Lisa Fargazer was sitting in the Sneaky Vole, slowly making her way through one of the books Arnold had left for her, when she heard soft footfalls approaching. She looked up to see Arnold himself coming around the crates. “Hello, Arnold,” she said.
“Hello, Lisa,” he replied.
Canergak shouted for Arnold to stop Rasend, to bolt the doors quickly. He was the only one left in the creatures path, but Arnold ignored the order without hesitation. He grabbed Lo and ducked into Maddox’s office and was prepared to run for the iron cage inside to lock themselves within.
As they prepared to go, Erehwon was trying to dispel her nerves. All Maddox could think about was getting this over with. This was her mission and she needed to make this count. She was on her mission to put her family back together.
Maddox had been feeling off put for days. She was getting less and less visits from Helio in her sleep, and she didn’t know where Arnold was. To be fair, she generally felt Arnold around and therefore did not worry about him, but as of late she had been ignoring tugs of feeling and thinking it was her baby that was playing games with her. She decided there and then to find Erehwon.
Jaeger returned shortly, looking disappointed, "Nchledame's not going to listen to reason, and refused our help, again."
"Give him time," Willow stated calmly. "They have the means and he could take care of the problem for all of us."
