"Shit- well yes- no!" Grant was obviously flustered, stumbling a little over his words. "No one is allowed in here except teachers."
He was grinning until he heard the word ‘teachers,’ excitement deflating, shoulders slumping, expression falling flat. “Oh. Great. I landed in a school?” He drawled, sounding excessively disappointed.
"I didn’t join my cousin," she mumbled, turning the corner quietly. "Watch your step, it’s slippery." Laura stepped gingerly over the slick red spots on the sidewalk. "They’re terrible about cleaning up their messes." Part of her felt bad- just throwing him into this wouldn’t do a thing. "Anyways. I didn’t agree with Wyatt. My dad raised me to be firm about good and evil, you know? He was the Source of All Evil once, but he had also been good too." She let out a sigh. "Good and evil don’t really exist anymore, though."
He stepped over a few puddles of blood, glancing at them for a bit longer than normal. The scene was eerily similar; replace the city of concrete with a console room, and it would’ve been like he was a few decades younger again. “My grandfather taught me to do whatever I thought was right. No matter what, even a hero could be seen as a villain by someone else - he knew that better than anyone else did.”
"Hey- you can’t be in here."
"Ooh, finally landed somewhere interesting, haven’t I? Why not? Something secret here?"
"It is. But that’s how it goes." Her feet carried her over the cracked pavement, her face indifferent to the cries of pain echoing through the air. She couldn’t let their pain get to her anymore- she had helped to save as many as she could, and even that wasn’t enough. "A little tour of the area. Again, this is one of the worst parts of the city." Laura grimaced slightly. "I wonder- it might be safer to hide our appearances. Or at least my own, for now. I’m pretty sure I’m high on the Most Wanted list."
He tried his best to keep his composure as Laura did - funny how she was probably a fourth of his age, yet could hide her emotions so much better. The screams brought waves of memories of people he hadn’t been able to save to the surface each time. His mother, his grandfather, the people that had died because he just…wasn’t the man his grandfather was. “What a coincidence,” He said, in an effort to lighten the mood, “so am I. Just not on this planet, though.”
"Who did this to you?"
"I’m ashamed of you."
"I hate you."
"You disgust me."
"I love you."
"Don’t go, please!"
"Just leave already."
"I don’t care about you."
"I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many dogs at once…"
"I don’t love you."
"You need to sleep sometime."
"Come on, just hit me!"
"Leave me alone!"
"Don’t touch me."
"I wish I’d never met you."
"Do you have a cuddle buddy yet?"
"Mind if I sleep here tonight?"
