I thought he was just drunk, but this may be a hallucinogen.

"INSIGHT" they reckoned. Yes, Insight is what this small band needed to project.

Was Insight a product of contract extensions or was it a product of something else?

Was that hue orange? Or could it be tangerine?

Bill's eyes lit up as he realized what his trio had to do. They needed to educate the mob on the merits of Fort Worth, not Miami.

But how? How could they appease this growing mob, emanating from the memory of the shadowed man.

They needed something more. A beacon. A sign. What had been released by the huge mass?

Could they harness that? Was it the answer? What was it?

What was the hue?

The mob (consisting of ruralites) couldn't differentiate hues and believed all oranges were the same. But our trio knew better.

They knew of the ancient messiah, the Galactus, the Unicron, the Cronus... the eater of planets.

They thought of Les Miles' chant. Were they connected?

Whatever had been released by the huge mass was now approaching. The trio, the mob, the Kansas residents, Les Miles, Long on High, and Girod the Bastard could do nothing now but wait for its arrival.

A sudden ease came over our trio. While the rest were scared of this unknown approaching presence, the trio felt a rush of familiarity with it. Had they known it before? What was it? Was was the hue?

Spammer, it seems clear you're miffed about not being able to pass the background check.

The mob, now once again smitten with the murmur of the shadowed man, became blind to the approaching presence. Les Miles, Long on High, and Girod the Bastard felt nothing about the approaching presence. They didn't recognize it but they didn't react quite yet either. They waited.

The mob wanted Les Miles, Long on High, and Girod the Bastard to join them. Would they?

But what about the Kansas residents. Yes, the Kansas residents started to recognize the approaching presence too. But recognition for this group wasn't the same ease as had fallen over our trio. Their familiarity was from a different perspective.

Bill, Kerry, and Anthony knew they must protect the Kansas residents. With so much hanging in the balance, they couldn't risk the mob consuming Les Miles, Long on High, or especially Girod the Bastard. If one fell into the shadowed man's trance, surely the Kansas residents would go too.

They needed a new beacon. A new figure. They thought of The Todd. But was it too soon? The risk was high as bringing forth The Todd had been tried before by the shadowed man as an act of desperation and nearly caused the downfall of the entire kingdom. No, our trio decided to wait. To wait and to trust Les Miles, Long on High, and Girod the Bastard. This carried risk too, but they knew they could shield the Kansas residents from the shadowed man's trance at least for a little while longer. The risk of bringing out The Todd was simply too great.

Trust that you are feeling better after getting all of that off of your chest.

The three forgotten heroes knew something that the rest didn't. They knew how to identify the hue. They knew how to identify the approaching presence. It would be known by its number. Yes, a quantifiable metric!

A number of 4 or more would signal their greatest hope, their greatest joy, truly putting the end to the tyranny of the shadowed man and the restoration of the kingdom.

But, a number of 3 or less would signal yet another false signal, another destroyed dream.

Our trio knew the danger of becoming enamored with burnt orange and so they adopted a new credo, a new number, a new signal:

4

"Four," they began to chant, with arms locked.

The irony was not lost on them, their own numbers being three. As they visualized their new integer, they mutually decided they needed to add another. Without a fourth, they reasoned, they could not influence the approaching presence. Was the approaching presence capable of persuasion? Would their efforts matter?

They cared not. And so, with new resolve, they sought a fourth to join their party.
