A Domani. ” The fool sounded admiring! “Not a mutiny. A raid on a grand scale. ” Dragonsworn. The word was like a fist clutching Suroth’s throat. ” Galgan grimaced and made a sign against evil, apparently unconscious of doing so. ” Red-hot anger needed to erupt at Galgan, but screaming at another of the High Blood would lower her eyes. And, as bad, gain nothing. Still, it had to be directed somewhere. It had to come out. She was proud of what she had done in Tarabon, and now the country appeared to be halfway back to the chaos she found when she first landed there.
But even the servants knew. Silent tears of humiliation began to stream down her cheeks. She wanted to kill Silviana, yet that would only mean a new Mistress of Novices laying the strap across her every morning until Elaida relented. Except that Elaida would never relent.
