Chapter 114 A Lesson in Quatum Physics
With a smile on her face, Eanaj, who was wearing a low cut black satin gown, with her usual curly red hair straightened, watched the crowd scramble to their tables, before she spoke again.
"Thank you for quickly finding your seats. I know everyone's eager to eat, drink, and party, but before that these dinners are also a time for all of us to get together and learn about the island more. Located in the middle of the Azlunta ocean, and above it, Azula is a treacherous place to get to, but it is a safe haven for all Sparks. It has beautiful gardens, spires, and egg jeweled shaped buildings that house different books and pictures depicting legends about Htrea, and m

Chapter 115 Reminiscent Sparks
Seas of people filed toward the buffet and the bar to grab food and drinks, filling the room with incoherent chatter again, and we contributed to it.
We talked about the science behind the island and how the explanation has gotten more detailed since Felix, Ken, Mark, Wade, Molly, and Yami were here. Even Snake, who had been here just last year, felt like things were explained better.
Talking about the island got us on the subject of how we all made it here, of course.
Entoan and Dlive had peaceful train rides. Their first train took them through a rain forest type biome, where they saw amazing plants and animals as there train zipped by. Entoan told us that one time the train stopped to pick up more passengers at a stop that was surrounded by Dryads. Which are beautiful lush trees shaped like people, said to be the very spirits of the rainforest, protecting it and helping it grow.

Chapter 112 Feonogamy
As we followed him, Devonte explained to us that he'd have to take 50 measurements after we picked out what style we wanted the suit to be, then we could move on to fabrics and the actual making of the suit.
The room he lead us to was really plain juxtaposed to the lavish tux shop we were just in, but everything seemed like a tailor worked in here.
Measuring tape, fabric, and pin cushions were everywhere, along with a big three way mirror up against a wall with a small step stool in front of it.
All three of us sat down at Devonte's work bench to discuss what we wanted the suit to look like.
I honestly didn't want to be apart of the decision making, but Devonte was really adamant about getting both of our opinions, and he listened closely to all of them.
When we were finished coming up with wh

Chapter 113 The Meet and Greet
"You ready?" I asked as I knocked on the bathroom door.
"Will you love birds hurry up and just show each other your outfits already, we leave soon!" Scott scolded.
"You look very nice in that suit Snake got you, Scott." I said with a wink, completely ignoring what he just said.
"Shut up! You look good too in... What the hell are you wearing Pewds?" He questioned as he face palmed.
"Shhh! Cry doesn't know yet."
"Doesn't know what? I wanna see, I'm ready!" Cry impatiently informed from the bathroom.
"OK, OK, but close your eyes! I want to see you first." I demanded.
"Open the door then!"
Without another word I obeyed, a smile growing on my face as the door creaked open to reveal him.
It was a struggle to buy him this tux, it was even a struggle to make him wear it, but now, the fruits of my labor.
"Wow." I whispered.
Cry's hair was nicely gelled back, not a hair out of place. The deep red velvet suit j

Chapter 110 The Discussion
After chilling at the viewing window for a while, we all found ourselves sitting around the circle dining room table. Going around clock wise it was Mark, Yami, Mary, Ken, Felix, Me, Scott, Snake, Molly, and Wade.
I'm sure Mark wanted to do the viewing thing first to get everyone relaxed, and it did work. But now we're all anxious to hear what they needed to talk about.
Yami placed his hand on top of Mark's and nodded his head to him, like they were communicating telepathically.
Even though we like using our powers on each other, it doesn't take an ability like Felix's to know what your partner is thinking or feeling, and it definitely doesn't take one like mine to calm them down just by saying a few words.
"It'll be alright, Mawk." Gently said Aaron as he rubbed his thumb over Mark's hand.

Chapter 111 Dropping Fat Stacks
Congested, loud, and way too artificially bright, our first stop on our tour around the hotel was the casino.
It wasn't huge, but it took up a good bit of the hotels front entrance, with different slot machines and table games littering the red carpeted floor.
Why is there even a casino here?
"Give em a good blow for me Yamibaby!" Mark yelled as he reached his hand out to Yami, who gladly blew on the red dice that were in them, "Come on!!!"
"You better roll a 7 you bitch! Daddy needs 10 million subscribers!" Ken shouted.
See, you don't even actually have to bet real money. I don't think you can, there's no way for them to pay you if you win. We are on an island that's running only by donations. The workers here, besides th

Chapter 108 The Morning After
Against my own willpower, I started waking up.
"Pee! I have to pee." I grumbled as I rolled over to cuddle up to Pewds, "Open your mouth babe, I don't feel like getting up."
I clawed at the empty space next to me, finally opening my eyes to let out a loud groan.
"Ugh! You always wake up so early!" I yelled to the empty room.
With a yawn I rolled out of bed and walked to the master bathroom.
I guess I don't get a morning cuddle.
After taking a wicked piss, I padded my way down the hallway to our living room, seeing that the front door was cracked opened.
"You just don't know how good it was for me. My hoe was in tip-top shape, heh. You looked so cute this morning too, all wrapped up under me, I almost couldn't get out of bed. I didn't want to leave you, but papa needed his morning vape and to clean up

Chapter 105 Your Eyes In the Moons Lights
Cry lead me around the in-ground pool in the back yard, to a cozy hot tub that had a wooden awning over it, and on each corner of the tub were fake candles.
Throwing his clothes off, minus his black briefs, and clapping his hands, Cry slowly climbed into the hot tub. The candles lit up at the sound of his clapping, illuminating the bubbling water.
"The water's great." He said with a smile, extending a hand to me.
I shrugged my shoulders and took off my clothes, minus my blue plaid boxers, laying them down on the cement ground next to his, before I allowed him to help me into the hot water, slowly slipping down one side of the tub, while he sat on the other.
"Ooh, this water's toasty. Can't believe you set this up." I said as I jumped a little from a jet hitting me in the b

Chapter 104 Mr. Housewife
After saying bye to Gabi, Rayne, and Andy, and having more brownies dumped on me, I finally made my way home.
On the way I couldn't stop thinking about Cry. We haven't spent this much time apart from each other in a while.
We both love alone time and our personal space, but he's usually just in the next room. I weirdly miss him.
It's probably because I just got done pouring my heart out, and my instinct is to go cuddle with Cry right after I do something like that.
Ugh, when did I become such a bitch?
If I tell Cry this, he'll probably just end up saying I'm his bitch, so it's ok.
I rolled my eyes at my own thought process as I finally reached our house. It didn't feel like I was gone that long, but the sun was already setting

Chapter 103 Not Your Average Therapist
I took a deep breath to calm myself. I knew why I was here, what we'd be talking about, so there's no reason for me to get nervous or emotional.
Just have to be calm and collected.
"So, Eanaj told you about my friend, Stephano?" I questioned, watching Gabi nod his head yes, "Well, he was an ex. We dated some when we were younger. We weren't good for each other though. Our relationship became abusive, so we finally broke up for good, even though he was still obsessed with me. When I went on my journey the first time and found someone, he got angry. But he isn't the only terrible one. I uh, I broke a promise with him and when he got mad over it, I was scared, so I used and abused my ability on him. I'm a mind reader and an illusionist, but I can also take away people's memory and store them in a specially modified headset I usual wea

Chapter 100 Domestic Lives
"Who's my little whipped bitch, washing all the dishes? It's Cry, it's Cry, Cry, Cry, Cry Cry!" I singsonged as I entered our kitchen, my camcorder aimed at his back, "This is for prosperity, future Felix. Remember this day as the day your partner actually decided to clean of his own volition. Everything's been great since the Ferris Wheel talk a couple days ago, he isn't trying to make you happy or trying to get your forgiveness or anything! He's, just, cleaning!"
"Shut up, you little butthole! I can clean some too!" Cry scolded as he placed a clean dish on the black dish rack next to him.
I came up behind Cry and wrapped one arm around his waist as I rested my chin on his shoulder, bringing the camcorder around to get both of us in the shot.
"He's just cranky cause he's so whippe

Chapter 101 All We Needed Was Closure
'What is taking him so long?' I asked myself as I threw some miscellaneous junk into our cart.
I should just go to the front office and tell them I lost my child. Heh, he'd be so pissed at me.
As soon as I went to run straight to the customer service desk, I ran right into my pale blondie.
"There you are! You had me worried sick!" I dramatically said, "What took you so long?"
Felix just shrugged his shoulders, letting out a little chuckle, "Heh, just looking around, ran into someone. Uh, you ready to go?"
"Uh, yea, yea sure. Lets go, you still going swimming?" I questioned as he looped a finger around the front end of the metal cart, leading me toward a self-check out aisle.
"Of course. I could use some relaxation with you and the guys." He said with a bright smile.
My heart skipped several beats as I tried to advert my

Chapter 98 Not so Worry Free
The bonfire went on for a while. All of us met up for a bit, played some games, and just chilled, it was pretty enjoyable and I was able to get through it without any problems.
But of course I could only take so much, so after a bit of dicking around, I was ready to leave.
Even though I insisted on him staying, Felix of course went home with me and we passed out as soon as we got in bed.
The next morning I felt like I was floating on a cloud.
"Forgot what sleeping on a mattress felt like. S'good! S'really good, babe." I groggily said, rolling over to the body that should have been next to me, but all that collided with my body was fluffy pillows, "Babe?"
I rubbed my eyes and grabbed my glasses, looking at the blue projection screen that was on the nightstand next to me. The projection read 9:45 am.
Ugh! I bet Felix has been up since

Chapter 99 We Don't Give A Fuck
A gigantic white Ferris Wheel towered over Pewdie and I.
"I... I think I'm afraid of heights now." I mumbled.
"This was your idea! Now come on, it's our turn." He ordered, dragging me into the available opened cabin.
"Please keep your arms, legs, and all loose articles in the cabin at all times, and enjoy your ride on the world's tallest Ferris Wheel." The operator unenthusiastically said to us as they shut the door.
All the cabins on the Ferris Wheel were pretty big and spacious. Pewds and I sat on opposite sides of the white enclosed cabin, glancing out the windows as the ride slowly started.
"I haven't been on a Ferris Wheel in awhile, I love them." Felix informed.
"Really? My niece loves them too." I said as the ride came to a halt, placing us leveled with the second floor, "She'd always drag me on them."
"That's cute. I have to get on one

Just walk. Just keep walking.
This isn't my first time in a crowded place, just walk. No one's watching you, no one even knows you're here.
I tried to keep myself calm as we were bounced around from person to person, only feeling relief when Pewdie sensed I was freaking a bit and grabbed my hand, holding it firmly as we walked away from the crowds and up against a wall, to join our friends.
"There you fucks are. What took so long?"
Another relief, Jund's voice.
"Not all of us want to arrive 2 hours before the thing even begins." I sassed, feeling myself calm down again.
"Well I've been saving this seat for you, Mark. I'll go and get more chairs for you guys in a second." Wade said, smiling from ear to ear.
"For me??" Mark quizzed, looking at Yami, "You can sit, I'll wai

Chapter 96 What You Do When You're In love
After Cry and I finished our bath together, we laid out on the black satin covers of our bed. And for a couple hours all we did was talk. Felt like we hadn't had a deep chill talking session since back on the train.
We talked about our first date, the amazing creatures we got to see and meet on our journey, the people back at home we miss. We discussed living arrangements, our pets and AHI's, what financial struggles we could face, just really normal things for a new serious couple.
I think that's what we needed, something normal. Something we could both wrap our heads around and think analytically about, instead of emotionally, if only for that short moment, and then of course after the discussions we ended up in the little game room attached to our bedroom's closet.

Chapter 95 Home Sweet Anxiety
We exited the cars and stepped onto a cement sidewalk that contrasted the golden brick street, while we watched one of the hover cars zoom off.
In front of us and behind us on both sides of the street, were rows of manicured lawns and cement pathways lined with pretty little flowers, leading to the front porch of modest homes.
Every single house on the block looked identical. They all were one story tall, had a nice sized porch with a wooden swing hanging from the ceiling, nice big curtained windows, and all of the homes were made out of white limestone. Which was a very pretty choice, because at night, I'm pretty sure limestone glows, so every house will probably end up being fluorescent.
"So, some of you will be staying on this block, other's a block or two down, and after we get confi

Chapter 94 The Terrible Twosome
"Ok, ok, ugh! Trying not to be a whiny little bitch right now! Ok, come on guys, I'm pretty sure the check in building is over to the right." Mark stated as he lifted his glasses to wipe his eyes.
"Yes! The AHI's alert went off, so I paged the Douglas's and no answer! So I don't know if they picked up the new arrivals or not!" A familiar voice yelled, louder than everyone else walking in front of us, "Yes, I'm going to panic! Mother Karen will kill me if things don't go smoothly this year! You know that, boo."
We all stopped and looked to where the loud voice was coming from.
Walking toward us from a street that looked like there were rows of houses on it, were two women both moving their hands and arms around like they were signing to each other.
Both were short, but one had sho

Chapter 93 Welcome to The Golden Bridge
Slowly, as the days passed, everyone tried to go back to normal, but with Mark still unconscious, it was a slow trudge.
Though we did manage to crack a few jokes and some smiles here and there, I was still worried about Felix.
I... I don't know if he'll ever be the same.
Two long days of trying to move in stages.
The day of I cried my eyes out, next day I kept my distance, and now today? Today I'll engage with everyone, try and smile more so they aren't walking on eggshells around me.
That's how these things go right? The healing process? I just need a couple days.
Least that's what I thought, but I still can't sleep well, and when I do, I have nightmares. I barely want to close my eyes anymore.
I rolled over in my, our, sleeping bag and scooted over to the warm body next to me.
I never want to bother Cry, so I've been putting spa

Chapter 92 Cry, The Silent Rock
When Wade, Felix, and I finally landed in the blood soaked camp sight, the Chimera bodies were gone, Mark's body was in a small long bubble, and Stephano and Jennifer's bodies were laying next to each other.
Stephano had vines wrapped around his torso, probably Molly's doing, and a blanket covered Jennifer's whole body. Probably to hide their wounds.
"Hey guys, you're back." Mary said, walking over and wrapping her arms around Felix's neck.
"We dug up some uh, some graves." Jund said, "Molly and Snake did actually."
His voice was so horse and dry, I almost didn't recognize it.
"Yea, it was a bit hard, can't actually move dirt, but vines and Snake's make shift shovel from bark worked out well." Molly explained, trying her best to sound like she was just talking about digging in a garden.
