Ch. 3- Remorse and Rue9, 7, 3 and 4 followed 10 and 60 down a dark street of the dead city. Dead bodies and machines filled the roads. Hours past of walking, and walking, and walking. The five eventually reached a canyon. It wasn't very big, but the dim morning only made it scary. 10 and 60 hopped down a couple of rocks. The rest followed reluctantly. When they reached the bottom, 60 lit a match from her wooden foot. 9 thought of 2, the sweet old man who had once done the same thing. And then he thought of 5. He remembered making the light staff with 5 and being saved by the Cat Beast by 2. 2 and 5 had been there for him, and he let them down.
"9?" 7's voice pulled 9 from his daydream. "Sorry," he said, "Just lost in thought." 9 and 7 caught up to 10 as she ran her fingers over a purple curtain. 60 moved to the side and started pulling on a tattered rope. The curtains moved away to reveal a room. It wasn't really a room; it was more like an enclosed area with poles overhead, not a ceiling. Dozens
The Rest of the Family- Ch. 2"So, where is everyone?" 10 asked, fixing her headpiece. "Oh, uh--" 9 stuttered. "Were is daddy?" 60 said, pulling on 9's arm. 9 looked down at 60, here white cloth was complimented with her blonde pigtails and multi-colored patches. But he also noticed that she and 10 had keys around their necks.7 sighed "6, and the others, they're g-gone." She looked down at her wounds from the war.
"W-What?" 10's happy mood died down. "What are you talking about?" 9 gently took 60 off of his arm. "I I awakened something. It was merciless. I'm really the one to blame here." He hung his head. 10 grabbed 60 with one arm. "It killed them?!" 10 exclaimed. 7 walked over to 10 and put her arm around her. "If it makes you feel any better, 6 helped us destroy it. If it weren't for him, well, the others that died wouldn't be in peace." 60 looked up at 7 "The rain?" she asked. "Yes, something about the souls being released." 7 sighed "They are free now." 60 nodded and looked back down. 10 sat do
The rest of the family-9fanficThe last of the cloth from the ceremony had burned. The fire was doused by the rain, which had now stopped. 7 let go of 9's hand. "So, what happens now?" She asked. 9 shrugged. "Not sure, guess we should do something about this talisman." 9 said as he walked up to the now closed object.
3 and 4 tugged on 7's arms. "What is it?" she asked. The twins pointed out into the distance. "What in the-"9 said, trying to make out what he saw. Two small figures walked towards the four. "Get down!" 7 whispered, grabbing 9 and pulling him, 3 and 4 behind a rock. "W-What is that?!" 9 whispered to 7. "I dunno." She said, "I'll look" she slowly got off her knees a looked. "No way!" she screamed. "9, get up." 9 and the twins got up to see 7 talking to 2 other stitch-punks. Both had numbers written on their arms. 7 turned around and smiled at 9 "Uh, 9, this is um, 10 and 60." She said. 60 (who was slightly smaller than 3 and 4) curtseyed and said "Pleasure to meet you." 9, 3 and 4 waved. "10 you loo
