Hey Zelda, after what happened...are you going to be all right to compete in the tournament? 'Cause I can get someone to take your place. If you're still feeling weak then I'm not going to have you fight and make it worse..!

[All replies assumed voice :3]

All right. If you're sure. [Pause] Just. Rest up until then.

I am certain.

[Her voice is firm, but there's a hesitation as well.]

He...is here again.

"He" who?

W-wait...you don't mean...

[A lot of anger builds up in his voice all at once] That bastard who's keeping you locked up?

Yes, that would be him. He is...not pleased.

Well neither am I! [Growls loudly] I'd slit his damn throat wide open! - [adds hastily] if I could. Since it's your hero's job. But the first thing I'm going to do when I see him here is give him a piece of my mind. It's the least I can do since I'm not giving him a piece of my claws or steel!

You...do not have to do that.

It is me he is angry with, no one else. Yet.

[Much of his anger is beginning to switch to cockiness] "Yet" is right. He'll get what's coming to him. Then you'll be back in charge.

I realize that I cannot stop you from speaking with him; not when he is here, but...please be careful. I could not bear it if something happened to you.

[There's a pause before he speaks; he heard her mumble, though he wasn't entirely sure what it is she mumbled. It sounded like there was some emotion in it...]

I took on the Lord of the Black Abyss - yelling at the bastard over the Internet is nothing compared to what I probably could do. But I will pick my words carefully, so don't worry, all right?

[Another pause, and Darc asks warily as if he doesn't want to sound stupid by asking.] Did you...say something else?

Date: 2009-07-10 07:24 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] aerinos-aoria.livejournal.com
Please do...I understand and know that you are more than capable of handling yourself but...but I cannt help but worry.

[There is a long stretch of uncomfortable silence as Zelda ponders how to answer him. She does not wish to lie and say no, but...]

I did, yes. [A simple answer was best, perhaps he wouldn't press.]

From: [identity profile] halfdeimos-king.livejournal.com
[Chuckles a little] Well try not to worry too much. The last thing you need to do is wear yourself out with more worry. If you want to be concerned about something, do it about, [Thinks] dealing with everyone bowing to you no matter where you go, and calling you by every regal-sounding word in the books.

[Darc is silent for a moment yet again. Judging from her hesitation, it might've been something she didn't want heard. He was about to let it slide, but something in his mind pops up saying, "How bad could it be? You're not afraid of words are you?"]

I didn't catch it. [He's trying to make it sound casual.]

Date: 2009-07-10 07:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] aerinos-aoria.livejournal.com
That sounds frightful. [Her voice was dry, but tinged with humor. It quickly faded though, the realization of her predicament and all that surrounded her weighting heavily on her mind.]

[She is just as silent for a moment, weighing her options. Once she spoke, her voice was hesitant, but firm.]

There is every possibility that I will due here; my powers are gone, and I can't personally stand up to Ganondorf alone. He is...very strong.

I see no reason to further keep the truth from you; in every other instance I would have changed the subject or deflected this, but, as I feel it is important to get this out now, I will not do that. [Zelda takes a deep breath; poor Darc is getting a bit more than he bargained for with this post.]

I care very much for you, and I have for quite some time. I would not be able to deal with something happening to you. At all.

...You...care about me as in...

[There is a long silence, one that can't be expressed merely in ellipses. When he breaks the silence, his tone is incredulous.]

Zelda...why me?

Date: 2009-07-12 06:25 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] aerinos-aoria.livejournal.com
That is what I meant, yes.

[She waits while he is silent, sensing he has more to say than several broken sentences. When he finally does, her response is a surprised one.]

...Why not?

Date: 2009-07-13 02:27 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] halfdeimos-king.livejournal.com
I just don't see why anyone would...like me like that. I'm not good looking and I'm not exactly what humans would call "Prince Charming". And you...you're...beautiful and nice and strong. You could have anyone you want. I don't understand why you'd want...someone like me.

Date: 2009-07-13 02:32 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] aerinos-aoria.livejournal.com
I do not see why I would not care for you in such a way. Also, I am not human. [She almost sounds amused, and probably would were she not so flustered.]

Well, now you know. The information is yours to do with as you please.

Date: 2009-07-13 03:21 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] halfdeimos-king.livejournal.com
I still don't see why you would care for me like that...! [He's incredibly flustered as well - his usual defences are dropping.]

...I don't...I don't know what to do.

From: [identity profile] aerinos-aoria.livejournal.com
[She's hesitating; she feels extremely bad for putting him on the spot.]

I did not wish to cause you embarrassment of any sort. I...do not expect you to do anything. You do not have to do anything.

Date: 2009-07-14 02:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] halfdeimos-king.livejournal.com
But shouldn't I? I thought admitting feelings like that is a big deal. You really don't expect me to do anything about it?

[He makes a sound as if he's about to say something else, but he stops and grumbles to himself. There are some curses mixed in their, but the only person they're addressed to is him.]

I thought liking Lilia was confusing enough...

From: [identity profile] aerinos-aoria.livejournal.com
I suppose...it is a big deal for me. But no, I do not expect you to do anything about it. It was just...information I wanted you to know. [In case she never sees you again. She doesn't quite understand his last statement, it sounded as though he was mumbled.]

...I...did not catch that.

Date: 2009-07-14 02:21 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] halfdeimos-king.livejournal.com
Oh. I just said that I thought liking Lilia was confusing enough.

[Darc is so, so grateful that his post is locked - especially given what he says after a moment of pause.]

Well...I'll just say this. I do...I do care about you. I don't know what kind of care it is. But it's there, all right? I wouldn't be so damn worried about you stuck in that tower if I didn't. I've lost enough people in my life...!

...Don't tell anyone I said any of that.

[Growls] I probably sound like an idiot.

Date: 2009-07-14 02:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] aerinos-aoria.livejournal.com
You do not sound foolish. I would think that out of the two of us, I would be the one looking quite the fool right now. [Her voice sounds wry, and slightly amused.]

I will not tell anyone what you said. You do not have to worry about me. [At all, because she doesn't think she has much time left anyway.]

Date: 2009-07-14 03:08 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] halfdeimos-king.livejournal.com
[Very simply/matter-of-factly]...I don't think you sound foolish.

I do worry, for a different reason. [Long sigh - aaaand it's time for a strategic attempt to switch topics.] I also wanted to tell you I'm gonna save a special seat for you in the stands. It'll be next to the stairs and torch where I'll be watching.

Date: 2009-07-14 03:39 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] aerinos-aoria.livejournal.com
Ah...[She pauses. She is extremely thankful that he can't see her.] Thank you.

[Zelda pauses at his subject change, relieved for it, really.]

Ah, that will be nice. Thank you, Darc.
