Shattered Minds: An Empty Hello
<i>The slug creature would go down easily. It's slimy form could barely protect itself as the bat hit it again and again. In the end it simply spit up a large amount of bloody coins before seeming to sink into the floor. All that would be left of it is a steaming pile of molten gold. Himenko would try to return the book but upon entering the closet She'd find no trace of him. Everything even related to him seemed to vanish, including the other books he had within the room. The school would go quiet for now. It seemed even the students were now gone though it was unclear if something happened to them or they simply left. Eventually police sirens could be heard outside slowly approaching the school. It might be wise to leave now.</i>
Shattered Minds: An Empty Hello
&quot;Monsters, monsters, monsters. Is that all you see? I suppose you'll all have to work on that close minded attitude. Desire is only natural within humans. No, it is what every human hides away that's important. I'd rather not ramble on right now though. I already said. Next time we meet you will perhaps understand more. When that time comes I'll teach you what's necessary. Until then, pay great attention to stories involving disappearances.&quot; <i>With that last bit of context added the man would simply walk straight off the side of the roof. The only thing that could be heard was the sound of something falling and then silence. Nothing could be heard hitting the ground and checking to see where he landed wouldn't reveal anything either. Wei wouldn't find much in the way of heavy objects but a bat could be seen sitting on the floor nearby a classroom. Perhaps it had fallen out of someone's bag? There was also a sudden sound, the laughter of a young girl. The laughter seemed to come from a nearby locker. It was open...the lock that once held it shut seemed to be dented and damaged badly. Something powerful could be felt within. Something that drove those that paid it mind to hunger. If one were to open the locker then they'd find within a heavy gauntlet with a bizarre almost surreal golden pattern etched into it. Over the wrist of the gauntlet would also be a large gold colored gemstone as well that seemed to be the origin point of the laughter. The pressure that the gauntlet gave any who even thought to touch it to put it on would be immense. As if merely it's presence promised everything to those who wielded it. Of course, there is also a perfectly good bat. The slug would seem to have a hard time opening its mouth in response but after some time it would finally seem to figure something out. It would begin sweating even more coins as it's large disfigured mouth preyed itself open. Molten gold would begin spewing from its mouth as it tried to speak.</i> Sluggish Principal: &quot;I...am...free...&quot; <i>Nanako would find no trouble leaving the basement and even hear one of her companions at the top of the stairs leading out of the basement...along with a giant golden slug spewing molten metal.</i>

<i>To become like them...In the end that was all there was. The corpse suddenly seemed to deflate. The skin crawling on the ground before looking up on her. Nothing would persist, only the mere desire to be human remained but that desire cannot ever be fulfilled. Nanaka would find herself back where she was before, pulling something out of the fleshy liquid puddle. Something was different now though, the liquid wouldn't have the same rough feeling from before. It would begin to be sucked into the object she was grasping, a sphere of some kind. The flesh that once made the creature up would become one with the orb giving it a red appearance with one of the creature's eyes at its base. As soon as the object was pulled out it would quickly change its form. It would stretch over and merge with Nanaka's own clothing to give it a similar red color with one of the creature's larger eyes in the middle. No longer did the creature's fleshy skin serve as an obstacle but rather as a method of protection. Skin that would absorb the brunt of physical trauma and serve as a viable shield against other such attacks. Nanaka would already be able to feel as though it was an extension of herself. The armor known as Mimicry. At will this armor may return to it's spherical form as well. The man would seem to make a rather uninterested expression as he spoke of the principal.</i> ???: &quot;Yes, he was helping with an experiment of mine. In exchange he wanted an escape from his financial issues. He wanted his desires to be brought to life. So I rewarded him for his assistance. However, it seems he lacked potential. The potential that you all are showing me now. Though, perhaps next time I'll offer you all a reward as well. I have another experiment I wish to run and having you all there to interfere would help produce better results.&quot; <i>The monster the principal had turned into didn't even seem to try and resist what Wei was doing. All it could do was moan slightly and sweat out more coins. Yet his pain could be felt, resentment towards a world that didn't give him what he wanted and a drive to fulfill his desire despite that. Though these emotions would seem oddly weak almost as if they were reflecting the grotesque form he had taken.</i>

<i>Grasping the object would feel natural as if reaching out towards a distant part of oneself. It didn't dismiss the feeling of the strange liquid flesh but it would at least feel as if there was a purpose to it all. For a moment Nanaka would feel as if she was somewhere else and as if hee identity had been replaced by another. The room she was in was dark, cold and in front of her was what seemed to be a human corpse with unindefntifable features. Many sounds could be heard outside the room aa a single window let in a bit of sunlight through a closed pair of blinds. Chatter, Laughter, and crying. All these things could be heard from outside and yet she would feel nothing. She felt as though she couldn't even hope to emulate them as only an everlasting emptiness seemed to persist within. even the corpse before her didn't give rise to any feelings and yet... The corpse once was a living person to. One who had something that she didn't. There was a sensation of longing, a desire to be like they were. A drive to have what they had. ... What will you do? Become like them? or... Take what they have?</i>
Shattered Minds: An Empty Hello
<i>The creature who embodied nothing was now facing death itself in essence. Most attacks that had been launched against it had been useless as the creature simply adapted and regenerated around them but this attack it had no real defense against. it would try to regenerate but even it's body couldn't make head or tails of what was happening. It's limbs would begin liquefying as the life in them was being drained away. Then soon the rest of its body would begin to melt as well. The flesh, the organs, and even the bones of those it had stolen from were finally losing whatever had held them together for so long. That which contained nothing had lost it's shell leaving behind only a puddle on the ground. It's eyes would absently float within the puddle but there was something else as well. Something stirring below the puddles surface. Even if you couldn't see it, one would be able to tell instinctively that whatever it was, was solid and would almost seem to pull those nearby to take it. There wouldn't be much different in the school as the stairs were climbed, it just seemed quiet. There were no sounds of students anywhere and the halls were empty. It was only by climbing to the roof that anything would change. The floor of the roof seemed to shift and change at random. It wasn't anything noticeable more like the area itself was crawling around in the corner of the eyes of its observers. A man was waiting there as well, just staring off the top of the roof. His hair long and white and his clothes seeming like something that would described in some religious texts. A long white robe that covered one of his arms while leaving the others exposed. Underneath that he would be wearing what seemed to be a tunic and baggy gray colored pants. The exposed arm was also covered in tattoos that seemed to be tribal marking of some kind. He'd turn as if he already knew there were people who had arrived. His eyes were yellow in color and seemed to glow very slightly. As he spoke his voice seemed to echo oddly despite being outside.</i> ???: &quot;You sought me of your own volition. I was wondering if that was the course you'd all take. You seem to posses a great amount of potential.&quot; <i>The principal back on the first floor would only seem to become less and less coherent, both physically and mentally. His body really was turning to gold as coins began dropping from his even more rapidly. His eyes began to seemingly pop out of his head but he didn't seem the least bit distressed by this. The coins were also beginning to stick to his skin.</i> Principal: &quot;It is only when were are whole that we can be free. The restraints we put on ourselves... Is there any point to this struggling? Man should simply do whatever it is their instincts demand. Perhaps he is right, that this is our truest form. I am grateful...to...&quot; <i>His voice would become an incomprehensible gurgle as his skin would pass right through the hand restraining him. A sloshing noise could be heard as his body seemed to stick to the ground. The sound was similar to a bag of coins being shaken. His body itself had become that of a multitude of coins climbing together to form a mass. His eyes now stretched out into stalks as he was nothing more than a slug made of golden coins.</i>

<i>The monster would just idly stair at the weapon Nanaka was firing as it tried to free itself. Somehow it didn't seem to understand what was happening at all as if it was just trying to free itself on pure instinct alone. The blue light would emerge from the gun's tip once more, causing the weapon to heat up as it was projected. The orb at first didn't seem to do much other than light the creature up as it showed no reaction what'so ever. After a moment though, it's head would fall to the ground still blinking and it's body would stop moving. A large hole would now be burned within a large radios at the base of its neck. Suddenly, Nanaka would hear a voice echoing all around her. As if someone was speaking to her from ever direction imaginable at once.</i> ???: &quot;That's not enough...You have proven you're potential though... Perhaps you can be of use. That creature shouldn't exist here. Something is keeping it whole. You must reach within... Only then can you make it once more incomplete.&quot; <i>The creature's body would suddenly move once more. It's foot would smash free of the remaining ice as it's headless body began to stumble. It was already struggling just to walk so now it was having an extra set of issues, only being able to watch itself from a third person perspective. The head suddenly began growing fleshy legs around its lower half though and began to steady itself upright. It would slowly begin crawling back to its body as the hole that had just been formed was starting to close up. The principal had began looking up tears forming in his eyes as he began to sweat, a smile still on his face. His sweat would also seem to glimmer oddly from time to time as well.</i> Principal: &quot;What happened? Am I okay? No, no, I was freed... I have never been okay until this moment. There's been a filth festering inside of me for a long time but today that filth was given a way out. But my insides are so unclean that I feel once everything comes loose it will still cling to my skin. He...Yes, him. He was so pure, so clean. It was blinding. I wondered if I could be clean like him but all he can offer me is purity. I will be neither filthy nor clean. I will be whole...&quot; <i>His skin was now starting to turn a golden color and it seemed to become shaky and inconsistent. His sweat also starting pouring out as coins began to fall out one at a time from the pores on his skin. They were solid gold in color and seemed to feature the principal's face on each of them.</i>

<i>With less distractions the creature breaks one leg free from the ice. Using an abnormal amount of strength to break through it even as it reforms. It barely even seemed bothered by anything going on around it as it's body seemed to begin reforming any potentially lost tissue. It would try to break its other leg free as well but it would seem to now be struggling with the extra layer of ice. The cracks would form slowly but they'd begin forming regardless. Out in the hall where the others were likely to convene the principal would would be barely carrying himself down the stairs before falling to the ground upon reaching the final step. There was something wild about his eyes but for some reason he seemed to only be able to smile.</i> Principal: &quot;I...I...never knew...please...no more...&quot;
Shattered Minds: An Empty Hello
<i>Unfortunately for shadow, rather than their camera becoming messed up it is their controls that are reversed. Of course, this wouldn't matter in the end as the nightmare brew that had already accumulated quickly to around shadows chest would quickly freeze over before there was a chance to do anything. Both the monster and shadow would be unable to move their legs for the moment which didn't even seem to matter to the creature as it swung its blade down on him. Even if he was so much as scratched by the blade he's find himself emptying from the inside out. There'd be no blood or gore, they'd just become empty on the inside and then the outside would follow suit until there was nothing left. At this point the creature's blade too would begin being effected the same way until it too was gone from this world and its club like arm was no more as well. The weapon shadow was carrying would drop onto the ice, sliding a short distance away from the creature before hitting one of the icy walls. The creature would stare at the ice before it began to struggle in making getting its feet loose. It would pull against the ice, every tug seeming to crack away at it. The spirits claws would also act as a distraction but that was all to it. Any damage the cold claws cold inflict seemed to mostly be shrugged off, only slowing it down while it tried to break free.</i>

<i>The monster would not even seem phased by shadow's antics as he broke through the ice, creating yet another hole within its foundation. The many eyes covering the creature in fact would seem to be able to more than keep up with the hedgehog's movements. Especially considering, the amount of space within the ice chamber wasn't all too great to begin with making moving around it even with great speed somewhat awkward. There was also the nightmare brew still filling the chamber, roughly up to the monsters thighs at this point. The constant damage being inflicted by it seemed to not even phase it all that much but shadow would no doubt begin feeling it more intensely. There was also the matter of the rune Yurick placed which would be hard to see given the nightmare brew covering the floor. The creature's club like arm would begin to pulsate slightly as the spikes covering it retracted. For a moment it almost seemed to shifting into a normal arm but things would quickly go wrong as the hand that was being formed split open and began spilling something out from within the creature's body. The substance would be almost impossible to describe seeming like a liquid metal of sorts that quickly filled into a shape around the creature's arm. When its formation finished it seemed like an odd long scythe-like blade extending up and down the creature's arm. It would raise this new weapon above its heads, it's eyes focusing on Shadow. Many voices would speak as one as it delivered its message to Shadow</i> Nothing There: &quot;Goodbye.&quot; <i>The blade would sing wide and fast. it was an attack that anyone with enough distance could easily avoid but there was no space to easily get away from the attack in the icy prison they were trapped in. The blade was aimed with an odd amount of precision as well, as if the creature was using every one of its eyes to keep track of its target. If shadow were to be too badly messed up by the rune he could even just be cleaved in half right then and there. The creature with its attention taken up didn't even seem to be able to see the others at the moment. It was as if the approach Shadow had taken was using up all its observational ability. At very least it did seem distracted for the moment.</i>

<i>The gun would fire up once more having had time to cool down. It would shoot a beam of pale blue energy...about a foot outwards before seeming to reach it's limit in terms of range. The knife would also do little besides imbued itself in the ice wall still separating the creature from the group. The creature however, seemed transfixed on shadows actions. It would begin making a waving gesture with it's arm towards Shadow. The voice would once more project itself from within the monster's body.</i> &quot;Hello?&quot; <i>The small mouth on its palm would suddenly breath in deeply and quickly. A moment later a small part of the ice would shatter as a compressed ball of wind would cut through the air aimed at shadow. The projectile in question seemed very similar to a bullet but the pressure was much more intense causing even the air around to be disrupted. Even if shadow could dodge the bullet-like compressed air he'd still feel himself being pushed towards the wall by the sheer force of the blast. The creature would look at its hand before looking at everyone else in the room. it would begin waving.</i>

<i>When the rumors started nobody remembers. The only thing that could be remembered was what they entailed and how simple gossip soon would become a legend among students. As it went a once popular student one day disappeared after seemingly losing their mind the day before. It was said that they had been dared to go into the school the night before but most don't even recall exactly what it was they were doing there. Since that day though many individuals who pass the school ground at night report hearing a heavy breathing that seemed to come from within the building itself and occasionally inhuman screams that are assumed to be the cause of some stray animal the wandered within. An exterminator was sent to take care of it and an exterminator soon disappeared within the building as well. These incidents have led to the principal calling on anyone with 'experience' to come and investigate the cause behind it all. The principal stood outside of the school, feeling stupid for expecting help to arrive so easily but still holding onto some hope for a swift resolution to these events.</i>
