Breaking and Entering - 17Inside me tension and confidence were fighting to decide which emotion I was feeling the strongest. I didn't want Clank there, and yet I felt a lot better with him secured against my back. Part of me was glad he was nearby so I could keep an eye on him, while another part of me wanted him as far away from this place as possible. I let the confused feelings spin as I instead focused on not getting us lost.Breaking and Entering - 17 by C-Puff
"Hmm," Clank mused after a while. "Interesting how part of the original temple has been used in the machine's construction. Do you think it was intentionally built this way, or perhaps the device itself somehow integrated into the surrounding structure beyond that of the lombax passages?"
I gave a shrug. "Heck, I dunno. Doesn't really matter does it?"
"Perhaps not, but it is still interesting."
"Sure, pal," I smirked to myself.
We passed through one of the halls with a caved in ceiling. Through it I could see stars coming out as the very last traces of daylight died away outside. I he
Breaking and Entering - 16I ran plans through my head as I walked. If this override machine was in the temple I would need to find it and fast. Chances are, any instructions or labels were gonna be in lombax, which was gonna be a problem. That's if it was finished and could actually turn on. If not, I was gonna have to improvise and do a jerry-rig or something. Not that there was a lot of technology inside that temple to work with. Bringing parts with me didn't seem like a good idea. They'd weigh me down if I needed to move quickly and I had no idea if they'd even be compatible with lombax tech. If there wasn't any device at all, I was gonna have to find another way to stop that thing. I thought about the control centre I'd seen and if I could work out a way to disable it. If all else failed, I could blow the thing up. Faversham said explosions couldn't destroy it, but that was from the outside. If I could wreck the controls for the thing, that would hopefully be enough to stop it.Breaking and Entering - 16 by C-Puff
I stepped into the elevator a
Breaking and Entering - 15My head was starting to swim and my arms felt like lead. I just wanted to find somewhere I could crawl into and fall asleep, but I knew I wasn't gonna get the chance. Not yet, anyway.Breaking and Entering - 15 by C-Puff
I stepped down from the cockpit to the floor, my arms shaking at the exertion. I ignored them, turning to watch Talwyn follow me while Clank rounded the ship from the driver's side. I hurt, I was exhausted, and I was sure I needed to get a serious amount of water in me, but there was business to take care of first.
"We need to call... I dunno. Someone," I said, running a hand over the top of my head. I could feel fur sticking out at odd angles.
"Because of that... thing?" Talwyn asked, frowning lightly at me. "What exactly was that, anyway? I mean it, looked like a giant walking building but where the heck did it come from? And what were you doing on top of it? And where did you go?! You just disappeared!"
I shook my head at her although what this was suppose to mean I didn't even know.
"I still do not be
Breaking and Entering - 14I thought the temple's rumbling was just the sign of some kind of mechanism starting up and that it would calm down after a while. Instead, the further I ran the worse it seemed to get. I was stumbling almost as much as I was running. All my wits were focused on trying to find my way back to the entrance, but the dark, and confusion, and groaning of ancient stone being dislodged made it so hard I was sure I was just getting myself hopelessly lost.Breaking and Entering - 14 by C-Puff
I kept going though. I didn't know what that machine had done, but every fibre of my being told me I needed to get away from it. I ran down hallways, often bouncing off the walls with my hands as I tried to keep my balance and keep up a steady pace at the same time. It was like an earthquake, but at the same time not like an earthquake. An earthquake makes the ground shake side to side but most of the movement here seemed to be like the temple was a snowglobe being shook by someone. Part of me was wondering what the hell was happening, but it
