The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators for posting.

This weeks chapters open with the Guard Captain being struck by lightning and killed by the Amulets. The regular escort is quickly returned, and they set off for the final leg of the journey to Korat.

Arriving there in the late afternoon, they do not enter the city but go directly to the Governor's residence outside of it. They meet the Governor there, but explanations of what happened are put off until later.

Mike and Chanthra return to the city and locate a suitable hotel. At breakfast the next morning, they are approached by a woman sent by the Amulets with a house to rent. They check out the house and find it suitable.

That afternoon they visit Wat Sala Loy to pay their respects to the spirit of Thao Suranaree, Lady Mo. On returning to the hotel, they are met by the Sergeant from Sousri's guard. The Governor has sent him to find them.

At the Governor's office, there are explanations of what happened on the trip. On the way back to the hotel, Chanthra stops to purchase things for the house. The Amulets have a surprise for them when they return to hotel.

In the morning, as they approach the house, they find a young woman there waiting to apply for the position of house girl.

I hope that you have enjoyed the previous chapters, and will find these enjoyable also. More next week.

Keep Well,
