- Night fell for the second or was it third day since she had made the deal with the entity? Since then she has been true to her word, and came back to her newest home, every single morning, but at night she was free to take Cyrus about and show him things. So far he hasn't been to happy with her choice, oh well, she thought it was a good idea at the time, but she always bought him sweets since then and it seemed to kind of ease some tension between the two of them. Tonight he didn't seem to feel like going out, he accidentally scared a few people, but Rina attempted to persuade him to come, to no avail. So she shook her head a bit and figured she'd try again tomorrow, for now she made her way out of the wooded area and into the streets of Rowan lakes, she was bounding off towards the diner. They had the best pies, in her opinion at least, and Cyrus seemed to enjoy them a lot to, she figured she'd try and win him over with a huge one. Rina often enjoyed a very intense amount of sweets, more than the human stomach should be able to take, and so odd jobs it was for now, at least every other night. Tonight being one of those nights she could enjoy what money she had made. She even managed to get herself a new dress and pair of shoes, the enitiy said something about a representative of theirs not looking ridiculous while going out and about. She wasn't sure what that was about since it seemed to be pissed off st her laughing at it, though it wasn't it, but it's statements. She was sure if it was in her shoes it would of done the same, but none the less she considered to do something nice for it as well when she got enough money to do so. Soon enough she hummed along as she spotted the diner and would open the door with a gentle touch, breaking things was not in the budget. "Careful.?" She muttered to herself as she entered inside and glanced around and found a booth by the window and just picking up the sweets menu. Her blue hues softly starting to read over the words and the look of concentration spread across her soft gentle features.
- Gabriel Kain Something had been bothering Gabriel since he had come to this town, and it wasn't about his work. His work, for the record, being a therapist to Alex, was going about as smoothly as expected. The boy was somewhat resistant to the advice offered by Gabriel, but he at least listened and generally did the homework assigned to him. But kindred were always a fickle group to work with: difficult as their brains (along with the rest of them) reset whenever they got proper rest. On top of that, Alex hadn't had therapy in some time, and had a lot of emotional baggage to wade through from the rough life the boy had, not to mention all the current events going on. So Gabriel had his work cut out for him. But no, that wasn't what had been bothering him. Ever since he had gotten to this town, his left arm had been aching in a very specific spot: where his Mark was, on the inside of his forearm, just above his elbow. Sometimes the ache would get worse, and others, vanish entirely. But it always returned. He had a suspicion about it, and that suspicion was confirmed as he was walking through the town, taking a chance to stretch his legs after a long therapy session spent with Alex. Glancing in a window across the street, he saw a face sitting in the diner that he never thought he'd see again. It had been almost three hundred years, but there was no mistaking his daughter, especially as he felt his Mark briefly flare to life, shooting pain and a burst of power through his body. Even now, it reacted to hers. But it had been a long time, and Gabriel was easily able to subdue the effects as he crossed the street and made his way into the diner. He walked over to Rina's table, wondering on what he'd say as he did. Did she understand why he left? How he had to leave? Or did she hold a grudge? He couldn't really blame her if she did... His expression was stoic as he reached her table, but there was a softness in his eyes. "I wonder what your mother would say if she saw how you've changed," were, for some reason, the words that came out of his mouth. "For some reason, I never expected you to dye your hair." Even if she had reached her 300th birthday, Rina still was a young adult now; clearly she had some of the same tendencies as regular humans did at their equivalent ages.
- Rina Kain For the most part Rina hadn't really paid much mind to her mark acting up, it always did at some point, it wasn't exactly like she had proper training with how to use it. So it had some serious side effects for her when it did come about, so she just assumed the slight burning feeling was that. Mostly she had learned to subdue it enough to be as 'human' as possible that was her only goal, at this point. She wanted sweets today and was currently free to do so, so her mind soon got off the mark at least until she scratched at her lower back a bit in annoyance. Finally it stopped, she went back to reading the menu in front of her as she licked her lips in anticipation of the many desserts she wanted to gain this evening. Maybe take something for Cyrus too, he seemed to adore them, maybe a different pie though this depending on her finance count. For now she would just bide her time and enjoy her mini vacation from worry and concern of the deity she struck a peculiar deal with. Though a different presence seemed to draw her attention away from her endeavor to select a bunch of sweets to gorge herself on, it sort of felt familiar, at the same time it did. She hadn't really give much thought to the man she once upon a time called father, other than what her mother told her about the man she barely knew him. Let alone would she recognize who he was? The voice that followed the male's presence was met with blue hues "I'm sure my mother could careless, she is dead after all" she spoke frankly, then she would raise an eyebrow at the man, she could still feel the burning, though she wasn't really one to jump to conclusions, that was foolish to do so. "Well I'm living how I choose to, and besides it's not as if it's a horrible combination" she told him with a slight shrug, she adored her hair, it had been this way for quite a while. "Is there something I can help you with?" She asked as she sighed and placed the sweets menu down as her desire was being slightly interrupted by this man, who felt like she knew, but was unsure. A two year old tended to not have much of a retained memory, so he should just be frank with what he needs.
- Gabriel Kain Ah, he had hoped her own Mark's reaction would clue her in, but that had been in vain. Of course he didn't expect her to remember him from her toddler years so long ago. But he had thought perhaps she would from photographs; assuming his wife kept any. But he had changed a bit, now, too. His face was more gaunt, and in the past he had had a full beard. Perhaps not large changes, but enough. "Perhaps, but I believe that will be up to you," he said simply, reaching over to roll up his sleeve. He presented the mark just above his elbow to her, waiting to see her expression. "It's been a long time, Rina. I almost didn't recognize you at all. But I suppose sometimes a parent knows these things... Do you have time to sit and humor your father with a chat?"
- Rina Kain Most the time she was in tune with her form and mark, but it still had it's odd moments of being wrong, $so remaining objective. Though with time everyone would change, or adjust their appearance accordingly to the Times they lived in, often times she changed up every twenty to thirty years herself. An eyebrow was raised in response to his words, what was he playing with riddles for, her hues drifting over to the man as he rolled up his sleeve. At this point she was thankful she hadn't been holding anything as far as a plate or cup. It was possible that she might crush it. Her blue hues went wide, slightly changing green as well, before sighing some and taking a deep breath. She hadn't realized she stopped herself from breathing for a few moments. "That's a bit of a surprise I suppose, with considering you weren't exactly around that long anyways, but I have until the break of dawn, so welcome to sit down" she motioned to the other side of the booth. Her hands grabbing up the menu Again as her mind swirls with thoughts and emotions, she wasn't sure how to feel about this exactly.
- Soon their waitress came by and Rina ordered the whole chocolate pie, the woman slightly taken aback by it. None the less wrote it down. "Anything for you sir?" She asked him as she was waiting for a possible order. "I think that it maybe you who has a lot to talk about, I on the other hand only came for the sugary treats, but none the less are correct" she told him as she eagerly awaited the sweet chocolatey goodness she wanted to sink her teeth into. Though she wasn't about to spill the beans on the deal she made, a lecture wasn't something she wanted, she had a reason for her making such a deal. She wondered what Cyrus was up to, probably exploring the woods in hiding. "I've been fine, I am still alive after all, not that it doesn't matter does it?" She asked back, maybe a bit of a bite back at him for being gone so long, or just not even being there when she passed away. "Perfectly fine, I sold everything and left just as she asked me to do, and started to just travel til I got to a place I enjoyed and stayed long enough, or at least until people found out who I was a daughter of, then started the fleaing for my life; helping others out when I can, and leaving life as simple as that" she stated in a more just factual way. Closed off was an understatement when it cane to her heart, she wasn't just going to let him in just cuz he showed up finally.
- Gabriel Kain "Some coffee and a scone," Gabriel reported to the waitress, before looking back at Rina. He listened to her comments, not reacting to the bite to them or the negativity. In fact, he was quiet stoic, at least until she finished and he let out a sigh. "Therefore, am I correct in assuming you do not understand why I left?" He asked simply, waiting for her answer. He couldn't blame her, of course, for her anger. But even so, even after all these years, while he didn't expect this to be easy, that also didn't make it any easier for him to hear the hurt in her words. It was natural for a parent to want to assuage the trials of their children, and felt even worse when they were the cause of them, of course.
- Rina Kain "Alright, I'll bring those for you shortly" she spoke and went on about placing the orders and fixing his coffee and a glass of water for Rina. "Nope, it's perfectly clear why you left, she would tell me all the time, not that it helped or made anything better" she told him as she took a deep breath. "If I ever had a choice in the matter I would of preferred it if I hadn't been conceived at all...then again you should understand the stigma that comes with holding the mark alone, right?" She asked him. "Then again, the one time I thought you might show up was in her last days, she did her best to shield me from every hateful taunting words, being bullied with physical blows" she spoke as she felt herself squishing the table a bit to hard. "Oops..." She muttered and pulled her hands away where finger imprints were. "But she was just a woman, with a child, and no father around to keep either of them safe....at least I would of hoped you been there at my loneliest moment in time, but You weren't there, we're you...she died thinking you would come get me...and you didn't" she told him as her blue hues shifted to green again
- Gabriel Kain Gabriel waited a moment before speaking. He needed the time to collect his thoughts. "Rina, had I come any sooner than this, your wish of not wanting to exist would have been granted," he said bluntly. "Even now, I can only assume your mark pains you a bit. It only would have been worse had our meeting happened any sooner; you would have been crippled, in the best case scenario, or dead at worst." He took a breath then, exhaling it as a sigh. "I truly am sorry that I could not be there for you and Laynia, or that you and your mother did not understand the situation better. Even when you were an infant, she did not understand. We celebrated when we found out you were a girl, because we believed it meant the curse would not be upon you, as it never had been before. But when your mother found out, she kept it from me in hopes that I would not have to leave. I fear that even in her final moments, she did not truly understand the risks, or perhaps believed that if she ignored them, they couldn't hurt us. She was, after all, only human. But as for myself, I was not willing to bet on that. I'd rather have a daughter who is alive and has a grudge than a dead one."
- Rina Kain Tina would wait with the silence between them as their drinks were deposited on the table "thanks" she muttered to their waitress who would place the pie in front of Rina and the scone in front of Gabriel. She left them to their conversation and Rina picked up the fork and scooped a bit of the pie into her mouth, giving a light hum as she ate it. Mulling over his words a bit. "I have no clue how long you and her were together, but if you knew her as well as I possibly think you do then you would of known that even in life's most darkest scariest moments that the bond of love could even over come this" she began. "It's the only way I've been able to keep the demonic side suppressed for so long as I have, through love of caring about others more than my own well being,, it's subject to it, as darkness will never be able to over come light" she spoke taking another scoop of pie."Even in all of that, why would you ever risk any child accepting the same fate as you?" She asked frankly as she looked at him with her blue hues again. They shifted with her emotions so it was often they would change at any given moment. "I didn't ask for this, nor would I ever of wanted to be here if this was to be my fate for only God knows how long....it was and will always be a curse, that I would rather it die with me and be the end of it forever" she told him as she had thought long and hard on it over the years. "But one thing I think that you've got wrong, I don't hold a grudge, it's just pain, for being alone so long, I've gotten almost used to feeling it or rather maybe numb to it" she told him as she continued to devour the pie before her.
