Kyou 8

[18:00] Murska: So, where are we again. Aegnor's got his arm on her shoulder to comfort her…
[18:00] Murska: 'Just when it seems things are going well again…'
[18:01] Shadowcaller: "…I never seen someone freak out like that, it was like she was possessed…"
[18:01] Shadowcaller: "You don't see any spirits…?"
[18:02] Happy: (ripper updated)
[18:02] Shadowcaller: (Indeed.)
[18:03] Murska: 'Anything hostile would cause the spyglass to shake. And I've seen something like that before. I think it was not an attack… She's just very shaken by what happened to her.'
[18:04] Shadowcaller: "She must really have been affected, I imagine pulling of your own face can have that effect…"
[18:04] Wolfbane: (But Promise does that all the time. :P)
[18:04] Shadowcaller: (I hope Hope will be okay? Darn strange names.)
[18:05] Happy: (Hope is actually a common name in English.)
[18:06] Shadowcaller: (It is? How odd.)
[18:07] Murska: 'Yeah… I imagine it'd be like losing your own identity.'
[18:07] Shadowcaller: "Thats not something we can relate to however, since we can't know how it feels."
[18:09] Shadowcaller: She sigh and looks out the darkened window, at the star-filled sky
[18:09] Wolfbane: (Okay, I'm getting food)
[18:10] Shadowcaller: (I thought you already did that? Oh well.)
[18:10] Shadowcaller: "So many things changes around us… and I'm not the best person to handle changes." She says, without taking her eyes off the sky
[18:12] Murska: 'Changes always happen. You'll adapt… you're strong.'
[18:14] Shadowcaller: She looks at you, her eyes glistening "I don't know if I want to adapt to every change, I want to stop the bad ones from happening."
[18:15] Murska: 'We can't fix everything that's wrong in the world, but we can do our best to fix what we can. And we have.'
[18:16] Shadowcaller: "I guess I look too much into the future… if you look too far, everything in the presense become meaningless."
[18:17] Murska: 'You'll never reach the future, you'll always stay in the present, but there's nothing wrong with trying for a better one.'
[18:20] Shadowcaller: "Are we heroes Aegnor? I always just wanted to find a new home, not fighting evil cultists and spirits."
[18:22] Shadowcaller: "I was very close of just staying in Casters tower to study, it would have been peaceful there."
[18:22] Happy: (doesn't this just call out for a 'Meanwhile, at Caster's Tower' scene, where he's shown being attacked by a dragon or something? :P)
[18:23] Shadowcaller: (…no.)
[18:23] Murska: 'But would you really have? I don't think heroes would see themselves as such, but we've done more than most people who get songs made of them.'
[18:24] Shadowcaller: (It would be peaceful there, end of story <.<)
[18:27] Shadowcaller: "Depends on what songs you are talking about, and yes, if not for you, I would rather have tried to recover all the studies I missed since the university."
[18:28] Wolfbane: (back)
[18:29] Murska: 'Instead you're stuck here, a part in a war of spirits and one of the companions of the one who fixed the mind of a goddess. Oh well, our life doesn't seem like it's getting any less exciting.'
[18:29] Shadowcaller: "All the others must almost have gratuated by now…"
[18:30] Shadowcaller: "Well, its not improving my magic capabilities."
[18:31] Shadowcaller: "But yeah, its another life I guess, if I had stayed, I would most likely be a court wizard by now."
[18:32] Murska: 'Do you think you would like that more?'
[18:32] Shadowcaller: "No, that life would not have you." She smiles
[18:34] Murska: 'Now where's the one who complains about my comments?' Aegnor also smiles.
[18:35] Shadowcaller: "Well, I didn't say you were pefect… but I like your quirks too, in a way."
[18:37] Murska: 'As long as I can make you smile.'
[18:38] Shadowcaller: She giggles, "You always make me smile Aegnor."
[18:39] Wolfbane: (D'awww…)
[18:39] Shadowcaller: (<.<)
[18:40] Murska: Aegnor bows a little. 'It will be my most treasured ability.'
[18:40] Wolfbane: (That will be my last interruption, don't worry)
[18:41] Shadowcaller: *still smiling* "As I said, I like your quirks."
[18:43] Shadowcaller: "What do you think the others are doing?"
[18:43] Shadowcaller: She appears to be a bit restless
[18:44] Murska: 'Hopefully calmed down and sleeping.' (:P)
[18:45] Shadowcaller: (Riiiight…)
[18:45] Shadowcaller: "I hope Hope can get some sleep after that, she needs it."
[18:46] Murska: 'Indeed.'
[18:47] Shadowcaller: "We should get some sleep too… its a day tomorrow too, and we are still in danger…"
[18:49] Murska: Aegnor walks next to her, to the window. 'You really mean it…' He says quietly.
[18:49] Shadowcaller: "What do you mean?"
[18:52] Murska: 'What you said earlier… you won't leave me.'
[18:54] Shadowcaller: "Why would I Aegnor? I would use every ounch of my magic just tobe with you."
[18:55] Shadowcaller: *to be
[18:56] Murska: He looks into her eyes. 'You… would really do that?'
[18:57] Shadowcaller: She blinks, she is getting a bit flushed "Yes, as I know you would use everything in your power to be with me, I trust you Aegnor."
[19:00] Murska: Aegnor hugs her tightly. Then he withdraws a bit, breaking the eye-contact. 'Just had to make sure something so wonderful could really exist.'
[19:06] Wolfbane: (brb )
[19:08] Wolfbane: (back)
[19:08] Shadowcaller: For a moment she don't say anything, then she shakes her head "…And once again you made me speach-less." Then she leans toward him a bit and they kiss. "I have to use other means to communicate with you it seems." She says as they break off a bit, still embraced.
[19:10] Murska: 'How could words convey a mere fraction of what you mean to me?' He kisses her again.
[19:15] Shadowcaller: "Aegnor…" she says playfully but then quickly changes her tone, "…we need to get some sleep, its a day tomorrow."
[19:18] Murska: 'It was a day today and it'll be a day the day after tomorrow aswell.' 'But yeah, I guess you're right… and besides, that statement was just a logical fallacy.'
[19:19] Shadowcaller: "Unless a wizard would stop the sun from rising… but yes, most likely it will be a day timorrow."
[19:20] Murska: 'You know, overall, I think the present is quite a wonderful time to be.'
[19:23] Shadowcaller: "Well, we are together right? Why wouldn't it be?" She smiles and breaks off your embrace, falling down into her bed.
[19:23] Murska: (ouch… first symptoms of a non-migraine-but-still-annoying headache.)
[19:23] Shadowcaller: "So… what bed do you want to sleep in tonight?"
[19:23] Shadowcaller: (I never get headaces…)
[19:25] Murska: 'Well, according to the aforementioned logical fallacy you'll be here tomorrow aswell, but then, as stated, it's a fallacy… This one seems closer to you so I can be sure.' Standing next to her bed.
[19:28] Shadowcaller: "Well, climb down then…"
[19:30] Murska: Aegnor removes the last weaponry he is carrying before slipping into the bed.
[19:32] Shadowcaller: She moves next to you as you slip into bed, "I like these nights with you…"
[19:35] Murska: 'I love being with you like this… Not having to fight or act, just… be.'
[19:38] Shadowcaller: She don't respond, you can only hear the sound of he breathing next to you, you can feel her chest rise fall next to yours.
[19:43] Murska: Aegnor moves just slightly closer before relaxing, breathing slowly and deeply. All of his movements are gentle and careful, as though he would fear startling her away.
[19:45] Shadowcaller: (They fall asleep then?)
[19:46] Murska: (I guess, if Cessie falls asleep now. Aegnor'll stay awake but silent for a while longer before sleeping.)
[19:47] Shadowcaller: (Okay, then wolfy and Happy can do something.)
[19:47] Happy: (or skip to morning?)
[19:47] Murska: (yeah, well. 13 minutes. :P)
[19:48] Shadowcaller: (If you want plot advancement… without Aegnor.)
[19:49] Happy: (no, would rather wait for him for plot stuff)
[19:49] Shadowcaller: (We don't have to go that far I guess…)
[19:49] Happy: (how about the talk with Simone?)
[19:49] Shadowcaller: (in 13 minutes?)
[19:49] Wolfbane: (Where /is/ Simone anyways?)
[19:49] Happy: (in her own room. hope the evil spirits don't eat her)
[19:50] Shadowcaller: (they aren't evil really…)
[19:51] Shadowcaller: (Solo adventure for Simone?)
[19:51] Happy: (Is Aegnor going to talk to her or not? :P)
[19:51] Murska: (Well, it's not really that important.)
[19:51] Shadowcaller: (He could sneak out of bed… but he claimed he only had 9 minutes left.)
[19:52] Shadowcaller: (So what then?)
[19:52] Murska: (Interlude… Right now, in a place a moderate distance away…) :P
[19:53] Shadowcaller: (I had no plans for a interlude, you are supposed to figure out everything on your own.)
[19:55] Shadowcaller: (You may do whatever you like, I could do something for Simone if Happy like.)
[19:56] Happy: (As long as you don't bring in something to attack her -.-)
[19:56] Shadowcaller: (Can't reveal my plans happy.)
[19:56] Happy: (actually, why don't we wind it up for an early night tonight, and start fresh with plot stuff tomorrow?)
[19:57] Shadowcaller: (Sure, *looks at clock* that is early.)
[19:58] Murska: k
[19:59] Wolfbane: (Wow, that is early)
[19:59] Shadowcaller: (Now what will I do until I fall asleep…)
[19:59] Happy: Yeah, but if we start something with Simone now, we might have to finish it tomorrow, and then we put off the plot another day
[20:00] Shadowcaller: (Eh, I can do it fast, depending on what you do.)
[20:05] Happy: (Whatever it is, would have to happen in her room. She's not sneaking out without being told to.)
[20:07] Murska: (A chat with Myobi?)
[20:09] Shadowcaller: (Hm… up to Happy.)
[20:11] Happy: Simone curls up in the corner of her room farthest from the door and window rather than sleeping in either bed. She isn't sure why the others are leaving her alone tonight instead of making her stay with them, but she's glad of it.
[20:13] Happy: Out of a secret pocket in her saree top, she takes out her most precious possession: A lock of long black hair tied with a scrap of silk ribbon. /I miss you, Mamma/
[20:17] Murska: (Night)
[20:17] *** Aegnor has left the conversation.
[20:18] Shadowcaller: There is completly silent in the room, outside its complete night, a street lamp is the only source of light outside
[20:23] Shadowcaller: Suddnely she can feel a pressure in the room
[20:23] Happy: She snatches her knife, and looks around wildly.
[20:24] Shadowcaller: The air is getting heavier
[20:24] Happy: /Myubi? Is that you?/
[20:25] Shadowcaller: Something she can't see cast a shadow against the wall
[20:25] Shadowcaller: /Simone?/
[20:25] Shadowcaller: /Why can't I… come in?/
[20:25] Happy: /Something's in here with me/ (What does the shadow look like?) /Is it you?/
[20:26] Shadowcaller: (Its hard to tell what the shadow looks like.)
[20:27] Shadowcaller: /I manifested today… I thought I knew how to do it./
[20:28] Happy: /I can only see a shadow please tell me it's you I'm scared/ (words all together in a rush)
[20:29] Shadowcaller: /You see a shadow? I must have partly succesful then… sorry for sacring you, I wanted to impress…/
[20:31] Happy: Simone lets out her breath, very relieved. /I was afraid the Yuki-joro had come for me. Aegnor thinks it will take me next./
[20:33] Shadowcaller: /Why is she attacking you? Have you wronged her? Have Aegnor shared her bed?/
[20:36] Happy: /No, Aegnor only shares Miss Cessie's bed./
[20:37] Shadowcaller: /Who is Cessie? Aegnors wife?/
[20:40] Happy: /Wife or lover. I not know which./
[20:42] Shadowcaller: /Then have you wronged her in some way? In all the tales I have heard she only attacked mortals in the icy regions of the north./
[20:44] Happy: /Mr Aegnor say she attack because another speaker tell her to./
[20:44] Happy: /She kill my friend Miss Ai, and she kill others in this city./
[20:46] Shadowcaller: /…I'm sorry, death is a very new concept to me. I would not understand how you feel… are all mortals afraid of it? Death I mean./
[20:49] Happy: /Yes. When someone dies, they are gone, and you never get to see them again. Like my Mamma./
[20:50] Shadowcaller: /…I thought death sounded peaceful, like a long sleep after a long life./
[20:50] Happy: /I don't want to sleep all the time./
[20:52] Shadowcaller: /But I thought mortals wanted to sleep, it appears much easier then your lives./
[20:53] Happy: /Life isn't supposed to be easy./
[20:53] Shadowcaller: /Why not?/
[20:56] Shadowcaller: /If life is hard… how can we enjoy it?/
[20:56] Happy: /I don't know. I just do. Do you want to see?/
[20:56] Shadowcaller: /See what?/
[20:57] Happy: /My memories. Of Miss Ai. And Mamma./
[20:58] Shadowcaller: (Hm, you need to describe the earlier ones then.)
[20:58] Happy: (her memories?)
[20:58] Shadowcaller: (Her earlier ones.)
[20:59] Shadowcaller: (Or can I just read her page on the wiki?)
[21:00] Happy: (Or both)
[21:00] Shadowcaller: (Okay.)
[21:00] Happy: She remembers coming home to find her Mamma lying in a pool of blood, with bruises around her throat.
[21:01] Happy: She remembers her mother holding her in her lap and telling her stories.
[21:03] Happy: Hiding in a cupboard when there were men over.
[21:03] Happy: The first time she stole a few coppers, and her pride in bringing them home to Mamma.
[21:05] Happy: Her mother saying, "You are the best part of my life. I'm so lucky to be your Mamma."
[21:07] Shadowcaller: Muybi's presence fades for a second, she can feel pain and agony, much like her own, coming from it, like a mirror of her own despair
[21:08] Happy: She'd wanted to lay down next to Mamma and die, but something inside stopped her. She had to live. Mamma would want her to live.
[21:10] Shadowcaller: Muybi is gone for a while, the only thing she can feel is that agony
[21:11] Happy: Simone curls up and cries.
[21:11] Happy: Having her own pain echoed back at her - pierces through all her defences.
[21:12] Shadowcaller: /…Hello?/ She can hear a broken voice in her head
[21:12] Happy: /Myubi?/
[21:13] Shadowcaller: /…yes/ It sounds like he is in a lot of pain.
[21:14] Happy: /I'm sorry. It isn't that bad for us most of the time./ *trying to soothe him*
[21:15] Shadowcaller: /How… can.. why./ The voice break off
[21:16] Happy: /But I had her, and we loved each other, so we weren't lonely. And even though she's gone, I like to think of her./
[21:17] Shadowcaller: A few moments later it returns /Sorry… I could not handle it./ He sounds like he have recovered some of his strength
[21:17] Happy: /That's why death hurts us. Because it leaves us alone./
[21:19] Shadowcaller: /My relatives are always with me… I… its hard to understand./
[21:19] Shadowcaller: /How can you live liike that?/
[21:20] Happy: /I don't know, I just do./
[21:20] Shadowcaller: /Sorrow and pain… so much of it…/
[21:21] Shadowcaller: /You will… be hard to understand, my father never told me any of this./
[21:22] Shadowcaller: /Mortals… now I know why they call you that./
[21:24] Happy: /But usually we're happy. Like when I found the flute. Or when Helia put knowledge in my head. Or the time a tradeswoman dropped a sausage on the ground and I grab it before anyone else. That yummiest thing I ever eat!/
[21:24] Shadowcaller: /Is that the things that make you move on?/
[21:26] Happy: /Food? Yes, we need food to live. Not enough food, we get slow and tired. No food at all, we die./
[21:28] Shadowcaller: Muybi's voice still sound deeply in pain /No, the happy things I mean, is it them that make you want to live despite all the pain?/
[21:32] Happy: /Yes/ then /No, it not just that. There something more. Even if I wasn't happy, I would still want to live. I don't know why/
[21:35] Shadowcaller: /We need to talk more… I need to understand you Simone./ His voice sounds darker, more grown up
[21:37] Shadowcaller: /I never felt pain until I met you… you have teached me a lot, yet you have hurt me more then anyone else I have met./
[21:37] Happy: /I'm sorry./ *very very saddened*
[21:38] Shadowcaller: /Don't be, I needed to know that… that is how my kind grow up, by learning./
[21:39] Shadowcaller: /I grew up a lot today, I evolved./
[21:40] Shadowcaller: /All thanks to you Simone, you are my connection to this world, the only way I can learn more about it./
[21:40] Happy: /Can I learn more about your world sometime?/
[21:41] Shadowcaller: /And pain is a important part of it, so I needed to learn it, sooner or later./
[21:41] Shadowcaller: /I can teach you all you want./
[21:43] Shadowcaller: /Ask anything you like… but I might need to go soon, I can already hear my fifth mother calling./
[21:43] Happy: /How many mamma's do you have?/
[21:45] Shadowcaller: /Twelve I am close to./ He sounds Happy /They will be proud of what I have learned today./
[21:46] Happy: /And how many fathers?/
[21:47] Shadowcaller: /Seven I really know./
[21:48] Happy: /I only had one mamma, and I didn't have a father at all./
[21:51] Shadowcaller: /Yes… I knew that from your memories… you must have a hard time understand me, as I have a hard time understanding you./
[21:52] Shadowcaller: /But by learning we can evolve… or thats always what they told me./
[21:54] Shadowcaller: /Its unfair that I have it so well and you so poor… maybe I can make you come to my world?/
[21:55] Happy: /Is that possible?/
[21:56] Shadowcaller: /In Kyou it is, my first father told me that this is the gate between both our worlds, I don't know how it works, but when I do… would you like to come?/
[21:56] Happy: /I would love to!/
[21:59] Shadowcaller: /And I would love to bring you there Simone, you would like it there… it si much different from this place./
[21:59] Shadowcaller: *is
[21:59] Happy: /There is so much I am wanting to learn./
[22:00] Shadowcaller: /In that way we are very alike you and I, we both want to learn, you of my world, me of yours./
[22:00] Happy: (player needs to sleep soon v.v)
[22:01] Wolfbane: (Aww…)
[22:01] Shadowcaller: /I will try to work it out… once I have returned to my fifth mother, she must be worried of mee by now./
[22:02] Shadowcaller: *me
[22:02] Shadowcaller: /I need to leave now Simone… I be back later./
[22:02] Happy: /Goodbye, Myubi. Thank you for coming to talk to me./
[22:03] Shadowcaller: /Good Bye Simone, you have learned me so much…/
[22:03] Shadowcaller: His presence is gone, as is the shadow
[22:04] Shadowcaller: (Just in time…)
[22:04] Happy: Simone curls up again, happy to have such an interesting friend.
[22:06] Shadowcaller: (Go too bed… I'm going to do that too.)
[22:07] Wolfbane: (Have a good night you two)
[22:07] Shadowcaller: (Good Night Wolfy.)
