eal with this. And the only plausible way seems be contacting the government, although… he might also be able to help…]

-Do you have either a list or a general understanding of what the ”personal belongings ” are?

-Yes. We have heavily generalised the term, but we considered anything people had with them, aside from clothing and pocket watches, as personal belongings. As such, almost every person has a Mark II revolver with them, along with 30 rounds on average, and almost as much people carry a multi-purpose knife.

-Then, specialised tools are a lot less common, and people carrying them were generally the ones on a shift at the factories at the time, among the specialised tools there are sets of wrenches, around a thousand people have those, then we have plumber wrenches, even less common with about 500.

-Next, aside from tools, we have general utensils people had with them at the time. Those range from newspapers all the way to empty bullet cartridges. Although, since it was evening at the time, quite a lot of people also have kitchen knives with them, around 4 000 people have those.

-Finally, some of the scientists from the Engineering Bureau were researching Zegrahael at the time, and managed to save the research papers. In total there are 15 scientists, 7 of which had research papers on different aspects of the liquid, and, miraculously, we are able to get the full research from the seven pieces, although some were duplicates.

-Research on Zegrahael was saved?! Thats incredible! Very well, this will aid our further development. Okay, thats great. Now, what is the general situation among people?

[With this, he will have more motivation to aid us as well! But whats going on among people is also important and mustn be cast away.]

-Theres a bit of unrest, however its already better then what was before we regained control over masses. Some people were hungry, so we formed a few squads centered around people with knowledge about different kinds of plants produced by the forest, and before we left to find you some have already reported on discovery of edible plants, bringing along some of them.

-Some people were hesitant to eat, however hearing that currently it is the only option we have they gratefully accepted it. As such the situation in the camp is quite good despite the early unrest and confusion. So, do you have any instructions?

-Yes, but first, is my pocket watch still with you?

Emily smiled.

-Yes you majesty, just as you asked I kept it with me at all times, here you go. Its already wound up since I serviced it just like mine ane Marks.

Both Zaxton and Mark answered simultaniously, although Mark was a little embarassed:

– -Thanks Emily/sister.

Afterwards, Emily drawn the watch out by its chain. Unlike her and Marks, which were gold plated, this watch was made out of brass. It was the very first watch to be made in Engandia, by the factory built there. The VERY first watches belonged to Emily and Mark, as they were there before even the capital itself was established.

Zaxton took his watch, a symbol of progress of Engandia, and took a look at the engraving on the inside of the cover plate. Made by his people without his knowledge, this engraving was the thing that reinforced his emotional ties with his people, and so it became the coat of arms of the capital, and the whole country.

An opened pocket watch hanging by its chain, showing 5:00 with its arrows, symbolising dawn. Its surrounded by two factory chimneys spitting out clouds of smoke, and under the watch theres a cross out of two cannons, with the two pairs symbolising factories and workers of the country and its military respectively.

And finally, behind the watch, there was a faint outline of balancing scales, symboliing equality and fair judgement.

The watch factory was one of the last to be built in Engandia at the time, and so, sitizens of the capital and the entire country wanted to show their appreciation, and just like that, this watch was born.

Zaxton took a look at the time on the watch, and at the time on the clock on the wall, surprised by the fact that the time was equal, 7:12 AM.

He quickly asked the two to wait for him outside the room, and quickly dressed, putting the watch in his left breast pocket, with the chain going over to the right one.

Once he finished dressing, he opened the door and said:

-Very well. Its time to visit someone, come with me.
