Can I Be Your Memory? [closed, night, 8/6]
« on: August 06, 2012, 05:19:01 pm »
Night fell, and sleep came for most. Two people slept in their own beds, unknowingly dreaming of one another. Threads tugged lightly within both of them, bound as they were.

From sleep to dream, both fell into a whirlpool of their own memories, those shared. Doubt, fear, shame, and jealousy had begun coloring their bonds vaguely. Magic had bound them, in many ways, painfully. Now, both psyches and souls were set free of earthly bonds.

Flying in the blink of an eye, both find themselves standing together in white marble halls. Torches lit the walls. It doesn't make it a warmer place. It, in fact, makes it appear startlingly cold.


Kaya stood in a white linen double chiton. It fits loosely over her frame, seeming to not reveal much from the front. It is only obvious once viewed from the side that the dress not nearly so modest.

It is clasped together with golden twining knots that looked like thorned roses. The line of her body is clearly shown through in an inch and half of skin. She has similar cuffing around her forearms. Clear tattoos appear on her forearms, two daggers. Her hair is gathered in dark curls on her head, her eyes lined in kohl and her lips tinted. Her sandals laced up her calves, also gold in color. Ivy is twined in her hair. A golden chain wraps her waist, the end dangling along her thigh, another rose ending it.

Her skin is golden olive, her blue green eyes alive with the colors of the Aegean. Most every detail of her form is well manicured and perfectly cared for. There is a polish and pristine quality about her. She looks not unlike a priestess for her mother. Her face is wary. It is also obvious she's not wholly confused about this circumstance. She certainly knows where they are.

Miles was swept into the hall. He was wearing his usual blazer and V-neck, but there were some, let's say, off, things about him. He was taller, for starters, about 6'0'. His glasses were gone, making his shiny brown eyes glow in the hall. He had a tattoo of a spider on his forearm, and his voice was deeper. Much deeper. His once straight hair was once again curly, and he could hear again. By the gods, he could hear.

He looked around the halls, obviously confused about where he was, and what he was doing here. He was confused, until he saw her. His eyes lit up, and his heart started to beat faster. He didn't say anything, as he didn't think he was supposed to, but every so often, his eyes would wander back to Kaya.

She could feel his eyes on her. Here, in what amounted to a dream, it makes her feel less nervous and anxious. It's acceptable now. Dreams were mutable, like the open water. The rules weren't the same in dreams. Hypnos followed his own drum.

Her own eyes lifted to his, looking back at him. She can hear his heart beating faster, and had watched his pupils dilate. She looked around slowly, still cautious. This place would never be one of her favorite places. She held out her hand to him, inviting him to her side. She waited for his questions. Dream Kaya is far more goddess, and far less teenager.

When she put her hand out, he took it, slowly, but he took it. His brown eyes locked on hers. He had a couple of questions, but he was only going to ask one.

"Where are we?" He asked. He was nervous, but Kaya made that nervousness dwindle.

Her ocean eyes looked back at him. "We're in the Halls of the Fates." She watched him hesitate to take her hand, and she tilted her head questioningly. He'd never hesitated that way before. She hid away the sadness that whispered softly to her. Sad that they'd ended up where they were, with him hesitating to take her hand.

Miles realizes that, at the height he is now, he stands nearly a foot above the little goddess. He hadn't realized exactly how tiny she was before. She looked up at him for long moments silently. "We're dreaming, do you know that?" She said softly.

Miles had a look of sadness and confusion on his face. She knew exactly what he was thinking: What led to this?. He hesitated to hold her hand, for goddess' sake. Kaya really was tiny. No wait, he was taller than his usual 5'9.

"I'm dreaming?? Wait, why are we even here?"

She pressed her cheek to his arm. "I don't know why they brought us here. I'm confused, as well." The press of her cheek was both affection and apology. She'd been doing a lot of that lately.

She pulled him slowly down the hall. It's obvious she knows this place well. She looked up at him, eyes softened. "I was dreaming about you. I remember that."

Miles kept his eyes straight. He was in deep thought. "I was back in the abandoned prison. My body had been mutilated. I remember now. But there was something different; After everything settled, you were standing there. You were crying, and you kept saying how sorry you were, and how much you loved me. I don't get it..." He said, his voice quavering. He followed her down the hall.

The symbolism within his dream chilled her to the bone, and those kohl lined eyes were shuttered behind her eyelids, as she hid away how closely it echoed some of her worst fears. Some of the thoughts that had come from all of this.

Her hand tightened on his, though. It's obvious that struck her deep and close. "Not exactly a fairytale, huh?" She asked softly, eyes still shuttered slightly, so it was harder to read her thoughts and feelings.

He shook his head. "It didn't end there. It ended when we were on the roof. After that scream, I blacked out and woke up.. I couldn't hear anything.." He said, tears starting to fall. "It's no fairy tale at all.." He said, giving her hand a squeeze.

Kaya lowered her gaze. She had nothing she could say. She'd apologized, but it wasn't okay. Never would be. Long moments of silence followed, where the little goddess avoided looking the man beside her in the eye.

That silence ends when a voice, musical yet very adult. "Threads woven together, tainted with dismay, jealousy, resentments and distrust. What are children doing meddling with the strands?" It asked. It wasn't said angrily. More, it was said in curiosity.

Miles looked confused. "What is the voice talking about." He asked, looking around. "What strands?"

The voice laughed. "The strands of life, child. Of life, death, path walked and present. Yours have tangled with the little goddess very deeply, and yet, I sense you are not happy, little arachnid. You've woven a tangled web, and have even managed to tangle yourself within it. How do you plan to get yourself out of this one?"

Miles eyes locked with the floor. For once in his life, he had nothing to say. He didn't know what he was going to do, Hell, he doesn't even know why he's here.

In moments, before them stood a woman. She was obviously Matron. The Mother. "I am Lachesis, young spider. Together with my two other sisters, we control the Loom of Life. Clotho, young maiden, weaves the string together. I, Mother, measure and create, and Atropos, Crone, severs and begins anew. We are the Morai. Eternal beings." She said very patiently. This was a woman who had all day.

"Tell me of the web you have built around yourself, young spider. Tell me of your hopes, your dreams, your deepest desires. And the pathways you've taken to get them or not." She told him. And it seemed itwould likely behoove him to speak.
