He simply laid there for a moment, regaining control of his senses. He could hear a quiet beeping noise that sounded close. Wherever he was smelled like rubbing alcohol and antibacterial cleaner. He slowly realized he was laying on something soft. He moved his hand – his left hand; he couldn't remember why his right hand wouldn't move – and felt that he was under a blanket.
Slowly, his frazzled mind put the pieces together. He was in a hospital.
He slowly let the memories return to him. He remembered why he couldn't move his right hand – it had succumbed to necrosis and gangrene, and Rythian had to cut it off to save his life. He remembered the cultists finding them.
He wished he didn't remember what he did to Brightmeer.
But what had happened after that?
Slowly, he remembered seeing Ridge. Then Ridge did something to him and all the pain disappeared. He must have put him in
Fallen part 5There was no oxygen left in the Old World, it seemed.More Like This
The second they went through the portal, Xephos nearly collapsed, and he was doubled over coughing until one of the scientists put an oxygen mask on him. Looking around, Xephos saw that Honeydew and the scientists had on oxygen masks as well.
The stories Lalna had told him about this place were true. It was nothing but a wasteland.
They had come through the portal in front of two enormous craters. They were surrounded by trees that had been burnt to a crisp, and far in the distance, they could see the hollow shells of houses and buildings.
This had been the battleground between Lalna and Sjin.
Xephos was shocked at how extensive the destruction was. The crater where Sjin's house used to be was enormous, but it wasn't as impressive as the one where Lalna's house used to be.
“I guess a nuclear meltdown is stronger than two nukes,” Xephos muttered to Honeydew, who simply nodded in awe.
One of the thugs behind them shoved th
Fallen part 3When Xephos finally woke up, it was dark, cold, and he was in immense pain. The ground beneath him was cold and hard, like concrete. His glowing blue eyes barely cast enough light for him to see by, so he fumbled in his pockets until he found the small fragment of glowstone that Honeydew had given him in the Nether.More Like This
By the light of the glowstone, he could see that he was in a cell.
Jumping at the sudden voice, Xephos turned to his right, relieved beyond belief to see Honeydew in the cell right next to him. They were separated by only a single layer of iron bars.
“A-are you okay?” asked Xephos. His throat was dry, his jaw hurt, and his head throbbed. All that pain, however, was shadowed by the agony in his shoulder. He clutched his arm as he scooted over to Honeydew, too nauseated and weak to stand.
“I'm fine,” said Honeydew. “They just drugged me. You got beat to a pulp!”
“Yeah, I remember... kinda...” mumbled Xephos
Fallen part 2Xephos and Honeydew walked along the gloomy, winding path along the enormous mountain that housed the main YogLabs buildings. They were silent, and they were alone.More Like This
Ridge had offered to come with them in case there was trouble – there was always trouble at the Labs – but Xephos didn't think it would be a good idea. Many of the staff were still petrified of him, but the ones that weren't would be able to tell that he was weakened, and he wouldn't be able to help if there was a fight or outbreak of some sort.
Honeydew was busy thinking about something Ridge had said to him.
After they made the decision to go to the Labs, Ridge had pulled him aside.
“Do you remember when I brought Xephos back to life?” he had asked. “I used my own blood to save him. I don't know what this will do to him, so keep a close eye on him.”
“What do you mean you don't know what it will do to him?” exclaimed Honeydew. “What could happen?”

It had been three days since they had escaped. Three days since the portals to the Nether had been sealed.
Three days since they lost Lalna and Rythian.
Next to nobody had the heart to rebuild their old homes, which had been destroyed by the Bedrock Zombies. Everybody who wasn't mortally wounded helped build a large shelter near the ruins of the Jaffa factory, which was serving as a shelter and a medical facility for everyone.
The only structure that was still intact was Lalna's castle, but it was still sealed. No one – not even Honeydew or Ridge – could go through the force field.
Out of everyone that had been captured, Ridge was the one that had suffered the most, especially because he had been kidnapped a month before any of the others. He was completely drained of his powers, only barely strong enough to fly. It would be a long time before he regained full strength. After all, saving Xephos and trapping Israphel had drained whatever power he had regained. Na
