"Oh," Clemence said, unsure how else to respond to that.

Ferris nodded. "Okay. That seems like a good plan, then."

"Okay, so you guys work on getting them down here," Andrew said, and turned to Clemence. "Do you wanna try tracking him down?" he asked, frowning slightly as he concentrated again. He was still just getting north, though, and he wasn't even sure if that was right. "I'm not getting anything specific."

Clemence chewed on her lip, concentrating. Or trying to. She didn't really know what she was supposed to do.
"I, um, I think we should head north," she said, rubbing her arm.

Andrew nodded, subconsciously copying the motion. "Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Do you feel it's true north?"

Cole watched them curiously. It was a little creept, if he was being honest, but it apparently was helpful now.

Clemence shook her head. "No. I can't pinpoint exactly where it is, just like...generally, we should go that way," she said with a nod.

Andrew nodded once. "Okay. We'll probably know more once we get closer."

Sunny was up and at the door before he was even finished talking. "All right then, let's head out." We've wasted enough time, and Chris doesn't have that much to spare.

"Someone's gonna get the fish, though, yeah?" Cole asked, glancing around at everyone.

"Yeah, I'll get them and meet you guys," Ferris offered.

Clemence nodded, then looked at Andrew. "One of us should go with Ferris so we can figure out where to go in case we lose service or something. I don't know where we're headed, so," she shrugged.

Andrew nodded, smiling softly. "Yeah, I agree. It's a good plan."

"Cool. Okay. Sunny, I'm guessing you want to go right now. Uh, Cole?" She turned to him. "Wanna head toward Chris?"

"Yeah, we've gotta go now," Sunny insisted, her hand on the doorknob. They had a direction and a way to find Chris; she wasn't going to leave him in danger any longer.

Cole nodded. "Yeah, I can do that. Be safe, okay?" he said, amd leaned in to kiss her cheek before he could stop himself.

Clemence tensed for a moment and then relaxed, smiling quickly at him before nodding at the door. "Go, go," she said.

Ferris grabbed his keys and headed out, nudging Sunny gently.

Sunny nodded when Ferris nudged her and quickly followed him out the door. She knew he could probably feel what she felt, and part of her tried not to dwell on it so she wouldn't drive him crazy - but it was also partly a relief, for someone to understand her mindset without her needing to say or do anything.

Cole turned bright red and took a step back when he realized what he'd done. "Sorry, I - sorry," he sputtered out, and headed outside as quickly as he could.

Clemence looked over at Andrew a bit helplessly, then shook her head. "I'll go with Ferris," she said and then went out the door quickly.

Ferris waited for Clemence, then nodded once to Sunny with a reassuring smile before he went off to go get Cato and Alec.

"So that leaves me with Cole and Sunny. See you soon." Andrew smiled in an easy going, friendly way, and cast one last look at Ferris before going with Cole and Sunny to the lot.

(Okay were you wanting to play out everyone tracking the witches down or just fast forward to them getting there? I don't mind either way.)
