Catching Up

Hmmm… I haven’t posted in a long time, have I? Well I’ve been busy, so shut up. Eternity’s last post was on December 30th, I believe… Ok, I’ll start there.

Walking. It was fine for the first couple of miles. We even met this awesome farmer guy (seriously, he was awesome), but then it got really cold.

Problem: We had no transportation to that city in Illinois (Chicago), and were afraid to risk anybody’s life for a ride.

Solution: We stole a car! I got it unlocked and Eternity hot-wired it. I’m sure no one will notice. It’s a real clunker. Probably did its owner a favor by getting rid of it for them. Hehehehe.

Three days later we were in Chicago. Ah, Chicago. It’s a pretty nice place, ya know, for a city. With lots of people. And no trees. Or breathing room…buildings everywhere…closing in around me…

This place is horrible. But on the bright side, we’re far less likely to see the Rake running around here. So that’s…comforting. Yeah. Haven’t seen the Rake anywhere for a long time. It’s planning something I just know it…

After we reached Chicago, the trail went cold. We kinda aimlessly wandered the streets after that. My map trick doesn’t work anymore, along with most of my magic, something which I’m extremely confused and slightly pissed about. Also, I’m pretty sure I hadn’t slept in three or so days. Sekhmet is prowling through my dreams in a really alarming way, and Id rather not talk about it, so…

We aimlessly walked the streets for days on end in grim silence, prowling relentlessly through shadow-ridden back allies, hoping against hope that a lead would happen across our path. But alas, none came. And just then, when all hope had begun to fade…epiphany.

So I was all like, “Let’s be Runners!” and Eternity gave me a really strange look.
