“Well, I suppose this was the time is it not…?” A voice sounded in the room clouded and darkened by the rain and cloudy weather. “I guess it was…but I am sure we can think of something. They have just decided to push us forward.” Another voice responded. It seemed as though they were having a conversation. The first speaker seemed to be apoplectic, or at least apoplectic while remaining as calm as they could be. “Thesis will eventually find me. And once she does, she will definitely try to get rid of me; I am essentially useless to you,” the First Person said. “That is why I am here to protect you. You have been able to avoid her for a while now. She lost her memory the last time we destroyed her. We still have time, for myself to meet these new ‘competitors’ before the worlds start to go, and you can in the meantime, keep peace in this world. Cause I bet more of those Guardians will be rolling around looking for me as well,” the Second Person responded with a chuckle.
“Why are you laughing?! This is not something that is simple. I just want there to be peace, whether this ‘game’ of theirs goes through or not!” The First Person said frustrated as evident by their heavier breathing. The Second Person looked out at the window where rain poured. “I will find a way to end both sides on my terms. All they will do is keep reviving and the cycle will continue. Both sides seem to want to be finished with one another, which is perfect for me. We both have the nice advantage of holding the power; or used to, that can actually finish them for good.”
The First Person sighed. “Well, if we find the child before Thesis does, we will definitely have an advantage against her. Unless she throws caution to the wind, which does not appear to be her style. If we find them though, then that'll REALLY bring her to us.”
“Right, that is also something you can do while I explore the other worlds. I came across someone who had to have come from our world the way she acted. She definitely seemed out of place there. Luckily I escaped before she could get a good look at me. She's definitely not a student though if the records are recent. But I think I will try to talk to her if I find her running in that world again. But it just attests to my power increasing, I suppose.” The Second Person smiled, as though proud of their maneuver. “You have grown into a cocky person since I last saw you. You must have been a complete wreck when you were kidnapped and thrown into that game.” The First Person placed a couple fingers to their chin while staring at the Second Person. It had only been some time since they met and decided to team up; they did not know much beyond the bare bones of what the Second Person went through, and that he eventually had his prize taken away from him. “Oh, definitely. I am not really that cocky. I am just more decisive than I used to be after that Roulette. I have had enough time to think on this since I fell from the collective graces of the Angels. But on a different note, do you sense any movement in Ananke?” the Second Person asked.
“Not at the moment. For the longest time I only seemed to get a reaction in that one world where time has stopped, the one in Standasen.” The First Person responded. With a grin, the Second Person nodded. “Well, we have our first exhibit. We need to wake him up and out of there, since the Angel did half the work for us. It could be our lead.”
That was all the First Person needed to hear before practically standing from their chair. “Are you mad? That's DEFINITELY going to signal Thesis." He could not understand him. What idiot would purposefully stoke the flames without a backup plan or some kind of idea?
"Good, I want her to know. Not to mention that we can always strike while she does whatever she plans. Like the Angels, Thesis will probably pull something similar and try to recruit people. We can just attack now while she does it; better now than later. The Other Worlds are losing their stability, and soon, they will start being corrupted and if that happens, the Seal over the Father will be broken. I think we have about a month at best before it starts." The Second Person paused to think before continuing again. "We have a lot on our plate. But we can do this. I will go free him, you try and look for Thesis' child. You probably have a better shot at finding them than I do. And look out for the rest. They may not be yours to watch, but they do go to your school...and I can't let you go on while I am doing nothing. I saw what happened with you and him. I won't ever stand back and let others handle it themselves again, not when I can do something about it."The First Person stayed silent for what felt like an eternity before nodding. "Alright. Just promise me you won't get yourself killed. I've seen you; I know what you're capable of. But Ananke is not Thesis. He is Fate incarnate; he's pure impulse and destruction with no leash. If Thesis isn't around, he'll probably mess around in the other worlds, or worse, our own." The Second Person just nodded, and after a final handshake and a firm hug for luck, the First Person left the room, leaving the Second Person alone; how he usually preferred it. The Second Person knew however, that what he had agreed to may have been something he could not fulfill. He walked to the window and looked at the schoolyard. So much has gone by. He had stood back to see what developed, but that turned out to be a mistake, since both sides were now making it worse on everyone. He was not going to let this slide anymore. Too many were roped into this nonsense, and he knew how Gods were; after all, he used to be one...more or less. As the lightning flashed, Simon Alba's face illuminated from the window.
"I will make sure this ends. The Angels and Primordials will both be gone, or I'll die trying..."
