Hi, guys, it's me. I'm posting from a library. As my dear "friend" was kind enough to inform you all of, I managed to reach the Amtrak station when I suddenly felt something taking over my mind. It was like a thousand needles digging into my brain, and I stumbled trying to center my mind, so to speak. Then I bumped a heavily tattooed and pierced "gentlemen" and he shoved me away roughly. I don't if his intent was to send me down a flight of concrete steps, but he did. I passed out from the pain of my shoulder dislocating and woke up here.
According to the doctor, my shoulder has been put back in it's place (it still hurts like a bitch, but it's fading) and I suffered a nasty bump on the head. They gave me another once over and then released me.
One thing that sent chills down my back was that "someone" sent me flowers and a card. The card read on the inside, "Get well soon, Little Prey." Funny.
Oh yeah, about Black Leaf. I should probably gives details how I came to know what he looks like. Well, I was actually about to go to the Amtrak station. I stepped through the door of my room at the Inn but ended in a alley populated only by the homeless and abandoned buildings. I got jumped by a proxy in a Tragedy Mask. Unfortunately, I was in no position to fight him given how out of shape I must have become in the two months I was gone, and was tired and sore from being Moved earlier. He dominated most of the struggle, but I took an opening when he momentarily lost his balance when he slipped on a plastic bag. So I knocked him over, and jumped on him fists first and starting pounding him until he quit moving.
My heart was racing, my muscles were sore, and I was breathing hard. Then I heard a deep and raspy voice call to me:
"Having fun, Little Prey?"
I looked over to see a man in all black. Knee high boots, jeans, a heavy coat with the hood pulled up, and on his face was a white Comedy Mask. His hands were shoved into the pockets of the coat. He was tall. Not Revenant tall, but still very menacing in stature.He was flanked by four proxies, two on either side. They were dressed identically to him, but wore white Tragedy Masks instead.
"Get him," and the four proxies charged. I ran and ran though the alleys but they were on my ass the whole time, so I tried to lose them inside one of the distressed properties. I entered a particularly big one and created a messy pile for them to overcome in my wake and ran through labyrinthine halls and corridors. I eventually found an exit, and by then, it felt like my lungs wanted to explode and my muscles were numb. Of course, who should be there just on the other side of the door, but Dark Leaf, himself. I crashed right into him and was about to crumple to the ground into a pile.
He steadied me and held me by the collar of my shirt. I was pulled so close face to face with him that I could feel his breath on my face. He didn't say anything. he just held me there for a long time before finally pushing me back against a wall very roughly. I tried to throw a punch at him, but he caught it and let me have one in the gut. I was winded, but I forced myself to feet and tried to charge him to knock him over. I connected, but he caught me and used my momentum to throw me away. He then pulled me to my feet and said something I couldn't quite understand, the shoved me away. I was now on Main Street suddenly.
Regardless of my newfound safety in the crowd, I caught sight of him stalking me no matter where I went right up to and including my incident at the station. Then Black Leaf was "nice" enough to send me flowers and that blasted card and use my computer to inform you all of my situation.
Well, I guess that confirms Black Leaf's status under stick. He's an agent who commands proxies. Oh yeah, there's that number 4 again. Before, I was always hounded by groups of four proxies led by an agent. It appears slim has decided not to change that policy...except for that one guy. So if you see Black Leaf, give him my regards if I haven't already done that, myself.
And what the hell? I'm away for just a day this time already there's another guy labeled "Prey the 2rd" waking up with no memories, but this time being chased by slimjim, himself. I'm too tired for this shit! So redlight's prepping amnesiac "foxes" for slim to chase these days? It was bad enough when Robert was his main target. Now he's scewing with everyone, huh? And redlight's a freaking Revenant?! And possibly Jay from Anomalous Data?! Speaking of which, I better get back to "What You Are In The Dark" to see if Reach was able to answer m question.
Oh yeah, get this, my bill to the Inn has been paid, but not by me, and I received a phonecall from the local Wal-Mart, saying that they'd like to set up a job interview with me and that I had apparently sent them an application. I think it goes without saying that I'm intended to take up residence here for an extended amount of time.
To answer Scott's answer: no, I haven't seen a guy in a red hoody at any point since I've woken up (the first time), and given that dealing with me seems to have fallen to Black Leaf's hands, I doubt I will.
To Slice: Alright, I would love to try to meet up, but it isn't looking too good. I was grabbed right out of my room on the fourth floor and sent across town, for crying out loud. I get the impression that if it doesn't want me to meet you, I won't. I'll try to meet you on neutral ground (if any exists). I won't have you come to the Inn, though, since that's territory set up for my lodging by the construct. I imagine it won't either of us any good to have you there.
Quincy Market, perhaps?
To Liam and IggdrasilCore: kill Black Leaf, please.
To Black Leaf: shut up. I don't want to hear it.
