This is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends, not with a small quiet sigh, but with a bang and crash.
The first fleets arrived on earth by accident, a millennia ago, assimilating into society in order to best determine whether or not the planet's resources could be allocated to help their species. At first, they fell in love with the simple minded humans who knew nothing of the advanced technology or cures for simple illnesses. They were not to interfere, simply to observe, but the longer they observed, the less they loved. Their attitudes came close to hatred and soon, they determined that the humans were no longer a sentient species but beings set out to destroy both themselves and their planet.

Their mission was clear; erase humanity.

Begin anew.

The stars shone so brightly, they twinkled the same way they had her entire life. It was her fifth birthday when she asked her parents to have a camp out in the yard with her friends. Her parents were happy to oblige and so that night, they had set up a tent, they dug a hole for a fire and roasted hot dogs and smores. They told stories around the camp fire, spinning tails of lizard men and creatures that lurked in the woods just beyond the fence. The children went to sleep contentedly in their sleeping bags, unaware of what lay just beyond those wooden posts. It was around midnight when the creaking began, the stalks torn up, one by one, creatures snaking through the long grass, their humanoid forms shiny and far too beautiful to ever truly be human. They plucked the children from their beds, silencing their screams, sending them into a deep sleep.

Alerted by their screams, the parents ran out, only to find the campsite trampled, ransacked, the children gone. For years they searched, prayed, hoped, but alas, they had never returned.

How did the children disappear? There was evidence of what appeared to be a large meat eating creature, but their bodies were never found. Not a speck of clothing nor a piece of hair was ever recovered from the scene of the incident. The pieces didn't add up, but with no trails to go on, the police declared them dead and closed the case. This was especially strange when ten years later, there was evidence that they had been spotted in various places across the world. Emissaries, their time had come at last to awaken and begin the end.

One by one, the children received their message and pulled through in their final task, the world spiraling into chaos as fleets from the sky began to attack. Even with the might of the entire Earth's military, they were no match for the technology the extra terrestrials brought with them. One by one, the nations collapsed, chaos ensuing as radioactive detonators began to mutate the survivors. The aliens began to colonize the planet, rounding up what little humans remained to use them as slaves in order to rehabilitate the remaining land.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, one path leading to freedom, the other to an eternity of slavery. Humans had grown used to the cacophonous self reliance of internet orders and disassociation in their day to day lives. Humans are not used to work, they are not used to getting their hands dirty or laying in a dirt field to dig for whatever scraps of food might remain. They grew content and lazy, they allowed machines to work for them, they thought too much of celebrities and little of the earth that was wasting away at their own behest. It had led to their downfall, the terrain now becoming dangerous to traverse. In order to thrive, they will need to adapt, to learn to survive like their ancestors before them and rely on themselves in a place where every creature is out to get them.
Only the strong will survive.

It was fun to eat with everyone, and Pariya hoped that they could all eat together again. "We're safe! And Jake is popular, I knew you would be!" Did that meant he pinkette was interested in the rugged cool Jake? No, it didn't seem she was capable of liking anyone in that special intimate way. She was a bit too juvenile, too simple yet complicated, for something like that for now. "I know we just met." Romo seemed a bit awkward as he ate his food, already looking forward to leaving. "But it feels safe with the five of us." Veronica seemed to agree, tail wagging as she nuzzled beside Kiyo's chair. They decided on a name - the Wanderers. Hopefully though they wouldn't have to wander for long.

"Oh, by the way." Romo said as he finally finished off his food. Riya was still absentmindedly playing with hers though, fork flying the peas around as if it were a plane and the peas passengers despite passengers not supposed to be stabbed by the plane. "Ronnie told me something interesting earlier." He smiled a bit, the green dog wiggled her ears, finding the nickname acceptable. "That other pink girl, L? Elinor? Ronnie overheard her talking to Stella I think it was... something about how she didn't want to stay, she still wanted to explore more of the world." Was Romo saying what Pariya thought he was saying? The pinkette seemed excited at that idea and she was almost jumping up and down for permission to speak.

Romo shrugged helplessly. "Yes, you can speak, sillyhead." He told her and she gulped her food hastily, almost choking on it. "Then let's invite her to be a Wanderer with us!" She asked, excited and cheery. Her heart was pumping at the idea of having more friends, her eyes began to glow, a sign of strong emotion in the girl. And then her eyes flickered out, the surge of happiness fading. "Um, if you two are both okay with it too. Because we have to make decisions as a team!" That's right, they would only invite L if Jake and Kiyo wanted to too.

❝I am a hell in high heels. ❞

They sure were energetic all things considering. Kyo smiled as Jake fed her some of the food those women had given him, her gaze soft. "I haven't seen Kyo smile this much in ages," Jake said, beaming at Romo and Riya, glad that they had made the decision to induct them into their team. At least, from his perspective, that was how it went. "Stop it," she would have nudged him, her cheeks turning vibrant pink. "I made a promise to Pariya that I'd smile more, okay?" Was it embarrassing? Perhaps a smidgen, but Kiyoko could live with it. Jake ran a hand through his hair, "It's my natural charm that draws the ladies towards me," he shook his head tragically. "But there's only one girl I love and my heart is set on her." Kyo rolled her eyes, having heard the stories dozens of times. "Don't read too much into his words, it's not me if that's what you're thinking."

No, their dynamic was more big brother and younger sister. Kyo closed her eyes as Jake fed her a bite of bread, feeling like a child. She wished she could sit up with them all and eat on her own, but Kyo wasn't going to fight and do something that might prolong their stay in this strange place. Sure, it was cute to have a colony that was a haven for females who had been abused by males, but Kiyoko didn't think it was the right place for her. Plus, Jake and Romo continued to attract attention to themselves and although Jake might pretend otherwise, the cat girl knew it was very much unwanted. Her attention turned to Romo and Riya once more, who seemed to be sharing a train of thought. Kyo listened to their proposal as she chewed on a piece of meat.

"I think it doesn't do us any harm to add one more, what do you think Jake?" But Jake's joking manner had all but melted away. "I don't know," Jake spoke softly. "Something is off about her," he admitted, pulling off a piece of bread and popping it into his mouth. "I'm not sure I trust her, plus, five's a crowd. It's dangerous enough traveling with four." Kiki would have shaken her head if she could have. "But... what if she has a useful mutation?" The cat girl pointed out. [color=#577A3A]"What if she's strong and can help us? Who knows what skills she might have? Plus, our tent can sleep up to six, so there's room for one more. She helped us out in a tight spot, we can at least return the favor."[/color Jake sighed, knowing that he was beat.

There was another reason why Romo was so anxious on leaving the Red Tent behind and it wasn't because he was excited to find the human shelter wherever the undertide lighthouse might be hiding, but rather for another reason. Could Pariya sense it too, how the girls eyes were on the both of them? Even the ones that were flirting with Jake were warily watching them. Pariya and Romo were well known members of the Survivalists, and that reputation was likely to cause them more trouble in the future. Even now, Veronica was ready and tense despite laying down and all Pariya had to do was hurt herself in order to activate her Trigger. They were a safety risk, but more than that, they had killed precious Red Tent members before with their own two hands. It was good Jake was committed only to loving a single someone, even if that someone was not Kiyo.

The team seemed to agree that it would be a good idea to get L to join with them. Pariya smiled, seemingly oblivious to the watching eyes around them as she nuzzled Kiyo's own cheek, finding it cute how Jake was feeding her. "I really like your smile. It makes me smile awhile!" Romo's mouth was agape. "Could it be? She's learning different words to rhyme with?" Riya blushed, a tiny bit upset. "Excuse me, but I'm the better poet than you!" She stuck her nose up, insulted at Romo's constant bullying of her poetry skills.

She decided to walk off, feeling mildly annoyed now, trying to find that pink head of hair int he crowd. Finally, there she was! L was there, talking to another girl as they were eating. Pariya waded her way over, trying to ignore the staring eyes all around her. She wasn't an idiot she was able to sense all of that too even if she didn't show it. "L, do you want to eat with us?" Pariya asked, taking her hand. "You helped save us, so maybe we can thank you somehow with good jokes or poems?" Making a new friend was hard in this world but hopefully Riya's natural bubble was enough to make it work this time.

"You're so silly," Kyo said to Riya, who was making her a poem. "Look at that, you're a poet and I bet you didn't even know it." Jake glanced between the two girls, glad to see that they were getting along. He hadn't expected them to like each other very much, in fact, Jake had been worried that the two girl's would clash horribly, but Kyo seemed understanding of Pariya's condition and was extra gentle with her. "What are you staring at?" Kyo asked the boys, wondering why they were looking at her like that. Her tail continued to attempt to swish, sending shocks of pain up Kyo's spine. She wished she could grab onto it and make it stop, but alas, Kyo could not. Thankfully it wasn't anything as debilitating or severe as say, a broken leg or lacerated internal organ, but it was still rather awkward.

Romo and Pariya quickly evolved into a spat against who was the better poet, but it seemed that it was quickly resolved when Pariya rose, walking off on her own. "I'll keep watch," Jake offered, putting the spoon down. He wouldn't follow her of course, just watch out for that sticky pink hair that was rather distinct in a sea of almost normal hair shades. "I just hope that she doesn't get herself into trouble." The last thing they needed was to draw unwanted attention to themselves in a colony in which they were guests, especially while in such a vulnerable position. Pariya wasn't stupid, she probably wasn't purposefully going to stir up trouble, but she was absentminded and that in itself was worrisome.

Eleven was eating on her own for the most part when she was approached by a short pink haired girl. Oh, this was the one from before, Pariya, the ex-survivalist. Eleven tilted her head to the side in question, wondering if she should accept the offer. "Alright," this would be an opportunity to glean information from the outside and gain intellect on the other humans. It seemed, for the most part, that the males were the dominant ones and that was why the females formed a colony of their own in which to protect themselves. Eleven followed Pariya back over to her friends, "I'm not very good with jokes," she admitted, "I've only ever been the basis of them." That's right, as the youngest of twenty one siblings (although not all were currently living), Eleven was often on the receiving end. Her siblings made fun of everything from her horns to the red rings around her's and Thirteen's eyes.

"Welcome," Kyo gave L what she hoped was a welcoming expression. Jake picked it up from there, "L, right?" He inquired, the other pink haired girl nodding. "Yes, that is my er-nickname." She sat down in their circle, her bowl in her lap.

Xeni was always bad at friends. But a good way to make a new friend was by trying to talk about a common thing, that's what Remi always said, right? And, well, Remi was super cool and amazing so of course everyone would know about her, even this short boy with the big dog would have to know about her! So Xeni decided to ask the boy, maybe he had some clues? "Hello, do you know where Remi is?" They were on the outskirts of town, the highway crossing before leaving city Vaniville Town's borders, one of the big cities of the area. "Um, who? I don't know a Remi?" The boy looked at the pinkette in curiosity. The dog came over to sniff her, as if not perceiving a threat. "Everyone knows Remi! My sister is so cool!"

"Well, who are you?" He asked, still guarded. "Veronica, stay back, she might be dangerous." Was she dangerous? Xeni didn't think she was a dangerous sort. She was probably quite a bit nicer than the aliens, at least! "I'm Xeni! Remi is my sister! She's super cool!" While the boy seemed wary of her, the dog was happily allowing herself to be pet, apparently named Veronica. The dog looked intently at the boy until he sighed, walking over despite the ruined cars around them. "Well, I'm Romo. It's a fake name, but I wanted to get away from my past." Pain flashed in his eyes but Xeni would not pry. "I want to have a cool fake name too! Hmm, hmm." Xeni looked around. She looked around at two cars. "Pair? Pa..." She glanced at a corpse. "Reek! Re..." Then she finally settled her eyes on Romo's mouth. "Yack! Ya! Pariya!" There, she had decided on a new name!

Romo rolled his eyes. "You really are stupidly naive and friendly, aren't you, Pariya?"


Maybe she was stupidly naive and friendly, but it was a part of what made her unique, that was what Remi had always told her. "Yay! Let's go hang out together then, L!" More than that, she was aware that her strange disposition made it easier to befriend nicer people as they were more likely to see her as more harmless than the normal threat, while bad guys would be more willing to take advantage of how she was. Was it a survival technique? Probably? "That's okay, most of my jokes are about me. For example, um." She put a spoon on her hair and it stuck. "I am a cyborg, I am half robot!" She did the arms part of the robot dance to hopefully entertain L a bit before taking her to the table where the rest of them sat.

Kyo and Jake were willing to accept her as at the very least a friend too. Now they had two pink haired girls! "Hullo again." Romo sighed, standing up. "Stop putting thngs in your hair, last time we had to cut off a bunch of it and you started to cry because it wasn't cute anymore." Due to Pariya's nonsense Romo learned how to be an expert barber of her odd sticky hair. "But I wanted to make a good joke!" Jokes were the best ice breakers, weren't they? "Sorry about her, if you hang out with us you'll have to deal with her bad jokes all the time." Romo had a self pitying grin as he welcomed L over.

❝I am a hell in high heels. ❞

"Alright," Eleven followed the slightly strange, pink haired girl back to her group of friends who seemed to welcome her with open arms. Luckily, the humans did not recognize her. Perhaps it was because of the swelling, or maybe they simply hadn't gotten a good glimpse of her face the night they had escaped. Either way, it was a relief and Eleven managed to relax ever so slightly, shoulders slumping just a small amount, seemingly no longer guarded. Of course, this was just for show, with so many humans around, she had to have her guard up, least she wanted to be found out and booted from this place, or worse. It seemed that the humans didn't mind the barbaric practice of execution, there was a lot about them that Eleven was still learning.

Romo apologized that Eleven would have to put up with supposed weirdness, but she shook her head, smiling. "It isn't strange," she promised, hoping her inflection sounded a bit more human. It seemed that they were impartial towards compounded words. It was a good thing her tutors had taught her this very unique language, otherwise Eleven would have no doubt stood out even more than she already did. What with her soft, pastel hair, red horns, and rimmed eyes. If not for the mutations of the people of earth, she would have more than likely stood out even more than she already did. It seemed that the vast majority did not undergo any physical mutation, at least not any visible kind.

"I didn't know you were a cyborg," Kyo quirked a brow, wondering how this came to be. "I think she's kidding," Jake pointed out. Kyo blinked, the joke had passed over her head completely. "We don't mind your jokes either, right Kyo?" Jake asked, grinning. He pat Pariya's sticky pink hair, then subtly wiped his hand on his pants in order to get the residue off. What made it so sticky? the world might never know. "I like your jokes, they keep things interesting." Kyo said, hoping to make Pariya feel good despite the fact that it seemed like Romo was always trying to discourage her from doing the things she most wanted to. "Don't let any bullies get you down Pariya, you're perfect the way you are."

It seemed that Eleven had at last found a group of decent humans. "This might be abrupt considering we have only just met," she started, setting her bowl aside. "But would you perhaps allow me to travel with your group?"

Yay, they were getting along! Pariya always liked it when people got along, it was much better than a situation where people had to fight. She was aware of the eyes all on them, watching carefully to make sure they didn't cause trouble, especially after considering she had almost killed another Red Tent girl just the night before when their forces clashed. Romo was always making fun of her though, not that she minded. Pariya liked doing certain things and no doubt he liked making fun of her, so it was a fair trade, right? Whenever it mattered he was always the first to protect her though and that was most important of all. "Good." Romo said as L seemed not to mind Pariya's strangeness. "It's usually only good people that don't mind her." Veronica seemed to like her too, so that was two plusses.

Despite Romo's teasing, Kiyo was always happy with her jokes and poems. "And you're almost perfect! Well, you're getting there!" She allowed herself to be pat by Jake, enjoying it despite the strange residue constantly in her hair. It was her second least most debilitating mutation to be fair, the worst of which was likely the delusion Trigger itself as she never had seizures before this happened, the aliens coming to ruin everything. "If you smiled more I'm sure more boys would be charmed!" She grinned evilly at Romo who looked at her in surprise. "Though I bet Romo's already charmed! He always liked animals after all, especially green ones." Was it a coincidence Veronica and Kiyo were both animal and green? "Where did you even get that from?" Romo asked, incredulous.

At the offer to join, Pariya was excited. "Yes, I think that's good! Come with us, you'll be a new friend!" Romo looked around at Jake and Kiki first but then shrugged. "Well, just one thing you'll need to know first. Riya here gets seizures sometimes, so when it happens it'd be nice if you could help protect her when Jake and I try to stabilize her." He explained, as they were most vulnerable when she became like that. "It only happened after the aliens came!" The goo-haired pinkette exclaimed. "Maybe if I meet the Alien leader they can fix it?" Romo gave her a dubious look. "No, Riya, that's probably the worst idea you've ever had." She shrugged helplessly, shaking her head. "It's mean to judge people before meeting them, maybe the alien leader's just misunderstood?"

"Almost perfect?" Kyo quirked a brow once more, wondering what her fatal flaw was in Pariya's eyes. What sort of half baked compliment was that? Not that Kyo would say anything of course, because she didn't think that Pariya knew that her statement was a bit... odd. Kyo closed her eyes, feeling tired from all of the medicine. She had to pee too, but somehow, she didn't think that the Doctor was going to allow her to get up and use the toilet. More than likely they would have a nurse assist her somehow. Romo seemed to think that only good people didn't mind Kyo, which seemed odd to the cat girl because wasn't Pariya a former survivalist? Certainly there were bad people that would humor her as well?

Kyo blushed when Pariya mentioned her lack of smiling. Not everyone could be dubiously cheerful all the time. Kyo had to be realistic. "I told you I would try," she mumbled, looking away awkwardly. Jake laughed, petting her head gently around the bandages. She closed her eyes, savoring the feeling. "It seems that Pariya is a real matchmaker, she knows what the men want and they want smiles." Jake winked as Kyo's cheeks turned even redder. Then she went on to speak of Romo, who had an affinity for animals with green fur. Now Kyo's cheeks were as vibrant as a fire truck. "Okay, okay, enough with the teasing. We're not supposed to rile her up, remember?" Jake chided gently, they couldn't raise Kyo's blood pressure too much until tomorrow, then Pariya could tease all she wanted. Romo too, seemed embarrassed by the outlandish statement.

Eleven glanced from one human to the next, their statements were so casual, they so easily spoke of one another without any formalities or restrictions. Eleven made a mental note of this, hoping that one day she too, would be able to speak with Thirteen in the same casual inflection. Their friend, Pariya, suffered from seizures, a terrible infliction. "I'm sorry, I don't know much about them, but I will do my best to assist." Eleven said, balling her hands into fists. It should be an easy enough thing to learn, shouldn't it? Jake smiled, seeming glad that Eleven was determined. "Elinor, was it?" Eleven nodded, having quickly forgotten the human name she had given herself. "However, most of my friends refer to me as L." It would be too obvious that she was outlandish if they heard that her true name was a set of numbers.

Pariya proclaimed that if she met the alien queen, then maybe she could fix the seizures. "No," Kyo said quickly, "she'd make them worse." Eleven held her tongue, curious on what the humans thought of her Mother. "She's a piece of work," Jake said, crossing his arms. It was clear that there was still underlying trauma from their capture. "Once she found out we had mutations, she rounded all of the humans in the camp up. She did these-"

"Jake, stop." Kyo said suddenly. His gaze softened, she was shaking, her breathing having quickened. Eleven glanced between the two, the trauma had brought them close together, no doubt the same way that being in the survivalist camp together had connected Romo and Pariya.

Thirteen strode into the throne room of their temporary home, a castle in what the humans once called London, England. Buckingham Palace, Thirteen believed it was called, although it wasn't much compared to his true home. Thirteen threw the doors open, striding down the red carpet and kneeling at the steps, one fist pressed into the ground, is head bowed. "Rise, Thirteen, my son." Queen Freya had a delicate smile on her lips, her features illuminated by the light that trickled in from the overhead windows. "To what do I owe the pleasure?" She knew of the human escapees from their little project of course, her traitorous daughter, Eleven had set them free. "Eleven has left," Thirteen reported, "I was unable to stop her, however she has promised that she will bring the humans back."

Queen Freya shook her head, ebony hair seeming to float on its own in a halo around her head. "Thirteen, when has Eleven ever held true to her promises?" She chided softly, knowing that Thirteen held his little sister in high regard. "More than likely she has run away once more, I suppose it is my fault for not properly disciplining her." Thirteen stiffened, the first time Eleven had run away, she had taken one of their orbiters and declared that she was venturing off for scientific purposes. In truth, she had abandoned her duties as crown princess, invoking the wrath of not only the King and Queen, but their dozens of other siblings who had been waiting in line patiently until they had shown up. "Thirteen, your sister has disappointed me once again." Queen Freya stood, seemingly floating as she walked down the steps to his side.

"Do you know why I gave you numbers instead of names?" She asked, flashing a smile that did not quite reach her eyes. "No," Thirteen confessed, "I do not," Queen Freya touched his cheek, her skim impossibly soft. "Because you are disposable, if I had given you names, I would have grown too attached." Yes, her children were bred to be pawns, even the King had known, of course. They needed strong genetics in order to produce superior offspring, Thirteen and Eleven were a result of that. Twelve, unfortunately, did not survive the neonatal phases and perished before birth. Out of thirteen attempts, the two strongest had been born. Thus, Embryo labels Eleven and Thirteen had been born. "Do you understand this, Thirteen?" Queen Freya asked, dress swirling around her as she turned to move out of of the throne room.

"Yes, my Queen." He strode after her, walking briskly to keep pace. "What actions should I take against Eleven?" Queen Freya smiled, but there was nothing kind about it. "Go and retrieve the humans and your sister, I shall discipline her for her betrayal." Thirteen nodded, once more, kneeling to the ground with his fist against the floor. "I will do as you say, my Queen." Queen Freya turned, touching his shoulder with an elegant hand. "Do not be another burden to me, Thirteen, restore honor to our family name." He nodded and rose, walking off in order to make preparations. Queen Freya turned, heading to the drawing room, where her ladies in waiting were gathered, a pink haze filling the space full of delicate pillows and elegant furniture.

"My Queen! You look as ravishing as ever!"

"My Queen, please, come sit on this pillow we've been keeping cool for your pleasure!"

"No my Queen, come sit on this one we've been keeping warm!"

"Would you like tea, My Queen?"

Freya sat down on the cold pillow, a lady in waiting running forth to prop her legs up. "Bring me tea and one of those humans."

"Yes my Queen!" They chimed, all kneeling with their fists against the floor. They scrambled over themselves, wishing to please their sovereign. They came in with tea and a girl in chains, her legs wrapped in bandages, her long blue hair touching the floor. She was shaking something awful, no doubt fearing for her life. "Do you value your freedom child?" Queen Freya inquired, sipping on her tea. She nodded her head vigorously, her lower lip trembling. "Then dance," she rose, crying out in pain and nearly collapsing. "I-I can't," the child whimpered.

"Then you are of no use to me, guards-"

"Wait! No, no! I can, I c-c-can dance," she got onto her feet, one of the lady's in waiting starting up music. They gathered around the Queen, grinning cruelly as the human with damaged legs began to dance for their entertainment.

At the mention of the leader of the aliens helping them out, pretty much everyone froze up. Pariya frowned, was this her fault? This reminded her of the old days back when she was in school. Once she saw a girl with a big funny brown lump on the side of her head and so she asked very loudly '"What the heck is that?"' but it turned out to be a birthmark, a really big ugly one and the girl began to cry and all of her friends hurdled around her protectively and stared at poor Xeni who didn't know any better. "See, so how about we don't go try to find her." Romo told Pariya gently and the pinkette nodded. "Um.." She looked nervously at Kiyo and at Jake. "I'm sorry for bringing up bad memories."

Once eating was done there wasn't too much to do as they waited for tomorrow, for Kiki to be discharged and allowed to go. "Let's go train." Romo told Pariya, nudging her. They needed their practice just in case they had to fight again to protect their friends. Sure, Jake's bulletproof skin was good and Kiki was pretty damn good with that bow but even so, the ones with experience with murder, Jake, Veronica, and Pariya, it was up to them to protecting their friends until all their enemies were destroyed. "Is there a place to train?" She asked L but that was when Lacey came up with a gun, holding it to them. "Yes, there is. I'll take you to the training ground in the woods, but we'll have it guarded so you can't cause trouble." It was obvious that they weren't trusted. "That's okay, we just need to hone our abilities to better protect ourselves." Romo stuck his hands up, Riya doing the same to show non-aggression.

They were lead to an area with training dummies and targets in a large flat area surrounded by a wooden palisade that circled around the place, with a single gate in and out, guarded by Red Tent members on duty. "The only way out is through the gate, so don't get any ideas." Lacey growled. Pariya nodded, having no intention on causing trouble. That was how Romo and Pariya were given almost free range to practice, Romo improving on giving commands to Veronica in the middle of battle while Pariya watched, clapping. The two were like a single mind when they fought, the dog and human were really quite incredible.

After an hour of that it was Pariya's turn. "Okay, do it. We'll be here, so it'll be okay." Pariya nodded. The key was to train her ability to maintain control while in Delusion Trigger mode. If they could find a way to keep her mind stable while activating the trigger then she'd truly be a powerful foe. She turned on her Holospear and did a little cut on her finger to pull the trigger, the world spinning and no longer making sense. A voice was screaming at her and she was trying to focus on it, trying to remember to focus on it but as the chaos raged around her a part of her just wanted to get lost in it and float aimlessly in the sea of noise and colors.

Pariya was already wailing on the training dummies, her wings outstretched, slashing one to ribbons, her spear stabbing through the heart of another. Romo was yelling, trying to tell her to stop, to focus, to hone in on his voice. Veronica was whining because this never ended up working. "I know, but it'll have to work eventually." Romo grit his teeth, what could they do? What options did they have? Suddenly Pariya flew right at them, eyes alight, Veronica jumping to bite the handle of the spear, trying to force it out of the pink girl's grip. A good hit to the head would stun her and break her out of Trigger Mode, that was her weakness. As Veronica wrestled with Riya Romo clunked a rock against her head, ending it prematurely. She failed to maintain control this time too.

"Aah! Aaah!" Pariya screamed as the post-Trigger seizure took hold. Veronica held her down to stop the tremors as best as the green canine could, Romo sighing. "I'm sorry, it must really hurt, huh?" He held his head, feeling awful. "Why can't this work?" She only was able to keep control a single time, and that was during their escape from the Survivalists in the first place. Maybe if they could control the Trigger the seizures would stop, that was the point of all of this.

"I'm sorry Kyo, I know you don't like talking about it." His apology was genuine, it was clear that the two had suffered enough. They watched Pariya and Romo excuse themselves, the two of them wanting to go train and sharpen their abilities. It was nearly sunset now, "be careful." Jake warned, giving them a wave as they walked off. L glanced between the two of them, it seemed that she too, was preparing to return to her tent. "Excuse me, Elinor," Jake started. "You wouldn't have happened to see a girl in your travels? She's about um, this tall," he held up a hand "and she has brown hair and hazel eyes. Her name was Reya," Eleven's expression changed. It seemed that she did know something, after all. She opened her mouth, then closed it quickly. "I saw a girl like that, once," she confessed, her lips down turning into a frown.

"She was killed by the aliens."

Jake's eyes widened, his shoulders sagging. Reya, the love of his life, was dead. At least now he no longer had to wonder, now he wouldn't have to spend the rest of eternity searching for her. "In my head I knew," he confessed, "but a part of me had hoped that she was still out there... somewhere, waiting for me." Jake's skin might be unbreakable, but his heart was still just as susceptible as anyone else's. "I'm sorry," Kiyoko whispered, "I know how much you loved her." Jake nodded, rising to his feet. "I'm gonna go on a walk," he said softly, exiting the white tent. Elinor remained, seemingly no longer anxious to leave. Kyo tilted her head curiously as the pink haired girl came closer, hesitating, then reaching out to touch one of her ear's. "Is it alright?" L asked and Kyo blinked, realizing her intentions. "Sure," Kyo grinned, L petting behind her ears.

Eleven's intentions weren't as innocent as they seemed, however. If she wanted to rebuild this world, sacrifices had to be made. She would need to satiate Thirteen and there was only one thing her brother wanted. "So soft," Eleven murmured, planting a tiny metal tracker into the dense fur. "I think someone might have washed them while I was sleeping," Kyo confessed, feeling awfully clean after weeks of travel. L rose, giving Kyo one last glance, "I suppose I will see you in the morning," she exited the tent, her hands shaking. She felt sick to her stomach, she felt like her Mother, but if Eleven wanted to get her brother and mother off of her track, then she needed them to believe that she was going to work with them. She needed Thirteen to believe in her and he seemed to have his heart set on the human with animal features.

It was strange, Thirteen had never been attached to something before. They had never been allowed to have pets in the castle, their mother had forbade it. Kyo watched her go, figuring she should get some rest. The cat girl closed her eyes, drifting off to sleep and entering the astral realm. While her real body appeared to be asleep, Kyo went to search for Romo and Pariya to make sure that their training session wasn't going to go south.

"Do you remember who you are?"

"I don't think so. I'm Varsu now though."

"Sing for me again. You want to be useful, don't you?"

"Yes. I don't know what that has to do with being useful, though."

"It means you can stay here and remain as entertainment."

"Okay. I guess I will sing then."

"It always was nice to have a songbird. I wonder what they would think about this?"




Pariya felt dizzy and sick as she woke in the middle of the night. How bad was it? Romo was fast asleep in their guest tent, and Veronica was curled up on a mattress. The pinkette stumbled and exited the tent. Around her the woods were quiet, a faint breeze flowing through was the only sound she heard. She limped about, clutching her head in a dizzy swoon, trying to make sense of anything she could but it was just so hard to do anything, really. "Remi, it's lonely." Pariya panted, both hands rubbing at the sides of her head as gently as if her head were a soft boiled egg.

She could faintly hear a strange sound and it echoed through her yet again, she felt it going all the way through. "Agh! It hurts!" Pariya cried, hands reaching out, barely catching herself on a tree, she almost fell off a cliff but couldn't. "What's going on?" The moon was still up but Riya didn't know what to do. She was wide awake... right? She pinched herself - yup, still awake. A tremor went through her again, stronger, a chill up her spine, a shake in her knees, head throbbing even worse than before, every sound vibrating many times louder than it should in her head.

Flash too bright to see it hurts, it hurts a blonde girl with bright blue eyes, cracking her neck it looks broken she smiles her fingers uncurl the woods are glowing an odd purple and this blonde girl is waving gloves hands voice shaking as she sings and it's just so bright and wondrous the colors keep blending with the noise in waves and streams and the blonde girl beckons and so the pink girl obeys because=

"Shut up! What are you doing?!" Lacey smacked the butt of her crossbow against Pariya's head, knocking her to the ground. "It's too early to be up, why are you causing such a ruckus?" Pariya stared blankly up at the Red Tent member, gasping and hyperventilating, feeling cold all over. Her head was in so much pain and Riya curled up, she was just so confused, what was that that went into her head and why did it go into her head? Nothing made sense anymore, she just wanted to vomit all over herself. "You were rolling around and screaming, don't you know how rude that is?" Pariya gulped, believing it. "Sorry! I'm sorry? But the moon is bright so let's smile bright?" Would a nice poem make her stop?

Lacey's face curled up in anger and then she sighed, reigning much of it in. "You know what they call people who scream at the moon?" Lacey grinned cruelly. "They call them lunatics! You're just a lunatic, you pink weirdo."

"You know what they call people when they kick others who are down?" Jake asked, emerging from behind a tree. "The damned," he knelt beside Pariya, looking at the wound Lacey had given her. "That doesn't look too good. Can you walk? Or should I carry you?" Jake didn't wait for an answer, he scooped up Pariya easily, the pink haired female so small and light. "Pick on someone your own size," Jake said, walking past Lacey and to the medical tents. "How's your head feeling?" Jake asked softly. He was on an early morning jog when he heard the commotion. The sun wasn't yet up in the sky, he was just at the start of his run, using the opportunity to think considering he had been unable to lay in bed any longer. Luckily, first aid was the first thing one learned in nursing school, so Jake could easily address the wound.

"Looks like she just scraped you. There's gonna be a bruise though," he went through the box of sterile supplies and pulled out alcohol swabs and a band aid, being especially careful due to Pariya's sensitivity. He didn't know if she had any sensory processing disorders either, so Jake treated her with care. "There, all patched up," Jake grinned, "try to catch some sleep, alright? We've got a lot of walking ahead of us today," that is, if they would be allowed to leave. L and Kyo would both need medical clearance no doubt from the Red Tent's doctor and now with Pariya's injury, she might just join the club of sick girls in the white tent area. "I'm gonna head back to my tent, alright?" He inquired, patting her knee.

Hours later, Kyo awoke with a terrible urge to use the restroom. She had been made to use a bedpan before, but now, Kyo wasn't certain if she was allowed to sit up or not. "Hello?" The cat girl cleared her throat, hoping that there was a nurse or a guard stationed outside the tent that could assist her. Was she allowed to move? Could she be disconnected from the makeshift IV and go use the toilet? Kyo did her best not to squirm, although her tail had a mind of it's own and was wriggling back and forth unabashedly despite the fact that it was wrapped in bandages and taped between two boards. It was rather uncomfortable to lay in the same position all the time, especially when your behind became numb and your tail was tired of being laid on.

"It hurts, but I'm okay." Pariya allowed Jake to carry her, still rubbing the painful spot on her forehead that got whacked by the crossbow. "Hmpf, next time get her to behave instead of screaming her head off out here." Lacey snarled, still standing guard just in case enemies came. "With her head like that she's gonna be a liability." Pariya looked at Jake, trying to focus her eyes and stop the dizzyness, her legs felt like jelly there was no way she was going to be able to walk at all. "Do you know what happened? There was a flash and then I was somewhere else but now I'm here again and I was screaming?" It didn't make sense to her, but not many things did. She was talking as Jake took care of the injury and she was glad to have nice people to help her out.

Pariya woke a second time, this time to Veronica nudging her. "Oh, hello princess, what are you up to today?" You might not know it from looking at her, but Pariya knew the truth deep in her heart even if Romo told her to stop dreaming up silly fantasies. The truth was that Veronica was doggie royalty, she was a dog princess, that was why she was so pretty and beautiful and why Romo always spent hours each day grooming her and checking her for ticks and fleas. "Hello princess you." Romo must have already woken up, the boy wasn't in the tent. A note was there, waiting for her, telling her to go and check to see if Kiyo was doing okay, if she was ready to go.

So the pinkette followed her orders, giving Veronica one last belly rub before leaving the tent, still rubbing sourly at her head bump, a parting gift from sentry guard Lacey. After punning her way past the nurse on duty busy with drinking something for her moonshine hangover, Riya came on time to hear the butt end of someone saying Hello. She focused her eyes to try to see in the foggy morning light but there she was in high definition detail, Kiyoko. "Hello!" She waved, coming to give her kitty friend a morning greeting. "Jake did this to me!" She pointed to the bandages with a cheerful smile, somehow not sad at all at being bullied by Lacey. "How are you? Can I help you with anything? A poem? Some food?" Her eyes focued a little, and Riya put a finger on her cheek. "Do you know a weird blonde blue eyes girl in my head that, no sorry, that probably doesn't make sense." She decided not to worry about it for now.

❝I am a hell in high heels. ❞

Kyo waited patiently for one of the nurses to come and check up on her. "Hey there, do you need to use the restroom?" Thank goodness! She was saved! "Yes," Kiyoko managed to squeak, her legs pressed together. The nurse called another one, a volunteer more than likely, the two of them sliding a bedpan underneath Kyo so she could relieve herself. With a sigh, everything came rushing out. Thank goodness there was no accident, Kyo didn't think she would be able to live that down. "The Doc should be around soon to check on your head," the nurse said as she left, closing the flaps to the tent. The smell of breakfast wafted in, the fire cooking a big pot of who knows what. Kyo was practically salivating at the smell, but she had a feeling she wasn't going to get any until their doctor swung by.

Before that, however, Pariya came waltzing in, looking pleased. She had a bandage wrapped around her head and spoke some alarming words. "Jake hurt you?" Somehow, the cat-girl was skeptical of such claim. Jake was the nicest man around, he would never hurt Pariya. "Oh, you mean the band aid, don't you?" Kyo sighed in relief once she had figured it out, although it did take a minute. "If you want, you can go get breakfast for me since I can't get up until the doctor comes and all." Kyo's stomach grumbled, she was always hungry these days and there never seemed to be enough food. Here however, they had started growing their own crops. Their camp was large, Kyo only hoped it wasn't too big to the point where it would attract attention.

A few minutes later, the Doctor came in to examine Kyo's head and change the bandages. "It all looks good from back here, just be careful, alright?" Kyo nodded, sitting upright on her own for the first time since the day prior. Her body felt weak and shaky, it was strange considering she had never had to lay this til before. Once the IV was out of her arm, Kyo put on her own clothes and went to meet Pariya next to the breakfast pot. "I'm free!" She stretched, tail swishing despite the fact that it was still pinned between two boards. She was supposed to take it easy, but well, in a world like this, who had time to kick back and relax? They needed to get back on the road and figure out where this disappearing light house was.

"Oh, about your question before," Kyo suddenly recalled. "I don't remember seeing anyone like that."

Jake hurt her? No, he wouldn't do that! Pariya shook her head, confused until Kiyo understood what she was referring to with the band-aid. She happily sauntered off to go and get breakfast, the cafeteria lady was there, doling out food for everyone. They had eggs, was there a chicken coop farm behind the tents that Pariya didn't notice? "Yay, meat!" She got two plates, one for her, one for Kiki. How was there meat? She wasn't going to question it until Romo gave her a grin, wiggling his two eyebrows comically. "You know it's mushrooms, right? It's not real meat. It's just mushrooms. Fungus." An evil grin rose on Romo's face while Veronica happily chewed on lettuce leaves. "Ew, that's weird." Mushrooms were gross looking! Even Pariya knew that much! "And if we eat them, we'll get infected and be mind controlled by Cordyceps spores!" Pariya screamed until Jake sighed, shaking his head.

"No, it's not that kind of fungus, it's safe. Trust me, Romo's just being a brat." Already girls were swarming around them, the cool mature guy Jake was being fawned over as well as the roguish bad boy bully Romo being ooh'd and aah'd about too, though to a lesser extent since Romo wasn't as handsome as Jake, nor as rugged. Riya decided she wouldn't think about it and just think of it as real meat. So with definitely real meat, eggs, and some salad for them both, she skipped her way back to the medical tent, where Kyo decided to answer her question before of the girl flashing in her head. "Oh, I see." She nodded as she handed Kiyo her plate. Then she realized that oh no, she only brought one fork! She would give it to her kitty friend then and eat with her hands.

"She was in my head and it was weird but I won't worry about that, it's probably nothing." She happily and messily ate her food, excited to get on with the day. They needed to get back to the shore but it'd be nice if Red Tent would show them the right direction to walk first since she didn't know where they were anymore. "We should find L and get going quick, I'm getting bugsy!" No, that wasn't it. "Ants! Antsy, I want to keep adventuring!" Whoever it was on the other side of the radio, they were waiting for them, Riya knew it! Maybe she'd find Remi there once and for all?

Kyo took the plate happily from Pariya, "That's alright, I can walk now, I'll go get another one," Kyo was all too happy to be up and about once again. It seemed that she didn't have to worry about a fork, however, as someone ran in, prepared. Veronica dropped a fork at their feet, clearly having been keeping watch over the airhead. "Wow, are you a smart dog or what?" Kyo said as she scratched Veronica under the chin. The dog jogged back to Romo, leaving them to consume their breakfast alone. No, Kyo hadn't seen someone with blond hair and blue eyes. At least, not alive. Sure, there was one girl with blonde hair and blue eyes, but she had died and her name wasn't Remi, either, if that was who Pariya was asking about. It was Teresa, a mother of two, who had watched the aliens strike them down and then drag her away when she tried to fight back.

She died two days after enduring the alien experiments, her will to live having left her long before the soul exited the body. Kyo remembered it well, it was the second time she had seen someone die, but it wouldn't be the last. The cat-girl looked up at the pink haired girl, wondering if that was the cause of her insanity. Had Pariya always been like this? Had she too, lost her mind after the world gave up hope? Pariya wanted to go and find L and leave, she was hungry for adventure. She was happy and that was what was important. "Yeah," Kyo put her plate down and rose, stretching towards the sky. "Let's go find her," Kyo suggested, putting her arms own and walking towards the circle of where other girls were gathered around Jake and Romo.

"Kyo! Pariya!" Jake called, jogging towards them. Kyo's ears twitched, "about ready to go?" He asked, rocking back and forth on his heels. He had eaten three plates and was raring to leave. "Just waiting on L," Kyo mentioned as she checked that all of her supplies were still in her backpack. "I spoke with the Doc, you're supposed to take it easy today. Pariya, make sure Kyo doesn't kill herself,"[/color] Jake ordered, walking off to collect their weapons from the check-in tent. Kiyoko rolled her eyes as she watched him walk away, wondering how he was faring considering he had just lost the love of his life. "Have either of you talked to anyone around here? Gleaned any information about a beach?" Kyo asked, hoping they had used the network of resources to see where there could possibly be a lighthouse that was only sometimes visible.

Eleven had awoken rather late for her liking. She recalled her travel companions, who were no doubt growing impatient upon waiting for her. With haste, she dressed and ate the plate set outside of her tent, rushing towards the center of camp in clothing that were much too tight. "Good morning, I apologize, I slept longer than I would have liked." Eleven said, hoping she had not offended anyone by running off time.

While Pariya didn't really have the time or brain to be able to sleuth out information, Romo was on the job. By the time they were all grouped up again and ready to share information as they waited for their new sixth member of the team, Elinor, to show up, Romo had a big grin on his face as Veronica nudged Kiyo, allowing her to rest on her back and sit if she needed too. Veronica was a big dog, she could handle the burden of another weight. "So I asked that Stella lady, the one who seems to be in charge of things here." The animal empath seemed excited and almost proud to share the news, and Pariya was happy for him. Of their duo, he had always been their brains. "She says the beach that matches the description the best, well, what it used to be named doesn't matter now."

Of course. After the aliens came, the face of the landscape and the Earth changed too, mutating just as it's humans did. Hardly any of the old and familiar remained now. "Apparently it's now known as Mitswald Beach, farther East but to the north of a spiral trench." A spiral trench, what did that mean? "What's a spiral trench? It sound exciting!" She knew what a spiral was but the word trench was news to her. Romo curled an eyebrow in amusement at her ignorance. "Well duh, trenches are like dug paths under the ground, so this one is probably in a spiral shape." Why was it in a spiral shape, that was Pariya's next question. Well, whatever it was, they were going to have to deal with it, weren't they. "The last obstacle on our path." Jake said in thought, rubbing his chin. "Then maybe us Wanderers can stop wandering?"

L appeared then, as if on cue, the last one they were waiting for. "No, it's okay. Let's go now though!" Pariya already double checked, she didn't forget any of her things! She might be an airhead but she was good at this at least, wasn't she? "Did you say your goodbyes to the girls here first?" Romo queried in worry. "You might not get a chance to see them again alter, after all." They were going on a journey, but hopefully it was almost done and they could find safety.

Eleven had hardly slept the night previous, living with the guilt of what she was going to do. Sure, the sacrifice of one more human was nothing in the scheme of things, especially if it would satiate Thirteen and get them off of their trail, but the humans would certainly feel the loss of their companion. Eleven shook her head, she had to be strong, she held the transmitter close to her, she would contact Thirteen this once and then throw the transmitter as far away as possible. It was in the dead of night that she contacted him, away from the camp. "Eleven?" He inquired, his expression becoming serious. "Where are you? The Queen has publicly deemed you a traitor for abandoning your people," Eleven grimaced at this news, she knew it was imminent, but she had been hoping to avoid such tedious insults.

"Thirteen, I've done what I promised. I've found your human," is expression changed, his hard face softening, a Cheshire grin tilting his lips upwards. "I know you were no traitor... sister," Eleven was shocked, inwardly, not outwardly. She would never admit that her brother calling her sister had genuinely pleased her. It was the first time he had ever referred to them as family rather than as comrades. "I've sent you the location, but do not attempt to contact me further." He nodded in understanding, the transmission ending. Eleven broke the transmitter in two, crumbling it in her hands, then threw it into a lake. She made her way back to the camp, laying restlessly in bed until morning.

Now she stood before the very humans she was going to betray, smiling as though nothing was wrong. "Everyone ready?" Kyo inquired, her tail swishing once more. She grabbed it to make it stop, not wanting the pain to shoot up her spine. "I've already said my goodbyes, let's be on our way," Eleven said, walking alongside them. Stella was waiting at the gate, two different colored eyes shining in the early morning sun. "Goodbye everyone, remember girls, you're always welcome back!" She said as they walked through the entrance, the gates shutting behind them. "It looks like it's gonna be a hot day," already they could feel it in the cool air, the impending heat that would make them sweat terribly.

"So, how far is this beach?" Already they began to set off, getting right down to business. They had all of their supplies, plus some new sleeping rolls thanks to the women in the camp that had allowed them to take them. Kyo had a new hat too, courtesy of one of the girl's that had knit it for her. There were holes for her ears too, in order to protect her scalp from the overbearing heat.

The trip would take two days to reach the Spiral Trench, then they would have to traverse it and get through. With steep cliffs on both sides, their only choice was to go through the maze of trenches in the hopes that they could get to the other side. After that it was one day and then they'd be at Mtiswald Beach, where hopefully the sometimes invisible Lighthouse would be waiting for them with promises of safety. Why was a trench dug? Some questions would never really be answered, would they? Already Pariya was panting, the heat making her hair even hotter and stickier as if it were melting because of the sweltering cruelty of the sun overhead. "Ouch!" Romo had touched her hair and now some pink goop was stuck to his hand, hissing against it as the skin burned. He shook it, trying to get it off.

"Sorry..." Pariya murmured as they walked, feeling bad because it was her hair's fault. "Is your hair even hair? Is it goo?" Romo asked as he poured some water to try to get the goop off. Riya did not know, her hair had always been quite the mystery for her, hasn't it? Veronica was trotting along, big long tongue just lolling out as they walked, she was hot too, they all were. Why was today such a hot day? "Do you want me to pour some water on your head?" Romo asked her worriedly, water sloshing from his canteen. Pariya shook her head again. "No, don't waste! Water is important! Water is life!" Suddenly someone put something on her face. "It's goggles." Jake said with a smile. "So your goopy hair won't melt into your eyes, that might hurt." The pinkette gave him a smile of thanks and they continued their walk.

Why was it called the Spiral Trench? Well, two days later they found out. There was a giant flying mutated creature overhead, too big to fit in the dug out trenches, but big enough that it could shoot into the trench, some sort of acid from it's body to hurt and kill it's prey. Considering the bones laid around the front of the trench, it's prey was humans of course. "Well, look's like we'll be facing off with that giant bird." It was too big, most likely the arrows wouldn't hurt it. "f we had a gun, maybe..." Romo thought. It didn't notice them yet, but soon they would have to jump into the trench and then they'd be in the crossfire. No wonder people in the past built it then, so they could try to traverse safely.

"No!" Riya cried, shaking her head. "Don't hurt it! This big bird, this is it's home. We just have to be sneaky and not hurt it!" She never liked violence, and killing such a unique looking bird, almost half metal in it's design, Riya did not want that at all. They would just have to move fast to avoid being shot is all!

|| Here|| Junna ||




Two days of walking, two days of endless poems, of staying on constant guard, of making new friends, sharing food underneath the stars, and moving until their feet were sore and their blisters had blisters. Kyo didn't mind it, however, in fact, she rather enjoyed it. Every minute spent together was one where they learned more about one another, but of course not every moment was perfect. They nearly got lost, were almost separated, Jake tripped and fell into a trap set by the aliens, which they then had to flee from. After an eventful two days, they at last reached the spiral trench carved out of sand into the face of the mountain. At the very bottom would be the disappearing lighthouse, which they would hopefully reach before high tide.
"This looks like it might take a while," Kyo noted, knocking her bow with an arrow in case the bird attempted a dive bomb.

"Let's get into the entrance so we're away from that flying terror, then we'll chat," Jake elected as they began to head for the entrance. "We do not know what lies within," Eleven stated, clutching the switch dagger they had gotten when they raided a hunting store on the side of the road. They had taken the path that was once the Appalachian trail, but was now simply a great hiking spot with plenty of outcroppings for them to hide in. Kyo was only slightly nervous as they reached the entrance and Pariya protested against killing the large bird. "We won't hurt it as long as it doesn't hurt us, how about that?" Jake proposed, keeping an eye on it. While he might be unbreakable on the outside, he had no idea if his innards were still susceptible to attacks. Of course, it made it a bit harder to reach when your skin was as hard to break as diamond glass, but Jake didn't want to test this theory out.

"Um, I don't mean to be rude, but that big ugly bird has probably eaten dozens of humans. Wouldn't we be doing others a favor by offing it?" Eleven shook her head, silky pink hair bouncing to and fro. "No, more tan likely, we'd only irritate it. No doubt our attacks will simply bounce off of a big, heavy creature like that." It had mutated to the extreme, was it even justified to call it a bird? Kiyoko wasn't so sure. Even so, they began the spiral, perhaps hoping to meet a few humans along the way. Who knew how long it would take them to get past this point and then to figure out the next part of the puzzle that would lead them to the human camp?

At the spiral trench, they had no choice but to move forward. "I'll lead the way!" Pariya exclaimed, running ahead, not so far that she was out of sight but enough that she was quite clearly in the lead now. She hummed and swung her arms, skipping as they went through. The bird was keenly watching, wings flapping, almost as if waiting for something. They had to be careful, it was big enough that it could be powerful. "It might have a mutation too." Romo warned as he followed after the pinkette. At the first bend in the path they could see it, there were a few scorched looking corpses. "Did they fail trying to be careful?" As she was about to step forward they heard a sound and Romo grabbed her, pulling her back as fire streamed at them, burning the air.

"Why was it able to attack?" Romo asked. Veronica too was nervous about this. Pariya felt something tickling her head but she decided to ignore because her head always felt tickly, a little more was no big deal for her. The bird let out a cry and more fire blazed around them from it's perch. "But why is it attacking?" She asked, glancing at the burned bodies. "If it wanted food, then these bodies sure don't look eated?" Something didn't make sense here, but they had no choice, they had to keep going. Pariya looked up in the air through the lips of the trench, trying to get a view of the bird. "It's cry sounds sad." It let out another shrill noise, and the pinkette could definitely feel fear coming from it.

Dig.

It seemed it was able to attack at every corner, and so they would send Veronica ahead as the dog was the fastest of them and able to jump out of the way of the blaze each time it tried to attack. After that it seemed to have to recharge, and so the rest of the party could make it through without too much incident. Close enough they were at the exit, free to get to the Mitswald Beach from here. "Okay, let's keep going, we're done here." Other than corpses they saw nothing. Romo looked at Pariya in confusion. "I said we're done here?" Pariya ran past him, continuing down the spiral. Her eyes were wide and she was not smiling, which was odd. "No, I have to dig." She said, continuing to run, following the spiral shape. It was evident she was trying to reach the center. "No! We're at the exit, let's leave!" Romo yelled, trying to grab her arm. The bird let out another cry and Pariya's eyes went wider, glowing.

"No!" She pushed Romo away, clawing at the dirt walls at the end of the spiral loop to keep digging the trench with her bare hands, her nails, with enough force to draw blood. "I have to get to the middle! It's important!" She was crying as she bled her hands against the dirt walls as the mutated bird continued to make it's noises.

Their navigation through the trench was somewhat of a train wreck. Between being attacked by the overgrown chicken and getting shot by fiery balls, they had a bit of difficulty getting to their destination. "The lighthouse!" There, just on the horizon, they could see it. The problem was, they would have to run across the beach with nothing to protect them in order to reach it. Night would be falling soon an with it, the tide would rise. kyo removed her boots in order to make running easier, L too, took off her shoes while Jake laced his tighter. They were about to make a dah for it when they realized that Romo and Pariya weren't following them. "Tch, I'll go get them. Start running!" Jake said, waving at the two girls. Eleven and Kiyoko nodded, darting across the beach as Jake ran back to the other two children.

"Come on!" He wrestled Pariya off of the ground and grabbed Romo's hand, following behind the two colorfully haired girl's towards the lighthouse. The bird continued to shoot fiery projectiles at them, cawing loudly overhead. "Run, run, run!" Kiyoko shouted as they darted across the beach. A fire ball headed straight towards them, Eleven reaching out to protect the cat girl. "Move!" Kyo shouted when something strange happened, the projectile shot back at the bird, hitting it on the leg. The bird screeched, circling overhead. "Wow!" Kyo blinked, impressed. Why hadn't L used this power before? "How did you do that?" L stiffened, grabbing Kyo's hands. "Later, once we're safe." She waved to Jake, the bird was now retreating, the muscular man catching up to them quickly.

Once inside of the lighthouse, the tide rolled in, the windows clattered but held fast as the entire building was submerged beneath the waves. They were trapped here for the time being, or at least, until they could figure a way out. "The next clue should be in here, right?" Kyo confirmed, setting her bag down. "Hello!" She called, a fish swimming past the window, almost as though she were dreaming. It was... strange to say the least, but she enjoyed it in a strange way too. "Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I'd be in a sinking lighthouse," the stairs spiraled up, no doubt their clue was on one of the other floors. Jake set Pariya down on her feet, taking a look at her hands. He pulled out his bottle of water and washed the blood away, gently wrapping them with a band aid. "What happened back there?" He inquired, looking to Romo to answer.

"We should start looking," Eleven said, clearly nervous about something. "I don't like how... quiet it is," she was right, it was far too silent for the ocean to be actively rushing past them. Kiyoko's ears twitched, she went to the window, noticing a small amount of water dripping in. "We're definitely under the sea," but the lighthouse still stood tall despite their circumstances.

Pariya was dizzy, and everything was spinning around her. She had to dig, she had to dig, she had to get to the center of the spiral! She ignored Romo's voice, he didn't understand, she was doing an important mission, a mission for God and to save the world! She had to dig, she had to dig, her fingers raw, her nails breaking, dirt into the red, she had to do it! This was her purpose, this was her goal! With wide eyes the newest acolyte got to work and began to dig, digging, clawing and scratching as she kicked Romo away when he tried to pull her. This was her duty, who did he think he was for interrupting her? Then a stronger someone grabbed her and picked her up. "No! No! I have to dig!" Pariya protested, fists beating on arms, but to no avail.

"What was that?" Romo asked, almost haunted, as they were now seemingly trapped underwater inside the Lighthouse. On the one hand it was nice that they were here now at last, and that Kiki's hypothesis was true. But on the other hand, what happened to Pariya? Romo was bothered by this. "Hmm? Ronnie, what's up?" Veronica was glaring at L for some reason as if something was wrong here. She was even growling, it was odd. "No, there's nothing suspicious about her, she's just a friend. C'mon, Ron, don't worry about it." He sighed, giving L an apologetic smile. "Sorry, she seems to think you're not human." The animal empath turned to Veronica and cupped her dog face. "She's a mutant, so humans don't all smell similar now, okay?" Veronica still wasn't convinced though.

Now they had to deal with two more things. What happened to Pariya, and also, where would the next clue be hidden? Pariya was holding her hands, whimpering as Jake took care of the new wounds she gave herself. "She just started freaking out?" Romo's voice was high, he didn't know what happened either. "Something in my head told me that I had to dig." She explained tearfully in the big empty and far too spacious lighthouse. "I'm sorry for causing trouble." The pinkette turned her head down, her gooey hair drooping sadly. Then Riya smiled suddenly. "But we're here! The lighthouse! This is so cool!" The sadness seemed to bounce away as if it never existed in the first place.

After a rough search, they found a few things. A set of jigsaw pieces but they were all blank and didn't seem to show any image at all despite smelling a bit like lemons. There was also a small hatch that no one was able to open no matter what they tried. Could it lead to the secret clue? "There's always some sort of puzzle before we can find the next clue." Romo explained. "What is truth? What is lie?" Pariya read a small paper in confusion. "La and da seem to be the options?" Her head was spinning, none of this seemed to make sense. "I think we need to solve these before we can get the hatch open." Romo lifted the carpet, there seemed to be some sort of answer input device here.

"Um, first step I guess should be the weird blank jigsaw puzzle?"

Something in Pariya's head told her to dig? It was... odd to say the least. They looked at her, wondering why she had decided to take such drastic action and to go so far as to hurt herself to do so. "Maybe it was the bird? It used the power of suggestion?" Kyo mused, sliding down against the wall in an attempt to relax a bit before they began their hunt for the missing puzzle pieces. Maybe there was something else? A bigger picture that only Pariya could see because of her ways of alternative thinking? Kiyoko bit down on her lip in thought, there were so many things about their traveling companions that were still a mystery. It wasn't a bad thing though, it just meant that they had more to learn about one another before they reached their final destination, what would hopefully be a human colony.

Unless, of course, this was all a ploy set up by the aliens in order to capture dozens more humans. If this truly was a trap, however, then wouldn't the aliens by laying in wait for them? "We shouldn't explore alone," Kyo suggested, rising to her feet. "We should all stick together," it would make searching the rooms go by a lot faster as well, considering there would be more people to turn over every stone. L didn't seem adverse to Veronica's growling. "Animals never liked me," she admitted with a mournful smile. "As much as I like them," she scratched at one of her horns, a blush appearing on her cheeks.

In a group they explored the other floors of the lighthouse, delving into every piece of furniture, every nook and cranny in order to collect all of the puzzle pieces. Once they were back on the first floor, they glanced down at their findings, a literal puzzle. "Whoever made this has way too much time on their hands," Kiyoko noted, causing Jake to laugh. Her tail swished, no longer in bandages, "La and da?" Kyo mused aloud. She had never been the smartest egg in the nest, but Kyo had figured out the first puzzle and she was determined to get through the rest. "Alright, let's start putting these pieces together and figure it out." Kyo drummed a finger against her chin while L leaned down to try and put the pieces together in a literal sense while Jake looked on, laughing once more.
