Alexander shrugs, unable to identify any tracks.

Isolde hopes she is not missed at breakfast; she certainly doesn't miss the congealed fare. She heads out to the stables to feed the ferret and sees the two gentlemen peering at something on the floor, she wanders over and looks down at the rabbits. "Ugh, why hide the carcases there? The dogs might eat them. Strange way to kill them but I don't suppose it's a ritualistic killing; not like what we found in Dartmoor. I'd have pinned it on young George but he's been confined to bed." She shrugs.

Everyone has woken up very early. You have time before breakfast. What would you like to do?

Harry continues on towards the quarry but decides to have a little nose around the outside of Old Fred's quarters to see if he is up yet.

Vic hangs around the kitchen, having managed to scrounge a cup of tea, and keeps an eye out for Bates or Meddler.

Isolde goes, after feeding the ferret, for a short walk through the gardens while it is still cool enough.

If Fred is home, there is no sign. His cottage is silent and the dogs aren’t present.

The house and grounds seem quiet. Presently Betty and Connie appear and start preparing breakfast, making tea for anyone who is present.

Bates presently returns from seeing to his master, his face a mask of concern. He says nothing, but casts a worried glance at Betty.

Vic catches the worried look shared between the butler and the cook. When everyone else is busy preparing breakfast, she steps over to him and says quietly, "Is everything well with his lordship this morning, Mr Bates?"

"Could be Fred who killed the rabbits if he was out and about," says Alexander.

Bates hesitates.

“He’s not doing very well miss. I fear for his health if this continues much longer.”

He goes over to help his wife.

Vic muses on what she has been told, wondering if, whatever is causing the events at the Hall, the aim is the demise of Mr Forby.

She decides to go and catch up with the others so heads upstairs to change, before going to find the others outside.

Isolde drifts around the garden trying to collect her thoughts over the whole matter. Once she is sure breakfast is over, she returns to the house to find the others.

Finding no sign of Fred, Harry heads down towards the quarry keeping his eye out for signs that anyone else is out abroad this morning.

While Isolde potters around, the other three companions make their way to the quarry. The morning is still cool but is the sun is climbing and it is becoming progressively hotter. The tramp through the woods is tiring, but eventually the companions reach the quarry. To Harry it looks the same as before, with the ruined hut adjacent to the side.

Harry looks into the hut, he tries to see if there is any sign someone else has been in there, in particular whether any of the items have been moved.

Alexander looks around outside the hut to see if there's any sign someone has been here recently.
