Elspeth’s big sister stare unnerved me. As if Mentor wasn’t enough. “What?” I muttered.
“Can’t you do something about the media? They’re relentless.”
“They have glommed on to M, that’s for sure.”
“Humph,” Elspeth huffed. “As if she belongs to them.”
“But, don’t you see. It suits my purpose. I need my Little Soldier to be the subject of endless speculation. The more they talk about her, the more I—”
Elspeth’s eyebrows rose.
“Sorry, the more M and I will be able to accomplish.” Sometimes I thought it would be so much easier if I could go down there myself and slam a few heads together.
“Oh, look. There she is.”
M staggered to her car carrying two heavy boxes. She stumbled and fell. Papers flew out of the boxes and scattered in the wind. “Damn it!” Tears ran down her face. She pushed herself to a sitting position in the snow. “Damn it!” She watched the papers, some flying high in the sky, others plastered to the school ground fence. “Fuck!”
“Yves, do something.”
“Nothing I can do.” I felt like a heel. I could protect her from the Spinda, but I couldn’t even pick up one little piece of paper for her.
M slumped in the snow and cried.
I closed the earth view and leaned my head wearily against the back of the chair.
“Yves?”
I waved Elspeth away. Her caring and concern, her censure and fretting were too much. She tiptoed out of the alcove.
I blinked M back. She was still sitting in the snow. Still crying, and unaware that she was speaking Pashto. What had I done to her? Could I protect her from herself?
