So here's what the buns said about what went down: a little after I disappeared inside the other blob's body, the buns started feeling the same stuff I did! The warm fuzzy feeling I was hanging onto, the images of them and how much they meant to me... all of it reached them, and right when that happened the big mean blob started screaming in terror and ran away, leaving behind a tiny little glob of myself behind.
When I focused on my new friends and how I wanted them to be safe, our minds all kinda touched - and that big jerk didn't know what was happening! And let me tell you, if you're on Syndomera and something catches you by surprise, the first thing you find yourself doing is run away as fast as possible.
Scientific records refer to this event as the first recorded instance of interneural psionic contact between an ozecium and a eukaryotic life form.
It's just kinda sad to me though... because the thing that blob was scared of was actually nothing scary at all. Just cuz something is new and maybe kind of confusing at first, doesn't mean it's bad. If I didn't learn that, I might have spent the rest of my life in this dump, not even knowing what I was missing!
Anyway yeah, after that the buns nursed me back to health by feeding me all their food, and then eventually they took me back to ARTRODUS and the rest is history.
This place is still the same wasteland it's always been to me, but there's still plenty of stuff to show you in the present. Let's keep going!
