AUTHOR'S NOTE: This story is a work of fiction. (I think you've probably read

the disclaimer enough times by now, so I'm leaving it out. If you miss it, you can find it at the top

"Where was sea" indeed!

I apologize, guys. School has just started, and as usual, I'm overburdening myself with work

and extracurriculars. I'll be using every bit of my free time (read: cutting further back on my

sleep) to get the Quest done, so be forewarned that future chapters are going to be a bit shorter

than usual and quite wordy.

I promise, though, we're getting close to the end!


sea feigned compliance for as long as she could manage, which turned out to be long enough as

Marv and Gw7en went to fend of the Jehovah's Witness in the den. sea found the timing of the

Affy watched sea climb out her bedroom window and run for her rented car. He wondered why

she hadn't just left out the door like a civilized person, but then again, it was sea.

Affy let the screen door bang closed behind him, and saw Marv, Gw7en, and a rather nicely

dressed chap with an air of military discipline all jump at the sound.

'Is there any particular reason why sea was climbing out her window like a teenager sneaking

out of the house for a date?'

Marv and Gw7en exchanged looks, then ran to open sea's door.

The room was, of course, empty.
