The day started out amazingly. The sun was out, birds singing, great weather and atomsphere for people to be walking about, doing their business.... I even got to beat up Genesis a bit before I left my door this morning... and you simply have no clue how good it is to beat the stuffing out of Genesis... it is just a part of a healthy breakfast for me.
So, clearly I'm already happy as I'm doing my routine around town. Checking up on people, stop an occasional crime here and there... training... the normal for me here in Tristian. It's just how life was for me......
Until.... I came across my beloved pet Zexalnox kneeling down behind the bush fence of one of the few houses that stood just on the border of town. The heshe knelt there, watching the female that lived at the house as she walked around her house with her baby. The heshe seemed so memerizied by her....
Great. First the clearly a she said she was a he, then heshe tries fighting against wearing the maid outfit they are supposed to wear.... now they're a creep..... great.
"Princess, what are you doing? Aren't you supposed to be back at the house?" I questioned them, my voice making them flinch and turn to me. The princess, aka Demitri, grabbed me and quickly pulled me down to the ground next to him, making me hide behind the bush fence as well.
"Shush," Demitri muttered as they glared at me for a moment before looking back at the woman. "... I'm off today... besides... I.... am just checking up on someone."
"Checking up? This is stalking to me, Princess."
".... you will never stop calling me that, will you? Not even as you kneel here with me before my old home you will still call me that? .....Disgraceful."
"Old home?" both I and my thoughts stated at the same time, believing what Demitri said to be completely false. "You never lived here until recently, Demitri, shortly after I-"
Demitri covered my mouth to shut me up, his glare turning even colder. After a moment of silence, he removes his hand from my lips. ".....Her and I moved here with our child a year ago....I was sent out to Gallia shortly afterwords... where I.....where you.... you...." Demitri muttered softly as his hand tightened. "I....lost my life.... to become your.... fucking... maid.... I had a wife... and a child.... and I lost it all... to become your fucking maid....." He lowered his head to hide his face, but I could still tell he was upset from his quivering voice. "I've had so much.... and....it's gone...."
"Gone? She's right there. You can easily go over there and be with her again." I said, trying to possibly help the clearly upset princess out.... clearly didn't work, since he shook shortly after I said that.
"... I.... can't.....I just... can't.... her knowing what I've become.... she won't accept it... I barely can, let alone her.... You have Sol, right? Surely you can imagine what he would feel if he knew you were trapped in this absurd, immortal life...right?"
As he said that, my mind flashed back. Back to when I asked Maxis to turn me.... although I am glad now he refused... I still wonder what it would be like if he didn't.... if I was suffering like he was for what I put him through.... for me being, in the end, the sole reason for his death.
If I was.... I would hide from my spouse too...if I had my right sense of mind that is.
"....so you do see, " Demitri gave me a sad smile before reaching into his pocket, just to pull out an earring. He grabs my hand and places the earring into my hand, before looking at the female again. "Give this to her, please.... let her know I died... not that I'm like this.... but that I've died... that I've moved on, waiting for her in the afterlife. I want her to be in peace.... to stop worrying everyday for my arrival home."
"But-" Another interruption.
"No buts. Let her know this, for me... please? I want to see her happy when she passes on... not upset... I don't want her looking for me either. She'd definitely attract the wrong crowd if she did... then Mika would be all alone."
"The child?" I questioned. Demitri nodded and pushed me out of the bush fence. Of course, because of the push I stumbled over to a pot.... which I proceeded to break with my head.
The noise caught attention of the female, and she turned to smile and greet me.
.... I had just signed myself up for a long day... and what's worse...? I can barely hear Demitri's sobs from the bush.
.......Damn, I am an asshole.
