June looked to Catherine and sighed, "This may require an elevated threat condition." June wasn't adverse to putting one into effect, but Catherine winced at the mention of one. "We haven't had that since.." Catherine started to say but then fell silent. Those types of threat levels tended to lead to casualties on both ends; mundane and unseen. "I know, but it may be necessary." The councilor replied, unsure of what would happen this time around. South America had resulted in catastrophic casualties, and the councilor didn't care to repeat it.

"Well there is one way to tell I suppose.." June said after listening to Nadya. "Warden, would you please?" She asked looking to Catherine who would rather be elsewhere. All she had signed up for was to take a teen to the farmers market, and give Laura a day off, not get further tangled up in this Shalafi mess. Catherine had hoped that it would all just pass over, and for once allow her to enjoy her time off. "If your okay with this Nadya, I'm going to ask Catherine to do something of a search.. this will tell us a little more about what's going on with the situation." June said looking over at the teen.

The pair weren't terribly phased by much of what Nadya said, but they were more certainly concerned.

"What kind of a search?" She asked, not certain why a search would need her permission. She didn't really know much of Catherine's abilities. Laura didn't discuss much with her at all. The girl bit her bottom lip and looked to Catherine, then took a deep breath. "I'm probably going to be okay with it, regardless." She admitted, still nervous.

She hoped they didn't hurt her friends. Yeah Kissare had tried to kidnap her, but she didn't have the whole story but she wanted it, needed it. And Makru...okay, maybe he shouldn't have unleashed all that trouble, but that was pretty in character for him too. Makru had always been...less than good.

Now it was June's turn to look mildly uncomfortable. "I don't know how much the fates have told you about this or how much you remember... but there's a veil between worlds. Then normal human world and the metaphysical world of magic ecetera." The councilor started to explain. "Several hundreds, of thousands of years ago magic was common place and strong, now it's not so much. Individuals who were born at the right time, and under the right conditions..." She continued struggling to find an adequate way to explain it.

"What Councilor Blackwelder means to say, is that there are some of us who belong to the veil, are a part of it, possess it within us." Catherine finally said bluntly interrupting her boss. "It's quite complicated." She said with an uncaring shrug as she removed one of the rings on her right hand. "However, I believe I have an idea of what to look for." Catherine added setting the ring aside on the coffee table. She wasn't even going to apologize to June for having figured out how to remove at least one of her restrictions.

This was one that effectively damped any sense of her possessing any sort of power. However once removed, if one was paying attention, it became apparent that there was an inordinate amount of power at her disposal. Reaching out and turning her focus inwards, Catherine began to scan, looking for the holes, tears, or runs in the fabric that would clue her into what might be going on.

Nadya burst into giggles. "Oh! No, the bosses don't tell me anything. I only know what Nadya knew, or for once I guess, what I learned before. Matu was way before the veil." She said, confidently. "Though that explains a lot! I wondered where all the magic went, and why it was so much weaker." The girl beamed, clearly pleased to have an explanation for the phenomena.

The girl smiled to Catherine. "Shalafi...hm. It's possible that there's a rip in the veil where we tucked him away at." She didn't know, not for sure. The girl watched Catherine, not sure what the other was looking for. Still, she could feel the power emanating from Catherine now that had been hidden before.

Catherine would find a long tear in the veil, not far from the edges of Wing City. It was a jagged tear, and near it was a powerful source of magic.

"Well that's helpful.." June commented sarcastically. She and most of the rest of the gods didn't much care for the fates. They were difficult to deal with even on good terms. "But yes... over time the humans grew to take it for granted. Many of them deciding to stray from customs and the old gods. So the veil was put back into place for one final time, and mankind lost all memory of the magic that had been. This was roughly 1500 years ago, and since then there have only been minor rips and snags in it." She explained patiently to Nadya. "Magic.. exists but like you said it's very much so weakened and pale in comparison with what existed before." June said offering the girl a smile. "But, there are a few individuals, like I told you, who are capable of dipping into that vast original wellspring of magic and directing for their own use."

Meanwhile as June explained all of this to Catherine had found the tear in the fabric of the veil. Examining it closer, she could sense the powerful magic source near it. Knitting the fabric back together would be far from easy, especially with how it had been torn in such a jagged and haphazardly fashion.

"Well, that's stupid!" Nadya declared. "Why would they move away from the old gods anyway. They're super powerful, and scary, but if they like you, they're nice!" Nadya smiled. "I got to meet some, as Matu." She gave June a rather amused look, knowing what she did. "None of the gods I used to worship have any worshipers left." She admitted. "And the temples are all broken." She shrugged not certain. "I doubt they still exist, given the lack of followers." She didn't know for sure. She thought back to that life. "Asalluhi was who I worshiped then. Nadya, before I got my memories back, didn't worship anyone."

Given this was a new life, she supposed she could find a new god to worship. "The bosses don't like it when we worship them though. They get huffy." She shrugged and sat back, watching Catherine with some curiosity.

As Catherine watched, a run would appear in the fabric of the veil, rather near where they were. It was small, and narrow, and easily missed, but it was clearly there none-the-less.

"Yes well that is only one reason the old gods are no longer worshipped." June remarked with a shrug. "Some still exist, wrapped up with new names into new pantheons, but over all the world has largely forgotten them." She added without much interest. For now it would be easy to keep Nadya's attention while Catherine worked, but not much longer though. "They're right, you shouldn't worship fate. Nothing ever bodes well for one who does."

The run near the tear concerned Catherine, as it only served to weaken the fabric of the veil, potentially allowing for thinning and other issues to occur. However small it was, she might have missed it had she not spent hours casting her own mind out and across it's surface, learning it's every nuance and varied surface. Unless one could see or sense the veil it was difficult to describe, to some it appeared as a vast web cast over the world, and to others a wall. "There is a very large tear and numerous runs within the fabric." Catherine finally said, her voice filled with frustration and exhaustion as she pulled herself back into the present. "What concerns me most is that they are close to here."

Nadya thought it over. "Maybe on of the greek gods. I like their stories. I like the norse god stories too though." She had time to decide, she thought. It wasn't going to happen right off, after all! The girl watched Catherine and considered something. "...It's been a long time. But, um, I think I can call Pahas here. He'd admit if any of it was caused by him." She could see it happening. After a lifetime of easy access to magic, the veil would have to be frustrating.

The girl considered her offer. "He'd come, and it's not something his dad would notice. His dad never paid attention to songs after all." And it was a song to let Pahas know she was thinking of him. She remembered the words and the tune, if she thought it over.

"Then call him." June said and Catherine nodded in agreement. Between the two of them, if anything were to happen it would be taken care of. But if Nadya were to be believed, then Pahas was the least of their worries, especially if what Catherine had to say about the veil was any indication. "I'll help you if you need it." Catherine added before slipping her ring back on.

Nadya gave the two a bright smile and nodded, then stood and began to sing. "Strange little bird, come home to me. Strange little bird, fly fast. Strange little bird, come and greet me, Say hey to Matu, Pahas." she sung, the words a rough translation of what they once were. There was a pause and then her smile split her face.

"He's singing." she said, and her eyes closed, as she swayed to a tune she could hear. After a moment she stopped and looked to the door, as if entranced. The teen began to walk towards it, longing clear on her face. "Pahas Bel, the youngest son, father to many, husband to one, come little bird, strange as you are. Matumaini awaits." Her eyes on the door, she waited patiently. "He's coming." She assured the two.

Catherine and June looked at each other again, slightly concerned for where this might be going. While both had never worked extensively with the other, they encountered one enough often enough to have some small level of comfort with the other. "She's loosing it.." Catherine said leaning over and whispering to the other woman. "And I would know..." She added as she crossed her arms back over her chest expectantly.

"Hush and give the girl credit for her honesty, and willingness to try." June said to Catherine with an annoyed look. The two still would butt heads occasionally, and much of that seemed to stem from the distrust Catherine held for the Council, with June being no exception to that. "Thank you Nadya." June then said to the teen with a smile.

Nadya turned her head and stuck her tongue out at Catherine, having heard the comment. There was a knock on the door a moment later and the teen crossed her arms and looked entirely too smug. She knew exactly who was on the other side of the door, though he was being incredibly polite. "Should I go ahead and get the door? Though it's not my house...."

On the other side of the door stood Pahas, dressed in jeans and dark blue sweater, his hair sticking up wildly. a wide smile on his face. Still, he knew better than to enter into another's territory. And just because Matu had called for him didn't mean that this was her home. Who knew what his clever wife looked like this time?

"No, you wait here." Catherine said as she crossed over to open the door. "The wards.. work in a certain way." She added without much explanation, meaning that only those who she'd listed as allowed to pass could enter without invitation. Catherine didn't want to explain how things were done, or really open either of them up to something less than friendly.

Opening the door, she looked Pahas up and down with an appraising glance before speaking. "You might as well come in." Catherine said plainly.

Pahas smiled and stepped inside. "Thank you. Your home is lovely. And I rather like your wards. From what I say they are well formed." He was impressed by him. Catherine didn't keep his attention however. His eyes fell on Nadya and he was by her side in an instant, though he hesitated at her youth and simply hugged her close to him.

Nadya returned the hug whole heartedly and held him close, hiding her face against his chest for a moment or so. "You're safe. Alam hasn't gotten to you yet?" The girl didn't want to let go, but did so briefly. Her once husband smiled down to her.

"Not yet, though he has Makru and Kissare. Now, introduce me to your friends." He teased. "I hate to be the only one not knowing who everyone is, after all." He smiled to June and Catherine, largely still thrilled simply to see Matu.

"Of course! This is June, and Catherine." She introduced both in turn, indicating who was who with an open palm. "And I go by Nadya now. This body is only 13 also, so we should probably not be as lovey dovey as we once were." It was frowned upon in todays world, she knew.

Catherine simply nodded and June offered the man a charming smile. "How was your cake?" June asked mischievously. She had a knack for remembering people, and generally took full advantage of it. "Because, I hear their carrot cake is quite good, but have yet to try it." June added. The small shop had become a have of respite from the chaos of the Council, Kasimir generally didn't eat, Alexander lived off coffee and nothing else, and Agathon was prickly enough to avoid communal meals.

"There will be plenty of time to reminisce and wool gather later. What's most important right now is there is a sizeable hole in the veil along with several smaller ones accompanying it." Catherine finally spoke, her tone not without some amount of apathy.

Pahas grinned at June, recognizing her now. "It was delicious, thank you. Though I believe you lied about the lack of a herbalist in the city." Not that he could blame her. A strange magician looking for a magic shop was an odd occurrence. He likely would have misled the stranger too. "If it's alright with her guardians, I will probably take Matu, excuse me, Nadya there sometime soon." Nadya grinned at him, rather liking that idea.

"If it isn't alright, I promise to sneak out." She offered him a smile, and he raised an eyebrow at this idea.

"And then I'll return you right back to them. How often have we discussed the value of rules and why you should follow them? I am a stranger to your family here Nadya. I will not push their boundaries because at one point, in another life, you were my wife. You are, as you said, currently 13."

Still, the veil, the abomination that it was, was the topic of conversation. He considered what he had learned of it since waking. "While I find the veil to be an abomination, against nature itself, from what I have seen, I can make a few guesses. How Alam was sealed likely tore the veil when it was undone. It would have taken a great deal of magic after all." More than most had and that was the simple truth. "At least one of the runs is my own fault. Another might be Kissare's. We're both unfamiliar with it, and I admit to seeing how far I could push the damned thing. Sare would have done the same."

"Yes, I'll admit it I lied.. but honestly it's unusual to have a magician asking for a herbalist or magic shop in general. Most practitioners don't tend to go poking around asking in cake shops either." June replied with a nod. The unseen community here was small, but fairly tight knit when it came down to it. For an outsider to simply start asking questions raised a lot of red flags with them, and they like anyone else would be prone to giving false information if it would make the potential threat go away. "As far as taking her.. neither of us is her defacto guardian. That would be the Warden here's niece." June explained. Many of them built families in their own way, especially when children of their own were something that they would have never been blessed with. So it wasn't uncommon for some individuals to take in those less fortunate, and in need of some amount of assistance. "However, I doubt neither one of us would mind if you took her sometime."

But, all things aside, at least Pahas was admitting some hand in what had happened. "Most of us aren't a fan of the veil and the restrictions it imposes on many..." Catherine started to say thinking for a moment, her mind wandering back to what she had been told about the veil itself. "It was either that or Gaia and Chronus would allow mankind to destroy itself. You'd be surprised at what mankind has done to itself with sufficient access to magic and means." Catherine continued thoughtfully. "Either way.. your right it will take a significant amount of magic to repair, and I suspect those tears are what allowed Alam through."

"I'll be sure to check with the warden's niece then...regardless of what Nadya wants." Nadya crossed her arms and pouted at this, slumping in her seat. She knew he had her number, but ti was still annoying to be called out. The man considered the veil and the repercussions. "Alam's released triggered the fail safes that woke me and my brothers. Unfortunately, Makru and Kissare are more easily commanded by him." He could admit that. "It has to do with how we were made. Though I am, physically, the weakest, magically I am the strongest, and my will is a match for Alam's." He wasn't about to fall under his father's spell again.

"I will, of course, contribute to fixing the veil. It is partially my own fault, after all." Still, he wondered how the spells on Alam failed. He'd have to look closer to find it out.

Nadya bite her bottom lip and looked around. "I'll help too." she promised. "I don't know how much I can do as Nadya, but I can still try." She was determined to help, and that was the truth.
