Lieutenant Croft nodded, the four watched as the main body of the marines silently withdrew, disappearing back the way they came.

Warily looking about they cautiously moved the the office building, as they entered they noted the ground floor atrium had been overrun by foliage.

Mac sensed something, an aura or presence of sorts.

Hades stopped and made sure his shotgun was readied.
“There’s something not right here,” he voiced.
“Shit, Mac, this is Chicago, everything’s not right here!” Ty said only a hint of jest in his words.
“Yeah, but there’s something not right with the not right.”
Hades glanced to Lily. “You okay to take a look, babe?” he asked.
He knew she was still new at this and she might not be up for it right away.

Lily took a deep breath, looking at the other side was a relatively new experience for her.

It was hard to describe it was more than just being able to see another world because you heard, smelt and felt it, it was as if the surface world were underwater, clear and serene.

However this wasn’t, concentrating she closed her eyes, slowly inhaled, The Mothers symbol of the sickle passed across her minds eye and once she opened her eyes she was looking beyond.

She winced as initially her vision was assaulted by angry bees, however the static quickly passed albeit leaving a painful throb in her temples.

Her eyes widened “Oh my!”

Mac, Ty and Croft looked her
“Er Lil everything okay?” asked Ty, Mac could see the marine tense
“Yeah, yeah, I don’t know how to describe it, there’s power running through all the plants, it’s like....glowing green”. without realising it she’d stepped over to a particularly thick vine trunk, in the astral she noticed some form of swirling language covered the plants bark

Mac noticed that far-away look that Lily had. He’d watched her countless times as she’d practiced piercing the boundary to the astral realm with her vision.
He watched as she’d stepped closer to the tree, stepping up alongside her he put his hand around her arm. He’d lost count of how many times she’d tripped over something while she was looking elsewhere.

Also, he didn’t like the tree. Trees had a habit of hiding things in their branches. Insects and the like. And this was Chicago - the insect here could easily rip off a limb idle swallow a person while.

“Don’t look too long. You could expose yourself to unwanted attention,” he said quietly, giving her arm a gentle reassuring squeeze.
