Then there was Holzfäller. She frowned at the spot of darkened stone directly below her face. The potion should have worked on him–she even gave him a double dose, but she couldn’t get him to tell her anything.

Her instinct was to go to Tarvek because he’d be able to figure out where she went wrong without making her feel like a dumb child. Not being on speaking terms was hard on more levels than she anticipated.

Her vials weren’t labeled because that gave too much potential information to the enemy, but she was sure she used the correct one.

“What just happened?”

The students returned to their positions in silence, but the trainer obviously wanted an answer. He walked the lines, frowning at anyone even a centimeter out of place before stopping in front of Viktor.

“Well?”

Viktor raised his chin. “I’m not sure Herr Delmeck–it appears some people messed up their training.

“Freedom to overtax your kingdoms and start pointless wars over petty issues like who gets to claim purple as their official state color? You lost so much,” Gil said, rolling his eyes. “The Baron charges a very reasonable tax and in return maintains the roads, keeps the air safe from pirates, and settles your ridiculous disputes fairly, and you get to maintain rule over your own territories. What more do you want?”

Tarvek blinked at him in surprise and a touch of admiration at his poise and dedication then pulled himself together with a shake of his head. “You know, I was just joking about you sounding like the Baron,” he said, “but you really do sound like him.”

The girl giggled, getting their attention again. “Maybe he wants to show off, too, huh?”

Gil sighed. “He does like to do that so it wouldn’t surprise me.”

“Oh shut up, Holzfäller and let me help you.”

Gil opened his mouth, but his stomach grumbled loudly in answer first getting a snort from Tarvek.

  • Notes: Having a numb hand is more troublesome than I’d anticipated. It makes typing extremely difficult so I didn’t intend to do any writing for today, but I decided at the last minute to print off a few paragraphs I’d recently done and work on it long-hand. I managed to get something done like that so I’m trying it again tonight.

Tarvek took another paper that Gil snatched away from him, tearing it nearly in half. “Let me rephrase that in a way your small brain will understand–I don’t need your help. I don’t want your help.”

Grabbing another sheet, Tarvek snorted. “You don’t want it, but you definitely need it if you plan to eat any time today.”

Gil growled–hating Tarvek even more for being right.

Day 16

  • Goal: 102 sentences (approximately 1,530 words)
  • Actual: 0 sentences; 0 words
  • Written: nothing
  • Notes: I have no excuses… I just needed a break so I played Sims for the day. I did feel a little less stressed after, but I’ve developed a new problem from it–my entire right hand has gone numb from holding my hand over the mouse (part of my left hand is also numb from holding my hands at the ready position over the keys). It’s making typing extremely difficult because I can’t feel most of my fingers and can’t move them well. This is going to be trouble.

Tarvek snorted. “How’s that showing off working for you?”

Gil dragged another paper over as his stomach continued to protest. “You know,” he said quietly, “not all of us got to have a jaunty morning snack today–some of us were too nervous to eat all day before being forced to this summit and didn’t get to eat lunch while being dragged around for a castle tour and were drugged at dinner so they couldn’t eat and missed breakfast because someone smeared ink all over their paper.”

By the end, he was spitting the words out through clenched teeth while everyone stared. He ducked his head.

  • Notes: I’ve finally broken into the April sentences which means I’m catching up (still fifteen days behind schedule, though). I might have gotten more done tonight if my son hadn’t come in to relive his middle school football glory days just as I was getting ready to write. I only got to work for 45 minutes so I didn’t get my very attainable goal. 😦

Gil groaned but accepted his fate with as much grace as his growling stomach could muster. Tarvek was less tolerant of the situation as he got up, shoving his chair back with a screech and grabbing his stack of papers rather violently.

“Show the boys to the library, please,” the Prince said to one of the guards then went back to discussing something with the Baron.

Tarvek stomped off ahead of Gil giving him a great view of the pretty floral pattern now inked into his expensive trousers. Several other servants, including Arabeth, giggled as he walked by but none pointed out the problem so Gil kept his mouth shut.

This time he managed to keep track of their path to a large, functionary library–two lefts, across a courtyard, a right and down a flight of stairs–as they walked.

The Baron’s eyebrows shot up while the corner of his mouth twitched. He tapped his cheek until Tarvek frowned then touched his own mouth, his fingers coming away greasy.

“Tarvek, what is on your face?” the Prince said suddenly. “Go wash up before anyone sees you like this.”

“Yes, Father.” Tarvek trudged out of the room, head down.

Gil’s mouth tightened into a thin line at the mention of Tarvek and the day before like he could forget even after being drugged which was something he was not going to mention to his father like ever.

“The apprentice position is a learning experience more than anything and one of the most important lessons you must learn in politics is dealing with people you find absolutely reprehensible.”

Well, he knew Tarvek well enough; Gil only nodded and sipped his coffee.

“Leading is about more than control-”

“Leading isn’t about control at all,” Gil said suddenly, surprising them both. He groaned inwardly–obviously, he was still feeling the effects of the drugs because never in a million years would he interrupt his father like that and definitely not with something so obviously confrontational.
