    -Mysterious Canyon, early afternoon-

    Wearing her tan outfit with Saint Sinner Valentine slung over her right shoulder and a hydration pack on her back, Diana was here to rescue a young woman named Amanda Smith. Amanda was from Magnolia Town and was said to have an atrocious sense of direction. One anecdote told to Diana by Amanda's older sister Meredith was that Amanda was sent to the grocery store in Magnolia Town and somehow ended up in Hargeon Town several hours and many, many meters away from her intended destination. Meredith had told Diana that Amanda was supposed to go to a friend's house in Clover Town but the last iLac call that Meredith had received a few hours ago indicated that Amanda had somehow ended up in Mysterious Canyon.

    Diana was truly puzzled by that kind of mistake.

    How could Mysterious Canyon possibly be mistaken for Clover Town?

    Diana had no idea. Her job was to find Amanda Smith and bring her back to safety, not wonder how she had ended up here. She began to look for Amanda while keeping an eye out for trouble. The blonde had fought bandits in this region before and was wary of another ambush from any surviving members of the Marauders. She had reason to suspect that not all of them had been killed by her or by Ben the caravan guard.

    Diana entered the mouth of Mysterious Canyon and looked on the roof of the canyon for anyone lying in wait for her or for other travelers. She did not spot any would-be snipers in the area, but that did not mean that there was no danger in the canyon. There could be trouble further in the canyon and Amanda could have walked right into it.

    The huntress continued onward into the canyon, walking towards the cave where she had taken refuge from the Marauders and where Ben had come to her rescue after she had gotten cornered within it. Diana decided to check the cave in case Amanda had taken refuge from the heat in there. Once she reached the mouth of the cave Diana activated her night vision and stepped into the cool cave to try and find Amanda before she got herself even more lost in the inhospitable environment of Mysterious Canyon.

    -Inside the cave-

    Diana stepped into the cave and switched to infrared vision to see if Amanda had left any recent footprints that the huntress could use to track the missing young woman. She looked towards the ground and saw tiny footprints consistent with those made by the local wildlife, but she was looking for human-sized footprints. Diana focused on the ground and saw human-sized footprints leading towards the underground pool where she had holed up several months ago. Walking carefully to the left of the prints, the huntress followed them down the tunnel to the left at the fork in the path and made sure not to step on them and accidentally ruin the trail she was following.

    -At the underground pool-

    After approximately three minutes of walking Diana arrived at the underground pool and saw the cold footprints go around the pool before stopping at the edge. Diana saw a discarded blue shirt nearby and immediately surmised that Amanda had somehow lost her shirt. The young woman was missing and Diana immediately began to look for more footprints after picking up the shirt.

    Where could Amanda have gone?

    Diana looked for footprints to show her the way and found another set that went around the right side of the pool. They were cold and what looked like splotches of dried water sat near them. Diana took the fact that she was holding Amanda's shirt and came up with a hypothesis.

    Amanda had taken a swim in the water to cool down. When she had cooled off enough, she got out of the water and left the cave.

    Diana did not have firm proof of that hypothesis, but based on the shirt and the footprints, that was the only sensible hypothesis she could come up with. However, that bit of detective work was only filling in details, not helping her find Amanda. The huntress still had to find Amanda before she could pat herself on the back.

    -Outside the cave, Mysterious Canyon-

    Diana followed the footprints in the cave to the outside and was standing back in the canyon with no further clues as to where Amanda had went. The ambient temperature was far too high to make good use of infrared vision and any wet footprints would have been dried by the heat of the sun. Diana looked around the immediate area in case Amanda had realized that her shirt was missing and was coming back for it but did not see anyone in the immediate area. Diana was the only person around... even a glimpse at the top of the canyon wall opposite her position did not show anyone. Then the blonde thought about something.

    If Amanda's feet were wet, she should look at the sand in front of her. Wet feet would make tracks until they were caked in dirt. Even then the dirt would show signs of having been walked upon.

    Diana looked down and saw that to her left there were footprints that led into the distance. The blonde walked to the left of the trail and began following it away from the cave and deeper into Mysterious Canyon. There was no telling how far Amanda Smith had managed to travel in the few hours between getting here after going horribly off-track and Diana getting here to find her.

    -Deeper in Mysterious Canyon, forty minutes later-

    About thirty-five minutes ago the clear footprints Diana had been following had turned into barely discernible tracks in the dirt, but they were tracks nonetheless. They seemed to be leading in the direction of Professor Fauntleroy's camp, ground that Diana had some knowledge of after working with him several months ago. Since the trail was still going and was still somewhat recognizable, Diana decided to follow it to the end and see if Amanda's atrocious sense of direction had led her towards that area.

    -Deeper in Mysterious Canyon, forty minutes later, Professor Fauntleroy's dig site-

    Diana reached the site where Professor Fauntleroy had established his camp and saw that while it was not the hive of activity it had been several months ago, there were still a few tents set up here and there. That must have meant that work was still ongoing at the site. Maybe Amanda had stumbled upon the site and had found shelter in Professor Fauntleroy's tent. With no other viable options and nothing to lose by taking a peek, Diana went into the camp and made a beeline for the professor's tent.

    -Inside Professor Fauntleroy's tent-

    "Hello? Professor Fauntleroy?" Diana called out as she peeked into the tent. Professor Fauntleroy was sitting at his table sipping tea when he saw the blonde's head looking in. He remained calm and set the tea cup down on the saucer in one of the only clear spots on the table and warmly greeted her.

    "Hello, Miss Winchester! What brings you out to this neck of the woods? Er, canyon?" He asked her in a jovial tone.

    "I am looking for a young woman who went missing in this area." Diana told him the purpose of her visit. The professor rapped the fingers of his left hand on the table and thought about what he had just been told.

    "Hmmm... come to think of it, a young woman did come through here a couple of hours ago. She was a strange sort. She had long blonde hair in twintails was walking through here without a shirt on... it was a good thing she had a black bikini top on." Professor Fauntleroy told Diana. Diana blinked.

    "Which way did she go?" Diana asked him.

    "She was rather sunburned, so I put her in one of the tents to cool down. When I talked to her she said that she thought she was in Clover Town. I think the sun got to her." He answered before adding an opinion on the young woman's mental state. Diana was glad to know that she would not have to search the entire canyon to find Amanda... if the young woman was indeed Amanda and not another one who had gone missing in the same area as her. The professor noticed the shirt being held in Diana's hand.

    "I see that you found her shirt. She mentioned leaving it by a pool and was going to look for it when I made her stay. I was afraid that she would go look for it and end up somewhere else entirely." He informed Diana. Diana blinked. While that was technically true, it had not been left by the pool of a hotel. It had been left by a pool in one of the more inhospitable regions outside of the Cursed Lands or Desierto.

    "Thank you." Diana thanked the professor for his foresight.
