Location: Green Shade Caverns
I sat down on the front porch of my house that was built into the cliff near the stream that runs out of Forgotten Green Shade Caverns and sipped tea. I was just sitting there when Hanna Brassheart walked up.
“Hey Hanna!” I called.
“Hello.” Hanna said, her face was grim.
“Um, won’t you come inside and sit down? You look like you have something serious to tell me.” I suggested.
“Oh no, here is fine. Emily-“ She sat down next to me, “Well, this what I need to tell you: Hans Oddcraft is in Evercity, he’s seeing Lucky himself at 10:00 tomorrow morning! What do we do?”
“Wait...the Hans Oddcraft who was in the plan to burn Evergreen Meadows?”
“And The Hans Oddcraft who made the Boomlands?”
“And the Hans Oddcraft who got banished for trying to throw Lucky into solitary confinement and take the throne!”
“The Hans Oddcraft who-“ I stopped.
“Who is your brother?” Hanna whispered. “Yes.”
A man, in fine clothes walked into a back ally and slipped into the shadows. Soon a women joined him...
“Have you got it?” The man asked.
“Yes, who do you take me for? A liar?” Said the women.
“Some would.” Responded the man.
“How dare you!”
“I do, but you can’t lay a finger on my because I have the law on my side, now hand it over.”
“What do you mean?”
“That’s stolen property right there.”
“Yeah, And you did a good job stealing it, considering you had trouble stealing fruit from the market undetected.”
“It’s true, I’ve been watching you.”
“Not personally I’m sure.”
“Your sarcasm will get you in trouble one day.”
“I’m not sarcastic.”
“Okay! Just stop.”
“1:00 tomorrow. Riley’s place, right?”
“I’ll be there.”
“Yeah right, see you then. Don’t be late.”
Location: The Grease Pits, Cell 472
“Please just stop hitting the door with that knife!” A man from the corner said. “It won’t work.”
Jacoby Elderfun put his knife back in his belt, hidden behind his cape.
“Sorry, I just need to get out of here!”
“Because I’m supposed to be delivering Aether-Bibles to some students at the Academy Automicus.” Jacoby answered. “Which is illegal...anyway I’m Jacoby Elderfun, Who are you?”
“I’m Kieran Candleview. I’m here because they caught me trying to steal a Experiment from the Labs.”
“The Labs! Aren’t those abandoned?”
“They were I guess, but not anymore.”
“I need to get out of this mud hole and find out what’s going on! You want out?” Jacoby asked.
“Of course I do.” Responded Kieran.
“Okay, I’ve been trying to unscrew the bolts on the door.”
“Let me help you.” Kieran took the knife and tried to turn the bolt.
“It’s...its...turning!” He exclaimed.
They got all the bolts out and took off down the hall.
“I need the Aether-Bibles. I think there hidden somewhere!” Jacoby said.
“Let’s try in here!” Kieran called. Jacoby ran up.
“An office! They could be in here. I’ll just pick the lock.”
“No need, it open.” Kieran said pushing open the door.
“Great, come on.” Jacoby said rushing in. They searched the room, then Jacoby found them.
“Here! There in this cupboard!” He pulled the Aether-Bibles out and put them in a bag. “Now, Let’s get outta here!”
They ran out of the Grease Pits into the Northern Slurries.
“Not frozen today.” Said Kieran. They stated walking.
“So Kieran,” Said Jacoby, “Are you part of the Resistance?”
“Nope, I’ve heard of it though. I’ve never been interested in joining.” Answered Kieran.
“You should join! It’s exciting. Plus you get to work for the Scarlet Man!” Jacoby told him.
“The Scarlet Man?” Questioned Kieran.
“Shh, we’re at the border crossing.” Jacoby said quietly.
“What about those books? Who are you going to get them across?” Asked Kieran.
“Look, the check point is built over a river. The river is frozen, so while you go across and keep them occupied, I’ll slide the bag across the river, then join you. Got it?”
“Got it, let’s go!”
