Again, moods of utter astonishment cascaded over him like a waterfall of emotions. Eirene appeared to be around his age and yet, this wasn't even her time period. "A gift?" Aeolus pondered out loud, well that couldn't be true, then how could my grandfather have ended up with it?
"The pipe was sold to my grandfather many years ago for pennies on the dollar, and a breadbasket. A begging merchant in an alley way who had completely hit rock bottom was eager to part with it." At least that was what he was told, little did he know, his grandfather actually murdered someone for the pipe. The blood of the arrogant merchant seeped into its ancient wood, tainting it with a seal of evil.
Aeolus examined the relic in his hands, his fingertips caressing over its smooth wooden surface. The lap top flickered on, greeting him with in a computerized voice 'Hello', and proceeded to load his saved files. He checked the time on his cellphone, it was getting late. At what part in this day had he come to accept Eirene's company, and her purpose in his room to be normal? He held the smaller device, his cellphone in his hands and instructed her to open her palms. There he placed it, "This is a cellphone, we use it to contact other people who have cellphones that are really far away, understand?" Aeolus folded her hands around it and let her grip what he considered a necessity.
"What you are pointing at is a laptop, you know, a portable computer..." His voice trailed off, chances are, she didn't know what a computer was either. "Anyway! It's used for important things like...homework and the internet" He found himself at a loss of words trying to recreate the last couple of centuries worth of technological advances.
Eirene's eyes were way too transfixed on the phone, an obvious look of awe on her face as she followed the device expertly with her topaz gaze. She had never seen anything like it. "No." she answered calmly before reaching out to the grab the phone only to have it moved out of her grasp as he rolled over to fetch something else. Another expression of curiousity rolled over her face as he revealed a case of some kind and then something inside of the case. Seemingly transfixed by the screen she watched carefully as Aelous pressed a button.
Blinking, she waited for something else to cause a terrible noise that displeased her. Though when that didn't happen, she starred at the screen unblinking. Moving her upper body her palms rested flat against the floor as she very carefully moved closer to the laptop. "I don't know, what is it exactly?" she inquired as she starred at the laptop as if it was otherworldly. Though Eirene was just waiting for something to jump out and bite her by now. Everything was so different, it didn't make any sense to her.
Once she had situated herself onto the bed, she shifted her gaze back to Aeolus. "Stop saying words I can't unerstand." She lightly held her head. "I don't know what any of the stuff is, I swear you take a little nap and poof everything changes." Eirene spoke in an amazed tone. "The pipe was a gift from my mother Nature." She spoke softly. "It's a very important instrument. Ophelia grows more angry and more wicked each day and I'm defenseless with out it. Which means my precious humanity is also defenseless." She sighed out.
"but I really don't know what any of this stuff is or what it's for, but you seem to be good at explaining this stuff so..what is this thing?" her finger gently poked the laptop's side.
"..." Aeolus felt his palm washing over his face several times before the action drew attention to itself. It was like, somewhere inside him, his patience and his kindness, had been literally snapped in two as the break of his nerves echoed through out his head. His fingers tapped wildly against the comforter of his bed, and a sigh from him so deep, slowly but surely calmed the storm swelling in his emotions. "It was the volume you ninny" Aeolus scolded lightly, it was like being in charge of a five year old.
He examined her once again, her clothes, the way she spoke, all of this suggested that she wasn't even from this time period let alone this century. He saw her eyes glisten at his Android phone, another little trinket Eirene should not toy with. He placed the cellphone in front of her hues, "Have you not seen one of these?" Aeolus pondered, waving it back and forth across her eyes, his windows watching hers as they traced his hand movement.
"Alright ...Eirene...how can you not know what this is?" He rolled over to the side of his bed, fetching underneath it, a black miniature suede suitcase the size of a laptop. Aeolus revealed to her his precious baby, presenting it before Eirene's most curious eyes. "And this, have you any clue what it is?" He revealed the pitch black screen of the lap top before her, placing it on the centerfold of his bed.
"Let me get this straight, you know nothing about technology but everything about a little pipe?"
By the time Aeolus had finished expressing his displeasure of being hit in the head with that terrible, roaring device the girl had been looking around for something else to amuse her. Having that search end up fruitless for the moment, she could only smile at him. "Oh hush dear boy." She spoke softly. "You know there are more to worry about than small injuries like that~" she ho-hummed. Making her way over to the window, she had just lifted a hand to undo the latch, when she heard a knocking, followed by a concerned masculine tone.
It wasn't until this occurred that Eirene realized how loudly she had screamed. It was just out of shock. The thing roared at her like some beast out of cave! How was she supposed to react? Once she was sure he was far enough downthe hall, she resumed opening the window, just enough to slide her hands under the screen and catch a few droplets of the rain water. It touched her palms and the murkey colored dissolved with a ripple of silver becoming clear as a bell. Storing it in a small vile she had gotten from one of the layers in her kimono, she decided to use it later.
Closing the window back the way it had been, she began to search his room again. "Ah!" her eyes landed on the cellphone with the great interest, but it was snagged away when he answered her first question. "Music? Tis no beast dwelling inside of it? Then what roared at me?" she questioned unbelieving of him.
As if his poor temple hadn't suffered enough abuse for the day, Eirene made it her duty to ensure that the standards of injury were not only met but exceeded as the chunk of not so light weight metal struck his forehead unexpectedly. His hands covered his face as he sat there at the center of his bed dazed. His anger was fuming inside of him, threatening to explode in rage. It fizzled over when the girl decided she did not like his i pod, what did it ever do to her,"I'll tell you what it's not for. Throwing at people!" Aeolus accused with a finger pointing dead at his culprit. He would be feeling this in the morning.
"It's for listening to music, have you been sleeping under a rock for the passed five years?" He grumbled rubbing the sore spot on his temple, "If you don't like it then don't touch it ever again.." He placed the ipod within a drawer next to his bed side. The house...was unusually quiet, a knock on the door from his father. "Aeolus, is everything all right in there?" The older man was confused and struck by interest from the rather feminine scream he could have sworn he heard. "I.." Aeolus trailed off, "Am practicing singing! Is it lovely father?" Aeolus called from behind the door.
"Hardly.." The older man grumbled underneath his breath, his mustache ruffling with a smile, "Needs a bit more work son!" His Irish accent poured from behind the door. Gee thanks dad... Aeolus sighed helplessly. You know, it wasn't his intention to get stuck with a stormstress, all he wanted to do was spend the summer at his grandfather's lake house, go back to the city, and attend his last year of high school. Was that so much to ask?
Choosing to materialize once again, the girl situated herself in the seiza position tucking her legs beneath her as she placed her hands in her lap. Ofcourse her hands occupied with his ipod. She had taken a liking to it. "Removing that seal is only something a daemon could do, but if times have definitely changed." She spoke wistfully. Eirene herself was water resistant in a sense, or else she simply be tracking water everywhere. The water seemed to roll of her body in small droplets, not seeping into her clothes. "You know this thing is rather interesting..what is it for?" she questioned as she tilted her head to the side when the screen shifted from vertical to horizontal and giggled in delight.
The glint in those honey colored hues turned a bit serious. 'Situation Report.' She told herself. 'First, I found my pipe, but it will not recognize me until my powers have fully awakened, and secondly, the seal applied by the daemon Ophelia had contacted for that purpose is rejecting me. This time period is strange and funny.' She went over the situation. 'Ontop of that, the library is my only hope of finding a daemon and it may have been long abandoned. Graver still, there was her second hope, a stubborn boy with questionable mental stability and seemingly no knowledge of anything she spoke of.
Her fingers continued to play with ipod idly. Sliding her finger tips across the screen, pressing the tiny pictures on the surface of the screen. That was until something roared at her! It roared, she swore it did. "Kyah!" she cried out absolute shock, not realizing it was music and chucked the ipod with pretty impressive aim at the boy's head. "I don't like it." She decided.
He ran a hand through his hair, its slightly tangled strands locked in small curls around his fingers. Today, oh today couldn't have been any more weird. Surely, there was some man out there that delighted in have women stalk them through water, but Aeolus certainly wasn't a candid fan.
She....Eirene had yet to answer his question about how to remove this so called seal from her supposed pipe.
"Let me guess, you have some plan for all of this?" He questioned grimly when silence befell her like a wicked spell. Since Eirene seemed to know everything, then it was her job to come up with some elaborate plan. Afterall, he was just a mortal of seventeen years of age, he couldn't even compare to her centuries of wisdom.
Aeolus stared at the woman, for a strange water...lady...stormstress, she was elaborately dressed and..mystically beautiful. Aeolus glanced over to the table that he thought he had put his i pod down to see that it had gone missing. His eyes darted to Eirene, who had transformed herself into a puddle, she better not have caused any water damage! Because, his i-Pod was ten times more important than some ancient pipe.
Dispersing into a puddle, the young woman decided to simply stay there. She was running out of time and patience. Not only was she stuck in some strange new century, but she had no idea where to find a mage or where she could find a daemon that would be strong enough to break her seal. Did ..daemon's even exist in this era? She could just take the pipe, at her own expense being that holding it would probably hurt. She could place it in something else and take it to a daemon, that would be able to break the seal.
Daemons were clever beings. Half human and Half God, and seals were there specialty. All she had to was find a daemon, and they could break the seal. Now normally, Eirene wouldn't sink so low as to just take it but it was more important to her than it was to him. Biting the inside of her cheek, she sighed. There was a daemon that used to dwell in Ophelia's library of Atlantis, but the place was probably long abandoned.
"No, we mustn't think bad thoughts." She whispered to herself. Her plan was simple. Ofcourse she would see to it than he was cleared of any of Ophelia's influence, and then she'd take the flute and head to the library in hopes of finding the daemon she so needed. It wasn't a bright situation to look at if she couldn't get that flute, but humans were selfish creatures. She had no choice.
She began bombarding me with questions as I hung up my phone and threw it on the bed. "Well Eirene, let's review that facts here, you did some...things and started demanding something very important to me" Aelous trailed off placing a finger on his chin, pacing back and forth across the room like some detective.
"No I don't know how old it is and nor do I care, and no, I can't play it either, but it is still mine to treasure. I don't see your name written in the will for it" Aeolus stubbornly protested, this pipe was his only memory left of his deceased grandfather, just why would he fork it over to some woman claiming to be a...stormstress? "What the hell is a stormstress..." Aeolus muttered darkly, and the fact that she kept referring to him as a mortal sunk under his skin.
"Look, Eirene, the chances of you getting this pipe back are slim to none and I do mean slim, and since you won't go away if I give it to you anyway, the chances are now just none. So run along in your little puddles and leave me alone" His hands placed around her shoulders as he attempted to redirect her towards the door. And then, the floor was wet around him, she had completely diffused herself into a puddle beneath his feet.
Aeolus groaned at his now dampened socks before taking a flop on his bed. Eirene had said something about a seal, she had said a lot of things that utterly confused him.."And what of this seal ..?"
