Mathew leaned over, opened the door, and forcefully threw Garrett out. He landed like a sack of dirt on the cobbled streets; the pain in his chest from the bolt of lightning flared up, and he involuntarily curled into fetal position. The sound of the other two hopping out drew his attention. He tried to look up, but someone grabbed him from the back of his shirt, while the other took him forcefully by the elbow; they weren't messing about. Dragged him from behind, Garrett saw only the halted cart under light of obelisks; it was later than he expected. Trying to shake the hair from his face, he caught sight of a stone building, and as he struggled to maintain his balance, he was forced inside.

Guards ran back and forth from tables and desks. They were screaming orders and information about the attack on the libratoreum, the whereabouts of Larson, the death of guards and students alike. Reports of murder, conspiracy, and theft were most prevalent on the tongues of the Xorinth guard. One woman carrying a bundle of scrolls cheered when Garrett was dragged past her.

When I got there, the side door was already open, the guards were already dead, and the shelves were starting to burn. I ran to find Rolas, but he was dead, too. Oh, " Garrett huffed in desperation and pushed the hair from his face. "Someone in a black robe struck me with a bolt of lightning."

"That's good, " Mathew trailed off and looked at the door. "I'm glad you're not terribly wounded. It helps your case that whoever did this attacked you as well, but it doesn't prove you weren't involved…no, our best bet is Telumbra. If I can prove the time frame of the attack and she attests to your being there at the temple then I should be able to disperse the suspicion currently cast upon you."
