I come out from behind the counter and guide the crying girl to a seat. I pat her shoulder and speak softly.
"There, there, it's ok. We'll rescue him. Do you want something to eat while me and my friend go get Badcop?"
The girl nods slightly and continues to sob. "I should've stayed with him, I shouldn't have put him in danger by insisting we split up. And now he's been zapped!" She bursts into fresh tears and I back her back, murmuring "There, there."
I step behind the counter and get the girl a cup of tea and some tea sandwiches. I put them in front of her, on the table and then hurry down the steps to where Honeyfeather was arranging her room.
"Honeyfeather, come quick! Stop what your doing and come with me, we need to rescue someone!"
