The color completely drained from Mika's face.  What had she gotten herself into, had she really needed to come back to explore this place.  She shook her head quickly dislodging the should have thoughts.  She looked at Hunter willing them to continue on.  "Will you know if it gets close?  All I pick up on in here is feelings of being watched every so often."  Her whisper was soft, but obviously distraught.

these thoughts run through my head, over and over

He nodded his head. The little boy looked as if he wanted to comfort Mika, but couldn't figure out how to do so. He gestured with a jerk of his head for her to open the door. His little boy eyes darted around, seeming very aware. It was sad that a child had to fear such things.

Mika's eyes filled with a sad look at the boys fear.  She understood his fear, she spent her childhood surrounded by it between her father and the orphanage.  She understood what he was asking her to do.  She opened the door as slowly and quietly as she could.  She peered her head through the door cautiously, looking to see if she could see anything.  She wanted to say something but feared speaking would draw whatever was after her closer.

As she peers around, there is nothing but dancing shadow, and heavy silence. He simply passes through the door, and awaits her on the other side. He is peering around very cautiously. He waits for Mika to start down the stairs ahead of him, moving like a sentry behind her to guard her back. It's the sort of action that is awe inspiring and sad. A boy so young, willing to protect.

The stairwell's shadows flung themselves around, as if somewhere, a candle was lit whose flame swayed and moved. That heavy silence settled about the shoulders like an uncomfortable mantle.

Mika continued down the stairs keeping an eye on the dancing shadows.  Despite her uneasy feelings in the stairwell the fact that hunter was protecting her calmed her nerves a bit.  As they continued she whispered to him "how far do we need to go." She still wasn't fond of the stairs.

He breathes the barest sound of a whisper to her. "The first floor is safer, I think. We will go there." They continued to walk, the only sound the light scrape of Mika's footsteps. Descending down the stairs, it got dark and darker. At a certain point, Hunter holds his hand up, and a light shines from his palm to guide Mika's way safely.

They reach the door, and he shoves his head through the door to look around. He pulls it back out, and steps away, gesturing her to proceed him.

Mika nods at the boys gesture.  She opens the door quietly and walks through to the hallway.  Her heart rate slows a fraction leaving the stairwell behind.  I hope we don't need to go back in there again. she whispered to herself in her head.  She waited to Hunter to come through and lead the way.

Hunter stepped through the door, and the moment he cleared to the other side of it, his form changed. No longer a little boy of 7 or 8 with a teddy bear, he became a man of 20 with a firearm that didn't look wholly substantial. Mika could guess that it wouldn't harm her, but another ghost? If he knew how to use it, he could certainly take one out. Or a dozen.

He's dressed in dark jeans and a vaguely torn up long sleeved green sweater. It looks like this shirt has seen it's run ins with a blade of some sort. Most of the rips are on the arms, aside from one, which is centered over his abdomen.

He stands approximately 5'10, his black hair offset by piercing leaf green eyes. He has the remnants of a tan, the same way he'd had when he'd died. He looked rangy and lean. He also appeared honed down the way a fighter would be.

He steps in front of her, moving to act as a shield for her nearly automatically, peering this way and that down the halls. After a moment of listening and his eyes looking deeply, he gives a nod. "All is quiet. We can move on now." It's clear he's waiting to see her reaction to what just happened. The man wondered if she even remembered him.

Mika stared at Hunter.  Her heart had stopped for a moment at the change in him.  It had shocked her, but she couldn't stop staring at him.  There was something so familiar about him, so safe, so warm.  His shielding her just made her heart beat a little faster.  Why does this feel so familiar, she asked herself.  "I swear it's like I know him.  I have to, he's just so...." her mind trailed off still captivated by the man standing in front of her.  She took a deep breath trying to regain some composure, she didn't normally act like this.  She took a step up behind him, and whispered, "Okay, I'll follow you." She stared into those green eyes searching them, while searching her own mind.  She swore she could be lost in those eyes.

He offers his hand for her to hold in a silent gesture. He looks about to say something, but changes his mind. His eyes linger on hers for a moment longer than they need to. "Come this way with me, little angel. There's a safe room this way. We'll go there, and figure out how we should get you out of here." They seem to be moving off down the left hand hallway.

There is something so familiar about the way that he moves, but also about his body shifting minutely toward perceived possibilities of danger. Papers ruffle on the floor, and he'd moved her behind him, a hand on his gun in a flash of motion. Protecting her seems paramount.

As he gazed into her eyes it just made Mika feel safer., she had been in no rush herself to break the stare  She knew there was something in her mind that knew him, but her recent trauma's and rapid recollection of her life before the orphanage had made the past difficult to remember at times.  She noticed the hesitation in saying something to her, but it wasn't her way to push people to tell her what was on their mind.  However when he called her "Little angel" that had stuck a cord.  Normally names people called her induced fear and terror, although the person most likely to call her something other than Mika at this point was her father.  Little angel however seemed soothing.  The words hit her ears and she was instantly calmer, and even more drawn to Hunter.

The way he was intent on protecting her was something special.  She didn't fight it at all.  If he wanted to make sure she was safe she would let him.  She felt safe with him.  She continued to follow him to the safe room as her mind searched for answers.

Footsteps pattered in a hallway behind them, but out of view. The fact that they're loud enough to be heard didn't bode well. A thing Hunter seems to realize. He recognizes whatever it is. He isn't alarmed enough for it to be the big baddie. But he's still not precisely happy.

He moves to a door located off the hallway, opening it and pulling Mika inside. It's a closet. Dark and silent. Those footsteps were coming closer. But the door was shut tight. In an odd movement, she's pulled between his body and the wall, his form creating a shelter for her more petite one. He does not touch her inappropriately, and actually keeps the contact extremely chaste, despite the very intimacy of how they stood.

The reason for this is clear when the door opens. Whatever it was looked inside, audibly sniffing. Mika had a minute to wonder how it couldn't see them. Somewhere in the back of her mind, the way that he is shielding her now is so familiar, moreso than any other thing he's done. His leaf green eyes gazed down at her. Something in his scent is familiar. He smells of the forest, crisp and woodsy. Cedar, sandelwood and a touch of spice beneath it.

Mika keeps her eyes locked on his as whatever is there sniffs the room.  As his actions become more and more familiar to her she starts to remember.  The scent was the biggest trigger though.  It smelled like the air that would waft through the windows of the orphanage.  It had been in the middle of the Adirondack mountains.  The rolling mountains with their lush trees and woods.  She had never been able to fully explore the forests around the orphanage, but the scent was unmistakable.  She wanted to ask Hunter, more than anything, but whatever it was sniffing was still there and she didn't dare make a sound.   She just stayed there, shielded by Hunter feeling that he wouldn't let anything happen to her if he could help it.

The thing sniffed and sniffed, but didn't seem to find what it looked for. It gave a grunt and padded away, the door closing behind it. Hunter remained as he was for a full minute before he moved. A small light glowed from his palm, allowing illumination.

"Looks like we might be camping here for a little bit. I didn't realize that it was already time for the dogs to be on rounds." He shook his head. "Perception of time is so odd here." He now stood about four inches away from her, green eyes once more on her.

He visibly tried not to let his eyes move over her, as if he wanted to memorize who she'd become. It didn't work very well to try and stop it. He'd seen the questions on her face, and would give her time to ask them.

Mika nodded softly, "It's okay, if staying here keeps us from anything particualy unpleasant I don't mind."  Mika took a deep breath as she realized she was staring into his eyes again.  "Hunter?" she started quietly, "I know you don't I?  I know I do." she was convinced.  "You smell like the orphanage, and everything about you seems, so familiar, so safe."  her heart was pounding a bit.  "It's like my head has been in a fog for weeks, ever since I started remembering before the orphanage."  Her eyes found the floor as she looked down ashamed of herself.  Ashamed her deteriorated mental state as of late was making even the memories she was sure of hazy.  "I'm sorry that I have to ask you to make sure my feelings are right, and my mind isn't just playing tricks on me again."
