Aha! Looks like we finally get to see some action! Or investigation, at least, which can be just as exciting. Love the humor in this one too… xD And it looks like we don’t have too much information on Blah Blah’s murder yet, but I’m starting to wonder if the main conflict of this novel will be somehow related to the murderer (if it really was a person— perhaps it’s a strange phenomenon? or could it possibly even be… a ruptured shadow behind it all?? >.>). Anyhow, I enjoyed this chapter part! ^^
Okay, so I was trying to solve this anagram (because of course it’s an anagram! :]), but I could only come up with “sour my site” or “i messy rout”… So I cheated a bit and used an online anagram solver… And as Lim says, this place is definitely very mysterious.
where it passed enough red flag checks to be relayed to us
Hmm… now what could those red flag checks be? I’d actually really like to know. 0.0 How does this agency determine what’s suspicious enough to be looked into?
Of course, they did send us a report on their findings, which basically amounted to the fact that magic or some form of unnatural force was used in this killing and that it was clearly done on purpose.”
Ooh, alright, so I guess they investigate if magic or a force is involved… That seems like a lot of work. How are they able to detect magic? Or do they just use reasoning and report the incident if something seems fishy? (I’d guess there are a lot of fishy incidents, though, so hopefully they have some efficient way to narrow it down.)
Safi reached out a hand to Serafina. “Truce then. We both messed up.” Serafina masked a lock of shock with needle like precision as she took Safi’s hand. “I can accept that.”
Hm hm, now that was an interesting interaction between these two. I’m not quite sure how to interpret it. Since this is from Anna’s point of view, I don’t really know whether either of them have any harsh feelings towards the other, or just feels embarrassed, or something else… I’m hopeful about the fact that they quickly reached peace, though! Maybe this is the start of them growing closer?
“It says quite clearly Vionan Blogh Blau.”
XD Poor guy… Von Blah Blah is definitely easier to remember.
That’s the Konivian system so 4th of Argian 4016 is roughly the 3rd of December 1987 or thereabouts.
I was a bit confused here. Is the site on another planet that uses the Konivian system? Or does the agency use that system? 1987 and Wi-Fi make me think the village is on Earth, except Wi-Fi hadn’t been invented by then, so perhaps it’s some kind of internet service the agents have?? Yeah, so I’d appreciate some clarification here, aha.
“The membership,” said Sally,
Hm? Membership in what? 0.0 Interesting… guess I’ll have to read on to find out! C:
