Tiger, Tiger – Part eighty eight

Lilavati didn’t want to fight her mother. Lilavati didn’t even remember Upsana and now this was the fate the Twelve had forced upon them. The two tiikeri snarled and moved towards her, each coming in from a different angle. Lilavati didn’t know what to do. She was unarmed, with no defender to aid her. She felt […]

More spirits of those who died in her service appeared. The last to arrive was Vera, the arrow still sticking out of her chest. “I do not regret taking your life,” Lilavati said. “I never will.

Tiger, Tiger – Part eighty four

Ludger and Dieter arrived at the same time, both men with their breakfasts. The servant returned with the other food. “Ludger, please check this food for poison,” Lilavati said.

Manas seemed even more confused. “Katali, I have been human again for less than a quarter of an hour. Could you perhaps explain your thoughts before we send for anyone else?” Lilavati blinked. She felt her face grow warm. “I sometimes forget what I articulate in my dreams I have not yet spoken aloud,” she […]

Tiger, Tiger – Part eighty two

Lilavati rose to her feet. Her tiikeri roused and imbued her with all of its power. She didn’t let her fear dominate her. “Lay down, Manas. Let me see your wound,” she commanded, her voice ringing in the tent. Manas snarled, stalking forward. Her tiikeri increased her strength. “I said lay down.” Manas shook off the control […]
