He had been lying on his bunk in his cell when he heard a loud crash coming from behind the locked door that let into the holding cells. The two guards jumped up and ran to the door just in time to see the latch break and the door come swinging open. The men yelled and pulled out their guns but were too late. Two gunshots, and the guards were brought to the floor. John stepped through the doorway, revolver in hand. He searched one of the dead guards until he pulled a ring of keys from his pockets. He ran to the cell and began fiddling with the lock. "Xavier hurry, where's The Omega?" He said as he tried the numerous keys on the lock. "Let me out first" said Xavier grudgingly "We don't have time for this! We have to get it quick before someone notices you're gone! Where is it?" Xavier thought for a moment, staring at John. "Alright. I hid it in the boiler room by the entrance where all the tools are kept. Now hurry up and get me out!" John stopped trying to open the lock. "Did you hear me? Let me out!" "Do you think I'm an idiot?" Said John coldly "What?" "We know why you took it. You realized we didn't need you anymore. This was your insurance." "I have no idea what you're talking about" blurted Xavier. "Oh you do. You thought that maybe if you took it, we'd still need you. If you took it, we'd have no choice but to keep you alive. You were wrong." John raised the revolver and put a bullet in Xaviers face. __________________________________________________ "He's dead? Why?" Asked Ems "You can't say it was much of a loss" muttered Celle. "We don't know." Answered Daniel. "A friend of mine found him and his two guards dead this morning after hearing gunshots." "That would mean Mortis is down to one man, [i]and[/i] killed out of order. We should expect eight more bodies then" said Moose. "Daniel?" Said Oran. "Does this place happen to have a library?" "Yes it does. What for?" Said Daniel "I've been thinking about Mr. Mortis. He has a reoccurring theme involving Roman culture. Could we possibly find any way to read up on them? It might give us some sort of clue considering we're stuck with nothing else to do." "That's a good idea." Said Snow. "I've been thinking about it too. His name 'Mortis' does mean death in Latin. I learned it during my nursing career." "Then let's go." Said Greg ____________________________________________________ After hours of looking through library books, Jason finally found something of interest. It was a chapter in a book of Roman mythology surrounding death. He read aloud: [i]"After death, the deceased will be met by Mercury and taken to the river Styx. Charon, the ferryman of the dead will require a fee of the dead to take them across the river, where they will be judged by Aenaeus, Minos, and Rhadymanthas. The judgment will decide where the deceased will spend eternity. The Fields of Elysium were reserved for the heros and warriors of men. It was a paradise where the greatest of the fallen souls would serve eternity with riches and feasts and every desire they could have. The Plain of Asphodel was for the common folk. A field of green grass and villages for ordinary citizens to live and play. Tartarus was for the criminals. Those who killed unjustly, stole, desecrated or harmed were left there to be tortured by the Furies until their crimes were paid for"[/i] "This tells nothing." Said Zhenya angrily. "We waste time here." "Hold on Zhenya. This might prove to be useful. And it's not like we had anything else we could have done." Said Snow. "She's right. Let's just go back upstairs and have lunch. We'll think of something else" said Celle. They left the library To be continued
