Violetta and Zeetha had joined Kelvin on the other side of the gorge. According to them the Castle was “going crazy,” so he was not the only one anxious about the other women’s fate. All three of them stood at the edge of the bridgeless gorge and kept a steady eye on the library’s tower. Finally, they spotted movement; somebody was climbing out of a hole in the floor. The figure was blonde and wearing green, meaning it could be either Agatha or Mara. The woman finished climbing out and helped the other woman up and out. The Castle did its part by reforming the elaborate stone and metal bridge, starting from the two women’s side. Kelvin swayed side to side impatiently as the women walked.

“I can’t ask you to do this,” said Kelvin.

“Come on, I’m the only one who can,” said Agatha. “I’ve already been there and back, remember? I’m not going to let her down. And I need to find out why the Castle has been so insubordinate lately.”

She started to move to the trap door, when Kelvin stopped her. He took up her hand and kissed it. “Please save my wife,” he said, “My Lady.”

“Which names are you looking at?” asked Agatha. “Olaf and Cassandra?”

Under the name Outragio Heterodyne was a line to an Olaf Heterodyne, birthdate known and deathdate “??,” connected to Cassandra (no maiden name), birthdate “??” and deathdate: known. The vertical line indicating their progeny ended with a question mark instead of a name.

“Yes, those,” said Kelvin. “It’s the names of her parents.”

Agatha folded her arms and set her jaw. “Are they, now?”

Moloch was proving to be quite the good tour guide. Not only was he keeping the activities and places that were visited appropriate for all ages, but nobody was bored by his narration. None of the ladies in his group, that is. It could not be expected for a two-year-old boy and an infant to be riveted by tales of Mechanicsburg history and politics. The fact that the four (and a third)-year-old girl was a Spark all but guaranteed her lack of boredom. Like her mother, Isabel could not help quietly examining everything that she saw, whether it be object, animal or person. But the clankier the thing they saw, the more interested she was.

Agatha had followed Violetta’s advice and stowed away “Puri” in her workshop for later examination and possible disassembly. If Mara had known this, she would not have been the slightest bit offended. Since embracing her own Sparkiness, Mara was prone to taking apart just about everything for study. She might have been hurt if Agatha had no interest in studying her clank, indicating a lack of curiosity or boredom with its mediocrity. Mara tried not to think about such things.

It was decided to be a Ladies Night in the den, so Agatha was accompanied by Violetta and Snaug, who gave a goodnight kiss to Moloch. Violetta pretended not to notice. Chairs were arranged in a semi-circle in front of the fireplace, which was blazing away. Snaug was tasked with bringing up the wine bottles and glasses for the evening. Violetta curled up in her chair and brooded.
