[The Tower is stagnant, the only signs of activity confined to the second block. There isn't much time left; it might be a good idea to rest and do whatever strikes your fancy before the timer hits zero.]

March 25th, Hidden Floor

[David just happened to not be in the right place again. He'd completely missed out on Aria and Zo's escape from the bowels of the Tower, and the running battle to help them escape from the hordes of retrieval units.]

[What he did catch was the unusual swarming behavior of those units, down in the second block. That makes him beeline for Floor 101 and the entrance to the Hidden Floor. Upon which, he literally charges into the middle of the room, skidding to a halt on the ground.]

Arright, what da heck is goin' on here?!

[Seriously, this tower is going to fall apart in his sleep. He just knows it.]

Mm? What do you mean...?

*The reply is sleepy, from a nest of cushions on the floor. Enoch blinks up at him, confused by the frantic demand in the midst of otherwise relative quiet.*

[David glances sharply over to Enoch, but not out of anger. Mostly out of the shock of adrenaline that's still draining off from hauling his butt all the way up to the hideout. David's voice is a little less excited when he responds to the warrior-scribe, but still clearly unsettled. As he talks, though, he cocks a thumb back toward the teleporter.]

You been down around floors forty an' twenty-one? It's swarmin' with dose unit-type guys!

[Then he gestures toward the nearest chipped collar unit.]

Not like dese—like dat one dat was followin' you around!

*His own adrenaline crash is what's nearly put him to sleep here, and he drags himself into consciousness to answer David. Sounded like, much like some other people, he'd simply missed the chase.*

Ruana's turned on Zo at last. The units were sent after him and Aria, and we escorted them up here.

[David glances around. He doesn't see Aria and Zo right away. In Zo's case it might be more that he doesn't know what Zo looks like, having never seen him in person or even footage of him in the terminals.]

Wait, dey're here—?

[And half a heartbeat later, he adds,]

Why'd Ruana go after 'em?

Zo refused to bring any more people in.

*And of course, they've all seen twice now how she handles disobedience.*

[Now that David thinks about it ... it's getting dangerously close to complete power failure, isn't it? It's been a while so he can't quite recall the circumstance, but he could swear someone told him that Ruana is protective of Zo. Or ... that Ruana liked Zo enough to not do what she's done to the other admins.]

So even Zo's nothin' more to her dan snack food.

Now that he's betrayed her outright, yes. We must ensure his safety - if she devours him, she will gain all his power, and his power is much, much greater than when he was born. Not to mention, we need him to return us to our worlds. If we lose Zo, all is lost.

[David doesn't react immediately to what Enoch's telling him. He's mulling on it, working over these new details in his mind. At most, his lips twitch every now and then, giving some inkling of what he must be feeling—but then ...]

How'd you find dis out? Talkin' with him?

[Then, with a more earnest expression, he adds,]

And—you're not just sayin' he can send us back, right?

[While returning to Primal Earth may be a better option than being trapped in the Tower at the not-so-tender mercies of Ruana, or—whatever will happen to their souls when the power finally goes out for good, well ... how would returning to a universe devoid of life move forward in undoing the damage done to his dimension? So, David suspects there's something more to what Enoch's saying ...]

*Enoch gestures to the notes on the wall, offering a simple response.*

Dax's research.
