Utena emerged from the bedroom a minute or two later, togged out
in one of her jacket-and-tie rigs (having felt that the occasion called
for a dressier touch), to find Corwin... well, she wasn't really sure
-what- he was doing. He and Annabelle appeared to be in the process of
losing an argument with several yards of red silk.
"Well -that- can't be right because now I can't see," Corwin
muttered, unwinding a coil of fabric he apparently had expected to
settle somewhere other than around the top of his head. "I don't - hang
on. No... "
"What are you doing?" Utena wondered, unable to keep from
giggling at the look of comical bemusement on his face.
"This is evidently supposed to be configurable as some kind of
baby-carrying device," Corwin said, momentarily losing one of his hands
into an unexpected fold. "I can only assume," he added, turning
completely around, "that it's intended to be set up by someone with four
arms. Maybe Avatar Yangchen invented it."
"I see," said Utena, folding her arms with a smile and watching
"This is just a piece of cloth," Corwin remarked a fruitless
minute or so later, sounding slightly desperate.
"Yes," Utena agreed.
"It doesn't have any buckles... it doesn't have moving parts of
-any kind,-" Corwin went on.
"No," Utena agreed.
"It -can't- be this hard." Corwin winced a little as Annabelle,
slightly caught in a twist of silk, made a mild noise of protest.
Utena, unable to help herself, started giggling again. "Yes,
yes it can," she observed.
Corwin mock-glared at her. "Stop laughing and come help untie
me before I drop her."
Utena complied, still giggling. "How did you get into this
predicament in the first place?"
"Anthy asked if I wanted to carry her on the flight out. I
don't know, it seemed simple. Maybe you should try it."
"Ohhh no, not without expert help I don't," Utena said,
unwinding the cloth from around his middle. "If the Norse God of Mecha
can't make this work without help, I'm not dumb enough to try it by
"This isn't mecha, this is a textile," Corwin protested. "Well
outside my field. Although I -will- build a baby-carrying robot if I
have to." He tugged his free arm out of a loop. "I swear they must
airbend this on."
"We don't, as a general rule," said Jinora from the door, "but
it does help sometimes. Would you like assistance?"
Corwin rolled his eyes at the once-again-giggling Utena, who
said, "Yes please. I believe we will stop and ask for directions now."
