Mara switched off her talkbox and returned to the Family Room, where Family Time had been briefly interrupted while she answered Her Ladyship’s call. She smiled at the children still in play, then did her best to silently convey to Kelvin that the call had not been a social one. She whispered to him that they’d discuss what she knew later.

Hovering above what constituted the mutual borders of all three empires was Castle Wulfenbach, naturally dwarfing the ambassadorial airship of Emperor Tarvek. Each airship displayed the three flags of themselves and their respective allies. Not yet having made her presence known was Empress Agatha, which rarely failed to make her two former suitors nervous, even if she always kept them waiting, whether due to a death-defying escape against impossible odds, or as was typically the case these days, simple tardiness.

Agatha yanked off the large poster hanging just inside the coffeehouse and stormed right over to its apparent proprietor, a young, tall man of two-toned hair who cringed as she went off on a tirade about it. From what Mara could piece together from his attempts at rebuttal, the poster, depicting Agatha in a flimsy nightgown and seductively pouring a cup of coffee, had been hanging there at least three years now, was a conversation piece for tourists, and how had she not seen it all this time?? As Agatha’s rant droned on, Mara was drawn to the other tourist attraction: the coffee machine. She stood to its side and studied it, trying to ascertain which of it was functional and which of it just for show. It was certainly the most complicated brewer she’d ever seen.

For the better part of an hour Mara was dogpiled with questions about every detail of her time in Dupree’s airship, no matter how insignificant it seemed. It became clear right away that she would need to enter a state of perfect clarity to recall what they needed. She quietly went into her own Madness and used it to mentally return herself to the scene, and was able to recall every detail. Now it was all they could do to keep up with the sudden barrage of information.

Mara was discharged from the hospital at eight a.m. and made immediate plans to return as soon as she had settled her affairs of the day. Meetings had already been rescheduled, delegated or canceled. Theo and Sleipnir were left in charge of the minutiae until further notice, with time allotted to visit Agatha and Violetta as they desired. Mara offered a haggard and bleary-eyed Heather her gratitude and sincere apology for ignoring her pleas and endangering herself. She gave her beleaguered assistant a long hug, a kiss on the forehead, and a day off with pay. With some reluctance, Heather complied with the last item. Since leaving the hospital, Mara had been the bustle of activity that both the Royal Physician and her husband had warned her not to be, but there was just no reasoning with this scientist.

Before being brought to the hospital, Agatha had managed to give at least an educated guess where Violetta might be. Both women hoped that she’d simply escaped and had made it to Mechanicsburg by now. Mara had to be sure. After taking flight, she contacted Kelvin’s talkbox; he responded within seconds and immediately berated her for not answering earlier.

Heather knocked on the door to the exercise room and listened for a reply. When she heard nothing, she carefully pushed on the door, but something dragged on the floor. She pushed harder and peeked inside to find her Lady sitting on a bench, her shoulders hunched, hands lying loosely on her lap, her head low. She was covered in the grime and sweat typical of a vigorous workout.
