"I'm sure we won't have to stay too late tonight," I'ent responded. "But letting them sleep another Candlemark won't put us past dusk anyway."
I'ent sat crosslegged on the blanket before Locke then took a moment to gather his thoughts. He didn't know if Locke or the Reaper knew anything about Cehrazad or her half sister but he figured Locke would tell him if he did, once he learned what this was all about.
"Not all that long ago while I was out practicing some of the stuff you taught me I ran into one of the riders who Impressed same clutch I did. We talked some and as it turned out she had a skill I wanted to learn, how to scale and climb buildings and stuff, something I never really knew how to do. I expect you could have taught me that too but I thought at the time why not learn that skill from somebody else so I'm not taking up all of your free time. Anyway she agreed to do it but asked I check up on her sister once in awhile, make sure she's safe. You see, the rider's from the Bottoms like we are and she was in a trade like you and Kent where. Anyway, she manage to find a family to take care of her baby sister but worries she may be kidnapped or harmed, especialy with those slaver rings you've been working to take down. Anyway, I didn't mention anything about you or The Reaper or even that I heard about those Slave Rings...didn't think it would be wise to do so. But anyway, I figure I should go check up on the girl soon, before Cehrazad thinks I am going back on my part of the deal. I wanted to know if you heard of her or not."
