Blacklake Terrors pt 3The day dawns bright and cool, the streets busy with Harvestide merchants. The group meets just outside the temple in Blacklake to continue their investigation.
Mari is happy she could leave Adra at the Mask
Darn stretches his arms "Did you have a nice sleep?"
Zara smiles, "I always sleep perfectly after a good dinner."
Kyle rub eyes, yawn
Mari snorts and elbows Kyle. "Don’t' complain, you slept more than me"
Kyle avoid Mari elbow, stomach growling
Darn coughs at Zara comment "How was the happy heiress?"
"You didn't have breakfast?" Mari asks him
"Did she do anything weird? Or . . . I dunno . . ." Zara asks
"She spent the night asking for stories" Mari yawns. "I left her sleeping, and some of my friends will care after her. She seemed interested to see our dresses and our makeup"
"Awkward enough she doesn’t want to see the surviving member so much as the uncle," Darn says leaning against the temple wall

Blacklake Terrors pt 2Adra wrinkles her nose. "I don't really know. I woke up one night and there was some shouting. Auntie Row locked herself in a bathroom and Papa told Uncle Viktos he had to live elsewhere . . . they didn't talk for a long time after that."
Darn walks with Andra to the gates of Blacklake, one hand in his pocket "Three people to suspect but none of them has to be the murderer..." he thinks
Mari "And where in the Docks does your uncle live?"
The girl shrugs, "Not too far from mama's house. I will show you." She stops for a moment, looking back at Blacklake before they cross the bridge. "I guess I will be living in the estate now."
Kyle "i believe my vision now!'
Darn "Ehmmm...." he glances at Kyle and smiles at the girl "Don't mind his strange behavior, he used to be the star of circus."
Mari continues grabbing Kyle's arm and follows Adra, smirking at Darn's comment
Zara covers her mouth hiding a little smile. "And th
