Seconds pass as the world spins around violently for Sophie, she weakly clutches her skull and winches in pain as she feels a large bump already formed on her head. She slowly opens her eyes, making out the hulking form of Glenn standing a few feet away, his stance awkward and slouched over. As her vision begins to clear she notices strange marks over his body, and his face empty of any emotion. Suddenly he stands upright and turns his head towards her then jerks forward, lunging towards her. She scrambles backwards, screaming in fear as Glenn grabs at her relentlessly.
Gunfire rips into the air and Glenn crashes to the ground in a bloody heap. Sophie screams louder as a unshaven man in his mid forties moves swiftly from out of the shadows, a revolver drawn and held at the ready.
“WHO ARE YOU!” She screams as she shields herself with her hands in hope of protecting herself against further gunfire.
“Sophie McAdams, there’s no need to be afraid. My name is Javier Toddard, I’m a Detective with the special crime unit, you need to come with me,” Javier says as he holds out a hand towards her.
“Wh-Wh-What’s happening, you can’t be, you’re not real.”
“I’m standing in front of you, after just putting a bullet in your room mates head after he became infected by its word and attempted to bash your head in with a baseball bat. I think maybe you need to throw the real and the make-believe out the window and just trust what your eyes can see standing in front of you,” Javier says as he shakes his hand as a way of encouraging her to take it. “We can’t waste time, if it works out we’ve shifted the focus it will attempt a reset.”
“A-A-A, a reset?”
“You know, when you wake up from a really bad dream that felt like it was as real as everything feels right now, that’s a reset. That soulless piece of shit wants only one thing, and it’ll keep shifting the focus of everything to make it that way. We’ve only got one shot to stop it and we need Towns to do that, but beastly wants Towns to finish its story, so we’re in a bind and only you can help us out.”
“Because, that’s the character he wrote you to play. You’re the one who finds him and slays the beast.”
