[Week 25 | Day 2] Accidental Video

[Alice's first thought upon waking up beneath that tree again had simply been 'Here again'. Her second thought had been to get to Oz, because that damned sewer rat and Leo had clearly gone insane, thinking to take her Oz, just like that!

Her third thought had been one of muted panic, thanks to the serenity of this place, because Elliot.

Elliot... (Yelliot She remembers now) Elliot was dead.

And the one that trumps all the others that hit in a rapid-fire succession is that she is in Chain form, an overlarge, black as the deepest night rabbit with blood red eyes and razor-sharp teeth. The familiar red cloak and boots adorn her much larger frame, her blood-red scythe clutched loosely in her hand.

She looks around, then snarls softly because there was no reason - no reason at all - that Oz would just unseal her like that without the threat of chains. So whatever the reason, Alice only knows that, no matter what, she has to get to his side. ]

[Which is why she takes to the air, making her way through the skies towards Mizusato, all her anger and frustration and confusion, the lack of connection to her contracted and the new knowledge at war with what she feels to be true in this place there, tinging her vision red, so that by the time arrives at their house and touches down, the Hitomi accidentally triggered to record, she's in an absolute rage]

Oz! Where is Oz! WHAT HAVE THEY DONE WITH OZ?! I'll kill the wretched fools like lambs at the slaughter!

[A flash of the scythe, and she stands there in the center of the courtyard, once again a petite little girl, but the murderous rage is still apparent in every line of her body, the fire in her violet eyes, and the way she holds the scythe back just so, as if ready to strike]


[And then a flash as the scythe cuts through the Hitomi, killing the feed.]

(OOC Note: Alice is baaack~ Anyone is free to say they saw her enroute, or even arriving in Mizusato since she's rather hard to miss in that form. And just to give an idea...This is she:)

[... that is certainly new. Not entirely surprising, considering everything Rin's seen in Kannagara, but unexpected nonetheless.

Alice seems pretty upset. In the bloodthirsty way. Rin's seen it before, felt it before.

Maybe she can do something to defuse the situation. So she responds with a calm, but decisive face.]

Alice! Calm down for a moment, yes?
Jun. 28th, 2011 06:28 pm (UTC)
[Unfortunately, it takes a while before Alice manages to respond - the emotions of her arrival too chaotic and her actions too loud to hear the Hitomi over the screaming in her head.

So when she does respond, it's a fair bit later from her place curled up in Oz's bed, violet eyes dulled as she just stares at the Hitomi.]

I'm sorry, Rin-rings, but I'm calm now. I...it's just... why'd they take Oz?

Jun. 28th, 2011 06:40 pm (UTC)
[Oh. That. Is only marginally less worrying.

In response, Rin sighs wearily, thinking of her own more or less recent losses.]

I don't know why. Just that it happens, and... it seems it's been happening a lot lately.

[Dry laugh.]

Though I guess that's mostly because now, it's people I know.
Jun. 28th, 2011 07:02 pm (UTC)
But I came back, so Oz'll come back soon too... right? Because I did come back.

[It may be childish of her, but she just wanted that reassurance. Not that she wanted to be lied to - but hope was a fragile, delicate thing to a caged bird. Especially when that bird had such resplendent visions of soaring, only to find themselves back in another, different cage all too soon.

Only worse, because this one mocked with the brightness of the sun.]

[Somehow, it is hard telling a disappointing truth to such a young child, even more so if you know the pain they're going through. But Rin figures the truth is still better than pretty lies.]

I... don't think we can say for sure.

[She nods and drops her gaze for a moment, tries not to let those gentle words cut with the cruelty of their truth. She blinks rapidly, unable to stem the slow burn of tears as she reaches for the Hitomi and switches the video to private.

Because Rin was nice to her and listens to her when she talks... and isn't from her world. And Rin likes secrets, so maybe...]

I needed him here, Miss Rin-rings. I--I don't know what to do.

[Her hands reach up to cradle her head, fingertips digging lightly into her scalp.]

There's too much in my heart and in my head and I'm lost without him to make it make sense.

[Rin doesn't know what to say to that. She really doesn't. Doesn't know Alice well enough to feel entitled to just say "yes, you can go on".

But that's all she can say, isn't it?]

... I'm sure you'll be able to go on. You'll find a way. No, you'll have to. It's either that or go down.

[Wow, that came out more harshly than expected she looks contrite.]

... I'm sorry.

Do you have anyone else you can count on?

Oz was... my only friend. But I think...I think Raven's almost like a friend and Yelliot is a friend now-

[Her voice catches on the last, because it's still there, that dull ache at the thought of Leo taking Oz or Elliot dead - a fact made more personal now, because of the bond this place was creating.

So even with that bond, or because of that bond, she just shakes her head and tries again.]

My memories of the recent past are a future none of them have had and... I can't talk to them about it. Not without hurting those precious friends more. I don't know what to do!

[Oh dear. Rin can feel herself doing something maybe foolish and certainly eyeroll-worthy right before she's doing it, this time. Have her sigh, but smile with a hint of wryness.]

... well, if there's anything you wanna get off your chest...

[That has Alice popping right up and glancing around the room, as if to make sure she was still alone.]

Can...can you meet me at the beach? I can't talk about it here!

[... she really is doing this, isn't she?]

Sure. I can be there in fifteen minutes.

Thanks! I'll see you there!

[That had Alice scrambling out of the bed with a quickness as she cut the video. She bound out the window and cut around the side of their small compound, then tore off down the road towards the main road out of Mizusato. She ran the entire way, not slowing down the the slightest until hard-packed earth gave way slowly to sand, her boots sliding in the soft grains.

She skidded to a halt near the shore, but not too close to suffer the danger of getting her feet wet - the ocean always seemed as if it was hungry.

Like a great, mindless beast just waiting to draw you in and consume you.

So instead, she simply crouched down and picked up a little piece of driftwood, began to absently drag it over and over again in the sand as she waited.]
