    Your name, if you choose to accept it, is Last Kapernieks.

    And you frankly don’t have much of a choice, as you rather like the name.

    Life had been fairly boring for the last few years. You’d sold bait, tackle, and assorted salt life knickknacks out of a ramshackle hut on the outskirts of Key West. That was after fleeing your past as the son of an ex-KGB turned drug lord. But what you called your life had all ended a day ago…


    Now you’ve got an immortal witch in your mind, the one they call “Ruin” and “She Who Thirsts”, amongst other titles.

    You just call her Kiara.

    It was she who brought you back to life~ish; with the contractual obligation that you help her find her mind, soul, and body so that she may once again roam the earth. Or Rome it, which she says she brought down from the shadows.

    “I told you I wasn’t going to destroy the world, you idiot…”

    Either way, you are along for the ride now. Or maybe you’re the driver, seeing as how she isn’t anything more than a mind.
    Not exactly easy to wrap your own head around.

    It could be worse, at least you still have cigarettes.

    Oh, and a bitchin ride.

    >I made a version sans shark-sign as well, but meh

    “You mortals are quite foolish. You smoke those vile things despite knowing what they do?”

    “Can lung cancer kill me at this point?”

    “Hmm… Likely not.”

    “Then I fail to see the problem here.” You take a long drag to get your point across.

    Back inside the 72 hemi ‘cuda, rolling down the windows the rest of the way to fight the ‘bama heat, your head rests on the slightly cracked leather seat. The stick clicks as you play between gears.

    “So where do we go now?” You ponder though the haze of smoke.

    “This Professor proved less than entirely helpful.” Kiara sighs.

    “Nah, he’s a cool dude and I learned a lot.”

    “Like where my soul could perhaps reside?”


    “We’ve learned little, mortal.”

    “Chill baby, we’ve got all the time in the world, haven’t we?” You smirk.

    “…I’ve told you before to not refer to me as such things.”

    The witchy lady has a point, however. While McGruff certainly offered a lot of insight into the church and the Order of the Bleeding Sword…

    You still don’t have too much of a clue as to where it is you should go. Not too many signs with “Witch Soul 34mi exit 156b”, unfortunately.

    “Well should we head back to the Keys, or…”

    “I should think not, we should stay mobile if anything. Now that we know they can track my magic, I’d rather avoid any places we’ve had prior confrontations. Worse yet, we still have no idea as to the range of their tracking.”

    “Point. So oh “Harbinger of Eternal Darkness, Slayer of Puppies”, where do you think we should go? You haven’t exactly come up with anything, either.”

    “I grow weary of these taunts, mortal.”

    You can tell she’s getting annoyed, which was your intention.


    “Guess that settles it.” You shrug and fire up the big 426, feeling the rumble through your entire body.

    “Thinking with your stomach? How pathetic.”

    “Yeah well, until we come up with something better, I’m getting some real food.”

    After a quick lunch at a small mom&pop diner, you lean back in the seat and let out a satisfied groan. Quite a bit better then gas station food.

    Now you just have to figure out what to do next…

    Figuring its at least worth a shot, you whip out the cheap disposable cell you'd picked up at the internet cafe.

    Punching in the number, you put the phone to your head and lean back in the seat. You know by now what to expect.

    Yet again, the line is picked up after but a single ring.

    "Holy hell man, is your line encrypted yet?!?!"

    "Yeah, picked up some aligned crystals and a quadruple band scrambler." You rest your head on the steering wheel and fight back the urge to bang against it repeatedly.

    "Excellent man, excellent. I've got my end encrypted so we should be good. Heavy chem-trail activity overnight so we can't be too careful man."


    "So man, like, good timing! I was actually about to give you a call man!"

    This perks your interest.

    "So you found something?"

    "Something? Nah man, someone. Well, many someones in fact but most of them I'm pretty sure are reptilian mind pawns so I factored them out."

    "...So what did you find?" You fight the urge to sigh.

    "People, man, people. One dude who admits to being a part of a FEMA plot to abduct people in the night, another who said she was abducted, an old soviet scientist but I think he's crazy... And another guy who swears he is a reptilian who wants to come to our side, man."

    "A Soviet scientist? What does he know?"

    You hear something being shuffled around in the background.

    "Sorry man, just prepping my bugout bag. I'm not sure about him, man, pretty sure he's nuts. Dude said he worked on a lot of shit man, weird shit. Said someone was after him so he hid, said they wanted to kill him."

    "Kill him?"

    "Yeah man, said that they were after him. Dudes on his deathbed now so he's started talking on these sites man, deep sites."

    "Any of this mean anything to you?" You mentally ask Kiara.

    "The ramblings of a likely senile old man? Little as of yet." She retorts.

    "Anyway man, like I said I'm pretty sure the old bastard is nuts. Doesn't know a damn thing about witches, all he wants to talk about are blown out reactors and shit that the Soviets had him build inside of them."

    "Build inside of them? Like a platinum lining maybe?"

    "Nah man, strange shit but nothing like that."

    Ask the conspiracy nut about the soviet scientist specifically considering that a nuclear reactor theoretically could hold a witch soul. About the scientist ask where he is, what he did and most specifically how conspiracy nut found him

    Also ask about the abducted girl so we can have a face to face person to talk to. Ask where she is, why she was captured and again how conspiracy nut found her

    Also, finally, ask kiara-in-my-head (kinda a little deathly tiara?) to keep a lookout, what she thinks of the potential sources (girl, scientist and fema guy) ask her if SHE has any questions and if there are things which help a witches strength (ie opposite of platinum?)

    "Well what kind of strange shit?"

    "I dunno man, dude hardly spoke English. Kept ranting about rays of some kind, and pumps."

    "Rays and... Pumps?"

    "Yeah pumps, told me he didn't know the right word to describe them."

    Well now you're more or less at a loss. You don't really know what rays and pumps would have to do with a witch soul, if they even do.

    "But he didn't mention anything about a witch soul, did he? Maybe if one was housed somewhere he worked on?"

    "Nah but it sounded like he didn't really know what he was working on. He's in a hospital in Detroit if you want to talk to him, though. Like I said, not sure he's got what you're looking for, thought I was the one who was crazy for talking about witches."

    As the conspiracy nut talks you hear what sounds like a hefty bag being rifled through, as well as the metallic clink of what you would guess to be magazines.

    "How about the girl that was abducted?"

    "Well she doesn't know a damn thing about witches, but four guys in masks carried her off one night. She said they were armed with shiny swords, which is pretty bizarre. All I have other then that is her email..." The nut gives you the email over the phone, which you quickly write down. "Found her asking questions about who might have abducted her on one of my sites."

    "Alright I'll check into these leads, got anything else for me?"

    "Not a thing man, but let me know what you find or if you need anything. Remember, trust no one man. Reptilians are everywhere."

    "Yeah, I'll keep that in mind..."

    You hang up and finally bang your head against the wheel. Repeatedly.

    At least he had some info with his madness this time.

    "So now what?" Kiara asks, clearly bored.

    "Well first things first I want to email this girl. I figure the computers here should be anonymous enough, I didn't see any cameras."

    Heading back inside to a different section of the library, you find an open computer and plop down.

    After making an address that shouldn't be tracable back to you, you enter in the girl's address and start typing up a few questions.

    Namely, how she escaped, any info on her abductors, etc... Now you'll just have to hope she responds by the next time you check a computer.

    "That should do it." You nod and hit send.

    "So now what?"

    "Now we should get in contact with this old codger, find out what he's going on about."

    "Can't you tell if we can?"

    "From over the phone? This internet? No."

    So he is willing to talk about this stuff, at least a little. And was not apparantly privy to all the details at the time. Dr. Dimitri might be forthcoming with information if we suggest that we have information about the purpose of what he built.

    Suggest that we are tracking down some experiment done in that facility, something we will tell him about after we know more ourselves? Solve a mystery before his deathbed perhaps.

    He disconnected because he is sworn to secrecy/is scared of some of the details he knows or thinks he knows.

    He was disconnected due to a Sword hit squad reaching his home.

    No matter what, it is time to get out of the library.
    Options one and two, we might get further details by visiting directly, so we should find a way to reach Dr. Dimitri directly.

    You dial up the conspiracy nut again.

    "Hey man, you follow some of those leads?"

    "Yeah but I think your scientist might have fallen asleep or something. He said something about reactor four, and I'm pretty sure he meant Chernobyl."

    "Reactor four man? That's interesting, that's the same one that exploded isn't it?"

    "Probably? I don't know much about it to be honest. You have any info alluding to it?"

    "Nah man, nothing. I'll see if I can dredge some up but its going to be a while. Gotta switch out of my current place man, gotta stay on the move, ya know?"

    "Right. Well let me know as soon as you find anything out will you?"

    "Will do man, stay safe." The nut says before hanging up.

    "Guess we'll just have to chance it." You shrug and start driving.

    You don't know anything about the town you are in, but it doesn't take too long to end up in the countryside of Alabama. Pretty soon you find a nicely wooded area down a long road. You'll have good visibility from here, and should be gone before any of the Order show up.

    You hope.

    "Alright." You tell her, as you plop down on the forest floor, "Bon appetite, I suppose."

    As soon as you even sat down, the ferns and plants around you began to brown. Leaves even shriveling and falling from trees.

    "This is more then last time..." You notice.

    "I'm trying to make it so I won't have to do this again anytime soon, so hush."

    You shut your mouth and sit in silence as the forest, once green and vibrant, becomes dead and wilted around you. This isn't something you are sure you'll ever get used to.

    "You won't have to. Once I have my soul back, I won't require it as often, nor will I need to sap the life around me entirely."

    "Just hurry up, I want to get away from here as fast as possible." You say through your cigarette.

    A few more minutes go by, and by the time you push yourself back up...

    You can't see a living plant from where you stand.

    "We'd best leave quickly, mortal. This will likely attract some attention. And..."



    "Heh, would it kill you to thank a guy?" You smirk. At least she came close.

    The big hemi engine roars fiercely as you push it hard down the country road, heading back to the highway. The radar detector on your dash should alert you to any police presence, so you get up to a hundred and twenty for a stretch before backing off.

    "Having fun?" Kiara asks, clearly aggravated because yes indeed you are.

    You hop on the highway quickly, wanting to put some good distance between you and the massive swath of dead forest that Kiara just "ate".

    The trip is going to be a lot longer then the drive up to 'bama from the Keys was, so you settle in and let the radio play.

    ~Today is the greatest day I've ever known~

    Thankfully; whether its the nicotine, the Pumpkins, or the sunlight, you are feeling less shitty. Good enough to nearly forget you killed a man just a short while back.

    "Are you sure you know where you're going? It doesn't appear you've driven there before. Perhaps we should..."

    "If you say "stop and ask for directions" I swear I will ram us into that semi."

    "So what happens after we find your soul? I assume we go after your body?"

    "Yes I'd like my body back. This quasi-existence is growing tiring." She says, and you can almost picture her resting her chin and watching out the window.

    "Won't it just be some bones? Maybe some dust?"

    "I'm not sure, though I doubt it. If I had to guess I believe the residual magic in my body will have preserved it quite intact."

    "Sleeping beauty eh? Need a kiss from a prince to wake back up?"

    "Depends on how badly you want your mind ripped asunder, I suppose."

    Point taken.

    "So how did you learn you were immortal? Someone teach you back then?"

    "Learn? I didn't learn it, I pursued it. I was around seventeen at the time, though I don't know the exact age as time was of little concern to me. I wanted to live forever, so I found out how."

    The song changes but you pay it little mind.

    "Any ideas about this kidnapping? Think it was a witch?"

    "Possibly, I only know what you do. I'd be interested as to how she escaped, the Order was fond of platinum bindings which more or less severed a witch's ties to magic."

    You grunt in response before flipping through a few songs until you settle on a groovy beat.

    "Well if we end up in Europe, I assume you know some good stuff in your backyard eh? Some Roman gold perhaps?"

    "Hmm? Hungry for money are you? Well, some relics and treasures perhaps remain where they were when I left Rome. I suppose we could find you a cursed sword or something, if it weren't such a frivolous waste of my time."

    "Cursed swords?"

    Kiara doesn't respond, you get the feeling its not her area of interest perhaps. That or she just doesn't want you fixated on relic hunting rather then pursuing her hidden pieces.

    "So what do you do for fun, oh "Raven of Darkness"? I assume thousands of years gets boring without some interests or hobbies."

    "I grow weary of these titles, mortal. The ages are boring, but I have no yearning for them to cease. I passed my time doing whatever I wished. Ending plagues, starting them... Teaching younger magic users so they could help their people, killing off others..." She sighs, "Its not like I ever did the same thing for very long. Well, not with my sense of time, at least."

    "Starting plagues?"

    "If someone deserved it." She says simply.

    "Well with your power, will we have to stay close once you get everything back? There some kind of range to this whole deal?"

    "I'm not sure, I've never done it before and never wanted to do it, ever. I do know that you are bound to me for whatever eternity you so desire, and I will always have to maintain you with my power, if you wish to remain in your current semi-alive state."

    "Lopping off her head??? Hah. I would tell her to hide herself better, and to avoid me. I've little use for a novice and even less time to deal with one." Kiara huffs, and you can tell she saw the Highlander reference in your memories.

    "I dunno, if she couldn't use magic to escape then she might be resourceful. Maybe used a gun like I did, seems like the Order didn't expect that."

    "I don't want to have a beginner yapping at my heels like an excited dog, and they are ALL like that."

    "Well that sounds annoying, if you put it like that..." You shrug and pass a beaten up DSM. The driver looks you over like he wants to race, but you ignore him, not wanting any unnecessary attention.

    "How about any info in Rome maybe? Something we can use?"

    "We'll see about any of that in the future, perhaps within the tomes of Alexandria, if I can still find it."

    "Not going to say what they are?"

    "You wouldn't understand them even if I did. Even if I wanted you to know, which I don't."

    "Well miss "Slayer of Cute Bunnies", you can have your secrets, but I won't have you starting any plagues once we do get you back together."

    "I'll pass." You surrender.

    "But did someone teach you? Seems like there is more to this inexperienced magic user thing with you. You burned down villages?"

    "No one taught me, there was no one to teach me. It was a different time, mortal. A different place. A child incinerates villages, torches fields of crops... How do you think such things were received? I was born with this gift, as you have to be to bear it's weight. When people fear you, it becomes hard to find allies, so I had to rely on myself.

    Your curiosity gets the better of you. There's no way you can just wait and leave this for morning. Especially considering that the order may be after him, if he really is a magic user.

    The automatic doors slide open and you stroll on through, putting on your best "concerned relative" act even in how quick you walk.

    The nigh receptionist, a large and middle aged black woman, gives you a very harsh look.

    "Can I help you sir?"

    "Da. My poor old Uncle Dmitri, he is sick my family say. I wish see him as I hear he is bad shape." You blather off in your best Rungrish.

    The lady raises an eyebrow, and both of you stay like that for several agonizingly long seconds.

    "Its far past visiting hours, sir. I'm sure you can wait for morning."

    "No wait does not work. I must catch plane back to Moscow in morning, does not work. Please I need see him now, I am only family that can visit, rest is very poor in Russia." You do your best to play it up.

    You stop at the third floor and push through the metal doors. A few nurses and a doctor give you a startled look.

    Despite some concerned looks from security guards, they prove too lazy to bother with you, leaving you open to find the room. Which you do rather quickly.

    Upon entering the dark and quiet room, you take a minute to catch your breath.

    "So, come for me at last, have you?" Asks a ragged looking old man, deep crags in his weathered face, beady eyes watching your every move.

    ...Makarov trained on your chest, even from his position on the bed.

    "Whoa, easy! Its me, GrooveCuda9!" You quickly put up your hands and hope he doesn't drop you.

    "Ah! So sorry lad, I had to put away computer, did not want nurse to see!" The old man grins before stashing the handgun back under his pillow.

    "Hey thanks for the fucking warning!" You mentally scold Kiara.

    "I have other things on my mind right now." She replies.

    "Like how this guy is a wizard?"

    "No, like how he ISN'T the magic user."


    "You make good time here, did not expect you to show up." The old Soviet's smile fades, "Why you show up?"

    "I wanted to continue our conversation from earlier." You finally put your hands back down.

    "Ah, oh yes we talked. Grab me that water and we will talk."

    You snag the cup of water off a small metal table and hand it to him. The old man tosses it back before grinning again.

    "I lie, it is vodka."

    Also plan 4 different escape routes from this hospital, including ones that don't involve us having to go out this room's door.

    You smile and chuckle along with him as he sets the cup down on the table closer to him.

    "So reactor four, its the last thing you mentioned to me. What's so special about it? Are you referring to the one in Chernobyl?"

    The old man frowns at your question, before reaching back under the pillow. You tense up until you notice he pulls out a small bottle of what you assume is vodka.

    "Da, Prypiat. Reactor four is where I worked. The other reactors were the ones used to power the cities, but not reactor four."

    "You mean it didn't produce power?"

    "No no, it produce much power. That power did not leave, though. All the power reactor four made was used by our ray device, you see."

    "That's a whole lot of power just to do that, isn't it?"

    "Da, it is." The old man nods, before gesturing. You help him sit up a bit, putting a few pillows behind his back.

    "So is that why people are after you? Because you know that?"

    "Is possible, but many scientists disappear in Soviet Union, you know." The old man shrugs as he kicks back another shot.

    "Any idea who it is that's chasing you?"

    The old man shrugs, which you take as a no.

    "Any luck pinpointing that source of magic here?" You ask inside your mind.

    "Nothing yet, but stay alert. We may have to leave in a hurry." She replies.

    "So these pumps and pipes, could they have contained something corrosive maybe?"

    The old man nods at your question.

    "Da da, very possible. Very heavy built, we made sure."

    "Were they by any chance... Lined with platinum?"

    The old scientist frowns, sitting back in his bed and giving you a very hard stare.

    "Now how did you know that?" He asks, and you notice his hand inching back toward his pillow.

    "Lets just call it a hunch, but I'm not here to kill you old man. Just a guy looking for something is all."

    The old man hesitates for a moment, before folding his hands together in his lap.

    "Any idea what the ray you constructed did? How it was used?"

    "Well to irradiate something, I think. The ray could have funneled power directly from the reactor, much, much power." The scientist holds his hands up in a sign for large.

    "How about after the incident, do you know what happened to any of this stuff?"

    The old man frowns, and slowly shakes his head.

    "I left Soviet Union before incident, to stay hidden. I did not want to be found."

    "And the others from your team?"

    "Dead. All dead." The old man says sadly, pouring himself more vodka and making a small toast to them before downing it.

    "Keep that old piece handy, you never know when someone might really try to find you and kill you." You tell the old man as you reach out and shake his hand.

    "Da, but I am old and ready to die." He smiles sadly, pointing to the plethora of tubes and wires connected to him.

    "Just make sure its on your terms." You fish out a pack of cigarettes and hand them to him. The old man's face lights up at the sight, and you help him light one before you turn to leave.

    "Glean anything other than what he told us?" You ask Kiara.

    "Just some sad old memories of a dying man, nothing important. What he remembered about the layout might help, though." Kiara says quietly. You wonder if she had perhaps expected to find more.

    "Alright well, how about that magic user? Keeping a tab on it?"

    "No, well I mean I was, but its strange... It seems to be cutting in and out, I've never encountered anything like it before."

    "Yeah well, all the more reason for us to get the fuck out of here." You say even as you start quickly making your way toward the stairs.

    Which are now blocked by two very large looking security guards. You hope its just a coincidence, but your instinct tells you otherwise.

    Thankfully they left the elevator unattended, so you hop in and push the ground floor. With any luck you can just stroll out and get back to your car.

    Tough for you, luck doesn't seem to be on your side.

    A very strange man is blocking the doors when they again open. His mustache is curled at the sides, contrasting harshly against his shaggy goatee. It doesn't match his black suit at all.

    "Good job tracking him down." He coos as he pets a small metallic box in his left hand.

    "RUN!" Kiara shouts suddenly.

    "Fire!" You shout even as you leap forth from the elevator. Your fist collides with his face, which sends him flying backwards.

    Snatching down even as you punch, you attempt to grab the box. As your fingers touch it, however, you hear Kiara scream in pain. Your vision become blurred and the world seems to slow, but that doesn't stop you from running. You have to get out of here!

    There is a loud *thwap!* as a crossbow bolt imbeds itself into a wall of pamphlets behind you. You draw your sig and whirl around, noticing the strange man lowering the crossbow and raising a long barreled 1911 instead. Even with an obviously shattered nose, he appears like he is quite unfazed.

    Too bad for him, you've got the drop.

    You fire first, nailing the box just like you had intended.

    The world around you turns to flames.

    Its as though fire is spewing from the hole in the box, torching whatever it touches as it jets out in a massive torrent. The man seems to have dropped the box, which is now spinning in circles as it erupts everywhere. You aren't close enough to be burned, but this place is going to light up like a pyre pretty soon if it keeps up.

    The strange man fires, the round zipping past your head. Too close. Way too close.

    You decide against getting into a straight up gun battle inside a Detroit hospital. If your face isn't already going to be on every channel, if you stand and fight it sure will be.

    That doesn't seem to concern the man currently firing at you, however.

    More rounds crack past you as you sprint toward the exit. You fire over your shoulder to at least try to keep his head down, which doesn't prove too effective, but at least it seems to throw his aim off.

    What helps even more is that the flame starts materializing into a shape. A human shape.

    "BURN!!!" It howls as its arms flail, setting alight all that they touch. The voice shrieks once more, shattering all the glass nearby and you think probably bursting your eardrums. The large room suddenly skyrockets in temperature, you feel as though you are standing far too close to a raging fire.

    Wait, you are doing just that...

    The man hesitates, looking between you and the fire-thing. You can tell he's debating which to clean up first.

    "Get out of here! Quickly!" Kiara shouts.

    You could listen to her, or you could turn around to re-engage. Or you could do something else entirely.

    For once, you decide to just listen to her.

    The strange man gives you one last glance before turning back to face the fire thingy. He must have thought it more important to deal with, which hopefully means they haven't caught on to what exactly rests inside your mind.

    "That is a witch soul, I believe." Kiara comments, "But she's dying..." Her voice sounds sad.

    You don't reply, too busy scrambling out of the exit, which is easy with all of the glass gone.

    As luck would have it, there isn't any other threat waiting in the parking lot, so you sprint for the 'cuda.

    The big engine fires up the first time, thankfully, and you throw it into gear and gas her hard.

    Even in your rear-view, you can see the fire continuing to grow. You hope it doesn't reach the old man in his bed.

    Which quickly becomes no concern, as the flame all at once vanishes.

    "She ran out of magic..." Kiara pipes up softly, with perhaps even a bit of empathy present.

    You slow down as you hit the streets, doing your best to blend into traffic. Which isn't easy, not too many muscle cars around here at this hour.

    "Who. The. Fuck. Was. THAT!?" You bite out the words as you do your best to get to the highway.

    "That was a member of the Order, I believe. I don't have any other explanations, and the aura seemed correct."

    "Well why the fuck didn't you notice that BEFORE he got the drop on us?!"

    "Something about the way that soul was being used, think of it like some kind of jamming. I never expected them to have something like that!" Kiara retorts angrily.

    Well I would have appreciated a bit more honesty but moving on. We need to keep moving, pay in cash, honestly switching to a less conspicuous car no matter how painful it is would probably help. Stay in motels, pay cash, don't be suspiciously quiet but don't make a scene.

    Ask for a cliff notes version on how magic works as it seems sort of useful.

    You just drive and try to think of your next move. Laying low, at least for tonight, seems like a sound plan. By now, that lone guy probably has swarms of backup on the way, if they aren't already there.

    Exhausted, mentally and physically, you need a break.

    And it seems like Kiara does as well...

    "I just need some time to think of how to counter this thing, I'm not sure I have enough magic to do it without my soul..."

    "Well work on it as best you can, I don't want to keep getting tracked."

    "I'll try."

    Flipping through your options in your head, you try to figure out which will work best.

    Your dad surely knows someone with a good safehouse, one that you can make the drive to in a few hours. He has people everywhere.

    You could also find a low-key motel and just pay in cash with a little on the side for extra privacy, somewhere out of Michigan, probably.

    That conspiracy nut might have an idea of some place to hide out as well.

    Though you might be able to think of an alternative to any of these...

    Dad, we can also tell him that we might end up having to go to Chernobyl in the near future. He'll assume that since we need a safe-house and to go to Russia we're starting to take apart the Russian mob here and replace them but telling him the whole truth seems like a bad plan and he probably won't believe any lie we come up with other than that one.

    Figuring its best not to get your father involved in this, you hop on the highway and head for Chicago. Its close enough that it won't take too long to get there.

    Which is good, because you are coming down HARD off of the combat high.

    "Chicago? Doesn't that seem too busy?"

    "I'm hoping we can hide in plain sight, or at least in the crowd. Though I guess it didn't work earlier."

    "I am trying to get my magic presence under some kind of shield, its not as though I like being found."

    "Well hopefully whatever it is you are trying works, otherwise..."

    "Yes I know!" Kiara snaps, cutting you off.

    You sigh and fiddle with the music, flipping again and again, unable to find a song you want to listen to. You're blowing through cigarettes like candy but even they aren't helping.

    "Fuck," You yawn, "I'm tired as shit."

    "Well don't fall asleep, I have no desire to crash."

    The sun is already risen by the time you finally make it into Chicago. You notice you have some very prevalent bags under your eyes, you haven't gotten a real night's sleep since all of this shit started.

    "We both need rest." Kiara agrees.

    >> Papa-N !!z0ABcqUnNAP 03/18/12(Sun)22:14 No.18374248
    You pass through the outskirts of the city, eying up places. There are a lot of little motels around, none of which look like they would make for a comfortable night.

    So when you see the big Hilton sign, you head toward it like a moth toward a light bulb.

    Pretty upscale, for sure comfy beds, and hey, free wi-fi!

    Oh fuck, you don't have a laptop...

    Still, you walk in and try to look inconspicuous.

    Which doesn't work too well, what in your Hawaiian shirt and tan all the way up here...

    Thankfully the receptionist doesn't say anything about it, and after a bit of haggling (you plopping down a solid grand out of sight from anyone else), she agrees to allowing you to stay without a credit card, and without showing your ID.

    Another four hundred nets you use of one of the employee laptop and a guarantee that you were never here. They don't even register the room as booked.

    You take the elevator up, open the door with the key, and bolt it shut with everything it has. Taking the AK out of the duffel, you lay it down on the bed. You aren't about to take any chances, even with all of your precautions.

    "Holy fuck am I tired..." You groan.

    "You also stink, take a bath." Kiara scoffs.

    That can wait, right now you need to...

    "Also how the fuck can you smell me?"

    "The same way I can see things, I use your senses."

    "Oh. Well... Wait! You just want to s-stare at my naked body, don't you, you perv?!"

    "If I didn't think it would set off any tracking, I would give you a good brain sizzle!"

    Ah well, worth it.

    The ancient HP finally boots and you breeze through the shit to get to your email. Sure enough, one new one.

    >So your the one he told me about huh? ;-P Yeah some guys took me away in the night, cuffed me in really shiny stuff and locked me into the trunk. Dad's a locksmith so they didn't expect me to bust out of there with just a few wires and whatnot. I bet they hate to loose! What do you need to know? Also here's my phone number if that will be easier. XXX-XXX-XXXX. They seemed to think I was dangerous, didn't mess around, had guns out and everything. What else do you want to know? - Sexypandagurll843xoxo

    You re-read the email and sigh, its pretty obvious you aren't dealing with someone your own age here.

    Busting out your phone, you give the nutcase a try.

    Unlike past calls, it rings until it goes to voicemail. You hang up at the notification that his in-box is full. Figures. He did mention something about switching locations, you hope he didn't wind up in some trouble.

    The way I figure, if these guys have good connections, it is not impossible that they can access a database of all the phones connected to a given tower at a given time.

    If they see that our phone was both in Detroit during the hospital incident and around the area one of their agents vanished yesterday hundreds of miles away, they gonna get suspicious.

    Time for new phone. I'd say pick up a cheap prepaid at every gas station we pass til we have a dozen of them. One call each. Or start using payphones.

    You rip the phone and sim card out of the battery, your paranoia kicking to 11, you put them well apart from each other. The room has three alarms, one on the clock, one on the coffeepot, and one on the microwave. You set them all for 10pm. Going to be one hell of a wake up, but you like being a night owl.

    "So how strong am I, with this magic that you gave me? Do I get super speed or anything?" You ask.

    "Hah, no. With what little power I can even wield like this, I gave you all that I could. Just those bursts of strength, for now. Once I have my soul back... We can see about turning you into a wrecking ball."

    "I LIKE the way you say wrecking ball, say it again."



    Checking around the room, you notice it is wired up pretty well with a nice sound system. Which proves too tantalizing for your "mortal" self.

    "What are you...?! Make it stop!"

    You have no intention of stopping. Sending the shirt flying after spinning it around on your finger, you try to hold in the laughter but it just won't stop.

    You can't slow down now, this is funky country. You slingshot your boxers across the room like you would into a crowd of middle aged women.

    Then you collapse on the ground, holding your sides as you laugh harder then you have in a long damn while. Maybe you're losing your shit, you don't know, all you know is you can't stop laughing.

    And it isn't just you laughing.

    "Hah, I knew you had a sense of humor."

    "I guess an idiot can make me laugh after all." Kiara says through muffled giggles.

    "Well if you liked that..." You climb into the shower and start singing along, waiting for a high note....

    "Well tough for you, because I'm not stepping out of here until you at least sing a line or two."

    "Its not going to happen, you can wither away in the water before I'll sing."

    Whatever, you aren't going to let her drag down your mood.

    The shower even has a control pad for the radio, and you mess with it until you find another good station.

    "Oh yes it's ladies night And the feeling's right Oh yes it's ladies night Oh what a night...!"

    "Not happening..."

    You sing the rest of the song, Kiara adamently refusing to join in.

    ~You know this boogie is for real~

    "OH come on you HAVE to do this for me!"


    "I will no joke call up the pope himself and hand myself over unless you sing."

    You keep at it until...

    "Got canned heat in my heals tonight baby...." Kiara finally relents, and despite all the front, you can tell she's not entirely opposed to a little fun. Or so it seems. She even has a rather sweet voice.


    "Oh shut up, and finish up, I'm tired."

    Its a funny thing about towels.

    Shitty towels feel awful, like trying to dry yourself off with some noodilized concrete slab.

    Now nice towels, on the other hand, can make a man feel RIGHT.

    "Towels? You are this excited over towels?"

    "These towels? Yeah. I've been using a beach towel for the last two years. The SAME beach towel, laundry is expensive."

    "That is... Disgusting."

    "Tell me about it." You can't even be dragged down by her chiding as you dry out your hair.

    Flopping down on the bed, you are too tired to even crawl under the sheets. Its been a long damn set of days.

    "You aren't going to haunt my dreams, are you?" You ask, falling asleep before you even get a response.

    Marble ground, marble rows of seats in a circle.

    Old men in white togas milling around.

    Its got to be ancient Rome, you aren't a history buff but it seems likely. Or Greece, you aren't sure if there even is a difference just from what you can see.

    The men around you are speaking in hushed whispers, and they must not be able to see you, dressed in a towel, because they don't say anything.

    You doubt your yellow Hilton special blends in, so that must mean its a dream. Weird dream for you, though.

    Doors open, a man walks in. Not tall, not overly athletic, but you can tell just by the way he carries himself that he's important.

    You try to pick up on conversation, but you don't speak their language and you can't understand a damn word.

    Doors close.

    More talking, some of the men approach the man who had entered just now. They seem to be discussing something, until the man who entered is grabbed suddenly.

    "Ista quidem vis est!" He shouts.

    A knife misses by a mere inch.

    "Adelphe, boethei!" One of the men in togas shouts.

    Pandemonium. Daggers flash, lashing out. Blood comes in spurts as the man tries to fend them off to no avail. The crowd is surrounding him now, thrusting again and again despite his cries.

    Then you see her, as though an angel in white with golden jewelry adorning her pale figure.

    "Kiara?" You ask in a hushed tone.

    She makes no effort to respond, or even acknowledge you are there.

    Instead, she walks slowly and deliberately toward the crowd, toward the senators. Their eyes glowing a faint red, they step back to allow her through.

    Caesar, you know its Caesar now, coughs blood as he watches her approach.

    And its a dazzling approach. She looks haughty, superior, as though this was all her plan. Maybe it was all her plan...

    You don't speak Latin, hell you don't even know if you know any Latin words. Now, though, you can pick up on exactly what they are saying.

    "Y-you?" Caesar gasps, blood oozing from his mouth. Frothy, pink lung blood.

    "Me." Kiara smirks, before picking him up by his hair and dropping his head back onto the cold marble beneath.

    You notice now that her purple eyes, subdued when you first saw them, are visibly glowing now, and brightly so.

    She looks...

    "Evil?" Comes a quiet voice from behind you. Turning around, you see Kiara sitting on one of the marble rows, watching. Perhaps not sadly, but certainly without jubilation, as though crestfallen. She has her knees tucked up to her chest, her arms around them. You aren't sure how your subconscious put her into jeans, but that isn't too important.

    "Evil? Maybe a bit, I was going to go with scary." You say quietly as you walk over to her and sit down beside her.

    "I can't really blame you for it, he deserved it, didn't he?" You double check the towel, making sure your bits are still covered.

    "I like to think he did." Kiara says softly, watching the scene.

    The dream-Kiara has busied herself picking up the head of the dying Caesar, which she has encased in some kind of faint green fire, and slamming it into the marble beneath. The man is screaming now, screaming and begging, pleading for her to show him some small mercy and just end it.

    "Wow. Yikes."

    "I was... Emotional." She says, pushing her face into her knees, her eyes fixated in front of her.

    "This wasn't something I was supposed to see, was it?"

    "No. Somehow you wound up inside my dream. A byproduct of our intertwining, I suppose."

    Dream-Kiara is laughing now, which fills the room, as she holds Caesar by his face above the ground. The flame has intensified, and his screams... They make you shudder.

    "So why do you look so down, this is what you wanted, wasn't it?"

    "What I wanted? No, what I was drawn into doing through the events leading up to it. I'd have rather stayed in the north had I known... What lead to all of this..." She sighs and closes her eyes as Caesar's teeth are knocked out by her dream-self's glowing orange fist.

    Unsure of what to do to try to comfort an immortal witch re-watching her murder of a prominent historical figure...

    You reach around her back and give her a reassuring squeeze of her shoulder.

    Kiara flinches, but doesn't react beyond that.

    Her dream-self, appearing to have grown bored of continuing to beat the corpse (you assume he's dead, the screams have subsided), tosses it aside with a furious scream of frustration.

    She stands there, looking almost as though she's basking in the scene. Even covered in blood and looking downright terrifying, there is still a pronounced beauty to her. Her hair seems to float, as though caught in a wind, despite there not being one. Once again, her laughter fills this place, echoing off the stone walls.

    "I would have rather you not seen all of this." She says quietly.


    Kiara sighs and stands up, before turning her back and starting up the stone steps.

    "Lets walk somewhere else." Her voice sounds a bit off, but you can't place it.

    Following her, you step outside into the fresh air beyond...

    ...And into a very arid environment, covered in sand and brown, no green as far as you can see.

    A black haired little girl sits on a dune, and you follow her blank stare until you spot the burning small town of mud and thatch.

    "Keep walking!" Kiara almost commands without looking back or pausing, picking up her pace more and more until you are running after her.

    She sprints harder and harder, you struggle to keep up. The world seems to be streaming by in a blurred wave.

    "Wait up!" You call after her, before almost barreling her over as she stops.

    The area is a heavily wooded place, tall pines, brown leaves and needles underfoot. Back to you, Kiara is breathing heavily.

    Which is quickly drowned out by the thundering of hooves as a horde of rag-tag fighters fly past you. With a guttural scream of battle, they almost reach the Roman lines. Their battle axes raised, they look ready to unleash a terrible assault.

    Until a wave of fire erupts in front of them. Their horses falter, many bucking off their riders. The flame is coming fast, too fast for them to escape. Men and animal alike scream as they burn, the fire leaving none untouched. Many try to flee, or to extinguish the flame, neither to any avail.

    You can see dream-Kiara, clad in maroon robes, sitting atop a large and imposing chariot, her eyes flickering as she controls the flame.

    Caesar, perched atop a horse, watches with a satisfied smile.

    Jean-clad Kiara is on her knees now, clutching her head.

    You nearly leap off the bed at the sound of the alarms going off, and on instinct you grab the AK and roll off of the bed, shouldering the rifle.

    It takes several long seconds of you sweeping the room before you realize it was just the alarms.

    10pm, just how you set them.

    "Holy fuck..." You exclaim, setting the rifle back down and trying to slow your heart rate before the damn thing bursts out of your chest and heads off to run a marathon.

    Going inside someones head strikes me as more personal than having relations with someone, if we're here by accident, unwanted and can't really leave she probably feels a little violated.

    You decide against saying anything more, for right now. There may be a time and place to talk about... What... That you just saw, but now isn't it.

    Somehow you get the feeling she's glad you aren't berating her with questions or trying to cheer her up, she probably doesn't need that right now.

    Instead, after a long couple minutes of rubbing at your eyes, you force yourself up and hit the coffee. Caffeine, but something seems off...

    You shove a cigarette in your mouth, not giving a fuck that this isn't a non-smoking room.

    Necessary chemicals back in your bloodstream, you set about getting ready to leave quietly. Packing the AK back up, piecing your phone back together, getting dressed and making a note to pick up a new set of digs.

    You check the laptop, see no new emails, and wipe it of any trace you may have left behind.

    Washing your face off, you notice it doesn't appear that last night was too restful. Bags still under your eyes, zombie-like expression, yeah you aren't looking too fly.

    Gathering up everything, you head out of the room and downstairs. The lobby is quiet, and no one bids you any mind as you make your leave.

    Heading back out to your car, you ponder what to do next.

    I want to point something out; that girl contact.

    Listen, she can't be legit. If she really was showing signs of magic, and lockpicked her way out of that situation, they would have caught her by now. Think about it; us with the soul of the most powerful witch are having trouble keeping the Order away, why would she have an easier time?

    Or, maybe, she wasn't even kidnapped because she was a witch; hers was just a random incident not really related to what were going through.

    Or third, and this is the most important, she may be a trap to bait other, young up and coming witches and warlocks. The Bleeding Swords would not be ignorant of technology in this day and age, and it would make all too perfect sense to make the same online post; sound like they are a sympathetic teen in the same situation, and lure them into a meetup and off them.

    There's no point in asking if she's alright, she's not and because she isn't she isn't talking. We've done enough prying for one night, even if it wasn't our fault exactly.

    Let's just get out of here and get in touch with one of our contacts for more info or try to fly overseas.

    Also, we really need to come up with some anti witch hunter tactics, if we keep winging it eventually we're gonna get dusted by someone out of our league.. we need to find somone on the inside, or maybe a witch in hiding, perhaps what we need is an ally we can count on.

    Especially when being stupid enough to hand out personal contact information to anyone who asks.

    If she was legitimate, she's probably been caught again already. If we contact her again, tell her to meet us up at a place and be waiting there for like an hour beforehand. Also make sure of at least 3 escape routes, and bug out at the FIRST SIGN of trouble.

    It might actually be easier to prepare an information package and leave it for her. "You're a witch, you've got magic. These are the people to watch out for, don't do this, here's a training guide, good fucking luck."

    You check over your ride, inside and out, and notice nothing out of the ordinary. No bugs, no marks, no car bombs...

    Heading out into the town, you stop at every gas station that you find, buying a prepaid phone at each one. All this tracking shit might have you a bit paranoid, but you aren't going to risk it. You crush your old phone and toss it into one trash bin, before lighting your room card on fire until it melts into a puddle of black ooze.

    As much as you dislike Bestbuy, its the only computer shop you can find. With a sigh, you purchase a few cheap ones that you won't feel bad about destroying.

    Kiara still has yet to say anything, but you're fine with that. You figure you should give the girl her space, she'll talk when she wants to.

    Back on the highway, finally moving at a decent clip, you fish out one of the cells and try to figure out who you should call first.

    "Stay hidden, I've got to go, tunnel." With that, you hang up and chuck the phone out the window.

    Call time: 35 seconds.

    Hopefully not enough time for a trace. Shit, maybe all of tinfoildude's paranoia is rubbing off on you. You don't even know if this girl is a trap, for all you know she's some scared pre-teen desperate for help.

    For now, though, you are going with the plan you figured out.

    Pulling off into Glenview, you find a nice country-style diner and park there. Walking in, you have a nice breakfast of eggs and hash browns, watch a bit of da bears, and quietly slip a phone between the booth seat and the wall. You already wrote down your contact number on it.

    Unfortunately it isn't too hilly around here, so the vantage point you find isn't as elevated as you would like.

    You already called the girl again as you did circles on the freeway, telling her where to go and at what time. Its already fairly late, a bit past midnight, but she agrees with a "I'll arrive by bike".

    Now you watch the place like a fucking hawk for anything out of the ordinary. An hour passes without much to see but some bikers looking strung out from the road and the odd group of college-age kids.

    Until a thin blonde girl with her hair up in pigtails rests her bike, enters the diner, and sits down exactly where you told her to.

    Your phone rings. You rigged up a system you heard that Bin-Laden used, meaning you can talk though a phone into another phone to avoid being tracked. All you have to do is answer and walk back to your vantage point.

    "Nothing, no auras that I can detect. We may be too far out, though."

    "She a witch?"


    Yeah, maybe being far enough away to need binoculars was too far. You are pretty hidden under some bushes, at least.

    You answer the phone.

    "So like, are you watching me?"

    "That isn't important. FEMA could be watching my every move so excuse me if I seem paranoid. Now I'm going to ask you some questions and I want simple answers, got it?"

    1) You're entirely too cheerful for someone who was recently abducted, then escaped. I'd be curious to know why.

    This is the most important question, and how she answers this will determine everything after.

    If she acts too clingy, it shows that her story wasn't legit because nobody would be that trusting of random strangers after that last encounter. If she's too distant, she might be onto something.

    "Were you followed, did you notice anyone you're not familiar with keeping an eye on you? Has anything strange happened in the time you escaped?"

    Have Kiara scope her out for magic. If she's got it, give her a quick, quick rundown, and tell her to keep herself hidden as possible.

    If there's anything to suggest she's bait, or if she's too insistent on meeting us (WHICH WE MUST NOT DO), then we bug out.

    There are two options that can happen if we continue to talk to her.

    First, it turns out to be the obvious trap it is. We get dead.

    Second, she is genuine, and we take her with us. She is so naive and without common sense, I don't think it'd be worth it.

    So we tell her where to go, and follow her at a convenient distance to try and observe if she has any followers, then make contact once we're sure it's safe.

    I'd rather not cut and burn a little girl if it can be avoided. And let's admit it, a little girl can only last for so long on her own, even if she does have some magic. If we can determine that she's not working for the other side, we should help her.

    "You would have just died tired!" She screams, before running forward at an impossible speed.

    "Move!" Kiara screams, but too late.

    The little girl's flaming foot connects with your head, which sends you skidding backwards a good hundred yards until you slam into a tree. Coughing, wind knocked out of you, you don't even have time to scramble to your feet before she's on you again.

    "If I kill you without too much of a scene, I get lots of nice treats! So just be a good big bro and DIE!" You narrowly avoid the kick that levels the tree.

    You can't block the series of punches she lands, the last one knocking you back head over ass through a series of thorn bushes.

    "You idiot! You stupid little girl!" You shout, jumping back upright and trying to guard yourself better this time, "Don't you know they will just kill you, too?!"

    "'Oh will they!? Its been three hundred years and they haven't done it YET!" The girl kicks at the last word, and you finally mange to block.

    Until your arm snaps in half, at least.

    "FFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!" You howl, until your arm springs back upright.

    "Don't give up yet, you stupid mortal! Fight back or you're dead!" Kiara yells, and you guess she must have healed your arm.

    The little girl, well she at least LOOKS like a little girl, comes at you again.

    This time you try to strike first. With a shout you lash out with a punch.

    It looks good, up until the point she grabs your arm and flips you over, sending you flying a hundred yards yet again, where you land on the parking lot.

    Well, at least your face broke most of the fall.

    You go for your guns, drawing out the sig.

    Sending out the best double-tap of your life, you see two small blossoms of red on her pink summer dress.

    "No no NO! Guns are just no fun! Besides, unless you're loaded with platinum, they won't do much." She giggles before jumping forward and kneeing you in the chest, which sends you backwards YET AGAIN.

    "I hate to say this, babe, but this is clearly NOT WORKING." You tell Kiara after skidding to a stop.

    "Don't act like I don't know that! I can give you more power, but it will weaken me to the point I'll barely be able to talk. You'll have to let me feed right after you win. If you can win..."

    "Not yet..." You tell Kiara as you pry yourself off the ground.

    "Oh ho? I thought you were done already! Good! It would have been boring if you had given up so quick!" The little girl folds her arms and laughs.

    "Do you even know why they want you to kill me? You're just a weapon for them!" You shout even as you level the sig again.

    "Yes I'm a weapon, of course I'm a weapon! It doesn't matter WHY they want me to kill you, all that matters is they don't come after ME!" She exclaims as she twirls on the ground, knocking your feet out from under you, before kicking you hard again.

    Coughing, you wipe the blood off of your forehead as best you can as you stand up.

    "So you're fine with just carrying on like that? As a pawn? Killing off your own out of fear of death?"

    The little girls eyes narrow.

    "Well maybe THIS can convince you I'm not just an idiot on a pipe dream!" You shout, and put as much oomph into the punch as you can draw up.

    She catches the fist easily, almost lazily, before chucking you aside like a rag doll.

    "Weak! Far too weak! You need to put more magic behind it or I'll catch it every time!"

    You stand back up, brushing yourself off.

    "Kiara, put everything you've got left into this last attack of mine." You tell your head-witch.

    "I hope you know what you're doing..." She says, clearly concerned.

    With a battle cry, you rush forward yet again. The little girl doesn't even bother putting up her defenses, she sure seems cocky.

    "NOW!" You yell to Kiara as you try your one. last. punch.

    Even you, un-atunned to magic, can feel the surge of raw power. It courses through your entire body. If you had been sitting still, it would have felt like getting juiced up on every upper you've ever tried at the same time.

    But you're in motion. Glorious motion.

    The fist collides with her, dead center-of-chest. Her face is one of downright shock as she's thrown backwards into a car, the side of which dents in from the impact. The girl's small body crumples up as she falls back onto the pavement.

    "Now THAT was some magic." She says as she lifts her head up, a fang hanging out of her big smirk.

    "I'm not just some weak sap like you thought." You shrug it off, as though you could do it again. Kiara doesn't reply mockingly, which likely means she's exhausted to the point she can't talk.

    You keep missing the point. We just used the LAST of our power. We need to talk her down so that we can recharge.

    And while we're at it, we might as well turn her into an ally. It would be nice to have a witch on our side who actually knows what they're doing AND has a body so that they can do it reliably regardless of our own readiness.

    "Listen, we can talk right? You aren't bugged are you?"

    Electricity crackles around her small body, you feel your hair standing up on your arms and legs.

    "Oops, my mistake, I used the wrong power." She says smoothly, still eying you up.

    "Great! So we can talk! Lets start with your name, I'm Last."

    "Sarna." The 300 year old little girl says matter-of-factly.

    "Alright, see, we're getting somewhere!"

    "I sure hope so. For your sake, that is. If this doesn't get off the ground I'm killing you off myself and claiming you snared me with mind magic."

    "While you see... Wait wut?"

    "You better not disappoint me, I don't like disappointment." The little girl sighs, putting her hands on her hips as she stares at you.

    Little witch ally acquired? Find out tomorrow at 5pm on Zombie & Witch Part IV: STALKER, where is my T-90?

    WE DON'T. HAVE. THE. POWER. OR. MEANS. TO KILL. A WITCH. Do we want to? Yes. Can we? No.

    Feed her some line about letting us go. If there was a sniper or backup team they'd have been up our ass 30 minutes ago.

    Don't even ask her. Just turn around and walk to the car.

    I asked my girlfriend, but she's asleep so I didn't get an answer.

    I asked her two cats, they just kept purring at my feet.

    I'm going to just chalk it up to one of those age old mysteries that never gets resolved.

    But boy do I hate it when its gone.

    Well we've got a somewhat unhinged little witch who is wondering if she should kill us or not, our situation has improved!

    Do we have a shot with Kiara? Or are all romantic attempts doomed to crash and burn?

    Seemed like a better idea then just having her as generic bait for FEMA SWAT teams, or witch hunters

    SaRNA, small activating RNA -> Sarna

    SO how the fuck did we just convince a witch that had been most likely indoctrinated by the church and was world weary to turn traitor and why hasnt the church used its bullshit HOLY POWAHS to kill her the moment she cast that electric spell?

    She was just bored, mostly. Immortals bore quite easily.

    Also the Church and it's minions have to obey the laws of physics, mostly, and they can't just holy strike a witch down.

    >> Anonymous 03/19/12(Mon)03:39 No.18377819
    Because they don't have bullshit holy powers?

    And by surprising her with our level of knowledge and competence when most witches these days are idiot children that think shooting fireballs is fun? And because she is at least some part little girl and therefore idealistic and does not appear indoctrinated at all?

    I'm guessing the church has been dealing with "runt" witchs for a long time and won't be prepared to deal with a witch of kiki's caliber. A small fragment of her power brought us back to life, can kill forests and made a 300 year old witch backoff, even if it was largely a bluff.

    I ink we finally saw how truely ill-equipped we are to deal with the folks chasing us, we ought to brainstorm on what kinds of weapons we can get/use to be effective against
    both witches and hunters tonight.

    Ok so after all of the stuff we've heard, like the tech for tracking, getting attacked whenever we needed a RECHARGE, much less used our magic, or even talked to an old man about where Kiara's soul is, with a witch in a goddamn box that explodes things, how the fuck am i not supposed to be absolutely paranoid at all goddamn times with this shit??

    Simple. Now it was somebody who could understand our point of view. Witch hunters and normal people won't be activating their sympathy parts in brain when they know that you are a wizard and want to just talk this out.
