-Silvio is kneeling on the floor in a small cabin, putting logs into the fireplace. He feels a sharp pain in his hand and takes off his glove to find his hand is bleeding.-
Nomiki: <Still hate having to do all that by hand, don't you?>
-The Skitty hops up onto the bench near Silvio. Silvio takes a seat next to her, and she jumps onto his lap. Silvio starts petting her back.-
Nomiki: <Did you know? Today's international cat day!>
Silvio: Well, we'll have to do something special for that, then, won't we?
-Nomiki purrs as the petting continues.-
Nomiki: <Of course, that can wait until aaaafter your call~>
-Silvio glances at the phone on the desk.-
Silvio: Wish we knew what was keeping him... these delays are becoming far too frequent.
Admittedly, it's hardly unexpected...
-Zeal and Gui are probably around.-
-Savannah and Addie have been practicing for their battle and are probably ready to challenge the gym soon.-
Lucius heads down the stairs into the lobby and spots Dune and Deziree sitting on the couch.
Lucius: Well, she's right there if you want to check.
He comes up behind them just in time to catch a snippet of their conversation.
Lucius: If you want a good definition of "mostly dead", it's standing right behind you.
-Sarah stifles a chuckle at Lucius's response to Dezi-
Sarah: Okay, that was actually pretty good.
-Dune and Deziree look over their shoulders.-
Deziree: Oh, hey Lucius!
Dune: And Sarah. You two look like you just fell out of bed.
Deziree: Pretty much, yeah.
Shade and Jiraiya as on yoga mats meditating, and pondering life's questions.
Silently oh so silently do they meditate, so quiet if it wasn't for them breathing they may be mistaken for realistic yard ornaments.
Shade may be approached, but do so in a quizzical fashion. For today is a day to reflect on one's life decisions.
Lucius: That's because we did, pretty much. It's kinda hard to dress yourself when you're physically attached to someone else.
He holds up the chain connecting him and Sarah.
Lucius: Before you ask, it's a long story. I'll explain once we're fully clothed and not chained up. I don't suppose one of you can do something about this?

Sarah: The short version is, Maul happened.
-Zeal and Gui are walking around when they notice Shade. They don't seem to be doing much to avoid disturbing the calmness.-
Gui: Oh, hey, it's that person from that one time!
Zeal: Huh? Oh!
Shade opens one eye and beckons them over before resuming his meditation.

-Zeal and Gui simultaneously headtilt.-
"Jiraiya, please summon another mat, and give these two a place to sit, and join us. Hello again my friends. Forgive me, I have had a rough week, and I have been meditating on how I could better myself, and make better decisions to avoid such future conflicts."
Jiraiya summons said mats by using Mat Block. He quickly returns to his earlier position of deep meditation.
Zeal: Er... right.
"So, what have you guys been up to since our last meeting?"
Zeal: If you mean since yesterday, we watched the stars. That's something, I guess.
Gui: Oh, you saw him yesterday?
Gui: Huh. Well, if you meant since Fortree... then kind of a lot.
"Aah, praytell Gui."
Shade picks thru his bag, and pulls out a few things.
"I have food, you guys hungry?"
Dune: Oh, that answers a lot.
Deziree: Huh, looks like a standard metal chain... can't quite place the metal, though. Where'd this come from, anywho?
Gui: Well, about a week ago this one guy attacked us trying to kill Zeal. That happened!
Zeal: ...You say that way too enthusiastically. And is this really the sorta thing we should be talking about?
Gui: Maybe not!
Sarah: My mindscape.
Lucius: And no, we don't know why it was there or how it came back with us either.
"Hmm, interesting. I have been busy myself, ever since the J-team was hit with nightmare gas, I have felt a need to be more prepared. I have been practicing some martial arts with my pokemon companion here, as well as practicing wielding my Aegislash master sword combat. I need to find someone to help me make some objects of a very tech savvy nature, so I can purchase the equipment and hand them out when the need arises."
-Deziree's eyes go wide. Dune slides a few inches away from her on the couch.-
Deziree: You may not but I SURE CAN!
-Deziree vaults over the couch, pulling out a pair of bolt cutters from her backpack at her side as she does.-
Deziree: Ohmigod Sarah I don't know how you do it but you're AMAZING at creating Elsewhere artifacts! Now hold still!
-Deziree lines up the bolt cutters and clamps them down on a portion of chain wrapped around Lucius.-
-Mezzo receives a text and remembers to actually check it this time!-
Mezzo: Ooh. Hey Felis, hold still a second.
Well, as okay as I can be after hearing what happened to my brother, at any rate.

Lucius braces himself as Deziree takes to his chain with bolt cutters.
Lucius: You don't have to tell me twice.
-The bolt cutters break the chain with ease.-
Sarah: Heh. Maybe I should make a profession out of it.
Psyche has woken up and has walked down the stairs. ~Oh, you have an idea about the chain, then, Dezi? I've obviously been asking the wrong people. :P~
