The girl giggled, still reclining on the couch, “I have no problem with it. You’ve worked hard. It’s nice to see that you’re happy with your gifts.And that they didn’t come at too high a price.” Her smile wavered for a moment. George then bolted upright, hopping to her feet and avoiding the ice.
"Right. Dinner. I seriously have no idea what I ordered, so I hope there’s something you enjoy," she tiptoed about the ice, slinking past the Russian, brushing against his leg, "And then we can see what you can do." Her eyes played coy and she flashed that million-watt smile; however, the moment she turned away, her cheeks flushed red. Oh gods. Oh gods. Oh gods.
Georgia eyed the ice, growing from beneath the man, “Um, I’m going to go with no, that is not all.” She then pointed down at Alexei’s feet and made a face.
"Apparently, you’re now your own ice rink." With her snarky comment, she gave a small chuckle and leaned into the couch. Her legs stretched out and her right arm adjusted to prop her head up as she watched the skater interact with his new toys. The girl rolled her head to each side, stretching the muscles in her neck, sighing.
The energy she put off no longer seemed anxious. Instead, she lounged about, making herself at home. George continued to watch her companion, intrigued by his actions, waiting for any further questions. However, when she thought he wasn’t looking, every now and again, her teeth would run along her bottom lip and her thighs tensed, followed by a deep breath to calm herself. Those soft green eyes never left him, so long as he was in the room.
The necromancer stood, looking below. She couldn’t help but tear up as she looked down at the reunion before her. Thank Pharasma that someone gets a happy ending.
With Priwen launched to the ground, Gracelynn took that as a cue to make her way to the camp. Her feet danced along the sand, skating like ice, so smoothly. Reaching the base of the dune, her foot caught, causing a slight stumble. Nothing too terrible. Just enough to break the coolness of her composure. She sighed before joining the pair, “Evelach, Priwen. Glad to see your reception is going well.”
With a huff, Evalach pulled Priwen up off the ground. Using the momentum, Priwen wrapped himself around her, almost tipping her over. Even as Gracelynn approached, they remained in each other’s arms. After a minute or so, they finally broke apart, and Priwen turned to Gracelynn, eyes a tad wet. “Y-yes, yes. It’s been so long. We have so much to talk about. I’m sure we both have tales the other wouldn’t believe!”
Priwen stretched out his hand to her. “Come, come. Join us as we go over our adventures. I’m eager to hear yours as well!”
The necromancer nodded, taking his hand gingerly, “I’d love to hear your stories.” Her fingers were freezing, even with the sun blazing down on them. She allowed the pair to lead the way, her pale pink robes swishing along the sand.
"Only two weeks? Death must be getting better at creating universal portals." DJ commented taking another sip of her drink before continuing to talk. "Also I would assume how everyone seems to end up her and that would be via invisible portal."
Tubby held a small growl at Mary’s comment but it faded quickly as though he hardly cared.
"You’re just lucky you came here now rather then during one of our many apocalypses." Lorkan noted. Sad to say but it had almost become a normal thing for this world to have to deal with some form of ‘apocalypse’.
DJ huffed. “Yeah no kiddin there. But anyway good ta know ya like it here, too bad ya can’t stay…or maybe you can…” she thought before a hiss caught her attention and she faced Tubby. “Alright, alright.” Turning back to the vampire she shrugged. “Scratch that…sorry.”
Mary shrugged and reached for another berry, “Honestly, I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I did stay. But the offer is appreciated, even if I do have a task at hand.” She gave a genuine smile and nipped at the fruit.
"But it’s funny, I feel so much lighter here. It’s… nice."
Tee nodded at his sister, and picked up the book again. Writing fast so they could get as much conversing done as possible.
I was fading fast after they cut out my tongue. I had just enough reason left to pull out my pistol and fire at one of their feet. I missed, but that wasn’t my main goal, or I would’ve aimed for something vital. I guess they saw me curled up and took me for dead, so they didn’t come after me. I used the heated barrel of the gun on my wounded tongue, cauterizing the wound as best I could. It hurt. It hurt worse than anything I’ve ever felt before. I passed out as I saw them take you all away. When I woke up, it was raining, and the whole house was empty. I ran, and I hid, and I cheated my way into money to buy food. And I never stopped.
Tee handed over the book to Ryan so he could read, and sat patiently on the bed, wiping what was left of his tears off his face.
The more Ryan read, the heavier her heart grew. She looked up at her brother, then back down, and then up again.
"If I had known, I’m so, so sorry," her voice cracked and soon she was sobbing again, "I should’ve looked for you. I wish I had given you a thought. I feel like such a fool."
DJ laughed lightly at the vampire’s reaction to the treat and shrugged as she dusted off her hands and picked up her smoothie. “Feel free to have as many as you like I need to go get more anyway.” She noted glancing over at the half-empty case of berries. She took a sip of her drink and faced Mary again. “So how long are ya stuck here for?”
Tubby yawned from his place on the counter and laid his head on his front paws, though his mix-matched eyes were still studying Mary.
"Two weeks," she sighed, "and, to be honest, I don’t even know how we got here." Mary rocked on her hips. She glanced over at the cat, "What are you looking at?" Her eyebrow raised, but remained hardly visible as the indigo hair fell over her face. Her baby-blue eyes glanced up, and she huffed at the tendrils obstructing her view.
As Tubby yawned, Mary laughed and tossed the hair back out of her face, “I am preferring it, though. Mainly the eating aspect. And the… not having a whole bunch of shit going down aspect.” She gave a small smile.
