♡Chapter 8: Comet on the Case♡
"Hey, uh, Blume, can you stay over at the lab for a while? Like a couple days? We need to talk about something... see ya." BEEP.
Blume often stayed at Comet's lab for a while, so she found nothing off when Comet had left her a voicemail asking her to do this.
Quickly, she packed her things she'd need for some days and transported to the lab with them.
"Hi! What is it?"
"You better sit down, 'cuz this is gonna take a while to explain."
"Ok, what is it?"
"I have a theory that maybe you're not alone with this condition you have. Because I think there might be other people out there too."
"What makes you say that?"
"I... honestly don't know. I don't even have proof but I think somebody out there is like you. Think about it, the field is huge, no way you're the only one who's ever stumbled upon that place."
"That's a possibility, but Comet, I really doubt you this time. I mean, you don't even have anything to back this up. Even if there were, I-"
"Do you remember those two people?"
Blume fell silent. She had to admit Comet had got her on this one.
"It's a possibility, Blume."
"They were so far away, though, they probably didn't even have contact with those things. Now you're just acting crazy, even more than usual."
"I don't care. I'm determined to find the truth about things. And I'll probably look like an idiot if I'm wrong but at least I found out, okay?"
Blume sighed and Comet paused for a moment. It was true, he really had no evidence or reason to theorize about other victims. Still, he tried finding at least something.
After some silence, she finally spoke.
"Do you even know who this person could be?"
"My guess is just people who've interacted with the field before. As far as I know, there's only one of these fields in existence.
"Well,how are you supposed to find who is out there?"
"I guess looking on social media profiles is a start...?"
"Ok, I already know this is stupid but I'm going to help anyways. First I suggest looking through maps online seeing any other fields resembling the flower one.
Then you can go further into research. You can pinpoint locations and then study them. Start with that, okay?"
"I didn't expect you to offer that much help, but yeah, that's a good idea. I'll keep it in mind."
"Let's just stop wasting time and start the investigation now."
