Rick reveled in the stories he heard meanwhile of the Fifth Cycle who was struck down in the Practice Ring by ArmsMaster Milvern. Apparently Getchwick had woken in time to see a Healer, but not enough time for quick-healing to take place before Weaponry Class.
He’d had no way to go after his Sixth Cycle adversaries, for he had no information on them and he didn’t want to be caught lurking in the Sixth/Seventh Cycle Hall. The bruises on their fists, if they’d acquired any, had healed by now, and so Rick remained frustrated. He would have to keep a very close watch on Emanuella and see if any students gave themselves away.
