{001} Action || Inside 1331 Benny Street, and then the yard of said house  
[The bed Ashlin was snuggling into felt a bit different but that didn't immediately bother her. After five years of traveling she'd gotten used to waking up in places that didn't seem entirely familiar, but then someone moved beside her and it most certainly wasn't Bo-Bo. Ashlin's eyes shot open and she practically fell out of the bed in her attempts to get away from the stranger. The man just stared at her in confusion, asking her what was wrong, as if he knew her. She most certainly didn't know him. Ashlin expected Bo-Bo to wrap around her protectively, and growl at the stranger (no matter how futile that particular action would be) but nothing happened. 

Her eyes darted around the room, but there was no one here with her but the strange man-- who was getting closer, and no, no, no she didn't want him near her! Ashlin dashed from the room, looking around frantically for her Shadow. It was getting harder, and harder to ignore the sudden emptiness she felt as she reached out for her companion and found nothing.]

Bo-Bo! Bo-Bo where are you?! Bo-Bo, this isn't funny!

[She didn't care if she seemed crazy rushing around this strange house screaming. What did she care if that man thought her bizarre, she wanted Bo-Bo back now! Her voice was growing increasingly frantic, and she was on the verge of tears. As much as she wanted to deny it, pretend he was just hiding somewhere she knew Bo-Bo better than anything or anyone in this whole world. He might like to steal sweets or hide things when he was feeling mischievous but he would never, ever leave her alone when she needed him. Ashlin rushed outside, crying now.]

Bo-Bo! Bo-Bo!

[Her knees gave out on her once she was in the yard, the realization that she was alone too much to bear. Ashlin hadn't even noticed she was wearing a nightgown she'd never even seen before, and the fact that she had no idea where she was at all didn't even matter to her. All that mattered was Bo-Bo, and the terrible, aching the empty feeling in her chest that had her in tears.]
