Neil Ruzgar Chapter 12Chapter 12: Where everyone makes some bad decisions
"Ugh, blacking out again. I hate blacking out like that." Destral muttered as he came to. He looked around, an saw that their room was incredibly dark, and he couldn't move at all.
He struggled a little bit, and realized something about their situation.
"Hey, does anyone else find themselves inexplicably tied up? Because I am."
Neil blinked as he tried to look around. His glasses had fallen down his face, and he tried to lift an arm to adjust them, but couldn't, and found himself grunting and getting physically irritated over it.
"I am too, Destral."
"It seems you were right, Lespi. That Alex sure was suspicious." Michael said.
"Gee, Michael. He knocked us out and tied us up in a dark room. In a forest full of human-hating or human-exploiting monsters. No, that isn't suspicious at all, Michael!" Neil said.
"Why didn't you tell us, Lespi?" Destral asked.
Before this very good question could be answered, the door opened, casting
Invision - Chapter 12Chapter 12
Back in Julia's bedroom, Cheesemaster was starting to wrap Richard's arm in his handkerchief, while looking at his pocketwatch.
"Where is Aloysious? He should be back by now!!"
"I'm worried that they may have gotten him," James murmured, worried.
"You mean the killer?" Dawn said.
Julia, who was holding Richard, had that far away look in her eyes again. She had said nothing for over an hour.
Cheesemaster got up after the handkerchief was tightly wound around Richard.
"I'm going to go check on him," He announced, "And tell him to hurry up."
Cheesemaster walked up and down the dull, grey corridors of the mansion, until he found the sitting room Jakob had been in-and nearby, there was Aloysious' unconscious body.
He gasped and kneeled downwards, feeling for a pulse, and let go a sigh of relief when he found one.
"Aloysious. Aloysious! Wake up! What happened to you?"
As he said this, he shook Aloysious' shoulders, and the elf slowly ope
Neil Ruzgar Chapter 11Chapter 11: A man named Alex breaks them out
Neil sat down promptly, despite the dirt floors, and quickly his emotions began to settle promptly; he had to remove the worry and doubt he had been feeling from himself, and the excitement he felt at possibly contacting Amkast again, and that made it somewhat difficult. He focused his brain, the distinct image of Amkast in his thoughts, and sent a thought to her.
Amkast, it's me, Neil. I'm trying to find you. Give me a hint, any hint.
He waited a bit for a response, and his heart sank as time passed and it didn't come. His emotions unsettled and he stood up just as the cell door opened. Michael and Lespi turned their heads to look, showing that Lespi was not asleep as they had thought he was.
"Where is Dest-General de Foc?" Neil asked.
"If I knew, you'd be with him," The rabbit lied.
Very suddenly, as the rabbit was saying something to them, he heard the faint, but definitely there voice of Amkast in his mind, saying "Roadriver-" And then s
Timelander - 3Chapter 3
"Wait a second, Anastasia is too short of a name? But Aura is a far shorter name!" Randolf mentioned. "That doesn't make sense!!!"
"Maybe not to you it doesn't," Dawid grumbled.
"And why call her Aura? Why not Ana?"
"Because I like the opporutunity of being able to call someone 'Aura'. And I don't like the name 'Ana'."
"Then I'll call her that."
"So I'm coming?" Ana/Aura siad with glee.
"I suppose so," Randolf said reluctantly.
"I don't see why not." Dawid added. "Again, the more the merrier. Gee, I really hope that is a saying by now."
"And where are we heading, Dawid? Out West, you said...? Why?" Anastasia said.
"Well, look at this," Dawid said, brandishing his pocketwatch again. He did a few flashy spins with it, grasping it by the chain, before tossing it upwards and catching it.
"Did I explain this yet? It doesn't matter. See this? The other Landers recommended I get it. It's a barometer... a pedometer... a everythingometer... for my own powers. Can you believe it? Only
Neil Ruzgar Chapter 10Chapter 10: Neil, werewolves, and Usagi
The city of Noir could have been pretty, if not for the perpetual state of ruin it was in thanks to its citizens. It was a large town, with a scattering of homes like a suburb outside of town. It was in one of these that they knew Neil must be in, or at least some wolves.
The town was nearly empty, since all the citizens were out prowling in their transformed state, and an eerie silence spilled all over Noir, except for one of the 'suburban' houses, where the yells and howls were originating.
The door was already covered in claw marks and completely shoved off the hinges and onto the ground.
The house was a single floor but had five rooms, and the walls and floor all had bloodstains and claw marks again. Somewhere in the house, someone was yelling. There was no time to waste.
They ran to the backroom, where the yells were the loudest; and those yells had the distinct voice of Neil. They swung open the door
