With all of what had happened, Alby had a lot of stuff to figure out. The veil, the alternate reality or whatever this was, it was all a lot, but he had more or less expected it. His greatest issue at the moment was one with his parents. It seemed they were no longer too fond of him staying there after the events that had just unfolded. But after a long conversation with them, a more pressing problem appeared. It seemed Eein had gotten into some trouble of his own. Without a whole lot of thought, Alby packed up his things and headed to the hospital.

It took a good chunk of time, but eventually he was let in to see Eein. He opened the door kinda slowly when he got there. "Hey Eein?..."

With a groan Eein would turn to see who was entering. "Hey there Alby," he'd say, offering his friend a small smile, though it was hard for him to smile given his current situation. "The nurses didn't give you to much trouble did they?" he'd say with a groan as he tried to adjust his position.

"Either way, thanks for coming," it was nice getting visitors, especially from Alby and Chris. "You didn't happen to bring any snacks?" he'd ask with a snort, "I thought the horror stories about hospital food was an exaggeration, but turns out it's just as bad as all the stories."

The dragon would motion to a chair that his friend could use. "So, how you been? I heard the whole island disconnect situation was already figured out."

"No, they were actually quite helpful." Alby made his way over to Eein. It sucked seeing him like that, but he tried to keep a cheerful expression.

As for food, of course he'd brought snacks. As reckless as Alby was, he was often well equipped. "Haha, figured you'd be hungry." Alby dropped his backpack down and rummaged around before yanking out a pretty large bag of jerky. "Tada!" He walked up to Eein and set the bag next to him. Then he walked back a ways and pulled up a stray hospital chair.

"I've been fine. I kinda knew what was going on back before the long night, then when the night came, one of these bad boys confirmed my suspicions." Alby pulled a compass out of his pocket. The compass wasn't working properly. "Unfortunately, while I was looking for the veil, they appeared in plain sight and I never got the chance to see them." Alby exaggeratedly hung his head low.

"Anyway, how're you holding up?"

The dragon would sit up with a groan, grabbing a handful of jerky from the bag and flopping back down. "Well.....we can't say we weren't warned I guess," he'd quickly devour his handful of jerky, even growing some draconic fangs as he did. "Still though....could have let us prepare for the island getting socked into another dimension."

He'd sigh, laying his head back on his pillow. "At least things can get back to normal....or at least as close to normal as things get," he was feeling restless sitting there, just sitting still like that wasn't something he liked doing.

"So, everything ok with you?" he'd ask, looking over at his friend, he knew he had family still on Earth.

Alby chuckled. "If I wanted things to be normal I'd head back to Oregon."

Speaking of that though... "I'm fine, just my parents found out sorta what happened with the island and they kind of want me to go back." It was less of a want and more so that they were telling him to head back, but that wasn't important at the moment.

"I'm not worried about that right now though, I'm more concerned with you." Alby frowned a little. "Did they tell you how bad you're hurt? Or how long they think you're gonna need to stay cooped up in here?"

"Don't worry," he'd adjust his position, grunting a bit as he did. "I'm sure once everything calms down they will too," he hoped Alby didn't have to go home, the scrawny kid was pretty much his best friend. "Parents always worry a lot, so that plus you getting pulled into another dimension so soon after the possession incident probably freaked them out a little."

He'd grab another handful of jerky and quickly ate it. "Yeah....though they didn't really have to, I was conscious enough to see it all," he'd motion from his waist down to his feet, "all covered in chemical burns."

The dragon would shrug. "Until my healing factor kicks back in, it was....kinda turned off when the burns were forming," he almost cringed thinking about it all. "So, yeah, we'll see, hopefully not to long, I'm going nuts sitting here."

Alby gave a bit of a nervous laugh. "I kinda didn't tell them about the possession thing. If they found out about that, they'd probably find a way to come get me themselves."

Alby looked pretty concerned as Eein motioned to a significant portion of his body and explained that it was burnt there. "And you said it was a plant that did this?" He knew this wasn't the time to do research on monster plants, but the thought of a plant that could do so much damage to someone as strong as Eein was a mix of terrifying and interesting.

"Well....here's hoping no one slips up and tells them," with all the madness the island goes through he imagines off island parents must get stressed a lot. "I'm guessing you don't want to end up getting dragged back to the narrow reality," he guessed the term narrow reality was even more accurate now.

"Yeah....a synthesis flower," getting half digested by a flower was quite the blow to his pride. "The one I encountered is dead now, but there's still more out there," he intended to seek out and destroy some once he was physically able.

"It sorta lurs creatures in and then digests it," he'd adjust his blankets. "So yeah...I was basically partially eaten by the fucking thing."

Alby definitely didn't want to get dragged back home. For one, he knew his power would slowly wither away, which would basically defeat the purpose to all of the training he'd done. But then the real kicker was how he'd have to keep quiet about all these amazing things forever, never getting to see them or talk about the supernatural again.

"That sounds..." Alby was about to say so cool, but quickly changed his wording when he snapped out of his admiration mode and remembered the situation he was in. "Scary." He frowned. "I'm glad you're okay now. How'd you get free anyway? Did you show that plant who was boss all on your own?"

"I damaged pretty bad with my freezing fire," he'd say with a sigh. "Some of my cousins had to help me out," he made a face, it was a humiliating situation. "One of them took pics before helping me out....then sent it to our family members to embarrass me," the whole situation was bothering him pretty badly.

"Anyways......," he'd sigh, "I'm alive at least." He'd poke his leg, flinching as the pain hit him, he'd hold his finger there a little longer before removing it. "Guess I should be thankful that my biology won't let me scar from this."

The dragon would run his hand through his hair. "Hopefully I'll get out soon, then I can hunt down a few of those flowers."

The dragon would grab another handful of jerky and quickly eat it.
