What surprised me was that it didn't bother hiding from the family. They all saw it, and Kiba's mother screamed in terror. Her stepfather tried to hit It with a pan, and he was thrown across the kitchen for his trouble. I shouted at them to run, and basically did the same thing Kiba's stepfather did, though I managed to avoid getting launched across the room. I lead It out the back door, and into the city, where It eventually gave up on chasing me.
When I returned to the house, Kiba and her family were there,
all alive, though her stepfather had several bruised ribs. As can be
expected, Kiba and I had to explain things to them. When that was
finally done with, they were shell shocked. At first, they didn't want
to believe it. They demanded proof to what we claimed. The first thing
we did to prove it was me healing the stepfather's bruised ribs. When
that was done, I showed them the scars on my back, to drive home the
gravity of the situation they were now in. They decided that they
couldn't stay in their home anymore, and had to run. They didn't know
where they would go, though.
I wanted to stay and help them, though I new I had to return to the estate at some point. So, I told them that they could come with me back to the states, where things would be somewhat safer there. I then called Marcus, and informed him that I was in England, and would return soon. I then instructed him to contact the old estate staff and inform them that they could return to working there.
We stayed for a few days, so that they could pack what they needed, and finalize their personal matters. Then, when they were all set to leave, I opened a portal back to the states, and you all know the rest. A few more Runners have trickled in, but it has otherwise been quiet. Kiba's asked if she could post on here, so I suppose that you all can look forward to that. For now, I have a few things to take care of.
