[Early in the morning on July 5th, after Jane Smith's uncharacteristic behavior was put to an end, were someone to go on a walk throughout the park, they might come across an unusual sight.

Jane Smith is sitting on a park bench hidden somewhere between the trees. Or at least, at a glance it appears to be her, but at second glance, she doesn't look exactly the same. Her features are younger, more a 24 year old girl than a 30 year old mother, and there's something less perfect and put together in her looks.

Maybe this time, it's Samantha Achewood, the girl Jane Smith used to be, sitting by herself. She appears perfectly contented and peaceful with her eyes closed, perhaps napping. But on closer inspection, she isn't breathing and she has no pulse, and her body is cold and lifeless to the touch.

There's no cause of death to find here. Samantha simply went to sleep and will never wake up.

But that isn't the only surprising thing one might notice about Mayfield today. No matter where you look or what you might do, Officer Grady is nowhere to be found.]

It has been said that sometimes the only thing we can choose is our time and place of death. Personally, I do not subscribe to this belief but...

[ He looks at the crane, finally, and says ]

You do honor to the dead then?

She deserved better.

[As did the Russian man that she had left a paper crane by.]

Everyone here does. Is she gone for good then? I didn't know that was possible here.

It usually isn't.

But I think she is. ...Just like the Russian man.

[She'd reminded him of his daughter.....she wished she'd have been able to help him.]

I see. And what were the circumstances surrounding that? From what I have gathered that took place before I was here. [ Garviel for a moment wonders why he is asking her, then realizes that despite his discomfort with her nature, she has been completely honest with him, as far as he knows. Her disturbing demeanor is just that... disturbing, not dishonest. ]

It started a year ago. On the 4th of July. The entire changed to reflect a Russian model. It was just as inaccurate as this town is. They claimed they were rescuing us.

However they began handing out random impossible tasks and killing and maiming those who could not get them done. Then the Mayfield group managed to steal us back.

A strange Russian man appeared, going from house to house. He spoke of a world that was destroyed by war. And that the two groups, the one we had just left and the one in charge here were trying to escape it. He couldn't control his random teleporting and eventually he was found and killed by the people in charge here.

Interesting. You have given me much to contemplate about the nature of this place.

[ There is a long silence, easily a minute or two. ]

Thank you.

[Ai remains silent the entire time.]

You're welcome.

I'm not sure if there is anything I can do here... I don't know much about how mortals treated their dead in this time. Do you think we should bury her? Burn her?

[identity profile] 2011-07-12 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
For now we should leave her. People need to know what has happened.

[identity profile] 2011-07-12 09:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Very well then. Good day to you, I will spread the word amongst the people I know.

[ He rises, and prepares to depart. ]

[She nods and remains sitting. Pulling out another piece of paper and starting to fold it.]
