Week 24, Day 1

Who: Marco and Rin
Status: Closed
Style: Action, present tense
Where: Mizusato, in their home
When: Week 24, day 1
Rating: PG? PG-13? WHO KNOWS.
Warnings: Marco.

[ Turning into a kid has its whiplashes. One minute, you are innocent and bam! Not so innocent. Well, as innocent as kids can be. Marco knows for a fact that kids can be cruel, so it's more of a matter of temperament, really. Though what kind of kid tortures ants? Not that Marco is sympathetic to ants. It's something he notices but doesn't really care about. Not really. If he cared about a lot more things, he would've been like Cassie. Or crazy. Or both. (One has to shudder at the though.)

Even so, Marco has to count his blessings. Nothing horrible has happened while they were kids (yet), and considering the last time Marco got turned into a little kid, this is an improvement.

A better improvement.

Although little-him totally trashed his own room. Wow, it's a bit amazing that little-him is worse at making messes than current-him.

Probably comes from the fact that Marco is used to make tighter, more controlled messes for the Yeerks to clean up. He pulls his little wall of pillows into a pile, gathering them up. ]

[ Marco looks up, and thinks, Oh. ]

Come in.

[ He picks up several robes that were tied together into a makeshift rope He's trying to remember why decide a rope made out of clothing was in order. He's pretty sure Mary Poppins was involved in the logic somehow. ]

Um, yeah. I forgot just how much of a wild child I used to be. Good memories. How about you? Played with dolls, or did you went outside and made mud cakes for dinner?

[ He got one knot and tries to untie it with limited success. Jeez, he must have pretended to be a sailor - he never knew he used to be so good at knots. With a little wiggling, he lessens the knot until the sleeves were free. ]

When I was older I . . .

[ Took care of my depressed dad? ]

Hmmm. Hang out with my friend Jake. Played video games a lot.

[ He looks at the robes-made-rope and then looks up again. ]

If you got sailor's hands, sure.

[Good thing she doesn't ask, because Marco would drive himself crazy just explaining the concept of a video game, so he's grateful that she hasn't pursue the topic.]


[He gives her a glance, and he wonders.]

While I was playing cowboys and Indians by myself, what did you do when you turned young?

What did you do, tell them that their ears are too big?

[ Marco shrugs. He honestly doesn't remember much this time around - probably because his imagination was so crazy. ]

I did fine. Kinda shut myself in this room, which is probably an improvement last time, when I pretty much ran around in the woods.

[ Thank god for the Hitomi, or otherwise he might have gotten lost. Not that it matters, though. ]

Where is he now? Your bodyguard Manji?

[ Weird to think of him as her bodyguard. But then again, didn't Marco acted as a bodyguard of sorts in the few months they were together? ]

[ Yeah, Marco notices there's been a string of that lately. But it has happened before, so it's not like its surprising. He keeps his reservations, so that way should anyone he's been closer than usual, it won't feel that bad when they disappear.

Maybe it'll be better for Rin to not be so close to everyone. Or something. Being here so long, Marco really doesn't know what is really right thing to anymore when it comes to things like this. ]

Yeah. I lost friends here too.

Best thing we can do is to keep trucking.

[ Woah. Um. Okay. Marco isn't complaining about it, though. He'll just allow her to do it. ]

Yeah, I know the feeling.

[ Normally? He doesn't like talking about feelings. It takes away the issue at hand, and Cassie is better at personal intuition than he is - he's all about the cold hard facts and the cold hard ways to get around a problem. That's how it works.

But there aren't any cold facts other than "people disappear". They do. Rin has. Marco has. One day, Marco will wake up and find Rin gone, poof, without her Hitomi like last time. Or maybe she will find him gone, no osprey will come to the window anymore, no more jokes through private thought-speak. That's cold facts right there.

Truth? That's an entirely different thing right there. ]

But if we allow that to really get to us - as in, really cripple us - then ultimately, there's no point. We're a part of something we will never remember in the end, but we still gotta find something better for ourselves.

And as for me, [ Marco jerks his head to the side and his lips quirk into a smile. ] I rather go out laughing.
