Thread: The fall of civilisation.....

    Her travels back towards her house was a long-winded one, though it appeared that Sylvannah was in a strange state of mind. The young woman of Elvish descent walked as fast as her legs could carry her. At the moment she had no idea whether to laugh or scream the place down. She slowly turned down her driveway and attempted to inspect her 'deadly' garage door. She gaped at the now obvious tears in the metal and examined it. Upon a closer look she swore loudly. "What's he done to my door!" She gruffly reached into the pocket from the remnants of the jacket, which was once her favourite, but she stopped suddenly as she reached the doorway. "...Oh don't tell me..."

    She threw open the door and it stopped at the door with a loud crash and slammed it behind her. She hung the keys neatly upon the wall and stormed into the living room. She briefly stopped in the doorway and dropped her jacket (or what was left of it) on the ground. Sylvannah flicked the stereo off and walked towards the couch. Standing over the sleeping Gibusu, she gathered what strength she had and threw a punch directly at his face...

    "Ah! What'd you do that for babe, I'm sleeping here." He rubbed his face which now had a red splotch from his injury. " I can see that. Firstly, you try to play around with me and almost kill me, then you go and blow my cover by killing some random people in a bar, then you get yourself knocked out, trash my house...and you even had the nerve to kiss me? What kind of person are you?" She yelled. She turned away from him, picked up her things from the floor and walk off to her room without looking back. "You're lucky, I'm not kicking you out, you'd have a damned sore ass by now. Clean my house...no wait, better yet, clean yourself up, you look like you crawled out of a dumpster." She called back condescendingly.

    Gibusu, as he rolled off the couch looked down at his red jacket and black pants, "Dumpster!? Babe, you obviously don't know how much these clothes cost!" he called out after the retreating figure, shortly after he heard the loud slam of a bedroom door. Gibusu scowled and smelt himself quickly, "Hey, Sylvie might be right, shower time!"

    Taking off the jacket and throwing it at the ground in disgust, he quickly made his way around the house opening every door he came to, looking for the bathroom, he opened one and had a pillow promptly thrown at him, obviously the bed-room of one, angry Sylvannah..... but after a few more wrong rooms he found the right one and quickly bathed himself , not bothering to wait for the hot water, he just turned the cold on at full blast and stepped under the chilly on-slought.

    He let his hair get drenched, which in itself was a long task, as his whole body was covered with fur. Completting this, Gibusu knelt down and picked up her shampoo and examing the bottle, up-ended it on his body, empting the bottle, oh well, she told me to get cleaned up! With all his thick red fur cleaned, he jumped out of the shower, feeling fully refreshed, all his wounds healed, all his hair, and body cleaned, he was ready for some clothes!

    Gibusu jumped from the shower and found a fresh towel in a near-by cupboard that was under the sink of the bath-room, he used that towel to half dry himself with, then he removed another and draped it around his waste, to cover his....hmmm, privates? He then marched proudly to the door, then remembering something he came back in and removed his walled from the pocket of his pants, and continued back out the door and went outside the house and down the street.

    1 hour later he returned to the house, decked out in a dazzling white suit, the coat that he wore, hung to the ground around his feet, and the boots that he wore were topped at the toe's with shining, reflective steel caps, upon his head, holding his long black hair back, he wore a tall white top hat, and in one hand he held a long black cane, with the largest diamond he had ever seen as the handle, and a hard steel cap as the foot.

    Placing both heels together proudly as he stood there, arching his back and standing up as straigh as was possible, even his tail was acting a part of his finery, draped over one shoulder as if it were some kind of un-orthadox strap, or belt. He put both hands on his hips and called out, "Sylvie, if i am so revolting, you must come and send me on my way, but please just judge my new attire before i leave...." He called out, nearly joking on his sarcasm as he spoke.....

    She got up from her bed, upon which she lay. Sylvannah was feeling much better....Hope he didn't leave the bathroom in a mess She went out of her room, though she changed out of her clothes into simple t-shirt and shorts and followed Gibusu's voice as it trailed throughout the house. As she appeared in the doorway of the living room Sylvannah stood blankly at Gibusu in his new attire. She stood, leaning against the door frame examining him raising an eyebrow, then bursted out in a large fit of laughter. "You're...rather overdressed aren't you? It also seems so out of place that a vagabond such as yourself even has the money to buy that sort of thing. Did you rip me off?"

    Gibusu stood, obviously offended and looked at her menacingly. "Well, okay...it's an improvement. Happy?" She replied quickly as to prevent offending him further. She came closer towards him and closely examined the suit. "Right, and you left the house in a towel, I'm guessing?" She laughed. She watched his expression closely, but however her mind was shifted elsewhere. The pendant which hung at his neck, yet underneath his shirt, glowed a strange ruby red. Sylvannah's eyes widened. "Why, I've never seen it glow like that before." She pointed at the light that shone through his shirt.

    He quickly stared down in surprise as it emanated brightly. "I've only ever known it to glow blue, how did you do that" She asked bringing the pendant out from within his clothing and examining it from all sides. She looked up at him shock covered her face and she paced back and forth thinking. What does it all mean, why...is this...? "I think that the pendant...is reacting to you." She put her finger to her chin and tapped it, totally in thought. She sat confused on the couch and thought a little harder, there was no explanation that helped her, she was at a complete loss. "Gibusu, what do you think?"

    Gibusu raised the kneck of his shirt and took out the pendant which quickly illuminated the whole room with an eery red glow, "Wow! Its never been that bright yet, i thought it was always red? Blue for you huh? Cool......" Gibusu's eyes came up peering from under the rim of his hat at the girl, deep in thought, he came to a quick conclusion, and held out the hand which held the Pendant to the girl, "Show me then....i guess"

    The girl reached out quickly to grab the pendant, eager to get it back after the drawn out separation, but as her finger-tips touched the metal surface of the pendant, her head was thrown backwards as a flood entered her mind, new thoughts, feelings, emotions that she had never felt before, the same was happening to Gibusu, except he was handling it much better, instead of the grimace that the girl with-held a over-joyed smile crossed his face.

    Suddenly, as if by clock-work both head clicked back up and they stared at each other with a shocked expression, and both at the same time exclaimed, "That was you!"

    A smile passed onto Gibusu's face, while a scowl appeared on Sylvannah's, again at the same time, but this time different sentences, Gibusu muttered lazily, "Your lovely...." while Sylvannah screamed, "Your revolting!"

    Gibusu instantly recoiled backwards letting go of the pendant, all the new thoughts pumping through his mind, it was strange, but it felt so good, but he could feel the new thoughts breaking his mind also, giving him an aweful headache, the thoughts seemed to go through his head like a pack of ravenous dogs, ripping his memories, feelings, thoughts all of them, ripping them all to shreds, although a slight smile passed accross his face as he fell backwards...unconcious onto Sylvannah's couch....

    "Damn it all, honestly!" The fair headed woman seemed to scorn the pendant itself. She left Gibusu as he smiled and fell upon the couch. The sight of him practically made her sick as she ran out of the room and slumped against her bed. "...He is absolutely...horrendously, revolting..." she curled up and nested on the bed clutching her head between her hands tightly.

    Her mind suddenly changed at that instant. She remembered nothing, however, when they both touched the pendant it seemed to glow the colour of young amethysts...it was a strange sight to see. Did I make a mistake in giving him custody? After what had happened, she decided, yes. Though there was nothing that she could do about it now. Her mind, she thought was once at peace. Now it seemed filled with images of bloodshed, horror. Like, war ripped her head open and allowed peace to flow out then, completely sealed it from ever coming back in. Sylvannah had felt as if she'd lost an important part of herself. Her heart was empty, she didn't feel the warmth that it once possessed.

    She rolled over slowly onto her back and stared at the ceiling. "What's happened to me? I don't like this feeling." She brought herself up from lying down to sitting at the edge of the bed. Even that too didn't feel the same to her. She again thought about the young man which lay upon her couch. Sylvannah grabbed a blanket, walked out of her bedroom, and carefully draped it upon the figure which lay limply on the couch. She sighed, flopped herself on the seat next to him, cuddled herself and sobbed.

    To be in her position, you'd of felt sorry for yourself too. She cried quietly to herself and let her tears flow freely down her her cheeks. For she'd just lost herself. She lived 20 years knowing who she was and lost it all in an instant. Then she thought about the thoughtless idiot which lay so serenly next to her. She cried a little harder, feeling sorry for him.

    Gibusu in his state of un-consciousness heard the quiet sobs of the girl, how strange, drawing himself back as quickly as he could, he threw his eyes open, just as soft tears fell on his cheeks from above. His eyes cleared, and the blurriness left, and he what he saw disturbed him, the once strong and resolute Sylvannah was crouching there before him sobbing her tears over him.

    He lay there momentarily just watching her as the tears flowed, before he realized something that hadn't been there the whole time, he suddenly went into panic, what were these memories that were in his head? These weren't the thoughts he remembered where was his planet....he didn't know.....what was the planet called....he didn't know, but what he did know confused him, he seemed to know a great deal about.....the elvish heritage? What the hell? Why do i know about them?

    Why don't i know where i grew up? I seem to have forgotten my parents, what!? I think that i grew up in this city, and didn't have parents, i love my mum and dad! Gibusu raised himself with a loud groan, all these thoughts, so confusing! He suddenly got an idea, and turned to the girl with an inquistive look on his face, and put a hand under her face and forced it up, looking into her eyes, "Tell me, what do you know about the planet Gorofusion?"

    Gibusu forced Sylvannah's head upwards to look straight at him. His eyes full of question, but also fear. She stopped crying "...What am I supposed to know about the planet Gorofusion?! ...of all the stupid questions..."

    She quietly searched her mind and came upon some strange memories, wait, mum and dad? ...I don't know who my parents are... trees...wow, I see, underdeveloped farmland. "Gorofusion is an underdeveloped planet, rich of grassland and civilisation is primitive...yet it's so much more beautiful then here. And it was the home of many people, called 'Loridelie'?". I see the light of two. The night sky has two moons which shine side by side one named Altos and the Redina. And, I have a family? They have such kind faces, I miss them very much..." She sat patiently waiting for his response. He sat wide eyed across from her.
    "How do I know all this? ...What happened to us?" She saw a flicker from the side of her eye and saw the pendant lying on the floor next to her. She picked it up and gently held it in her hand. The pendant began to glow a tender blue light, though she felt differently towards it. "It doesn't feel the same. I want to know what's going on, I can't live like this" She sadly dropped her head and tossed the pendant to Gibusu. "I'm sure it will be more kind to you."

    With a large releived sigh Gibusu stood, "Well Sylvie, its as i thought, you obviously don't know how to read runes do you?" The blonde headed girl shook her head brefly watching his stalking figure walk jirlkily around the room, "Remember earlier when i was examining this thing? Well i noticed a single rune to be repeated all over the back of this things casing....." He turned the intricate device over in his hands and pointed at what she had just thought to be repeated picutres all around the side of the caseing, "You know what it says? ....To Be One"

    "I'm sorry i had to include you in my little test but, i beleive that this could be our tool to actually pull off this little 'heist' that you had planned, i beleive that this could be one of the ancient Elvish artifacts that i have know learned about....from your memories," Bowes his head, as if thanking her, "There were many made, as you know, and some were said to hold the power to 'fuse' two beings together momentarily, usually used in marriage ceremonies, although the magic only lasts for up to around 30 minutes, i think that should last us just long enough to get this thing done? What do you think, your brains my body...should work a charm i think." Gibusu let out a quick burst of laughter, keeping his eyes locked on the artifact he held in his hands.

    "I think our last try, we just didn't hold onto it long enough, and it only swapped our minds, as far as i know thats not supposed to happen, and it should be reveresed and fixed after completeting it....i think, this thing doesn't come with instructions...."

    Sylvannah laughed weakly at his diluted joke. "Yes, it doesn't. It's ancient. It's obvious, due to it's great craftsmanship. I've had it since I was a little girl. But, 'to be one' that is the thing that scares me the most. I can't stand to lose myself, to you. You scare me beyond belief." She looked sadly into his eyes. Gibusu sat across from her, eyeing her curiously. Sylvannah tossed the pendant back and forth between her hands, it glowed an iridescent blue. She held it in one palm and examined it closely. "I don't understand how it operates as well, I know that it can transport me from this world to another. It's happened before. Now, wait, I must see it again. I am blue, you are red. How can the be?" She tossed it gently in the air, Gibusu quickly brought himself off the couch and plucked it from the air with his tail. With his tail he tossed it into the palm of his hand.

    The pendant, though so small in size irradiated an immense amount of light. What was now blue shone a colour very much close to that of raging fire, though thick, like blood. Sylvannah asked him to hold out his palm to her. This time as she watched the pendant and its new light, it confused her. It was exactly the same, but a different colour. She looked at Gibusu though the flooded red light. His fur of course blended in perfectly, he looked strange, but she dismissed it. "Okay, put it down now, it's making me sick." She sighed through pursed lips. "I don't think we should go through with this. I don't know how long it would be before this drives me crazy. I have your mind in my head, yet it's all wrong, and you're a terrible person..." His look showed deep hurt. Which tore at her heart "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say it so...badly, but that is how I feel." She pushed herself off the seat slowly and walked out of the room, back towards her bedroom.

    Gibusu looked down at the pendant, thinking about those words, they repeated themselves in his mind, over and over;

    "....... you're a terrible person..."

    Sure he had heard that before, but it hadn't never meant something before, this sentence had come straight from the heart and came out like daggers....his eyes came up and watched Sylvannah retreat to her bedroom.

    The pendant breifly hovered in the air before falling to the ground as Gibusu disappeared from behind it, his body breifly shimmered in the air as nothing more then a living shadow, before it instantly appeared in front of Sylvannah, blocking the entrance to her bedroom. His eyes burning in his sockets, he glared at the girl, although his eyes had travel upwards to be level with hers, he still seemed to stand over her menacingly.

    "Terrible am I!?" He growled through clenched teeth, his tail whipping from side to side, once striking the door, leaving a long imprint in the hard wood, and shaking the foundations, "What about you then huh? What about all those years ago, back in New York, you weren't such a lovely creature then either....were you!" The growl turned into a roar as he shoved his face forwards into hers, "What about that...poor young boy," Shaking his head looking into her eyes with mock care, "What you did to him was FAR from nice my dear....it looks like we aren't so different after all, huh?"

    Seeing the girl flinch at his words, he remembered that she actually 'wouldn't' remember what had happened, but at least now he had leverage over her...."You aren't such an angel my dear, i can see by that face that you have no recollection of what you did while you were a child." Gibusu now feeling it was safe to reveal some of his more favoured 'skills' he reached out to finally manicured hands and put them on each side of her head, one on each temple, and forced the memories of her teenage years in New York back into her mind.

    "Remember, NOW my dear? Remeber all those nights you used to spend hidden in dark shadowed alleys? Remember all the times when some poor happless being wandered in? Remember what you did to them? I'M TERRIBLE! HA! We are two pea's in a pod my dear, we might as well get this job over and done with, and i'll never have to set my eye's on your hypocritical face ever again!"

    Not paying the girl anytime to grieve over her lost memories Gibusu kept up his glare as his tail continued its angry path backwards and forth........
