Upon reading the article, Algie sucked in a sharp breath. It was official. The whole of London now knew about his plans and the group he was taking with him. If he came back with nothing, he would surely be a laughing stock, but if he ventured out too far, he was definitely destined to die.

"Oh, goodness...What have I done?" He muttered behind the his hands.

Mena bit down on an apple as she glanced at the headline as she grabbed some of the newest crime pamphlets which came out that day. She looked up at the paper boy.

"You reckon I can convince muggles this stuff is haunted?" she asked the boy through chewing. He made a comment which made Mena laugh before she gave him his money and went back into the street.

Sep flipped the paper open and scanned the articles before shoveling oatmeal into his mouth. An expedition was about to set off? How fascinating! Egypt, the colonies, islands across the sea. How interesting it must be. Sep wished he could set off with them, but explaining his absence at school to his father would be impossible. Maybe, after he graduated, he could travel like Mr. Stagg. Closing the paper, Sep took another large mouthful of oatmeal, and began to daydream.
