–Zot—
The medical team that checks out Lucy finds that although he is unconscious, he is physically fine.  No internal bleeding, no bruises, no broken bones, no cuts, no scratches, nothing.  There isn’t even any of his blood on his clothes to indicate regeneration or fast healing.  For the second time that day, Lucy survives unharmed from what should have been a fatal experience.
 
–Station Square, Abandoned Subway–
Rust:  (she’s got the jitters alright.  Question is, will addressing it do more good than harm?)  *he continues down the passage for a minute or so and checks the setting on his strange gun before deciding to speak.*  “It died instantly; no pain.” *rust says, referring to the rat.* (not a lot of head left either.)  “There’s many a man I wish died that way; quick and painless.  Sometimes that’s the best we can do.  You may question the morality of your actions, or if it somehow changes you, but remember that because you can pull the trigger you are alive.  Now, let’s hope that you won’t need to use the gun again.”  *moments later the tunnel comes to an enormous open area.  The weak light of Rust’s phone fails to reach the far side of the room but manages to illuminate the forest of arches and pillars that support the roof.  Whole subway cars lay rusting to their tracks nearby, and a multitude of branching off tunnels make the place resemble a maze.*  ( I hope she remember the layout.)

*The two of them continue to head down hall and come across a giant hole in the hall from it they hear some screaming semi faint, but clear that someone's in agony*
Mia: oh dear, I wonder who that could be.*she then looks at him* you aren't planing on jumping down are you?

*elsewhere on the second floor the group is taking steady watch and turns making sure Lucy is ok. some of them question where he came from as they have never seen him before. most presume him as a new member as many of they are. To be safe they don't let down their guard till they hear straight from the horse's mouth when he wakes.*

(first off I think everyone is just busy. second off, happy birthday bud.)
_____________________________
* he lands on the 5th floor the group turns around and sees Pico*
Rupert: Pico, buddy great timing. As you can here, Rob won't shut up and is in agony worse than agony. Aparently, he got slammed 5 floors down by a giant club like ax, and we can't move him without risk of him dying on the way up. We tried contacting the clerics, but the responce was not what we wanted to here. Mind giving us a hand and healing him up?

*repairs are being made throught the base as the Tech Ninjas progress to fix the main wireing*

* On the Second floor the group stands watch outside the barracks they check in on Lucy frequently and take shifts wating for him to wake and ask what happened to him?*

–Zot, Second Floor–
Lucy:  *groggily wakes after nightfall.  He’s a bit stiff, and confused.*  “huh, what are all of you doing here?  Never seen a guy sleep before?”  *he says as he looks at his watchers.*
 
 
–The Fey Realm, Twighlight Woods– 
   “…rhiannon…”
   “…Rhiannon…”
             “I told you she’d sleep for a week.”  
   “It’s not even close to a week yet, sprite.  Look now, the Lass wakes.”
*Rhiannon slowly comes to; aching all over and with sound coming to her long before vision.  The two voices hush as she reluctantly opens her eyes and surveys her surroundings.  She lies in the middle of what can only be described as grey woods at twilight.  It is cold and misty with the only natural color in the scene coming from the amber light of a setting sun.  beside her stands some kind of  short elf garbed like an urchin, and seated next to him none other than the horned god of the hunt Cernunnos himself.*
Cernunnos:  “Ha! Ye see Robin, she wakes after not more than six nights.”  *the god muses as he uncrosses his legs and stands to his full height.*
Puck:  “Fine, you win this bet.”  *Robin Goodfellow says with a good natured shrug.*
Rhiannon:  “Six nights?  What’s become of the mortal realm in that time?”  *asks Rhiannon groggily as she sits up.*
Puck:  “many cities are in flames, people are dead, a tower’s been crippled… quite a bit considering it’s only been about a day for them.  I dare say that they haven’t had this much turmoil since Lord Cernunnos brought his wild hunt to England.”
Cernunnos:  “I owed Torvek a favor, much like you now owe one to me, sprite.”  *says without any guilt.*
Rhiannon:  “How did I get here?  I remember going to get something, and then…pain.”  *she says, trying hard to clear her head of fuzziness and her body of achiness.*
Cernunnos:  “that would be the drain.  Some kind of demon device sapped the strength right out of most everyone that had surplus.”
Rhiannon:  “But how did I get here.”  *she gestures around her.* 
Puck:  “not sure, but it was probably a leftover ward from Torvek.  He’s crafty for a mortal.  Was.”
Rhiannon:  (will we ever be rid of his legacy?)  *sigh*  “it doesn’t matter.  All I need right now is to get back to the mortal realm.”
Cernunnos:  “how are you going to do that without a ready gate?  There’s no full moon to let fairie rings work and Stonehenge is long since lost to us.”
Rhiannon:  “we lost Stonehenge?!  When was that?”
Puck:  “that was AD 35 to Roman Emperor Claudius.  Nasty bloke that; he had no sense of humor…”
Rhiannon:  *Groans*  “It doesn't really matter, I just need to find a way back.”

Rupert: *carries Pico up a few floors and runs into Mia* oh hey Mia looking for him?
Mia: *gasps* Pico!
Rupert: I know I'm slightly concerned too… he passed out after healing one person. its very unlike him.
Mia:…mind if I try something?
Rupert: what?
Mia: well we sort of have this bond and-
Rupert: I get it. Just give me a moment to find a bed.

*Second floor*
* he's then apprached by a figure dreesed in standard Zot  gear*
Lori: Well, no offence pal but normal people aren't found “sleeping” in the hallway. We actually thought you were dead or in an extended coma. …*she then sighs and waves patrol to go and find others* Sorry, with the whole crisis going on, our superiors out dealing with the problem, and we're under attack,  itgets kind of stressful.*she then extends her hand* name's Lori by the way.

–Zot, 2nd Floor—
Lucy:  *gingerly and somewhat awkwardly shifts himself so as he is sitting up.*  “I can hear you there on stressful.  I’m all backed up and it feels as though someone dropped a bridge on me.”  *he twists his stiff back in two deliberate movements and pops it nearly half a dozen times each way.*  “Nice to meet you all the same, Lori, would that it were under better circumstances.” *he accepts her handshake in what might be a charming manner at any other time.*  “say, ah, the boss told me to talk to the tentacle man upstairs.  I assume he’s…ah, common knowledge but this is only my second day.  Who, where, and, ah, what is he?”

???:you know…back then when we first met you were just confused you were just a teenager in a unfamiliar place.
Pico:*sarcasim*where? space?
???:* she smiles* somthing like that
Pico:…who are you?
Maria:my name is Maria
  *meanwhile after placeing Pico on a bed Mia started the connection*
Pico:hmm Mia? how did you get in my head?!
Mia:*without a second to spare Mia hugged Pico*nevermind that are you ok?
Pico:*sighs* im fine
*Mia looks around*
Mia:(everything is diffrent…did the shockwave cause this? or maybe the amnesia)*she then notices Maria*
Maria:hello
Mia:uh hello…

Mia: *it takes her some time but recollections from Pico's storys about the ark during their dates makes her realize who's standing in front of her* So… your Maria, or the memory of her in Pico's mind.*she then scratches her head* Most interesting. I'm Pico's wife, Mia.*she then takes a moment and bows briefly* I apologise if I interupted this moment at helping piece Pico's memory back together, but when I was told he fainted,*she then takes a good look around* Well you can understand my concerns.

*Second floor*
Lori: tentacle monster?*it takes her a moment but she realizes what he's talking about*…oh, you mean the guy on the 8th floor.  Everyone knows about him, they make up stories about him that seem impossible for anyone to do and live through. Being here for a few months myself, I don't read too much into them and dismiss such until proven. Anyway, if it is urgent news I can come and escourt you. I know the best ways to get up to where you need to go.

Mia:whats wrong?
Pico:*sighs* you tell  her

Mia:what do you mean?
Pico:it probably would take months maybe even years to get some more memories back
Maria:but dont lose hope*she turns to Mia* Mia keep trying and im sure he,ll have his memories back before you know it.
Mia:alright*she then smiled at Pico and grabbed his hand he smiled back. then a flash of light apeared causeing the 2 ta wake up*

Rupert:you dont seem fine maybe you should-
Pico:i said im fine! ok?!!…*Pico loosened his grip on Mia and walked away slowly*
Mia:Pico maybe you should rest

*back at the room*
Mia:*enters sits and sighs*
Jasmine: how was it?
Mia: well, he's mad. It feels like he's a diffrent person.*she looks down* What if he doesn't feel the same towards me anymore?
Jasmine:*takes her by the hand* nonsense Pico loves you. All he want to do is remember loving you and everyone else he cares for.
Mia: Right…(its like Maria said I just need to try harder.) By the way how go repairs?
Jasmine: Well the Tech Ninjas are indeed on this floor. Already they're rewiring the place. in fact 4 of them are in our wall right now.
Mia: how do you know?
Jasmine: I got my thermal vision up and running. It also helps that I can hear them better than most living creatures. 
Mia: hmm…
Jasmine:*turns her head slightly* something up? 
Mia:…yeha. I just thought of something. pehaps something on the 3rd floor can help us reboot the tower faster.
Jasmine: Mia, everything was fried including me.
Mia: I know but I don't like feeling useless, besides there's no harm in looking.
Jasmine:…very well. Allow me to escourt you.
Mia: thank you Jazz.

Snow: (Why did I even ask?) *the chop suey is warmed up and two meals served quickly; upon the question why Snow doesn't eat something, he simply responds that he's not hungry; he pulls out his cell phone that vibrated earlier and finds two new messages; the first one, although from Shadowblade himself, he deletes, because it only contains a low quality photo of an apparently injured female wolf - apart from that, the picture is far too dark to make out any details; the second, older one though, also from his boss, causes his knees threatening to give in* (So I could have prevented all this… Instead, the chain of horrible, destructive decisions continues…) *finally catches his breath* I believe you got this, Doc. I'll go outside and see where I can help. Catch you up later. *he doesn't look at either of them and heads for the door in, slamming it shut too loud, sinking against the wall outside next to it while his face contorts in a terrifying grimace. (Wait until I got you. Just wait. Just you wait. All the others I've finished off in my life will watch your demise set by my hand and deem themselves lucky they got away so easily.) *he cringes his fist until it hurts*

- In the woods outside of Zot, Shadowblade sees upon closer look that what he mistook for Remus was actually a Remus-shaped dent in the tree he tossed him into. Remus himself, in the meanwhile, has put a three hundred leagues' distance between him and the leader of Zot so long as he was distracted with torturing »Ilia«, of whose fate the enormous hybrid is just as indifferent as both their enemy, despite the fact she had been carrying the scrolls he was supposed to bring to Rheinheim. All he cares for at the moment is the opportunity to shift the blame of his failure away from him. -
Honour? That useless stigma people think it's worth taking damage for? Yeah, I've heard about it.

*moments after he left Rupert ran into a famillar face and explained the situation. She thanks Rupert and heas in and watches Pico and after the hour had passes she had seen enough*
???:hopeless? that's crazy talk. The Pico I know would never give up, no matter the situation.*she comes into Pico's view and standing before him a a Scarlet female Mobian fox* Your just having a rough time is all and just need someone to help you. *she extends her hand* First thing's first though your going to need a stamina boost.*she then takes out a small vial and gives it to Pico* here. It won't get you back up to 100% but it will stop you from feeling like passing out every 5 minutes.

*Down in the 3rd floor lab*
Mia: I can't find anything…
Jasmine: I did and its dying fast.
Mia: what is it?
Jasmine: I believe its human and machine. A cyborg if you will.
Mia:*she heads over and sees a dying Frank her face pale*Can you prolong the suffering and repair him?
Jasmine:I'm not familar with his design, but I'll try.*she spreads part of her onto Frank and begins to work*

*Doc's lab*
Doc: *as he finishes his food and watches his Friend leave and slam the door he sighs and gets back to work*(Snow, I know this is stressful and terrible things have happened however, hopefuly you'll see this is not a time to sulk and be blinded by revenge. We need every clear head we can get here.)*he then looks over at Val who's expression is worrysome of her husband* Don't worry he'll be fine. he just needs to get focused. After all this is a dire situation and he has history.

*Heading to Doc's lab*
Zack: so why did they come for you?
Steven: I can't explain it as of now as I am in a great deal of*gets bumped into a wall* Paaaaaaaiiiiiiii~nnn…*he then starts to scream for a bit and takes several deep breaths*
Zack: if you keep that up I'll give you something to really scream about. besides we're almost there to Doc's we'll be able to fix everything wrong with you in no time and hopefully get everything together for a counterstrike.

*Outside of Zot*
SB:*realizes that Remus is gone* Sonvabit-*he then clasps his face and coughs something runs through his fingers seeing this he puts his foot above where it lands and reasorbs it*(well this is bad..I haven't even given a proper beating to Remus and I already am feeling like death is lingering around me…doesn't he have souls of the lives lost to handle? I mean harbingers can only do so much.  oh well, …hmm? what do we have here?)*he then notes that there  is a substance on the tree its a small ammount but its enough to Indicate its from Remus. he touches it  puts it to his face and inhales the smell of the chemicals. it takes awhile to process but he makes out a trail of where he's headed and where he'll pop up next. A wicked smile then forms on his face*(your not getting away from me that easily!)*he throws his hand out and runs through the portal and watches infront of him a figure materalize. as he runs through him he grabs two of Remus's limbs and pulls them off. it was fast and he wouldn't have noticed that they were gone until later. both then vainshed from the area they crossed. one still running away from the tower the other now close to his home, wearily dragging two arms towards the tower. slowly the aura faded around him and his colors changed back to his standard wear the white and black thorny pattern now gone his strength dimishing and was having trouble moving any closer to the tower* (Not…yet…I still have to…have t…o get these…h..o..m..e.)*he then vomits something onto the ground and drops to his kness his mind starts to become clouded as a portal opens slowly below him*

–Zot, 8th Floor—
 *Lucy and Lori make the rounda-a-bout trip up six flights of often broken stairs to make it to Doc’s office.  Lucy stops in his tracks when he sees Snow.*
 
Lucy:  (didn’t the boss tell me something about that hedgehog?)  “woah, ah, hi.  Listen, we don’t know each other but the boss told me to tell you to get a haircut.  Also something about a safe sister…it’s kinda fuzzy and I know he said something else.”  *He pauses to think for a moment in concentration.*  “there’s some sort of false lab in the wall…whatever that is…does that help?”
 
–Station Square, Abandoned Subway–
Claire: *walks across the train shifting station and looks into each of the branching off tunnels, exhaling heavily as she finished off her third lap* “Hard to remember the goddamn layout after all that time… Thing is with these subways, they got several levels to them. Don't ask me why, but for some reason they dug, like, a hundred feet ‘nto the ground, with somethin’ like four or five stories instead of just having all the damn trains run on one… Dunno ‘boutcha, but I think that’s gonna play in our favour. We should probably get further down an' lose whoever could be after us.” *sniffs in the air while pacing down the tunnels again, and stops in front of one just as indistinctive from the others as two eggs would match each other* “This one stinks the worst. Betcha it goes down. Yer in for it?”
Rust:  *smells the air and nods.*  “this’ll do. You take point; I’ll cover you.”  (best that jumpy reflexes not put a bullet in my back.)  “I don’t expect any trouble, but keep your guard up; there may be more rats.”  
 
*they aren’t more than twenty yards into the tunnel when the ground begins to shake and a something dark and eerie shoots past overhead.  Behind them, the roof collapses throwing dirt and debris into the air as well as blocking their entrance.*
 
Claire: *looks at the tons of rock located at where she was walking not half a minute ago and gulps* “… That… ain't used to happen earlier.” *she looks at Rust almost as though she had to apologize for the collapsed ceiling* “T'was always pretty safe around here, even when the city was bombed. Looks like things've suffered worse from aging than anything else…” *she takes a moment to clear her thoughts - it's obvious that the events of the past half day overtop her mind*
Rust:  (right, of course it’s falling apart.)  “I guess it was abandoned for a reason.  Look, do you know of another way out?  A bypass, a station exit, an intersection?  We’re going to need to use your memory until we can find a map.”  *rust closes his eyes to get them more adjusted to the dark and concentrates on his other four senses in the meanwhile.  Taste and touch are out of the question and sound is unreliable in the echoey tunnel.  Scent finds the air is musty, stale and septic in consistency; more akin to human waste than rat droppings.*  (either somebody’s been living down here or a sewage line burst ages ago.  I’d be a huge coincidence that the tunnel collapsed just as we came through.) 
Claire: (Yeah, and that's the goddamn prob. If I didn't leave half my memory in the Otherworld…) “A'ight, follow me.” *while walking down the train tunnel that digs deeper into the earth, bending to the right in a slight spiral, she sifts through the mess that's her memory* “… This's the only tunnel in the suburb that's connecting Level One with the lower levels. Other than that, there's not many doors leading up. Hardly any emergency exits or anythin'… I think that was part o' why they closed the old sub down.” *hesitatingly, she addresses to Rust what causes her the worst headache* “… What if we can't find a way back up? If all the other damn tunnels broke down, too? D'ya have a gun for that case?”
Rust:  “Nah, the rest of my equipment is back home.”  *he says somewhat wistfully.* (omni-goggles would be damn handy right now.)  “Doesn’t really matter anyway; that cave in just makes it harder for anyone to follow us.” (effectively trading one unknown treat for another unknown threat.)  “speaking of, who’s after you anyhow?”
Claire: “Pfft, don't ask me, I'm always the last that gets a fuckin' memo addressed to me.” *she thinks back to the one heartbeat in which she catched a glimpse of the perpetrator that attacked the tower* (… Why the bloody devil does she seem so familiar?! Fuck, it's on the tip o' my damn tongue! I hate that!)
 
After some more walk, they reach the second level. The slope of the tunnel softly levels out and, after a few hundred more feet, spits them out to another train station - which is not their final destination either. The stairwell that was once supposed to lead commuters back to the surface is swallowed in more rock, concrete and rebar debris - burying the remnants of a rusty old train waggon. Dust thickens the stale air and aggravates every breath.
 
Claire: “A'ight, what the fuck is going on?! That's a fresh collapse. Why just now? That can't be coincidence. Whatever's down here, it doesn't want us droppin' by on a visit.”
Rust:  “no, it wants us to drop by.  It also doesn’t want us to leave.”  *rust examines the area closely, standing where he is.  Dark things seem to dart about out of the corner of his eye but are never there when he looks directly at where they were.*  “let’s check out that train; we’re bound to be down here a while and that seems as good a place as any to hole up.  Who knows, maybe we can even get it running if we manage restore power.”
Claire: *looks at the old locomotive doubtfully* “I'll do one o' these rats an' upload a vid of that on the net if you get that thing to work.” *she fishes around in her neckbag until she finds her phone and turns the flashlight on it on as well; illuminating various corners of the room, she eventually finds what she was looking for* “Over here! The electricity room is on Level Three, down that tunnel.” *she points at a pictogramme leading to the tunnel where the rails the loco stands on come from*
Rust:  “Lucky rat then.”  *he says, impartially as he follows Claire.*  “the electrical room is a good place to start, assuming that someone hasn’t caved that in too.  If nothing else, it should have schematics of this place.”  *presently, there are sounds of a scuffle in one of the off-tunnels.  There are loud squeeks as if from one of the giant rats and noises of something else far larger.*  “…now’s as good a time as any to get to the electrical room, don’t you agree?”
Claire: *gulps down her fear and mumbles to herself as she kicks her speed up a notch* “For gawdsakes… What is it with this fucked up planet since I died?” *they make their way down to the third level and the inconspicuous door to the electricity room that branches off the tunnel; this time, there's no nearby big station, and the tunnel just runs straight on into darkness* “So, when I landed in a shitty hospital after reaching into an open socket, I decided electricity's not my best buddy. Ya go in ‘n’ get yerself fried, I stay here ‘n’ paint my nails.”
Rust:  “Fine by me.”  *he says with a shrug as he gets to the steel door.  After giving it a few tugs and it not moving he notices the burn marks around the edge.*  (of course it’d be welded shut.  Just freaking typical.)  “Look Bittersweet,  I’m about to make some noise.  You may want to find some cover behind one of the supports.”  *without waiting to see if she does so, he levels his EMG-12R at the  first of the tack welds holding the door shut.*  (let’s see, I don’t want to hit anything important on the other side of this door so it’s best to keep the shells subsonic.) *he dials down the power on his gun to nearly its lowest setting and squeezes the trigger.  The nickel-steel projectile leaves the barrel without any flash or crack of gunpowder and slams ringingly into the weld, snapping the first of many and sending metal into the air.  The smell of ozone and slight whine of electronics permeates the rank air.  In less than a minute he has the door free and open, albeit crooked.*  “okay, it’s open.  Assuming there’s still diesel in the generators we’ll have power back to us in no time.” *he disappears into the room for several minute, fussing with fuses, breaker panels and the generators themselves.*

Snow: *loosens his hand and looks at Lucy sleep deprived* (How about you go have your wisdom teeth removed without tranquilizer, then I might just consider having my quills spliced. As to the false lab in the wall… Let's just assume he meant it the other way round. Remember that. And… Safe sister?) *snap* (Claire!) *he makes a step towards Lucy, the madness in his eyes returns* Where is she?!


- In the professor's domicile… -

Rheinheim: *hears Remus enter his rooms and hastily instructs his wheelchair to head roughly for where he is, in anticipation to hear his status report - something is not quite right however* Welcome back, Rremus… Are you alone? End where did your arms go?
Remus: (I'm not even wondering anymore how he notices these things.) He decided to keep them as a trophy.
Rheinheim: Tsk… You know how hard it is for me to crreate nou arms for you. Why did you not- never mind. Why are you alone?
Remus
: She didn't make it. From what I could tell, she was quite badly damaged. The sword then got her and dropped her into a portal. *a spiteful tone creeps in his boulder voice* Just punishment for not achieving her goal, I'd say.
Rheinheim
: Zis is unacceptabel! Could you see where ze portal was leading to?
Remus: No. Though I'd guess it was probably Dimension S.
Rheinheim: And your objective? Did you get ze scrolls?!
Remus: … I… kind of had them-
Rheinheim: What does »kind of« mean?!
Remus: Well, she had them! She couldn't fulfil her task and instead stole mine!
Rheinheim: I don't care about your personal rrivalrries. You will go out zere end brring. Her! Back!!! *coughs heavily*
Remus: How am I supposed to do that all on my own and with her antenna broken from the EMP? She could be anywhere!
Rheinheim: She is not stupid, Rremus! If she is anywhere on ze world end rrequires our help, she will contact us. She has nano rrepair machines, verdammt nochmal! *he coughs again just as the wheelchair and the computer down the floor ping; for some reason, despite his blindness, he can »read« the display* It's her! She is… in ze Mediterranean Sea? Oh mein Gott… Rremus, take ze plane. She is prrobably floating on ze water wiz completely filled air tenks. Her body cannot handle zis for long. Go! Now!
Remus: *complies with a short bow and without a word*
Honour? That useless stigma people think it's worth taking damage for? Yeah, I've heard about it.

???:*she smiles at him* well of course you do, you just forgot is all.*she strokes her chin and then snaps her fingers* ooh, I know how you'll remember me. How about if I teach you some magic? Perhaps the memories should come flowing back then also you'll remember how to cast things.

*Down on the 3rd floor jasmine continues to repair Frank she's doing ok however without a blueprint she doesn't kniw if she missed something and keeps double checking to make sure she's doing it right.*
*On the 7th greg is helpining as many Clerics possible and they soon awaken it is noted that they are having trouble with many things. Urging them, Greg asks the apprentces to watch over their teachers and make sure they get rest*

*heading down the hall of the 8th floor*
Zack: seems we're coming up on the place.
Steven: good then I can get on with this and get healed.*hears Snow down the hall shouting * what do you suppose that is about?
Zack: I don't know…but I'm really not willing to find out. 
Steven: You may have to if a fight breaks out.  …Oh that reminds me, we need to check up on Rob once this is done.
Zack: eh, let Shadowblade do it. He should be back any second with the intruders to interragate them.*the 2 then continue down the hall towards Doc's lab*

*outside of Zot*
SB:*struggles to get up and avoid the portal*(not yet… I need to at least make sure these arms)*falls over again and feels rather unstable*(get…noticed)*he starts to sink into the portal below and struggles out of it. All he can see is a blur in front of him and hear is the ringing of bells* The sorrowful Ringing of Iron and Brazen…not to long ago I once danced to this, now…*he tries to regain focus* I don't know what to think of such a tune.*he finally manages to get to his feet and out of the portal for a few minutes more and drops a bottle of something down it.(I have no Idea if that will end up with where ever I dropped Illa however if it does…)*he begins to laugh for a moment and coughs more stuff up*Focus damnit!*he reaches for the arms and with one last burst he tosses them towards the enterance of Zot* That's it…I'm out. Take…care…guys…
*he then smiles and falls back into the portal and begins sinking into it*(hope my message gets to them all. I really don't want this to end on a bad note)*as his mind slips into bliss he closes his eyes and exhales falling into Dimension S. *as he decends into the blackness several hands catch him and take him to the positive side and lower him into the lake. A man in white comes in and nods to each of them and the figures that carried him in head back to the other side the white figure then heads to the tree and sits in a chair and near a table and begins to sip Tea.*
Man in White: and so we wait…
Never try to be the guy,otherwise everything will kill you!!!!
