Wednesday Briefs #17: Growth, Part 15: Ghalib’s Decision, Part 5

Ghalib’s Decision, Part 5 In which Ghalib is embarrassed, Bathasar is comic relief and Teman runs interference… He blushed at the thought. But when he’d been in the slaves’ wing a short while before, no one had seemed to even make an issue out of being naked and he wondered if he wouldn’t simply get […]

Wednesday Briefs #16: Growth, Part 14: Ghalib’s Decision, Part 4

Ghalib’s Decision, Part 4 In which Ghalib is embarrassed, Bathasar is comic relief and Teman runs interference… His heart started pounding at the thought. He’d certainly contemplated it often enough when he’d been alone at night, asleep on his pallet in the room he shared with the other male servants. He’d wondered what it would […]

Wednesday Briefs #15: Growth, Part 13: Ghalib’s Decision, Part 3

Ghalib’s Decision, Part 3 In which Ghalib is confused even further… “I want you to talk to someone for a few moments. If what I suspect is correct, he will know and then I may be able to help you.” “Help me?” Ghalib shook his head, still lost. “Yes. But don’t worry.” Teman smiled at […]

Wednesday Briefs #14: Growth, Part 12: Ghalib’s Decision, Part 2

Ghalib’s Decision, Part 2 Poor, poor, Ghalib. I feel so sorry for him. (No, really, I do! For now… 😉 ) Ghalib spit it out before he could change his mind. “Important to someone.” Teman glanced over his shoulder and raised an eyebrow. “I can see that.” Ghalib frowned. “Qadi Adel finally convinced me to […]

Wednesday Briefs #13: Growth, Part 11: Ghalib’s Decision, part 1

Ghalib’s Decision, part 1 And now that we have so thorough confused Adel, we take you back to your previously scheduled programming and take a peek at Ghali. Ghalib approached the malik’s chambers and paused in front of the guards. “Hello, Ghalib!” The one on the left greeted him. Ghalib smiled. “Good evening, Shahid. How are […]

Wednesday Briefs #12: Growth, Part 10: Adel, Part 5

Adel, Part 5 In which Adel’s brain is given more food for thought than he can digest just yet. But it’s all good. He’s getting there. “That’s alright. We can’t always untangle it, ourselves.” Adel blinked at him. “Excuse me?” Bathasar chuckled. “Indeed. Even Teman and Nadir care for each other as more than friends […]

Wednesday Briefs #11: Growth, Part 9: Adel, Part 4

Adel, Part 4 In which Adel’s brain is broken completely by Bathasar, Teman and Nadir. It took him a few days to get time, but finally on the third evening, he sat in a chair opposite Bathasar in front of the malik’s fire, sipping wine. “Tell me what is on your mind, my friend,” Bathasar […]

Wednesday Briefs #10: Growth, Part 8: Adel, Part 3

Adel, Part 3 I’m *almost* sorry I kept you waiting for a whole week. Almost. Not really. 😉 Ghalib considered him for a long time without speaking. Adel let the silence sit giving Ghalib the chance to work it out. Finally, with a sigh, Ghalib spoke. “As you are aware, I am a servant here […]

Adel, Part 2 We pick up with Adel again, and he and Ghalib meet for the second time. Oh, you poor, poor boys. Not really. 😉 He was so lost in thought, he almost missed the door opening. But the click was loud enough to pull him back and he turned to see the very […]

Wednesday Briefs #8: Growth, Part 6: Adel, Part 1

Adel, Part 1 And we have the next Wednesday Brief in which we finally get into Adel’s head. He proved a little stubborn, but I’m pretty happy with where he’s going.  Adel couldn’t decide if he was amused, annoyed or… impressed. Ghalib had managed to evade him for more than a week. His room had […]
