breatheinthefog: (existential crisis)

I'm going. Let's just leave it at the fact that I can't stay.

Be careful. It's dangerous to wait around in one place for too long, you know.

(Kaoru won't be responding to this post, though you may thread amongst yourselves about her abrupt exit and cryptic not-warning. Anyone going to her room -- yes, she has a room, it just hasn't got a bed and she sleeps in the infirmary -- will find the three books she owns [one on Amicus, one a history of Reial, and one a sex ed textbook] and the bracelet cobbled together from bits of metal that Erika got her for Lunasa, as well as various flowers she received for Amicus drying on her desk. You may call dibs on her abandoned stuff if you wish, though some of you might be less inclined to than others.)

Kaoru, what's happening?

[Moments go by.]

Don't leave. [But he already knows he's talking to a closed connection.]

[Why was she...?]


[identity profile] 2011-03-26 09:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Ryuuki? Could you check her cabin? I'm still on the Convoy.

A-all right.

[The communicator picks up the sound of foot step, and after a moment, the sound of a door opening. It appears that it's being jostled around a bit as Ryuuki walks.]

I don't understand...why would she leave...?


[identity profile] 2011-03-27 08:56 pm (UTC)(link)
I don't know, either.

Does it look like she packed?


[identity profile] 2011-03-27 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)
...give me moment...

[The sound of a door opening, and then a short silence.]

There's some books here..also a bracelet and some flowers.

I guess this could be just what's left after she packed...but...

[But she doesn't seem like the kind of person who would keep anything that she hadn't planned to keep...]

[Small sigh] Hmm.

What do you think about this?

Re: [Voice]

[A pause.]

If it hadn't been important, I don't think she would have kept it in the first place.


[identity profile] 2011-03-30 08:22 am (UTC)(link)

Do you think she cleared out with nothing but the clothes on her back because she was...afraid, and in a hurry?


[identity profile] 2011-03-31 02:40 pm (UTC)(link)
...I think it's a possibility. But that begs the question...what was she afraid of?

[As he asks this, there's the sound of shuffling as Ryuuki slowly gathers up the flowers on her desk.]


[identity profile] 2011-04-05 02:00 am (UTC)(link)

[A soft thud as he stacks the books.]

Why didn't she ask us for help...? [The question isn't necessarily directed at Hisoka.]


[identity profile] 2011-04-07 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
I don't know...

It's just that she left a goodbye at all. Maybe that was for our sakes. And I think, somehow, that she did not want to be forgotten. But what is that warning, anywyay? She thinks we're in danger. But from what?--what would she be warning us against except what she herself has experience with?

[slow burn]

It's Kaoru-logic, that's what it is. And whether it works out to a warning or a cry for help, it's the best she can do. I'm going to understand it as both.

[Voice] So, so late... orz

[A sigh and some grumbling (something that sounds suspiciously like, 'this is why I thought she was a ghost...geez.') but his voice is more sure when he speaks again.]

I'm holding onto her things until we see her again.

[Voice] Me too

[Is glad Ryuuki has thought of that.] Yeah. Seems good to be hopeful...
