First Love --- A MegaMan SongThis time of night
Only candle light
Illuminates me soul
This time of night
You said no to me
You want to be free
To soar the sky
Now it's too late
Free to say the
Only word you need
Since I've found you
I've found the one thing
That makes me happy
That's why now...
That you're free
So I've got only
one thing to say...
I still love you...
Panic in a Small Town pt18I don't exactly know how long I sat in that dirty room, but I could hear some people outside, and the occasional person shouting my name wondering where I was.
I didn't call out, though. I didn't want anyone to find me. I wanted to stay in the dark wondering if anyone was looking for me because they cared or because they had to.
Why did I freak out like that? I could have kept my temper down, but I couldn't. Maybe it was the loss of sleep, or the stress of having booked a famous band. Either way I looked at it, nothing made sense.
"Rena! Where are you?" I heard Spencer call from the room below. I could've easily looked down the hole in the floor and saw him, call out to him to say I was all right. But I kept staring into the darkness, ignoring his voice.
Somewhere in town, a bell chimed. Calling to the world to let it know that it was now noon. Also warning whoever cared that I
Panic in a Small Town pt17After getting across to the fourth part of Horse Trading Days, I walked around, carefully watching to make sure Erika wouldn't be there and not to trip over any wires. If I played my cards right, I could get through the entire place without being noticed by too many people. Which was hard since more than three thirds of the town now knew me, and...
"Hey look, everyone! It's Rena!" A man, I think his name was Dave, said from the gazebo. He was speaking into a microphone. "She and her friend arranged for Panic! At the Disco to come! Hey, why not let her sing?"
I swear my face looked like "o.0" as soon as Dave said my name. I'd flinched really badly, so I was hunched forward with my arms out like I was ready to pounce. Everyone looked over their shoulders to look at me, and when they saw how I was poised, they giggled.
"Rena, you have a great voice! Come up and sing us a song!" Dave called.&
Panic in a Small Town pt16After another few minutes or so, I realized most people were getting hungry. Well, actually, a hint fell from the sky. Okay, it more like crashed into my head over four men. It was a rolled up piece of paper from Erika saying that she and Brendon were getting hungry.
People were just now walking by looking at the band and getting info from the booth a few feet away about the Strand. I didn't notice that Spencer was looking over my shoulder.
"Y'know, I think we're all hungry." Spencer said. I screamed jumping away from him. "You don't have to get worked up about it."
"Don't scare me like that!" I said a little louder than I really should have. Everyone looked over to me.
And I mean everyone within a thirty feet radius turned to look at me.
"Hey, Rena, talk a little louder and some aliens may fly down and ask you to shut up." Erika said leaning back to look at me.
"Well, he scared me and you know how easily I ge

Panic in a Small Town pt15"Hey! You two done playing huggle?" I heard Brendon call from somewhere on the stage. I heard Erika laughing from somewhere around the same place he was. I didn't look up, and I didn't feel Spencer move so he must've cared about as much as I did. Which wasn't a lot.
"Why're you six standing -- and hugging -- around staring at each other?! Horse Trading Days is gonna start soon!" I heard the manager call form the office door. I think Brendon called her Lauren a while ago.
Spencer let me go and we both stood up, and looked around. Nothing really changed in the large room, but it felt different.
"C'mon! There's a booth outside with pictures for you guys to sign and other crap like that. I think people are already lining up!" Another lady said from the office. I could barely hear her.
"Oh fine, then! Well, c'mon, boys!" Brendon shouted unnecessarily throughout the entire
Panic in a Small Town pt14The next morning, I was the first to wake up. It was finally Thursday and the first day of Horse Trading Days. I was nervous beyond all belief, for I hadn't planned out anything. No booth, what they would say; if we were to have pictures... Everything overwhelmed my brain, so I sat up in bed and accidentally hit my head on the top bunk.
"Oww!" I cried out putting my hands on my head where I hit it. Luckily, my hands were cold and it made my head feel a little better.
"Uhh, what's going on?" Brendon's voice came from the top bunk. Everyone else woke up to that, too.
"Rena? Are you alright?" Spencer asked sitting up, more carefully than I did, and put his hands on my shoulders.
"Warning, bunk beds many cause headaches." I said in an odd voice.
"Oh gawd, Rena!" Spencer cried out bringing me back so I could rest on his chest. I felt his hand gently caress my cheek.
"She's used to walking into things. Sh
The BeginningHe told them, of course. He told those idiots everything, the whole damn story, including the blunder he'd made, and its consequences. Looking back on it later, he realized he had probably been in shock the whole time. It made sense, anyone would have been.
Soph was about twenty years old, and he'd been that way for a couple of years already, ever since the Hoarde had started attacking humanity from the past. Every day that passed, they ate at another day in the past. It sickened him. Those creatures had absolutely no regard for proper time and causality protocols.
It didn't seem to affect anyone else that way, though.
The Hoarde was the result of a human creation, of course, like everything bad in the world, though no one else knew about them. Then again, no one else had undiluted access to the power of creation. Even he didn't know much about the Hoarde, only that they appeared through some tear in The Fabric of The World and started killing people off. They appeared at some point in
