Everything felt like a dream to Edmund for being in the Carna territory for the first time. Not only in the Fallen did they speak ill of the Carna, but so did the Fulsi. Never sounded like a good place to visit yet there Edmund was trying to talk some sense into Ethan. It was getting difficult for the Fulsi Scout to focus when his head kept racing millions of miles a second. Going from a desert territory, to an urban territory, and now in a forest in a single dome made Edmund uncomfortable at the thought of how many other places may have completely new terrain with other dangerous people. Edmund was not the biggest fan of change if it did not benefit him.
Looking up toward the sky past the canopy of the trees showed gray clouds with a decent chance of rain. Even though he did not want to get wet he knew that would help them escape with the water washing off Ethan and his own scent. At a fast pace Edmund tried his best to keep up with Ethan to talk some sense into him. To look for a person in a dangerous territory was a bad idea and the Fulsi Scout had to get Ethan out of it before it was too late. It would all be in vain if they both got killed trying to find Ethan's sister. The scene played in his head over and over again of the argument they had the night before leading up to this point...
"Are you crazy?" Edmund yelled extending both his arms into the air with open palms and louder than he expected at Ethan. "She's been, I don't know, brain washed by the Carna or something. She's lost, Edmund. If we bring her to the Fulsi, I know we can help her find her way again," Ethan pleaded to Edmund with such assurance. "Getting yourself killed to find your sister isn't worth it. Why would you risk your life to do that?" he questioned with a clear expression of distraught. "That's what family does. We go out of our way to protect the people we love and care about. I'd do that for you. Wouldn't you do that for me?" Ethan responded with a tinge of sadness in his tone to throw in a good guilt trip. Closing his eyes and taking a deep breath, the Fulsi Scout needed a moment to calmly continue the conversation. "Of course I would. Can we please go to bed? This is the first time in awhile we've actually had the time to be together without being interrupted with tasks to do. We can talk about it in the morning. " Ethan nodded his head with his eyes looking down to the left with an exasperated sigh. "Okay. Fine. We'll talk about it in the morning."
After sleeping for a few hours later Edmund suddenly shot out of bed looking around. Gone."Dammit," he said to himself when it became clear Ethan went to the Carna anyway. Edmund knew he would do that crap, but did not want to believe it. Throwing off the ratty blanket Edmund put on his underwear, pants, and shoes. He was still wearing his shirt so it made it easier for him to not have so many things to put on. Dashing out the door of the room in the Gospel Complex he raced down the stairwell to grab Ethan before it was too late.
Under his breath the Fulsi Scout repeatedly said the 'f word' over and over again to relieve some of the stress of what was going on. Recently Edmund noticed people were unaware of his presence. More than once did he scare the crap out of Ethan by sneaking up on him. He was not sure if people were just ignoring him or if something had changed. Edmund knew to use that to his advantage to hopefully not get caught while searching for Ethan. "You better be alive, you SOB!"
