It was nothing strange for Ames to be delivering various letters and items to other zones and areas, but this time was… Different.
Unlike most other errands, this time he wasn’t allowed to know the contents of the message. His soul felt like it was about to leave his body when he was ordered into Dedans office, and the strict orders to not question his directions and to just deliver the letter to the guardian of Zone 3 had not made it better.
Sure, he might not be afraid of the metal guardian, unlike the others of his kind, but that didn’t stop him from feeling the the ever so present aura of danger radiating from the man. He felt that this was not one of the times where he was allowed to mess up, he didn’t want to find out the consequences.
So he had quickly packed his traveling backpack, figuring that if he’s going to Zone 3 anyway he might as well bring other letters and items and deliver them too. But other than items for the various errands he also brought with him various healing items - He’s not a strong fighter, and he’s very aware of that fact. His best bet would always be to run away and to rely on the help of the luck tickets.
Somehow the backpack felt heavier than usual as he entered the quiet and barren nothingness, and his breathing short and hasty. Something was wrong, he could feel it. And maybe that letter had something to do with it.
The echoing whispers of the dark emptiness only made his anxiety heighten and he wastes no time making his way over to the star like spot on the ground that marked the third zone.
The zone of the factories.
Ames presses the Pisces card against the ground, and in an instance the darkness around him fades and his surroundings becamo clear and vivid once again. The first building loomed ominously ahead, the tall chimneys polluting the air in the distance with dark smoke. But despite the almost dirty and worn look of the area, the air smelled sweet…
It had been so long since he visited his previous home. He wonders if he’ll even get lost whilst trying to find his way to the big misters office.
No matter what, he has to deliver this letter to Enoch.
