    From the desk of Maya Demeter:

    Maya sat in the oddly formed chair, meant for someone with wings. She
    stared at the vials in front of her. It had been a week since the gargoyle
    scientists were informed of her desire to work with them. They were most
    gracious, allowing her access to everything she needed. This made her
    wonder what Gorn was trying to do to her. He seemed very bitter at their
    last meeting, like he didn’t want to be there but even more then that. She
    just couldn’t quite put her finger on it.

    She understood he was in commerce and much of what she said was probably
    very boring to him. She felt the same way when he began talking of trades
    and money influx. But still the queens had deemed they worked together.

    Maya shook her head to clear it and got back to the vials in front of her.
    They were quite the conundrum. The samples were incredibly poisonous, but

    insignia. She took it from him and slowly unrolled the scroll

    Maya sat and stared at the scroll for a few moments then turned to the

    “I must go back to my queen,” she told them. “There seems to be a problem
    in my homeland that may be related to this one here.”

    She quickly told the scientist about the turkeys and the reports involving
    them. The scientist nodded a wished her well.

    “I shall return as soon as I have completed my reports there.”

    Maya gathered her things and followed the messenger out the door. “I am to
    escort you back to the castle M’Lady.” Maya nodded and followed the man.
