Before Dawn- March 15, 44 BC
It was still a few hours before dawn by the time Story and his companions were within sight of Scaevola's villa in the Roman countryside. They had followed the directions that Adelphus had provided, traveling a short distance southwest of Rome along the road leading to the port of Ostia. The walled estate had a single gate, which was flanked by two khopesh-bearing Egyptians, their swords on their backs. Elizabeth and Lucius had been here before earlier tonight, but it was new to Story and Brook. Whatever they intended to do, they did not have much time - ironic, considering that they were time travelers.
Lucius was holding his chin thinking... "If someone could try to distract the guard maybe I could sneak around the walls and see if there's an easy place to climb it up for all of us. Or i can try to infiltrate alone. What dou you think?"
Lucius try to see a way in from his position.
After looking around carefully Lucius tell his friends:"I think its doable to pass that wall. From what I see here except from the front part where there are the guards all the sides are possible point of entry.Maybe if we help each other to climb the wall it could easier to pass that obstacle. "
"It's a very good idea Story. The only thing I'm scared of is if we are always stuck with some guards around to watch our every movements. It dosent leave us with many options to search around. "
After listening to Sotry and evaluate the situation, Lucius turn himself toward Story and say:"You are right Story, it's probably too dangerous to sneak in alone. You has always guide us well. I'll come in with you three. Please lead the way Story. "
"Be seated and remain here," said the servant. "I shall summon the Senator." He left the room the way he had come, vanishing into the darkness.
"I was informed that you came from the Temple of Thoth with an urgent message for me," said the Senator, tucking his hand partway into his toga. He looked tired, but alert. "I am listening."
