Shayliss is shocked to find the group, and even more surprised to find Padric is with them of all places. She demands to know what he’s doing there, and why he didn’t send Nightingale back to Elenia.
Padric explains that he met up with her in Rhamsted, and he could tell she would need help, so he decided to come along.
Nightingale asks how Shayliss was able to find them, and Shayliss explains that she sent a crew to help in Hyde, but when they’d arrived they discovered Nightingale and her friends had already been there. She’d been following them ever since.
