"Oh my god, I love this place soooo much! What they do here is come to your table and show you a metal stick of different meat and you can choose which one you want and they just give it to you. They also have a dance floor! Like, whoever thought of a place like this is the greatest human ever and I will want to kiss them and hug them." Kat says as she acts out the scenario with Elizabeth. Elizabeth laughs and signals the group to follow them, as they run into the restaurant. "Come on, before it starts to get crowded." When they enter the place, it's quiet and only a few people are in the building. The entrance has two columns of beautiful, colorful granite supporting the roof. The sides have crimson curtains tied by gold rope, while the floor is covered in maroon carpet. The waiter came to them, asking what name the reservation was under and took the gang to their seats in the dance hall. This place is known for the weird factor that it also has a dance hall, but no one seems to mind. Arthur helps Elizabeth get seated and Tyler helps Kat. As they do so, the waiter asks what they want for drinks and leaves. "Ok guys, we need to make the most of this day, so we need to go somewhere funner and cooler than this!" Kat says putting her arms in the air.
"First thing, funner is not a word and second, why don't we just enjoy the now. We have each other and that is all that matters to me. I don't care what we do next, but let's finish this first before moving on, ok?" Elizabeth says as she covers her lap with the napkin. She looks at Arthur and gives a big smile at him. "Also Kat, did you hear about the magician coming into town? I hear he can do-" Eliazbeth stops and looks at Arthur who is already looking down at his phone. "Oops, haha forgot. I will try to keep the conversation interesting for everyone."
"Yeah, you know magic isn't real Eliazbeth. It's like ghosts and religion, just something to help people feel comfortable and scared to keep them at ease, so why care about it?" Arthur says looking up from his phone. "Just a simple sleight of hand tricks, nothing special about that. I don't get why you like going to those things anyways. I can teach you that stuff here and now! Watch as I make this napkin disappear!" As he says this, he grabs his napkin and starts to stuff it into his hand and when he opens it, the napkin is gone. Elizabeth looks at him and giggles with a smile and looks down at her plate. Arthur realizes that he kinda embarrassed her and feels guilty. "But hey if y'all want, we can go to one. I don't mind, because as long as y'all are there, it’ll be great for me." Tyler looks at him with a smile and also looks down at his plate.
"I think it will be fine if we just stick to our normal..." Tyler stops and stares at the entrance. He sees a tall, young woman with silver hair walk in, staring around the restaurant for someone or something. Tyler nods to Kat and slowly starts to stand up. "Hey Arthur, how about you, Kat and Elizabeth stay here while I see what's taking the food so long." The woman spots the four of them and strides to the table.
"What are you talking about, we just ordered our food." Arthur turns and looks at the woman, who just entered the room and closes the door behind her. "Who is that?" He stands up and walks to her, not noticing his friend's eyes had widened. The woman stops and looks at Arthur in confusion, looking back at his friends. "Ma'am I'm sorry about this but do you mind stating your business here? My friends are acting very awkward, thinking you're here for some evil reason." Arthur turns around and starts to notice their faces. "What is wrong with y'all? Do you guys know her? Because I have never seen her in my life."
"Arthur, can you see her?" Elizabeth said cautiously, getting up from her seat. Arthur nods and with that answer, Elizabeth pulls her purse up and says "Authorize program." and sees the woman move closer to them. The woman stares at Arthur and gives him a grin that frightens him, causing Elizabeth to yell “Pull!” bringing a handgun out and pointing it at the woman. Kat pulls a hilt out that's completely made of wood except for the silver cross guard. She hits the bottom of the hilt and green vines shoot out of the hilt, creating a curved sword. The vines get absorbed into the silver cross guard . Tyler brings out a small red rod and clicks a button, which pushes the two sides out. The rod becomes a spear covered in what looks like veins engraved all over it. Arthur realizes that they are pointing their weapons at the woman and he moves back from her. "Arthur, you need to leave now. This place isn't safe and if you stay here too long, they’ll take you with us to Elgavion. Emily, leave him alone. He is not your concern and he means you no harm." Arthur was now behind his friends, looking at this woman ,terrified of who she is and what she wants. The woman looks up and smiles and lifts her leg up in the air. She snaps and half of the gray pants she was wearing changes into two long blades engraved with beautiful designs. The blades circle around her legs as she points one at Arthur.
"Arthur, right? I'm surprised that you can see me now. The fact you can see me tells me one of these three did something to you. From the looks of your friends being shocked, they accidentally awakened your magic. The boss will be glad to hear that. Arthur, how would you like to come with me and I can teach you everything about magic, Elgavion and the truth that they won't tell you. You will be arrested and taken to Alfredo if you stay with your friends." Arthur looks up at her and then at his friends and backs up more.
"Sorry, Emily, which is your name right? Doesn't matter, you can leave, I'm going to stay with them and I'm sure they’ll explain the situation to the police officers when they get here, but I want to talk about those legs! That's so awesome! Are your legs like part machine or are they separate from your body and you can use them as one. Also,did you used to be a ballerina, ‘cause your movement with your legs is very clean and precise. How did you make those?" Arthur asks as he gets a bit close to get a better look at the amazing artwork. The blades are lined with glowing blue on the blade itself, and on the sides there are runes patterning down to the tip. Emily actually starts to smile and opens her mouth, about to speak, but Tyler moves himself between her and Arthur. "Hey Tyler, we’re just talking, no need to barge in ok? We’re all people that can sit down and talk like people, before starting a fight and hurting someone." Arthur says. Emily hears his words, frowns and looked at Arthur's friends
"You guys haven't told him about yourselves? Ok, well, back to the subject, you guys will get in our way and Arthur could start being a threat if he doesn't come with me so…" Emily jumps in the air and tries to stab Arthur with her legs as she falls, but Elizabeth puts her hand in her purse again and pulls a shield out, blocking the attack. Emily bites her lip and lands before everyone. "You are a fast girl, but you should check your hand" she says as she yanks a very thin wire to her. Elizabeth looks at her hand and sees a shimmered line and sees blood, noticing a camouflaged dagger has pierced the skin down the middle. Emily then yanks the air and Elizabeth flies towards her, dragging Elizabeth across the ground. Emily picks up Elizabeth and holds her down as a hostage. "Ok now, back off please. Arthur come with me. You seem pretty cool and you’re just new to this and I feel like you need help understanding what is going on. I can teach you how to use magic. Theodore, he can-" As Emily keeps talking, Elizabeth headbutts her, knocking her back and Elizabeth repositions herself in front of Arthur.
"Back off! He is my boyfriend and you will never manipulate him into joining whatever group of people you mess around with! He is not going to Elgavion. Ever. You won't take him and neither will those damn cops! Next time you see them, tell them they can talk to us and only us!" Elizabeth raises her shield ready to block the next attacks as she wields her handgun.
“I'm not trying to steal him from you. If you want to, you guys could come too. I don't know how Theodore will feel about that but the more the merrier, am I right? Also, the cops would arrest me on site, you know being one of the few well known assassins apart from the Trinities. And I'm glad I can stall you long enough for them to get here." Emily gives a smile and as she starts to slowly back out of the room, the gang starts to hear a stampede of footsteps coming towards their location. "Well, I must be going before they come for me, oh and Arthur, I won't be there to say it, but welcome to the new world." Emily says as she sprints out of the room.
Tyler looks at his friends shocked "guys we...we have to run, get Arthur and we can-" the back doors blast open, knocking everyone back a few feet. Arthur sees a bunch of what looks like SWAT officers coming into the room, handcuffing his friends and placing a syringe into their necks. Elizabeth looks at Arthur as she passes out. They bring a device over to Arthur and point it at him. It starts to beep loudly and the man holding the device waves to his comrades.
"He has awakened. Grab him and take him to Alfredo." The officer says as Arthur is picked up and taken along with his friends. As they leave from the front, Arthur sees all of the people around the restaurant frozen in place. Standing there, some smiling from a joke being told, others whispering to each other sweet memories or ideas, but they all have one thing in common: they know none of this is happening to him and his friends. When they leave the building, there’s a helicopter that looks more technologically advanced than any helicopter he has seen in his life. It has the normal blades and structure of a helicopter, but has glowing runes on the sides and the weapons on the wings of the helicopter looks very Sci-fi. When they get everyone on the chopper, it takes off fast. Arthur looks at his friends and then looks at one of the officers who removes his mask to reveal what he is. The pointy-eared elf looks at Arthur with a blank face.
