at last.

She woke alone, to the smell of something wonderful cooking. Able was under a tarpaulin lean to along the side of the wagon, a fire just beyond.  A round loaf of bread rested on a plate under the tarp, covered with a cloth. There was a covered roasting pot, coals rested on the iron lid. “It’s still midnight,” Aria mumbled, “how did you get all of this done?”

“It’s barely past dawn,” he chuckled. “But it is today.  Tea in the kettle.”

She perked up at that and slipped into her trousers, grumbling at their fit and scowling at his pronouncement that they’d fit better when broken in. She dropped a tea candy into her mug and a shave of sugar before poring tea over them, stirring until they were well-mixed.
“What is for breakfast?” she asked.

“Took a prairie hen,” he said. “The early bird was taken before it found its worm. Roasting a few potatoes and some wild onions and garlic and a bit of this and that I found wild. He pointed to the small pan off to the side. “And some stewed apples.”

“You’re a good cook,” she observed. “Where did you learn?”

“Here and there,” he replied with a grin. “Hunger is a good teacher.”

She nodded at that.

“It was a breezy ride that morning, huddled under oilskin coats to hold out the rain, Aria’s hair under a floppy hat of the same stuff to protect the color. “Be a few days to get to the river,” he told her. “We just ride along and keep a good eye out for trouble. If we must, we’ll shed the wagon, I have saddles in the bottom of the wagon, in case. The rest are doing the same, so we’ll blend in. Bit of luck there. We’ll put what we need into the saddlebags and leave the rest. We’re riding toward a battle zone, so I’ll say that we’re going to sell goods to the soldiers out in the field. I have some goods for that back there. If we find trouble, stay behind me and away from them, I’ll handle it.”

“Are you that good?”

“Have been so far,” he shrugged.

It was almost reassuring.

======================================================================================

==================================================

The 20th Scouts Legion was unusual in the Tamber Militia, or in most of the Selnen armies, in fact. A thousand scouts trained to operate by stealth, they would close with an enemy force, slip amongst their ranks, and assassinate officers and warrants as they gathered information. Now they closed upon the large compounds that held tens of thousands of women, children and the elderly. And the guards.

“Four compounds,” a sergeant reported. “Looks like there’s a few hundred thousand people, all together. Looks like they have one of their legions per compound, so five thousand in all. They have inner and outer walls, and the guards don’t go into the inner ward, they stay on the walls or between them.”

“They’ve stripped down the city garrisons to block the army,” Legate Skullcutter thought aloud. “We need to put scouts inside the compounds, tell the people what is going on out here. We’ll put 1st Battalion on these two, the 2nd Battalion will be on these two,” he pointed at the map as his officers crowded around. Pick your best platoons for the jobs, we’ll strike each compound and in the fighting, we’ll put a platoon into each to organize them within. Report everything back to us. The Palatine are coming, so we’ll need to have a full report for them. We’ll still have two squadrons, two hundred troopers, at each compound. I want them afraid to stick their heads over the wall. If we’re lucky, they’ll send men out after us, melt into the ground and come up killing. I want them hiding between the two walls. We can thin them down a bit.”

“What of their supplies? The people we’re here to rescue will be damned hungry if the food doesn’t get through.”

“Judging by the number of wagons they’ve sent, not much is getting to them anyway,” Skullcutter sighed, frustrated at his lack of numbers. “We’ll capture all that we can and hold the wagons, when the Palatine and engineers break into the compounds, we’ll have some food for them, at least. It’s an ugly business,” he said, confirming their fears. “But we’ll have to keep their heads down for two days at most. If we get the platoons in tonight they can start organizing the prisoners. Send them in with all of the surgeon’s supplies that they can carry, and have them treat all they can. There won’t be much we can do about food, but if we gather all of the emergency rations we can find, the dried kernan fruit, we can at least see to the most critical.”

There were nods at that. “Get shifted into your positions, we’ll all lead off at midnight.”

==============================================================

“My Lady,
    We’re pushing them hard, I have held back from battle and am letting them run themselves to exhaustion. Their road is strewn with broken down wagons and horses, very few prisoners. It appears that they have executed some that have attempted to fall out or desert. Bloody business that. My toes are nice and comfortable in my plush socks.
    Oldwine”

“To Her Highness, Lady Tamalyn Telbrantil, Grand Duchess of Tamber and Governess of the Frontier
To Lord Taran Oldwine, Marshall of the Frontier.
    It is my honor and duty to report that all bridges in the eastern area of operations are destroyed and the port, its ships and facilities are similarly destroyed. We have freed over 26,000 in bondage and are using tender ships to return them to Tamber, under escort. We continue to patrol the rivers of east-central Gamedian. Word is spreading and we have more freedmen and families flagging us down from the banks to take them off to freedom. The Royal Navy has sent large numbers of carrying vessels to take them off and they are being put to good use. Our raids ashore have caught imperial forces off their guard and we’ve freed many conscripted slaves as well.

Your Obedient Servant,
    Ryan Taraborne, Fleet Admiral, LDPO”

“To Her Highness, Lady Tamalyn Telbrantil, Grand Duchess of Tamber and Governess of the Frontier
To His Excellency, Lord Taran Oldwine, Marshall of the Frontier.
    It is my duty and honor to report, all bridges in the western area destroyed. The port and all ships and facilities are burned as well. We have freed over 48,000 held as slaves. We are using every available space to ships these unfortunates to Tamber, with all escort we can spare. We hold the rivers in this region of western central Gamedian. More are seeking us, and freedom. We continue to scrounge all available vessels and barges to move people, and have requisitioned and received empty troopships and hospital ships to continue moving them north. They’ve tried to rebuild a few of the bridges, and have been thrashed in the process. Recommend that land forces sweep this region thoroughly as our own range is limited.

Your Obedient Servant,
    Admiral Lara Fowler, LDPO”

“My Lady,
    A corps of the Fifth Army will sweep the territory between the rivers controlled by Fleet Admiral Taraborne and Admiral Fowler. Far eastern Gamedian will be swept by two additional corps from the Fifth as well. These operations will commence within two days.

Serpental”

“My Lady,
    To condense all of the reports into a single narrative.
The Frontier Fleet has destroyed all bridges, preventing troops from shifting west to oppose Lord Oldwine. They have destroyed the ports that could bring in reinforcements and send aid for the Imperial Capitol.
Three Corps, under orders from the Crown, were positioned to support operations, his majesty has found results to be so encouraging that he ordered them in to clear eastern Gamedian, allowing the Frontier Fleet concentrate on the evacuation of freed peoples.
Forces assembled from Denenstaer and Wisnore, under the Command of Grand Duchess Bragg have attacked into Koriche and will clear it and then northwest Gamedian, when they’ll link up with Lord Oldwine.
    Darkwine “

"I'll set aside a dining room for you," she replied. "And we do have many shops here as well, if you want to show them fashions," Belinda reminded her.

"True" she nodded, "each has their own style and design techniques. I brought them here as their starting and ending place because there are so many different stores available. And, because it was the first, and best, place I thought of" she added smiling. "But, they are adults and do not need my guidance, they just need to see what Selnen's like. Papa did tell you what he did yesterday, right? He repossed his buildings, and the people who work in them, from Valcastria and brought them to Tamber. Eastguard Duchy to be exact, these are the dress makers, leather artisans, men's fashion designers and the like. In one fell swoop, we now have two cities. You should spread the word" she added, "clothing, artists, hotels, entertainment, training houses and so much more will be opening within a day or so." She looked around and saw that most had left the immediate area discussing places to see and do with her guards. "I am going to go to the Golden Lion for afternoon tea" she added, "let me know if I am needed back."

"The reputation of the Redwall will help," Belinda nodded. "Starting from nothing, you'd have a hard time drawing interest."

"I know, thankfully the RedWall is a place that draws people from all over the world. Powerful, rich people" she specified. "Papa even took the walls, though I don't think he actually owned those" she brought a finger to herlips to show it was a secret. "Cecil and Francesca Bragg own an apartment in the RedWall, and probably a few other people do too" she added. "Oh, and Blue is there too. That will probably spark some interest. I really should go though. I only gave them three hours and I have some dispatches to read and send. Then I want to write some letters to people I know will be interested in the RedWall. I could stay and do it here, but when I come to town and don't visit the Golden Lion, they get all hurt."


Tamalyn made her goodbyes then went to the Golden Lion. She read through her dispatches. She looked at Indra and Dread, "did you see how many purple have been freed? I need so much more food, clothes, housing" she couldn't believe the numbers and the battles weren't even finished yet. She quickly wrote to Uma Telbrantil-Melldress and sent her the numbers of freed people already in their way, and added that there would probably be more coming when they won the war.

"That is just the river campaign," Dread agreed. "When they sweep the south there'll be more. Even more when Oldwine finishes his sweep, start thinking close to a million people, men, women and children. More men as they'll be farm workers as well."

"I am hoping that we do not have quite as many orphans as we did before" she added with a sigh. "One of the things I am concerned about is the military that were conscripted. They are Gamedien born and raised, were they forced into service" she nodded, "but, they were still raised with the imperial mentality. Darkwine suggested that they would want to return to their farms and families. Do you think that will be the case?"

"From reports that we receive," Dread thought aloud. "They not only have conscripts in the army, they have forced slaves under arms. Holding families as hostages for good behavior. That is part of the reason Oldwine is waging war as he is, he's hoping to force the army to disintegrate rather than crushing them all. If we crush them, we'd be killing men that have no desire to fight, just a compulsion."

 She nodded, "I do understand, I just worry. I think it is my duty" she added and gave a smile. "Let's order a round of beers before our work preparing for a million freed people to arrive." She looked around the bar, "who wants to dance?" She called out.

She soon found herself passed from man to man, they each swung her in a few circles before passing her to the next.

"I don't think that is dancing," Dread chuckled as he ordered her Blue Fire.

"But it's fun," one of the young enthusiasts shouted back

 Tamalyn laughed, "it is how they always dance with me" she said breathing hard after she was released. She sat back down and took a big drink of her ale. "It is fun" she shrugged, "but I really do have a few letter to write. Her first letter was to Cecil Bragg telling him where is Valcastria apartments were. Then she wrote to Helm Hammerleck telling him a large portion of his family had arrived with the RedWall. She mentioned that all stores and business of the RedWall was in Eastguard as well. She wrote a similar letter to Stormy. She then sent a more form letter to all the Grand Dukes and Duchess. There were a few other more personal letters written to those she knew liked to shop in the RedWall. Finally she finished and sent them all off in an instant. She finished her drink and wow to Teena giving her instructions for advertising and publicizing the RedWall.


"Now" she looked up, "I can worry about transportation and supplies for those people. How many people can be moved at a time, based on our current number of barges?"

"Taraborne and Fowler are working that," Dread replied. "They took a lot of ships and barges and they've confiscated even more. They'll get everyone here. Here is where you need to worry about, and you have dukes and your government working on that."

==============================================

The river, days later, was drawing close when he set saddles by the picket pins and carefully loaded their saddlebags. Aria looked at this and grew concerned.  “What is wrong?” she asked him.

“Soldiers,” he murmured. “They’re scouting the caravan. Probably going to rob it in the night.”

“But, they’re soldiers!” She hissed. “They protect caravans.”

He looked at her with amusement. “They’re Gamedian soldiers, soldiers for an empire coming apart, and whose government just fell apart. Until somebody restores the government, it is going to be fighting among them, and they’ll grab all that they can, especially with the threat along the river to keep them nervous.”

She frowned, but didn’t argue. That evening, when the fires were dying down, they led their saddled mules from the camp, mounting some distance away and riding cross country. Behind them they heard shouts and screaming. That forced her to rethink her opinion of soldiers. She was used to polished officers of the court, these were rough soldiers and officers of the field, something unknown to her.

They made much better time through the day, not stopping even for tea, which she now missed. They also ate in the saddle, some peculiar pressed cakes of meat and berries and a bit of dried fruit and nuts. They slept beside their mules that night, and she woke in the night to Able’s hand on her shoulder. “Stay down,” he said. “Trouble.”

She laid there and listened, noises were faint, but she knew that somebody had died out in the darkness, and then another, and yet another. The night was dead silent, no sounds of nature, just the occasional crack of a broken twig, or the sound of crushed leaves, and she knew that none of those sounds were Able, he moved in complete silence.

Finally he returned to her, oddly, he carried a pot of hot water. He grinned at her and made tea. “Camp of ten of them,” he murmured. “Some heard the mules and came looking.”

“Are they...gone?” she chose that word carefully.

“They are gone,” he confirmed.

“All ten?”

He nodded and prepared her cup the way that she liked it and split a honey cake with her as well. “If we go now, we can be at the river a bit after dawn. Eat up and we’ll make our way in the dark.”

===================================================

Messiese looked over the compounds from a tall hill along the valley that the compounds were situated in. “Signal to the engineers,” she ordered. “Take the gates.”

A thousand engineers swarmed the gates as the scouts and Palatine kept the defenders low with storms of arrows. There were demands to surrender, but none of the soldier here were conscripted slaves. The gates fell, two, then other, then another, then the last and as each fell the Palatine swarmed into the compounds, sweeping the areas between the walls, placing archers up onto the inner wall, armed with bows the slaughter was rapid and nearly complete.

“Marshall of the Frontier Oldwine,
We are in possession of the captives in the compounds. We have enough rations, including captured rations, to support our wards for five days, we need resupply at once.
M T-M, Marshall commanding 3rd Corps Palatine.”

================================================

Oldwine rode out to where the now tightly gathered defenders waited to oppose them, blocking the capitol road. “I am Marshall of the Frontier Oldwine, Lord Defender of the Palatine Order. You will receive no reinforcements from the east, our forces hold it. You will receive no help from the north, they are running or fighting for their lives,” his voice carried for miles, a gift of his Palatine abilities. “We have freed the captives in the compounds at the enclosure, and once we break through you, we’re going to them, to take them to freedom. If any of you assembled against me are conscripted slaves, throw down your arms and run. You’ll find my cavalry behind me waiting for you. For those without slave brands, drop your weapons and surrender and you’ll be fairly treated. When I order my command forward, they will kill anything still holding weapons, and accept the surrender of those with the mother wit to give up this hopeless cause. Do it now,” he shouted the last, and his arm swept down, and his companies stepped off, advancing with loud shouts of defiance as they rapped their shields with rhythm as they advanced mercilessly.

Many surrendered, many ran as ordered, some stood to fight and were cut down. Oldwine left the infantry, under General Ironhelm, to sort out the mess here. He ordered the 20th Corps under General Connor Telbrantil-Meldresse to secure and supply the captives in the valley, and remain poised to attack the imperial capitol, if necessary. He took the cavalry and rode to meet Malia Telbrantil-Meldresse, he’d flatten any of the blocking force that didn’t run with cavalry.

“My lady,
   We’re still counting prisoners and sorting prisoner from freed conscripts. The total number is close to 120,000. Of that I estimate 40,000 conscripts. We’re in possession of the slave compounds near the capitol, nearly 200,000 there. It’ll be a damnable nuisance getting them all out of here, but we’ll figure it out. I’m moving forward with the cavalry to thrash a few more corps near the capitol, provided that they don’t retreat inside. I hate flaming sieges. Boring. My britches are all starting to thin in the seat from all of this time in the saddle, but my feet are quite comfortable.
   Oldwine”

"It wasn't my intention to send more, I was trying to ascertain how long and how trips it might take to move that many people" she explained. "If I do not have to worry about that issue" she said, "then what issue do you think I should focus on?"

He chuckled. "Everyone is busy and doing their duty, your government has finally found its footing and is things are running smoothly. People are finding jobs and being educated. Farms are growing up across the province, soon the graineries will fill. The schools are teaching, people are learning. The armies are strong and hold the wicked at bay. You do not do things, or not many, you make sure that others are doing things, and they are. You're not a sergeant to lead, you're a marshall to command. If you climb into the trenches, you confuse the troops." He chuckled at that. "For now, worry about the Redwall, let your workers work, you'll find out quickly if it isn't working."

"True, and it only just occurred to me that they have no library or schools. The school currently the schools in the area probably cannot handle the additional children. There are more than most think" she smiled, "I used to throw candy to them." She quckly wrote a dispatch to Hara Burralt, the minister of schools, about the RedWall needing schools.

"They have the buildings," Dread nodded. "Not sure about the teachers or how good they are if they have them. Lots to do, and I think that there's a lot of jobs and money that can be raised by the Redwall."

"There wasn't a school in the RedWall, it was considered taboo for good women to go there. The schools were outside the wall. But, I sent a dispatch to the minister of schools. She should be working on it now. I suppose there could be a few teachers who came, but not many" she added.

"The banks are being converted," he nodded. "The hospitals will need to be manned. Someone needs to come down from the constables to see how things work here. I know the Outfitters are around somewhere. A lot of excitement in your government. I'm curious to see what your father brought back as well."

"The command staff of the constables are Selnendrin trained soldiers, hand picked by Oldwine. It should mostly be a a few training sessions.I am also sure that Marshal Serpental met with the constables last night. But, I will confirm that when we return tonight. As for medical personnel, I will send a dispatch to General Sessillen, she is the chief surgeon of the province. I will stay up on the things needed, but, there isn't a lot that is needed for them. Except to show them my support and to promote their businesses."

"See," Dread teased her. "All handled. He chuckled as Indra walked toward them. "Guess who visited the Rampant Stallion last night?"

================================================================

Gamedian:

“The First and Second armies are either dead, wounded, deserted or captured,” Field Marshall Kaerek Garandana reported to Grand Marshall Perdek Tammadan. Half of the Eighth army was lost with the damned slaves. That leaves us an army and half, three corps in all. Seventy-five thousand men of the Imperial Guard to hold this city against a hundred and seventy thousand. Their troops are veterans, our veterans died a few years ago against this bastard Oldwine.”

“Succinctly put, Kaerek,” replied sarcastically. “So what do we do about it? You must have some sort of idea, you ran all the way here, leaving your command to ruin, to bring me news, so what is it?”

“We should evict every slave from the city, pull in our men and supplies, barricade the gates and hold the city, and keep our emperor on his throne.”

“Your duty to defend the throne was a hundred miles to the east,” Tammadan snapped,” he gestured to a pair of soldiers standing behind the field marshal, who proceeded to hack him down. “Hang his body from the battlements. The penalty for abandoning one’s command is the same as it is for desertion.” He paused and thought a moment. “Empty the city of slaves, push them out onto the plains. Every last one of them, and start withdrawing the 5th, 6th and 7th corps into the city. Disarm the slave conscripts and drive them out as well.”
======================================================

“Bloody idiots,” General Cyrus Ironfist, second in command of the Third Palatine Corps observed. “They’re expelling the slaves and blocking up all of the gates while their men on the outside sit like mushrooms waiting to go in.”

“They’ve even left their field fortifications, miles back, they’re squatting out there in the open,” Messiese agreed. “Mount up the engineers and the corps, we’re going in, we’ll put ourselves between the soldiers and the city. Send to my son,” she smiled. “Send to General Telbrantil-Meldresse, we need two companies to follow us in, one will come in on their flank, one from their rear. When it looks like the tide flowing out has all but abated, we move. We attack the troops, the dwarves take the gate and hold them open. When the two companies engage, we go into the city. We’re going to put the scare into them.”

“And then?”

“And then, Cyrus,” she grinned grimly. “I’ll arrest their bloody emperor.”

Earlier that day in Southern Gamedian:

“We’re going to need a name for you,” he said quietly as they looked out over the river.

“I have a name,” she seemed puzzled.

“If I give your proper name, they’ll see you as a captured Imperial princess,” he said quietly. “If we have a new name for you, then you’re my companion. Nobody will consider my companion a prize of war.”

“Oh,” she said, stunned by that thought. “Any ideas?”

“Something that won’t trip you up,” Able replied thoughtfully. “Ariana Southsea?” he asked. “Aria for short?”

“That will do,” she nodded and started repeating it quietly over and over to herself. She dozed off as she contemplated her new name.

She woke at a very loud whistle, she sat up from where she leaned against him and saw a large boat or a small ship under a single sail. He rose and whistled again, an odd sound, like a signal. The boat turned toward them and drifted close to the shore. Able left Aria holding the mules and waded out to the boat and spoke with the commanding midshipman. Soon he returned to her, stripped the saddles from the mules and let them run free, leaving the saddles he took up his pack and saddlebags and led her into the shallow water. They loaded up quickly.

Aria wasn’t sure what Able had told them, but the midshipman was studying them with a mixture of curiosity and suspicion. “We’re going to catch up with a hospital ship,” Able told her as he laid out the bedroll for her in the bow.  “They’ll take us north.”

He saw the midshipman’s  hand move to his belt pouch and drew out a shall sheet of paper, he read it, his eyes widened. “Right then,” he said loudly. “Time to make speed,” he clapped out a beat to the drummer in the stern, who set a much faster pace. Aria saw the eyes of forty marines that looked back over their shoulders at her as if she were the cause of their impending sweat. She huddled down in her bedding and tried to sleep.

====================================================

It was one of the largest ships that Aria had ever seen. She and Able were drawn up, along with their gear. Able untied a wineskin from his pack and dropped it down to the midshipman. “What is this?” the young officer asked.

“A gallon of Trannival Rum,” Able replied and saw the faces of the marines light up. Sailors love their rum, and he was giving them a quality that they rarely saw afloat. He waved and they followed a warrant toward the stern.

“Captain,” Able greeted the ship’s commanding officer. “If I may, I need to send a dispatch of great priority.”

The captain dubiously passed over his dispatch book.

“To Lady Miranda Bragg, Baroness of Selnendrin and all she may further determine.
   Prince Raran Gamedia, The Grand Duke of the Imperial Province of Gamalara, claiming to be Kin of Gamalara and Prince Karak Gamedia, Duke of the Imperial Province of Gamalara, claiming to be Crown Prince of Gamalara and other members of their family and the provincial government have perished in a fire at their palace. There is now no chance of an alliance by marriage between Gamalara, Denenstaer, and Quaraman, at least until the debate over who shall rule shall be resolved. There are signs that the army in this province are in disarray and have started raiding their own commerce. Stability is in doubt.
   Able Cander

(Copy to Tamalyn through Oldwine)

The captain glanced at it and then took a second, and much harder look at Able. “Better get that off,” Able reminded him. “There are some waiting to see it.” The captain nodded and snapped shut his book and tapped it quickly. “Then,” Able looked down at his filthy clothes. “We could use baths and a room, if you have one, or just someplace to sleep. A good meal wouldn’t go amiss either.”

====================================================
Now: dispatch from Able arrives:

"Not really," Dread grinned. "Breecher used to tell us stories about the Redwall all the time."
