    "You'll have to ask the game runner himself," the bartender tells Dorsard. "His name's Marcello. He lives on 78 Sickle Street. Tell him Kumar told you to ask him about tonight's game."

    "Do you really think we should?" Owl asks her companions. "I don't have much coin to spare."

    "We can discuss what funds we have available on our walk to 78 Sickle St., and what games from Marcello." Irfan includes the information they have now learned to help retain the knowledge. "Thanks Kumar," he nods to the bartender as he slides back the two unused glasses with two silver pieces for the bottle, and places the unopened wine bottle into his backpack.

    "We can always bet against our possessions, Ah think. Ah haven't been in a gamblin' place...hardly ever. Ah like havin' money." Dorsard helpfully suggests.

    "Off we go, then." Owl leads the way out, and waits for her classmates to join her. "So, we've confirmed that Eshan was here, he was apparently drunk, and he was gambling. Let's go talk to Marcello and see if he what he can tell us about the game. We might have to actually participate if we want to learn more about the guy that fleeced rat-boy."

    Dorsard bounces his coin purse for a moment inside his vest and nods to himself."Ah have some gold that Ah can use tah bet, but Ah won't be usin' too much. Ah need it for expenses, and reagents. Very expensive you know."

    Sickle Street, 10:00 AM
    78 Sickle Street is a skinny, two story white brick house. Red and yellow hibiscus flowers are painted on the frames of the doors and windows. The door itself is a vivid red and has a big golden knocker shaped like a hummingbird. A verdant lawn stretches out about forty feet in front of the house, with a white pebble walkway leading up to the door.

    Owl takes a deep breath and lets it out slowly before reaching for the knocker. She raps firmly but not too loudly, in case Marcello is still asleep.

    Irfan remains quiet regarding what they've learned, and reserving judgement on the details. Their investigation is still underway. "I wonder how or if Marcello is connected to Ricardo." Quiet overtakes him again as he stands beside his classmates waiting for a responds to the door knocker.
