Re: Individual RP: Kai-Mei
OOC: Hey, we reached our year anniversary! <3 YEAH, CHAINY, BE JEALOUS. Sorry I couldn't stick around for two, and thanks for being my ranger. You were awesome for putting up with me and my stupid-silly long posts. ^.^
Aaand... yeah. ._.
Kai stared and hemmed and hawed at the Drifloon for a while. She could go into an epic flashback, drop some references, just stand there and stare a year, but... no. It was ironic, really. She had come into the Park looking for a bunch of things, and she had found some of them. And here she was, staring at a Drifloon right in the face-- rare little bunch of creatures, the little blighters were-- and Kai just sighed.
<Don't blink,> Fred whispered intently in her head. <Whatever you do, don't blink. Blink and you're dead. Blink and they'll carry you away with them, send you back in time->
"Oh, hush," Kai chided. "They're not weeping."
<THE ANGELS HAVE THE PHONE BOX.> He paused expectantly. <I think we've provided anyone with enough information for them to understand that we're not clinically insane.> Another pause. <I've got a t-shirt that says that...>
"We?" Kai asked with a smile. Then, turning to Ivy and grinning regretfully, Kai found herself saying, "You know, it's sorta funny... I'd meant to capture a Drifloon here, a long time ago, but I think it's okay now." She would add that she had also intended to do her run in a reasonable span of time through the Heavens and not take forever, and that she wouldn't have to leave her run before finishing her allotted encounters-- seriously, three more left... it was practically infuriating-- but that would just sound odd. Ivy would probably understand. Odds are Kai wasn't the first trainer to walk out on a park run before she was done, but it was still a little odd inside. Her first park run, and it was still running, all those years later. Kai was tempted, for a moment, to say nothing and let the moment sit there, forever in eternity, and leave it there to remain open, but that would be silly. No. That would be melodramatic and foolish, and she couldn't have that running around. Closure was good. Closure was nice, actually. "Um," Kai hawed eloquently for a moment, and then continued speaking, "this might sound odd or silly, but I think I've got to go home now. Spent a little bit too long in the park, and I've already captured three Pokemon, right?" She gave a smile, this one much weaker than the others. "Yeah," she added distractedly. "As much as I hate to say it, I think I'll leave. The Heavens will always be here, won't they?" Unless, of course, they wouldn't, but that was just plain ridiculous.
<You're shitting me. You're leaving.>
"You already read my mind; don't pretend like you didn't." Kai pretended to sniff and sound aloof. "And hey, if you don't bother me about this, I promise I'll let you outside and explore for a bit. Rules be damned."
She could feel him grin. <Yeah,> he said happily, almost wistful. <I'd like that. It's not like anything could go wrong... or something...> Realization dawned on him. <You've just trolled the Park in the biggest way possible. That's hardly fair. You should've let me help.>
Kai was already standing up to leave, adjusting those little fiddly straps on her backpack and making sure that her camera was all set. Even if it had exploded in her face, it was a nice camera. "Thanks for taking me this far, Ivy," she said truthfully --funny adjective, that one, as if normal people would really talk without intending the truth-- "and who knows? Maybe we'll see each other again, right?"
