115. [Text/Action for Mahogany]

[TEXT-- PUBLIC]


General announcement here


I don't really know what kinds of contacts Dad kept here but for anyone who knew him, Harry Mason is gone. His stuff was mostly left to me and one other person so I guess that's really all there is to say about it.

Later.

-Heather



[ACTION-- MAHOGANY TOWN]



[Heather's always mostly let her Pokemon run free-- or at least the more reliable ones-- when the gang is bunkered down at a hotel somewhere. After all, not everybody gets to come along when they're between cities, so time spent outside of the box by default takes place mostly within walking distance of a Pokemon Center.]

[Today there can be a small cluster of Pokemon seen by the entrance of the Mahogany Inn. A Manectric, unusually subdued for anyone who knows her, gently licking the head of a Pikachu. The electric mouse has a slightly crumpled sheet of paper in her paws, and behind her, a Noctowl shelters a small, rotund Hoothoot with one wing while peering over the Pikachu's shoulder.]

[While it's little more than coos and soft canine whuffles to most ears, any Pokemon or person with a sensitive ear can probably pick up the quiet muttering coming from the group.]


It's okay, Hazel. My trainer went away too but New Trainer always takes good care of me. She even shares her lunches.

I-I know...

Just think though, now we can play all the time. I know we're sad, but that will be fun, right?

Now is not the time to be talking about playing, Tricia. Have some tact.


Okay, okay...


W-... where is Mr. Trainer's daughter, a-anyway? She just left after seeing the letter...

Up on the roof. Sunny is with her, so she will be fine... Probably. Come, we should go collect the others. She... will come down when she's ready.






[Tricia the Manectric, Hazel the Pikachu, Claudy the Noctowl]

[The sun was almost down when the sound of some ungainly scrabbling came from behind Owl Blanket and Heather. It's been a while since Henry has climbed anything but once he's topside he stork-walks along the roof and lowers himself down a few respective feet away from her.]

[He isn't taking any pains to hide the fact that his eyes are a little red.]


I'm gonna order some take-out for us later.

[Henry settles with his knees around his ears and fumbles with one of his shoelaces. He's not great with people--he never has been. But all those years of college socializing couldn't hold a holy candle to what Johto has done for him. This was the family--the puzzle that lopsided Henry fit in perfectly.]

[And he knows there isn't anything he could say that she hasn't heard before. He steals a glance at her hands, well aware of the faint scars that peppered her knuckles.]


There's a place on...the other side of town that does soup in a styrofoam cup that stays hot. It's pretty good.

Are you going to be all right?

[Wait, no that's a stupid question.]

We don't know each other that well, but if you want to talk about it...

Just let me know I guess.

Yeah, I figured that out.

I know what it's like to lose important people and know they won't come back. I know that isn't much in the way of comfort, but I do understand.

[ Snake felt a pang of guilt in his heart; he couldn't have known Harry would leave again, but knowing that Heather was without her father again... The kid had friends in Mahogany, but it wasn't the same. ]

Hey, kid.

You ever want to talk, you let me know. I'll make time for you.


[ The old soldier paused in his texting, thinking about what to write. She probably didn't want to hear any apologies, or questions on her well-being... No one was okay after something like this.

When Big Mama had died in his arms, Snake wasn't okay. Though Harry left, after what Heather had told Snake, it was the same as dying. ]


You just make the call, whenever you're ready.

[personal profile] imthe_shit 2014-06-09 02:47 am (UTC)(link)

Hey, crying-for-hours is way better to look at than covered in bruises, bleeding and scar tissue, but don't worry, I won't force you on video.


[ He chuckled a bit, adjusting the sucker in his mouth. ]

You know what? Boxes are pretty good tools to use if you want to hide away for a while. And if anyone tries to find you, you can punish them with your puffy face.

[ Tone really doesn't travel well through text, but perhaps Heather would know that he was joking with her. ...Though he may have been serious about the box part. ]

Whenever I'm not feeling my best, a box is a pretty good place to sit and think. Just you and your thoughts; no one to disturb you, they won't even know you're there.

Sometimes that's good for a little while.


[ There were a few times when he'd pull the trick on Otacon... just to avoid getting scolded if Snake messed with his computer. Or if he wanted to avoid Sunny's eggs. ]

[If it was about anyone else, Crow would probably be at Heather's side already, trying his best to comfort her. He's lost friends and people close to him too, both in this world and his home, so he can sympathize with those who lose them as well, but... thing is, it isn't "anyone else".

It's about her father.

The duelist doesn't even remember his parents, and while he does know the pain of being left alone, he can't exactly claim the same about losing them. Of course, he'll miss Harry himself─ over the course of, well, years, he's grown to be like a father that he's never had to him. And if that's how he's feeling, then what is Heather going through right now? ... He's not sure if saying that he can imagine that wouldn't be a stretch.

So... How can he help his friend out? Comfort her? Is that even possible in a situation like this? Honestly, Crow can't tell for certain, but it's one of the rare times where he quite openly doubts himself.

But hell if this means he's not gonna try.

Having struggled with those thoughts and feelings for a better part of the day, it's already late afternoon by the time the duelist musters up the courage to look for Heather, though knowing her as well as he does, it doesn't really take him a long time before he finds her on the roof. He figures if she'd rather not have any company right now, she'll just tell him, but for now... he's here if she needs him.]


... Hey.

[There's a moment of silence as Crow finds himself at a loss for words. Truth to be told, he did see it coming─ as passionate his speeches can be at times, facing a situation like this makes it difficult to figure out what to say. Although, all things considered... it might be better not to say anything.

The duelist moves to sit down next to his friend, choosing not to look at her for the time being but rather stare at the horizon. Following that, he gently places his hand over Heather's, giving it a tight squeeze.

It's probably one of those moments when actions speak louder than any words he could come up with.]

[She understands the feeling, losing her father. It's not something she'd wish upon anyone.]

Sugarcube, are you alright?

[personal profile] sitdownbecider 2014-07-06 05:19 am (UTC)(link)
[She's concerned, but really, it's best not to pry. AJ knows all too well about locking up her emotions.]
