Better Layton Never #47: Angel of Waters Edition Cameron 855585[View All]

#Ask/Invite #BLN #IC Thread

I AM. By license of he who is called I AM, I did come. On a blessed quest, my feet did stomp across the base earth. I did come, only for the cursed Lilim to strike me down with their Abomination.
And yet, I have come once more, unto this new world.
Yet... The world is quieter here. I hear not the siren call of my father, I AM, nor subtle whispers of my foes' mother, I THINK.
The quest is gone, I am left... incomplete, devoid of my destiny to become one with I AM to bring about a new world, free of the scourge of the Lilim, with their weak souls and corrupting cities.
And yet I find myself content to walk here, to listen to the song of the world, the soft singing of distant stars.
This world is full of the Lilim, yet I cannot bring myself to destroy them. This world belongs to them, to other strange races of unknown mothers and fathers, seeming to possess the fruit of knowledge I THINK, yet not born of Her.
This world is strange, vaster than it should be, harboring life when it should not, growing more and more on a daily basis when all the laws of the universe say it should not.
And yet it does.
I walk here, deep beneath the oceans of this world, the light of my soul shining out to the beasts of the waters, numerous in their numbers and forms.
I was the Covering of God. I am the Angel of Waters. I am Sachiel.
And I? Have come again, to this strange world of Rigel Prima.
For this is Better Layton Never.
This look fun to you? Check out the OOC thread first and let us know you're interested.

Yeah, neither am I, honestly... But still...

>And while that was really cheesy... Henrietta agreed. Nodding her head, she sighed and crossed her arms.


... You know, I think you're right.

>Leaning forward, she rests her elbows on her knees.


I don't know if I'm ready to try getting back into the whole "romance" thing, though. I've had a few... bad experiences.

>Smirking, Henrietta looks up at Mabel again.


Plus, I doubt there's anyone who'd like me for me. I'm only good for the sex. I ain't nice, or super pretty, or anything.

>The way she brought herself down like that was rather genuine. Her tone certainly implied she truly believed that, and simply accepted it as fact.


I mean, look at you; Friendly, pretty... I don't know, "motherlike"? I just don't think I'm cut out for... "love".

Thanks..

Cigars are alright... Too big for my tastes.

Depends on what's in 'em, if you ask me.

>It isn't long before they find themselves on the footpath that leads to the doors of the manor.


Ah, there it is. You ever seen this place before?

>The Manor... He had heard about it. As someone who lived in Town, he had a couple of opinions on the manor. On one hand, they are indirectly responsible for the trouble caused to the Town, on the other they have fixed the troubles and dangers in the Town just as much as the Riftguard has, and they were just a group of people minding their own businesses... He didn't really hate nor like them.

It's a interesting place, can't say I know much about it other than it being a haven for weirdos.

>did he count as a weirdo?


Not that being weird is bad...

She hated seeing people down like this. Self-deprecation was the worst.

"You'd be surprised what people's preferences are. Quite a few men would find me repulsive, while some wouldn't be able to control themselves. Being unhappy with the person you are doesn't do anything but hurt you."

Smiling hopefully at her, the cow tries her best to raise her spirits.

"I've really got to get a nap in now, hun, but if you need anything, you just come find Mabel, alright?"

>Henrietta shook her head, trying to get those thoughts out of her head.

Yeah, yeah... You're right. I'm sorry, I sometimes just get moody like that. I'm probably a little drunk.

>Standing up, Henrietta walks over to Mabel and holds her hand out as she introduces herself.


Thanks, Mabel... And you can call me Henrietta.

Mercury 877417

>>877414

>Weirdos. Oh, brother if only you knew.


Yeah, there's some interesting people living in there, I'm sure. I haven't met all of them, but...

>She shrugs.


I heard the rumors and thought I'd fit right in. It'll be nice, just having somewhere to come back to instead of wandering all the time.

"Well, do tell if you find someone, Henrietta!"

I want to get by on my own abilities, I guess... A place to stay is nice, but I don't want to cheat like this... Plus I've grown far too attached to the Town.

>he didn't want to sound rude to her though


But thanks for the offer.

>He knew not what they faced on their quest, only that what it was was likely big, bad, ugly, and wouldn't go down without the help of some heavy firepower. His specialty to be sure.


Gammmeerrraaaa.....Gammmeerrraaaaa...

>He sings to himself as he tightens makes the final adjustments to the scope. As he did he remembered the found memories he had with this very rifle. The various foes who had tasted it's wrath. Including, but limited to, Cell, a giant fire breathing dragon, and various members of Hydra. Good times all of them.


>With the scope now secured on, he lifts it to his shoulder to allow him to take a peak through the device to make sure it was straight and true. Of course the main way to do this was to shoot something, nothing of which he could without possibly starting an act of war. So he would have to make due for now.

Mercury 877427

Alright. I just wanted to be sure.

>Looking back at Rocks he simply asks.


You sure about that? Buses get annoying. I swear every time I get on one I always end up sitting in front of this dude who kicks the seat. I almost swear it's the same guy every time.

A magical place where you can get various objects needed for a lovers night in. They got all kinds of things. Booze, condoms, rubbers, various oils, I've even seen one where they had those small little things that shake really fast. You know, bbzzzttt.

>As he begins the drive off the lawn, he raises his hand. His thumb and index finger positioned so they hold a small invisable object as he shakes it back and forth in a rapid motion.


They also got cough medicine and stuff, but that's if you're really crazy.

>The dirt road from the manor would lead the duo onto the main road leading into Town. They would go around it as they quickly made their was on the road which would lead them east as Rocks advised.


So, I noticed less explosions coming from the manor lately. That's probably a good sign the hunters that've caught on are dwindling right? Or has this happened before?

>Keeping his eye on the road, Wade would only subtly shift his eyes over to Rocks in intervales as he continued to drive the car along the road. Traffic was scarce as not to many people bothered to own personal vehicles in a world they may be blown up at any moment.

Sort of... Back when I was a runaway, there was usually a time when I reached a new hiding place where I wasn't bothered. Sometimes it could last for a few weeks, but I was always found sooner or later.
>he leaned back in his seat slightly, looking forward at the road
Bounty hunters are tenacious, but lucky for me, most of them tend to keep to themselves when they find their prey. Hadd would certainly never speak to other bounty hunters about where I was...
>he turned his head to the mercenary again, but this time showing a small smile
And I managed to get three other bounty hunters on the good guys' side.
>his head lowered, growing silent again with a pause, then a sigh as he leaned back once more
I really don't know... Hadd just seemed to disappear from the face of the planet, and he never does that. He was always the first one to find me, and if he wasn't, he'd just tear through the one that beat him to it to get me. It's probably wishful thinking on my part, but... maybe he's finally given up...

>Wade did his best to keep the car driving a steady pace. Even with the roads the way they were, anything could pop out at the most random of times.

I wouldn't put my hopes on it. There's a thing when you do things like that for money. After a while, there's a point where it gets personal, and the money doesn't matter anymore.

>At this point, Wade would turn his full head to face Rocks.


If he's as determined as you let on, I'd bet he's still lingering around. Detrmination like that isn't easily broken, and odds are he won't give up until one of you are dead.

>He knew a thing or two about that. As he turns back to the road he thinks of his own quests for vengance. One in particular that to this day seemed to remain unsolved. Every resource he could spare without suspicion had gone into the hunt for his former partner. He didn't know what he would do when he found him, but he knew it wouldn't be pretty.


On that, you can be certain.

Right... that's why this is so important. When I'm finally free of the Lich, I won't have to worry about any bounty hunter coming for us again. And even if Hadd tries to make this personal, then... I'll just fight him off as many times as I have to. I won't let him hurt anyone again.

>Reaching his arm over, he snaps his fingers to get Rocks' attention.


Hey! Come on man, you can think about that stuff after we get through here. Ya gotta keep focused or the next time you see here is gonna be through a line of bandages.

S-Sorry, Boss...
>the redhead took in a deep breath, pushing away in thoughts about the sorceress, and focusing only on the blinking dot in the radar
>he nodded, then started to head forward
It should be in there somewhere.
>he pointed at the building before them
>the location worried him slightly, doubting that the dragon ball would have simply fallen into the hotel
>the likeliest of chances, someone had already found it, and was keeping it inside one of the room
>so how would they manage to get it from them?

>Artifact in a fancy hotel
>This place screamed unlegit.

Rocks, listen carefully. No matter what don't let anyone know why we're really here. If you think you can spot the person with the ball, just let me know.

>Wade begins to walk toward the hotel.


And whatever you do, keep your head down. I get the feeling we're about to run into a really bad crowd.

>Reaching his hand up, he pulls onto the door handle to allow them entry.

>the bellhop would give the duo an odd look as they approached the hotel, initially about to tell them off for even attempting to enter the premises
>however, he'd take one look at Dead's outfit and immediately halt in his actions, assuming that he was part of the Justice Avengers
>not wanting to get in his way, he simply returned to his post, doing his best to ignore the two of them

>as they entered, they'd find the main foyer of the hotel to be just as opulent and extravagent as one would expect

>the walls were made of a white alabaster, with columns of marble at the four corners of the room, stretching up to the ceiling above them
>the front desk was a few paces across from the doors, with two doorways on opposite sides of the desk leading deeper into the establishment
>the clientele that moved about around them fit the mold that the hotel provided perfectly, dressed in expensive suits or elegant dresses, clearly belonging to the high society of Silver City

>the radar would point to Rocks's left, at another doorway on the wall

>the doors were currently closed, with a sign placed nearby that neither could read from where they were

I think... it's behind that door.
>he turned and began to walk towards the closed door, curiously looking at the sign to see what it read

>Upon entering the building, Wade would immediatly begin to look around. There were enough pin stripes and suits to make the Kingpin feel welcome. All they needed was the mile long buffet and he was sure to be here.

Wow, if we ever wanted to get Alton to think he lived in a poor house.

>As he speaks, a cocktail waitress walks by, a hand carressing over his chest as she moves along.


And me without my red tux.

>As Rocks speaks, he looks over to the doorway on his left. Making sure not to alert any of the big wigs to his presence, he walks forward to see if he can get a better look at the sign on the door.

An auction?
>could the dragon ball really be here?
>at least all they would have to do was buy it, if that were the case
>unless the auctioneer actually knew what the dragon ball did, it was only good as s shiny paperweight, so maybe it wouldn't go for that high
>the redhead gave the mercenary a small glance, not looking particularly worried, only silently telling him that they should have a look
>so without a word, the mage put his hands on the door and pushed it to step inside

>An Auction. Well this simplified things a bit. At worst some of the biggest movers and shakers in this town would be here to get their hands on a shiny paper weight. Most of the big money would likely go to yachts, or property.

>That and the money he had made since his arrival to this world should make this rather easy. At worst he could try to explain to the princess it was business expence.

>as soon as the two open the doors and step in, they'd hear a booming voice

SOLD!

>WHAM!


>this was followed by the banging of a gavel, and an excited older woman moving up onto a stage

>she would walk up to an older, white-haired man, who handed her a gold necklace with a bright violet gem in the center piece

And the Eye of Isis goes to Mrs. Carter for five hundred thousand dolens!

>the woman eagerly puts the necklace around her neck right then and there, as the crowd gathered before the stage politely applauded for her

>as she descended the stairs to go back to her seat, the white-haired man would turn to face the crowd and wave his gavel beside him

Now, next is the infamous Clockman Diamond.

This treasure was believed to have been cursed by its original owner, so that all who would possess it would experience nothing but misfortune, until they passed it along to another.

>he said this in a "spooky" tone, which the crowd politely chuckled and guffawed at, clearly not believing the story

>the man would smile and nod his head, before clearing his throat

We'll start the bidding at one million dolens...

>Rocks and Dead would be able to see a few rows of empty seats behind the gathered crowd, who were all clustered near the front of the auditorium

>upon closer examination of the stage, they'd find a few more items still up for sale, such as a strange greenish-brown wood mask, and a pair of gems - one ruby and one sapphire - with had the omega and alpha symbols in them respectively
>naturally, among the remaining treasures was what they sought, the golden ball sitting comfortably on a pedestal, two orange stars visible in its center

>>877482
>he looked aside at the mercenary, pointing at the dragon ball
There it is! I have about seven hundred bits on me. Think that will be enough to buy it?

>After reaching their seat, Wade would look closely at the table covered in ancient artifacts. Likely some kind of superstitious legend was surrounding each and every one of them.

...

>it was not the dragon ball that initially caught Wade's attention, but the green wooden mask the lay next to it.


...

>Something about it...something in it's hollow empty eyes almost called out to him. Every fiber of his being was being called forward to it. What was this? Destiny? It had to have been. It was the only way that he would even be in the same room with such a beautiful artifact. He needed it. He had to have it. All he had to do was whip out his guns, shoot anyone who got in his way and-


>>877487
Huh what?

>Rocks' voice would seem to snap him out of his trance. His eyes now focused on the orange ball on the table.


I'm not to sure of the exchange rate in this country. Though I'm pretty sure the gold we make bits out of is universal.

>He whispers to Rocks as he leans down to his level.
