A long, relaxed week had passed after the resolution of the conflict with Nerifes. Senel and Shirley were staying at Will's house, as they did not have anywhere else to go for the moment. Norma was continuing to live under still-being-negotiated rates at the Dreaming Traveler. Moses was happily loafing around with Giet and his gang of bandits, Chloe was boarding at the hospital, Grune was staying at Will's as well, if only to tend to his suspiciously growing garden, and Jay, true to his nature, was not at a known location, but easily reachable if needed. Everyone was lying low, contemplating what they should do now that peace had been attained. Shirley needed to stay on the Legacy; she was the ambassador between the Ferines and Orerines, and Senel didn't want to leave her side. Norma was going on and on about treasure hunting, while Will was going on and on about rare monster hunting. Chloe was contemplating returning to the mainland, but Grune wanted to stay with the ever-growing gard

"Awrite, where is this mysterious person?" Moses asked skeptically; he had resigned his brain to thinking deeper into things, if only to piss Jay off, and maybe, miraculously, prove him wrong for once.
"You doubt us?" Quppo asked boldly, "She's upstairs, in Jay's room."
"Sorry, but we had nowhere else," Pippo added quickly to Jay, who shook his head, indicating that it was no big deal. He then started up the stairs, finally about to settle this matter for the Oresoren.
The door creaked open slowly and silently as Jay entered, then was rudely and loudly slammed as Moses burst in. The party looked around the round room as they walked in, and discovered a strange detail: besides them, there seemed to be no one there.
"See, I told y'all, there ain't no mysterious person!" Moses yelled triumphantly. He was turning to
Jay to give the younger boy a special dosage, but realized that Jay was walking over to a spot in the room, and bent over, saying "Here you are".
Jay had sensed her presence wh

"Hey," Norma said to their mysterious companion, "what's your name?"
She had formed a group of all of the girls in the house, so that six girls were huddled in a corner of the living room. Harriet had joined in because she did not want to be anywhere else, mostly because Will was on the couch. He was talking to Senel about something; what it was did not matter, the fact that Will was there did to Harriet. On the couch opposite Will and Senel, Moses was trying to inch closer to Jay, who was moving away from Moses, so that every inch he gained was immediately lost. Moses' reasons behind his behavior were nearly the same reason as Norma's to create a group. In a case of Norma and Moses creating a truce for what they saw as a greater good, the two had decided to see what was up between the new girl and Jay; it was obvious that something was going on, at least on the girl's part. The interrogation of Jay was a measure taken to be thorough. Norma's interrogation, however, was the basis of th

Later that morning, the group walked out of Werites Beacon. They went straight towards the duct, where they would go to the far shore of Raging Bay, where the sole entrance to the Bridge Plain was. The girl, who walked silently among them once again, had only been traveling with them for a mere day, but already they felt as though she was meant to be one of the group.
At long last, the party could see the Crags looming in the distance. That was their landmark, which indicated that they need to turn east in order to go through the Bridge Plain. They stopped at this crucial turning point to rest before heading towards the Bridge. As Jay finished cooking the afternoon meal, stew, the girl, to their surprise, stood.
"I am sorry, but here is where we must part," she announced. Everyone looked at her, shocked.
"But why now? We're almost to the Bridge," Senel protested.
"Even if you started now, you wouldn't get too much farther ahead of us," Will reasoned, supporting Senel's protest.
