“Hey Angel, over here!” A voice called me. It was Roxy…but I swear she wasn’t there a minute ago. My eyes must be playing tricks on me! I walked over to her and gave her a big hug. After exchanging a few words on my current…*ahem* situation, I asked her:
“So what’s going on here anyway?”
“Some people are going on a quest for the 10,000 pages.”
“10,000. Wow…” I’d never ever been near so much. It must be great to be immortal. “And I guess you’re going as well?”
Roxy grinned at me, “I’d never miss a chance like this.”
Hmm. I pondered the thought of touching those 10,000 pages, of feeling the power within them, but could I ever keep up with such a gallant band of adventurers (and Lackeys and Argonauts, and…)? Well, I suppose I wouldn’t get lost if I stuck to them, right?
“Okay, I’ll join too!” I said bravely, attracting a couple of strange glances from some of the other group members. Suddenly an argument broke out at the front of the group.
“I hope it’s not going to be like this all the time, when we are trying to make decisions” I muttered to Roxy.
So I stepped forward. “Hey guys…? Um…Well, seeing as Crystal’s the one with that special book-thingy and she seems to know what she’s doing, maybe she should be the one making all the executive travelling decisions. Then we could have someone else as deputy, giving their opinion if they think she’s incorrect…or something. At least that way, if we go wrong, we’ll know who to blame…um…”
Okay, maybe that last sentence was a bad idea.
