Mercy sighed, forcing herself to muster up at least tiny speck of motivation. She had to at least carry on the conversation; being silent was just so out of character for her. "We're gonna be late for school," she said flatly, executing a single step before noticing something strange. There were two people she could currently see-she and Kotone. However, there were five shadows that ominously lined the streets.

"... Yeah." Kotone muttered. He glanced at Mercy curiously. "Something wrong...?" He asked, looking around. Other than the blanketing greyness and drained feeling, everything seemed normal. Then he saw it: Five shadows? "Weird." 


And of course, King didn't see who exactly was watching him. He just kept walking, Was he going somewhere? Or just outside? He felt urgency, but he didn't know why. "... Get. It. Together." He repeated.

"Five... Shadows," Mercy bluntly replied, pursing her lips as she fought the urge to fall asleep in the middle of the city. "Are my eyes being dumb, or are there... five... shadows?" She leaned against the brick wall of a building, crossing her arms as her eyes fluttered, struggling to stay open.

"I... see five shadows." Kotone replied. That made no sense. He yawned. "But you're seeing 'em, so it can't be that I didn't get enough sleep last night..." But he was still so tired. Why was that?

There was a slight giggling heard from just around the corner, but Mercy dismissed it as a trick of the mind. "School... Frick, I almost forgot about that," Mercy sighed, trudging along the cracked sidewalk in the direction of the school. "Wait, what day is it?" She was really out of it today. And she seemed to get sleepier and sleepier with each passing minute.

Phoenix sighed. Something was troubling the scientist, of course. But he wasn't nosy. 

And the attention he'd get if he flew down was....not wanted, either.

"It's..." Kotone trailed off, realizing he didn't know. "uh... we can check when we get there. Gotta keep walking." As he continued walking, though, he only grew more and more drained. This kind of exhaustion wasn't normal... was he sick? Was there a bug going around?


"The lab." King murmured, surprising himself. "I could always go there. For clues. Maybe... maybe it's a trick?" But... all over the place, scientists and inventors were vanishing. Couldn't be a trick. Could it?

Mercy nodded, stumbling along as she bent over backwards trying to keep her balance. "Yeah, no. I'm not dealing with this," she said finally, throwing her hands up in defeat as she slid down the wall of the building, down into a sitting position. "School can suck it." What was going on? Surely there had to be a logical explanation for her lack of enthusiasm; heck, she was arguably the most enthusiastic kid on the block! But there was something amiss going on in the world, and it had hit her like a freight train with a maniacal conductor.


Meanwhile, Green was ambling about, nowhere near as tired as the duo of friends. He felt incredibly uneasy, like there was something watching him, following his every step. He dismissed it as silly paranoia, but a nagging fear crippled his confidence. He began to walk with a purpose.

"Can we really just... skip?" Kotone asked, sitting down beside her. He certainly wasn't feeling like going to school, or really getting up at all, but... "I mean, would this tiredness really count as sickness? And... what do we do? Go home and sleep?" That did sound appealing, he admitted mentally, but that wasn't the point.

Phoenix shook himself. He should probably do some exercise. Or just become frozen to this flagpole.

He stretched his wings and flew.

King glanced up at the sky. Had he caught a glimpse of something... bright? "... What was that?" He murmured. He hadn't seen anything bright all day. It had gone off... somewhere. Curious, he followed. The lab was in this direction, after all...

"That'd be actually really rad," Mercy said nodding her head as the shadows crept closer. She breathed in a heavy sigh, releasing it slowly. "Yeah..."


The giggle was heard again, and the shadows sprang to life, soaring into the sky and swooping down on the unsuspecting two. 


It took a split second for her to realize what was going on. Mercy shot into the sky like a tiny rocket with an oversized engine and whirled around in a lame, drunk-looking circle, shooting fire every which way. The chances of hitting a shadow creature was a gamble, but she'd have to risk it. Besides, there wasn't anyone around, anyways, other than Kotone. Wait... there wasn't anyone around? With the struggle to process information serving as a dreadful blockade to her normal mental fuction, she was slammed into a building by a writhing shadow thing, its face a hollowed, ominous skeletal cloak, its claws reaching out in a vicious attempt to kill.

Phoenix landed on a fence nearby to rest for a bit. He looked around. Quiet. He looked back, and saw that scientist again. Was he being followed?

Kotone, meanwhile, had a later reaction. "... W-What the...?!" He stumbled out of the way as a shadow went at him, frantically crying out for help. His extra limbs had appeared, as hey usually did when he was startled. Nobody was coming...? Where was everyone? And Mercy- he whirled around, seeing the living shadow about to kill her. A chunk of the sidewalk practically jumped up, hoping to impale the strange beast.

The shadow was immediately swatted away as the sidewalk made impact with its... body? That wasn't quite the word for it. It was a wispy, willowy creature; a tangible shadow, so to speak.


Mercy was wide awake now, her fight or flight reflexes kicking into high gear. "KOTONE, WATCH OUT!" she shrieked, zipping past him at lightning speed to destroy the shadow behind him with a blazing blitz of fire.

The thing had stopped moving. The bright thing. King kept walking along, slower than he'd like to be. 


Kotone jumped back, barely getting out of the way in time. "W-What even ARE these things?" It wasn't like anything he'd seen before. The ground beneath him was trembling, and Kotone was prepared to impale another one of the shadowy creatures if he had to.

Phoenix observed King for a few seconds longer, then proceeded to fly away, rather high up, towards where Mercy and Kotone's battle was being fought.

"Shadow... thingies?" Mercy shouted above the roaring winds of shadows taking flight. She turned suddenly, ramming another shadow with a sharp kick to the facial region. "T-This isn't conversation time, dude! Attack!"

The concrete below Kotone's feet erupted into spires, managing to impale a creature or two. Or, at least, hopefully impale them. If these things were, like, actual shadows, maybe nothing would hurt them...

Mercy ravished the skies with bursts of scarlet flame, showering the villains with furious sparks. With the aid of Kotone, the shadows were quickly diminishing into nothingness. There was soon only a few left, scattered throughout their fields of vision.
