"Allen Walker, you are hereby sentenced to death for treason against the Dark Order"
"Allen-kun! … Allen-kun!"
"No. Please, God, no."
Sitting up in bed, Allen's breathing began to even out as he realised: It was only a dream…Just a dream…
"Geez! AAALLLEEENNN-KKKUUUNNN!" Startled by the sudden noise, he fell from the bed, and landed on the cold stone floor of his room at the order. Link was sitting up in bed, fingers plugged in his ears, glaring at the young boy as if it were his fault that they had Lenalee screeching at the top of her voice outside their room.
"Lenalee?" he said as he pulled himself up.
"Finally! You must sleep like the dead! Brother wants you in his office now! Something about a mission!" The female exorcist shouted through the door.
"Oh. Well I'll be out there in a minute, just need to get ready." Allen directed his voice towards the door.
"Humph. Just get a move on!" And with that Lenalee stalked down the hall, she knew she should not have been so grouchy towards her friend, but it was that time of the month and well… I know, I'll go get some breakfast; food always makes me feel better!
After Lenalee's grumpy departure, Allen quickly dressed, washed and brushed, and would have gotten out the room in record time, if Link had not caught him by the collar, and forced him to sit whilst the stalker got ready himself so they could leave together.
When the pair finally made it to Komui's office, Allen completed the ceremonious awakening of the eastern man.
"Lenalee's getting married." He whispered into Komui's ear. The magic words had been spoken, and the man jumped to life, tears ran down his cheeks, and a huge boggy hung from his nose, he also had his trusted drill in hand.
"Lenaleeeeeeee! How could you leave your brother for some octopus?" After a few minutes of assuring the over protective brother that Lenalee was in fact not getting married as far as he knew, Allen was seated in front of the crazed man's desk, and being briefed on the mission.
"So Allen, will you take the mission?" The said exorcist gave Komui a strange look.
"What do you mean, 'will' I? You act as though I should not go?"
"Allen! It's obvious something isn't right!" Komui exclaimed, ignoring the sharp look from Link who stood next to the door. "They say that you can take no finder or other exorcists with you! Only Link is allowed to accompany you, and it's a long term mission in the middle of nowhere! What will you do if something goes wrong?" He ranted. Allen gave a small, sad, smile.
"You know I have no choice Komui, and I would go even if I did." With this said Allen turned on his heal and walked out the room, pausing at the door to allow Komui to give any last details.
"You leave first thing in the morning, the train leaves at eight forty." Komui mumbled, his worried eyes followed the boy out the room.
That was the last he heard of Allen for the next three months.
