/* HI. I LIVE. :)
razor ! lisa tells me you’ve been doing well in your studies .
@grandmastrs subconsciously, razor would move closer to the man as they spoke. he was happy to see him. "mmh! very good... it is.. also hard but.. i like lisa. other people, too.."
“ that’s fine , as long as you’re working hard . how’s everything been going ? you fitting in well with everyone ? “
/* hello all ^__^ i just wanted to sat hi so,,, hi :)
/ howlll look <3 https://mobile.twitter.com/4dango_the2nd/status/1526055988943474688
you've got a good grasp of this yes - who taught you ?
@ragnheirs /* yes :'( * with a little smile, he thanked diluc softly and then looked up at him with wide, red eyes. he thought over the man's words for a moment before he nodded and lowered his claymore. * we can.. take break. breaks are... good. * he stated light heartedly and then tilted his head, taking deep breaths. * does diluc want a break?
yes , that's right .. steady there . [ diluc would catch him by the shoulders , gently preventing him from actually falling over . then he stood straight , pausing to wipe some sweat from his brow . they'd been training for quite a while . ] do you want to train for a bit more , razor ? or do you want to rest ? / that's so cute :(
@ragnheirs okay! * the wolf boy uttered with a bit more enthusiasm, a light smile gracing his lips as he watched diluc. diluc was really good with the big sword. different from varka, but still good. in his own way. he was happy to learn from the red haired man, nodding as he watched. * like... this? * he swung in a way that mirrored diluc's swing, his smaller body getting just a tad thrown off balance with it. *
[ rain . it was always rain . why was it that seemingly every time it rained , something would happen to him , or to those he cared about ? when he first saw dark clouds gathering on the horizon , he should’ve known something was wrong . and when lisa told him that razor hadn’t come for his lessons that day , he should’ve guessed . but he didn’t . when he eventually decided he had to look for the boy , he hadn’t had the foresight to bring anything other than himself , his vision and a slightly thicker coat . running outside in the downpour probably wasn’t the best idea , in all honesty . it worked horribly with his abilities , fire and water was never a good match . but he rode all the way to wolvendom , looking around frantically for any sight of the wolf boy . he called out razor’s name constantly , trying to amplify his voice over the sound of the wind and rain . it wasn’t easy , trying to see and listen for anything as well as steer his horse in tandem all at once .. but he didn’t dare give up . what if something had happened ? of course , razor could just be hiding out from the rain , everything could be alright really . he had a feeling that something had happened , and well .. he hated when his instincts were right . his heart leapt with a mixture of horror and intense fear when he finally spotted razor - he almost didn’t dare to believe it . he instantly jumped down from his horse , rushing to the younger’s side in a heartbeat . he was soon bending over razor’s limp , muddied form , hands frantically placed on those motionless shoulders as he rolled him over to see his face . ] [ 1 / 2 ]
@ragnheirs /* oop <3 an ear twitched at the sound of diluc's low voice near his ear, muttering about how they would arrive soon and how he should not worry. razor could barely hear in this state, even with his heightened senses, and even then the words themselves barely reached him. he just heard the gruff yet soft voice of the older male but knew not what was being said. it made him lean closer again and his grip on the front of diluc's clothing tightened. when they got to the winery and he was lifted from the horse and taken inside, he found himself trying to bury his head into the former knight's chest, holding onto him much tighter now. razor was still mostly out of it, slipping between being conscious and unconscious. his head was throbbing and everything he heard sounded distant. "mm.." the boy gave a soft whine and flinched when his need for closeness caused him to press his injured head against diluc. having the wound touch something made him flinch. it really hurt.
/ HI i have decided we should try and finish this </3 [ diluc didn’t know how long they had been riding . it seemed that time passed in a long blur , punctuated with him spurring on his horse and the noise of its hooves on the ground . rain splattered into his face with every movement , drenching his clothes .. but he didn’t care . all that was on his mind was getting razor back to the winery as soon as possible . he certainly wasn’t expecting /movement/ , though . he startled violently at the very /twitch/ from razor , ears picking up on the noise even over the howling of the wind and rain . how did he even hear it ? maybe it was his instinct . or something . he bent down a little , hunching slightly over the younger protectively . he could feel how razor shivered , body shaking against his broader form . and his own heart seemed to crack , anguishing over the boy’s pain . ] you needn’t worry , razor .. we’ll be arriving soon , okay ? [ needless reassurances , really - he wasn’t sure if razor could even hear him . but even if he couldn’t , it still helped a bit to say those out loud . and soon - they were galloping past the low stone walls of the vineyard , skidding to a stop before the front doors . diluc didn’t even wait for the maids to come before he shoved his way inside , calling for adelinde . they had to get razor’s wounds treated , and fast - before infection set in . ]
@ragnheirs /* no it's good hush <333 when the wolf boy was lifted up off of the ground and held in diluc's arms, his head lulled back. his body was probably light and limp in the man's hold. poor razor. limp and bloodied and breathing so shallow it was like he wasn't breathing at all. in his current state, the boy probably /looked/ dead. he wasn't, of course. razor was alive, just out of commission. still, he looked unwell. still, diluc's angst over the situation was understandable. the man had lost so much and tonight, he could have lost another person whom he cared for. soon, razor and diluc were on their way to the former knight's manor and his body was slumped against the man's chest. the wolf boy was cold. the chilly air paired with the rain soaked into his clothing certainly did not help. despite his unconscious state, he seemed to press closer to diluc. diluc was warmer than him. it was his body's instinct to be close. the galloping of the horse jostled him around. a good sign came as a result of this. gloved fingers gripped weakly onto the front of the tycoon's clothing, a /very/ soft sound [ probably one of pain ] parting razor's lips. see? he was okay. he would be fine.
razor─ oh, there you are! i.. brought you some wolfhooks i picked on my stroll, would you like them? not to mention, a few snacks too.
@vivyres no meat...? it's okay.. * despite the slight let down, the wolf boy was smiling again in moments. he was just happy to see the other. * sweet? what kind of sweet? sweet like sunsettias?
ah─ i'm sorry but no meat this time, but i promise to bring your favorite next time; okay? i wanted to bring you something a little more.. sweet rather than savory.
just one more kiss, okay? one more.
@outIands they make head feel.. fuzzy. * the young male mused, arms loosely draping around the traveller's shoulders. *
/ anywaysss .. it's long so ;) [ the abyss order was increasing the amount of monsters it would send , tightening its hold on the city of freedom he had sworn to protect . they were growing bolder , that's for sure . he'd noticed this much during his nightly excursions . but he hadn't expected for them to become so bold as to appear during the day , during a sparring session no less . they weren't /supposed/ to be so active - he would think furiously , slashing his claymore at a cackling abyss mage . but oh well .. it would be adequate training for his young charge . he instructed razor to handle the hilichurls , which the boy seemed to be doing well . so he left him to that while he decimated the remaining , carving them through with searing crimson flame . and everything seemed to be under control .. but he had not accounted for the ruin guards that suddenly appeared out of the undergrowth , single eye blazing fierce orange and arms spinning dangerously . one was annoying enough on its own , but two .. complete with mages and hilichurls ? that was trouble . and when their missiles had fired , towards /razor/ of all people .. he did not stop to think . there was only one thought in his mind : to protect razor . and before he realised what was happening he had lunged , shoving the younger male to the side while he simultaneously raised his claymore , hoping to at least shield himself from the blow . but apparently while he was focused on razor he wasn't quite fast enough . it hit him like a punch in the chest .. or more accurately his lower torso . ] [ 1 / 2 ]
@ragnheirs /* hi :') * fortunately, severe and bloody injuries didn't bother razor too much. he grew up in the wild with animals who hunted meat. he'd seen wolves kill boars and he did the same himself. diluc's injury didn't bother him. well, not in that way. he was bothered by the fact that diluc got hurt, but we already established that. * disinfect...? * he uttered, nodding slowly and staying on his knees, staring at the bloody gash. cauterize? what did that word mean? razor didn't know. using his teeth, he pulled his gloves off so his hands were bare. * just tell razor what to do... i will help. i will.. dis.. infect. and other word. * as long as it was explained in simple terms, he was confident he could help fix this. *
/ HI im back </3 [ he simply sat there , eyes still closed as he put a hand to his head ? it seemed as of now the only injuries were a few small scratches and the large rend to his torso . there probably weren’t any more , so that was a good thing . less to worry about . so far the only one he’d have to pay proper attention to was the biggest cut . the others could wait till he returned to mond . he couldn’t mask his relief when he heard razor say that he’d found the supplies . at least they hadn’t fallen out . there should be the basic necessities there , though he couldn’t say for any /serious/ wounds . he opened his eyes again , taking the pack from razor to look through it . it seemed that everything was still there . ] i need to disinfect it , just in case . but if it’s severe .. we may have to cauterize it . [ he muttered , taking out what was needed . he almost didn’t dare to twist his head and look at the damage .. he hoped it wasn’t as bad as he thought it was . ]
@ragnheirs /* mine is probably shorter it's okay lol * the smell of blood was so strong. razor hated it. it brought back a memory equally as bad to what was currently happening. a memory of his wolf family /getting killed/ because they were attacked. that terrible abyss mage... this was so similar except it was with his human lupical this time, which wasn't any better. he wouldn't let anything happen to diluc. he /refused/ to. * pocket...? * he repeated quietly and then glanced towards the coat. hastily, razor grabbed at it and started searching every last pocket until he found the medical supplies. * found supplies! * now, he didn't know what most of these were for, but he knew bandages wrapped wounds. that was about all he knew, unfortunately. * o-okay... now what? what to do with supplies? * he crawled back over with his findings, sitting besides the former knight on his knees again. the boy tried to hide his worry behind a brave, determined face. *
[ the tycoon stood back , looking over the boy stood before him with a critical eye . dressed in a neat brown jacket with matching waistcoat and shorts , long grey hair now tied up in a high ponytail , there seemed to be a world of difference between this version of razor and the wolf boy who had reluctantly allowed diluc to help him get changed . ( maybe this was what he would've looked like had his parents not abandoned him . ) but now was not the time to think about this . he would look to razor , gloved hand coming up to straighten the snowy collar at the boy's neck . ] does this .. feel okay ? is it uncomfortable , or .. ? i can get you another set if you need it . / :)))
/ LMAO what if i replied to this too ;) yes , that’s right . [ diluc nodded in agreement , giving a soft smile in response to razor’s . the boy really was so cute .. not that he would say that out loud . though - he did note the younger’s less than pleased expression at the sight of the soup . maybe he didn’t like it ? ( .. ) oh , right . razor didn’t like any vegetables other than potatoes . that was an oversight on his part . ] do you not like the soup ? [ he asked , looking down at the wolf boy inquistively . ] if you want , i’ll get adelinde to make potato soup instead . or do you want to have this on its own ? [ he paused then , thinking . it would be a bit of a waste to throw away the soup they had now , though .. ] or .. i’ve heard tomato soup also tastes quite good when potatoes are added . do you want that ?
@ragnheirs /* shh he's doing good so far <3 * lots of spoons. and forks. and those pointy ones. what were they called again? so many dishes. too many. razor scooted his chair a little closer to the table. * ... yes. two spoons! i see them. * he nodded after locating them with his eyes, a little smile on his face. that smile turned into a slight 'o' shape as he listened to what diluc said about the spoons. * small spoon.. * he picked it up, holding it awkwardly in a tight fist. his nose twitched as he sniffed the air once the soup smell hit. hmph. he couldn't smell any meat in it. * use spoon to eat soup, right?
/ he don’t know how to be one so yeah it’s expected </33 [ the man would raise an eyebrow at the ‘ thank you ‘ , slightly surprised by that . but then he nodded , impressed that razor had remembered this was necessary . then he gestured to the cutlery spread out before them , as well as plates and bowls complete with food . ] look at these , razor . do you see the two spoons ? the large one can be used for most foods , but the smaller is restricted to soup , such as now . [ he held up a bowl of tomato soup , pointing to the small spoon just to make it clear . ]
