Little Mouse [Woky]

There was more weird about Majima than his clothes. Norell had been asking questions and she'd been watching. She'd learned about the green weyrling he'd hurt, the man he'd allegedly killed and the Weyrleader's supposed role in the cover-up. She'd heard of the former wherleader's suspicions of him that he was never quite able to prove. She knew Majima associated with odd people and that if anyone knew what he did with most of his days, they wouldn't tell Norell. Sometimes, when Norell asked questions, she had the distinct sense she was being watched and listened to a little too closely. Which only confirmed that she was on to something.

Norell knew how weyrfolk behaved. She'd been studying it from the moment she was carried into Fort Weyr five turns ago. She understood the patterns and habits they took for granted, because there was no other way to imitate them. So she knew Majima didn't fit. He didn't even bother to try to pretend.

Majima had been able to steal dragon eggs from the heart of Fort Weyr, hide them from Fort's wings and squads and assemble an unofficial squadron of clearly trained soldiers to guard them. There was something more going on here than just one man being weird. Whatever Majima was doing- it was something big.

And Norell intended to find out what. He had ruined her life and she was going to ruin his. But she wasn't going to make the same mistakes T'ir had. Before she accused Majima of anything, she needed proof.

Norell had been keeping track of the squads' training times. She knew his squad had practice. It was the perfect moment.

Norell tiptoed quietly about the wherhandler barracks, glow raised against the darkness as she cracked open Majima's door.

Unfortunately for Norell, Majima was never really one for drills and training.

Intruder. Majimask warned him, and the man sighed as they came down the hall. His footfalls changed, becoming lighter, not matching his normal gait. Majimask mirrored his actions, the two of them having done this for a very, very long time. Someone was clearly trying to find something about him, and he was not about to let something like this go unpunished.

In his room, there was nothing to give away his dealings. He was far too smart to leave evidence.

The room was empty. Its basic layout was familiar, similar to Norell's mother's back at Fort. There was nothing obviously incriminating laying in plain sight, which made sense. There were too many wherhandlers in close quarters here to risk leaving something where any accidental visitor could spot it.

Keep watch, Ramala, Norell ordered the green firelizard silently, words reinforced by emotion and mental images. Ramala sent back a wave of wordless assent as she hovered by the door, waiting and watching, ready to send warning and, if necessary, to attack. She had been with Norell for nearly five turns now and the two had as much of an understanding as the firelizard was capable of.

Norell wrinkled her nose as she approached Majima's bed. A lot of the boys back at Fort hid things under their mattress. Maybe Majima did too? This was going to be gross. Norell hoped there wasn't a rotting body down there.

Go get the door.

Majimask snorted, picking up the pace before thundering down the hall. He came to a stop, blocking the doorway with his entire body. And he growled, loudly. There was an intruder, and he was not going to let them go.

Majima, however, took his sweet time. He whistled, sauntering down the hall to his quarters.

"Well, it seems like someone is trespassing. I guess we're going to have to have words, aren't we?" He kicked himself up onto his wher's back, looming from the doorway.

Ramala let a squawk and dove at Majima's eyes. Norell let the mattress drop back onto the bed frame.

Because Norell wasn't a hero, she didn't spout any nonsense about how Majima would pay for what he had done. She didn't tell him she knew he was more than he seemed. She didn't try to engage in conversation. She didn't even try to run, because whers were faster than people.

Instead, she let out her loudest, shrillest scream and gave Ramala a silent order to pop between as soon as Majima swatted and find someone to lead back here. Because this was a weyr and there were always people nearby. If Majima killed her, she was going to make forsking sure somebody found the body.

Nobody was powerful enough to get away with murder in the middle of the weyr. Whatever deal he had with High Reaches' leaders, Norell was willing to bet they valued their legitimacy more.

"And what are you lookin' for, little lady?"

As if he didn't know.

Majima wasn't stupid. He got exactly what he wanted, really. The seeds had been sewn and High Reaches had been overturned. And he really wasn't looking to end any more lives. Just a lesson that needed to be taught. He slid over Majimask, stepping towards Norell.

"It'll go much easier if you tell the truth."

Norell wasn't stupid either. It wasn't a real question. He knew what she was looking for and he wasn't going to let her go just because she told the truth.

"Ramala knows where I am and someone probably heard me scream. Even if you get rid of the corpse on time, the whers will still be able to smell the blood," Norell said as calmly as she could. If Norell was going to die, she would bring Majima down with her. She'd rather not die.

But right now, he had power and she didn't. It didn't matter what she wanted. He was bigger and he was stronger. He had a wher and an army of allies.

Someday, Norell would have a dragon and she wouldn't have to scheme and plot and hide. Dragons were bigger and stronger than any man. Dragons were power and power was protection. Norell just had to survive until then.

Oh, so she thought she was still going to play with the big boys. Majima chuckled, shaking his head as he slowly stepped forwards.

"Killin' you wouldn't teach you a lesson, and you're about to learn an important one."

Majimask barred the door, and Majima's hand snapped out, grabbing Norell's wrist. His grip was like iron, and his eye flashed with the very sort of crazy nature that he was infamous for. Lessons needed to be taught. Manners needed to be learned.

"No, we do this the easy way, and it'll go nice and smooth. You'll heal fine." He gripped her pinky finger in his free hand, and there was no mistaking what he was going to do. "Kick up a fuss, and you won't be standin' for any clutch ever. So, what'll it be?"
