Thokk's Lands

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

Emerging from his portal Edward grins.  
That went substantially better than we could have hoped.  He holds out Jeska's necklace.
I take it we have someone prepared?  Al nods and signals to two guards at the side of the room.  They drag a young woman kicking and screaming into the middle of the room.
Rather roughly she is strapped to an operating table that has been made ready.  When her legs and arms are tightly bound to the table, Edward walks over and puts the necklace on her.
And now we play the waiting game.
Metakirb

She looks about, trying to move.
Obscurejones

My apologies.  You've been restrained for your own protection.
Metakirb

Let me go!
Obscurejones

Edward smirks.
No.
Metakirb

More struggling.
Obscurejones

Edward reaches into his coat and pulls out a scalpel.  He calmly holds it in Jeska's view.
Stop struggling.
Metakirb

A Scalpel Isn't likely to calm her down, infact, she starts Struggling harder.
Who

With a sound like an old music box what appears to be a large doll appears outside the room, standing stock still.

Obscurejones

Al sends a snake of fire to entwine the doll.
Coming into my house.  Ain't that a bitch.
------
Edward sighs.
You're not going to get unbound by annoying me.  You're going to get out by talking.  I'll start.  Erou.
Metakirb

What about her?
Who

The doll doesn't move, the fire doesn't seem to do anything either.
Obscurejones

Al walks over and forms an anvil of force over the doll.
Wakey, wakey.
Who

"My Master bids I enter your service."
Obscurejones

Heh.  I bet he does.  Go to the north tower.  I'll send someone to show you around.

----
She hurt you.
Who

Erou does as instructed.
Metakirb

yes.
Obscurejones

But not nearly as badly as you reacted.  When you revived you showed a distrust of Lennos.  Explain.
Metakirb

He shouldn't Exist here! This isn't his side!
Obscurejones

His tone is sarcastic.
Oh thank you.  That clears it up wonderfully.

-----
A servant arrive and begins to give Erou a tour of the castle.
Metakirb

This isn't his dimension. Not his side! He shouldn't exist on this plain!
Obscurejones

Explain.

-----
The castle appears to be much, much, much larger on the inside than the out.  It goes on for miles in any direction and contains, gyms, lavish palaces, gardens almost anything you could think of.
Metakirb

We're the same person from the same story but from differant endings. I'm from this ending, he's from another! He shouldn't be here.
Who

Erou stays silent throughout the tour.
Obscurejones

And yet he seems to be here primarily because of you.

-----
At some point Kar starts walking beside Erou.  After a few minutes he backhands and kills the guide.
And who are you?
Who

"My name is Erou."
Obscurejones

He glances over her body approvingly.
And what do you do Erou?
Metakirb

He shouldn't be here though.
Obscurejones

You are wonderfully obtuse, aren't you?
Metakirb

There's nothing else to it! He shouldn't be here!
Obscurejones

Then why attack Elyea?
Who

The body made of cracked porcelain?

"My Master bids I enter your service. It amuses him."
Obscurejones

Yep.
He arches an eyebrow.
Our service?
Metakirb

I didn't want to hurt her...
Obscurejones

Yet you almost did.  You put her in danger.  Willingly there so.
Who

"Those are my orders."

She hasn't been told to act normal yet, so any and all innuendos are going to go right over her head.
Metakirb

I didn't want to...
Obscurejones

He runs a hand over her, stretching  his fingers.
We'll have to fix you.  And there's no reason to be such a cold fish.
Who

"Do you wish me to be more human?"
Obscurejones

He leans in and whispers.
We'll just have to see.
Who

Well that wasn't a yes or a no, so she stays as is for now.
Metakirb

What're you going to do with me now?
Obscurejones

He unbinds the strap that holds her arms.
You live here for now.  When a solution to your problem is found you can see Elyea again.

------
Kar takes Erou by the hand and skips down the hall taking her to the kiln.  When they arrive he instructs the workers.
This is my newest girl.  She needs to be fixed.  You get two hours.  Then we start doing this by elimination rounds.
The workers scramble to repair Erou.
Who

Well she's easy to fix, what with being regular porcelin and all. She stands motionless throughout it. Also Kar is creepy!
Metakirb

My problem? And what's My problem?
Obscurejones

Really?  Wink
Kar watches with schoolboy glee.  He has them expand the bust and rear slightly.

----
You are not ready to deal with what your life has become.
Who

She doesn't react to that either. And yes, very much so.
Obscurejones

When she's finished he runs a claw over the porcelain.
Can you be flesh?
Metakirb

My life has been Complicated since the start, do you even understand what i am? What i've been through since Chimera?
Obscurejones

That will need to be explained as well.
Who

"Yes."

Her skin slowly changes from porcelain to flesh, retaining the alterations.
Obscurejones

He runs a claw lightly over the flesh lingering on the alterations.
Who

Her body shudders slightly, I say her body, because her face still looks like it was painted on.
Obscurejones

And the face.
Metakirb

A Demon. That's what i am.
Obscurejones

Edward looks her over.
Actually at the moment you are a farm girl.
Metakirb

She holds up the necklace.

No matter my body, this is me. Trapped in this.
Who

And it is so.
Obscurejones

Edward smirks.
How abominable.

-----
Kar runs the claw over her cheek taking care to draw blood.
I think you and me will be good friends.
Metakirb

So what? I just wander around here until you decide you want to examine me?
Who

She doesn't really react to the cut, it's not really enough to hurt her.

"Oh, well I'd like that."

She grins at him.
Obscurejones

You can find quarters to your liking.  A chef has been assigned to you.  I will find you when we will speak again.
He walks down an adjacent hallway.
----
Kar smiles as he leans in and whispers in her ear.
Human enough to hurt.
Metakirb

And Jeska starts loking around
Obscurejones

The castle is particularly spacious.  Just about any sort of accommodation can be found.  Each room has a speaker on the wall labeled kitchen.
Who

"I am, it's not my fault you scratch like a girl."
Metakirb

After looking about for a while she find a room She likes and walks inside.
Obscurejones

Kar grins wildly and slashes across Erou's stomach.
Better?

------
Rooms details are up to the occupant.
Who

She screams in pain.

"See, now you're getting the hang of it."
Obscurejones

He pulls her roughly into the nearest room.  He hits the speaker on the wall.
Send me my usual.
Who

"Look what you did to my dress."

I think, it might have been removed when she was getting fixed, the specifics were vague. If indeed it was she says something else.

"So what exactly do you do around here?"
Obscurejones

He winces.
I try desperately to entertain myself.
He walks slowly around behind her and whips a claw across her back.
Metakirb

Jeska had picked out a medium sized room, and walks over to the bed, sitting down on it.
Obscurejones

After a while a servant arrives with a covered platter for Kar.

-------
Nothing extraordinary happens.
Metakirb

She lies back, thinking.
Obscurejones

Edward's giving her time to think.  Servants pass by every few minutes but no one enters without her request.
Who

"Ah! Seems to me what you need is a scratching post."
Metakirb

For now she just ignores them.

Elyea... I'm sorry.
Obscurejones

Kar walks over to the the platter and lifts off the cover.  There's garlic, a lemon, salt, and a thin knife.  He starts humming to himself as he walks.  By the time he gets to the platter he's singing softly.
It's not easy having yourself a good time
Greasing up those bets and betters
Watching out they don't four-letter
Fuck and kiss you both at the same time
Smells-like something I've forgotten
Curled up died and now it's rotten

I'm not a gangster tonight
Don't want to be a bad guy
I'm just a loner baby
And now you're gotten in my way

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

It's a bitch convincing people to like you
If I stop now call me a quitter
If lies were cats you'd be a litter
Pleasing everyone isn't like you
Dancing jigs until I'm crippled
Slug ten drinks I won't get pickled

I've got to hand it to you
You've played by all the same rules
It takes the truth to fool me
And now you've made me angry

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

Oh I could throw you in the lake
Or feed you poisoned birthday cake
I wont deny I'm gonna miss you when you're gone
Oh I could bury you alive
But you might crawl out with a knife
And kill me when I'm sleeping
That's why

I can't decide
Whether you should live or die
Oh, you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

As he sings he makes small cut's across her body,nothing deep enough to bleed her out.  When the cuts are made he starts adding the salt and lemon juice.
Who

And after about the first three instances of that she yells incoherently and tries to punch him.
Obscurejones

He moves to the side and catches the fist.
Problem?
Who

"What the hell do you think your doing!? And where's my dress!?"
Obscurejones

He gets excited.
Now that's new.  And what do you call yourself?
Who

"You know what my name is you moron!"
Obscurejones

A little indignation's good for the soul.
He pulls her close and kisses her hard.
We're going to have so much fun.
Who

As he kisses her she bites him, hard.

"I was sent here to serve under your leader, not act as your scratching post."
Obscurejones

He pulls back and wipes some blood of his mouth, smiling.
So I have to get permission to get a new toy?
Who

She ignores the question.

"Where can I get some clothes?"
Obscurejones

He points to a dresser at the side of the room.
Who

She has a look in it, she's pretty sure what she'll find though.
Obscurejones

A large collection of ladies garments ranging from Victorian level modest to "Hellllllllooooo Nurse!"?
Who

Not what she was expecting, has she misjudged Kar? She picks something somewhere in the middle, leaning more towards modesty for now.

"Where is the boss anyway?"
Obscurejones

He grins.
Thought you'd go a bit more towards the left.
Who

"Don't want anyone getting the wrong impression do we?"
Obscurejones

He grins.
I don't think they could.
Who

"Good. Now where is your leader?"
Obscurejones

He points to the door.
Probably sitting on a throne, bored out of his skull.
Who

"Thank you."

She sets off to find him.
Obscurejones

As she makes it to the door he snakes out a claw and disrobes her.
Who

"Very mature...."

She attempts to reenter the room, though she suspects it'll be locked or something.
