14 the theory

Safekeeping

“Rightfully.  Legally.  Laila inherited her position,” Shaan had whispered.  “But the majority of seats on the Council are held by military.”

“Not given to having a woman in charge.  Telling them what to do.  Macho pride and all that  ….  Having a female shoving her weight around.”
Shaan had hesitated.  “Unless it’s a woman they can control.”

Ka-Lan, in truth, couldn’t verify that.  His role had been on the side-lines.  In private, in her bed.
“Then up struts some cocky outsider.  Gets the Lady-President on her feet again.  She starts pushing her weight around.”

Ka-Lan was beginning to feel a shiver.  This theory could be horribly close to the truth.
“Wasn’t it so much better  ..  before?  When the Lady-President was pliable?”  Shaan snorted.  Contempt for arch-political-animals.
“Wouldn’t it be better to get back to that again?”
