Excerpt from the journal of Monoc Securities consultant Kaden Nuru, with supplemental material: one annotated map of Salvador, Brazil.

Day 9:

It appears my concerns were not unfounded. Today, while my continuing research on behalf of the Enclave, I found another instance of seemingly spontaneous ley line formation in Salvador Brazil, the consequences of which could be catastrophic. In my lessons back home, I learned it is natural for the roots of the Great Mother to grow and change.

Not like this though. It appears to be of some design I have not yet to fathomed. I must consult others in this, especially my dear friend Alexandre. but after everything we have been through over the last few years I feel he needs some time alone, our new friends and enemies take quite the toll. But we must press on.

My hope is that by keeping a journal of these discoveries I might piece this puzzle together, with my own eyes this time. What was it Nadira used to say back home? ‘You may be blind but you have a choice to not be stupid’.

Ha, I miss her insight. Despite how we left things, she was a beacon in a dark time. I wonder what she would think of Kaden Nuru being a consultant for Monoc Securities? Feels like a lifetime ago I was wandering the jungle with her. It’s places like this that reminded me of her, and of home. The heat,  the hustle and bustle, and dark fruits growing just beneath the soil.

Oh, I nearly forgot. I managed to make some acquaintances while investigating the leyline. Seemed to me that they were members of some sort of secret society, but they were unwilling to divulge more. They didn’t seem a trusting lot. Still, we learned much while looking examining an abandoned apartment building that grew and shrank at random (an after effect, I believe, of the new leylines sudden emergence).  There is still much to learn, but I must consult with the spirits first. 

But for now, I must rest. By the grace of the Great Mother I hope my sleep will be dreamless.
