And so the second part of the nasty dungeon crawler has ended. Bittersweet, as always! And once more it is well seen, what worked and what didn’t To some what is obvious, is completely under the radar for others. But nevertheless. Bring three puzzles to solve, and if anything else fails, hit the hard reset button with the big “Time’s up” text on it!
Massive thanks to the main players,  Those who managed to stay even for a little while:
Also to Lily and Aoemph, for the short, but still, pleasing appearance!

The temples of shattered dreamscapes: Cries of smoke and oil.

/ ?????????

 
In the cold street of Consequence, within the Residential area, Marvin Steelbound was standing, eyeing the building before him. He lit his cigarette, allowing the flame greedily travel closer to his lips, before parting them from the filter, to allow a small cloud escape into the dim sky. This was a messy case. It was dangerous to even stand here, but nevertheless, the man had to wait for any potential helping hands to solve the case of the troublesome flat. Many incoming reports have stated of maniacal laughter coming from the location, disturbing the piece. Even more so, since these events have started, the locals have grown somewhat… Malicious. Murder and Vice crimes have spiked. Detectives deduction led to believe that the source was here, but he couldn’t go alone. Knowing Hellifyno, he will be sure to become quick work for whatever awaits inside. This was a simple job. Get in, pacify the threat and just walk away with a report for the office. Surely the pay was high for such a simple task, but it was either that or highly unnecessary complications. Another huff from his cigarette. The man waited for others to arrive shortly, that is, of course, if the help will ever come.

-adorned in her doe brown duster lily made her way over following the directions on the poster as she emerged from around the backside of the blue moon inn, her blue reptilian gaze falling on the figure that looked to be patrolling outside of the building.-

The woman followed the directions,Listing them in her head nervously. Her yellow eyes looked up at the building,Her ears twitching hesitantly,She looked to see two figures there alrady.

“Once upon a time in a dark and -sketchy- ally, walked a very fine-”~Don’t do that~ spoke the alter ego, Abraham; into consciousness of Aöemph once again on today, this time cutting off his monologue. This was becoming frequent. Aö continued to walk, lightly disrespected by the comment. Although pride was swallowed. It’s a recipe for good decision-making in terms of the speed and alacrity with which one can manipulate alchemy, of course, this is strictly based on the amount of wizard-like practices Aöemph learned when traveling with magical beings of his past. A forced, obviously annoyed sigh coupled with an eye roll yielded a panoply of passive-aggressive residual spirits to form into a collected pale orb. This would be used as sort of a clairvoyant tracking system for concentrated and/or irregular pockets in the general energy of his surroundings. The translucent hue of this ethereal orb floated, its low mellifluous noise began to whisper in harmonies of degradation. The spell died. The spirits dispersed; leaving the caster, Aöemph, generally satisfied with the geometric affinity of whichever place in Consequence he would be traveling towards. His dark purple cloak silently shifted in the wind, the hood was drawn over his locks, hiding his head. Furthermore, he was just a man in a cloak. The hooded solivagant pushed just a little further. Into the residential area he would arrive. Seemingly like your average cult member, just randomly walking out of the woods and onto the street before the building. Aöemph questioned the man who had already arrived, golden eyes looked to his left and right before setting onto Marvin. He greeted him respectfully, a token bow was offered. “Greetings.” Aö quickly fell into an old habit, subconsciously yearning for a cigarette. “You hav
 
e a square I can borrow, yeah?” The 20 year old smirked while asking Marvin for a single cigarette if he had any to spare.

“I was wondering when some of you would show up.” He tapped the ashes off his smoke, and took another breath of nicotine, eyeing the new company. The hat partially hid his eyes. Keeping his hand in another pocket, he was a prime example how to dress well, yet not too obnoxiously. He rose the hand with the cigarette to indicate, that Marin had decided for the people to gather around here. His brown, almost red eyes then glanced at a line of windows located in third floor. There was light in there. Indeed, someone was active at this time of the day. The slightly dazed, crazed, insane people of the night sat in their corners obediently. Drooling, shaking, rocking back and forth. It was a poor sight indeed. “Marvin Steelbound. I am leading this case. Should we introduce ourselves, before we make this assault?” He took out his hand from pocket, opening a small case and offering a smoke to the man, who yearned. “Of course. I also suppose you would like your upfront pay as well.” The detective was ready to oblige. For the company would make this job that much more easier. A fine investment.

“..Hm..” She looked at Marvin,Then to Ao. She looked up at the man spoke. and remained silent,Preferring not to be the first to speak. She crossed her arms against her chest,Her eyes giving a faint glow as she stood in the night streets.

Oh great. Another open job. As if the last one so well. Maybe he’ll get a scar in a less crowded spot. Like his back instead of his face. Seemed he sported a more modern outfit for the scene of Consequence. Black jeans, white Henley, boots, and a black field jacket. He spotted a poster as he went to grab a bagel so, he might as well check it out. He only had his fingerless brawling gloves, his two pistols, and his belt. Seemed he was ditching the swords and axe for the sake of easing his weight and blending into the cityscape. Crumpling yo the wrapper for said bagel, he used it to wipe his mouth and beard before looking for this head detective. “Alright…. What’s fucked up in this city this time?” He asked upfront. What else could bring attention during the FaE invasion?

-glances at the other male who arrived and to the female before to marvin..”one question of many..the reward is that each or will it be split between those that attended?”
 
Aöemph
 
11/17 09:19PM
“I wouldn’t be opposed to the idea. Who knows what could be hiding in there.” Aöemph was nervous, he had already died once before. A fallen God was just as good as a human in some respects. Aö needed the money to pay off some of the wanted poster people, thus keeping his name clear for now. He quickly grabbed the square and ignited it. Puffing away the stresses of travel. “Appreciate you!” He smiled towards Marvin, then to Lunar. “Are you following me?” They had just met the night before.

She looked offended somewhat,And her ears lifted,”What..–Of course not! I was here before you.” She replied, Looking up to the lighted window nervously,

Mr. Steelbound looked at Lunar, seeing that she might not be the talking kind. He then glanced at Randall. “Whatever it is in the third floor, it is merely adding to the original induced insanity. But stay vigilant. Whatever lies there, has gotten to these people as you can see.” He pointed with his cigarette towards the drooling man in the street, and walked to his car to get out the 20 coins for each. “And as for the payment, miss. As promised, twenty coins for each.” he took out small envelopes, and placed them on the hood of his car, so that the heroes could take them. He then glanced at Aoemph and his comment. Having a predetermined drama could be a dead weight to the operation. But nevertheless, he needed all the help he could get.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 09:24PM
She shuddered at the sight of the drooling man,And turned to watch Marvin,Looking at the envelopes. She looked to the other’s,And then said softly,”Would it be ok if maybe..Uh..Mine could just stay out here,It be easier..Seeing as I could lose it or whatever.”
 
It would-

11/17 09:24PM
“Neat…. do ya ‘ave any vital info pertaining to this… series of cases.” He asked. Huh, seems his brief stint as a P.I. Was kicking in. Of course he walked over to the car. Plucking an envelope and feeling it within his hand. Weighting it as well as doing the same to the others. What? Maybe one of them had more than the rest. But nonetheless he took his original envelope and tucked it into his jacket. He also peered back at Lunar and smirked. “I mean… I could hold it for ya…” he joked.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 09:26PM
Her ears flattened and she huffed,To nervous for jokes,Looking downwards.
 
Aöemph
 
11/17 09:27PM
Aöemph was burdened by acute bodily misfortune—of a spiritual disorder which oppressed him, and of an earnest desire to recreate his ailing body. This burden made it unable to stand a chance against any sort of zombie like herd or whatever lurked within; he needed friends, allies, someone who wouldn’t let him die in there. Although his past gleamed with the previous glorified flesh that sang to him, much of it spilled by his own will through weapons of his own creation, with motives of his own lust. Nevertheless, this seemed like a worthy conquest. Too lighten the mood further he continued towards Lunar. “When I return to the Inn we can brag about how much money we made.” Noticing the glace Marvin gave him, Aöemph threw shade towards him. “I’ll buy myself some boots with this.” He laughed, clearly ignoring the serious nature of the job.
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 09:28PM
“….. I’m kiddin’.” He saw the flattened ears. That smirk fading. “You…. Alright? Ain’t gonna ‘ave an anxiety attack before we go in there, are ya?” He was sincere about his question. “Don’t Want deadweight not for my safety but for everyone else’s.”
 
Aöemph
 
11/17 09:29PM
“We’re all on the same team right?” He asked collectively. What if one of them could fall prey to the murderous energy. He felt it wise to learn each other now.

11/17 09:29PM
“Now I want this to be clear! This is a simple job. We storm in, secure the location, arrest the bastard, who is doing whatever that is tarnishing these people, and walk away with no additional complications. Do I make myself clear? Do so, and you walk away with an easy buck before midnight!” His voice was stern. It was clear that detective himself wanted it all to go smoothly and as possible. “Do I make myself clear?” He eyed each hero, before Lunar commented. “Of course, miss. I will pay the full hundred after the job then. This shouldn’t take long.” He began gathering the envelopes, that were overwhelming the amount of heroes who might be willing to take the up-front payment immediately. “Just make sure, you remind me.” He then looked at Randall. Smart man, some lightheartedness will do good for the morale. He gave a nod of approval, and dropped his cigarette, stepping on it, and breathing out the last cloud of smoke. Marvin then decided to add to the lightness of the conversation. “Of course, a man needs to keep himself in the finest presentable state!” the detective glanced at Lily. “So, is everyone ready? Perhaps there are some skills we could use, or some information I must know about possible trouble we might run in. Because god knows what scene we might find in there.”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 09:29PM
“What..? No..I’m not gonna have an ‘Anxiety Attack,’..” Her soft voice raising to a normal level she stepped back from the group,”I’ll be fine..Jeez..”
 
Aöemph
 
11/17 09:31PM
“Ready detective.” Aöemph nodded. Bringing it down a few notches.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 09:31PM
“..” She gave a small nod,Than looked towards the building once more,Giving a soft sigh.
 
Lily Ann Black (Lady W.Duskore)
 
11/17 09:32PM
lily waves her hand..”count me out thank you” giving all those present a nod of her head in a mark of good luck she turns on her heels and head off back in the direction of the blue moon-
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 09:33PM
“…Wow..” She watched the woman leave. Uncertain.

11/17 09:34PM
“I mean…. as it is a buildin’…. I’m good at hand to hand so…. I could take point after breach? Then Detective whatyername, then girl who says she fine when she ain’t, then the prick that gave my best soldier a living weapon.” He pointed to him, Marvin, Lunar, and Aö. Suggesting a breach formation.

11/17 09:35PM
“Anxiety attack, huh?” Marvin, closed the car door, and locked it, as the payment was slowly passed around. The man then turned towards the building eyeing the flat with an almost hypnotizing stare. The man was surely tense. “Alright, boys and girls. We stay silent, and don’t alarm the neighbors, and more so the one who resides in the flat of interest.” he began to walk towards the door, that was strangely positioned on the side of the building, not in the center of it as traditional architecture made it. “I will do the talking as per the protocol, but something tells me, that the door will have to be broke open.” He looked at Randall. “You look like a tough guy. I want you to be the main intimidation.” He then glanced at Lily, and shook his head. “Well, smart move to know if you can’t stomach this.” he then glanced at Randall. The small remark of his name passed by. There was no room for personal issues. “Lets go.” The detective, walked forth and opened the door, leading the party.

11/17 09:39PM
She followed,Silent,ears perked. Her eyes narrowed and she looked over her surroundings. “..” Her eyes sweeped over the walls and floors,Unsure of what to do. So she just followed,And remained tense,If anything were to happen. She made soft steps,Not wanting to alert anyone,Causing them to leave. She inhaled uneasily,Letting the breath out slowly.
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 09:40PM
“Does it now?” He raised a brow at the door comment. To him, the less noticeable, most likely the better. So the Ex-thief approached it. Crouching as he kept his ear to the door. Randall May only be human but his Perception and senses were beyond that. Hearing the lightest vibration, the faintest offset breeze, the smallest footfall that isn’t theirs. But as Marvin walked through he stood up, falling in with the rest.

11/17 09:43PM
The interior was old, and grimy. It was clear that the rundown building was a place, where poor resided. The lack of sane people within the city only added to the run down state. A wheel chair, clearly stolen, was now serving like a small table for empty bottles and a tray of cigarettes. The location reeked of piss and nicotine. Added with nauseating stench of cheap alcohol. “Always happens in places like these…” Marvin silently remarked, whispering to others. They could hear by the second floor, that neighbors were having some nasty coupling session on the other side. As run down as it was, the place was lively. Sounds of slight choking reverbed in the halls, as they passed to the third floor. The run down aspen doors with number three were before them, in the small stair way. Marvin knocked. “Reginald! This is the detective department of Consequence. Open the door now! There won’t be another warning.” Then he waited and looked at the heroes, and nodded towards Reginald, pulling out his revolver and silently counting down. “Three, Two…” Soon the nod would be given to break into the flat, that they stood by. The moaning downstairs was intense and almost inhuman like.

11/17 09:46PM
She grimaced,Tapping a finger against her thigh nervously,In subtle,quick movements. She looked down,Thinking,If anything trying to drown out the noises.

11/17 09:50PM
And on three, he would take out his own revolver. It’s make, a Mateba 6. Pistol up In one hand Randall decided maybe a more delicate approach to the door. Doing the same as he did the other door. Listening closely for faint ticking or any form of tension string to see if the door was rigged. If it wasn’t he would give it a simple back kick and sweep and clear. However if some form of trap was present, Randall took out the ‘Master Keys’ his ever faithful lockpicks and swiftly work in the door:
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 09:53PM
She watched the door,And stood at the side,Tense. She lifted her ears,And they rotated,Picking up every sound possible,She gave a soft sigh of annoyance as the noises came suddenly,Filling her ears.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 09:55PM
The door was not rigged, and with tactical maneuvers the part was able to march into the flat, as Marvin exclaimed. “Down on the gro… What in the heavens…” He slightly lowered his gun, as before them was a room, with no furniture. In the center of it was a painting, before which a dead painter was lying on the ground. His face seemed to be eaten away. The detective walked forth, eyeing the walls, that were made to attempt a look of lavish lifestyle. On their right was a turn towards a corridor, across the room were two doors, next to each other. The left side held two windows, reflecting the room like mirrors due to the darkness outside. Then the stench kicked, in. Possibly from the body by the painting, which was surrounded by candles. “Examine the area. Let me know if you find something. There might be a perpetrator still around.”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 09:57PM
“..” She felt an uncertain feeling that it was a trap,And that cheesily,The door would slam shut behind them. She stepped inside,Her ears twitching. Her sharp eyes looked over the area as she walked,Tentatively around the room.
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 10:01PM
“We ID ‘im later…” he nodded to Steelbound before approaching the left door in the corridor. Once more listening. “One of us should check the other Room. Just in case the the perp makes a bolt for it. Whether the group followed his suggestion or not he would kick the door. Sweeping the new room.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:02PM
Randall had the choice of the two doors, one closer to the windows, and one closer to the hall way. The painting in the middle seemed rather eerie. Then it indeed happened. As all three of them had stepped inside, the doors shut close, and behind them another door. The shutting sounds went on, further and further and further away. Which seemed most illogical. The candles flickered, and the detective rushed towards the door, trying to open it, smashing against them, but with no avail. “Shit!” Marvin cursed. He should have known better, than to simply walk in without precautions. “Looks like we are stuck on this side! Check the windows!”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:04PM
She gave a small yelp,But recovering,Did as was told,She felt the windows,Growling in annoyance and uncertainty,Her ears flattened against her head,And she turned,Looking at the painting.
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 10:05PM
He too flinched at the sudden shutting of the doors. So he proceeded with breaching the door by the windows. Attempting the knob before kicking it in.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:05PM
“What if..” She said slowly,Precariously,”What if..What if the painting,IS a message..A..Way out..”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:07PM
The painting was a portrait of sorts. Empty and hallow. It was soaked with sadness and fruitless anger, almost mind bending in a sense. Whispers were almost coming out from it. Blood of the artist, formerly known as Reginald, was adding to the sad scene. The knob turned and the door was open revealing a bedroom for one person. There was a bed, a desk, chair and wardrobe. And a window on the opposite side. Marvin, looked at Lunar, and walked next to her, as Randall was in the other room. “Maybe so. But why would an artist, serving as a bait, would give us a key to escape?”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:09PM
“..The people..Or..Whatever we are after..Are Insane,Yes?” She stated,”So the killing could just be something they..Just did.” “Plus..He could possibly hold something,Although,I wouldn’t be fond of checking a corpse..If he holds something,” She huffed,”The painting could be something..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 10:10PM
His eyes focused on the wardrobe and desk as he cleared the corners. Still not lowering his gun for any reason. His hand slowly reached out to fling open the wardrobe doors and cabinets before searching its contents.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:12PM
Marvin did see the subtext of Lunar’s comment and crouched, turning the faceless man, and checking the pockets. “Hmm…” Soon enough he took out three items. a wallet, a key, and a camera. So we have these. “I wonder what the key is for. and why camera? We should check it.” The detective commented. Randall found the wardrobe filled with what it was meant for. Clothes. In some pockets, he stumbled upon twenty seven silver coins. A small note book, and a pen. Some accessories, a hat, and old winter boots.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:13PM
“..” She reached for the camera,Looking through the photos uneasily.
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 10:16PM
“Don’t mind if I do…” he said as he pocketed the coin. As well as looking through the notebook and dismantled the pen to see if anything was hidden inside. After that he made his way to the desk, searching it as well.
 
As well as tearing the matress and lifting it to check the bedframe.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:18PM
There was one file. A video feed. But it gae nothing as the file was corrupted. It did appear, that at some parts, Reginald was asking. “Elise? Can you talk to me?” Static came out, Incomprehensible, until a distorted voice, said something backwards. The desk had two drawers. One was locked, the other held sketches, of faces. Distorted. Grotesque. Once the mattress was cut open, bed bugs crawled out, as a light stench of urine was felt coming out of it. There was nothing else inside.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:19PM
“…” She replayed the part where they said something backwards,Seeing if her ears could pick it up,
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 10:21PM
“Fuckin’… gross…” he muttered. Taking the sketches as well for later. He would then exit the room and shut the door behind him. This time opening the door closer to the corridor.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:22PM
I? ?a?m? ?h?e?r?e?.? ?S?o?m?e?o?n?e? ?i?s? ?c?o?m?i?n?g?.? ?G?i?n?m?o?c? ?s?i? ?e?n?o?e?m?o?s?.? ?E?r?e?h? ?m?a? ?I?.? The recording was hard to pick up, maybe a different action had to be made by Linar. Marvin looked over her shoulder. Randall would find that the other door is locked.
 
“I Am Here… Someone is Coming..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 10:24PM
And with that, the door was kicked. Clearing the corners and blind spots within.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:25PM
“What was answering Reginald?” The detective murmured, and eyed Randall, going on about his own routine. The door was sturdy, indicating that it was meant to be opened towards the man. Thus the kick slightly went trough his bones and was most unsuccessful.
 
Zera La Fae
 
11/17 10:25PM
Hearing voices outside the locked door she is stuck behind, Zera starts pounding on the door with her fist. “HEY! Can anyone hear me?” She jiggles the handle of the locked bathroom door. She had been lured there and stuck inside for what felt like hours. The blood filled toilet and tub starting to make her feel queasy. “C’mon, someone open the door!”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:26PM
Her ears lifted and she turned sharply towards the shouts,”Uh…..Is it..Someone..Real? Should we go see..?”
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 10:29PM
“FUCK!” He fell backwards before jumping back to his feet and dusting himself off. However he heard the voice and raised his pistol. “Alright, Alright, stand back and keep ya hands up.” He said, taking a round out his ammo pouch and loading the bullet in. It had the strength of a shotgun buckshot shell to breach the door. So… he cover his face with an arm, and fired at the door knob.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:30PM
The detective jumped, and looked at the locked door, which Randall was trying to kick. “Stay put! We will try and get you out!” The detective let Lunar keep the camera and ran to the door. trying to figure out what to do. Seeing Randall’s failure he grunted. “No luck from here! The door open’s to the other side! Can you try and break open from your part?” With Randall’s shot, the door knob broke, destroying any leverage to open the door from their side. Things turned from better to worse. “Shit!” Marvin exclaimed.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:31PM
She turned to Randall,And her ears rang,She covered them and winced,”Ah..Fuck.” She dropped the camera and uncovered her ears,She looked to the door,”..”
 
She walked towards the door,Chewing her lip,Hard,In thought.
 
“The key..Can I see it?”
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 10:35PM
He sighed and holstered his pistol. “Well… unless somebody has a crowbar….” he slowly extended his left hand. And…… nothing. “Oh c’mon ya fickle sonuvabitch…” he grumbled and tried his other hand and there it was. The Sister of Ice materialized in his hand. A sword with the ability of…. well…. ice. Simply waiting for the woman to try things on her end first.
 
Zera La Fae
 
11/17 10:36PM
“Like I haven’t tried!?” She shouted a little louder than was necessary due to the ringing in her ears from the gun blast. She was irritated and the sickening feeling that she had almost joined the mutilated bodies of the women in the tub did not help the redhead’s mood. She wasn’t sacred – she was pissed off. “I already tried to jimmy the lock and had zero luck. I’ve tried everything I could think of with no luck short of saying ‘Open Sesame’ with zero luck.”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:37PM
How will they get the trapped woman out now? This was indeed a mess. Marvin glanced at Lunar, and gave her the black key, with French ornaments on it’s arm side. It was an old lock key. Somewhat meant for larger containers or door. The color scheme seemed fitting with most doors of the house. Indeed, the key could be leading to the locked room. The detective glanced at the glacial sword, Randall had. Most peculiar. Might come in handy. “Good! Stay positive! We will see what we can do, miss!” Marvin shouted, and looked at Lunar. Maybe they will manage to open the door. In worst case, they had Randall.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:38PM
“So,The doors locked from which side..The inside?”
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 10:42PM
“Locked from the inside… so… slide it under?” He shrugged at Lunar. “I can always shatter it.”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:43PM
Ok..So..Im going to slide the key under the door. M’am..You could see if it unlocks it.”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:44PM
“If the door was locked from inside, the woman inside would have the key. Try it.” The man invited Lunar to unlock, since she came to this idea. There was little indicators of it being trapped. Since the voice within the bathroom, seemed freshly locked in. Perhaps in rush? perhaps the video feed was talking about them. That camera was worth investigation. “Either way, don’t loose the key.” He gave a glance towards Randall, and his eyes slightly widened, looking past the man’s shoulder, at the windows. “This…” maybe they will get to it once, the door is open. “Guys step back, so she can open it.”
 
Zera La Fae
 
11/17 10:47PM
She couldn’t help but roll her eyes at the staying positive bit. She came because she was invited to see art, not become a victim of some deranged psychopath and get trapped in a nightmare. She bent down and picked up the key that was slide under the door. “Well, here goes nothing…” With a deep exhalation she inserted the key into the lock and turned. Hopefully this would work…
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:48PM
One of the most satisfying clicks echoed in the room, as the door was unlocked.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 10:49PM
She tilted her head back against the wall,In relief,And stood. Stepping from besides the door.

11/17 10:53PM
“Finally…” he mumbled. Taking his sword and with the flick of his wrist, if dissipated. Then reappeared. “Goddamn…. sister… curse… bullshit….” he muttered and tried again several times until finally the sword was gone. Reaching for his revolver as the Woman trapped inside walked out. His arm bent at the elbow so if anything, a round were go into her gut.
 
Zera La Fae
 
11/17 10:58PM
A breath of relief is sighed as the lock clicks open. “Mesi bondye.” The petite woman, not much more than four and a half feet tall, pushed the door open slowly. Bruises were starting to form on her arms and face, accompanying a lip that had been busted open at some point. She held the key up. “Thanks.”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 10:59PM
The bathroom was a bloody mess. Literally. A cracked mirror across the room. Closed toilet seat, upon which presumably Zera had rested, plotting a plan for escape. A sink below the cracked mirror, and next to it a bath, filled with body parts, cut up, almost as if to be gotten rid of. However certain rush had left the job unfinished. Marvin glanced at Randall, seeing that he was holding Zera at Gunpoint. it was a fine moment to ask. “One of Reginald’s victims, I presume.” he looked at Randall. “Sir, I believe that she has been trough quite a lot. No need for such hostility. Maybe she can help us with getting out from this place?”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 11:01PM
She gave a tight smile,And a nod. Looking at the bathroom,She flinched,Shutting the door. “..The video,Said a name..” She spoke,Remembering the camera,As Reginald was said. “Elise.. I think it was.”
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 11:04PM
Being six foot four, the man practically dwarfed the woman. So the pistol was indeed holstered. And seeing the injuries he lowered a bit. “Are you alright? Anywhere else you’re hurt? I got some medical knowledge and… well… I do have a spare health vial should ya want….” he said checking her for any more injuries. “And a name…… what’s your name?” He asked before looking back at Steelbound. “And what exactly does Reginald do? Ya never told us. And any correlation between his victims?”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 11:05PM
Could the woman they freed be Elise? If so, how did the redhead know that they were coming. Marvin’s eyes narrowed, awaiting for an answer to this particular detail.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 11:08PM
Oof,Gtg}
 
Zera La Fae
 
11/17 11:14PM
Zera shook her head. “Bruising for the most part. I shouldn’t be too hindered by it, so save the vial. Someone may really need it later.” She recognized Randall but couldn’t put a name to the face. She would often see him in the Red Sun Inn when she frequented the Inn to sketch after first arriving in Hellifyno. “Zera La Fae. And you?” Her cheek twitched a bit. She couldn’t stop herself from saying the surname. Hopefully he wouldn’t confuse her with one of the little pests from hell that have been running a muck lately and causing mischief. She kept talking in hopes that he would miss the second part of her name just in case. “I got an invitation to come from some guy named Reginald. He made himself out to be some art aficionado or something…only it seems that instead of painting or sculpting he made his art with corpses and had plans to incorporate me into his next exhibit.” She rubbed her sore wrists being just as lost, if not more so, than the rest of them.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 11:17PM
“Marvin Steelbound. Detective. So do you know anything about a woman called, Elise? It seems rather important detail, connected to this man.” he looked at the faceless man, fallen by the painting. “Was he acting strangely? Any idea, how he might have turned out like this?” As they spoke, Lunar, was bound to faint. Perhaps it was from stress. Perhaps it was from tension. Perhaps this was too much for her. The man ran to catch her fall. “Hey! You alright! Damn! She’s out cold!”
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 11:25PM
“Randall C. B. Wayne. Not detective.” He smirked offering out his hand. He had also seen her before. Usually at a corner table at the Inn. Her nose buried in a sketchbook. Listening to her carefully. “Ya still ‘ave that letter? So i can give it a once over just in case?” He asked before he too spotted Lunar faint. Extending a hand to help catch her. “I knew it…” he muttered before tossing the woman over his shoulder. “I’ll… guess I’ll hold onto ‘Er?” He shrugged.
 
Zera La Fae
 
11/17 11:30PM
She shook her head. “First I’ve heard the name, unfortunately. If this Elise is important to him, she might be family? Or a lover?” She took Randall’s hand and shook it firmly. She may be small but she’s got a decent grip. “Pleasure. Mind catching me up on what’s been going on?” She fished around in her bag to see if she could find the invite. She glanced up from her searching over at the woman that, she assumed based on the voice on the other side of the door, had slid her the key underneath the door. “She gonna be okay?”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 11:31PM
“Please do.” he gently passed the girl to Randall, and opened up the camera. “So I suppose Reginald was attempting to communicate with someone called Elise trough the camera. I don’t suppose you have any better ideas?” He pondered, and eyed Zera. “So far we are stuck here. So much is going on. A dead artist, as strangely build hallway and… Windows with no reflections. I have been meaning to tell you that as well.” Marvin rubbed his nose bridge.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 11:33PM
{And back,} She awoke,Blinking her yellow eyes,”Erm…” She said akwardly,”Can I..Stand..Myself,Please..
 
Awkwardly-
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 11:35PM
Puts down Lunar slowly. (My turn to poof for a bit, brb!)
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 11:37PM
She gave a soft huff,”Why the hell was I in that guys arms..”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 11:38PM
“You did pass out. And that would have been a shame to leave you behind. Could we please try and concentrate on the matter? Who knows if there is time running out on us!” Marvin tapped his foot and tossed the camera at Lunar. “Do you remember what happened at that video?
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 11:39PM
She gave a yelp,And caught it. “Reginald called for someone,Elise..Than someone,Backwards,Said,’I am here,Someone is coming,’..”
 
“The rest was distorted.”
 
Zera La Fae
 
11/17 11:41PM
“You feeling okay?” Normally she would offer a friendly smile to the woman that just recovered but she hadn’t been in the mood to do such as of late. “So he’s trying to reach her via the camcorder? Or vice versa?” The redhead frowned a bit. This seemed like something out of a horror movie one of her friends loves to watch. She wished she had paid a bit more attention to his ramblings about the plots now.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 11:42PM
She looked up at the woman,”I’m feeling fine,” She answered,”And I felt fine earlier..Maybe uneasy,But that’s all,” She stated,”So why the hell I passed out,I dunno.”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 11:44PM
“Most likely. No matter if hostile or not, if she is able to communicate trough this camera, we should try and speak to her, perhaps gain some information, as walking the hallway might end up with more traps, knowing our first impressions. I don’t even wish to indulge about us having no reflections…” the detective glanced at Lunar. “Could be a subconscious shock. There are some who act tough, but the body gives in. Yours seemed to be a light case.”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 11:44PM
“..” She looked at the camera,”You want me to speak to someone through this?”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 11:45PM
“You have another option?” Marvin folded his arms, and rested on one of his legs, looking at Zera, presumably, the victim might know a better option. By far she has been here the longest.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
11/17 11:47PM
“..Well,I can try to speak to someone through the camera,” She looked at it,”And if that doesn’t work.” She thought,And paused. “The windows could have something to do with it maybe,Seeing as they don’t reflect.”
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 11:51PM
He snapped out of his brief trance and nearly fell backwards. How’ve rhe caught himself and shook his head. “Fuckin’… blackouts again…” he muttered before looking about the group. “I miss anythin’?”
 
Zera La Fae
 
11/17 11:51PM
She felt unsettled with the way the detective looked at her. “What?” He was giving her that look she would often get when she had paint in her hair or charcoal on her face. She kicked herself mentally a bit, she wasn’t normally so defensive. She didn’t have a clue who Elise was. Unconsciously she started to hum a tune that went by the same name as their mystery woman they were trying to find.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
11/17 11:53PM
“This place is messed up. No way, that a single madman, could have managed to create such place. Be careful. So far we might have been having it easy. Who knows what will happen if we speak to Elise, or mess with the windows?” Marvin rubbed his chin, and eyed where his reflection would be. It almost seemed to him, that on the other side was a different room entirely. A room, they could visit somehow. “Not much.” The detective said and sighed. He had a bad feeling about them lingering too much. Maybe it was just false intuition. Zera’s voice echoed in the room. The acoustic was very fine.
 
Randall Wayne
 
11/17 11:57PM
He raised a brow as Marvin stared at the Mirror. And then, he did so too. Slowly he reached out to give the glass a tap before sighing. “Hmm…. we ‘ave a recordin’, demented pictures, body parts, and a livin’ Victim….. seems we are shit outta luck…” he said to himself.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:01AM
As Randall tapped the window, the room felt slightly different. Changed. Shifted. But what exactly had changed, wasn’t purely clear. The detective turned his gaze towards Lunar, and took the camera from her hands. “So who is doing the talking?” He asked.
 
Zera La Fae
 
00:10AM
She cringed a bit, not liking being referred to as a victim. She never had. Raising an eyebrow, she walked over to where the detective was looking at the camera. “Something new pop up?”
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:10AM
His medallion began to jingle a bit. Something magical or otherworldly seemed to happen. And to figure out what changed. He followed his amulet. Walking about the flat seeing where his necklace spiked in activity.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:13AM
The activity was at the center of the room by the painting. Marvin tossed the camera to Lunar. “Here, you speak and record.” he then looked at Zera. “Something tells me that we are don’t have the liberty to be laid back. Keep your guard up! Randell, be ready to save the one recording!” they had to act at some point. Midnight was coming, and goosebumps were covering Marvin’s arms.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:14AM
She felt the change,And froze. Looking around,Taking the camera,She went through it,Seeing if the change..Had affected the camera as well.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:15AM
The camera still had the same recording. Nothing has changed about that.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:15AM
“..Huh.” She clicked he video,Just in case she missed anything.
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:16AM
And to the painting he went. Sending a nod to Marvin. Unlatching the guard of his holster to ease access to the Mateba. He gave the painting a tap before looking at it in general. Was that it? Or maybe was it Reginald?
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:17AM
Once more the video showed the man filming the room, as he asked. “Elise are you here?” A static, a flicker, a strange sound responded. G?i?n?m?o?c? ?s?i? ?e?n?o?e?m?o?s?.? ?E?r?e?h? ?m?a? ?I? The video ends there.
 
The painting hadn’t changed as well, still with the eerie portrait and the dead faceless man next to it.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:18AM
“..” She looked to the bedroom,And stood,Sliding inside the room,Ears perked. She looked through the bedroom again.
 
Zera La Fae
 
00:22AM
A slow grin spread across her face. She may appear to be rather aloof and spacey but she was always cautious, always observing her surroundings and this in it. Not being able to see anything much beyond the bloody bathroom she steps up to the painting to look at it. That was the reason why she came or at least that’s what the original pretense was. “No eyes, or ears..nose…or even mouth.” An eyebrow quirks up momentarily to observe it further. “It’s as if the subject were stripped not only of his senses but of his identity.”
 
Zera La Fae
 
00:23AM
*surroundings and those in it
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:24AM
She looked at the torn bed,And grimaced,”That’s disgusting as hell,” Her yellow eyes flicked from the closet,To the drawer.
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:24AM
“Mhm, Like our friend ‘ere….” he motioned to the corpse as he nodded to Zera’s comment. Flipping the panting to see behind it. As well as giving a light shake to see if it had an extra weight within.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:25AM
In the bedroom Lunar saw a bed, a desk, wardrobe and window. Untouched. The air was eerie there as well. Filling her with slight sensation of fear and regret. “I swear to god. Do we have any ideas at all? I highly doubt that some one will be coming to save us, seeing how the doors are shut behind us and not openable!” Lunar was in the bedroom. The main room had a painting with the dead man in the middle. One wall had two windows,, opposite of it was a passage to a long walkway. Two doors to the left from the passage, leading to bedroom and bathroom. And on the other side, locked doors, from which the original party had entered. Candles were flickering around the painting. The walls were beautifully decorated with ornament. The bed was not torn, strangely. Everything seemed untouched. It was yet to be known why.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:28AM
She opened the closet,Looking around at it’s contents,She moved the untouched clothes,
 
“…..” She then turned on her heel,Looking at the bed.
 
“What.”
 
“The,”
 
“Fuck..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:30AM
As Lunar made her way to the bedroom, he moved to the Bathroom again. Perhaps that bloody mess changed?
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:31AM
“..” She looked at the bed,Took a deep breath,And returned her attention to the closet.
 
Zera La Fae
 
00:33AM
“What have you all searched so far? We still have the key. Anything else you think it could go to?” She looked down at the key that was still in her hand. There had to be something that they were overlooking.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:35AM
“I’m looking in the bedroom right now,” She called from the room,”No body has checked the hallway.”
 
Alatar
 
00:35AM
“HELLO?” Yelled a deep voice from the bathroom, “I’m covered in dead body!” The voice was almost disstreced but was defenitly worried. “I’m in the bathroom”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:36AM
“..But?”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:36AM
And indeed the voice came. At one point something had changed I the surroundings. Marvin rushed to the bathroom. “Wait, what?” he looked at Zera. “What the fuck?”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:37AM
She peeked her head from the bedroom,”Just like–….Guys..We are in a completely different place..We’re HERE..But..Not..”
 
Zera La Fae
 
00:38AM
“Oh god..” Zera heads back to the bathroom, thoroughly confused. She had been alone in the bathroom for hours raising all sorts of ruckus. She was sure she was the only one in there there. Well, the only one alive at least.
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:39AM
“Oh fuck!” He said rolling up a sleeve to help yoink the person in the tub by the hair.
 
Alatar
 
00:40AM
“Hi” Alatar said, his cloak covered in bits of body and blood. Alatar’s face was smeared in blood making his already scarred face even more scary. He winced as he was pulled by the head, “Ow”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:41AM
At this point the detective panicked. He was good at solving normal cases, but this was utterly insane? How was he supposed to work with this? How long have they been here? They haven’t moved an inch! This was bad.. This was very bad! Marvin stepped back, pressed his back against the wall, and sat down, slightly laughing in panic. “Ehehe… This is madness… This shouldn’t be…”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:42AM
“..Marvin,” She walked to him,”I know..I know..But..Really..This isn’t a good time to panic..we..Need a way out..We need you for that..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:43AM
Oh he wasn’t the only one with scars on his face. And whether it came to who was scarier…. eh, the jury was out on that one. “Listen, I don’t care who ya are, just help figure what the fuck is going on.” And with that, Randall went back to where his necklace spiked. Knocking on the floor. Perhaps something was in there? Or….. above him?
 
Alatar
 
00:46AM
Alatas dissapeared for a second and reappeare but this time in clean clothing. He checked he had his legendary sword, good it was there. He approached Marvin, “Hey there”
 
*Alatar
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:48AM
She lifted the bed,Once more. Unsure,If anything had changed. She looked back and forth between the bed,desk,closet,And window.
 
Zera La Fae
 
00:48AM
“Creepy new guy popped up out of the bath and a detective that is starting to go bonkers. Lovely.” He had a point though. They were getting no where. She starting with hall, she went around looking at things carefully trying to find anything that might clue them in as to what they were looking for and a way to get out of this damned place.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:49AM
“I fucking told you not to mess with those windows!” He grabbed his head! “Fuck knows where we are now! Might be at the end of our rope here!” He pressed his face in his palms. “We were supposed to be in and out! That fucking simple!” As Randall looked up, there was a simple chandelier, unlit, still beautiful. The man exhaled. “You are right. Panicking won’t do us good… I’m… I’m fine. Just let me take a breather…” He looked at Alatar, who was drenched in blood of murdered women. How in the hell, did he end up here? This was making less and less sense with every moment. The detective grabbed his head. He waved his hand, hiding the face. “you seem rather calm about this situation…” Hope was fading with every moment, they have fruitlessly stumbled upon only more questions than answers. Clues are to be sought. Maybe reflecting on what happened might help Zera?
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:51AM
She walked from the room,Grabbing the camera,She went back into the bedroom,Feeling dumb as she spoke to the recording screen. “Hello? If anyone is here,Uh..Shit. We need help?”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:52AM
The camera recorded. as Lunar spoke.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
00:53AM
“God damn it! I don’t have time for this,So fucking speak already!” She cursed at the camera,Giving it a slight shake.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:54AM
Lunar shook the camera as it recorded.
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:56AM
An audible sigh left the man. Standing upright as he stared at the wall. This wa shuts a bit drawn out now.
 
“I’m gonna break….
 
“A fucking window”
 
Zera La Fae
 
00:57AM
“Sweetie, its not a magic eight ball, shaking it isn’t going to help.” She looked at Marvin. “Being calm is better than Panicking. Panicking leads to mistakes.” She let out a slow breath. “Okay, you said things were different, that they changed. What changed? Where exactly have you not checked out yet.”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
00:59AM
“Are you fucking with me? Look what you touching window just did!” Marvin stood up and looked at Zera. “We found a dead body, and this guy, from that.” he pointed at Alatar. “Perhaps an alternate reality, I presume?”
 
Randall Wayne
 
00:59AM
He sighed. “Well do YOU gotta better idea!?” He glared at Marvin.
 
 
Alatar
 
01:00AM
“Yeah” his face changed, “What about my felow assasins?”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:01AM
And then it happened. Whispers ensued. Surrounding every person in the room. The candles flickered… The midnight had come… It was eerie… Very eerie…
 
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:01AM
I … IT T it WAs was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was was Strange? It w.. It was! ScARY!
 
A blood chilling scream filled the room, and the walls began to move, as if something was crawling beneath them.
 
Alatar
 
01:03AM
Alatar drew his sword, The Last Judgement and turned round in a tight circle
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:04AM
“Oh fuck you.” He growled. Who did he say this to? Who knew. Perhaps the things that are IN THE WALLS. His pistol was drawn and he loaded a few bullets. “I hate this shit…”
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:08AM
Oil tainted hands began to sprawl out from windows from walls, and from floor. And even ceiling. Hall way at this point seemed to be safest point, as they were consuming the room. Marvin’s eyes opened, as he shouted. “Run!” He pushed Lunar, so she would run as well, “Get the heck out of here!” Greedily the limbs consumed Reginald’s body, as it sank within the dark embrace. Like an unstoppable wave, they closed the heroes with grand speeds. There was little time to thing.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:11AM
She backed up against the wall,A slight growl leaving her lips. Her ears fattened against her head. “What the fuck..” She tensed,Not even barely able to process what was happening,She remained frozen against th wall,Camera in hand.
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:11AM
He didn’t have to tell him twice. Randall immediately ran to the door. Trying to see if this time it would open.
 
Alatar
 
01:11AM
Alatar dissapeared and shortly reappeared in the hallway
 
Zera La Fae
 
01:12AM
She turned around trying to figure out what was going on. The scream went straight to her spine, sending the hairs on her arm on end. “Lovely.” Using an elastic that was around her wrist she pulls back her hair as she stairs at the walls. “The shit’s always gotta hit the fan doesn’t it?” She set out running with the others, dodging the hands that were reaching out towards them.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:12AM
She blinked,Shaking her head and running,Dropping the camera,At the moment not caring whether that was a mistake or not.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:14AM
So then: Alatar at this point had made the wise choice, as the hall way was still accessible, since the arms were furthest from that. Lunar was pressing her back next to the hal way. The hands were quick, and might consume her if she didn’t act. Randall was in deep trouble, as arms were almost touching the man, there were milliseconds to act. Marvin shouted! “You idiots! Get over here! Now!” The hands were very nimble. Grand risk was for Randall, moderate for Marvin and Lunar.
 
Alatar
 
01:15AM
Alatar sheethed his sword and looked around
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:16AM
She looked back at Randall,”..” She remained in shocked silence,And slowly stepped further into the hallway,Ears slowly raising,
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:17AM
“Don’t you dare call me an idiot, ya sleazy fuck!” He shouted as he adjusted his course to follow Marvin.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:18AM
“..” She looked back,Turning at the back of the dark hallway,Unsure if they were stuck in a dead end.
 
Marvin Steelbound [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:18AM
As Alatar looked, the hands were rushing at him. They were completely consuming the room, eating it away. Marvin ran towards Randal, and pushed Lunar as well towards the Hallway to ensure their safety. Making a twisting motion. He helped Randall in his endeavor, for there was little time to be slow. Those hands were indeed fast! Said arms slid along Marvin’s leg. A scream of agony, as the man fell! “Run! You fools!” He shouted, as the arms were embracing him, sliding in his throat, eating the man alive. The wave of limbs were washing towards the heroes. They had to act. NOW!
 
Marvin had died.
 
Zera La Fae
 
01:22AM
Zera slid past one last hand and grabbed Lunar and helped her up as she ran down the hallway. “Anyone got any ideas?” She still had the key from before, maybe it would work on the door that led out…or would lead them to their doom.
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:22AM
“Austin- I mean, Marvin, FUCK!” Seems he had a bad case of deja vu. Briskly making his way into the hallway and falling in beside Lunar. Looking about to see what direction to go. “We can try the door we came in through!?” He asked as he ran with the pair.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:24AM
The limbs were crushing against the walls, covering them in oil and crushing the paintings, that decorated them. They were fast, and ruthless. The hallway soon came to a T shaped parting. They were in front of a choice. Left or right. There was no way back. and there was little time. The door was long consumed by the limbs, greedily.
 
Alatar
 
01:24AM
Alatar brought out his sword and started saying something in an unknown langue and a strong magic shield stopped the hands and protected the other, it would at least by some time
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:25AM
The limbs did wash against the barrier, giving them some time to escape.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:26AM
“..I..” She looked back,”He’s…” She silenced,Leaving the ideas to the other three. She was terrified,Unsure,Confused..Those feelings all mixed caused a battlefield inside of her,”…..” She looked at the two paths. “..Left.I’ll go left,–….” “In the time of the shield someone go right,If it’s the right way,Stay,Th person who went the wrong way will run back,”
 
She looked back,And inhaled deeply,She started down the way,That lead to the Left.
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:28AM
“We all go left then…. we separate it’ll just be worse.” He said. About to run before stopping and looking back at Zera. “How about you?”
 
Zera La Fae
 
01:30AM
“You sure splitting up is a good idea? There may not be time to double back!” Her eyes dart in both directions quickly, assessing both directions – left then right. She didn’t have very much in means of protection with her, having thought she was coming to view pieces of art, not be incorporated into a nightmare. “Left it is – safety in numbers and all that.”
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:30AM
“Shield fucker from the tub! Go left!” He called out to the man before booking it down the hall.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:30AM
Time indeed was of the essence. the barrier began to crack.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:31AM
She panted,Reaching the end.

01:31AM
And so they ran. The hallway was long. And seemed with no end. But a slight formation was seen in front of them. A possible escape? Hope? They had to step up!
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:32AM
She followed the formation,Feeling close.
 
Alatar
 
01:33AM
Alatar groaned and whispered one last thing that would reinforce the wall for like 2 mins. Then he was running left, soon reaching the others
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:34AM
He narrowed his eyes at said formation and peeered back. Breaking into a full sprint to hopefully catch a proper glimpse of it.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:35AM
They entered a room, with two massive steps, leading upwards in a round about way, into a visible door. A passage. Where they in a flat or an opera? At this point nothing made sense! To the left was a room for clothe hanging. Tho the right, a coffee shop. Soft melody, of violins being tuned came from above. Almost as if a concert was about to start. The carped below their feet was scarlet. A grand chandelier was lighting the white rococo room. peeking back, Randall couldn’t see the stopped danger, as they had turned around the corner.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:37AM
She looked at the stairs,Then the rooms,Uneasy.
 
Zera La Fae
 
01:40AM
Zera looked at the formation ahead of them as they approached at a quick pace. This.. was unexpected and yet not out of place. She sighed as she entered the room, thinking that she would never get used to the strangeness of Hellifyno. “Where the hell are we?” She started digging around in her bag for something as she stepped away from the door, not wanting to block the way of those behind her. After a moment of searching her hand closed around the vial she was searching for and she slipped it instead into an inner jacket pocket. Best have it easily accessible if she needed to use it.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:42AM
She looked back to the stairs,”We need to make decision…And fast..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:42AM
Once in the room he raised a brow. Looking up the stairs before listening closely to the tunes. Trying to pinpoint where this sound was reverberating from. “Music? Could that,… be the way?” He asked amongst the group.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:43AM
“Sound..That would attract us,”
 
“Espessially,Nice calming music,We need to be..Cautious.
 
“-

01:43AM
It was strange indeed how they ended up in such location, but scent of oil and perfume was lingering in the air heavily. This indeed made little sense. Surreal. Almost non existent, yet the breathed, and felt tired. Writings made sense, they couldn’t be dreaming. Just where in the world were they? Was it day even or night? How long have they been running? But indeed. The cracking sound echoed from behind them. Time was running out. What will they decide. What road they will pick? One was for sure, they couldn’t go back.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:48AM
She took a hesitant step forward,Looking from the clothes shop to the Coffee shop,”Fuck..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:49AM
“Fuck it…. I’m goin’ upstairs….” he said. And like that, he made his way up two steps at a time.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:50AM
She looked at him,Uneasiness settling in her chest. “It doesn’t see, right..”
 
Seem-\
 
Zera La Fae
 
01:50AM
“If it looks like a trap and sounds like a trap…” Again, her eyes dart in all directions – left to the dressing rooms, right to the coffee shop, up the stairs to the concert hall. “Sticking together again?” As alluring as a cup of coffee sounded right now this wasn’t the time nor the place. Up the stairs she would go.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:51AM
She watched them go upstairs,Rooted to her spot.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:51AM
Applause came from the room upstairs. A scent of delicious coffee from the right. And warmth came from the room on the left. What will it be? And so they went up, as the applause went lighter. For a moment they were blinded from just stepping in to the dim light of the concert hall. They were by the back seats.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:52AM
She bit her lip,Still unsure,She mad no step,Towards no where.
 
made-
 
Zera La Fae
 
01:54AM
She looked over her shoulder at Lunar as she ascended the the stairs. “Ya coming or not? Best to keep moving.”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:54AM
Soon they grew accustomed by the sounds. Lunar could hear a crack, and flood sounding, as the barrier had broken. They had to chose now! those who were left behind, of course! The arms, the arms were coming!
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:55AM
She shook her head,”No…..The..Stairs They..Don’t feel right.”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:55AM
The sound of arms was nearing.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
01:56AM
“Im going to one of the shops,” She looked at Zera torn,”B….Bye.”
 
She took a shaky breath,Walking into the clothes shop.
 
Zera La Fae
 
01:57AM
She sighed as she turned to quickly go back up the stairs to catch up with Randall. “Nothing is right about this place..” She frowned but didn’t question the woman’s decision to break off from the rest of them.
 
Randall Wayne
 
01:58AM
“But…. shit….” he sighed and gave a shrug to Zera as they approached the back of the concert hall. Peering over the seats to scan and survey the room. Checking if there was someone on stage.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
01:59AM
As the last decisions were made, the arms flooded within the hall, nearing all the doors. The coffee and dressing room doors closed first, blocking the arms. Greedily they approached Randall and Zera, just as they entered the hall, allowing the door to shut behind them.
 
Now then:
 
Lunar entered the dressing room, and found it rather well made, with coats hanged on the lines, belonging to different people, who might have visited the concert. They seemed very welcoming and stylish. At this point, she had the chance to look around. Zera and Randall, their eyes adjusted to the light, as they noticed – the hall was full with Zeras, Randalls, Lunars and Alatars, eyeing the two. A shout came from the back. “What are you waiting for! The crowd is waiting for you to sing!”
 
Zera La Fae
 
02:04AM
She gave Randall a sidelong glance. “Don’t happen to know any duets do you?”
 
Randall Wayne
 
02:04AM
“I…. was gonna ask you the same thing…..” he said giving the very same look. “I could…. play an instrument?” He shrugged.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:06AM
She looked behind the counter of the store,Checking the cash register.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:06AM
Two spotlights shone on Zera and Randall, Lighting them, as the stage was waiting, waiting for them to shine. Waiting for them to become stars! To be glorious! To save themselves! Hope? Maybe! YES! A hope! Beautiful precious hope! It was not a store, where Lunar was, but a dressing room, with coat hangers, for those who had to lay their coats down. Thus she had no option to check cash registers.
 
Randall Wayne
 
02:09AM
Clearing his throat he decided to Atleast but some time. Glancing around he spotted an Audio Randall and plucked a microphone. “Ladies and Gentlemen, me and the… Lovely Miss la Fae are havin’…. lyrical difficulties… we will be with you in just a moment!” That cheery smile and tone before he reverted to his stoic expression as he watched Zera.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:10AM
She looked at the jackets,And like she did as a kid,Stepping through them,Expecting some strange door or such.
 
Zera La Fae
 
02:13AM
She glared at him a bit before stepping up to the middle of the stage, whispering as she passed him. “Hope you at playing chords? Or at least by ear.” She hums a few bars softly for him to get the correct key. If it didn’t match, well, she could adjust once he joined in. She started to sing slowly, the sound ringing out clearly even without a microphone in front of her. The song was in a foreign language, something akin to French but slightly different.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:14AM
The crowd whistled! “Randall and Zera! Randall and Zera!” They cheered! The lights were bright, the couldn’t see the crowd. Soon it went quiet listening to their words. But what Zera sang wasn’t what she meant. Soon her words were diffused. rearranged. against her will. Why? Meanwhile, No door came, but the air did grow cold for Lunar. Colder and colder. And the jackets seemed heavy. Similar in color… Slowly the hanging room had turned into a passage, filled with hanged women. Presumably victims that had previously stepped there. Whispers ensued, as Lunar could hear them. They grew loud, deafening. “Alone! So delicious and soft. What can you do now? where will you hide? Come… I can safe you. I can protect you…”
 
Zera’s lips sang:
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:16AM
“…” She looked at the woman,”You poor things..You all were alone..You all had no where to hide..No one to protect you..No one to save you..You poor,poor woman..”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:16AM
“upon the altar of many, the blood of holy shall fall. Those who witness and those who hide, the final days ain’t far! I am the maiden of him and he is the lord of mine!” Soon a choking sensation over took Zera, as rustling came from the crowd. “MOther! MOTHER IS HERE!” They screamed.
 
“Yes. Poor poor Lunar! She needed someone to safe her. Someone to hide with! Embrace him! Embrace the nameless one! Pray and praise the nameless one!” The hanging women looked at Lunar with bulged eyes.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:19AM
Her ears flattened as she looked at the woman,Helplessly. “If I survive this..I’ll someday find a way to avenge you..” She whispered,”But if your trapped souls want to be free,” She said slowly,Cautiously,”I need your help.”
 
Women-
 
Randall Wayne
 
02:19AM
Randall was beginning to play those very chords but he was sure he would be overtaken and play a different tune or begin singing agaisnt his will as well but he saw The shorter woman seem to choke up. “Z-Zera?” He said in a loud whisper as to not disturb the crowd.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:20AM
“Pledge your heart to the nameless one! Drink my blood!” the others whispered. “Yes drink our blood! Save us! avenge us! This world is rotten! Save me! My family, they lost me! My child is alone!” Meanwhile silence was surrounding Randall and Zera, they had some time to recuperate.
 
Zera La Fae
 
02:21AM
Zera’s hands went to her throat. It felt like she were being strangled by something. She coughed, trying to breathe. “What…in the…fuck..”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:22AM
The crowd booed… This wasn’t good…
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:22AM
“Look..” She said,”I know..You feel hate towards me..But I can free you..If you have family grieving over you,You all can be free..Watching over them..Just please..Help me..Or Your trapped..Forever,All alone..Being tortured as you are here to hang..For ever. I need you..And you all need me.”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:23AM
“Drink my blood.” she said to Lunar. “Yes drink her pure blood! it will make you strong! yes… It will make you seeing! You shall be the savior! The chosen one! THe promise of salvation! Drink our blood, or perish with us!”
 
Randall Wayne
 
02:24AM
Oh now they were booing. That was bad. However he did move to the woman and tapped her shoulder. “H-Hey…. you… take a break… play the chords instead?”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:26AM
She took a hesitant step forward,”If this blood kills me…You lost your chance of freedom..”
 
“So..Everyone..Last chance..”
 
“Before I drink this blood..”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:26AM
Silence was Lunar’s answer. Anticipation for her to make this choice. Alone.
 
Zera La Fae
 
02:27AM
She looked up at the crowd. Were they booing because they stopped? “I’m okay. Shall we try again?” She nodded, moving over to the piano nodding to Randall that she was ready when he was.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:27AM
She inhaled deeply,And drank the blood.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:28AM
A certain revelation washed over Lunar.
 
The lights still shone on them, but the hall was almost screaming with eerie silence.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:29AM
“..” She lifted her ears uncertainly,Looking around.
 
Randall Wayne
 
02:30AM
And with a nod back he began. Just some song her recently heard. He knew the same would most likely happen to him. Though, as sick as it may sound, he was prepared for being choked as it came with his job.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:31AM
The crowd silently waited. and the dead bodies silently surrounded Lunar, seemingly lost in a slight trance. Whatever was happening, it felt like silence before storm.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:32AM
“I’ll save you,” She now whispered aloud.
 
“They can’t stop me..”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:33AM
The whispers of women begged! “Please listen… listen to your heart speaking to you! Do what is right. Do what is just!”
 
Zera La Fae
 
02:35AM
Zera played the opening chord of the song for Randall. It had been… Well, since she was a child since she sat down at a piano. As she sat at the piano with her hands on the keys, she silently prayed for the first time in ages. Dear sweet gods above, don’t let her make a fool of them both in agreeing to this.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:35AM
“..” She sighed,Looking up at the women,They had their chance,Now she can die and thy can remained tortured. She hesitantly followed the voice,
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:38AM
And the bodies bowed before Lunar, as a passage opened and light shone upon her, awaiting her to enter. Enter on the stage. Enter, where Randall and Zera was playing! And the two saw that someone was coming. And there was something behind Lunar, reaching out, as the public went crazy. “MOTHER! MOTHER IS HERE! MOTHER IS HOLY MOTHER IS RIGHT MOTHER IS HERE!”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:40AM
She looked from the two,To the thing reaching out,The,”Mother,” She bit her lip,The right choice…The right choice..The right choice..
 
Zera La Fae
 
02:43AM
Zera looked over from the piano, somewhat relieved to see that Lunar was alright. However, her fingers faltering into a moment of dissonance as they hit the wrong keys and created a cringeworthy sound. What in the ever loving fuck was that thing that had followed Lunar onto the stage?
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:43AM
“Don’t…Hurt…Them..Or..Or..” She choked on her words,Ears flat,”I-..Have to..Kill you.”
 
The words were directed to Zera and Randall.
 
Randall Wayne
 
02:45AM
He continued to sing. He too missed a few notes and cringing himself before peered over at Lunar. And just before the bridge of the song, he took his mic away to speak. “What? The gel are ya talkin’ about?”
 
Zera La Fae
 
02:46AM
At that Zera stopped playing for a mere second before continuing. “Come again?”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:46AM
Softest voice came from the massive queen piece like figure, as the doll-like face turned towards Randal and Zera. Placing her arm on Lunar’s shoulder. She sang. “They who have forgotten the ones they left! Singing like cowards after theft!” She rose her arm, and sung. “The time is nigh, i show you a song, how humans will never be able to get along!” Soon enough metallic spiders crawled from beneath her, connected by a threat, aming to attack Randall and Zera. Ensnare them.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:46AM
“Just stop..Don’t fight against me or what I have to do..Trust me..You don’t understand.”
 
“Please..Don’t hurt Zera and Randall..Unless needed.”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:48AM
“Unless needed!” The spiders ran past Lunar, towards the two! “Unless needed, yes! They will be free! And happy! The joy of sound! The threads are alive with the sound of music!”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:48AM
She closed her eyes,Taking a deep breath.
 
“Stop.
 
“They haven’t done anything against what I need to do,Stop. The. Spiders.”
 
Zera La Fae
 
02:50AM
“Theft? What theft?” Her eyes darted to Lunar, “You said not to hurt them. Them who? The spiders?” She brought her feet up onto the piano bench.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:51AM
“The women..The Mother…Everything..I’m..Saving them..The poor things..They’re trapped..In this house..I’m saving them,And if you try to get in the way of it..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
02:51AM
“Oh for Christ’s sake you weasely little-“ he cut himself off before saying a flurry obscenities to Lunar before closing the top of the piano a she climbed atop of it. As well as lift the smaller woman onto the piano as well.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:51AM
She winced,
 
“I could kill you right now,God damn it Randall,So shut up and listen!”
 
“You chose the stairs,I chose the dressing room,You weren’t fucking there,You don’t understand.”
 
“I have to HELP them,” She said again,”If anything gets in my way..I have to kill them or it.”
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
02:54AM
The spiders crawled around them placing thread like traps Eyeing the two, who were playing. The crowd was silent, watching this opera in awe. Gracious! beautiful! Betrayal. But who was betraying who? Who knew the answer? And who didn’t? Who was right? How will it end! This was exciting EXCITING INDEED! THIS! is art! THE FIRE IN THEIR HEARTS! the oil on their palms! THIS WAS THE CRY OF OIL AND FIRE! GLORIOUS! The crowed was taken over! The large mechanic being turned her hand. “Listen to her. She speaks with mind, fallen ones! Face your salvation! Become one with me! And I will have the power to release all of you from this damned place!”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:55AM
“The spiders aren’t helping..Stop it.”
 
“we can do this faster..Free you and the woman faster,If we work,In PEACE..Together..”
 
Women-
 
Randall Wayne
 
02:56AM
“No… No, no, no, no, no….” he shook his head at the mechanical spider before giving them the bird. “Fuuuuuck youuuuu.” He said before glaring at Lunar. “And I can kill ya right now! Don’t push it kid!”
 
“Those little pricks are lyin’!” The hell was he on about?
 
Lunar Slicion
 
02:58AM
“God damn it!” She cried out,Sitting down on the floor and hugging her knees to her chest,Burying her head in her legs,When she looked up tears filled her eyes,
on’t you fucking get it? I’m trying to help both of–….You killed children..”
 
..Tf did that emoji come from}
 
She looked at Randall,”You..Killed..Children..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
03:00AM
“What children!?” He asked before outta nowhere he grabbed a ukulele.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
03:01AM
“..I can’t help you now..”
 
“..’Do you know how easily these “good people” Turn backs on those in need. Zera has killed innocent people, serving for a vampire she loves. And Randall heartlessly slaughtered children, trapped in a tomb..’ The voice knows..”
 
Zera La Fae
 
03:03AM
She shook her head as she pointed at the mother and then the spiders. “That…those.. things have their own agenda. They’re manipulating you! Can’t you see that?!” Her breath catches in her throat at the mention of Ace. “Last time I checked killing a fucking cannibal that is trying to have me as dessert is not an innocent fucking person!”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
03:04AM
“..People..Not person..Zera.”
 
a person-
 
Randall Wayne
 
03:06AM
“They weren’t children you…” he played a couple strings on the instrument and Lunar would feel her legs moving on their own. Towards him. “Ignorant…” another few strings and her and Lunar would take any few steps towards him. “Traitorous…” now it was a full melody and Lunar was within his reach. She may have control with the rest of her body but her legs were his. “Little shit!” He snarled before grabbing the woman by the shirt and lifting her off the ground. “That…. thing… is feedin’ you lies! They were NOT children! They were undead ghouls shouting “mother’ and ‘father’!”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
03:08AM
She closed her eyes,And slipped through Randall’s fingers in a black mist,
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
03:08AM
The spiders stopped, in position to attack Zera and Randall, if they were about to act up. The woman twisted her head. “Murderers… You are murderers. Filthy and disgustinGg!” Three spiders leaped at Randall.
 
Randall Wayne
 
03:10AM
“Sonuvabitch!” He growled as Lunar left his grasp. However now the spiders were upon him, causing him to fallback on the piano as he trie flicking them away. Using the ukulele to keep them at bay one by one:
 
Lunar Slicion
 
03:11AM
“..”
 
“Im sorry the voice told me lies..”
 
“Im sorry you got into this..”
 
“Im sorry,”
 
She pulled the knife from her back pocket holding the blade against her chest,
 
Zera La Fae
 
03:13AM
She shakes her head, “That man in the woods was the only one I’ve killed and it was in bloody self defense! I’ve got the scar to prove it! Or is being the murderer of a murderer not worthy enough?!” She clenched her fist around something, a paintbrush in her hand. Her resolve was starting to crack. Acetyl, the vampire that used to be her mentor and had taken her under his wing, was dead. He opted to stab himself in the heart with a silver dagger than watch her fall.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
03:14AM
The spiders danced, and slowly neared Randall in turns, but the motion was slowl, as the music maniacally played with their steps. More spiders were creeping at Zera, looking to ensnare her. “Look what you did to her! Look what Lunar needs to do to show you the truth! YOU MURDERERS!”
 
Randall Wayne
 
03:17AM
Now these spiders were annoying him. But then, something snapped in that sick mind of his and this time, the ukulele didn’t make them just move their legs. No. Now the legs were bending in unnatural manner. Until finally. One by one. Each of the snapped. Including those surrounding Zera.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
03:20AM
The towering woman shouted at them, and from beneath her dress, more spiders came, crawling towards the two, as two of the mechanical beasts stood by lunar, guarding her.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
03:24AM
She slipped the knife through her chest,Although it didn’t really,But it looked like it did,”…You guys killed me..” She murmured. Falling,
 
 
Zera La Fae
 
03:25AM
Truth? What was the truth? Or lies? It was a matter of perspective. Cold blood or defense. It didn’t change the fact that she shot the pig of man in the head twice. He was dead because of her actions…because of her desire to live. She was beyond done with this foolishness – the lies and half truths, the spiders, all of it. “And what of your truths, eh? You seem pretty content to air out our dirty laundry on this grande stage.” She held her arms out wide, noting there location. “What of your lies, eh ‘Mother?’ “
 
*their
 
Randall Wayne
 
03:30AM
Hearing Zera he nodded in agreement. “Yeah, and what gives you the right to judge us!? Huh? Those damn things were suffocating and crushing people with their ‘embrace’! I did what I had to!” He wouldn’t comment on Zera’s hardships as it was not his place to say. But once he had space he began playing his uke once more. His target? The tall woman summoning the spiders.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
03:32AM
She crouched and picked Lunar up, eyeing the dead girl. “How dare you to speak such way. After you left your comrades to die. After you laugh at the sacrifice of this girls life. She was telling the truth, and you blindly chose to follow your emotions and feelings. You are dark, and dirty. For all that you see here are but reflections of your soul! Murderers! Abusers!” she wept. Her doll like face looked upon the child, as the crowd watched them. All this time they were being watched. Was this an act? Was this reality? Were they made fools? Or where they truly heartless and thick people? “You killed her. You killed my kin! How could you? HOW COULD YOU!” she shouted, as she touched Lunar’s lips. “She had so much to live for… And you DARE! YOU DARE TO LAUGH AT ME! Murderers… You are no heroes! YOU are SCUM!” She gritted her teeth in anger. Snow began to fall, touching her pale hair, as her eyes were filled with crystal tears. The trees whispered, as the lone mother was crouched with her child. The lone spiders, weaved winter webs, innocently. “Why do you hate me so much?”
 
Zera La Fae
 
03:40AM
“She chose to leave the group! To go a different direction! And who is laughing because I am not hearing any?” This is the second time in so many weeks she watched as someone plunged a knife into their own heart. She was numb to it. “Her own hand was on the dagger that plunged into her chest, Not mine, not Randall’s. Her own. So enough of the fucking mind games.”

Randall Wayne
 
03:45AM
“When we were in the hallways we chose to go with her when she said left! We expected her to do the same with us! It’s ‘er fault your fuckin’ ‘child’ is dead, not ours! Now quit the fuckin’ blamin’ of us. Because it’s YOU!” He snarled.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
03:46AM
She used her Illusion magic,Saying the spell silently in her head,Making them both believe they killed her..Finally..The way to freedom.
 
Nakhtrendsensesenaidairiaphos Furf’fonnyalwaldalsonsonmesis [Dreamscapes and FaE DM]
 
03:47AM
“My dear daughter… My beloved Lunar… Why wouldn’t you accept her? Why did you have to drive her so far. You accuse me, but what are you doing right now. Blaming a woman in mourning.” Her crystaline eyes glanced at Zera, full of remorse and regret, as the snow touched her pale cheek. “Why justify your wrong doings, while you could just accept how wrong you are? You and that man. Why… Why can’t I be loved? Why don’t you help those in need? Am I not human! Wasn’t she a living being? And what did you do? Called her names!” She wept at Randall’s words, as the wind blew gently against her cheeks. Lunar was still dead.

Randall was once more about berate her but…. he stopped. Instead he looked to Zera for a brief moment and tapped her back. Signaling to follow his actions. “Ya know…. you know what? Y-Your right…. it is our fault… all of it.” He said a hand reaching to the back of his belt. Undoing a vial to rub something on his fingers and rub just under his eyes. “W-We… killed ‘er…” he said and… were those tears? Whatever he put on his eyes caused them to water.

03:57AM
The illusory magic tugged at the back of Zera’s mind. Maybe it was her fault? She looked to Randall and followed his lead. So much of this was de ja vu from weeks earlier – the knife to the heart, the tug of regret of not being able to stop it. She was no stranger to tears – the had become well acquainted recently. “She…she slipped a key underneath the door when I was trapped. I never got to thank her properly or even introduce myself to her. I should have stopped her from going off on her own..should’ve dragged her with us….it’s all my fault.” Tears began to stream down her face. Was she acting or was it the silent spell? It was hard to tell.

04:00AM
The woman slid her hand trough Lunar’s hair. “She did nothing wrong. She only wanted to help. She only wished for you to be free. As you were living under this ugly illusion, you yourselves had built. Now look. She is dead! Why, by the gods! Why has the wold bestowed such a fate upon me!” The snow wept, as her frail body looked upon the skies. “If only I could have take her place! But the walls you have built, and the decisions you had made! I was unable to reach you! Oh, How horrid! Forgive me Lunar… MY beloved Lunar… My sweet, kind Lunar…” The breeze touched Zera and Randall, as snow was collecting in their air. Lunar’s blood was seeping in woman’s pale dress and snow. Making it crimson.

“Okay…” he leaned over to whisper into Zera’s ear. “I’m about might keen on just… stabbin’ ‘Er….” he leaned away. “She was s-s-s-such a precious soul!” Sniffle sniffle. Then back to the woman next to him. “Any ideas?”

She remained,Laying limp in the womans arms,

04:11AM
She whispered to the man beside her. “Starting to get an idea..” She gripped the paintbrush that was in her hand, squeezing it tightly. “..but I”m going to need time.” She turned her attention to mother. “Is that truly what you want? You would give up your life in exchange for her’s?”

04:12AM
She smiled blissfully and looked upon Zera, with a ice like stare. “anything for my kind little Lunar~ Anything for her!”

04:15AM
He continued to weep as he nodded. “Let me know if you need me to do somethin’.” One last whisper before lowering to sit. “Please! Anythin’ f-f-for this mother to bring back ‘er daughter!”

04:26AM
She nodded. “Right.” She pulled out a small jar from her bag that contained powdered pigment. Unscrewing the lid, she added some of the melting snow from the stage around them. She was unsure about this, or even if it would work. On a blank part of the stage, free from the frozen slush, she takes the brush and starts to draw the likeness of Lunar. Talking as she painted using the brush that seemed to come to her from this place, “Losing love is never easy. I..I am sorry, truly. I wish I could have done more, or done things differently. I wish there was more time.” Her statements, were heartfelt. These feelings were not new to the woman. The painting on the floor of Lunar was smaller than the original, but everything was copied over in great detail. An expression of joy on the girl’s face.

04:29AM
The snow woman looked at the copy. And shook her head. “This is not my Lunar! This is not her. Why, oh why do you break my heart as so… After all that you have done.” She lied Lunar in the snow, and walked towards them, hiding something within her sleeve. “If you dare to mock me so! I shall avenge my daughter rightfully! Your mockery and your devious acts wii be punished!” She SLASHED against Randall, with a cold blade, awkwardly, but surely to hit, if something wasn’t to be done!

“Je vous demande pardon- GAH!” And hit it did. Across the right side of his chest. Mostly sifted by his padded jacket but blood was drawn by the minor injury and caused him to fall back. “Okay! Okay! We… can… give ‘er back, *bring* ‘er back…. but…. I-I wanna know….” he slowly sat up, holding the place she hit. “…. are you willing to give your own life? For her?”
 
Zera La Fae
 
04:42AM
“Everyone’s a critic..” The replica of Lunar was completed, the magic bestowed on the brush bringing the smaller version of Lunar into existence. “Hmm, not bad for a rushed job if I say so myself..” Without hesitation, she turned to a new spot on the floor, hurriedly drew a longsword and grabbed it as soon as it materialized. A short laugh escapes the woman. “Brings new meaning to drawing one’s weapon.” She was on her feet in an instant moving, darting towards the woman to try block the slash of her blade with a parry of her own but was too slow. “ENOUGH! There has been enough blood shed and any act of retribution won’t bring her back!”

04:44AM
“Stop! Mocking me!” She cried and slashed against the man, “You killed my Lunar! You drove her to this! And now you think that this is some sort of…” And then, she slipped, she slipped, and fell on Randall, her limp body fell on the wooden floor, as her own dagger had pierced her throat. She looked different. Less beautiful. But still, gracious. The red blood was human. Hundreds of eyes looked at them in expectation. Waiting to see if there will be the next point of this act.

04:48AM
She awoke,Raising from the snow. She looked at the fallen woman and it felt ad if the knife had actually pierced her heart,Anger and Remorse overtook her. “It was a play..A show..In acts you don’t kill the actors..!” She managed to breath her words at the two,Her eyes frozen on the woman. “She was mislead,The evil in this house took her..She could have restored who she truly was…Why?” She stood,Gesturing at the two. “Why.. You just killed her because you didn’t understand her? Why?”

04:50AM
A grunt was emitted as the woman fell on him. Her blood pooling onto his clothing until he rolled her off. “Crazy…. bitch….” he muttered. That white henkeybhe wore under his jacket? Now stained. He leaned down to check her pulse. Yup. Like a nail. But now Lunar was back. And Randall couldn’t hide his emotions. Marching over he grabbed her by the shirt. “You fuckin’ think we wanted this!? She stabbed me! And you should’ve said somethin’ damnit! It’s not like I killed ‘er myself!”

04:53AM
The people stood up and murmured, “This was a bad ending.” “I looked up for the woman to be saved.” “Who makes a copy of a dead child in front of grieving mother, seriously?” “And that man. He just stood there. Lamest. Hero. Ever.” the people dispersed, as the lifeless body lied on the ground. A cold breeze of autumn came from the door. A smell, they had long forgotten. The smell of Consequence in autumn. Her lifeless body was lying on the stage. A freak accident? To some it was murder. To some it was just a play. At this point, one thing was sure. This was real. The spilled blood was indeed real. The ukulele, the brush, and Lunar’s tears. They were real. The dreamscape faded slowly, as the stage, cleaners were coming. If they notice the dead woman, they will be in great trouble from the authorities.

04:54AM
Deja vu…all over again. The redhead just sighed, not knowing what to think anymore. “What the fuck..?” She groaned, looking at the woman lying on the stage. “I shoulda stayed in bed today..”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
04:54AM
She slipped through his fingers and appeared behind him,”If I didn’t fake it would be dead..” She stated,”We wouldn’t be free.Don’t you understand! I had to force myself to remain limp! To not say a word! You have a stone-cold heart..You don’t think. Things you don’t get you believe is a threat.” She glared at him,”You act like I didn’t hear your ‘Stabbing,’ idea. If she hadn’t slipped. You would have killed her.”
 
we would-

04:56AM
“Ah shit…” he heard footsteps drawing close and lifted up the corpse slowly. “Are we done ‘ere? Let’s take ‘er to an alley, identify ‘er, and go back to Marvin’s car for the pay.” He said before shaking his head. “I would only do it if I had to….”

04:56AM
Their words echoed in the halls, as steps were heard in the distance. “Let’s check up on the actors, shall we?” a young man was talking in backstage. “I bet they are very sad about their little slip up, Maybe miss Marie slipped? Let’s see if she is alright!”
 
The car was still there. It was locked.
 
But oddly enough, they did walk out from an actual opera, and had to walk two blocks towards the car and the flat.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
04:59AM
She remained silent,Letting the silent anger and grief tear her apart,She knelt down,Touching the woman’s cheek softly,And as she stood to follow the others to the car,Murmured,”I’ll never forget you..I’ll visit you soon..”
 
Zera La Fae
 
05:00AM
The woman’s name was Marie, apparently. She sighed, following after Randall and Lunar. This was not what she had signed up for when she agreed to checkout some art. Mental note – never use that damned brush again. Or accept invitations to come to Consequence again.
 
Randall Wayne
 
05:03AM
Swiftly he made his way out. “Marie….” he said. Once in an alley he patted her down for an ID. Then looking up at Lunar. “What… do you want to do with ‘er?” He asked. Before looking back at Zera. “Hey uh…. if you want… there’s pay. The detective with us was payin’ Us but…. we’ll, ya saw what happened….”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
05:06AM
“What do I want to do with her…” She thought,”I–..” She looked down,”I dunno..We can’t carry her all the way someplace,And we can’t leave her here..”

05:07AM
And so, the man, the false murderer. Randall, who gained the ukulele, of endless dances, did lose his genuinity in the eyes of others. And still, he persisted. whatever the troubles went his way. Perhaps he ideed was a brave hero, or just a fool, who was simply lucky enough to survive. Whatever the outcome. He gained the money, and shared with people, being the kind hearth man, he was. Even if it was backfiring at cases. Losing her trust in strangers even more, and not willing to event use the acquired brush of living images, Zera was left with more question than answers. What did she just experience? Perhaps she will never seek to learn. Anything connected to this, was bad news. Whatever she will decide in the future, will be lightly impacted by this story. Lunar, gained the kinsmanship of the nameless one, gaining certain advantages and curses. But what it was worth, her perspective changed that day. Randall was a blind villain, and Zera, was nothing more but a tool. (And with this I must end. Feel free to continue this RP, and I thank you all for playing! You were marvelous and beautiful! Feel free to write blogs of your own perspectives! It will only add! OOC for after part!)

She sighed, not expecting to get paid. She shook her head. “No..I..I can’t. Taking money after all of this seems wrong. I could use a drink though.”
 
(You are a twisted, confusing little man, Kumquat! Brava.)
 
Lunar Slicion
 
05:12AM
{Lunar.. Changed, Ah}
 
Randall Wayne
 
05:14AM
“Well…. use that money to buy that drink.” He said with shrug, however if she won’t take the cut he knew a person who’d like the pay. He looked back at Lunar. “I…. I can help bury ‘er…. there’s some Leland not too far…” he nodded before looking back at Zera, tossing her a portal coin. “I might just join ya… but I’ll help ‘er for the moment.” A small friendly smile before he lifted the body once more.
 
(And YOU my friend are a twisted master mind, thank you for having us as always!
 
Lunar Slicion
 
05:16AM
“We can bury her..But..It was all..Real but not..It was all a act..That woman..Was–..Maria..She was an Actor we saw as the other Woman..’Mother,’..I–..Don’t know if burying Maria is our place..”

05:19AM
The redhead caught the portal coin and let out a slow sigh. “Its better than leaving her in a gutter somewhere. None of us meant for this to happen, and yet it did.”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
05:20AM
“True..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
05:21AM
“Well, why don’t we call authorities, huh? I left no post Mortem dna with my gloves…. let them take care of her.” He shrugged.
 
Lunar Slicion
 
05:22AM
“..Yeah..Ok..”
 
Randall Wayne
 
05:23AM
And so with a simple call from a public pay phone, he tipped authorities and took his extra portal coin. “Alright… now can we get the flick outta ‘ere?”
 
Lunar Slicion
 
05:24AM
She gave a smile nod,”Oh and…Randall? Sorry for being that way earlier..I-..Was shaken..I wasn’t myself..”
