Kado awoke early the next morning and quietly snuck out of her room. She went downstairs and into the restaurant where she had a nice breakfast. Then she decided to walk around the hotel for a bit. But for some unknown reason, she kept having the feeling that she was being watched. Kado frequently looked back but didn't see anyone. 'What's going on?' thought Kado.
She just kept walking on and ran into the Mindfreak store again. She decided to hang out there awhile. An hour or two passed and Kado was still in the store. As she walked around, she accidentally bumped into someone. She looked up to find JD standing there.
"Oh! Sorry JD! I didn't see you there."
"It's cool. Hey, have you seen Criss around? He wasn't home and left a note saying he came here. I can't find him anywhere!"
"No. You think he went to his dressing room at the theater? Come on, lets go look."
So JD and Kado headed over to the beLIEve theater and went down to Criss' room. They peeked in and turned out he was there, but something was wrong. Criss was laying in a chair with a blank expression on his face. JD walked over to him and tried to get him to snap out of it. He came to his senses right away.
"Criss! You ok? You were staring into space like you were a zombie or something."
Criss replied with a scratchy voice, "Yea. Im ok." He shook his head and stood up. "Oh Kado. I didn't see you standing there. What's up?"
"Well i ran into JD at the Mindfreak store and he said he couldn't find you. So we came down here."
"Hmmm, well since you are up, why don't we get you ready for the show later. We need costume design, and rehearsal. Not to mention hair & make-up as well. Shall we go?"
Kado nodded a yes and followed Criss to the stations. They first came up to the costume designer. This took about an hour or so before they got the right costume for Kado. She would be a rabbit-human hybrid character with a red short sleeve shirt. There is a white ruffled collar around her neck. She has a blueish-black tie that hangs down. Her rabbit features contain ears on her head, Rabbit hand gloves, a fluffy tail and rabbit feet. She wears light gray jeans that compliment the outfit.
"Hey Kado, there is about an hour of free time before rehearsal. Why don't you go have lunch or something and meet us here about 1pm."
Kado nodded and headed to the hotel restaurant and got some lunch. With 45 minutes still on her break, she walked around the hotel again. Then she noticed a familiar face within the crowds. It was Nightraven! One of Kado's best friends on the internet. Kado ran over to her and introduced herself. Night couldn't believe it! They spent the next hald hour talking away. Kado told her about her day with Criss and that she got to be in beLIEve later on.
"Hey Night! Maybe I can ask Criss if you could be in the show too! Watcha think?"
Night's face glowed with excitement as she replied, "Hell yea! You'd do that for me?"
"Sure! Come on!"
The two friends made their way to the theater and using Kado's backstage pass, got into Criss' dressing room. He was there playing a videogame in his dressing room as he saw the two girl come in.
"Criss! This is Night. She is one of my best friends from the internet. She is a huge fan of you like me. I was wondering if maybe she can be a character in beLIEve with me. Like a twin bunny to my character."
Criss looked up and thought about it. then he replied, "That's actually a great idea! The bunny twins! You guys could have the same outfit only her's could be different colors! I love the idea. Absolutley she can be in the show. I'll call the costume designer and tell him to make another set."
Criss got up to use the phone. The two girls sat on the couch and heard him talking. Then Night turned to Kado.
"Kado? This is the most amazing thing ever! I can't thank you enough!"
"Hey don't worry about it. I'd do anything for a fellow Loyal and an awesome friend."
Night just smiled and they waited for Criss to come back. He did and they head to the costume designer place to get Night her costume.
Later that night, it was time for the show. Kado and Night were getting ready as was Criss. This was going to be exciting. The show began. Criss was amazing. Kado and Night watched from the side as they were waiting to be called on stage.
"Now! I'd like to introduce two new characters! They are here for the night! I'd like to introduce to you Kado and Night the bunny twins!"
That was their cue. Night and Kado rushed onto stage and waved to the audience. But as they were getting ready to perform their demonstration with Criss, fog began to creep through out the theater. Kado walked over to Criss and asked him what was going on.
"Is this part of the show Criss? What's going on?"
" No...I don't know what's going on."
All of a sudden a voice came out of nowhere.
"Get out! This is my theater! I run the place and you do not belong! Get out!"
The crowds began to ran from the theater. The place was cleared immediately, except the people on the stage. Before Criss and the girls could do anything, all the doors suddenly slammed closed and locked. Then a figure appeared before them. It was of a man, he was shirtless with long deep scratched and cuts throughout his torso. And you could see right through him. He was not of the living. Kado couldn't believe it. She believed in ghosts due to Ghost Adventures, but had never seen one before. And she knew that they couldn't manifest themselves like this unless they used a lot of energy.
Criss walked up to the man and said, "It's you. You're the one who was talking to me this morning. What do you call yourself, spirit."
The man laughed as he replied, "My name is Joshua Huntsman. I died in the building here before this stupid hotel or even this city was made! I rule this area and you have invaded. Get out or you'll regret it."
Joshua disappeared at that moment. Then like a flash of Lighting, both Criss and Kado slumped to the ground.
"My back! It burns!" screamed Kado.
"Mine too!" exclaimed Criss.
The door unlocked as Criss' family, Kado's parents, and Night's family came rushing in. They ran onto the stage and took hold of their loved ones. Kado and Criss' shirts were lifted up and each of them had cuts engraved into their back in a symbol most unfamilar to all of them.
Kado was taken to her room, Night to hers, and Criss was taken home.
There was something evil in the hotel, and it was Angry. Kado laid in her bed and fell asleep, too exhausted to stay awake as if something had taken all the energy from her body. That night was a day they would not soon forget...
