Looks like there were no helpful hints in the paper. I'm sure the broadsheets have better things to report than that Gordon Ramsey/Bobby Fischer hybrid monster.

Now... maybe we can start learning magic?

Who knows if it’s even from the same day … or if they are close enough to the points they were kidnapped for the newspaper to even bother.

I guess not.

Amical is rather cute when he cries. I would love to see Billy take him down a few more notches, so I can savor his tears, or possibly quiver in fear as he destroys everything.

Of course the wizard won't let you get reliable news. For all you know, Amical may have magicked you out of the memories of everyone else you knew.

Ahem, BATED breath- (I'll admit I didn't catch it at first.) That is, you ABATE (Weaken or decrease) your breath, so overwhelmed by emotion you nearly stop breathing. I often think of it as holding your breath.

BILLY. YOU MADE AMICAL CRY.
Wait... Which side am I on?
Now that he's lost the gun, Amical really just seems like a child, a misguided child who doesn't understand what his actions mean.
