A simple question. It was one that Felix was curious about as he glanced over to the couch. Stephano was trying to figure out how to use one of the handheld systems Felix owned while Mr Chair was trying to tell him, resulting in the two having a loud binary argument. Jennifer was in the bedroom with Marzia, discussing clothes and Piggeh as well as Mayo were off at work, trying to get in some extra renovations so they could all tell stories easier. Keeping quiet, Felix sat at the computer, opening the Amnesia file and letting it load. The first thing he noticed was the fact that a small golden statue was running across the loading screen, chased by a taller one. They both froze, looking at Felix before vanishing in a burst of white binary. Felix frowned at the sight but ignored it, clicking story. The screen loaded but as the loading part vanished, the world was in much more disarray than it was supposed to be. Chunks were missing from the walls, exposing the code behind it. Items were clipping into walls and the sounds of battle echoed from all corners of the area, filtering into the Swede's headphones. It made him jump and he looked around nervously, making sure none of the others could see. They all seemed distracted with their own things, making everything okay.
Hesitantly, Felix began to move Daniel about, making him walk slowly and peer around a corner. His eyes widened and a silent gasp escaped him at what he saw. A smaller version of Mr Chair, looking like an eight year old or something similar was wielding a broken old chair, swinging it dangerously at the much taller attacker. It was something Felix instantly recognised from the battle long ago - A Barrel.
Felix panicked, moving Daniel along quickly, grabbing a stone and picking it up, throwing it at the Barrel. It hit him on the head, making him hiss in pain as he turned to glare. Narrowed eyes widened in seeing Daniel return to the castle, telling him that He was back. The smaller Mr Chair looked to Daniel a moment before swinging his chair, slamming it into the Barrel's legs, making the wood splinter as the chair broke. Barrel cursed as the wood broke, quickly moving and grabbing a piece that didn't break well, smashing the little Mr Chair across the face before throwing it to the floor, running down the corridors. Felix's eyes widened as he mashed keys, moving towards the smaller Mr Chair with haste.
Felix glanced over his shoulder for a moment, still seeing the others in the room. It irritated him but he remembered a little cheat Mr Chair had pulled up once. He pressed a button and was presented with a chat box.
"Are you okay?" He typed. Pressing enter, he watched his message in the corner before looking to the smaller Mr Chair. They nodded, sitting up and holding their badly bruised and bleeding cheek. "Who are you?" Felix typed again, sending the message and awaiting a response. A voice filtered into his headphones, higher pitched than Mr Chair's yet still the same.
"Jasper" The words made Felix feel a little off.
"Jasper..." The Swede trailed before jumping at the loud footsteps thumping behind him hastily as Mr Chair leaned over his chair. Felix could see him shaking greatly as he glanced Jasper on-screen.
"What are you doing Jasper?" Mr Chair asked with panic as he saw the injury on his face.
"I'm sorry Papa" Jasper said, looking away, letting his glasses slip from his face slightly. It was only then that Felix noticed how young he was.
The lopsided beret that Mr Chair usually wore sat upon Jasper's head but instead of letting little bits of hair stick out, it covered it completely, still having room to hang awkwardly. The sweater vest that he wore was baggy, hanging a little below his belt and his sleeves were rolled all the way up. Felix guess that they draped over his hands unrolled. His pants were long and baggy, ends unrolled and draping a little over his shoes. Mr Chair let out a sigh as he let his hand brush over the keyboard, pressing several keys quickly. Felix just watched as the glasses slid up Jasper's nose and his body moved, being lifted to its feet.
"Why were you fighting with a Barrel anyway?" Felix asked through his headset, deeming it safe to speak now. Mr Chair's eyes widened a moment before hardening into a glare.
"You were fighting with Barrels?" He asked. Jasper backed up a step.
"I-I didn't mean to! He was harassing me in the library and-" Jasper cut himself off as Mr Chair made Daniel step forward. Reaching over and taking control from Felix, the camera glared straight down at Jasper, making him tremble. He gulped as he tried to speak again. "It's Alex's fault! He keeps going out and picking fights and now the others are joining in!" Jasper managed to say, body still shaking. The sound was loud enough to escape the headphones, making Mr Chair sigh loudly. He quickly changed the setting so Stephano could hear.
"Say it again" Mr Chair said. Jasper nodded.
"Alex is picking fights with the Barrels" The sound of footsteps didn't even register as Stephano leaned over Felix's chair, looking at the screen.
"Alex is picking fights?" Stephano asked with shock. Jasper nodded, looking at the small screen. He held for a moment before running off.
"Come on!" Jasper called, making Mr Chair mash on the keys, chasing after him.
