"Well. . ." she began. "Between desertions, casualties, people turning rat, and all of the arrests. . . membership is down."

"We're it, " Tus stated, his eyes on the updated roster.

"Well, not quite, but soon. I suppose we only were able to exist because the Blues didn't consider us a threat. . . now they do, " she said.

"About time, " said Tus.

"Heh. Yes. At least they are taking us seriously now. Kel, there's too much going on now. My brother Henry is the one giving Wolloff his supplies. If the Elites are still prowling around in Ravenwood. . . I would just feel better with a hand that is a bit firmer on a sword doing the job. I want you to see to Wolloff, " Caya said.

She managed to turn her eyes to the side, where she spotted Deacon in a chair beside the bed, also asleep. Her eyes lifted in time to see a dark form vanish from the window. Lain? She tried to move, causing Myn to stir. The dragon caught a glimpse of the girl's fluttering eyes lids and sprang to her feet, still on top of her. Myn looked to the sleeping Deacon and gave a sharp lash with her tail, jerking him to wakefulness.

"What, what?" he said, before gathering his wits enough to realized that Myranda was awake. "Thank heavens."

"What is wrong?" Myranda asked.

"We lost you for two days. I was afraid we might have another Hollow on our hands, " he said.

"Two days. I was asleep for two days?" she said, scratching her head and sitting up.
