::a bright loud flash, an angry roar comes as something forms, a tear in the air. White goo begins to pour out of the tear as two thuds are heard::

::the tear closes, enveloping the bright light that flashed, a huge pile of white goo on the ground::

From: Jauxzer

::staring up at a strange man and begins screaming at the top of his lungs, suddenly he bunts his heel into Merloch's stomach::

::Jauxzer begins guffawing:: He's a live one all right!

::Jylasia stands slowly with the blanket around her:: Honey? What's going on? ::she looks around confused::

And the new come again
So that all who used to see
Once again , can..

Take form to me.
