"truth be told, we..i have no idea where she is." Neo said, a bit flustered. "e-excuse me. i..need to prepare for my presentation." with that, he ran off. he found what he had thought to be an empty room, and entered, locking the door behind him. the room had no windows, so with the door closed and locked the interior was pitch black. "hah..what..what is this.. i feel him. scratching..beating around in my head! PHOENIX! this is not your life anymore! it's mine! for twenty years i waited, locked inside our body. i won't go back to that prison! i won't! i..refuse to be bound any longer!' darkness's voice raged out from the room. however, if a telepath like jerry were to have their channels open, they'd hear another voice. a tired, yet resolute voice that was clawing it's way to the surface of darkness's mind. "no more! i won't sit back and watch you destroy this city. this is my home! these..are my people! and i will do whatever is needed to protect them! if i can't fully retake control..than i'll destroy us both. but i will not allow you to continue this, darkness!" the voice rang out mentally, becoming clearer with each word.
