Thokk's Lands II

Far from the town there is a small coastal village.  It is quaint and unremarkable save for a single thing.  Over looking the village is a magnificently large castle on a hill.  These are Thokk's lands.

At least they were.  Currently the castle and surrounding fields are controlled by Firiat and the remains of the Order.
Obscurejones

We discussed when he is allowed to touch my things.
Who

"Must have been a very spirited discussion."
Obscurejones

He smiles at her.
It was.
Who

"So when is he allowed to touch your things?"
Obscurejones

Kar moves closer to her and shows the fangs he grew for the discussion.
He isn't.
Who

"Good to hear, I wouldn't like being shared."
Obscurejones

Kar's face darkens.
Good.
Who

"So what else is there to do around here besides being tortured?"
Obscurejones

There are the gardens, the museum, the village...
Who

"A museum?"
Obscurejones

Old souvenirs.  He walks to the wardrobe and begins looking for a new shirt.
Who

"That sounds interesting."
Obscurejones

He cleans his hands and teeth and puts on a a new shirt and vest.  Confidant in his appearance, he extends an arm to Erou.
Who

She takes it and'll follow him where ever.

((Goodnight y'all!))
Obscurejones

He leads her to the museum, and starts to show her the exhibits.
Who

She looks at them.

"So where'd you get all this stuff?"
Obscurejones

Mostly from old vanquished enemies.
He points out a few weapons of questionable use in the display cases.
Of course some of it...
He pauses as they get to an empty case.
Huh.
Who

"Something missing?"
Obscurejones

Yes.  There is definitely something missing.
He checks the label on the case.
Well... damn.
Who

"What is it?"
Obscurejones

It's a collar.  Father kept it here.  No one was allowed to touch it let alone remove it...  It should be here.  He shrugs.
Odd.
Who

"Anything special about this collar?"
Obscurejones

It... belonged to John's mother.  Kar seems uncomfortable.
I'll have to remember to mention it to Al when he recovers.
Who

"So it's not like a doomsday device or anything then."
Obscurejones

He laughs.
Not that I know of.  I believe it's just a memento.


(Deadtime)
Who

"Nothing to worry about then."
Obscurejones

I suppose so.
He leads her through the rest of the museum pointing out several devices that once were doomsday weapons.
Who

"This is probably the second nicest museum I've been in."
Obscurejones

What would the first have been then?
Who

"My master has a marvellous museum of the toys he's grown tired of."
Obscurejones

Thokk smiles fondly and seems to reminisce.  After a moment he shakes it off.
I suppose if one kept their toys they would eventually begin to pile up.
Who

"One day I'll end up there too..."

Is that a hint of sadness I detect?
Obscurejones

He kisses her gently.
No.  No you won't.
Who

"Once he is bored with me that will be my fate. There is no stopping it."
Obscurejones

He kisses her on the forehead and pulls her close.
Don't worry.  You're mine.
Who

She holds onto him.

"Soon it won't matter at all..."

((Does he honestly think he could stop the Toy Maker? Or is he just being reassuring?))
Obscurejones

((Do you really think Kar is capable of being reassuring?))
He pushes her back and holds her at arms length.
I told you not to talk like that.
As he speaks his pupils disappear.
Who

"You can't feel it can you? Ephemeral your world shall shatter like glass."
Obscurejones

He backhands her.
Stop it.
Who

She's shifted to doll so it doesn't do much. She starts laughing.

"They shall scream and burn and die as one
Devour the nodes the end has come
The master buried much before
Comes knocking scraping at the door"
Obscurejones

He pins her to the wall and starts hitting her repeatedly until she stops.
Who

"He can smell your fear, can't you hear him? Scratching at the door, waiting to be let in..."

With that she goes limp.
Obscurejones

He almost hits her again but realizes she's finished, and pulls her close.
F-f-f-flesh...
Who

She does so, barely concious.
Obscurejones

He holds her tightly and begins to squeeze slowly.
Who

She weakly puts her arms round him, or tries to anyway.
Obscurejones

He moves to let her and whispers in her ear.
Why would you do this to me?
Who

"Do what?"
Obscurejones

He smiles at her as his claws flow into her back.
Force me to remind you.
Who

"I can't help i...."

She whimpers as the claws big into her back.
Obscurejones

You are mine.  And only mine.  I was going to let you have today for your own and you turned that against me.  He lifts her by the claws and kisses her.
You'll have to be punished.
Who

She shakes her head.

"Please no..."
Obscurejones

He shakes his head.
You should have listened.
He slams her back into the wall.
Who

"Ah!"

The Toy Maker watches, the shifter needs to understand his place in things.
Obscurejones

He shifts back into a fully human form, dropping her to the floor.  With a smile he kneels and kisses her.
Now, who's are you?
Who

Erou shifts to doll, standing up straight.

"She is mine."
Obscurejones

Kar shrinks back from the doll.
Who

"She is in your possession only long as I allow. Do you understand?"
Obscurejones

Kar nods.
What can I give you for her?
Who

"Why are you so amusingly attached to her?"
Obscurejones

Kar makes a small whining noise, like a dog who's been denied a treat.
She's mine.  I need her to be mine.
Who

"Why? Give me a good enough reason, I might even let you keep her."
Obscurejones

She...  She kisses me after I hurt her...  I need her.  Kar seems literally smaller for a moment before recovering and glaring at the Toy Maker
Who

The Toy Maker laughs.

"How wonderful pathetic. You can keep her, for now."
Obscurejones

Kar shakes his head.
No.
Who

"You don't want her? Very well."

Erou turns and starts to walk.
Obscurejones

Kar straightens up and grins.
You know damn well what I mean.  I'm tired of having a lover on lease.  If you walk out of here without making me a deal, I'll challenge you.
Who

Erou claps her hands together.

"A challenge? Wonderful!"
Obscurejones

Kar's grin falters.
My thoughts exactly.  Any thoughts on terms?
Who

"Those are yours to decide. I await your decision."

Erou changes to flesh and stumbles forward.
Obscurejones

Kar dashes forward to catch her.
Erou?
Who

"What happened?"
Obscurejones

He tries to glower but can't hide his relief.
You tried to leave me.
Who

"I'm sorry..."
Obscurejones

He hugs her close.
You should be.
Who

She shifts to doll for a split second as the Toy Maker delivers his ultimatum.

"Three days."
Obscurejones

Kar simply holds Erou close acting as though nothing happened.
Who

Having been used as a conduit twice in quick succession Erou's in no state to do anything other than weakly hold on.
Obscurejones

He carries her to their bed and sets her down gently.
Who

She just lies there, occasionally mumbling a fragment of some verse or rhyme to no one in particular.
Obscurejones

Kar pulls up a chair and waits by her side for her to wake up.
Who

"They took some honey and plenty of money.....where am I?"
Obscurejones

Karr is waiting with his knees tucked up beneath his chin.  He unfolds as he speaks.
You're in bed, resting.
Who

"Why? We were in that museum and then....I'm here."
Obscurejones

He shrugs.
You tried to leave.  I didn't let you.
Who

"I can't remember."
Obscurejones

He laughs.
Of course you don't.
Who

"What?"
Obscurejones

He brushes a little hair out of his eyes.
You've been awfully forgetful lately.
Who

"No I haven't."
Obscurejones

He laughs.
Well of course you don't remember it.
Who

She shrugs.

"If you say so...I guess."
Obscurejones

He smirks.
I bet you don't even remember when Al had you.
Who

"What!?"
Obscurejones

He smiles at her.
I said you probably forgot when Al had you.
Who

"What happened?"
Obscurejones

He asked politely.  And came bearing coin.  As long as he remembered who's you are, there didn't seem to be any harm.  He smile's brightly at her.
You're worth a whole ten gold.
Who

What little colour there is in her face drains away.

"You....why would you do that?"
Obscurejones

He leans in and kisses her.
You shouldn't have tried to leave me.  I had to remind you.
