    Altizica looked up at the bright sky above. He wasnt likely going to see it again so he better enjoy the last few times he saw it. His view then changed back to the ground, he sat on one of the park benches and watched his two lovely children Anita and Aluin do....whatever it is they do. He wasn’t going to see them for much longer to so he wanted to spend as much time with them as possible. It took a lot of coercion but he was finally able to have the day with his two kids, the idea alone brought a smile to his face. “Anita. Aluin. Would you maybe want to get some ice cream? I hear there is a really great spot nearby~”

    Anita was feeling strange after that transformation, but when Alt suggested the outing with him and Aluin, she couldn't say no. Too bad it was still winter, though, with all the snow.

    She looked older, but her behaviours hadn't changed, Anita flocked to ALuin's side, and though she did bring her Tinbox again, she also brought a packet of tissues purely for Aluin's use.

    Looking up at Alt, she shook her head. "Any hot foods, kay?"

    Aluin, who was incredibly small to begin with, looked even more so with all the layers he was wearing. He looked like he was drowning in his jacket and pants. But being warm was less scary than being cold, so he rather dressed too thick than too thin. Aluin had to almost waddle, so much clothes he was wearing.
    Anita looking older was scary, but it was still Anita and Aluin was by her side, holding onto her jacket with a tight grip. He was gently patting the snow on the ground, it was scary but the way it poofed a bit every time Aluin patted it made it bit less so. Soft, poofy things weren't as scary.

    Aluin looked over at Alt, nice scary dad, when he asked if he and Anita wanted ice cream. Aluin looked down briefly and shook his head a bit.
    "Ice cream is scary, it's cold and sweet."
    Aluin carefully waddled over to Alt and took a hold from his pantleg similarly how he had clung to Anita's jacket.
    "Bread isn't that scary. Can I have bread?"

    Altizica smiled ear to ear at his little darlings responses. “Alrightie I’m sure we can find some.....thing...to....” Alt’s gaze drifted to a nearby tree that seemed...unnatural as pieces of it were constantly distorting. This distortion grew and slowly would spread to encompass everything around Alt, Anita, and Aluin. Everyone else seemed unaware of this distortion but Alt had a look a distress. “ANITA! Come here! Quickly!” Altizica had an obvious worried tone. He was crouched down and his arms were around Aluin protectively, which would also wrap around Anita if she did get near Altizica. The distortion would become more and more intense until stopping suddenly all at once. The area around them had changed significantly as they seemed to be in a large pit in the middle of nowhere. “Why now why now

    Anita saw the Tree before Alt did, and was actually prepared to extend her tendrils when Alt started yelling.

    Dashing, she grabbed Alts arm and closed her eyes. Alt was always so calm, except for the times she got in trouble. if he was scared, what was this?

    Hearing Alt speak again, she opened her eyes. The ground was grey, and lacking all of the grass they were on before. The Walls of the pit were huge, leading up to a smokey sky. Anita didn't know what to think. With an obviously frightened tone, she shook Alt's sleeve. "Dad, kay. Where, where are we, kay?"

    Im normal circumstamces hugs made Aluin nervous and they were scary, but when Alt wrapped his arms around him protectively Aluin let it happen. Because he could sense something was wrong. He could sense something scary was about to happen, like a sixth sense. Aluin looked up at Alt and then at Anita, and he closed his eyes tight and buried his face in Alt's jacket.

    Alt's and Anita's fear hit Aluin like a sledgehammer to the chest, forcing him to open his eyes, and his own fear was amplified to a point where he wasn't capable of crying anymore. Aluin merely trembled in Alt's arms, looking around him in this foreign place, feeling most fear he had ever felt in his entire short life. Aluin opened his mouth, but all he could let out was a series of quiet noises and whimpers. Aluin squeezed his wrist with the power bracelet, he wanted to shift, something inside Aluin told him to shift right now, if he wanted to live.

    Alt was quiet, thinking carefully on what he was going to say. He didn’t want to lie to his kids but telling them the truth wasn’t going to help at all either. He took a very deep breath and decided to tell them what was going on. “This....is the center of the universe. Only a small portion of it but it gives to a good idea of what the rest of it is like. A bleak and barren land where only the monstrosities older than time dwell. This wasn’t supposed to happen yet, not with you two. You were supposed to be safe.” Alt sounded slightly guilty about this whole situation. His bonding time brought this terrible fate apon his kids. Infront Alt and the kids, a figure slowly began to manifest as bone, then muscle, then skin formed to make a humanoid body. This figure was much like Alt but both eyes were pitch black and soulless, as if staring into them led to a void.

    "The, the Centre, kay" Her voice was quiet, and she wasn't sure what she had to do. But she did know she had to protect ALuin and handle her own fear. The time she borrowed his power made her realise just how frightened he was normally, and it was only amplified by that of those around him. She took a deep breath, and wrapped her arms around him, extending her tendrils as well. Hopefully, they took away some of the fear he felt. "It will be okay, Aluin, Kay."

    She still had her ability to sense powers, and while she could see Alt in front of her, she could feel his powers concentrated behind her. That had to be the Big Mess.

    Anita knew she had to do something, and turning around, she stared at the being. "Hey, Big Mess, you, uh, Stingleheimer Propit, Take us back home and give my Dad back his powers kay!"

    Aluin felt safer when wrapped in both Alt's and Anita's arms, and his breathing steadied a bit. But that lasted only for a moment, and then the creature appeared. Aluin froze, as stiff as rock, and stared at the thing that looked like scary, nice dad but wasn't. Aluin knew this feeling, he knew what that thing was. And he had never in his short life felt more afraid than he started feeling now.
    "No...no, no! Not you, no! No! Go away!"
    This was the first time Alt and Anita heard Aluin raise his voice, and he started fighting against both their holds so he could get away from the thing before them. Hazy memories played inside Aluin's mind, memories of unspeakable terror and darkness and pain, and Aluin's expression was that of extreme fear.
    "I don't want to go back! It's scary! NO!!"
    Aluin instinctively reached for the bracelet on his wrist, so he could take it off and shift into his eldritch form.

    The Great Devourer laughed, their voice echoing across the walls of the pit again and again. “Oh shut it you little brats. I have no qualms with you but if your not quiet I might just change my mind. I’m here for the mistake, there is a job I need to finish. I even brought the rest of the family to watch.” The Devourer raised their arms and figures then appeared all around the edge of the pit, looking down on the group while laughing hysterically. Alt looked at Anita and Aluin “Aluin I need you to calm down. Please. Your okay, it will be okay. Just please calm down. Anita I need you to take Aluin and run to the farthest side of the pit okay? I’ll be fine but I need to make sure you two are safe.”
