He didn't know why she was suddenly interrogating him with all of these questions. Did she need to know what he did in his past? Wasn't all of that personal? Why did she need to know if he got along with April or not. Maybe she just wanted to know what kind of women he dated? He wasn't really sure, but he just told her honestly how he felt at that moment. When they finished, he walked alongside her outside towards downtown so that he could show her the streets.
WHen they approached the center of the city, Soren walked with her, his hand holding onto hers tightly as he showed her the area. The cars flying through the air had their own lanes in the sky, while the roads below were lit up beneath the floor. They approached the fountains and waterfalls, seeing the colors everywhere as he point them out to her, showing her all of the people gathered. There were small shops, restaurants, and even people outside having small little shows.
SOren bought her a light pen and then he gave it to her as he took hold of his own. He drew on her shirt, seeing the light shaped heart on her shirt and smiling. [b "See? You can pretty much draw anywhere here with these pens. The light slowly fades though over time"] he told her, seeing the name she wrote.
Soren smiled and then he saw her drawing around anywhere she could, having so much fun. He walked over to her and then he held her hand [b "Check this out"] he drew on the waterfall, seeing the light stay for a short while. He drew a small robot and then he also drew a small cupcake on the fountain water.
He could hear the sounds of people playing music in the background with their electronic keyboards and sounds. Lights filled the street from the surrounding buildings, making the entire street fill with life.
[b "It's not really magic, it's just light and the Avalon technology"]
Aether nodded, brushing her hair back. He said nothing more so she left it. Why was she making any of this a big deal? It was better when she treated him as a friend, instead of feeling all this and wondering what he was like and if he actually liked her, or what would help to make him like her. It was better to let this go. Yet...she still was trying to push herself to be a bit forward and take hold of his hand. [b [#00cca3 "What can be more than city lights? That's already blinding." ]] She followed him through downtown. This place really was lit up. It was kind of amazing, but it made her eyes widen when she saw the flying ships.
They reached a fountain, lit up, and light covering the street. There was so much light! She's never seen so much all in one place. She looked down at the ground and she stared down at her own clothes. Damn. [b [#00cca3 "I think this is too much light." ]] It was kind of freaking her out. And she thought a magical glowing fountain was incredible sorcery.
[b [#00cca3 "Definitely filled with a lot of color. They do? Because of the light?" ]] She followed him into a shop and Soren gave her this small device. She played with in her hand wondering what it was. [b [#00cca3 "A light pen...do you mean a flash..." ]] He lost her when he said write with it. [b [#00cca3 "On the water!?" ]] How was that possible [b [#00cca3 "Can you draw in air?" ]] She had to wonder. She really didn't get it though. She watched him turn it on and curiously watched as he drew owner shirt, and it glowed. A smiley face? It really worked. She searched for the button and it clicked. What would she draw anyway?
She decided to draw on his shirt back-and wrote her name and then laughed, [b [#00cca3 "Now everyone will know you know me." ]] She then started to drown on the ground, cat ears, she'd draw a sun. This was fun. She was really enjoying this. [b [#00cca3 "This magic is really cool. She wondered. She tried it on her wrist and did a simple crown, wondering if it would take.
April has spent some nights with Soren. Nights that included dragging him along to the bars, staying at his house to play games, attempting to seduce him, but it didn't really work at all. He only spent time with her because it was lonely being by himself. They never really did anything more than kiss and touch.
He finished his piece of the cake, but when Aether returned to his side he met her with his teal eyes, wondering where she went and what happened. His eyes moved to her and then he answered her questions, hearing her mention April. [b "Huh? April?"] he looked around. Was she talking to her?
He ended up pushing it aside and then he walked with her outside, seeing the city lights. Soren felt her hand holding his and then he shook his head. [b "Well both! But more than city lights"] he smiled and then he walked with her downtown, seeing all the neon signs, the lit up streets, the ships flying by and the motorcyclists zooming through the lit up roads.
He liked how warm her hand was in his as he walked with her towards the fountains. They reached the center of the city and there were large fountains surrounding the area. There were lit up waterfalls, a light show filling the streets and even water shooting out of fountains with colored lights. The floor was lit up in colored lights, area covered in black light so their clothes lit up.
Soren walked with her through the park [b "This place is filled with so much color. Everyone likes to hang out here"] he walked towards one of the shops and then he bought two small devices. He gave her one. [b "This is kind of like a light pen. You can write or draw anything around here. On the floor, on the water. It stays for about half an hour before disappearing"] he told her, turning his on as he clicked on the button. He twisted the bottom of the pen and it changed the lights color. He looked at her shirt and then he made a smiley face. IT stayed on her shirt and he smiled [b "See! Give it a try"]
Aether wasn't sure if she could take this girl's word for the entire truth but it was a start. She didn't know if Soren was different when he wasn't around her. Did it matter? She thought what they valued mattered but if he was the only one like her than naturally she at the very least wanted to stay with someone just like her. She listened onto April answering her about what in the world she meant feisty. She figured not listening and teasing would be annoying. Although... when it came to others that wasn't Soren she done that in multiple occasions but then again she wasn't doing it because she liked them most of the time. Was she lying?
The more she heard April talk the more she sounded like she was trying to convince herself that they had a lot of fun. Aether wasn't an idiot. She raised a brow, because it sounded like a lie [b Is that so? I bet I've done more with him.] She shrugged unless... Soren was secretly a man who slept around. Aether sighed [b We'll get along even if not he's got no choice." ] Her hard work wasn't going to be thrown away.
She sat down beside Soren and felt a bit embarrassed of all the things she asked and wondering if April was even a good source. Halfway down the line she wasn't sure how creditable she was. She put a bit of cake in her mouth after she asked such a dumb question. Wait what he did!? Well shit. [b April said you did." ] Aether stated seeing that some truth did come out of it. She just wondered what the circumstances were.
Ohh at least the cake was really good. She could keep eating and eating it all day. Soren payed before she even realized it. Aether nodded and got up, [b yes let's go.] When they went out it was getting darker. [b By city lights you don't mean building lights do you?] She did think it looked pretty. [i Don't be weird Aeth.] Maybe she should tease him-no. She couldn't even think of anything. The streets were getting more crowded and realized it would suck to lose him in the crows. She took a hold of his hand [b "Lead the way my knightly tour guide." ] Ah that was such a lame thing to say. Why was it that being around him made her say such stupid things?
Soren was sitting at the table, just waiting for the dessert. He didn't really know what Aether was up to, but she was disappearing a lot. He held his breath and then he looked around, feeling a little lonely as he sat at the table. He was used to eating alone, but when he did eat alone, he didn't really come out if he was just going to be by himself.
He ate the cake, smiling at the taste as he remembered eating that huge buffet with Aether when they defeated the queen. He glanced over to see Aether, but he couldn't see where she went.
April looked at Aether, noticing that she was as innocent as she could get. "Feisty? Like they don't listen, they tease and play around" he told her, thinking how she should explain to her. "Well we had some fun. Ya! We had tons of fun. He was all over me" he told her, smirking and then she was surprised to hear her say that she didn't think he would go around to other girls.
"You're confident aren't you. Well you must be feeling really good then. I hope you manage to get along with him" she then headed out and then she just shrugged and hoped what she said made a mark on her.
When Aether returned, he saw her take a bite of the cake and then he smiled a little. She asked him something odd and then he glanced over at her and looked a little confused [b "Umm...I don't know. It depends on the circumstances"] he shrugged, unsure how to answer that.
[b "I can invite them. I'll let them know"] he nodded and then he decided to pay for their meal. [b "Are you all good? Let's head out? We can check out the city lights?"]
The cake came and it looked so good… But that girl came by and she wanted to take this chance to talk to her. Aether felt some weight drop off her shoulders to hear that they were definitely not together…well he could still have done plenty with her and in her world, that would count as being together. He didn’t make moves? Well this was going to be difficult because for one she was a hundred percent sure she was horrible at making moves because she always ends up saying something silly or made it awkward. Did he even really like her? Then she went to talk about how he liked feisty girls. What did that even mean? How was she supposed t o behave? Had she behaved like that before? [b “Feisty…? What do you mean?” ] Maybe she should look things up. Was Soren very different with others, then she was with her?
[b “Fun, how did you have fun? Did you…were you intimate with him?” ] That she was very curious about. Maybe she shouldn’t ask for such thing but she was going to Anyway. Ditch her? She held a calm expression but was wondering if that would ever be the case. She wouldn’t let him. Not when he was the only one like her and she worked so hard to find a person she didn’t fully know. But…this must have said something about him. What if there was some other girl just like them… What if he only liked her because she was the only one? Even so…
[b “No, he wouldn’t. I think I’m the one person he won’t, even if-I won’t let him. Thanks for answering.” ] She quirked up a little smile before April left. He had visited wonderland every day to find her and that didn’t sound like someone who would ditch her. She heads back and sat down across Soren. She decided to give a try of the cake and it was so good. She looked back at Soren and wondered if it was all true. If he easily went to other girls, if he only went to girls for company, or if he liked feisty girls that would make the first move… She didn’t think she fit into that category so well.
[b “Soren…do you like feisty people?” ] She managed to speak and peaked up at him for a second before glancing off. So much for not giving him a hint as to what she talked to her about. [b “Oh! You know, when we open our cupcake place, we should invite your friends, maybe they’ll spread the word too.” ] She figured that would be good for business, since she didn’t have anyone she knew here to invite.
Ah...if she liked him, than would she have to make the first move? THe first move to what? Kiss? She didn't really get it. Maybe she should have got April's number just in case...oh well.
He couldn't really explain to her what hacking was, so maybe if he did a job one day he'd show her. He finished eating his pizza and then when he saw her ordering dessert, he smiled a little and then he saw her heading up to step outside for some reason. When she walked outside, he looked over, his teal eyes following her around until the dessert came. He took a bite of the cake until she returned, but when she mentioned she recognized someone, he wondered who it was. Who could she recognize here in Avalon besides him?
He watched her sit back down and then she was soon off again. Soren decided to let her be, knowing she'd come back. He took a few bites of the chocolate cake and he enjoyed the taste. IT was delicious.
April saw Aether and decided to speak with her for a while. She stepped off to the side and answered her questions. "Me? No, we're not together. We just hang out when we're lonely that's all" she spoke, wondering what kind of person Aether was. Why Soren was taking a liking to her. "What he likes? I know he likes girls that are pretty. Soren doesn't really like to make any moves unless he wants to, so the girl is usually making the moves on him. I guess he likes them feisty too" she smirked and then her last question made her realize that this girl was nothing more than a friend.
"I mean...I do. I like him. I like to have fun with him, but he's always finding a different girl one after the other. You should be careful he probably will ditch you soon enough" she told her before walking off.
She didn’t really get the gist of what hacking was. [b “Oh…I do want to watch you sometime.” ] She finished eating, and Soren ordered dessert, it sounded good, but than something caught her eye. She saw she saw a face she recognized but she must have been seeing things. She felt the cool air brush along her skin. She didn’t get it. What other memories was she missing? She shook it off and walked back inside, taking a sweat beside Soren. [b “I thought I saw someone I recognized, but I think I’m wrong. Sorry, for acting so weird.”] She sighed, tucking her hair behind her ear.
She nibbled on her lip, staying silent as she tried to think for a while, spacing out again when the girl came up. “H-Hi, Aether. Uh, well it’s not…a date. We’re not on that yet. Um yea. The pizza here is great.” Aether tilted her head wondering what was with these questions. Wait, this was her chance. [b “Actually can I talk to you? Girl to girl.” ] She glanced back at Soren [b “Just for a second.” ]
Once she moved enough to figure she was out of hearing distance she spoke, [b “Are you and Soren together, or were you? What is he like? I’m sorry if these questions are a bother.”] She figured she’d get some information. She knew she could get to know Soren just by talking to him but sometimes People can be deceiving. Then another question came to mind. [b “Do…you know what he likes in a girl…” ] Aether said that a bit too quietly. She figured if April had anything with Soren or was close to him than she would know some things. Ah wait.
[b “Soren said you liked him, do you?” ] She met April’s eyes and hoped that she wouldn’t also blab about the questions she asked her to Soren either.
He knew that Aether would probably be really good at shooting. If she could master using a gun, then she could protect herself and fit in well. He took another slice of pizza and then he scarfed it down, licking his lips and then he met her ruby eyes. He wondered why she was so interested in his partners. He tried to explain that it was nothing, but he didn't think AEther was very convinced.
HE tried to tell her about how much he liked hacking, but it was hard talking about it rather than showing her. [b [#F78F18 "Well it involves me on a computer just typing on the screen. I don't know if it'll be much fun, but you can watch me. I can take on a job sometime"]] he suggested and then he finished eating. He looked through the desserts and ended up getting them some chocolate cake and ice cream.
When he saw Aether looking off, he smiled and then he watched her get up and walk out. [b [#F78F18 "Aether?"]] he waited for her to come back and then he asked her. [b [#F78F18 "What's wrong? What did you see?"]] he asked and then he peeked outside of the doorway, looking around. The girl that came earlier walked up to Aether.
She smiled "Hi. I'm April. Nice to meet you. So I hear you're on a date with Soren. Are you having fun?"
Aether nodded [b “Of course. I could learn how to shoot.” ] The pizza here was pretty good. She was curious about Soren and what he did before, or how he was like, if he was the type to go around, or not… She didn’t care for if he’s been with others, that was pretty assumed. It sounded like he did plenty with that girl since she would stay nights. That didn’t matter, but saying it meant nothing…did.
She could never be sure on how it would have gone if she didn’t disappear, if she didn’t forget. They’ve only met each other for short moments but she still felt like she had some connection to him.
[b “Codes? Like passwords?” ] She raised a brow wondering how that worked. [b “You should show me sometime. I want to know what hacking is. Is it really hard?” ] She did remember he knew about Pyrin but Glycon? They rid him of course. [b “Did you like it? I…hardly remember that,” ] She sighed.
[b “Oh… I do but, it’s not worth much in these types of worlds.” ] She sighed. She finished off her pizza and Aeth would glance back for a second wondering if that girl was still here. She looked back at Soren [b Thanks for taking me out to eat. ] She did a double take out the window and swear she saw a face she recognized. She didn’t know what came over her, but she felt the urge to go check and got up from where she stood, and went outside but didn’t see the same face in the crowd. [b “I swear I… “] [i I must be losing my mind. ] [b “I must be tired…” ] Sometimes she’d saw odd things when her mind was working on remembering things.
He told her about why people were using those types of guns rather than the other guns that were used in the older days. They shot much slower, but they had a longer ammo span. Usually they would just have to change a cartridge of ammo after every five hundred shots. It lasted a really long time. He didn't mind teaching her if she really wanted to learn.
When she agreed, he had a smile on his face. [b [#F78F18 "Really? You don't mind going?"]] he asked and then he took in another slice of pizza. He heard her asking about the girl and he tried to explain the situation honestly. She really was just someone he'd spend the night with. Watching movies and just talking with.
When she spoke, he shook his head [b [#F78F18 "I'm pretty sure we were more official than any of those dates. We've gotten to spend a lot of time together. I wanted to make it official, but we just ran out of time"]] he admitted and then he heard her mumble something, but he didn't quite hear it.
He liked hacking a lot. It was so much fun to be able to break through a code that seemed impossible. [b [#F78F18 "I really like it. I don't know how you'll like it though. It's mostly just me sitting on a computer putting in codes on different websites"]] he tried to tell her. [b [#F78F18 "Sometimes I can't do it, but when I'm able to, it feels like a big accomplishment"]] he smiled and told her that he met Pyrin and Glycon.
[b [#F78F18 "Yeah, that was my first time riding a dragon"]] he admitted and then he remembered Glycon taking them on a date. He thought about how much money he had and then he shook his head [b [#F78F18 "I don't have that much money. I just try to make sure I can eat and sleep in a proper place. I do like to save though, how about you? Do you make a lot of money doing odd jobs?"]]
That did sound convenient... [b [#00cca3 "I guess that makes sense." ]] Deadly in a way that they never ran out of bullets. They could go on shooting forever. That did sound pretty horrible. She gave on using guns because of the whole reloading thing and she would fumble while doing it and by then-it was very late. She always warped out of any situation that involved guns. A shooting range... Well if she was going to be in this world, she might as well know how to shoot and protect herself. The last thing she wanted was to be a hassle of things went wrong.
[b [#00cca3 "Sure." ]] Aether lightly smiled, taking the slice. She knew nothing about Soren's history, the life he was living when he wasn't with her. She felt blinded by an emotion she felt and forgot that. She got him until the part of 'nothing was official' when he spend SOME nights together. Not one, not two, some-and it wasn't official. She paused in her movement as she held the pizza wondering if what he said made any sense to him. He must have done it too... [i You're way out of the water to be with him. ] Yup.
[b [#00cca3 "Oh right... just like what we did wasn't really official either, or how you're just someone I met at wonderland before." ]] She was being a bit sarcastic. [i Maybe he's not someone I should... ] She couldn't understand how in the world could it be 'one way' relationship when he clearly spend nights with her. If that was the way he thought things worked then...
[b [#00cca3 "For how long is the question..." ]] She whispered to herself and figured to brush it off for now. She never thought there was such thing as a hacking mentor. Than again, she didn't know much about hacking. [b [#00cca3 "Is hacking fun? Are the jobs fun?" ]] She geniually was curious about it. She wondered what it was like.There was so much to explore here too, that she really didn't know about.
Aether lightly laughed, [b [#00cca3 "Oh right, you know about Pyrin...but I didn't know you knew about Glycon. Guess we met him and flew didn't we." ]] She did remember showing him Pyrin.
[b [#00cca3 "Hmm, I realized I have no idea what the laws of this world are. Some laws in the world I live aren't always...right. Does that mean you have a lot of money?" ]] He probably had many homes in different worlds than. Well she had a decent amount to since she did some high award quests, buts some worlds were even too expensive for her...
He told her about the laser guns and the laser swords, seeing that she looked a little confused. Maybe he'd take her to a range one day so she could try out some of the weapons. [b [#F78F18 "Well they are guns, but instead of having to reload bullets....in these guns you don't really have to reload"]] he told her, thinking about when he could take her. [b [#F78F18 "We can go to a shooting range or when we get back I can show you the ones I have you can give it a try"]] he suggested, taking in a slice of pizza.
He saw one of his friends and when she started flirting right in front of Aether, Soren didn't like it at all. She asked him a question and then he sighed softly [b [#F78F18 "No, she was just someone I've met at the bars before. She was interested in me, so we spent some nights together, but nothing was official"]] he told her and then whens he said he should hang out, he shook his head. [b [#F78F18 "I know. I can hang out with her anytime, but you're here and I want to hang out with you more Aether"]] he met her eyes and then he remembered that a lot of her friends in the castle died.
[b [#F78F18 "I have a few close friends here. I even have a hacking mentor, but I don't see them that often unless I'm doing jobs"]] he admitted, smiling at another bite. He wondered if he's met her best dragon friend. [b [#F78F18 "Oh do you mean...Pyrin? Or Glycon?"]] he remembered playing with one and riding with the other. IT was fun being able to experience that first hand.
[b [#F78F18 "I've played an evil role in a mission before. Usually the missions worth the most money are doing things under the table or aren't legal. I still decide though if I think it's the right thing to do or not"]]
Lasers… What an odd thing. Aether frowned [b “If they shoot slow, then why use lasers? Why not use guns?”] Then she shrugged [b “Well at least I can block them.”] There was a chance of survival after all. The pizza came in and it smelled so good. It tasted pretty great too but she ends up burning her tongue and having to settle it down. She wasn’t really sure what was up with this girl coming in. Were they really just friends? It didn’t seem like it. She didn’t care for him possibly being his girlfriend before.
She needed to ask a better question [b “She wasn’t your girlfriend before, or have you dated her before?”] She wanted to have that clear. It was nothing to get upset about, but lying was something to get upset about. [b “Oh alright…You can still hang out with her you know.”] She glanced off when he was trying to meet her eyes. She really didn’t know him much, she didn’t know how he lived. She felt like she was only seeing one side of him. It would take time, and she hoped that they had it.
[b “Mmm, I have a good number of them. A good chunk of the closest ones from the world…well you’ve been there. The people who used to live in the castle, they died but I still have a good number. Do you have close friends here?”] She took a bite of her pizza and oh did it taste good. She saw how he was smiling and for some reason it made her smile again. [b “Usually in every world I have a really close friend, like a best friend. Although, in one world my best friend is a dragon.” ] She laughed lightly. [b “Did you ever play an evil role in a world before or a mission for fun?” ]
He knew that Avalon was a much different place than the other worlds she's been too, but he liked it here. IT was the first world he was introduced to and it was the first world he grew up in so it just felt more comfortable. He knew the ins and out of this like the back of his hand, so it wasn't that hard to live through it all.
He brought her to the pizza place and took a seat across from her. The restaurant had a lot of lights, music, people chatting and just having a good time. Soren ordered his food and when she said she knew what pizza was, he was glad she did. [b [#F78F18 "Well pizza hasn't changed much here too"]] he grinned and then he tried to explain to her what the swords and guns were.
[b [#F78F18 "Ya, just like how I showed you before. The swords are lasers and the guns shoot lasers too. You can use the sword and try to to block the lasers. They don't really shoot as fast, you can see the bullets coming"]] he told her, seeing his pizza coming in. He took a slice and ate it slowly, smiling at the taste. It was delicious. As he ate, he wanted to talk to Aether more, but was interrupted by an old friend he met at the bar.
[b [#F78F18 "I uhh....will call you sometime"]] he ended with that and then he watched her walk off. He looked over at Aether and nodded. [b [#F78F18 "Just a friend. She would come over sometimes to play games and hang out, but AI's are....one sided sometimes"]] he told her, meeting her ruby eyes.
[b [#F78F18 "Me? Well not really. I make friends with people I meet throughout the worlds. I have some friends here, but sometimes I just get bored and want to be alone"]] he admitted, wondering if she liked the pizza. [b [#F78F18 "Do you have a lot of friends?"]] he wondered, taking another bite of pizza and then smiling up at her. He wanted to focus on Aether and not anyone else right now.
