She looked on betas and azi with the disdain of her birth, which was natural, and her tedious lifespan, which was (since Lian's assassination) indefinite, and her power, which was among betas as fearsome as it was negligible where she would have desired to apply it. w. c bu to re he C lic k he k lic C w. 0 bu y rm er Y F T ra n sf o ABB PD er Y She had as her current interest Hal a Norn hant Ilit, a remote and seldom-social member of the House most involved in Meron's banking; she reckoned he might be a direct relative, and tried to jog his memory which of his kinsmen Morel a Sul Meth-maren had had for a lover, but he avowed it was several, and she went frustrated.

Perhaps they had some apprehension of trouble, having heard of the decimation of Kontrin Houses, and of blue-hive, and therefore feared to involve themselves in her affairs; but they had no means to refuge. She bought medical care, and drugs for the pain; she slept a time in a public lodging, and recovered herself. She bought clothing and weapons, and engaged a shuttle up to station, where she hired a ship with the credit of the Family-the most extravagant she could find.

The other azi's eyes followed the fall of the wands and the dice as if their own fortunes were hazarded there. The next evening the balance tilted again, forty to forty. _ iii Andra's Jewel jumped and made slow proms to Andra station. Ten grateful firstclass passengers disembarked and the Kontrin did not. The majority of lowerdeck passengers left; more arrived, short-termers, for Jim, and three first-class, bound for Meron.
