A Fight From The Shadows Ch. 1"Flora, this way!" Luke cried, dragging her around another corner, the Family hot on their heels. They'd just escaped from the Towering Pagoda, their clothes having become tattered in the process. The brainwashing that their former mentor had used had finally wore off and they knew that, if they didn't leave then, they would never be able to.Unfortunately, Layton had managed to find out of their escape and had sent his men after them, not wanting them to make it to the Resistance.

The gallows had formally been reserved for Oswald, but, now, two ropes were waiting for their necks.
