025; I'll Come to Thee By Moonlight, Though Hell Should Bar the Way  
[Video Post]

[there is still a long crack in the middle of the LP screen, as well as dried spots of blood. there is a shot of the moonlight in the dark sky, and there is the sound of jostling water. the LP remains unmoving, a shot of the starlit sky keeping for a few seconds before finally, there is an especially loud roar of water, and the LP tips over, spots of water dripping on it. it shows a shot of the ground, on the shore line and waves wash over a corner of the LP. In the background, there is Watanuki, sitting on the part between the shore and the water, waves washing over him to up at his navel.]

[He is obviously naked, as his clothing was ripped up when he was killed in B13, but as he's sitting in the water, nothing can be seen but his upper body, and his legs poking out of the water. Watanuki is staring out at the ocean, his hair tussling in the soft breeze. The water is probably cold, but he looks as if he doesn't feel it. He remains unmoving, and finally, the LP cuts off due to the time limit]




[ooc: feel free to post as commentary (voice posts recommended so he can hear it from where he's at), or an action log 8D]

Doumeki Shizuka: bored of this businesstalldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 08:35 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[keeps rubbing at his shoulders, trying to get some warmth into him, over the towel, glancing off to the side for a moment, and then back at his face, then sighes a bit]

I know. Maybe you shouldn't be. But that's how I feel.

[ Action ]
[looks up at him. takes a deep breath, before exhaling, his eyes darting around in thought before he finally looks back up at him]

...Then... this is how I feel...

[tilts his head] ... I'm not blind. But I've been acting like I am. I can see a-all the things you've done for me... [looks off] ... Even if... for the most part I've always hated it.

...I...

[eyes lower faintly] ... I want to selfishly stay around you. But I can't be anything more than... what we are now. Whatever that is.

...But it's the same for Zero, too. I can;t keep going on how I am. It's bad. And... I just want to see everyone... happy. And see... what's for the best. What's the best though...?

[looks up at him]

...What's the best thing I can do for you...?
Doumeki Shizuka: getting too tiredtalldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 08:51 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[takes a few deep breaths, eyes sinking shut for a moment, listening to him. more affirmation of what he's known since he found out about Zero. swallows hard and nods at him, eyes still closed, before opening them and looking down at Watanuki's face]

I know. All of that. I've known.

[a little pause while he tries to work out his words, his thoughts, not really looking at Watanuki, trying to figure out how to put it in words that make sense. takes a little hitching breath for a moment, his throat choked up, then turns his golden eyes back to his face]

Remember, at home? When things would happen, and you would come and talk to me? We would sit on the steps, or the school roof, and you would explain things, I would listen. We would talk about things. We didn't...

[pauses again, trying to figure out how to word things, and takes another shaky breath]

Those times. I didn't touch you or kiss you or hold you. But we were still together. Whatever that was, whatever this is...

[another pause, because he doesn't feel like it's fine, he doesn't feel good, but he knows what he wants, so just speaks softly]

It hurts...that I can't be more to you than this. But it won't break me to be around you...don't shut me out. We're part of each other. Talk to me. Stay with me.

[leans forward and rests his forehead against Watanuki's for a moment]

Let me keep you safe.

[ Action ]
We're part of each other. Talk to me. Stay with me.

[feels his heart give off a heavy pound, his heterochromatic eyes staring up into Doumeki's eyes. there is no part of him that thinks differently]

...I thought...

[closes his eyes as Doumeki presses his forehead to his, and gently pushes back] ...I was the only one of us that felt that way... but...

[feels his heart thud again] ...I like it when you hold me. But... I can't... not with you or anyone... I don't know what I want anymore. Except... to be happy. And I don't know how long that would take. And I don't know what everyone else is going to say or do...

...Though at the moment...

[slowly buries into Doumeki's chest] ...It doesn't feel like it matters... because you're here...
Doumeki Shizuka: tired and bloodytalldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 09:07 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[shakes his head slightly at that, not enough to dislodge their foreheads pressed together like that, and takes a shaky breath, feeling...relieved. and when Watanuki cuddles into his chest like that, wraps his arms around his shoulders, to warm him up, to comfort him]

It's alright.

[speaking softly]

It's not selfish. There's too many bonds between us to break anymore, without breaking us.

[sighs a bit, and rubs his back with one big hand, trying to warm him up again]

I want you to be happy too, and I'll stay with you. I'll hold you. I won't expect anything... [a pause, and though you can't see it, a slight smirk] ...except food.

[and another pause, then]

You won't be happy if you get sick. Come out of the water. You're freezing.
Kimihiro Watanuki: shy in your shoulderghost_busser on August 23rd, 2009 09:17 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
YOU JERK!

[scowls up at him] You're going to get fat, always expecting food like that! What do you think I am?! Some kind of chef?!

[says nothing else, but runs out of the water with a few splashes in his towel, tackling right into him in a hug, trying to hold back tears of happiness]
Doumeki Shizuka: finally something good to eattalldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 09:21 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[snorts at him]

I'll be too busy chasing an idiot everywhere to get fat.

[and when he's tackle hugged like that, wraps his arms around him, squeezing hard and tight. rubs his hair at the back, and then shakes his head a bit. feeling bittersweet, but...much better]

So. Ichijou is making tea? I wonder if Kunogi made anything to eat...
Kimihiro Watanuki: angry faceghost_busser on August 23rd, 2009 09:28 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[scowls up at him, holding onto Doumeki, still in his arms] You just expect people to make stuff for you?! [shuffles a bit in his towel, shivering faintly]
Doumeki Shizuka: this is my happy facetalldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 09:29 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[starts rubbing his shoulders again, shaking his head a bit - isn't going to make Watanuki let go of him, not just yet, because it still feels too good]

I'm lending her a book. It's fair.

[tiny smirk]
Kimihiro Watanuki: bite me babyghost_busser on August 23rd, 2009 09:34 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[merely makes a face, trying to keep from scoffing, before shaking his head at Doumeki, still holding onto him and looks down at his LP at the messages Zero is sending him] ...

...We should go. Ichijou-kun is probably wondering where we're at. [runs his thumb over the crack on the screen]
Doumeki Shizuka: beautiful pensive profiletalldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 09:36 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[frowns a little, with the boy looking at his LP like that, and nods. tugging away from him after one last rub at his back. shakes any sand off the folded hakama he brought, and lifts it up, opening the front, to drape around Watanuki's shoulders, then after another moment, one hand still on the front of his clothes, the other gesturing at the LP]

Zero?
Kimihiro Watanuki: pained in yukataghost_busser on August 23rd, 2009 09:42 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
Unfortunately. [tugs the hakama around him, before glancing at the screen and shaking his head] ... I... I'm done arguing with him. if he wants to be stubborn... then he can be stubborn. I won't push anymore.

[clutches the LP a little in his hand, a small cracking sound forming]

...I can't take being at odds with everyone anymore.

[ Action ]
[nods at him, and sighs]

Good. Don't let your happiness revolve around one person. I'm starting to learn that.

[helps Watanuki feed his arms through the sleeves of his hakama, and cinches it up at his waist, with the belt, trying to make it fit him better]

Let's go?

[ Action ]
[is still drowning in it, but, it works. glances at his LP, then blinks a little in shock, before nodding at Doumeki]

...Zero said he's... going over to Ichijou's place. [sighs faintly, not too sure what to think about that, before nodding at Doumeki]

...Yeah. You're right. Not around one person. Around many...

[slowly reaches down, taking Doumeki's index finger with two of his own, holding it]

...Is this okay?
Doumeki Shizuka: what you say?!talldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 09:59 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[blinks a little at that, and sighs, because he doesn't know if he could deal with something like love confessions or whatever from Zero right now, but nods a bit]

I see. He's coming right now?

[a pause as the boy grabs at his finger like that, and curls his own around it in return]

It's fine.
Kimihiro Watanuki: calming glanceghost_busser on August 23rd, 2009 10:03 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
I think so. [squeezes his fingers around Doumeki's own, thinking about the little moment between Doumeki and Ichijou]

...Okay. Lets go then.
Doumeki Shizuka: glasses are seductivetalldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 10:07 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[curls his own fingers around, a little, starting toward Ichijou and Kunogi's place, the towel looped over his arm. hopes Kunogi has some sake, because if Zero's there, he might need it]

Are you alright with seeing him?
Kimihiro Watanuki: profile seriousghost_busser on August 23rd, 2009 10:13 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[walks with him, fingers curled securely around the other, not wanting to let go. lets out a sigh, his thoughts calm and smooth]

Yeah. I'll be fine. [looks over at Doumeki] My resolve is stronger than you'd think... [faint smile]
Doumeki Shizuka: beautiful pensive profiletalldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 10:16 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[gives a nod, and then glances over, raising a brow]

Oh? I think you're stubborn.

But not as stubborn as me.

[tiny smirk again, his finger curled around Watanuki's as they walk, and not ready to let go either. because things feel better, he feels a little more secure that Watanuki isn't going to evict him from his life. he hasn't lost him]
Kimihiro Watanuki: huffy little housewifeghost_busser on August 23rd, 2009 10:19 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[Doumeki never would. Watanuki, however, wonders a little if that works both ways]

Hmph. Who'd want to be ANYTHING like you? Not me! Not at all! [shakes his head, talking "down" at him, even though his fingers are still securely holding Doumeki's. soon, he slides them down, until he manages to slip his whole hand in Doumeki's]
Doumeki Shizuka: feeling a little slytalldarknsnarky on August 23rd, 2009 10:28 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
[the bonds they share are too great to be broken, at least in Doumeki's mind]

Of course not. Who would I be amused by if you weren't around being an idiot?

[closes his hand around Watanuki's and threads their fingers together - a connection. leading him towards Ichijou's place, where onigiri and tea and maybe sake are waiting]
Kimihiro Watanuki: worried blushghost_busser on August 23rd, 2009 10:42 am (UTC)
[ Action ]
Shut up.

[leans into his arm as Doumeki laces their fingers together. wants to say more, but right now... what they've said... it should be enough. for now.]
