      Personally, the Phantom is the only comic that I really read and enjoyed. I’m not that big into superheros. The comic itself starts about 1936 and continues as far as I know till now. Granted, the last ones I read were a few years ago. Its not too common or too scare. The every day American kid likely saw the comic sitting on a rack back in the 40s.

      Teagan’s reaction is up to him. Isaac is merely trying something that might work.

          Teagen will not know about the comics. Rusted Knight might also have a particular answer ready for Isaac…maybe.

            @kimlikesart I’m just gonna take a swing at Teagan’s reaction.

            “Never heard of him.” said Teagan.

            Isaac felt his jaw twitch. He’s not a comic reader. Maybe history was better. Hopefully, Isaac’s was not too different.

            “Italy surrendered in September of 43. Mussolini is stood trail and was executed for his crimes. The Allies landed in Normandy June 6th. Cherbourg and the Cotentin Peninsula fell June 26 to the Americans. Caen has yet to fall to the British and Canadian forces. On June 11, the Allies landed in China. July 2nd, combined American, Japanese and Nationalist Chinese forces crossed the Yangtze and retook Nanking. Rumors say that the Axis forces are going to make a big push on all fronts.”

              Teagen’s eyes widened and he glanced to Libby. Her brow was equally wrinkled. He then looked back to the speaker, “Uh,.. cool. The only things I got from that were the words ‘America, Italy, and Japan.'”

              The man looked slightly stunned, Not know of the war? How could people ever forget?

               


              @rusted-knight
              That was good! Sorry my thing is so short. I really don’t know what would happen next…


              @arindown
              Does Libby have ideas?

                “Fine,” Teagen swallowed hard, and looked into the younger man’s face. Sure, the man looked younger, all except his eyes. They put Teagen to shame. This guy stood for something, something better than himself. That made Teagen feel guilty, “Fine.” He repeated, “I’m not saying I completely believe you, but, that doesn’t matter. I lie too,” He cleared his throat.  “Where were we? Oh yes, I was asking where we were, and no one knew. So,?” Teagen nodded, thoughts trailing off, “Do you know where some food is?” He hadn’t had anything more than clams for two days after all…

                    So do you think a search for a kitchen might happen? Or a search for escape?

                    (too bad Emory disappeared. She saw one (a kitchen) didn’t she?)

                      Haha yeah, I think it’d be realistic if they searched for a kitchen…and I think she did!

                        Isaac looked at the man. Food. He could use some. The ration cards he took from the bombed apartment were just about gone. The last bit of meat came from a rabbit three days ago. Anything bigger than that would do. How to find a kitchen? It wouldn’t be in this dungeon. It had to be above ground in an outer wall in case of a fire.

                        “Has anyone seen a window?” asked Isaac. “I’m getting sick of this tunnel.”

                        The Devil saw me with my head down and got excited. Then I said Amen

                          Teagen’s brows lowered a momment, then he glanced to Libby and nodded. “There was one back in my room, down the ‘tunnel’. But there were people when I looked out so we need to be careful. Oh and, how do you plan to get in here? No offense, I mean, I couldn’t squeeze through either, but, yeah. But, how does that help us find food?”

                          Libby gave him a hard glance then rolled her eyes.

                          “Unless,” he couldn’t be quiet to save his life, “Do you hope to eat plants or something outside? Geez, no offense, again, but, a mansion like this has gotta have some sort of food, and at that real good food. A wine celled too,”

                          Libby glared again, and she took a step toward the strange man, rolling her eyes and putting her small hands on her hips. “What do you want to do sir?”

                              Isaac reach into his pocket. The cube was wrapped in a black plastic.

                              “You guys mind moving to one of the corners of this wall.” Turning to the others, Isaac continued. “Y’all too. This will be messy.”

                              Ripping open the package, he began to kneed the material.

                              “What’s that?” Asked the boy.

                              “Plastique. Get to a corner and stay there. And build any kind of barricade you can.”

                              Placing the lump on the shelf, Isaac mashed it against the wall. Looking around, he saw the others were hiding suitably. Pulling a item like a cigarette from his pocket, Isaac put it in the lump and broke part of the tip. Stepping back, he surveyed the work. It was all done well. The wall did not seem like it was supporting much.

                              “Everyone, cover your ears. Close your eyes and shield yourself.”

                              Jumping into a gap between bookcases, Isaac waited for the blast.

                              The Devil saw me with my head down and got excited. Then I said Amen

                                Isaac has been talking to other people through a small hatch in the wall. Now he just told Jaylin that he’s using plastique to blow a hole to make a larger opening in the wall. Jaylin has been told to “Get to a corner and stay there. And build any kind of barricade you can.” and “Everyone, cover your ears. Close your eyes and shield yourself.” by Isaac.

                                That’s where we are. (:
