May 2002... Mpuzi slipped silently into the room, bowing to Mkora's turned back, as Casondra and Elaina followed. He was standing perfectly straight, hands folded behind his back, looking absently out the window. Elaina could sense he was tired, bored, and very annoyed. He didn't even turn around when he heard them come in. 'I told you to admit no one, Mpuzi.' The servant cringed, saying in the most submissive voice, 'This Lady brought a gift for you, and was very insistant, please, forgive me, Master.' Mkora sighed again. Casondra wet her lips, taking a deep breath. 'I would not be denied,' she said in a commanding voice, taking a step forward. Mpuzi immediatly spun around, striking Casondra hard acorss the mouth, making her half stumble a step backwards and raise a hand to her bloodied lip. 'Know your PLACE woman!' Elaina tore her eyes from her injured daughter for a moment to look at her husband. Mkora had tensed faintly at Casondra's voice, but had stopped himself from turning around. Quickly, he made his way around what he had said, half glancing over his shoulder at his daughter, his wife, and his servant. 'Leave us, Mpuzi, that I may deal with girl. See to it I am /not/ disturbed this time.' I'm very happy with this, even though my scanner made it look like the world is tilted. I also had to cut out a bunch as it took up the whole sketchbook page. as always, excerpted from Sinlahekin.
