To say that Patty was keeping a cool head was partly and understatement. While she had kept her normal interactions with Alex and Patrick, inside she was freaking out. After all, she hadn't time traveled before. Oh her mother had told her time travel stories from her own world, and the experiences her parents had told her about in this world. But she herself had never had an experience like that, had hoped she never would. Yet here she was, in a time and place when she didn't even exist yet. That was freaky enough in and of itself. While she knew Patrick had a point in not meddling in the past, she wasn't admitting that. She did wonder how much of an impact her and Alex telling their parents would have on their own lives in the future, but considering so many others seemed to be telling their parents? She didn't exactly see anything wrong with this. Patty wasn't exactly one to sit still for long either, so after they got back from the movie, she went to her mother's room to get an object of hers, a string and a crystal before meeting Alex in their dad's room.
"Really, they're still living separately? Talk about weird," she said as she walked in. She walked over to where Alex had opened the atlas to the country view, setting down a piece of her mother's jewelry, then went go find something of her father's. While she knew they were both undoubtedly together wherever they were, it wouldn't hurt anything to scry for both of them. Once she found what she needed, she went back to over to the atlas and began scrying. It didn't take long before the crystal landed on Chicago. Not so surprising as she knew that's where their dad was from in his own world. "All right, this is good." She then grabbed the map of Chicago and again started scrying. The crystal eventually landed on a spot on the map. "Well, that seems to be where they are." She looked at the map, looking for a more specific location. She then looked at Alex. "Think you can project yourself there? I know it's a long distance." She rarely ever said as much, but she did worry for her brother. Their powers had limits, and she wasn't sure if it would be good for him to project himself over such a great distance. This was really when one of them could've used a teleporting power like their cousin Mel had.
