Andrew nodded and walked with after making sure the others were coming.

Sunny followed behind and buried her hands in her jacket's pockets. She was anxious as to how Chris would react to them coming after him again.

Clemence took a few breaths and began walking back toward the trees, where she felt the most drawn.

"Can you guys tell how far away he went?" Sunny asked, curious.

Andrew nodded. "Usually, yeah. I don't think he's too far."

Clemence nodded, and as if on a cue there was a break in the trees where it seemed a small group of people was just ahead.

"I don't like this," Cole muttered, just to make sure his opinion was heard.

(Sorry!! Life has been nutsos)

Clemence looked back at Cole with a sympathetic smile, but didn't say anything as she turned back to walk quietly toward the group.

"...let them have him," one of the members was saying. It was a woman's voice, so this was the coven again. Chris was standing off to the side, arms crossed over his chest as he glared at the ground, clearly not listening to whatever the women were talking about.

Cole managed a small, bitter smile as they continued on. He soon spotted Chris and crouched down to avoid being seen by the coven.

"You're sure he's ready for that?" another witch asked, furrowing her brows.

"It looks like it," the first woman said, turning to look Chris over. He seemed to shrink into himself under her gaze.

Sunny frowned at that, her nervous lip biting habit taking over. Ready for what? And why did Chris look so nervous about it?

The second woman looked over Chris, as well, then turned back to the first. "And their interactions will go as planned?"

"The first one did, didn't it?" The woman smiled a bit and tapped her fingers against her thigh. Then she paused and turned, frowning as she scanned the surrounding area.

Clemence held her breath as the woman seemed to be looking for them. What did they have planned?

The second woman turned and looked around the woods, frowning. "Do you see something?"

Cole pushed Clemence behind him without thinking, and hoped the witch hadn't seen him do it.

Sunny shrunk down and closed her eyes.

The woman frowned, but turned to the other and shook her head. "No, but we should head out," she suggested and started walking.

Chris looked around with a frown before following the woman.

Clemence watched them leave over Cole's shoulder, trying her best not to be annoyed that he'd pushed her behind him.

The second woman nodded and took up the rear behind Chris.

Sunny opened her eyes and looked around at everyone. "Are they gone?" she mouthed to them.

Cole nodded. "Yeah, they left," he said softly.

Clemence let out the breath she'd been holding and slowly stood up. "It sounds like they're letting him go," she said, frowning.

"Yeah, but why?" Ferris asked, nervously fiddling with the hem of his shirt.

"It sounds like they have a plan. They're only letting him go because they want him to do something to us," Andrew pointed out.

Sunny frowned, frustrated. "But what? What's their end game?"
