Detour

With permission granted, she came just close enough to him to crouch and use the bottom of her skirt as a makeshift bowl, sort of. But when she picked up a few berries, careful to grab just the food and not his clothing or body, she found a flaw in her plan: they quickly started to roll and fall through the holes in the fabric, hitting the sidewalk once again.

Frustration slowly began to mount, nearly causing her to miss his question about pie. “H-Huh? Oh, no! This was my lunch, but… I can’t imagine what I’d do with eggs, anyway-” Wait, an idea! Reaching back, she grabbed the broken container the eggs had been in and started to fill it with berries, instead. Broken eggs or not, they would all end up in the garbage anyway, something that turned her lips down into a frown. She hated to waste food…

"I’m sorry… I’m giving too much information. Might I ask why you’re sitting in front of a place known for rowdy teens?"

☾☣☽ ;; He didn’t mind her coming over to gather her produce much. He was content to smoke his cigarette and take the occasional drink of his coffee. He failed to notice her frustration right away, but he happened to look over and noticed the berries falling from her skirt.

"Your lunch?" He inquired almost incredulously as he stubbed his cigarette before turning to look at her. "Eggs…and berries?" His tone was confused; he was trying to match the foods, trying to understand how they complimented one another. Regardless, he shifted the tiniest bit to gather the berries up and hand them off to her.

"Hm? M’just taking a coffee break, ma’am." He responded innocently enough, flashing her a charming smile. "I’m in one division of law enforcement, I guess you could say. I always end up runnin’ ‘em off if I catch them causing too much of a fuss." Which was always, usually.

"Y’got a bag or something to carry these berries in, miss? Carrying them in your skirt won’t get you very far, it seems. I got a bag from the coffee place I went to, if you’re interested." He certainly wouldn’t use it.

The smoke of his cigarette bothered her a little, as it reminded her of a part of her life she’d rather forget. But she wasn’t about to complain - it was in the middle of public land, and he could ruin his lungs if he wanted to - and instead smiled in thanks while holding the container out to him. Still, she didn’t say much more until he mentioned the bag from the coffee place, body having relaxed some to know he was part of law enforcement. He was a good guy, then.

"I can’t save them… They’re.. Going to end up in the garbage." Scrunching up her nose in distaste, she peered into her container at the mix of broken eggshells, yolks, and dirty berries. As if to confirm that there was no saving them, an ant crawled up a blueberry to peer back, making her sigh. So much for lunch. "I don’t like to waste food, but…"

Ah well. Looking back up at him, she smiled, and figured it might be time to explain. If, that was, he hadn’t figured it out already as it was. Thank you so much for your help…  I couldn’t have eaten the eggs anyway - They were going to be donated. I live in a tree; there’s no way to cook on a branch without setting the tree itself on fire.” He had a nice smile, though, she’d give him that.

Out of the complete blue, Naoki slid her arms around the zan from behind, smiling softly at the ability fo do so. "Long time no see, tall man."

Neo blinked, slightly surprised that Naoki managed to wrao er arms around him. He smiled softly at the smaller human girl. “Haha looks like I got a passanger, how are you doing kid?” He said with a warm chuckle

At least she’d tried to get her arms all the way around him, but since he was so big… Squeezing a little, she giggled. “The same I’m always doing: fine, lonely, and missing you whenever you’re not around. How.. How’ve you been? Anything new out there? Or with you?”

Out of the blue, there's a plate of eggplant parmesan placed before the dragon... And a quick kiss pecked to his lips before a particular blonde promptly hid underneath a pillow on the couch.

No doubt he was a bit surprised at both the small kiss and the dish that was placed among his view. With a smile, and taking the dish with him, he sat on the couch, in a small spot that fit him more than perfectly. “Sera~ You always seem to hide.”

"Because I did that," she replied, head shoved under the pillow. "I- I shouldn’t have kissed you…. I-I’m… I’m sorry…" All things considered, they had just been friends. Kisses had always been out of the questions, since he had feelings for another. "Sorry…"

He couldn’t help but laugh; Not at her, but her statement. Out of all things to be embarrassed over. “Sera, I really don’t mind.” He bluntly said, giving a small shrug. “I find it funny that out of all the things we’ve done, this was it.” Well. He did have a point…

He did, and she peeked out from under the pillow. “B…But…” Okay, so maybe after all that time, hiding was a stupid thing. “I-I know you still like someone else… I still shouldn’t have…” But it wasn’t stopping her from sitting up and snuggling into his side with a sigh.

Covered in crimson ;;

scarsoftheshinsengumi:

— Battle had shook him to the very core, scarring him to his very core. His hands shook with fear, an emotion that was usually cast away by Samurai, whom were always willing to give their life for their country, for their way of the sword.
       The boy tried to calm his breathing, to steady his hand; but to no use. The stench of blood fell heavy upon him, his clothes, hands, face… Covered in the crimson his sick new body craved to ingest. He could feel the pressure building up within him as he tried to keep hold in his humanity, it slowly slipping through his slender fingers.

        He’d be driven mad,the last bit of hope he;d had up til now was slowly fading to dust, just as he would soon enough… His eyes slowly filled with tears of regret, stress, pain… He wanted it all to just go away, wake up and have  it all behind him as a night mare.

                                                       But this was reality, his reality.
       

       Nothing made sense to him anymore, and it didn’t have to. His body, his life… He’d cheated death, and this madness was the price he paid for his foolish need to live… The fear he’d held onto so foolishly came back to bite him in the ass, and now his heart still beat within his now iron chest, but his soul was dead.

image

        To the beat of the iron drum, the beat of his aching heart, tears slowly rolled down his blood stained cheeks; soaking up the crimson and ran off his chin.

                                           He was alone…

                                                     He could stop this…

                                                                 This pain…

                                                                       This suffering…

         Heisuke just wanted to sleep… He was so tired… Tired of living his life, the life he should never of had to hold onto… That moment before he’d thrown himself away… He should have died a human; instead of drinking the Devils blood and joining his crusade.

         A sudden crinkle cast itself within’ the forest in which he wept; looking around him carefully, his voice shook as he cried out to whom may of tried to reach him; his desperate cry trying to ween them away.

                                   “Who is it…?!
                                           Who’s making that noise?!

                                                                     Leave me alone…!!

There was nothing but heartbreak within that forest. Both from the boy who shouldn’t be breathing, his very life that of pain… And that of the girl who had witnessed that fight.

She had been stupid. When the call for arms reached even her ears as a commoner, her first thought was to help. Somehow, anyhow, couldn’t she be of some kind of aid to him? They had claimed he was dead, but even she saw him at night occasionally. Fleeting moments that made him no more than a ghost. Then the brief greeting that assured her it was still the captain she adored.

In this instance, she had followed the call. Bedclothes held tight in her hands, as to avoid tearing them on fallen branches and the like, she had gone to provide aid, in any way possible. But the sight she’d found, the bloody battle that followed, had been anything but the norm. Her Heisuke… White haired and vicious…

He had always been powerful, she knew. She’d seen him fight on more than one occasion, loved his grace and strength, his desire to protect. Perhaps, even loved him, the samurai with a heart. But this Heisuke, this man, was different. He radiated an aura of pain and suffering, his tears heartbreaking to the girl who had always been there to make sure he ate.

And when he cried out, she could feel her heart stop. She’d stepped on a branch, unaware she’d even been moving. Subconsciously, she’d taken a step towards him, wanting nothing more than to comfort the supposedly dead man that was her closest friend. And then, it started to beat again, leaping upwards and threatening to choke her as she became even more stupid.

"But I can’t…"

Badum. Badum.

"H-Heisuke-kun…"

Badum. Could he hear it?  The hard thump of a heart that feared for him? The churning of a stomach that never should’ve seen that battle to begin with? If this night was her end… If she had stepped onto the wrong battlefield, with a man that was no longer the one she knew…

At least he’d be the one to take her breath away for the final time.

A certain someone just casually left a tray of food outside Heisuke's door-

scarsoftheshinsengumi:

— “Heeeeeey…! Get back here! Food tastes better when I share it with you!”

Wait, food what-!? Blushing slightly, she tripped over herself and looked back at him, a smile on her lips. “You’re not even going to question how I made it to your door?” Guarded compound.. And he was fussing over sharing food? She wouldn’t say no - couldn’t - and shuffled back over to him.

"I'll only be a minute," the brunette woman mumbled, shuffling along through the crowds of Shibuya, holding hands with a younger silver haired boy. "Two minutes tops. I need this shop over here. That was an hour ago." Pausing to adjust the sleepy child against her hip, she caught a glimpse of a thinned out crowd and shuffled her way towards Udagawa.With two kid and being helplessly lost, big crowds weren't a good thing...Untill she bumped into a boy and stumbled a little. "O-Oh, I'm sorry!"

player-sakuraba-neku:

Neku found himself wandering along through the crowd, following the same path he always seemed to take on his way to visit the mural tucked away in Udagawa. He’d been spending a lot of his time there—a lot more than usual, that much was for sure. But the secluded backstreet was really the only place he felt comfortable being when he had a lot on his mind.

Of course, not everyone else saw it that way. Rounding the corner to make his way up the first flight of stairs, Neku suddenly felt sometime ram his side and glance over his shoulder revealed some lady with her kids. An irritated sigh followed. Couldn’t she watch where she was going any better than that?

image

—Whatever. Just, watch where you’re going next time, all right?

Part of her wanted to snap back at him, but it was a small, distant part. For the most part, she knew she should’ve been looking out for people better, and the boy holding her hand knew better than to just let her do that. If anything, he should’ve warned her, like his father would’ve.

But of course, said boy was laughing and his father was nowhere to be found, leaving her to give Neku an apologetic look. “While it’s not nice to give someone an attitude like that for a simple mistake, I’m sorry. I’ve never been here before, and this seemed to be a place with the least amount of people… Where… Am I, anyway?”

Maybe he could explain… If he was a native of the city, that was. She’d already run into another tourist to told her she was in piggy city. Weird girl…

#playersakurabaneku #LOOK IT'S A WILD REPLY- #With a reference to a sleepy Aoi XD #....Well then I thought this posted a week ago-

I never understood
what made your lips on my neck
such an intimate affair
until your teeth grazed my pulse
and i realized 
you could tear open my throat
and make me bleed out in your arms
but instead
you chose to kiss

Wise Cracks ;; fireballofinsanity

cherishedhxnds:

fireballofinsanity:

No one usually noticed… Save the woman who had been a few feet behind him when he’d grabbed it. Her ever-present smile faded at the sight, and after digging around in her pocket for the last of her money, she at least managed to slip the payment for the apple into the space left behind. The orange would just have to weigh on her conscious for a while.

As the boy made his way through the crowd, she followed after him, though tried to keep a safe distance away so not to be noticed. Would he grab anything else? It wasn’t right, and even bothered her just to see it. If he did, someone had to say something… But he just sat by a stand and made a comment about the people, instead.

The stolen food went completely forgotten about then, and she moved closer to him to frown. “They’re only people with more money than us,” she remarked, voice barely loud enough to be heard over the crowds. “That doesn’t make them any less of a pawn in life than we are. No names will change that, either. And stealing food…  Will only cause problems in the long run.”

image

Like it or not, he needed to eat. And no money meant he had to take what he could get. He took another bite of his apple, nearly jumping out of his skin when he heard a woman’s voice off to the side of him. He craned his neck to look at the woman above him, round brown eyes narrowing just slightly.

“Pawn? What are you on about? Nah, see—these eggheads have enough money to spend on this stuff every day. They spend their money mindlessly. Pisses me off.” He grumbled. A twitch developed just under his nose as she attempted to talk down to him about stealing.

“That’s none of your business, lady. Don’t got money, can’t work ‘cause I can’t read—the hell else m’I supposed t’do?” There was a bitter undertone to his words; clearly he didn’t like the woman sticking her nose into things she didn’t understand.

"Not all people are like that." Her voice had softened in the process, a sign that she, like he, knew the side effects to having money. But, nonetheless, her brown eyes met his, and she offered a sad smile. Had he seen the horrors of it, too?

Curious to find out, she sat beside him, smoothing out the skirt of her dress. No need to flash anyone in the process, right? “Humans are nothing but pawns in the game of life. Some of them fall to the ways of money, others to crime, and then others to poverty, like us. But you can’t assume everyone is a stuck up egghead- there’s plenty of people who would willingly help you. Like me.” And from there she produced a handful of strawberries from her pocket, offering them to the other.
