Dog Days: Retaliation Chapter 6Chapter 6
Days Go By
And so, a week passed by, the longest week Shinku had ever experienced if he did say-so himself. "Toilet" duty was rather unpleasant, given that the "toilet" was a shared bucket. It disturbed Shinku so much he became constipated for three days just thinking about having to use that filthy thing. But, finally, his body relented and he started to use it. Though toilet paper was still not an option, given it was a "luxury". Something Shinku would have never thought to hear in the same sentence, "luxury" and "toilet paper". In fact, apparently everything Shinku used on a daily basis was a "luxury" to Éclair and Gaul.

"Are we there yet?" Shinku asked in the dark, following Gaul as he walked an unseen path. "Cause it seems to me that we're walking in circles!"
"You just love to complain, don't ya?" Gaul replied with a sigh. "We're not lost."
"Really? I swear we passed this tree already." Shinku pointed to a thin tree with forked branches.
"Shinku, it's a tree. They all look alike, ok? We are not lost, ok?" Gaul replied with a tone that made Shinku wonder if he was being honest or not.
"If I recall, wasn't the road to Galette a straight path lined with trees? This isn't a straight path, it's more of a curved one… and aren't

Thin Line Between Sanity and Insanity
For years, Millhiore's office was clean and pristine with every book on the fine-wooden bookshelves in place, every paper neatly stacked, and every decoration kept spotless. Of course, this was mostly due to the hard-working staff that maintained the castle. And Millhiore did her best to not ruin her office. So, it would come to no surprise that anyone would be shocked that the office was ruined by the three strangers. And Millhiore was no exception to this.
Her beautiful office was in shambles thanks to these three persons. Her desk was overturned and blocked the doorway, the bookcases were

Politics and Guns
"So, what is going on exactly?" the Secretary of Defense of the United States spoke to a small group of men that sat around a table. With the SoD was also the Prime Minister of Japan, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and the Defense Minister of Japan.
"It would appear that it's starting. The wheels of fate." The PM of Japan replied, cupping his hands.
"Pardon my rudeness, Prime Minster." The PM of Britain spoke. "But I do not think this is "fate". Rather, this is an act of terrorism, which could lead to serious results in this time."
"Gentlemen, we must remember that Earth and Flonyard are not really

Time Travel, Again
"So, can you now explain what is going on?" Shinku asked as he, Éclair, and Gaul scaled the cement staircase that ran through the old apartment building.
"We will once we get inside." Éclair replied as she and Gaul jogged up the stairs, Shinku jogging behind them. "We can't waste time now."
"Didn't you tell him anything?" Gaul asked her with a sigh, gripping the metal railing.
"I explained we are older." She shrugged, turning with the staircase. "And told him we know about weapons.
"Did you tell him something not that obvious?" Gaul asked with a hiss, approaching an exit to the stairwell.
HelicaseHelio and I were always sitting on the stairs, chatting about the lamina and occasionally making snide remarks about ribosomes. There wasn't much for us to do. Our job was to simply be, and let the RNA scribble down the letters on our foreheads when they came around every once in a while. Helio was a G, I was a C. It wasn't exactly fulfilling, I suppose. There wasn't much to be filled. So to pass the time, we talked.
"You ever wonder?" Helio asked.
"About...well...what's out there." Helio and I were rooted to the stairs, quite happily, but it was awkward to move in. He kind of twisted in the general direction of the closest pore. "Out in the cytoplasm."
"I haven't," I admitted. "What's there to wonder about?"
"That's exactly the thing. I have no idea." Helio sighed, gazing into the distance. "Somehow it feels like we play this huge, huge role in something important, but how can we when we don't even know what that something is? I want to be something that, that has
