[personal profile] creationofwill
Life is very different when there are no humans around. For most of his life, Kowaru had varied between opinions about what should be done with his own self and his own will. He had never even learned that 'will' existed until he was 12. He did not learn that he could employ it for himself until he was 14. And then he died.

He's alive now. He's alive, due to the same boy who'd brought about his death. But it was likely that far more of Shinji died that day than of Tabrisadamkaworu. It was something to make up for, now. He can apply his free will for this.

The first thing to do would be to gather provisions. He had left around two hours ago, when Shinji was asleep, to trek up that broken and bent highway in an attempt to find something usable. He found enough to pass them for now. What he has to hope is that Shinji had not woken up in his absence.

He does not even bother with the long or safe way to get back - he haphazardly makes his way down the hill nearby; slipping and sliding and falling at the end, but a few cuts and scrapes do not matter to him. And ah, he makes it back soon enough - but what will he have to deal with?

Shinji is still curled up, asleep. Surprisingly enough, he's not that cold - Second Impact changed climates, after all. It's actually fairly warm in this strange, post-apocalyptic world. He has his arms wrapped around himself and he stirs as Kaworu comes sliding back down to the beach. He mumbles something and rolls over onto his side - he doesn't want to get up yet, apparently. At least that's what he's mumbling half-heartedly.

Shinji stirs nad his eyes slowly open. He remembers where he is, what's happened - it all comes back. He blinks owlishly up at Kaworu in shock.

"No school...? I..."

He sits up with a small groan, rubbing sleep from his eyes, "...I know. What time...?"

He galnces up at the sky. It's hard to tell.

"...really? It's not that late then. I thought..."

He shakes his head and stares off into the distance for a moment, "...I guess it wasn't just a dream."

He's oddly disappointed. He half-wanted to wake up back in his apartment, with everything normal (relativel) and Misato and... Asuka.

Instead he's on a beach, still. Look at blood red water and white sand.

Shinji glances down at the bag and shrugs, "I... I'm not that hungry right now."

He doesn't. He feels a bit hollow, a bit sick. But he's not hungry. He curls his legs up against his chest, glancing side-long at Kaworu, "...thanks, though. Really."

"...I'm not hungry," Shinji responds. He doesn't want to eat. He just wants to sit here for a while. Not that long. Just a little bit longer, so things will sort themselves out. That's not bad, is it? Besides, maybe he didn't deserve to eat. He'd screwed the world over, anyway.

Maybe Kaworu would touch him again. Hold him close. Part of him wanted him to. Another part just wanted to be left alone. He didn't like this feeling.

"I'll eat later."

Shinji shrugs. People made him do stuff all the time. But if he didn't want to eat, he wasn't going to eat. He just wasn't hungry.

"...not really. Just... everything that happened."

Shinji has no idea, really. He's just drifting in his own thoughts right now. About to go on another introspective journey.

Shinji looks up, blinking, "...control my thoughts? But... Yeah, you're probably right."

He slumps back a little, staring at the sand in between his feet. Really, this whole affair was rather depressing and starting to get to him.

"I'll... I'll try..."

And he really is, for Kaworu's sake. But it's hard for him. Most of his life has been miserable - Kaworu is one of the few things that (briefly) made him happy. Of course, their surroundings aren't helping much either.

Shinji looks up again, blinks, then slowly stands. He reaches out his hand hesitantly, as if afraid that his touch is going to make Kaworu disappear or that hes about to be hurt. He nods once, slowly.

No, one at all. Although Shinji is blushing again.

"...shouldn't we be looking for an apartment? Or a house?"

Not that he remembered many houses around Tokyo-3, but still. It would be more spacious. Why was he thinking about space? They had the whole world.

That just makes Shinji blush even more and he drops his head, muttering an apology. He's still very easily embarrassed, you see.

That just makes Shinji even more embarrassed and he mutters a reply, "N-nothing. It's nothing. Don't worry about it, Kaworu."

Still, he's alive. Which is better then nothing.

"Yeah... there has to be something around here, right?"

He glances around, heaving a small sigh of disappointment. He still wasn't sure if he should even be here.

"No! ...b-but..."

Shinji finds himself dragged (rather unresisting) a few moments later. He stumbles along behind Kaworu and then he's up against a door. He swallows nervously and shrugs.

"I... think I can do that. If you want me to."

Date: 2009-10-11 04:55 am (UTC)

"I-if you want me to, I will."

He doesn't want to make this decision.

"A... a blood bond? Why?"

Shinji looks a bit horrified, "I mean... I don't think that's such a good idea! There's no doctors or anything and if something goes wrong one of us could get hurt and..."

Yeah, Shinji doesn't like that idea.

Shinji looks down and away, "I... really... don't think we should, Kaworu. I really don't."

This is his way of saying, "Let's not and say we did."
