Posted by Beryl Strifeclaw on July 21, 2016 at 6:12am

  Cyan was waiting in the alley, his urchin friends and Baird guarding the entrances and exits while he stood in a dead end in the twisting back alleys.  It was dark, but he could see with his weak lamp when held high.  His shadow danced on the wall beside him as he waited with growing anxiety.  Neither Rayn nor Beryl had returned and the clocks of the city finished ringing the final stroke of midnight.

Mr Firecrest stumbled through the
