"Step one should be use the information she gave us to draw a map. Will have to try to guesstimate at the size of the rooms with and height as well as length. Once we know where all the paths are, we can map out a route that won't let them get behind this, also one of my ideas was to use Rachel's gift to the fullest. If we can get some tiny animals to scout that would save time. Frankly, her gifts are the only ones I know what to expect from."
Concerned, I look around to make sure no one else heard Grant before replying, "That is one heck of a leap, he probably just decided that since we couldn't do anything about it if we knew, and it was her decision, that she could explain it when she got back."
"Besides, any kind of collusion fails the motive test. To the best of my knowledge, everyone here has more to lose than gain by causing problems of that nature for us. He has the most to lose in that regard, he's put forth significant resources for our sake, and our work is the only value he gets in return."
"Look, lets go have a chat with him and his captain of the guard, see how he responds to our concerns over the task at hand. Just, for God's sake, leave the theories behind, I can't see any positive outcome from bringing them up."
"I can certainly be objective, if the answers make sense. I'm just telling you what my instincts are saying in the way this is going. If he was a project manager, I'd be looking for shortfalls and errors in the project.Let's arrange a time like you suggest, and keep it to the information she gained. Their forces are too large to over come at our skill levels."
I'll send word that we'd like a meeting with Lord Douglas and captain Lweithialia when time can be arranged.
I'm trying not to let Grant's suspicions bother me too much, but I have to admit some things haven't quite made sense.

The Commander Lwethiela will set a meeting with the lord after the evening meal if that is ok with you. The meeting will take place in the meeting hall as a informal meeting. Those that wish to be in attendance will ed to be there 30 minutes after the end of the evening meal.
"Right then, let us meet up again at that point. For now, rest up, especially you Rachel."
After people disperse, I'll turn to Thalica, "I should have offered this sooner. Would you like to learn the Common tongue? I believe Lywenta is available for imprinting."
I'll squeeze Vickie's hand and nod at her." Thank you so much." I'll shuffle off slowly to my room with Ghost. There I will nap and then prepare myself for the meeting.
Allowing myself a moment to calm down, Jason's words in my thoughts, I decide might need to offer some sort of an apology though when I turn around it appears Rachel's already gone. I will have to speak to her later.
Checking to see what is going on, making sure that I will be able to attend the meeting, I will find myself unable to rest right now and I good to the library for some reading. Hoping I can find something of interest or of use.
