Jill's Journy

Dec 27 00:10:50 <Dawny> Dark. It's so dark. The burning in her chest starts to dull, to almost nothing. She felt something on her, then nothing, then,,,maybe? Who knows. All of a sudden a flash of light, the sound of rushing water, then nothing again. She blinks a few times and and looks around. She was standing in a clearing, sunlight streaming down on her.
Dec 27 00:12:07 <Dexanote> "… What."
Dec 27 00:13:05 <Dawny> "Hm?" Jillian turns, barefoot. She feels the grass under her feet, the air smelling sweet.
Dec 27 00:14:02 <Dexanote> Behind her, a hazy, looming thing opens its eyes and squints at her. With a pumpkin smile and the bladed crest, the Reaper Chainshank looks confused. "The… Yor tha first?"
Dec 27 00:14:58 <Dawny> "Mr. Shank?" Jillian smiles widely. "When did you come home?"
Dec 27 00:18:13 <Dexanote> "Ho-… Hh. Okay. Whaz tha last thing you remember?" hhhhhrattlerattle
Dec 27 00:18:55 <Dawny> "Um…we were going to the ship to get some stuff…"

Dec 27 00:23:29 <Dawny> "We needed fuel, and bandages…oh, and munition."
Dec 27 00:23:51 <Dexanote> "An' what 'appened when you got to tha boat?" good god what day is it
Dec 27 00:25:28 <Dawny> "We took the zodiac, and there was some thing on the boat. I..there was water. My waist hurt, I can swim, so my chest burned."
Dec 27 00:26:36 <Dexanote> flicker. "But did ya ever get OUT of tha water?"
Dec 27 00:27:28 <Dawny> "I…I don't…I must have. John would have saved me…or Jason or Alice."
Dec 27 00:28:06 <Dexanote> He leans in close. "I don' think yeh'd see me if they did."
Dec 27 00:28:59 <Dawny> "I used to see you all the time Mr. Shank."
Dec 27 00:33:17 <Dawny> Jillian looks down and chews her nail. "Did I die Mr. Shank?"
Dec 27 00:33:29 <Dexanote> "Looks like." A path splits to their side; he starts down it, barely touching the grass.
Dec 27 00:33:54 <Dawny> "I go with you?" Jillian starts after him.
Dec 27 00:35:50 <Dexanote> "Yep. Yor takin it a lot better th'n most of tha other drowners."
Dec 27 00:36:51 <Dawny> "Other drowners? Did John die too?"
Dec 27 00:37:58 <Dexanote> "Oh no, 'aven't seen John. 'es prolly alive still." He blinks, thinking. "'ed be too pissed off ta die like that."
Dec 27 00:38:20 <Dexanote> "Wonder 'ow 'es doin, mm?"
Dec 27 00:38:28 <Dawny> "He was in the water with me…"

Dec 27 00:39:40 <Dawny> "Can you check on alive people?"
Dec 27 00:39:46 <Dexanote> "Were you wearin that silly robot thing?"
Dec 27 00:40:04 <Dawny> "Samson isn't silly."
Dec 27 00:40:21 <Dexanote> "'s heavy, innit?"
Dec 27 00:41:15 <Dawny> "Yeah. But I'm light…" Jillian shrugs and looks at the trees.
Dec 27 00:41:19 <Dexanote> They pass over a stream and suspended bridge made of rope and wooden planks, the sun hanging lower and lower in the sky. "But yeh, I know John's alive still. You c'n prolly find 'im on yor own when he kicks it."
Dec 27 00:42:02 <Dawny> "But can you give him a message?"
Dec 27 00:43:12 <Dexanote> "… now whazzat?" they pass under a great arch, of stone and gold. A stark structure, in the green, foresty place.
Dec 27 00:43:52 <Dawny> "He tends to blame himself, and he drinks when he's depressed…just…tell him I love him and it's not his fault?"
Dec 27 00:45:19 <Dawny> "This is beautiful, where are we?"
Dec 27 00:45:53 <Dexanote> "…Mebbe." The woods stop, opening to a vast beach. Across the sea, a great many lights flicker into view as the sun falls below the trees. "We're nowhere, Jillian."
Dec 27 00:46:23 <Dawny> "Do I just…live here forever?"
Dec 27 00:46:44 <Dexanote> "I don' know how it works, it's jus' nowhere." He points his Scythe across the beach. "When yor ready you'll find a boat. It should take you Across, to yor final place."
Dec 27 00:47:16 <Dexanote> "… You COULD wait 'ere for John, but time doesn't happen here. You could feel like iz foreva."
Dec 27 00:47:33 <Dawny> "Or like it's only a second"
Dec 27 00:47:57 <Dexanote> "Or that, yea."
Dec 27 00:48:59 <Dawny> "And I do love the woods…no mosquitoes, no bees, no ticks."
Dec 27 00:49:58 <Dexanote> "Yor gonna stay?"
Dec 27 00:50:22 <Dexanote> He looks sideways at her.
Dec 27 00:51:08 <Dawny> "I…I think so. I don't want to go somewhere new, with new people, without him. I don't like people."
Dec 27 00:53:26 <Dexanote> He rattles, his breath like clinking bones. He presses the butt of the Scythe into the ground, looking to one side; a hut grows from the sand, formed from wood and thatched flowers. "Yor home until 'e comes. I'll give 'im yor message, if 'e doesn't kill me first. 's hard for me to do things in tha world of tha living right now."
Dec 27 00:54:29 <Dawny> "Thank you Shank. I guess sense I'm already dead…" She hugs him quickly. "Make sure he knows I love him."
Dec 27 00:55:20 <Dexanote> His expression sours briefly. "G'night, then, Jillian."
Dec 27 00:55:45 <Dawny> "Goodnight Mr. Shank." Jillian walks into the hut and sits.
Dec 27 00:56:29 <Dexanote> He watches the hut for several moments before vanishing. Till next time, Jillian.

Dec 27 00:58:30 <Dawny> "You're a good man Mr. Shank" Jillian lays back and closes her eyes.
