Vicki nodded.

"Again, thanks for the heads up." She said.

"Now go do what you need to. I'm reasonably certain you don't need me to give you permission." She said after a moment or two.

After he was gone, she just sighed, heavily, before getting to her feet. He said she was locked in there, but she was curious... what did that mean, exactly? Was it the building? The wing? The room? There was no way for her to know, really, at least not without testing it.

So she made her way to the door, opened it, and debated stepping out, or trying to. See if that would work.

As she looked at the open door, someone walked past, and looked at her.

"..." they were silent, looking her up and down.

"Hello." they greeted her.

"How are you feeling today?" they asked.

"...please tell me you're not feeling chaotic, or like you've lost yourself." they then said further.

"You know what will happen if you try to step out of that room."

Vicki just sighed.

"Still gonna try." She said simply.

"Because simply put, I'm curious." She added.

"Am I actually locked in here, or can I leave?" She knew that he likely wouldn't know the answer, so she attempted to step out.

As soon as she tried to put her foot through the doorway, she was hit with a blast of mana.

It didn't hurt her, and it was localised to her, but it was a massive pulse that caused her to be flung back several feet.

And she landed harshly on her ass.

The one that had seen her winced when they saw this.

"Ooooh..." they murmured.

"Are you all right?" they asked her.

Vicki was silent for a moment before getting to her feet.

"Yeah... yeah, I think so." She answered.

"Never liked being so locked down, either." She muttered. "But at least now I know."

"You ok?" She asked. "Like... I think that was localised to me, but I just want to make sure."

They nodded in response.

"Yeah." they said.

"I felt a little pressure, but I'm okay." they told her.

They then paused for a moment, looking her over.

"...you seem... different." they commented, scratching at their chin. "A little more composed than as of late." they continued.

"Something happen?"

"Plenty, but nevermind that for the moment." Vicki stated before pausing a moment.

"Actually... tell me... what do you know about what happened to the world? Your thoughts, opinions... whatever." She then said.

"I don't care if it's just an opinion, I just want to know what you believe to be true and the like. If you'd oblige me."

The person looked... extremely confused for a moment. They had this look that stated that they felt like she should already know this. Which meant two things; the first being that they didn't know the 'swap' had taken place, and the second being that they were decently close to her. Or to Vic, anyway.

"Er... all right..." they said.

"What happened? People started changing. They started to become more feral. Less rational. Until they finally seemed to become animals... and then their bodies changed. They started being able to absorb mana from other people." he told her. "Other living things." he said further.

"As for my opinions... the road to Hell is paved with good intentions." he then told her.

"Do I think this was started by your sister and Kiah Remmington? Yes." he said.

"Do I think they intended for this? Hell no." he insisted.

"...I want to believe that Alice is still out there, though. I want to see her again. If nothing else... so I can finally tell her what I've wanted to for a while..." he then admitted, which was when Vicki truly recognised him.

He looked far different, but this was a man that both she and Alice knew. His name was Taylor, and it seemed like he had developed a crush on Alice.

Vicki was silent for a moment, just blinking at him.

"WAit... Taylor!?" She asked.

"Jesus Christ you look rough, dude." She added before pausing.

".... Do you have any idea what was happening in here?" She asked, motioning to the room she was locked within.

Taylor was stunned for a moment, almost shocked by her reaction and questions.

"...what?" he muttered.

"Well, I remember that you told me that you were... wait..." he then mumbled, before stepping forward quickly, but stopping at the doorframe.

"Wait, wait, wait." he repeated.

"You were saying that you were going to try and bring your past self here!" he recalled, showing her that Vic had trusted Taylor with the information, at least.

"Is... did you... did SHE... succeed?" he asked.

"Are you... Vicki from the past?" he asked further.

"Yeah. From the day after you were telling me you wanted to ask my sister out, but couldn't, at any point, find anything for actually DOING it. Like, she was too busy and you didn't want to interrupt." Vicki commented.

"Hi." She added.

".... it's good to see you're still alive." She added after a moment or two, her voice a bit quieter.

Taylor looked away for a moment, clearly flustered and embarrassed, before clearing his throat slightly and looking back at her.

"Hi." he responded.

"And yeah... yeah, I'm alive." he said.

"And the barrier on that door is supposed to prevent any with the 'infection' from getting out." he then explained. "The reason you're allowed to stay here is mostly that, and how you are... or she was... whatever... working on a solution to this mess of a world we find ourselves in." he said further.

"Regardless... she was successful..." he mumbled.

"Maybe there IS some hope..."

"Well, as far as I know, I'm here to find where this all went south, and then go back and stop that from happening." Vicki told him.

"I assume that Ash knows how to send me back, as well" She added after a few seconds.

"But... yeah. I'm here to hopefully stop this world from happening. All I can do is try."

"I think he does." Taylor responded.

He then paused and looked around, before stepping through the doorway.

"Admittedly, he and Vic talking about it seemed like more theory and such." he admtted.

"...weird to hear him called 'Ash' though." he then said. "He usually went by 'Jo'." he informed her further.

"Anyway... I'm sorry you have to see this world." he apologised to her.

"It's... horrible, to understate it." he finished, his tone heavy.

"Jo..?" Vicki asked.

"Huh. Didn't expect him to adopt his middle name at any point in time." She added. She had to admit though, she wasn't too surprised.

"Anyway.... I... do you know anything about Alice..? Like where she could be?"

Taylor shook his head.

"No." he said.

"I don't." he lamented.

"If I did, I'd be trying to go there. I have to find her. She has to know that not everyone blames her for this, or wants to harm her or exact revenge or justice or whatever." he said further.

"...I've been trying to find her, too." he then went on.

"But every time I try and scry, it just points back here. I suspect that the barriers are messing with the scrying and just causing it to hone in here." he shrugged.

"It could be the presence of this body being the interference too." Vicki commented with a light shake of her head.

"Want me to see ifI can get a feel for where she is? I mean, no promises." She added.

"I ... don't know how her mana may be now, but I reason it shouldn't be TOO hard... maybe?"

"If you want to." Taylor replied.

"Anyway... I should go." he then said.

"I need to make sure the barriers and barricades are holding firm." he told her.

"General security stuff at this point. Life-or-death, but... general security." he sighed.

"I hope you succeed." he then said further, making his way back to the door.

"This accursed world needs to die."

Vicki was silent for a moment before nodding.

"I..." She started.

"I'm sorry." She added. "I didn't mean to distract you." She added.

"But... go do what you need to. I'll see if I can get any sort of idea as to where my sister is."

Taylor shook his head.

"Don't apologise." he said.

"I still have time. It's why I came by here." he told her.

"To see how Vic was doing. And... well, it ended up being how YOU were doing." he reasoned.

"Regardless, the barriers and such are fine, we just check up on them routinely, and everything was 100% last check." he assured her.

"Anyway, good luck." he finished.
