Now what do I say?
There really isn’t much more to it anymore.
It’s game over. These Shadow Reversers, whatever they are, whatever they want, they’ve gotten into the heart of the Circus and are finding all the weak spots, tearing everything apart.
If it’s me they’re after, well, they’ve done a very good job of breaking me. I need to go after Rufficous. Miles told me that we couldn’t go after Rufficous though. After the Shadows gulf you, you could be anywhere, he said.
“Do you know what they are looking for? Better yet, what they are?” I had asked Miles earlier.
“Shadow Reversers seek power. All they want is to gain control. They are the darkness in everyone’s heart, the blackness in every shadow. They’re just everything evil in every bad man’s soul,” Miles had explained. “But, here’s the interesting thing; they can’t cont

I breathe in deeply and let out a slow, steady breath. The weight of the world rests heavily on my shoulders, but I do my best to ignore it. It’s hard to ignore though when the end is your fault. If only I had trusted more in my instincts and not let Miguel come to the Main Arena… there’s no time for feeling sorry though. It’s time to start doing something.
The hallways are now black with unknown substances. Dark, deep groans haunt the walls and disturb the peace. There’s something here and there, the shadows are just everywhere now. The Circus has become infected inside the heart and is slowly manifesting its way out into the rest of the body.
Tyler isn’t as cheerful as usual, but is now quieter and less happy. The quiet is not shy or clumsy, but is serious and grim. He has become a lot like his brother whose presence is absent. There’s something dark about him. Maybe it’

The ride home was relaxing. The Tricloca we got was a sweetheart and didn’t jump around all frisky and playful like the one we rode on the way here. This beast was slow and leisurely taking its sweet time – I was even able to pick flowers off nearby trees when we passed them.
We’re finally at the entryway though. Nikolye and Fletch are beaming with excitement, talking (Fletch mostly) about how they couldn’t wait to see their lost relative whom they haven’t seem to have seen for years.
Poor Tyler is hiding his face in shame in his hands, sobbing to Rhyon about how everyone saw him naked. Rhyon is completely detached from the group. He hasn’t said a word since the Market incident. His twin has been crying to a wall the whole time.
Rosalind also seems distance. She keeps looking off to the side or into the ceiling whenever someone tries to make eye contact. Her thoughts must be heavy for her n

No worries. I found Nikie and Fletch pretty quick next to a stand full of candy. The two were having quite the lengthy conversation about which candy is better when two very flashy, identical boys ran by and stopped the chit chat cold. Now the two are just dumbfounded by what they just witnessed. Rosalind isn’t anywhere to be found.
“MayBelle! What are the twins doing?”
“I’m sure they’re just running around.”
“No! Why are they exposed?”
Fletch is flailing his arms around like a monkey in a frizzy while Nikolye seems to be chuckling to himself in the quietest laugh I never heard. The faceless people in the crowd are staring with blank expressions and wondering eyes. Still no Rosalind.
“They found silly juice and decided to get ‘wasted’ as Tyler has put it,” I tell him calmly. I can’t believe he’s still freaking out over this.
I'm trying to raise 1,000 so I can host a contest that will promote my story. I'd really appreciate donations and commissions.
