Well, he hasn't been let in on _all_ the details, now has he? :)

Mm. Makes Lewko wonder about Ingrey a little. I think his not telling Hetwar
really is out of character - that's why I rather liked Hetwar (while he was
off-stage) in the first place. Well, one of the reasons.

Hallana - the one and only. I think herself liked Hallana even better than
Ista (and Ista was plenty god-touched - the Mother, the dratsaB, the
Father...) :)

Oh yes. But I think Ingrey is not so very safe anymore either. I like the
description that is coming, in Ingrey's inner eye, about what the situation
may be if Ijada _was_ hanged...

I think he turned odd _after_ his father died, _before_ his mother died.
(his, in both cases, being Wencel). Just my impression.

I did get the impression that it was Cumril who told Lewko about Wencel...
not Ingrey. I _may_ have been wrong.

Lewko is -not- happy about more complications, especially not if it involves

Mm. But I don't think it would have helped him, somehow... All things

You have two hands. One to help yourself and one to help others.
