Monday, February 13th - Mid-Morning
There was no way to know how long the children had been missing. One of Maria Rufford's dorm mates had alerted Sprout early this morning that Maria hadn't come to bed that night. That in itself wasn't terribly worrisome as children had been known to fall asleep in an alcove studying or get mysteriously stuck in a room as the castle settled for the night.
Then someone chimed in that Thadeus Harper was also missing.
Two teens out all night was more of a "finger wagging, let's have a word with your parents" offense than a reason to panic.
