Bellena rose early that morning as she frequently did. After preparing herself and getting her affairs for the day in order, she walked down the hallway to the door of her friend. She wanted to have a bit of a discussion with Ruqqayah as she had been informed that Mahasin had asked Ruqqayah to help find the Hawethorne treasure as well.

She knocked at the door and waited patiently for a reply.

Tap, tap, tap. The sound brought Ruqqayah out of the sleep she had only recently lay down for. She blinked a few times and called out groggily, "Sorry, just a moment! I'll be right there!"

Rising from bed, she pulled a simple dress over her head and glanced at herself, annoyed with her hair. It would take way too long to braid and wrap. So she took a long veil and tied a slender band around it to keep it in place, draping it forward over her shoulders to cover her hair. Finally, she opened the door to welcome Bellena. "Oh, Lella Bell'eza, good morning. Please, come in. Would you like some coffee brought in?"

Ruqqayah was greeted with a bright smile, "Sure! I'm sorry if I woke you. I tend to be an early riser, so sorry if I disturbed you."

" No, no, not at all, " she replied as she sent someone off for coffee. "I tend to be an early riser too, normally. Please, make yourself at home."

Bellena walked in and found a seat, "I wanted to talk to you about something if that was alright my dear."

She smiled and crossed her legs in her chair, "I have been working on the behalf of Lella Mahasin for the past few weeks trying to locate the Unicorn treasure that is supposedly here on the island... and heard that you too had been asked to look into it."

"Of course," she agreed, finding a seat across from her. "Ah yes... I wasn't able to find as much success in that as I would like. I suppose we'd have to look for outside help eventually." Her eyes dropped and she shook her head before looking up again. "Were you able to have more success?"

"Somewhat... the Shiek Al-Hattar was commissioned by important individuals in the clan to look into retrieving the treasure. I've tried to track down what I can and let him and Lella Mahasin know what we've found.
I was wondering if there was anything you had come across yet too?

She tensed a little, hearing the name of Shiek al-Hattar. "I'm afraid I haven't, myself... but perhaps two head might be better than one with figuring out more. I would like to help."

She noticed the wince but paid it little heed, “The Explorers have found a portion of the map left behind. It appears there are four pieces we are looking for.”

She nodded. "Yes... Mahasin mentioned the four pieces of the map, or four separate maps, and how Archibald Dunfrey made a copy of it, but the copied map was missing from his journal, torn out. If just the one portion was found, that wouldn't be much to go on... but I would hesitate to guess, not having seen it."

Bellena paused for a moment and then asked, "What is your opinion of the Explorer's my dear... and what do you think of their interest in finding the treasure?"

She pressed her lips together. "It depends on the individual, on what I think of them. I haven't formed an opinion on the Explorers as a whole yet." She paused. "Regarding finding the treasure... I would prefer if one of us found it. I'm not sure if all of the Explorers would fully understand the significance."

She nodded, "Well my dear... we in fact have a bit of a head start on it. I found the copy of Dunfrey's map... and deciphered part of the code for it."

Ruqqayah let out a soft breath. "I'm glad to hear it. Is there any help I can provide?"

"In short? We need a new chain to follow... some thread to pull on... Find any people who may know anything and dig deeper." She replied.

"I need to know what's already know from what you've found to try and figure out a new angle," she notes. "Contacts... Well, you can imagine my hesitance to make myself too known."

"My research would suggest that moreso than a 'map'... it is a type of coding mechanism that reveals an important message, as well as perhaps a location. The words I have speak of something about torn veils, great spiders and green blessings."

"If I were to guess, I would say it's talking about somewhere in the island's interior, given the spider attacks and the talk of the strange dreams people have been having with the fog," she muses. "So, I suppose that's a potential avenue. But you probably assessed that already."

"That's possible... I came across a being in the islands in the mist. A snake-woman, like the ancient tales tell of those who fought he Ashalan. She mentioned somethings about veils being torn... her skin was green... and other members of our party mentioned something about spider webs... I'm not entirely sure how it all fits together. I'm assuming its something that Hawethorne and his crew developed some knowledge of... tracking down where they all met their end seems like the best venue up until now."

A soft sigh to herself. "That makes sense. It seems like I have little to offer, but I hope you'll keep me aware of what's going on."
