Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

PostSubject: Grime and Growth [Trinity/Cecil]   Thu Jul 05, 2018 8:59 pm

Please, for the love of god, he seriously needed this to work.
Harrowed and haggard, Cecil staggered lethargically into the bounds of the Garden Path and flopped onto the nearest bench that didn't have someone on it to crash into. Physically, nothing was ailing him but...god, oh god, did he wish his mind would give him a reprieve.
The demons were starting to look favourable compared to another day living with Ankou. The ghost of the graveyard was a sniping, apathetic slave driver, and while he knew it had a point...it just, didn't, stop. There was no restraint in its approach, no reprieve or moderation in it all, and it was suffocating.

Having friends was great, but as time went on, it got much harder to honestly enjoy the time spent with them. Not with that little niggling voice in his head begging for them not to go anywhere. Not to part ways and leave him alone, to place him back in the isolation that would call back that hellish voice that always told him it was never enough no matter what the scenario.

...the voice that wouldn't relent even now, no matter how much he hoped.
Sullenly taking a deep breath of the flowers, Cecil cast his dull eyes over the people at work on their own projects...and waited.

Trinity sat at one of the benches, a specific bench actually, it was the bench she was sitting on when she first met Selenus, here in the garden was where she met him, and she sat there gently nibbling on a cookie reading once more. She missed knowing he was around watching over her, and she came here to remember that feeling, and as she sat there she let her mind drift a bit, it hadn't been so long really, but oddly it felt like nearly a life time.

She continued to sit there in her Kimono her bag set beside her on the bench as she held the book, her eyes wandering to the spot were she had seen him, and they simply stayed locked on that spot, unblinking as she continued to nibble on the edge of the large cookie she had with her. She had to figure out a way...a way to get him back if she could if it was possible...there had to be a way.

She had been going over it again and again in her mind on if it was a possibility, and it was something she wanted to believe in, though she knew it may not be possible at all, this was an argument she continued to have in her mind with her siblings, and it probably would go on happening for a long time as well. but for now she simply sat there, her face expressionless as she gazed at the spot, her eyes unblinking as she sat motionless.

Cecil sat back into the bench, closing his eyes and sighing listlessly.
All he wanted was to relax. That really shouldn't be so much to ask.
Shaking his head, he opens his eyes again to look noncommittally over the area. Nothing really catches his eye though. The place just seemed how it always was...

Wait...

A little focus returns to Cecil's eyes as he looks at one of the other benches. Honestly...just normally, a girl with bright red hair like that would catch the eye, but something seemed off.
...she wasn't actually reading that book, was she?
He follows the gaze of the motionless girl to...nothing. An empty spot in the area, void of anything of note.
She kept staring there, though...
...that was a look that did not belong on a young girl's face.

...

He couldn't leave it like that.

Squeezing his temples and wiping his hand down his face, he pushed off the weary expression on his face for something more neutral and concerned. Pushing off the bench, he paces over to the girl. Maybe he shouldn't be interrupting, but..."...are you alright?"

Trinity sat there gently nibbling on the edge of the cookie as she contemplated things, the conversation in her head still continuing as she stared at the spot where Selenus had once been, she felt...maybe she should plant something there? but what? what would she plant there that she would feel represented Selenus best...This thought ended the conversation previously going on in her head and changed it to a different one, an Oak would be one choice...but she would never live long enough to see it in it's full splendor, it needed to be something that would represent Selenus but would be something she could watch grow, something she could look at and be reminded of him just from seeing it.

As she thought this, she caught the question suddenly asked of her and she turned her head, her eyes still unblinking as she looked at the boy with her mismatched colored eyes, one blue and  one green. His question registering as she gently pulled the edge of the large cookie out of her mouth and she answered without really thinking "We where...thinking of a friend that passed away....this is where We met him..." she said honestly as she looked tot he boy that had walked up to her. Her expression didn't change, still expressionless, and her tone was one with out any real emotion in it.

Red, blue, and green...there was probably half a million jokes there, but this didn't feel like any place for jokes.
Never blinking, no expression, no life in the voice of the girl as she sat about, thinking about a friend that they had lost.
It killed him inside.
Nobody should end up remotely like that, let alone at that age. Chills ran through him just at the question of what had happened to leave her like that.

With a troubled expression, Cecil tentatively sets himself down on the other end of the bench, making sure not to sit too close to the anguished stranger. "...it sucks, huh? Losing someone's never easy." He shrugs, glancing away with a sad smile on his face. "Let alone someone you cared about. They're there...and then they're not. Just an empty space where they were."
Cecil scratches at the back of his head, eyes still adrift and not really focusing. "Guess you know that well enough though, the way you were staring..."
The boy brings his hand around and runs his fingers through his blond locks, breathing slowly as he tries to keep things under wraps. Thinking about this when he was already in a bad way was doing him no favours, and he could feel the pounding force of emotion and fatigue at the walls he'd erected.
Not that THAT mattered right now. He was going to be fucked up anyway, regardless of if he did these. He just had to hold it together long enough to make sure someone else didn't end up just as bad.
He looks back to Trinity, pushing back any ill feeling in his expression and meeting her with a calm visage once more. "Remember meeting them here? Can you still imagine them there if you just try?"

Hearing his first comment she nodded a bit, it was true, but she wanted to place something in that empty space, not to forget him, but to represent him, so that she would never forget him, and the boy mentioned she more then likely knew what he meant and she nodded once more, she did know, there was no reason to say more then that. Though she continued to stare at him with that unblinking gaze, no expression on her face at all as he then he asked her a question about if she could remember meeting Selenus there, well he didn't specifically say Selenus, but he asked if she remembered her friend.

Looking back to the spot where she had spotted him, she continued to stare at it, and she nodded "We remember them....more then We remember Our mother and father....We lost them before They knew them...We remember talking....helping them when they needed it....it was...nice to have a friend for once....they were our first friend..." she said in that toneless voice of hers that was spoken in a whisper that seemed to carry easily. She then looked to the boy who had walked over "We are sorry...we did not introduce ourselves....We are Trinity...." she said as she looked at him expecting him to introduce himself as well. She Sort of wanted to get off the topic for the moment, Selenus had wanted her to try to be more open after all.....

Cecil winced. That was...ouch.
She knew them better than her own parents?
He...wasn't sure what to make of that.

He jolted out of his reverie as the girl introduced herself. "Hey, no need to apologise...hell, I should've introduced myself first." He let out an awkward chuckle as he scratched at the back of his head. "I'm, ah...Cecil. It's ah...nice to meet you." Something twigged, as he looked back to the...girl...
He was starting to be unsure if that was the right term.
"All of you, it seems..." He let out another little laugh, smiling weakly and wearily. "And how long have you three known each other? I mean...I'm assuming you didn't go for 'Trinity' when there's only two of you or something."

Trinity sat there as the boy reacted and then started to talk, introducing himself as she sat there and continued to look at him though he seemed to change his manner of speaking, acting like he was talking to a group, and while it was true, Trinity couldn't let that be confirmed and so her expression staying unchanged as her unblinking gaze continued, she couldn't deny or confirm, any set reaction could hint to the truth, and she didn't need that information getting out to her fans, "We all knew Our friend for a long time, he was Our first friend, Our Siblings all grew up together" she said looking to Cecil.

Honestly she doubted that he would tell anyone, or even know who she was considering the manner in which he was talking to her, if he had been a fan or aware of who she even was he would no doubt be acting differently. As she thought this she took the cookie and popped the edge of it back into her mouth and started to nibble on the edge of it again.

Cecil suddenly found himself a lot more uncertain of the words he'd just said, and the apprehension was clear on his face.
...why had he said that? He was starting to feel stupid now.
Cecil found himself choking up as he thought on what to say next, not the slightest clue of where to go after the reply he'd gotten. And from there, he struggled a while. He felt the need to keep going, not to let this sit, to let the silence hang in the air after he'd already gone out of his way to intrude on this girl's life.
Or...these people's...
Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck -
He'd just made things harder on himself now by having that idea, hadn't he? He wasn't sure what to think now.

He looked away, gripping his head with a pained expression.
One response. All it took to screw him up was one response.
And this is the state of being you cannot afford to be your existence.
You're not helping, Ankou!

Trinity watched as the boy seemingly froze, and she only continued to stare at him with that unblinking stare, gently nibbling on the edge of the cookie in her mouth. he seemed to be thinking, maybe he had run out of small talk? she knew that was something she had an issue with as well, so maybe he had the same issue? Ether way though he seemed to really be thinking at the moment, Though as time passed the boy started to hold his head, and she tilted her head a little to his action, he seemed to be in pain. Was it from the conversation? perhaps changing the topic would be better?

"So...why are you here?" she asked as she popped the edge of the cookie out of her mouth and looked at the boy as he seemed to be pained, she wasn't totally sure as to why but one factor could be the current situation, so she decided to change that by at least changing the topic, if that didn't work she could try to think of other means. But at least this way she could keep trying to make small talk.

Letting go of his head, he looked up. "...I couldn't leave you as you were." He sighs. "You looked just...lifeless. Honestly...still kinda do..." Cecil shrugs, and glances away. "Not that I should probably be butting in like this, but...a young girl, staring off into the distance without motion or expression? What kind of person would just ignore that?"
He swallows. "...just isn't right. Not on anyone, let alone someone young."

Trinity listened to the boys answer and it was quite clear he misunderstood her meaning to the question, so she let him finish and as he looked away and continued she wondered, was her normal look really that distressing? she had to think on that...but as the boy did finally finish she tilted her head to the side a moment before answering.

"Actually...We meant...what brings you to the Garden? Though we thank you for your concern..." she continued to look at him and she popped the edge of the cookie back into her mouth to nibble on it once more after she was done clarifying the question she had asked.

Cecil flinches. "Ohh...uhhhhh..." That was kind of a fumble and a half. He had no idea what she was thinking.
Genius, he was.
"I, ah, um...uh, ah..." Oh for - this really wasn't the time for this. He knew the answer, he had the answer, he should say the answer. "Erm...."
He facedpalmed again, sighing exasperatedly. He really got sick of this shit. "...I meant to try and get my head clear. Relax a little." He gives a dark, hollow laugh. "That worked out well, huh?"

Trinity continued to look at the boy, the giant cookie slowly shrinking as she nibbled along it's edge, and as he fumbled and fidgeted about as he seemed to try to find an answer, she just continued to look at him with that unblinking gaze, he seemed to be having some reason to be here after all, maybe he had a plot to care for? But then why was it so hard for him to answer when he had simply walked up to her and asked her if she was okay? It seemed rather odd that telling her his reason for being here at the garden was harder then walking up and asking her if she was okay, and then talking about how someone couldn't leave someone like her alone...she had to wonder if he had ulterior motives.

Until finally he answered her, apparently he was here to relax and clear his head, though she had to wonder if he had managed it? After all he seemed more worried about her well being, so much so that he walked over to ask if she was okay, so was he really clearing his head? if anything wouldn't clearing ones head require that they do something they enjoy? She herself knew she liked to play music or work on songs when she had free time, and when she wanted to clear her head she tended to go to the same activities...or practice her handicrafts skills which were quite...lacking...to say the least.

so popping the edge of the cookie out of her mouth she started to speak once more, "So...did you manage to clear your head?" she asked tilting her head to the side as she continued to look at him with those unblinking eyes, and her tone remained neutral. the giant cookie once more returning to her mouth as she resumed nibbling on the edge of the cookie.

...did she get sarcasm?
"...not really, no." He sighs. "I'd barely just sat down when I spotted the state you were in."
Not like I would've done better if you weren't here...
He scoffs at the thought. No matter what had happened here, he was never about to get anywhere with this. Didn't matter how long he spent, didn't matter what he did or didn't do...
Nothing worked right now.
Absolutely nothing.

He shrugs. "You needed your peace more than I was liable to get mine. Better that at least one of us came out of this better off, hey?"
