Thorn (thinking): The rest of the team doesn’t have the same clearance . . . but with a hint like this? I’m sure the speculation is running wild by now.
Violet (thinking): Is it over the smuggling attempts we’ve intercepted? Easy to imagine the native guards letting them slide . . . But any Ceannic knights would’ve stopped them. So why us?
Juniper (thinking): Maybe it had to be us who stopped “Agent D” from assassinating those vampires. But the spirits could’ve just advised the government not to send her in the first place . . . Just how long is this game they’re playing?
Rowan (thinking): I bet it’s over some obscure for-want-of-a-nail thing.
One day I’ll order pizza at just the right time to divert the delivery person from an accident . . .
And that way somebody will survive who ends up being the parent of the tutor of the doctor that Rhodon’s next incarnation will need to save her life, 100 years from now.
Birch (thinking): Does this mean it was destiny for Thorn to find true love??
