Me: Alright chapter 17 up and going. And I'm so excited this Sunday Dark Waters yay! I'm really happy that's coming out soon it'll be hard juggling all of this but it's gonna work but as long as I'm smart and don't procrastinate like always it'll work out just fine.
Marie: Are you sure you're even going to get the introduction out.
Me: The introduction is already written. I have friend that might be coming over this weekend and I wasn't exactly expecting that seeing as how it was sudden, so I don't know if chapter one will also be up or just the introduction it depends on if I get time to write it between Saturday and Sunday before I upload the story.
"Huh where am I?" I asked out loud looking around. My voice echoed around the small decaying room. "This isn't the hotel, where am I?"
"Does it matter?" a male voice whispered through my head.
"Who are you?" I said trying to turn around but my body would move as I wanted.
"No one..." he came again. "Or someone..."
"What?" I turned slowly trying to find the source of the voice.
"Are you a no one?" he said slowly his voice whispered in my head. "Or are you a someone?"
I kept looking around the room it seemed so familiar yet at the same time so foreign.
"Are you afraid?" he asked me. "This room is part of you. Are you afraid?"
"No I'm not afraid." I said but, deep down, I knew a part of me was.
"Let me show you who you are." the voice said changing the scene. I was floating in the air in an old room that belonged in the motel. I looked down and gasped.
I looked around Bruiser was sitting on his bed starring absent minded at his knife and stone in his hand his eyes. And then Crow who was slumped against the wall seemingly turned off. I felt like there was more behind these scenes. Ren walked in looking somber and she sat down next to Bruiser who didn't seem to notice.
"What will we do?" she whispered her voice cracking slightly. She sounded tired and it made me wonder what time it was.
"We have to wait." Bruiser said without missing a beat.
"She'll wake up eventually." Crow said becoming animated immediately for the conversation. "We just gotta wait and let her rest she has a lot of healing to do before she can wake up."
"I know." Ren said putting her head in her hands. "But even Anita doesn't know what will happen now."
"Anita is also missing some of her memories." Crow said walking around with a frown. "We can't talk negatively. We have to stay positive and keep things running until she is awake and is able to get up and move around."
"I know." Ren said with a sigh.
"And what about the Ice Monster?" Bruiser said looking up. "We need to find a way to stop him. How did Seto stop the Skin Demon?"
"Seto told you she'd tell you herself." Crow said looking away.
"We may not have that luxury anymore." Bruiser said standing up. "We have to know now."
"I can't tell you." Crow said backing up. "Seto doesn't understand what happened. When she figures it out then she'll tell you but you have to wait."
"Stop fighting!" my voice echoed falling on deaf ears.
"They can't hear you." the man said. "Now do you know. Are you a nobody or a somebody?'
"Shut up!" I yelled covering my ears. "What's going on?"
"You can't win." he said gently. "If you don't know who you are then you power won't work. And if your power won't work then you can't save those you care for."
"How? I don't even know what it is!" I cried. "I want to save them but I don't know how."
"When you wake up I will help you." the man said arms encircling my shoulders. "For now sleep."
Me:...so I know it's super super super SUPER short and I am so sorry about that but I wanted to end it here and in the next chapter we will get down to business and try to find a way to beat the Ice Monster.
