[Early in the morning on July 5th, after Jane Smith's uncharacteristic behavior was put to an end, were someone to go on a walk throughout the park, they might come across an unusual sight.

Jane Smith is sitting on a park bench hidden somewhere between the trees. Or at least, at a glance it appears to be her, but at second glance, she doesn't look exactly the same. Her features are younger, more a 24 year old girl than a 30 year old mother, and there's something less perfect and put together in her looks.

Maybe this time, it's Samantha Achewood, the girl Jane Smith used to be, sitting by herself. She appears perfectly contented and peaceful with her eyes closed, perhaps napping. But on closer inspection, she isn't breathing and she has no pulse, and her body is cold and lifeless to the touch.

There's no cause of death to find here. Samantha simply went to sleep and will never wake up.

But that isn't the only surprising thing one might notice about Mayfield today. No matter where you look or what you might do, Officer Grady is nowhere to be found.]

[Tarvek has been pacing the streets of Mayfield after talking with Jane/Samantha and overhearing her and Grady after following her, using all his skills to go unnoticed in the shadows. On encountering Harry Potter rushing from the park, Tarvek knew he had to go back.]

[He's a doctor -- among other skills -- and he takes his time examining this strange, not-Jane un-drone. She is clearly not alive...and, just as clearly, is altered from her former physical state. He scowls. There must be some logic to this... Why was her former body the clearly synthetic one? Why is the body here now so clearly not one of the bland, impersonal drones? And while Samantha/Jane is dead here -- where is here, and what does "dead" mean?]

[He scowls more deeply, and, with smooth agility leaps, grabs a limb of a nearby tree, and quietly disappears up into the branches, to watch and listen as other denizens of Mayfield come to pay their respects. He will wait as long as there is anything left to see -- or as long as Mayfield allows him to wait. He's quiet, and patient, and persistent, and he's determined to understand -- no matter how long it takes.]
