Re: Saints & Sinners
OoC: Sorry if I get your character wrong librairian.
Is this what he was like…?
He felt alone…I…feel…
A vampire stood beside a small girl, her hand over her eyes, attempting to shield out the white light radiating from the shining ball of fire in the sky. Her other hand lay sprawled across her small pink dress, the picture of innocence captured perfectly.
“Is it okay if we be friends?”
Ahavalin blinked meticulously down at the infant, puzzlement dotted all over his weathered face. All trace of his surprise at the arrival had vanished; that feeling had been replaced by a mixture of confusion and suspicion.
“Yes…we can be…friends.”
The youth beamed, filling Ahavalin with a childish joy. She around on the spot, apparently quite content with the way her dress flopped to and fro with her movements. She grabbed his hand and pulled on it, a signal for him to follow her. The vampire followed obediently, wondering why he was letting himself be pulled around by little more than a child. He let go of his thoughts when a blinding flash of light flared into his vision, causing him to recoil, hissing, into a corner. Kawaii stumbled over to his semi-prone figure and waved her hands in front of his eyes, attempting to make him better.
“Ahavalin! What’s wrong?!”
The vampire pushed himself to his feet, closing his eyes completely. “I…don’t know. The light isn’t natural...”
Kawaii turned to look at the source of the light and noticed where it came from. Her eyes widened, and then she turned back to the nosferatu behind her.
“It’s coming from the door…”
Ahavalin groaned, swaying slightly on the spot. Kawaii grabbed his hand, muttering something to herself. The people around them stared curiously at the unlikely duo, watching as a dark green light flowed from Kawaii to Ahavalin.
“Here…see through my eyes…”
The searing pain was no more. Ahavalin’s eyes fluttered open, though what he took in wasn’t from the same view. His eyesight seemed worse than it was before- his acute senses had been replaced by Kawaii’s human ones. The youngster squeezed his hand tighter, looking up at the man beside her.
“It’s because you’re the chosen of the body, isn’t it Ahavalin?”
The vampire nodded uncertainly and turned to Kawaii, rolling up the sleeve of his jacket with his free hand. “So what do I have to do with this door? Do you know?”
The doll pointed to Valion, note noticing the android angel narrowing his eyes on her pretentiously. “That creepy man might know Ahavalin.”
The nosferatu turned around unexpectedly, causing the group of onlookers to halt from their dull chatter. The vampire swung his cloak out from his body, showing his array of leather pieces that made his suit to the onlooking audience. His eyes darted to each of them in turn; though they stopped on one person.
The knight scowled and folded her arms, looking at Ahavalin with distaste. “Salutations, Ahavalin…I don’t mean to be rude, but don’t you think you should get to opening this door?”
Ahavalin ignored the inquiry, attempting to spark up new conversation with the woman. “How long has it been since the...incident in the forest? It seems like an age.”
Tanith smiled slightly, letting her arms fall to her sides and rest on her hips. “Indeed…Though I suppose the time would not mean much to you? I am unsure of how…your age-“
Ahavalin held a hand to signal silence, and she trailed off reluctantly. “Friends should always be together, don’t you think?”
Kawaii grinned, skipping over to Ahavalin and taking hold of his hand once again. “I think so, ‘Havalin.”
The luminae smiled down at her, not noticing his fondness for her being observed by everyone present. When he looked up, however, he was greeted by an assortment of impatient faces. The vampire cleared his throat before turning around to face the strange, bronze door before him.
“Oh yes…The door…”
With one hand firmly resting on the door and one still being clutched by Kawaii, the Vampire stepped forward and pushed the door. The bronze gate swung open quickly, slamming on the walls of the inside chamber. A metallic clang resonated through the ears of the chosen, causing a few to clasp their hands over their ears and clench their teeth together. After a few short moments the maddening ringing dimmed and the cybernetic angel he had observed before stepped forward, a smirk apparent over his features.
“You figured it out, though I suppose it was simple. Very well then, we’ll move on…”
And with that, the heavenly messenger stepped through the gateway, not waiting for the others to follow. Ahavalin turned to Kawaii and smiled happily. The child did the same to him before looking through the entrance to the new room.
“It’s because you were the body person wasn’t it? And you were with someone else?”
Ahavalin nodded absently, his keen vision returning and the ancient magic that kept them together fading back into the walls of where it came. “I think it was, Kawaii.”
And with that, the unlikely two grasped hands firmly and walked through the stone archway together.
Your fire makes it all worthwhile.
