WHADDUP STRANGER?


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments I KEEP MEETING STRANGERS! MY MOTHER WARNED ME ABOUT THIS! XP
Anywho...'Sup? So...Knights/squires, right? I've been really wanting to do one like this for a while. - u -


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

WANNA GET IN MY WHITE VAN?
Haha, well I had in mind either a tale of two squires or two knights living their adventures but if you wanted to do a knight/squire, then I'm alright with that as well!


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments YOU DIDN'T EVEN OFFER ME CANDY!
And I didn't now if you wanted to do one where they start off their training into knighthood or not, but I'm also cool with them already being nights. We could always put in those lovely, lovely flashbacks. XP


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

JUST GET IN THE DAMN VAN.
Hm, then they'd be pages if they were training for knighthood and that's, like, 12 years old :P Squires would mean that they're assigned to a knight and they follow them wherever they go, be it in battle and stuff and they're pretty much the knight's servant xD And maybe the two knights could be super close friend so they go everywhere together meaning that the two squires have a lot of time to spend with one another and yeah. :P

OR

we roleplay the knights and, as you've mentioned, we have the cutesy flashbacks and whatnot and maybe they keep being separated and they always come back with new battle scars and stuff and then when they get in their tents in the middle of the night, they meet up and it's all cutesy and they try to always fight by one another and they could be protective of each other 'cause they went through lots together and blah blah blah..

Yeee x.x


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments NEVER! I DON'T TRUST WHITE VANS THAT DON'T OFFER CANDY!

Hm...Both ideas are adorable! XP Hm.......I don't knooooooow! DX I like the second one, but I like the idea of them being squires and having their knights travel together annnd... Ugh. Why you do this to me? You know how I am with making decisions. - _ -


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

I HAVE A NOW RAINBOW COLOURED VAN AND OFFER ALL THE CANDY AND YAOI IN THE WORLD.

Aaahh well then I think we should do the whole knight one and just have awesome flashbacks. :P


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments I'LL JUST TAKE THE RAINBOW VAN AND YAOI, THANK YOU. I DON'T LIKE CANDY.

Haha, alright, that works. XP So...Specific plot in mind? Or should we start with charas and go from there?


message 9: by [deleted user] (last edited Nov 27, 2013 08:21PM) (new)

UM SO YOU'RE ROBBING ME?

Charas are the way to go I do believe :) Unless you had anything in mind? I'm probably going to make my knight 22.


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments YUP. DEAL WITH IT.

Alright. And nope, not that I believe. I was going to make my knight around that age as well. X) Who shall make theirs first?


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

SOBBING.

Don't matter, haha.


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments MWAHAHAHA.

Lol, alright. Um...I could then, I guess. Seeing as you made yours first for two of them?


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

STILL SOBBING.

Haha, sure.


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments STILL MWAHAHAING.

Lol, alright. X)

Name: Ezekial (Zek)
Age: 23, almost 24
Personality: Zek is a puzzle, to say the least. One minute, he can act to the book and rather serious, and the next, he acts like such a jokester that it takes people off-guard. Quiet and reserved, vocal and fun-loving, Zek has his own personality. He isn't one to let things get to him that easily, but he's extremely loyal and protective. And damn good with a sword. *Coughcough* So it would be wise if you didn't have him on your bad side.
Appearance: Short, dark brown hair with a slightly reddish hugh, and deep, chocolate-brown eyes with flecks of gold. He's about 6'2 and fairly muscular, though also incredibly agile. He's covered in scars, receiving fresh ones with every mission, the most prominent ones are ones on his back and chest, looking as if somebody had taken a whip to him.
Other: Just for the hell of it, he has an Irish accent. He doesn't look Irish, but he has the accent. XP


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

DAFUQ IT'S A VERB NOW? MWUAHAHAHAING? SWEET.

Haha, I had Alis done; I was waiting on you >.>

Name: Sir Alis of Barthomew
Age: 22
Appearance: http://i2.listal.com/image/1676581/60...
Brief Personality: Upon meeting Alis, one would first come to notice how serious he seems to be around any sort of authority higher than him and extremely intimidating to those inferior to him; most say it's in his eyes. Nevertheless, Alis is nothing like that once he opens his mouth and begins talking if you're one of his friends. He's extremely charismatic and makes for a damn good interrogator exactly for those reasons; he knows how to get to people through words and manipulation. Sure, it can make him come as vile but he isn't all that bad. He enjoys sitting back and enjoying himself most of the time. Once more, it's usually his stance that makes him seem brooding and unapproachable to those who don't know him. He's highly protective of those he cares for and is extremely selfless when it comes helping those who can not help themselves or a friend in need of desperate aid. All in all, Alias seems like badass and he might always have dirt on his face and scars on his body and have absolutely no fear of death, he's a pretty funny guy with a loud mouth.
Other: Well, if yours has an Irish accent...mine's got a Scottish accent xD



(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments HAHA, IT IS NOW. JUST HOW I MADE DUCKFACE A NEW INSULT.

Haha, sorry. My posting can be a bit sporadic at times. ^ ^' And you know what's even funnier? I was going to give him a Scottish accent, but then I'm like, "Hm...Irish seems to fit him better." XD So cool. How shall ve start this, then?


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

OKAY. SOBBING.

No problemo! Haha, I love me both Irish and Scottish accents! I think I'll even make him have the accent in the dialogue. Yes. So doing it. xD

AAANNND either they're back at the castle (omfg like...Edmund's castle *-* timeception...just kidding - maybe) or at one of the forts located around the lands that serve as defense forts to keep enemies out and stuff. Maybe it's been a few months or a year since they've last seen each other and they just seem to wind up at the same fort ('cause y'know, knights are always being placed everywhere without warning) and it's a huge surprise.

Orrrr we start them on some sort of escort mission or something; I dunno! :D

You got any ideas?


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments MWAHAHA.

Lol. Go for it, girlie. XP

Grr, more decisions. :/ Hm...I like the idea of them being back at the castle, but I also like the idea of them being in a fort...Hm...I kind of like the idea of the fort better, because I can just picture Alias strolling into a tent with a sleeping Zek, and then it could just go from there. XD

Happy Turkey Day, by the way. XP


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

All sounds good to me! So are we starting with Alis in sneaking in the tent or before?


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments Hm...We can start with him sneaking in. ^ ^ Who should start?


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Haha, well I guess I should, eh? Seeing as he's sneaking in and all xD You can't roleplay a sleeping person.


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments Lol, true. Alright. So that means if we do end up doing another one, I could always start that one. Me and my overthinking things. XD


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Alis
"Many thanks, Cleon." I murmur quietly, nodding my head in farewell as he rides away, glad he doesn't notice how sweaty my palms have become. I've arrived merely a few hours ago, in the midst of the night, that is. The other troopers were dead asleep but I know that my night is not yet over.
I have lost track of the time I have spent away from my knight but here he is, in this very tent. I can already imagine him sleeping oh so peacefully in his cot, unaware of my presence just outside.
What am I still doing outside?
With a deep, anxious breath, I push the tent door open and slip inside, engulfed in the darkness. It then occurs to me that perhaps my knight has found another. Such thought sends a pain through my heart, making me question my current actions. No. I...I refuse to believe such thing has occurred.
I begin removing the leather armor from my body as quietly as I can, slipping my boots off but I keep my socks on for the mere reason that nights have the possibility to become rather chilly. I inhale deeply and exhale as quietly as I can and find my way to the cot out of experience about where a cot should ideally be placed. A smile tips on my face at the sound of a soft snore emitting from a familiar breathing.
Without further ado, I carefully make my way onto the cot, climbing on top of my sleeping lover. "Awaken, my knight in sleeping armor." I murmur, my lips finding his skin.
Well, this can go one of either two ways.
I'm hoping for the better initiative.


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Do you even realize how tempted I am to make Zek accidently pop Alis in the mouth? XD)

Ezekial

I am in the middle of dreaming of the one who holds my heart tightly in his hands when a voice whispers in my ear, and I feel a pair of lips suddenly press gently against my exposed skin. I tense up, waking up immediately ready to strike. But when I realize who it is, my eyes fly open, and I stare up at Alis in shock. "Am I...still dreaming?" I whisper quietly, reaching up to cup his face in my hands. It has been so long since I have last seen Alis. My precious knight. How long has it been, exactly? Almost a whole year? I do not know. All I know that it has been too long, spending countless, lonely nights without him in my arms. A small, bright smile spreads across my features as I smooth my thumbs gently across the skin of his cheeks. "If I am, I do not wish to wake up." I murmured, reaching up to capture Alis' lips with my own in a long, overdue kiss.


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

((Should have done it xD))

Alis
At Zek's surprised sleepiness, I can't help but chuckle, imagining his features; his smile, his nose, the scars I have learned to love and everything else who makes Ezekial who he is today. The ghost feeling of his hands grazing my face is nothing compared to the real warmth of them holding me. "Perhaps you are dreaming." I murmur teasingly, clumsily holding myself up as to not give him any difficult troubled breathing.
Finally. Finally, our lips meet and a year's worth of loneliness and infinite dreamed touches simply fades away as I manage to run my fingers through his mahogany hair, my fingers catching a few strands as I grip it gently. No one will ever understand how much I need this man. After quite a long span of time, I dare pull away in order to catch my baited breath. "If I am your dream, I wish you remain resting until the end of time, my knight." I whisper sincerely as I attempt to find the brown of his eyes through the thick darkness.


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Believe me, I was tempted. XP)

Ezekial

A soft chuckle rumbled in my chest at that, and I wrapped my arms around his waist-his warm, solid waist. "And even then, I do not wish to stir." I murmured, brushing my lips against his cheek. I look up him, meeting his intense gaze. "How have you been this past year, Alis, my love?" I asked him quietly, my Irish accent thicker with the remains of sleep still clinging on. I moved a hand up to run through his hair, enjoying the warmth and the closeness and wishing, praying, that this night was a long one.


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

((Maybe the next time ;p))

Alis
"Then do not." I murmur simply with a small grin, resting my hand on his cheek, loving the feel of his skin upon mine. When he asks how I have been, I sigh quietly, not knowing where to begin. His voice sent gentle shivers down my spine. Oh, how I have missed this. Missed him. "My knight, I have many stories to share with you." I chuckle, kissing the base of his jaw once before pressing my forehead against his gently. "But this moment is one I wish to make a story as well." I grin, my lips finding his for a lingering touch. "I have missed you, Zek...So incredibly much."


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Lol. Yup. Definately next time. XD)

Ezekial

The thing about Alis is this: he has such a way with words, good and bad. He can get inside your head and make you crack. Or he can fill you with such a warmth that you wish to cry for an entirely different reason. Smiling, a hand snakes up to rest against the back of his neck, while the other one stays wrapped around his waist. "Then let us make this into a new story." I murmured, just before he kissed me. When he told me how much he had missed me, I just continued to smile at him, holding him close, a pleasant shiver dancing up my spine when he says my name. So long. So long since he has last whispered my name to me, and how I craved more of that soothing voice of his. "I have missed you as well, Alis." I murmured quietly, closing my eyes. "I will always miss you when we part. That is why I want to never part with you again, as long as I live."


message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

((Ugh, that's going to be hilarious xD I can't wait for it already.))

Alis
I grin when his hand warms my chilly neck from having stood outside of the tent a moment too long. "Once upon a time..." I murmur against his lips, teasing our words as I weave my fingers into his hair, pressing my lips to his forehead for a brief moment before looking back down at him. The reassurance that he has missed me as well has made this leap of faith worth the while, all of it.
"Worry not, my knight." I murmur soothingly, brushing my fingers along the frame of his face. "For this is but a dream, remember?" I remind him, leaning down for a brief kiss once more. "Here is where I will be waiting for you once you have rested your head and closed your eyes." My hand trails down his chest until the beat of his heart resonated against my palm. "I am always close." I whisper close to his ear.


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Haha, yup. We're so mean. XD)

Ezekial

I gave a soft chuckle at Alis' words, shivering a little when I felt his hand rest against my chest. "What if I do not wish to close my eyes?" I murmured quietly, though I did close them against his gentle touch. I opened them again a few moments later, staring up at him. "What if I am too afraid that I will indeed wake up from this blessed dream? There have been many sweet dreams such as this, my love. And in the end, I always wake up." But despite these fears that I voice, I cannot help but feel but a slight comfort at his last words whispered to me; to think that Alis truly is always close to me, even when I cannot see him, brings me slight comfort. Though, I do prefer to hold his real body close in my arms, not one that my love-deprived imagination had cooked up to make my heart hurt less.


message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

((MWUAHAHAHAING.))


Alis
"Then you will wake up and come to realize that I am still here even with a conscious mind." I tell him, a little saddened by the truth in his words because I have experienced the same things as he had during this long year. Four seasons spent fighting for the kingdom with the single doubt that my hidden lover might not walk amongst the same lands as I do. Or even worse, him being close but I never knowing. The constant paranoia that our paths might have come close to crossing or him dying had me remain sleepless for days on time until I simply fell from my horse in exhaustion.
"Then you must know I will always find my way back to you, awake or dreaming." I whisper quietly, placing a gentle kiss upon his forehead once more, simply basking in the moment.


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Lol. I made it into a thing! XD)

Ezekial

I let out a soft sigh at Alis' words, feeling a familiar warmth touch my chest with its pleasant kiss. Turning carefully, I adjust so that the both of us are now lying on our sides, facing each other as I held him closely. "It always did amaze me." I murmured, closing my eyes for a few moments. "How you always did manage to find me. Even when we were still but squires, you always found me when I was lost." Indeed, there had been many a day where I had strayed too far from our knights, getting myself lost on various occassions. It had always been Alis who had found me, though I had always received such a tongue lashing when he did. Ah, the memories of youth.


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

((Haha yep!))


Alis
I have failed to notice how the cot is wide enough to accommodate the both of us so I am pleased when I am able to relax my muscles into the cot, wrapping a free arm around him as my other arm remains tucked in between his chest and mine, the brim of my fingers stroking his jaw slowly.
I smile at his words, a low chuckle grumbling in my chest as the memories run fresh into my mind. "You were such a scatter-brain." I murmur, moving closer to him, if such were possible. "You always had me worried the bandits had caught you." I admit, chuckling once more. "Which was why I was so angry with you when I found you and for many days afterward. I always wondered how you managed to get yourself lost so many times..."

((We're going to have to roleplay one of these Zek getting lost scenes and Alis finding him and freaking out in him, xD))


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (XP And abso-freakin'-lutely! We could even flashback now, seeing as they're talking about it? We also, absolutely, MUST roleplay when they realize that they have feelings for each other and they kiss for the first time. +Squeals and then dies.+ Ahem, but dying from cuteness aside...Shall we go ahead and rp the flashback where Zek gets lost, or do you want to wait a little bit on that?)


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

((Haha, somebody's excited :P We have to make their first kiss super perfect *-* And yes, you may go ahead and flashback to that.))


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Haha, just a wee bit. And yes. Yes. We. Do. O u O And alright, sweet. XD)

Ezekial

I gave a soft chuckle, then snorted, rolling my eyes. "Please. You just wanted an excuse to yell at me." I countered in a teasing tone. "If I remember correctly, the first time I had gotten lost, it was as if you were after my blood..."

***

Several Years Ago~

"Damn." I muttered to myself, scratching the back of my head as I gazed up at the clear-blue sky. Where had the others gone? One minute, I was trailing behind Alis and our knightly superiors, and the next, they were just...gone. I grimaced a little as I continued to wander, knowing that once I caught up to the others, I was going to receive a sound lecture from Sir Nicholas. Why did I have to get distracted by that bright blue butterfly that happened to flutter by? Just why?


message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

((Here weeee gooooooo))

Alis
Where is he? How could I have not seen him trail behind? I had been too preoccupied letting Sir William lecture me about the methods of strategic fighting methods to apply on a map when controlling a few hundreds of men. But then I realized that Ezekiel wasn't amongst us anymore and now he's just...gone. "Alis, take the East!" Sir William orders and I'm on my way, forcing Ginger to gallop at full speed; she can take it, we've been through much worse together. "Zek?!" I shout, desperately hoping that he can hear me. What if the bandits got him? I...no. He he's not gone. He wouldn't let it happen to himself, I know it.
"Zek, dammit!" I shout, unsheathing my sword in order to cut away the vines as Ginger went through them; it's to make the trail path a little easier on the way back.
I'm going to kill him when I find him.



(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Lol. \(^ ^)/)

Ezekial

"Where do you even think we are, Eclipse?" I asked the black stallion that was my companion at the moment, and he just snorted, his tail swishing back and forth lazily as he continued to trot forward. That was also another reason that I had gotten lost: Eclipse did not care how fast I wanted him to go, or what direction. He just did whatever he damn well pleased.
I heaved a heavy sigh, glaring down at my horse. "You are of absolutely no help." I grumbled. Eclipse just snorted again. I was about to go on a rant about my useless steed when I heard my name being shouted, and I glanced up in surprise. "Alis?" I called back. Clicking my tongue, I nudged Eclipse forward, and...
He went the other way.
"Damnit, Eclipse! Not that way, you stupid horse! The other way!" Now, I don't know if Eclipse had either gotten tired of my insults, or something had sincerely spooked him. All I knew is that he suddenly reared back with a loud cry, lurching forward at a fast speed, faster than I had ever seen him go. "Whoa! Eclipse, whoa!" I shouted at him, but he just ignored me, moving faster and faster, like a raging storm. It took everything I had in me to not fall off and get trampled to death under furious hooves.



message 39: by [deleted user] (new)

((Look at us with 12 views already xD))

Alis
Ginger lets out a drawn out whine and stops abruptly when rocks have crossed her path. "Oh, come one, they're just rocks!" I snap at her, impatient. The only response I get is an ear flick of annoyance and she soon starts trailing the path of rocks until there is a small hill of dirt and grass she can go down for. That's when I hear Zek, it's got to be him.
"Zek!" I shout once more, hoping to get a response. Ginger seems to know what she's doing because she's already heading to the area she also heard the sound. The sudden sound of a neighing horse makes the hair rise at the back of my neck and I urge my mare into a full gallop.
Damn him. "This is not funny!" I shout, thinking that he is running from me. "I am going to kill you!" I yell out of anger, wishing this damn horse could fly so we could avoid all these unnecessary trees. "Get back here, Zek!" If this is one of his little games, I am thoroughly not impressed, neither will his knight or even Sir William; it is immaturity at its finest. Have I mentioned how I am going kill him when I get my hands on him?



(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Haha, that's 'cause we're just awesome like that. XD)

Ezekial

No, no, no! This is not good. This is definately not good. I am in a genuine panic now, trying desperately to stop my mad horse. Suddenly, I hear angry shouts, and I glance back, spotting Alis, quickly catching up. "Alis!" I called back, still trying to get Eclipse to listen. "Alis, I can't-" The black horse made a sudden sharp turn, cutting me off as I am nearly thrown off. Luckily, as I was falling, I caught ahold of the reins again, keeping me upright enough to grab ahold of Eclipse's neck. But I am now hanging on for dear life, dangling uselessly on the horse's side. "Alis!" I shout, squeezing my eyes shut as Eclipse galloped even faster, and it was getting much harder to hang on. There has never been a time in my life where I had been more terrified than I was now.



message 41: by [deleted user] (new)

((Got that right :P))

Alis
The more I'm catching up to Zek, I realize that it's not his fault Eclipse is running. He looks back at me and I see the fear written on his face. What is going on? My eyes widen when I witness Eclipse take a sharp turn, nearly smacking Zek against the tree. He screams my name and I honestly don't know what overcomes me next. I never thought I'd be able to pull this off but somehow, I did.
I urge Ginger to gallop even faster, probably the fastes she's ever been and soon I'm sprinting beside Zek's horse. I grab the reins with one hand and with my free one, I grip the back of Zek's armor and clothing and with an unknown strength, I manage to pull him up on Ginger. Of course, I'm not that strong to pull someone nearly the same size as me very properly so his stomach is one Ginger's saddle and he just has to keep holding on I guess. Look at Eclipse, I decide to take a leap of faith and reach over. "Hold on to Ginger!" I yell to Zek despite him being so close. I stand a little on the mare and urge her forward just one last time, until I'm a little ahead of the sprinting Eclipse.
It's do or die.
I unhook my feet from the straps and leap off of her and manage to grip the side of Eclipse's saddle. I almost slip but I reach the reins in time and with excruciatingly painful effort, I hull myself up on the horse and out of anger and heat of the moment, I yank on the reins so hard, the horse himself lets out a faint yelp, having no choice but to stop.


((Did I God mode? >.> I'm sorry! I can always fix it if it's too much.))


(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Haha. XP And no, you're fine. I was pretty much going to have Eclipse throw Zek, but this just shows how badass Alis is. XD)

Ezekial

I can feel my grip begin to slip from Eclipse's sweaty neck, and I knew that I was going to fall and be crushed by his massive hooves. But right as my fingers are no longer hanging onto something solid, a scream forming on my lips, I feel a strong hand grab the back of my armor and haul me onto another horse. I look up and see the startlingly determined face of Alis. Gripping his mare's neck tightly, I barely have time to react when he's suddenly jumping onto Eclipse's back. "Alis!" I call out to him in warning, fearful that he was going to fall. But, amazingly, he's actually able to stop
the raging horse. Pulling myself up properly in Ginger's saddle, I take the reins, slowing her to a stop and steering her back to Alis. "Th...thank you..." I tell him breathlessly, not realizing how badly I was shaking until I looked down and saw the reins trembling slightly in my hands. I had had no control over the horse, and if Alis had not been there, I do not know what would have happened.
And that thought in itself was terrifying.


message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

((Gah! I should have asked! I'll ask next time Dx))

Alis
I keep yanking the reins back until I am sure this damn horse isn't going to take off anymore. I do not think such problem will arise because, well, I might have been a little too aggressive. Nevertheless, when Zek guides Ginger back to me and says his thanks, I am not hearing any of it. I slip off of Eclipse and quickly tie him to the nearest tree - just in case. I then storm over to the boy, grab him and yank him off of Ginger as well, though I make sure that the fall is not all that painful by holding back a little before he connects with the floor.
"How dare you separate from us!" I shout, my fingers clenching into fists as I stare down at him. "Are you not aware of the dangers that lurk out here?" I reprimand, my jaw clenching because of the feelings welling up inside of me. "That was a stupid choice, Zek."



(╯`▭´)╯︵ (dǝꓭ ƨ'ɒnɒ⅃) ǝɔnɒꓷ | 3881 comments (Haha, it's all good. ^ ^)

Ezekial

I must admit, I wasn't fully expecting Alis to storm over and yank me off of his mare. I should know him better than that. Letting out a soft grunt as I connect with the soft forest floor, gritting my teeht. Sighing in exasperation, I stand, brushing dirt off of my armor. "I am very aware of the dangers, Alis, and I apologize for troubling you." I said, meeting his gaze with a slight glower. "But I am merely human. I make mistakes. And besides, did you not see for yourself how Eclispe was acting?" I ask, gesturing over to said horse. "I admit that I had been distracted, but it was also the horse that led me astray. If you want to yell at anyone, yell at him."



message 45: by [deleted user] (new)

((:)))

Alis
Once more, I clench my jaw when he gets up and the dying urge to unsheathe my sword and...and I do not really know but I do feel less than content. He tells me to reprimand his horse and I shoot him a glare, wondering if he thought I would literally yell at a horse. The beasts do not understand our language.
Knowing I hold quite an aggressive temper, I inhale deeply a few times until the red in my cheeks begins to dissipate. "You had me worried, Zek." I mumble, raking a distressed hand through my disheveled hair. "What exactly did distract you?" I ask carefully; maybe he had caught sight of the enemy, or something more important. It had to be a good reason, it simply had to. "Perhaps Eclipse requires a little more training?" I suggest suddenly, briefly glancing at the black stallion before meeting Ezekial's brown eyes with my green ones.

Ezekial

I watch as Alis makes a surprisingly decent attempt at calming down, and when he says that he was worried, I feel guilt well up. "Forgive me." I murmured sincerely. "I did not mean to worry you." However, when he asked me why I had gotten distracted, I felt my cheeks heat up dangerously, and I choose to answer the second question first. "Er....Eclipse should already be well-trained, just a tad lazy and very bull-headed. Which is why it surprised me when he took off like he did. As for what had distracted me, um...It...It is nothing of importance, really. Just know that I will never allow for something like this to happen again so easily."

(( XD Um...
"Well, you see, Alis. I was strolling along with the three of yous when I caught sight of quite a remarkable blue butterfly. Coincidentally, Eclipse guided me into the forest and, well...okay...just kill me now." xD
Just kidding, I have no idea. x.x Maybe he doesn't have to? I can make Sir William wander in or Sir Nicholas can or something?))

Alis
"That is not enough." I mutter, folding my arms over my chest, refusing to let a flimsy apology make up for the fact that Zek could have possibly perished without a sound. I am not thinking rationally at this very moment but such notion does not dawn upon me until Zek's blazing cheeks make my hands drop to my side once more.
"It must be something of importance if it meant you straying from us." I point out matter-of-fact. I look back at Eclipse and wonder if the horse would understand if I yelled at it. "You must be careful, Zek." I tell him, taking a small step forward. "Tings much worse than nearly falling off of Eclipse could have occurred. Have you never heard the stories?"

Like, say a witch had been the reason why Zek had almost been trampled-sending the butterfly, making Eclipse go nuts-and other odd things could have happened in the past, like things go missing or Alis could fall through a hidden hole in the ground or something. In the present, they could be assigned to find said witch, because even though they had thought that they had already taken care of her, she's back and angrier than ever? Does that make sense?)

Ezekial

Why must Alis see right through me? Make me squirm in place? But before I could grudgingly explain to him that I had gotten distracted by the littlest thing, he was already moving on with his lecture. Frowning, I let out an aggravated sigh. "Alis, enough already." I said, crossing my arms across my chest almost defiantly. "I understand that I was being idiotic and careless. I understand that things could have happened. I'm not some child anymore. I am telling you that I promise to be more careful, and I do not break my promises. I admit to my mistake-is that not enough?"

((Yesssssssss lurve it! :D))

Alis
When he begins his own speech, I frown and grab the hilt of my sword, ready to draw my blade and hold it against him. But of course, everything he says makes sense, I just do not wish to comply that he is, in fact, correct. Once more, I cross my own arms across my chest, nearly mirroring Zek's position. "Fine." I state plainly. "I just do not think Sir Nicholas will be as forgiving as I." I mutter, taking a few steps toward Ginger and mounting her. I gesture to tied up Eclipse and sigh softly.

Ezekial

There is a moment of triumph when Alis conceeds, and I let out a soft sigh. But at the mention of my knight, I pale a little. "Damn." I mutter with a sigh, rubbing the back of my neck. Already, I am dreading what Sir Nicholas had in store for me.
Glancing over at Eclipse, I frown a little, approaching the black steed almost tentatively. Untying him, I climbed onto his back carefully. Snapping the reins gently, I nudge him forward. And, amazingly, he does as he is told. Blinking in surprise, I wonder what on earth had gotten into him. Shaking my head with a soft sigh, I urge Eclipse to trot forward. "Let us begin to head back, then." I murmured, dread already in my voice at the thought of what was to come...From my little mistake, that is.


(Shall we skip to the present again, where the two are getting their assignment?)
