Chapter 21

Post by Freakzilla »

There exists a limit to the force even the most powerful may apply without
destroying themselves. Judging this limit is the true artistry of government.
Misuse of power is the fatal sin. The law cannot be a tool of vengeance, never a
hostage, nor a fortification against the martyrs it has created. You cannot
threaten any individual and escape the consequences.

-Muad'dib on Law, The Stilgar Commentary

Chani sits outside Seitch Tabr watching the sunrise. She considers the odd group Paul has brought with them, for her to give birth; Bijaz, Hayt, Edric, Mohiam, Lichna (Scytale), Stilgar, Harah, Irulan and Alia. Hayt brings her inside after warning herthat a storm is approaching. She starts having birth contractions and Hayt tries to rush her to her chambers and calls out for Harah to summon the medics. Hayt sense a feeling of panic for what may happen if Chani dies and Paul comes to him afterwards, he can't figure out why he has this feeling. He goes into mentat mode and figures out that Bijaz has rigged him with a compulsion to do something.
They were destroyed because they lied pretentiously. Have no fear that my wrath
will fall upon you because of your innocent mistakes.

~Leto II, God Emperor
