Thokk's Lands XVIII

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 Nadine and her kids.

Nadine and Elyea live here.  They're rather sweet.

Somewhere around here Dei and Jeska live in sin with a teenager.  Good for them. Not anymore they don't! She buggered off.

----

He looks up from his work, puzzled.

"I'm sorry what?"
Obscurejones

You're barely using the body.  you probably don't need to worry about it even noticing it's decanted, much less that there's a new mind in it.
Who

"Splendid. I can leave then?"
Obscurejones

She makes a shooing gesture.
Who

Off he toddles then, he might turn up again at some point. We'll see.
Obscurejones

She shrugs and goes looking for her wascally wabbit.
Who

He's chewing on the end of a carrot and peering down the neck of a bottle.
Obscurejones

Drinking is bad for you dearie.
She refrains from carrot comments.
Who

He looks up at her, smiling happily.

"Pfft, so was having my brain all squished but here we are."
Obscurejones

She sits next to him, trying to be close but not too close.
Who

He smiles at her, sliding a drink down to her.

"So what happened to him?"
Obscurejones

I got rid of him.  Nonviolently.
Who

"Awww, you're the best."

He leans towards her and tries to hug her.
Obscurejones

She hugs back.  Tries not to cop a feel.
Who

Rabbit does much the same, resting his head on her shoulder.
Obscurejones

She rests her head on his head in turn.
Who

Rabbit's quite happy to stay like that for a while.

"Think he'll come back? I don't want him in my head again."
Obscurejones

He won't.  I won't let him.
Who

He hugs her a little tighter.

"Thank you. I don't want to go..."
Obscurejones

She nods and holds him close.
Who

He smiles, turning in to a small pink rabbit hugging her shoulder. That may or may not have been intentional.
Obscurejones

She laughs and gently tries to ruffle his ears.
Who

The pink bunny falls forward in response, nestling himself in the space between her neck and her shoulder.
Obscurejones

She settles for just patting it on the head.
Who

The pink plush toy seems quite happy to stay in the crook of her neck for the time being. Apparently Nadine's quite comfortable.
Obscurejones

She tries to get to her feet without dislodging her little drunk rabbit.
Who

She'll be entirely successful, Rabbit clinging on to her shoulder as she moves.
Obscurejones

She heads for his room and tries to gently peel him off.
Who

He's quite resolute in clinging on it would seem. Refusing to let go.
Obscurejones

She sighs and lies down on his bed.  Starts to fall asleep.
Who

At some point in the night Rabbit'll shift back to being people and Nadine'll awake to being cuddled by a pink haired young man.
Obscurejones

Clothed?
Who

Yep, otherwise that'd be real awkward.
Obscurejones

Oh yeah, it's not awkward now.  Not at all.
Who

It's slighty less awkward than if he didn't have any clothes on and anyway, it's not awkward for Rabbit, he's asleep.
Obscurejones

She sighs softly and tries to get back to sleep.  Let him deal with it.
Who

Assuming she does fall back asleep Rabbit wakes up a while later and flinches, this can not be good...a the quick realisation that he's not injured however leads him to believe that he's not in any immediate Nadine based danger and so just kind of stays where he is, assuming this was somehow her idea and besides he is comfortable.
Obscurejones

She yawns awake after a few hours.  Kisses the tip of his nose.
Who

He smiles involuntarily and slowly opens his eyes, not entirely sure where he is.

"Huh?"

((Deadtime))
Obscurejones

Feeling better?  Or at least less drunk?
Who

He nods a little.

"Wait...where are we?"
Obscurejones

Your room.  You were small and pink and rather attached to my shoulder.  So I slept here.
Who

"Oh, sleep alright?"
Obscurejones

Woke up when you got mannish again.  Other than that, slept fine.
Who

"Right, we should probably get up shouldn't we? Before someone else comes  in."
Obscurejones

It's your room.  Are you feeling okay?
Who

"I'm fine, why wouldn't I be?"
Obscurejones

She frowns at him and checks his mind again.
Who

He's fine, just a little befuddled that Nadine's in his bed, doesn't seem as bothered about it as he should be.
Obscurejones

She tries to kiss him, while reading his thoughts.  She ought to get a t-shirt that says "Telepaths cheat at everything"
Who

How much of a nerd am I if I get that printed?

His thoughts are pretty much 'oh blimey she's kissing me, she's good at this', it goes without saying that he kisses her back.
Obscurejones

Awesomely nerdy.

She pull back and smiles at him.
Who

He smiles back at her, reaching out to take hold of one of her hands.

"Hungry?"
Obscurejones

She nods slightly.
Who

He tries to get up, if he's successful he'll head for the door.

"Back in a minute."
Obscurejones

She doesn't stop him but does keep an eye on his thoughts.
Who

'Gonna go get something to eat, bring some back for Nadine, hope she doesn't find the carrots down the side of the bed. I'll never hear the end of it.'
Obscurejones

Nadine grabs a carrot and waits till he's on the return trip to start nibbling.
Who

So she's going to be eating it when he comes in? He stops dead in the doorway.

"That's not what it looks like."
Obscurejones

It looks like you are fond enough of carrots to hide them in your bed.
Who

"Well that's not what it is at all."

Rabbit thinks fast, trying to shift the topic of conversation.

"I er, brought you a sandwich."
Obscurejones

I already have a carrot.
Who

"Right...well, I'll just leave it here then."

He places the sandwich next to her, moving to sit on the other end of the bed.
Obscurejones

She laughs and grabs the sandwich.  Noms.
Who

It's not a bad sandwich, even if it is a little thick.
Obscurejones

Nom nom nom.  And back to carrot noms.
Who

Once she goes back to the carrots he turns to look in her direction, but not actually at her.

"Pass me one of those?"
Obscurejones

She smiles brightly and hands him a carrot.
Who

"Thanks..."

He tentatively nibbles on the carrot, pondering what to do about the Nadine in his bed.
Obscurejones

... Well I'm sure he'll think of something.
Who

Indeed he does, it takes him until he's finished that carrot but he does. Putting his plan dynamically in to action he turns to face her!

"You getting up any time soon?"

Genius.
Obscurejones

She looks at him for a moment.  Tries to gauge if he's being serious.  Debates, but only for a second, beating him within an inch of his life.
Who

He's pretty serious, he seriously wants to know if she'll be getting up soon.

"Well?"
Obscurejones

She gets up and storms out of the room, which gets a few feet smaller when she leaves.
Who

Rabbit gets up to try and pursue her, honestly at a loss for what he's done. All he wanted to do was know if he was going to be able to take a shower or not.

"Nadine wait!"
Obscurejones

Walls slam into place in front of him cutting him off from her.
Who

He's stymied, slamming his hand against a wall.

"Oh come on! You're always on her side!"
Obscurejones

To be fair it is her castle.
Who

"Last time I dust the cobwebs in the library!"

Rabbit does some storming of his own, back to his room.
Obscurejones

When he threatens them, the walls slide open.
Who

They do? Awesome, he begins his Nadine hunt again.

"Nadine!?"
Obscurejones

She's in her room you dork of a rabbit.
Who

He grumbles, he doesn't even get any respect from the masonry and heads back to his room.
Obscurejones

Hey, Rabbit can see the fourth wall too!  Hi Rabbit.
Who

If he can observe the fourth wall he ignores it, knocking politely on Nadine's door.

"Nadine?"
Obscurejones

There's no response.
Who

"Um, hello?"

He knocks again, if he gets no response this time he'll try and see if the door's open.
Obscurejones

It's locked.  If he's listening carefully he might hear some sniffling.
Who

"Are you crying? Please just tell me what's wrong."
Obscurejones

She slowly opens the door.  Wipes her eyes on the back of her sleeve.
You never said thank you.
Who

He's fairly sure that's not a thing people cry about, he tries to hug her.

"I'm sorry. Thank you."
Obscurejones

She saved his life, he didn't thank her or even acknowledge her, got drunk, and then tried to kick her out of his room.  Bad Rabbit.
She pushes him back, with a fair deal of force.
Who

Back he goes then seeing as how Nadine is a good deal stronger, he does manage to stop himself falling over though.

"So you're ticked at me?"
Obscurejones

No duh.
You're an ass.  Leave.
Who

"Okay, just tell me what I really did. If I didn't say sorry you'd have just throat chopped me or something. I heard you crying."
Obscurejones

Go away!
Yeah, that's going to give him at least a splitting headache.
Who

He stumbles back, clutching his head.

"Ouch! Fine...but for what it's worth, whatever I actually did I'm sorry."

And off he goes, throughrily confused.
Obscurejones

She goes back to crying and hitting things.
Who

Why can't they just talk their problems  out like normal folk?
Obscurejones

Normal people talk things out?
