Maddy sighed and looked at her mother again. “Mama?”
Katherine looked up from a book she was flipping through. “The red aura is a very strong one Maddy. The strongest emotions are involved,” she waved a hand as she spoke, “war, death, hatred or quite possibly, love.” She flipped a page in the book again and then looked up to Regina. “I’m going to need to try and track this item all the way back to 1600’s; we need its history and then we can figure out the connection.”
Colin looked up from his hands. “There was a plaque under it, something about a Pictish King.”
Katherine’s eyebrows shot up. “Pict King? Did it say which one?”
He lowered his head and sighed, “I was distracted and didn’t read the rest.” His eyes moved to Maddy briefly.
Maddy’s mother blew out a breath. “That is a long line to follow. It branched out all over the place in the 1700’s.” She paused for a moment and studied Maddy. “This may take a day or so to figure out.”
