You get what you feel is a safe distance down the road before you and Michelle switch places, letting her drive while you move into the backseat and try to do first aid.

You slow down the bleeding on Fuse's leg, and focus first on Caius. The bleeding is... severe, an already poorly placed wound exacerbated by physical stress. The struggle Caius engaged in immediately after getting shot in the gut did the damage no favors. You focus on slowing the blood flow down with your powers, and using your first aid supplies to apply pressure manually. You keep in touch with Dr. Finch, but most of what you need to know you already knew, or have already absorbed from Dr. Finch.

You think, at first, that Caius is just putting on a brave face. You realize quickly that he's fading in and out of consciousness.

He's pale, and sweating cold. He's suffering from shock, either primary or secondary. It's an immense battle just to keep him from bleeding out, and you're incredibly wary of how the open wound may have been affected by the radiation in the air inside the power station.

He needs dedicated medical attention. Even with Michelle speeding down the street, blazing through red lights and taking the shortest route possible, you're not sure you can make it back to the bunker in time.


You find yourself before a great staircase, and not much else. Around you, miles and miles of nothingness. In the distance, cities that once were.

You may have forgotten to medicate before you fell asleep. You made yourself a note, even--it's still written on your palm.

Did you actually forget?

Much like this place, it feels like a hole in your memory. You've been here before, you think, but it's like remembering a dream days after the fact.

Cities that once were? See if you can recognize any.

Okay, maybe think of something to anchor self-awareness down (maybe Shirai?) and I guess, if we can't wake up from this Nil-Land, what else can we do but climb the stairs?
