  • Revenge or a headache ... ?

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-19-2002 08:18 PM:
    Revenge or a headache ... ?

    Lina paced along the hallways, deep in thought. She brushed back her dark-blood red hair, and grumbled a little when most of it came flying back in her face. Her ice blue eyes shimmered a little, her black dress dragging below her feet.

    Get him out of your head Lina ...

    Her fiancee was coming into her mind over and over again. Slight pain waves sank in and out of her brain constantly. Her index and point finger, gently masaged her forehead. Either she was seriously sick or her fiancee's death was going to be haunting her for the rest of her life with headaches ...

    Needa ... sit ... down ..

    Lina found a dark corner ... a perfect corner. She at first leaned against the wall, her gaze dropping to the floor. More screaming, yelling and running was being heard in her mind ... She was afraid to touch anyone, for they'd probably waste away like her fiancee did.

    Mm's ... the same old circle.

    She gently slid down the wall, landing on her rear. Lina curled herself up into a small figure-like ball. She could feel the headache forcing it's way in ... she could feel herself wanting to cry, but forcing herself not to ... Once again ... Her fiancee was getting his revenge.

    *Passing through the hallway that Xeno was beginning to grow accustom to, he handled his hair and pushed it back. As this movement occurred he then moved his attention to 'The Lady in Red'. She didn't seem well. He stood a few feet away from her and asked:*

    "Excuse me. Are you all right? Do you want me to get help?"

    *He saw her struggling with her head. Now this was not something Xenodoros saw every day. Again he asked*

    "Do you need help?"

    Lina jerked her head up, feeling the pain waves to her head leaving her a bit. Strands of her hair were dangling infront of her face, her eyes flashed a sudden red ...

    " .... Umm. I'm okay ... just thinking a bit too hard. It's alright, I'm fine ... I think."

    She was breathing rather hoarsly, and sweat was practically racing down her face and body. She took minor glances to the stranger, and dropped them back to the floor ...

    *Xenodoros did not believe the words of the young lady since she seemed to struggle with whatever she tried to do. Xenodoros saw her sweaty face. Immediatly he knew that things were wrong. He then said:*

    "No you're not all right... Do you want me to bring you some water or something?"

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-20-2002 03:48 PM:

    "Hon, slow down, it's ok !"

    Lina wanted to curl herself into a smaller ball so that she wouldn't be noticed by anyone when trying to figure out her own damn problems. She gently rubbed the sweat from her forehead with the back of her hand.

    "I'm alright ... A glass of water won't be needed, but thanks for caring."

    She gave a gentle smile to the stranger, trying to pick herself up. Her knees were failing her a bit, but she managed to stand up straight instantly.

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-20-2002 06:55 PM:

    "Let me say that you don't look that well to me. I don't want to feel guilty for leaving a young lady on the floor helpless. Especially here in The Sith Empire."

    *Xenodoros approached her as he saw her get up. He looked at the woman, and extended his arm as his lips opened to say:*

    "I am Xenodoros Stormrider, at your service."

    *As he held his hand in front of him, he looked at the rare eyes the woman had. But having rare eyes was not a bad thing.*

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-21-2002 01:34 PM:

    Lina smiled a bit, and nodded to Xenodros .. he seemed nice enough.

    "Umm, I'm Lina Alexis Capulet .. shortly Lina though."

    She saw his extended arm, trying to ignore it. The thought of him wasting away as well, also came to her mind not too shortly. Another pain wave hit her head, a silent groan left her lips. She locked her arms around her back, and dropped her gaze to the floor, trying to make herself seem expression-less to the sudden pain jolt to her head.

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-21-2002 05:14 PM:

    *Having his hand being ignored, he didn't care. Xeno knew that something was disturbing her. Her gestures and her face showed signs of something wrong. Xeno then came back to the conversation and said:*

    "Nice to meet you.... Lina."

    *An akward silence filled the hallway, and Xeno broke it by saying:*

    "So where are you heading off to? Didn't seem like you were doing much here..."

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-21-2002 05:19 PM:

    "Just walkin' ... and thinking a little."

    Lina gently shrugged, her face giving no expression. She didn't wish to tell him the entire truth of the matter .. she decided to carry on the conversation just to be nice.

    "Umm ... what about you ?"

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-22-2002 11:23 PM:

    "Just travelling around. you never know what you can find in these mysterious hallways"

    *Xeno's sarcastic expression kicked in that last word. It had seemed that Xenodoros needed 'someone' to talk to; even if it was a complete stranger. Xenodoros had always lived a solitary life, but it didn't hurt to talk to a few people to get a few things off of his mind. The young man then told her:*

    "How about you accompany in this little walk. Just to clear my mind from the training I've been doing."

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-23-2002 12:22 PM:

    Lina chuckled a little at the man's sarcasm, and smiled a little.

    "Umm .. sure, I guess I could use some company just to get my mind off .. someone."

    She coughed a little, trying to find the strength to walk, feeling her knees getting a little heavy on her.

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-23-2002 08:56 PM:

    *Xeno motioned her to go his way, and began to walk around. As he walked, he began to look straight ahead. He then turned his head to face hers and said:*

    "I'm only a Sith Disciple and my Master's tough enough as it is. And I heard it gets harder... "

    *Wondering what rank she was in, Xeno didn't bother in asking the lady.*

    "So tell me, what rank are you in here at The Sith Empire?"

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-24-2002 12:31 PM:

    She listened to him carefully as she could, for her head was throbbing her so. Lina felt her legs drag a bit weakly, due to her weak knees.

    "I'm a Disciple like you, and apprentice to the beautiful and talented Dara Shadowtide ... she gives me scars in places I never thought possible."

    She made the effort to laugh at her small yet true joke. Maybe a little talking and walking was doing her head good .. just not to her knees. She glanced up at Xeno, smiling, her ice blue eyes shimmering every now and then, trying to keep up the conversation he started.

    "Who's your master ?"

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-24-2002 08:31 PM:

    "Hehe. ...places you never thought possible...", Xenodoros said to himself, trying not to laugh too much.

    *Xenodoros walked in a slow pace since it seemed Lina was dragging herself to walk. Hearing her question he quickly answered.*

    "My Master? My Master is good ol' Daegal Murdoch. He's all right. Tough, but that's how he's supposed to be. Dara's a pretty hard Master to get nowadays. She has too many apprentices."

    *Xenodoros kept walking, observing her dragging her legs around.*

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-25-2002 12:33 PM:

    Lina chuckled some, trying to get her legs to keep up.

    "She had an opening, luckily. Daegal seems nice, I've always admired him, just never given the thought of him being my master."

    She glanced at Xenodoros, who seemed to be observing her for some odd reason.

    "Umm ... something wrong ? You keep staring at my legs .. Uh, well, the way my legs are dragging .. I mean .. damn that didn't come out right."

    Lina slapped herself in the forehead, finding her cheeks burning red of embarrassment, but chuckled a little bit, trying to laugh out her mistake.

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-25-2002 09:24 PM:

    *Xenodoros quirked an eyebrow as he began to chuckle a little. It seemed that Lina herself had noticed that she was not walking the right way. Xeno looked at Lina turn red and said:*

    "You're legs are fine - I mean, are you sure you don't want to sit down or something?"

    *Xenodoros turned away trying not to laugh too much at his own misinterpretation.*

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-26-2002 01:38 PM:

    Lina laughed harder then she expected to. Her confidence was getting a bit bigger now, and she felt more comfortable around Xeno.

    "I guess we're both fumbling on our words today ... and no thanks, I'm alright walking."

    She couldn't help but smirk, turning her gaze back to Xeno, who was trying to hide his.

    "Umm .. and thanks for the compliment by the way."

    She giggled, trying to hide the blush that was creeping around the rims of her cheeks. She clasped her hand over her mouth trying not to laugh too hard over the incident again.

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-27-2002 12:25 AM:

    *Turning around to get some air, Xenodoros slowly stopped laughing and held one hand over his mouth to hide his smile. The stranger was beginning to feel like a friend, and Xenodoros was satisfied with this.*

    "Uh... You're welcome?"

    *Xenodoros' tone had more life in it as he said this. Xenodoros kept walking and began to speak some more*

    "So how's life for you here at The Sith Empire?"

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-27-2002 01:38 PM:

    "S'okay I guess ... making a lot of new friends, earning a ton of bruises and learning new things. Mainly it's good .. compared to the headaches I get every now and then."

    She smiled, slowly brushing back some of her red strands of hair. Her legs were still dragging a bit, due to the pain she had earlier ... why didn't it leave her ?

    "What about you ?" She canted her head a bit, and gave him another gentle smile, feeling a bit more comfortable herself.

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-27-2002 03:06 PM:

    "Life here is better than living in loneliness in a world where nobody cares... To me, it is an honor to be part of The Sith Empire. So I feel great here."

    *Xenodoros' tone lowering a bit, remembering the people who neglected him. The times he needed someone, nobody paid attention. Though here, Xeno was beginning to learn how to take out those that brought suffering to his life.*

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-28-2002 10:04 PM:

    "Mmm ... it's understandable. But Xeno ... if you need anybody, I'm here, y'know ? Even if I wasn't your friend, I'd still listen .. but hey .. the world's not full of perfect people who'll listen. I hate it too ... but I'll always listen, so if you have a problem, just call my name, I'll be there, etc. Y'know ... just be like ... LINA CAPULET, get your butt down here this instant !"

    She laughed, clasping her hand over her mouth, trying not to do so too loud. She smiled, her ice blue eyes turning a little lighter.

    "Just thought I'd .. lighten the moment, heh ?"

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-28-2002 10:40 PM:

    *Xenodoros smiled at Lina. It was the first time someone actually -wanted- to be a listener. He laughed a bit at her comment, and then said:*

    "Thank you very much. I really appreciate your concern. Even if I haven't known you for long, you seem like a person who will be there. If YOU ever need listening I'm right here too."

    *Xenodoros said that in a happier tone. He felt a bit more relieved than usual. It was very rare for Xenodoros to be nice to a person, but Lina seemed to have passed through that barrier.*

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-28-2002 10:47 PM:

    "Of course .. I could use someone like you."

    She smiled a little a bit, canting her head to the side. Another laugh escaping her lips.

    "It's kinda strange though ... are you usually this nice to people ? You don't seem like the type ?"

    Lina had said this as if she read his mind, which she did, but not meaning to ... she instead kept quiet about it, and listened once again to Xeno.

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-29-2002 09:20 PM:

    Of course .. I could use someone like you.

    *Xenodoros froze then looked at Lina. As he saw her laughing a bit, he smiled. He sooner replied to her with a more serious tone.*

    "I'm not this nice to strangers, but you've made my day. It seems that I tend to be too serious. That is who I am I suppose. You lit up my day!"

    *Xenodoros looked at her, and seemed to connect best with her than any other person around there. But Xenodoros was also looking at himself. His mind, still haunted by dark memories.*

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 07-30-2002 12:26 PM:

    Lina giggled some, glancing back at Xeno. Feeling her knees beginning to keep up with her now.

    "Well, that's good to hear for once."

    She slowly crossed her arms over her chest while walking along side of him. Her thoughts once again trailed off, as she felt her body becoming a bit heavy ... She then haulted suddenly, her mind blank. Her mouth opened a bit, but no words bothered to come out ...

    " .... "

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 07-30-2002 09:48 PM:

    *Xenodoros observed Lina as she began to trail off again. Seeing her struggle with the words, he tapped her back and said:*


    Posted by LinaCapulet on 08-01-2002 12:44 PM:

    Lina couldn't help but smirk silently.

    "No, no ... just thinking .."

    Her words trailed off ..

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 08-02-2002 12:27 AM:

    *Xeno's spherical eyes moved up and down to observe Lina. She seemed to be having trouble with her movements. Xenodoros slowly quirked a brow and said:*

    "Don't mind me asking... but what are you thinking about?"

    Posted by LinaCapulet on 08-02-2002 04:01 PM:

    "My fiancee." Lina said it plainly, knowing she could trust Xeno now.

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 08-02-2002 11:33 PM:

    *Surprised by her response, Xeno stopped walking and said:*

    "Fiancée?! I thought..."

    *He stopped speaking and continued to walk. He took a deep breath and said:*

    "I didn't know you had a fiancée"

    Posted by Lina Capulet on 08-04-2002 03:43 PM:

    "Be happy and relax, the *******'s dead. Besides, even he found us like this, he'd kick my *** .. not yours."

    Lina said this with a non-humourus tone.

    "What'd you think ... ?"

    It took her moments to realize what Xeno didn't finish saying.

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 08-04-2002 09:14 PM:

    "No, err... no, I wouldn't be afraid of him. I was just surprised you HAD a fiancée."

    Xenodoros' tone lowered itself a little. His legs were beginning to feel tired. His eyes paused as he directed them towards Lina's. He took his hands and put them together. He then said:

    "Why don't we sit down... and talk about it?"

    Posted by Lina Capulet on 08-05-2002 10:47 AM:

    Sit down and talk about it ?

    Lina noticed Xeno feeling tired, and how his knees were also getting a little weak. She smiled gently, trying to ignore the fact that the conversation would soon be about her dead husband.

    "Umm ... heh, sure. Why not ?"

    Posted by Xenodoros Stormrider on 08-05-2002 07:55 PM:

    "How about we go to Rama's so I can buy you a drink?", Xeno paused for a moment to take a look at her expression.

    She seemed nervous when she mentioned her fiancée. Xeno then asked her:

    "That is... if you're comfortable with it..."

    Posted by Lina Capulet on 08-17-2002 09:30 AM:

    "Yeah .. sure."
