Chapter 114: Something Unexpected

In Uncategorized on April 24, 2011 at 2:45 am

I stand, and nearly fall back down again when my eyes fall on something at the base of a nearby tree. Instead of white flowers, there is a headstone carved from granite. It lies flat on the ground, and while it doesn’t look fresh, it’s definitely not old, either.

There are markings carved into the stone, and they are in a language I’ve come to know well.

It’s Margery-speak, our secret traveler’s code made up of scratches and pictures.

The good news: no spears, no trios of diagonal lines. No need to bear arms, no immediate danger.

The bad news?
