Nanami stare at Dino "He has such sharp eyes" she said. Based on her fighting experience she can feel such a strong aura "he must be strong... wonder if i can spare fight with him. She now stare at what koi said "it seems like it isn't a joke"she said to herself while looking around. She then look at dino and walk to him. "you... you are strong right..."
The revelation of his death hit Shinnosuke like a punch to the gut. Shinnosuke stared at where the little tap in his hand used to be for his drip, it was gone with no mark. In fact the pain from the tumour had gone too. Was his life really over? He promised himself before the surgeons pumped him with the cold fluid to knock him out that he would survive, for Emi. To let her know how he felt. Was it too late? Shinnosuke took a gulp and turned to the cute girl Tomoe that seemed to know what was going on, she seemed nicer than the other crazy-looking guy, she'd help him with some answers, surely?
"Excuse me... err, Tomoe?" piped up Shinnosuke with his hand up as if beckoning for a teacher's attention, "What's going on here? I mean, my cancer is gone and I dont have any scars on me, but I dont feel dead. And frankly, I didnt ask for this. If I survived the operation then I need to get back. If theres any way so we can get bgack home, please, let us know!"
Takezo eyes were transfixed on what was happening in front of him, people were 'materializing' into the room. It was like something out from that old movie Tran! or was it Tron? People were being beamed in from the black ball.
What was going on? More people were beaming into the room.
His broke his gaze from the ball when the woman who was already in the room before him (Tomoe) broke him free from his bonds. She didn't stay around and went back to sitting with the other two girls who had beamed in after him. Takezo look around and observed the new faces around him. A few of them seemed to know each other and they were dressed in some tight black costume.
Bondage? he thought. It could be, there was a naked man (Andre) hiding behind the black ball. He was trying to get the attention of the woman when another man, who looked pretty much like a drunkard, started shouting at the naked man in English. Takezo couldn't catch what he said, his english was rusty. He took note of the angry drunk. It reminded him of his own dad, who left him 3 years ago. Takezo hated him.
A younger kid (Koi) then stood in the centre of the room and spoke.
Yeah, right... he thought. How could i be dead? He was there, in that room, breathing and listening to this guy. It certainly didn't explain what the whole laser beam/teleport thing was. Takezo stood up, put his hands into his pockets and pulled out his pack of cigarettes. It was crushed but he didn't care and pulled out a bent cigarette and lit it up. He took a deep puff and started looking for and exit. He tried the windows but it just wouldn't open. He looked out. Tokyo Tower looks beautiful at night.

No escape he thought, turning back to the room with the ball.
The guy in the hospital robes started talking to the older woman (Tomoe). He turned his attention to the ball and started examining it. At the corner of his eye, he saw the naked guy. He looked him up and down, the naked guy was well built... definately a perv he thought as he went back to examining the ball. He knew that the answers he needed would come from the ball.
Naomi stared at the girl who completely ignored her, looked around as if she wasn't there and walked off without reacting to her words.
She couldn't say if she was angry about being treated that way for helping or was sorry for the girl called Nanami who had to be completely confused and overwhelmed by the situation. Her view turned to Tomoe who had sat down next to her, and she shook her head.
"You are way better than me in talking to people."
She became silent and stared at the floor next to Tomoe. She remembered what she had offered her last time, when they had just left the room.
Naomi looked back into her face and said a bit hesitatingly, but overall very calm:
"If both of us survive this night... would you help me searching for them? Searching for the three men who... who did this to me? Would you help me to search and... kill them?"
"..." Nanami smile at naomi. "sorry, i don't mean to ignore... it just..." she looked at naomi and confused what to say. "You look like you know somethin' don't you.." she said. "damn!!" she scream and hit the black ball with all her strength. She hurt, but she feel calm for a while.
Tomoe thought about how she had pushed the teenaged boy responsible for the prank that cost her her life in front of a speeding subway and how utterly different her death was from Naomi's.

For a moment Tomoe felt guilty about encouraging murder, but only for a moment. It seemed like the only way for Naomi to get control over her life again.
"Yeah. I'll help."
She thought of how despite her shy nature Tomoe felt she should make more of an effort to help those she considered her friends.
"...Want to go out tonight? After, I mean. I thought, you know, um I should probably get to know the people I'll be killing with. Koi's a good guy and Dino seems to be going through a hard time so I thought..."
Almost as if he knew the right time to end Tomoe's awkwardness Shinnosuke spoke up.
Tomoe gave an annoyed sigh. It was embarassing enough introducing herself to everyone without having to relay what little she knew about their predicament.

There wasn't a training course when I got here."
John had just been mugged and shot in an alley way about 200 ft away from the entrance of his home. As soon as he closes his eyes to accept his fate, something weird happens. No longer does he feel the cold, rough concrete he once lay on dieing but the warmth and smooth wooden floor of a house or apartment. With little hesitation, he opens his eyes to find a room filled with people. I… My wounds… They’re gone. Where am I…? This strange place. Is… this heaven? I wonder if any of the people in this room know.
After standing up and then clearing his throat, he says, “Where the fuck are we?”
Maikeru looked around the room at all the unsure and confused people.
What on Earth is going on?
Pulling his cellphone out of his pocket, he started to punch in a few numbers, only to realize he had no service.
Piece of shit.
Shoving it back into his pocket, he decided to chime in.
"Does someone know whats going on? Are we all part of some prank or something?"
Tomoe stared at the black ball echoing Dino's words in her head. Dealing with people had never been easy for her, much less so when it came to traumatic events. Of the few friends she had in her time some had been raped and some suicidal and she'd never known how to react to any of them with anything other than silence.

"If you go and die I'll get a hundred points and bring you back just so I can yell at you. If you insist on being useless I'll carry your weight. It's what friends do."
She wasn't sure if Naomi overheard her conversation with Dino but even if she hadn't Tomoe assumed she'd understand.
"That goes for you too," she said to Naomi before sitting down beside her.
No one knew Tomoe's weaknesses better than she did, but for some reason her promise to protect Dino and Naomi didn't seem hollow. If a small and short woman with no real fighting experience could be of any help she vowed to do whatever she could to help her friends.
Jack had no idea what was going on, people were materializing in front of him, some of them were yelling, he couldn't understand most of it until he heard something that was like an angels voice to him, one of the men cursed at another in English! Jack quickly got up and walked across the room to the man who had yelled at the naked man. (To Dino) You, you speak english right? Whats going on? Where am I?
