Part 5

-4-

Her belongings were gone! At the same instant T’li’s mind registered this, some elusive sense caught the retreating presence of an intruder just beyond the doorway. Caught in a moment’s hesitation, she checked again for her belongings . . . but a cursory glance told her what she already knew- that they were indeed gone!

At once, her heart was seized by a fey, black mood, a burning anger and sickened feeling towards the perverse, petty mind that had enacted this last parting cruelty. Two long years of being baited and looked down upon by her fellows; two long years of enduring Otar’s citizens’ black charity despite Rhian’s attempts to shield her; two long years of having her nose rubbed in the contempt of her own people towards Woren County’s women in military service; two long years of black, bleak waiting, while her young heart withered and the light in her eyes began to fade: this may explain why she pushed all caution aside and chose pursuit. She had been hurt, again and again and again! Well, she was not about to suffer the lifelong hurt and humiliation of having her personal belongings and some very old family heirlooms and keepsakes taken from her! Not today, and not without a fight!
