"Well now!" Brin thought to herself, upon hanging up her cell phone. She'd known that reuniting Hawkeye with his wife's ghost wouldn't be as simple as it sounded, but things on her mother and daughter's end of the investigation had certainly become... interesting... in a hurry.
"Hawkeye, as soon as we reach a convenient station after dark, we'll be getting off this train and crossing over," Brin informed her companion.
"You know, Miss..." Hawkeye caught himself, "Brin, we're still being watched, of course."
"Yes, I'm aware of that," she answered, smiling mildly.
"And you're also aware that, since our encounter with the two Faes on the southern border of Union of Vengeance territory, we've been going steadily north-east," he added, as though it were mere trivia.
"Yes, we'll be trespassing deep in the lands of the Dark Sisters," Brin replied, equally nonchalantly.
