    Laying back in the hospital bed, Parker closed his eyes trying to stave off a feeling of dizziness and a weird sense of deja vu that had been plaguing him since he had been pulled out of the ocean yesterday afternoon. Pulled out - more like rescued like a fish in a net just as he was starting to go under as water filled his lungs and fatigue claimed him.

    Duke actually thought he was going to die yesterday, that it was the end for him that he'd never see Risky or Jazz, or Ronnie again. And while he was alive, he still wasn't sure he'd ever see his friends again. He had no idea where he was and his senses were going crazy.

    The idea of being here - wherever here was - all alone, made Duke uneasy and very antsy. He was actually beginning to regret jumping into the portal with the rest of his friends, especially if that meant their sacrifice had been in vain and all of them were dead, or lost... a thought that brought tears unbidden to his eyes.

    Risky was cutting class and snooping about again when she ran across a bunch of scouts. They were coming back from somewhere and talking amongst themselves. Normally she wouldn't care. However, they mentioned a familiar name. A name that was kind of mundane but way too convenient to be mere coincidence.

    She bolted off campus and straight to the hospital.

    Her body phased in and out uncontrollably as she dashed through the medical bay, ignoring all of the workers. She stumbled about and fell through many objects/ What room, what room did the desk person say.....she was cursing under her breath. She nearly missed the room, not having seen the number right away. From the corner of her eyes, the girl picked up on a familiar figure. She skidded against the floor and nearly fell over as she made a sharp turn.

    "Duke, you lil shit!"

    Marissa exclaimed as she marched right in, someone running right through her by accident. She couldn't bring herself to care as she dashed over to his bedside. "YOU'RE LATE!" She barked at him. In total contrast, her body moved to tightly hug her injured friend. Wanting to feel his body warmth. Wanting the confirmation he was there.

    She could feel the tears coming on.

    "Marissa...?" Duke murmured in disbelief when he very suddenly heard a very familiar and snarky tone (which he had to admit was music to his ears) enter his room. Scrambling to sit up properly in bed, his eyes grew wide when he saw that it was Risky! She was here too!

    "I - you, you're here!" he blurted out, tears flowing in relief and happiness as his arms went out to wrap themselves around Risky in an automatic response to her to giving him a hug... but as his arms went around her, they went through her, making him look at her in shock.

    "Risky?" he asked with real concern and hesitation as he wiped tears that were threatening to fall, also wondering if he was imaging things right now, or if she was a mirage of some sort. "What the fuck is happening here?"

    Risky noticed his hands going right through her. She backed up, staring down at herself. Anger slowly rising as once again her curse was ruining the moment.

    Wait....Jazz reminded me....

    That one dragon guy said something about emotions...right, she needed to relax. Relax, then she would have it under control. She began to take a deep breath and closed her eyes. Slowly her body stopped glitching as much and she became more solid. Her hand reached out to touch his, this time making contact.

    "That bullshit portal made me this way. I can't stay solid. Got a few pointers, but still pretty shitty." She grumbled lightly but quickly cheered up. "Fuck you for making me miss you, ya bastard! Where did you drop in from?"

    Seeing Risky back away from him, Duke watched in awe as she glitched before his very eyes like, well, like a ghost or a television screen on the blink. Normally, Duke would have found something like this truly fascinating and be full of excitement and enthusiasm, but at the moment, and because just he was exhausted and everything seemed so surreal around him, he couldn't help but feel greatly worried and very concerned for Risky.

    Looking at Risky, and following her hand when she laid it on his, this time feeling its warmth and weight, he automatically closed a hand over hers, gripping it tightly, afraid she fade away or something.

    "Fuck me? Fuck you Risky..." Duke grinned as he held her hand, "You jumped into the portal first, it's your bloody fault that I had to jump in after you," he bantered back.

    "And no thanks to you," he teased, "I landed in the freaking ocean. And you know how poor a swimmer I am," he added, acting all put out now. "Remeber the time at the swimming hole?" he said with a grin, reminding her of the time she had pushed him head first into the water and Duke had come up sputtering water and cursing like a madman.

    Risky burst out giggling. "Because you were being a thirsty motherfucker!" Though she had trouble admitting it, a slight tinge of envy kicked in whenever he started getting intimate with other girls. Being that she didn't find it fair to bitch and moan, she simply pulled pranks on him or teased him as a come back. She couldn't possibly get all mushy and end up in that black book of his anyway. She was a big strong girl with a fun best friend. She tightly clutched onto him too, wanting to enjoy the moment. Hoping that her body wouldn't start phasing again.

    "I ended up in a land full of tea-drinkers before those scouts came to take me. How the fuck did you end up in the ocean?" She didn't do the math or consider that the world was covered in mostly water. At least he was rescued though. The delinquent might have started round two with the scouts if they hadn't grabbed him. "I thought the portal ya'll opened up wasn't, you know, shit."

    She plopped down onto the hospital bed and made herself comfortable as she sat next to him. "Saturday and Jazz are around too. Haven't seen Eric or Anna."

    "Me? Thirsty?" Duke laughed at Risky's ribbing "Now, why would I be thirsty when I am constantly got you guys raining on my parade?" he asked with a teasing grin. God, it was good to see Risky again. Duke had been seriously worried when she along with Jazz had jumped into Anna's portal. He had a bad feeling when it had opened, that strange tingling he always got before things went haywire or some supernatural shit happened, but had followed because, well, how could he not?

    "Saturday and Jazz too?!" Duke said as he glanced at Risky in surprise, happy to hear that though, that part of the group had made it. That meant there was definitely hope for the rest.

    "And June?" he asked Risky curiously, "Is there any news about what happened to her?"

    "Well I'm not the one flirting with every girl with a nice pair of legs!" Risky roared with laughter. For once she finally felt okay. Just being with her best friend made things better. The grinning and laughter only subsided once June came up. With a light frown, the headbanger shook her head. "Nah. We didn't get to the Cryptid Zone. Don't know what the hell coordinates Anna put in, but we're in this world on a fucked up island full of weirdly friendly versions of freaky shit." She didn't have to censor herself around him or beat around the bush. She didn't have to deal with pressure over her lack of politeness.

    No, she could just give it to him straight. "The plan is to reunite then try again. NOT fucking up this time." Despite the level of confidence (possibly arrogance) she radiated, something seemed to be bothering the redhead. A certain sadness or worry hanging over her.

    "Believe me, it's not the legs that I was looking at, Risky, babe," Duke winked and then grinned widely, deliberately looking to get his friend's goat as he teased her about being the male chauvinistic pig that she often called him.

    "Geezus Christ, Anna..." Duke groaned, plopping back on his pillow for a dramatic defeat. "No wonder I have had my senses tingling since I got here," he said with a sigh, crossing his arms before him. "Every time a doctor or a nurse comes in, I start getting all funny..." he explained as he shot Risky a side glance, now understanding - sort of - that they were in a world filled with supernatural beings.

    "When? When are we getting together to try again? Soon, no?." Duke said as he looked at Risky, though noting too that something seemed off about her, so much so that Duke added an uneasy, "Risky? Soon, right? We are gonna attempt to find June and get home, yes? "

    Risky replied with a swift jab to the side. However, her elbow would somewhat phase through his side if it landed, lowering the impact of the hit. She was too focused on their conversation to really notice though. "When we find everyone. Which will be soon, yeah..." Her eyes turned to the ceiling. A frustrated sigh escaped her. She began to somewhat fizz in and out.

    "...Duke?" Her tone changed to a soft one. One he would only know from her more unstable points. "I don't feel so good. I...think I'm maybe a little scared." If there was anyone she was willing to admit her feelings to, it was him. Even so, she hated admitting fear. Fear was unattractive and made her look weak. It was much better just to bark at her problems and threaten them with an iron fist. "Some of these...people here are fake like in our town. Except here they're monsters on top of that. I haven't exactly made a lot of friends, and so many things here are different from home. I hate it."
