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 protection65PENANAGiCKduI2g1

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 protection65PENANAUgEZ5lYLYF

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 protection65PENANAnOtyqMODTm

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 protection65PENANAnzF0jTv2VL

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 protection65PENANA3Q2IP74NT2

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.  But it would be problematic to remove someone from such an established universe and plop them into this mess.  Whatever! copyright protection65PENANAsgRVPhHDUB

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 protection65PENANA0ibFivyNxt

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.  Not to mention the whole flashlight incident copyright protection65PENANAyBjAj8IoWB

"Oh, zut!  Nathan, you're the breach?"  I asked in awe.  "Shadow, I really should have seen that coming." copyright protection65PENANAqoShkHz2lt

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 protection65PENANADlMP04kzRS

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.  Based on his record, he was most likely dangerous. copyright protection65PENANA2qtm0NvJbr

"Which one of you did I enlighten?" he suddenly asked.  My writer and I laughed together. copyright protection65PENANAlCQeUaWtch

"Nice pun, Nathan," I said.  He had a thing for puns that was almost cute. copyright protection65PENANAXQCJGDO0cF

"Of course, Claire's the one with soul-sight," my writer explained.  "The scars are for effect.  Do you prefer a different look?" copyright protection65PENANATf6mB7a7Qm

My writer shapeshifted to a short teenage boy with brown hair and dark glasses.  I recognized the form.  "Danny?  Why him?" copyright protection65PENANAybYoqTzmnM

"What are you doing?"  Nathan demanded.  "You're not Daniel!  I will not succumb to your heinous schemes!" copyright protection65PENANADkDg4jTTk6

My writer smiled.  "I'm God.  I can do whatever I want to."  She returned to looking like me. copyright protection65PENANAydlFAXMK4C

I smirked at Nathan.  "She's so awesome that way." copyright protection65PENANA6DO52eYBAl

"You're awesome, too, dear," my writer said. copyright protection65PENANAneG0uLkoEE

Nathan groaned.  "Get a room." copyright protection65PENANAudRQSsNEcR

I took a step back, staring in shock.  "Excuse you?" copyright protection65PENANAgiu5oxjm8U

"Should I shut him up?" my writer asked. copyright protection65PENANAHw8oxD9R1N

"Yes," I said.  "Make it painful."  My writer probably lived a sheltered life, but I didn't shy from violence. copyright protection65PENANAww0omSQax2

"I love your ideas, Claire," my writer said. copyright protection65PENANA2OlxTJ4d6c

Nathan struggled in his duct tape bonds.  "Wait, what did I do?  There's no need to be rude!" copyright protection65PENANA8OJgcgUl8W

My writer pulled a baseball bat out of a spacetime rift and smacked it over Nathan's face.  He blacked out almost instantly. copyright protection65PENANA8Es92P1TZy

"You know that wasn't necessary, right?  I could have just made him sleep, and it would have been way more painless," my writer said. copyright protection65PENANAV1mhyg1Ct7

I shrugged.  "He knows everything, doesn't he?" copyright protection65PENANAPBVyS7PNtY

"As far as I can tell, yes.  So how was school?" copyright protection65PENANAJBCbKF0My0

I shrugged.  "I actually have homework today." copyright protection65PENANAlu2IMBYNes

"The reset will take care of that for you." copyright protection65PENANAU34PCXXsKq

"I actually want to learn, you know." copyright protection65PENANAqt23FMJGzi

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 protection65PENANAGVNJDzkCmy

"What if you leave?" copyright protection65PENANA4gB96e63GR

Shadow stepped back.  "I wouldn't leave without making sure you're ready for the world beyond." copyright protection65PENANAt7lwa0iTHS

"Okay."  I stared past my writer at Nathan.  "What about him?" 69Please respect copyright.PENANAdSXRtiF5Wn
copyright protection65PENANAcnNZ7ryr3U

"I'll deal with him.  In the meantime, I have something planned for you." copyright protection65PENANAZ8aBhhQolw

"What?"  I frowned.  "But the breach–" 69Please respect copyright.PENANAoth5NaTyC8

"Has been contained, as you can see.  Go and enjoy some quality time with your friends.  I'll even invite sweet Ollie.  It'll be fun!" copyright protection65PENANAwUGkTOLrfO

She took my hand and suddenly I was on the Dyson Sphere with Jack, Robert, Cole, Gabe, and Oliver.  69Please respect copyright.PENANAnXnjuexiUa
