Chapter Sixty-Seven: In Which The Point Of Everything Gets Revealed And Seems Pointless
Rose did not trust Chief Alya one bit. Maybe it was just because the chief didn’t like her very much, but something about her seemed like there was more to her than what met the eye. She debated staying in the lab with Flake, since she highly doubted that there was anything interesting in the basement, but then she decided that, if Snow and Jack got into any trouble, (which she figured they would, being as naive as they are), she needed to be there to get them out of it.

For a moment, it was like time stopped. Everyone froze in place, looking in horror at the bookshelf opening…

With everything that had been happening, it would be suffice to say that Flake was feeling very overwhelmed by everything that was going on. He was having a rough time, considering he still hadn’t fully recovered from the shock he had when he woke up, and he still felt like throwing up when he had this slime thing forced down his throat but Jack unexpectedly appearing out of thin air was… well, almost to much to handle.

“How come you’re here? How did you even get here? And how did you open the locked door?” Jack exclaimed, stumbling back a little. Flint grinned widely and didn’t say anything.
“Oh, great,” Snow sighed, after she recovered from the shock. “As if we need more trouble.”

Chapter Sixty-One: In Which Jack Gets Lucky
Jack thought he knew where he was. He didn’t. And after a while of sneaking around the woods in the dark, he was lost. He wasn’t entirely lost, since he could see the Great Sycamore pretty well no matter where he went, therefore helping him locate where the Grand House was, but he had no idea where the entrance to the caves might be.

When Snow regaled Flake with stories from when she was in the caves, she made it sound like she had a fantastic time there, talking animatedly about the things she saw and the games she played and how interesting everything looked.
