PostSubject: The crows all bring them shiny things (Ranmaru.)   Thu Jun 27, 2013 9:52 am




Three days had passed since Veyl had last seen Kagami, going off in the opposite direction with that stern expression and eyes looking straight ahead. She made good distance each day before nightfall, and arrived to a village in the early hours of the third morning.

It was a rather large settlement, busy with noise, and Veyl’s ragged appearance drew eyes that made her feel slightly uncomfortable. She wore her usual clothes, full of patches and some rips, her feet dirty from walking barefoot; and she hadn't any coin, having insisted that Kagami take what little Veyl had in appreciation of everything Kagami had done. But her staff drew attention and mothers sent their children to lead the priest down to the river, where Veyl could wash up before looking for work.

She was welcomed more warmly once clean and dressed in the traditional kimono, looking like a proper priest. Most looked on Veyl as if she were a pretty boy (she caught a glimpse of a group, perhaps three or four girls, giggling as they watched her pass), but there were old wives that recognized what few womanly features Veyl had, and they looked on her knowingly, lips pulled into amused smiles.

Veyl was asked to bless a home, a rice-field, and thankfully accepted bread or coin as payment for such small work. One granny even offered her a pair of old slippers, though Veyl put them on only as a polite response to the gift. In truth she disliked how confined her small feet felt in the leathery footwear. She had helped a single father tend to his small daughter's fever and was nursing a cup of tea when she learned of a bigger threat, so the villagers saw it, some way up the hills.

There were several houses there, built for the more fortunate folk, but recently a youkai had made residence in one of them.  The father told Veyl that if he (she made no correction of her gender, as she had not bothered to do so earlier) could get rid of the youkai, he'd have a proper meal and a bed for the night, as the owner of the house would surely be grateful and pay his share in full.

Veyl found the owner of the said house in a tavern. He was an unpleasant man and he smelled strongly of ale and piss, but Veyl arranged her service for that hot meal and was even promised a decent amount of coin. The man kept calling her boy and hitting his fist against the table; and Veyl thought that once her work was done, she would be glad to be rid of him.

She set off uphill late in the afternoon, when the sun’s glare had softened and did not burn as harshly against her skin. Though she had received instructions that led way to the correct house, she became aware of the youkai’s presence enough to be able to find it on her own. It stood sharply at the east end; and as all houses up there, its appearance spoke of wealth.

The lock on the front doors was broken, but if someone had been foolish enough to break in, it did not appear they had gone far in. The entire hall, in fact, looked perfectly untouched. Still, Veyl proceeded with caution.

DEEP RED OVER EVERYTHING
As much as he loved falling asleep on the tall grass of a wide and quiet field, it sometimes proved to be rather troublesome. This was one of those times as well. It was unspeakable; the way he had been robbed of one of his most precious possessions. How could a disgraceful yokai dare lay his hands on a humble dragon's possession? The dragon was furious for once in his life.

The little stolen mirror was not golden, nor adorned with jewels. It was a mere mirror of a little human girl. It was a gift of gratitude and friendship. A very treasured gift at that. It was one of the few things he had gained from his precious humans. Such fragile things. He had turned to visit most of them after some time, but all were found in graves, resting for eternity. Their magic lasted for so little time it was depressing.

He had been chasing after this thief for some days now, but the offender always found a way to escape the dragon's grip. But finally this fateful afternoon, he had cornered him up. He found himself smiling mischievously, something he rarely did, as he stepped inside the wealthy house in which the yokai had taken cover, after reluctantly breaking the front door's lock.

Ranmaru didn't even bother taking out his sword. He would just transform into the red dragon he was, and break the yokai's neck before taking back his mirror. Besides, it had been long since he had last felt the sensation of flying. He admitted to himself that he yearned for it. If it wasn't for that, he would have sought out a way to become human a long time ago.

His composed steps brought him to the upper floor quickly enough for him to catch a glimpse of the one he was looking for turning into one of the halls in an attempt to escape. His lips parted and formed into a satisfied grin as he growled before shifting into a long snake like form with four flexible feet. The red dragon's tail accidentally pushed down a patterned vase from a wooden stand, altering whoever else was in the quiet 'till that moment building. He shifted a bit to face the result of his action. Who knew how precious that vase was. It didn't matter as much as the yokai up ahead though.

Instead of levitating, he kept to the ground for now, and crawled through the halls with the help of his feet in search of the offender.

There was nothing of much interest in the ground floor rooms; Veyl had checked them all, just to be sure, but she could feel a presence upstairs even as she looked. She had just started up the stairs when she heard it; a low, throaty growl that made her pause in her step. She took a moment to listen for other sounds, and instinctively jerked to the wall at a noise that indicated something had broken. When no attack came Veyl moved again, inwardly cursing the kimono that caught as she climbed. Might have changed before coming here, only she'd forgotten.

The upper floor was more so another long hallway with doors to both sides. At the end of the hall, Veyl caught just a glimpse of a tail, red and scaly, as it disappeared round a corner. She frowned as she hurried after it; her steps light, but the leather slippers making a soft noise against the wooden floor.

The youkai was in form of a snake with feet, and Veyl silently thanked the gods that it was not something scarier; she’d seen demons so deformed that she could not even tell apart the species composed into one body. Such visited her often in repeating nightmares.

Veyl took a firmer grip on her staff, holding it in position as she made to draw attention from the youkai. With her free hand she tugged at the rosary around her neck, but did not yet remove it for use. The low voice was smoothed by the tea she had earlier, practised by a day of prayers and necessary small-talk; and if Veyl had not used it as for the three days prior, she might have worried that it would not sound at all.

”You are not welcome here, demon.”

Even as she spoke, she became aware that the presence stretched a little further ahead. Her lips pulled into a tight line as she tried to decipher why it was so off. Was the demon trying to hide it? Perhaps it was stronger than it looked? Veyl noted not to underestimate it, tapping her staff against the floor as her lips prepared a spell to bind it.

DEEP RED OVER EVERYTHING
His chase was cut off quickly, when he heard a voice coming from somewhere behind him. It definitely wasn't the yokai he was after, so he just assumed it was a human. The house was close to human civilization as he had noticed before he entered it, but he wouldn't have thought anyone would approach the residence of a demon.

Not only that. The voice didn't seem to be as afraid as it would normally be. He stopped his swift movement and in a quick and elegant manner, transformed back to his human appearance, turning around slowly to face the new arrival. This was only going to slow him down, but he couldn't just let a human wander around with the thief still roaming free. The individual didn't seem too old, perhaps a boy of eighteen or nineteen years of age. The staff he held was familiar to Ranmaru. In his earlier years, he had encountered countless priests who held similar weapons.

The thought clicked to him quickly as he widened his eyes slightly and took a small step back. Was he trying to exorcise him or something? He raised his hands quickly in a defensive manner in front of him, letting an awkward laugh escape his mouth before settling into a warm smile which didn't really fit the situation.

"You've got it wrong, young man. I do not pose a threat to anyone."

He was sure to keep a reassuring tone in his voice as he spoke to the one in front of him. They tended to be altered easily, and as it seemed, the human was ready to perform a spell on him any minute now. Humans were indeed lovely, but he wouldn't die for one of their misjudgements.

Promptly lifting her staff a little higher as the demon before her changed, Veyl’s eyes narrowed at the man that stood before her in its place. As he turned to face her, she was met with a pair of bright red orbs, the intensity with which they shone making her drop her staff slightly. There was something in those eyes that she could not quite read, but they spoke of years upon years and of life that she would surely be unable to grasp within the borders of her human understanding. They were not the eyes of a demon, but of something far greater.

He stood nearly a head taller than her, but size was not something that easily made Veyl feel intimidated. Then the red eyes widened and he laughed, laughed, of all things. She was further taken aback by the smile that settled on his lips; it was unlike the sardonic, cruel smiles that usually graced mouths of demons. Nor was there any hostility in his stance. Not directed towards me. So it seemed. But demons were deceitful creatures; and Veyl took in a careful breath, lifting up her staff again.

“Why are you here?”

The question slipped off her lips before she could hold it; Veyl had meant to deny the demon’s words, state that she would not be lured in by its charm. She had meant to resume her prayer and drive this being away to the offworld it came from, then collect her reward and be on her way. She certainly hadn’t meant to ask a question, and one of such irrelevance. What did she care for a demon’s reasoning?

But something was still off. The presence lingered in the air around her, yet it did not seem that it was his. His was something quite different, and not the like of those she learned to recognize through her training as a priest.

Once more she dared take a look at his eyes. They bothered her and intrigued her, and she found it very hard to look away this time. Despite his warm, inviting expression, there was danger in those eyes; and for a moment, her heart beating fiercely against her chest and filling in the silence that followed, Veyl was at a complete loss. She could not deny that if he wanted to attack her, he would have already done so. Yet there could have been plenty of reasons behind that: firstly the attempt to charm her instead, as some types rather did, or a part of an entirely different tactic that would help him overpower her. Perhaps the demon was too weak to take her on recklessly? It seems unthinkable. Lesser demons can rarely change forms so easily- and so flawlessly. No, he would had to have possessed a human body prior to his change, maybe-

She was thinking too much on it, Veyl had no doubt. Slowly, as if testing his movement, she lowered her staff to a safe position. The hand that held the beads had long since fallen back to her side.

“What are you?”

DEEP RED OVER EVERYTHING
The question that came after was partly awaited. The priest was wise not to jump into a conclusion on his own. He lowered his tense shoulders a bit, and kept his calm features in tact, before speaking again. He didn't want to alter an unnecessary actions on the boy's part. He just needed to clear this up quickly and get going, for the demon he was chasing after would disappear again, and he would have to spend more time on tracking it down.

"I am here to claim back what is rightfully mine from a foul demon who has taken residence in this house. Please, do not concern yourself over me. As I said, I do not pose a threat to anyone other than the thief of my possession."

He had not yet studied the boy's appearance and took the chance to do so in the small amount of silence that fell upon them after his answer. The dark red hair on the back of his head drew the dragon's interest first. It was the first time he had laid eyes on a human child with such an unusual hair color. It fascinated him as much as the fact that the boy in front of him was generally more beautiful than any young man he had met before.

In those few moments, he caught the boy looking intensely into the dragon's eyes. Ranmaru didn't dare feel uncomfortable or express any kind of complain over it. It had occurred numerous times in the past, some leading to an actual fight, others to an intimidated escape and some to a better understanding between individuals. He admitted to himself that he was kind of curious to see what this look would lead to this time.

The result was much appreciated. As he did before, the boy did not jump into conclusions before he had his answers. The dragon's smile widened and he relaxed his stature slightly more as the priest lowered his staff and erased the possibility of attacking for now.

"I am not something that will harm you. I am not a demon of the kind you are hunting for. I am but a faithful dragon who will not dare lay a hand on a innocent human being."

Choosing his words carefully, he spoke slowly and steadily so as to make his point clear. He was indeed not a threat and he was sure to emphasize it even in his third time mentioning it.

It kept surprising her, how calm his features still remained. Perhaps he had some notion of understanding that she would not truly harm him, so long as he did not appear hostile. Her own actions must have shown that there may be no need for alarm, but she thought that perhaps she too required at least reserved caution. His appearance made her want to relax as well, yet her reason opposed that thought strongly. And his words sparked concern. Did he mean to deal with the demon violently, once he found him? From the beginning, Veyl had not meant to slay the demon; not until at least trying to purify it first.

She further doubted his words, but could not ignore his stature, for it spoke more truth than Veyl dared admit. One thing that she did trust was that he was no ordinary demon, but the fact he called himself a dragon worried her. And faithful? She would have laughed, were she not so terrified. A dragon’s primary element would be fire; and though she saw no reason why a dragon would find itself in this place, even if it was not, Veyl doubted that a dragon of air or water would have eyes of such red.

Would he truly not harm her? What reason did she have to believe that? If she was honest, he’d given her plenty of reason, yet she wondered stubbornly. Perhaps she really did have trust issues. At the though, Veyl cracked a poor smile.

“Fine. Let’s talk while we move.”

The suggestion had barely left her lips, and already she was moving past the other on her way further into the hall. The demon’s presence grew stronger as it gathered into one area, unmoving. It had come to a dead end.

“It’s right ahead, immobile. It could be trying to remain hidden.”

Or it might be preparing an attack.

“What do you plan to do? I have been asked to drive this demon away. If you kill it, I won't get paid.”

DEEP RED OVER EVERYTHING
The red pair of eyes didn't get tired of staring into the brown ones. He awaited for his final judgement patiently. He was sure the situation seemed extremely tricky from the human's point of view. Demons were not rumored for keeping their word or for being truthful; and Ranmaru was practically a demon. A demon born out of hatred at that. But the last piece of information needn't be known by the priest for it would bring disaster upon the calmly handled subject.

Born through hatred as his memories told him, but still despised the thought of hatred. Instead of a fearless beast, he had come to be a harmless and joyful individual, whose only weakness was one of the weakest creatures in the world. And one of those weak being was standing right in front of him, trying to make out his intentions. Deep down he actually wished he hadn't been seen in his true form by this young man. Yes, even though he knew almost nothing about him, he still would have preferred to introduce himself as a human being rather than a dragon. What was done, was over though, and now the small smile on the boy's face was just reassuring that he did not consider him a major threat.

His face expression lightened at the young priest's reaction and he didn't hesitate to nod, accepting the friendly offer and following behind him with steps equal to his. The second statement was not exactly necessary, seeing as the dragon was already aware of the demon's presence.

"If my planned actions will cost you your salary, then I have no reason to do what I was planning to do."

Truth be told, he didn't care either way. The certain demon was not one he would think over for. It was an ignorant thief who had sneaked on him in his peaceful sleep, and stolen something of no actual value. If killing it meant it would learn its lesson, then so he would do. But since the boy's meal was depending on it, he decided not to interfere.

"How about I let you do your job, and when you're done, I will take back what belongs to me? If you need my assistance, I will gladly help you."

Threading lightly to the end of the hall, Veyl kept her gaze on doors to their left. If she was correct, the demon had to be behind the last door. She paused before feeling the handle beneath her fingers; spoke without looking at the dragon.

“I do not believe the owner of this house cares whether the demon is destroyed or simply driven away. But I cannot claim to have done the job if someone else does it for me. I would ask you not to interfere from here on.”

She did lift her head then, eyes fixed on his human form. So far, Veyl had known only demons that worked for their own pride and greed; more often than not, driven by pain and anger. And yet his words opposed that knowledge. She wanted to ask him a lot of things then: though she was grateful for the gentler human appearance, how come he did not enjoy his true form? How important this item was to him and why did he go to such lengths to fetch it? Perhaps he had not come far at all. She knew nothing of him, or of where he had come from.

I have not even asked his name. It seemed a sudden realization. Was it important? After today, perhaps she would never see the dragon again; and then his name would surely be of no relevance. Yet even if so, Veyl thought it wrong to keep addressing him by a name that embraced the whole of his species; he was an individual, and as such deserved a name.

There was no time for asking questions, however, if he or Veyl hoped to catch the demon before it got away again. Speaking of, it seemed odd to her that still it had made no movement. By now, it should have been aware of her and the dragon as well. The thought made her pause a moment longer, eyes fixed on the hard wooden frame, as if she were reluctant to enter at all. When she did push the door open, her gaze fell to scrutinize an empty room.

Veyl lifted her staff promptly, trying to separate her awareness of a presence that still lingered in the room from what her eyes were seeing, that is, nothing at all. She mumbled a quick spell to break an illusion charm, thinking that perhaps the demon was hiding behind it. When nothing happened, she stepped further into the room to investigate the unexpected problem. She never noticed nor felt the shadow that crept up behind her.

I seriously can't express how sorry I am for being so late. The rl problems are over but my muse had died for this site. It seems I'm getting it back now though. I hope you can forgive me--
DEEP RED OVER EVERYTHING
Not many of his precious humans had as much will and pride as this boy had. He was indeed something extraordinary. Those words that came flying out of his mouth matched a noble yokai more than a young human man. The dragon found himself smiling warmly as the boy's head was directed back to him once more. He had become familiar with this face by now and due to his individual as a whole, he clearly knew that this would not be their first and last encounter. He would find a way, no matter what, to follow this human being and his beautiful pride at least long enugh to earn his name. How pitiful; the dragon did not even know his name. That was a first for him. He wasn't one to skip introductions, but this time the situation was a tad bit different. Nevertheless, he planned to ask him after this incident was over.

The empty room up ahead was something he actually expected. From what he had learned chased it, his yokai thief enjoyed deceiving and running away from its hunter. This time might have been a bit different, but the image he was trying to fake was apparently one of his favorite activities. The room did not seem empty through the dragon's eyes, and the foul yokai's appearance behind the boy proved his vision right. Without delay, the human body faded away as Ranmaru took his true form once again, hissing forwards to the demon and grabbing it by the head with his sharp teeth. The room was small, but it did not prevent the dragon from treating the thief like a ragged doll, shaking it along with his head like a wolf would with its fresh pray in its mouth. No mercy. The yokai got what it deserved.

The dead creature's dripped down on the wooden floor from the fierce dragon's mouth, as he stared at the boy in front of him. All this had taken less than a few seconds; in the blink of an eye he had ripped the threat apart and had thrown it down beside him. He had done wrong in a way though. His promise was not to interfere with the young priest's business. He hadn't kept his promise. For the last time, he went back into his not so hostile human form and wiped away as much blood from his mouth as possible. Another one of his smiles made its way to his mouth and he took a slow step forward.

"I'm sorry, but I couldn't let it harm you. It would not be appropriate."

    Don't worry about it! Same goes for me, as I'm late ;;; glad things are better on your end though (?)




She hadn't the moment to react; by the time she turned, the dragon was already in its true form, and the demon beyond her help. Her eyes stayed on the beast before her as she nearly tore the rosary over her neck with one hand and gripped the staff high with the other. There was a binding spell on her lips, and she was one word from completing it when the dragon smiled through all the blood on his chin.

“I shouldn’t be surprised.”

Veyl said instead, eyeing what was left of the creature and the sticky red that caked its torn body. She’d seen him this time, had a good long look while he ripped the other demon apart like it was nothing. And as much as Veyl would have liked to claim that it did not frighten her, she could no more feel at ease with a dragon in the room. Not until that stupid smile appeared again anyway.

“Was it worth it?”

She was holding the rosary so tight her fingers had turned white. She felt a small pain in them, and had to fight the last word of the spell away from her tongue. Even if the creature had harmed her, was it better to kill it than try and bring it peace? Most of the blood was away from the dragon's mouth now, but the smile remained. As he inched forward, Veyl stepped back, still reluctant to lower her defence.  

“No one ever said it was an easy job. You get hurt helping others. But that wouldn’t matter to someone like you, when you can just,” she made a vague motion, as if she didn’t even know what to say to him. “Grab it with your big shiny teeth and toss it around like a- like a raggedy-”

Finally she lowered the staff and the rosary; let the weapon fall beside her as she turned her back on the dragon, cursing him under her breath. Her fingers found way to her head and gripped at the red strands of her hair.

“Selfish-” she looked at the dragon, pointed, grimaced and closed her mouth, only to mutter to herself again as she scanned the room, as if hoping someone would step out from hiding and help her find words to explain the situation to the owner.

Eeeh it's far better than before now, but I kinda tangled myself up with several other rp forums and I'm currently running around trying to reply to things. School started too and it's pretty bad, but I'll manage 'cause I love this thread. I adore it actually, idek why but yeah ajhdgahjsdg //shot

Oh btw, Veyl is now Ranmaru's perfect senpai so he's trying to impress her and stuff like that, I hope you dun mind hun' huehuehueee--
DEEP RED OVER EVERYTHING
"I... I just..."

His smile had already disappeared when the boy accused him of his harsh behavior. His actions din't have the result he was expecting, and his disappointment showed clearly on his face. He was not one to seek actions and words of gratitude for saving any kind of being , but this certain reply he got was something that caused a tightly bound knot to appear in his stomach. He had witnessed this kind of thing before, but it was so long ago he had forgotten the feeling. Guilt and disappointment mixed together made him feel so uneasy it was becoming troublesome to stand.

His new, precious human acquaintance was calling him selfish and he was at a loss of words. Had he done such wrong to be hated like this? The demon thief would not have had this kind of fate if it had accepted to turn the stolen mirror sooner. The foul thug had gone too far and it was only natural that he should be punished. So what wrong had he done? Maybe the punishment was a bit harsher than it should have been? According to his logic, it was completely fair.  So why did his little human judge him so severely? The dragon was confused, and the silence that followed after the boy's last words did not help much.

He lowered his head and lead his eyes to the blood stained fabric over his hand. Had he really gone too far? A quick glance over at the boy had him thinking of an immediate apology. He surely wouldn't feel right if they parted ways in such a manner this day. He didn't even know his name yet, for gods' sake! His eyes locked on the other's and his words flew straight out of his mouth.

"I'm sorry. I didn't mean to upset you; really. What can I do to gain your forgiveness? Please, demand anything you want."

    Oh, where else do you rp? //flails AHAH well I'm glad you like it; even with the delays, it's always fun for me to come back to this~~
    Veyl can't be a senpai omgsh she can't even take care of herself or teach anything useful fufufufu



“You wh- I mean you-”

Demand? She would not demand anything of him. She had neither the desire nor right. And her outburst was clearly uncalled for; a real priest surely would have handled the situation with far more grace than she. The expression Veyl now saw on his face made her arms lower to her sides as she tried to give way to calm inside her mind; and just think on what was to come next.

“Look I need to go back. You- don’t do anything else, all right? You’ve done quite enough I’d say.”

Reluctantly she looked away from him to gather her staff. Somehow she’d manage. Veyl had been in a similar situation often enough to learn to bear with it; less included murder before her eyes, of course, but even without the coin she would have earned on this job, well. She’d manage. Perhaps the owner would not care for the bloody corpse as much as she did. Perhaps the dragon had reason enough to do as he did, and she was selfish to think of her own loss. Still it left a bitter taste in her mouth.

Her curiosity, however, lingered at the edge of her thoughts. No matter the event, it seemed important to learn something from the encounter with this marvellous creature. And as she made to go by him she stopped, caught his eyes so honest in apology.

“There is one thing.”

It would be small and special as she tasted the name on her lips; strange and heavy in the silence that would follow. And maybe if their paths crossed, she’d be angry at him later again, but then she’d have a name to call him by.

“How may I call you, dragon? What is your name?”

//cries on your lap forever and ever begging for forgiveness--
DEEP RED OVER EVERYTHING
His fist remained clenched as he watched the other start his walk towards the exit. His fingers were having a serious debate on whether it would be wise for him to interfere with the priest's departure. And as the boy approached even closer, his hand was secords away from reaching out to the other hand and grabbing it desperately in a try to keep his company for a few minutes longer. He didn't do such a thing though; he didn't dare to, for he was worried he might scare or startle the precious boy like before.

And thankfully a question popped up and prevented further unnecessary situations. His head tilted to the side by few centimeters and his eyes looked curiously as he awaited for the other's request. The mention of an introduction awoke his previous thoughts and brought back his smile along ith what little hope he had of reconciling with the human boy. Another of his small smiles appeared and his voice softened.

"Ranmaru. They call me Ranmaru. And you? What should I call you by?"

Ranmaru. It seemed strangely fitting, though she was not yet sure why. She eased into his smile, the gentler voice; and it took a firm reminder that only moments before he had bloodied the floor of the room they still stood in. The smell of it lingered in the air, clinging to her skin. She wished not to stay longer, not here, not in the presence of this creature who confused her so; one moment tearing through flesh and the other offering the softest of smiles.

“Veyl,” she managed to push the name past her lips. It would be enough to know her by that name. She tore her eyes away from him, brushed a stray strand of hair from her face; and moved silently into the hall, eager to get out of the house and back to the tavern, to conclude this business and then be on her way.
