Big thanks to my Montreal friend\ex-roommate who put everything in boxes and saved us a lot of time.
Got rid of some last bit of furniture by putting them on the sidewalk (no used furniture places would take them). Put a little sign on them saying "adopt me!" and by late evening, they were all gone!
Since then, back at work and nothing else much happening. Really nothing to add so I'll just shut up and post some pages.
No Zhao in this part! Just mentions of him.
So we'll continue with Horuk.
Next part, hopefully, everyone will be in place for the final confrontation.
