The Night Prince - Chapter 14Chapter Fourteen
In Which John and Margaret Reveal Their Plans For Lucia

The rosy-cheeked maid was marching along, swinging some small object in her hand. Upon noticing Lucia, Margaret raised her other hand over her head and waved in a broad display of cheerful - if exuberant - greeting.
Margaret dashed up the rest of the way, huffing puffs of dragon smoke. The bottom of her dress and apron fluttered in waves as she ran.

The Night Prince Chapter 13Chapter Thirteen
In Which Lucia Tends To Three Horses
The morning was as clear and cold as freshly drawn well water. A slight frost bristled on the grass, making it crunch underfoot as John and Lucia circled the mansion. It was the first day of the year that one could see one's own breath, and the two traipsed along creating dragons' mists. Lucia felt at peace in the daylight.

HelicaseHelio and I were always sitting on the stairs, chatting about the lamina and occasionally making snide remarks about ribosomes. There wasn't much for us to do. Our job was to simply be, and let the RNA scribble down the letters on our foreheads when they came around every once in a while. Helio was a G, I was a C. It wasn't exactly fulfilling, I suppose. There wasn't much to be filled. So to pass the time, we talked.
"You ever wonder?" Helio asked.
"About...well...what's out there." Helio and I were rooted to the stairs, quite happily, but it was awkward to move in. He kind of twisted in the general direction of the closest pore. "Out in the cytoplasm."
"I haven't," I admitted. "What's there to wonder about?"
"That's exactly the thing. I have no idea." Helio sighed, gazing into the distance. "Somehow it feels like we play this huge, huge role in something important, but how can we when we don't even know what that something is? I want to be something that, that has
