Re: The Land of Chaos: A Lost Past

Post by Batsu on Wed Apr 27, 2016 10:20 am

Batsu stopped and looked at the girl with the flame colored hair. She'd just asked if something was wrong and he wanted to nod or to say yes. Clearly his mood concerned her and it had not been intentional in the least. He was silent for a moment. Finally he gave her an answer. "Yeah, I'm fine. I was just thinking." A lie, but why should he give he reason to worry. His problems were not hers to burden. He didn't wish to trouble anyone, and he'd already done as much with Cross and Alice. He lowered his gaze and continued. He'd also burdened many others. While he had been given his own body, he still remembered the things he'd done. The villages he'd destroyed, the people he'd killed, and the many souls he'd devoured, but what bothered him the most was that burning desire to crush the Onihana clan. They were the cause of this, but he too had to claim responsibility. He shook his head and looked to Saionna his grey eyes a bit shadowed, but he managed a smile. "What would you like eat for dinner," he asked.

Saionna looked at Batsu curiously, awaiting an answer. He said he was fine, but was he actually?  "Thinking about what?" What could he be thinking about with such a serious expression? Her face went blank in confusion when he asked what she wanted for dinner. "Um...er..." What did one have for dinner? Thanks to Silence, she knew the general idea of what it was, but...not what one ate. After a minute, her gaze fell and she shifted lightly as she walked, thoroughly confused. She'd helped Hunter cook earlier, but she didn't remember what it was called. Weren't they having...whatever that was, for dinner?

He hadn't expected her to ask him what he was thinking about. He more or less thought she'd let it go. He didn't face her as he spoke. "About the group. We all are working for Silence, but eventually there has to be an end. I'm thinking of the future,"he told her. Batsu thought about what he'd just said. Eventually things would have to come to an end. What end? He wasn't an optimistic person, so he didn't think everyone would have a happy ending. Saionna was still plagued with Madness and he could succumb to it. He could not escape what he had become. Fara and DK and Alice were merely children at a glance. Who was to say this fight against madness wouldn't break them. Boreas had his mind on whatever being had appeared from ice and Hunter was no longer immortal now that he'd drawn the blade from the underground cavern which he'd been bond to. Finally there was Cross who's memories had been returned. None of them were guaranteed to live through this and if they did, what good would come of it? These were the things he didn't speak aloud. These were there things that bothered him so. He smiled as Saionna seem to be unable to answer the question of what was for dinner. "It's fine, you don't have to answer."

Saionna was quiet as Batsu spoke. She knew that all things had an end. She'd brought many ends about herself. Was the end as scary as everyone else made it out to be? "What do you think of the future?" she asked curiously. She wanted to know what kind of future he saw before and after the end. Well...maybe it would be the end of everyone being together, but not the end of their lives. So...it wasn't really the 'end'. Right? After a moment's silence, Saionna thought of something and then smiled, looking at Batsu. "What's your favorite thing to eat for dinner?" She waited for his answer. "Then I want that for dinner," she told him with a smile.

He thought the future was unpredictable and bleak. "I think that once madness is contained, the future will be brighter," he answered. "The world wasn't always this dark. There was a time where the skies were brighter and the animals flourished across the lands." He stopped when she asked what his favorite meal was. "Grilled meat." He didn't really care if it was cooked or not, but for the sake of being normal, he are things cooked. Batsu smiled when Saionna said she wanted that for dinner. He'd let Hunter know when they got back. "How do you see the future, Saionna?"

"...maybe," Saionna said lightly. She wasn't sure if she believed that. She had different thoughts about Madness. "It...it wasn't?" she asked, aqua blue eyes looking towards the red haired male. "They did?" The thought of there being tons of animals everywhere...it was weird. Birds in the sky that weren't infected? Little land animals that didn't attack without provocation? Saionna tilted her head and looked down. It was...a weird thought. Madness was all she knew. She seemed to shrink when Batsu asked how she saw the future. "Um..." She wanted to be bright and cheerful for Batsu, but she wasn't sure about the future. It was a new concept to her. She glanced to Batsu before looking down as if guilty of something. "What if...what if we can't contain it?" she asked, shifting lightly where she stood. "What if...Madness isn't really...unnatural?" She glanced to him before quickly looking back down. "What...if...it's so hard to contain because...this is how everything naturally is..?" What if this was how nature was really supposed to be? She didn't understand how there had been a time when people didn't kill other people or when animals didn't attack out of the blue. Saionna's gaze quickly shot to in front of her when she heard shifting grass, only for a bunny to hop in front of them several feet away. Aqua blue eyes stared at it for a moment before their owner quickly moved behind Batsu. Saionna pressed her face to the back of Batsu's shoulder, hiding the creature from her view and holding onto his arm. "Don't let me hurt it," she squeaked, her grip tight on him. She didn't want to hurt it, but there was something in her that did. She didn't want that side to win.

Admittedly the thought had crossed his mind, but what good would it do to think in such a way? His wings shifted lightly and he shook his head. "If you're right, then maybe it's time for the world to start anew." Humans had done many wrongs and madness gave power to creatures not humans. It made them stronger and turned the predators into prey. The thought was almost disturbing. Could Saionna be right? Could madness be natural? A way to wipe out the human race and give way a new beginning? He was sort of okay with the theory. After all, look what the Onihana had done. They'd toyed with souls and thus he'd been born. His wings dropped, he was suddenly tired. He paused when Saionna was suddenly behind him, gripping his arm. He'd almost turned on her in defense, but stopped short when he saw the bunny and was told to keep it safe. Batsu was confused and it showed on his face. Why did she think it was a danger to such an innocent creature? He sensed no madness, so why? "It's okay, Saionna. No need to hurt it. It's not a threat."

Saionna kept her face buried against Batsu's shoulder so she didn't have to look at the creature. It didn't have Madness in it, she knew that. But...she wondered if maybe that was why she wanted to hurt it. There was still Madness in her. She knew it. She felt it. She was sure Batsu knew it too. But she was afraid that Madness wasn't the thing controlling her actions. She was born of Madness, so what if she was Madness? What if that was just how her mind and body functioned? The red haired female kept her grip on Batsu's arm and shook her head. "I knoooww," she whined quietly when Batsu told her it wasn't a threat. "I don't...want to hurt it, but...but I do want to hurt it," she said quietly, guilt and a small bit of fear in her voice. She was afraid of hurting something that wasn't a threat and then Batsu turning her away. And then the rest of the group would turn her away too. Or...or even kill her. She was afraid. She didn't want to hurt innocent things, and she didn't want to die. "Please don't let me hurt it..."

Batsu looked at the red haired female when she spoke. It surprised him that she was genuinely fearful of her own actions. He nodded lightly. "I understand. " He did. Batsu had been saved from Madness, but there were times where he sincerely wanted to devour souls as he'd done before. The thing was, he'd been that way for so long, that not doing it felt almost wrong. It was a muscle memory that he could not always deny. His eyes shifted to the rabbit and he knelt down to the creature, holding out his hand to it. "Come here," he said calmly. The grey eyed male didn't look to Saionna as he spoke, his eyes on the rabbit. "I would think let you hurt it. I know what you're feeling. The need is there, the want to do something you don't wish to, but you can fight it." Grey eyes shifted and he met her gaze. "We both can fight it together." He smiled at her.

Saionna stayed behind Batsu, cringing as he knelt down to try to get the rabbit to come closer. She swallowed and took a shaky breath, her eyes fearful. She almost took a step back when the bunny cautiously hopped forward, sniffing the air towards Batsu as it did. She chanced a glance down at him when he looked up at her. And then he said they could fight it together. They...they could? "We can...fight it...t...together..?" she asked with a small frown. She was confused, but...thankful. Saionna slowly knelt down next to Batsu, but kept mostly behind him, keeping a nervous hold on his arm. She swallowed. "I...don't have...to hurt it..?"

He had doubts, but they could try. Trying never hurt...much. He supposed thinking like that wouldn't do them any good though. "Yes," he teplied. "We can. It might be difficult. Madness remains within you and...." He was hesitant to finish what he wanted to say. He let out a small sigh. "And what I was before still haunts me. We can figure it out along the way, besides, two is better than one." He looked at the bunny. "No, you don't have to hurt it." He waited until the creature was close and then he gently pet it's fur. "See, it's fine."

Saionna looked at Batsu as he spoke, as if he were telling her something extremely important. He was, though. He was trying to help her. That was important. When he told her that what he used to be was still with him, she looked at him in awe. "A...and you can control it..?" she asked, her aqua and black eyes surprised. Or at least, he was trying to. He was doing a much better job than she was. When he said that they don't have to hurt it, she hesitantly reached her hand out towards the bunny. When her fingers brushed its fur, she tensed a little, but soon relaxed a bit. When she did though, she let out a sigh, and a blue soulmist escaped her clawed fingers on her free hand. She quickly jumped and pulled her hand against her chest, her eyes wide as the bunny ran away. She scrambled to her feet, suddenly looking horrified. "I'm sorry! I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to!" she stuttered quickly, her eyes wide. When the mist escaped, all she could hear was it whispering to Batsu that she was going to kill the creature. She didn't realize that the mist had really been silent, but instead thought that Batsu had heard and maybe thought she'd really been trying to kill it.

"Most of the time," he admitted. Batsu didn't feel the need to be sheepish about admitting such things. It was the truth. He did try and control that urge, and sometimes he needed Cross there to instill some sense into him, but yes, he managed just fine for the most part. He smiled as she knelt and petted the rabbit, but tension ran through him when he saw the mist. He could practically taste the madness, even though it had been for only a brief moment. When Saionna became startled, he stood as well, the rabbit long forgotten. The only thing that crossed his mind was concern for her, but a tiny voice in the darkest corners of his mind thought about how gratifying it would be to put an end to that madness by eating her soul. That way it would be one less creature of madness in the world, and Saionna wouldn't have to fear harming anyone anymore. "No, it's fine. Rabbits can be jumpy." He glanced over his shoulder. "Let's head back. The others have probably come back by now."

"How...how do you do it?" Saionna asked quietly, tense and small at the question. "Do you..." She trailed off. "Does it...hurt...to repress it..?" she asked, aqua eyes glancing to Batsu. It hurt her head to try and control it, honestly. She wanted to tell him that, but she was afraid. There was a lot she was afraid to tell him. But she trusted him more than anyone else. She had saved him and he had saved her. And he was helping her. And for all that, she felt some sort of connection to him. She wanted to believe that he wouldn't hurt her or leave her behind, but the voices insisted that he would. When Batsu told her it was fine, and that rabbits were just jumpy, Saionna concluded that he probably hadn't heard her head voices afterall and was a bit relieved. She swallowed lightly nonetheless. "Mnm...yeah...okay," she said with a nod, taking a step back from where they'd just encountered the rabbit. The creature was...oh, what was the word? It was small, and fluffy and pure looking. She believed the word was...cute. She didn't want to hurt cute things like that. She wanted to help them. Saionna turned to follow Batsu, not quite remembering the path they'd taken to get here in the first place.

How did he do it? Batsu didn't have a direct answer for that, but he had a reason behind trying so hard to ignore the urges. "Usually I remember what my goal is and the position I was in before I got a second chance. I used to be nothing more than just a soul before, and I wandered until hatred consumed me, just like madness consumed these creatures. I had a choice, but they didn't. I hurt a lot of people on my own free will, these creatures are hurting people against their wills and the burden will weigh heavy on them. Then there are wandering souls, lost souls that need refugee before they become turn into something like me. I guess I just keep my focus on the important task at hand to prevent history from repeating itself." He was silent for a moment when questioned if it hurt him to repress the urges. "Not really. I mostly just get hungry." He looked at her. "Why do you ask?" He had a feeling as to why she'd asked such a question, but he'd let her confirm it first. He shifted his wings as they moved through the grass.

Saionna listened to the way Batsu described his own plight. She looked down in confusion for a moment. "You weren't...created from Madness?" she asked finally, glancing to the red haired male beside her. He said he'd been created by hatred, and not Madness. And that he had existed before the hatred had consumed him. So...that meant that they weren't the same? That meant that...maybe Batsu's experience with Madness couldn't help her after all? Miscolored eyes blinked when Batsu said he mostly only got hungry when he repressed the urges to hurt things. Saionna frowned and looked down again when Batsu wondered why she asked. She didn't want to tell him 'no reason', because there was a reason. He probably knew that already. "Er..." She had so many words at her disposal, but suddenly she found herself unable to string a few together to explain to Batsu why she'd asked that question. She took a breath and crossed her arms around herself as she walked. "Because...it hurts me," she said finally, frowning. "Trying to ignore it hurts my head...they just keep getting louder and louder. They yell at me and give me a headache," she told him, not exactly sure if she should explain who 'they' were. Saionna's shoulders fell a bit as they walked. "I want to help you help everyone else, but...if I don't listen to them..." Her aqua and black eyes became sad. "I think maybe...I'm bad. Bad for everything around me..." Saionna stopped walking and the voices came back as whispers, encouraging her to turn and run. She looked to Batsu. "What if I can't help you?" she asked hopelessly. She kept her arms crossed around her, as if she were trying to comfort herself from the idea. She hadn't known warmth or happiness until Batsu and the others had quieted the voices inside her head. She had never known comfort, but suddenly she found herself wishing someone would help her instead of her trying to help them.
