"Take care, Mister Hannity, " Garrett said as he stood. "Jacque, you, too."

"Oui, Monsieur."

Leaving the thieves' guild, the fencer frowned as he marched over the dirt floor on his way back to the creaky steps. Lionel Owens…if i can get a hold of him, maybe I can get some real answers. At the top of the steps, he opened the door to find a familiar face reaching for it; Mathew had come.

"All done then, " he asked. Garrett was momentarily stunned. "C'mon, c'mon, I'll take you to Sara's."

Garrett followed the detective out to Sandal Street. Once again, none of the workers were put out by the appearance of strangers. Coming to a halt with their backs to the warehouse, the fencer turned to Mathew, who was shading his eyes from the glare cast by a setting sun with his hand. A tight lipped smile flickered across the detective's face.

"Evidence would suggest that there is a White Wraith faction here, and we can only hope they have the artifacts, yet I remain skeptical." During his pause, Mathew rubbed his bottom lip with his thumb. "Evidence also suggests that whosoever stole the artifacts had a need to deliver them to Minister Parish—if it was in fact someone else and not Parish, himself, who stole them—and so it is rather doubtful that the artifacts are here…no, but I do think you should investigate the sewers while I return to tracing the magickal resonance."

"What, exactly, are we seeking there, " Fortha asked.
