[RUMOR] Assassination

To one side of the cliffs, weyr caves built into the rock gaze out over a warm, sandy desert; on the other, caves can look upon the lush but dangerous treetops of the jungle below. Either way, home is where the heart is.

[RUMOR] Assassination

So...did Benden kill Al'une? He looked fine when he flew out and everybody knows they hated him! We must answer this aggression from the north! They can't be allowed to just kill any rider that irritates them!

"He was fine before, what else could it be?" Unay's eyes were still red from crying. Ordinarily that would have bothered her, but just then she didn't care. A part of her wanted to find Alayna, because she doubted her sister was taking the news well, but...

But the bigger, less sensible part of her was checking over her straps. Benden wanted to kill her brother? She'd see him avenged, and since nobody else at Semaca cared to do anything about their continued existence, then she'd do it herself.

"It could be Alayna next time. I won't let there be a next time."

"Benden was toppled already," Rin reminded her favorite clutchmate. She couldn't imagine losing her twin like that, so she didn't want to be too rough with Unay. But she knew how easily Unay could be worked up, particularly against Benden, and it wouldn't do her any favors to get to that point.

"Accidents happen. You know that." Not that checking and double checking straps was a bad thing, Rin knew that. She wanted to request thicker straps that wouldn't bite so much when they had to hold her whole weight. That was reasonable. The determined look in Unay's still-red eyes? Less so.

"No, Benden still stands. Temporarily displacing those who were in power clearly did nothing, which was the obvious outcome from the start."

But nobody had listened to her. Even Alayna had thought that cess pool of a Weyr could change. Well obviously they hadn't, and probably couldn't. They'd have to want to, and why would tyrants and those who blindly accepted them want to go against the status quo?

"Sure, accidents happen. But healthy riders don't just... die for no reason. And Benden's hardly opposed to poison."

Benden had drugged Alayna once. A few drops of fellis in her food and she'd been theirs. She might never have seen the sky again or thought with a clear mind.

Dragons could go anywhere. Semaca didn't need to watch for people most days. There was no one else out here. It would have been easy for someone to have slipped in.

Much as Alayna didn't want to think it...it was possible Benden had killed Al'une.

She still wasn't going to let Unay do this, "Don't, Unay. You can't fight an entire weyr. You know that. Al'une wouldn't have wanted this."
