>RETURN TO THE DARKNESS FROM WHENCE WE CAME


~

Back at the house, you open the door and step inside.

It's about 6:30 now, so Ellen should be here in half an hour.

Bezel isn't hanging around on the bottom floor, so you head upstairs and peek past the open door of her room, where you see her lying in bed, staring at the ceiling.

Bezel: "Hey."

She points to the nearby nightstand, where a messenger bag is sitting.

You OBSERVE the bag and its contents.

A greyish faux-leather bag, the lack of threads at the seems and the clean edges probably means it's HM - enhancing the detail of the material shows that it looks - well, you don't actually know what leather looks like up close, so this doesn't tell you much.

The bag itself isn't the important part here. Inside are assorted folders, papers, pamphlets, and a small booklet.

The papers - a student loan statement of approval, Vellum citizenship forms, and class listings for the Castellum II Academy of Magic. Pamphlets describe various academy policies and campus information, while the small booklet is the official form of ID for Vellum citizens.

"...You got a sponsorship? Nice!

So. I imagine that means you'll be staying in Vellum for a while."

Bezel: "Among the papers that the academy official left for us, there was an envelope addressed to me, with a short letter telling me to meet someone at a park.

It was Kamilla.

She said she would provide a recommendation to get me into the academy, if she thought my HM was worthwhile."

”It was... Inconclusive. Oliver’s theory was right - The ship is a front, there’s a box with a different nameplate in the empty cargo bay. Now we’ve got to determine if the other ship is even real, and if it is, where they’re keeping it.

The Rose leaves port for too short a period to go anywhere far. Either they’re loading cargo from somewhere very close along the coast, or from another vessel.


I was pretty satisfied with my, uh, eyesight, though. No signs of nausea or dizziness anymore.”

Bezel: "Sounds like you're adapting to it pretty quickly. Guess you'll be doing your primary search after we return to Darson and then come back here?"
