Given the shape his body was in - the numerous injuries and scars he had climbing a mountain wasn't advisable and Cameron knew this. He sighed and made his way to the next door in order to look at it. After all, he wasn't going to run the risk of worsening his injuries if he could avoid it. Thank you, but no. He'd not end up in such a poor shape he'd have to make himself another body like he had to in the past.

The next door was made of stone, and had a series of paintings on it, as if somebody had just taken to painting upon the door itself. There were multiple scenes on the door, each denoted with a large |. The first of these scenes depicted a shirtless man pointing at a sun above him. The next scene depicted a person laying on a table, with another person standing over them holding a vial of green liquid. The last scene depicted a square building, surrounded by flames. The door handle for this door was not so much a handle as it was an indent in the door. If Cameron pushed upon the indent, the door would begin to open.

Sadly once more the adventures didn't appeal to him. Someone standing over him with a vial brought back even more bad memories of how he had to rid the world of the Negi of Genesis Twins K2323 and Kai. So, he wasn't dealing with that thank you very much. A flaming building reminded him of the wars he had been made to fight. He needed to find something that didn't appeal to his bad memories and drag the trauma to the surface. And boy, was there a lot of it. He almost wanted to wipe his memories of his past, but he wasn't going to. Those who didn't learn from the past were doomed to repeat it was the saying, right? In any case he had no intention of repeating the Plexan War, or allowing it to happen again. He didn't care who he had to hurt in order to prevent it, except for Hope. He wouldn't harm her, but beyond that? Anyone was fair game. 

His first person he wanted to harm.  Kurai.

 

She was after all asking for it by her continued existence. Her NSF Barrier hadn't been pleasant to be trapped inside of and so she had to go.  "Hope, can we talk?"  He asked. 

He asked this as he walked once more to the next door.

On the outside of the Outerverse, a small girl and her mother gently knock on the outer barrier of the dimension core. The little girl giggles as she runs her hands on it. "It's so warm~" the mother chuckles warmly and smiles, looking to her daughter with a gentle gaze. "It should be. That's a good sign."

The very next door, Cameron would notice, appeared to be made of rather splendid wood -- mahogany, perhaps, stained dark. Unlike the last two doors, this one had no remarkable hieroglyphics or symbols, but the door was grand, in a not excessive sort of way. There was a square indent pattern upon the door, but it looked more decorative than anything. The handle to this door was a golden arch handle. Rather Hope heard Cameron or not remained to be seen; Would he see what room was behind this door, or not?

 

Elsewhere, the Outerverse would just slightly vibrate near the two new arrivals, almost like a purr. It would seem as if either whoever owned the Outerverse had answered the call, or more likely, the "door" was already open. The Outerverse would gently attempt to pull the mother and daughter into it, careful to do so slowly as not to offend or separate the two. It would seem that these two had shown up at an opportune time. Rather it was by pure chance, or through foreknowledge regarding the recent disappearance of the Aralang race, remained to be seen. Once pulled inside, the Outerverse would attempt to gently place the two upon the shore that Cameron had been upon earlier, where they would notice the grand castle on the island, connected to the shore by a magnificent bridge.

The door was opened by Cameron, as he was curious. Hopefully it wouldn't involve something overly straining on his body because he didn't really want to deal with the problem of being put through worse injuries.  He really wasn't in the mood for much of an adventure were he being honest, anyway.  Especially anything involving fire, as one of his fights had involved someone flinging fire at him when he had been organic. "...."

The little girl giggles as she promptly drops to the ground to hug it, squealing. "Spirit-mommy!!" The mother laughs warmly, smiling as she watches contently, though there was a hint of wariness to her eyes. She was always glancing at rocks or corners, anywhere an ambush could be waiting. When the little girl stands up and sees the castle she screams in excitement, before bolting as fast as her little legs could take her. "IT'S LIKE A PRINCESS CASTLE!!!"

The smell of old books, tobacco, and smoke escaped the room the moment the mahogany door opened, and before Cameron, a rather antique sight would reveal itself. It was some sort of library, or perhaps a study. Then again, maybe it was a smoking room. Inside, most of the wallspace on either side of the room was filled up with huge wooden shelves, full of so many books. What sort of books could the Outerverse generate? How had she gone about building this castle? All very good questions, and perhaps the books would reveal some information on that subject. Then again, perhaps they would be useless in such a fact finding mission, relegated only to the realm of entertainment, or speaking of knowledge on some lesser subject.

 

In one section of this room, there appeared to be a fireplace, off in a corner somewhere to the side. The fire appeared to be lit, and a gentle crackle set the calm atmosphere of the room. The sound of a chair slightly creaking could also be heard, and as Cameron entered the room, he would even hear a chuckle and the slight mummer of conversation. The further into the library he got, the better he would be able to hear and see what was going on inside.

 

Sitting beside the fireplace in two leather chairs were two gentlemen, one who appeared to be a young man about Cameron's age. His eyes looked tired and afraid, as if he had been through something rather traumatizing. His brown hair was rather unkempt, and he wore a blue bath robe with the letters "OV" written in gold on a patch upon the breast. In one hand he held a glass of scotch on the rocks. It slightly trembled as he brought it to his mouth to take a sip, while the other man spoke.

 

"But I'm telling you, dear chap," the other man spoke, "You still have your health, don't you? It's not the end of the world."

 

The other man looked slightly older, and he had a very calm demeanor on his face. He was the sort of man who had an unshakeable confidence, as if all problems could be solved with a little time and reason. Anyone who looked at him could see this trait clearly written upon his face, for this demeanor was a source of pride for him, and he was not shy to wear it. His red hair was well kept under a top hat, and he was incredibly well dressed in a three piece suit. In one hand, he nursed a glass of scotch. A pipe alternated between his other hand and his mouth, where he currently was inhaling a plume of smoke after his latest attempt to reassure the young man before him.

 

"I'm telling you, it is the end of the world -- my world!" the young man replied, a slight agitation apparent in his voice. "If all you're going to do is b- What is this?"

 

"Ah, there you are," the smoker said now, turning his head towards Cameron. "We were wondering when you might join us. Come, join us. There's scotch on that table there, and cigars in the humidor, though you'll be smoking it alone. Id here doesn't smoke, and I'm rather partial to this pipe myself. Well, come on. Close the door and make up your mind, you're letting all the heat out!"

 

A third, empty chair faced the fireplace directly, while the other two chairs straddled it on either side. A small, wooden table rested against the wall opposite of the fireplace, where a bottle of amber liquid with a finely printed, green label on it stood next to some glasses and a small ice bucket. A small, brown box was also on the table. If one looked closely at the bottle of liquid, they would see the words, "Outerverse Scotch - Double Malt" on it on one line, and "Making Waves Since 2062" on a second line.

 

---

 

Outside, when the girl hugged the ground, a gentle breeze would blow upon the shore, lightly hugging the girl back. There would be no ambushes here, at least, not from the Outerverse itself. The bridge to the castle was very safe and sturdy, made of stone that looked as if it had been hand chiseled and bonded with the finest mortar long ago. It would hardly be obvious that this castle had only been built half an hour before the pair's arrival. Two red doors with golden handles adored the entrance to the stone beast. Next to the doors, a black plaque with golden trim was mounted upon the stone wall, shadowed by the overhang at the entrance. In gold letters upon the plaque, the words "Castle Cameron" were engraved.

Cam was not the type to do any alcohol given he didn't per say have taste buds. What another joy of being forced to abandon his organic body thanks to the wonderful entity known as Plex. Really he longed for the days when he had been organic. Cameron then closed the door. "So who are you both?" He asked. Best to gather intelligence on these two, and figure out where he was.

The little girl giggles as she skips in, her mother trailing behind her, far enough to give the girl her freedom to play, but not so far she can't respond to any danger. "Mommy, who's Cameron?"

Her mother chuckles and smiles. "I'm not sure. I do know this wasn't here the last time we were. But then it's been eight years." She says, smiling as they head inside. "I wonder if anyone's home?"

"Who are we?" the smoker asked, raising his eyebrow, "Well, I suppose we're whoever we need to be. However; for now you may call me Mr. Ego. Now, do come in and tell me what you think about my friend's predicament. Id here has just been evacuated from his planet, that is under attack. What do you think he should do?"

 

Downstairs, the newcomers would find a beautiful castle inside, though no trace of people at first glance. The foyer was magnificent, with walls of white, trimmed with red and gold. Two tall plants stood on either side of the main entrance, and stained glass windows surrounded the double doors. On either side of the entrance, archways led into neighboring rooms. Ahead, a grant, magnificent staircase led upstairs, the stairs made of marble, with a grand chandelier lighting the way. Beyond the staircase, a hallway led to many more rooms.

 

Upstairs, there were even more rooms, and a grand landing or gallery which overlooked the first floor, from which the many hallways of the second floor began. Grand, white columns held the structure together, and a beautiful glass ceiling lit the gallery and the foyer below. There were undoubtedly more staircases and more stories in the palace, but the main staircase only led to the second story.
