Riebe shook her head slowly. "Irvine was visited and taken. I expect all of us know that much."
She frowned. "I've heard of things like this happening, but never been close enough to feel someone taken like that..." Her voice trailed off thoughtfully. Then, she said, "Usually, the stories I heard ended with the one that was taken being returned, though the time in which that happens varies greatly, a difference of minutes to months."
"So there is nothing for us to do but wait?" Alyssa wondered. Riebe shook her head.
"In some cases, I've heard of people never returning," she said. "I don't think waiting is what you want to do."
