Uh, the song is Moth's Wings by Passion Pit ...or is it the other way around? I don't remember x.x This may be a bit off xD 1: it's early for me 2: My mind is entirely on this Korean drama I was watching. . 3:...it's really like one, since I'm just sleepy. xD
Whose side are you on?
What side is this anyway?
Put down your sword and crown
Come lay with me on the ground
Lucy stared at the place she had seen glimpses of, for what seemed ages now, in wonder. She bit her bottom lip as relief gave way to worry. Yes, they were here now, but what were they going to do? It's not like Loke and her could go around in their current clothes...or with their current looks.
Loke grabbing her by the arm and pulling her up to a standing position shocked her out of her thoughts. She tilted her head back and stared at him, hoping he had the answers. Her eyes must have reflected what she was thinking because Loke suddenly sighed.
"You place too much hope in me." The words were just a tired murmur, but there was something beneath his words hinting to the fact that he liked where she placed her hopes.
Loke didn't let them sit there any longer than they had to, he was already dragging Lucy behind him towards the clothesline with clean clothes hanging from it. He said nothing, just peered around, looking for any sign of people. After seeing none, he frowned but motioned for Lucy to grab some clothes.
Lucy grabbed a plain white dress, the fabric was soft beneath her fingers and smelled like the flowered bushes they had been hanging above. She knew he probably wouldn't think to get clothes for himself when his lips were set in a firm, concentrated line. She shook her head and fought a sigh as she also grabbed some clothes for him. "Come on Loke, let's go."
Loke looked back at her, his eyes looking confused for a few mere moments before he shook himself and started to move her towards the woods that weren't even ten feet away.
Lucy didn't like it, any of it. Something felt off...
Then add in all the thoughts swirling around in her head, the anxious questions demanding answers.
She still didn't have answers. Not even for the simplest of questions, like what was she going to do? She didn't know that. She didn't know if being in the past was going to affect the future. She didn't know if her presence here was somehow going to affect the Princess or vice versa.
She knew nothing, she was just acting on a whim, an impulse. She honestly felt like a child again. She sighed and forced the feeling away, she didn't have the time to focus on such things. She looked in curiosity at the forest they had walked into, it was thick with trees of course, the trees towered over her, their roots thick and reaching through the Earth, rising out at some point before meeting the Earth once more.
Even if the forest was pretty, it still didn't ease her mind.
"It'll be fine." Loke murmured from beside her, his voice low.
Lucy turned her head towards him, her heart beating faster from the small shock he had given her by speaking. She had honestly forgotten he was there.
Loke smiled at her, it was a warm smile, though she could see the lines of stress around his eyes.
She shook her head, the anxiety in her seeming to claw its way up to the front. "I don't believe that..." She drew in a shaky breath "At this point, we have no idea what will happen, but what we do need to know is what we're going to do now."
Loke didn't say anything for a few moments, his eyes betraying nothing. "You're right Lucy," He smiled a wry smile. "Never thought I'd say that, but you are, at this point in time, we're going to try and blend in." He held up the clothes they had just...borrowed. "After that, we'll try to gather more information."
Lucy didn't have much more to say after Loke had stated what they were going to do, thing were a tad...awkward between them now. Lucy sighed, and resumed the task of changing into the clothes from this time period, she assumed Loke was doing the same.
He leaned back against his chair, not caring if the wood creaked and groaned, and propped his feet on top of his desk, not caring if he mussed up the papers under his boots. His plans were going along quite nicely, and the little blonde reincarnation wasn't messing them up. In fact, she was furthering them along in her attempts to mess them up.
Well, he mused, it was more like she was trying to find answers than messing his plans up. He was entirely sure that she didn't even know who he was.
His attention turned towards the door as it creaked open on its hinges, he silently filed away a mental note to oil the hinges later, the creaking really did get annoying. His eyes dropped to the hood figure that stood in the doorway. He couldn't help the small lift in the corner of his mouth, this was the person responsible for making his plans practically complete. This was his own little traitor. "So?" he asked, his voice a deep rumble across the room.
The hooded figure ducked their head in a quick bow, before raising it again, the cloak still shadowing their face. It was something they had agreed upon, just in case someone did manage to infiltrate his ranks. "Everything is going as planned, the Princess is very ill, and the knight has practically lost his mind over it."
He nodded his head. Perfect. "What about the High Commander?"
The person ducked their head once more, a smug air about them. "The High Commander has been successfully taken hostage, though we haven't been able to get information from him yet."
He shook his head. "Doesn't matter, him being gone helps my plan along already." He couldn't help but grin, he would be the first to change time, to make the worlds to his liking. Both this Fiore, and the modern day Fiore. They didn't necessarily have to be his, they both just have to be ruined.
That is what the King and the High Commander would get for betraying him, for locking him up and leaving him to die in the deepest pit they could possibly find. He had managed to escape, and here he is, getting his revenge.
Yes, super long wait, for a short, probably confusing update. xD Eh, review, do whatever. Yay for shortness! xD Funny how I can't manage to get this past two pages on my word processor...yet on my other project, chapter one is already five pages...makes no sense to me.
