"Skelter sat upon a broken down couch in a broken down warehouse. His thoughts wandered, but couldn't find a home. Oh where oh where was his little thoughts gone?" A young woman stood before the man, speaking in a playful tone. The two seemed to be waiting for someone, though Skelter was getting rather impatient. Queen had been sent out on a mission late last night and he had heard nothing from her. There was some worry that perhaps she was captured by the cadets. If that were to happen, he knew they wouldn't waste any time trying to brainwash her again. She'd most likely be executed on the spot by the Royal Guard. His foot tapped against the ground at an accelerated pace, and the young woman standing before him placed fingers against her lips. "Hey, I'm talking to you, Skelter. You've been gone for years, you can atleast not ignore me. Where the heck were you anyway?"
Skelter sat back in his seat and placed a hand against his forehead. "Hell, Alice. Have you ever been locked in a prison withinin your own mind? It ain't fun. All I remember is darkness and shadows all around me. I was chained mentally by shackles and kept within this dark space for what seemed to be an eternity. It feels good to finally breathe." And as if right on cue, the Psyche Terrorist took a deep breath of fresh air. He had vowed never to be a prisoner again. Whether it be in his own mind, or behind an actual cell, he'd rather die than go down that pain again.
Alice looked upon him with a knowing expression. After all, she just recently escaped from her own sort of prison thanks to a number of Cadets who thought they could handle her. The young woman crossed her arms and stood in silent thought. To think her own domain turned against her, it was quite the pain. But they got what they deserved at the end of the night. They could have lived in her Wonderland but instead they chose to die in it. Oh well, good help was hard to find these days. However, her thoughts were interrupted by a sudden slam of the door that caused her to jump to Skelter's side.
"Yahoo~ I'm back, Skelter! ..Oh.. Alice?" Queen had finally returned from her mission with snacks, drinks, and a small device in hand. She was surprised to see another from the old days had joined their merry band of Terrorists. The Terrorist smiled and tossed her a soda can, which Alice caught and stared at. "Ugh, no thanks Bee... I don't want the carbs." She mumbled the words as Queen giggled and placed an unsweetened ice tea upon the table between them. "I'm just kidding, Girly. Ya know, I still have the same grocery list as back then. I guess it was instinct to buy this even without knowing you were here. Heck, I even bought some juice for Giga-bit.. Even though he's not here.." Her voice trailed off as the three of them looked towards each other in silence.
Skelter kicked his feet up onto the table, folding his arms behind his head and closing his eyes. "That's alright, we'll get Giga-bit back soon. I can't stand the thought of leaving that kid locked in that prison. Queen, you know how it is.. A fuckin' nightmare." He raised a hand as his partner in crime passed him a beer. Smirking, he popped the cap and began to take a few swigs of it while Queen had her own brew of Honey Ale.
"Oh.. Skelter you won't believe this. Last night I came across a few of the new Cadets out in the Forest of the Lost. You'd be surprised, not all of them all obedient pets of the bitch Queen. One of them let me escape~" She twirled a finger playfully as Skelter sat up in his seat and placed the bottle on the table. "No shit?" He questioned. "I'll have to pay this dog a visit then. Sooner or later.. First things first, did you all get that message from that dude calling himself the Phantom? Says he knows a way we can overrun this city with Demons. It's a bunch of bullshit but I believe it." The Leader of the three took another swig of his drink while Alice tilted her head in thought.
"You just got out, you sure you should trust someone so soon? If you're going to meet him, I'll come with you. I have many methods of pulling the truth out the skulls of those who claim they know it all, remember?" The Terrorist spoke proudly of her abilities as Bee chuckled and sat down on the couch. Kicking her feet up next to Skelter's, she would wink and smile. "And I'll be there too, just because I miss this crazy world we lived in. Down with Endymion! Down with the Queen! Haha!"
The three pressed their drinks together and took a swig together. Queen leaned forward and placed a small device upon the table. It was square, almost like a radio of some sort. A buzzing came from one end and suddenly..
"Bzzrt.. Hello? Anyone there? The Phantom has called-~"
