IC: Soraya [The Chiisai Ryuu]

 

...Crud.  Ayiwah was for all intents and purposes a stranger, but Soraya knew she was good at her job - which meant the moment she saw Soraya, she'd know she wasn't supposed to be there - and there was practically no chance she'd drop the commodore face long enough for Soraya to actually get a read on what the tone of this expedition was going to be like before she tossed Soraya back onto dry land.  Possibly in shackles.

And in the end,
Ayiwah wasn't connected to Yumi the same way Hana was.  Honestly? She could probably count on Ayiwah to keep things pretty sane, if her reputation was to be believed.  But Hana was a wild card, and if Ayiwah was a good soldier, she might stick to Hana's word if it came down to it.  Yumi to Hana to Ayiwah.  Okay, on reflection that sounded like a pretty good buffer between "Worryingly Oblivious Regency" and "A Possibly Non-Crazy Island", but-

I gotta know for myself.

She sighed.  "I appreciate it, but - look, truth be told, what I really needed was to talk to
Yu- to the Rora, and if she's not here, then the next best person who knows her.  It's kind of a long story."  She was on thin ice now, but if she had any shot at avoiding having to talk her way past the Commodore of the fleet, she was going to take it.

I shrugged.  "Well it got your attention, didn't it?  Besides, I don't usually bother with courtesy; people just find other ways to show themselves out of my company.  As for me--"

 

I took a good look at him.  Up at him.  He was tall, regal, and fierce--if not exactly handsome in the conventional sense.  Exactly the type of person who ignores me on a regular basis, exactly the type who I would hate.  But I had put two and two together in the hours after the party.  Even after the Rora's death, everybody had finally become bored with the endless speculating, and conversation had turned to other things.  Now that I knew, I could see the tension in his jaw and the pain in is eyes.  I didn't dare extend my willhammer sense, but I could tell that there was something building and roiling under that stoic exterior.  Herupa Jiyu was interesting, and quite probably dangerous.  I would have be careful.  I don't do careful.

 

"I'm Plangori Shuuan.  My clan was responsible for most of the colorful garb you saw a few nights ago.  I sought you out because--I--I" and here the memory of the pain caused my voice to tremble, but I went on.  I'm not someone to hide my weakness, especially when that weakness is actually having feelings.  "--I--know someone hurt you.  And I'm curious.  That--how someone like you could get hurt by anyone."

 

It had sounded better in my head.

"And why should I tell you that?" Jiyu asked, his full attention now captivated by this plangori.

"Why should I presume that you would actually care about my problems, and that your not trying to find some sort of 'chink in my armor'?"

He expected me to be offended, to back off or offer excuses, maybe.  But I'm not that kind of person.

 

"You're right, you have no insurance I'm not trying to break you apart and play you like everyone else on this island.  You'll just have to trust me."

I stared right back at him, sensing the incredulity in his gaze.

"Look, I'm a short, ugly third daughter of backwater clan, and most of the court servants wouldn't give me the time of day.  I don't fancy trying to work myself into their favor, or the Fursics either.  Same bird, different color.  I've been called a lot of things, Herupa Jiyu, most of them not flattering, but deceptive is not one of them."

The giant dasaka looked almost stunned.

That is, before he recovered and leaned over slightly to whisper to her, "your words ring true... Then know that the pain that is felt by your body is temporary... But there is no worse pain than the one being who created you, hurting you. Not in the body..."

He geustured to his chest before continuing, "but instead, in the heart."

His displeasure was easily noticible. His words had a sharp edge to them, and his deep voice began to grow raspy, as if his teeth were knives, and his tounge and lips were made of stone. His body seemed to heat the nearby air as well, as he left the books he held on an empty part of the shelves. The shelf itself began to creak and crack as the giant held onto one of its posts, the sound adding an unnerving edge to his words.

In other words, he was ###### at the memories.

The Eiyu kept herself away from the others, still somewhat alienated from her fellow crewmembers. She pondered her own weaknesses, the least among them not that her Twin was far from her. She would likely grow duller in her abilities as a Soulsword, but she would be able to study and review Dasaka lore in the hopes that the citizens of the Other Island would listen and tell her stories of their own.


OOC: Rano open for interaction on the Chiisai Ryuu.

IC: (Hanako)

 

Later in the day, after my lunch with Desde I had come to the Little Dragon. I needed to make sure that Desde and Yumi were okay, I had been so focused on Yumi though, I had forgotten her sister and the stresses that were placed upon her. Not only did I feel guilty, there were times I felt closer, more understood by Desdemona than Yumi could ever hope to know. As much as Yumi told me to speak freely, there were so many times it was clear that she just wanted me as something to bounce her opinions and ideas off of. She's my best friend, but she can be abrasive and recent issues had not helped Yumi's attitude, position of Rora, her mother's death. It was all too much for both sisters and I did my best I could for both of them. The trip was still on. This time however, Yumi wasn't joining me, and Desde wasn't going in her place. Both sisters would remain in Kentoku and that was for the best, in the current climate our travels to Mata Nui could put some issues to rest, such as the location of the Chaotic Six (hopefully). The luggage I had brought wasn't too much, I had my normal type of dress, the red robes and leggings I had normally worn around. My hood was drawn back however as I gathered the packs, one of the servants had aided me and I thanked her, she looked surprised. As I thought over it, while I wasn't royalty like the Umbralines, the Herupa were prominent enough and the company we normally kept looked down on servants like this woman. I frowned internally, for this woman was polite, friendly and helpful. She seemed like a nice person and yet many a Menti would look at her, seeing only a Saihoko, and saying that word with such revulsion. I tried not to think of it, but it remained there nagging at my mind.

 

As I approached the ship I spoke aloud to those standing at the gangplank.

 

"Hello! It is I, Hanako Herupa. I wish to apologize to you all and the Commodore for my tardiness. I had wished to make sure things would go well, and servants attending the Rora and her sister knew everything they needed to handle while I am away. I want to apologize to the Commodore in person, for I should have sent a message ahead to alert you to this. Could I speak to her, if she's available?"

Tazera was about to answer the Plangori, but she stayed her tongue: the lieutenant had heard a voice faintly echoing into the submersible from the open hatch. She didn't recognise the speaker, but she could make out the words - and she smiled down at Soraya.

 

"It sounds to me as though Mother Zuto's luck shines on you for once, Plangori Soraya," she said. She gestured in the direction of the hatch. "Go on. I need to inform the Commodore."

"HANAKO YOU STAY RIGHT THERE."

 

Desde had clearly exerted herself to keep up with the Herupa before she managed to slip away into the sub - no doubt that as younger daughter of the recently departed Rora (this didn't make her chojo, did it? Please no no no) she could have weaseled her way in based off of name recognition but she was not fond of the idea of abusing her mother's blood for something so trivial as herself and she understood the Commodore well enough to know that she wanted an early departure. So she stopped - skidded, almost - to a halt in front of Hanako, knees week, breathing deeply, and searching for something to say.

 

"I just wanted to say..." The little princess' mouth opened further and then closed once, and then again, like she was still gasping for air. "Uhm...wanted to say...just...just enjoy Mata Nui, okay? I get that it's a royal expedition and all but...if you can...it's so interesting, isn't it? So have fun if you can, and uhm...oh! And don't let any jungle boys steal off with you! If Yumi found out I sent you on this expedition so that you could end up living like a tajaar she would cut my head off. So...err...yes...guess that's about everything--"

 

She broke off suddenly, as though she was startled out of her rant, and after a second of indecision her thin arms wrapped around Hanako's neck in a tight grip.

 

"I'm gonna miss you," Desde confessed to Hana's collar, her voice muffled. "Tell the Commodore I said hiya."

OOC: Writing from the Hotel while at Brickfair, so this is a bit shorter than usual.

 

IC:

 

Ayiwah watched Nihi being escorted to mess area. With that situation contained for the moment, she turned around, walking towards the berthing cabin. She did not spend much time there though and merely stuck her head through the passage, looking at Rano. "Do not think your late arrival went by unnoticed. Congratulations on volunteering for the first late watch shift tonight."

 

And with that, she was back on her way to the bridge, to await Hanako's arrival - which, with good timing, happened before she had even set foot on the bridge itself. She heard voices from the level above and after ascending the ladder, she quickly found Tazera who was heading in her direction already.

 

"Hanako?" Ayiwah asked. Tazera just nodded. The commodore smiled in return. "Looks like we might leave on time after all." she said with a wink, just loud enough for the first mate to hear."

 

Together they made their way back up to the main-hatch, to great the leader of the royal envoy.

 

"Herupa Hanako," Ayiwah greeted her with a respectful bow of the head, "welcome aboard the Chiisai Ryuu. We can depart as soon as you are settled in."

IC: Soraya [The Chiisai Ryuu]

 

"It sounds to me as though Mother Zuto's luck shines on you for once, Plangori Soraya,"

 

Soraya managed not to let out the kind of breath that says "I thought I was screwed and thus unintentionally holding my breath until the immediate danger passed."  No kidding.  She smiled and nodded at the Dasaka as she turned to leave.  Hanako was at the gangplank - that was good.  She'd just nip over there, flag her down, get a read on if this trip was going to turn into a disaster, make her case if it looked that way, and in the event that went belly-up get off the ship before anyone could actually press charges.  Easy as could be.

 

 

 

Why in the name of Zataka's left buttcheek would you lay a ship out like this? she thought to herself as she climbed what felt like the tenth ladder since Tazeka had left her.  She wasn't sure exactly how she'd managed to get turned around while tracing her exact steps back, but hey, the universe never let things be that easy, right?

 

There was the murmur of voices up ahead.  Okay, good, good, here we go.  She turned the corner, and - yeNO NO NO NO NO

 

Hanako was directly in front of her.  Unfortunately, Tazera and the Commodore were more directly in front of her, looking out over the gangplank.  Hanako was also dealing with what looked like a very mid-hug Desde, who was probably going to look up in the next two seconds and see a very-not-supposed-to-be-on-board Dashi standing behind two would-very-gladly-throw-off-very-not-supposed-to-be-on-board-Dashi Dasaka.

 

"Herupa Hanako, welcome aboard the Chiisai Ryuu. We can depart as soon as you are settled in."
