thedreamingprophet replied to your post: I think I just remembered… something… Not…  a lot…

Oh? This is good news….Who is it?

It’s nice to see you again, Sunshine.

H-huh? 

-looks shocked for a moment, before giving him a wide grin and clapping him playfully on the shoulder-

It’s good to have you back, man! Hah hah! -he was honestly overjoyed, to the point where he couldn’t be bothered to really keep up his constantly annoyed face-

What about the others? Smile? Ochki?

noface-and-noworries:

“Well, when you do come back- make sure to cross your fingers and hope I’m not in a terrible mood, heh.” Now shoo.

"I’ll be sure to….I wouldn’t want to have a run in with your glass shard or that dictionary again….Not that you’d know the meaning of that, but still."….

-Al took a step out the door, leaning on the wall and finally allowing himself to relax…So it was true, Faceless did lose his memories….and his injuries, and everything, really. It was like someone pushed a reset button.-

"How…stressful…." -he whispered, shivering a bit. He wrapped his arms around himself, the pain in his gut growing. He’d wander some more; he couldn’t return home yet, but at the same time, he hadn’t been able to wake up at home for a while, so it shouldn’t be a problem, at least- "Guess I will just have to try again sometime soon…."

Al couldn’t keep the smirk off his face. If there was ANYTHING he had gotten from his rage self, it was a hint of bravery in the face of guys like this. His distrust of Faceless had returned after the reset, but at least he had an idea of what to do….but that didn’t stop the heated rock in his gut….but it was best not to think about that yet.

“Yes. Very curious, isn’t it? You and I made a deal. You had gotten rid of this thing in exchange for staying at my place. I….can’t make that same offer, but I can probably strike some other deal if you’d be willing…?”

“Ohp- well, you lost me there. I’m not in the mood to be making any deals with anyone, thank you, hah!

I’ve had too many people coming in today for my liking, so I’d rather just sit and read a nice story.”

-Still trying to keep his cool, Al smiles- I understand. You seem to have had a long day so far….

But, you’ll see me again. You ARE the only person who can manage this…..So I’ll just return at a time when you’re…bored. After all…murdering shades can’t be that much fun. -he gives a shrug-

“Well, I have a challenge for you….

Have you even encountered a devil before? A true, hell-born devil?” -he put his hands in his pockets, a serious expression on his face- “Or maybe death himself?”

“Well, these things come to life around me.” -he pulls something from his pocket; it’s smooth and sharp, and about as big as Al’s hand. It’s the horn from their first “order of business”- “You don’t remember this, but you killed one of these before. This is what came of it.”

“That-” How strange. Haven’t I seen that somewhere? Hmmm… He couldn’t recall.

Without noticing, his hand had held his side. The very same one where the gash had been.

“…How curious, haha.”

“Something tells me you already know the answer to that, guy.” He grinned. Of course he did.

-He grits his teeth- “Well, nice to know your winning personality hasn’t changed at all.”

“You and Ochki had a thing, Smile was staying with you after he got ill, and I…I had to hang out here for a while for certain reasons.” -He sighs, obviously very annoyed- “But, since you don’t remember any of them, now’d be as good a time as any to start over….”

"A thing? Haha, please! Is if I have any interest in something like a relationship, hahahaha! But ah, oh well, oh well.

Start over? Still with this, I guess. Oh well.”

"Yeah, damn right ‘oh well’…." -Al stared at him, as if trying to figure something out about him, silently taking note of the returned eye and laid back but annoyed attitude. Just like when they first met. Only now, Al was a bit more mature and nowhere near as much of a child as he was the first time.-

"You dislike boredom, right? Do you like challenges?" -he asked this seemingly out of nowhere-

noface-and-noworries:

darkness there, and nothing more: noface-and-noworries: thedreamingprophet: “Stranger??…..So….you have…

thedreamingprophet:

“If so many people are insisting you knew them, don’t you think that maybe YOU’RE the one who needs to go back and re-consider some things?”

“So…what about Smile? Wasn’t he staying with you? And Ochki….”

"Even if I had known you all, I don’t think I really want to remember any of you." He smiled. Irritating, irritating, irritating.

"Oh? Just what about them? I’d rather not say anything about it.”

-He grits his teeth- “Well, nice to know your winning personality hasn’t changed at all.”

“Stranger??…..So….you have forgotten everyone?”

He didn’t know what to expect after what Ochki had told him, but…this hurt a lot more than he expected it to.

“Here we go with the whole memory business, hmm? …Heh, not forgotten; I’ve never met any of you. None of you seem to get that.”

"If so many people are insisting you knew them, don’t you think that maybe YOU’RE the one who needs to go back and re-consider some things?"

"So…what about Smile? Wasn’t he staying with you? And Ochki…."

thedreamingprophet:

What….what did I miss?

What’s wrong with Faceless? Why’s he being a bigger ass than usual?

“I’m perfectly fine, stranger. Not a clue what you’re talking about.”

He didn’t really care that strangers knew his name anymore. Three people had so far, so whatever.

"Stranger??…..So….you have forgotten everyone?"

He didn’t know what to expect after what Ochki had told him, but…this hurt a lot more than he expected it to.

"rust-doctor replied to your post: What….what did I miss? What’s wrong with…

Apparently he lost all of his memories.”

Wait…you mean like a blow to the head or something?

….Oh man, are you alright Dr. Ochki?
