Take a walk through the peaceful meadows
Try not to look so disappointed
Sunday, April 9 * Late afternoon
Four days before the next full moon. One day before classes at the Phoenix started and her evenings were filled. A few hours before dusk fell and it would be difficult to see in the forest.
Vera worked well with a deadline, but this was cutting things a titch close.
Still, though: The replacement detector was completed. All that basically remained was taking it out into the forest, keying it in and then informing the Ministry so that perhaps they could stop sending her owls every day inquiring about her progress.
Considering the original detectors had taken years to develop and put into place — and that the Ministry was not sending her any assistance other than the so-helpful notes — really, she'd done quite well, Vector thought.
She squared her shoulders and knocked on the door of Roger's quarters. It was time to arrange for an "escort."
