“Of course I knew him, he taught me all of my mistakes in life…gave me a new one to fuck up.” He said this with a shrug, as if such news was nothing new for him to say, something that didn’t matter. The breeze was inviting, at least to him, he hated the warmth that followed with sealing a contract. His skin tingled for hours after each one.
“Well,” he said, “he’s had many play toys, depends which subject of torment you were meant to be…” His brow twitched, trying not to expose his curiosity towards her and what she was, which he still hadn’t figured out completely. “I’m supposedly the epitome of ‘lying in the bed one’s made’, as he would tell me. He said he had an epitome for everyone.” He nodded towards her. “What were you?”
Cerulean eyes glanced down to the dusty ground. Words that echoed through her head day in and day out voiced by a sound that was so much more soft and delicate than the harsh bite of the Scottish mans accent. “The epitome of water; I couldn’t ever stay in one state for too long. Not happily, anyway.” The smile that tugged at her lips was a sad one.
What a fitted punishment, tying down the child that could never stand still for too long. Maybe that was her problem; she was always so willing to jump ship. Like she couldn’t ever find a place to call… home.
Which explained why he used blades on her. Though that didn’t mean he didn’t let everything splayed on his little table pierce her flesh at least once, he just found she screamed the loudest and reacted not only physically but emotionally when he used a knife. With herself tied up and all control given away, she squirmed the most under a focused dagger.
Her throat was suddenly choked with emotions and she had to blink and swallow to pull herself together before looking back to the demon. “Seems I wasn’t so fortunate to get something new; not this time.”
”I don’t pay attention to that prick anymore; I have better things to occupy my time with.” All amusement left her face as she looked Ro over once more, slightly curious about what she was talking about but finding herself not really caring.
“Good, then you dont have to know.” She sighed, slipping her hands into her back pockets. “What do you say, how about we go out for a drink?”
