Imrainai figures that, as in all stories, there are many many many things that happened before it was time for the main action of this one to begin. Probably Parael learned something; ancestors know who she learned it from. What Imrainai knows, though, is that Parael finds her in the main work crew living quarters one day, at the tail end of a story. She has a favor to ask. Before Imrainai can ask what it is, Parael has presented her with a piece of paper. At first she thinks it's the stuff they have on Earth, but no, it's a surface made from lots of tiny medication slips glued together.
She also has a pen. A real one, not a piece of plastic with printer toner on it.
"I need a circle with some words inside. I would draw it but I can't actually see. And the material's fragile, I don't want to tear it."
She doesn't know what this is for and kind of wants to get Mathrael to see if it's OK - nobody on this ship has said they can't have paper, but it's best not to do anything that might later be counted as troublemaking. Mathrael is on a shift right now, though, and Parael seems very serious about this.
She painstakingly writes out the words I summon a demon, in Confederate One, over the course of a couple minutes. Some of the children cluster around her to stare. She draws a circle around her words.
