The Citadel apartment…the last time I was here, was when I was sixteen during summer break. It’s just like how I remember it. The fireplace emitted a warm aura that immediately consumed the entire apartment. The walls were a warm series of browns and hazels – the perfect place to relax. As I sat back in a chair, I winced as my right arm felt a stinging pain. Using the omni-tool on my left arm, I administered a little bit of medi-gel to kill the pain.
I took a look at my cast, which had the names of Robynn and Matt written all over it, in their respective handwriting. However, as I looked on at my arm, I knew Zakir would never join the names strewn across my cast. I slammed my fist into my seat, feeling a deep hatred for myself, knowing that I’m to blame for putting his name on the Harrisburg’s memorial. In the swirl of emotions I was feeling, I looked back to what happened that day…

The voice was smooth and female. It sounded from somewhere in his head, a familiar synthetic tone. The world was black, and he was only beginning to become aware of it.
It is you. Excellent. Just hold on.
Piers could feel that he was lying down on something cold and hard, and felt as though he had been that way for hours. He wanted to shift his weight, but found that his body would not obey him at all. The blackness, he realized, was the result of his own closed eyes, but even they would not budge. The voice in his head sounded again, gentle and reassuring.

Rain slashed hard against the glass windows, but inside the bar, a fire roared in the fireplace and warmed the whole room. A few patrons mingled around, chatting quietly or staring into their drinks. This was one of the few places near Vescent's military base that allowed for a respite from wartime life.
It was with a sense of hurried distraction that Leta had shut off the lights, departed her quiet clinic (the last to leave) and then darted across the stone bridge in the rain. She was only outside for seconds, and she held a hood over her head and a scarf wrapped around her neck, but it was of no use: she couldn't have been more wet if she'd jumped into the sea.
Breathlessly she slipped through the doors, shutting out a rain-soaked gust of wind behind her. She waved toward the bartender, who greeted her by name (Leta spent more time alone in this bar than she cared to admit) and then found Fiearius across the room.
He was seated on a stool, forearms leaning on the bar, a glass of beer

Chapter 4: Acceptance
"Ensign?" Myst asked, after about an hour of us simply wandering around the dome and observing eachother.
"Yes?" I replied, then settled down at a soft couch that I had turned away from the all encompassing window on one side of the dome. I refused to face my fate.
"Why did you love William?"
Ah, such a simple question, and yet.. not.
"He was just.. always there. He brought a sense of stability to my life. If I needed help, he'd usually make it better."
"Usually?" Myst questioned, and brought his hand up to rub the side of his smooth face with a curious expression.
I nodded. Myst paced around the room in thought meanwhile, his hands now to his side. "And when he didn't make it better?"
I stayed silent, finding it hard to articulate myself.
"What didn't you like about him?" Myst asked as he sat down beside me, and put an arm around me. His voice was so rich, and soothing, I could get lost in its depth and tenderness if it weren't for the topic we were on.

“Let’s at least hear what they have to say…”
“Don’t be scared, Rhodes…stop shaking.” He rubbed my arm gently, glancing out as we were waved in.
“It’ll be fine.” Pulling me out in front of the two that sat in this little, white room, he put a shaky smile on his face.
“What do you have to say for yourself?” Cold…cold eyes. I couldn’t help it. As they stared at me, I hid myself behind Apollyon.
“There’s no reason for you to kill him, really…” Calmly, the tall man before me put his hands behind his back, holding onto mine. “I know what it looks like to you…but he’s not a monster.”
“He isn’t human.”
“But he is. He may not have been naturally conceived…but he has a heart. He has feelings…can’t you see he’s terrified?

Midnight hits. The four college morons open their emails and ready their programs. When the program begins to load, Jay reaches for Van and Dennis’s hands, which makes Van reach for Ed’s hand. Obviously, Ed and Dennis are slightly weirded out, but for people like Van and Jay, who cherish each moment they spend together, this is just embracing for the journey ahead.
Their programs start.
They fall asleep.
However, spirit like forms leave their bodies and fly upwards to space. The four grin with amazement, while each person is wrapped with a strange, white orb.
Character customization has begun.
Van begins to customize his character. He makes himself slightly more athletic looking than before, his eyes wider, and his hair slightly thicker and wilder towards the back, while his hair in the front spikes in a curved fashion from the bangs. He designs an outfit for himself consisting of a black leather jacket with a popped, fur collar with two leather buckles on it, bro
