Anduv was walking surreptitiously through a patch of the Haunted Woods. He despised taking spur-of-the-moment shortcuts; they were messy and tended to lead to more trouble than they were worth. Still, he had no other choice. The task on paw was urgent. The Duchess had called an immediate meeting with the most elite members and demanded that they travel as secretively as possible. He first set out on one of the main paths of the Woods, which was his original plan. But after several steps he heard some footsteps and rustling behind him and improvised a new route to avoid whatever was tailing him.
Not a mile passed before he realized he was running late. He picked up his pace and continued on his way. It was nearing midnight, and the journey was silent except for the chirping of moaches and the soft hootings of whoots. It went on like this for a while, until suddenly - he heard a rustling nearby. Not knowing what it was, he stopped and analyzed the surroundings, a little frightened but completely alert. "Maybe it's something harmless, like a batterfly crawling around in a bush", he thought to himself . . . he looked around multiple times but nothing seemed to be there. Hoping that it was simply his imagination, he took a deep breath and turned around to started to head forward again. But just as he turned his head, he caught in the corner of his eye what appeared to be a flash of vivid maroon fur and a pair of bright golden eyes . . .
After the stressful journey, Anduv finally arrived at the meeting house, a small abandoned cottage tucked inside a very dense part of the Woods, rarely visited by others. He walked up to the door and knocked seven times. Someone inside opened the tiny hatch on the door and asked him, "Do you have the letter?" Anduv reached into his coat pocket, where he had put it, but something was wrong. He pulled out of the pocket not the letter the Duchess had sent him, but a strange scrap of paper. On it was scrawled in red ink, "Thanks for the info. Sincerely, Mr. Grimmauldie, Agent of the Anti-Sway."
