[Somewhere, in a slightly AU memento_eden]

[Private; Prose]

Ginko wasn't around when Booster woke up and sleepily meandered out of his room. This was a little odd, but not unheard of, so it didn't bother him too much. Mostly he was disappointed that he'd have to scrounge up some breakfast on his own. He tried to remember if there were any eggs as he knocked on the door to Ginko's room.

No response.

Booster opened the door a crack and all thoughts of eggs vanished from his mind as he realized that the room was completely empty. A frenzied search of the apartment followed, yielding no results.

Ginko was gone.

Almost as if in a trance, Booster returned to his own room and pulled out his journal.

[Public Journal Entry]

Ginko's disappeared.

I'm going to take the day off work. Somebody cover for me. And Ginko, too, I guess.

I guess I'm in the market for a new roomie now.

Wait-- Booster?

*double-checks the journal, yeah that's him!* You're...
...Ginko?

But. All your stuff is gone. It's too soon for the island to be messing with us again already.
Calm down-- Man, you're back. You disappeared a couple months ago, and I moved in with Kyouya upstairs. You remember me, too? God, sometimes the island seems to leave out memories from before, when someone gets brought back...

Where the heck are you?
I'm in our apartment. Well, I guess it used to be our apartment now. I disappeared? Seriously? I don't feel like I disappeared. What's today?
1st of February. It's never happened to me before, but it has to a friend or two in the past. Sora, if you ever met him, came back almost a year after his name disappeared from the room assignment list.

I'll be right there.
...February? Damn. I missed out on a lot.
More than you know.

...Almost took the day off work, hm?
Who said there's any "almost" about it? I've been gone for two months, I'm sure they can manage another day without me. If I even still have a job.
Sure you do. There's only been a few newcomers recently. ...

Including a tall woman who's the new stripper at the bar
Oh, you don't say? This sounds like something to investigate. It's only good sense to stay on top of who's who around here, after all.

... Whoa, I didn't think you'd come back.
Well, I didn't realize I was gone in the first place, so I guess that makes us even?
Yeah... uh, about that?

I remembered something kinda important, Booster. Apparently you kidnapped me back home.
...What? That doesn't make--

You've got to have me confused with somebody else.
If it were someone else, it must've been your identical twin with the same name.
I'm pretty sure my sister isn't planning on a sex change, so I guess we're stuck.

Why would I want to kidnap you, anyway?
I had some scarab you wanted. Apparently it belonged to a friend of yours? Long story short, I couldn't get the scarab off me, so you just... took me to some Batcave.

I'd elaborate more, but that's as much as I got.
The Batcave? Now I know you've got to be messing with me. Even if Batman ever used a cave to begin with and even if it hasn't caved in somehow, nobody's ever found it.
Apparently you did. Along with a bunch of other superheros... I think Black Canary and Green Lantern were among them.
...Other superheroes. What year was this? Because I'll tell you right now, the last year I remember is 2462 and we don't have any heroes around.

Yeah, apparently. This is kind of embarrassing.
I wouldn't worry about anything noteworthy having happened while you were gone.
I missed Christmas, I think that counts.
It'll still be here next year.
