Yup, its more of the stuff thats cut my site traffic in half....Bookblogging!

Chapter 7- Medra is sitting in class listening to Matron Mareth prattle on. (Medra is a matron at the Betrothal Academy, an institution that arranges marriages amongst nobles for maximum political benefit) After class she and her best friend Samenth head to the Quad tavern for a drink. There, off duty Home Guards eagerly buy them drinks and they discuss all the knights and lords who will be coming to court. Samenth wants to seduce one or two of the married ones then blackmail them. Medra thinks thats repulsive, she just accepts lavish gifts. Samenth asks a lieutenant to walk them back to their apartments. Once there he and Samenth go for a walk in the garden. The desk clerk informs Medra that Sir Wisten has been hanging around all day looking for her. Annoyed, Medra recruits him to give her a boost into her second story window out back. Inside she lounges around for awhile reads her mail and some new finanical reports. She hears a disturbance in the hall. Sir Wisten is drunk and accosting Samenth and lieutenant Mord. Wisten shoves Mord down the stairs breaking his leg. He breaks into Medras room and accuses her of deserting him. He attempts to rape her but she grabs a letter opener from the desk and stabs him in the throat killing him. The last thing she remembers is Samenth screaming (as it turns out, over Mords broken leg, she hasn't seen the corpse)

Man that chapter looked longer on paper.
