Place: Gabriel's Cottage in the woods

Mary's p.o.v

Soon after Gabriel's passing, I became depressed. Bash put Gabriel's rifle and the other weapons in the armory under a strict lockdown. He worried and feared I would hurt or kill myself. Anyhow, Bash doesn't know that I have Gabriel's rifle in my possession. I hear footsteps approaching the front door. "I am Mary Queen of Scots. Who are you?" I ask the stranger. "Its me, Nostradomus" the stranger responds. I grant Nostradomus access to my private world.
