We all float on okay

X is in no way lurking in the forest.

Not at all.






Okay, fine. She is practicing her stalking skills on demon rabbits.

They have sensitive hearing.

It is useful.

(Shut up.)

Something rustles in a nearby treetop.

It vanishes almost instantly, but leaves the impression of gray smoke.



A few moments later, there are footsteps in the distance-- pretty quiet, by normal-person standards, but far from inaudible.

Ava steps out from behind a tree, hands out in a stop-sign gesture.

"Hey, X." She's wearing a pretty necklace with three gems on it-- Sameth's Charter magic necklace that lets her see in the dark. "This a good time?"
hadyougoing: (watch your back)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 01:36 am (UTC)(link)
She puts her hands down and comes a little closer, though she looks left, right, up. Routine now.

"I didn't see anybody on my way out."
hadyougoing: (watch your back)

Ava nods.

And ... hesitates.



Everything that feels so-- not overwhelming, but big-- seems to shrink down when she's with people, or at least people like Beverly and X. But she's started to realize that that doesn't necessarily mean everything's fine.

She leans against a tree, folding her arms over her chest, and tries to figure out where the hell to begin.
hadyougoing: (not according to plan)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
She sighs, looking off to the side-- into the trees.

For some time.









"Sorry," she murmurs eventually. "I'll start."

A shake of her head.

"So-- Death comes here. The one from my world."
hadyougoing: (I'll be killing you later)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 02:34 am (UTC)(link)
"Not exactly."

Her arms tighten over her chest.

"He did something to me, though. Said he put a mark on me so only he can reap me."
hadyougoing: (green! angst! sad demon girl!)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 02:49 am (UTC)(link)
Ava nods.

"Yeah, it hurt."
hadyougoing: (highly dubious)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 02:56 am (UTC)(link)
She frowns.

"No-- I don't think so? I've been having nightmares, but I don't think they're like, supernatural or anything."
hadyougoing: (highly dubious)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 03:17 am (UTC)(link)
"That's true," she sighs.

"I don't know. If it helps, I haven't lost any time, or seen anything I can't explain-- marks, symbols, creepy children, zip."

A pause.

"There's more, though."
hadyougoing: (I don't like where this is going)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
"Hannibal Lecter saw it happen." She shakes her head. "He threw a book at Death and threatened to turn him into broth?"

Which you kind of have to admire, just for the chutzpah of it all.

"Later he told me I should be careful, and talk to Security, because, you know, what's to stop Death from dragging me out of here and back home-- and it would be nice, except ..."
hadyougoing: (check your periph)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 03:48 am (UTC)(link)
"Yeah." Ava nods. "That's what I figure."

About the maneuvering, anyway.

The rest she's not so sure of.
hadyougoing: (being psychic is hard work)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 04:06 am (UTC)(link)
"I just--"

Ava brings a hand up to her temple, brushing hair back behind her ear in a fitful gesture.


"I can handle it," she says. "But I really wasn't expecting anybody from home to get mixed up in this."
hadyougoing: (drama to the left!)

[personal profile] hadyougoing 2015-01-24 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
Ava nods.

"Yeah. I know." A bit dull. "And he hasn't even done anything yet."
