Shattered Minds: Smiles of the Dead
<i>The man would jump down to where the rest of the group was. He seemed somewhat disappointed but also seemed almost excited at the same time. Suddenly, light seemed to gether in his hand, possessing a deep red hue. Without any warning his body would move forward inhumanly fast towards Akia. He'd plunge that light directly into her, passing through her skin. He'd take a step back suddenly forming a maddening smile across his face.</i> &quot;I am Adam, the father of the new world that's to come. Until next time we meet, my faithful follower.&quot; <i>Without much warning the man would be gone disappearing from space as suddenly as he appeared. Meanwhile, Akia would find that something within her was starting to become... Overbearing. Her skin would suddenly feel like nothing more than a container holding something back that rested deep inside of her. <b>Seed of Light Germination: -100%</b> Something was coming, something that very well could pose more of a threat to the rest of the group then even the monster before. However, what that threat truly was would be based on Akia herself.</i>

<i>The man seemed to turn a dial on the back of the strange gun impatiently.</i> &quot;You want information? That's not how this all works unfortunately. You all could've bowed out way earlier if it was. Regardless of what you all do people will continue to die to these...'abnormalities'. If you want to know more then I'll need some insurance from you all. If you all were to take the reward then I'd be willing to give you the information you desire.&quot; <i>The man would look at Akia with a smile.</i> &quot;Or you can let her take choice A. Of course she'll be the only one to gain understanding. In all honesty, if you did simply try to leave without taking a reward I was just going to kill you all anyway. Can't be too careful now that you've all seen as much as you have.&quot;

<i>The teeth that blocked their escape would begin to crack and break. It doesn't seem intent on breaking quite yet but then the hammer would suddenly start moving on it's own. The jaw on it would open up widely and bite into the wall, breaking the teeth apart as it began to devour chunks of it at a time. However, by the time they were finally able to pass through the gate, all at once, the cave they were in would collapse. It would be impossible for anyone to survive with several meters of dirt and rock suddenly piling onto them... However, each member of the group would find themselves still breathing. There seemed to be something holding back the collapsing rock, something akin to a spectral field of red surrounding each of them. Most of the ground seemed to pass right over them until they reached the surface once more. The graveyard was now a mess. Most of the grass had turned brown and decayed and the ground itself was a crater compared to what it once was. Of course, there were zero dead bodies, most likely the result of the monster from before. Standing at the top of the crater, staring down at the group, was a man in white who would be familiar to some of the group.</i> &quot;Well done, all of you. That was just the performance I expected. It seems you all really are something special. Of course, if you failed that simple trial I'd have to assume you all as brain dead.&quot; <i>The man would clap softly, holding a strange looking gun in one of his hands.</i> &quot;So, it's time for a gift from yours truly, for the future of out partnership. Since you all did so well I'll give you a choice. Should once of you receive a big gift or would you all like something? Evolution for one or should I test all of your potential?&quot;
Shattered Minds: Smiles of the Dead
<i>The faces would lose their smiles. Pained expressions would overcome them as the mound desperately crawled towards Himeno but it was incomplete, incapable of doing much without a everlasting union. The mountain of smiling bodies was no more as it would crumble and fall apart. Himeno would no longer feel it's presence but the endless hunger it had would remain. Himeno would suddenly find herself back within the cave. The object she had been grasping now had a shape. She could feel something akin to a black metal handle attached to what seemed to be a hammer head with a mouth on on side and three smaller masks similar to the ones that had covered the walls... Had being a key word... The group as a whole would notice that the minute Himeno was able to pull her hand away from the large mouth the faces would vanish and the decay that had made up the walls would begin cracking. The cave itself would begin shaking as small bits of debris would begin falling from the roof. It seemed that the creature was now falling apart and as a result the cave it had carved out would soon follow in a matter of moments.</i>

<i>The feeling would be slow yet consistent as Himeno for a moment no longer felt as if she was in a room covered in decay. The space she was now in would actually be much more open, infinitely so. A tiled white floor that seemed to stretch infinitely in front of her and a plain white door attached to a wall behind her. All around her were the dead bodies both of people she knew and did not know. At first the area would be quiet but one by one the dead bodies would rise now wearing white masks with smiles carved where their faces would be. They'd all gather a few feet away from Himeno. Useless corpse after useless corpse, devoid of life as they all piled together. Their flesh would begin to twist and turn as it blended together in the mound before her. She would feel a sense of clarity that seemed to seep into her mind. The dead wanted this. For their lifeless bodies to be recreated as something else. It was only natural yo want to include other in this union of flesh as well. Nobody would die in vain, nobody would be alone, no body would go to waste. The reasons for their smiles was obvious now. It's hunger not for flesh but to include all people in the afterlife together. The faces would all turn to stare at Himeno, the mountain before her would open its massive jaw, inviting her inside. The door behind her began to open. What would your life amount to? To become part of something greater or to let it all go in vain?</i><div class='edited'>(edited by Roland)</div>

<i>The flames sent at the screaming mouth would begin eating away at its already partially charred body. It would attempt to let out one final scream but the sound would die out as quickly as it began. The mouth would fall to the floor as dust just as the other had before. Himeno would see that the flames had worked as well. Whatever she was grasping was beginning to come loose but the faces around her still lining the walls would begin to moan in pain. She as well would soon find that the smile she was once forced to wear was replaced with a feeling of dread looming within. There was almost a sense that whatever she was pulling at didn't want to simply be removed. Once more she could feel it trying to overwhelm her senses but it was much weaker than before. It seemed as though it would only be successful if she allowed it. Otherwise, it would only take a firm tug to rip the object out of the mouth.</i><div class='edited'>(edited by Roland)</div>

<i>As soon as Himeno grabbed onto the object she'd find herself filled with an intense emotion. The urge to smile would be almost sickening in it's intensity. She would be able to not only hear her own heartbeat but many others bouncing off the walls of the room. Despite trying to back away she would find herself struggling to release the object as the black decay that made up the creature's body began to crawl up her skin. However, it almost seemed to not have any malicious attempt slowing itself almost immediately as it reached her wrist. There was another strange feeling, the feeling that if she wanted to she could get lost in something. All she'd have to do is close her eyes. Water puts out any fire around the group. You are now all wet and smell a bit like yeast. Yurick's attack would successfully stagger the mouth preparing to bite. Nanaka's sword would be enough to finish it from there. Pinning it to the wall as it squirms before finally going limp and falling apart into a pile of black colored dust. Himeno would also feel the heat from the blast on her back but somehow wouldn't feel any pain on. Just the urge to continue smiling. The mouth preparing something else would be burned but still somehow would endure the attack. All at once it would let out a horrible scream of pain. The sound itself would be ear shattering to all except Himeno who would hear the scream only as a distant afterthought. Those who suffered the screams effects would find their bodies being torn apart and their minds seeming to shatter. The effects wouldn't completely wipe them out but the damage that was inflicted would be more than just negligible.</i>

<i>Any flames would find themselves dying down with the torrent of black goop. The only signs of the fire spreading was whenever a stray body part would be caught within the torrent of decay. The fire would usually die out as well but that changed with Akia's inclusion of alcohol. Suddenly the group would find a sea of flames forming right above them as the torrent began to cease. Fire would essentially rain down on top of the group as the smell of burning corpses continued to spread. However, heavy breathing could also be heard as the mouth that had released the torrent hung open, unable to even close. Something seemed to stand out within its open mouth, something strangely glimmering. Two other mouth like extensions would form from the walls in front of the mouth stuck in the wall. One looked ready to bite anyone who got near while the other seemed to be quietly bellowing as if preparing for something.</i>

<i>Moans of pain could be heard echoing from around the chamber as every corner of the room had begun to burn. The face that had tries to attack Nanaka would retreat back into the wall before it too got too badly damaged. The masks lining the walls would change from smiles to pained expressions of despair. Finally a bellow could be heard and all the faces would grow quiet. Another mouth formed out of the wall directly in front of the group. The flames seemed to cause it pain but it opened wide regardless. In a mere moment a stream of black liquid would violently pour out of its maw. Bits and pieces of half decayed organs and limbs would also float through the liquid along with pieces of bones. Merely being touched by the substance would seem to eat away at one's very being, almost similar to Akia's nightmare brew but seeming to damage the physical health and mental sanity of its targets. The liquid's true purpose seemed more to try and put out the fire though before it caused too much damage. One it's attack was done the mouth would remain on the wall hanging slightly ajar as if reacting in the same way as someone would after throwing up.</i>

<i>Without much warning the entrance to the room would suddenly be closed off by a large set of teeth slamming shut. Anyone still outside the room when this happened would find themselves unable to enter. Anyone within the room would find themselves now trapped within. Anyone who for some reason was lingering at the entrance would now find a giant set of teeth biting down on them with an immense amount of force. The room would seem to start moving as laughter could be heard echoing from every corner. The smell of decay seemed to swirl throughout the room as out from the darkness white circular masks began to peak out. They all had smiles carved out on their surface as if greeting those trapped within. A large mound of decay begins bubbling along the wall to Nanaka's right before a large jaw extends from the wall covered in smiling masks. It lunges forth, it's back still attached to the wall as it tries to take a bite out of Nanako's shoulder.</i><div class='edited'>(edited by Roland)</div>

<i>It would be a few weeks until the news would feature another story of disappearances. It would be on the local news. Reports of a graveyard with strange happenings and the disappearance of several of its grave keepers. At first, this wasn't made public knowledge but the frequency of gravekeepers vanishing from the grounds became more and more frequent. It was with the disappearance of the 11th that the city took action. It was obvious that they needed to seek help from outside sources. And so a reward had been offered for anyone who could find the missing grave keepers. Of course, not everyone may be investigating for that reason. Perhaps some remember the words of a strange man. Regardless, the graveyard would stretch out in front of you. A large field with a old iron gate surroundings its perimeter. There wouldn't be too much of immediate note. A few graves looks slightly more rustled than normal. There was a small shed near the back of the cemetery as well. Finally, there was a stone structure in the middle of the graveyard. A mausoleum of sorts with an old door made from iron and wood.</i>
Shattered Minds: An Empty Hello
<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>
