"Thank you, Evans."

Glancing it over I find that it is from Saitou. The contents of it make me frown however.

What organization is this "priest" supposed to be a representative of, I wonder? Lydgate didn't say anything about anyone else being involved in this. And he would have said something if he knew. The man can't keep his mouth shut about anything.

If someone is hiding things from us, it would be that Fisk fellow from the Mayor's office. Not that he seemed to be the particularly well-informed sort and he struck me as being sincere enough when we spoke. Why would he ask us to get involved, then send someone to scare us away anyway? It seems too absurd to seriously consider.

So perhaps this is in response to last night's disaster? Could they have decided to replace us because of that? No. That doesn't seem right either. They would have informed us of the matter some other way, rather than sending this... "priest" to threaten us.

Then something really puzzling occurs to me. Why did they threaten us through Saitou anyway? I'll have to talk to him as soon as I can arrange it and find out the full details it seems. I want to know more about what happened in during that incident with the carriage anyway.

Something about the driver's story makes me want to shudder. Not that I am anymore inclinded to believe that the dog has "six eyes" than Saitou, especially after having seen it for myself, but there is a part of me that almost wants to. I remember the riddles it presented to myself and Lydgate last night and almost I can sympathize with the man. And those red eyes... The nearest thing to them I can think of is hellfire. Those eyes of hellfire that a part of me hopes to never see again...

Then I chide myself for being a fool. It's just a dog of course. Saitou would think me as disgusting as that weakling carriage-driver right about now. I chuckle to myself as I imagine what his expression would be. And he would be right, too. I'm being a fool now.

At any rate it seems I'll be going out again today. I want answers. NOW.

Then I read the last part of the letter. So he wants me to get a message to Yag...No, Rosvear-san? That is not a problem. I should check in on her anyway.

But I wonder what sort of "business" came up? I frown again and wonder exactly what he has gotten himself involved in. Not that it is any of my business. I sigh and tuck the letter away.
