Matias woke the next morning with only a vague impression of what had happened with Kelsey the night before. He remembered being so torn up inside, so rife with emotion that he had been trying to suppress, that every forgotten ache lingered with him keenly now, like a pond whose bottom had been agitated and now all the waters were clouded with silt.

The mirrored room with the pit was the strangest memory of all. He remembered was the darkness itself surrounding them, crackling all about the room with wild, eldritch energy before it funneled down on them. And though he tried to protect her with his own body, the energy went right through him and funneled down into Kelsey. And then his connection went out.

Brock had woken up around the same time. After Brock made a frantic call to the front desk, they had found out that Kelsey had been missing the night before, but she had been found and seemed to be resting. They went to breakfast afterwards, joined only by Dottie. The rest of their group had been involved in some kind of fight the night before and were recovering back at Sweetree village.

As breakfast went on, Matias couldn't help but notice not only how strangely Dottie was acting, even for her, but that there was something familiar about her. When he looked at her, he couldn't help but feel a strange kinship, as if looking back at a mirror of his soul, but the feeling was definitely not romantic.

Breakfast had almost concluded when a note arrived for Brock saying that Kelsey was awake now and wanted to see him and only him. At that moment, Matias found that he still very much wanted to kill Brock, but daylight brought the irrationality of his feelings to the fore, and he swallowed that feeling down inside him with the rest of his lumpy oatmeal. He was probably being stupid. >.>

About an hour later, hoping that Kelsey would show up, Matias went to the lobby to meet everyone for the guided tour that had been scheduled for the entire group. Unfortunately, the only other person there was Dottie, who offered him a faltering smile by way of greeting. There was a strange, tingling sensation in Matias' chest then. One that seemed to go all the way through him. He wrote it off to indigestion.

Buck was back and feeling better than ever for their tour. After quipping a joke about how few of them were left, he drove them to a little apiary out in the Waxenrod fields. Equipped with protective gear, they got to examine the cylindrical bee hives, pick their own pieces of honeycomb, and came away with little jars of honey from different types of flowers.

Afterwards, Buck drove them towards Sweetree village for lunch and to give them a tour of the various buildings in the town. By this time, Matias and Dottie were feeling more comfortable around each other and slowly, slowly began to open up about their dreams from the night before. Though Dottie was evasive and there was a great deal of blushing involved on her account and she left out certain details, Matias was able to connect the dots well enough with what he had seen in his own dream. More and more, their accounts painted the picture of something strange going on, but perhaps it was all coincidence. After all, dreams happened all the time and didn't mean anything at all.

In Sweetree village, Buck drove them to lunch at the Honeymeat House, which predictably served a bunch of different types of barbecued meat that had all been marinated in some kind of honey-based sauce. All throughout lunch, that tingling feeling through Matias' chest kept nagging at him until finally, he peeked down his shirt. On the place where that dark energy had passed through him in his dream, right over his heart, was a small, ashy black spot about the size of a thumb print. It hadn't been there this morning, he was sure.

When he showed Dottie, and explained, that was when she confessed in a halting mumble, that this morning she had found blood on her sheets. And it wasn't from her period.

Ever the Ravenclaw, Dottie suggested that they find a place where they could find out more about the history of the island and the hotel they were staying in--perhaps that would give them a clue to work some kind of counterspell or some kind of magic that would give them an idea of what they were dealing with. So, they asked Buck, and he took them right away to the island's historical museum.

The Sweetree Heritage Museum was a long wooden building in the village circle. The lobby was small and quaint, with a single sleepy clerk at the desk that doubled as a gift shop with all the souvenirs stored in open racks off to the side. The building branched into two areas. To the right were all the exhibits that one could walk through with little blurbs of information. To the left was a small library containing books of local interest.

Dottie rubbernecked at the corridors left and right. "Hmmm... what do you think we should start with? Maybe the exhibits first? It might give us an idea of what to search for."

Matias seemed distracted by something, so Dottie shrugged and went ahead, urging him to come along after her.

The exhibit began with a giant plaque showing an old sepia tint photograph of the early settlers on the island. There were maybe three dozen or them or so in the picture, all huddled together. According to the plaque, the Pfister, Wittlespree, and Wynchnut families were all the initial settlers on the island, having come over from a small wizarding village in England. To Dottie's surprise, they all had a rakish, broody-eyed look to them, as if they had all been plucked out of a fashion show. Apparently, several generations of inbreeding hadn't been kind to them.

Further along were several framed reproduction pages of the settlers' journals. Most of these entries went something like "yea, the land is fertile AGHHH I JUST GOT STUNG BY A BEE!" Dottie skimmed over these entries and drifted along towards the next room, checking to see if Matias was coming.

"Are you okay?" she asked, noticing he seemed a little distracted.

As it turned out, Matias was in fact, not okay. The black spot on his chest was spreading outward, spider-webbing out through his veins in a dark, marbled appearance. A greenish pallor had fallen over his skin, and before he could respond to Dottie, he collapsed in the middle of the exhibit.

Dottie squeaked and immediately panicked. Her blood running cold and at about a hundred miles per hour, she raced out of the exhibit and called for Buck. When Buck arrived, he looked distressed at the sight of Matias on the floor, took one look at the black stain on his chest, and suddenly his mien changed to that of a man at a funeral. With his considerable strength, he picked up Matias, and the two of them brought him to Merry Pfister's house to see what could be done for him.
