    So it has been a while since any of us have done a short story challenge, so here is a new challenge!

    So something must be stolen and there must be at least three characters in it.

    Good luck the challenge starts now and ends next Tuesday!

    Sparhawk, I'm so sorry. I had good intentions to write a story and got distracted by stuff at home.

    No translation. But it seemed like it...quantum and gases dont mix lol

    New title: Doppelganger in town
