I kept silent as we walked, starting now to wish that this cabin, or whatever, would hurry up and come into view. I desperately needed to crash for a sleep.
Midnight, calm. Your voice shows your pain.

"I am honestly at a loss for places where to keep William."
Truth is, I could bring back William by giving him part of my soul, but that might be to much for Midnight. She would have to fix the hole in his skull where the bullet shot through, and the emotional stress..

I shifted William's body with my shoulder, the burn in my calves beginning to annoy me. Where was Hybrid? More importantly, had he really killed Jo-Jo? There was no way she could have survived, yet..

It was incredible. I was standing on top of a mountain, and I could see just about everything! Other snow-coverd peaks of smaller mountains, the foothills, houses below, everything! But something was missing. I looked around and realized it was-

I woke up slowly and looked around. Jo-Jo was nowhere in sight, but I guess I kind of expected that. I also expected her to have run off somewhere, but I didn't know if she had yet. With a grunt, I turned over and drifted back to sleep.

This time, I wasn't having such a great dream. I dreamed that me, Jo-Jo and Simone had gotten in a fight, and that Jo-Jo had kille-

I jolted awake, breathing heavily. I calmed myself, shaking that horrible nightmare out of my head. I sat up and leaned against the couch, and looked around again. I questioned where Jo-Jo had gone, but I would find out soon enough.

I know it does...but therse's little I can do. Surely you understand...

Out loud, I said, "Well, I suppose we could keep him here...better in the cabin than among other vampires..." Better for me, not so sure about him...I though to myself. I looked up. "Can you see it? Up there," I said, pointing ahead. "That little black spot; that should be the cabin." Kivan looked up, too. "I would guess another hour...maybe less if we pick the pace up a bit."

(You know, I would have had you do that, but the person that played William dropped out...abandoned his character when he got back. ...So I'm at a loss now...)

Jo-Jo

I had moved to the other couch where the rabbit lay curled up between the cushions. I felt Hybrid's easy breathing, and then he was paniced. I looked up, but he didn't seem to notice me. How could he not, I was sitting right in front of his line of view when he opened his eyes. Some wierd alien thing..

Then Hybrid sat up, looking around. I gave a puzzled look, and cleared my throat.
"You okay there?

Hmm? Jo-Jo sounded close...but where was she? Then it donned on me. I had not yet reset my eyes to fully accept light rays on earth. I had to do it every time after sleeping, otherwise I wouldn't be able to see a lot of things. My eyes shifted colors a few times before returning to the color they were, and then I could see Jo-Jo clearly. "Yeah, I'm ok." I responded. "Just had to do something to my eyes. It's something I have to do, otherwise I can't really see much." I explained. "I can adjust my eyes to see specific lights, amounts of light, and other things, but when I fall asleep, they reset, so I have to set them to a specific setting after I wake up."

Jo-Jo

I looked at Hybrid, my expression fathomless. "I see.. I don't like sleeping, really."
This was getting awkward with Hybrid, and I was anxious to leave before Simone came back, which I'm sure she would.

"You're bound to her, you know. Simone. Phsychically, emotionally, spiritually. She made a wish on some sort of bottle. I felt it as soon as she said it. Lycans have a link to each other like that. You might say that she could control you, seeing as what she wished for. I bet you're marked now, as well."

I smiled half-heartedly, and lifted up my shirt to show my stomach, where an imprint like burn was. It was in the shape of a half-moon, with arcane symbols. I never understood it, but we all had one. We meaning Simone and I.

I stroked the rabbit which was now resting in my lap, his nose twitching occasionally. Looking back up at Hybrid, I gave a cheeky grin, and then settled my face back into its emotion-less state.

We approached the cabin, and Kivan opened the door for Simone and I to go in first. Trying to make me feel better...didn't work...much. I looked around. It was originally built for a small family; it was big enough for us for the night. "Well...I guess we should stay here the night...you probably need sleep, Simone, after walking for so long with..." I still couldn't make myself say it. "You can just set him over there," I motioned to a corner. I couldn't look at anyone. I looked around, and walked into the small kitchen, listening to Kivan, "It's not very big compared to our castle, but it's split up. There's two bedrooms, one there and another there. Midnight just went into the kitchen, and the bathrooms over there. That should be everything you need, right?" I sat on the floor, pretty much sitting in a corner. I knew I wouldn't feel better until I had finally avenged his death; until I had killed the Bionics, and the Strange controlling them.

I listened to Jo-Jo as she talked about me and Simone being bound together by a wish. So she HAD used it after all. Jo-Jo then said Simone could be able to control me. I thought about it. Did she mean physical control, mental control, or emotional control? It didn't make much sense to me. Jo-Jo then showed me a weird-looking symbol on her stomach. I lifted my shirt to check, and found nothing, then let it drop back down. I sat there and thought, unable to form any words. Even if I could have, what would I have said? She flashed a grin, and I finally thought of something. "...I'm at a loss for words." I said with a laugh. I really had nothing.
