202 Days Until Collapse And the Uncertain End (Part 7)
Zeydar walked through the flames of the street, pushing them back and leaving a path for the others to escape based on the route he had seen from Evester’s map. In an instant he knew how to help the Tower, not by memory but by magic. There was a map in the darkness, and Zeydar now knew where everything was, where everything to destroy would be.
He knew how to escape.

202 Days Until Collapse And the Uncertain End (Part 6)
Evester struggled to run. He had broken something. A rib perhaps? Jumping from a moving vehicle was not the best idea, but it was all he could have done in that instance. A broken rib, how could he have been so stupid? Heia looked worse for wear, but she was fine. Lynx seemed to have dislocated her shoulder grabbing Heia. Not that Heia realized.
Evester rounded the corner towards where he was supposed to meet the others to find a massive blockade of cars that had been moved by the fall, as well as broken buildings. Fires lit the street, and the smell of oil was clear. They’d be lucky to get over it before it went up in flames.
“Uly…” Evester could not find a way around it.

202 Days Until Collapse And the Uncertain End (Part 5)
Buildings were broken, cars discarded, bag and clothes thrown about, items scaattered all over the streets. There was food, blood, but no signs of most any body as Heia followed Evester through the city.
“This district has been evacuated.” Lynx looked around. “No casualties.”
“Which is a good sign,” Evester then jumped with the sound of an explosion. Turning back Heia slowed her pace in time to see an Evacuation ship breaking free from the CloudCity. The sound reverberated through the whole of the city. The ship was large and moving away quickly. “My mother will be on that one, with all of the other first evacuees.”

“You three go.” Estashia told them, looking to Evester with the eyes of a mother. A look that he had not seen in years. “Figure out how to stop this. Help as many people as you can evacuate.”
Did they have time to save everyone now? High ranked Circles and many Stars had been evacuated already, but the others… those in the Tower? Evester did not say goodbye to his mother as he ran off.
“Lynx get in contact with your sister.” Evester demanded not sure if his friends had survived the initial shaking. Hoping he did not have to say goodbye.
“Attempting to.” Lynx snapped back. She tossed him and Heiphillia headsets.

202 Days Until Collapse And the Uncertain End (Part 2)
It was hours later when they were finally called back to the Council Room, much to Heia’s dismay. Everyone looked worse for wear but Evester, who stood with a smug look upon his face. They had not bothered cuffing him this time. There was no point. They could not contain him, or that was what Heia assumed that they would say. She did not blame them. He was far too shifty to be contained.
“Come to an agreement?” Evester asked before they could begin the meeting.
“He’s just ancy.” Heia apologized for him trying not to piss off those who could control their fate.
“We all are.” Estashia answered. “But yes we have.”

202 Days Until Collapse And the Uncertain End (Part 1)
The shakes were all encompassing in a way that made his mind blank. In some way he knew that this was not normal. Everything told him that it was not normal. The sounds were so loud. Everything was too crisp, too vibrant. There was too many emotions in the voices that he could hear. The magic was swirling, tickling, calling, crying, warning. Warning. Warning.
Zeydar opened his eyes to see Onyx with Phil looking down at him. It was only then that he realized he had been yelling. Screaming rather. About what? What had he been—

203 Days Until Understanding And the Uncertain End (part 3)
Evester loved the look of terror that came when ever he did the unexpected. The way that the horror spread across the room once the cuffs dropped to the floor, made him feel alive. He loved being in control like this. The ability to make others know that he can the power, always enticed him. He could escape at any moment, and there would be nothing they could do to stop him. In seconds all the weapons in the room were aimed at him, making his body fall into a state he craved at all times. True danger.
“If we had listened to the Project and properly tested all people as we were supposed to, we would not be in this situation.” Evester smiled to them all as if he were not wanting to try more, to push harder, to place his life on the line.
“We have.” Someone snapped back.

The room was glass with bright lights and filled with a round stadium of seating. There were beautifully lined and comfortable chairs along with tables and name tags that identified each council member. Images showed on the glass screens of multiple other councils all over the world. It was grand and awe inspiring, so much that Heia felt more intimidated than she had before.
“Ah. Full world council.” Evester chuckled as they walked into the room. He led her on towards the seats in the center of the room, where they would be interrogated.
Heia’s training kicked in the moment they were seated in the center. Her eyes darted towards all he exits to find their best ways out. Find all the exits. Look at all the guards. Figure out who could stop them and how. Map out what she knew of the building, which was little.

Evester sat against the wall looking at the white of the room as Heiphillia paced back and forth in the cell casting shadows over him with each time she moved. He liked watching as she moved, for it gave him some sort of entertainment as they waited. Her shadow grew and faded, cast light over him and then darkness. She was inconsistent in her pacing, keeping him on his toes as she moved around him.
“What is taking so long?’ Heiphillia complained again.
“Its procedure.” He wasn’t entirely sure, but it seemed like an answer he could give her.
“You demanded to see them.” She didn’t understand that immunity gave them their holding room. Without it they’d be in jail, actual jail, without a chance to talk to the Council at all.

204 Days Until Prisoners And the Uncertain End
Heia watched as Evester stood for a moment looking like himself for the first time in what felt like forever. Heia did not particularly like the idea of them going out on purpose. However it was necessary. Everyone else was hidden, leaving only Heia and Evester in the spot light. They’d disappeared to take care of Zeydar as well as to plan their way out of the Tower in two days. This left Heia and Evester to be alone in their reveal.
“Are you sure you want to do this with me?” Evester asked her as they walked towards the location Evester had decided he wanted to be captured at.
