After the Isle of Doom exploded on the Lab of Von Riechter, the city people started to mourn the loss of Meridiana. Buildings were torn apart and dispersed across the cracked streets. Pieces of broken glass was underneath everyoneís feet. No one in the whole city knew why the Isle of Doom destroyed Meridiana. They had no hope anymore.

Lucas returned to the High School hoping to see Adrian sitting at his desk, marking papers. Lucas slowly walked down the ripped hallway. Desks were smashed and bits of wood covered the long hall floor. Lucas stopped dead at Adrianís door. He sighed. Slowly opening the door his face was expressionless because he knew what to expect. Adrian was not there.
