Maria glanced over to Hark briefly before turning her attention to Syon.
The vampire glanced over to Hark, having sensed something from the shadow alternate, “Something wrong?”
He gave a blink, and shook his head, managing a smile. Don’t. Don’t let it show. No matter how much it hurts.
“No, everything is fine. Old desires that never came true, that’s all.”
He wasn’t here for himself. He was here for Maria.
Shadow finally appeared in the room, curious to who was here. He had sensed another Chaos energy signature and extra heart beats as he came down the hall. He was surprised to see the young female fox he had briefly met a few months ago, apparently accompanied by an alternate he had yet to meet.
After stepping closer, and glancing at Syon, he greeted the both of them, “Hello. It’s nice to see you again,” he said to the blond fox, before turning to the other dark hedgehog, “and to meet you, alternate. What brings you to my A.R.K?”
