“Well, we’re not in their kinship network, so to put it bluntly, we’re not really people to them. And there are some who say we don’t belong here at all.” Genubi made a sour face. “Some of them think things ought to just come to them because of their name, which isn’t at all what the whole clan-prestige thing means in the first place, but hey, theory and practice.”

“So what happened?” Jehen asked. Clearly something had.

“Someone gave Shamali a drugged drink,” Genubi said. “And luckily I was there, and had been drinking from my own canteen, because thank you no, I don’t drink with my enemies. And Mavra did teach us a thing or two, so somebody was at the infirmary next day with a broken wrist.”
