BUT TIME DULLED THEIR FEAR AND SOON, AWE REPLACED IT, FOR IT WAS HE WHO SET ROAN OF LONGLIGHT ON THE PATH TO ILLUMINATION.
—ORIN’S HISTORY OF THE FRIEND ROAN QUIETLY STEPS INTO ONE OF THE SMALLER ROO
...MS of the Academy. Mabatan chose well. Lumpy’s new quarters are spare but practical, with a desk and room for books, one of which he’s poring over now.
Looking up at Roan guiltily, Lumpy sighs. “Lying here’s nice but there’s a ton of things I should be helping with.”
“Nothing that can’t wait a couple of days,” says Roan, wagging a cautionary finger. “You got off lucky. Imin told me that if that fragment had hit you a thumb’s width to the left, you’d have died.”
“Funny how luck can feel like a big pain in your gut. Umm…speaking of pain, how’s Ende?”
“Very quiet.”
“Do you know how the Apogee killed them? Could you see?” Lumpy shifts in his bed, wincing at the movement.
Roan steps forward awkwardly, not quite knowing how to offer his friend assistance, but Lumpy waves him back.
