[OOC: continued from Lyra]

A day had passed and the dark-brown-and-white speckled owl was back, this time under equally strict orders to do the opposite thing and just dump his letter outside the addresseeís door. Mister Sprockets was confused by this change of heart, but not bothered. It was less work for him! In fact, he was so unbothered that he didnít even fly up to the proper room door and instead just dropped it in the middle of the Cetus girlsí staircase. Her name was written on the outside, fortunately face-up, so it should get to the right person. Probably. Meh.

Folded inside the letter was the same, now well-creased, letter with the broken green wax seal. Its recipient had decided she no longer needed it and that, optimistically, it might have better use with its writer, or more realistically, it would just be tossed out at that end instead of at hers.

Unlike last time, her signature was firm, although the y still kept its childish curly tail.
