You note that there is a double circle drawn in chalk around the phrase "comme te voux" (as you wish) on a low brick that occassional passers by cast a glance down at. And then up at a roof beam with some scratches on it.

Once he notices the marked brick (from Mancini's and Oly's attention), Ardenas will rub his shoe heel against it while the others follow those upward glances.

The faint scratches and hash marks seem to be a map of sorts, suggestions of which turns to make.

"With Dame Kalima in tow, won't these reprobates be surprised..."
Grimaldi mused aloud, not trying to hide his glee for the carnage he assumes is coming, around the bend...

Mancini motions for Grimaldi to lower his voice. "Who knows if these sowers of chaos have spies or other ways of listening in our realm. The whole point of our rescuing our friend was to have an ace up our sleeves. Please don't go broadcasting our hand prematurely, Grimaldi."

Peering around the next corner, you see a woman sweeping in front of her stoop, and some boys throwing rocks at a bucket. The woman's  eyes go wide as the flaming aura of Kalima starts to show around the corner, and calls the children to go inside.

"Don't be disturbed on our account, lady. We're just passing through. Look well, for it isn't everyday, one lays eyes upon a celestial. We're on a task of goodwill, so let your children play. We strive for them, as well."
Grimaldi smiled disarmingly.

Aoife will be with Kalima and follow those better at tracking...for now.

"My methods are less...subtle. More along the lines of your new friend, I suspect."

He had stayed back throughout the ceremony watching in a fascinated manner, and was very curious to see the newcomer in action...

"It may be that, when they see the celestial with us, all ploys of innocence will be foiled. The demonic know their own, and they certainly know who their mortal foes are... It is hard to deceive the princes and princesses of lies."

As you make the next turn, you notice a puddle of water reflecting a sign on a shuttered tavern.

The reflection shows the tavern full of rowdy drunken folk, in the late evening...you can almost make out the name on the sign...

"They've taken up in a tavern, this time? *sigh* this is going to complicate matters, and lead to excessive collateral damages, methinks. It cannot be helped.."
