the door quietly behind her...|
|Rising Shadow: Part FourMiaglo froze, gaping in bewilderment,
and Darigan felt a smug satisfaction at seeing his seemingly invulnerable antagonist
flabbergasted. The warrior's emotions were hidden behind the visor of its helmet,
but it seemed completely unfazed...|
|At the AstroVilla: Part FiveWhen Cypher reached the door, her mood was not
improved by seeing that it was not fully closed. It looked as if it had been
shut in a hurry, but was not fully locked. Gently, she pushed the door open
