The group headed back to Adeline Walker‘s house to retrieve Striker’s Journal. When they got there, however, they discovered that a tree that mysteriously fallen in Adeline’s backyard, crushing her room. Remembering that her drunken father had passed out in his La-Z-Boy in the living room again, the group looked for him. Gwendalyn Bhaelus, still in lupus form, picked up his scent as well as tracks leading out the front door and away from the house. The group then searched the wreckage for the Journal, eventually finding it under the fallen tree. Once the book was found, Barry Gretzky, lwas able to change back into homid form by relaxing and imagining himself as he was. He then left the other two to read the Journal while he checked on the status of the The Turtle Shell Diner and his mother who was working there. As he approached the Diner, he found that the entire police force was there interviewing people and he decided to head back to his house and leave his mother a note telling her that he was OK. Just before heading back to Adeline’s house he took Kip‘s wallet with him. Adeline and Gwen decided to wait for Barry’s return before reading the Journal, which they did upon his return. After reading the journal, Adeline decided to try to change to homid form by screaming in an attempt to release her Rage. This only resulted in Johanna Bruge coming from around the corner of the trailer, shushing Adeline. Once the character’s released that Johanna could see them as Garou, they wanted to know why she wasn’t afraid. Johanna explained that she was Kin and tasked with watching Adeline and her brothers for their possible First Change, by Adeline’s mother, Rends-The-Shadows. Gwen and Adeline immediately distrusted her and demanded to know why she hadn’t helped Adeline and her family after her mother abandoned her. or at least warned Adeline that she may change. Johanna, not being well schooled herself, tried her best to explain Garou society, The Triad and Rends-The-Shadow’s past. Realizing that she wasn’t explaining things as well as they could be and sensing growing hostility towards herself, Johanna suggested that the new cubs travel in wolf form to Halifax in order to meet up with the Bone Gnawers and other Garou at the Starred Walls Caern and hopefully get more satisfactory answers. johanna was then able to coach Adeline and Barry in changing into lupus form in order to make it to Halifax easier and quicker. The three new cubs then decide to call it a night sleep for a while and head out the following day.
