It was a couple of minutes before midnight, but Arial made sure she was early enough to meet up with Nathan. The autumn air had felt cool on her skin, so she chose to dress in her denim skirt, leggings and a thick comfortable sweater. She sat on the nearby bench, listening to her music, her head bopping to the beat.

Nathan arrived a minute before midnight. He hugged his brown leather jacket around him and tried to think of warm summer nights by the beach. He felt the bulge in his pocket that assured him his baton was safely tucked away in case he needed it.

"If I had to live here I'd run away before winter rolled in," he said, approaching Arial from behind. He tapped her on the shoulder to get her attention.

"Gah!" Arial jumped off of the bench and whirled around, whipping her headphones off. "That..." she pointed at him. "Was a rude thing to do! What do you do with a blind person? Sneak up behind them too?"

She then broke out into a smile. "But I'm glad you showed up. Are you ready, Mister Bodyguard?"

"Blind people can hear me coming," Nathan explained. "It's deaf people I jump out and grab."

"Lead the way," he said, tucking his hands into his pockets.

Arial glared at him, but she gestured for him to follow her to the memorial statue. She stood underneath the ghastly figure of the town founder. She took a deep breath. "Okay, just like how the legend goes."

"I saw Karen Benson get pushed." She said aloud.

Nothing happened. Of course, she'd have to say it nine more times.

So she repeated it again and again. She paused at the fifth time and glanced over at Nathan. Why was she hearing static? It was like white noise or some weird thing. Arial said the phrase three more times and the static worsened.

A troubled frown crossed her face. She sucked in a breath and said it twice more.

"I saw Karen Benson get pushed."

A wave of nausea washed over both Arial and Nathan. One moment they were in the park, the next moment they were in a strange world. The ground was black like a glass mirror. Buildings stretched to the sky, glistening black with speckled rainbow colors. Arial looked around confused.

"....Mr. Sage...?" Arial held her head, groaning slightly. "What the hell?"

Whatever Nathan had expected to happen, this hadn't been it. He pinched himself, wondering if he'd fallen unconscious or fallen into some drug-induced haze. No, the pain was sharp and clear.

He grabbed hold of the baton in his pocket and gripped it tight, ready to use it if something lunged at them.

Priorities, he thought.

"So this is where the others went," he stated, more for himself than Arial. "Do you see any sign of them?"

He took a moment to look around himself. Footprints, a candy wrapper...anything that would indicate someone had been here.

Arial knelt down and she picked up a notebook. She looked it over and opened it. Her eyes widened and she looked over at Nathan.

"This is Natalie's math book! I remember! We were talking about her math exam that was coming up."

"Okay," Nathan replied, trying to keep calm and rational about the subject. "So she was here. But she dropped her notebook. Did she normally keep it in a bag or just in her hands?"

"She sometimes likes to carry the books she would use more often in her hands." Arial felt her hands shake as she held the notebook. Sniffing, she held it close to her chest.

So...you were here...

Arial turned to Nathan. "So...if this happened, I guess in a week I'll be chased by a ghost and pushed into traffic, huh?" She laughed nervously.

"A week's a long time," Nathan replied. "Let's see about actually finding your friend first."

He looked around them for landmarks. If something hadn't attacked her right away, she'd have tried to go either towards shelter or something that looked familiar. He tried to put himself in the girl's shoes, which wasn't very difficult at the moment given the situation.

"What do you think?" he asked. "Check the closest buildings?"

"Hm? Y-Yeah." Arial nodded as she snapped out of her thoughts. She looked back at the notebook and followed Nathan from behind. The first building they approached had locked doors. Arial glared at the door and looked around.

Something moved within the shadows. She tugged on Nathan's arm. "You see that?"

Nathan hadn't seen anything, but after what they'd already experienced he wasn't going to write off the warning as nerves. He pulled the baton out of his pocket, keeping it retracted and concealed in his hand.

"You know how to pick locks?" he asked, keeping his head on a swivel. He could do it himself, but then he'd have his back exposed to the world with only Arial to watch over him. This arrangement would work better.

Arial rolled her eyes at him and she set to work on picking the lock. The creature that came from around the corner rose and grew into an inky black mass with glowing red eyes. It lunged at Nathan with a loud screech.

Nathan wasn't sure how well his baton was going to work on a creature that appeared to be mostly liquid, but he didn't have time to consider an alternate plan. He pressed the button, deploying the baton and swung at the creature's face.

When Nathan hit the creature with the baton, it merely didn't do anything to it. The black mass slid back and turned its gaze onto Arial.

"God damn it...these locks are absolutely stupid." She yelled in frustration, not noticing the advancing mass.
