Isaiah S Reckoning

[07:47] <Yanmei> The same chair. The same room. The minutes ticked slowly by with Zhang Yanmei barely moving between them. -
[07:53] * Sept has joined #nervfrance3
[07:55] <Yanmei> A magazine lay open in her lap, unread. Aching exhaustion weighed down her limbs. The machines hooked up the Isaiah's bed played their symphony of beeps. For ten days straight, ever since the synching experiment, she had done the same thing, and yet he still remained asleep.
[08:05] <Minaplo> [And so he slept.-
[08:05] <Minaplo> [Doctor Stimms came in, and reported the same thing he had every day for the last ten- some brain activity, but not enough.-
[08:06] <Minaplo> [But eventually Yanmei would have some company. Someone would knock on the door to the observation room- Doctor Gabriel.]
[08:09] * Yanmei looked up sharply, blinking at him through the glass in obvious surprise. She smiled cordially and waved him in.
[08:10] <Minaplo> [He stepped in, looking tired and- nervous? On edge, perhaps. "… Hey."]
[08:12] <Yanmei> "Hi. She gestured to a spare empty seat. "I thought you went back to Europe. I hadn't seen you around, so I assumed…"
[08:12] <Minaplo> ["Yeah, uh… Yeah. I've been around. Just been, y'know. Getting my head together." He sat down. "Oh, I uh… I brought you something to eat. And drink."]
[08:14] <Yanmei> "Thank you. That's seriously thoughtful?"
[08:18] <Minaplo> ["Don't mention it." He said, sighing, looking down at Isaiah.-
[08:24] <Minaplo> ["If… Uh, you're in danger, at any time, Isha and I have put together a sort of, uh… Emergency kit somewhere, he'll show you where it is. If you need it."]
[08:27] <Yanmei> "Do you think I'll be in more danger soon, Dr. Gabriel?"
[08:27] <Minaplo> ["J-Just in case." He said, rubbing his hands together nervously.]
[08:33] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei joined him in looking down at Isaiah. "Something's going to happen. They were both really scared of something? Maybe that's why it's taking so long for him to wake up."
[08:33] <Minaplo> ["Something happening, huh."-
[08:34] <Minaplo> ["… Hey, Yanmei, I'm sorry." He said. "I've been an asshole. A-a big asshole to you a lot of the time. I drank and… Wasn't there for him, and you picked up the slack and more. I'm… Uh, yeah." He scratched the back of his neck. "I… I respect you. You're a good daughter-in-law."]
[08:42] <Yanmei> Would he have said something like that if something dangerous -wasn't- going to happen? "I've tried my best. I… sort of understood why you acted that way? So it's not like I hate you."
[08:44] <Minaplo> ["Maybe you should."-
[08:44] <Minaplo> ["… Hey, Yanmei. C-Can I have a moment with Isaiah? Just him and me? I have a few things I wanna say."]
[08:48] * Yanmei nodded and stood up. "I'll be just outside, okay?" And she went for the door.
[08:49] <Minaplo> ["Thanks."-
[08:50] <Minaplo> [Once Yanmei was outside the door, Dr. Gabriel took a deep breath and locked the door, wedging a chair under the handle for good measure. Then he turned back to Isaiah, taking two things out of his coat. The first thing was a small picture. Yanmei recognised it as the picture of Isaiah's mother that sat in Isaiah's wallet all the time; the other object was a gun.]
[08:57] * Yanmei stopped dead in her tracks at the barracade, confusion swarming her face. Then the picture came out. Then the -gun-. She swiveled back around fully with a cry, and pounded a fist against the glass that seperated them.
[09:07] <Minaplo> [He placed the gun down on a table next to Isaiah's head- and sat down.-
[09:07] <Minaplo> ["Wake up, son."-
[09:07] <Minaplo> [… And something miraculous happened. Isaiah turned his head. And his eyes opened.]
[09:10] * Yanmei …stopped. Her hand slid down the surface of the glass and returned to her side and she stared, not believing it at all.
[09:17] <Minaplo> ["…" Dr. Gabriel sighed, reaching out to ruffle Isaiah's hair. "Hey, little man. It's good to see you up."-
[09:17] <Minaplo> ["… I'm gonna make a prayer, alright? I haven't done that in a while. Haven't felt the need. Don't really know if God exists or not, but… I guess you'd have a better handle on that if I do."-
[09:18] <Minaplo> ["I'm Elijah Gabriel. I'm just a man. Just blood, and… Bone and sinew. I think I've messed up. I've messed up a whole lot."-
[09:19] <Minaplo> ["I uh… I wasn't supposed to do the things I did. I sold you. I sold my own soul for things. I'm sorry."-
[09:20] <Minaplo> ["I didn't mean to hurt anyone. I never wanted to make weapons. But I did. I made a lot of weapons. And many of those weapons hurt a lot of people."-
[09:21] <Minaplo> ["But I've hurt you a lot too. I know you're hurting now, and… I've been a big part of that. I've blamed you for a lot of things, hated you, when I should've been hating myself."-
[09:22] <Minaplo> ["It's a little too late, to… To take back a lot of the bad. But I want you to have a good life, little man. You're my son first and foremost, alright? D… Don't forget that." Tears were running down Dr. Gabriel's cheeks.-
[09:22] <Minaplo> ["You're gonna have a lot of shit to deal with. A-A lot of crap. People're gonna hurt you and you're gonna hurt some people. That's ok. You're my little man. It's ok."-
[09:23] <Minaplo> ["Just don't let anyone make you do anything, ok? I trust you. Do what you need to do. Don't- d-don't be turned aside from that."-
[09:23] <Minaplo> ["I'm sorry, little man." He took a deep breath. "I-I'm sorry, I… I need to do this. You'll understand in time."-
[09:23] <Minaplo> [He took the photograph of Isaiah's mother and ripped it in half.-
[09:24] <Minaplo> [Isaiah's eyes widened, and he jolted as though suddenly shocked.-
[09:24] <Minaplo> [And then Doctor Gabriel picked up the gun…-
[09:24] <Minaplo> [And held it to his own head.]
[09:30] * Yanmei opened her mouth to scream something, but it never made it out. The expression on her face twisted hard, and for an instant she was watching without seeing anything.
[09:34] <Minaplo> [Elijah smiled at his son one last time. "The Lord heard Elijah's cry, and the boy's soul returned to him, and he lived."-
[09:35] <Minaplo> [He pulled the trigger. The retort was deafening. Dr. Gabriel crumpled, falling to the left, a spray of blood misting into the air as he fell.]
[09:41] * Yanmei jerked away fast as red flecks patterned the glass in front of her. This time, she -did- scream, rushing for the door proper and fighting with it.
[09:42] <Minaplo> [But the door remained firmly locked. She'd have to force it if she could…-
[09:43] <Minaplo> [But Isaiah… Isaiah stared. His eyes were wide, so wide- and now they looked… Deranged, mad with desperate, aching -pain-. He scrambled out of the bed and onto the floor, his arms, trembling violently, wrapping around his father's body. "Dad… Dad… Dad, no, dad, please, please…."-
[09:43] <Minaplo> ["Pl…eaaase…"-
[09:43] <Minaplo> [Isaiah bowed his head- and then he began to scream. He began to -howl-, trying to bring voice to his pain somehow.-
[09:44] <Minaplo> [And far off, something answered his scream… With its own roar.]
[09:48] * Yanmei drew back a little, and slammed her shoulder into the door, trying to get it to open. All the while, she was muttering hoarsely to herself. "…saih, Isaiah, Dr. Gabriel…"
[09:54] <Minaplo> [The door burst open, the chair scattering away. Alarms began to sound, and a broadcast went through the Synfront. 'Alert! All hands to combat stations, priority one emergency situation. Evangelion berserk event. I repeat, Evangelion berserk event. Pilots to their units…'-
[09:55] <Minaplo> [Isaiah was rocking back and forth, howling in abject grief, clutching his father to him as tightly as he could.]
[09:56] <Yanmei> "Isaiah!" She approached, slowing down, completely ignoring the alarm. "Isaiah, look at me!"
[09:57] <Minaplo> [He didn't look up. He just continued to scream…]
[10:02] <Yanmei> She came to a halt, her head whirling. She braced herself and tried again, reaching for a shoulder. "Isaiah!"
[10:02] <Minaplo> [His skin was hot. So fiercely hot.-
[10:02] <Minaplo> [And his screaming… Stopped. He suddenly froze. He looked up at her.-
[10:02] <Minaplo> ["Yanmei."-
[10:03] <Minaplo> ["Yanmei. Listen to me."-
[10:03] <Minaplo> ["Get Lizzie. Get out of here."]
[10:04] <Yanmei> "What are you doing?! Isaiah, please!"
[10:05] <Minaplo> ["Get to EVA-08. Climb in. She'll take you." He said, getting to his feet. He looked towards the wall- one of the solid walls, not the observation one- and raised his hand.-
[10:06] <Minaplo> [The wall -exploded- outwards, struck by a bolt of incredible force, the debris hurling out and into a squad of Storm troopers. Two of them were knocked down. Isaiah threw out his other hand.-
[10:06] <Minaplo> [The remaining Troopers were visibly ripped in half, their screams dying in their throats.-
[10:06] <Minaplo> [Isaiah turned and began to head for the breach he made.]
[10:11] <Yanmei> "STOP!" She screamed after him, and made as if to chase him. "What will you do? Where are you going? Answer me!"
[10:12] <Minaplo> [Another squad of Stormtroopers ran towards them, opening fire. The bolts struck an AT Field harmlessly. With a violent wave of his hand, the air around them erupted with searing energy, killing the squad instantly.-
[10:13] <Minaplo> ["I'm going to destroy this place." Said Isaiah, his entire body vibrating with power born of implacable fury. "I'm going to kill Mary Caine."-
[10:13] <Minaplo> ["I am not her puppet."-
[10:13] <Minaplo> [He began to walk down the hall, every step he made setting the ground behind him aflame for a second.]
[10:19] <Yanmei> "I'll-" 'come with you' were the words that came next intuitively. Because if anyone deserved to die, it was definitely her, and because she couldn't stand to see him in this state. -
[10:22] <Yanmei> But - she watched the footsteps he left behind, all blood and fire and ash - what help could she possibly be to him? She wasn't armed. She couldn't even reach him! -
[10:24] <Yanmei> There was someone who else who probably could, though. She balled her hands into fists. "Don't die. Don't you die! And don't get trapped by her, you understand me?!"
[10:25] <Minaplo> [Isaiah turned to look back at her.-
[10:25] <Minaplo> ["I won't-"-
[10:25] <Minaplo> ["Stop! Please, stop!" Came a voice. A familiar one.-
[10:27] <Minaplo> [Blonde-haired Ayanami Juu was standing at the end of the hall, not yet in her plugsuit, looking horrified. Next to her was Strawberry-haired Roku. "Isaiah-kun, please…"-
[10:27] <Minaplo> ["Get out of my way."-
[10:27] <Minaplo> [The two sisters looked at each other- then both reached out, neutralizing him at the same time.-
[10:28] <Minaplo> [Isaiah reacted with unnatural speed. He viciously waved a hand at Roku, ensnaring her in an unseen whip of telekinetic force. He struck her against the wall- and the other- and the other, each time with more speed and fury. On the final slam, her body -broke-, snapping in half. She screeched in agony, slumping to the ground.-
[10:29] <Minaplo> [And then Isaiah was on Juu, slamming her into a wall, a spear of telekinetic force in his hand. With a single strike, Isaiah impaled Juu into the wall straight through her chest, forcing the air out of her lungs. The blood splattered across Isaiah's face.-
[10:30] <Minaplo> [She went limp.]
[10:35] <Yanmei> "ISAIAH!" Desperation trumped fear. She rushed forward, through the puddle of gore and debris left behind by the troopers. "They're our allies! Our friends! Don't you remember Rei?! Caine's an acceptable target, but them…?! What have you done?"
[10:36] <Minaplo> ["T-They were neutralizing me- it- it hurt!" He said, staring down at his own hands now. "No, I-I didn't do this! I didn't! Yanmei! Yanmei, I-"-
[10:36] <Minaplo> ["… I don't know why you're still here." He said suddenly, looking around. "I told you to grab Lizzie and go."]
[10:44] <Yanmei> "You're not him," she realized aloud, slightly dazed by it. Her eyes narrowed, slowly. "So I have no reason to listen to you? You're just trying to get rid of us!"
[10:48] <Minaplo> ["Yanmei." Said Isaiah, and even in this strange state he was still slightly desperate. "Please. I'm not going to die. I want to see you and Lizzie safe. I won't hurt the Simonides twins if I find them. You need to take yourself and Lizzie and go. Take… Isha? Take him with you. I-getoutoftheway-"-
[10:49] <Minaplo> [Yanmei was hurled down the hall, landing thirty metres away as the entire corridor around Isaiah was -ripped- apart, a huge force of squealing metal tearing through the area, concealing Isaiah with smoke and debris.]
[10:54] <Yanmei> It knocked the wind out of her. Just after she'd landed, she found it too difficult to move her arms and legs, but then she crawled to her feet at last, stumbling back toward the spot she'd left him. "Isaiah! It's not about dying! Bastard… you give him back!"
[10:55] <Minaplo> [But Isaiah was…-
[10:55] <Minaplo> [An E-Destroyer had slammed through the roof, a huge sword in its hand. It had brought this down upon him in a strike that'd rip a person easily in half.-
[10:55] <Minaplo> [Isaiah had caught the blade on his AT Field, inches from his face. He held his hand up, keeping it in place-
[10:56] <Minaplo> [Then clenched his hand into a fist. The E-Destroyer shredded itself as it imploded, ripping apart- the pilot was almost certainly dead, impaled by a million spikes of metal.-
[10:57] <Minaplo> ["Yanmei. Yanmei, -please- go! If this keeps up you're going to get hurt, and then-"-
[10:57] <Minaplo> ["And then I won't have a reason to live anymore. Please…"]
[11:04] <Yanmei> "You're the one who started this! You can end it too. C'mon, please…" She stumbled clumsily around a giant hunk of drywall. "Is this what your pacifistic father wanted?"
[11:06] <Minaplo> ["My father wanted me to live."-
[11:06] <Minaplo> [Isaiah turned around to face Yanmei. "If I don't do this, Yanmei, then in a few weeks he will be Caine's slave."-
[11:07] <Minaplo> ["Do you intend to stop me from freeing my father from that fate?"]
[11:11] <Yanmei> "If you were the one doing it, I wouldn't stop you. But it's not you, is it?! You're… what's driving you? Is it 08? What is it?"
[11:12] <Minaplo> [Isaiah turned, and walked towards her. He didn't stop- he pressed himself against her, kissing her deeply, closing his eyes.]
[11:15] * Oat has joined #nervfrance3
[11:15] * Raphael has quit IRC (Quit: )
[11:18] * Yanmei …kissed back. Her eyes filled with tears, and she quickly shut them. When the parted, she held a hand over her face, and heaved a deep, shuddering breath. "God… No one ever tells me anything. I don't know…"
[11:24] <Minaplo> ["No one told me anything either." He stroked her cheek.]
[11:33] <Yanmei> "I'll retreat from the danger zone for now," she whispered. But it wasn't over? She could at least make sure that Lizzie and Isha were safe, and in the meantime…
[11:39] <Minaplo> [He nodded, smiling. "I love you. Find Lizzie. Get out of here."]
[11:43] * Yanmei backed away a few steps before turning fully and making a dash for it. "I love you!"
[11:44] <Minaplo> [And Isaiah smiled, and turned, and went in the other direction. He was soon out of sight.-
[11:44] <Minaplo> [Before long, Yanmei would find herself back at the medical area… And run into Isha. Lizzie was next to him, crying and looking terrified.]
[11:46] <Yanmei> "Isha!" She leaned against a wall, panting. "Evacuate. You have to take Lizzie and get out of here!"
[11:49] <Minaplo> ["The exits are sealed. There's nowhere to evacuate to!" He said. He was keeping his calm, despite the chaos around him. He held a backpack out to Yanmei. "But Dr. Gabriel gave me this to give to you. I think he knew something was coming."]
[11:52] <Yanmei> "You know this place better than I do?" She grabbed one of the backpack's straps. "Is there a safe place to go to? A bunker? He's on his way to Caine right now."
[11:53] <Minaplo> ["I-"-
[11:54] <Minaplo> [The ground shook, and the roof buckled. Or rather, completely gave in. They were showered with powder, small rocks and bits of metal, giving them small cuts.-
[11:54] <Minaplo> [When the dust cleared, EVA-08 was standing above them, staring down at Yanmei.]
[11:59] * Yanmei gripped the bag tightly, staring back up at the Eva. It came to her because she was taking so long…? -
[12:01] * Oat has quit IRC (Ping timeout)
[12:02] <Yanmei> She shot a quick look at Lizzie and Isha. "There's something I have to do."
[12:03] <Minaplo> ["Wh-what is it?"-
[12:03] <Minaplo> [Lizzie was hiding behind Isha completely now, crying at the sight of the monstrous Eva.-
[12:04] <Minaplo> [EVA-08 smashed through the floor, lowering itself down until it was relatively eye-level with Yanmei. Then, pushing its head forward, it slid its Entry Plug out- the hatch flipped open.]
[12:05] <Yanmei> "I need help to reach him. I can't do it alone." She opened her bag and went through it quickly to see what Gabriel had left her. Any extra weapons that she could hand off to Isha?
[12:07] <Minaplo> [A pistol.]
[12:08] <Yanmei> She offered it to him. "It won't help me where I'm going."
[12:08] <Minaplo> ["…" He took it.-
[12:08] <Minaplo> [EVA-08 held out an outstretched hand.]
[12:09] * Yanmei stopped what she was doing to briefly cuddle Lizzie. "Be a good girl, okay? Be brave for your Uncle Isha."
[12:09] <Minaplo> [She clung tightly. "Maa…"-
[12:09] <Minaplo> [The Eva made an impatient growl.]
[12:10] * Yanmei finally pulled away to step into the giant hand. "I'll put an end to this! I promise!" she called over her shoulder.
[12:11] <Minaplo> [The Evangelion didn't move.]
[12:14] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei stared at it. Seriously…? -
[12:15] <Yanmei> She turned around, sheepishly. "It's not giving me the option of leaving you two to find safety."
[12:15] <Minaplo> ["…"-
[12:16] <Minaplo> ["… To be perfectly fair," Said Isha drily, "It's doing more damage to the Synfront than the Synfront is to it."]
[12:17] <Yanmei> "That's probably going to remain a constant? They only have one or two Evas that can go against it right now." She held an arm out. Climb on.
[12:18] <Yanmei> ^"Climb on."
[12:18] <Minaplo> ["Come on, brave little Lizzie." Said Isha, hoisting the girl up. She clung to his jacket.-
[12:18] <Minaplo> [A step onto the Eva's hand… And it moved, gently, up towards the Plug.]
[12:20] * Yanmei was the first to climb in. She held her arms out for Lizzie. "Come on. It'll be a tight fit?"
[12:20] <Minaplo> ["I don't doubt it." Said Isha, holding Lizzie out.-
[12:22] <Minaplo> [But the plug wasn't as tight as Yanmei thought.-
[12:23] <Minaplo> [It didn't really have a seat, or a control system. Isaiah's Entry Plug was a Trace plug- it was different to the usual configuration, in ways that threw Yanmei off. The glass was a different setup, the shape… Everything.-
[12:23] <Minaplo> [Isha was last, climbing in and closing the hatch behind him. "Bizarre." He said, looking around.]
[12:26] <Yanmei> "Compared to what even I'm used to, yeah it is," she agreed. She held Lizzie firmly in her lap. What now? She shut her eyes, trying to feel the Eva, but not completely expecting to. Would the others in the plug interfere with that?
[12:27] <Minaplo> [EVA-08 stood up, jumping up out of the hole it had made, up to the surface.-
[12:28] <Minaplo> [It ripped through an E-Destroyer with a claw- took two shots from another, which it then promptly slew- then found itself face to face with EVA-07.]
[12:29] <Yanmei> "Shit…! The twins!" She searched for and tried to turn on the comms. Would they work?
[12:30] <Minaplo> [It didn't seem as though they would. The Eva was completely out of control…-
[12:31] <Minaplo> [… Or was it? EVA-07 rushed at 08. 08 sidestepped, punched 07 in the back, sending it sprawling.-
[12:31] <Minaplo> [It would've been easy to pounce the downed Eva, to savage it-
[12:31] <Minaplo> [But EVA-08 grabbed a piece of rubble- an E-Destroyer's arm- and smashed it into 07's head. Again, and again, and again. And then it smashed in the kneecaps- and the elbows…-
[12:32] <Minaplo> [EVA-07 had been disabled.]
[12:35] <Yanmei> So easily… Yanmei gaped, holding Lizzie closer.
[12:36] <Minaplo> [… And then EVA-08 buckled, suddenly, letting out a roar of pain. There didn't seem to be a clear source…-
[12:37] <Minaplo> [… Yanmei would see it first. The Synfront's command centre- nearly identical to the Geofront's- had been ripped open, revealing it to the world. Many of the crew were hiding or had already fled.-
[12:37] <Minaplo> [Isaiah had been wounded- he was leaning against a wall, blood pouring down his side. His enemy- Joan, wielding her sword. And behind Joan was none other than Mary Caine.]
[12:41] * Yanmei leaned forward. "If we were closer, we could neutralize," she growled. "Give him a fighting chance?"
[12:42] <Minaplo> ["If only."-
[12:42] <Minaplo> [Isaiah fought with Joan. She was fast, but in his current state he was just as fast. She struck four times- he deflected, using his telekinesis to parry another. He struck out now, sending a bolt into Joan's stomach, propelling her into a wall.-
[12:43] <Minaplo> [And then Isaiah was moving, as fast as lightning, about to strike the killing blow on Mary Caine…-
[12:43] <Minaplo> [… But Isaiah was not the most powerful thing here. He slammed straight into an AT Field, rebounding and skipping across the ground, landing heavily.-
[12:44] <Minaplo> ["An AT Field-!" Cried Isha.-
[12:44] <Minaplo> [But Isaiah was looking up at EVA-08 now, a desperate look in his eye…]
[12:47] <Yanmei> "Move," Yanmei hissed. "Move, move! Help him! Isn't that what you want to do? Dr. Wei!"
[12:52] <Minaplo> [But it was Isaiah who moved first. Narrowly dodging a lethal blow from Joan, he rolled to the side- using his AT Field, he propelled himself into the air, onto EVA-08's hand-
[12:52] <Minaplo> [He concentrated…-
[12:52] <Minaplo> [… And all hell broke loose.-
[12:52] <Minaplo> [He'd jaunted them. A dirac jaunt.-
[12:52] <Minaplo> [But he hadn't done it properly.-
[12:53] <Minaplo> [A split-second chaotic maelstrom surrounded them, disorientating, even sickening.-
[12:53] <Minaplo> [And then it ended- with them in freefall, smashing through a cluster of buildings, all a swirl of metal and stone.-
[12:54] <Minaplo> [Huge chunks of flesh had been ripped from the Eva's body by the reckless jaunt. Blood splattered the area, filling streets.-
[12:55] <Minaplo> [With a final crashing sound, the Eva came to a stop- buried beneath a titanic pile of rubble.-
[12:55] <Minaplo> [But Yanmei could see the sky. The sky. It was a grey, cloudy sky. But it was anywhere that wasn't the Synfront. She was free.]
[12:58] * Yanmei stared up at the sky, grimacing. The crash had knocked her about quite a bit, but she still kept her hold on Lizzie. "Everyone okay?"
[12:58] <Minaplo> ["Maa…" Lizzie trembled. Her arms were clutching tightly onto General Bear.-
[12:58] <Minaplo> ["Fine, a little shaken." Said Isha grimly.]
[12:59] <Yanmei> "Isaiah…" She searched what she could see from here, but there were only clouds and sky from here.
[13:01] <Minaplo> [A grating sound. It hurt the ears awfully- but the Entry Plug began to move, grudgingly. Something was extracting it.-
[13:01] <Minaplo> [It came to a stop- the hatch popped open. Isaiah stood there, swaying, bloody, dirty, naked.-
[13:01] <Minaplo> [He crumpled to the ground.]
[13:03] * Yanmei scrambled for him, setting Lizzie aside. "Isaiah!" She climbed out and knelt down beside him, checking his breathing and vitals.
[13:03] <Minaplo> [He was breathing. His injuries were ugly, but not lethal.-
[13:04] <Minaplo> [He clutched onto her, scrambling to be closer to her, hugging into her, -sobbing-. "Y-Y-Yan-Yan-"-
[13:04] <Minaplo> ["D-Daa…" Lizzie followed them out, launching herself onto both of them, tears running down her face.]
[13:07] * Yanmei hugged them both tightly. Something in her chest wound up tightly, and finally, she let her own tears fall, silently.
[13:09] <Minaplo> [Isha gave them their time together. He placed the emergency kit down next to them, and gave them their own time. He'd check the perimeter…-
[13:10] <Minaplo> [Ultimately Isha would stumble across something that would tell him where he was. It was a sign.-
[13:11] <Minaplo> [A large laminated sign that had once been in a museum, or a welcoming park. The years had stained it and damaged it but enough was readable.-
[13:11] <Minaplo> ['Melbourne Cricket Ground'.-
[13:11] <Minaplo> [Isha knew where they'd ended up.-
[13:11] <Minaplo> [They were in Australia. In one of the ruined cities. They were in warlord territory.]
