Tiny little disclaimer: The title on this chapter is actually a line from a song by the Swedish group The Ark; “Two Thousand Light-years of Darkness”. I don’t own the Ark. I don’t own the song. I’d like to own the singer, Ola Salo, but unfortunately I don’t own him either, and it’d probably not make any difference if I did, since he’s gay anyway. I’m definitely not making any money from this so don’t sue me. Leave a comment instead. (It’s not fanfiction either, I swear! See? Not a Swedish rockband in sight in the entire story! It *is* allowed to use a song line as a title, isn’t it?)
Chapter 3 - in which some of Matt's story is told and Simon has his first encounter with the magic-book.
Not much to say about this chapter. The real action will start in chapter five, but my practical training starts next week so there’ll probably be longer between updates. I’ll do my best… Zak: “We won’t leave her alone, I promise!” Zinnith: “Oh yeah, I know that. But there’s this little thing called reality that some people must take care of before they can write ‘geeky fairy tales’.” Zak: “Reality? What’s that? Sounds stupid.” Zinnith: “You have no idea…”
Zak: “You just love to make me miserable, don’t you.” Zinnith: (innocently) “I don’t know what you mean.”
