That certainly did pay off. They had a name, they had activity that absolutely proved that they were using Meister for something, and they even had a location...

"North Africa? Man, why's it always Africa with these guys?"

"Was it Africa, last time? I still think it might have been Cleveland."

Small quibbles aside, they had at least a good guess as to where Meister might be. If, by good guess, you meant an entire continent, and a very large one. But since that was only one out of seven, it did narrow it down somewhat... If he was actually there.

They really needed a way to be sure.

"...Are you sure, Mr. Merkel?" Scandal had driven him out to the Zechlins' house, and she looked, if not worried, then slightly concerned. He had to admit, he was feeling unaccountably anxious himself.

"Of course! Just because we haven't spoken since all that mess doesn't mean we can't ask an old friend for help. Why, I'd be remiss if I didn't seek out her expertise."

"If you say so."

He did say so.

He said as much to Lori, who was definitely shocked to see them -- shocked, and awkward. In fact, he didn't actually say as much to Lori until after some awkward silence and back-and-forth between them. When she heard that they needed her help, she was hesitant, but eventually... well, something made her agree, though he'd begun to think she might not. He wasn't really sure why.

"But you don't know where this guy is? Trying to find Blake last time, it was... big. Really big. I don't know how else to describe it."

"Yes, I thought of that." Ragdoll pulled out Billy's iPod, offering it to Lori. "Here. This belongs to him. He hardly goes anywhere without it. Some magic user out there should be able to trace people through things like that, do you think?"

"Yeah... Yeah, I'm sure there is." She sounded more confident, taking the music player -- then glancing at the two of them. "Uh -- Is it gonna be just you guys?"

They glanced at each other, then. After a moment, Scandal sighed, brushing her bangs out of her face. "I'm sure Bane would want to come. Maybe Kay, too. The others should probably stay behind to field assassins, or in case someone spots him around the city."

"Well, come on, then." Suddenly decided, Black Alice headed toward the door. "I didn't feel like going to class, anyway."
