Look for the Long & Fosters- its tucked in a plaza and hard to
see from the road.  Its across from HCC.

From 95 (between Baltimore and DC) take route 32 West and
then take Broken Lands Parkway North to Hickory Ridge Road.   
(From route 29 you will be taking Broken Lands Parkway West).
Take Broken Lands Parkway towards Hickory Ridge RD.

Turn left on Hickory Ridge (it only goes in one direction).   Take
Hickory Ridge RD past Howard Community College and right
after Sunny Spring Rd there is a Long and Fosters on your left.  
That is Hickory Ridge Plaza where Mad City is tucked next to a
chinese restaurant.  Let the Madness BEGIN!

                               Soul Hosts a fantasy novel by Joseph Isaacs

Wayden forked right at the fishmongers stand, soft-soled shoes shuffling against the
cobblestone. He risked a glance. Through the glaring sunlight, he could make out the stranger still
followed him, jostling through a crowd of market-goers. His black hood shadowed his face. He
looked tall and strong, the outline of a sword hilt pushing against his cloak.

A tightness clasped Wayden’s chest. It couldn’t be a coincidence. The man was following him.
“Why would someone be following me? I’m a nothing,” Wayden asked the wizard who resided in
his mind.

The boy’s head began to itch, a sign that Grandmaster Kolram was preparing to respond. Sure
enough, Kolram’s voice sounded, loud as a fog horn, yet inaudible to anyone but Wayden: "It
would seem he’s after the bounty on unauthorized use of magic. But how could he be aware of
my presence?”

How indeed. Wayden hadn’t breathed not a word. Wayden increased his pace and the man’s
footsteps sped up to match.

Wayden took another glance. A shaft of light fell upon his pursuer’s face, illuminating gray skin.
An icy feeling rushed down Wayden’s spine. Could he be the same…no…this man was smaller,
likely no more than six feet tall.

Wayden desperately scanned the street for a means of escape.
