My slice of pound cake remained stubbornly uneaten on the kitchen table as I told my mother I need to do homework at the library.  I hopped on my bicycle and headed to my old house.  Well, specifically, my underground bunker under the shed of my old house.  It was way too expansive to rebuild under the lawn of my new awesome house. copyright protection10PENANA23XmIrdTCS

I rode up the tallest hill in my town and stopped at the house on the very top.  Stashing my bike in the bushes, I hopped the fence into the backyard.  The shed was locked, of course, but I had learned the new combination after painstaking spying. copyright protection10PENANA68H0YDPBfc

Inside, the new owners had filled the little wooden shed with all kinds of garbage, but it was for the best, as they obscured a high-voltage sign that we'd left when we moved out.  I lifted the sign and tapped "guardian" in Morse code on the wall.  The floor retracted behind me and revealed a set of wooden steps.  I walked down to level negative one and closed the entire contraption, covering the stairs and locking the shed with one button. copyright protection10PENANA9tujrxK137

The first level was the only level that existed before I lived here.  The previous owner had fitted it with blue carpet, painted the walls blue, and mounted a now broken TV on the wall.  I'd never bothered to change any of it.  If anyone discovered it, they'd think it was a normal basement built by an over paranoid person.  copyright protection10PENANA76b4sTvGM8

No one else was here, so I crossed the room and unlocked the closet.  Inside sat a set of concrete stairs that I had added.  They led to a medium-sized underground warehouse that my writer had constructed for me to hide in if a dangerous breach were to hunt me down.  We'd known this day was inevitable, but if she hadn't been so crazy in her world bending, it wouldn't have come so soon. copyright protection10PENANAyThgUgTJS9

I descended the concrete stairs to solitude.  It was really all right.  I didn't need people, right?  Shadow would be enough company until we apprehended the breach.  I wondered whom she brought for backup.  Probably Kaity.  She's a badass. copyright protection10PENANAV1Dpk5X561

I swung open the door and on the other side, I saw poor Nathan duct taped to a carbon fiber chair glued to the concrete floor with PVC epoxy.  I know that because I was the one who used excess epoxy to glue that very chair to the acoustic center of the warehouse.  For some reason, however, the entire warehouse was empty otherwise. copyright protection10PENANAce8ojAhPh3

But more importantly, there was only one reason why Nathan would be here in my bunker with my writer.  After his strange behavior before Soulless and his absence today at school, I felt like an idiot for not seeing it sooner. copyright protection10PENANAYQWf7Rw1Ao

"Oh, zut!  Nathan, you're the breach?"  I asked in awe.  "Shadow, I really should have seen that coming." copyright protection10PENANAawpOWKTTQ0

My dear writer in the form of buff me turned and smiled.  "It's okay, sweetie.  I was being very vague for your safety." copyright protection10PENANAV3e3ryEInV

Nathan definitely seemed more annoyed than I had ever seen him before.  A large bruise covered the left side of his face.  Shadow probably tortured him, since he was most likely dangerous. copyright protection10PENANAMlMJBUA7Vb

"Which one of you did I enlighten?" he suddenly asked.  My writer and I laughed together. copyright protection10PENANAw6HWUEHNyx

"Nice pun, Nathan," I said.  He had a thing for puns that was almost cute. copyright protection10PENANANtA2w1AaKY

"Of course, Claire's the one with soul-sight," my writer explained.  "The scars are for effect.  Do you prefer a different look?" copyright protection10PENANA6wkSgVMQ3I

My writer shapeshifted to a short teenage boy with brown hair and dark glasses.  I recognized the form.  "Danny?" copyright protection10PENANA1AOJwJodwW

"What are you doing?"  Nathan demanded.  "You're not Daniel!  I will not succumb to your heinous schemes!" copyright protection10PENANALjpmmWnW68

My writer smiled.  "I'm God.  I can do whatever I want to."  She returned to looking like me. copyright protection10PENANAUcEe5VaSLe

I smirked at Nathan.  "She's so awesome that way." copyright protection10PENANABNOqxk9VyF

"You're awesome, too, dear," my writer said. copyright protection10PENANARkZgGlc4ij

Nathan groaned.  "Get a room." copyright protection10PENANAccwRrCMCvy

I took a step back, staring in shock.  "Excuse you?" copyright protection10PENANAQ6lEwSZFNy

"Should I shut him up?" my writer asked. copyright protection10PENANAlFSkWzG9DY

"Yes," I said.  "Make it painful."  My writer probably lived a sheltered life, but I didn't shy from violence. copyright protection10PENANAsPbZGCBte7

"I love your ideas, Claire," my writer said. copyright protection10PENANA15dmKKfKq2

Nathan struggled in his duct tape bonds.  "Wait, what did I do?  There's no need to be rude!" copyright protection10PENANAiLIb6EKMNn

My writer pulled a baseball bat out of a spacetime rift and smacked it over Nathan's face.  He blacked out almost instantly. copyright protection10PENANAKgcVfTyQmN

"You know that wasn't necessary, right?  I could have just made him sleep," my writer said. copyright protection10PENANAXnTbKDVZnm

I shrugged.  "He knows everything, doesn't he?" copyright protection10PENANA2G7KRdoBZc

"As far as I can tell, yes.  So how was school?" copyright protection10PENANAZKscGH6eyt

I shrugged.  "I actually have homework today." copyright protection10PENANA2wQVIByEAW

"The reset will take care of that for you." copyright protection10PENANA0DC7otkN5k

"I actually want to learn, you know." copyright protection10PENANAZ54rhK9oZH

My writer crossed the gap between us and enveloped me in a hug.  She was the only person who hugged me other than my immediate family.  "You're the most special person in your world.  As long as I'm around–" copyright protection10PENANAR1eIXWjwAU

"What if you leave?" copyright protection10PENANAsAy4IWy2JE

Shadow stepped back.  "I wouldn't leave without making sure you're ready for the world beyond." copyright protection10PENANAnIJra1cjqc

"Okay."  I stared past my writer at Nathan.  "What about him?" copyright protection10PENANA1hegZbcjHN

"I'll deal with him.  In the meantime, I have something planned for you." copyright protection10PENANAd9oLe6HN8r

"What?"  I frowned.  "But the breach–" copyright protection10PENANArw9bXkdaDD

"Has been contained, as you can see.  Go and enjoy some quality time with your friends.  It'll be fun!" copyright protection10PENANAmFVBVUM8eu

She took my hand and suddenly I was on the Dyson Sphere with Jack, Robert, Cole, Gabe, and Oliver.  14Please respect copyright.PENANAm75vj3Pxdt
