"Go with you?" Meredith had repeated into the phone.

Just pack up, and leave?

For the longest time, she, Riley, and the others had talked about it... but she never thought he would go through with it.

Now, here they were, with Meredith walking at Riley's side and the others trailing behind them. As they walked, Meredith found herself glancing at Riley. In her eyes, he was perfect. They'd been together for as long as anyone could remember. But, it was different lately. He was different. He wasn't the same Riley that Meredith grew up with. That Meredith loved.

Meredith snapped out of her thoughts as she heard Riley's voice, and the one word that fell from his lips.

Babylon.

In all honesty, Meredith had been too busy thinking to even notice that they had made it. Even the bright lights hadn't caught her eye. She was looking around, when she once again heard Riley's voice. And, he wasn't calling for her, he was calling for Elda- which halfway made Meredith roll her eyes.

"Are you kidding..." Meredith mumbled under her breath.

That's when Meredith began to think that's what was wrong with Riley.

Elda.

It kind of all made sense... whenever Riley needed something, he would never consult Meredith. It was always Elda. She shrugged her shoulders and glanced at the rest of the group, metaphorically putting her foot down.

"You know what?" Meredith said into the now silent group, "I'm not standing around, waiting for you two," Meredith motioned to Riley and Elda, "to make decisions." Meredith huffed and turned toward Kadence, the other friend in their group, "You can stick with them, but I'm really not putting up with it."

Meredith's calm personally had suddenly boiled over into rage. She hadn't been in Babylon for barely 20 minutes and it had already managed to flip a switch in her.

Without as much as a second glance, she began walking down the concreted bridge that led into what Meredith thought was a city. It was bright, but, weird-creepy, almost- and made Meredith more uncomfortable with every step she took.

Why in the world did she follow Riley?

Meredith huffed as she walked along the concrete, muttering to herself,

"Welcome to Babylon."

Elda Wyvern






When Elda got the call from Riley, it was like a godsend. She was all ready to go way before Riley even brought up Babylon. Elda was one of the only people to encourage Riley to leave the surface and go to the forbidden city. Now that it was right in front of her, Elda couldn't be any happier. Her friends were right beside her. She could be herself at last. No one was going to judge her harshly. It felt amazing.

Meredith took no time to ditch the group. Elda laughed as she walked off. Meredith never liked Elda, probably because her boyfriend trusted Elda more than her. "That's gold. She can't even stay with us for more than five minutes. Riley, you really don't need her if she's going to be like that." However, Riley didn't seem to hear her. He was figuring out something to do first. "I think exploring is a good thing to do first. Meet some of the residents that have lived here longer. This seems like a pretty big society." She shook Riley a bit, glancing over at [Vanessa] who was always quiet. "Hey, Ri, you're not paying attention again." Elda sighed as he snapped back into reality. He was always like this in a new situation.

"Let's go this way! There seems to be things going on..." Elda started to pull both of her friends in the opposite direction that Meredith went, but they were stopped by a person who claimed to be a chemist that made the drug they had all heard about: Elysium. Elda spoke up before Riley could. "Rivers, huh? How do we know to trust you?" She wasn't having anything until she knew this man was legitimate. She also knew Kadence shouldn't have anything until she can handle it. Protective Elda activate!

As Meredith walked along the crumbling concrete, she could still hear Elda's voice and the distance, and Meredith knew that Elda was lecturing Riley on how he didn't need her- for about the thousandth time.

"Pathetic."

Meredith said, thinking out loud. That's when Meredith noticed a man coming toward her. She didn't think anything of it at first, seeing as- as creepy as it was- Babylon was a city, and people other than her small group of "friends" lived here, but when he began to slow down, a chill ran down her spine. Sure, she was acting all big and bad in front of Riley, Elda and Kadence, but she fearful of this place. She didn't know what to expect.

That's why she almost didn't stop by the time he reached her. But, something about her incident with Riley and Elda spoke to her. For the first time in a long time, Meredith thought, What the hell.

Meredith stopped dead in her tracks as the man, who revealed himself as Rivers, slipped a small item in her hand, along with a business card of sorts. Then he was walking away, down the path she'd just taken down the concrete. Once Meredith was sure Rivers wasn't in sight, she opened her hand to reveal it.

Elysium.

It was a legendary drug, of sorts. At least on the surface world, anyway. She guessed it was a readily available source here in Babylon, however. Meredith stared at the drug in her hand for a few moments before slipping it into her pocket. If she only had this one hit, she wasn't going to waste it now. Meredith took a glance around and continued walking forward. The entire city reeked of something. Like iron- which signaled blood to her- and rotting... corpses?

Oh dear God. Meredith thought to herself.

Meredith walked around for a few more minutes, then saw a guy walking away from a large stage. People were dispersing from it, and she gave another shrug. If there was anybody to ask, he must be the one. Meredith ran a hand through her hair.

"Hey! Excuse me!" Meredith shouted to the man, managing to get closer to the stage, "Excuse me," Meredith said again, clearing her throat, "Could you tell me anywhere in this..." Meredith wrinkled her nose, "Place... that doesn't smell like death?" Meredith asked in a serious manner, her petite body managing a firm stance.

Elda Wyvern






Elda just shook her head as some random guy swept Riley away from them. It was nice to see Riley associate with someone other than them. As for the drug dealer, she didn't like the way he looked at Kadence. It was like an animal looking at its food of choice. Elda wasn't having that. Casually stepping between the two, she was careful to block Michael's view of the younger girl. She shivered at the word beautiful. "You may call me Elda." In a way, Kadence was like her younger sister. Even though Elda chose a life of horrible choices, she wasn't going to let Kadence ruin her life again.

Deep down, however, she knew Michael wasn't going to leave them alone until he got what he wanted. If he really wanted a client list, fine. Elda would play his game. She handed him $200 in cash. "One for me and one for her." As she saw Yoon take out the pills earlier, she reached in and took two of them. Showing him that she only had two, she grabbed Kadence. "We'll be on our way." Elda quickly headed off in a direction that wasn't the same as Riley or Meredith. She saw a woman smoking above them, but that didn't matter. "I'm sorry, Kadence. I just don't trust you with this yet. I'll take one to see if it's bad or not...If something happens, get some help." She pointed to the woman above them. Maybe that was stupid, but someone would surely call a doctor, right?

Within a few minutes of taking Elysium, Elda was unconscious and her body was in seizures. Powerful drug, alright. But at least Kadence was there. And that mysterious woman...
