    Karim followed, ducking another spear. “I’ve never watched Indiana Jones. Stuff keeps getting in the way.” He glanced behind him at the others, so far they were avoiding the traps as well. That was good. Now if only his headache would go away so he could think better.

    (AGH. I almost forgot about his headache! *faceboards*)

    Julius trudged forward, studying the gleaming spear. “Wait.” He paused. “I think I know where all the traps will are. I’ve been here for some while. And Lord Deathrock told me of them…”

    Random Stranger: "What do you want to do when you grow up?"

    Karim paused and glanced at Julius. “Really? That’d be good.”

    “Thanks.” Julius took in a deep breath. “About twelve feet in head of Delton is another trap, just so you know. Don’t freak out. Its another spear.”

    Delton froze. “Do not scare me like that again.”

    “Hey, I was just warning you,” Julius said.

    “Well, at least its just spears. I mean, the traps could be much worse, you know,” Aleck said. “And no, I am not usually an optimist, but I thought it might be helpful. Maybe. Anyway, another good thing about these is that it should be hard for Malcom Ace to follow.” Aleck suddenly stopped.

    “Wait, Julius, where did you say that spear thing was?”

    Suddenly a spear shot out of the wall. Aleck jumped aside, barely aware that the whole room besides him had gone into slow motion. As he staggered to keep his balance in the almost frozen room, he could see the spear slowly inching towards where he had been standing, and Delton’s mouth slowly opening. What was happening. He looked down and saw a card had some how made it out of his pocket where he had a whole rubber-banded deck, and was hovering in the air at the height of his chest. SLOW TIME, it read. Aleck grabbed it with a lightning fast hand and jabbed it into his pocket, launching him back into normal time. Suddenly everything around him sped up, and the spear was already sunk deep in the opposite wall.

    What was that voice in his head?

    “Well done, my son.” Came Malcom Ace’s recognizable voice. “You are learning.”

    Aleck glanced around disgustedly. Where was the card genius now? The voice disappeared.

    In front of all his staring friends, Aleck grabbed the deck of cards out of his pocket, pulled off the rubber band and threw the deck. They all stuck to his hand and didn’t leave. Why’d Malcom Ace have to give me these cards? I can’t even get rid of them?! Aleck jammed the deck back in his pocket and shrugged.

    “So, where to next?”

    Karim’s jaw dropped. “How in all dimensions did you do that?? I’ve never seen anyone move that fast!”

    Maybe those cards Aleck had taken out had something to do with it? Maybe?

    Delton just sort of stared. “Well… not the weirdest thing I’ve seen ever since entering this castle.”

    Anna halted the moment Kieron said that.  “Oh.” She suddenly began to feel like a million eyes were staring at her all at once from a bunch of hidden crevices in the walls.  “Uh-oh.  I guess it’s about time to unsheathe our weapons then?”

    Kieron nodded. “I’d say yes. You said you don’t have a weapon, right? Well take my sword, I can’t exactly do anything with it like this anyway.” He nodded down at the boy in his arms with a rueful smile.

    “Uh, I’m not totally sure. I can’t do it again, I’ll tell you that.” Aleck shrugged. He wished he could take the attention away from himself. “So, where to next?”

    Karim frowned a little, but didn’t press. “Well, just wherever Delton’s map says to go I’d think.”

    “Well, in that case I suppose we’ll be going right now,” Delton replied.

    Me: "Write every inch of your future."

    Karim nodded. “Okay. Which way?” He made a face. That had rhymed. Which had sounded strange.

    Delton continued on down the same route. “This one.”

    Random Stranger: "What do you want to do when you grow up?"
    Me: "Write every inch of your future."

    “Alright.” Karim followed.
