@al'Lan - I think we were all under the impression there was a crowd outside. Also I think Fade is leading the rest of us (as he follows the child) to wherever the crowd hypothetically is, so just go ahead and skip to whatever we find:
- kid trying to bolt (I think only Fade is expecting/caring about this)
- a lovely ambush (shell shocked Selena is worrying about this)
- or a group on the verge of some mischief (boy's claims)

PS - Not sure what nickname Fade would use for me, Cell, Eana, lina, Eeenie, Tuna (from Fortuna), Fishies (4tuna), roof rabbit (from the climbing)
