Peace Interrupted

Post by Apocalypse on Tue Jan 08, 2013 7:22 pm

Jake sighed in relief as he touched down on a tree branch. It was finally the weekend and he could get away from Darks Academy. The school got boring quickly after Mr A disappeared. He still finished most of his homework though, wouldn't be good to get expelled or spend the rest of his life in detention after all. Turning his head around to scan the area, he noted in satisfaction that it was empty, not even a single animal in the clearing he had sparred with Demetrius the Artist in. He stepped off the branch and landed softly on the ground. Finding another tree that provided more shade, Jake laid down and closed his eyes. The sound of footsteps, twigs breaking and grass rustling woke him up a mere five minutes later.

Demetrius was crossing the forest, he was being louder than normal but that was because his date had recently ended. It went so well up to the end, he said something along the lines of 'I'm curious how long this will take before you notice i feel nothing' and she slapped him and stormed off angrily, lightning snapping of off her limbs. He sat down under Jake's tree and put his hands on the back of his head. His cheek was still stinging too.

Jake sighed and stood up, turning around as he did so. The Artist was the one who had disturbed his peaceful slumber. He noticed that his cheek was slightly red, his date went badly then. "So how did you end up with that?" Jake asked, stressing the 'that'. It was rather obvious what Jake was referring to of course, the slap mark was rather obvious on Demetrius' face.

Demetrius looked at jake, unsuprised. "Obviously she hit me,I only said the truth about myself, I'm assuming saying I feel nothing and most likely never will is bad?" He said running two fingers against it slowly. "But what's the worst that can happen now?"

Jake smacked his hand into his face, what was that idiot thinking? Telling something like that to his date, that was just asking for pain and trouble. "Demetrius? Never do that again. It was the worst possible thing you could've done." The half-dragon said with a sigh. "The worst that can happen now is that you're gonna be single for the next couple of weeks, maybe a month. Or until you decide to try again."

Demetrius shrugged, the motion was slightly limp. "I've been single for longer than that really." He said. He could be blamed for his blunt shot to her head when he said that but hey, he never talked to a person but jake anyway.

Jake shrugged as well, the Artist could chose what he wanted to do with his life, it wasn't Jake's place to order him to do things he didn't want to do. "So why did you come back to this clearing? The Perpetual Forest doesn't really give off a cheerful atmosphere."

"I was aiming to find a place of silence to calculate my mistakes and see how i can fix them in the future" He answered, running his hands through his hair.

Jake raised an eyebrow at the answer, Demetrius seemed almost robotic at the moment. "So how do you feel now?" Jake questioned.

" I feel nothing, like always" he said shrugging without a care

Jake stared at the Artist as the younger boy spoke. Just how much abuse had he suffered? To say that feeling nothing at all was common for him. Demetrius certainly interested him greatly. "That's both a good thing and a bad thing you know? If you feel nothing, you'd never get emotional pain. However, you'd also never feel pleasure, enjoyment and satisfaction." Jake spoke.

"I know that, but feeling nothing against feeling everything that I know too well, is something I know is best" he said. Not knowing pleasure and love is something he grew used to. But satisfaction in his work and in his power is something that he had to learn to avoid.

Jake nodded slowly, digesting the information. Apparently the Artist had felt much emotion in the past, most likely of the hurtful sort. Suppressing or ignoring his emotions were his method of coping. "And what about your art? Do you get a sense of satisfaction when you look at them? They are drawn quite wonderfully." The half-dragon asked.

"On occasion, but the lack of satisfaction makes me press harder to make things beautiful " he said . Demetrius looked up at the trees above them, the sun light peeking through. "The lack of satisfaction is my motivation"

Jake chuckled. "How interesting. Well, that helps in a way. Your art would never stop improving." This was good, at least the abused Artist still felt some good emotion occasionally, Jake would be worried that Demetrius would snap and go insane one day by feeling only negative emotions. It appeared that that wouldn't be the case here. "So, have you figured out what you did wrong on your date yet?" Jake asked after several moments of silence.

"By saying I do not feel, and I plan to never attempt to, it may have translated that she can claim to love me till she died and there is the possibility I never cared for her to begin with" he said. He analyzed the conversation in his head and that sounds about right to him. "Am I correct?"

Jake nodded. "More or less, to put it simply, you hurt her feelings. And you pissed her off too." The half-dragon replied bluntly. "I'm gonna take a shot in the dark here and say that you'd have a much harder time getting a date in the future. Some girls like to gossip, and gossip spreads like wildfire." Jake didn't like to over generalize things, therefore he said 'some' girls instead of 'most' girls.

"So I'm probably going to get the same look of caution and pity if I attempt to approach another girl?" He said. He was attempting to follow this the best he could. Though he felt nothing, he was hard pressed in his DNA to want a girl around. But that was most likely just biology at work.

Jake shrugged. "I've got no clue there, it's hard to predict how girls react." The half-dragon answered. "You'd be better off asking one of the staff at Darks. Togi would be good, she works in the infirmary. She's rather friendly." Jake suggested.

" ask her if I'm being talked about in anyway?" He questioned. The Artist rubbed his hair and looked at Jake. " I guess I could do that, but would that prove effective in any form?"

Jake nodded. "I guess it would. It'll let you see if you have a bad reputation. If you do, it'd probably be better to get to know the girl for a while first, show her that you aren't like the rumors say you are. If not, then just go ahead doing what you did with that first girl. It sure seemed to work. Just try to consider their feelings before you speak. It'd save you a lot of trouble."

"Thinking before I speak huh?" The concept seemed new to zThe Artist. Probably because he didn't really do that to begin with.

Jake stared at the Artist, incredulity carefully hidden from his face, the concept of thinking before he spoke seemed almost alien to Demetrius, no wonder he had so much trouble.

He shrugged. "I guess that could work, but still, that would require me to want to consider every off hand thing I say" that idea made him cock his head to the side. Could he really think about doing something like that?

"Not every off hand remark, just most of them." Jake corrected. Thinking before you spoke was an important thing in life, Demetrius would be much better off learning it now rather than never.
