There were no soccer balls, just a few bags of gear that given this was an Arrow van probably held items not usually toted around by soccer moms outside of Texas or Montana.

The van headed south east, moving towards the one of the bridges to the southern Bronx - probably the one that crossed near Rucker Park / the Old Polo Grounds to nearby Yankee Stadium.

Noctum took opportunity during the first part of the journey to put her phone on silent and have a last check of her bag. Not that it had anything special in it. Once they were getting near their zones she started to pay more attention, mostly to any prime in the area.

At least everything was normal, well looking normal in the area so far. She had half expected the mission to take some sort of detour... although those usually happened much later in.

The car kept moving down Manhattan until they crossed over onto Randall's Island and then quick into the south Bronx near the neighborhoods of Mott Haven and Port Morris. The nearest lay line was in Port Morris, one that ran east - west along the southern part of the Borough before turning south and heading into northwestern Queens.

Dutch pulled the van off the highway.

"This is the dangerous one."

"It is." Aurora pressed her lips together.

"Nergal and Mitchell both have sleeper war zone experience so Team A will take the lead. Stick half a block to a block ahead of Team B and if there is any trouble fall back to the van or if unable do that hunker down and wait for us to catch up and pull you out."

"We'll be double checking the work so we can move faster."

"Ok, hopefully we manage to get in and out with no fuss." She smiled "I am ready when you are."

Dutch pulled the van to a stop and Team A on the right side got ready to move.

"Alright. Let's do it."

Noctum got a bearing on the Lay Line in the area and was able to get a good read on it.

It was simple - standard - and not shaped like the ones Noctum and Aurora had found on the outside of the city.

The basic resonance was cold - which fit the mainly commercial/industrial mix of the area.

Neither Nergal or Mitchell saw an issue with the next block ahead and waved Noctum forward.

The Team B moved up behind them to double check the work and allow Team A to move fast through dangerous territory.

More of the same on the next block - the lines were clean and not overflowing - meaning that they fed into a Hallow nearby - probably a Seer Hallow from what she'd researched. Same resonance as before.

Still not tailored. Naturally occurring.

Nergal waved her ahead to the next block.

Just Three more rolls please

Team B moved up for the double check, moving quickly and carefully.

More of the same really for Noctum. The Resonance stayed the same, the lines were neat but not tailored and the whole thing appeared as it should.

About halfway through her third block Noctum saw that the line was being tapped - a spur heading south towards a Hallow to the south of her. Probably a Seer Sanctum.
