The weather had been mild recently, and that morning was no different. The sun prickled the skin with pleasurable warmth while cooling breezes fluttered through clothing. All manners of people walked up and down the cobbled streets. A few carriages also went by. They were loaded with lumber, and Garrett knew he was getting close. He started checking doors for numbers. To his surprise, he reached a massive warehouse with enormous, open doors.

The doorways provided ample room for the passage of carts, but there were none there at the time, just men shouting orders at each other to move this or pick up that. The fencer nearly laughed when he caught sight of Jacque inconspicuously standing by one of the interior doors at the far end of the warehouse.
