Relax? You mean she isn’t here to fight us? Why of all circumstances would the Gvn call them out otherwise, if Vypr was of no immediate threat? Reluctance holding Sheela in check, she focused a worried glimpse at Sasha, Devon, and Nathan, all already taking partial heed to her words. Ok, I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to listen to her, for once. Her brother might have been a completely different story altogether, not giving up his entire guard to her, if he had to. She carefully positioned herself as close as she possibly could get to Sasha, not desiring to provoke Vypr in any way. Sheela’s eyes never drifted away from Vypr, not even to take a caring glance at Nicholas after curious words were spoken.
Nicholas refused to ease himself amongst the tranquil land that surrounded his feet. Until he was absolutely certain there was no ill intent, he would continue to be an exception, keeping himself firmly at attention. Naive and blind, huh? Is that what every Corrector this day and age is considered? A little naïve, he could understand, pulling from the inexperienced youth of society to do their bidding; though being blind through this ordeal was not entirely by choice. Mulling over such a precarious situation, this perception of hers seemed completely reasonable, as unfortunate as it appeared. This wouldn’t change even the slightest; not as long as the Gvn continued to pull from the same pool of candidates.
I certainly don’t know what to believe anymore it seems. Sheela, from the very beginning, carried herself without ever questioning her existence, following through with the motions with little regard to the consequences the Gvn imposed upon the DgtWld at any given duration. But why would it ever need to come to that point? She didn’t want Vypr killing any of her friends off. She felt nervous for her own life, before familiarity was mentioned. She was one of the first? Her eyes flickered with surprise; until gloominess clouded her curiosity. Corrupted fragments? What could have possibly happened to Vypr to make her think this way?
Continue on Vypr. Let’s hear what you have to say about our Gvn. Nicholas’ calculating thoughts beckoned her to proceed. You pretty much got faceless right on the money. The predictability of uncertainty followed from behind. It wasn’t until the mentioning of silencing did his attention grasp onto a demanding curiosity. Angered words preceded an aggressively impulsive light show. So, there are secrets the Gvn doesn’t want us knowing about. The whole situation wasn’t out of the realm of possibility and explained why they were always so tight lipped about revealing anything beyond the standard protocol. The only thing I don’t get is why they would deem it necessary to turn a Corrector against one another, to the death. Were their only two options for existence; to serve, or die?
How can they possibly do such a thing to another human being? Sheela was exasperated at such a travesty. Wasn’t it already enough to capture another’s freedom, but to have a Corrector executed was stepping over the line. The absurdity of the whole confliction of ideals was beyond ridiculous. She shied her eyes away, the enragement originating from Vypr far too much for her to handle all at once, overwhelming her optimistic subconscious. There has to be another way out of this, isn’t there? God forbid her from ever stumbling on a dark secret from the almighty Gvn. I just can’t see myself doing the same. Tears pooled within her eyes, her mind distracted entirely on tragic thoughts. You guys are really out to delete me, aren’t you?
Kind of sucks, doesn’t it. Not being able to do a damned thing for another, or even for yourself, for that matter. Abide by the rules and be a good little mindless drone to society or break them down and die trying to fight for a rightful individuality. Nothing like becoming meaningless pawns in a game of chess no less. Is this what kind of primitive life we’ve been reduced to, even in this day and age? He gave off a pretentious glare, focused on the escalating, emotional exchanges. Nicholas’ arms remained crossed as Vypr let loose, holding nothing back, all except her aim that was. I suppose we can’t. Not just yet, I think. There was no doubt in his mind that this wasn’t going to be the final time they crossed paths. Until then, he would be prepared. With their normal digital plane of existence returning and the desire to leave given, Nicholas logged off, without a word.
There has to be some way of helping Vypr out. Hesitant to move on, she questioned herself, wondering if all of this was simply make believe. If all of this was indeed a false reality, Vypr was quite the talented actress. What am I thinking? No one with that kind of story could just make up something so devastatingly tragic. Sheela sighed heavily, utterly confused, her mind beginning to hurt from over-thinking. Let’s just not think about the worst right now. She attempted to psych herself up, to no avail. It’s no use. With little desire to linger behind, she released herself from the DgtWld and returned to the real world, searching for some kind of welcomed solace.
And so it had begun, the first of the group had departed. This definitely bites. Catching sight of Nathan’s swift absence, Nicholas fiddled with the empty bottle next to his designated PC, contemplating. His mind was going to be filled with a racing stream of chaotic thoughts for the remainder of the day. “Damn… I should have known better.” Frustration finally revealed itself, after all this time. Whether or not anyone of the group still remaining figured as to what he was referring to, only Sheela would actually know of anything.
“Nicholas, are you going to be alright?” She leaned forward, attempting to get a better glimpse of her brother.
“Yeah, don’t worry about me. Just letting things get to me again.” He brushed off her concerns; holding whatever lingered, to continue to accumulate within.
“Ok… Nicholas.” She reluctantly accepted his response, though she wasn’t entirely satisfied at his poor attempt at concealing his true feelings. “Um… Sasha…” Sheela wondered if she even dared try at all. “Would it be alright if I…” Is this really the time to be asking? “Would you mind if I stayed with you for a little while longer?” She looked away and up towards the ceiling. “We don’t have to eat anything. I was hoping we could talk things out a little more, whatever it may be.” To be honest, Sasha was really the only one she could talk to when she thought her brother was unable to do so. “You don’t have to, if you don’t want to.” She returned her gaze towards Sasha, letting her emotional eyes plead her case.
