day 5

[The fifth day doesn't dawn at all. In fact, the sky simply isn't there anymore; the only thing visible if you look up is pure black nothing. Most of the carnival itself is no longer visible, having been blanketed by thick white fog; any attempt to enter said fog will result in your body rapidly disintegrating. The street at least still seems to be intact, but with no way out and the fog slowly creeping in, who knows how long that'll last?

Luckily, it seems like the cavalry has finally arrived.]

(OOC: This marks the last day of the event! Anyone who has won a prize from Mayfield's carnival will be able to access both Mayfield and this area through the funhouse, and will be able to take one person with them on each trip they make. If your character is not rescued by the end of the day, they will be disintegrated by the fog and will wake up the next morning in Mayfield with the standard revival effects. You are free to comment in this post regardless of whether your character signed up for the event.)

[Rin had begun taking steps into the house, but turns right back around at the sound of her name. So now she's back in the doorway, leaning on it a little.]

Yeah! ♪

[Aah, she already feels better, seeing him show up. She really didn't want to be exploring alone. Rin beckons him closer.]

You should probably see this... ♪

[Lucas doesn't slow his gait as he approaches. Rin will receive an earnest and maybe slightly-too-tight hand-clasp as Lucas expresses his relief.]

I'm so glad to see you! I was afraid something had happened when I lost you in the darkness...! Ah, so you've been here the whole time, too, then...

[Lucas turns at her words and glances at the walls.]

...L-U-C. ...'Y'?
roadroller: (play with a smile)

[personal profile] roadroller 2012-07-10 12:41 am (UTC)(link)
[ehehehe he was worried... wait, gotta be serious here.]

Aah, sorry to worry you. I don't even know what happened back then... I just showed up in the carnival a couple days later. It was really weird. ♪

[There really isn't such a thing as too tight of a hand clasp for Rin. Especially not in a situation like this. She looks down at their hands and decides she'll just leave that there. And now to focus back on the wall.]

I thought so too. But what's it there for? Lucy's not hiding in a closet, is she? ♪
a_gentle_boy: (Embarrassment)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 12:47 am (UTC)(link)
Ah, don't apologize. I'm just glad you're OK.

[Lucas pauses.]

...I don't know. If it's a clue, it's not a very interesting one. Spelling out Lucy's name...

[Lucas will walk a little bit closer.]

Or maybe they were trying to wish us good luck.
roadroller: (Like Dislike)

[personal profile] roadroller 2012-07-10 12:51 am (UTC)(link)
Good luck, written in blood? ♪


Don't get too close, okay? It could be a trap. ♪

[Walls are not to be trusted. She is just not letting any more fingers get dissolved.]
a_gentle_boy: (Question)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
A trap?

[He'll stop in his tracks.]

...Maybe so. If it's not very useful for anything else, then...

[He'll retreat back a few paces.]

You just walked in just now? This house has always been closed when I looked before.

Well, the door was closed, but not locked. I just swung it open. Is that suspicious? ♪

[Rin shrugs, and then her eye catches the little detail of the wallpaper.]

- The wall's kinda lumpy. ♪
a_gentle_boy: (Confused)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:04 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. I meant 'closed' as in... I couldn't get it to open, no matter what I tried.

[Lucas will follow Rin's gaze and -- ]

...I see it, too. You think this is the trap?
roadroller: (the hell is this)

[personal profile] roadroller 2012-07-10 01:06 am (UTC)(link)
Probably. I found a corpse in the wall two days ago. ♪

[She frowns at the wallpaper. The way it curls up, she can't quite make out the shape of whatever's lodged in there.]

Is it bad that I still want to poke it? ♪

[she retrieved her sword. She can totally poke it.]
a_gentle_boy: (PK Love)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:08 am (UTC)(link)

[In rapid succession, Lucas casts Shield, and then Defense Up three times. Given that Rin is already a robot, her damage reduction is probably something like 95%. Lucas is a solid 75% himself.]

OK. Go ahead.
roadroller: (grin and bear it)

[personal profile] roadroller 2012-07-10 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
[Rin looks surprised for a moment, then almost laughs, breaking into a grin instead.]

Well, thank you! ♪

[now she feels like a proper RPG hero with her sword and her buffs. All right, time to get impressive on this wall.

Actually she'll just stick her sword under whatever the lump is and try to push it up. Let's try not to break anything this time.]
a_gentle_boy: (Mesmerized)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:19 am (UTC)(link)
[...Lucas wonders if Refresh works on a robot, and decides that doesn't make much sense. He'll just have to hope that this is enough to protect his true love friend.
roadroller: (now what have we here)

[personal profile] roadroller 2012-07-10 01:29 am (UTC)(link)
[it's a t-rex aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh

no wait it's just a piece of newspaper. Rin kneels down to pick it up, and reads over it. She can feel her eyes rolling halfway in, but she finishes reading it.]

... You've got to be kidding me. What is this? ♪

a_gentle_boy: (Surprise)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:37 am (UTC)(link)
Lucille Bell...

[Lucas frowns a little as he examines it, too.]

It's like... a sarcastic clue. Lucille. Lucy. ...Maybe this is why he looks like a little girl.
roadroller: become a pop star and they give them to you for free! (don't buy drugs)

[personal profile] roadroller 2012-07-10 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
I really hope not. ♪
a_gentle_boy: (Contemplative)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:52 am (UTC)(link)
It might make sense. He went insane for some reason, remember? Why not if... someone he cared about was murdered? If any of this is true at all...

[Lucas pauses.]

Maybe I'll try an experiment when I get back.

[personal profile] roadroller 2012-07-10 01:53 am (UTC)(link)
You mean "solving the mystery"? ♪
a_gentle_boy: (Embarrassment)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:56 am (UTC)(link)

I'll probably get killed pretty badly if I leave a note saying that I know who killed her, right?
roadroller: (Daughter of Evil)

[personal profile] roadroller 2012-07-10 02:05 am (UTC)(link)
[a shrug]

Maybe they'll send you to Port West. ... and fill it with Piranhas. ♪

[It may be an invitation for trouble. Still, Rin looks out the window thoughtfully.]

But you know, there's a 501 Mailbox here, too. ♪
a_gentle_boy: (Surprise)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 02:11 am (UTC)(link)
H-Hey... At least I'd die in the sun instead of in a lot of fog.

[Lucas will run towards the open door a little and glance out.]

...501? This is 501?

[He hadn't noticed.]

501... Ricardo. This is where the Smiths live in the future. Back in Mayfield.

[Rin gets up in a hurry at that.]

Seriously?! ♪

...I had no idea where they lived... I always thought they stayed hidden like the Mayor and so on. ♪

[A quick glance around the room.]

But they live here? ♪

[Rin holds up the newspaper clipping again.]

Maybe he is trying to tell us something important. ♪
a_gentle_boy: (Contemplative)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
No, they live right next door to Pokey. We were invited to their house once for a party...

[That had not been one of the best moments of his life. He recalls the sensation of having his face burned off with a grimace.]

Let's try to bring that back to Mayfield. I think it could be important.
roadroller: (kokoro)

[personal profile] roadroller 2012-07-10 02:37 am (UTC)(link)
All right, fine. ♪

[Rin folds the paper up and shoves it in her pocket.]

... I don't know how we'll get out of here though. This house looked like it was the only safe area. ♪
