Search for Siruis

Okay, so I had to leave abruptly after last term.  I told everyone it was for training, but that was just my cover.  I actually went out to find my missing husband.  The clues lead me to some REALLY scary places.  Being I had to travel into muggle country, I had to ride my broom at night.  The picture above is some of the terrain I flew in.  Oh no, someone is coming, I will write more later!  Sweet dreams!
