Derim 23

[00:55] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (And all is silent…)
[00:55] Shadowcaller: (Indeed… hmm… what else?)
[00:56] Shadowcaller: (We still got Wren and Hector…)
[00:56] Shadowcaller: (Then we could fast forward to leave time.)
[00:56] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Well, first of all…)
At some point in the evening, Hector knocks on the door to Raea's room.
[00:57] Shadowcaller: She opesn it up. "Hi Hector… how are you?"
[00:57] Shadowcaller: *opens
[00:57] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Not much better than before…although I suppose…I do feel a little happier being away from them."
[00:58] Shadowcaller: "THats good… I guess." Raea smiles slightly and helps him with his stuff.
[01:00] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah, I suppose. It's just…I appreciate that they want to help and all. But they're not the ones in love with two beautiful women."
[01:01] Shadowcaller: "I doubt anyone can understand exactly how you feel Hector… but it's good that your not alone at least. It dosen't solve anything."
[01:03] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah…I have you, at least. You're still willing to talk to me…"
He puts his arms round her, "I'm so glad you don't mind sharing your room with me."
[01:05] Shadowcaller: Raea puts her arm on his "I wish it could be just the two of us… everything would have been so simple then."
[01:07] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Oh please…Raea…don't say that. I feel bad enough already." He stiffens slightly and hugs her tightly. "The other mercs…have you told them about this?"
[01:08] Happy: (come on, Wren… go for the polyamory!)
[01:08] Shadowcaller: She shakes her head "Not a word. It's privat matters after all, shouldn't worry the group about it."
[01:08] Elly: ( O.o )
[01:09] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Okay. Good. I wouldn't have minded if you did. I mean, you've given me advice…but…have you talked to anyone about this? Your position isn't that much better than mine."
[01:10] Shadowcaller: "I have talked to you about it…"
[01:10] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "But I haven't been very helpful…"
[01:12] Shadowcaller: "I can handle it Hector, I'm used to these problems… well, sort of. Comes with… being me I guess."
[01:12] Shadowcaller: (Murska don't fo much these days…)
[01:12] Aegnor: (Nothing to do)
[01:12] Shadowcaller: (Thankfully the next plot arc will involve Derek a lot..)
[01:13] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Heh, I'm glad to hear that." Hector sits himself down on her bed. "Weird, really, to think of you as stronger than me…"
[01:14] Shadowcaller: "Hey!" She gives him a light punch on the shoulder.
[01:16] Shadowcaller: "You don't think I'm stong do you?"
[01:16] Shadowcaller: *strong
[01:17] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I meant emotionally!" He says, grabbing a pillow and swinging it at her.
[01:19] Shadowcaller: Raea giggles and grabs another pillow swining it at Hector. "I was basically the leader!"
[01:20] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "You wish! I was in command for far more missions than you!" He dances away from her, then throws the pillow at her.
[01:22] Shadowcaller: "Ouch! Oh yeah? Who always got the last word when we talked?" She swings the pillow again, missing.
[01:23] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "And now I have nothing to defend myself with…"
Hector grins at her, trying to tackle her and knock her onto the bed. "Yeah, that last word was usually something as valuable as "okay", though!"
[01:25] Shadowcaller: Raea dosen't resist his tackle and lands on the bed with Hector on top of her, smiling. "I remember that very differently…"
[01:27] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Of course you do. You always were a bit of a know it all." He smiles down at her, then leans down and kisses her. "Still, sometimes you were useful, I suppose."
[01:29] Shadowcaller: "Sometimes when you used your powers, *you* where actually useful…" She says in a light tone, returning the kiss.
[01:30] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "So we, two of the best mercenaries, were both mostly useless?" He chuckles and rolls to the side, lying on the bed next to her.
[01:32] Shadowcaller: Raea sits up a bit, looking at him "Don't trust everything you hear Hector…"
[01:33] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I hardly ever trust what I hear." He smirks, "Didn't trust you to begin with either."
[01:35] Shadowcaller: "And you think I trusted you at the start? You with you demon powers…" She leans closer to him.
[01:35] Shadowcaller: *your
[01:36] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I suppose not. I suppose I was one of the last of the regulars to earn your trust."
[01:38] Shadowcaller: "…yeah, I guess… now that you mention it.." Raea ponders this a moment.
[01:38] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Well, you know, someone with weird powers is never as easy to trust…"
[01:39] Shadowcaller: "You tell me, I never even seen a demon."
[01:39] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Be glad that you haven't. They're vicious things."
[01:43] Shadowcaller: "I imagine so. How mnay have you seen?"
[01:44] Shadowcaller: *many
[01:44] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Too many. Weird monkey ones, big flying ones, one that was…some sort of giant suit of armour. Huge flaming golem things…infernals they were called…um, some sort of tentacle…tree things…bigger flying ones…one that had some sort of flame breath. I think that's all of the different types."
[01:45] Shadowcaller: "…right. It sounds I should be glad."
[01:45] Wolfbane: (He's missing an obvious one. :P)
[01:46] Shadowcaller: (Well, I guess Raea don't count Bealron demons as… demons.)
[01:47] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Hector just listed 'em off the top of his head. Bealrons are too…not-evil to fall straight into the demons category.)
"Yeah. Still, some sort of silver weapon will put them in their place. They hate silver for some reason."
[01:48] Wolfbane: (I meant Maelly, but okay )
[01:49] Shadowcaller: "Hard that much, and iron is supposed to be good too."
[01:49] Shadowcaller: *heard
[01:49] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Iron…huh. I was so clueless, I didn't even believe they existed to start off with."
[01:50] Shadowcaller: "Really? Despite the Ithari?" She smiles again runs her hand throught his hair.
[01:52] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Didn't pay much attention to them. Usually had a job to do. Same reason I didn't pay enough attention to you before."
[01:53] Shadowcaller: "Blinded by work eh?"
[01:55] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Completely. I'm surprised I remembered your names…"
He sighs and runs a hand along her arm, those muscles of hers getting his attention once more.
"You know, if I had paid more attention in the past, this wouldn't have happened either."
[01:57] Shadowcaller: "But you wouldn't.." Raea stops herself. "If I had paid more attention… well, then I wouldn't where I would be today."
[01:58] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I wouldn't…wouldn't what?" Hector asks, confused. "How much attention did you pay anyway? I mean, I hope I wasn't so stupid as to completely ignore you if you tried to drop a hint or two."
[01:59] Shadowcaller: "I didn't drop any hints, you were all work. Didn't want to distract you…"
[02:01] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I really…really wish one of us had." Hector suddenly gets up. "Anyway, there's no point thinking too much about it now. I'm going to sleep."
[02:02] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… I guess we should. You talk to Wren again tomorrow?"
[02:03] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Of course, Raea. You're right, you two need to meet. Hopefully she'll at least talk to me tomorrow."
[02:04] Shadowcaller: "I hope so too, she can't hide forever."
[02:05] Shadowcaller: (You can run but you cannot hide Wren!)
[02:06] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Actually…it's pretty much the exact reverse of that :P)
Anyway…Hector grabs the pillows, puts them back on Raea's bed, then lies down on it next to her and goes to sleep.
[02:06] Shadowcaller: Indeed
[02:07] Shadowcaller: Got plot for Murska tomorrow… <.<
[02:08] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Awesome!
What day are we up to now?
[02:09] Shadowcaller: 5? 4?
[02:09] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: 5
[02:10] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Day 5…
*louder creepy music accompanied by dripping blood*
[02:16] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Creepy music froze demons! Nooo!)
[02:16] Shadowcaller: (Demons freezes hector…)
[02:17] Aegnor: (Derek freezes demons)
[02:17] Shadowcaller: (Dragon freezes Derek.)
[02:18] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Huh…)
Well, Hector ain't gonna be waking early today. Raea is definitely gonna wake up before him.
[02:19] Shadowcaller: Yeah… I guess she wakes him up in time for breakfast.
[02:20] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Hooray! Food!
[02:20] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Hector, naturally, responds initially with a muffled grunt before eventually giving in and getting up.
[02:22] Shadowcaller: (Hm, sec.)
[02:24] Shadowcaller: "How are you sleepyhead?"
[02:25] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Better…I don't have a headache now, at least."
[02:25] Shadowcaller: "Good to hear that… I'm getting some breakfast, want something?"
[02:27] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Uh, yeah, sure. That'd be nice…"
[02:27] Shadowcaller: (Running low on batteries…)
[02:28] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (dun dun dun?)
[02:28] Shadowcaller: (AKA, my batteries.) "What do you like?"
[02:29] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "You don't remember? Anything with plenty of meat in it!"
[02:30] Shadowcaller: "Hmph, thought you would have widen your horizons a bit by now."
[02:30] Shadowcaller: "But sure, a big pile of meat coming up."
[02:31] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Preferably cooked!" He shouts after her, chuckling.
[02:33] Shadowcaller: She returns with some cooked meat after a while, and some other food for her.
[02:33] Shadowcaller: "Here, hope you like that."
[02:35] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Mmm, smells good. You okay if we meet a little earlier this evening? If I can persuade Wren to come, I imagine it's going to take a while to…talk about everything."
[02:38] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… of course Hector. We must talk after all, it wouldn't work otherwise."
[02:39] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Good. Um…just so you know…I might not mention that I've been sleeping here the past couple of nights. I…really want to actually talk to her. I don't want to make things worse."
[02:39] Elly: ( Too late for that. =p )
[02:40] Shadowcaller: "…I can do that." Raea replies shortly.
[02:40] Elly: ( And now you're hurting her feelings!)
[02:42] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Raea…I needed to be with someone, with you, but I haven't got much time. And if Wren won't talk to me soon, then…it'll be too late. Your company has been wonderful, you've been so helpful…but letting her know any of that…it'll only make things worse for the moment."
[02:43] Shadowcaller: "Yeah, I understand… it's okay, it really is."
[02:43] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Sorry. I didn't mean to make it sound so…bad."
[02:45] Shadowcaller: "Stop worrying Hector, focus on whats important." Raea looks drirectly into Hectors eyes. "Talk to her."
[02:46] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I will! I will! And I'll make sure she knows what'll happen if we don't talk." Hector puts his breakfast to one side, walks round to Raea, and hugs her. "I won't let this drag on any longer, I promise."
[02:48] Shadowcaller: "Good… you are making the right choices Hector. EVen thought these situations usually don't end well… your trying at least. And that makes you a good man, thats the reason I like you so much."
[02:50] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I…suppose." He holds her, practically clinging to her for a moment or two before stepping back. "I'd best be off then. I'll be back later. See you at (arranged time)!" He heads out.
[02:50] Aegnor: (Elly? Scavenge results?)
[02:50] Shadowcaller: (*sigh* poor Murska:()
[02:51] Elly: ( Accidentally had a full inventory, talking to Fawkes about it. )
[02:51] Aegnor: (>.>)
[02:52] Elly: ( Wait… how many items did you guys give me? I've lost track @.@ )
[02:52] Aegnor: (I don't remember)
[02:54] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… see you."
[02:55] Shadowcaller: (We can being a plot if you wish <.<)
[02:55] Shadowcaller: (Just start it lightly.)
[02:58] Shadowcaller: (What is Hector doing anyway?)
[02:58] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Hector…heads back to the Happy Turtle inn.
[02:58] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Big surprise there.
[02:58] Shadowcaller: Indeed:P
[02:59] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: And at some slightly more reasonable time of the day, he'll go a'knocking again.
[03:02] Shadowcaller: (Maelly!)
[03:02] Shadowcaller: (there is someone at the door!)
[03:03] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Guard dog…I mean…demon! Do your duty and protect the gypsy girl!)
[03:06] Wolfbane: Maelstrus answers the door, still looking like Jerome, blade ready. It vanishes when he sees Hector. "Yes?"
[03:06] Elly: ( Same old, same old. )
[03:06] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I walked away yesterday, Mael. I can't. I don't have time. I need to talk to her!"
[03:08] Elly: Wren smiles at Mael, and nods, "I'll talk, Hector. But you're not coming in."
[03:08] Wolfbane: He looks at Hector apologetically and shrugs.
[03:08] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "What…I can't even see you?" Hector looks…pretty upset by that comment.
[03:11] Elly: "Mael, open the door for the poor fellow." She gets up from the table where she was working on breakfast, and comes over closer to the door.
[03:11] Wolfbane: He opens it up for him.
[03:12] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Hector…stands in the doorway, not sure if it's okay for him to enter.
[03:14] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Um…" Yeah, Hector had thought about what he was going to say, but that's all gone straight out the window.
[03:15] Elly: Wren stands just off to the side, "Late night for you two?" She asks, as nonchalantly as she can manage, trying not to whimper or hide.
[03:16] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "No Wren, of course not. I wouldn't dare…"
[03:16] Elly: "Sure…"
[03:16] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "It only happened in the first place because I was drunk!"
[03:17] Elly: "And you've been staying with her because…"
[03:19] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Well…that was unexpected. No point denying it.
"Because…I needed someone. You wouldn't let me near you! I needed someone sleeping next to me at night, but I wasn't going to try and make you let me in."
[03:21] Elly: "Hector… this just proves what I've been trying to tell you…" She sighs, and… well, you guessed it, hides behind Mael, "You love her, anyway… I was just someone who was there for you…"
[03:23] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "That's not true! That's not true at all…" Hector hesitantly takes a step into the room, then stops himself and steps back. He wants to run over there and put his arms around her…convince her that he loves her…but somehow he doesn't think she'd understand.
[03:25] Happy: (drags out the crustacean band to play "Kiss the Girl")
[03:25] Shadowcaller: (^^)
[03:26] Elly: "Then what is true, Hector?" She stares at him, half behind the demon for cover.
[03:27] Wolfbane: Maelstrus rubs his forehead, tired of being used as cover, but doesn't move, knowing she'd only move behind him again.
[03:28] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "…why are you hiding behind him? You've never hid from me before." Her question is ignored for now, "I'm not going to do anything…"
[03:29] Elly: "Hector… I've never had to hide from you. The problem is, I know I'll end up giving in… But you have that other girl…"
[03:29] Aegnor: off to sleep
[03:30] Aegnor: bye
[03:30] * Aegnor has left the conversation.
[03:30] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I don't /have/ her, Wren. I love both of you. It's not as simple as you're making it out to be."
[03:31] Elly: "Okay, you don't have her… you just have a lot more to talk about, lots of memories together, and you went on with her. You could've stopped drinking anytime you wanted. There must've been a lot of chances to change your mind."
[03:33] Happy: *hugs Murska* gnight
[03:33] Happy: awww
[03:33] Elly: ( …epic miss. >.> )
[03:33] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "There were four of us. Her, me, and two other mercs. We were /all/ talking, we were /all/ getting drunk. It was only after the other two left…and by that point neither her or I really knew what we were doing."
[03:35] Elly: "Hector… you just said you loved her… and you've stayed with her the last night or two…" Her eyes water and she looks down at her feet, "You've broken my heart. And you're probably hurting her by coming here…"
[03:37] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I stayed with you for weeks, Wren, we were together every night! And Goldie…Raea and I never shared anything like the time you and I spent with Goldie. She's been encouraging me to come here, Wren. I'd have come anyway, but…she wants to talk to you. All three of us need to sit down together and talk."
[03:42] Wolfbane: *pokes*
[03:42] Elly: ( Sorry. )
[03:42] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (*pokes wolf for rushing elly*)
[03:42] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (*pokes shift button for not working*)
[03:42] Wolfbane: *asplodes*
[03:44] Elly: "We… weren't together like that every night… that didn't even happen at all until recently. She's probably been getitng you to come here because you're being mopey…" She sighs, wiping tears away, "Hector, please. Just be happy with her so that when we have to leave we're all moved on…"
[03:45] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: That's it. He walks into the room. "No…Wren…I don't know-I-I don't think that's what I want! What I want is for all of us to be happy…you and her…and we all need to talk for that to happen."
[03:46] Elly: "All of us to be happy… what, you'd want to have one of us on each arm?" Oh, now she's just plain upset.
[03:49] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: He fall silent for a moment. "No. No, because clearly that wouldn't make either of you happy. But please, Wren, talk to her! I don't want to just pick her over you, that's not right! It's the…whatever decision I make, it won't be right."
[03:50] Elly: "Hector… She loves you, too, I'm sure… You've hurt me, and the person you've hurt me with, is not someone I want to talk to."
[03:52] Happy: (say something, Mael!)
[03:52] Elly: ( *thwaps the demon* )
[03:52] Happy: (surely a lovesick teenager and a murderous demon can solve this together!)
[03:52] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "But…" Hector leans against the wall. "So that's it then? I made a mistake…and it's hurt you too much…"
[03:53] Elly: "If it was really just a drunk night out, I wouldn't feel so hurt… but it's someone you have feelings for."
[03:54] Wolfbane: (I'm trying to think of something for him to say, but he's just never had to deal with this before, he has no idea what to do)
[03:54] Shadowcaller: (He have lived hundreds of years and never seen this? Shame on him!)
[03:54] Shadowcaller: (Oh right… short memory…)
[03:55] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "But at the time it /was/ just a drunk night out! The feelings…the feelings came afterwards…"
[03:55] Elly: "So it wasn't even love for sex." Wren stares at him, giving him the plain impression he's just digging a deeper hole.
[03:57] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Fine…clearly you've made up your mind. I give up. Apparently there's no way to sort this out. I'm going then, for good. You'll never have to see me again."
[03:58] Elly: "Hector…" She sighs, lost for words. Just an unbearably unhappy look, "I hope I do see you… the bunch of us have a journey ahead, yet…"
[03:59] Wolfbane: "She's right. Just because you choose the other girl doesn't mean you should hurt Wren more by leaving her forever. You're still her friend, right?"
[03:59] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "No. No, I can't just stop loving you, Wren. You…I hope you and the others are succesful on your journey. I'm not going with you."
[03:59] Wolfbane: (Hah! Ninja!)
[03:59] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (And it doesn't change his answer at all :P)
[04:01] Shadowcaller: (Party split… want a new character or drop? In case…)
[04:01] Shadowcaller: (Or go on solo?:P)
[04:01] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Go on solo and die horribly? Pssh.)
[04:02] Wolfbane: "You'll still be hunted, you know that. And the girl you're with will be as well."
[04:02] Elly: ( Hector has… two days to get his act together and bring his girlfriend with him on the adventure. =p )
[04:02] Shadowcaller: (Augh… that would be 4 NPC's…)
[04:02] Elly: ( >=3 )
[04:03] Elly: ( … >.> Was Jenny a 'Child' before the whole demon-amulet business? =p )
[04:03] Shadowcaller: (Nope… she have no powers. Just normal human.)
[04:04] Elly: ( Ah. 'kay. I was going to make it 5 NPCs just to bother you. >.> )
[04:04] Shadowcaller: (Bah.)
[04:04] Elly: ( 0=3 )
[04:04] Elly: (A)
[04:05] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "So what if I'm hunted? I don't know, that other demon had that pyramid thing. Maybe I can just give up my powers to them. Either way, I love Wren. I love her and I can't ignore that…or forget it. So, if you won't talk, Wren, then I'm leaving the group, even if it is a bad idea."
[04:06] Elly: "Goodbye, then, Hector… I hope you change your mind…" She gently closes the door if he's leaving, if not, she just stands quietly staring holes in the floor.
[04:07] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "…Not going to happen." He leaves and starts walking away. As soon as the door shuts, he runs.
[04:07] Wolfbane: Maelstrus simply sighs and rubs his forehead.
[04:07] Shadowcaller: (Soo… new character or drop?:P)
[04:07] Shadowcaller: (Or is there a chance he will go along?)
[04:08] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Oh I don't know, they still have a couple of days to come up with a solution, even if it is looking increasingly unlikely.)
[04:08] Happy: (So… Wren wants Hector to come along, but she won't talk to him?)
[04:08] Happy: (that makes no sense at all)
[04:09] Elly: ( She did talk to him… He just refuses to move on with the girl he's gone off with. )
[04:09] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Actually, he just wants the two of them to talk :P)
[04:10] Wolfbane: (Then he should say that instead of saying he simply wants them both. >.>)
[04:10] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (He did say it. She said she wouldn't talk with Raea.)
[04:11] Elly: (Why would she? "Hi, you're the girl he went and cheated on me with, then fell in love with, huh?" )
[04:12] Happy: (it makes more sense than 'Please, bring her along with us, even though I'm not going to talk to either of you')
[04:12] Wolfbane: (Remember, he can still call to Hector telepathically should Wren change her mind)
[04:13] Elly: ( Murr… (
[04:16] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Anyway, because things haven't been screwed up badly enough already, Hector runs back to Raea's room.
[04:16] Elly: ( <.< )
[04:17] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Well, Wren clearly isn't going to comfort him at all :P)
[04:19] *
General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp has left the conversation.
[04:19] *** ku.oc.liamtoh|pmirhslrng#ku.oc.liamtoh|pmirhslrng (General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp) has joined the conversation.
[04:19] Elly: .
[04:19] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: …stupid msn.
[04:19] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Naturally, I must've missed something in those 10 seconds or so.
[04:21] Shadowcaller: Nope
[04:22] Shadowcaller: changing comp…
[04:22] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: amazing.
[04:25] Elly: *pokes Raea*
[04:25] Shadowcaller: changed compp
[04:25] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: *pokes Wren*
[04:25] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Not too late to change her mind, Elly. This /could/ still have a happy ending! :P)
[04:26] Shadowcaller: Well… she will be down in the b0ttom floor of the inn.
[04:27] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Oh, okay, then she sees Hector come in and run upstairs.
[04:27] Shadowcaller: "Hecotor…" She says weakly.
[04:28] Shadowcaller: THen she sigh and goes after him.
[04:28] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: She finds him in the room…in the corner…head buried in his hands.
[04:30] Shadowcaller: First not really sure what to say she slowly approches him.
[04:31] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: He looks up at her and wipes away the tears. "She doesn't want to talk…"
[04:33] Shadowcaller: "…then you have done everything you can." She sits down with him, and gently hugs him from behind, trying to make it very lose.
[04:34] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I know, it's just…for a while I really thought there might be a way to solve this. Somehow, she knew I've been staying with you…although I think I'd already hurt her too much."
[04:38] Shadowcaller: Finally out of things to say Raea just say "…I'm so sorry Hector."
[04:39] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "It's fine…I mean, no…it's not fine. She expected me to actually stay with the group anyway…she still doesn't understand…but I still have you…right?"
[04:40] Shadowcaller: "Of course Hector… I'm here for you." She starts to massage his shoulders slowly.
[04:41] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: He stiffens at the touch, then relaxes and lets out a long, loud sigh. "I hope she tells the rest of them. I can't…I can't face them after this."
[04:43] Shadowcaller: "So… what are you going to do?"
[04:44] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I don't know. Mael pointed out that the demons will still come after me as long as I've got my power so…I don't know. I've got a couple of days. I might talk to some of the Ithari, see if there's a way to get rid of my power."
[04:46] Shadowcaller: "Get rid… but isn't that a part of you? You had it even before we meet…"
[04:47] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yes, I did. But…at one point the demons tried to make us simply hand over our powers with some weird pyramid thing. I can't remember where that ended up, but if anyone knows how it works, it'll be the Ithari."
[04:48] Shadowcaller: "Oh… magic."
[04:49] Shadowcaller: She lets her hands work downwards, over his back.
[04:50] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: Hector mumbles something and shifts slightly, letting his muscles relax. "I guess…I guess I was always meant to have the life of a mercenary."
[04:52] Shadowcaller: "I figured out that long ago… about myself I mean, I can't tell in your case."
[04:54] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Well…there's not much else I can do, is there? Since Wren won't talk…you're stuck with me…which means I'll be following you wherever you're headed…which means it's back to being a mercenary again for me."
[04:55] Shadowcaller: "You don't need to be… we could stay here if you like… buy a house…"
[04:56] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "No…no no, we'd still need jobs, and we're both good mercenaries…"
[04:57] Shadowcaller: "You have to retire before you die, isn't that the golden rule of this job?"
[04:58] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah…but neither of us are all that old…and it'd be a shame to stop. You'd lose those wonderful muscles of yours."
[04:59] Shadowcaller: "We could still train… but I suppose your right, I'm speaking nonsense, dreaming.."
[05:00] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I don't suppose we'd have to stay in the business for too long…but if we quit now then we'll have to find some other job.
[05:02] Shadowcaller: "I know, and mercenary is what we do best."
[05:02] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "You're pretty good at…massaging…as well."
[05:03] Shadowcaller: She chuckles "Belive it or not, I learned a bit when I was down in Erathia."
[05:05] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yeah…" He pushes her arms away, turns round and pulls her into an embrace. "I'm so sorry, Raea…all of this could've been avoided."
[05:07] Shadowcaller: She closes her eyes, embracing him as well, relaxing in his grip around her. "You did what you could Hector… now it's her problem, if she don't want to talk, then she dosen't want to talk…"
[05:10] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: He holds her tightly, resting his head on her shoulder, "You're right, I suppose. We'll just…take it easy for the next couple of days, then head off, okay?"
[05:11] Shadowcaller: "Yeah… the others will like that your back you know? The old sqad united…"
[05:11] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "They're also going to make about a million jokes about the two of us."
[05:13] Shadowcaller: "…Dear creator, your right. Maybe we should consider leaving alone…" You know she isn't serious.
[05:15] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I'm sure we'll manage somehow. I've been deliberately holding myself back, you know? I've wanted to hold you like this…to be close to you…but I wanted the same with her. Now, though…" He kisses her, running a hand through her hair as he does so.
[05:16] Elly: ( *cheers* )
[05:17] Happy: (why didn't Wren even /try/ to fight for him?)
[05:17] Elly: ( Murr… )
[05:17] Elly: ( She probably would have… I just don't know how to act for that sort of thing… :{ )
[05:18] Happy: (but you know how to act like a psychotic were cat?)
[05:18] Happy: (you just make it up as you go along :p )
[05:18] Shadowcaller: "This is going to be so hard to explain…" She manages to say before kissing him back. (I never been in a relationship Elly:P)
[05:18] Elly: ( *shuffles* )
[05:19] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: He holds her there for as long as he can, then picks her up and carries her over to the bed, placing her on his lap. "I suppose…but…this is what you want, right?"
[05:20] Shadowcaller: She smiles "This is exactly what I want Hector."
[05:21] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Good. I'm glad at least you're happy then."
[05:22] Shadowcaller: "…you aren't happy? I mean… no of course you aren't,,,"
[05:23] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "I will be, Raea. I will be. It might take me a few days, but. I don't think there was ever any way to make both of you happy. I had to choose, and Wren forced me into a decision."
[05:26] Shadowcaller: She wiggles a bit in his lap "Well… maybe I should try to make you think about her less then…" (You get the feeling she is done with the supporting talk now >.>)
[05:28] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: (Well, she has been very supportive…and rather patient.) Hector falls silent for a moment or two, then nods and kisses her on the cheek. "Maybe you should. You have been so helpful, after all."
[05:29] Shadowcaller: "Mhm… I been a good girl haven't I?" She wiggles some more and kisses him again (Yeah… patient ran out…)
[05:30] Happy: (yeah, time to prove you aren't just using her as a crutch. even though you totally are)
[05:31] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: "Yes…yes you have. Thankyou…for being so patient."
[05:35] Shadowcaller: "Uhu…" She pushes you lightly, to make you fall over the bed.
[05:36] Happy: (so now what? hector leaves the party and Shrimp gets a new PC? Or Shrimp leaves us :( )
[05:36] Shadowcaller: (Seems so, I hope the first option…)
[05:37] Happy: Shrimp could take one of the npcs off your hands
[05:37] Shadowcaller: Yay!
[05:37] Elly: =p
[05:37] General "Creme Eggs!" Shrimp: And…Hector falls back onto the bed. He stares up at her and smiles. "A very good girl…" He says, reaching out to pull her down.
(Shrimp ain't goin' anywhere. Guess I'm gonna have to get a new PC.)
(Don't think I'd enjoy taking control of one of the NPCs though, I'm afraid.
