[video] | Week 3; Day 4

[The light in the room isn't as bright as it should be, considering Rukia has been sleeping here for four days now. But from where the Hitomi is placed, Rukia can't been seen. But her shadow makes it into the feed. She's sitting on the floor, on her knees. Some noises are made that the device is able to pick up. There's a bit of shuffling and sounds of a scroll becoming undone and then silence.

After moments of silence, a sigh is heard. She feels...strangely calm but also worried and troubled. It's then that the memories of her time being dead (which were all fuzzy before), start to make sense and fit into a time line. Everything is so vibrantly remembered that her shadow shows that she's putting a hand to her head. And then suddenly, there's a sharp intake of air at a certain memory.

She remembers killing Iroh.

She killed a man without reason. He wasn't being taken over by a hollow, he wasn't a threat, and no, killing him wasn't a last means of resort. Just something kept telling her over and over and over again to kill. Kill him. Reap the shinigami. Kill every human possible.

She then covers her face with her hands. How did she allow herself to stoop so low? To even listen to a voice and let an unknown darkness take over...

She stands up and moves out of sight of the Hitomi. It's now shown, but now she's sitting in corner of the room, her body drawn into itself. Her body is denying her the emotion of being panicked. But she naturally wants to be. Reading though that scroll allowed her to be calm, even though it was slightly against her will. She isn't okay with killing someone.

Rukia doesn't know where she is. She just knows she's in a room somewhere. She doesn't know if she was revived here or someone brought her to this location. It didn't matter. Rukia wasn't going to move any time soon.

She didn't deserve to be alive right now, but was.]



I'm sorry.

[It was weird at first. To find a living, breathing (if sleeping) Rukia in Himorogi when Rin still remembers her frozen corpse so well. But she's seen people come back to life before, and so she discarded those feelings and took Rukia back to Tsuchisato. What was really strange about the whole thing was the location, she thought. Himorogi. Where Rin had woken up first when she came here -- and other people, too, as it seems. It makes her wonder whether that whole coming-back-to-life thing is really a given of this world. As it is, she can have her suspicions, but she couldn't be sure. And she's not going to ask Rukia -- she still doesn't really know what to do when Rukia wakes up. That is going to be awkward, to say the least.

Right now, she's busying herself around the house, cleaning and storing food and doing other such little tasks, and she often passes the room she deposited the sleeping Rukia in.

This time, when she's nearing its entrance in the hall, she hears noise coming from the inside. Like someone moving around. It causes her to stand still and listen, a little too nervous than she'd like to admit, rooted to the spot. She listens well and hears those quiet words, and then the noise stops.

What on earth happened that those are Rukia's first words after coming back to life? Rin thinks she might know if she'd been more attentive, but she'd been holing herself up as long as the monsters were around, just vegetating around and hoping for it all to pass. Not even because she knew better than to challenge divine powers, but because it had all come so sudden. Taken her off guard.

She's still new to this.

When she keeps listening and no new sounds emerge, Rin draws herself up with an intake of breath, and goes to enter the room.]

[Rukia is still sitting in the corner when Rin comes in. She doesn't move from her spot. The lack of light in the room may make it a bit difficult to tell where Rukia is in the room, but in a way, she would rather it be this way. But she stays silent, not acknowledging the person walking in the room. Hell, she doesn't even know that it's Rin.]

[The darkness makes Rin squint a little in order to make Rukia out, but then she does. She thinks she can feel cold sweat on her temple, but she takes a decisive step in Rukia's direction, looking at her. When she speaks, it's but a whisper.]

Rukia... ?

[It's a voice that's familiar, so that's a good thing. She only looks up slightly before she speaks.]

Rin...

[There's an awkward athmosphere here. Rukia is obviously still very beaten by her recent experiences, and Rin can sympathize, truly, if only by way of a somewhat active imagination -- because she can't say she knows what Rukia is going through, not really. Rin is mortal and has never been dead. Now, if Manji were here, he could say something to that... ah, but his words would probably be very sarcastic, if he'd say anything at all. He's one of those people who don't like speaking about personal things -- well, a man.

Thinking of him feels comforting. Even when he isn't around, thinking of him makes her feel like she doesn't have to brave the terrible things in this world all alone. She'll focus on that part of the matter right now, and thanks to that, she can muster a small smile and approach Rukia further, until she's at that respectful distance a host would maintain to a guest they were receiving.

It takes her a little longer to figure out what to say. How to approach this whole mess with something resembling tact? A little at a loss, she opts for the least offensive thing she can think of.]

How long have you been awake?

[Rukia wasn't sure as to how much time has passed since she was awake from this point now.]

An hour perhaps?

[She never bothered to know the time. Not to mention that her sense of time and placement of days wasn't exactly in tact.]

An hour? Gee, and here I go, not even noticing!

[Rin laughs sheepishly; indeed, she's been busying herself enough to afford not having enough time to look into Rukia's room. Has been stalling on that since they arrived here -- nervous, uncertain, selfish. Now she chastises herself mentally for it. After all, she's the physically and mentally intact one here. She should really take on some responsibiltiy.]

It's... all right.

[Rukia rests her head on her knees, not looking up at Rin.]

Did... you bring me here?

[Rin nods automatically, only afterwards realizing that Rukia can't see it anyway.]

Yeah. We're in Tsuchisato right now. A girl named Amelia found you... in Himorogi.

[And that should be enough information for now. Rin watches Rukia intently to see her reaction to that. She wonders how much Rukia even knows. If she has any idea she was dead. And if not? Then what to tell her?]

I see. [It's a blunt reaction. At least that answers her questions... or rather, Byakuya's]

Ah... well, and since I know you, I thought it would be best first to get you out of there.

[She knows it's not really her place. Rukia has people she knows here, people from her homeworld (and Rin is not jealous, she is not), people that might worry about her. If not her brother, at least that Renji person seemed very focused on Rukia. Really, Rin should tell him that Rukia's alive and well. After making sure of that last part, of course.]

I see. [It's said again in the same tone. Until...]

If I've killed someone innocent... would you look at me the same way you do now?

[So that's what happened. Rin can't help a gasp. She studies Rukia's fuzzy contours in the darkness. Would she, indeed?

No. It doesn't really change anything, Rin finds. Has never done so before -- to her, people are more than the summary of their actions. They can be forced to do unjust things. They can even not be forced and still be, in essence, good people. At least she likes to think that. Partly because she knows whatever it is, it should apply to herself, too.

Before judging Rukia, she should put herself to the test. She knows it's one she wouldn't pass. And so she thinks, whatever. It's none of her concern what Rukia does with her sword. Rin figured from the beginning that she's carrying it for a reason. Everyone that's not a total fool does.

There is one part that bothers her, and that is that Rukia said her victim was innocent. Normally, she could not condone that. But the last few days haven't been normal -- anything but. Rin herself has suffered from hallucinations, and she's sure she's not the only one. They could make someone think someone's innocent who's not. Or the other way around. Either way, Rin supposes there must have been extenuating circumstances. Must have been, since Rukia is clearly tearing herself up over it. And thus the outcome is the same.]

No. No, I wouldn't.

[Again she doesn't look up. Her chest tightens a bit before responding.]

Why?

[Rin sighs. Oh, this is gonna be tough.]

It's not really any of my business. Besides, I can see you're feeling guilty about it.

[It registers in her mind that her words are said in a very matter-of-fact tone, maybe even a tad cold -- registers numbly, like wetness on your fingers when they're already freezing. Well, she can't exactly say she's happy about any of this. Still, she should probably be nicer. In an attempt to convey this, she issues a small, rather pathetic laugh that's suffocated halfway through.]
