Leon smiled cheerfully, he wasn't dead, that was good. He walked over to Alden, his bodyguard not currently in the area. He stood close by him, and leaned in close.

"If you would, allow me access to the Josiah file now. Things are starting to get out of your control."

He leaned forward over Alden's shoulder, completly positive that if Alden were to deny his request, the Marinae would not only be without a good portion of their peoples, but a leader as well.




Edgar cursed loudly, ran to the teleportation pad, and slammed his fist repeatedly into the ground. He was in a state of hysteria, nothing made sense, why today, why couldn't fate give him more time to cope with these recent discoveries.

Holly shot Brad a puzzled look. "So...let me get this straight...Josiah mentioned my shard, but not me...so then...how were you able to find me? The Marinae bases are humungous!" She exclaimed, waving her arms over her head in a gesutre that emphasized her point.

She sat back quietly, folding her hands on her lap and sighing.

"Look...I told you all that I know. I'm not forefitting my shard, and if that's what I have to do in order to see him..." She paused for a moment, thinking about whether or not she was willing to give up a chance to see Josiah again. After a moment's thought, she decided that maybe now wouldn't be the time to see him.

"If I have to give up my shard to see Josiah, then I'd rather not. So, if you'll please Mr. Desin...let me back to the base, and I'll make sure your helicoptor can take off before anyone knows you've dropped me back off." She wasn't sure if he would listen to her or not, but she felt it worth it to give it a try.

"You are mistaken," Brad said. "He wants the shard, what we are doing is making sure you still have it. We honestly don't want it. We prefer...more stable shards, like the one I have. Josiah is not trustworthy, if only because he has power, power beyond consideration. No great power comes without extreme cost. These shards destroyed a government which we apparently cannot reunite. Alexander the Great conquered the world, and then died of a fever, Caesar did the same, and was assasinated, America gained most of its power, but in the end was corrupted.

"So what did Josiah lose? What did he sacrifice to gain so much power? Until he is proven trustworthy, and until he delivers on his word, we aren't giving anything to him."
_________________________________________

Jack shook his head. His great plan may have been unsuccessful, but at least the other goal was completed. He was actually suprised it had succeeded in the secondary. Holly just happened to walk right into their hands, right at the perfect time. A successful coincedence.

He had his guards bring Josiah, waited. He wanted to be paid before doing the paying.

For a moment, Holly looked outraged that they weren't going to just let her go so easily. But then she just slumped back again, letting out another, defeated sigh.

"Well look...the shard is in my posession." She rolled back her sleeve and lifted her arm, letting the shard dangle off her bracelet. "What else do you want? I am not handing the shard over to anybody...so that means that I won't be seeing Josiah. I've told you everything I knew, so you can't bleed more information out of me...so what...what else is there?"

She waited a few moments for Brad to answer, but then just shook her head.

"Are we almost there?"

"Yes, we are." He said, "I'm afraid that your choice is not an option. If he sees that we have not given him the shard, or even tried, he will break off this deal. Thus, unless you can give a counter offer, or can reach someone who could, this shard is no longer yours."

Brad's hand was in his jacket, fingers closed around the gun's handle. Just in case.

Holly could see that Brad's hand was in his jacket as it had just dawned on her that he still had a weapon in his posession.

"You'd better be planing on using that gun." She says with a smirk. "Because you're not getting this shard off me unless you do." And with that she crossed her arms over her chest and looked off to the side.

Might as well enjoy the rest of the flight. She thought as she decided to just relax until they arrived to their destination.

Alden closed his eyes and took a deep breath, pushing down all of the chaos of the day, and focusing on what was currently happening.

"Fine, but remember, six hours. Follow me. Eric I want you to..."

He glanced around the room, looking for his bodyguard.

"Damn it. Well, this way."

Alden guided Leon through a maze of identical corridors until he stopped at a door. For all Leon knew, it could have been the one going back into the room they had been kept in earlier. It silently slid open and they stepped into a room with a single table in the center. He pressed a button and two computer monitors rose back to back in the center of the table. Two panels slid open on the table in front of the monitors revealing two keyboards with trackpads.

"Take a seat, and remember, my computer will mirror everything on yours."




As Jack turned around to face his desk, he was surprised to see Josiah.

"I am disappointed in you Jack. I told you to get the girl discreetly, not to attempt to destroy the Marinae base."

(OOC: Vulkar, this is just to get us outta this damned helicopter, so forgive me for assuming control of the moment.)

Holly's head was buzzing. We must be landing... she thought to herself as the helicopter was jerking about more than before. Then, suddenly, she felt everything come to a hault. She looked around and waited. She then stretched and looked over at Brad, a smile creeping across her lips.

"Shall I allow you to go first, Mr. Desin? Or do you feel the need to shove me out at gunpoint?"

Brad nodded. "You go out at gunpoint, I can't trust you." After you got out of the helicopter, he kept the gun pointed towards her, and briefly turned before shutting the door to the helicopter.

"You're a neutral." He said, "if you can make any sort of counter offer for the shard, we'll be glad to let you stay free. Josiah is making his offer right now, we just want you to counter it."
__________________________________________

Jack smiled, how predictable. "I'm afraid, Josiah, that I told you to stay in your cell. That was part of the conditions for this alliance wasn't it? Now, what happened to the guards I sent down to see you?"

He raised his eyebrows, and continued speaking. "We had an opportunity. At the moment they think taht we just wanted to keep her safe. They can have no idea why we did this. Now, how about telling me exactly what we get in return for her? And no, if you pull any cliched villian stuff about how that's how I'll survive, I won't give her to you. I wanted something of equal worth."

Holly complied with Brad...at least until he mentioned her being there for free.

"Stay for free?!" She exclaimed as she spun around sharply and looked up at Brad. She clutched her bracelet and her wrist tightly. "First, you force me to come here...and now you talk as though there is a fee involved?!" Before Holly could realize it, she was already shouting at Brad.

"You don't understand. You're NOT getting this shard and that's final. It's of grave importance to me and I'm not getting rid of it until we do away with ALL shards." Her cheeks were red and she began breathing a little heavier than normal. She had tried all day not to get worked up in front of everyone, but she finally lost it. "You're not getting the shard, simple as that. As for your little "fee" for staying here...Just let me go and we won't have to worry about that at all, now would we?"

Brad shook his head. Wrong definition.

"By stay free, I don't mean you stay for free, I mean you stay free. Stay free from being our prisoner. As it is, we have you here and captured. We do not wish to take it from you, and until you cooperate you will be staying with us. Given that you are in fact a neutral, you will be given a good living quarters."

They walked off the landing pad, and towards a large building. Knowing Holly, she would eventually grow impatient. She would be exposed to many news reports, and every thing about the world available. All she had to do was give up that shard...

"You can put the gun away at least." She mumbled as she stormed off ahead of Brad and toward the building. She kept her hands balled into fists and left them at her sides.

Calm down Holly... she told herself. But she couldn't help it. She was fuming. Once she got to the building's enterance, she turned. She placed a hand on her hip and tapped her foot as she waited for Brad to catch up.

Josiah sighed,

"A small rule. And if you can break a rule, I can. As for your guards, they are fairly incompetent. But don't worry, they are perfectly fine. They are just guarding an empty cell."

He pulled a coin out of his pocket and began to flip it in the air.

"While I am disappointed with the means of which you acquired the girl, I am pleased that you completed the task. Of course, you could have stealthily kidnapped her, or if you insist on making a show, you could have taken a group of hostages, that way it wouldn't be obvious that she was of interest.

Of course, you never were the greatest strategist. But that's not why I chose you to assist me. I chose you because you are a clear thinker. Only you have the capacity to understand the true potential of these shards."

He caught the coin and stowed it away.

"Now, I believe we have a guest awaiting us."

He gestured to the door.

"Shall we?"




"Edgar, there is a high chance that she is still alive. The secondary hub is set to activate almost instantaneously. Or she could have easily teleported before the bomb detonated. You don't understand the speed of teleportation"

Jeremy guided his weeping brother towards the pad.

"Come on, we'll go to the Marinae HQ and meet up with Isha."

Once they were safely situated on the pad, the all too familiar process began. Jeremy had teleported many times before, but every time he did it it felt like a new experience.

First his vision was clouded with smoke. The moment he breathed the vapor in, he could feel ever muscle in his body becoming loose and rubbery. Despite the relaxation of his muscles, he was still standing completely straight. He could feel the light turning on before he could see it. The blue light shined up from under him, reflecting of the smoke. Jeremy always thought that it looked like he was looking into a pool filled with stars. Before he was done marveling at the stars, he could feel himself being pulled by his head and feet.

He kept being stretched until he felt like he was only a few centimeters wide. When he felt like he was about to snap, he did just that. He broke apart into billions of little bubbles. He felt himselves being pulled in some direction. At this point, the concept of direction was completely foreign to him.

He began to travel through a blue tunnel, dots of light streaking by. This part always felt like a different length. Sometimes it felt like hours, sometimes seconds. Once, it was reported that a man had felt like he had lived an entire second life on his journey.




Jeremy blinked, and he was back on the pad. That was one of the easier trips. He turned to Edgar to see how he had done.




Isha opened her eyes to a strange sight. Through her blurred vision she could see an illustriously decorated room, with stone walls and a thick red rug. She lay comfortably on a large bed, a thick quilt pulled up to her neck. She noticed that she was hooked up to an IV with a clear liquid in it. Suddenly, she heard footsteps approaching the door.

Isha's eyes opened she was stunned, she heard someone at the door. Did...Something go wrong? This didn't look like Marinae HQ, at least not from the intel she'd gathered. She sat up in the bed and weakly spoke.

"Who's there?"

her speech was almost nonexistant, she was certainly drained from something.




Edgar sighed and stood, he hoped his brother was right. He hoped that his long-time friend and bodyguard was alive. She meant too much to him for hher to die now. To leave him abondoned against the whole planet. With nothing but himself and his shards to get through this.




Leon smiled, Alden had fallen for a slight trap. Leon's shard eye began working, reading the pages extremely quickly and processing all of the information directly to his memory, He was fully memorizing and finishing a page every thirty seconds. His right eye, being the real eye, simply shut, awaiting the completion of this. Leon could sense the confusion Alden was feeling right now. Leon was beasting through this file, fully commiting it all to memory at an extremely quick pace.

Holly's patience was wearing thin. She let out a long, deep sigh, as she waited for Brad. She didn't want to be there. At all. However, she really didn't have much of a choice. Everything happened too quickly back at the Marinae base and she would be foolish to try and escape now. She wasn't going to give up her shard though, that was for damned sure. She didn't trust Brad, not the Eshy'um(Sry, I forgot how to spell it) faction for the matter. As far as Josiah was concerned, her mind was torn in two directions. Part of her couldn't help but see him as her friend, that same person who accompanied her on her search for the phantom shards. But another part of her felt that his recent actions were extremely suspicious.

She sighed again as she twirled a piece of her black hair between her fingers. She decided she was going to wait it out, get to know her surroundings before trying to make any sort of escape.

"Wait." Brad sadi to Holly, "don't rush ahead unless you want to get yourself shot. Most people would think that an escape attempt. Now, Jack and Jeremy are ready to meet us. Since you cannot give us anything, then we must take you to Jeremy. He'll take the shard, and you'll lose everything."

They walked forward some more, to an elevator, which lifted to the top floor, Jack's office.

Holly gripped her shard so tightly that her knuckles turned white. "I said you can't have it." She said softly. She looked up at Brad. "Why do you have to do this?" She asked. They had already reached the top floor by the time she asked so she didn't expect a reply. She simply smiled and made a gesture with her left hand, signaling Brad to go first.

"Because you have given me no reason not to." He reached out and touched a button on the elevator, it had not yet reached the top. "Other than the fact that you want it, is there aa real reason why not? We are at war, and must take extreme measures."

(OOC: Sry, I kinda read your last line wrong. Thought it meant we were already there. )

BIC: "Because...You just can't have it." Her voice was still soft. Was she caving a little? There was a knot in the pit of Holly's stomach. Her mother had given her the shard before she died...Her eyes looked to the ground for a few moments before she tilted her head to the side and looked up at Brad again. "Extreme measures?" She shook her head slowly. "Mr. Desin, I don't call taking a shard, that does nothing but protect its user, from someone who is on no one's side and unwilling to aid anyone an extreme, or necessicary for the matter, measure."

She looked to the floor again, still clutching onto her shard. This was it. The only thing her mother left behind...Holly was losing the battle. There was no reason for her to be cocky anymore. These people had guards, with weapons, and she only had hand-to-hand combat training as well as a shard that she could not control. She didn't want to be there anymore...but no one would save her. Who the hell am I to assume someone would come? No one's that special... she thought grimly to herself.

"I'm sorry..." she says, shaking her head again. "I'm not giving it up. Why do I have to give a reason? It isn't your's. Why isn't that simple enough?"

"I wouldn't take it," Brad said. "Your old friend, Josiah would. Now, since you have nothing more to say...please don't feel any animosity towards Jack or myself. If we betrayed Jeremy, we would both be dead. So in a way, it is still doing its job by leaving us both alive."

he pressed the button again on the elevator, feeling a tinge of guilt go through him. He didn't like Jeremy, but this was neccesary. The elevator door opened, revealing Jack's office. Jack stood when they entered the room, walked around his desk, and offered a seat to Holly.

"I believe we did our part of the deal," Jack said. "Now, how about you give us something of equal worth?"
