Chapter 3: Starting the Search Anew
'Well, that wasn't half bad,' Dresden thought, still a bit weirded out by the way these wizards traveled. 'Though, I'd take apparating to port key any day. Really wish we could move around that way, would have gotten me out some really tough jams recently,' he mused.
"You alright, Dresden?" Harry asked, solicitously, noting the American wizard seemed still a bit out of it at the moment.
"Hmm, oh sure, just wool gathering while my mind caught up with my stomach," Dresden said inanely.
Harry smiled briefly. "Okay, we're in our hotel room. Do we try and get the lab supervisor out now or..."
Dresden shook his head both to say no and to clear his still fuzzy head. "Far too busy during the day...night time is a lighter staff and hopefully easier to draw the person we need out. However, I need to do a recon so I can get a name and leave a message which will make our job easier later tonight.
"Good idea, except you just told us you couldn't

"If more outsiders had been aware of our war and were asked to come to our aid, we could have avoided years of suffering and death. NO! I refuse to play that game again," he spat, a well of magic filled the room for a moment.
