Bron had heard it so many times that, practically immune to the sentence, he walked out with a satisfied smile and stretched in the sunlight, of course not even waiting for his follower to drag his sack full of garbage – pardon me, precious loot – out before mounting his horse, ready to head back to Riften.

The timbers blazed,
the ship's been razed.
The captain made one fatal slip.
The alarms made no sound
as we neared the ground.
And Fear held us in his grip.
They closed our eye
so they could hide.
And the console didn't blip.
The sky ran red
and we knew we were dead.
As the pirates boarded the ship.

It had been three days and, but for a few minor issues, things had actually been going well.
He'd talked to Mary about the Rabbit situation, and she'd taken the kids to her mother's place in Virginia, leaving him alone in the mansion with his problems. Now there he sat in one of the many studies in the Walter Mansion, reflecting on his progress thus far.
Keeping The Jon in the dark had not been an issue. Now that Peter III was here, if The Jon wasn't dragging his favorite human off on some adventure, they were down in the basement for hours at a time visiting HatchWorth, much of the time with Alex Reed in their company. This effectively kep

"HatchWorth?" called Peter II, knocking on the door to the vault.
He'd walked down to the basement, taking his time, preparing for what was to come. What are you going to do about this? Alex Reed had asked. He'd been talking about The Jon, but it had made Peter Walter II think of something else; what WAS he going to do? He was talented, yes, but he was not the inventor his father was. He'd never brought anything to life, created existence out of metal and gears. Once, he'd asked his father about the Blue Matter, the force that kept the mechanical creations alive, and his father had tried, truly tried to explain, but it might as well have bee

"You and I need to have a little talk, Jon," said Peter, hoisting himself up on the bench next to his father's creation.
"I didn't do it," said The Jon, his eyes frantic and full of innocence. Peter sighed, closing his eyes for a moment; perhaps he shouldn't have started with The Jon. The golden bot wasn't stupid, so comprehension wouldn't be a problem; he was, however, fragile. It wasn't going to be easy.
"No, no one's in trouble, don't worry," said Peter. He took a deep breath, "It's about the Colonel –"
"What, Pappy? Oh yeah, how's he doin'?"
Peter II's heart froze. He looked down, forcing the lump in his throat to disperse. Fina

Peter Walter II sighed as he slowly climbed up the winding stairs to the third floor of the Walter Mansion; it had not been an easy day.
His father, Colonel Peter A. Walter I, had died that morning after being confined to his bed for three days. Peter II had immediately turned off the Walter Wifi, but not before sending a message to the household:
"Everything is fine, stay where you are. I'll be there to explain in a moment."
He did not want the news spreading too fast. There were a lot of people (and robots) in the Walter Mansion these days. Though the country was still at war, the automatons had taken heavy damage after a year of combat;

Matt looked at the door way that Michael had left through so suddenly, "Shouldn't we go after him?" he asked.

The sound of the knock ricocheted through the hall, Matt held his breath unconsciously, unsure of what to expect when the door would open, if it would open. After what felt like hours the door opened. A man in a wooden mask, with what appeared to be a keyhole cut out of the center. He stood there in silence for a few moments. "Well?" The man asked him. "It must be something rather important to interrupt my work with blue matter." Peter shifted his weight on his walking stick examining Matt. "It might help if you're breathing." Matt hadn't realized that he wasn't breathing until that point. Matt was only able to utter a single word,

The Spine was still singing when the rest walked in, he paused for a moment, giving them a nod to acknowledge that he knew they were there before continuing the song for Rabbit. Peter and Michael walked over to the bed, and began to remove the metal covering his chest. Rabbit was vaguely aware of their presence, but he was focused intently on his brother, he stared straight into the bright green of his brother's photo receptors.
When the song ended The Spine made a motion to get up to allow Michael and Peter more room to work. Rabbit grabbed The Spine's hand tightly, a dark tear slipped out and fell down onto his pillow, "Please….

The Spine dug in his closet for a few minutes before producing s black chest with a silver lock. He fished in his pocket before finding the key to open the box smiling, all of his supplies were still there. It had been far too long since he had taken a night for himself. "Brianna?" he called out.
"Yes?" she called from the hall. She peeked her head around the door before spotting the black box. She smiled before grabbing The Spine's writs and the black box, and proceeded to the Hall or Wires.

She had called me crying a few minutes ago.
I left without hesitation. It's what I do.
He was facing away from me, and it was unmanly to hit a guy in the back, when he's not facing you.
It's worse to hit a defenseless girl, so I consider myself still more honorable than him.
His fist begins to drop to her, but mine is faster. I knock his head into the tree she cowers beneath.

But you are a strong one.
They call you a 'weed,'
and say you should not be.
But you still grow,

Your pretty white seeds.

New MorningKharadin's eyes burst open as he awoke, he quickly threw the covers from his body and frantically felt his chest, surprised when he saw no gaping wound. He laid back down in relief and thought to himself. A dream, just a dream. Slightly troubled by the visions that he saw Kharadin began to get out of bed, looking over at Rhianne who, despite all of Kharadin's movement was still sleeping peacefully. Kharadin moved his legs around and sat perched on the edge of the mattress still pondering what his dream could have meant.

The doors themselves were carved from the finest wood from the trees of Lamia Etan and had intricate weaving patterns scribed into them. In the centre of the two doors was a circular silver plate bearing the Xandathian seal - two crossed swords with a mighty have spreading its wings above them. Volghen heaved open the doors and stepped inside his room. His quarters were quite similar in nature to Sordath's throne room save for a few decorative details and the notable difference in size.
