Joy Lamb’s parents ran a small restaurant. It was rather nice place which got a rather respectable dinner crowd. Since it was a family business Joy had been helping out here and there for a long as she could remember. Since she had entered high school this year she had upgraded to official part time worker so most school days she headed home to work at Little Lambs.
It was strange how normal everything felt
The magical power, the talking cat, the porcelain monster
It was like that world of strangeness was the place that I belonged
I probably did belong there
I had just been denying it
Ever since I had practically run away from my parents I had been trying to avoid it.
To live a normal life
Blackberry, that is what the cat called himself
Had I known what would happen because I accepted his offer things might have been different
Had I refused then everything would have been different
Yet I really never had a choice
Blackberry knew that when he made the offer
He also knew I wouldn’t be able to stop
Power is nebulous, both utterly essential and absolutely worthless
To truly understand someone you must first see how they handle power
That will tell you more about them then anything else
How somebody deals with power, how they seek it, how they reject it, why they need it
Those are all essential to that person, it is who they are, there true self
Student Council Building 5, Vice President of Security Office
Enforcer Wade grumbled to himself while he wrote the report about the operation. The vice president that he had been following the orders of had disappeared and because of the recent events Wade had been temporally promoted to acting vice president until there could be a new election. Now he had been placed in charge of dealing with the entire debacle at the Ark Tunnel Reactor.
Lynn hung holding on to everything. Space was easy to hold on to, it was like a burden that she had always had, easy and comfortable. Other things were more difficult to hold onto, thoughts were one of them. Every time she tried to grasp a though it fluttered outside of her grasp, elusive and impossible to capture. Another was her memories. She had trouble remembering the events that lead up to this, or anything at all from before now. Holding onto her self was the most difficult.
Emiray climbed the hallway as she continued to make her way toward the Reactor Room. The path was taking longer then it should have. As she kept getting closer things began to get weirder. Up and down seemed to be confused which was which. Corridors seemed to stretch on endlessly and connect to rooms in other parts of the reactor. Emiray still knew that she was getting closer however. Even Emiray was capable of detecting the oppressive atmosphere that was caused by the Euclidian Key, like the pressure was too high.
“Why am I always better then you? I’m not.” Said Rose as they stood on the ceiling. The floor seemed to be peeling upward like it was the top of a can getting ripped away. “Even if my block has broken you are still a stronger Esper then I will probably ever be because that is not who I am now. You even beat me once before. If this was just a battle of Espers then you would eventually win. I can’t keep up my passthrough long enough. But, that doesn’t mean you are going to win. Do you know why?”
The Phantom Thief stood in the hallway. The black clothes stood motionless. She was waiting, waiting for that man to arrive. She had made all her preparations. She didn’t know if it was going to do any good however, against the opponent she suspected she would be fighting preparations were useless. Then Svenn walked into view around the corner.
Rose took a deep break and said, “Now that I see you in the flesh I am certain. Your appearance and name are different but you are still the same person aren’t you. It has been a long time.”
Lynn shifted the security officer sideways to avoid the attack and then proceeded to shift the officer all the way outside the building. Normally she would have dealt with them in an easier and faster method such as shifting them slightly into the floor so that they would be stuck there until somebody dug them out. However this time she couldn’t risk that. If they were left there and something went wrong then the officers might die without being able to escape.
