Location: Merlins Tower (Inside)
Maddie looked at the conjured familiar with a critical eye. Both in amazement as well as caution as he worried about whether or not the creature would become hostile. For now it seemed to be acting as a familiar should, so Matthew relaxed his shoulders and was about to reach out and have the cat sniff him when suddenly Red saw something that alerted her to guards nearby. He instinctively tensed up again, crouching lower as he nodded towards Red and began to sneak his way towards Merlin's Tower with a bit of a hurry.
Once inside Maddie curved around the door and laid his back against the wall where the hinges met so that if anyone entered the house they wouldn't be able to see him right away. He let out a soft sigh and looked to Colby as he pressed him with questions, only shaking his head lightly. "Nothing. Maybe it's your ancestry with the Cheshire Cat that allows you to hear them? I have a working theory that perhaps people from Wonderland have strange and unpredictable side-effects to their magic. But…" Maddie pulled the book open once more, finding the page again and re-reading the spell, his tongue sticking out partially as he thought. "Says here you can communicate with your familiar telepathically. Doesn't seem like anyone else can though. Again, jealous."
