The muffled sounds of footsteps and something being dragged across concrete were the only things that broke the otherwise complete silence. There were muffled voices and conversation, but not much could be deciphered of what exactly they were talking about. However, something along the lines of ’Looks to be waking up’.

”Welcome back to the land of the living.” a familiar voice sounded, as the figure splashed cold water onto the individual that had been previously unconscious.

”How do you even know we can trust him, huh?” another voice sounded. Somewhere out of sight.

”Because.” there was a small pause, ”He’s a friend the first voice concluded. Taking a few steps away before reaching for something off to the side.

”Maybe to you guys, I still don’t trust this. It just seems….off.” the second voice replied.

”Yeah well, Achilles, you don’t trust anyone. Remember when you didn’t trust us?”

”I’m still debating on that front, if I’m being honest.”

There was a small scoff and shake of their head of the first person as they came back into view. ”Take it easy, bud. Not many people can survive an exploding building like that.”

There was a soft sound as if someone cleared their throat.

”Okay….Maybe some can.” the person sighed. Looking back in front of them, ”You’re still recovering but most of your injuries seem to be on the mend. We honestly weren’t exactly sure if we were gonna find you alive back in there…It took days..” the figure sighed once again.

”And a waste of our resources and time. Both of which we don’t have much of, as you know-”

”Achilles, I swear. If you don’t shut up-”

There was suddenly the sound of another pair of footsteps, as once again another figure stepped forward. ”Enough, you two.” this time, a man’s voice spoke up. ”We can trust him, and we will.” there was something familiar about his voice as he spoke.

”Pat, you can’t be serious! We don’t know whose side he’s even on. For all we know he could-”

”There is no one I trust more than him. Even if…Time has gone on and changed things…us[/i, I still trust him.” the man spoke once more, before carefully removing the blindfold from the individual that sat in front of him, sitting in a chair. A small smile spread across his face, ”Isn’t that right, Luc?”

”This is all well and good and all, but we are running out of time. Whether he comes with us or not, I don’t care. I just don’t like being here for too long.” a shiver went down their spine.

”We’ll go soon enough, okay? But whether he comes with us, that’s up to him.” he said once again as he turned his head back to face the man in the chair. But something about his eyes just weren’t [i]right
. They seemed to be looking past everything, instead of anchoring themselves onto everything in front of him.

”You’ve been out for a long time…Three days by now, and I know…I know. There’s a lot that we need to explain. But what matters right now is that we’re all here again. If just not a little different.” a small smile appeared on his face. ”But it’s not just us anymore. There’s…There’s a lot of us. Some you may already recognize, from what the others have told me, and some…Some you don’t. But-” there was a heavy sigh before he continued, ”We need your help, Lucian. What we started it..It was only just the beginning. There is so much more for us to do. We can go back to how things used to be, us. Just…different.” he said as he stood up and took a few steps back.


”You mean like one of us now being blind? Some of having never worked together? I don’t-

”Even before you lost your memories you weren’t this paranoid, Ahichiles.” he chided with a smirk. ”But since we’re all friends here, why don’t you take that stupid mask off?” he continued to prod.

There was a brief pause of silence, before an annoyed sigh, ”Fine.” the figure known as Achilles finally relented. Reaching their hands up under the hood of their jacket, before pulling down the small leather mask that covered the bottom half of their mouth, and removed the lenses that kept the top half of their face hidden. Pulling the hood of their jacket back as they did so, before combing fingers through long blond hair, their eyes finally landing on the man in the chair. ”Hi, Lucian.” the familiar figure exchanged glances between Markus and Lucian, before looking at the other figure in the room with them, ”What do you think, Ren? Do we trust him?”

”I do. Even if it did take me a bit of warming up to him the first time we met. But, after I was told about all your adventures together, and how it was your efforts that resulted into where we are now?” they glanced around the room at the other three, before giving a small nod, ”We need all the help we can get.” they concluded with a nod.

Markus tilted his head back to Lucian, ”Only thing is, we don’t just need help. But..We need a leader. A proper one. And we can’t do this without you, Luc. So, what do you say? One more go? Like old times?” his asked, as he extended his hand forward, with an all too familiar mask in his hand.
