Meanwhile at the office The entire Minnesota office is on Code Red after the Princess Peach button has been pressed. Mouse Pad drafts Deanna Wyld’s Grace and Meave “Banshee Cry” on to active duty to go with her to help figure out what happened at the Denny’s in Farmington. She also gets Mel “Brews the Spirits” off her sick leave.
the entire Section 7 office comes to the Denny’s. Songs of Season ie [S.O.S.] handles deal with the Police and Fire department to get them to give Section 7 priority over the case claiming to be HomeLand security Section 7.
Mouse Pad goes to where Silent Strike is waiting amongst the scattered survivors of the explosion. Andrea Walker is in bad shape not escape the blast in time. Tommy is handing out stuffed animals from the broken Crane Machine game to the survivors.
Mouse Pad gets a healer to revive Andrea Walker as she screams at Silent Strike demanding to know what happened. Silent Strike explains what had been the plan and how Tosh “Blue Screen” died. Mouse Pad expresses frustration over the cock-up and assigns Deanna Wyld’s Grace, Mel “Brews the Spirits”, and Meave “Banshee Cry” to the team.
Mouse Pad asks Silent Strike what happened to Echos of the past and Cedric “Thunder clap”. Silent Strike admits she isn’t sure where they were. Mouse Pad demands that they find and recover the two missing members.
Mel “Brews the Spirits” hears a ghost on the other side and goes to investigating thinking it might be Tosh “Blue Screen” instead she finds it to be a 9 year old who was a ghost muttering to herself in the umbra. Mel “Brews the Spirits” takes Meave “Banshee Cry” with her as they interview the girl. The girl claims to be “Awakened” and that she had found an object that would help improve her ‘sphere of influence over the spirit world’ improve, she claimed it to be a ‘wonder’. She claimed the spirit the spirit offered her a deal because it was trapped in the library that if she released it all her wishes would come true but that it had someone’s wishes to fulfill first. The girl agreed but the spirit took over her body and now she was dead. Mel “Brews the Spirits” offered to call someone to take the girl “home” but the girl claimed her “tradition” was coming to pick her up.
Mel and Meave cross back to the other side and warn everyone else. Mel “Brews the Spirits” looks for anything tainted in the area and finds a minivan filled with a lot of weird objects [a fob watch, a wooden flute, a vile of blood, a necklace and a dream-catcher] and a sleeping bag. Meave “Banshee Cry” finds the necklace to be the main tainted thing, trying to cleanse it but even though it should have worked it was still tainted. They hand the objects to Mousepad.
Cedric “Thunder clap” finds himself in an odd place in the umbra that looks like a child’s playroom. He sense the bane near by and think he hears crying. A Lune spirit [the same one that the bane had convinced to attack him] appears saying it is going to save him. The lune grabs him and takes him a cross a moon bridge dropping him off on the Umbral side of the Denny’s. He meets the little girl ghost as well. He asks her how she died and she told him that the spirit had taken over her body. Cedric realizes that the spirit or bane has been using a real-side counterpart and apologizes for not being able to save her. She accepts his apology but warns him her ‘tradition will not be as forgiving’ and he crosses back.
Andrea Walker wakes up from his injures and has a private conversation with Mouse Pad where she offers resistance to letting him stay with the pack but agrees to let him continue.
When Cedric “Thunder clap” comes back he along with Meave “Banshee Cry”, and Mel “Brews the Spirits” warn the Section 7 people there for the clean up that something is coming. The clean up crew pull out leaving the scene to be taken care of by the team except for Grease Trap who offers her help since they are with out a fighter.
Mel “Brews the Spirits”, Meave “Banshee Cry”, and Deanna Wyld’s Grace decide to leave the scene too. Tommy asks if he can go with since he doesn’t want to die. Andrea calls him a ‘wuss’ and the rest of the original team tries to pressure him into staying. Meave takes Tommy along with them anyways. Andrea and Tommy exchange a couple text messages about whether or not having sex with Meave when she offers it is a good idea or not. Tommy goes ahead with it anyways.
Andrea Walker hides in the blown up alley way while Silent Strike Blurs and peaks in the Umbra. Vacates-the-Premises waits with a gun on her hip for the trouble to start while Cedric “Thunder clap” goes across the street to offer back up if needed. A police officer rolls by and tries to give Vacates a little trouble but Andrea uses his influences to make the officer leave.
Silent Strike sees in the umbra what looks to be a ship drift in and take the girl onto their ship and then leave again. She says the trouble left making most of the group depressed and head back to the main office.
When back at the main office the group finds out that the C.O.G. [Alice V] and the Fianna [Ross VI] kinfolk died on the way home from the Denny’s but Eric [Get Kinfolk] is still alive and was put under house arrest until things got sorted. Andrea Walker reveals to MousePad that Thomas Smith is next on the list. Mouse Pad agrees that Andrea take Tommy out and try to keep him safe.
After Andrea and Tommy have left Mouse Pad tells the rest of the group that Tommy is next. They all decide to fallow the 2 kinfolk to the Bone Bone Gnawer sept in Minneapolis “People serving People” [also named after and located in the homeless shelter].
Andrea Walker tells Tommy the bad news who freaks out a little bit. Silent Strike shadows the 2 kinfolk in blur at all times.
Meave “Banshee Cry”, Mel “Brews the Spirits”, and Deanna Wyld’s Grace sit around watching the kinfolk but mostly just Sing and talk.
Rittimer “Juggles Frag Grenades” had gotten intel from S.O.S. to go to this bar and has been sitting in the back of the room watching everything.
Cedric “Thunder clap” stands near the edge of the bawn waiting for the physical tool of the spirit/bane to show up. After a couple minuets Echos of the past shows up. Cedric is over joyed that she escaped as well. Echos says that the Section 7 office told her to met them at the bar. Cedric takes her in closer to everyone else as he goes back to being on watch.
Tommy gets up from the bar to go to the toilet with Andrea Walker and Silent Strike fallowing. At the same time Echos of the past walks into the woman’s room.
