Tomorrow. Just for Edwin.
There shall be…
Jake BOOTYSHORT Nightfurrow.
(( looks like I’m going to have to practice my twerk… ;m; ))
[ …. wait what. ]
(( I tried to go for that “No-Good-Piece-of-Shit” Look, (and forced so much product into my fuckign hair -sobs- I hope you’re happy Grolder.))
[ Jamie has possibly damaged her hair beyond repair to replicate Jake’s messy bed head…?
Yes. Your suffering pleases the goat. ]
My pokemon are gone…
I couldnt resist doing “Sad Jake” while in this make up.
Poor, unfortunate Jakey. ;3;
Guys, I did it. I did the thing. The cosplay thing. Did I good? Good yes?
Bonus because I’m a creep
Bonus Bonus because, uh, stupid?
There is NO way I can pull off Jake’s hair. Nope nope.
To be quite honest. Jake can pull off his own hair. :’D
Fingers curling around her hand, Alex chuckled and took off the ice bag. There wasn’t much external damage to her face, if you didn’t count the bruise around the side of her nose where Bo’s hit had landed.
“Well, I tried to stop him from leaving and it.. escalated.” She was glad the jeans covered the probably impressive amount of bruises from the kicking, but it didn’t help the pain. “He settled down in the end though… Seems he’s really asleep now so let’s try not to wake him uo.”
Using the hand freed from the ice bag, she grabbed the half-finished apple and took another bite. “You want breakfast? I can go get stuff after I, uh.. clean up a bit.” And now, there were new bloodstains on the floor to be scrubbed off, contributed by herself. Alex cringed a tad for the pain caused by chewing the fruit, but tried to stay as neutral as possible.
“Yeah, yeah I’m okay….” She’d always been a bad liar. “Nothing much i guess.. …Listen.” reverting her gaze onto Jake again, her eyebrows tipped up in a slight frown.
“Could you.. Not be too angry at him? I mean yeah he did this but he wasn’t thinking straight. I’m sure.”
Jake’s gaze softened a bit, but he was still angry with Bo for lashing out at Alex. “Not thinking straight… like when I cut his ear?” Jake glanced up at Alex. If Bo couldn’t forgive him for that then why should he forgive Bo for this?
“I’m not going to beat him up or anything if you’re worried about that. Not like I could but…” Jake sighed, rubbing his face clear of the drowsiness that still tingled along it. Still couldn’t feel anything below his wrist. From the wrist up, all the claw marks of that little imp stung like mad.
“You can take a shower if you want.” Jake gestured towards the bathroom with his good hand, pulling on a concerned look again seeing Alex’s face. Then, he gave a playful smile. “And when you’re cleaned up you can lay down and I’ll kiss the boo-boo and make it better.”
Holding the makeshift ice bag against her face, Alex turned her head towards Jake upon hearing the groans and sounds of the man shifting in place. Wiping some of the dried blood from around her face off onto the cloth, she put the ice down and slowly, as painlessly as possible attempting to slide on the floor, she moved next to Jake and ruffled his hair slightly.
“Morning. You feeling okay?”
Kai let out a dramatic sigh and slumped back onto the floor. That moment had been rather nice UNTIL the pesky man had decided to wake up. Just his luck.
Upon feeling the stinging return, the altonian grabbed the ice bag and put it against her nose again. It didn’t feel dislocated… Just had to wait for the pain to pass like always. “You passed out after sitting up too hastily last night. Don’t do that again.”
Jake gave a smile with closed eyes. Coming through enough to recognize the voice and gently wrapped his hand around the one ruffling his hair. “Had better mornings.”
When Jake opened his eyes, however, he gave a worried frown. Did Bo break her nose?! Couldn’t see it much past the ice but it was enough to see the traces of blood running down her chest and waist to know it was a bad hit.
“Are you alright? What happened?” Jake stole a glance at the heap of blanket on the bed, his glance turning into a deathly glare at the kid curled up beneath it. That little useless… after doing that to Alex he was surprised the kid wasn’t gone or at the very least sleeping under a dragon’s butt.
Bo listened numbly to the rest of what Alex had to say. His eyes seemed to have run dry, leaving nothing but a hollow casing around his chest and a dull ache clinging to the back of his skull. The head on his shoulder and hand holding his felt like lead.
He tucked his chin to his chest in half of a nod before fixing his eyes on the wall directly across from the bed. It wasn’t particularly interesting, or even worth the attention in the slightest, but Bo was hardly looking at it anyhow. Maybe if he stared long enough, he could see straight through it.
A ghost of a smile lingered around the corner of his lips with a memory. It wasn’t difficult to remember the checkered curtains his grandmother used to close over his window to keep him from getting up to wait for his mother. He must have been six at time. He’d probably memorized every little square dyed into the fabric from staring at them until his eyes couldn’t stay open a minute longer. Somehow he had been sure—so sure—that if he could do it, if he could just stare straight through the curtain, he’d see his mother walking up the front steps on the other side.
This wall wasn’t nearly as appealing. He wasn’t even sure what he was looking for on the other side, but maybe.. maybe if he could make the wall vanish, that was one step closer to doing the same to himself. When the boy’s eyes finally fell shut for the night, the gray morning light was already creeping in through the window.
Sleeping got increasingly difficult when the bruises from the nightly argument finally formed along time. However, Alex woke up somewhat rested, seeing the sun try and peek it’s light in from the window. Letting out a yawn, she quickly regretted it as her face protested in a new flash of pain.
All the pokemon were still asleep, and Jake was right where he’d been last night as well, with Kip curled up on the pillow next to the locheshian’s head. Bo was either asleep, or pretending to be. Carefully pulling her arm from under the kid, it bristled and tickled as the feeling returned to her digits. Slipping down from the bed and quickly resorting to favoring her left foot due to a hurting knee, she moved over to Kai and tickled the Samurott’s nose with the tip of his whiskers. When the pokemon’s eye opened, Alex held out a piece of cloth and flashed an awkward grin.
“Could you maybe, give me some ice?” she whispered, pointing at the bridge of her nose. “This kinda needs it…”
Noticing Kai’s worried look, Alex gave herself a quick check and pulled a face. Riiight… The front of her top and jeans were dotted with dried-up blood splatters. Carefully feeling the front of her face, she winced. She’d have to take a shower once she was sure everything was okay. And preferably get a change of clothes. Rubbing her right leg to try and get the pain to settle down a bit, she pulled her bag next to her and took out an apple. She hadn’t eaten anything since last morning and the burst of everything in Lochesh hadn’t really contributed to helping the situation. Sitting there on the floor, she handed Kai a piece of the apple and took a bite herself.
Man, it tasted good.
Was a big mistake to try and sit up so suddenly. Jake remained passed out, drifting between complete darkness and flashes of colors and images in his sleep. When he started to come through again, his head faced towards the wall.
Slowly his body shifted under the sheet, breath becoming more manual as he sucked in an at an irregular rate, and his eyes fluttered towards the shadows against the wall desperate to form them into recognizable shapes. He stifled out a low groan, rubbing his good hand up his face and tracing the fingers through his hair. Everything seemed to form quicker at least and the blurs of the world were less intense.
Why did he even pa-.. Bo… Jake turned his head around, giving a louder groan with his head ached from the motion and scrunched his eyes shut. That little shit actually hit Alex?! He expected Bo to hit him, but never Alex!
Fluffy instantly jumped up after Jake’s ‘pat’ knocked him over.
“Don’t touch me!” The zorua yelled out telepathically. Many people turned to look and what they saw wasn’t a drilbur and a zorua but a drilbur and a zoroark? In the spur of the moment, Fluffy transformed into, what he thought was the scariest pokemon, Eden. He (or she rather) stood on her hind legs and roared at Jake. Reggy fell back in fear and hid behind a light post.
“Fluffy!?” Abel yelled as he exited the pokemart with bags in his hands. “What are you doing! Stop that right now!” He demanded.
“Why the fuck should I?!” She growled.
“Fluffy! Enough!” The twin glared. Fluffy was his own pokemon so he was used to the illusions and could see right through them. Infact, Abel has never been fooled by zoruas’ and zoroarks’ illusions. The only thing he saw was his little zorua sitting on the pathment with a mischievous grin on his face.
Jake stood to his feet when the zoroark appeared before him. Surprisingly, it didn’t really phase him much. Illusions were meant to be scary but rarely could they ever be painful unless the illusionist acted out, but Jake hardly even found this scary. If anything, it was slightly adorable to see Eden snarling at him.
“That’s awfully rude of you. I’m just trying to help out.” Jake grinned straight at the zoroark. Kip, however, did not have the same reaction. He flinched at the sudden change, but quickly became angry and gave a nasty warning yip for the shapeshifting monster to back off. When it didn’t, Kip let out a squeaky roar and spat out a wave of water at the face of the creature. However, the water seemed to miss completely.. even go through it and fall to the ground making a puddle that had a curious cry spot in the middle.
Jake chuckled. Kip missed and yet still managed to hit a target. “Really Fluffy, I don’t know why you have to be so mean to me.”
Abel nodded silently and looked back at the pokemart. He must not have noticed Kip or just didn’t really care, because without another word the twin walked into the store.
Reggy watched Kip appear out of the scarf and sqeaked with excitement. Another pokemon? What fun! The drilbur walked right up to Jake and started sniffing his pant legs.
“Hey what are you doing?!” Fluffy protested and dragged the mole away from the man. “Don’t just walk up to this douche!” He warned. Reggy looked confused. Abel seemed to trust him; why didn’t Fluffy?
“What so bad about him?” The mole yipped. ” He’s ganna help us find Cain. I thought he was nice..”
“Well you thought wrong!” Fluffy bark, fully aware of the fact that everyone (including Jake) could understand him. The fox leaned in closer and spoke in Reggy’s head and his alone. “He may seem nice now but this guy has put my masters in a world of pain since the day he met them. He’s broken Cain’s ribs once and even put Abel in a coma! My Abel! Can you believe that?! That’s why he has memory loss. Now I don’t know what this guy is planning but I know it’s something bad. Just keep your distance alright..” Reggy looked nervously back at Jake and nodded to his new teammate.
I guess there’s more than meets the eye with this guy..Reggy thought.
Jake watched Abel go. Hopefully, this little adventure wouldn’t take up too much of his time. He chuckled at Fluffy and Reggy, giving the zorua a little pat on the head and making sure it was strong enough to nearly topple the pup over.
“Such a cute little rat. Why worry so much? I’m sure you two can carry Abel back if something went wrong.” Abel was only like… five times their size. Should have no problem dragging a hurt twin through the trees. Although, that would only be if Abel got his memory back. Despite Fluffy’s well placed distrust, Jake wasn’t going to hurt Abel while he still thought they were friends. Might even protect him if he’s about to get hurt… but then again… could just watch.
Kip was staring at the drilbur, eyes wide in amazement at the claws on it’s feet. So big and yet the creature was so small. These.. must be friends! Jake was being so nice to them! Kip yipped out a hello and waved a webbed foot, giving the pair a wide smile.
Come on now… how could Jake be so bad when he had a little peppy creature like that in his scarf?
Wait, was Bo really trying to leave?? It’d only been a joke. Alex thought he’d known she wasn’t the type to REALLY do anything like that in anywhere near public.
Anyway, there he was crawling on the floor looking like an angry Dunsparce. The Altonian sighed, nodding briefly to Jake and getting up on her feet. When she stepped over Kai, the wott flashed a sly grin to Jake’s direction. He. Hehe. How about that. No more attention for the guy.
Stepping next to Bo, Alex got down on her knees and sighed. “You can’t leave like that, you understand that? C’mon, go back and sleep. It was a joke.” With no reply whatsoever other than continuous attempts to crawl to the door, Alex’s face slid into a frown.
“Okay, if you’re not listening I’m going to carry you back. You’re not leaving in that condition, idiot.”
Grabbing Bo’s shoulders, she lifted the kid up a smidgen to allow to get a better hold around him. Then it’d be a heave and a lift back to the bed for him.
Bo ignored Alex’s attempts to reason with him, a scowl deeply etched into his features. Vi squirmed in his hold, trying to get to a more comfortable position. She’d rather not be in puking range if it came to that.
The boy bristled when Alex grabbed him and drove his elbow sharply back towards her, jerking it forward again after it made a satisfying crack against what he thought was her nose. Wrenching himself out of her grip, his palms hit flat against the floor again and he forced himself forward as the bile in his stomach rose to crowd his throat.
The floor swung out from under him and he toppled over before pulling himself back up with a grunt. Had there always been two doors? He shook his head to try and clear the image from his head, but both remained in place. Breath shallow and already tinged with the sour taste of whatever was itching to make a reappearance, he pulled himself forward.
“Oh look, a wild jealous toddler appeared.” Jake whispered out to Kai once Alex was out of hearing range. Suddenly a grin flashed over his own face. Samurott was jealous Alex spent time with him. “If you don’t like me getting attention, don’t think too hard about those nights you sleep in your ball.”
Then Bo.. the little shit of a human being.. decided to hit Alex with a noise that almost echoed in the small room.
“ALEX!” Jake snapped out, eyes wide. His palm pressed against the carpet, quickly pushing himself up until he was almost sitting erect to look past the bed and check to see what the damage was to Alex. That was a mistake.
Almost instantly his head spun, world jumping between flashes of colors and darkness licking at the edges as the blood rushed from his head. He only had enough time to whisper out a curse to himself before the darkness crawled across his vision and his body fell limp to the floor again. Everything disappeared and his body slipped into unconsciousness, waiting for his brain to hoard blood again so he could wake.
Abel looked back at the pokemart.
“.Nonsense things like hyper potions and poison heals. I don’t want any of my pokemon dying on me or anything. ” Abel couldn’t imagine losing them too. Speaking of which, Abel all but forgot Fluffy was there he was just staring at Jake in silence.
I don’t trust you. Fluffy said inside Jake’s head through telepathy. I don’t know what you’re trying to pull here but one misstep, one slip up and I’ll rip those yellow eyes right out of your skull. He growled. Though he can’t begin to understand why his boss was asking this prick for help, he was bound to follow and respect his decision. But that didn’t mean he couldn’t plot this guys demise the entire time.
“As for knowing where Cain is, I met someone who does.” Abel said after some time. Than, as if on cue Reggy finally stepped out of the pokemart and onto the street. He squeaked at his master and looked up at Jake.
Who’s this guy?
Awww, Jake jested in his thoughts, pretty sure the zorua would listen in long enough for a response. Aren’t you a cute little distrusting ball of fur. Why would I ever hurt this dear child? Who do you take me for? Some monster? Jake grinned, pleased with the sarcasm in his thoughts.
When Reggie popped out, it was almost a cue for Kip to introduce himself as well. The mudkip poked out of his scarf, giving a long squeaky yawn and looking lazily at those around Jake. Hmm? Oh… who were these people?
“This thing?” Jake pointed at the drilbur, eying it curiously. Strange pokemon to find in Lochesh.. given that Abel probably never left the place.. how did he get it? “Well, let’s get the stuff you need and we’ll go find Cain.”
Hopefully we find a corpse.
