I look up at the big man as my eyes refocus, "This can't be. Are you… you are going to think me crazy, but in a situation like this, are you known as Daishain? I've seen a picture that astoundingly like a thousand times in the few months. And are you Kyro? I've seen someone remarkably like you in a picture in workout gear that comes up about every fourth time I post to an internet site I'm on. Never mind, this just sounds crazy."
I freeze up, "I use Daishain as a handle on a couple of sites. But Kyr… Kyrroeth? That's where I saw your face, Bordeglobal."
"Why the bloody hell would that be the uniting factor? Is someone looking for people with common social interests?"
I step to the side, kneading my forehead and temples with my fingertips, muttering to myself, "It doesn't make sense."
I look at them both, "I bet the answer lies in that castle. Or, as I might say on that site where I'm known as ninja, perchence the truth layeth up yon road." Color very slowly returns to my face as I stand up.

"Agreed, but I suggest we wait here for now. People seem to be popping into this field once every few minutes. If that continues, we could be seeing a large crowd of confused individuals here in a rather short span of time."
"A connection between us seems to support the idea that there is an intelligence behind this event. Which in turn suggests that we were brought here for a specific purpose, not sure whether or not that is good news."
"But for now, the basics, Pretty sure this is real enough, and that this is not earth, in spite of the plants and animals. We're going to need shelter and supplies soon enough, again, the castle would seem to be the first place to try."
"Wait a minute, Ninja? No offense, but I could have sworn you were older, you don't look much older than I am."

I pale as I hear them speak. " Umm… " Walking off to the side I look around with wide eyes. " I must be dreaming. I didn't have anything to drink last night. I'm sure of it. " I look to the other two. " Daishain and Ninja. Unbelievable. Yes, I go by Kyrroeth on Bordeglobal. I feel like I have stepped into the Twilight Zone or something. " I study the castle with shaded eyes. " The answer might lie in that castle. Our death might await us there as well. I really don't like this… We could find anything here. Anything at all. We are pretty much unarmed except for Ninja's knife " I rummage through my front pocket of my shorts. I display a small can of mace. " Look at this. Maybe this will help. "

"Yeah, pitiful as it is, I guess your mace and my knife are how we're going to storm the castle. Let's hope they're friends."
"The mace should come in handy, but probably best to keep it in reserve for shock value, it won't last forever. There's a utility blade on my multitool, but if that castle is any indication of armaments, it might as well be a toothpick."
"Seriously though, Ninja, look at yourself. You look younger than the picture I saw. Was that not actually you? Or did this just get even more weird?"
I study Dennis closely. " You are right, Jason. He does look younger. The Ninja that I knew was practically ready to go to the nursing home. " I laugh. " It's good to have something to laugh about at least. "
