Week 20, Day 7 [ Video ]

[The video comes on to an up-close view of a deep brown eye staring up at the Hitomi. It tilts to the side a bit, and then the camera pans out enough to make out the rest of the man’s face, including the vertical scar that runs the length of his other eye and the horizontal one over the bridge of his nose, and the slight scruffly stubble at his chin—apparently the man has decided to inspect the device from arm’s length, now.]


[Manji goes out of focus as the Hitomi is turned upside down and then around, reading the kanji inscription on the back.]

Hitomi, ah? Just what the hell does that even mean… [There’s a scowl offscreen, and the feed jostles for a bit longer before Manji decides he has no use for the thing. But he holds onto the thing because maybe Rin might or he could sell it--

-- …come to think of it, where is Rin? The video only shows the grass, but his voice can still be heard.]

Rin? [One, two three…] Oi, Rin!

…where is she. Don’t remember her goin’ off anywhere…

[…hrm. And where is he, for that matter? He’s fairly certain he went to sleep in an inn, not the middle of a forest.]

Eh…think I ain’t in Edo anymore… [Siiiigh. Welp, here’s trying again:] Riiiiin?

…Well, shit.

[There’s shuffling and the sounds of footsteps for a few more minutes before the feed times out.]

Marco! This is Manji, he's my bodyguard from home!


And, uhm, I'm going to meet him now -- could you finish hanging up the laundry for me?

[We gotta think practically. Of course.]

[Oh, come on, Rin, seriously. You just have to say that yes, we are living together in front of said bodyguard? For all Marco knows, he's the type of bodyguard that bash peoples' brains out with a baseball bat like a bouncer one minute and in the next carry Whitney Houston in his arms.]

Sure thing.

[Just expect some of them to be inside out.]

[No, what are you talking about, Manji is UTTERLY TRUSTWORTHY -- she thinks, at least, hasn't seen him in a while, now has she -- but! It'll be okay. Really.

Have another smile.]

Thanks. I might take a while, I hope you don't mind? I'll be back by nighttime, I think.

[Ohohoho, Rin~ You're living with a boy? Your own age? Alone? Surely you don't expect Manji not to tease comment, don't you.]

Well, well, well~

What have we here?

[Her first reaction might look like her usual aghast face outwardly, if maybe not quite as strongly as she would've done a year ago, but it's really a mix of emotions.

There is the "is he insinuating what I think he's insinuating -- oh yeah, he is". She'd almost forgotten he was prone to doing that. But yes, still, she remembered, back when he'd first come here with the many other visitors, he'd teased her about it, too, and she'd been disgruntled because he'd been so missing the point...

But was he anymore? Well, about it being that way, for sure (for sure), but...

Well, what did she feel for this man whom she hadn't counted among her close vicinity for a year?]

[Worried, right? Considering the note on which she'd been taken out of Edo, with him just vanished to only Habaki knew where.

It was kind of frightening how all of that was, seemed, so long ago now. Especially since, all things considered, it should only have been a few months, but still, somehow, a year had passed in Kannagara, it was getting to be spring again, after all -- and it felt like a full year, too.

And he sure seemed all right. Indeed, he talked as if they'd been together when he was pulled here. She really needed to talk to him. Wanted to, truly, but there was also a slight feeling of dread there.

For now, the manner in which she answered was noticeably subdued.]

Yeah, we're living together. What of it?

[Blink. Blinkblink. That...really wasn't the reaction he was expecting. She was usually pretty easy to tease (though he never meant anything malicious by it). It was just a bit amusing to see her fluster, sometimes. (even if she would hit him, afterwards)

To be called out on it...it's strange. Like having a rug suddenly pulled out under him, as he has no response to it, honestly. So he just stares, silently, for some moments.]
Apr. 8th, 2011 09:48 pm (UTC)

Uh. Nothing, I guess.

[Rin is hanging on his every word here, watching his face for what little of his emotions it betrays. So she cataches the blinking, the hesitation. Did she catch him off guard? Back home, she would've laughed it off, glad to trump him for once, all in good fun -- but right now, she's too nervous to feel like laughing.

Then he answers, and -- geez, this situation sure is getting awkward. Time to fill the silence with idle talk.]

He's one of the friends I made here. We just stuck together through all these times. Living together was the consequence of that.

... it's nice, not being alone.

[No idea how he's going to take that, but it's out. It's not supposed to be a jab. More like an offer -- revealing something about her inner life in order to make a connection.]

[It's nice, not being alone.

It shouldn't bother him, right? There was nothing about her words that should be even remotely upsetting, and yet...there it is.

Is it guilt? Disappointment? Something else? He's not sure, but he knows it doesn't feel right. He can't help but feel that he should've been here, that she shouldn't have had to be suddenly tossed into an unfamiliar place by herself that being alone would even be a concern.

(It's funny. He wonders when he began thinking like that. Maybe he did all along.)

He's quiet, again, and this time he looks a little off to the side. If nothing else, he's grateful to this boy, who's helped keep Rin safe in his absence.]

I uh... [He seems a bit awkward himself, unsure of what to say.]

I'm glad you weren't alone.

[Such a subdued manner of him! Certainly, it must be because he's here. Being suddenly pulled from one's own world and arriving in one so strange as Kannagara does that to people. Been there, done that, etc.

Still, it makes her laugh quietly and smile in a manner she hopes is reassuring.]

And I'm glad you're glad. I can really say that I wasn't alone most of time I've been here.
