Three Drops
by Barghest236
It was easy to see how Rhika was once looking forward to this excursion.
She had been a citizen of the Eternal City of Kûr her entire life. She was born and bred on the Rat-Run — a street whose main claim to fame was being slightly less foul than the adjacent Muckrow. It never even occurred to Rhika to imagine a world that wasn’t covered in mud, much less a world beyond Kûr’s impenetrable walls.
But then, fate saw fit to scoop the reasonab

“Um... Mandy?”
“Not now, Janie.”
“It’s kinda important....”
“I’m a little busy right now. I got an article due tomorrow.”
“It’ll just take a sec.”
“Okay, fine, Janie — what is it?”
“You know how today is April 1st and all?”
“Sure.”
“And you know how you and Kisha didn’t want to do anything fun for April Fools?”

“Remember the movie ‘Alien’?”
“Not now.”
“Okay... only... ‘It’s in the venti—’”

Sirens blared. Men with hoses and air-tanks scurried about. And beyond all the chaos, a blonde girl in pajamas watched the inferno impassively....

From the depths of the ebon abyss, Rachel Beckett screamed again. She cried and wailed with every scrap of her being until finally, the darkness called back:
“Rachel! Goddammit — wake up!”
Something seized Rachel’s shoulders and pulled hard. Upwards she flew, dragged through the darkness like

Philter Silcrow had been waiting forever.
At least that’s what it felt like. If the sun peeking through the thick forest canopy was at all trustworthy, then he’d only really been waiting for an hour or two. Still, an hour or two of sustained observation was more than his fidgety demeanor could bear.

It was a beautiful autumn day, but Kelsey Quinn didn’t have time to enjoy it. She narrowed her sharp green eyes, took a careful breath, and...
Plink!
Jason whistled as the tiny white ball vanished into the distance. “That’s gotta be the finest slice I’ve ever seen!”
“Oh, shut up,” muttered Kelsey, glumly dropping her club.
