exhausting, utterly exhausting. this day when all stood upon ichor spilled sands bordered by corpses or rotting flesh and thinning bone, as tensions grew thick and chocking in such hateful manner, it had almost been too much. reminders within a cunning smile of blackened night lacking dancing stars in endless void, traitor's scent and warmth within browns.
it was miraculous that memories, rooted deep within ache of tragedy riddled bonds, had not swallowed him whole as he stood a gentle storm upon border he so loved. he'd made it through, however. and albeit having been raw in utmost, had stood ground impressively in regal authority. but once all had been said and done, passer-byres and onlookers trickling away into setting sunlight, hypokrisis had been left with hallow doubt and reminders chasing whispers and smoke beneath moonlight. he was reminded that gaze filled with unfamiliarity hurt far more than that of one mixed within love and rage. reminded of a lover who'd forgotten him, reminded of a past that haunted him, reminded he had so much to learn, and reminded he couldn't be free to fall apart yet. he had made a mistake, this was truth- paid for it, and solved it, all in the same day. but even still, he needed to discuss something. perhaps to make one final apology.
he had sent for dione as he stood on outskirts of border beneath silent stars, they needed to talk.
with this in mind, with what he may become, what he had the possibly of having to do, hypokrisis sits beneath sugared-sweet moonlight in midst of grave contemplation. a message had been sent to their newest member, a frown was worn to pollute features of more gentle nature. a truth was resounding in the concaves of tattered mind of what could happen tonight, and he was craving so badly the ash of a cigarette. but he contains himself as he waits. and it was a shame really, how much he'd craved for those long gone then and now. he was tired of being strong, he wanted to fall apart. but he couldn't. he didn't know if he'd ever be capable of doing so again. and he was alright with that, he'd have to be.
