PostSubject: the eye of a hurricane   Mon Dec 14, 2015 11:15 pm

in the eye of a hurricane there is quiet

In the ever darkening winter afternoon, a girl passed through the entrance to camp. She favored her right side, dragging her left leg along as she slowly made her way to the start of the valley. Her long hair was messy, and her cheek had a nasty cut along it. In fact under closer inspection someone could safely say that the girl was covered in bruises and cuts of some sort. Her eyes darted along the horizon,  checking for a sign of danger. There was a golden sword in her hand that gleamed in the pink light provided by the setting sun, but it was loosely held by her side and she showed no effort to lift it higher.

Jena Zaman had been on the run for a year. First, from the people that inhabited the very place that she returned to. But after a while it seemed like there was more danger for her outside of the walls than in them. It was hard to say what her weary eyes had seen in the year that had past. But one could guess that it was nothing good.

// Kit Parker had found that painting relieved most of the stress. At first when he was younger it was just a fun pass time. When he would skip out on training he would paint. Though he should probably not have skipped training, because that lead to several cracked ribs and other damages that war had on him. Now he relies on painting to survive. With every painting he felt better, healthier. Just painting the skyline helped him out.
Kit set up his easel on the border of camp, painting the picture of the Berkley skyline. He sat in silence, munching on some kind of organic chip that he got from some obscure store in New Rome. As he paints sometimes he would close his eyes, he knew the outline that he wanted, and he liked the feeling. When he opened his eyes he noticed a slumped figure hobble up the Tiber to the boarder. No. That couldn't be who he thought it was. She was exiled, an outcast, a traitor. She couldn't have been that stupid to return to the place where she destroyed so many of her friend's lives. There must of been something in his chips, he was on an acid trip again, something he didn't know. There had to be something that explained what he saw.
He ignored it, what college boys do best, and went back to staring at the crisp blue in his painting. If he ignored she would go away.\\

Jena stood at the edge of the hill for a moment, staring down into the city below. She was gathering strength for what she was about to do next. Something she had been planning in her mind for weeks. Then out of the corner of her eye she saw him. He didn't seem to notice her, and maybe that was for the best. He looked older in the year that had passed, a year that she wished she got to spend for him. But choices were made and things changed and thats why she was here. To correct everything. So, she took a breath and started along the worn path that led into the main city.

Her walk was slow and her breathing labored, but she managed to make it into the main square of New Rome. She was fifteen feet away from the building where she would give up her freedom. And then she stopped. The possibilities went through her mind at lightning speed, trying to decide if this was the right thing to do.

oh god, why am i here?

Kiera...well, Kiera looked like one of her patients back at the infirmary. Her peaceful and loving aura seemed to have dimmed to a steely grey shadow that made her skin seem pale and her freckles like permanent tears that could barely account for all she had shed when she found out that her sister had disappeared and why. But she was done crying over her sister a long time ago. Now she just did what she did everyday since then, which included being a nurse, spending time with Vino, and sneaking off to the Ring at night.

She handed the clerk her denarii and gathered her loaf of bread in her recyclable bag, walking out of the bakery with her black eye hidden behind a pair of sunglasses (that also helped some with her hangover from the night before [she started drinking more often, like once or twice a week; the perks of dating a son of Bacchus]). Kiera had crossed the semi-busy street that had seemed to lose its buzz since the camp was first put in danger.

And suddenly, Kiera's bag fell to the stone ground, and she was racing towards a figure that had appeared in the main area. She was taller than Kiera, armed with a sword, and looked like she had seen several things that Kiera would never understand. Even so, she wrapped her arms around Jena, saying nothing because she felt that if she did, her voice would betray her and turn to sobs. Betray, like how she did The Legion... Her Nemesis side seemed to whisper, but Kiera shook that away. Her sister was here. Her sister was alive.

When she pulled away, she finally did say something even if it was just a whisper: “You need to get out of here before anyone sees you. Now..”

// When the figure passed, Kit felt like he could breathe again. He put down his brush stained with blue into his portfolio tube along with his wooden easel and strapped it on his back. He had to follow her, he had to know if it was really her. He needed Jaci to be there with him, but he wasn't thinking straight.
He has not spoken her name in months, that was the only way to separate his feelings from the truth. He and Jaci were doing just fine as a dynamic duo. Kit stumbled into the main hub of New Rome, his heart beating out of his chest. He needed to focus, to calm down. He felt all of this anger wash over him, and then felt the sadness. It was a horrible combination of emotions and was glad that he didn't feel this combination the first time around.
He clutched his canvas, getting the paint all over his hand. He saw her in the middle of the square, hugging her sister. She was real, he knew that Kiera wouldn't be seeing the same things as he would. Jena His voice was hoarse and bitter, like he hasn't talked in the year since she betrayed everyone.
The name was a sin. A social taboo that he hasn't said in a while. The name was a burden for others too. Angry people who have felt violated and have lost people because of Lear. People like Gwendolyn Rae, who wasn't making out with her girlfriend behind her girlfriend's place of work. "Its her," she yelled, she was a good yeller, "It's Lear's obedient servant."\\

The sight of someone running toward her put Jena in defense mode. She leaped backwards before recognizing who it was. Her sister. Tears welled up in her eyes, and she dropped the sword in her hand, letting it noisily clatter to the ground.

But she could only shake her head softly, trying to avoid Keira's eyes. "I can't." She said, "I need to do this."

Then many things happened at once. She heard shouting from a distance, an angry voice accompanied by harsh, yet understandable, words. Kit had followed her here. He didn't seem as happy to see her as Keira was.

Jena gave Keira a doleful smile before entering the police station. Just as she had planned, she put her hands in the air in surrender and in a calm voice stated, "I'm here to turn myself in."

oh god, why am i here?

She was finally reunited with her sister, and the feeling of grief, relief, and fear for her bubbly up inside of her chest was almost overwhelming. She noticed that one emotion was absent, one that would make more sense for her to feel in this case: Rage. Anger. It wasn’t there and she didn’t know why. She just wanted to get Jena away from this area and into hiding immediately.

Clearly, Jena didn’t have the same desire to hide. Kiera’s blood ran cold, her concealed eyes growing as big as saucers. “Jena, I’m begging you.” She continued in a whisper, looking around them briefly. “You don’t have to do this. You can - ”

Her words faltered when she heard the shouting, the need to run growing in the pit of her stomach. It was scary. It was terrifying to know that those were were targeted towards her once peaceful sister. She looked at Jena with a kind of intense fear that said boldly that she was ready to fight if she was, but that look melted into shock as Jena walked passed her and into the police station. Her tears spilled over when she followed her inside in a poor attempt to stop her.

She’d only been inside of the police station a few times to deliver snacks to some of the officials that worked in there. Kiera had never seen it during someone turning themselves in. The officers and secretaries seemed to look uneasy, some confused, all except a tall blonde woman with her hair pulled into a tight bun. No, that officer looked like she would be ready to break the rules if tempted. This didn’t ease Kiera’s nerves.

”Wai - ”

”The traitor! Arrest her!” Shouted The Officer in a very thick German accent.

// Kit hated that his first instinct was to chase after Jena, to protect his little bird. He fought every aching bone in his body to not run and try to stop her like her sister did. He wanted to watch her get arrested and he didn't want to feel an ounce of guilt for getting closure from that. Jena returning brought back the deep routed anger he had manifested a year and a few months ago. He lost all of his trusting abilities. And even though he and Jaci had created a stable environment in their flat, he felt the anger return every so often;but nothing with this magnitude.
Against his wishes he moved into the lobby of the police station as Jena was being processed. He hesitantly and slowly moved over to where vegetarian friend Kiera was standing, now extremely gripping the painting in his hand. He didn't like being here, he's been here several times because of curfew and other reasons. He never liked how it smelled or the people that were sitting in the small cell. What the hell his she trying to do. He whispered.\\

The general kept her hand gripped on Jena's arm the entire time she was being processed. She knew there was a whole ordeal to come, she had researched criminal law processing before she came. It didn't prepare her for having to look into the face of Kit, standing there looking like she had just killed someone. She never killed anybody. She might have almost been killed herself, but that was beside the point.

She was led into an interrogation room, it was small with only a table and two chairs. She glanced at herself in the two way mirror, and realized what a mess she had become. She looked more like a wild child than the girl who lived at camp jupiter. Lupa would be proud of her if she could see her now. Or she'd be torn to bits for being a traitor.

// Kit had been sitting on the wooden bench in the police station lobby for three hours now. His focus was directed towards his thumbs twiddling in his lab. He couldn't think of any justifiable reason that he was still in here, waiting for any word on what happened to Jena. He should've been outside with the rest of rioters, but instead of rioting he would be hanging out with Jaci and eating pizza and trying to cope with the fact that their rational member was the fugitive when they all thought it was either Jaci or him who would get arrested.
But somewhere deep inside of him he still cared about Jena. Though it couldn't have been buried that deep if he cognitively labeled it and understood. He felt the need to protect her, despite his better judgment. And when the officers asked if he wanted to see her he barely hesitated to answer.
It's not like Kit has never been to the police station. He has technically been there for small vandalism offences when he was younger. And he remembered the sounds of footsteps from his mother when he was in the holding cell. And he hoped that Jena could clearly see the disappointed and fearful face he had on that he shared with his mother all those years ago. Hi.His voice was hoarse and he couldn't make eye contact with her. Instead, he looked at his paint stained arm and hoped for the best. \\
