Shade hasn't moved from the spot she had taken when they first entered and her ears detect the sounds of feet in the hall before the door opens. Steel grey eyes fix on sea green and do not waver as Nicos speaks. Shade is expressionless, motionless - predator poised for the kill or prey paralyzed by imminent doom. Her world was never so black and white, always shades of grey like her cursed vision and haunted with ghosts of the past. The moment seems to last forever, the weight of this night's happenings pressing down like mountain upon them. She knew the source of her hesitation, her fear: there was no easy way out. To speak was to make it real.

To stay silent was to die without a fight.

With a slight twitch of her shoulders Shade breaks the spell that pins her, fear of helplessness outweighing fear of the unknown. Her cold, hard eyes stay upon Isac though they both know it isn't his fault.

"What's happening is that my past has come home. I'm going to need to leave here, soon."

That much she knew. The rest she didn't want to know, didn't want to talk about. She takes a deep breath and lets it out slowly.

"But first we need to figure out what is going on, don't we Isac?"
