Always the Lucky Ones
*By the way, we are now in the police department. Just thought you'd
like to know.*
Robertson: Hey Chris.
Chris: *not taking his eyes off his book* Hi!
Robertson: Did you have to bring that book to work?
Chris: Or my name isn't Chris Aleatory!
Robertson: Can you at least not read it all the time? You're making
Chris: So is that gum on your shoe, yet you don't hear me complaing
Robertson: *About to say something, but then looks at his shoe and sees
his point.* Just be glad you're that aware of your surroundings. *Walks
Chris: .oO(I was at first, and still am when investigating crime
scenes, but for everyting else it gets annoying quickly. That voice
made it sound like such a good thing. He'd better give me the power to
turn this one off or I'm choking the shit out of him. And I'm hungry.)
*Takes a short walk though the long-ass hallway from chapter 9. Yes, I
did just break the fourth wall AND THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT
Chris: .oO(Wasn't this hallway shorter than I remember? Oh, wait, no it
wasn't. Nevermind, foodtime! Wait a sec, sensing... energy? No, wait,
now there's... hair? Lots of hair and metal and something else I can't
put my finger on. Seems to be going to the chief's office. This I've
got to see!)
*Later/about 5 seconds earlier, this happened*
*PHOOF and WUMP*
Sir Greg: Did you have to teleport us directly to the police station?
That seems a little suspicious.
The Arch Mage: Didn't get a good sight of the outside. I will after we
talk to the guy.
Mike: *getting up from the ground* Well what are we waiting for? A hug?
Let's get going!
*Instead, they meet up with Chris!*
Mike: Might want to pay attention to where you're going and not that...
children's... book... huh.
Chris: Considering that you're a magical cat-man-thing and she's some
sort of knight and he's some sort of mage it probably shouldn't be too
surprising that I too am magic!
Mike: Jeez, I just said 'look out'.
The Arch Mage: Did that voice give you your powers too?
Chris: Yep, about a month ago.
Sir Greg: How long has this voice been doing this stuff?
Mike: Good question! Perhaps we can discuss that with the guy.
Sir Greg: Right, right, the reason we came here.
Mike: Would you like to join us?
Chris: No way I'm missing out on anything that invoves a human-sized
bipedal talking cat, a female knight, and a mage, AND ALL OF IT TAKING
PLACE IN MODERN-DAY TIMES!
Mike: Yes, we're all very excited to talk about stuff.
*A fancy way of saying that they went to the office. I'm tired shut up.*
Victor Montague: Umm... guys, can we talk for a sec?
Mike: Exactly why where are here.
Victor Montague: Oh, good then--
*A boom approaches!*
Sir Greg: Well, we are all out of time, thanks for joining us on this
very special episode, be sure to turn in next time! *leaves*
Mike: Guess we have to deal with that. Talk to yah later!
The Arch Mage: *leaves*
Victor Montague: WAIT GUYS IT'S IMPORTAN-- damn.
Chris: They'll probably talk to you afterwards.
Victor Montague: They disappeared last time.
Chris: Then you will probably end up not being able to talk to them
about the stuff you want to talk to them about.
Victor Montague: Why do you say that?
Chris: To keep whatever you wanted to talk about a mystery.
Victor Montague: Why?
Chris: It's a common trope.
Victor Montague: What, do you think this is some sort of show?
Chris: *Stop looking at the camera, man! You're breaking the fourth
THE END (of this chapter at least)!
Victor Montague: You didn't answer my question.
