When they both reached Arthur’s house, they trekked straight to the basement. “So, I guess, we’ll just have to go through every single book in here until we find our answer. I have a feeling that we won’t find it, but we have to try,” Arthur told Alfred.
“But there are millions of books in here. How are we going to find the spell before it’s too late?” Alfred asked, exaggerating at the number of books in the room, though there are easily about a thousand books, ranging from type and level of difficulty.
Arthur sighed, “I know, Alfred, but if we don’t try, what else are we going to do? If we don’t try and become our 2P, that would say that we just gave up, that’s all. There’s bound to be something in here to stop this, though I doubt we’ll find anything. We just have to try as hard as we can, so stop asking questions and start searching.” He looked through book after book, flipping through the pages for anything that could have some potential.
As the night went on and going through about a hundred books, they decided to get some rest for the night. Alfred stayed there so that he didn’t have to travel back and forth all the time from his house to Arthur’s and back just to go to sleep at night. In the morning, they had whatever they wanted to eat for breakfast and headed right back down into the basement, neither one had become their 2P yet. “Has anyone became their 2P today? Well, maybe they’ll just call. I believe they would do so, no means to keep it from me if I’m looking for the spell, well me and Alfred, but what does it matter? He wouldn’t be of much help anyways.” Arthur thought to himself and sighed.
“You ready to start again, Alfred?” Arthur asked him, sighing once more, starting to head towards the door that leads to his basement.
“Yeah, I guess so,” Alfred said, getting up from the couch and following Arthur. “I’d much rather be out there being the hero and not down here going through a hundred books to find a spell,” he complained.
“You know we wouldn’t even be in this position if you had kept out of my basement, let alone my house. You don’t say aloud any spell that you don’t know to see what it does. Things could have turned out a lot worse than what you did, but it’s still rather bad. I don’t want to see how this world turns out with our 2Ps taking it completely over. It’s terrifying,” Arthur said, looking through books, duh.
After a while, Arthur got a call from somebody. He took out his phone and answered, “Hello?”
At the other end was Ludwig, he sounded kind of worried I guess you could say. “So, how’s the looking for a cure coming?”
“We haven’t found anything, yet. If I find one I would surely tell you, though I would also tell you if we don’t find the cure, like it doesn’t even exist. But let’s just hope for the best. Is everything going good out there? Nobody else has turned to their 2P yet, have they?”
“Well, I would hope it was like that, but nein. When I woke up this morning, I sensed that something wasn’t right and Kiku felt the same way. Then we found out that Feliciano has turned to his 2P. I’m assuming Alfred is still himself, right?”
“Well, yeah, he is. I’m worried, though. Once I turn to my 2P, I don’t think there is anyone else who would be able to fix this. Alfred isn’t much of a help and I don’t think he’d be able to cast another spell. The first one was a stroke of luck, or shall we say unluckiness. I’m just curious as to why they haven’t, the 2P’s, tried to make any kind of movement.”
“I assume they are just waiting it out, they know that we’re slowly turning 2P’s, so why fight us when they can lay low until they need to fight. Unless the 2P’s just being around is causing some sort of chaos in the affected nations, we shouldn’t try starting a fight.”
“Yeah, I guess you’re right. I should probably go, I need to continue looking,” Arthur said.
“Alright, bye,” Ludwig said, hanging up the phone.
“Well, we’re almost done looking through these books, let’s just keep it going,” Arthur told Alfred, grabbing another book from the shelf and reading through it. They had only a handful left and they hope to be bound to find something soon.
Sorry the chapters are off. I'm not keen into assuming the first chapter I post is Chapter 1 because there are people who to prologues and/or epilogues.
