    Imere took this moment to tune out entirely. The girl didn't need four people crowding her and Sir Humphrey was going into war stories so they'd be there for a while.

    Instead she went down to start poking around the phone and the power box, not so much looking to see if she could fix any of it but to see if she could identify what mystic power had caused her computer to short out. She wasn't an expert but she was sure that Sebastian wouldn't* mind if she looked through his books if she had any questions.

    “Yes, I am he.” Tom responds in his deep, baritone voice. “You are safe here, if you do wish to stay. Perhaps we can help you?”

    The Ogre didn’t like the fact that Kitsune seemed to be so frantically ready to flee into the night. It was obvious something had gone very wrong for this Changeling.

    “No one will touch you if we can help it.”

    He looks at the others then back to Kitsune. “No leaving. Who are you running from? That first. It’s tremendously important. To me. And it should be to them as well.”
    Kitsune opens her mouth as if to respond. She stays frozen like this for a moment, then shakes her head. "I... I don't think I can talk about that," she says, "It's... it's not safe." She slowly finds her balance as she rises, though her face pales slightly with the exertion.

    Reggy starts talking about his horse, but the story seems to be lost on Kitsune. Her attention seems to be drawn to her study of her surroundings. She takes in the living room like she is trying to memorize the space, her eyes darting to the next detail only to linger in focus. "What part of the city are we in? We are in New Orleans still, right?", she asks pointedly.

    Imere wanders off from the room and begins to study the phone. The old rotary machine is again inert, though the receiver is surprisingly warm, and there is a strange smell of cloves and sea salt.

    Imere takes a look at the unconnected phone and shrugs. There isn't much clue as to what happened with the phone, though it most likely was related to Kitsune's appearance.

    Sebastian frowned. “I still don’t like it. We are in New Orleans still, I think. Still is very informative. You weren’t somewhere else...I guess.

    It was time to be practical. He pulled out a notebook from his pocket and a pencil, and began writing down notes on the Kitsune’s sudden appearance. Every circumstance was recorded. He tried to make sense of jt, puzzle things out such as exactly how she had arrived.

    Mmm, if she didn't know it then it'd be in a book somewhere. In the absence of anything pressing she started paging through records in Sebastian's library.

    "It's not important," Kitsune snaps at Sebastian. She looks around the room. She takes a deep breath to calm her nerves. "Where in the city are we then? What neighborhood?" Once she is informed, she replies, "Well then, can you take me to Annie the Black Widow? I don't think her home is too far away. She can help."

    Annie the Black Widow, also known as Annie the Trickster, was a Wizened and member of the Night Reveler's Freehold. She ran a bespoke tailoring business not far away on Magazine Street in the Garden District. Unlike most of her freehold, Annie was quiet and unsociable. She had a reputation for being a bit of a recluse, and most Changelings did what they could to stay away from her shop on Magazine Street.

    As per her nickname, she had a reputation for not taking kindly to most men, despite running a man's tailoring shop. Some gossiped that she actually poisoned and ate the men who came to her shop, though that was likely just rumors.

    This was befuddling. The whole situation with Kitsune. Who was she fleeing from? Where did she flee from? Regardless of the details, Tom knew that she was in need of assistance. When she asked about escorting her to Annie, Tom allowed his dark gaze to flicker between the remainder of his Motley.

    “I will escort you, my Lady.” Tom says firmly, voice growling out the words. “And you shall have nothing to fear under my protection.”

    Sebastian’s face darkened a little more, but now it was a combination of his distrust of the growing situation and the gnawing element of fear at new interaction, especially with the Black Widow.

    “Couldn’t you just...FaceTime her? Or call...a letter maybe? Trained pigeons are nice too.”

    "Thank you", Kitsune says to big Tom, "Would it be possible to go now? I fear I am still in great danger. I have to get out of this city as soon as possible." She pauses momentarily, her eyes narrowing suddenly, then she asks "Oh, and do you have a hammer I could use?"

    To Sebastian, Kitsune says, "I think Annie is the only one I trust to guide me through the Hedge and to safety. I apologize, but right now, I don't know how much I can even trust you four. I must go, and I must go very very soon."

    Imere is just about to walk away from the phone, when a knock comes at the door; three hard raps. Looking through the eyehole, Imere can see a man standing at the threshold, dressed in a classic detective's trench coat and hat. The man had cold blue eyes and a stern expression, but his lips were around a straw and he was taking a long draw from a bright yellow Hi-C juicebox.

    Kitsune is already out of her seat and halfway across the room when Reggy speaks. She looks from the door to Reggy, her eyes wide an wild. "Is there a place to hide back there?" she asks, her muscles tense and hands twitchy.

    Sebastian’s eyes widen as he sees Reggie striding towards the drawing of his door with their “guest.” He stammers, trying to get ahead of them but not quite succeeding.

    “Wait, no...not my library. It’s too...dangerous! And it’s being fumigated. Haunted! It’s haunted.”

    When they finally get to the door he finally gets in front of them, holding out his hands.

    “Just don’t touch anything at all! Not even a little bit!”

    Imere's remark causes the man to shudder momentarily with frustration. There is something very odd about the man in the trenchcoat. Imere couldn't immediately sense anything truly Fae or supernatural about the man, but he didn't fully register as human either.

    The man took another long pull from the bright yellow juicebox, and Imere could hear the slurping sound as he drained the last few drops. When he lowered the box and licked his lips, Imere could see his tongue was a bright artificial red, the same color as the cartoon cherry on the Hi-C box. Discarding his sugary beverage, the man pounded again on the door. "Let me in now mam," the man calls in a harsh and anxious voice, "you don't want me to have to let myself in!" The door knob shakes several times as he tries the lock.

    ************************************************** ******

    Sebastian again drew his large chalk rectangle and the group watches as the wall seemed to shimmer and warp, solid seeming to become liquid momentarily. And then there was a wooden door in the wall. It appeared to be painted bright red, and was laced with silver decoration. The door swung open inward, leading the group into Sebastian's Hollow.

    The library is essentially a tower, and looking up one can see the spiralling staircase going up the outer edge, terminating two floors above in an upper room which is largely unable to be seen from the ground. The bottom floor is a hodge podge of things. There are tables that have labels near stacks of books, ranging from the normal (“To Be Read”, which reaches nearly to the ceiling) to the enigmatic (“They Know What They Did”, for example, containing a relatively modest pile of books). There is a desk, covered with pens, papers, quills, and bound books, ranging from octavo paper to reams of what look like actual vellum. A small kitchen is against one side of the ground floor, containing a small refrigerator, electric teapot, and a pantry closet.

    Sebastian takes his wheeling chair from behind the desk and brings it over in front of a small red cushioned loveseat. He points to the loveseat.

    “There. You can sit there. I...will sit here.”

    He sits down, slouching in the chair. He looks at Reggy after a moment.

    “Whatever happened to the old values? When strangers remained strangers and people had the good sense to stay at home?”

    He turns his gaze back to Kitsune.

    “Who is he, then? I know, I know, not ready to tell us yet, need to go see a spider lady. But can he...hurt us?”

    Tom dips in a deeply respectful bow, before straightening up to his full, impressive height.

    ”Whenever you are ready to dep…” The notion of leaving now was cut abruptly as Tom heard the knock on the door. The frantic half-bickering that followed brought a frown to the deep-set, dark expression the Ogre wore. Again, his mouth opened to speak but at the sudden acknowledgement of hiding with Sebastian and Reggy. Instead, Tom began to plod his way towards the front door where Imere had called for him.

    Or at least he assumed that the Lancelot jibe was against him. He’d have to gently correct her later. Lancelot was a skirt-chasing womanizer, and Tom would never have invited himself into Arthur’s marital bed.

    Pushing aside the notion for now, Tom approached Imere with a frown still upon his face.

    ”Thank you, Imere.” Tom says as he arrived at the door.

    ”What seems to be the…problem?” Tom asked sharply. A massive hand would prop the door open just enough for his black eyes to feast on whomever was on the other side of the door. While waiting for some response from their visitor, Tom simply…stared, unblinking at their new guest.

    The man seems unphased by Imere's threats, but he stops pounding on the door when Tom turns the lock. The massive figure opens the door and gives his best glower. Tom's stare was sharp enough to cut silk and screamed danger like a siren.

    An ordinary man would have been sent packing, or maybe even lost control of bodily functions, but the detective figure simply met Tom's gaze with ice blue eyes. "It sounded like an explosion just went off in here. May I come in and investigate? "

    He pulls from his jacket a shiny bronze badge which he flashes just momentarily before returning it. The man gives Tom the same uneasy feeling that Imere had sensed. He makes no attempt to enter unless Tom steps aside.

    ************************************************** ***

    Kitsune looks at Sebastian cautiously. "I don't know," she replies after a pause, "probably. He is very powerful." There is a look of guilt in the girl's face momentarily and for a second it looks as though she is about to cry.

    Then she gets a hold of her emotions, and replaces the melancholy with stern determination.

    'Then I'd best go and reinforce Tom and Imere.' He silently mouths Keep an eye on her to Sebastian, although he knows he hardly needs to, at least while she was in the library. He hurries down to the front door.

    "We'll see," said Imere, rolling her eyes. "Just give me a good look at that badge, let me read the badge number, and wait two minutes while I call the precinct and confirm it's legit."

    She had personally used that trick like sixteen billion times and wasn't about to fall for it here. Heck, her entire career was basically long form that trick.

    "By the way, just for the record, you are in fact stating that you are a currently active police officer in service to the New Orleans police department?" Imere said. She wanted to hear him give a direct answer - no con artist wanted to be cornered into making a direct lie.

    With one thick hand still on the door to ensure no one overzealously tries to force their way in, Tom waits with unmoving, glacial patience as Imere requests further proof from the man at their door. All they really needed to do was to give Kitsune and the others time enough to get settled into their safe spot. As for an explanation of the state of the bathroom? Well, a miserly landlord and a giant of a man trying to do his own home repairs would be an implausible but not impossible stretch.

    The man sighs at Imere's obstinance, his cold blue eyes growing harder with frustration. "No, I never said I was a police officer," he responds as he reaches a hand into his trench coat to retrieve the badge again.

    But he pauses as he sees Reggy coming down the stairs, disappointment creeping into his eyes. "Seriously, your entire motley is going to get involved?", he scowls as his frustration grows sharper.

    It is at this moment that the previous impervious Mask begins to flicker and the man's Mein shines through. The stony face and square jaw are replaced with a reptilian snout, all dark brown scales. His cold blue eyes are now large round black ones. A tight fist made of four scaled clawed fingers drop the crumpled yellow juice box, and he sighs, "I really don't want to have to wipe all of your memories." The statement is made offhandedly, but likely cuts like the worst most personal threat possible to a Changeling. Changing tones, the Darkling in the trench coat pleads, "Please help me out here. Your entire house just exploded with Glamour. I simply came to investigate. It's my job."

    He finishes retrieving his badge and again shows it for all to see. The Bronze shield is embossed with a Fleur-de-Lys, flanked at four corners by a saxophone, a coin, a crown, and a Mardi Gras mask. These are the symbols of the four freeholds, though no one has ever seen a shield like this, nor heard of an officer with such a badge.

    Inside Sebastian's Hollow, Kitsune is pacing around the library. She stops at times to scowl at Sebastian, who she hasn't yet warmed up to. She moves like a caged animal, and seems to be trying to distract herself by examining the spines of the various shelved books. Every once in a while she stops to place a bloody hand on a book to get a closer look, only to push the book back in its place with an irritated sigh.

    "So, there isn't any trod we can take from here to get into the Hedge, right?" she says with frustration, stopping at Sebastian's beloved book of spells and reaching for it.

    Sebastian makes a point of walking behind her, and meticulously scrubbing away any of the marks that are made on the books, with a loud sigh each time.

    “I notice you’re not sitting down. And that you are in fact touching things. Neither of those are good. There’s no trod through here. I’m not here rolling in magical money to invest...metaphorically. I don’t even like *leaving*, except that I have to. Work and all.”

    When she reaches the protected book, ensconced inside another fake book, and more horrifyingly pauses, Sebastian almost screams.

    “You...really, really, *really* want nothing to do with that. Terrible book. All about a lens grinder.” He carefully watched the response.
