1 Trigger Happy Jack II.V on Mon Apr 11, 2016 11:55 pm

The haze of chaos hangs heavily in the house as I follow Jean into the entryway as Cael takes off out of the house, my eyes wide and mouth hanging open in confusion. The silence rings around us once all of the yelling has faded, and I find myself resting against Jean's arm as I look out the door at a loss. 

"He wouldn't do that-" I say softly, looking up at Jean as I shake my head seriously. "I'd have seen it, I'd know if he did, so he didn't."

"Sometimes you never really know someone," I shrug as I look out the door after Cael and Ljuba. At this point, I don't even know what to do or say anymore. I've been questioning my decision to come since overhearing Ljuba and Marnin's conversation outside the van - hell, I've been questioning it since my car got torched.

"Should we follow them?" I ask, a little concerned about what altercation the two may get into.

"No, I think we should stay here." I say firmly, looking past him out the door. I don't know if that's a selfish response or a sound one, but I know I'm unwilling to go out there right now.

"They'll come back."

"Yeah," I sigh as I gesture for her to back away from the door so I can close it. "I'll be honest, I don't even know what I'd say to either of them right now. I'm still lost as hell."

I frown as I back away, turning to look around before heading to the table of cards we'd all been sitting at just a few moments before. I sink into my seat, grabbing up the tea I'd made as I let the warmth wash over me before taking a sip. 

"It's not our place." I say simply, "She's been bordering on hysterics for days, she'll calm down in time."

"You think he's dead?" I ask hesitantly. "Marnin, I mean?"

I frown as I look up at him, shrugging lightly. 

"I don't know." I confess, "I don't know anything about him or his ex or... What I saw unnerved me, but I don't think he's dead... Though that may be more hope than logical thought."

I nod faintly, my gaze grazing over her for a moment before I look down at the table we'd been sitting at with a frown.

"If half of what I've heard about his ex or whatever he is, I almost hope for his sake that he is," I admit a bit guiltily.

"Nonsense," I shake my head lightly, looking down at my tea. "I haven't known you lot long, but he seems like a tough fellow. I think he's just fine, wherever he is."

"True," I laugh lightly as I sink into my chair and sigh as I bring my drink to my lips. "You should have seen the camp of guys that stole Ljuba's guitar. I swear... I don't think I've ever even hit anyone - all my exercise is for the fairer sex. But Marn, man... he scares me a little bit, I'll be honest."

"He looks like a brick wall under all those shirts and jackets," I nod softly, glancing up at him. "I wake easy, saw him moving about in the van the other night. Changed while he figured everyone was asleep, I guess. 

"So... Are we really going there, though? I know she thinks we are, but we can't really..? I mean, I know I can't, but you and Cael...?"

"I don't know what the hell I'm doing, honestly," I sigh as I run my hand through my hair tiredly. "Not sure why I'm even here.

"Why can't you go?" I ask after a moment.

"This is the Capitol," I shrug, gesturing around us, "This is my stop. Whole point of my trip was to get here, and I'm here

"And aren't you looking after Ljuba..?"

"She hardly needs me when she has an Echo and Marnin," I scoff. "What am I to do if something bad happens? Flirt with our attackers? My skillset isn't exactly the stuff of legend."

"She's going to want someone she trusts when she gets back, though," I frown, "And Cael does not fit into that role anymore."

"I'm not leaving now," I frown, shifting uncomfortably in my chair as I rest my elbows on the table to mess with the cards. "Just... I don't know. I'm not cut out for this shit, Teag... my whole world has been spinning since I set out with these two. This revenge shit is just... toxic. I felt like I was in an okay place with Maja's death. And now I'm off hunting her killer?? The hell is that about?!"

"Maja was her sister?" I ask softly, leaning up to rest against the table as I watch him.

"Yeah," I sigh as I pick at the cards absently. "My fiance... mother to my child... Lju didn't know that last bit, though. We wanted to surprise everyone."

"Oh," I frown sharply, sitting back as my hands fall into my lap and my shoulders sag. "I'm so sorry for your loss."

I snort at her reaction as I glance up at her and smile slightly. "Thanks, but that-," I nod, waving my hand at her politeness. "That's not necessary. I've done my grieving, found my coping mechanisms... I've let go, you know? It was a long time ago... I just wish Lju could move on, too."

I nod vaguely before shifting to get more comfortable, grabbing my tea to take another drink.

"She's odd." I say after a moment. "Not like I'm odd, but odd. I assume she wasn't like that before..?"

"Lju?" I laugh, shaking my head as I give her a look. "No. Well... yeah, but not like this. Lju was... I don't know, she had some issues... sometimes - and dear god please don't ever tell her I said this - I'm sort of happy she isn't like that anymore."

My eyebrows pinch at the peculiar admission, garnering my curiosity as I look at him.

"What do you mean?" I ask with a faint laugh, a laugh that almost feels wrong given the tension that still lingers in the room.

"I don't know," I frown, shaking my head guiltily. "Just ignore me. I mean, she was just a kid back then. We all do stupid, crazy shit when we're young, right? Feel things too intensely, do anything to satisfy our own needs and wants."

I only nod as I glance towards the door impatiently, silently wondering where they are as I take the last drink of my tea. 

"Ah," I say, "I don't know if that's something I can relate to, I've always been on the other end of the spectrum, but I've known others like that, I guess. She seems a lot different now... Or did, when she was still sort of herself."
