Sonic Future 100 - Billionaire Birthday Blues -3
Part 3
  Everyone was gathered by the bathroom door as Shadic laid Raika’s body on the floor, Nonee holding a lit candle. She looked horrified, “Raika. Oh my word. Who could have done something like this?”
Dirk spoke as he looked at the soaking body, her eyes and mouth frozen open in fear, “He’s sick, whoever he is. Poor girl.”
Shadic rubbed his chin, “Yes, just like Steve, then the attempt on Demon. All drowning. It seems the killer prefers it that way, though I can’t be sure why.”
Michael looked afraid, “Then it’s like Dirk said before. He’s a serial killer. A mad-man killing randomly!”
Clinton spoke, “And look at how wet she is. She’s soaked from head to toe. She had to have struggled a lot.” He sighed as he looked around the room, “In fact, it seems everything is wet. He certainly wasn’t squeamish.”
Shadic lifted her wrist, “She also has markings on he

  As Shadic and Demon stood with the body, the others rushed over. Clinton was the first one down by Steve’s body, “What’s wrong? Is he ok? Steve, answer me!”
Shadic spoke, “It’s no use. I’m afraid he’s already dead.”
Clinton was as horrified as the others, “What!? What happened!?”
Demon spoke, “We’re not exactly sure. We just found him in the fountain.”
Shadic stood up and looked at the fountain, “If I had to guess, I’d say someone held his head underwater until he drowned.”
Clinton spoke, “What are you saying? That’s crazy!”
Donald joined in, “Yeah, come on! Steve was alive just moments ago!”
Shadic looked serious, “Was alive is right. Someone had to have killed him within the last ten minutes. Which means that whoever did it is probably one of the guests here.”
Nonee was horrified, “Who would do such a terribl

Billionaire Birthday Blues

Part 1
  “Happy birthday to yoooooou!” The mansion was full of guests as the birthday girl blew out her twenty-four candles and everyone clapped. She was a lovely young brown chipmunk woman all dressed in red with short wavy hair. Her green eyes sparkled with glee.
A large chipmunk man walked over with a smile, “Happy birthday, my dear!”
The young woman giggled, “Thank you, father, you’re the best!”
The man smiled at the guests, “Thank you all so much for coming to my beautiful daughter’s birthday party! I must be the luckiest father in the world, not to mention the proudest! On behalf of Gilmore Enterprises, I thank you all!” Everything clapped, including a pair of familiar young hedgehogs.
Shadic the Hedgehog, better known as Detective Shadow Quill, and his best friend and partner, Demon Death the Hedgehog, clapped as they watched the festivities. T

~ Assassination ~
  Deep within a secret lair in the far north, a meeting was called into place. The red banner above the large round table had a black skull with a violet symbol meaning death on it. Around the table sat several people, all wearing black robes with hoods hiding their faces in shadow and violet markings along the hems.
At the head of table was a man who held a long black staff with a skull at the top holding a large violet orb in its jaw. He spoke to everyone there, “Welcome, my brothers and sisters of the Order of Assassins! I call you all here tonight to discuss a problem our order is faced with.”
A screen came up next to him and showed several pictures of one familiar cyan-blue hedgehog. He spoke as he pointed to one of the pictures with his staff, “This is BR the Battle Robot. We have been trying to assassinate him the request of a very special client that will

Vampire of Emeralias ~ Happy Birthday, Ruby
VAMPIRE OF EMERALIAS
Happy Birthday, Ruby
  The kingdom of Emerlias was full of music and joy as the people celebrated a special day. It was the birthday of their lovely Queen Ruby. It was quite a celebration for everyone, especially the royal family.
That morning, Queen Ruby walked through the town, waving to everyone who greeted her warmly. Many played music for her, knowing how much she loved it, while others offered her gifts from their wares, some being jewelry they made or foods they served. Ruby couldn’t help how wonderful it felt to see how much her people loved her. After all, they all knew what all she did for them over the years, especially during the reign of the evil Devilish Death.
Soon, Ruby reached the beautiful building that was Max’s bakery. It was a large, white two-story building with gold-colored accents and large rounded windows. Out in front of the bakery sat about four round white tables with yellow umbrellas out the centers. Ruby always

   It was a very hot summer day in New Mobotropolis. Everyone did everything they could to stay cool, but it was a challenge. There wasn’t even the slightest breeze while the scorching sun beat down on anyone who dared be outdoors.
One of the people who took the sun’s challenge was the young news reporter who had to report the event. He was a handsome black hedgehog with purple spines and bangs. He smiled at the camera, trying to ignore the heat, “So, this makes today the hottest day in the last fifty years, so my advise is to stay indoors and drink plenty of water.”
He winked his blue eye at the camera, “This is Adriano the Hedgehog, signing out! Take care, viewers!”

    Malachi yawned as he sat in class. He watched Silver do a new spell they were learning that day. It was a twinkling wind spell, capable of removing fake appearances from anyone it hits.
Holly noticed Malachi looked bored, “Is there something you would like to share, Mr. Grim?”
Malachi shrugged, “Nothing. I’m just peachy. What could be better than learning something like ‘twinkling wind’?”
Holly could easily catch the sarcasm, “Were you expecting something else from a mystic class?”
Malachi sighed, “I just notice how all these lessons are about spells like this. Aren’t there any spells for defense or attack? Something useful for a fight?”
Holly crossed her arms behind her back, “If that’s what you were looking for, you should have joined the sorcerer vocation, Mr. Grim. Sorcerers are fighters, mystics are healers.”

Though, as he walked into the living room, he stopped. He was surprised to find more than just gifts there. He couldn’t believe his eyes.
There stood a woman with long red hair and wearing lovely Christmas-themed clothes. Leo walked over, “Mom?”
She turned to him, her eyes a beautiful blue and red painting her lips, and she smiled, “Darling, you’re awake!” She looked at the boxes under the tree, “I don’t recall buying so many gifts. Maybe I miscounted?”
To her surprise, Leo hugged her. She smiled, “Oh dearest.”

He walked towards the basement door, but stopped. The voices weren’t coming from down there. He looked over at the back door, “Tattletail went outside?” He felt a bit annoyed with himself, “Why doesn’t that sound wrong to me anymore? This thing is a toy, yet it wanders around at night and talks and seems to understand like it’s alive. This should not feel so casual.”

However, when he tried to turn on the light, it wouldn’t work. He was surprised, “Did the bulb burn out?” He climbed down and looked around the basement, “Weird. None of the lights are working.”

Five Nights Until Christmas
   The sun had just set behind the horizon from the view of the lovely tropical street. Gorgeous houses or enormous mansions lined the street. It was clear only the rich were lucky enough to live in such a place. In fact, no one on that street even had kids. Rich, famous couples or single stars lived on Malu Street, called the Street of Gold.
That is, all except one house. In this house was sixteen year old Leo Klark, a goth whose only reason for being on Malu Street was his rich, famous actress mother, who had adopted him four years prior. He was alone that late December night, even while it felt like late August. He even sat in front of a fan with a tank top and shorts for bed. His wavy black hair was even pinned back from where it usually hung in his face, which was pale as a sheet with dark circles under his silver eyes.
He sighed as he spoke to his mother on the phone that night, “Yes, I

Sir Magnut, the other mystics and their mentors, Amir, and Espin were there with them. Rick had given a full description of how everything came to this point, including how his father made Locke swear not to say anything.
Sir Magnut sighed, "It is a pity your parents would force you, and Locke, into such a position."
Amir spoke, "That explains why he couldn't do all the spells he should have been able to do when he arrived, including the fairy light that would have fended off that Phantom Wolf."
Holly sighed, “And how he could do a magic that his brother could not.”
Rick nodded, "Yeah. The fairy light was Justin's specialty. I've honestly never even used magic before Justin died, and I only did afterwards because Locke insisted. He had me practice different spells just so it wasn't painfully obvious I knew

Malachi was sitting in the window as he looked out at the world beyond while Murk spoke to him. Justin was simply sitting with Locke, both whispering among themselves, at the other side of the room.
Silver smiled, "Hi, everyone!"
Murk looked at her, "That makes three. This class has four students, correct?"
Malachi nodded, "Ay, two boys and two girls."
Silver walked over, "Are we really still early?"
Locke grinned, "Miss Holly arrives in class at the exact chime of ten, thus class starts immediately. Anyone not in the room when she arrives is officially late."
Just then, Mindy hurried in, "I'm here!" She was followed by her mentor, Olivia.
Olivia gave a short curtsy, "Hello, everyone."

Rakar's Dark Secrets
Rakar sat on a small balcony, eyes directed toward the singers in the ballroom below but not fully taking them in. Nobles from all over the kingdom and several dignitaries from Cosium’s allies had come to attend his ascension to the regency. After five straight hours of socializing, he’d asked for a reprieve. It was amazing how tired one could get just standing around doing nothing but talking. He’d come up here to avoid being disturbed, but he could still see Athena and her sons mingling and accepting a constant string of condolences from their guests.
There was one thing that took away from his enjoyment of the occasion—that it only took place because his brother was dead.
“Lord Rakar, I’m glad you agreed to meet me. I appreciate the fact you didn’t post any guards.”
Make that two things.

Let's have a nice little chat with Zev Gwydion the Hexxed from my "Meeting the Family" series! =D
Meeting the Family Characters by SonicRanger-1

1. What is your real name and nickname?

Don't know what my real name was, but I was given the name Zev when I was adopted by the Gwydion family! No nickname. Can't really just much shorter than Zev.

2. Interesting, what is your current age?

About 25. Again, I was adopted after being reborn as a Hexxed, so there's really no knowing how old I really am.

3. What is your favorite food?

Baaaaacccooooooon...

4. And your favorite drink?

Just water. I was always really hyperactive, being the pup of the family, so ma raised me to drink loads of water to stay hydrated. 

5. Confession time, who is your lover?

Never had one. Just haven't met the right girl yet.

6. Have you kissed anyone yet?

Uh, yes actually. You see, being a Breeded, things like a kiss don't mean anything to us. It's not sacred. So, when a girl who really liked me when I was little asked if I could be her first kiss, I didn't really understand the significance of it when I said yes. So, yeah, I've kissed someone, but not because I was in love or anything. Once we were older and she came to understand, she still said she preferred it were me either way. She reeeeaaaaally liked me.

7. Do you have a childhood sweetheart?

Nope, but I've had a girl see me as her childhood sweetheart. In fact, while she may claim she doesn't have feelings for me anymore, even I can see she clearly does. Sadly, I don't feel anything for her still, meaning she's not meant to be my mate.

8. Who is your favorite author?

You've probably never heard of her. She's from the Sahaja Realm. You know, the magic-less realm. Her name is Linda or Olivia or something like that, and I can't remember her last name, but she writes really cool novels about magic, even if they aren't exactly accurate. For example, she writes a lot about vampires, but real vampires aren't like the ones she writes about. Still being fun to read anyways.

9. What is your biggest fear?

To be totally honest, I don't really have one. Ma always used to say I didn't know the meaning of fear. I guess being a Hexxed, someone who was so pure of heart when they died that they were reborn, can do that. I can be scared, sure, but not in a way that you'd call it fear.

10. Any siblings?

Yep! They're my oldest brother Ivan "Valdamar"(I sometimes call his Ivy), then Uriel "Donovan"(I always call him Donny), my sweet sisters Nyoka and Nisha, and then lastly me! Oh! And I did get a new younger brother recently! He's a Hexxed like me named Ulric who was adopted just like I was! Him I'm gonna have to keep an eye on.

11. Who is your worst enemy?

..uh... can I pass? I'd... rather not talk about it. Let's just say, I have one. Or at least, I had one.

12. Huh, okay. Who is your best friend?

While I've made lots of awesome friends over the years, Lobo with always be my best one. He's the most loyal friend I've ever had, not to mention the most reliable. You'd be amazed how many times the guy has saved my tail, or been my voice of reason. Now that we're older and "wiser", he's been a lot more chill, mostly sleeping out or watching the rest of the world go by. Just know, he wasn't always more wolf than human.

13. What would you do if you met your creator?

Honestly, I'd ask them about my past family. I know I told my family it didn't matter anymore, but I can't help wondering sometimes. Tala found hers years ago, Lobo even remembered his, but me... nothing. Is it wrong to be curious who I once was? After all, I was someone so pure-hearted and good that I actually earned a second life. I just wonder what kind of person I was to deserve something like that.

14. What do you want to be when you're grown up?

Well, I've only ever told Nyoka and ma this, but... I've kinda always wanted to be a dad. I don't know, everyone says I'm really good with kids, and I really love kids, so I always thought it'd be neat.

15. What is your worst nightmare?

As I have said before, fear isn't really something I have, but I have had bad dreams. The worst of them is where someone of my family comes to hate me. Whether it's my brothers or sisters, my parents, or my nieces and nephews, or even my friends Lobo and Tala. To have them hate me... it's the most painful feeling in the world to me.

16. What is your life long dream?

I guess it's to one day adopt a kid and raise them into a great individual.

17. What would you do if your dream came true?

I'd be the best a father I could be, and I would be prouder than ever in my life of my kid, or kids.

18. Okay, where is your favorite place to relax?

At home. I know it may seem like a dump, mostly cause it really is, but its a cozy, homey dump.

19. Last question, what do you do most of the time?

Hang with friends or family. Family means the world to me, as it does to all Hexxed. At least, all good Hexxed.

20. Done! Now tag (awe)some people!

Because I'm tired, I'mma just tag whoever reads this. ^^; I'm reeeeaaally sleepy. Night-night.

After all, I was someone so pure-hearted and good that I actually earned a second life. I just wonder what kind of person I was to deserve something like that.

14. What do you want to be when you're grown up?

Well, I've only ever told Nyoka and ma this, but... I've kinda always wanted to be a dad. I don't know, everyone says I'm really good with kids, and I really love kids, so I always thought it'd be neat.

15. What is your worst nightmare?

As I have said before, fear isn't really something I have, but I have had bad dreams. The worst of them is where someone of my family comes to hate me. Whether it's my brothers or sisters, my parents, or my nieces and nephews, or even my friends Lobo and Tala. To have them hate me... it's the most painful feeling in the world to me.

16. What is your life long dream?

I guess it's to one day adopt a kid and raise them into a great individual.

17. What would you do if your dream came true?

I'd be the best a father I could be, and I would be prouder than ever in my life of my kid, or kids.

18. Okay, where is your favorite place to relax?

At home. I know it may seem like a dump, mostly cause it really is, but its a cozy, homey dump.

19. Last question, what do you do most of the time?

Hang with friends or family. Family means the world to me, as it does to all Hexxed. At least, all good Hexxed.

20. Done! Now tag (awe)some people!

Because I'm tired, I'mma just tag whoever reads this. ^^; I'm reeeeaaally sleepy. Night-night.

Part 3

  Everyone was gathered by the bathroom door as Shadic laid Raika’s body on the floor, Nonee holding a lit candle. She looked horrified, “Raika. Oh my word. Who could have done something like this?”
Dirk spoke as he looked at the soaking body, her eyes and mouth frozen open in fear, “He’s sick, whoever he is. Poor girl.”
Shadic rubbed his chin, “Yes, just like Steve, then the attempt on Demon. All drowning. It seems the killer prefers it that way, though I can’t be sure why.”
Michael looked afraid, “Then it’s like Dirk said before. He’s a serial killer. A mad-man killing randomly!”
Clinton spoke, “And look at how wet she is. She’s soaked from head to toe. She had to have struggled a lot.” He sighed as he looked around the room, “In fact, it seems everything is wet. He certainly wasn’t squeamish.”
Shadic lifted her wrist, “She also has markings on her wrists and ankles. She was tied up. The killer seemed to have held her captive somewhere. There’s also still a mark on her face from where duct tape once covered her mouth. Why he kept her alive is anyone’s guess, but it doesn’t look like she’s been dead very long.”
Michael looked away, “Gosh, poor Raika. Why would anyone commit such an atrocity?”
Shadic glanced at them, “Say, isn’t this the bathroom you used with Nonee and Donald?”
Michael looked at him, “Yes.”
Shadic was curious, “Well, do any of you remember seeing or hearing anything unusual when you went?”
Nonee shook her head, “No, not me.”
Michael sighed, “We took turns, of course. When no one was using the bathroom, the other two were waiting outside. Though, I don’t remember anything suspicious. After Nonee and I finished, Donald suggested that we go make coffee so we both went to the kitchen, but I’m not sure what happened after that.”
Clinton glanced coldly at Donald, “I get it now. That’s how you managed to break away from the others so you could kill Raika, isn’t it, Donald?”
Donald was surprised, “What? Clinton, stop it!”
Clinton continued, “It probably took them a good six minutes to make the coffee! That would give you just enough time to retrieve Raika from where you had her tied up and bring her back to the bathroom and murder her. Tell me if I’m getting warmer, Donald. Is that how it happened?”
Donald was horrified, “No! Not true! I swear, I didn’t do it!”
Shadic sighed, “Afraid it’s not that simple.” They looked at him as he continued, “This is more Demon’s field, but I can tell she’s been dead at least an hour, maybe two. That means she had to have been murdered somewhere between 5am and 6am, but Donald used the bathroom just a few minutes ago. He couldn’t have done it. The same can be said to back up Nonee and Michael. They just disappeared for five minutes to make coffee, but the murder took place between 5 and 6 and they were with me in the other room from 4 to 7.”
He stood up and faced them, “Nonee, Donald, and Michael were all with me, which narrows down the suspects to two people. The two who were unaccounted for during the time of the murder, Clinton and Dirk.”
Clinton smirked, “Huh. Well, if that’s true, then you have your man. Dirk here has to be the murderer because I didn’t do it.”
Dirk spoke, looking very suspicious of Clinton, “Now, Clinton, I was in my room the whole time, but I saw you sneak out of your room and go somewhere at 6am, the time of the murder.”
Donald gasped, “Clinton, is that true?”
Clinton spoke, “Yes, I was feeling tired, so I went to wash my face in the bathroom on the second floor.”
Dirk wasn’t buying it, “I wonder. The second floor bathroom is right next to the stairway. You didn’t happen to take a little detour to commit murder now did you, Clinton?”
Clinton was highly offended, “Of course not!” He sighed, “But you’re right, Copeland. No one can account for my whereabouts during the time of the murder, but guess what?” He pointed accusingly at Dirk, “The same goes for you! I never saw you once the entire time we were upstairs! You could have been anywhere at anytime!”
Shadic sighed, sounding annoyed, “Enough, children, you’re not helping the matter.” That made them stop. Shadic went down next to the body, “Now be quiet so I can think.” They did as they were told.
Shadic pulled out his feather quill as he thought to himself, ”If the time of death was between 5 and 6, then it is most likely that one of those two standing there is the murderer.”
He looked over Raika’s clothes, “Though, one thing still bothers me. How did her clothes get so wet? She’s soaked from head to toe. She wouldn’t get that wet no matter how hard she struggled.”
He looked at her feet, which wore soaking wet socks, and was surprised as he looked at something near the rope marks on her legs, ”Wait, there are tape marks on her legs too. Now why would the killer tape her legs if she was already tied in rope?”
Michael spoke up, “Uh, detective, I have a question.” Shadic glanced at him as he spoke, “I still can’t understand how the killer managed to hold Raika hostage all night. We searched every inch of this house, twice! How could we have missed Raika if she was tied up somewhere? It doesn’t make sense!”
Shadic sighed, “That is true. She should have turned up. Our group was the one that searched this bathroom. It was perfectly clean at that time. Everything was in order.”
Donald nodded, “Yeah, and no Raika. The tub was empty.”
Michael spoke, “Then he must have kept her somewhere outside, like maybe in the woods.”
Shadic shook his head, “Doubt it. The killer needed a place that was easy to get to, like maybe in the trunk of a car. It wouldn’t be hard for the killer to get to one of the cars parked out back.” He turned to Clinton and Dirk, “You two shouldn’t have gone off on your own. Now neither of you can account for where you’ve been.” Both of them looked a both worried.
Shadic looked back at the body, still thinking, ”I wonder though. While the attack on Demon makes this seem like a twisted murder spree, somehow I just don’t buy it. One thing I don’t understand is why the killer kept Raika hostage. He murdered her, so why didn’t he just do it right away? And why choose the bathroom? Why here? If the killer really had Raika stashed in the trunk of a car, why would he bring her all the way in here? There would be less chance of being seen if he used the fountain outside, like with Steve.”
He walked over to the tub and, using a tissue, turned on the water, ”More than that, he wouldn’t have had to fill up the tub.” To his surprise, the water came out of the shower head mounted on the wall instead of the faucet. He was confused as he turned it off, ”Wait, the shower nozzle is on?”
Then it hit him, “Oh wait. I get it now.” He looked down at Raika’s body, ”So that’s his game. He created a trick of time. Why didn’t I see it before? It makes perfect sense now.”
Michael spoke, “Did you learn something, detective?”
Shadic looked over the body, “The drenched clothing, the tape marks on the legs, the reason he attacked Demon earlier, and the reason he held Raika captive and then killed her at a later time.” He looked serious, “I see it now. The common thread linking it all together.” He looked over the confused faces, ”So you’re the one who killed two of your supposed friends and almost killed mine.”
Shadic ran his fingers over his quill as he sat on the edge of the tub, “Though, how to bust him for sure. I need proper evidence.” Though, he was a bit surprised when he slipped, almost falling back in the tub of water. It was Nonee who caught his hand, helping him get his balance back.
She spoke, “Careful there, dear. You don’t want to get wet.”
Then it hit Shadic, “Get wet. That must be it.” He stood up, “I know who the killer is.” Everyone was surprised.
Shadic spoke, “That’s right, I figured it out, but to verify, I need you all to cooperate and please take off your jackets, tossing them over here.”
Clinton scoffed, “This is ridiculous!”
Donald spoke, “Clinton, please! We have to remember that this is for Raika! If handing our coats over will help him nab the killer, then why not?” Clinton groaned and pulled off his coat. The other guys all did the same.
Clinton spoke once they were done, “There, I hope you’re satisfied. Now check the coats and tell us who did it.”
Shadic spoke, “No.”
Dirk was surprised, “What? Why not?”
Shadic looked them over, noticing different wet areas on their clothes. Once he saw them all, he smirked, “So I was right.”
He spoke, “First, one of you murdered Steven Sloan by drowning him in the fountain outside, then you drugged my best friend and carried him into the kitchen to attempt drowning him in the sink, and finally you killed Raika Gilmore right here in this bathroom. You’ve had a busy evening, isn’t that right…” He pointed, “Donald Hilbler!” Everyone was shocked, including Donald.
Clinton looked at Donald, unsure now, “Well, Donald? Is this the truth?”
Donald shook his head, “What? No! That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard! Come on, detective, do I look like a killer?”
Shadic scoffed, “You’d be very surprised, Donald.” He ran the feather of his quill under his chin, “Let’s go back to the first murder. If you remember, we were all in the woods looking for Raika. Steve was still alive at the time.” He looked over at Clinton and Dirk, “Now then, if I recall correctly, he was with the same search party as Donald and Dirk.”
Dirk nodded, “Yes, that’s right.”
Shadic continued, “And the three of you then decided to split up in the woods, so you could cover more ground. Once Dirk was out of sight, Donald doubled back and rejoined Steve in the woods and the two set off to the fountain together. He probably told Steve that he saw someone suspicious by the fountain. Once there, Donald made his move and attacked Steve from behind, drowning him.”
Donald spoke, “It sounds to me like you’re reaching, detective. After all, Dirk was in the woods too. Why not him? Besides, it’s absurd that I would kill Steve and Raika, but it’s even more preposterous that I would attack your friend Demon. I didn’t know him until last night, remember? And wasn’t I with you when the power went out right before he was attacked? How could I have turned the power off? It doesn’t make sense. I would have needed an accomplice to do something like that, wouldn’t I? Are you saying that more than one of us was in on it?”
Shadic shrugged, “No. It wasn’t necessary to have someone turn the power out. You did that on your own. You did it by turning on all of the air conditioners and appliances at once.” Donald was surprised.
Shadic explained, “It wouldn’t be hard to do this. You just had to preset all the air conditioners in the house to come on at the same time, the time that you wanted the blackout to occur. The next step was to turn the microwave on and set the timer so it was running when all of the ACs kicked on. Having the microwave running and all the ACs turning on at once was sufficient to cause an overload and trip the breakers, and there’s proof of this. All the AC remotes are still set to half past midnight, the time of the blackout. And I remember hearing a strange sound after the power went out. It was something like a bell. No doubt that was the timer going off on the microwave. It still counts down even when the power’s off. I wasn’t sure until I felt it later and it was still warm from being on so long.”
Donald spoke up, “Wait a second-”
Shadic spoke, “Now then, when the blackout occurred, you smashed out the window in the hallway to make us think that the killer had escaped and bolted off into the woods. You knew that we would probably follow and we did. You used the opportunity to carry Demon from the sitting room to the kitchen, where you tried to drown him in the sink. Though, before you did that, you drugged his coffee with sleeping pills to make sure he wouldn’t struggle. While Demon was getting groggy, you were searching for Raika with me. We had just finished searching in the kitchen right before the blackout. That’s when you doubled back and turned the microwave on, a little added insurance if the power surge would be enough to trip the breakers.”
Donald spoke up, “But aren’t you forgetting something? I was with you when Raika was killed. We were in the other room together. How could I have murdered Raika if I was playing cards with you this morning? You said she was killed between 5am and 6am, so I’m in the clear.” He smiled hopefully, “Surely the same person is responsible for all three incidents, don’t you think? There can’t be two killers on the loose. I hate to disappoint you, but you have the wrong guy.”
Michael spoke, “Donald’s right, detective. He was with us. You said yourself that Raika was killed between five and six, and we were both together with Donald from three to seven. And there’s something else that doesn’t add up either. You said earlier that the killer drugged Demon’s coffee, but I don’t understand how. When Nonee served the coffee, we all chose randomly from her tray, including Demon. How did the killer know he was going to pick that particular cup? It seems like anyone could have picked it up, even the killer himself.”
Shadic sighed, “Yes, you’re right, Michael. The killer could have picked it, but the solution for him was simple. He didn’t drink any coffee.”
Michael shook his head, “But that doesn’t explain how he drugged Demon. How did he arrange for him to get that cup.”
Shadic leaned back against the sink, “That’s just it, Michael, he didn’t have to arrange it. The killer didn’t care who drank it.” They all gasped.
Clinton spoke up first, “Are you saying the killer didn’t care who his next victim was!?”
Shadic nodded, “Exactly. It could have been anyone of us. Whoever was unlucky enough to drink from that cup. It didn’t matter if it was a man or woman, younger or older since they’d be too drowsy to fight, isn’t that right, Donald?” He glanced at Donald.
Nonee was horrified, “So these are random murders after all.”
Donald looked at his friends, “Guys, if that doesn’t clear me, I don’t know what will. Come on, do I seem the kind of guy who would randomly kill one of you with no motive at all?”
Shadic spoke, “No, you don’t, but I don’t believe that you ever meant to kill the person you drugged. You see, if you would have really wanted to kill Demon, you would have never carried him into the kitchen. You would have just done it. This says it was different. You just wanted a witness. Someone to say they were held underwater by their assailant.” Donald gasped as Shadic continued, “You wanted to establish the killer’s MO was forcibly drowning his victims. You thought if you had a witness to testify to this, that people would assume Raika was killed in the same way.”
Michael was surprised, “What do you mean by that?”
Clinton spoke, “I don’t understand. Raika wasn’t drowned?”
Shadic sighed, “No, Raika drowned all right. I’m saying she was drowned differently. That she wasn’t forcibly held underwater. Think about the way things unfolded. Raika turned up missing last night a little after 10pm, but it’s clear that she was murdered somewhere between five and six am. Doesn’t it seem strange that the killer waited seven or eight hours to commit the murder.” He pointed at the body, “And why are Raika’s clothes all completely soaked through? She would never get that wet, no matter how hard she struggled to keep her head up.”
Then he motioned to her ankles, “Then there are the other tape marks. Why would the killer bind her with tape when she was already tied up with rope?” He pointed up, “The answer to this puzzle lies above. I’m talking about the shower.”
Dirk was surprised, “The shower?”
Shadic nodded, “That’s right. Where I come from, people use the faucet to fill up a tub. It’s only common sense, but when I turned it on a bit ago, the water came out the shower head, not the faucet. This means the killer filled the tub with the shower head, that way the tub filled up quietly. Once the shower head was submerged, it was totally silent. He used the duct tape to secure Raika to the bottom of the tub so she would drown automatically when the water got high enough.” They all looked quite horrified by the disturbing thought.
Shadic continued, “When Raika was coming down from her room last night after ten o’clock, Donald must have grabbed her and knocked her out, then carried her right here to this tub, where he rigged up his little trick. He carefully adjusted the flow of the water so she wouldn’t actually die until five or six the next morning. Of course, he made sure he was with us at that time so he’d have a perfect alibi. He returned at seven am, and when he sent the others off to make the coffee, he disposed of the tape on Raika’s body. A simple operation by itself, but with the other plot, it was a real juggling act.”
Clinton was surprised, “Other plot?”
Shadic nodded, “That’s right. Not only did he have Raika in the tub, but he also had to worry about creating the black out and getting away with the fake drowning attempt in the kitchen. He had his hands full alright, and then there was the possibility that Raika would be found in the tub and then all his efforts would have be in vain. No doubt he was sweating over that one. He had shorted the lights out in that area so nobody would want to use that bathroom, but when we conducted the search, his plans were in jeopardy. He was skating on thin ice as we searched the bathroom, but he cleverly made sure that he was the one to check the tub, which had a cover on at the time.”
He glanced at Donald, his face serious, “The fact that he was the one who checked the bathtub is also a clear indicator that he’s the perpetrator.”
Donald looked nervous, “I guess that would be true if Raika was really killed in the way you described, but there’s no proof of that. It’s all clever guesswork. It’s a fascinating theory alright, and the way you put it is very believable, but no one saw me do any of the things you say I did.”
Shadic nodded, “You’re right. I needed proof.” He pointed at the jackets on the floor, “That’s why I had all of you remove your jackets.”
Donald was getting impatient, “Then hurry up and check them for goodness sake! Come on! But you won’t find what you’re looking for, I guarantee it!”
Shadic looked cold, “No.”
Donald was mad now, “Why not?!”
Shadic was calm and collected, “Because I didn’t have you take off your jackets so I could check them. I actually wanted to check your shirts for water stains. That’s my proof.” Donald was shocked.
Shadic explained, “The stains on Michael’s sleeves got there when he washed his hands after using the bathroom. The water on Clinton’s collar is from when he went to wash his face in the sink. Donald, you have water stains halfway up your sleeves on both sides. How did you get those?”
Donald was really nervous now, “What, these? The same way those two got theirs!”
Shadic was far from convinced, “Really, then why aren’t they in the same place? Come on, Donald, you didn’t get those washing your face or hands. The only way you could get those watermarks there is if you took your jacket off. That’s right, you took your jacket off. Why? Because you didn’t want it to get wet when you pulled Raika’s body out of the tub. Isn’t that right. Donald?” Donald didn’t say a word. Shadic continued, “And the watermarks are halfway up your arm because you had them rolled up. Correct me if I’m wrong.”
Clinton was pained to see the anger in his friend’s face as he still didn’t speak, “But why, Donald? Why would you do such a thing?”
Shadic spoke when Donald still wouldn’t, “In each of the murders, his victim was drowned. This is no coincidence. I’m sure it had something to do with the accident that occurred at sea two years ago.”
Donald finally spoke, “Yes. It had something to do with that alright, but it was no accident.” He looked angry, “Sonia was murdered by Raika and Steve!” The others were surprised.
Donald continued angrily, “I can still see it clear as day. I can even taste the salt in my mouth as I yelled at Sonia to come back. She said that she had her life vest and she’d be fine. She packed a vest to bring Raika. Sonia didn’t know that Steve was on the island too. Raika and Steve both had life vests on when they were rescued later. Neither of them had one on when they left the boat.”
Dirk was shocked, “So, you mean…”
Clinton understood, “Sonia’s vest.”
Donald yelled angrily, “They took it! They took hers and the one she brought for Raika and the left her to die! Sonia left to save Raika and they killed her!” He turned away, “And they both lied about it. When the rescue team found Sonia’s body, she didn’t have a life vest on, and yet Steve and Raika claim that Sonia never reached them.”
Michael spoke up, “What if they were telling the truth! Did you ever think of that?”
Donald looked almost evil as he smirked, “Yes, I considered that, so I had a little chat with them before I killed them. They both confessed the two of them murdered the only woman I ever loved.” He laughed coldly as he looked down at Raika’s body, “Heh. That woman didn’t have a conscience. You brought this upon yourself, Raika. You deserved to die.”
Suddenly, Nonee yelled at him, “You stupid idiot!!”
That surprised Donald, “What? Nonee?”
She walked over to Raika’s body, “No child on this earth deserves to die in such a terrible way.” She went down next to the body, looking deeply sad, “What a horrible burden she carried knowing she had a hand in Sonia’s death.” She gently closed Raika’s eyes, “Not to say you should condone what she did, but when someone dies, someone will always mourn. No one should go through the pain I felt for the past two years, no matter what.”
No one said a word, not even Shadic. He only quietly watched Raika’s body. There was a sadness in his eyes, and perhaps a hint a guilt.

   Later that day, Demon sighed as he sipped his tea, “Geez, that all really happened while I was out? Shame I missed it. Sounds like you really blew them away with your big reveal at the end there.” He and Shadic were sitting in a coffee shop in the town not too far off from the manor.
After Shadic’s reveal, they kept Donald under watch until the car arrived. It was Clinton and Shadic would took the car back to town to get the police, who arrived right away after Shadic verified his identity as a detective. By the time the reports were made and Donald was taken away, along with Raika and Steve’s bodies, Demon had finally woken up. The two decided to stop in town before heading home, where Shadic explained the night’s events that Demon wasn’t witness to.
Shadic sighed, “It wasn’t anything special.” He didn’t even pick up his cup.
Demon noticed, “You ok, Shadic?”
Shadic looked ashamed, “She was there all along, Demon. She was there, and she was alive up until this morning.” Demon was surprised to see his friend look pained and guilty, “If I had just looked in that stupid tub myself, she would be alive right now. Steve was killed right away, but Raika… I could have at least saved her. She didn’t have to die, especially not like that.” He looked down at his cup, “She died slowly, alone, while everyone did nothing! While I did nothing!”
Demon sat his cup down as he looked sympathetic towards his friend, “Shadic…”
Shadic shook his head, “Don’t bother telling me I’m wrong, because I’m not.” Demon didn’t say anything, trying to decide how best to continue.
Shadic couldn’t help tears that formed in his eyes, “I know this isn’t anything new. We solve murders, meaning we always have victims, whether it’s my cases or your trials. It’s just how it happens. But this… this time we knew there was a murderer, we knew she was missing, and we knew the murderer was one of the guests, yet I didn’t think… I didn’t think how he could still hide her during everything. How he could lie. I let Donald search with me, I let him cover himself, I let him get away with one more murder.” He sighed, “I failed to find the truth in time. If I were just more careful, more observant, more anything… maybe I… maybe…”
To Shadic’s surprise, Demon laid a hand on his shoulder. Shadic finally looked up at his friend, who looked sympathetic. Demon spoke with a gentle smile, “You can’t save everyone, Shadic. No matter what you do. You just… can’t.” Shadic looked pained by those words, but Demon continued, “That’s why the world has us. So that they don’t get away with it. It’s the best we can ever do.”
Shadic looked down at his cup, still sad, but at the same time, a bit relieved. As if the weight of his failure seemed to lighten, even if just a bit. He sighed as he picked up his cup, “Thanks, Demon.” He sipped it as Demon smiled.
With that, the two drank their tea in silence.

Part 2

  As Shadic and Demon stood with the body, the others rushed over. Clinton was the first one down by Steve’s body, “What’s wrong? Is he ok? Steve, answer me!”
Shadic spoke, “It’s no use. I’m afraid he’s already dead.”
Clinton was as horrified as the others, “What!? What happened!?”
Demon spoke, “We’re not exactly sure. We just found him in the fountain.”
Shadic stood up and looked at the fountain, “If I had to guess, I’d say someone held his head underwater until he drowned.”
Clinton spoke, “What are you saying? That’s crazy!”
Donald joined in, “Yeah, come on! Steve was alive just moments ago!”
Shadic looked serious, “Was alive is right. Someone had to have killed him within the last ten minutes. Which means that whoever did it is probably one of the guests here.”
Nonee was horrified, “Who would do such a terrible thing?”
Clinton spoke, “One person comes to mind. The only one who’s not here right now.” He looked coldly up at the manor, “She has a glacier for a heart. Our own Raika Gilmore.” The guys were shocked.
Nonee shook her head, “No, Raika is a brat, but she would never do this.”
Shadic pulled off his jacket and laid it over Steve, “Afraid she might be right. We can’t be sure of anything just yet. It’s true she’s the one missing, but that could actually mean she’s in danger too.” Nonee gasped.
Shadic turned to the others, “Alright, before we go any further with this, we need to call the police. We’ll talk some more after that.”

 “You’ve got to be kidding me. The phones are dead?” Nonee and the others were inside the manor now. The old woman was surprised by the news.
Demon sighed, “Afraid so. I checked, but nothing.”
Michael spoke, “Does this happen very often?”
Nonee shook her head, “No, of course not.”
Demon spoke, “No doubt the killer cut the lines.”
Shadic pulled out his cellphone, “Cells are no good either. No signal out here.”
Clinton spoke, “Hey, what about the boys’ jeep? It didn’t get a flat, remember?”
Michael smiled, “That’s right! A couple of us could take off and head over to the police station.”
Shadic sighed as he ran the feather of his quill back and forth under his chin, “Don’t bother. I can already bet the killer slashed every one of our tires by now, just to prevent that very thing. No one’s going anywhere.” He looked serious, “He’s making sure we can’t leave. Most killers would run, which makes me believe that he’s planning to murder again.”
Clinton was determined, “That will not happen! Not while I’m here!”
Dirk rubbed his chin, “We need to be careful. A car is coming in the morning, so we can hold on until then.” He smiled at Nonee, “Madam Nonee, I think we’re gonna need some coffee.”
Nonee understood and gave a nod, “No problem.” With that, she headed to the kitchen.
Demon spoke up, “I’ll come help. No one should go anywhere alone.” Nonee smiled gratefully and they both headed out of the room.
Clinton also started out. Donald noticed, “Hey, Clinton, where are you going? We should all try to stay together.”
Clinton spoke as he went, “To the restroom, thanks.”
Donald followed, “I have to go, too.”
Michael hurried after them, “Yeah, me too!”
Dirk turned to Shadic, “We’re all still a bit wet. I should go to the washroom and grab some towels.” He smiled, “You don’t know what a relief it is to have you here, young man.”
Shadic smiled, “Just doing what I can to help out.”
Meanwhile, in the kitchen, Demon was pouring the coffee from a lovely old kettle into some cups as Nonee spoke, “You’re kidding. Who did this?”
Demon looked too see her looking in a cupboard, “Something wrong, ma’am?”
Nonee looked at him, “Someone moved the sugar. I can’t find it.” She pointed up, “Would you mind looking in that top cabinet for me up there, young man?”
Demon smiled, “No, of course not.” He walked over and opened the cabinet.
Nonee chuckled as she watched, “Thank you, dear. I wish I had those long legs of yours.” Demon opened the cabinet and looked inside. As he was looking, he didn’t see someone drop a couple white tablets into a cup of coffee.
Demon closed the cupboard, “Doesn’t look like it’s in here, ma’am.”
Nonee smiled, “Oh, wait a second, I remember now.” Demon looked to see her pulled a bag of sugar out of a low cabinet. She smiled, “I put it under here so I wouldn’t forget where it was. Silly me.” Demon chuckled.
At the same time in the living room, Shadic decided to ask a question that had been on his mind for some time, “Excuse me, what was it that happened two years ago? The accident on the boat you mentioned earlier?” The guys seemed surprised by the question.
Shadic spoke, “I know it may sound out of nowhere, but I overheard Steve Sloan say something strange. Something about how Raika’s future husband had been determined two years ago. It seems like it may be important, seeing as he’s now dead and Raika is missing.” He looked over the nervous men, “I think it’s about time someone told me a bit more about that boat accident.” No one seemed interested in talking about it.
Finally, Dirk sighed, “It was a most unfortunate accident. A huge storm rolled in. As usual, we were anchored by our favorite island, some of us had gone ashore to be on the little beach there. No one realized the storm was coming. We had no idea how fierce it would be.”
He continued, looking sad, “When the sky started turning, we all swam back to the yacht. Everyone except for Steve and Raika. They refused and the storm was upon us. Against our wishes, one of us set off after them in a life raft. The island actually went underwater when the tide came in and she feared they would be lost. When the storm cleared, Steve and Raika were rescued from the water. They had their life jackets on, but the brave young woman who left in the lifeboat to save them was never found that day.”
He sighed sadly, “Poor girl. Her body was discovered three days later. She drowned.”
Shadic sighed, “I see. What a horrible tragedy. The girl who drowned was a friend too?”
That’s when Nonee walked in with Demon. She spoke softly, “She was more than that. She was my granddaughter.”
Demon was surprised, “Your granddaughter?”
Nonee nodded, “That’s right. Sonya was an amazing girl. She died trying to save Raika. That’s the kind of person she was.” She then smiled as she sat the tray of cups down on the table, “Enough about that. Drink up before it gets cold.”
Each of the guys thanked her as they each took a cup. Shadic accepted one and spoke, “At any rate, before we get too cozy here, we need to continue our search for Raika.” He continued as the others sipped their coffee, “We’ll split up into two groups. The first thing we need to do is search through the house again, but keep in mind that the killer could still be among us. Stay with your group and make sure no one is ever alone.”
Donald accepted a cup and smiled, “Yeah, I think you’re right, detective! As long as we look out for each other, we should be safe.”
Dirk nodded, “Well, let’s finish our coffee so we can get started.”
Just then, Demon yawned. Shadic was a bit surprised, “Don’t tell me you’re tired already. It’s still so early.”
Clinton chuckled, “Is it perhaps past curfew, boys?”
Demon rubbed his head, looking incredibly tired, “I don’t know what it is, I just feel really tired all of a sudden.”
Nonee spoke, “Well, it’s no wonder he’s tired after all the goings-on. Why don’t you get some rest here on the couch, young man? I can keep an eye on him, just to be safe.”
Shadic saw how tired his friend was and spoke, “Yeah, you might as well. Not much you can do if you’re tired. Get some rest. Just be sure to stay in here, just in case.” Demon nodded as he laid across the couch.
Nonee smiled, “I’ll get you a nice warm blanket.”
With that, everyone else headed off to search the manor. They checked every room, every closet. Donald looked at Shadic afterwards, “We’ve checked every inch of this place.”
Shadic opened the microwave and looked in, “Raika?” He grinned at Donald, “Now we’ve checked every inch.”
Donald chuckled, “Very funny.”
Shadic smiled, then headed out, “Come on, let’s move on.” After some time, Shadic and Donald found themselves in the dark hallway.
Shadic rubbed his chin, “Well, we’ve covered the entire first floor, she’s not down here.”
Donald sighed, “If she’s not upstairs, she must be outside.”
Suddenly, the lights went off. Donald looked around, “The power’s out.”
Shadic looked serious, “Or someone turned it off.” He turned to Donald, “Where’s the breaker? Downstairs?”
Donald nodded, “Yeah, it’s next to the kitchen.” They hurried off.
As they ran, Shadic heard a ding echo through the hallway. He was surprised. Who rang a little bell?
Suddenly, there was a loud crashing. Shadic ran faster, though he turned the corner and ran right into someone. He landed back on his butt as the lights came back on, “Ow.” He looked to see Clinton, Michael, and Dirk, Dirk being the one who flipped the switch on the breaker box in the wall next to them.
Clinton looked annoyed, “Alright, which one of you turned the power off?”
Donald spoke, “What do you mean? We were down the hall, then we ran here when it went out!”
Shadic got to his feet, “Seems the killer did it.”
Dirk spoke, “It seems our searching must have forced him out of hiding. He created a blackout to escape.” He pointed, “Look. He broke right through that window.” They looked to see the smashed window.
Clinton look angry, “Stinking dog!” He rushed off out the window and out into the woods.
Donald quickly hurried out after him, “Clinton, wait!”
Dirk spoke up, “No, they could be walking right into a trap!” He, Michael, and Shadic hurried out after them.
They tried to keep up, but soon lost them. Shadic stopped, “Great, just what we don’t need. Where are they?”
Just then, Nonee hurried over, looking exhausted, “What’s going on out here? Did you see the killer? Was it him?”
Shadic turned to her, “What are you doing out here?”
Nonee sighed, slowing her panting, “I saw you all tearing out of the house, so I came out to see what happened. Did you catch him?”
Shadic gasped, “Wait, if you’re out here, who’s back with Demon?”
At that moment inside, Demon weakly came out of his sleep, still in a daze as he felt movement. He was being carried. He was too tired and dazed to think straight or move. He could only let the figure carry him down a dark hallway.
After a time, the figure put him down and Demon heard running water. Before he could try to understand what was happening, his head was forced underwater. He weakly struggled as water flooded his lungs, but he was still too weak to get free.
Down the hall, Shadic ran as fast as he could, “Demon!” He rushed into the kitchen and gasped.
There laid Demon on the floor, unconscious as water continued to pour out from the flooding sink as the water continued to run. Shadic rushed to his friend’s side, shaking him, “Demon! Demon, don’t do this to me! Wake up!”
Demon finally coughed weakly as he opened his eyes a bit, “..Sh...Shad...” Finally, he passed out again.
Shadic was surprised, “He fell back to sleep? That’s strange, he ought to be wide awake after that.” Then he remembered, “Wait, the coffee! He drank it just before he claimed to suddenly be tired! Someone drugged him!” He rubbed his chin, “But why Demon? He doesn’t have anything to do with any of this.”
Then he noticed something. The microwave on the counter. He was confused, “Wait, didn’t I leave that open earlier?” He laid Demon down, turned off the running water, and walked over, feeling the microwave, “It’s warm. Someone just used it.”
Shadic was silent as he pondered things, “This just keeps getting deeper and deeper.”

   Nonee gasped, “What? Someone tried to kill your friend?”
Shadic and the others were in the sitting room, where Demon was asleep on the couch under a blanket. Shadic nodded, “Yeah, they tried to drown him in the kitchen sink. Whoever it was had drugged his coffee earlier.”
Donald looked over at Nonee, “But it was Demon and Nonee who prepared the coffee. They were in there alone, right?”
Nonee spoke, “Yes, but I would never dream of hurting him.”
Shadic spoke, “It’s alright, Nonee. It couldn’t have been you, since you were in the woods with me when it happened.” He pulled out his feather quill in thought, “What I still don’t understand is why Demon? No one here even knew him before today. He has nothing in common with any of you.”
Dirk spoke, “It’s almost as if he was chosen randomly, which means we could be dealing with someone far more dangerous than we originally thought. A serial killer perhaps.” Everyone was quite frightened by that realization.
Shadic ran his fingers along his feather in thought, not afraid like the others, “I wonder.” He looked at Nonee, “Nonee, you were here with Demon when the lights went out, correct?”
Nonee nodded, “Yes, of course.”
Shadic spoke, “Did anything strange happen at that moment?”
Nonee gave it some thought, “Let’s see. I don’t remember anything too peculiar happening. I remember feeling a warm breeze and then the lights went out.”
Shadic was curious, “A warm breeze?” He looked up, “You mean like the ventilation system?” Then he thought of something. He walked over to the coffee table and picked up a device as the others started talking among themselves. It was the remote for the ventilation system, and it had 12:30 on it.
Shadic spoke to himself, “Twelve-thirty. That’s when the power went out.” He rushed off, which surprised the others, no one sure what he was doing.
Shadic ran around the manor, grabbing remotes from each room, and brought them all back. All of them had twelve-thirty on them. Shadic looked over them, “Someone’s been busy. All of the remotes were set to twelve-thirty.” He looked up at the vent, “Of course. Now I understand how the killer caused the power to go out.” He became serious, “So, the killer is indeed one of the guests after all.”
Just then, Michael spoke, “Are you crazy? You can’t stay in a room by yourself! It’s too dangerous!”
Donald nodded, “Michael’s right. We’ve got to stay together. The safest place to be is right in this room, Clinton.”
Clinton turned to him, angry, “Is it!?” That surprised them as Shadic walked back over. Clinton continued, “And what if the killer happens to be in this room? Is it safe then?” He turned from them, “Do whatever you want, I’ll take my chances alone.” He turned and headed out.
Dirk spoke, “I hope you don’t mind, but I prefer to do the same.” With that, he walked out.
Nonee spoke, “They should not go off alone. Have those two lost their marbles?”
Shadic sighed, “Let them go. We’ll just have to hope they know what they’re doing. For now, we’ll stay here together.” The others nodded in agreement.
Hours later, Dirk was sitting in his room alone, thinking. As he was sitting there, he heard footsteps outside his door. He quietly walked over to his door and peeked out to see Clinton walking by. He couldn’t help feeling very suspicious of Clinton.
At the same time, which was seven o’clock based on the beautiful grandfather clock in the sitting room, Shadic yawned, “Geez. The sun’s barely up.”
Donald stood up, “I’m up for a bathroom run. Anyone else?”
Michael nodded and stood up, “Yeah, I oughta go.”
Nonee nodded, “My old bladder’s about to burst.”
While they went, Shadic flipped on the TV, deciding it best not to leave his friend alone. He didn’t want to risk it again. Demon was still fast asleep on the couch next to him, proving the drug was very strong. He watched as the newswoman spoke of bad weather on the way.
Shadic yawned again after the others had been gone a while, “Boy, they seem to be taking their time.”
Just then, the three returned, Nonee carrying a tray of cups. Shadic was a bit surprised, “Coffee? After what happened?”
Donald smiled, “We decided it was a risk we have to take. Right, Michael?”
Michael chuckled, “Yeah, we were in no real danger this time. Nonee was armed with her iron skillet.”
Donald smiled as Shadic accepted a cup, looking suspicious of it, “Aw, come on, detective! We risked our necks for that java!” He pat Shadic’s back, though a little too hard, causing the cup to spill on his lap.
Shadic jumped up, quickly patting off the hot coffee, “AHH! Hot, hot, hot!”
He hurried for the bathroom as Donald called after him, “S-Sorry about that! I can be a real klutz sometimes!”
Shadic opened the door and walked in with a groan, “Geez, that was really ho-” He stopped as he noticed something in the dark and gasped.
There was someone with their upper body in the tub. He sighed, understanding right away, “Aw crud.”
He walked over to see the red dress, “It’s Raika.” And she was dead.

Commissions

Single Person Pictures
Yeah, I finally decided to give art commissions a try. I might not being doing it right, but whatever. I'll figure it out.
I will draw a picture of a full body single Sonic-style/Mobian charater. If you commission two pictures, I can make it one picture with two people in it if you want.
If you want it traditional coloring with colored pencils(since our markers aren't any good right now) or digital, you have to let me know when you commission me. You also can choose it to be a fullbody, or just a headshot. Headshots and traditionl coloring are easier for me to do, so they can be finished faster and might even look nicer.

Examples of my work:
fav.me/d96876d fav.me/d9xy7dw fav.me/d8iasxd
Stories
I can do a fanfic(ex. 1) or original story(ex. 3) for you in normal book style or chat room style(ex. 2). If you have trouble writing(maybe you're not English, or just no good with your grammar, or you just have trouble writing), I'll do the writing for you! I do this for some friends of mine and my sisters, so now I'm offering it to you! You give me the characters, the world I'm working with, the plot, and anything else you want in it, and I'll put it together for you into a story! 

Fanfictions I can do well:
Sonic
Pokemon
Sgt. Frog
There are others, but they should be noted to me first.

Genres I'll do:
Fantasy
Sci-Fi
Adventure
Romance

Each commission is up to three chapters or a one (long) short story. For anything shorter, note me.

No nudity, no language, no gore, no horror, no... naughty things. You know my work, you'll know my rules. No higher than PG13 from me.

I'm alright! =D Just super busy with my lifeguard classes and studies. Even now, my body is so worn out after two straight hours of swimming and treading at the pool to train for this Saturday. So... tired... and I still have to go study the manual for an hour before I'm done for the day. So, yeah, that's what I've been up to.

Just two more weeks and it'll all be over, for better or worse. =)

You mean Alice and Nijinn? Well, neither of them are mine, so I'm not the the person to ask. They both belong to :iconliyuconberma:, so you'll have to ask her. =)
