Midnight Poppy Land 84: Spiral (with Erin and Jenn)

Midnight Poppy Land 84: Spiral (with Erin and Jenn)

We open with Tora on a bridge, overlooking Narin City. He thinks through his charged day trying to track down Gil and shoot him, unsuccessfully.   He begins getting upset at himself, and recalls Joe's voice in his head, telling him to keep a light on. 

He begins to panic, hyperventilating and blacking out, his negative thoughts swirling together with his affirmative thoughts and glimpses of Alice's encouraging sign at the restaurant.  Desperate, he calls out for Poppy, and hears her voice. He uses deep breathing to calm himself, just as Poppy suggested, and it works. He stumbles back from the ledge, literally and figuratively.  

Meanwhile, Poppy experiences a moment of inexplicable dread, and calls out to Tora in her mind. JANE AND MR. ROCHESTER!!  It's over soon, though, and Poppy resolves not to let Tora's behavior go. Her day gets worse as she misses busses and skins her knee, waiting in traffic.  

Tora, back on the bridge, finally remembers that he was supposed to pick up Poppy. He reads the multiple text messages from Elron (Brian?), tries to reach Gyu, and can't even remember what it was that he said to Poppy. When he calls her, she is short on the phone, and hangs up on him.  

And just to make the day even better, Tora gets another alert from the motion sensor near Poppy's balcony.  Another false alarm? A real scare? We'll find out!
