PostSubject: The Islands   Thu Dec 16, 2010 6:36 pm

The main Island of Siram is known as Civus. The Island is quite like any other you could see; golden beaches, palm trees scattered about, and a flawless view of the magnificent blue ocean. The town central is the main center of the Island, consisting of small shops and markets. The majority of Sirams population exists within this area the town itself, being built on the back of a turtle, can move to just about anywhere. However, it usually tends to stay in one place: Above the kingdom. The buildings are made of magnificent, multi-colored coral, and as such are very appealing to the eye. With its size, the island has a general capacity of about 500 people, give or take. The shops and markets in town look much like the normal houses do; differently colored coral structures. The main island is used as the residential area for the clan, as well as the main shopping and recreational spot for citizens and visitors.

Coeo is often referred to as the “Island of Healing.” Though most members of Siram have at least some Healing abilities, those who have exceptional skill often become professional healers, and work on Coeo. Professional healers are often pursued by outsiders who are in desperate need of a healing, or citizens who were, for whatever reason involved in accidents. There are no residents of Coeo. Only professional healers live on the island, so that someone will be present at all times in the event of an emergency. Farming and fishing are also customary acts on this island. Siram is known for growing its tropical fruits and vegetables. From the island of Coeo, they are grown, and distributed to the other islands, as well as prepared for trade to other villages.

Dae Hasley; Possibly the most revered Island, is the legendary Island of Hasley's Mountain. Since the birth of The Five, the people of Siram have given themselves wholeheartedly to the belief and worship of Halsey (♪ Pronounced; Hail-sai), the one true goddess of Siram, Water Incarnate. It had been told that the great Halsey used to reside in the islands of Siram as none other than an everyday person, whom for the sake of her clan, gave herself to the dark overlord Abjit, who threatened to plague to crystalline waters of Siram, and end all life for the people. Legend told that she traveled to the smaller chain of islands just outside of Siram, stepped foot on the forbidden island, and climbed the climbable mountain; a mountain said to vaporize anyone instantly upon impact, and turn them into the light, refreshing mist that encircled the islands. After reaching the top of the mountain, she met with the one they called Abjit; ready to give her life to save the people. The fact that she had answered the nightmares of Abjit that everyone in the clan dreamed at night, knowing where her fate would end, baffled him. "Why sacrifice your precious life, when the people you are trying to save are too selfish to offer themselves to save you?" She simply replied "Water is peace, serenity, it is healing. I know that each one of us is born of water, are made of water, and hold water in our hearts and souls, as we are one; even myself. So, is it not my duty to do like water would, and create peace?" Irritated by her answer, he cut conversations quickly, and stole the life of the only one willing to give herself purely. And on that mountain top, on that night, Abjit had been destroyed by the purity of the life he had taken. And in the memory of Halsey, their great savior, the life of Siram thrived. Texts known as the Codes of Halsey came into existence after her death, shaping the very existence of the clan of Siram. One of the Legends in the Code, tested and found true, is the fact that if anyone where to set foot on Dae Halsey, ourside of Halsey herself, would dissipate instantly; becoming an addition to the soothing mist that surrounds the island itself. Because of this, only the reincarnates of Halsey herself are allowed to set foot on the island, often coming to the mountain's top for several months at a time to meditate.

Ora Halsey is much like Dae Halsey, in the fact that it is a sacred place in which people come to worship Halsey. However, Ora Halsey is a place in which everyone can come to ask for Halsey's help. The island itself is right off to the side of Dae Halsey, independent temples for worship peppered through the abnormally dense, damp forest. Almost like a rainforest, without the dangerous creatures, and with half of the rain; Ora Halsey is a very spiritual island, one of the most spiritual places in all of Siram, and possibly even Daratan. It is the location of most every ceremony to take place in Siram, including the biannual Initiation ceremony for new Guardians. This island is not meant for common exchanges, and should only be inhabited in times of spiritual need.

All paths on the face of the main island eventually lead to the Pod Station in the center of the town. The Pod Station is the only form of transport for outsiders to travel from the Island, to the Underwater Kingdom. The Station is a blue shaded, transparent, spherical building, the size of a small house. Along the walls of the building, are ten capsule shaped pods. Two attendants are present in the Pod station at all hours, in order to ensure that those needing to travel along them will be able to do so with no issues. The pods are each about the size of a small closet, capable of fitting about five people. They’re made of a strong, clear material, to allow visitors to take in the magnificent view that is the ocean beneath the Island. The wildlife, and corals are astonishing through the royal blue filter that is Sirams waters.

The trip that the pods take, though the mazelike paths under the ocean takes approximately two minutes. During which time, passengers are likely to see various fish, dolphins, whales, or even sharks! Upon their destination, they will see an almost identical station to the one from which they departed. The only difference is, instead of the doors opening to the outside, they open to reveal a corridor, that leads to the grand, crystalline Kingdom of the Royal Family. The corridor leads directly into the main hallway, which breaks off into several main corridors; to the left, the employees of the kingdom's wing, to the right, the visitors wing, and up the stairs, is the royal's wing.

His flight had landed inside the borders of Siram nearly twenty-four hours before the ball was to take place. He sighed lightly as he looked to the man that flew him to the main Isle, he gave him a tip and hopped off the beast. The first thing he felt underfoot was the sand. The next thing he felt was the cool sea breeze kiss his face and neck. A low sigh went through Shurik's lips as the beast behind him took off and soared into the sky. Shurik walked along the sandy beach, the water rolling up and washing upon the shore. He hadn't seen skies so blue in a long time. His eyes couldn't help but drift up as he walked out of the sand and onto the beaten path surrounded by another sea, but his one was green. He had to admit that this was a beautiful place. Alas, Like all other places, it was cold, almost freezing to him.

Shurik walked along the path, the long spear clasped in his hand and leaning against his shoulder. As people seemed to come into view he could already tell they where very different to him. They where dressed lightly and openly. His body was covered, closed in and hugged by a couple layers. They all looked so warm and toasty comapired to he. It was probably true, though. Incendia was so much more hotter than any other area. He was also worried about the sunlight. The rays beating down on his pale skin slowly made his flesh heat up and he knew he would have to leave the sun quickly. He found a nice group of buildings further down the path and then another building he could lay his head down for the night. He rented a room from a nice family and placed his weapons down inside. He thanked the couple and nodded as he walked back out of the door and stood in the shade of the roof. He would explore for some time. The older man let him borrow a hat. It matched his outfit rather nicely. He walked back down the path to the beach and sat in the sand, staring off into the cool blue waters of the ocean. A few moments after he had sat down to enjoy the Scenery, a woman had rushed pass him, jogging along the sandy beach. He wouldn't have looked twice at that moment if it wasn't for her blue hair flowing through the air as she went past. HIs eyes instantly locked to her and he looked more in depth at her, staring as she continued along the beach and further away from him by the second.

He had laid in the soft bed nearly the entire night after the beach. He sat out there for hours on end just thinking and enjoying the scenery that was around him. He couldn't sleep in such a cold place, and there where no extra blankets to cover himself with. He had to take off a few layers of clothing so he didn't crinkle the suit he was wearing to the ball and his body hated him for it. He just laid there, a sheet covering up to his waist, his bare chest exposed to the cool air. His hands rested on the back of his head as he laid against them. He wished to visit here again when all things where said and done, and he would enjoy meeting a few more of the locals, other than the nice couple who let him stay in their extra bedroom and the mysterious stranger that had ran by him on the beach.

When he brought her up in his mind, he seemed to drift back to that time. Long blue hair, Olive colored skin only covered by a small amount of clothing. She was a true sight to behold running by. He laughed at himself and shook his head. He must have looked absolutely insane on that beach, bundled up in multiple layers of clothing while everyone else was wearing as little as possible to escape the so called 'heat.' He knew that this weather would roast much of the population of other places, but to him it was like walking atop the highest mountain in the middle of a blizzard. He smirked and thought about these people coming back to Incendia. He was almost certain none of them would complain of heat again. His eyes drifted away from the ceiling and towards the door of the bedroom. A soft knock soon followed his gaze as the older woman spoke through the bulk of wood. "Sir... If you wish to make the pod station in time and arrive early, you might want to leave now." He smiled. These people had shown him such kindness in a time of need. "Alright Ma'am.. I'll be out shortly." He heard the old woman chuckled and walk away from the door. 'what a nice young man... Still don't understand how he could wear so much clothing...' He continued to hear the woman's ramblings as she traveled down the hallway He laughed as his hands pushed his body from the bed and he swung his feet over and onto the floor.

The man took a quick stretch before he stood up and walked over to his clothing, the sheet falling off his almost bare body. Shurik placed all of his clothing back on his body and walked over to a mirror. He straightened up anything that looked untidy and rubbed out any of the wrinkles. Next he placed his bow and quiver over his shoulders. He knew he might not be able to bring such weapons into the ballroom, but he felt safer walking around an unfamiliar zone with something familiar on him. When he was fully dressed and armed, he picked up the decorative spear and walked from the bedroom, pushing the door open with the Knob end of the weapon. He walked into the small kitchen and bowed to the two people sitting there. "Thank you both very much for giving room for the night. I wish for you to have this." He walked over and dropped a small pouch on the table. The pouch was filled with a couple pieces of dragon scales. "Incendia thanks you too." He chuckled as they tried to refuse the gift and he quieted them as he walked to the front door. "Consider it a gift from one friend to another. I shall visit again." He nodded to each of them as he walked out into the bright sunlight. He still wore the hat the old man had given him as he walked through the streets and towards the Pod station where he was suppose to go. From there... He would be in the underwater kingdom or even in the Ballroom area itself. He didn't know if he was ready for this or not, but he figured there was no way to tell until he reached his destination.

A'Nailiah smiled as he spoke. It was true, in her own twisted little charmed filled way, it was affection that she poured upon him. She was the same way with Micah, though they were always closer than most would realize. "Yes. I would like to agree with that, Sachie, dear. You were pretty good for a statue!" A'Nailiah teased, gripping onto his shoulder more, giving a soft massage before letting go. She wondered around the room for a bit, taking in all of it's fashionably hard decor. A'Nailiah noticed the way that Sachiel was looking, as if he had adopted that 'stone face' once more. She hadn't realized what she had said till now, nor did she realize the effect that it would have on him. Inwardly, the woman sighed, not wanting to hurt the man's feelings, at least. Taking a few deep breaths, the woman returned her presence next to his own as he asked the question. Nodding, A'Nailiah returned to her walk around the basement as she solemnly spoke. "No, actually. The farthest I've been out of Siram was to the mountain that Micah frequents. It's supposed to be just for those of royal blood, yet for some reason, I could set foot there. Perhaps I'm blessed by our queen. ." A'Nailiah said, trailing her fingers along a trail of piping. To her surprise, she saw no dust!! This put a smile upon her face. "Other than that, I have never seen outside the walls of Siram. Hell, I've never even seen some parts of Siram! The only time I'm ever here on the islands is to jog after my swim here." A'Nailiah was raised into the royal family, she could only thank the goddesses and her 'mother' the queen for this pleasure, for she could have wound up being in Sachiel's place. She was never 'allowed' to travel far, for protection against the odd eyes of the public, but A'Nailiah, being as strange as she is, loved the attention. As they headed up the stairs and out of the door, A'Nailiah noticed that Sachiel had stopped. He had an object in her hand and his gaze was upon her, before setting it back down. Turning to walk back toward him, A'Nailiah questioned. " You've shone me pretty much everything. What was that?" Her head tilted, oceanic hair shifting to one side as she does so. She was ever curious at times, and wondered why Sachiel was so secretive about this object."Unless, you don't want to show me? I could understand if you don't! So, lets go!"

The ceaseless teasing… It was a part of Sachiels life that he had grown accustomed to. That he would probably feel strange going without at this point. “A statue, eh?” He asked, with a sinister smile on his face. “When’s the last time you saw a statue do this?!” With that, he assaulted the woman with his fingers, tickling her relentlessly until she would surrender. She could battle him with words all day, but this time, he would be victorious. Her answer to his question didn’t much surprise him. After all, she had a sheltered mentality like the rest of them. “Perhaps you ARE blessed by the Queen.” He said to her. “But you can tell me about the ways of the world once you’ve seen a bit more of it.” He teased. He poked her nose as he finished his statement, then lead her up the stairs. He was surprised when she asked him about the shell he had picked up. He had come to the conclusion that she was none too interested in anything he had to offer in this place, but then, she never failed to surprise him. “This,” He started. “It's a gift for you." He said. He lifted the shell to his ear for a moment. It was a light pink color, and seemed to reflect the rainbow off its surface. “People say you can hear the ocean when you put a shell to your ear, but what you really hear is the flow of blood in your head.” He said. It would seem a random fact for him to tell her, until he completed the statement. “But this shell is different. It’s like it actually puts off the feelings of the ocean, that most members of Siram have forgotten how to listen to…” He handed the shell to her, and allowed her to listen for herself. Once she had her fill, they would head back out toward the beach, and walk toward the Palace.

So finally she had made her way to the islands. The clear sky, deep water, and foilage. Everything was so vibrant and clear. The ocean air carressed her tan skin and brought a smile to her face. She was here to find a job or a lead on one at least. " Hmm.." she thinks to herself. There werent a lot of people around. Then she spies Sachiel. Trotting over to him, she plasters a big smile on her face. She wanted to fix the way things had been between them. The last conversation they had was pleasant enough but he still didn't seem to like her. Reaching into her pocket she pulls out a small coral sword. She had found it in a shop and thought of him for some reason. Stopping short she pauses and waits to see if he notices her there.

"Yes. ." A'Nailiah stated in response to Sachiel's question. She figured him a statue since the very first time that she laid eyes on him. Someone that was chiseled out of stone and had the personality to match. Lately, it would seem that Sachiel was coming out of his stone shell; laughing and enjoying himself a lot more. A'Nailiah raised her hand over her head to about Sachiel's height as she continued. "A REEEEEEAAAALY tall stone sta----EEEK!!!!" A'Nailiah would let out a squeak as she was suddenly tickled. Her hand dropping to her sides to try and shield herself from the onslaught, but to no avail; she was highly ticklish! "Please.... Stop..Stooop...Ahhh..." Her words where broken as she tried desperately to take control of the situation, even backing off of him to try and get away. As he finally stopped, A'Nailiah took the time to catch her breath and gather herself, wiping the tears that fell from her eyes. "I most certainly WILL Sir Sach-A-Lot!" She teased, playing upon his name as if he was a knight.
Wiggling her nose as she was poked, she grinned and took careful hold of the brilliant pink shell. "So, THIS is the surprise that you have been wanting to show me?! I love it!" A'Nailiah listed to his words and done just that; placed the shell against her ear. It was different than most shells found lingering around the beaches of Siram. The sound was magical, dear she say mystical. It held a curtain rhythm to it, the same sounds that she had brown accustomed to when she was out and about during the early morning hours; not a soul around to disturb the beauty of the aquatic ambiance of the seascape. Her eyes closed, her voice sweetly hummed a tune befitting of the beautiful noise which graced her ear. "It's so beautiful. ." She whispered, her voice softening up, but still whimsical. As they headed out, much to her surprise, they were greeted by Ashling; the red headed chick A'Nailiah noticed at the dance. Did she know of this place? Was she invited as well? Did she have a shell just as the one that was held within her grasps?! A'Nailiah clutched the shell tighter, still being careful not to break the gift. She just stared at the woman, not saying a thing. . Though, her proximity to Sachiel was greatly tightened.

Perfect… Sachiel thought, as Naili’s weakness of being extremely ticklish was exposed. He enjoyed her submission, as she backed away from her, even begged for him to stop! He could have tortured her forever, but he would relieve her of her suffering this time. The smile on his face was one of sheer glee. It was a wild guess that she was ticklish, but given her personality, Sachiel was far from surprised. He was glad she enjoyed her gift. He was seconds away from not giving it to her, but given the situation, he realized it would have been foolish of him to keep it from her. “I’m glad you like it.” He said to her. “I’d never seen one like it before, I thought it belonged with you.” On the way out the door, Sachiel noticed Ashling standing out on the beach. He still hadn’t made up his mind about her. She was marked as a pure-tee bitch during their first encounter, however, their last meeting, was somewhat pleasant. He noticed, that the closer they got to her, the closer A’Nailiah stood to him. A light smile, that would most likely be missed even if she stared him in the eye crossed his face as he realized this. It was a protective measure, and he loved it. Not only that, but, if necessary, it gave him ammo to use against her later. “Hello, Ashling.” He said, as they made it before her. His voice was calm and pleasant. He noticed that she was holding something in her hand, though he couldn’t identify it. “How are you doing today?”

Ashling smiles softly at Sachiel, and then notices A'Nailiah standing protectively close to him. She nods to the other woman. She wasn't interested in taking Sachiel from her. She simply wanted him to know she wasnt the bitch he thought she was. Digging through her pockets quickly she pulls out the blue topaz rose she had found in the same shop. She was always buying little trinkets. This rose kind of reminded her of the woman standing next to Sachiel. It looked hard, blue, and pretty. Ashling stands there holding the sword and the rose out to them. " Oh hello Sachiel. Im well. Im glad to see you." Then turning to A'Nailiah she says " Hello. I'm Ashling. What's your name? Oh, also, would you like this rose? It reminds me of you for some reason." Then to Sachiel she says " This sword is for you." She looks down at her feet for a moment. Would they take her gifts a peace offerings?

Blue eyes of the royals never left Ashling's frame. They did more than simply watched, the read her. Body type, figure, motions, actions, the way she moved her lips, everything. The mere sight of her left A'Nailiah in a state of unease. What made this lower class whelp so special? Micah taking her in without the slightest word to A'Nailiah regarding it, basically going behind her back. Everyone at the dance was all over her, yet only gave the much prettier A'Nailiah a mere glance; though the glances dropped jaws. Now, she speaking to Sachiel, hogging his attention. Her eyes turned up to his, a curious look upon her face before she lowered her gaze back to the woman, forcing a crooked friendly smile. "Aww. For me? It's beautiful! You really shouldn't have!" A'Nailiah grinned, taking the rose into her hand and placing it into her hair. She wouldn't speak anymore, though her arms crossed over her chest, fingers rapping against her biceps.

Ashling begins to shiver slightly as A'Nailiah studies her. It was the way the woman's eyes seemed to want to burn through her, to destroy her, to make an Ashling sized mark of burnt skin and hair. She wanted so badly to ask A'Nailiah what she had ever done to her, but Ashling still had some pride left. If she was being fair, she was sure her presence here in Siram and her being taken in by Micah probably made many uncomfortable but what they didn't understand was that Ashling had asked for NOTHING! Nothing at all. Not the friendship, not the looks, not the kindness, none of it. She wanted friends, yes, but she asked for nothing and yet this woman looked at her as if she walked around demanding attention. She simply acted like she always did. If others chose to pay attention to her then so be it. When the woman took the rose and said she SHOULDN"T have, Ashling reponds. " Well I did. I tend to collect odds and ends, trinkets of sorts. I had this one and I thought you might like it." Ashling tilts her head slightly to the right, her strawberry blonde hair falling in a thick curtain down her back and over her arm. Her ice blue eyes study the hard set of the woman's face. Oh my. They would clearly never be friends. Tiring of the hard set to the womans face she turns back to Sachiel.

Sachiel instinctively took A’Nailiahs hand as Ash approached. He didn’t know why, but her defensive body language made him feel it the thing to do in the moment. Perhaps he wanted to comfort her. Perhaps he was looking for comfort himself… Either way, he foresaw an awkward situation approaching. He returned Ashlings smile, and accepted her gift. “Thank you.” He told her, as he examined the sword. He would put it in his room when he returned. “It’s good to see you again too.” He faces Ashling, but out of the corner of his eye, he watched Naili. She was tense, and she was burning into their guest with her eyes. He had to admit though, she wasn’t as cold as HE had been to her, but he didn’t know what she had against the woman. Attempting to change the subject, he looked toward Ash once more and asked her. “So what are you doing on this side of the Islands?” It did seem a bit odd for her to be on the poor side when she had her own room in the Palace.

" I see. Well, the color sure matches. ." Was all that A'Nailiah said to the woman. She could feel the tension between both of them rise as high as the mountains that surround Siram. Her jaw tensed; Ashling was just TOO nice. No matter how A'Nailiah put off that she didn't want to see this woman, she had no choice but to deal with her. Taking a long exasperated breath, A'Nailiah found herself out of the conversation. Just great! She thought to herself. Though, at this point, the boiling blue eyes softened as her hand was taken by the larger hand of Sachiel. She didn't know what to do at this point! Words escaped her, her lips parted. She loved the feeling of his hand in hers, yet she wanted to remove herself from this situation and being emotional drawn to him. She growled softly, though it was under her breath and nearly inaudible. Her heart raced, olive cheeks flushed with a soft pink. Her fingers gripped Sachiel's tighter and with each word he spoke to Ashling, her grip tightened.

Ashling nods in agreement to the color match. The rose suited the woman, no doubt about that. Eyes still on Sachiel she smiles. " You are welcome. I saw that in a store and it reminded me of you. But, like I said, Im always doing that." She shrugs before continuing. " Well I'm a healer. Or rather I wish to work as one. I was informed that these islands are where one should go to work as a healer. So.. here I am." She smiles widely, all the while taking in the tension and the way that A'Nailiah and Sachiel held hands and seemed braced for soemthing bad. Her? No. More likely, this other woman snapping out and hurting Ashling. Ice blue eyes sparkling and full red lips still curled up in a smile, Ashling assesses the situation. " I suppose I should go. You both seem on edge. Sachiel, it was nice to see you again... Lady,who never told me her name, it was nice to meet you. Also don't worry. I wont talk to you again. If I did anything to you I am sorry but I will be around for a while so I can't say I'll just leave. Like it or not this is my home now." She finishes her speech with another small smile and turns to go, hair falling down her back and shimmering in the sun. The last view they would have of her if she left, at least for the time being.

Sachiel smiled to Ashling as she told him that she planned to work as a Healer for the Island. “A healer, eh? I have to say, that’s something I’m not very good at, but If you want to work as a healer, here’s my advice.” He pointed into town, but his gaze was beyond this island and on to the next one. “Particularly gifted Healers gather on Coeo Island.” He said. “They have a 24 hour system there, so that there’s always a Healer available in case of an emergency. They’re always looking for new healers so that the shifts don’t have to be so long and tiring. Also, it helps to have friends around.” He hoped his advice would be useful to her. Her goodbye greeting bothered him though. He didn’t like the tension that had built up. He wanted to stop her from leaving. Force the two to get along before she left, but he knew it impossible. “I’ll see you around then!” He said with a smile. Hopefully she wouldn’t feel too discouraged. After all, in the “Land of Peace” No one should be made to feel an outcast. Once she was gone, he turned to Naili, and lifted her hand to his lips, placing a gentle kiss on it. “Are you alright?” He asked. She seemed really flustered from the whole situation, and he didn’t know why. But he wanted to ensure everything was ok, before they went back to the palace.

A'Nailiah just watched the two go back and forth with their words; the conversation basically excluding the one who always craved attention. Yet, again, this woman was stealing it from her. She was nothing special, frail, pale, had disgusting red hair. Yet, she had stolen the attention of the people she cared about the most, especially Micah. She opted to stay out of the banter, deciding that it was best for her to just stay put and remain calm. But what had really gotten to her, was when she said 'again'. A'Nailiah's hand gripped his like a vice, her eyes narrowing sharply; she wanted to explode! But, why. Why was she feeling like this all of the sudden?! It was so confusing! All along, her heart secret rests with Micah; she could actually say that she was in love with her. On the same token, Sachiel stepped into her life and things began to change. Seeing the two together before was hurtful, but as long as Micah was happy, that's all that A'Nailiah cared about, even if it were not with her. As the woman walked away, lips caught A'Nailiah's attention and brought her out of her daydream of drowning Ashling and the potential feelings for both Micah and Sachiel. Her 'Death Glare' was now focused on Sachiel. She took her hand back from the man and shook her head. "I'm fine. . . ." Was all she said as she turned her attention back to the palace grounds over the gulf, her normal upbeat attitude fading for this instant. How long had they been seeing each other, what have they been doing? Grrr! Why was she thinking like this about him?! Why was her thoughts so scattered!? What the hell could she do?! Finally admit to herself that she has feelings for him. But what of her feelings for Micah. . .

Hearing Sachiel's advice on where to go made Ashling smile and nod. But something caught her attention. It seemed that even though she had done nothing, this other woman regarded her as an enemy. A threat. Shaking her head, she sighs and turns back. She stops when she is standing about five feet from the woman. " Listen. I want to tell you something. I'm no threat to you or your way of life. I dont wish to take him," a small gesture to Sachiel. " or anyone else from you. I understand if you just want to hate me, but I will of course, just think you're jealous. I have no clue what you would be jealous of however. Now, Im willing to try to be at least cordial to you. Do you like the rose?" She smiles but the smile doesn't quite reach her eyes, which appear to have darkened a bit in anger. Ashling crosses her arms and taps her fingers against her upper arm waiting, all the while eying the woman.

Nailis reaction to Sachiel was painful. For her to express anger toward him caused him more pain than she would realize. He just wanted to keep the peace! He didn’t want to cause more problems! But at the same time, he understood. He knew, at least part of what was bothering her. The way she closed the gap between them when the other woman appeared… The way she squeezed his hand when he said the word “again...” There were hints of protectiveness, and jealousy in her body language. That was for sure. But how to convince her that she had nothing to fear? His hand went numb, as hers was taken away from it, and a feeling of emptiness came over him. What should he tell her to let her know that NOTHING could tear his attention away from her? Then, she turned her back on him, walking toward the Kingdom. “Naili wait!” He exclaimed. He ran forward to catch up with her, unwilling to let this happen. “I need to tell you something!” His heart pounded, the closer he got to her. It was now or never, for he may not have another chance again. He grabbed her hand, as she didn’t turn to face him, and turned her to face him himself. “The days since I met you have been the best of my life.” He started. “I’ve never felt so much joy, so much happiness. I’ve never waken up in the morning, and had something to look forward to the way I look forward to the next time I get to see you. It’s hard for me to say this, but I love you. I have no doubts about that.” He took a long breath after saying that, and he could hear his heart wrestling with his ribs. “I don’t care what else happens, as long as you know that…” With that, he released her hand, and took a step backward. If she chose to walk away from him, he would allow her. There was nothing more he could do at that point.

A'Nailiah listened to the woman's words and shook her head as she spoke them. "Dear girl, he is not mine to take. And even if he were, I'd doubt anyone the likes of you could manage that. What is mine is mine only. ." She snapped, her words like venom, searing through the flesh of the woman. Being what she was, she could feel the seniority in Ashling's heart, though the way the woman had chose to speak to A'Nailiah was the irritating part. Her eyes narrowed as the girl spoke of being jealous. How DARE she?! A'Nailiah, jealous? Of HER?! HA! "You have GOT to be kidding me! If I wasn't so against violence, I'd rip your skinny little head off. ." A'Nailiah said with her back turned to both Sachiel and Ashling. Taking a moment to calm down and breath, she nods. "Oh yeah. I forgot about the rose. Yes, I do like it. ." Her words were true, but the way she spoke held the same abrasiveness as the rest of her words to Ashling. Soon, A'Nailiah had felt a hand around hers, the hand pulled her so that she was now facing Sachiel. "WHAT?!" She snapped. Lately, A'Nailiah was feeling very emotional and out of her character as of late. She felt lazy, moody, didn't care to get out of bed to tend to her set routine. She was just. . Odd. Sometimes she even questioned her own actions as of late. Before she could get another word out, Sachiel began to speak. As his words began to flow, her gaze never left his own. Though she was still in a state of anger, her eyes softened, her lips parted, her tense body relaxed in his arms as she looked up at him. He just confessed his love for her. Taking a deep gulp, A'Nailiah froze for a few minutes, stunned at his confession. She couldn't say that she felt the same way about him. She likes him and all, but her heart belonged to Micah. Though, she was falling for him, she was just afraid to admit it to herself. She was so confused. "I. . I. ." A'Nailiah stuttered over her words, not knowing what to say to him. As he let her hand go, A'Nailiah felt a tug upon her heart; she didn't want him to let go. Clearing her throat and turning away, her face flustered a bright red, she began to walk again. "Come on. We're going to be late!" She quickly switched subjects, gladly adverting that for the time being.

PostSubject: The Calm...   Mon Jan 10, 2011 10:52 am

Sachiel clenched his free fist as A’Nailiah exploded on Ashling. Also, the hand which she held in her own tightened as well. Though it clearly wasn’t at the top of her mind at the moment, she had confirmed his theory in that moment. If a woman born and raised in Siram could think such horrible thoughts toward a person, imagine what someone born in a clan that DIDN’T preach pacifism was capable of! He was glad when they parted ways with Ashling. It would give Naili a chance to calm down. When she yelled at him upon his catching up with her, he closed his eyes for a second, filtering out her anger with the situation from her anger with him, before opening his eyes and making his confession. He had learned that speechlessness with Naili was always a good thing. It meant she was truly thinking, and not just saying the first thing that came into her mind. He smiled when she turned and started walking, summoning him as well. He didn’t need for her to say that she loved him too. He was happy enough that she wished him to walk by her side. As he joined her, a cool breeze blew past them, and he looked up at the sunny sky. “There’s a storm coming…” He said quietly. He could smell it in the air. But it didn’t bother him. There was a weight off his shoulders that he had been carrying for some time now. He had told her, and she hadn’t rejected him. In his eyes, that was a win…

There has been a misconception about the people of Siram; just because they preach and live by peace, doesn't mean that there would be a squabble between the people within. Usually though, they would work out disagreements and live in harmony once more; even if it's tension filled. This encounter was strange, even for the odd woman herself; violent outbursts was not the norm for the woman when interacting with others. She had been feeling strange all day and it was getting worse as the day progressed. As they walked, her hand slipped with Sachie's, fingers lacing between his own. She didn't actually noticed this until he spoke of the changing weather that pushed the winds from sea side to grace the sandy beaches. The tides also rose, creeping over the once dry sands, saturating the golden grains. The waters even crept up passed the woman's ankles! "You're right, Sachie! It does seem like it's going to be a really bad one today! I can't wait to sit out and watch it. ." A'Nailiah giggled, the wind now finally picking up more ferociously from the ocean, whipping her hair across her face. Thunder sounded from the distance as dark clouds began to move in. It would be a little while before the storm actually arrives, and A'Nailiah couldn't wait. She loved storms, the rain, the way the weather was always churning just as the waters, just as her emotions. The scent of the fresh rainfall created a contrast against the salty ocean spray. The two scents danced along the winds, causing A'Nailiah to close her eyes and take a deep breath. She let out a relaxed breath. "Ahhhh. So wonderful!" She said, her body now relaxing as they traveled along the beach. "Pods or do you want to go for a swim?" She asked, looking up at Sachiel.

PostSubject: Storm Chasers   Thu Jan 13, 2011 9:49 am

It amazed Sachiel, how natural it felt walking hand in hand with A’Nailiah. He expected he would be blushing, shaking even, but he wasn’t. He was simply walking. Taking in his surroundings as always. The shifts in the winds, the scent that always preceded the storm. No sooner than he mentioned it to Naili, did other signs start to present themselves. The rising of the tides caused the water to massage his feet. The birds made their way to the inner parts of the Islands, seeking shelter. His eyes traveled to Naili, however, when she stated that she wanted to sit out and watch the storm. “Never took you for one to enjoy storms.” He said with a laugh. “I’ll definitely be out enjoying it too.” He had always enjoyed a good storm. They gave birth to his best art. He turned around, and looked back toward his house, then forward, toward the pods. They were about halfway in between. He had a pad he could use to draw with at both locations, so he could gather one no matter where they went, but then, once more, Naili took him by surprise. A swim? Right now? It was kind of bizarre, but the ocean did look beautiful, and he couldn’t see reason they shouldn’t. “A swim sounds nice.” He said with a smile. He took all their belongings and placed them in a small bag, dropping it on the beach. But instead of walking toward the ocean, he stood in front of Naili, and put his hands on her hips. “Ready?” He asked, before lifting her up so that her feet were just barely off the ground. Then, he took a few steps backward, until he was standing on the surface of the water, the waves bouncing the two of them up and down, like a buoy floating toward the shore. He then started skating backwards on the water, carrying her with him. When they reached a location which would have the water come up to Nailis shoulders, he simply dropped. No time to adjust, no time to be afraid of the water, no time to be cold. It was the easiest way to adjust the body temperature. He grinned as he removed his hands from her hips, and allowed the water to soothe his body.

A'Nailiah could do nothing but smile; her cheeks were also greeted with a faint rose tint as they puffed out due to the smile. The ocean blue eyes twinkled, matching the star dust sprinkled waves of the ocean abroad. As the winds whirled, they pushed the waves, causing them to gain more turbulence, even building to waves which got higher than a few feet from the actual sea level. Her eyes traveled upward, watching how the birds all flew in flee from the approaching storm that threatened to give birth to it's well of thunderous cells. " There are a lot of things that one wouldn't take me for, or think I would like. Very few people take the time to actually ask and get to know me. They would rather just assume that I am like this or like that because of my. . 'colorful' personality. . ." A'Nailiah used her free hand to create air quotes. "Assumptions could be bad, but I could be an open book as long as I am asked about things. I like to talk, and I like to have people to talk to. ." A'Nailiah confessed. "People tend to not want to actually speak to me. Maybe, they don't take me seriously because of how I am? It's all just strange to me. Micah, she always listens to me, hears me out, offers her shoulder when I need to rest my head upon it and weep like a child. ." A'Nailiah's eyes glinted, before she turned up to view Sachiel's eyes.

"I love to swim. It's so relaxing, yet invigorating. During a storm would seem like the worst time to swim. ." She turned to the ocean, the winds now picking up and blowing her hair wildly. Her tank and shorts was coated in a light spray of moisture. " I find it pretty exciting. It really gets the heart rac---" A'Nailiah bit her lower lip as Sachiel's hands came in contact with her fit waist. Then, he did what she dreaded, he lifted her! Regardless of how high it was, she still hated heights, no matter the distance from the ground. A'Nailiah squealed and screamed as she felt the ground leave her feet. She kicked frantically to try and gain access to be grounded again. Her hands instantly moved to Sachiel's shoulder, gripping him with urgency. "Sachie! Sachie! Sachie! No! No! NOOO! No heights! Ahhhh!" She screamed, pleading with the man for a safe return to the ground. "Please Please!" She pleaded frantically. "Put me down! Where are you going?!" She asked, eyes wide and flickering back and forth between him and the ground that soon gave way to the rushing waves. Now turning a dark blue due to the darkening skies. "Please SACHIIEEEEE!!!" She begged before he dropped the woman into the water, her entire outfit being soaked and clinging to her olive toned fit body. She wrapped her arms around his neck, clinging to him tightly. She shook as if she was cold as the fear took hold of her body. "No heights. . .No. ." She shivered as the floated along the rushing waves, trying very desperately to retain her nerves.

PostSubject: Fear of... "Heights?"   Thu Jan 13, 2011 4:57 pm

Sachiel with a new surprise. He listened to her words carefully, returning her smile with his own as he nodded, turning to face her, and never releasing her hand from his own. “Why don’t you tell me about those things?” He asked. “I don’t want to assume.” He said, as his body inched closer to hers. “I want to know.” At this point, his lips were mere centimeters from her own. A single drop of rain landing on each of their noses as he awaited her answer, his lip quivering slightly. No one saw this side of him. Not his mother, not his guardians, not even Micah. It was something that he only exposed before Naili. His hand met with the side of her face, as his lips instinctively met with hers. Not that he had intended to be forward. Something about those rain clouds in the distance…. “I couldn’t imagine not being able to talk to you.” He said gently. “It would be like taking away the ocean. I want you to know that. I want you to know that just as you have Micah, you have me as well. Even if I do give you a hard time.”
His playful streak then took over as he carried her to the ocean. Her reaction took him by surprise, but it only took him a matter of seconds to get her into the water, giving him little time to react to it. He actually felt a sore sensation in his shin after they landed, from where she had kicked him. He hadn’t noticed it at the time when it happened. He grinned as she clung to him, and he wrapped his arms around her. “It’s ok.” He said calmly. “You’re safe. You’re always safe with me.” The sands shifted beneath their feet as she regained her composure. He planted a kiss on her forehead, and looked into the most gorgeous blue eyes in existence. “I won’t lift you like that anymore.” He said. He couldn’t have imagined she would react like that. While his face showed care, he couldn’t help but laugh on the inside, as the tides pushed the two of them side to side, their bodies pressed together as if held by some sort of adhesive. He would hold her close as long as she needed, then their swim could commence…

"I just love water in all of it's forms. ." She stated, gazing into his eyes. as she calmed down slightly before resting her head upon his chest. " It's just that I don't like ice. Not because of the obvious, just because I'm not a big fan of the cold. It's so restricting. ." She took deep breaths to gather her thoughts, her arms still tightly wrapped around his neck. The kiss that he placed upon her lips caused her to smile, though she hid it by turning her face into his chest, nuzzling it softly as they floated along the disturbed waters; her body against his own. " The soft pitter-patter of the raindrops as they come falling down against my window sill. Then, as the storm grows stronger, I like to sit out on the balcony and just listen to the waves dance with the falling rain. It's so majestic and beautiful. The sound just lulls me into a place of tranquility and perfect peace with myself. ." She spoke, her words becoming more mature and serious, than what she was known for. She was really opening up her mind and heart to Sachiel, something she didn't expect to be doing, especially at this point in their 'relationship'." I say we give each other hard times, Sachie. I think I give you the hardest time. ." She smiled, and nodded against his chest, her heart beat stabilizing as the rain now pelt them like millions of tiny bullets. "I like to feel safe. I hate the heights, no matter what. I felt as if you were about to take off; it was so unexpected. . .Anyway!" Her playfulness returned as she pushed off of him and began to swim toward the underwater kingdom. "You had better NOT lift me again! Or, I'd make you pay!" She teased, swimming faster then diving under water. The shirt now tight against her body, becoming almost transparent as she guided her body downward.
