Clay stammered. Mr. Bailey nodded. “He helped write your online game. He even named it. ” He pointed to a banner striking above the checkout table. it stated in glittery gold letters. In his delirium, Clay had neglected it past. “The young ones desired to switch it to MAGIC SUCKS! ,” acknowledged Mr. Bailey. “But as a instructor, I simply couldn’t—” “Where is he? ” Clay demanded. “At the instant, I don’t understand. ” “But he’s my brother! ” “I’m sorry, Clay,” stated Mr. Bailey. “You simply need to belief him. ” Clay checked out his instructor, tears trickling down his cheeks. “You be aware of what, disregard it,” acknowledged Clay, a deep depression taking where of the sentiments that were roiling within him. “He evidently doesn’t are looking to see me, besides. ” He simply desires to play tips on me, Clay extra in his head. “I must have identified. this entire thing—it’s whatever in simple terms Max-Ernest might do. ” Wiping his eyes, Clay grew to become towards the go out. “Uncle Ben, Skipper, Owen, no matter what your identify is—I’m going to head wait by means of your aircraft. ” Mr. Bailey placed his hand on Clay’s shoulder. “I know how you are feeling, Clay. yet sooner than you pass, there’s anything you'll want to see—” The banyan tree that grew out of the ground of the library appeared even better to Clay while he stood on the base. The trunk was once so vast that there has been nearly no house to stroll round it. And such a lot of roots dangled from the tree that it was once nearly very unlikely to work out multiple or toes forward. He wasn’t definite what he was once taking a look for—Mr. Bailey had simply pointed him towards the tree—and he used to be half-inclined to renounce the hunt and go out the library as he’d deliberate. as an alternative, he driven his method during the roots, circling the tree. He’d nearly made a whole circle while he spotted a faint humming sound coming from the tree trunk. one other beehive? carefully, he stepped nearer, and observed it: a small around door on the base of the tree, surrounded by means of roots on either side. in the course of the door used to be a brass knob. The humming grew louder. Clay remembered Uncle Ben—Owen, he reminded himself—saying anything a couple of vault beneath the tree. A vault that contained Price’s most dear books. Is that what this was once? Then why the humming? Clay attempted the knob, however the door was once locked or caught. or perhaps it’s pretend, Clay proposal. Like every thing else at the island. “It was once locked by way of Max-Ernest,” stated Mr. Bailey, who had walked up beside Clay. “Only you recognize the notice that would open it. ” Clay frowned. “How could i do know it? ” “He stated it was once the 1st magic notice you ever realized. He wouldn’t let us know what it was once. ” Clay studied the door for a second; he couldn’t think which word—of the entire magic phrases they'd spoken to every other—Max-Ernest could have been taking into account. What was once unusual used to be Max-Ernest calling it a magic observe rather than a nasty be aware, as and they did. Then, unexpectedly, Clay grinned. That used to be the clue.
