Secret Missions

I've been talking to my mom all week, trying to figure out what happened to her. She refuses to talk about it. She tells me her mission was top secret, that something went wrong, and now she's trying to find her own way out.

She tells me that it's dangerous for her to talk like this, but that she's missed me so much. She keeps asking all sorts of questions about my personal life and about the school. She tells me she's proud of me.

I've made contact! I finally put together the message that was left for me. It was a difficult multi-layered cipher. Each key was encoded in another cipher just a little simpler then the one before it.

The message was a Web site address. I logged in and it turned out to be a chat room. Waiting for me was my mother! I remember what Betty told me about not knowing who really is behind the mask when you talk to someone in a chat room, so I asked the person waiting there many questions that only my mother would know the answers to. She got each and everyone correct.

We talked into the night. I miss her so much.

Scavenger Hunt Coming Soon!

I was told to keep this hush, hush but I'm just so excited! Despite having taken down the scavenger hunt on the school grounds I've been getting repeated requests by people wanting to experience it for themselves. It's not just the cadets staying at the Academy either. I've spoken with Maya, and she's given me permission to integrate the hunt into the main Web site! I'll have to modify the clues a bit, but it'll match the spirit of the original.

I'm so excited. I'm going to be working hard on this for the next few weeks. Wish me luck!

Deepening the Search

Ever since I found that clue left by my mother I've been looking everywhere for another. I keep finding bits and pieces everywhere I go. It's like she's been keeping track of me all this time. She knows all my favorite haunts all the topics that I'm researching.

Oh, Mom. I've missed you so much.
