Shosuro Miren Posted December 14, 2011 Share Posted December 14, 2011 Early April 14th, 2027 Exalt! Building Puck had tucked Brute...Eden...his sister into bed; they both knew she didn't need to sleep, but she was still exhausted from everything that had happened and a little sleep at least would help. Scripture had left while the two of them were still sitting on the floor of the office and Infinity had either slipped out at some other point or gone with him. Either way, Puck was alone there now, his mind and senses still reeling from what had happened to him. He stared at his hands on the desk, then raised one and flexed it; the black-and-red blade winked into existence and then back out again as Puck sighed and ran his hands through his hair. It was just so much! That's what mentors are for, right? And it's, what, eight in the morning in Ibizia? That's not a totally pathetic time to call, is it? He let out something between a snort and a laugh. Not pathetic there, nevermind the time here. He fished into his pockets for his OpPhone before he remembered that he'd crushed it half a day ago; muttering to himself to remember to buy a new one, he picked up the old-style phone that had been in the room when he'd bought the building. He spun the dialer, each click and chime of the numbers sounding off with a precision that almost gave him a headache. "Yes?" a voice asked after only a single ring. "Shiv. Um, it's Puck. Is...is Chang available?" There was a pause on the other end and Puck could feel Shiv evaluating him over the phone. "Puck. Are you alright? You sound...different." "I'm..no, I'm not, really. That's why I'm calling. And I am. Different, I mean. Something happened. Like Chrysalis, but...not. Like....I don't know. Scripture said something about it being like what happened with Norman a bit ago." Another pause, then, "I see. I shall see if Her Grace is available." "Thank you, Shiv," Puck said quietly, tapping nervously along the leather inset of his desk as he waited. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
