Jayden


Groaning, he rolled to his side, stretched, grimaced and got to his feet.

"Geezly Christmas, I feel worse than I did before the nap."

Jayden wiped his face, expecting to find it sweaty but it wasn't and he frowned at his hands and shook his head. He half-remembered something about a very bad dream, but the details slipped rapidly away from his conscious mind before he could grasp them.

"Feel like I've been rode hard and put up wet."

As if the computer heard his words, the little screen saver clears itself, and flashing at the bottom of the screen is yet another message about the hunt for the boy.

AP News Wire - Missing boy's left shoe has been found covered in blood. Hounds are out in force searching the area with volunteers.

Jayden


Concentrating on the flashing alert on the computer screen, Jayden almost missed his chair seat as he sat down. He lurched to the left, moving with the rolling chair and managed to catch the arms and pull the office chair back in front of his desk.

"Damn... that doesn't sound good."

Jayden looked around the room.

"Hey, Dizzy... where are you, cat?"

Oblivious to the looming dog treat, she is making her way to Jezzabella's.

Dizzy didn't seem to be in the room.


<Tiger-Lily's walk>
The walk across the territories went well. Soon she approached the old cat's house.

She heads up the path looking for Jezzabella.

The old cat is in the same place, apparently sleeping. Does she ever move? The leader of this little town was certainly old, maybe that was the reason.

One eye opened as Tiger approached. The old cat lifted her hind quarters and stretched from the front shoulders, through an arch and all the way out to the tip of her tail. A quick flick of her head wiggled her ears and whiskers.

She slinked off of the pillow on the window sill and squiggled under the sash of the open window. A light thump as she landed on the porch ready to go.

Tiger-Lily

"I presume you know the way to the woods? I travelled there in the metal box and do not have scents to guide me but I can show you where I found the remnants of the casting when we get there."

She assumes they will travel direct so hopefully it is not as far as it seemed travelling with her burden.

The old cat nods agreeing. The long trek over many different territories begins. The moon travels it's arc in the night as they pad along. Somewhere near it's apex they near where the boy had gone missing. The whole place smells of burdens as they have tromped all over the place since she had been here last.

Jayden


He was seldom beset with uneasy nerves, but now Jayden thought... well something was wrong. Of course a missing kid was wrong, but that wasn't it.

Problem was, he didn't know what it was or even what it might be.

Jayden rocked forward and back several times in the swivel office chair and then, without conscious volition he found himself going into the bedroom where he stood on tiptoes and barely reached a box on the top shelf of his closet and almost all the way to the back. Using the tips of his fingers he managed to tip and then slide the box forward until he could get both hands on it.

He took the box back to his desk and opened it. There, inside, was an old looking Charter Arms .44 Special revolver, the bluing scratched and the walnut grips worn.

Jayden would have thrown it away long ago except for the fact that it had been his grandfather's and, after that, his father's. Also in the box were a cleaning kit and a half box of shells. He looked down into the box for several long moments, thinking of his father and of his grandfather.

Then he slowly took the revolver from the box, checked to make sure it was unloaded (he knew it was unloaded, but his father and grandfather had pounded range and gun safety into his head from the time he was about twelve), disassembled the piece and cleaned and oiled it, enjoying the precise little click-click-click of the cylinder as he turned it.

Jayden wiped the gun down and loaded it with six cartridges.

And wondered why...

The old piece of metal offered comfort in its own way. Heavy and cold it reminded him of its age, though not without offering other feelings as well.

Jayden


His eyes misted over and his focus grew distant as the old memories beset him, but he did not quite cry. There was something behind those memories, edging around them, nagging at him, feelings of a sort which had nothing to do with his male antecedents... everything to do with now and not then.

Or perhaps a different then.

Thinking about it did not seem to help at all.

Tiger-Lily/Dizzy

She scents the air and looks around getting her bearings, then cautiously moves forward to where she found the bones. Before she gets there though she warns Jezzabella that it was just ahead and that was where the strange feelings started.

Then she moves forward carefully and slowly. She will also look to see if her ward is still intact.

Jayden lovingly works the metal till they barely click as they smoothly turn. The weapon will be in the best condition it has been in for years.

The news ticker on his computer notes that nothing more has been found about the boy and the search has been suspended on account of darkness.



Out in the forest Tiger finds her ward still intact. Jezzabella wanders around flicking her tail. "Ward is satisfactory," she offers very nearly a compliment.

She stops near the place the old working had been. Her tail flicks faster and she hunker down. "This is an interesting magic. The little girl burden was kept asleep by this."

Tiger-Lily/Dizzy

She is listening to the sounds of the woods, alert to any changes that might signify danger approaching. She is pleased that Jezzabella approves her ward. She wants to be useful and to play her part in this new society.

"So the boy burden was singled out, maybe taken to be part of a dark magic working?"

That thought is a frightening one. First because a child burden is involved and secondly because it must be a powerful and dire magic to require such.

"Do we look further in? Or go back to discuss with the others?"

Jezzabella

"We see what else we can learn. The night is still new and I am getting older by the nap." Though her words said one thing, she clearly looked at Tiger to pick a direction to go.
