Dyllan slowly trudged up the main staircase of the building he called home, steadily making his way up to his family’s apartment. He’d just suffered through a two hour argument between Andie and her shadow. It had begun as soon as they’d gotten out of Maddie’s mindscape.

“Disappointed?” Conmer’s face ran blank, then slowly began to shift to a sly smile. “Oh, a bluff.”“No. I just really thought you could add three to four and square it. Guess I was wrong…” Four new ninja appeared behind Contre, their pixel eyes all colored an aggressive shade of pink. Though one might mistake them …[continue reading]

Chapter 59

“Alright.” Andie’s shadow rolled her eyes at her ego, choosing to pointedly ignore the overly dramatic attempt at menacing her with a sword. “Just to make sure we’re on the same page, what you’re saying is this: If a shadow defeats their ego in combat and seals them away – as we had been planning …[continue reading]

“I mean, honestly, Kiddo…” Contre sat down on one of the unconscious ninja and posed like she was in the middle of a meeting at some big corporation. “Just because you need information doesn’t mean you’re going to get it.

A hint of a smile grew on the corner of Genrou’s lips, and interest smoldered quietly in his eyes. “A life festival…?”“Yes. Don’t be fooled by the misleading name.

“…Yeah… Thanks, Cedric. That helps.” Andie half-forced a smile. “Now, let’s open a portal and get the hell out of here.”“You two go on ahead.” Cedric stood up and turned his gaze toward the rooftops. “I’ve got something to finish up before I follow you.”“…Sorry, what!?” Andie’s smile twitched with rage. “We literally just finished …[continue reading]

Intermission 1-3: Life Festival 1

Renz strolled down one of the TS Long Cons many corridors. It hadn’t been long since he’d woken up from passing out in the ship’s hangar, and he couldn’t help wondering what exactly had happened. So far all he knew was that someone had knocked out the entire crew, Conmer’s mother was somehow involved, and …[continue reading]

Chapter 56

Cedric pulled Andie and Dyllan into a nearby alleyway. “Reach through the darkness, my Cunning.” The black drone that was Cedric’s vice rippled into visibility, revealing ears and a tail. Even though his alliance with his shadow was no longer secret, openly showing its side effects still made him uncomfortable – and he could tell …[continue reading]

Intermission 1-2: Loscia Awakens

Loscia’s eyes slowly drifted open. She was in a homgen hospital. Her room was air conditioned, leaving it cold and still like the night. It made her uneasy to lie down in a place like this. Still air ought to be warm, punctuated by a cooling breeze. Sure, the night was cold and still – …[continue reading]
