Hunter's Moon
« on: August 02, 2012, 12:33:08 pm »
Exhaustion overtook Mika, her mind falling to blank space and static, then nothing. She had remained blissfully dormant for half the night, before another warm presence joined her.

No longer did the the place remain blank. Her dream form is picked up in familiar arms, the forest smell enveloping her. He cradles her as if she's something rare and precious to be cherished and protected, but to remain with freedom, as well. Heknows she'll awaken sooneror later. It was only a matter of time.

In her dream Mika's eyes open. It was weird her body felt sluggish even here, in her mind.  "Miyako did a number on me this time." she muttered.  She doesn't even need to look to know who's arms she is in.  She always felt protected when he was around.  The smell of the forest was so nostalgic, so soothing. Her eyes found his and she whispered, "Hi Hunter.  How are you today?"  She rested her head on him.

Pain so familiar and close to the heart

this sleepless night becomes, bitter oblivion
these thoughts run through my head, over and over

The two are moving, but he looks down at her. "Hello, little angel. I'm fine today. I'm also taking you elsewhere, lest the dragon sense me. I do not know him, he does not know me." His shoulder lifted in a something of a shrug. He continued moving. They were no longer in her house.

They'd come to a tree. In the dreamworld, there was more life to the tree. It was healthier, more full, less strangled and sullied. He sat with her in his lap against the tree. "How are you, sweet angel?"

Mika smiled as he carried her to the tree.  She curled up gently in his lap.  "I'm okay." she said softly leaning her head on his shoulder.  "I'm just tired today.  Miyako used everything my body had to give."  She sighed and curled closer.  She looked at the tree, it was beautiful, and made her feel even more at peace.  Jasper would be at home watching her body so she could enjoy her time with Hunter.  "I've missed you." she said quietly.

His eyes had gazed straight out in front of them, but at her words, they fell to her face in surprise. He quickly wiped it from his face. He said lightly. "Why would you miss me, little angel? You have your King. And your very loyal court of friends. I'm simply one of your knights."

His hand came up in automatic gesture, cradling her head. His arms shifted to hold her for her comfort. "Why was Miyako using your body, and why did she use such heavy stores of your energy?"

Mika looked at Hunter, "Just because I have my King and friends, doesn't mean I don't miss my knight when he's not there." she said softly.  She shifted slightly in his arms.  "Miyako took over when Shinji was in trouble." she looked down slightly.  She tapped into Miyako's memories in her dream to be able to explain.  "He was taken by the principal's brother.  She was trying to get the doll that holds Freya's emotions back, and she ran into someone named Jester.  She had to go all out to fight him.  She didn't even get the doll back."  She sighed.  "She was sent back to the school with several broken ribs, and she was thrown through a wall.  Apparently we make a great wrecking ball.  Between her fight and the energy she took to seal me away for it all....It drained both of us."

His face contorts into an expression of distaste. He didn't like what had been done, but he said nothing about it. She was all grown up, and could make her choices. He did say with a very serious look on his face. "Please, sweet angel, promise me that you will rest for a few days before attempting something as dangerous as all that again?"

He carefully hid the wave of dislike that washed through him at her words of having to save Shinji from himself. Hunter carefully asked his next question. "Does your King often make you save him? This is twice now that he has found himself in a situation to require rescue. How did he return from the Underworld, in fact?"

Mika locked her eyes on Hunters, "I certainly don't plan on trying that again for a few days.  I'll be surprised if I can go much further than the bed in that time."  She looked at him seriously, "I didn't plan on being thrown through a wall mind you, Miyako has a mind of her own, and she's stronger than I am."  She sighed, knowing that was true.  Of the two of them, Miyako was stronger.

She looked down and curled up against him again trying to figure out how to answer his other question.  "Shinji....doesn't always need to be rescued.  I don't know how he got himself captured this time.  He was fighting Freya and she dragged him off.  He throws himself into situations trying to protect me or his friends."  She sighed softly,  "I don't even know if he knows how he got out of the Underworld.  He just fell from the ceiling in our house." She shrugged lightly.  "It's actually something I keep wondering about, but he doesn't seem to remember it."

Hunter looked down at her, his brow furrowed slightly. "You King needs to learn his limits. And he needs to respect your own. He must learn that he need not save you from every bump. Sometimes, you can only be a companion along the road. Carrying a loved one through every obstacle may only end in pain and loss. He underestimates you." Hunter says this with no judgement in his voice. It is statement. To him, of fact.

"Your Miyako. She is demon? The demon that lives in your blood?" Her wondering after what happened to Shinji in the Underworld made his face fall to thought. "It is likely that Mnemosyne exacted a price from him to release him." He told her softly.

Mika listened to his words carefully. "In time maybe he'll stop feeling the need to always rescue me." She said softly.  "There are definatelt sometime it would be nice for him to just let me do what I need to do." 

She looked hunter in the eyes, "yes Miyako is the demon that resides in my blood.  She is part of me and yet not entirely.  She has her own consiousness, her own thoughts and feelings.  She is quite a bit different from me personality wise." She said thoughtfully.  His last words had finally hit her "does even he know what the price he paid." She muttered quietly.

His hand filtered through her hair. He found it best not to discuss the boy further. He never wanted her to feel the need to defend him. "It will come in time, or it won't. Choices will be made." Was all he said on the subject.

He nods his head, in deep thought about the entity she'd named Miyako. "If something happens to you, does Miyako die, as well?" He asked quietly. It may have seemed odd for him to ask this, but it's apparent he has his reasons for doing so.

He continued moving his fingers through her hair. "Lady Mnemosyne, Goddess of Memory. He likely knows nothing of the price he paid. But considering the price he did pay, and the price he could have, someone was watching his back while he was down there. The boy was playing with things he should not have been." Hunter shook his head.

"Call to the Devil, and he will come. Offer your life to Death, and he will take it."

Mika thought about his words, and her eyes dropped slightly.  However she didn't really want to talk with Hunter about Shinji anymore unless Hunter brought it up.  She'd rather just enjoy their time together.  She moved to his question, "In that way we are the same.  If I die then Miyako does as well, same in the opposite situation.  Miyako is strong, but there is something that can hurt her easily.  Normally, if something happens to hurt us normally our physical bodies are separate from each other if one is hurt, but not always.  Like when I get hurt Miyako may feel the pain but the wounds aren't on her body.  Unless we are hurt badly."  She shrugged twisting a strand of hair around her finger.

Hunter relaxed with the idea of Miyako. "Good. The demon is bound to the physical limitations that you are. I was worried that she could simply continue without you. Such a thing is dangerous, indeed." He watched her play with her hair, his mouth curved slightly in a bemused smile.

He kissed her forehead. "Tell me what you'd have of me for a day, little angel. I'm here to keep you company, to see you. And yes, to watch over you. I'm sure you are curious about many things. Ask your questions, if you like. I will answer to the best of my ability, but reserve the right to decline. I will not lie to you. Depend on that." He told her, his hand drawing circles over her back.

"That you don't have to worry about, she's stuck with whatever happens to me."  Mika smiled at Hunter as his hand traced her back.  She was glad to have him there with her, she more than enjoyed when he visited.  As her fingers continued to play with the lock of hair her mind raced.  She had to admit there were many questions that she could ask him. 

"I love when you come to see me." she said honestly, she wouldn't lie to him either.  Her eyes wandered to the tree then back to his.  "Where is this place, it's beautiful?"  She said quietly, it was a silly question she would admit, but it was warming her up to being able to ask the questions that were more in her mind.  "You always know when I need you most don't you?  Even now you still watch over me." She murmured keeping her eyes locked on his.  She then thought aloud, "What do you do when I don't see you?"  she was honestly curious.

He smiled slightly at her admission, touching his forehead briefly to hers for a moment. "I am glad you enjoy my company the way that I do yours, sweet angel." He told her simply. "I, too, love my visits with you. You're a bit of warmth in a cold place." He lifted his forehead from hers, kissing where he'd rested just moments before.

"This location is one of my favorite places to come. It is a dream's reflection of, well, a dream. Built of and from one of my own dreams. It came from a memory of mine that I held as a boy. I do not remember more than what it looked like." Memory faded for the dead.

His hand had returned to it's circles. "Yes, sweet angel I always know when you need me. I don't always know why, but I am always aware of when you require me. I'd be a poor knight if I was not. A knight is always aware of his Queen's needs." The fact that she seemed so surprised that he still watched over her struck him.

"I will never willingly stop. I would either need be destroyed, or you would have to ask me to cease. I will not stop of my own accord. No matter the consequences.

As for what I do when you don't see me? Half of the time, I am still with you as a guardian angel. The other half of the time, I am finding information, and keeping myself well educated on the world, it's history and other subjects."
He told her. He seemed to segue away from those consequences he spoke of.
