Darc hoped that the apologies Zelda claimed to owe him didn't involve her previous attack. Whatever it was she wanted to talk about - or apologize for - he would be glad for the company. She was one of very few good friends that still seemed to be around on the community.

Perhaps she deserved a more personal apology of his own too.

It didn't take Zelda long to appear; she'd been here before and it was easy for her to travel to a place she was already familiar with. It had...been a while since she had last actually seen Darc, and the changes in her were actually visible. She'd lost the chalky pallor of someone kept indoors for too long; instead her skin had a healthy pink glow, and she was no longer too thin for her stature.

A few quick steps brought her closer to him, and she stood quietly for a moment before finally speaking.

"It is...good to see you."
From: [identity profile] halfdeimos-king.livejournal.com
"You too," Darc answered quietly but still sincerely. "You look a lot better."

He wasn't sure what else to say, or who was going to start apologizing to who first, so he left it at that.

"Thank you." She was unsure as to where she should start, or even who should start.

"I wanted to...apologize for what happened during the virus. I should have known that is what it was, and that you...that was not you." She might as well start, and with her words she kept her head high and held his gaze. Always the regal one, Zelda was never one to look ashamed, even while apologizing.

Darc shook his head and stated matter-of-factly, "You don't have to apologize for that. "

"I'm sorry for - for everything I said. And everything you had to see."

One hand rose to touch the birthmark on his arm as he spoke. It was hard coming up with the words he wanted to say; he couldn't even tell if there was simply too much to say or not much at all. The one who commented on Darc's video before Zelda made a good point, but he still felt that he couldn't dismiss it all as bygones just yet. Not to Zelda.

"And you do not have to apologize. The place...it distorts reality. It was a portrayel of what could have come to pass, not what did. You cannot dwell on it, it is irrelevant." She shakes her head, and glances away briefly.

"It was not real."
From: [identity profile] halfdeimos-king.livejournal.com
"I know." It was the second time he had heard that, and he was not a victim of disbelief - he acknowledge that it wasn't real. "I know it's only what could have been and it was just a virus."

"It's the could have part. I...I could have been that..."

Horrible? Evil? Just plain bad? Darc trailed off as he had a hard time coming up with the right word. Perhaps, because there wasn't one.

"Could have. But you did not." She watched him carefully, folding her hands. "There are many things we can become, many paths laid before us. It is up to us to choose which one we take. Some are better than others." He of course, knows this she is certain. "You are not cruel."

Darc continued suffering thoughts that protested against her words. That side of him may have only been suppressed and not destroyed. Even though he had never been as ruthless as the virus had shown, he had been close.

"I was cruel before. I chose not to take that path when I chose to fight alongside humans and not against them. But how do you know I don't still have that cruelty inside me?"

"...How do I know?"

She exhaled slowly, her eyes never leaving him.

"Only you can truly know the answer. That is not a question I can answer for you." She paused for a moment, then continue. "I...do not think that you do, however. I think you hold some anger, but cruelty..." She shakes her head."Your choice states otherwise."

His eyes remained on Zelda while he once again touched his birthmark. Conflicting thoughts still flew through his head, but he didn't doubt her sincerity. It was touching that she had such faith in him.

It didn't alleviate his worries, but it helped a lot.

"...Thanks," Darc finally said to her. "I should be stronger than this anyway." His shoulders straightened to show that he still had pride, and plenty of it.

Her eyes skimmed over his shoulders when he moved, and she nodded once.

"You have an insurmountable abundance of inner strength." She told him, crossing her arms. "I have rarely seen the like."
From: [identity profile] halfdeimos-king.livejournal.com
He managed a little smirk at her words. "I wouldn't have made it this far otherwise."

"You're stronger than you think too, you know. I don't even think I could've endured being imprisoned in that tower. I don't do well being kept."

sorry for the delay 8|

She gave him the tiniest smile, nodding.

"It was...not an experience I care to repeat." She murmurs, glancing down at her gloved hands. "A trial on my patience, for certain."

Same here, bb. Same here. >_<

"Let's just forget about it. All of it."

Darc says this suddenly, and looks at first as if he barely even realized what he said. And yet, when he does realize his words, he seems even more assured of them.

"We don't need to keep feeling regret or apologizing for things that have already happened. You and I are better than that. We have what we were fighting for."

At least, he was assured of what he wanted to say. He hoped that it all made sense somehow. He was just so tired of all the sorries and the worrying.

She looks unsure for a moment, but then she smiles.

"Maybe you are correct. These things...they have already happened. We learn from them and move on. Living in the past is detrimental to the both of us."

Forgetting, Zelda couldn't do. But maybe, just maybe, she could move on.

Darc relaxed, glad that she agreed. There had been plenty of suffering and struggling and sorries in their lives. He couldn't exactly forget either, but he'd be damned if he was going to let these things overcome him.

Not that they wouldn't have a place in his nightmares now and again. Geedo still did. He would just have to remind himself that they're dreams, and he's stronger than them.

"Enough is enough," he stated quietly. When he carried on, he crossed his arms and gave her a smirk. "We've got better things to worry about anyway, like our prospering kingdoms. And speaking of which, I still have to see Hyrule."

((OOC: Ah, sorry but I don't remember if we figured Darc's visit to Hyrule was assumed or not...I don't remember much being discussed on the matter at all really. Derp...))
