Aaran stepped out of the portal, but he now had a terrible headache. He leaned against a tree for support and moaned,"What is that?" He slowly sank to the ground and held his head in his hands,"I'm sorry, I'll be a minute." He gasped and waved for them to keep going.

Kristen smiled and twirled back,"Yeah, but I miss way back when sometimes. Life was a little less crazy, but I like freedom. No more cafeteria food that tastes like cardboard."
Racine was relieved to see his sister. He glanced to Harbinger and grew suspicious, because he was smirking. He left him, to walk over to Elina. "It is good to see you all."

He sighed softly in relief. "Thank you. " He said with conviction.

Orson chuckled, "I will never miss being a captive, but the food had it's purpose. It was at least edible." He said reflectively.
