Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary....

Post by I Caught Fire on Fri Aug 21, 2009 1:00 am

Chev was seated on a bench. The mutant he was tagging, a mere boy, was sleeping in the tunnel on the Play Set. He leaned back and closed his eyes; A lock of white hair resting across the bridge of his nose while the rest hung behind him. He 'watched' the different powers past him, taking a bit here and there but mostly just ignoring the flow of mutants.
He had been sitting there for over 3 hours before a power really caught his mind's eye. He slowly opened his silver eyes as if he was awaking and glanced around. He spotted the mutant, a girl, coming his way. He licked his lips and looked away.
This was the day he would leave the boy and start tagging this new mutant.
Venomous, insane, complex mind, interesting appetite, and an adrenaline rushes if he wasn't mistaken.

And, of course, he wasn't.

Cricket. Twitch. Penny. Pennywhistle. Oh! That was a pretty word!

Osprey paused for a breath, then began whistling a sea shanty, and a particularly salty one at that. Something about a sailor with leprosy and an unusually busty mermaid. The lyrics had long been lost into the cavern that was Osprey's head, but the tune remained.

She stretched, a long motion that made her toes tingle. She kept her hands on her head, and then she noticed the boy. Boy, and that was the correct term. Though he had a mature build, his features were still rounded, if slightly gaunt. There once was a derry down derry...; she was wearing her black bandana today, the one that had a flower printed on it. A flower with a skull's face. Ah! The boy!

She skipped over to him, "Isn't this a pretty one, no?" Her lips curled back into a grin. "His hair looks like cobwebs and his eyes are like spi-i-i-ders!" She dragged the last word out in a sing-songy voice, and twirled around once, before stopping, giving the boy her full attention. "He's so pretty, I want to kiss his nose. May I kiss your nose, sir?" The grin died into a coquettish smile.

Chevalier laughed, offering up his nose, not really expecting her to kiss it, but what ever. Her mood was infectious, besides the fact that he could feel the madness seeping in. He blushed slightly from her comments but remained silent out of habit while he leached powers off her.
She was really interesting. Entertaining. And cute.

Have you ever ever ever in you long-legged life...

Osprey pecked the boy lightly on the nose and giggled, stepping back and tapping her lips. "He tastes like a cold glass of lem-on-ade!" She remarked with a good-natured cackle and a pirouette. Then, abruptly, she stopped and flopped into the boy's lap. "Osprey li-i-ikes you-u-u!" She whispered, once more in a singing tone, dragging out the words.

She tapped him on the chin. "Have you seen my coat?" She smiled. "It's white with lots of straps." He collapsed into a giggling heap and fell off of the boy. "Gotcha!"

Chev chuckled. it was the only sound he made with the presence of the mutant he was leaching off. Even so, as she laughed and joked, he felt the flow slow then stopped. For once in his life, he had stopped leaching the others powers within minutes.
He reached his hand down and helped her up to sit next to him. A good-natured smile crossed his face.

One, two, threefourfive, once I caught a fish alive...

Osprey crossed her legs Indian-style once her butt was firmly planted on the bench. She smiled with her eyes half-closed. She poked him in the cheek, "Thank you!" She said, with a small giggle. "You're a nice kid. What's your na-a-ame?" She grinned, showing her fangs, she licked her teeth, catching a trace of her venom. To Osprey, it tasted sweet and savory. Like a chicken cooked to perfection.

"Little kids should not be out here at night," she whispered. "The spiders will get you, with their long fingers and their sharp stings."

He glanced at the playset where the boy slept. He did feel bad for the kid. He had grown up like that after he ran away.
At least he was better off on the streets then at home.
"My na-- You can call me Chev."
He looked away. What was wrong with him? He never told anyone his name.

Six, seven, eightnineten, then I let him go again...

Osprey smiled and latched onto Chev's arm. "There you go-o! Was that so difficult? And my name is Osprey, but I don't hunt fishies!" She giggled. "Tell me, Chev, don't you think 'pennywhistle' is a wonderful word? It just rolls off the tongue and ends with a sharp bite at the end." She ended her statement with a grin.

Why did you let him go? She told her silly mind to stop. There were more important things at hand than a silly song.

Chev smiled and nodded. Pennywhistle was a good word. He glanced up at an oncoming mutant. A Shape-shifter. He quickly absorbed some of their powers. He smiled and turned back to Osprey. With a sigh he leaned back against the bench.

Twinkle twinkle little bat, how I wonder where you're at

Osprey sighed and curled up on the bench, pulling her legs to her chest. For a moment, she simply sat there, rocking back and forth. "So-o-o? Tell me Chevy, why are y-o-u here on this quirky little island? Osprey came here to find someone." She ended with a smile. "Someone im-por-tant to me."

In the beginning there was a bomb disguised as a lamp. And then the lamp killed everyone, but no one knew why. And they lived happ-ily ever after.

Chevalier shrugged. "Born and raised here. This island raised me."
He watched as the boy emerged from the tunnel. He yawn and crawled off to sit on the swing. Chev's eyes left the boy to look at the strange girl next to him.

Twinkle twinkle little bat, how I wonder where you're at...

The rhyme scuttled across Osprey's mind, before stopping and morphing into words. "Really really?" She crooned. "This is island is so chaotic. So devolved. Isn't it glo-o-orius?" She threw out her arms at the last word, as if embracing the whole landscape. "Everyone is looking to eat each other, all they need is an op-pur-tun-ity to do so!" Osprey cackled once more, though this time it was more menacing.

"If you're nice, Chevy-y-y, I promise I won't eat you-u-u!"

He smiled. "Same to you." It was getting easier to talk to this stranger. He settled back and watched the boy leave. He sighed. "Why do you call me Chevy?" He turned to the girl, his silver eyes swirling.

Oh I've got a lov-e-ly bunch of co-co-nuts

Osprey smiled and gently kissed his cheek, "Because-e-e-e you are so sweet and I wanted to give you a pretty nicknaame! Oh, and because you're strong, like a truck with four-wheel drive!" The statement caused her to descend into a fit of giggles, and she fell off the bench. "He he, oopsies!" But she made no move to reseat herself. She spotted a cluster of yellow dandelions, and started picking them.

Tying the stems together, she began making a chain. It'll be a bee-oo-tiful crown when it's done, won't it?

Chev smiled and slid down next to her to sit on the ground. "Chev is my nickname. My full name is Chevalier Ambroise." He chuckled watching the way she made a chain with the dandelions. He had never learned to do anything like that when he was a child....

Let's do the li-i-imbo!

Osprey flashed Chev a genuine smile, then screwed up her face in concentration, writing his name in the air with her index finger, spelling it out as she went. "C. H. E. V. A. El. Ier. Big A. Little m, b, r, o, i, s, e! I per-omise to remememember it!" She sat up and put the dandelion chain on Chev's silvery mop of hair. "Now you're the priiiiinceessss! That means it's time to go to the ball, Princess Chevy-lina!" Quickly, she grabbed one of his hands in her gloved one and pulled him along on a trip to nowhere.

"You have to dance with me, as I've killed the prince and left his head hanging above your bedroom door. He was a fiend, and he cavorted with dragons." She gave Chev a sweeping bow.

He laughed, placing a hand on her hip and started dancing in the elegant, graceful ballroom dance type way. As they turned, people gave them weird looks and hurried on their way. He spun her, a grin on his face.
"Its okay. You are much more gorgeous than the last prince."

I'm going to fly, and if I can't I'll jump

Osprey laughed as Chev spun her. "My dear Princess Chevy-lina, you are as graceful as a sal-mon! All slippery and swimmy! Then she smirked at his statement, "It's not about looks, it's about killing the prettier ones," and this was in her usual sing-song tone. Then she stopped abruptly, and ran in the opposite direction, into a lightly wooded area, the blood pulsing in her brain.

He danced with you too and you killed him, remember? His blood was all red and shiny and delicious. The pretty man with blue eyes and glasses. You danced to Mozart. Mo-o-oza-a-art.

She stopped quickly, flopping onto her back and looking up at the sky. A bird chirped a pretty tune. She whistled along with it.

Mozart, remember?

Chev watched her run off then followed. Why was she running? Had he done something wrong?
He stopped when he came to where she was lying.
He crouched next to her, adjusting the dandelion crown on his head.
"Osprey?"

This is the song that never ends...

Osprey pointed at him. "He had cobwebs hair too, y'know. It was so pretty, and he let me braid it. Except it was to-o-o-o short for real braids, so I made him grow it out. It was per-itty!" She yawned and stretched her arms out. "He made me poison him, then I ate him. He tasted del-ishus." She grinned, baring her fangs. She tasted the venom, tasting the sweetness.

"I wonder if you taste del-ishus too-o, Chevy-lina?"

Chev sat next to her and stared up at the sky. A bird flew over head. A Raven to the normal eye but Chevalier knew it was a mutant.
He sighed and dropped his silver gaze to the ground where Osprey was lying. He sat there and watched her for a moment before falling back on the grass next to her.

Osprey giggled, a sound which soon evolved into a maniac laugh. "Oh, isn't it glo-rious? The world is so big and yet people can't seem to stop fighting!" Then her laughter died into sobs. "Why can't they stop fighting? I want them to stop fighting." She turned to Chev. "Don't you?"

But then she grinned again, "Lolli-pop lolli-pop, oh lolly lolly lolly-pop! A penny for your thoughts, Chevy."

Chev nodded slowly. "I would love nothing more then for them to stop fighting." He gently touched her cheek where a single tear lay.
"Don't cry, Osprey. I hate to see people cry."
He hadn't realized that he had spoken aloud. His voice was soft and gentle.

Osprey almost flinched when Chev touched her face. "My eyes are leaking," she sung, dreadfully off-key. "Soon I'll collapse into puddles and swim like a fishes. Boom di adda boom di adda. Aren't the trees lovely, Benny?" She grinned. "Tell me a story about the trees, Benny. Even though telling me stories drives you cer-azy!"

Benny. Ben. Benjamin. Love you Benny, with your cobwebs hair and your smile that looks like it needs a check-up. Your sister told them where I was and so you ended up dead. The end.

Chev laughed, his hand dropping. He shook his head. "I've never told a story. Never heard one either."
He shrugged and stared up at the sky. It was so peaceful out here in the woods. He yawned lazily.
