[Filtered away from recognizable Noah]

[And after morning had dawned the first thought had been... breathing was strangely easy.

Funny how much of a realization that can be after it had been a struggle the previous day.

And after bolting upright in the panic of sleeping, he had been sleeping and he shouldn't have been and what was happening and the previous day, blood, death, the-

Hand had reflexively clutched left eye, but it was whole. Like Chrome had left it, except...

Hand touched to chest, blinking at only the scars that were supposed to be there still there. Gone, clean, no more. Like a nightmare except-

... Except even his nightmares had never been that bad.

And the day had started spinning then and rushing and what happening and why was it finally quiet and... and it wasn't that there weren't other around him that wouldn't have also been surprised, or already known and tried to explain what had happened, or what was happening, but it's a bit much to process. It's...

Staring out at Celestials peering out into the late dawn light and others moving in the street, nervous chatter as they try to act normally, like it wasn't blood and despair mere hours prior. Talk of home... wonder if home is still there?

Or what a home even is; standing in front of this place he hadn't ever called home but had lived there long enough what feels like a lifetime ago.

It's enough to stare and just feel like one's missed it all, screwed it all up, and stand there quietly as the rest of the world wakes and tries to sort itself out. But there's a question to ask, a very important one, and after he's quietly looked at the Hitomi resting in his palm, strangely heavy, for a while, he clicks it on.

But not before filtering it away from some people. He'd know the answer anyway and... it's not something to invite. It's nothing he knows how to handle yet.

The lack of the Earl showing up in his contacts list had been a moment of pause, though. What... had he... had he vanished along with all the other nightmares? But it's pushed aside for the more important question that's spoken quietly, seriously; with weight in its simplicity.]

Is everyone alright?

[It's over, isn't it? Rin is as dazed as Allen is. After that seemingly endless week-or-near-month, too much happened at once, and suddenly, the sun is shining again, and everything is whole again except for the houses.

Well, so much for "this was all a bad dream". They're living dreams here, all of them. They have that in common, if little else.

Now, Allen, Rin thinks she has some things in common with. Certainly experiences, and a bit of a veteran status in Kannagara.

So she thinks he deserves a video response to let him know that yes, she is still in one piece. She gives the screen a tentative smile.]

Yep, I've still got all my limbs attached. I mean, I'm all right as one can be.

How are you?

[When the video from Rin comes up, Allen smiles for a moment before... blinking, a sudden pause. It's not as if he hasn't seen Rin before, but how long has it been since they actually used the video function on the Hitomi on purpose? Most other people seem to, but... suddenly he's having a hard time remembering the last time he and Rin did.

[He smiles back brightly at the screen anyway.]

Rin! That's good. I'm fine, but...

[He pauses, getting a funny expression that tinges a bit guilty before he switches on the private function.]

—why does everyone keep asking that?

[Does he have 'I nearly died' stamped on his forehead? He didn't mean to cause a scene. Really. But what's with everyone asking...]

That's good to know!

[She laughs a little; in retrospect, all the other responses have been asking that, too, right?]

Why shouldn't we? It's been... a rough week. Besides, courtesy, I suppose.

[That, and knowing for sure he's okay is so reassuring. Knowing anyone is okay. Rin still has no idea who came out of that alive, and who... didn't.]

Ah, that's true.

[A little sheepish for a moment before sobering. Of course. It's just... after realizing the condition he had been brought back to his friends in the other day... he feels more than a little bad for causing worry.]

..Some weren't so lucky.

[Although they... were still coming back, weren't they? Even if this place was upside down the last week, even if he doesn't really know how to handle the idea of the dead coming back yet... they did still come back, right?]

[And there it is. What she's been thinking, too. Of course she had, and of course he would bring it up. Because neither of them can ignore it.]

... mh, I figured.
