The Darkness Within, Chapter 41Chapter XLI
The night was long, Tanya hardly got any sleep as she kept waking up and checking on Tom to make sure he was alright. He was all the time she looked at him and she held him close to keep him safe and warm as she sighed. Tom reached over to her in his sleep, returning the warmth and keeping her close. As they slept the crystal in the living room started to act strange. The purple crystal started to ooze a thick black smoke into the house. The smoke seemed to be alive as it gathered itself and moved around over the living room floor, then up in the wall and disappeared into the ceiling. Tom rolled over in his sleep as he felt something in the house but was too tired and still felt sick to get up and see what it was. His wife woke up again before sitting up, she thought she had heard Jackson. Sighing she got out of bed and tiredly moved out and to the nursery seeing her little boy was still sound asleep making her relax watching him breathe softly. Checking the window t

Morning came slowly, the Spartan-Wolf on the couch woke up as she heard Jackson talking in his room as she stretched on the couch and yawned.
"Mm, morning...gotta make coffee." she said softly opening her eyes as she groaned getting up covering herself more with the couch blanket. "I'm starting to hate mornings.."
"Good morning Ma'am. Sleep well last night?" Isaac asked as his avatar appeared on his plinth in the kitchen.
"A bit, was worry about Tom, but I must of not heard anything last night." she said yawning.
"How is everyone?" she asked working on getting the coffee ready as she wondered what to have for breakfast.
"The little prince is still sleeping soundly, but..." Isaac paused making Tanya look at him. "Tom has left the house..."
"Left the house? Without waking me to tell me or a note?" she asked as he shook his head.
"That's not like him at all." she said now getting worried.
"I asked him where he was going at such an hour, he never replied back to me.

The next day was a good start, still a light snowfall as Tanya looked back at Jackson in his car seat with Isaac on the center dash watching everyone and where they were going.
"He's so adorable." Tanya whispered as Jackson was sucking on his binky.
"I bet he'll be excited to know where we're going to." Tom said coming up behind Tanya with the picnic basket. He gave her a quick kiss before he walked passed her to put the basket in the car. She smiled closing the back door and waved at Jackson who watched her carefully as she got in the front looking back at him.
"You're going to have fun Jack." she said making him giggle while she got buckled.
“Any new reports Isaac?" she asked as the AI shook his head. "Any new updates?"
"Well there is one. The creator, [ahem] Dr. Blake sent a message. Would you care to hear it now or later?" Isaac replied as his avatar pushed the glasses up onto the bridge of his nose.
"Now, if you don't mind." Tanya smiled, news from Blake

Hours had passed and it was starting to get dark outside. When Tom had left it was late in the morning. Tanya was worried now at what could have happened to her husband. When all was almost lost, Tom himself walked into the door carrying the bags from his errands and the food-market. Sighing in relief she looked at him and smiled.
"Snow giving you trouble out there?" she asked getting up to help him.
"Was starting to get worried when you didn't call." she said taking one of the bags of food.
"I'm sorry. I guess I lost track of time, the snow wasn't as bad as we thought. Thank you honey." Tom said giving her a quick kiss before going into the kitchen to unpack the bags.
Sometimes she wondered what he did out there for most of the day, the amount of things he had couldn't have taken more than maybe half an hour to an hour, unless the store was pack and traffic bad, but she knew she shouldn't think such things as she returned to her work.
"How did things go here? Ev
