Account - The Unfortunate Ormwood Babysitter - Page 2

Lucy Chambers is found, something I had not expected to be able to say so soon. However, this does not end my involvement in the matters. We will turn the reincarnating spirit over to VASCU, of course, most likely with minimal explanation as to their nature, but there remains the matter of the person who first sent the creature to the Chambers' door. We have chosen between us to investigate further but even without that consensus I would have to face this task. There is an account that must be balanced.
