"That's right!" Elias said, pleased at himself for helping Aen figure it out. He felt so smart right now; he didn't think he ever had to actually explain to a non-native that they were underground since, uh, well, they came from the above-ground. But no matter!

In fact, Aen looked so wondered by this thought, he seemed to shiver from excitement.

Elias pressed on. "So you might be wondering why you can't see the underground walls, right?" he said as he bent down to pick up some rocks by their feet. The rocks bounced in his hand. "Wanna test this out yourself?" The excited grin turned smug.

Maahes want to shake his head again, but the invitation to run a test was just too strong. Ignoring the way his essence was swirling even more frantically than normally, he leaned down and picked up a handful of rocks.

"I'm ready to test!" he agreed, grinning. He glanced back between Elias and the rest of the world around them. When he couldn't figure out what Elias was going to show him, he tilted his head to the side. "But what are we testing, Elee-as?"

Elias paused to peer at Aen. "El-i-us," he said, enunciating each syllable of his name. He could have said a joke about Aen's name, but there wasn't a whole lot he could mess up with one syllable. He was sure he'd come up with a delightful pun later on, though.

"Anyways, rocks!" Elias said, shifting his attention back to the stones he was holding. He held out one hand for Aen to take them. "We're testing the sky," he said proudly. "Take a rock and throw it as far as you can. We can do it together." The giant smile on his face returned. "Ready?"

"El-i-us," Maahes slowly repeated. The name still sounded funny and felt weird as it rolled off of his guise's tongue, but he was more distracted by what Elias was showing him.

He grabbed the rocks from Elias's hand. Holding them in his own fist, he readied his hand for the throw. "Ready!"

"Alright," Elias said, pitching his hand back while watching Aen. "Ready, set, go!"

He propelled the rock forward as far as he could until it was a little dot in the sky. Clearly, he had done this a million other times before. However, the rock didn't fly through the air only to have gravity weigh it down to fall; instead, there was a quiet scraping sound before the sky erupted into waves of color where the rock was aimed.

Swirls of blue, orange, pink, and black appeared and lingered, spinning like it was a galaxy, before fading back into the mid-afternoon sky.

Elias turned to Aen excitedly. "Betcha you weren't expecting that," he said smugly.

His eyes widened at the sight.

Entranced by the sky, he chucked his own rock right at it. Maahes couldn't help but give an excited giggle when the colors appeared in waves. It almost reminded him of where Odris always summoned him from! It wasn't as chaotic and this was definitely more defined, but it felt just like the Other Place.

"That's really cool!" he said, spinning and facing Elias.

"It is, isn't?" Elias said with a grin in his face. He glanced back at Aen, and for the first time, began to realize something was... off about him. He couldn't help but let out a little squint, quickly scanning him—until it clicked.

He was acted just like the kids at daycare! He knew there was something familiar about him.

Elias turned to face him, amused at the thought before already forgetting about it. "Hey, wanna push me on the swing?" he asked, already running towards it.

His eyes had already been bright and eager after seeing how much the sky reminded him of the Other Place, but he became even more excited at the thought of using the swings. He barely got to use those! He saw the Alteran children using them all the time, but he was always going to meetings and labs. Elias had no way of knowing how badly he had wanted to play with those kids - and how this was like a dream come true.

This was the best runaway attempt ever!

"I do!" Maahes replied. He raced after Elias. He couldn't help it. Even though Elias had the head start and Maahes wasn't used to having a smaller guise, he still had the bonus of not being Alteran like Elias was. He wasn't super fast, but he was faster - and was able to just barely beat Elias over to the swing set.
