Talk to Tomas "I don't know, Tomas... I'm not sure what to think."
Tomas was sitting in a meditative pose. He generally did, whenever he was communicating with his voices. And at most other times, as a matter of fact. You'll note that I said 'voices' and not people. It was uncertain whether he had all the screws adequately put in in his head. Probably not. He heard voices.
Sophie waited for an answer. Even if he was insane, there was no one else she was willing to trust for advice. How that made sense, even she wasn't sure. But it wasn't an impulse. He really did seem to have at least enough screws to give reasonable advice. Something all too rare in this world.
"I have heard from the voice of Elijah, which is the voice of God. The things he said to you were true. He has been stranded these last years in a va
Rescue 02 Adam was waking up a second time. After being left by the twins, he wasn't sure what to think; even about them, much less about the situation of his rescue. It was certainly odd that his old friend had come to an abandoned place to rescue him in the first place, much less that it was inter-spaced with a random wacky revolution endeavor. (or whatever the original reason had been for, since it certainly didn't seem likely that it would have been obvious to anyone that he was still alive after all that time. But then wasn't it a coincidence that it was someone he knew, of all the possibilities?) He wondered if those things were related somehow. And if so, why?
He also wondered who it could be that he was left with. Most of the people he knew had lived around where he did, so probably there were few of them left among the living. He hoped it wasn't Malachi... his 'friends
Rescue 01 Adam became vaguely aware of the feeling of rushing movement and bright streams of somewhat pink light around him. He wasn't quite conscious enough to know what was happening, but he vaguely had in the back of his mind slight confusion as to why he was alive enough for anything to be happening at all. Or why it even would be, even if he was. He felt pain distinctly from almost every individual part of his body, which he was sure wouldn't have made sense if he was actually dead. But at the same time; he didn't feel quite like he was fully alive, either.
Though he slipped in and out of semi-consciousness, without ever being fully "in" enough to fully perceive what was going on around him, he vaguely got the idea that he was dragged in some long and ridiculously uncomfortable way to some kind of a dark room (Or at least darker than what he had become used to in recent years, that is.) and that someone with red hair and a ton of b
Escape from Amasia 03 "Get out."
The guards raised their guns.
"I won't say it again."
"We don't need your help. If we accomplish anything, that's that. Please wait in your homes for further instructions."
Adam and Sophie realized they weren't going to be let in any time soon. Hypothetically if they really wanted to survive, they could try to kill the guards and force entry, but that would only be sealing even further the impossibility of anyone solving anything competent out of the situation. And they might die in the process.
They'd run out of
Escape from Amasia 02 "Adam, wake up."
Sophie was shaking Adam awake, with not an overly reasonable success. He wondered how long it had been going on. He assumed it probably had been for some time, judging based on the pain he was in.
...Or wait, no... that was just because he was already in intense pain.
"I where am I? What's going o "
She jabbed a needle into his arm.
"Ow! What are you doi "
"You need to wake up. I know you've probably not slept in some time. But this will keep you awake for awhile."
"Why am I freezing? Where am I?"
"The power's completely out all over the city. There's no heaters, except tiny useless personal ones, so you better get us
O.W.N. meeting 01 *Hss.*
"Well, it looks like Thomas Hobbes and his childish delusions have finally been put down. Amasia and it's territories have finally come back under our control."
"We've lost the core planet in the process, however. But it is no matter. It has little resources on it of any value."
"There is the other issue, however "
"The item. We have as of yet only been able to track down one useable frame which had escaped from the living mass. It would be most detrimental to us for it to have been lost in the process of Amasia's collapse."
"Perhaps our efforts were not enough to preserve it?"
"There is no
