Hedda spoke to the children.

"Did either of you spot a key?  Perhaps on the servant who let us in?"

"I don't think so," Alexander said. "Maybe it's in the monster's room."

"I'd better go run and check, then," said Hedda, and she did just that.

You notice something metallic in the pile of ashes on the floor.

Hedda picked it up, and, assuming it was a key, headed to the vault to open it.

Taking the key back, it fits easily into the vault door and opens it. Inside are several pouches and papers.

Hedda gathered them all.  The papers might make interesting reading for the road, or might be useful in other ways-- mopping up blood, for example.

"Now, children, back to the wagon," she said.

"All right, children!" said Hedda, perhaps oddly cheerful.  "I'm sorry that the last client wasn't a good opportunity to show you the physician's craft, but at least we did get paid for our trouble.  Now, let's get back on the road!"

As she went, she took the time to examine what she'd gained from the vault.

There were a pair of deeds to a mine and a large amount of land to the north. There was also a series of letters between the old man and someone name Lilth. The pouch was filled with gemstones and jewelry.

"Not a bad day's profits," said Hedda, philosophically.  "Children!  Good news!  If the road gets too hard, we might be able to retire into wealth someday!"

"Well, it depends," said Hedda.  "If these documents are genuine, they are the title to some land.  But whether that title would be honored?  That is another matter."

"That's amazing!" Alexander said.

"Maybe you could buy us a home now and wait until you are finish to come back," Mariel said. "This is too dangerous for us."

Hedda considered this.

"...Yes," she said.  "That probably would be wise.  You'll need guards, though."

"I wish I could do more," sighed Hedda.  "Still, continuing the search for your family will do you both good, I hope."

"I think there was some to the north?" Mariel said.

"Oh, the aunt mother never really talked about?" Alexander asked. "I remember now."

"We should look for her while we go North, then," said Hedda.  "I do hope to find your parents, though."

...She didn't know if she'd find them alive, however.
