    Greg sighs in relief: "Oh, good. I was worried he would have been kidnapped or wandered off," he says.
    As they go farther through the city and reach the edge of this Quarter, most of them start to split off. Greg is still obviously going with Anchor, since he has to get back to the bottom of the waterfall. One other, as well, is going with them - more out of obligation for being saved: he figures he has to escort her as thanks for being saved, especially since it's so late at night and probably dangerous. Speaking of being late, if Anchor goes at a normal pace she'd get back in time for midnight but carrying the mermaid by herself would probably delay her just enough to be a little late. It's probably okay, though, because she'll be on the trail and Zophiel and her will run into each other there, around the waterfall most likely. Or she could tell Greg or the white knight guy to help out one way or another.

    Greg nods, and says, "Yes, that might be a better way to describe it. A blank feeling."

    The not-quite-invisible mermaid shakes her head: she was at the fort this whole time except when out on patrols, but she says, "Um, not quite, but it sort-of sounds like some stories I've heard from our scriptures."

    "Key looks broken," she says, stating the obvious.

    June looks down at her glowing hand.
    She opens her hand so that Selekhael could see it better. "It was down here and so I grabbed it. That way, I could still see what was in front of me even without your sword."

    "No, he listened and stayed put." And it would have been very easy to wander off. But not doing so probably saved him from the mystery creature.

    As the rescued folks split off to go home, Anchor bids them "Stay safe."

    And then, as they're walking further, she asks "Could one of you help carry, um, what's your name, miss?" She started off asking the two guys, but that last bit's for the mermaid, of course.
    "And would you tell me those stories it reminds you of, while we go?"

    "Maybe we can fix it?" Selekhael looks closely at it. "It looks like it was cast here. Maybe we could make a new one?" They have a lot of equipment for metal casting here, but they'd need to find the right mold and start the forge up again.

    "Yeah! Maybe," June says. "That'd be really lucky."

    She looks around trying to decide what to do. "Hey, you know a bunch about forges, right? You can go upstairs and see if you can get it started, and find any molds. I'll check downstairs to see what's there." She holds the glowing green light to demonstrate that she'll use it to see. "And if I need help, I'll just shout! And vice-versa."

    Greg is relieved that he listened when it was actually something important.

    The other guy says "Yes, of course!" he can carry her! and he tries to take the mermaid from Anchor. She's a bit heavier than he was expecting, but he can handle it. Just gotta adjust.

    "Amatheia," the mermaid says.
    She agrees to tell some of the stories while they walk. There's nothing particularly concrete, between the scriptural accounts and the folklore but they seem recognizably similar enough to the blank thing that attacked. The general gist of the stories is that there's a scorned lover (a folklore story), or a god of wrath who was sealed away (scriptural account) who threatens to return every year (scriptural account) and get revenge for various reasons and is especially dangerous to men (various sources).

    And...that's about it. Nothing really concrete.

    "Thanks."
    "And don't worry." Anchor tells Amatheia.

    And then she listens as they walk.
    Hmm. It could be the spirit a scorned lover who lived in this village, perhaps. Although being a god of wrath would explain it showing up after a battle.
    And if the mermaids' ritual was interrupted not so long ago, that could explain why it's here now.
    Different conflicting accounts about what it wants revenge for, so that's not really helpful.
    "How is it supposed to be sealed away, according to the scriptures?"
    She'll also be keeping an eye out for Zophiel. Will he have gotten back first, or be coming up behind them at the last minute?
