milliways_bar oom 3 [ the world is burning down]  
Miharu is in quite the familiar place. It is one that he had never expected to see again: the no man's land, the beach set as the corridor between desolation and drowning. A skeleton city, as far as the eye could see; red water, a sea of red that had no end.

There are many landmarks here. He is ignoring each and every one of them. If he were to be a detective, he would fail at it. No investigating - mere wandering. Miharu did not really need to look, anyhow. The scar on the palm of his hand would let him know if he found whom he was trying to find.

He's not angry with Kaworu, exactly, but he is also not very happy with him. It was easy to figure out some of the tricks with his memory now wholly intact. But he cannot say he would not have played them, himself, either... so there they were.

Miharu accidentally left Kaworu awhile ago. He hopes that the angel has not done this in return.

[ where's north from here? ]
Kaworu hasn't really seen this place in a long time, either. It looks like he and Miharu both have that in common. As he didn't think Miharu would ever show up here again, he hadn't really tried, either. Anyone he could run into here, he could run into elsewhere.

Simply put, his usual haunts now were the monorail and the bar.

It would be a lie to say it wasn't avoidance. At this point, logic says that Miharu has figured out what Kaworu did - and didn't do. That Yoite has figured it out.

The easier way to deal with this had been run and hide. As this has only ever led to positive results in his life, this isn't something he would have been dissuaded from.

Kaworu had, in fact, been heading for the monorail. The bar wasn't the place for him today. But it seems that the bar has decided the monorail isn't the place for him, either. No, instead he gets to stand on a nearby road and stare in terror.

Deer in headlights here. Few things bring on this reaction point out this is denial and you'll make it happen, but apparently this is it.

He's not stupid enough to try to run and hide. He can feel Miharu's presence through the scar on his hand, so it obviously is the same for the other teenager, now.

Stand and wait. He'll let Miharu set the rules of this meeting - the first time he's ever done so. It's the best thing he can do.

[ no matter what the progress, or what may yet be proved ]
Miharu may feel a tugging on his scar, but as much as he is looking for Kaworu, he's somehow ended up avoiding him. It doesn't help that sometimes it is hard to tell whether his emotions are from the connection or from himself. How can he tell the difference, especially in a place that compounds everything?

He's dumped his shoes. Usually he goes nowhere near the water - he knows what it really is, after all, and that doesn't just spook him, it flips him out. Wouldn't you, if you knew the water around you was actually the human race?

He can feel the sand between his toes as he walks towards it, he can feel the light waves hitting his ankles. He can feel it, but he ignores it all.

Miharu may feel tugging on his scar, but the other physical feelings are more distracting, if he concentrates on them. Sand and water and not paying attention at all.

[ keep it together, kid ]
Okay, see, that made Kaworu take action - and one could accuse Miharu of ignoring him exactly for that reason. This boy cannot ever take being ignored. He just can't. Why do you think he endeared so much to his Shinji, the one that was harsher and rougher than the one in the bar?

The deer in headlights is gone, replaced by the angel whose heart and mind demanded and commanded all attention possible. Kaworu is certainly not going to run, but he is also certainly going to follow.

If 'follow' was defined as 'approach from a distance and smack someone over the head.'

Yep.

[ the bad feels good to me ]
One could blame Miharu's reaction on instinct, but honestly, he would back it up in a second. Kaworu deserved it and deserves it, therefore he is going to get it.

Usually the most Miharu would give is an open-handed slap, but apparently this time is special, as he attempts to punch Kaworu instead.

Wonderful.

[ we stop the fire, quench the heat ]
Whether Miharu succeeded in catching Kaworu off guard, or if Kaworu just let it happen - well, that is likely not very clear. Both inspire the same emotions from this particular angel. Either way, he is going to have a lovely bruise soon enough.

Honestly, that is okay, as it is a reminder to himself that he is alive. But that doesn't mean he is going to permit a second one. So he grabs that hand of Miharu's, holding by the wrist, not very careful with it either.

"You let me do that," Miharu accuses, his tone rather jarring, even to him. "That's unfair."

How it is unfair is not quite clear to him, but it sounded like a good thing to say. Good in his head and even better out loud.

"Does it matter?" Kaworu shrugs dismissively. "You made your point in either case."

And he holds that wrist just a little bit tighter.

"Of course it matters." Miharu hates being dismissed and it's enough to distract him from that pain, at least for a moment. "It does!"

He's aware of the hold on his wrist now, he can feel it, but he ignores it. He's very good at that.

"Why?"

Silence before Kaworu answers himself. He doesn't need Miharu to, really; any answer the other teenager would provide would be unsatisfactory, anyhow.

"Because you're a brat?"

He's not fond of anything he does being annoyed, but he'll let it slip for the moment.

How generous of him.

"Yes. Exactly."

Thankfully for Miharu, Kaworu is used enough to his insanity that he takes that in stride. Used enough to both their insanities.

"At least you're self aware enough to admit it."

"Better than some around here."

Taking the grip on his wrist in stride was getting annoying for Miharu, as well as somewhat boring. He briefly considers kicking Kaworu to get it back, but he pushes him instead. No light push, either.

Oh, how violent he is to his best friend. As well as vica-versa, really. Their relationship was picture-perfect enough for a magazine.

Stumble. Stumble, fall? Well, yes, it is hard to protect one's balance with that. Let's hope that this does not backfire on Miharu. It would be quite a pain for him to get hurt.

Miharu falls as well, yes. Perhaps this is what he gets, perhaps it is what he deserves, but it isn't very pleasant. Too much weight pulling on his arm, and, well.

Something is off. This is a little different than words. It cuts deep with pain but in another way entirely. But he makes not any sound. He would never be that silly.
最後のシ者 morphëus in mentem: with your joker calling cardcreationofwill on November 23rd, 2010 10:20 am (UTC)
Miharu doesn't have to give any indication of pain, anyway. The scar does that and while he can't really share in Miharu's pain, he knows it's there. Along with his own from Miharu falling right on him. Not that he weighed very much at all.

"What did you just do to yourself."

Completely bland tone, doesn't betray him or his worries at all.
