[Remember Mindy's plan to save Christmas? Well, it turns out that Mindy failed to save anything, but Black Mage succeeded. Yay?

At any rate, those who actually go to the tree on Christmas eve as she requested, will be greeted with a gruesome sight. Mindy is dead, and her corpse is artfully hung on one of the lower branches of the tree as if it were an ornament......

She tried, Mayfield.]

[That tiny corpse looks familiar...

Oh shit. Slugger looks around for any sign of Pokey -- he cannot let his friend see this.]

[ooc: Permission for Slugger to take down the body - Y? N?]

[Haha, too late for that buddy. In fact, seeing you staring at something kind of caught his curiosity. He'll just be walking over now.]

Hey, what're you-

[Oh. Well. Now he sees it. And just goes quiet, instantaneously at the sight. A few long, silent seconds pass before he puts a hand on Slugger's shoulder and gently shakes the other boy. It's a weird motion for him to be giving but...for some reason it makes him feel better. And he actually sounds calm. Reasonable.]

...C'mon. We need to get her down. We can't leave her like this.
Dec. 25th, 2011 01:54 am (UTC)
[Slugger was just about to disentangle Mindy from the branches when he hears Pokey's voice and nearly jumps out of his skin. Initially, he tries to block Pokey's view of the corpse but it's too late and he steps back a bit, looking at the ground.]


I can do it, if you want...
Dec. 25th, 2011 04:41 am (UTC)
[Pokey thinks for a moment, just...looking. He's honestly hard to read at the moment.]

...We'll both do it. Get her down and I'll show you where we'll take her.
Dec. 25th, 2011 04:49 am (UTC)
[This isn't something he's going to argue with Pokey about so without a word, Slugger nods and does as told. He can already guess who might have done this...]
Dec. 25th, 2011 04:50 am (UTC)
[Pokey just nods for a moment at Slugger. He can guess too, but he won't say it out loud yet.]

Can you carry her? ...We'll take her to her house.
Dec. 25th, 2011 05:00 am (UTC)

[Quietly, he gathers the girl in his arms and lifts her easily. His plan, had he a moment to formulate one, would have been the same---to take Mindy to her home and place her in her room.]
Dec. 25th, 2011 05:01 am (UTC)
[Pokey doesn't look back at Slugger or Mindy, just straight ahead as he walks, quietly for a moment.]

Where are you staying right now? You have a place to keep safe in?

[Because it's so much easier to discuss than what they just found.]
Dec. 25th, 2011 05:30 am (UTC)
[Slugger follows behind, barely moving his feet as the wheels roll.]

Here and there. Your house, the school... sometimes I sneak back home.

[Even if they don't all remember him, he likes to be around the people whom he felt attached to. He kept hidden from their sight, but he still liked to see them and hear their voices.]
Dec. 25th, 2011 05:34 am (UTC)
Alright. Good.

[Just as long as you're staying safe, Slugger. That's all he wants to know, all he cares about. Just stay safe.]

...You haven't seen Picky at all, have you?
Dec. 25th, 2011 06:33 am (UTC)
No. [He really wishes he had a better answer than that.]

Can't find him?

[Pokey just shakes his head.]


After this, I'm going to look for him.
Dec. 25th, 2011 07:00 am (UTC)
I'll help.
Dec. 25th, 2011 07:04 am (UTC)
I know.

[And he does. He just intrinsically knows that you would. It's odd. He's considered you his best friend for awhile. But it's only now that what that all entails is hitting him.]

Thank you. I just need to make sure the nerd is safe.

Fate could care less about this 'fake' business. She can't be sure if it's even true or not... but even if it was, there's no reason to kill them. They're still people, after all.

So when she sees the broken body of a child - a child from her house, one she was supposed to protect - she can't help but scream.]
Dec. 24th, 2011 11:11 pm (UTC)
[He's here, just as Mindy requested. He's had a rough day, what with the love of his life trying to stab him and all, so the thought of just being able to quietly celebrate the holiday, even if it's just him and Mindy, is a nice one.

Until he actually gets to there and hears Fate's scream is painfully reminded of home.]

Mindy, no.
Dec. 26th, 2011 05:59 am (UTC)
Why... I can't... [Can't talk. Can't understand. She's been in the military for nearly twenty years now, and has seen some pretty horrible things. But a murdered child? It still hurts. Every time.]

How can someone do something like this...
Dec. 27th, 2011 05:32 pm (UTC)
[He's seen so much senseless violence in his adult life. Death and spilled blood just based on color. It pained him every time, especially when ones so young were involved. This is no exception.

He swallows hard and approaches Fate, a mixture of feelings welling in his chest, and wraps his arm around her shoulders.]

Dec. 25th, 2011 06:35 pm (UTC)
[Fate's wolf is around. She may be 'fake' but she's around... and not talking or approaching her master. Fate may catch sight of a bit of tail, a flash of orange or see a familiar paw print in the snow, but Arf doesn't approach.

And she wants to. With Fate's scream, knowing where it comes from, she... she wants to hold Fate in her arms, stroke her hair and tell her everything will somehow, SOMEHOW, be okay.

But she doesn't. The wolf just continues to watch over her master from afar. It's all she can do anymore.]
Dec. 26th, 2011 06:59 am (UTC)
[She doesn't care about "fakes" or people being "erased" or anything like that anymore. All that matters is that a child - a child under her care was killed, and it's hurting. Badly.

She doesn't even need their bond to sense Arf. There's no hatred or anything towards her anymore, if there was any at all; she of all people knows how cruel it can be to treat someone horribly because they look like, but aren't the same as, someone else.]

... Come here, please?
Dec. 26th, 2011 07:08 am (UTC)
[A few long moments pass before the wolf's presence is felt behind Fate and there's a warmth of fur brushing against her lower back. Arf stops there, standing where Fate could lean back against her if she wished, where she could be support for her master.

But still, she says nothing.]
Dec. 26th, 2011 07:20 am (UTC)
[Fate doesn't lean backagainst her. Instead, she turns, kneels down, and wraps her arms tightly around Arf. Curls her hands into fists and buries her face in the long, thick fur.

She's not crying, but she seems close to it. So she stays like that for a long time, just clinging to the wolf.]
Dec. 26th, 2011 07:24 am (UTC)
[Arf wraps her tail as much around Fate as she can and rests her head against her master's back. She thinks about shifting, wrapping Fate up in her arms, but... She shouldn't.

She just shouldn't.]
Dec. 24th, 2011 11:32 pm (UTC)
[They were all supposed to come together on Christmas Eve, weren't they? That's what the little girl on the phone said, and that's what many had agreed to, right? She wanted to see that. Maybe even be a part of it.

She doesn't want any part in this.

That was probably the little girl who had been on the phone...]

Who did this...?

[And then louder, demandingly, as a challenge]

Who did this?!
Dec. 25th, 2011 03:41 am (UTC)

[Nozomi recognized the girl on hung up - it was the one who approached her earlier.]

No, no, no...! [she runs up to Mindy, horrified.] Who... who could have...?

[she feels guilty. Maybe if she had her powers, she could have saved her. Right now, she just feels... numb.]
Dec. 25th, 2011 04:04 am (UTC)
The icon is all that is necessary here
Dec. 27th, 2011 02:45 pm (UTC)

[And a continuation of swearing in Spanish.]
