1558 words. Chapter 5, scene 1 complete. Margaurethe's mother pays a surprise visit. No love lost between Mum and Jenna's predecessor. Margaurethe's idea to use Rufus Barret's painting of Jenna – sullen tattooed streetkid – to intimidate the arriving council has backfired. Now Mum thinks Jenna and Elisibet the Tyrannos are way too similar.
Oh, and I discovered that Margaurethe's father, Tireachan O'Toole, is closely affiliated with none other than Symboulos Bertrada Nijmege. She's the one who wants to murder Jenna with her bare hands.
Family and politics. Gotta love 'em!
