Okay, good.

I was thinking perhaps it could be inside a sealed letter. Do you know how people used to heat wax, then stamp the letter closed? Saul's group could have their own red wax seal, then. I think the parchment and envelope should be very fancy, as well, just to be ironic.

Group's name idea: Assemblage of __________

Dictionary Definition : Zara Sahana 007- Also known as "Zara," this abnormal specimen of the female gender of Homo Sapiens exhibits various bizarre behaviors. The most common of these include James Bond obsession, video game fever, and perhaps the strangest of all, a certain fondness for mathematics. Similar to other Homo Sapiens of the Literary Cabinet world, Zara Sahana 007 displays procrastination in brilliant forms, but will not admit to her oddball ways

That sounds good...it seems more straightforward than cliched...

Arabelle Marsh:

Your father's crimes were unforgivable, and we have therefore killed him. Be forewarned: You are next.

----



Eh, cheesy, or not? We could edit later, I suppose.

I think we should also come up with a name for Saul's "group."

Definitely. What should be written in the note?

Well, it has to be short and to the point, because Saul doesn't seem like the type to write a lengthy complaint.

Perhaps something that targets Arabelle? Something that says "You're next" but that specifically seems really cheesy.

I agree with you. How about she wakes up, connects her vision with the murders, then later meets with Wyatt? Maybe Wyatt can come to Pearl's house himself, searching for her.

She should probably open the note somewhere in there as well.

I read it and I loved it. Hmm...now we need to figure out what comes next. I'm assuming it is the next morning at Pearl's house, when the next passage starts. I think that Arabelle should meet with Wyatt in the next excerpt.

I can write the next part, and as for the events, how about it covers her being asked if she's okay by various policemen, then her leaving.

How should she leave? Pearl takes her and Gus home in a carriage, perhaps?

I'll have it up tonight. Very Happy

Good plan. I can't wait to read your part.

Maybe right there, among policemen asking her if she's okay. Then, she could freak out and leave.

I like it so far, Zara! I can't think of any changes to be made.

Next, maybe we could have Arabelle run to her friend's house, but along the way she meets Wyatt?

Okay, I just posted my part. Again, it's just a first draft, so it might not read that well. I'll edit later if necesary (I probably will).

So what happens next? I didn't have Arabelle open the letter. All she did in my passage was spot it, and slip it into her dress.

If you want me to make any changes, just let me know.

I think so, but I doubt she would be at her house still; it would be swarming with police, right?

Maybe she stays with Pearl or Gus.

For your other question: maybe she spends the rest of the day dwelling on her vision, then upon returning home, finds it came true: her parents were beheaded.

I suppose someone would accompany her. Maybe a carriage picks her up from school to take her home?

How about the carriage driver was the person who murdered her parents as well, and he was hired by Saul? She wouldn't know that though, not yet. Very Happy

Unless Saul would do it himself? Your pick.

It's fine-we can always edit later. So, I'll be doing the next part? What am I going to write about? I'm guessing the end of that day, when Arabelle goes home and finds her parentss murdered with a note next to their corpses.
