The scroll in Nox’s hand was as tall as she was. Grimm and Loki were going over it with her, double and triple checking every word and symbol.

“Bathurst’s mirror. Magny’s summoning jar. Jaques de Fleury’s power circles.  And Tragan’s Laws.  I think that is as streamlined as we are going to get it,” she said. “Grimm, I need you to get the shew-stone from mother’s study. Use a wind to scour the courtyard down to bare rock, and place the stone there.”

“I’m on it.”

Nox continued going over her list. “Shew-stone, satchel, healing crystal, thawed and dissected firethorn. I think that’s everything.  It had better be, since I’m only going to get one shot at this. Damn, I hate working without testing,” she said. “How are we doing on time?”

Loki looked up at the moon, which hung low in the sky. “We are cutting it close, but we should still have an hour or two.”

Grimm’s voice echoed in their minds.  “No, we don’t. They are starting to move, little one.”

“Aw, crud.” She rolled up the scroll, picked up her tools and took off towards the mansion at a run.

Grimm was waiting for her at the entrance to the gatehouse. “The courtyard is clear. Are you ready?”

Nox took a deep breath, and let it out.  “Yeah. I’m ready.”
