The Nine Paths to Chloe King, Episode 8 #NinePaths

The time for our journey to be over is drawing near.  After completing the seventh path and risking danger yet again, I found myself waiting anxiously for the next-to-last path to find and bring forward The Uniter.

The day was bright and sunny when I noticed another package tied to my door knob.  Although it was warm, and I could hear the magestic sounds of a hawk flying overhead, I was filled with a sense of dread when I saw the plastic bag.  Dutifully, never knowing if it would be a piece of communication from the Mai, or a warning from The Order, I took the package inside and opened it.

Imagine my surprise when I found not one, but two packages.

The first held a letter and a charm from the Mai.

The Eighth Path is full of treacherous twists and turns.  We ask that you demonstrate extreme caution every step of the way.  Enclosed is the Mai Protection charm.  Keep it close to protect you and your Circle during the remaining two Paths.

As foretold by the Nine Paths Prophecy, "The Eight Path reveals a great and dangerous Foe who sets many traps as he hunts his target.  Only the Circle of Strangers can follow this deceptive path and uncover the threat."

It has come to our attention that there has been a breach in the Mai's security system.  We sincerely apologize, but your address may have fallen into the wrong hands.  Contact us immediately if any person or any organization attempts to communicate with you about The Uniter, Chloe King.  The Circle is a fierce ally to The Uniter!  The Mai believe you will successfully complete This Path and uncover any threat!

Great, so my address has somehow fallen into the hands of The Order. The same Order who were caught on a phone recording saying that Circle members were a threat and should be eliminated.

I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised to find a message from The Order in the second package.

Within the second package was a postcard of Coit Tower, a very important tower to Chloe King.  In fact, the fact that The Order sent an image of this tower tells me that they are very close to discovering where Chloe is.  On the back of the postcard, a message was written:

Is the circle still searching for dear Chloe King?
Your pathetic prophecy won't save you.
Face it, all is lost.
Batko.me

Oh great!  Upon further searching, I found myself at the web address batko.me with an image of Chloe King and a young man.  Is he one that can be trusted?

The time has come to prepare for the ninth path.  Remember, if you have a protection charm, keep it with you Circle.  If you don't, head on over to ABC Family and enter the password "Deception" to win your own.

The Nine Lives of Chloe King is set to premier tomorrow, June 14th at 8/9c on ABC Family.
