    Claes couldn't help but narrow her eyes as the woman questioned McCrae. They definitely weren't supposed to be chit-chatting with the people crossing the border, after all, and with Goibniu being too welcome to chat, he was an easy target for suddenly being stabbed or blasted with magic. Claes, however, kept her eye out.

    The woman could feel Claes' eyes boring into her, but ignored her and didn't bother to even greet her with a glance. Instead, she chuckled at Goibniu's answer.

    "How fascinating!" she said. "And what a charming young man you are. That said, it is nice to hear that you, I, Enkidu, and men, are all but working together to keep the peace and protect from Walpurgis threats. Makes me feel a little safer...and my hair a little less likely to frizz!"

    Claes rolled her eyes.

    "I believe you're clear, Madam," she said curtly. "You are free to pass."

    Claes used a Cartic mark to raise the boomstick up and let her through. The woman walked in and tipped her hat slightly, an odd gesture for a woman as it was considered more of a "man's" thing.

    "Well, thank you for letting me pass~" she said. "I'll make sure to try and not to get lost again."

    She started stepping forward, but then refrained as if forgetting something.

    "Oh, before I forget" she said turning to them. "Since you were so nice to me, I should warn you that I heard some talk amongst a few youngsters. Something about a 'movement' taking place later at three o' clock in the Parchens square. Not sure if it means anything, but best to be careful, right?"

    "Indeed! Quite good that we can different strides can align themselves for the sake of bringing peace to the land." Goibniu replied, feeling rather glad to hear that someone believed that an equal and prosperous world was possible. A sentiment that was so rarely echoed nowadays, that it might have distracted him from his duties for a moment due to waxing poetic about it.

    Luckily, Claes was doing her job and confirmed the woman was free to pass, giving the two a bow and a thank you. The way she tipped her hat was a bit off in terms of etiquette, but he paid no mind to it. "I hope you have a good day, madam." He said, when suddenly the woman gave them a warning, something about some mysterious reunion happening later today. "A 'movement'? That seems rather odd... Could you be so kind to tell us if you know anything else about it?" For her to mention that to the Expiate Officers meant that perhaps something was fishy about this reunion, perhaps something worth investigating?

    The woman paused mid-exit and rubbed her chin thoughtfully.

    "Well, they were singing a cute little ditty, that much I can tell you," she said. "How did it go again?"

    She paused before raising a finger.

    "Ah! Now I remember!" she said. She breathed in and murmured it in melody.

    "In the movement, in the nights of dead and dance
    In the movement, the haunted held within our hands."


    Claes arched an eyebrow.

    "What is that even supposed to mean, though?' she said incredulously.

    The woman shrugged.

    "I'm not sure. It could just be a popular song among them younguns."

    As it turns out, the strange group seemed to have some sort of melody composed for their deeds, and the lady was kind enough to give them an exert of that. "Mmmmh..." Goibniu pondered the meaning of the words, as Claes seemed to not really understand whether they had some significance.

    "Well, it might be an amateur-ish supposition, but perhaps this has a more, literal definition?" He suggested, giving his view to the women. "Perhaps 'in the nights of dead and dance' means that they must perform some sort of 'movement' during night time. And as for the 'haunted held within our hands' part, it believe it might be related to magic. But it is so vague, it could be anything..."

    He then turned to the lady, and made her a question. "Is there anything you can tell us about this?"

    Goibniu's suppositions only caused the young woman to shrug.

    "I really have no idea," she said. "And that's really all I heard. Sorry, deary."

    Claes would firmly touch Goibniu's arm before speaking to the woman herself.

    "You're free to leave, Madame," she said. "Thank you for informing us. We'll keep an eye out from here."

    The woman would once again bid them a good day. Claes carefully waited for her to leave entirely before pulling Goibniu closer and glaring at him.

    "Are you out of your mind, McCrae?" she said in a sharp whisper. "You can't just go about giving your assumptions on a matter to just anyone. How do we even know if what she's saying is true? And if it is true, would it really be wise to tell her that you agree there might be some rebellious movement going on--something she could spread about to others and cause widespread panic??"

    His moustache slightly deflated as the woman mentioned she had nothing to follow up on his theory. "Mmmh, I see. Whatever the case may be, I advice you practice caution, leave the sensitive matters to us." He said, as he suddenly felt an odd tugging on his arm, which turned out to be Claes.

    He looked at her in a confused look on his face as she bid the woman farewell, and then suddenly pulled him to warn him not to run his mouth. "Huh? It was just harmless speculations, since based on the information she gave us, she already knows more than us." He said, trying to reason his behavior. "In any case, should we report this to our superiors so that they can look into the matter? If the lady decided to warn us about such odd outings, maybe it's something worth investigating."

    Claes was quiet for a moment but quickly started shaking her head.

    "Oh no you don't," she said crossing her arms. "If you're suggesting we leave our post and abandon to investigate or report, you're not convincing me. We've gotten in trouble enough and we should stick to doing what we were told. Besides, it's not like a rebellion or anything could happen in plain day. It'd be too..."

    Claes' voice trailed as she thought about the other time they were together. The odd man with the alchemy. The girl turning into a Moira. Liseran turning hysterical when the girl was murdered.

    A bead of sweat trailed down the side of Claes' face and she sighed.

    "Here's what we'll do," she said. "I'll stay at the post. Aside from the fact I don't trust you to stay put, you can't detect or scan marks the way I can. I'll give you five minutes to head back to the other post and report your findings to the station. But you're to come back here, understand? Five minutes. Five."

    Claes raised her five fingers to emphasize the point. She then scoffed and turned back to her papers.

    "Now hurry. I don't want to stay alone for long."

    And then, with a quick flash of red on her face, "Not in the sense I enjoy your company, mind you! I can't risk Walpurgis spreading word there's only a solo person at the border. It might give them ideas. Get going!"

    Goibniu blinked as Claes mentioned that it was best to remain in their post instead of doing anything reckless. While she did pose a good point regarding them getting into trouble in the past precisely because of not following orders, Goibniu couldn't shake the feeling that something strange was happening. He was going to say something, but Claes' sudden silence deterred him.

    "Mmmh? What's on your mind, Officer Alfson?" He asked, and then received the answer in the form of a command. He was to quickly go to the other post and tell them about their findings ASAP. "Report this finding? Sure! That won't be a problem." His voice sounded rather boisterous, as this gave him a sense of pride in going beyond the call of duty to help his fellow officers into cracking some sort of case. The way she commented not wanting to be alone, and the subsequent blushing and defense was met with a chuckle from Goibniu, as he made an Expiate salute to reassure her. "Don't worry Officer, I'll be back before you even know it!"

    And with that, he ran off, his morning jogging sessions being finally put to good use.

    Goibniu's quest to report to the other officers would come to an unexpected halt as, when the Enkidu reached the post, it would be empty. There appeared to be no signs of struggle or even combat, but there appeared to be no trace of the officers that used to be there including Officer Kalt. If he looked closely, he'd see a shimmer of light where the border was, and as the clouds passed by and let the sun shine down, he'd see what appeared to be a wall of Cartic marks creating a temporary barrier where the post was.

    "McCrae," a voice would say from behind him.

    If Goibniu turned around, he would see Officer Kalt looking rather grave.

    "What brings you away from your post?" he asked. "Is there trouble?"
