Reflections

Post by Margurka on Fri Jan 30, 2015 7:23 pm

I squatted over the pond in the silence of the wood, the washing water over my head being the only sound besides the occasional chirps from birds and insects. The sizzle of evaporating water was as relaxing as the cooling that accompanied it. It felt good to be out of my armor, the hood, my mask laying beside me. The breeze flowing through my clothes was nice here. I began to wonder if I might return one day.

As my hands rolled over the back of my head, I felt where my ear sat fused into my head, the gnarled lumps in my skin, and the balding where the follicles had been irreparably burned. I imagined the glazed eye, and gap in my cheek where the teeth stuck through once more, and I choked back a cry. It wasn't just half of my face that had been taken.

I washed water over myself again, steam rising once more. As my hand rolled over my head again, I felt the scar in my skin that cut a thin line through my hair. I picked at it, compulsively, remembering the night I left. I quickly washed over myself again, not wishing to let the memory overtake me again; and the squelch of tearing flesh drowned from my mind.

I looked into the water, seeing two disgusting faces staring back. His, and the ghoul that was me. "By Volum, you're ugly," I chuckled to myself, speaking to both faces.

I stumbled through a bush coming to a small pond. I noticed someone across it. "Huh? Who might you be?" I took a closer look and smiled. I ran through the pond. "Margurka!" I squealed tackling him to the ground giggling. "What's up, flamethrower?" I asked not caring that he was finally without his mask.

I collapsed under Ella, and the unexpected force of her body, staring blankly at her above me for a moment while my emotions registered. I scrambled over from beneath her and quickly clicked the mask back into its place, before finally finding words to greet her.

"Forgive me, I lost myself in thought far too deeply. I'm embarrassed for what you've had to see."

"I don't care." I shrugged. "Honestly you look better without the stupid mask. So what if your face is melted away and scarred. Everyone has scars, including myself sure some of the physical ones are gone but emotional scars remain. And someone I care very deeply about has some pretty bad ones, but I'll tell you the same thing I told him. Scars are just prof that we are alive, that we have lived." I said sitting cross-legged in front of him staring intensely into his eyes.

It took all the strength in the world I had to keep looking in her eyes, as flustered as I was by the gaze she was giving me. I wanted to laugh, it seemed like such a silly speech to be roused by, and one I was unworthy one. I struggled with the sentence.

"For me though, they are also proof of those who have died. It becomes difficult some days to remove those memories when I stare upon them."

"Well I can't do much about that but I could help make it easier for your self esteem. Of course its entirely up to you and it might take a few sessions. Should you decide to take my offer." I said

"You seem like you hate looking at yourself. When you should not because you are very hamsome. Never doubt that."

I looked towards the water once more, staring past the pool and through the reflection of myself. After a few moments of silence, I looked at Ella again.

"So you think I'm handsome miss Lyghtstone?"

I nodded. "I think your very handsome. Although my definition of beauty is very different than most people. I tend to look at a persons arua and how many scars they have, as a way to find out about someone and what type of experiences they've had."

"Well," I started, having difficulty with my response because of my difficulty Ella at the moment, "I happen to think you're a very beautiful woman, Ella. And I don't just say that to women; even when I wish to bed them."

"You're blushing aren't you? It seems quite effective to me, Colagartrunes aren't exactly known for our tact," I said mouth wide with a smile, poorly concealing my own fluster with a nonchalant attitude and a wandering gaze.

"I'm blushing because I'm embarrassed, pervert." I pouted covering my chest.

"Girls like confidence. You display a lot of it, and you may not know this but you have plenty of fangirls at school."

"Yes well I am rich beyond most girls' imagination, and often prowl for the ones with the most self-confidence complexes," I shrugged, "like that barmaid at the Silver Tongue Tavern. Bar maids seem to have a lot of daddy issues." I stroked my chin lost in thought for a moment.

"Um ew..." I shuddered thinking about my friend having sex with someone I know. "Anyway~! If you want me to work on the physical scars, just let me know."

I shook my head, "Colagartrunes keep their scars. Mine are especially rare. A fire dragon, burned? Unheard of."

"Hmpf," I sat up straight, arms crossed, "I suppose there's a masculine feature to it. Regardless, it is still a repulsive looked. I'm not about to take off this mask for just anyone."
