Edge of Thorns 3 - Pt 40Part 40
He should at least know I saw Ira, but I think I'll keep Gabriel's involvement out of it.
Nathan drew a deep breath and shrugged, shaking his head. "Ira was here, but she's gone now. Don't know how she got out, but..."
"I think Lumiel and I will need to have a talk soon," Micah said with a sigh, followed by a sneeze. The angel frowned. "Perhaps when I am less obviously ill."
"I'll talk to him," Gabriel offered, giving Nathan a grateful smile for not telling him exactly where Ira went. "But now, let's check on Scott. That's the whole reason we came here in the first place."
Micah nodded, producing the key he'd gotten from the front desk, and unlocked the door to the reporter's room. Inside, the lights were on (since the blinds had been closed) but it looked almost uninhabited, except for a couple of suitcases leaning against the wall. There was no sign of Scott either, until the reporter appeared from the bathroom, holding an icepack to his head. He gave them all a

Episode 11: Judas
Across the bridge and through the passageway they'd previously only glimpsed, Alistair made his way on his own. The tunnel itself was narrow, and he had to squeeze some before it opened into another large chamber, this one with a myriad of exits to chose from. With a small sigh, the conman crossed his arms and leaned against the wall. "Well," he muttered to himself. "Looks like you've chosen quite the rabbit hole to explore, Mr. Liddell. Do try not to get lost." He ran his fingers through his hair. "Though I suppose one can't really get lost when he has nowhere in particular he's going. Let's see now..."
He began counting his various options, but then stopped. The light from his flashlight was ample enough, but just outside its beam he spotted another, dimly glowing speck. Alistair clicked off his light to see it better. Once he was sure he knew where it was, he turned his light on again so he could see his way and get a closer look.

Episode 10: Easier To Run
After everyone had had some mending, the group moved onward again. Guy still took the lead, despite being stuck as a cheetah, and Snow was right behind him, albeit supported by Alistair. It was a peculiar situation for the wizard, letting the man she knew was potentially dangerous help her, but she had little choice: there was no way she was letting Parker give her a hand after he was the reason she needed one, and she didn't want to give Artemis the satisfaction of her needing his help. And Guy was a cheetah. That only left Alistair, and as apprehensive as she was about him, she at least had to admit he was very patient with her limited mobility. And eager to help. Actually, the more she thought about, the more she realized he was more angry at Parker than anyone else for what he did, and he wasn't even caught in the spell.
It made her feel somewhat guilty about the ward she'd made around her tent the night before.
"Alistair?" Snow said quietly,

There's no time to waste!
Nathan didn't wait for them to finish arguing. He was out the door before either of the angels noticed, rushing through the halls and out of the building. The police station wasn't far from the motel, and for once the writer was glad for all the walking he'd had to do, knowing exactly where he needed to go. Half running, he pulled out his cellphone and tried to call Scott back. When, after two attempts, it still went to voicemail, Nathan gave up and broke into a full run. He had to get there immediately!
When the Cavalier Motel came into sight, nothing appeared amiss, and the writer relaxed some: he'd been expecting something obviously supernatural running rampant, given the panic in Scott's voice. That moment of relief didn't stop him from hurrying forward, however, looking out for anything out of place. Since he didn't know what room Scott was in, it would be his only clue.
There was nothing of note on the first floor, and nothing he co
