Aria darted out the door to meet the others, the crystals bursting from her back. She was clearly on the offensive, ready to attack at a moment's reaction.


Meanwhile, Blair had a sour expression. "Hmph, they have a stupid way of fighting.  The explosions will just attract more of them.''

"O-Oh. Them. Yes..." King's gaze went to the floor. "They're... uh..." He trailed off, seeming to zone out.

"They used to work with us." Altair, who had shown up seemingly out of nowhere, spoke up. He hobbled on over, cane in hand. "We had a bit of a... misunderstanding."

"Yes, you could call it that." King agreed, nodding, snapped out of his trance. "A-A misunderstanding. But that's not a big deal, and it... doesn't matter... a-at all..."

''Who are they, though?'' Blair interrogated.

"It's... not something King feels comfortable talking about." Altair attempted to explain, but King had already wandered off, into the main room. "... I-I don't have to tell you guys, do I?"

"Well, how bad could it be?" Amethyst asked. 

"It's... pretty bad."

"Look, if it endangers our lives, we're going to need to know about it," Blair pushed, furrowing her eyebrows. "Unless you want some sort of conflict, you better tell us."


"Yeah, that'd be a good idea,'' Aria commented.

".... Fine." Altair sighed, defeated. "Now, everything I say is the truth, but I don't want you talking about it around King. The incident shattered him, and only recently has he gotten to the point he's at now."

"Get on with it, I'm interested now!" Lawrence piped up. "

"Okay, okay. In short... there were a lot more of us. King had... a son. An adopted son. Really, I think he made this group so his kid could grow up okay. When King founded the Society, all of us were working together to try and study Masked, get all the information we needed... and then things went wrong. In one experiment, the poor kid died, and... King was broken. Everyone said his methods were crazy, and next thing ya know, he and I are the only ones left. That's... the short story."

"Oh, wow, that sucks," Aria said somberly, pursing her lips. "I'm sorry that it happened to you guys."


"Hm," was Blair's only reply, untouched by the story.

"That doesn't sound very nice." Lawrence remarked, frowning. He felt sorry for the guy. 

Altair shrugged. "I hadn't really known King at the time, just wanted to stick around a place with shelter. and the kid didn't talk much. He was kinda creepy... But, yeah, beside the point. Now, I guess, you know about King's little secret. And the people who left after the accident... they vowed that as long as we stayed out of their way, they wouldn't hurt us. So, yeah, we're in the clear. Let's just... go get King and get out of here."

"Yeah, let's go," Aria said somberly, following Altair.


Blair wordlessly followed suit.

King was perched in one of the chairs by the table, packing bags for everyone. "We'll need food..." He murmured. "And water. Stay hydrated and whatnot...."

"Uh, King." Altair piped up. "We're ready to go."

The scientist glanced up at the group, grinning. "Ah, yes, perfect. Grab a bag and follow me!" And with that, swingnig open the door, he vanished into the tunnels.

"This is kinda like...ah. Nevermind." Hoxton murmured as he picked up a bag, following King.

And so, the trek began.

The tunnels were, as expected, dark and featureless. Occasionally, Masked or another explosion could be heard above. 

"How long of a walk is it?" Lawrence asked, hovering near the ceiling.

"I haven't a clue." King replied. "But at least we know where we're going."

"What're the odds of the tunnels collapsing?" Amethyst asked. Something about this place... didn't feel right.

King chuckled. "Oh, they're incredibly low, do not fret."

"Are they abandoned?"

"As far as we know."

Down the corridor, something was seen near the ceiling.


In the darkness ahead, were two white, glowing dots. You could also faintly see an open jaw, with a large amount of teeth. The dots were looking directly at the group, and the radio static from the night were much louder.


"...D'you see that?" Hoxton whispered.

"See what?" Lawrence asked, looking around. "I don't see anything outta te ordinary, but I hear... something weird."

Amethyst stared deep into the darkness. "Are those... eyes?"

King followed the gazes. "And... a mouth... what on Earth...?"

Whatever it was crawled along the wall to get to the floor, and shambled away into the darkness.


"Uh. What. The hell. Was that." Hoxton asked.
