Listening to Ghosts

The World Oyster area is made of many resteraunts in mind of all those with different tastes, both aesthetically and in the gourmet sense. Do you feel like eating Chinese fried rice, Texas steaks, or maybe a french croissant? Perhaps you enjoy the stylings of a 50’s diner, a Seattle coffee house, or even an Irish Pub? Then come on down and chow on some culture!

((Corin Albanesi from: Another Side))

When Corin arrived at the World Oyster his pace slowed to a crawl, he was outside the group of restaurants, undecided on which to pick. His eyes felt dry and tired, he felt exhausted and yet he could not see himself resting soon. Though it was partially due to Anarchy’s presence, it was also because thoughts of his old group members put him at unease.

He looked back for Anarchy, to see what she was doing.

“This place is fine, right?” He looked a little absent; it was difficult to tell if he was looking towards her or beyond.

He was anxious to get inside a building and out of the open, wind and cold.

((AnArchy continued from Another Side))

"Meh. Could do worse." She said, pushing past him. With a dismissive wave she entered the closest place. Nice little coffee house. She smiled.

She took a seat at a nearby table. "Could use a hot chocolate right about now. You don't think they have anything left to make one, do you?" She asked.

The trip had been in silence. Too much distrust, well placed yet abundant. Even now it was clear this boy had no intention of letting his guard down.

Not with the games, this one.

She smiled again.

But sooner or later, mistakes are made. She knew that firsthand. She knew that very well.

She decided to just see if the tools to make what she wanted were available. She got up and went behind the counter. Everything seemed in order. "And here people told me I'd never work as a barista. Wrong!" She laughed and began gathering the fixings for her chocolate.

"So... what do you suppose we do? I mean, it's obvious this won't last long. But do you want to try and make it work or shall we just let it go down as it goes?" She said as she made her drink.

She fixed it as best she could, and when it was done she took a sip. Perfect.

"I mean, I think it could be fun either way. But what do you think?" She grinned.

“I’m surprised you found anything, Bunny had no luck.” He seated himself and placed the rifle on his lap as she worked on her chocolate, he didn’t want any and he’d stayed quiet until then. To an extent, he felt like he didn’t have the right to say Bunny’s name after abandoning her, so it rolled off his tongue with hesitation. It was now that his appetite was gone and it felt like his belly was full of foam, at the rate that he was skipping meals he was sure to be losing weight. His eyes flicked to the side a moment as he thought about what she said.

“Yeah, it probably won’t, but I don’t get what you mean exactly. Let it down as it goes?” He skirted over her barista comment, he knew he had nothing pleasant to say about potential careers and the future as of now. You won’t really, his mind chimed in, just like I won’t do baseball or dentistry.

“You already are thinking about leaving, though?” He brought a hand to his mouth and started chewing on his thumbnail, his eyes shifting as he was obviously thinking intently about something now that her comments fired up the cogs in his head. Soon to be alone again, he felt.

And a moment later he looked up at her, his eyes narrowed and his once neutral expression became subtly unsettled.

“What were you thinking about making it work?”

"Oh, you know, that thing uneasy allynemies do." She took another sip. "Like hesitate before sharing supplies, nervously look out for each other while expecting betrayal, and try to decide if it's best to shoot your ally when they least expect it or just quietly slit their throat as they sleep." Another sip.

"You know, fun stuff."

She laughed.

"I jest of course, but I don't know if you've got a killer instinct. And you don't know if I've killed. Inevitably," one last sip, "a confrontation will ensue. Violent or not. Do we delay that or get it over with now? Personally I want to avoid a violent confrontation." She put the cup down.

"My last cost me the use of my arm. I hate to imagine what my next will cost me. My life perhaps?"

((Anzu Sakamoto: Continued from ...And I'm Her Self-Loathing and Despair, She Found Wrath))

Anzu hadn't planned on another confrontation, not tonight. All she had wanted was to find a quiet, relatively warm corner to sleep in. After seeing signs of life from inside, Anzu had been ready to write the coffeeshop off, (and of course it was a fucking coffeeshop) but she just had to catch a glimpse of the unfamiliar girl's amber bandana.

Her original apathy towards her team still remained, but Anzu had figured that it couldn't hurt to have a guaranteed friendly around to watch your back. So she had quietly opened the door, only to hear the tail end of the girl"s rant.

It was obvious already that the girl (a Davison kid, probably) had a flair for the dramatic. A natural tendency to attract the spotlight, to revel in it. The type who was born for the camera's attention, the type that SOTF was built on. Already, Anzu loathed her.

Anastasia wasn't alone in the room. Corin was seated nearby as well. He was an okay guy, from what Anzu knew of him. Also armed with a rifle, which was more important at the moment. Still, she couldn't stop herself from glaring at Anastasia.

"What the fuck is wrong with you?"

“Jesus Christ, you really … I don’t know.” He wanted to snap at Anarchy, but held back a torrent of heated words as one of his hands tightened its grip on the rifle. An uneasy and aggressive ‘hah’ parting from his lips, as she started touching all his nerves. Betrayal was not an unexpected thing, but in his current state he didn’t want to hear any of it. But another thing that bothered him was the way that he thought Anarchy was full of it.

As he finished that sentence he heard another voice and stood up from his chair, in his hurry he knocked his seat back and it toppled over – but he was able to remain steady. He looked startled and for a moment the rifle almost raised up. Before an expression of recognition crossed his features, he knew Anzu in passing from school. At the very least she saved him from answering questions he didn’t want to, and asked one that he was thinking himself, thank you Anzu.

But then he realised that they had matching bandanas, and could see his little partnership with Anarchy crumbling with Anzu’s presence. Though, he guessed that there wasn’t really one to begin with for her to pull apart. It would be a lie to say that he didn’t want to be rid of Anarchy, but he wasn’t looking forward to the quiet that would be filling the space she once occupied.

“Maybe we should part before the end of the night after all?” He asked aloud while looking at Anzu.

There wasn’t much else to do besides pressing onto the point. He wondered though if Anzu had anything to say about it.

The newcomer presented a question. The response was obvious. She replied, after a moment to process the best way to respond.

"Everything. I'm crazy. Haven't I made that clear?" She cleared her throat.

She returned her attention to Corin.

"If you think it best we part ways, then so be it. I don't blame you for avoiding danger, even if it might have been fun."

Once more to the interloper.

"As for you, what will you do? Help him? Join me? Go it alone? We all have a choice to make here. Mine will be made whenever my shattered rationality comes around."

Things could have went worse. Corin knocked his chair over in his surprise, but didn't see fit to point his gun at Anzu, which was much appreciated. Probably hadn't been the best of ideas to startle a guy with a rifle, but Anastasia continued to entirely justify Anzu's rage at her.

Crazy? No, she was just a bitch that knew how to be "insane" in an interesting way. Was she fucking fooling anyone with her "shattered rationality" bullshit? The audience loved an offbeat, quirky girl, and Anastasia seemed fully intent on milking her image for all it was worth.

Anzu was having none of that shit, though. She turned to Corin. "How's about we find somewhere else, leave that one to rant at the cameras or whatever the hell she's into?"

Corin may not have exactly been a friend, but Anzu knew him at the least, and didn't much fancy her chances if she stayed alone for too much longer. Someone willing to put up with Anastasia for more than a few minutes was also someone likely desperate for company.

His features changed to disbelief, he had half expected her to take the girl that was assigned to her, not the boy who wore an opposing team colour. There was a little bit of relief that welled up inside his chest, mingling with the feelings of pity for Anastasia after what he was about to do. Anastasia was too crazy for him to gamble on now that a ‘safer’ option showed up; he reasoned that it was the most logical way. But part of his minded butted in; telling him the most logical way was to abandon both like he was intending to do just moments ago. For a fleeting second he considered that option, but it was overridden by his desire for company.

He told himself that he’d done enough for Anarchy anyway, if it weren’t for him she’d still be resting in the dark. He understood and didn’t blame Anzu for not wanting to take Anarchy either, and though he wanted to believe that taking both was an option he knew better than that. From his experience larger groups were just harder to handle anyway.

But in the end these thoughts still didn’t shield him from the feeling that he was walking away from someone that probably needed him. But he had done it once before, even in the same area.

He finally nodded in answer to Anzu, a small tired grunt of agreement coming from his mouth.

“Yeah, I would like to join you.”

Corin didn’t try to look at Anarchy’s expression as Anzu easily swayed him away, as he started to move away to join her. But he didn’t stand close to her; there was still a wall of caution between them. For now he had to ignore that feeling of pity that was burning beneath his skin. For a time it felt like he should say something else to Anarchy, but instead only painful silence came from him.

AnArchy feigned insult at Anzu's dismissal of her. "Ow. I'm right here you know." She looked at Corin. "Caution is only a part. Action is the other. But you won't get far missing one."

She smiled.

She blinked, and when she opened her eyes again she blinked again in confusion.

"What? What are you doing here? How?" She was at a loss for words.

Darling smiled and waved at her.

"Uh, how many of us are here right now? Three right? Right?" She asked the other two, nervously.

He shrugged. She laughed nervously. "I mean, no one followed you or anything, right teammate?"

Not so fun when you're not in control of your little world, is it?

You!

Yes, me. Me, me, me.

Me too.

It was too much. She couldn't deal with this. Push through the insanity. Ignore the unreal and focus on the material.

"I, uh, ask because I want to be sure we're not attacked or something. Thought I saw something in my peripheral vision, you see." She nervously chuckled.

Play crazy while you can. With me back I bringing true insanity with me.

And these hallucinations won't go away?

Darling looked right at her and nodded.

Yeah. Until I'm me again. Until I regain control over my own self, my own being. Fragmented reality and memory will bleed together until I'm back in control.

You gave it up. I'm not giving it back. Mine. My desires. My will.

Then deal with this.

"I will. I will deal with it thank you!"

He wanted to tell her off, what did she know about his actions? He thought. His mouth remained glued shut though. He side glanced Anarchy, she was making him uncomfortable for a number of reasons. He wanted to go; he wanted to go at that moment.

He did wonder if anyone came along with Anzu though, if someone was waiting outside in the dark past his line of vision. But then he wondered if it was Anarchy’s way of psyching them out to stay behind, he couldn’t really tell. He brought a hand to his face; he really didn’t have the mental capacity to deal with this right now. She was talking to herself, he couldn’t think of it as anything other than sad, whether she was acting or not. But he stood there and quietly watched as she seemed to unravel in front of him.

“Anzu, let’s just get going, please.” He half pleaded in a quiet voice, slowly stepping back and adjusting his grip on the rifle door as Anarchy started to say something about dealing with something.

He wondered if that something was them, or if it was just inane babble.

Anzu was taken aback, for a moment. Anastasia had most definitely abandoned all pretenses of being "sane", but this was different than her previous dramatic gestures. Now, she was just utterly pathetic. It was no doubt some sort of ploy to try and guilt Anzu and Corin into sticking around longer. Well, there was no fucking way that Anzu was falling for that kind of shit. She nodded to Corin. "No objections here."

She started walking towards the door, turning her back on Anastasia. Hopefully she'd be fine on her own, listening to the voices, the demons, or the ghosts, whatever great cosmic force she was blaming for her own inadequacy. In any case, she didn't seem like a threat, even discounting the fact that she was a teammate.

Once again, Anzu walked out into the cold night.

((Anzu Sakamoto: Continued in and the wind died, too.))

It all went to shit. She was going to be alone again. And this time she really didn't want to be. Maybe she ought to have her fun right now? He was there after all, still just standing there.

She was anticipating drinking his blood. She reached for the sword. A hand stopped her. She turned to glare at the interloper. Sebastien met her gaze, tightening his grip.

Guilt is a powerful force isn't it? The weight of our sins is incredible right?

Let go of me. NOW.

The ghost didn't obey. In fact his grip got even tighter. It actually hurt.

No. I am not insane. I will not be held by mute ghosts! She struggled to break free.

Laughter filled the room. People she had called friends, everyone and all of them mocking her for being unable to loose the grip of one dead boy.

But the reality was she just stood there trembling and looking down at the ground.

"Go away. Just go away. I don't want you HERE!" She snarled. To the apparitions, to Corin. To everybody watching her unravel further.

"Just fucking leave. Leave me alone."

That crushing despair setting in? Good. Soon you won't be able to fight back. I'm taking back my mind and body. Reason, not desire. Intellect, not instinct.

I'll die first. You'll see. You'll also see you stupid spirits.

Alert! Mental contamination at 'way past holy shit' percent. Recommend abandon crazy train and brace for impact! Tuck and roll woman. Tuck and roll!

Shut up!

Give up control!

NEVER!
