    Ghost. Town. One of those places.

    If an ex-priest could take a Really? look and let it slowly simmer into a Fuck You Too, that's what was on the stove for Ursula.

    "Maybe that's it?"
    He looked from Tal to Misty. "What if this is, literally, a ghost town?"

    He swept a hand out.

    "Did everything change? Or did we... cross over?"


    After a moment, he reached out and gave Tal's shoulder an exploratory tap to see if it was solid.

    "Yes, that's what I saying," Tal snapped when Rory hit her shoulder. "The town itself is a ghost. The motel, the clerk, all the lights we saw, they were illusions. Or manifestations of ghosts. The Curfew was the time when the illusion would disappear. Or the time when the Town would shift back into...whatever this is."

    She frowned, stalking over to the parking spot where the RV had been sitting when they'd left the motel. She took a knee, her eyes searching for any sort of clue as to what might have happened.

    The Cell makes their way, over the precious landscape, and through the mold spores flying though the air, so think it was almost like a fog or a mist, to where they'd parked the Winnebago.

    There lay cracks; scars in the asphalt. Rust and grime could be considered their sutures with how think and permeating they were.

    But underneath the grime, and the mold, was the distinctive imprint of tire tracks...leading out of the parking lot, and farther into the heart of this ghost town.

    "Well, what I meant was..."

    Rory trailed off, slightly off-balance by the tone. Fair enough. Maybe he'd crossed a line with the tap on the shoulder. He didn't particularly like being touched, either. But it was the abrupt departure that silenced him, leaving him to look at the others left in her wake.

    "All right, then,"
    he finally said, nodding to Ursula. Seemed Tal was taking that route so he wandered over.

    Wandered, because he had no idea what he was looking at. He moved slowly, staying clear of where he thought they'd parked. Although he could no more discern a clue from the asphalt cracks that masqueraded as a parking than he could from the sky, he could at least stay out of the way.

    "Right."


    He nodded. In the vague direction where Tal pointed. That bit of asphalt in an ocean of asphalt. That looked totally the same.

    "So someone stole our van."


    Captain Obvious.

    "Wankers. Well. Lead on."


    Someone was going to get a left hook in the jaw before the night was over.

    A mixture of emotions played across Misty's face: controlled terror, suspicion, indignation, resignation. Her mouth finally forms a line of defiant determination.

    "Okay. So... So where dead or, you know, where ghosts go. If they go anywhere. Someone actually pinched our rider? Fuck. Er."

    She marched over.

    "Can you follow the tracks? Yeah... Follow 'em. I'm gonna kick this fucker's ass. No joke."

    "You're like a pointer." drawls the pastel princess, thinking of those dogs, "Knew there was a reason we kept you around." it wasn't said with heat. Or with any malicious intent, just words to feel the space between the cracks.

    "Motherfuckers." she spits, "The fuck to ghost's need our van for?"

    Nodding, gun still in had, "Cha-yeah. I'm with you Misty. Like seriously." baby-blues eye her gun. "Always wanted to pistol-whip somebody. Good as time as any. Yeah?"

    Off Ursula goes, following Tal as she eyes the trail, and the others in her Cell to wherever the fuck these fuckers, took their ride.

    The van had all her cloths and toys in it. Why wouldn't she want it back?

    The tire's imprints over the filth clinging to the cracked asphalt are what Tal's keen eyes have caught, and with her certainty and nonsense aproch she leads the Cell closer and closer to the van...and farther and farther into the heart of this ghost town.

    Seemingly just to contradict the desolate ever stretching desert wastes on their way back to the motel, the city's buildings were claustrophobic crowding, the street and each other. Appearing to be leaning on each other for support, like a swift breeze could knock down this rotting town, if there were any breeze to be had.

    The smell of rot choking, and the mold-fog think, so think in fact, that the Cell only saw their Winnebago when it was close enough to touch.

    Coughing and gagging, Misty barely saw the forest for the tree's. Coughing and retching through the sickening, soupy atmosphere.

    "Oh thank God!" she exclaimed. "Lets just get out of here." Momentary relief drowned out the hunger for vengeance. Then: "Wait! Why here? Those bastards still here!"

    Misty made an effort to check around the Winnebago for more clues, perhaps tracks. Between the turgid vapour and the claustrophobic dankness, she found nothing to provide an explanation.

    As far as Rory was concerned, the first words out of Misty's mouth were the best ones she'd uttered all night.

    He was breathing though his mouth, as if the world had turned into a neglected men's room with overflowing urinals. He'd been tempted to ask one of the ladies for a cigarette to drown the smell out when they'd stumbled on the van.

    "Nice going, Tal ."


    Had he doubted her? No. But he'd also been blindly following.

    "Want me to pop the door open?"


    He'd seen it done in movies. Stand to the side and open the door for the person with the gun.
