Clearing her throat, Alex states, "I would not say that we spirited her
away but that she decided to stow away. We did not find out that she was
with us until it is too late." (ooc: It has been years since that scene
so if I am incorrect, please correct me.)
"I am not sure of all of the specifics on why Mrrlyn wish to hold Ted,"
she continues. "The wizard said it was a security matter." The tone of
her voice shows a little bit of skepticism.
