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.)
theboywiththebook: (How could you?)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 01:12 am (UTC)(link)
B-But I can't! That's the problem! I went the way you told me and I just wound up back here!

[Henry's looking just as confused as Lucas here.]

How'd you manage to get back to the normal Mayfield?

[If you can call that normal.]
a_gentle_boy: (Question)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:14 am (UTC)(link)
It's --

[A pause. That man hadn't been able to see it, either. Lucas will make up his mind quickly. Seconds were precious here.]

Get on, Henry.

[He'll reach down to help the boy clamber up behind him.]
theboywiththebook: (sadness)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 01:19 am (UTC)(link)
[Henry takes Lucas's hand and pulls himself up onto the table.]

What's going on here? How come I couldn't find the exit...?
a_gentle_boy: (Mesmerized)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:22 am (UTC)(link)
I don't know, but you're not the first one. It's alright. I'll just take you each through myself. As long as one of us can see it, it's OK.

[...There's an oddly warm feeling coming from his pocket. Lucas will straighten up a little and begin to dig around.]
theboywiththebook: (disheartened)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 01:24 am (UTC)(link)
I just hope everyone can get out than....this whole town is falling apart.

[Henry is going to clutch his back pack. Like Lucas said, his notebook was important right now. It needed to make it back safely.]
a_gentle_boy: (Soft smile)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:28 am (UTC)(link)
I'll bring everyone back here myself if I have to. It's going to be OK. We'll make it.

[Lucas finishes scrounging in his pockets and removes one (1) used paddleball. ...How did that get in there? How did it even fit?]
theboywiththebook: (Huh?)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 01:32 am (UTC)(link)
I believe you...

[He really does.

But he curiously looks at the Paddleball toy.]

Where'd you get that?
a_gentle_boy: (Thoughtful)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:35 am (UTC)(link)

I won this back in Mayfield. Five or six days ago. I brought it with me here, but I threw it away the first day.

I'm not sure where it came from...
theboywiththebook: (calm)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
...When did you start seeing the way out? Was it the same time that you got that back?

[Because Henry is putting two and two together to get, MAGIC!]
a_gentle_boy: (Question)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 01:53 am (UTC)(link)

Well, I mean, I don't know when I got this back. But I saw it as soon as I walked into the back of the funhouse.
theboywiththebook: (what?)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 01:59 am (UTC)(link)
Do you think it's because of the paddle you can get out?

a_gentle_boy: (Question)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 02:02 am (UTC)(link)
I haven't found anyone else who could find it yet. I'll be sure to ask if they won anything from the carnival.

[Lucas doesn't think the reason is terribly important, but he's a little too rushed right now to consider that maybe this means people from Mayfield can get into this side with a carnival prize, too.]

There it is up ahead. Can you see it?

[He points straight forward. It's quite clear to him.]
theboywiththebook: (again?)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 02:11 am (UTC)(link)
It might be a good idea. We could figure out than how can get people back.

[Henry squints though towards the direction Lucas is pointing in. Nope, he see's nothing.]

No, nothing.
a_gentle_boy: (Thoughtful)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 02:15 am (UTC)(link)
Hm... I'll take us through. Hold on, Henry.

[And without slowing down, the table plunges through the sort of invisible hole in reality.]
theboywiththebook: (I tried telling you)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 02:18 am (UTC)(link)
[Once they pass through the invisible hole, Henry can see the light from the door on the other side.]

D-did we make it?
a_gentle_boy: (Conversation)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
Not unless something's changed!

[Emerging back out the other side, they emerge into a carnival that is thankfully not foggy at all. Lucas will stop the table.]

OK. You should let everyone know that you're back! And about what you've found, too. I'm going to head back inside for the others.
theboywiththebook: (crying)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 02:29 am (UTC)(link)
[When he see's the outside, Henry is just dumbstruck. He's out...but everyone was still back there. He almost wants to go charging in and help...but he has a feeling he can't do this. Lucas is the only one who can at the moment.

Collapsing off of the table, he kneels there. It's a little too much to finally be back, his eyes are starting to sting.

Looking back to Lucas he nods.]

All right...I will. Get everyone back safely, you may be the only one who can right now.
a_gentle_boy: (Cheerful)

[personal profile] a_gentle_boy 2012-07-10 02:35 am (UTC)(link)
I'll do everything I can.

[Lucas and his table are already backing up towards the rift.]

...Actually, you should go get something to eat first, Henry. It's good to finally be back here.

[He'll vanish in the blink of an eye, his last words lingering.]

I'll see you later!
theboywiththebook: (I dunno...)

[personal profile] theboywiththebook 2012-07-10 03:10 am (UTC)(link)
[Henry watches Lucas vanish from sight. Now that he's alone he sits there for a moment. Picking up his bag, he looks back to where Lucas was.]

I believe in you, Lucas...

[He soon leaves, intent on coming back in a bit to bring people food when they come back out.]
