Captain Ghost


[[Part four of four! -- Long-format comics resume next update!]]

It was his turn to be outraged. "That's the kind of thing you tell a friend, Rika! Not the kind you keep bottled up and shoulder all on your own! I-"

"No! This is the kind of thing one friend doesn't burden another friend with!" she shouted back with equal intensity, hands clenched into fists. "It doesn't- or shouldn't matter, anyway! Anyone can go anytime, so why make a special deal about it? But people can't seem to get away from doing that!" Tears were freely streaming down her face, her exasperation visible. She held the back of her hand to her forehead. "Ugh. I need ta go lie down..."


She halted at the word, spoken like a command. Mathew eyed her carefully, no trace of concern visible. He was all business now, and that frightened her more than anything. His next words drew from her a venomous glare.

"I want to call in my second prize, right here and now."

"Tch. What else can you possibly have for me?"

Mathew fell to a kneel. There was something off-putting about his stiffness, about the whole of this situation, but Rika couldn't put her finger on it. All she knew was that it was sending shivers down her spine, and she did not like it one bit.

"Rika, listen. This is what I ask of you-"
