A double-crack alternate universe in which Leo gets an army and then takes over the northwest.
It was possible, Cya admitted, that Leo was getting a little bit carried away.
She watched him in front of his army; she watched him in front of his newly-conquered cities and villages and small states. He was soaking it in, reveling in it; he was glowing with the power and the pleasure of their worship.
She watched as he seemed to get taller, as his antlers seemed to get wider. He wasn’t growing, but his image was. They doted on him; they loved him. They praised him and expected him to fix their problems.
It was more than a little possible that he was becoming a god.
It was nearly certain that she ought to stop him. The Council would notice. Addergoole would notice.
She stepped up behind him and began the paperwork and bureaucracy of bringing another town under the Cloverleaf banner.
She wasn’t going to stop him yet.
