[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 Galen stared up at the stars, food thoroughly forgotten. He looked at the twinkle that Aries was pointing to, and tried to imagine what it would look like; large cities full of people like Aries. As he was soon told, though, it was no longer like that, and Aries' species was dying out. He felt a twinge of sadness, that he might never see that world, or rather, any other world than the one he was currently on. He was slightly jealous that Aries had traveled so much between the planets, experiencing so much. Aries turned towards him, so Galen responded in kind, studying the strange smile playing over the Drifter's lips.

"[+red You know what, Galen? You are the first human that hasn't been nothing, but an annoyance to me. I am actually not a fan of humans. But you are something special, alright. Something that I can't quite put my finger on it,]" Galen's heart began to race as Aries leaned in closer to him, their faces mere centimeters away from each other. He felt the heat of a flush spread across his cheeks and onto his ears, comprehending their closeness. "[+red I guess you could say that you are someone that I hold very dear to me and I won't let anything ever bad happen to you, okay?]" Galen nodded, finding it very difficult to speak. He felt as though air was eluding him as Aries pressed their foreheads together, the intimacy unexpected and slightly overwhelming.

Finally plucking up the courage, Galen leaned in closer to Aries, brushing their lips together, barely, just a brush of a feather. He was surprised at just how soft the Drifter's lips felt, and felt as though he could kiss those lips forever. He placed his hand on Aries' cheek, keeping the Drifter close as he kissed him again, deeper this time, and almost desperate, like he was drowning and Aries was oxygen. The Drifter tasted like the salted bread they had been eating just moments ago; he tasted like the copper twinge of blood, remnants from the fight earlier. He somehow tasted like what Galen imagined space to taste like: sweet and warm and [i whole]. His eyes were closed, and he let himself get lost in the kiss, thinking of nothing but their lips pressed together and the racing of their twin hearts.

[center [size12 In the middle of eating, Aries looked over at Galen with a curious expression as to why he was asking permission before swallowing his food and giving this half, tooth grin at him. [i [#FF0000 "We have enough money for that, so of course, I don't mind,"]] Aries kept pretty close tabs on his money. He was definitely an above average creature when it came to saving money. Most nonhuman creatures had no need for money, but Aries was, of course, a bit different. He was a Drifter, Drifters need money to do their jobs actually. Food, medicine, and anything else to help them on their journey would need money.]]
[center [size12 Aries was a bit concentrated on nibbling his food to hear the question at first, but it finally registered in his brain and he looked up at the stars and various other planets and looked concerned for a moment.]]
[center [size12 [i [#FF0000 "You see the brightest star next that,"]] Aries was pointing at what he wanted to show Galen. [i [#FF0000 "That is actually my home planet. There is a whole community of people like me. Small, little blue cat looking people,"]] he chuckled, [i [#FF0000 "there isn't that many left actually, though. It's a dying star now."]] He did not quite realize how dreary he sounded when he said that his home planet was now dying, but he quietly chuckled softly. [i [#FF0000 "But, to answer your question, I am actually a lot older than I appear and I've been to various planets and galaxies that you couldn't imagine,"]] he then leaned over to Galen and had this curious smile on his face, tilting his head.]]
[center [size12 [i [#FF0000 "You know what, Galen? You are the first human that hasn't been nothing, but an annoyance to me. I am actually not a fan of humans,"]] Galen explained. He actually really did not like humans, but of course, he wasn't going to outright tell him that when he first met the kid. [i [#FF0000 "But you are something special, alright. Something that I can't quite put my fingers on it,"]] he then leaned in a bit closer to Galen, their faces mere centimeters away from one another. [i [#FF0000 "I guess you could say that you are someone that I hold very dear to me and I won't let anything ever bad happen to you, okay?"]] His goofy, curious grin was now a more serious, calm facial expression as he leaned his forehead against Galen in a very intimate fashion.]]

[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 Galen couldn't help but smile as he relaxed into Aries' half embrace. A flush spread across his face as Aries told him that he was kind, and caring. Before he could respond that he couldn't [i possibly] be either of those things, Aries had pulled out his pack to grab food and water and had asked if he was hungry. His stomach growled loudly in response.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen I suppose I am. Thanks for asking. While we're in town tomorrow, would you mind if I picked up some ingredients for a healing salve as well? It might help, seeing as days like today are going to become more common occurrences.]" Galen knew that he didn't [i have] to ask, but he felt better about getting permission before spending the money that he and the Drifter had pooled together. He took a bite out of a crust of bread, happy for the heat of the fire and the Drifter's body heat now that the sun was down. He glanced skyward, taking in the beautiful sight of the moon and stars, and nudged Aries gently. "[+forestgreen Have you ever been there? Space?]" He asked, watching the still red hot soot of the fire rise to mingle with the stars.]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 34d 11m 54s
[center [size12 Aries appreciated the concern more than anything, he could not help, but to smile at the human who was treating his wounds. It was nice to have someone around with some kind of medical background or practice because Aries has been hurt worse than this way too many times. At least he had Galen now. Plus, it was a refreshing change of pace to have someone else around, as well. It was like he had to be more cautious now. He had to be smarter than before. Before, he was so reckless and did whatever he pleased. Now, he had someone he had to protect. It was nice.]]
[center [size12 As Galen went to gather firewood, Aries laid down on the cool grass. He was glancing up at the sky that was slowly growing dark and began growing worried, but kept in mind that humans were slower than Drifters. He sat up though and kept a watch out, staring into the darkening area where Galen had walked off into. He was holding his breath without realizing it.]]
[center [size12 Finally, Galen made an appearance and Aries felt about a million times better and smiled in relief. He looked over at the human, feeling his body lean against his. It felt oddly comforting. He was awkward though. He slowly wrapped an arm around Galen's shoulders and pulled him in closer.]]
[center [size12 [i [#FF0000 "You know, I was very hesitant about bringing you with me, but this is nice. Its nice to have a human around, so kind and so caring,"]] he admitted before pulling on his bag to grab out some food and a canteen. [i [#FF0000 "You hungry? I have enough food for tonight and tomorrow, we should be reaching the next town to restock on supplies,"]] Aries explained.]]

[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 Galen noticed Aries' body tensing as he prepared to run, and started sprinting forward towards the archway. He noticed that the Drifter was falling behind, so he slowed a bit to let the other gain some ground. Out of the corner of his eye, Galen caught a glimpse of something, but only a glimpse before Aries had drifted forward, pulling the both of them out of the way of a giant hand that crashed down right where they had been. Galen let out a gasp of surprise, tense, as Aries asked if he was alright. "[+forestgreen I'll be fine. Go get 'em.]" He said, smiling reassuringly at Aries. The Drifter murmured for him to stay safe and Galen responded in kind. He would stay back for now, even though it made him feel thoroughly useless. Galen watched as Aries drew his sword, piercing the creature several times. His eyes widened in surprise and terror as Aries looked back at him, only to be smacked and knocked backwards, almost off a cliff. As he stood, Galen glimpsed a stain of red darkening Aries' tunic. Galen winced in sympathy and pulled off his pack, trying to keep watch for other creatures that may come to back this one up while also searching for the medical supplies he had packed before they left.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon Aries finally finished the thing off, and he came back over to where Galen had set up. "[+red I guess I should have been paying closer attention. I'm sorry, Galen.]" Aries was pouting slightly as Galen pulled up his tunic to get to the injured area to treat it. "[+forestgreen It wasn't your fault. Just try to be more careful next time, okay? I think we should stay the night here so you can rest, it's getting dark already anyway.]" Galen said, carefully wrapping the wound on Aries' chest with some gauze. "[+forestgreen You should take it easy tonight. I'll take watch and make sure we're okay. You stay here, I'm gonna go grab some firewood.]" Galen hesitated, listening for Aries' approval, before pulling out a short sword he had found a couple days prior and headed out to hunt for firewood.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon After several minutes of looking, Galen found sufficient firewood for the night and headed back to their camp to start the fire. He sat down next to Aries, leaning on him gently. "[+forestgreen So how are you feeling? That was quite a hit you took earlier.]"]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 58d 14h 26m 16s
[center [size12 It was rare for Aries to not only be getting along with a human, but actually smile with one around. Humans were a rare creature to come across in these troubled times since their immune systems couldn't handle the sickness, as well as this being basically an alien planet for humans, who were no raised in these parts. Humans adopted the ways of aliens and foreign creatures as a way to adapt to this sickness. Most grew a tougher immune system like this human that Aries has brought with him, but most have perished, sadly. Aries hated the thought of all these humans dying, like Galen's family.]]
[center [size12 Aries chuckled quietly before nodding, accepting the challenge. [i [#FF0000 "I haven't actually ran in a very long time, so I would not doubt you beating me in a fair and square race, but lets see,"]] Aries cleared his throat and began running as quickly as he could, but it didn't seem to be enough.]]
[center [size12 As he was closing behind Galen, Aries caught a glimpse of something nasty. A giant monster. Aries held his breath for a moment, drifting forward to grab a hold of Galen and pulled him out of the way of the monster's hand that came crashing to the dirt that was where Galen once was. He rolled, holding Galen close to his chest before exhaling loudly.]]
[center [size12 [i [#FF0000 "You okay?"]] Aries asked in a concerned voice before rolling over to his stomach to look up at the towering creature that was here to kill them, stop them from getting closer to the Judgement. His eyes narrowed with the intent on killing. [i [#FF0000 "Stay safe,"]] Aries murmured softly to Galen before getting up from the dampen grass.]]
[center [size12 Aries withdrew his sword, a long, blue colored blade. It was a sword made of light, that could pierce through most anything that otherwise could not be slashed into. He waited for the monster to attack, watching its movements very carefully.]]
[center [size12 Aries gracefully dodged the monstrous claws that came down to where he was once standing. Aries took the sword and stabbed it into the monster's flesh, letting blood gushing from the wound as he ripped the sword through the grayish flesh before yanking it out of the tough skin. Blood gushed over the once green grass.]]
[center [size12 As Aries went to look back and check on Galen, he was knocked backwards, rolling across the ground with a soft grunt. He stopped himself from falling off the edge and got up. His chest suffered the worst of the blow. His chest been staining his shirt with a tint of red. He coughed softly a few times before he went in to finish off the monster. Slicing and dicing until he felt like the monster was actually dead.]]
[center [size12 Once that was over, Aries groaned quietly. He put its sword back into its rightful place and pulled his mask down with a small pout. [i [#FF0000 "I guess I should have been paying closer attention. I'm sorry, Galen,"]] Aries knew that he didn't need to apologize, but he still did.]]

[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 Galen was equal parts anxious and relieved when Aries told him that he could stay the night in the room with him. He smiled in thanks, when the Drifter held his face again. Galen was somewhat prepared for it this time, so he didn't flinch. Aries was quiet for a few moments, simply staring into Galen's eyes, and then he spoke, a kind of good luck charm, Galen thought. After that, Aries crawled back into his bed and promptly fell asleep. Galen looked around for a moment, before setting his sights on a particularly comfortable looking patch of carpet. He pulled a light blanket out of his backpack, then laid down, using his backpack as a pillow. It wasn't the most comfortable arrangement, but he was sure he would have to get used to it quickly. It took a few minutes, but finally, Galen drifted off into sleep, his dreams littered with adventure and romance.]]]
[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 ~~~~~]]]
[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 Galen watched as Aries faded in and out, appearing in places that would normally be unreachable. He watched as the Drifter appeared across a huge gap that would be extremely difficult to cross. Galen was just about to attempt to jump when he heard Aries' voice.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+red You stuck, buddy?]" He joked.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen Shut up...]" Galen replied, blushing slightly. Aries had only recently started to get used to Galen, which had led to more jokes. It was, admittedly, a nice change as opposed to the almost cold disposition the Drifter had had when they first met. He moved to the side of the pillar Aries had mentioned, and watched it topple down, providing a kind of bridge for Galen to cross.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+red I know its hard to travel with me and not being able to get to places I can.]" Aries said as they walked. Galen bumped him with his shoulder playfully.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen You know I don't mind. It's kinda fun, watching you pop up everywhere.]" He replied. Galen pointed to an archway ahead of them. "[+forestgreen I bet that I could beat you to that archway if you just ran, and didn't use your powers. Fair and square. Lets race!]" He challenged, watching Aries' movements for signs he was about to run.]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 94d 2h 51m 37s
[center [size12 It was a sad fact that this kid was not able to swallow. Aries was going to die, no matter what anyone did. Unless by a miracle, Aries' fate was set in stone. He was one of the last known Drifters and his fate was death, after creating a new world for humans and creatures to live together in harmony without this damned sickness. As long as Aries could do one last, good thing, his death would not be for not. He just hoped that this kid would understand it once the time came, but for now, Aries just smiled at him. He felt a strange bond between them. A soft, sweet bond that Aries hadn't felt in a very long time. The last time that he felt this was with another Drifter, his name was Orion. Aries could not dwell too much on his former friend, Orion, or he got sicker.]]
[center [size12 Softly, he sighed and stood up. He was still tired and required more rest before any kind of adventure, so he looked at the other bed that was next to his. [i [#FF0000 "We can leave in the morning, but for now, I need more sleep,"]] he then gestured to the bed. [i [#FF0000 "You can sleep here, as well. I don't mind it,"]] he murmured softly before looking at the kid with a tired expression. [i [#FF0000 "I know I may have came off as rude and short with you, but I appreciate the help on this journey. I know that I may need it,"]] he explained, taking the kid's face, once more, into his small, blue hands and stared deeply into the kid's eyes. For a moment, he found himself at a loss for words. He was unable to speak for just a moment before clearing his throat. [i [#FF0000 "May we vanquish this horrible foe and come back alive,"]] with that, Aries crawled back into his bed, pushing his face into the pillow and quickly drifted back off to sleep.]]
[center [size15 [b ~ One Week Later ~]]]
[center [size12 Aries had a special ability that humans could NOT possess. He could drift through light and time, which caused him to be in one place, one second and another within seconds. He seemed to completely disappear in thin air and reappeared in his desired location. The hardest part about working with a human on his journey was his mortality and lack of powers. It was a lot harder than Aries had expected, but also gave both him and Galen a challenge.]]
[center [size12 As Aries skipped through time to get to another side of a floating platform, he could see Galen across a gap that separated both of them and falling off the two platforms meant certain death. He could not help, but to chuckle as he looked at Galen, giving him a childish wave. [i [#FF0000 "You stuck, buddy?"]] Aries had only recently become playful with Galen. Before, he was reserved and quiet, so this meant that Aries was finally opening up to his partner.]]
[center [size12 [i [#FF0000 "Here, move out of the way of that pillar,"]] Aries quickly shifted back over to where to managed to knock down the pillar and appeared back into his original spot, which was mere inches away from where the pillar had fallen. [i [#FF0000 "I know its hard to travel with me and not being able to get to places I can,"]] Aries explained as he began walking.]]

[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 Galen knew he had been over dramatic, he felt strongly about losing [i another] person to the Judgement, but he hadn't meant to behave so irrationally in the presence of the Drifter. Galen could tell that Aries was put off by his outburst. He lowered his head and felt the heat of a dark flush spread across his cheeks. He only glanced up again when the Drifter began to speak.]]]

[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 "[+red I know the mere fact that I may die isn't an easy thing to swallow, but think of it like this... We all have to make sacrifices to be able to live happily and for others to live their healthy, happy lives. I happen to be one of those people that has to make a sacrifice. I know its hard to accept the fact, but it has to be this way,]" Aries glanced up and gave Galen a small smile. He extended a hand and caressed Galen's cheek, tilting his head and smiling gently. Galen had to fight the urge to pull away because [i no one had touched him like that since Ripley], but he instead found comfort in the touch and leaned into it slightly. "[+red But with this, your sister and father's death would be avenged, by not only me, but you too. Don't let my death make you upset.]" Aries said. He was speaking gently and Galen had a suspicion that he was trying to provide comfort to the man.]]]

[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen I understand what you're saying. Thank you, for being willing to take me with you. I will fight with you to avenge my father and my sister, and I will take care of you when you get sick.]" Galen said. He grabbed Aries' hands and held them in his own. "[+forestgreen But by the gods, I will not let you die. Not yet. We still have work to do.]" He looked deep into Aries' eyes with a kind of fierce determination, then stood. "[+forestgreen So when do we leave?]"]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 116d 2h 50m 34s
[center [size12 Aries paused before glancing up at the kid, who seemed to be destroyed at the mere fact of Aries dying. The kid did not know what this disease, the infection that The Judgement had casted upon this land and how it affected the people who got it. It wasn't a cured thing by just defeated the original creator of it. The people that had the disease would still die, but those who were healthy and could live on after The Judgement was defeated, they would live a healthy, happy life without fear of anything bad happening to them again. Aries was, unfortunately, one of the people, who would most likely die in the end. From not only the disease, but fighting the monster was going to take the hardest toll on his body.]]
[center [size12 Aries then sighed softly, ruffling his fingers through his white hair. [i [#FF0000 "I know the mere fact that I may die isn't an easy thing to swallow, but think of it like this..."]] Aries began, [i [#FF0000 "We all have to make sacrifices to be able to live happily and for others to live their healthy, happy lives. I happen to be one of those people that has to make a sacrifice. I know its hard to accept the fact, but it has to be this way,"]] Aries then glanced up at the kid with tired eyes and a half smile.]]
[center [size12 Aries then reached out, taking the side of the male's face into his small, blue coloured hand and tilted his head with a kind smile on his face. [i [#FF0000 "But with this, your sister and father's death would be avenged, by not only me, but you too. Don't let my death make you upset,"]] Aries spoke gently now. He realizes that this kid didn't have much now, after losing not one, but two of his family members to this curse. Aries couldn't be hard on him anymore. He had to be kind, gentle even to get his point across.]]

[center [Cutive+Mon [size15 When Aries finally opened the door, he explained his drowsy behavior and Galen scratched the back of his head, blushing slightly from embarrassment. Maybe he should've waited until the next day... But he was there, so there was no turning back. He entered at Aries' behest and pulled up a chair from the small sitting area. When Aries sat, he proceeded to Galen out for his actions, which made the man flush again and avoid eye contact, or at least try to.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen I can fight! ...I think. I've never really tried it out in front of anyone, but I thought I would learn, just in case. I could help you!]" Galen was so excited, the Drifter would let him come if he could fight! But... did Aries just say he may very well die? No. That couldn't happen. Galen wouldn't [i let] that happen. This was one of the last Drifters in existence, after all, and the loss of him could hurt the entire universe greatly.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen Wait... did you just say you might die at the end? Wouldn't defeating the Judgement cure you? You... you can't die! I want to help. If not for me... then for my father... and for my sister... Please let me come with you.]" Galen said. He looked Aries straight in the eyes - holding back a shudder - and a tear rolled down his cheek. "[+forestgreen Please, Aries...]" He said, fighting back more tears and clasping his hands in front of him, almost begging.]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 132d 4h 34m 16s
[center [size12 The Drifter was woken up by the knocking at his room door. He sat up, smacking his dried lips before looking over at the door in a tired manner. He rubbed his eyes, pulling himself up from the bed before finally walking over to it. He gave a big yawn before opening the door. She looked up at the kid and offered a tired, but kind of goofy smile at him. It was obvious, Aries was still half asleep. He needed to let himself wake up a bit more.]]
[center [size12 [i [#FF0000 “Hi. Sorry, I was taking a nap, but you’re fine. Come in,”]] Aries opened the door just enough for the kid to come in before shutting it behind him. He slid the dead bolt chain over the door before returning to the bed, where he sat back down. His feet and legs were tucked underneath his body. He looked very small and the way he was sitting did not help that fact. Aries was a tiny being anyway. [i [#FF0000 So, I could not help, but to notice that you wanted to join me on my journey to fight The Judgement,”]] Aries asked, calling the kid out point blank. He probably appeared to be an asshole, but he really wasn’t. Just waking up from a deep sleep.]]
[center [size12 Aries then shrugged, he was conflicted. He did not know this kid that well, plus he did not know if the kid could fend for himself and hold his own against monsters that he has never seen before. Aries had to be cautious with this one. [i [#FF0000 “So, this journey isn’t an easy one. I will most likely die in the end, but if that means ridding this land of the Judgement, then so be it. But, the point I am trying to make here is that if you cannot hold your own and fight for yourself, then you cannot come,”]] Aries stated blandly. He did not want this kid getting himself killed because he wanted to leave his home behind in search of exciting things. [i [#FF0000 “If you come with me, you have to know how to fight monsters and creatures that you have never seen before and you cannot expect me to help you. Yes, we would be a team, but you have to know how to hold your own,”]] Aries explained in a factual, curt manner, looking up at the kid with a tired expression before offering yet another kind of goofy, toothy smile.]]

[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon As soon as Galen had left the Drifter's presence, he regretted it. He knew that it had been rude to just leave like that, but now that he had done it, he couldn't bear to return. He watched from the kitchen window as the Drifter finished his meal, paid, and left. After the man had left, Galen let out a breath that he hadn't known he had been holding. Shaking his head gently, he returned to the Drifter's table and began to clear it. He was about to throw away one of the many napkins he had brought over when he saw some writing on it. "[b The Inn, room 12. Come by, we need to discuss some things. Your friend. Aries, The Drifter.]" Galen just stared at the note for a moment, shocked that the Drifter - Aries was his name, Aries - wanted to speak to him more. He had thought that his several missteps would have irredeemably tarnished his good name in Aries' eyes, but apparently not. Galen resolved to go to Aries' room to talk once his shift ended.]]]
[center ~~~~~]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon It was early evening before Galen's shift ended. He was equal parts nervous and excited for his meeting with Aries. As he walked home, he pondered all the things that could go wrong, and also all the things that could go perfectly. He certainly couldn't wear his work uniform - what if they got swept into an adventure before he got to change? - and decided that he would go home and pack a bag first, just in case. So, when he arrived, he snuck past his mother and went to his room to change and pack a bag. He changed into a pair of jeans, a shirt with the logo of some long forgotten band from Earth on it, and a dark green hoodie to match his beanie. He packed 3 of everything into a pack, then left his room and made his way to Aries', room 12.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon He knocked three times, then stepped back and waited, one hand holding the strap of his pack and the other hanging loosely by his side. '[i [+forestgreen This feels weird and I don't like it but I don't know what else to do with it and - ohmygodthat'shim]]' He was thinking when the Drifter opened the door. "[+forestgreen U-uh... Hi...]" Galen said, trying to avoid gawking at the Drifter without his helmet, mask, and cloak.]]]
  s t a r s / Monday- / 139d 1h 33m 57s
[center [size12 The kid could keep no secret from the Drifter. He could sense the excitement that the kid was feeling just knowing who Aries was and what he did for a living. Slaying monsters, keeping people safe, and even fighting things like The Judgement. Aries' ancestors had been doing this for thousands of years and now, Aries was one of the last few remaining Drifters left. Most were in hiding, not doing their duties, or even just trying to live a normal life. Aries was the last one or two that were out there, trying to protect the precious creatures and humans that were just trying to survive day to day. It pained him to know that Aries couldn't save the day by himself.]]
[center [size12 Aries was about to respond to the kid, but he scurried off before he could even open his mouth. Aries' ears flattened in confusion before sighing softly. He then began nibbling silently on his salad. Aries couldn't stomach more heavy foods, like meats anymore. The sickness and corruption was slowly destroying his body, but if he could kill The Judgement, restore power to Anubis, all creatures, humans, and himself would be free from this curse and be able to go on living without fear. Aries feared that he wouldn't be able to do it alone.]]
[center [size12 Aries was nearing the end of his meal and glanced around. The restaurant was close to being empty and he got up. He left what money he had to pay for the meal and some left over for the kid before scribbling down on one of the napkins his room in the Inn and a small message. [b Come by, we need to discuss some things. Your friend. Aries, The Drifter.] With that, Aries pulled his face mask back up, plopping his helmet have over his head, and left the restaurant and headed directly to the Inn where he wanted to lay down for a while.]]

He was left to a long shirt, his skirt, and pants. He glanced into the mirror at his endless, dark eyes and sighed. He didn't realize how creepy he looked, no matter how nice he was. Aries shook his head and climbed his way into the bed and huffed. [i Much better than a wet ground, or a cold cave,] he purred before finding himself drifting off to sleep.]]

[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon When the Drifter confirmed his identity, it was all Galen could do to keep from jumping around and yelling from happiness. He was just about to ask if the Drifter would take him on his journey, when the Drifter started coughing. It was a distinct cough, the same one his father and sister had before they passed. Galen instinctively took a step back and everyone in the restaurant quieted again, some turning to stare at the Drifter. After his initial shock, Galen stepped forward again, tempted to place a hand on the Drifter's shoulder to give comfort, but that would be rude, and he decided against it. Instead, he retrieved several more napkins for the Drifter, just in case. When the Drifter's coughing fit finally quieted, he cleaned up the blood that he had coughed up and apologized.]]]
[center [size15 [Cutive+Mon "[+forestgreen There's no need to apologize for something out of your control,]" Galen said softly. "[+forestgreen I know how it is, my father and sister were Corrupted before they passed... If you don't mind me asking, Drifter, what are you doing here in Ashur? This town is nothing special... If you need company I'd be glad to-]" Galen cut himself off. He was over-stepping. "[+forestgreen I'm sorry, I'll leave you to your meal.]" He squeaked, then scurried off back to the kitchen.]]]
