Malcolm watched the porch melt through the window, but the sight confused him more because of his left eye. It kept glitching and flashing, as if many nanobots were dying, but it also seemed to flip back and forth between seeing the porch melting and seeing it intact.

Malcolm cried out in frustration, turning away. His head pounded with a migraine, which significantly worsened his mood.

“Damn this eye!”

One of the humanoids approached the door and opened it, blocking the entrance but seeming to appear curious why the feline wanted in. The other two stood guard by Malcolm, blocking him from sight of the door.

@Serpentess

The nanobots on the table questioned Malcolm, asking if he wanted to let the feline in. Malcolm groaned, rubbing his temples.

“What in the goddamn hell do you want? Can you not take a hint? I prefer solitude. Besides, unless you’re a machine, I could give a shit about you or anyone else. And you destroyed my goddamn guardian, an old friend of mine!”Malcolm snapped without moving from his spot.

“And is the porch and that robot truly gone? Or is that just a trick?”Malcolm added.

(If it wasn’t already obvious, Malcolm is an asshole)

@RiverTheSeawing

"Things get destroyed sooner or later," they said in a cold tone, "you're lucky it was destroyed by someone who would've shown mercy had it not attacked me."

Tsuki paused for a second. "No, the porch and the robot were simply illusions."

@Serpentess

“Lucky hell! There is no such thing as mercy! Now what the hell do want?”Malcolm hissed.

The nanobots on the table built a small hand that rested on his finger, as if meant to comfort him.

Malcolm sighed irritably and shook his head.

“Goddamn illusions. Why was I brought into a world where a bunch of assholes like illusionists exist?”he muttered.

The robot that had been hit by the illusion looked down at Tsuki, arms crossed as if irritated.

@RiverTheSeawing

"I want to give you something," they said, "I have endless knowledge from the past and future that I wish to impart on you."

They paused as she looked at the remains of the guardians.

"I can assure you the knowledge can help you revive what I've destroyed."

They held out a paw and a ball of white light shone from it.

@Serpentess

“Really? An all-knowing alien cat, how wonderful. Just remove the damn illusions and go away. I’ve got enough of a migraine as it is,”Malcolm growled, sarcasm heavy in his tone.

The nanobots waited patiently for any command Malcolm gave them.

@Serpentess

Malcolm sighed irritably, massaging the back of his neck to see if that would assist with his migraine. He then sighed again when he considered his newest enemy. How he hated organics!

The humanoid hit by the illusion shook its head and walked inside. It then melted into a pile of nanobots, along with two of the other humanoids. The piles created several more of the spiked rolling machines, each moving to a window and settling underneath it. Two stayed by the door. The remaining humanoid moved out of the house, blocking the door like the first humanoid had done.

“At least I am now surrounded by my favorite little machines.”

The nanobots, many of them, flashed at him. He smiled, then headed to the bedroom and sprawled on it, miserable from his pounding head.

Axel opened his eyes just as noon hit his face. He groaned, feeling around for solid floor, but was met with nothing but air. Startled, he began to twist and turn, grabbing at branches so he didn't fall.
He turned onto his stomach and was met eye to eye with a new monster. He screamed, slipping more off the branch,
"Who are you!?"

@Serpentess

(I’m not sure if you saw the little post I had done to assist in finding your previous post, but my bad on putting page 3 instead of 4)
(And is it me or am I having some issues describing setting/character placement? I was trying to have it where Axel was still on the ground, just lying on one of the leaves, and now I can’t decide if I like the ground idea or the branch idea better. Crap. Help me out here)

@Serpentess

(Hmm… you want to just stick with the tree? I keep seeing him lounging in a leaf hammock now. Kind of funny. Could even be in his future, you never know)

(Yeah, that sounds good)

@Serpentess

The elf-like creature yelped and grabbed Axel, speaking in that strange language again, though she seemed to very concerned. She attempted to get him settled again, cooing.

Meanwhile, much deeper in the woods, Goldergon discovered a tall, purple rip in the fabric of reality. He hummed and tapped the edge of it.

An eerie howl came from it and a massive clawed hand came out, pulling at the portal uselessly. It growled and Goldergon smiled.

“I’ll help you out, if you promise to cause as much destruction and death as possible,”Goldergon said.

An approving rumble came from the unknown beast. Goldergon’s grin widened and he waved his hand with a flourish, a grey mist floating around his fingertips. He grabbed the edge of the portal, which was now truly tangible to him, and pulled.

@Seeba groupINKC President

Axel wriggled against the hold of the monster, its skin a strange cold texture against his
"Let me go please ! Who are you ?!"

@Serpentess

(Nice twist with the cool skin feature)

The elf-like creature set him down in the leaf hammock she had made and moaned, a sad expression crossing her face.

She looked at Axel and spoke again, but it was still the gibberish noises.
———
The portal opened drastically with Goldergon’s pull, becoming as tall as the trees. The creature within rumbled again and crawled through on all fours.

The massive beast seemed like a combination of a grizzly bear and a venomous snake, with a long furred body and massive clawed feet, a serpentine tail, and a stretched form of a bear’s face with long fangs, large teeth, and three forked tongues. Its eyes glowed red and when it stretched, three rows of horns grew from its spine from crown to tail. The most unusual part of its body were those front feet, which had long prehensile fingers despite appearing like a bear’s paw.

“Look at you. You’re gorgeous! Come, I shall show you the way to a grand feast! And… we’ll arrive by nightfall,”Goldergon said.

The beast growled, an eerie fanged grin appearing on its snout. Goldergon smiled back, flashing his own dull red fangs.

@Seeba groupINKC President

Axel blinked.
"I can't understand you." He mumbled.
His weight against the leaf hammock made him weary, he doubted the monster took into account his weight when crafting it.
"What are you?"

@Serpentess

The elf-like creature moaned, then considered how to answer his question. She grabbed a nearby branch with a wilting leaf and gently touched the leaf. Gold light poured from her fingers and the leaf lifted and brightened, wilting no more.

She turned to Axel and indicated the leaf then herself, a hopeful expression on her face.
