Well, it’s short but I hope you like it. ^^

The female Noah looked at the city she was about to blow into pieces.
“What a shame. You could have some good drinks there and the men where nice as well.” She said with a glimpse to her unconscious lover. Slowly she pulled Pandora’s box out of her jacket took a deep breath and opened it.

After Prometheus gave fire to mankind and was punished. Zeus decided to punish humanity. Thus he created Pandora gifted with beauty, grace and curiosity. He gave her a pithos (a storage pot) never to open. However Pandora’s curiosity was stronger and she opened it. From then on mankind was plagued with terrors, old age, death and fear.
And after all the terrors of mankind left the box there was a light on its bottom. A light called hope. But was it a way to live with the terrors or truly the worst of them?


Anlen looked inside the box and with a shocked face closed it. She turned to Lione and screamed: “What the hell have ya done? When you wake up you can scrub the deck!” She throws the box at him and it opened through the impact.

Empty

In a tent a young man was working in his improvised laboratory. It was not what you thought of when entering the tent and its state was somewhere between poor and “If you are a professional you’d sell your soul for it”. A slender red haired man enters the tent. The young man turns around, he wears a silver rosary, and begins to talk: “Did you bring it here? Are you sure it’s yours?” Uriel pulls the shiny innocence out of his pocket it begins to glow even brighter. “Of course Master Jacques the reaction is characteristic for its conformer.”
He puts it on the working table. Jacques examines it closely. “I’ll need three days to corrupt it then you can use it without fear. Choose the form of your wings by then my angel you will wear them for the rest of your existence. How’s the work on the beast going?” Uriel took some papers and began his report with a smile.

“It is just as you said. Its original innocence is the one in his body. The spear is just the innocence’s effect. I presume from what I heard about late Raphael’s thrill during the battle it was his. Too bad we can’t prove it…….

Ying looked the black axe in front of her. She had taken it from the dead body of her victim shortly after the battle and was analyzing it since then.

It’s not innocence but has similar powers. It’s charges itself with energy according to the users personality activating an individual power. But everyone can use it. My test showed even a Finder activated its effect. Trying to chop wood he nearly blew himself up. A terrifying weapon yet still I admire it’s developer. No wonder he can even manipulate innocence

Tabby packed her bag. She knew it was a stupid idea but as she asked Rinvak. Much to her surprise she agreed right away. She took the bag and walked out of the dormitory.




At the same time a young girl practices tonight’s sermons hymn. But before that he had to prove worth in the most cruel way she could imagine. “So kiddo are ye ready to fight? This is not a test I’ll kill you if you loose.” Said Gabriel, she is clothed in a tight pants and a shirt pushing her breasts up in a unnecessary way. Belial held her baton over her head and started spinning it. “I’m r-ready INNOCENCE ACTIVATE!” Sizzling flames appeared round the baton’s tip forming the shape of a fox. With a quick shot Gabriel froze it with a second she crushed it. “You got to do more than creating cute animals, kiddo.” She said aiming at Belial’s chest. Suddenly Gabriel’s is surrounded a walls of fire. She shot at them but the walls kept growing back. After minutes she collapsed breathing heavily.

Shit that kid never intended to fight me it just waited until I exhausted myself

The flames grew back revealing a unconscious but unhurt Gabriel. Seconds after that Belial fell unconscious as well.
“What do you think Jak-kun? Is she impressive?” Magier and Jacques discuss the outcome. “She’s strong because of her pure heart. But she’ll never kill someone. We can’t rely on her.” Jacques said smiling. “But for now let’s prepare the sermon.

Rinvak was watching the town from a distance. She saw someone approaching from the distance. That someone is Tabitha Brown. “You’re late Tabby now let’s go. Rumors say a strange wandering preacher is seen near Plymouth. The others are most likely there.”
Tabby looks at Rinvak. “The plan is going there create an uproar getting the others and run away. No necessary risks.” She said with a determined look. “Well do you need some help then?” Both turn around to see Ying and Eny stepping out of the shadows. “You two? What are you doing here?”, says Rinvak. Thoughts are running through her head and are disturbed by a loud Eny. “Do you think I’d let you save Fermium without my help?”

“And mine Munchkin!” Lyra slowly walks to the others a shy Madeline behind her. Madeline said with a timid voice:
”Lione got hurt because of me I’ll fight too this time.”
Her ring starts to brighten a little. Lyra begins her speech: “Ok now that’s the plan. We step in. Kill every bad guy inside and save the others! No just kidding we stick to the uproar plan. And we need to look for Lione I’m kinda worried.” Eny interrupts her:
”Why? I bet he just went for a drink or two!”
“No is Munchkin-silence time okay? Usually when he goes drinking he comes back Plien comes un russe.(drunk like a Russian) But he comes back before midnight. He didn’t so he must be in trouble.” Every one looks at the ground with worried faces. Lyra starts speaking again taking a heroic pose:

”Then let’s start our glorious rescue mission! The true heroine of this story is going to save ya all!”

That’s all ^^ nothing really important happened here. I wanted to start the rescue I hope you’re not angry with it.I'm sorry for making Lyra so wacky.


feeling ignored T-T
is it that bad?

I like it, nice little chapter. ^^ I especially like the first part. I can perfectly imagine Anlen's face, haha.

But what are Rinvak, Tabby and company about to do? Rescue Lione? If yes....they don't dare to enter the ship that just sails on the sea, right? ^_^"

well I they if Lione doesn't come back they would think he'd go after Jacques so I let them go to his camp. They don't know he's with Anlen.

Yeah I imagine Anlens face between shock and relieve since she did not want to blow up Boston. ^^

yay first post! i would have written earlier but i haven't been on as much as i used to due to having a slow computer at home (it takes forever to post) and studying for my upcoming mcat on tuesday -_-;

anyway, this was a great chapter since it contained advancements for the three sidestories/plots. i think you got lyra down but i'll have to ask my sister since it's her character.

so the exorcists are going to try to rescue the captured ones or lione? i'm kinda confused on that. if it's the former, i hope that i could write a torture chapter; i'm quite sadistic...

overall, great chapter :)

they are going after Jaqcues and will need about three days (it's hard to measure distances because I have no idea of traveling in the late 19th century)

I've been thinking...should some of the exorcists stay behind to protect HQ while the others goes off to the rescue mission?

i think my sister is going to incorporate that in her chapter so you don't have to rewrite it.

i think for the next chapter, it'll contain both her part and my part so it might be long...

.::.edit.::. my sister isn't going to include her part so i guess it'll just be a torture-centric chapter
