    "Who are you anyway?" Lanai asked, trying to not sound rude. "And what happened to the boy that was here yesterday?"
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 5th November 2005, 07:37 PM
    The boy's fingers stilled as he gaped at her. "Wh-what?"
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 5th November 2005, 07:41 PM
    "Where's the boy that was here yesterday?" Lanai repeated, her arms crossed over her chest. "And who are you?"
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 5th November 2005, 07:44 PM
    "What are you..." Then the boy's chocolate-colored eyes widened slightly. He snatched up at tray and stared at his reflection. Murmuring a curse, he set the tray back down .
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 5th November 2005, 07:46 PM
    Lanai sat down on a nearby chair. "You mean...YOU'RE the boy that was here yesterday? But you look different..."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 5th November 2005, 07:47 PM
    "Close your eyes." The boy commanded gruffly.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 5th November 2005, 07:49 PM
    Lanai complied and closed her eyes, wondering what in the world was going on.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 5th November 2005, 07:53 PM
    "Alright." A second later the boy's voice let her know she could open her eyes. And there was the blonde boy- Boots's brother- standing in front of her, the buttons of his green shirt undone just as the other boy's had been.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 5th November 2005, 07:55 PM
    "What the heck happened to you?" Lanai exclaimed, rubbing her forehead. She was beginning to get a headache again, and this event didn't help.

    ((g2g to work))
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 5th November 2005, 07:57 PM
    ((Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! ))

    "Shapeshifter, remember?" The boy grunted. Not that Lanai would know, but he had been so worn out the night before that he had let himself shift back into his natural state. It had happened in his sleep so when he woke up, he still thought he was the blonde gangly cherub. "What're you up here for anyways?" Not exactly the clingy desperation of the day before, now was it?
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 5th November 2005, 10:07 PM
    Lanai looked at the fallen tray. "I did bring you up some food." She knelt down and began to clean up the mess. Luckily, it was mostly dry stuff.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 12:27 PM
    "Oh. Thanks." The boy mumbled. He sat back on the bed and fiddled with the hem of the blanket. When Lanai knelt, he got down next to her and started to help cleaning up.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 02:23 PM
    Once everything had been placed on the tray again, Lanai picked up the tray and headed downstairs. She made up a new tray for the boy, and then headed upstairs again, knocked gently, and entered. She set the tray down on the table again and started to leave the room.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 02:24 PM
    The boy bit his bottom lip as he watched her turn to leave. Say something you dolt!!! "Uh, um... I'm sorry for scaring you. Earlier I mean."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 02:31 PM
    Lanai smiled slightly and said, "It's ok. You just startled me is all."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 03:02 PM
    "I-I didn't mean to." The boy's forehead wrinkled slightly as he frowned. She was just a kid, but Lanai was a stranger so he didn't know what to say... especially after acting like such a baby the day before.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 06:08 PM
    "It's alright." Lanai repeated, smiling slightly. "You just startled me. I was expecting to see the same boy I saw yesterday. Now that I know that you're he..."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 07:51 PM
    Now that I know that you are he... Only a rich person could talk like that. Lanai was incredibly nice and accomodating, yes, but the boy still felt rather inferior- even though it chafed against his pride. "Yeah. Shapeshifter, like I said." The boy replied tersely.

    ((What sort of food did she bring?))
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 08:02 PM
    ((breakfast food. dry food though...like a cereal type thing))

    Lanai nodded and turned to leave the room, feeling like she had upset the boy somehow.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 08:03 PM
    ((Ah))

    The boy stared at his food a moment before blurting out, "You had breakfast?"
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 08:35 PM
    "Not yet." Lanai said, still standing near the door. "I went to the dragon stable this morning."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 08:40 PM
    "Well.. pull up a chair." The boy offered, clearing his throat. There was an abundance of food on the tray, more than he had seen in a long long time. There was more than enough for two.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 08:46 PM
    "No thanks." Lanai said quietly. "That's all for you."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 08:51 PM
    The boy's blue eyes widened as he stared at the tray. "All of it? F-For me?" His mouth started to water but he just couldn't believe it. It was so much food!
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 09:00 PM
    Lanai nodded and smiled. "Yes. It's all for you."

    But instead of grinning or even diving in, the boy sat there, staring at his tray of food. His fingers fiddled with the utensils, but he made no move to eat.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 09:13 PM
    "Are you alright?" Lanai asked when she noticed that the boy wasn't eating. "Is something wrong?"
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 09:50 PM
    "Yes, I mean no..." The boy's shoulders rose and fell with a sigh. "It's so much food. I feel awful eating all of this when there are other people out there without nearly enough. Like Boots, she'll probably have to go hunting mice again. It's kinda filling when you're a snake, but they taste awful."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 09:52 PM
    "Well...Boot's is welcome here also." Lanai said quietly.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 09:54 PM
    The boy shook his head. "She won't come." He obviously felt awful about that as well. His sister, his twin sister, was out who-knows-where, scrounging on vermin when he had a heaping plate full of food. He was warm and safe and getting treatment because she made him, but Boots herself was out in the cold.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 09:54 PM
    "You don't know where she is?"
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 09:56 PM
    "No. Doesn't matter even if I did. She won't come." The boy repeated bluntly. Suddenly aggravated, he pushed the tray aside and stood to his feet. "I shouldn't be in here! I should be out there with my sister!"

    ((When is she going to get tired of thinking of him as "the boy"? ))
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 09:58 PM
    ((hey...you name him. I'm busy enough as it is trying to pronounce strange names in the book I'm reading!))

    Lanai walked over to the boy and gently pushed him back down. "You can't leave yet. Not until the healers say you can." she said quietly, sitting down in another chair nearby.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 10:00 PM
    ((HA! Just give him a blasted nickname ))

    The boy let himself be pushed back onto the edge of the bed, but still looked like he was going to spring up at any moment. "I don't care! It's just not right! We're pals, you know? She looks out for me and I look out for her. But I'm in here, warm in a soft bed with good food, and what does she have? Nothing! A stale hunk of bread from behind a building, a caught rat, maybe a fur coat if she shapes into something like a fox. But that's it."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 10:05 PM
    ((you ))

    "Your sister is able to fend for herself easily." Lanai said quietly. "You really should eat something, you know."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 6th November 2005, 10:07 PM
    ((I'm braindead!! He's not gonig to give himself a nickname anyways ))

    The boy finally stilled and began to eat slowly, but every bite tasted like sawdust trying to slide down his throat. He only finished a quarter of the large serving before he pushed it away. "There. I'm done. Could you... give it to someone? There's always a beggar or two outside the door here."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 6th November 2005, 10:31 PM
    Lanai smiled and nodded. She picked up the tray and headed out of the room and outside. She saw a young boy outside with his mother and sister and Lanai knelt down next to the child and handed him the food. The little boy just looked at her with wide-eyed awe, while the mother smiled gratefully at her.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 12:11 PM
    The boy watched Lanai and the family from the window, solemnly withdrawing when they received the food. Good. At least you've done something right.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 03:56 PM
    After Lanai had given the food to the family, she patted the boy on the head and then headed back to the castle. She considered going up to see the boy again, but she wasn't sure if she should.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 04:40 PM
    ((I think she should. I'm bored ))
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 04:43 PM
    ((lol))

    After wondering for a few minutes, Lanai sighed and headed upstairs. She knocked gently on the door and then entered.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 04:58 PM
    The boy's hand quickly moved from the book he had been touching. He had been so enthralled with the mysterious symbols written across the page that he hadn't lsitened for Lanai's footsteps.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 05:13 PM
    "What are you doing?" Lanai asked curiously.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 05:15 PM
    "Uh, n-nothing." The boy took a step back, trying to act nonchalant. He knew about books. They were for the wealthy and important only and yet he had dared to touch one! But he didn't want Lanai to know because he would get in trouble, maybe even get Boots in trouble as well. So he lied.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 05:19 PM
    Lanai noticed the book near the boy and smiled. "Do you know how to read?" she asked quietly, picking up the book and handing it to the boy.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 05:21 PM
    The boy took another step back. Uh-uh, he wasn't going to touch it again!

    "Do you know how to read?" She asked quietly.

    His chin lifted proudly but he said nothing.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 05:23 PM
    "Well?" Lanai asked, still holding the book out to him. "It's alright to touch and hold a book. It's not going to hurt you."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 05:32 PM
    No, but you might. The boy looked away, his blonde hair falling into his eyes.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 05:34 PM
    "What's wrong?" Lanai asked, setting the book down on a nearby table.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 05:37 PM
    "Nothing." The boy ((who still needs a nickname because this is getting really old!!!!!!)) muttered surlily. But the silence made him so uneasy that he blurted out, "I can't read. Not that I'm supposed to be able to, I'm nothin' but shapeshifter trash. I'm lucky I even know how to add."

    ((so name him ))

    "Why do you say that?" Lanai asked quietly. "You can learn to read if you want to."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 05:47 PM
    ((HE CAN'T NICKNAME HIMSELF!!!! ))

    The boy snorted. "Hardly." He looked up, his blue eyes nailing Lanai in place. "I'm shapeshifter trash. Not accepted anywhere unless they think I'm something I'm not. All I got is Boots. I've never been to a school, never been allowed to even get near a book. I'm better with my hands than I am with my head."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 05:49 PM
    "You think I've always lived like this?" Lanai asked, motioning to the room around her. "If you think that, you're sorely mistaken."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 05:56 PM
    The boy was puzzled but he didn't push it. "Yeah whatever. At least you're... human. You can still be something. I mean, you're here right?" He, on the other hand, was only here because his sister happened to save someone a few years back and he had a bad cough.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 06:00 PM
    "You can be whatever you put your mind to." Lanai said quietly, remembering what her parents had always told her when she was younger.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 06:29 PM
    The boy chuckled humorlessly. "Yeah sure. A bird, a snake, a wolf... whatever I want to be." He leaned against the wall, his eyes on the ground. "Except normal. Accepted."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 07:43 PM
    "You seem normal to me." Lanai said, looking at him. A sad look came into Lanai's eyes as her thoughts strayed to her past. At least you didn't see your parents killed...
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 7th November 2005, 08:44 PM
    The boy didn't notice her eyes so all he did was sigh. "Sure. You've seen me become how many different things? If there's one thing I'm not, it's normal."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 7th November 2005, 10:23 PM
    "Huh? What?" Lanai asked, quickly coming back to reality after getting lost in her thoughts and memories. "What was that?" she asked quietly, trying to rid her mind of her painful past.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 8th November 2005, 01:01 PM
    "Forget it." The boy snapped. "Look, how much longer do I have to stay here? not that I'm not grateful and all but..."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 8th November 2005, 02:05 PM
    Lanai's eyes hardened slightly when the boy snapped at her, but she shook her head to clear her mind and stood up. "It's up to the healers on when you can leave." she said quietly before heading to the door.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 8th November 2005, 02:07 PM
    ((.... Now what?))
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 8th November 2005, 02:08 PM
    ((idk...my brain's kinda not working right now))
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 8th November 2005, 07:55 PM
    ((*tries to think*))
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 8th November 2005, 08:36 PM
    ((have him try to stop Lanai or something? have the healers come in?))
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 8th November 2005, 08:38 PM
    ((Healers are yours Just don't let her leave... unless you have something for her to do of course ))
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 8th November 2005, 08:47 PM
    ((I don't have anything for Lanai to do yet...))

    Just as Lanai was about to leave, the door opened and the healers came in. "Well...let's see if you've improved any." the lead healer said to the boy.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 8th November 2005, 08:51 PM
    The boy groaned. Not them again! "Yeah, sure, I'm fine. Now beat it." He growled, not in the mood to feel grateful.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 8th November 2005, 08:54 PM
    "I don't think so young man." the lead healer said, standing in front of the boy.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 8th November 2005, 09:30 PM
    The boy glanced over at Lanai and the sullenly plopped down onto the bed. "Whatever."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 8th November 2005, 10:29 PM
    The lead healer turned toward Lanai and said, "If you would please wait outside m'lady, we'll be a few minutes." Lanai nodded and left the room, shutting the door behind her.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 9th November 2005, 11:52 AM
    The boy's mouth opened to roar in indignation, but he quickly closed it. Stop being such a baby. You don't want the girl to see them poke and prod you anyways.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 9th November 2005, 12:55 PM
    ((Lock...you control the healers now))

    Lanai waited patiently outside of the room, and considered going back to the dragon stable.

    ((lol. you control the healers for checking out the boy))
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 9th November 2005, 04:24 PM
    ((What should I have them say!?))
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 9th November 2005, 04:35 PM
    ((the boy's YOUR character! have the healers say whatever you want them to say))
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 9th November 2005, 04:38 PM
    ((lol Sorry I'm quite braindead today))

    A few moments later, the door opened and the healers walked out. One had a fresh, long scratch down the side of his face. "Well... he certainly can fight. We've secured him for now, to let the medicine take effect. He should be very groggy but it will quicken his recovery."

    ((They tried to stick him and the boy fought back Now they have him tied down))
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 9th November 2005, 04:44 PM
    ((so am I...I really need to get to bed earlier...))

    "What happened?" Lanai asked the healers. "He fought when we tried to give him medicine." one of the healers clarified. "We have him tied down..." Lanai didn't hear the rest of what the healers said because she walked back into the room and shut the door. She looked at the boy and raised an eyebrow at him. "You fought back huh?" she asked, fighting away a smile.
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 9th November 2005, 04:46 PM
    Veins bulged in his tense arms as he strained against the ropes that kept him tied to the sides of the bed. But then they went limp as his head fell groggily to the side. The boy was so drowsy that he couldn't even summon enough energy to slip out in some other form.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 9th November 2005, 04:50 PM
    Lanai walked over to the boy and sat down in a nearby chair.

    ((sorry it's so short...I'm kinda sleep-deprived right now and not thinking clearly (including my creative thinking)))
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 9th November 2005, 04:51 PM
    (( Go to sleep! ))

    Every few minutes or so, he would try again to break himself out, always failing. When his mind had cleared a little, but not enough to gain enough energy, he began to panic. "I-I can't feel my toes."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 9th November 2005, 04:53 PM
    ((I can't ))

    "Why not?" Lanai asked, standing up and walking over to him. "You need to calm down. Relax."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 9th November 2005, 04:55 PM
    ((Why?))

    "Y-You can't keep me tied up like this. It isn't right!" The boy began to struggle again, failing as usual. It was pathetic and scary at the same time. A little 13 year old girl had him tied up. He was, as always, at her mercy. Pathetic!!!
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 9th November 2005, 04:58 PM
    ((one word...class))

    "I didn't tie you up." Lanai said quietly. "The healers did because you fought them when they tried to give you medicine." She moved back to the chair she was sitting in and sat down again. "I could try to untie you..."

    ((Lanai's not little! wait a minute...yes she is ))

    ((lol))

    "They were... trying to stick me..." The boy panted out, a sheen of sweat covering his brow. "L-Let me go!" The very moment he was free, he'd be gone. Out and away. He'd find Boots and get as far away from these crazy do-gooders as possible.
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 9th November 2005, 08:54 PM
    "Stick you?" Lanai asked with momentary curiousness. "Oh...they were just trying to give you medicine."
    Posted by Locket (Member #89074) on 9th November 2005, 08:56 PM
    "W-With a needle about a foot long!!" The boy stammered out. But no way would he tell her WHERE they were trying to stick him! "Just lemme go."
    Posted by Ellesar (Member #76200) on 9th November 2005, 09:08 PM
    ((lol))

    Lanai sighed and stood up and tried to untie him, but the healers had tied the knots tightly, and she couldn't get them undone.
