David Clay was in darkness. As a golem he did not sleep and had never understood the human preoccupation with dreaming. But after a few hours in isolation he found his mind strangely at ease. His righteous rage was quieted and he felt a profound peace that gave him a deeper insight into mortals.
When Lucy Smith-Einar had proposed putting him in a packing crate and shipping him through the heavy security at the Radcliffe Interdisciplinary Research Center he had realized that the idea was quite clever. Lucy was right that he didn’t need to breath and wouldn’t be bothered by being sealed in the shipping container. The golem did not experience claustrophobia and could reform his shape to conform to the crate. No human, no matter how much they contorted their body, could manage to fit in the container without the removal of a limb or three. It made it extremely unlikely that he would have any trouble making it past the check points. Especially if his box was marked hazardous materials and Lucy submitted the proper paperwork for a shipment. However, the golem felt the pangs of anxiety threaten his calm. He was at least a half hour overdue for being released by Lucy. Something must have gone wrong.
Outside the heavily secured research facility Fergus Mac Cormaic paced impatiently. The three of them had worked out a pretty good plan to get David and Fergus past the powerful wards and mundane security of the research facility. After releasing the golem from his crate Lucy was supposed to lower the wards that prevented him from using his affinity for gating through the Nevernever to any place he desired. She was then supposed to activate a beacon for him to hone in on with her magic.
