Comments: Okay, here's the situation. Some desperate kids want some ice cream from some ice cream truck, but he's delayed. Let's not assume he's stuck in traffic for a bit, okay?

Team Umizoomi decides to go find the ice cream truck, but wait a second, when they are using Umi Goggles to find the ice cream truck, where's the driver? Was he out going out for help? The problem is that the ice cream truck has a flat tire.
Then the driver comes back and yes, I knew he was talking on the phone to someone, but why wasn't he calling for help on his phone or even a tow truck? He sounds like he's calling some random guy. After that, the kids get th

Comments: Okay, this one was an internet meme. A big one. Here, D.W keeps on bugging Arthur for working on his project. She annoyed Arthur on his plane project like 3 or 4 times already. Then, the turning point is when D.W believes that the toy plane Arthur was building is actually meant to fly, and then she throws it out the window. If I were wiseguy, I would've thrown it somewhere in the house, not outside the window.
Then, here comes the memetic part; "I told you not to touch it!" Arthur charges a tremendous fist on his hand and then punches D.W in the head. D.W screams which is a bit annoying even for little kids. After that, his parents state "no TV for a week", and I'd agree with Arthur that it was also D.W's fault as well.

Tears of Epoch: Chapter 8
Ernaut woke up for the the morning. When he woke up today, he realized that he was on quite a thrill recently, and that thrill is only going up the hill the further he is going into his situation.
“Good morning Ernaut. Hope you had a good sleep!” Genevie said, greeting Ernaut for his starting morning for today.
“Ernaut, I heard you unlocked the Tear of Heaven, and everyone is after you. I have already told Wally not to execute you, because I have appropriate evidence talking about the Tear of Heaven, but he still wants to kill you. Anyways, here’s the plan for the next mission. That is, we will explore the area around us to hunt some possible Chromas, so I can see your powers that you got from the Tear of Heaven.” Genevie said. Genevie already wanted to ensure that the powers of the Tear of Heaven are new, because from what Genevie knew from the archives, Aruku had already abandoned the Tear of Heaven because she felt like it caused her enough trouble, but

Tears of Epoch: Chapter 7
Ernaut was jolted awake by the sudden opening of his bedroom door that he temporary got while staying with Janice. Janice looked like she was a panic.
“Ernaut, I have bad news for you. You cannot stay here any longer. You have to get moving!”
“What is it? Are they after you? Or even myself?”
“Oh, this is miserable! I saw that people were chatting about you, and they threatened to silence anything about Aruku or even the Tear of Heaven. To make matters worse, I found this out on my front door;” Janice pulled out a flyer that said “Wanted: Ernaut; Boy Who Possess Witchcraft and Associates with Comet Caller. Reward is 100 diamonds for whoever brings him into justice.” Ernaut’s heart boiled in response. He was paranoid. Have all of the people of the Nexus lost respect in him for being so heroic with such exotic magical arts?
“Oh great, what am I supposed to do?”

It has been an day since Ernaut lost his parents, and he was caught for witchcraft by Wally. Janice had let him stay in her estate until he knows what to do next, but what? He didn’t know for sure, but what Ernaut wanted to keep in mind was that there was still hope for him; could there be anyone else who was still interested in the Tear of Heaven, or even the Comet?
“The Chromas seem to be hunting for me. They took my family, and this power seems to be attracting some sort of monster that would cast dark magic altogether. Janice once told me that these were the evolved versions of the Shades, later adapting light rather than darkness.” Ernaut explained to himself over the day. “Since my trial is tomorrow which likely means I’ll be executed to death, I have till today to plan my next move.” The door leading out to the foyer was still closed, but Ernaut still wanted some time alone with Karin.

I Am Gabriella
There once was a woman
Who wanted to fulfill her dream
A dream to become a good queen
Queen to find new dreams
Dreams that would fly and soar
Which would make a change for good
Her beautiful hair was like a goddess
Touching down to below her knees!
Her clothing was bejeweled as regal
Including her top and bottom
Her navel was covered by a blue fabric
A fabric that was see-through
And she did not wear any footwear
With the exception of sapphire anklets
Grace and elegance will rise upon her
It's time to start a new age
A new age of peace and change
Peace that would motivate everyone
Change to make the world forever
And repair and what has been lost
Once we've done it all for the sake of us
I am Gabriella, the queen of the Haven Tribe who is willing to fight against the Comet and the Chromas.

Tears of Epoch: Chapter 5
Ernaut woke up for another day. Today was going to be the day that he would use his bag of gold that he had been saving up from chores and services to buy a new present for his parents, which is going to be what his parents wanted. This was one of those days where people take breaks from work to go shopping for their families.
“Hey, I’m going out to buy something valuable, what do you want?” Ernaut asked.
“I would like that one ruby ring that I saw in the jewelry market. Believe or not, it is valuable. As kids before you were even born, we favored gemstones and jewels. When you went into that mine, you couldn’t just mine one yourself? Oh wait, you didn’t have any tools, and you weren’t even licensed to find proper gemstones. Anyways, I think with that amount of gold you can buy that ruby ring. ” Noah replied.

It has been a day since Ernaut has been blessed with Karin’s power, also known as the power that originated from the Tear of Heaven. Ernaut has been exhausted from teaming up with Karin to look out the night in order to find a night howler to kill. Wally and Shion began to investigate north where the wolf had been already killed by Ernaut himself to find out what happened there, and what did Ernaut do to actually kill it.
“We’ve found nothing, maybe the wolf went somewhere else?” Wally said, on the sight of where the wolf was. There was no blood, no good sights!
“Oh, that’s just silly, if a wolf was just right there, why would it move somewhere else then? Refusal wouldn’t be a good answer because they often times hunt for prey, and most of their known candidates range from smaller beasts or even us!” Shion said, looking critical of the situation.

Comments: Okay, here we go for this one. Madame Gazelle decides no more playgroup next week because she's going away on some kind of trip which she isn't giving away on the instance.
Then, we have a flashback where Madame Gazelle (at the same house) taught all of the parents of the characters in Peppa Pig. Wait, whoa whoa. Is that the same Madame Gazelle? I highly doubt she'd last that long in terms of age/longevity. Maybe there's like a 2nd Madame Gazelle or something like that, but honestly you know, there's no way that she'd still be teaching at this point of age, depending on how old she is. I can estimate that depending on how old Mommy Pig/Daddy Pig are, she'd be like 50's/60's right now. This is my estimation now.

Comments: This time, it's the playground episode. We've got a tire swing (and monkey bars together?). First of all, who positions that swing towards the bars? Their pretty much asking for someone to go to fast and suffer head damage from the bars. Also, that fence looks so gappy that it looks like someone could just slide through it/jump over it if they wanted to.
Everything's fine in the beginning, until George cries after Peppa pushes him on the swing. First of all, why would he want to even play on the swing if he's even afraid of heights? Or even on the slide as well?
Then, the conflict is when Peppa gets trapped in the tire swing. Everyone in response laughs at it, I wouldn't find someone being stuck funny. Then, George cries again on the monkey bars as well. Then Daddy Pig gets stuck on the slide because he's too t

This one, SpongeBob gets fired from the Krusty Krab just because to save a SCRATCH amount of money (a nickel), and Mr. Krabs treats Squidward as the one to make the Krabby Patties, even though he was SLEEPING on the job. He then offers to work for free, but a illegal random law conveniently makes it unavoidable.
Then, he comes across four random restaurants and guess what he makes? Knock-off Krabby Patties using their ingredients and get fired from all four of them! And then it becomes a chaotic tug-of-war between the four guys until it's "Krabby Patty to the rescue!"
Anyway, this Krabby Patty guy rescues SpongeBob and escorts him back to the Krusty Krab. We then find out that this guy was Squidward in disguise. Squidward even admits it was a BAD idea fo

Okay, these ads are sometimes on YouTube, but they are LOT often on this site, sometimes even on TV, here's what they do, they say something like "what's a pack of smokes cost?" and then some weird things happen. Okay, first of all, we get that already. For a professional ad, you should be talking about that in a more professional matter, like what does smoking do to you and what happens to your body when it does that, not just improving nonsense, like wolves, tentacles and human USBs!

On a side note, here's the common ad on DeviantArt, which is why it also is nicknamed "VyleDelivery" on the title, it's some delivery box with uncanny materials from you know, smoking and stuff. That's it.

The issue here, is that it's WAY too vague when it comes to serious topics. If you're talking about a serious topic, don't just improv stuff, just explain it what the causes and effects would be and how it would affect us, the community, or whatever as a whole, and that's the problem, with the Real Cost ads. End of story.

Ernaut woke up for the the morning. When he woke up today, he realized that he was on quite a thrill recently, and that thrill is only going up the hill the further he is going into his situation.

“Good morning Ernaut. Hope you had a good sleep!” Genevie said, greeting Ernaut for his starting morning for today.

“Ernaut, I heard you unlocked the Tear of Heaven, and everyone is after you. I have already told Wally not to execute you, because I have appropriate evidence talking about the Tear of Heaven, but he still wants to kill you. Anyways, here’s the plan for the next mission. That is, we will explore the area around us to hunt some possible Chromas, so I can see your powers that you got from the Tear of Heaven.” Genevie said. Genevie already wanted to ensure that the powers of the Tear of Heaven are new, because from what Genevie knew from the archives, Aruku had already abandoned the Tear of Heaven because she felt like it caused her enough trouble, but was it really the same Tear of Heaven? Or was the Tear of Heaven Ernaut found an evolution from the older one?

“Yes. I had this Tear of Heaven on me for days. I had a vision that represented my powers yet to come. It’s sooner or later that you’ll have to witness my powers, but we cannot use those powers inside because as you know, it’s too dangerous.”

“Very well. Let’s come on outside, and we will showcase those powers so I can demonstrate what you’ve got from the Tear of Heaven.”

Ernaut and Genevie went outside from the estate, the estate that had that glowstone lamp, and the same place where Ernaut took refuge to get away from the mob yesterday. Genevie had a goal, and that goal was to see what the Tear of Heaven was capable for.

“So Ernaut, we’re going to test your powers right here. This is enough space for us to work and test those powers. I believe you have got what it takes to represent me your powers from the Tear of Heaven.” Genevie said.

“The only powers I know are the Spirit Needle, which lets me lock on targets and fire magic missiles, and the Spirit Fist, which lets me fight using magic fists that mimic my hands. I think I should test it on that tree over there.” Ernaut said, pointing at the dead tree in sight.

“Okay, so which one are you doing again for that dead tree?”

“I’m going for the Spirit Needle. Watch this.” Ernaut locked onto the dead tree and fired an magic needle that damaged the dead tree.

“Whoa, this is some new powers from the Tear of Heaven. In fact, when Aruku got ahold of the Tear of Heaven, she wasn’t able to even unlock it, because I believe this was an evolved version. The only times the Tear of Heaven did in fact talk was in the Comet crash site where Aruku destroyed the dark and light Totems, but the theory is, we barely had any effect from the Totems, which were said to hold balance on Teya. I don’t know if they were created by the Shades. Shades, if you have forgotten, were ghosts that originated from the Crimson Shore when the Comet destroyed it. They are in fact associated with the Comet as one of its major minions, but even though Aruku already defeated them, it has been noted that if these nightmares and dark omens were to continue; they’d reincarnate themselves while finding new ways to survive, which explains the Chromas. The Chromas, as you know are new incarnations of Shades. They are in fact their successors.” As Genevie was talking, a Chroma was forming behind her, and was approaching her without her being aware.

“Genevie, behind you!” Ernaut said, pointing the Chroma behind her.

“Oh, there is?” Genevie used a dodge-step to evade the Chroma, with Ernaut getting ready to fight it using his Spirit Fist.

“Take this, and that! If you could do a better day, do it!” Ernaut voiced, as he used his Spirit Fist to do his strikes against the Chroma and dispelling it.

“Whoa, was that the Spirit Fist? It looked like it because you were using your hands, and not any ranged attacks.”

“Yes. That was my Spirit Fist. I developed that using the ability to channel my anger, which is what I learned to get revenge on the Chromas when the house of destroyed. I learned the Spirit Needle from the way of being able to hit my targets that would be impractical on melee, such as the venomous mice I had to deal with. See. I have more powers, but these would be learned more often in my journey.”

“Very well, I have gotten everything I wanted. Now come back inside. I want to work on a plan with you. This plan, would give you an opportunity to head east, because isn’t that the goal you wanted? Go east and solve the mission where you fight against the Comet?”

“Yes, that’s what the Tear of Heaven wanted. In fact, I am a good samaritan to the community, but I got kind of stepped down by the people, because they thought the Tear of Heaven was an weapon of witchcraft. As you know, they hate witchcraft and all that unique stuff, and they often times do not mix well with non-Nexusian culture, and that Tear of Heaven is non-Nexusian for example. The challenge is, I have to learn how to adapt to different people’s reactions, because sooner or later, I’m going to have to handle with people that mostly do not like my goals, and some that may support my goals, but so far, Janice and you, you are the only people in the Nexus that support non-Nexusian cultures.”

Ernaut and Genevie went back to the estate that Genevie always owned. Genevie wanted to get out an important scroll to read from her collection. Genevie felt like she was interested on giving Ernaut some important clues.

“Ernaut, I want you to know, a famous monument from the east; the Gems of Power. The Gems of Power was an monument from east which represented balance and hope, as the 7 gems of power represented the colors of the elements These were the eastern region’s only famous monument. It was also rebuilt by Aruku to regain fame to herself and the Hawk Tribe.”

“I understand. So, how would I know what the Gems of Power look like?”

“I don’t know, some gems that are in rainbow colors? The Gems of Power were no ordinary gems, they were artifacts that represented different colors and different symbolism, as marked on them. It’s a tale that has just begun, and I’m only telling important facts about the eastern region of Teya.”

“I understand the Gems of Power, and now do you know anything about the Totems?”

“Now, what you’ll actually assume from the Totems is that they are just totem poles that represent a group of people or even a tribe, but that’s incorrect. What Totems actually are, they are coin shaped relics that represent different animals. Legend spread across there is that there is a World Seal that brought balance and life upon the world, but because we are too far from that legend, we never knew or even cared about the Totems or even the World Seal. In fact, we never even cared about non-Nexusian culture in the past, unless if it was a real threat such as actual evidence or an approaching entity that wanted to hurt us. Ultimately, when our founder Arthur Hope founded the Nexus over a 100 years ago, he wanted us to work hard and understand each others’ motives, and care about the inside world. That was correct, because as you know, we live on different sides of the world, and their habit was; if it’s too far or doesn’t even pose a threat; it doesn’t even matter to them at all.”

“Thank you. So, what else do you want to do today? Today’s kind of too early to call it a day.”

“In fact, I have a mission for you, but we are going to work this together. We’re going to plan an investigation of that old temple which I think you’ve encountered while being chased by that mob yesterday. There’s something which I want to investigate over there. Did you see a Chroma over there?”

“Yes. Yes I did. I defeated that one already. What do you want to investigate over there?”

“I want to check for that one diary which was left in the temple. Something tells me you’re not alone in the Chroma issue that roams around here. Did you see any other Chromas attack anyone aside from that mob?”

“No. Never seen any Chromas aside from the chase.”

“Okay. We are going to this temple, so I can do some sort of investigation of what happened over there.”

The two made their way back to the abandoned temple, the place that Ernaut temporary stopped while on the chase from the mob yesterday. Upon getting to the temple, it looked kind of run-down and ruined to Genevie.

“Yeah, this temple looks really old, I mean really old. Nobody’s been living here or using this place for months.” Genevie thought, upon coming down the abandoned temple. The area where the mob confronted the Chroma; no one was even there at all.

“Well then, let’s go inside and get that diary. I was sidetracked by the Chroma and the mob, so I was only able to investigate the temple only for a while, but I was able to read the diary that you were talking about. From what I remember, the diary was referring to the Chromas, and that there was nothing to do to even stop it.  

“This diary! Ah yes! This was that one note that represented victims of the Chromas! It seems like the Chromas are taking advantage of dark areas and shadows to represent their ability as the ghosts, and these ghosts are here to represent a nightmare taking the evil within them!” Genevie pointed out.

“Oh, so what else could we do about it?”

“It seems like they are hunting down those that have those drastic nightmares. The worser the nightmare gets, the more likely they are bound to get attacked by the Chromas. Your parents likely had nightmares as well, which made them good candidates for the Chromas. If you had forgotten, those Chromas are known to replace the older version of the dream ghost; known as the Shades. Those guys at Castlemore seem to have decent dreams of taking your head and hunting you down for an very high salary, which represents hope and ambition for them, but nightmares represent tragedy, agony, and illness.”

“Okay, so what can I do about it? I’ve fought against several Chromas, and it seems like the least I can do to try and protect myself, is think of happy dreams, healthy omens, and visions like that. That’s all I know that doesn’t attract those Chromas.”

“Nothing we can do about it here. The only thing we can find those Chromas is the eastern region, into the Comet, because as you know, some things cannot be done here and can only be done in specific locations.”

“Genevie, now we now know that there are more victims of the Chromas aside from this parents. Can you at least heed this warning to the...oh nevermind. They’ll never believe that. There isn’t enough proper evidence to come up with an believability, so I don’t think telling this to Wally is going to help either. If you want Wally or those people at Castlemore to believe in you, you need proper evidence and proof enough for them to even care about it.”

“I understand...should we head on down to Darum Forest to look for some berries that I need for an important project that I am working on? Right now, I think with the Chroma situation, I need you to come with me.”

“I thought your house was in Darum Forest, not right out in the open prairie. That’s what Janice told me.”

“Allegedly, I don’t live in Darum Forest, but I live near it. I don’t live inside forests because they’re too dark and too closed in, making it difficult for me to even find sunlight. In fact, Darum Forest is dangerous for even an commoner to go in without a proper lighting tool, because there are things like bears and other predators you have to look out for. In fact, Darum Forest is home to a lot of species, plants, all that important stuff, but you have to be careful when we reach Darum Forest.”

“Alright then. I was just curious from that fact.I think this project will involve you creating a brew that would help me throughout this journey or something similar?”

“My goal for this brew is to help others in need. This brew would be able to cure most diseases and relieve of anyone of a stressful day. I received a message today about someone who is in a disease, and that various medicines they’ve tried have not worked at all. They wanted to commission me to create a special kind of medicine for them. Some other group of citizens on this island needs our help. I’ll give you a new hood so they won’t know that it’s you, you the wanted person in Castlemore.”

“Great plan. So, what does the hood look like?” Ernaut was curious, what was the plan Genevie was going to use to hide his identity from any citizens that would hunt him down?

“This is the hood I’m going to give you. It stretches out from your head to your legs, so you don’t have to worry about them knowing your main uniform. You wear a white shirt, black pants and black shoes right for your main attire?”

“Yes, I do wear them. It represents myself being an citizen of royalty. In fact, I would love to try that new hood on!”

Ernaut put on the hood that Genevie had in her hands. It looked to be red and white, which were also the colors of the Nexus flag, and even had Genevie’s own signature on the front of it! Upon putting it on. Ernaut felt a sense of difference in him, he felt unlike his older self anymore.

“Alright, I think this should work right now. Let’s go and help citizens in need!! Oh, and here’s a present for you. You’ll need it.”  Genevie lent Ernaut a butterfly knife with an emerald blade and diamond hilt.

“What are you giving this for? Don’t you know I already have powers from the Tear of Heaven that could do something more powerful and effective than this?” Ernaut looked kind of questionable in his face, in response to the unlikely weapon that Genevie gave to him.

“Keep in mind; there are times where it’s a good time to have the Tear of Heaven’s powers unleashed, and times where your not allowed to. If you dare unleash those powers in public, they’ll often times think you’re being possessed of unidentified witchcraft, or should I say the evil follower of Aruku?”

“I understand. Sometimes, we have to understand that we are ourselves, and often times, we have to rely on ourselves and our techniques to do the job, especially when it involves ascending into the bigger challenges.”

“Alright then, let’s head into Darum Forest and get ourselves some ingredients to make our medicine.”  

Ernaut and Genevie set out north from the estate towards Darum Forest, where Genevie wanted to look for the right ingredients to make a medicine for a rural village.

“Alright, here we are at Darum Forest. So, what we need to get for our medicine is. 3 blueberries, 5 wildberries, 7 nightberries and a fragrance of amber. We’re going to have to search all across the forest  This is probably your first major task in your life. We are going to represent our good samaritan by showing what it means to be able to help out people a lot. After all, it’s important to be able to be a good helper in faith for townspeople. I heard you’ve been doing that for almost like months in Castlemore before you found the Tear of Heaven or even heard of Aruku, so , there’s no time to waste.”

Ernaut and Genevie took off on a walk across Darum Forest. There was the sound of birds chirping, some sounds of animals, and even insects as well. They have been on the lookout for any berries to put onto Genevie’s pouch she’d been carrying on her shoulder, which she would use to hold important ingredients or items. From that walk, they managed to find blueberries and wildberries, just what is needed, but the nightberries, can only be found in dark areas as they’re only known to grow at night.

“So, what are we going to do now? Nightberries grow at night, and I don’t even know where to even get a fragrance of amber. Do you have anywhere to go?”


“Ahh yes! Nightberries and a fragrance of amber. We got the blueberries and wildberries in Darum Forest. Now, In this area is a cave nicknamed Flora Cave. Here, you would find nightberries and that fragrance of amber we were in fact looking for. Come on, we got a job to do!”

They both went into the cave, looking for the nightberries, but then upon taking a few steps, they heard a roar. Was that, an wild animal on the loose?

“Hey, get your butterfly knife ready, and get ready to hunt down what lies ahead of us!" Genevie warned by the sound of an animal inside the cave.

“Here I go!” Ernaut said, readying his butterfly knife for the first animal that he’d hunt for real; a grizzly bear. Upon steadying his knife towards his target, Ernaut had to focus on the bear’s motion, it’s reflexes and of course, it’s abilities. The bear had some claws for it’s attacking ability, and Ernaut had to be aware of that as well.

“Steady, steady, steady, now execute!” Ernaut charged his knife towards the bear to unleash a heavy slash on it’s arm.”

“Looks like you blew it on his arm! Now he’s slowing down! Finish him!” Genevie exclaimed, trying to ensure that Ernaut is ambitioned to win the battle.

Ernaut, with all of his grit held both hands on the knife, and then with great force made one heavy slash through the grizzly bear, killing it in the process.

“Did you, did you do it?” Genevie was surprised on the strike.

“This is probably the first time I ever have to kill an wild animal, but yes. I did. This is not something we do for killing our own time, this is something we do for you know, defense and the important facts. I killed that bear because it posed a threat to us, now that’s cleared up, so let’s go.” Ernaut said.

“Ernaut, I need to clean up this emerald butterfly knife. I got a bottle of spring water which I need to use to clean this up. That knife is going to make us look like we killed somebody with it.” Genevie took out a bottle of spring water from her bag and poured some of the water onto the knife Ernaut had, washing off the blood on it.

“There you go, I think this should work for now. This would possibly hide any traces that we killed something, but that bear is something hunters would basically hunt as game.”

“Alright, so let’s get back to the main task right now. We were looking for nightberries and an fragrance of amber in this cave. We have to scout the walls and the floors of this cave to find them. We have a job to do, and that’s important for us. That’s what we do, care for others in need.”

Ernaut and Genevie scouted with their eyes around the cavern walls, the floors, and the surroundings. It was important to not miss anything that could be interesting in their sights. They continued walking through the cavern until what the could find some sort of orange flower with some sort of orange sap from it.

“Is this the fragrance of amber that we need?” Ernaut asked.

“Yes, I think that should be it. I also collected the nightberries from those plants in the cavern’s grass. As you know, there is potential for caves to have grass or even habitats as well biologically.” Genevie asked.

Genevie grabbed the orange flower which had the fragrance of amber so she can use it to make the medicine needed.

“I think we’re done. We need to report back and make the medicine!” Genevie said.

Ernaut and Genevie walked back to the witch’s house, ready to make the medicine. The sun was setting for a bit, Ernaut and Genevie have had their first day together so far in the action.

“Now, what I need to do here is to use these ingredients into the cauldron, and then stir them up to make a brew, and that brew would simply be our medicine for those in need. We did well today, we hunted a bear, explored a bit of this island called Aurora. As you know, in the Nexus, this island is called Aurora. We have other islands in the Nexus such as Evergrove which is south of here, and Nexus Capital west of here. We have only three islands in the Nexus so far. Anyways, you can stay here while I go deliver the medicine. If you’re wondering where I’m delivering this medicine, it’s a medicine I’m delivering to a town called Auroburg, said to be where Queen Aurora discovered Aurora and founded her own city. Don’t come with me, because I think Wally also told Auroburg to hunt you down as well. I’ll be taking one of my Guardians with me to ensure I get the medicine there and back safety. Then, the doctors and healers there can work on finalizing the medicine and do the rest.” Genevie said.

“Okay Genevie, I can stay here. I’m going to go upstairs into my bed.” Ernaut said while walking upstairs to the bedroom.

As soon as Genevie left the room with the potion containing the medicine that they made from the brew, Ernaut felt like he wanted some time alone to talk with Karin.

“What a day it has been for you. You and Genevie have been getting along very well.” Karin said.

“Yes, we have been getting along. Keep in mind, this is only the beginning of things. Since I have to move from island to island to make my way east, which is going to take some serious work. I probably expected you to ask, why did I get to keep a emerald knife for safety when in reality I could just use your powers? Allegedly, Wally passes you off as witchcraft, and speaking of that, that kind of witchcraft is impossible to believe, there’s no way to even craft a reasonable thesis that is believable because you originated from elsewhere outside the Nexus!

“I see… Does this mean you still want to continue your quest, even if it means relying on your own skills for a bit?”

“Yes. My first goal is to continue this life with Genevie until I can find my way to the other island.”

“Okay, so what do you want me to do? I have granted you increased senses of danger and awareness.”

“Until then, it’s best for you to remind in stasis, since I am currently still on the run from Wally, Shion, and those people who want my head. Genevie’s okay since she’s an authorized witch who uses witchcraft that is at least believable! Genevie was my only person I can trust while everyone else opposes me. My parents are gone, Janice is arrested for keeping me in, who else could I rely on? I guess is you, myself then when I’m out of the Nexus.”

“I understand… Well then, what are you planning for tomorrow? Another day of adventuring with Genevie instead of just continuing my quest of having you travel east and destroy the Comet and those Chromas?”

“You know I can only do the quest east is how to actually get there. First, I have to leave the island of Aurora and swing by island to island until I can find a proper travel method. I don’t know what’s it going to be. In fact, getting out of this island isn’t going to be easy. I have to find something that can take me to other islands, whether it be ships to other islands or something like that, but the challenge is being able to get into one. Since I’m a fugitive in witchcraft, I’m staying here with Genevie until I can find a way out of here. As for the Chromas, I don’t know how they got here though, I guess they hunt down those with the nightmares, because isn’t that what you also said about the Shades, right?”

“I proclaim that it’s a newborn threat that’s emerging from the Comet. Oh, you’re looking tired, do you want to go to sleep and end this conversation between us?”

“Yes, It’s been a day of walking around for a bit.” Ernaut yawned.

Nearly 3 quarters of an hour passed, and Genevie had returned back to the bedroom.

“I guess he went to sleep then. I’ll go to sleep. Night Ernaut! Genevie said, going to sleep as well.
