I am not afraidWould you believe I don't believe?
You don't know what I know,
And I know I don't know.
But I'm not afraid.
The truth is out there,
And I'm not afraid.
You want the answers,
And you know where to find them,
But are they true?
Who cares? Because you got some answers.
Don't be afraid not to know.
We both want answers about the world,
Where we find them doesn't matter.
Come with me.
We can search together.
We can be together.
We don't have to be afraid.
Chapter 32: 'Splanations
While Flurada worked hard to rid the MacEwan arts campus of all bombs, TIP crept up to the 155th street entrance where the man in charge of the operation stood. The man stood with his back towards TIP, watching the cars go by on 100th avenue. TIP stealthily climbed the steps. Doctor Rock, he said in a loud, strong voice. What are you doing here?
The man turned around. Who said that? he looked around a few times and then looked toward where he thought TIPs voice came from. Oh. Its you, Tyler. Its been quite a long while. How have you been?
Im not here to make conversation. What are you doing here?

Zak slowly opened his eyes. He was tucked into a hospital bed. He looked to his side to see Aurora sitting and holding his hand. He squeezed her hand gently.
She looked at him, eyes wide with delight, smiling with ecstasy. Youre awake.
I suddenly Zak remembered everything. The drama room. The man. Aurora. The gun. am. He jerked his hand out of hers to feel the bandages around his chest.
Aurora slumped in her chair. The doctors said you were very lucky. The bullets only nicked your vital organs, so you didnt die instantly, but if the ambulance hadnt already arrived, you never would have made it.
What about the man? Did they catch him?
What? Zak flailed his arms for a moment trying to sit up, but pain shot through his chest.
Chapter 30b: Fo' Reals
Flurada met TIP back at the parking lot. They debriefed each other on what they managed to get out of the men. It turned out their stories were very much the same.
Hey TIP, Flurada said. You probably live quite far from here. Do you want to stay at my place for the night?
Sure. That would be great. Normally I just stay at random peoples houses.
You stay at random peoples house?
Well sure. I stay invisible even when I sleep, so no one notices me. And then I just slip out when the coast is clear.
Why dont you get your own place?
Well, to be honest, super hero isnt exactly a high paying job. I cant afford it. And really, I dont harm anyone.
You should have said something. Just live at my place. Theres no rent. And the food magically appears.
