It's Not Quite There


Alucard
Run boy run!
The sun will be guiding you
Run boy run!
They're dying to stop you

Alucard woke with a start. Scarlet eyes shot open and his body moved quickly to get up, automatically trying to escape or meet the problem that wailed in his ears. Audition had descended upon him suddenly and swiftly sometime within the night. And it felt like everything was exploding. Already walking briskly, his ears flattened to block out the crashing waves that were -- last he checked -- a mile away. What the hell was this? Had his ears finally made up for his temporary loss of hearing two seasons again ago? Well it's a bit late for that, and extremely overdone. Gritting his teeth with a growl, he speed walked from the area, eager to not have the beach constantly booming in his wildly exaggerated sense. The only place he could think of that was consistently peaceful was Cherry Blossom Grove, so he traveled there.

While it was worlds less of a racket apart from dried dead leaves being crushed under foot, it was boring and repetitive. He contemplated eating whatever fruit that was yet fermented from autumn, but he decided against it. What would the crush of an apple do right up against his head? Or the squelch of literally anything? Wincing at the pain that it would cause, he left eastward. He never explored this far, but he was willing to correct it today. And hopefully, he would find neutral ground between satisfyingly interesting and low on noise.

While crossing over the bridge, he spotted a large fuzzy spider between him and the other side. Though it was hardly a spot on his willingness to cross, he would still stop to examine its unmoving pose. Alucard slowly stepped forward in a crouch to lightly touch the thing, though it spotted what he was trying to do, it didn't make for an immediate run for it. Only cautiously casting it's attention on him as he briefly brushed it's body, activating Chill as he did so. And as expected, the arachnid crawled speedily out of his path. But before it could reach out of sight, he spoke with Daze laced in his words. “The sky is blue.” The fact caused the spider to freeze in it's escape only momentarily with a shuttering halt, before restarting it's run.

With that out of the way, he continued through the new land.

Run boy run!
This race is a prophecy
Run boy run!
Break out from society

Hibiki

dont shy away
when the world is at your feet


Hibiki shifted in her nest, her eyes fluttering open. Her sleep had been restful and welcoming, the nightmares that plagued her dreams did not enter into her mind the previous night or the night before. While she was thankful for it she was also curious as to why they hadn't reared their ugly heads. The child shifted her right paw, gently touching her companion who lay sleeping next to her, tucked safely against the young wolf's side. A smile graced Hibiki's face, Ito was a good friend - one that she could rely on always. Ito was warm and sweet but also firm in her ways.

Feeling her friend waking up, Ito's eyes opened and she untucked her head from her wing and looked towards Hibiki. Her brown eyes blinking warmly up at the young wolf. Good morning, Hibiki, sleep okay then? she asked as she hopped out of the little bed.

Hibiki nodded her head and shifted before standing up. A yawn broke parted her mouth and she twitched an ear sleepily. Lets go out onto the beach, I want to hear the water. the child spoke to her companion and exiting the bed she paused near Ito, her head cocking to one side.

I have a better idea, why not go somewhere we have not been before. It would be good for you to get out and explore.. Widen your horizon ---

I... I don't think I want to do that.. I would trip or fall or do something silly or I might run into someone or something and then.. then... then..

Hibiki! Do you not remember what Alucard said, you must be brave and have courage. You mustn't let your fears guide you. Hold your head up and be proud, you are a charming child and beautiful as well and could easily make friends if you wanted to do so. Now, how about we go somewhere new?

Hibiki hesitated for a moment, her mind racing a million miles per-hour. Ito was right and the little bird reminding her of what Alucard said made her heart thump. Would Alucard be impressed if she decided to venture out of her safety zones? Out of her comfort zone? The child drew in a ragged breath before nodding her consent. Okay then, lets go.. I will go just this once.. Guide me Ito, I trust you. the child responded.

Out of Fuli's house the two went, Ito happily chirping aloud - not only to show her joy but also as a useful tool to guide her dear little friend who relied so heavily on her hearing and scent. Hibiki stumbled a few times.. Her paws not wishing to work properly at first but as she continued forwards, the child was able to have a nice pace going. Green paw would activate for the third time and flowers would begin to sprout behind her as she went.

The pace was slow and hard on Hibiki and so the occasional happy update or description of the land that they were going through brought joy to the young girl's heart. She was young when she lost her sight and therefore didn't remember what it was like to see things. What colors were, what trees looked like... Things like that were a blur but she enjoyed listening to Ito explain things to her. While she didn't understand much nor could she actually see what was being explained the child loved hearing it, loved hearing Ito speak happily about it. Before she would have hated not being able to see but she was accepting it now and no longer hated being blind nor found it unfair. Ito's sounds soon faded into the background as she fell into deep thought, her mind wandering away from the present time. She was young but had a lot of fears and worries and troubles. Since coming here she had been riddled with guilt that she had dragged her mother into a situation that was unwanted. She had caused her mother grief and had hurt her.

Without realizing it the child's steps had taken her away from Ito and further into a land she wasn't familiar with. She would have continued had she not heard a voice. Snapping from her trance the child's head turned about as if she were trying to detect where the sound had come from. Fear began to build. "Ito-Chan?" her voice rose up once she realized she couldn't detect her dear little friend. Tucking her tail she began to move forwards only to have her paw become wedged in a root that was surfaced and fall with a thud to the ground. Ouch.." she mumbled and trying to stand back up she fell once more.

Her paw was stuck.

She sighed quietly and lay still. Well, she was stuck for now until someone came to help her.. She had to trust that someone would be willing to help her. Her paw throbbed but the pain of being found like this was more embarrassing then the pain of her paw.

The humidity was something that the teen was not unfamiliar with, having traveled far down south to respond to a mage's call. However, hadn't discovered who exactly made the announcement. The atmosphere of this location was much cleaner and more relaxing than the mists that blanketed his nose with the dead. Somehow, over there he felt tense. Not in a way that prepared for Fight or Flight mode, but he felt expectant of something. And the male couldn't deduce if it would be hopelessly negative of an outcome or just perpetually interesting and disturbing.

It was some short amount of time into his walk that Audition picked up the sound of a small and familiar voice. His eidetic memory helped him to remember who the voice belonged to specifically, even if his nose wasn't fully grasping the specifics of such a confusing area.

Hibiki? Did something happen to Ito?

Already looking, it didn't take much before he saw a flash of hickory brown on its descent down. Preceding a half-hearted noise of pain. Eh?

With a risen brow laced with confusion and curiosity, he attempted to walk closer with his neck bent to investigate the damage. He watched the attempt to get back up to only result in failure. He lightly snorted in amusement at what he happened upon, getting tangled in roots had to be embarrassing for any woodsy creature. Especially wolves. He hurried closer, even if it didn't sound or look like too bad of a fall, he still had to be cautious that she wasn't hurt.

“Need help with that?” It was a rhetorical question of course, seeing as though the way her paw was stuck, likely wouldn't allow for much of an escape without assistance. Red eyes examined what had trapped her, before he dipped down to catch the roots in his jaws to tear her free from the ground.

He walks. | "He talks." | He thinks.

OOC: Despite what the table suggests, Alucard's antlers have not fully grown to what is depicted. <3
Secondly, all underlined speech is in Japanese.

Detect would activate, alerting the young teen of the arrival of Alucard but it wasn't until she could scent him and hear his voice did she relax. Relief could be seen all over her as she let her tensed body.

Where is Ito..? she thought to herself and just as if her thoughts conjured up the bird, Ito was flapping madly towards where her little friend was trapped. What happened to you? How did you? Why did you? Oh! Gracious, are you okay?" Ito asked, landing next to Hibiki, her head tilting from one side to the other as she tried to look over her friend.

Hibiki shifted on the ground, winced a little as she revealed her left hind paw which was wedged between roots that were above the ground. Her head turned towards Alucard. "Help would be greatly appreciated.." she said in a whisper, her ears flattening against her skull. "I'm not hurt.. just... she faltered, embarrassed she finished her thought silently as she attempted to move her left hind foot. She was a clutz, no denying that. She gave a weak smile at Alucard, "I'm glad it's you and not someone else... That would have been a mess.. She gave a quiet sigh and lay still, waiting for his instructions on what to do.

Alucard only glanced at Ito as she rushed to Hibiki's aide, too focused on freeing her paw to greet her properly. The taste of dirt and grime thickly permeated his tongue, causing a grimace on his face as he worked at the snares. While his ears were flattened to keep cautious of any damage that came to them, including towards his new sensitivity to sound. Even so, he listened as Hibiki spoke, and was relieved that she wasn't injured. He allowed her to keep moving her leg without complaint, as it seemed to be helping disturb the growth enough to come breaking with the help of his own tearing and chewing. As silly as it looked, the roots had her good. But he was confident that it wouldn't take very long to get rid of it, hopefully.

‘I'm glad it's you and not someone else... That would have been a mess..’

He covered up his startled surprise with a cough, and would only take half a second to realize that reaction was mistake. Inhaling some of the dirt and prematurely closing his throat caused the soil to refuge itself there. Immediately letting go, he stumbled back to retch out what had decided to lodge in his throat. The ordeal ended in a second, but he felt embarrassed nonetheless.

Looking at Hibiki's foot again, his attention was divided between her predicament and what she just said. Her words were harmless and endearing, the type of speech he wasn't very accustomed to, never directed at him and especially not only him. With a few blinks to clear his head, he forced himself to further slice his attention on the more important matter. “Try getting out of that now, I broke it up a little. If that doesn't work, try wiggling too.” He said after a swallow to remove whatever might make his voice thicker.

He momentarily thought over the speech until he concluded that it was an overreaction. A misunderstanding by all means, of course. “You're giving me far too much credit, I'm not a professional root wrangler.” He said with faux amusement. “I just so happen to be here,” after a small pause of thought, he decided to go for it. “What would have made a difference?”


He walks. | "He talks." | He thinks.
OOC For simplicity's sake, all of Alucard's speech in this post (and thread) is in Japanese. ^-^

“Try getting out of that now, I broke it up a little. If that doesn't work, try wiggling too.

Hibiki nodded her head to his words and doing as he said she pulled her paw, not budging at first before springing lose and freeing her. A smile broke out on her face as she sat up and wiggled her now free paw "Thank you Alucard.. If not for you I might still be stuck." the girl said, her head cocking to one side.

Her ears twitched forwards and she suddenly realized that she had said something she shouldn't have. Shuffling her front right paw she lowered her head shyly.. "w..well, I.. Of course it would be different.. Someone else might have tried to hurt me instead of helping me.. or would have just left.. she said quickly.

Ito watched, her head tilting from one side to the other as she listened with interest to what her little friend was saying. Hibiki stood, and dipped her head to Alucard. "Thank you, again, for helping me.. she said and dipped her head low before attempting to move closer to touch her muzzle to the male's - as a sign of gratitude. If the touch was allowed hindsight would activate for the first time, showing her a very faded , strong memory of his.

RE: It's Not Quite There


Rosseta-Stone activated the next time Hibiki spoke, causing her words to sound German only to his mind. Even when the spell came into effect unexpectedly, he kept his surprise at bay. His eidetic memory allowed him to remember that the spell made a target's speech sound like the user's native language, and he was slowly starting to become aware that new spells come alive whenever they pleased. Even for how strange it sounded to hear Hibiki of all people ‘speaking’ fluent German, it was relaxing -- soothing almost to listen to his native tongue. The majority of his own speech the past few seasons were English and even partially Japanese, German was seemingly fading into the background with disuse. Even exclamation sayings were seldomly said.

He nodded with a quick “My pleasure.” In response to her verbal gratitude.

All too soon did the power prematurely end with her next words, weak in its first usage. And the familiarity ended with it, or did it? He supposed that English and Japanese were becoming the new norm now, so there wasn't much complaining to be done other than for nostalgia's sake. All those lessons were being put to good use after all.

What she said took him out of his comfort zone. What did she mean by that? It was as though Hibiki was always expecting someone or something to harm her without just cause, simply by nature. It was reasonable, but it was starting to edge onto paranoia more than just safety and caution. She would assume that her realm-mates were neglectful and vicious? In their first encounter, it would make sense why she would have felt that way. But had nothing changed her mind yet? Perhaps he was overthinking it, and pressing the matter would yield nothing.

The male stiffened when she came close, but did not retreat from the touch. There was a peculiar feeling of satisfaction that welled over him. But there was no mischief behind it, no wicked contentment that held an underlying unpleasant weight. He felt appreciated. It was an odd feeling, uncommon before he traveled (escaped) to the land. All he knew prior to his arrival were indignation and resentment. His stepmother's piercing, hateful blue gaze flashed through his mind. Her lithe cream-colored posture poised and lady-like, displaying little of the malice she had for him. Instead, she used passive aggression, sharp belittling speech meant for a low criminal, and manipulation. However, women of her status and temperament rarely interacted with their children, so he considered himself spared from the worst. Still, he promptly pushed the tiny snippet of her appearance away from his thoughts, putting it right back to his 'Things that have no bearing on you anymore' corner.

Blinking out of his temporary daze, he stepped back to allow Hibiki some space before speaking. “Where were you heading? If you like, I could walk with you.” He waited for the offer to be accepted or rejected. Either answers wouldn't bother him in the slightest. Alucard didn't know if she were going somewhere specific and private and he had simply caught her at the wrong (or right) time. But maybe she needed company, and something to ensure she wouldn't get trapped in roots again?

He walks. | "He talks." | He thinks.
