Jean's gone missing.
Kim is freaking out and right now I'm talking to her via comments and trying to help her out. I'm not sure how long I can keep her (reasonably) calm.
Kim doesn't know what happened; she fell asleep, woke up, and then Jean was gone. The only clue we have is a note left in the room that says this:
"Gurgles from the groaning innards, false life,
living in total fear of the -Gentleman-,
living under -HIS- shadow, for - are unworthy
An eerie glow, a glimpse of fog, a cold night, feeling
Vacuum, breathless, surrounding, icy, death itself surrounds,
Theres a - out there waiting for -, little ant
In pain by - hand
Slick sly slippery organs guts and tears,
We see yor- death
Tick sh tock watch the clock
That damned poor sick fool.
-Regards, The Church."
I asked Reach and Andrew who the Church might be. No response from Reach yet, but Andrew answered back with this information:
"...the closest I've heard to a group calling 'themselves' The Church is the insane ramblings of my old boss. James was very into religious motifs (hence the term Heretic) and like to use terms like that. [...] It's likely a collection of Touched Servants suffering the delusion of His origin as that of a God, if they're calling themselves The Church. Religious associations are a common symptom of His corruption, though..."
So current running theory is that a bunch of Hallowed ran off with Jean. Which is really, really bad. Kim is in no state to help herself or do anything about it, and I think she's really scared. We've got to get Jean back, for her sake and Kim's. Anyone have any theories? Heard from Jean? Anything? I'm going to try and keep Kim from having a freak-out until we find her...
P.S. ...I'm a little worried about Kim too. You guys saw what happened when her and Jean went back to her house. I just...I don't want to believe she'd do anything but...well...
P.P.S. Kim says she thinks there's a clue in the note, but it's so disjointed I can't tell. Any thoughts?
