- A new night raises
While working in the labory, a big flame blows a test tube and Melanie is holding it, meanwhile. "Oha", she whispers. "Okay what are you doing?", grumbles Lionel who enters the room. "Are you going to produce such a goddammed elixir or blow Esteen?" "Yeah, calm down..." "And what's up with me over here?", Ivan calls from the neighbour room. "You just shut up and wait for Georg." "Yeah, yeah..." Lionel closes the door and pays his attention to his cousine. "Now as the guy with that toothpick and his invoice stuff hopefully shuts up, I'm gonna show you how to work with chemicals. The mistake you recently did could have been avoided from every 8-year-old, and also this Kirby knows you musn't mix acids and bases, I emphasize, they are not to be mixed." "Ok..." "Anyway there are several saftey rules which should be known also to beginners. You can look them up here, but it's required that you can read stuff." Melanie doesn't mind the defamation and takes the paper silently from Lionel. She opens it and starts reading.
While Lionel and Melanie began to do experiments, Georg walks through the Silent Land. He's on the way to the death beach where he's gonna meet a proposal new La Nuit member. His aim is a lonely house on a small hill. Simon Reflex is living there, also an old friend of Georg. Simon Reflex, a sorcerer, who's living in Traumland since it was discovered. He has extended his live with magic. He was banned some decades ago due to his magical abilities and had to flee to the dead beach. There he sattled down and lived many years alone. Then, one day Georg appeared. He'd been a young Waddle Dee these days and was just led astray from his way, and so he found his house while walking. Simon offered him to stay for some time. There Georg got known to the fact that Simon was a lonely sorcerer and he started to like him. From this day on, he started to visit him more and more and they got known better to each other. But then Georg became a member of the Schattensterne and wasn't able to see him that often anymore. He wasn't sure about how Simon may react if here showed up again. He took a deep breathe and knocked on his door.
