PostSubject: Lovers' Retreat   Sun Dec 22, 2013 1:34 am


Just outside the southern edge of the great tree sits a tiny little gazebo hanging out over the forest. Moss and flowers overwhelm it wholly, but inside are many silk throws and pillows. Faeries watch over this humble place, providing food and warm drink to the lovers who sneak here for a repose from the tumult of life. In the spirit of winter, banners and strings of faerie lights snap in the wind, and a sugar dusting of snow glistens over everything as swallows nest in the upper eves of the tiny structure. They say that from this vantage point, one can hear the lovebirds singing, even in winter.

Everything seemed rather odd to K.N.I.G.H.T. at this point. She had recently awaken, and this was the first place she had headed to. She had heard that there was a party, and so she had decided that she would go check it out. All the different areas had seemed so fancy, and so she was glad that she was dressed as she was. Somewhat tight black leather pants, a white blouse with some frills hear and there, the sleeves hanging loosely only at her forearms, being tight once more around her wrist to keep from falling down, and an odd mixture of corset and coat was worn. Around her neck a bow neatly tied, and her waist dawned a piece of light pinkish-orange fabric that was worn almost like a sash around it.

Silently K.N.I.G.H.T. lifted a single hand to glance over the black leather glove that was ornamented with gold, and as soon as she was done examining it she moved it to the back of her head to be sure the long blonde pony tail was still neatly in tact. After being sure of her appearance the mecha leaned onto one of the mossy railing of the gazebo. Her blue eyes were looking out over everything, and her ears could pick up the song of the birds. It was a lovely tune, but it also made her nostalgic, and so a somewhat saddened look mixed with the peaceful one that was on her face.

Rune walked onto the balcony and noticed that someone else was there. She payed not much attention to the person noticing only the outfit that was worn. It was a bit weird that she couldn't really pick up the stranger's scent but didn't really pay too much attention to it after the conversation she had just had with a very irate and delusional vampire.

She walked over to the railing and leaned over it looking out at the view but as she let out a slight sigh, it was apparently loud enough to send the chirping birds away. "SO what's with the outfit captain?" she asked a bit puzzled at what to really do, hopefully a chat would bring her spirits up. "Have a ship to catch?"

Slowly K.N.I.G.H.T. lifted her head. She was somewhat distraught that the birds had been chased away, but at the same time there was a sense of relief that their tune wouldn't continue to mix up her emotions. She turned her gaze to the woman that stood beside her and frowned slightly, turning her gaze forward again. "That's not funny..." Her tone was light, and definitely gave away her gender if the woman hadn't figured it out by now. After a moment of hesitation K.N.I.G.H.T. stepped away from the railing some, giving her enough space for what she would do next. "I'm sorry...To be rude." She lifted a hand to carefully grab the hat from her head, placing it across her chest and over her heart as she gave a swift and smooth bow as she spoke in her light tone once more, her gaze cast to the ground as her head was tilted down. "I am K.N.I.G.H.T."

Just as slow as her movements had been when she had lifted her head earlier, K.N.I.G.H.T. returned to a standing position, and with a somewhat melancholic, but relaxed expression she questioned the woman, "Is my outfit really that bad?" She returned her hat to her head before sighing and muttering under her breath, "My Masters would have approved. You go to sleep for 200 years, and people automatically assume you're a pirate based on your outfit."

Rune Turned over and stood up straight seeing that the stranger had introduced herself. Now she could tell that this 'knight' was a woman and she would have guessed her a man at first glance. She was eloquent and proper, much how she liked to act and just because Rune was a bit sad wouldn't mean she'd be rude. Rune bowed as well, "Rune, my name is Rune." she replied as she finally got a good look at the outfit that Knight wore and nodded some. "No, it's not bad. Very nice actually, everyone here seems to wear different clothes so I wouldn't worry about it too much miss Knight." she replied.

Rune wasn't quite fond of the word 'masters' when Knight spoke it. She didn't like slavery and especially that of such a young woman. Granted she didn't quite believe she was a slave by the way she was dressed.

A small shrug came from K.N.I.G.H.T. in response to Rune's comment about clothes. "It's not that I'm exactly worried about it...Well, I am to a degree. I wouldn't want anyone to think I was a scoundrel. Not that all pirates are, of course. But the ones where I came from, and the time I came from, well simply put. Were." She shifted to go closer to the railing and lean against it once more. "And as I am...unemployed...A word that I use fairly loosely...At this time, I would like to look my best." She turned her head to the side some to look at Rune. "Some can say one can tell how much aptitude a being has for a job based on how they dress...and having been made to care for princes and princesses...I'd rather not fall behind in my look, you know?"

A gloved hand casually made its way to her side, carefully caressing the metal hilt of the long sword that was sheathed at that moment in a fairly nice black sheath that had golden embroidering. It wasn't a threat or anything like that, but the touch was more done for comfort. Her face held a deep understanding as well as a slight weariness both mixed together with longing.

Rune noted the movements that Knight made with her hand but didn't pay too much attention to it. It was easy to lower your guard in such a place and with all the locals being ripped from other worlds or from the past, keeping up your guard was probably the best thing to do for yourself. "Oh, a freelancer bodyguard are you then?" she asked. And yes, I always like to keep my image up as well, perhaps you should look into a local guild? Although I'm sure there are peoples here whom would like protection from someone who looks as capable as you" continued Rune with a slight nod before she turned back around to lean on the balcony and look at the view.

"Hm...Yes and no." K.N.I.G.H.T. seemed to be thoughtful about Rune's question before finally speaking up in an attempt to explain what she did. "I was created by a man...Well, I'm not entirely sure why he created me. Probably just to show how advanced technology could be..." She shrugged her shoulders before continuing, "Anyway. The royal family took me to take care of their children, mainly the heir to the throne. I was a...bodyguard, yes, but also...A friend, servant, and in some cases, though I can't disclose with whom, a lover." She turned herself around so she could lean her back against the railing and look up at the ceiling of the gazebo. "I had many Masters in that line, some were...The kindest and gentlest souls you'd ever meet. Others were...Cruel and full of hate, but I must do whatever my Master says. I'm programmed that way."

K.N.I.G.H.T.'s face had lightened up as she spoke of the royal family, but it soon returned to its serious and somewhat grim look as she added quietly, "I had seen many of my Masters killed, or while I was under charge of their children...Die of old age. I was there when the last of the royal line was destroyed, and then I began as you call it, freelancing. Without a Master I'm incomplete."

Rune suddenly started to really pay attention to Knight's words after she used the word 'created' several times. She gave the girl a strange look of curiosity and leaned off the railing to step up to her some. She observed her for a few moment and she wanted to touch the girl's skin and feel her but she managed to resist the temptation. "You're a machine?" She asked quite bluntly not really believing in the girl's words. "Quit pulling my leg, you can't be a machine. Machines don't have long blonde hair and perfect skin like you do..." She observed still gazing over the girl, tubing her chin in contemplation.

K.N.I.G.H.T. stared at Rune blankly for a moment, "I haven't even touched your leg. How could I be pulling it?" She shook her head after that statement and stated somewhat flatly, "I am a 'machine'. My hair has been this length and color since I was created. My skin is so perfect because it is artificial. Father made me to be the perfect woman. I contain a full spectrum of emotions that were programmed into my motherboard. He took the time to actually create artificial nerve endings and place them in my fake skin. I can 'feel' pain like the rest of you...and he placed a part of his soul into me." She glanced away some. "I never knew Father, but at the same time...I always know Father. No one ever told me how long it took him to create me, and I never asked. I simply do as I'm told by my Master. I do not question their reasoning for the order...at least not openly. I'm given a command, and I follow that command."

Rune stood next to Knight facing the same direction she did. She compared their features and listened to her carefully as she spoke. Rune popped out her chest a bit and then looked over to Knight's before she sighed a bit. "Well I would t say 'perfect'. She said with a light chuckle. "Its too bad I tend to run solo, having a follower with me might feel nice for once." She continued before she stopped compairing herself to Knight and stood back normally.

"So what now, lost puppy? Will you be scooped up by the first person claiming to be nobility and be their servant again?" She asked before pushing her own hair away from her face still keeping a vigil eye on the machine's hands. The pirate robot seemed capable enough just by how she looked but Rune knew that you could never judge a book by it's cover.

K.N.I.G.H.T. flinched slightly when she knew what Rune was talking about. Many people before the woman beside her had made comments about her curves, and it did make her feel somewhat bad, but she explained anyway. "It was the perfect ruse for when I served the royal family. Princesses with a woman knight seem easier to kidnap and rob, and such. But one with a male? You tend to be more careful there. The problem with that though, is having a woman around a man all of the time...Things could get out of hand. So...Disguised as a male, but really a female. It was perfect for them." K.N.I.G.H.T. casually shrugged. It made perfect sense to her logically, but now that the time is done with...Well, she almost wished she had been built differently.

Blue eyes blinked at Rune's question and she glanced over to the woman. "I do not work for just nobility any longer. I work for anyone who is capable of programming me to be their servant. So really...The first person who programs me is the person who gets me." K.N.I.G.H.T. scowled slightly. "It isn't exactly the best process since I don't really know what my Master will be like, but there's an emptiness inside when I do not serve."

Rune sighed a bit. "Well no one is perfect so don't let me bring you down. You're plenty beautiful to me." She said as she kept her gaze on the machine. "And it's too bad I don't know how to do Amy of those things you just me ruined. I might have whisked you off your feet while you were here." She confessed with a light shrug. "Not every day in my world you meet someone like you." Continued Rune before letting out another sigh and leaning her hands on the railing again. "Also I'm pretty sure the corset isn't helping with your feminine features. Pushing all that stuff into a square..." Rune drifted off for a bit. "A bit better with tech ology and I might remember if I turned off my stove at home..." She said with alight chuckle as now she was beginning to doubt she even had.

K.N.I.G.H.T. blinked slightly at Rune's words. She turned to face the woman and stared at her for a moment, a slight curiosity on her face. If she were capable...she'd probably be blushing right now. "If you keep up with your flattery then I just might have to make an exception and teach you how to do it." She gazed at Rune for a moment before looking away, her gaze now on the scenery around them. "I wouldn't really say it's a square...I mean, if you look close enough you can see that there's something there. It's just small." She glanced away and added in, "The corset actually gives more shape. Besides...This is what I'm used to wearing. I'm not sure I'm willing to change; even after being asleep for 200 years." Once more the mecha shifted, crossing her arms as she did.

"Don't go soft on me now there Curves, this is a party and I'm being a bit nicer than I usually am." She said with a light smile. "I wouldn't want to get kicked out of here for any reason." She admitted as she met Knight's bright blue eyes. "I never said you should lose the clothes either, looks good on you. Also, I think that before you'd teach me how to do it I'd rather go poking around for flips and switches myself."

"Is being soft such a bad thing? Why be hard and uninviting when you don't need to be?" K.N.I.G.H.T. leaned back once more, looking casual, yet still holding some grace. "Perhaps that's just my memory chip causing me to speak like that though. I prefer to be gentle while I still can." She returned Rune's gaze for a moment before arching an eyebrow. What an absurd comment. "Do you truly expect there to simply be a switch for you to flip, and I'll be all yours?" She gave a light but short laugh. "I'm a very complex piece of ancient technology...Why should anything be easy with me?"

Tune smirked in return and enjoyed hearing Knight laugh a bit, she did make a fair point about being hard and stern even though it was an image that seemed to be part of the Hunter guild. Rune waved away the thought and continued to look at Knight before speaking up. "It may as well just have been a switch, you seemed like you were just about to tell me the answer to your secrets." She teased playfully with a light wink.

"Perhaps another day." K.N.I.G.H.T. quickly shot back to Rune's comment. She shifted and leaned towards Rune some before saying in a teasing tone, "Or perhaps when you can be sure you really turned your stove off." She leaned back again and shot a somewhat cocky smile. "I'd rather not let you handle me and end up messing something up in my mind." She lifted a gloved hand to brush at her bangs slightly before allowing it to return to her side. "I've been around a long time, I'd rather not go just yet." She teased the woman some.

"Fair enough then, I'm sure I wouldn't let just any ol' hobo off the street start opening me up either." She said amused with the mechanoid. She was still having a hard time believing that Knight was a machine but she was something alright. At least when she was teased she could throw it back and Rune liked that about Knight. Many people's didn't understand that it wasn't just for insulting and making and embarassement out of others. "Well I suppose my offer is always open to a friend." She added.

K.N.I.G.H.T. stared blankly at Rune again. She didn't get the comparison, and so she asked. "Are you saying that you're homeless?" She stared at the woman with slight disbelief, but also a bit of wonder. She couldn't imagine that Rune didn't have a home. Quietly K.N.I.G.H.T. moved to sit on one of the throws, placing a pillow behind herself to help prop herself up. "If you still don't believe me...You could always try picking me up. I weigh over a ton since I'm made of metal." She lifted a hand and knocked on the side of her head some. It's not like there was a real metallic sound since there was the artificial skin as well as the glove to cover the metal.

"No I'm not homeless, I just got a home about a week ago. I lived in the woods for a few weeks when I first got here though." she answered as she remained where she was for a moment to look out at the view once more. "Nah, I'm good. I think I'll keep the illusion alive for a bit longer. I should go to the library after this party though. Just because I'm bad with machines doesn't mean I can't learn." she said with confidence after looking back to Knight. She was still very intrigued with the mechanoid and this would require some serious research she thought. "Can I at least guess where you put you batteries?" she said before sticking her tongue out a bit to keep her mood up. She quite enjoyed the back and fourth that they had before.

"Ah. The woods." K.N.I.G.H.T. said nothing more on the topic, but glanced to Rune as she spoke. She watched the woman for a moment before stating with a matter-of-fact tone. "The best way to learn about machines is to read the user manual and actually use them...Not just read books on them." She stared at Rune next though, with a completely unamused face "Put my...? Oh dear God." She shook her had slightly in response as her face lit up a bit. "Do I even want to know where you think those go?" She certainly did have an internal power source, but she figured the woman was speaking about batteries like AA or AAA or something like that.

Rune laughed out loud at Knight's response and held her belly as it started to hurt she was laughing so much. She found it quite amusing that Knight reacted that way even though Rune knew she was joking around. "I had to ask, it was just so priceless." she laughed again trying to contain herself and after a few minutes she managed to do it. "DO you have a user's manual then? I'd like to read that over. I'm already sure that you won't let me go pushing buttons until I have one in hand. We've already figured that much out my dear."

"A priceless statement from a priceless item." K.N.I.G.H.T. shot Rune another one of her cocky grins. She knew that she was worth more money than one could possibly own, and every now and again she didn't mind throwing that out there. A small laugh escaped from K.N.I.G.H.T.'s lips once more as she stared at Rune once more. "No. I don't have a manual. Father wanted to be the only one that knew how to work me. Not that it ended well in his favor...but prove to me that you can be a decent mechanic, and I might let you touch my buttons." She gave Rune a light wink then.

Rune quirked a brow and gave out a small smirk. "Well you're not the only one with buttons that can be pushed." flaunted Rune with her own little wink. "I'll have to make sure that I hide 'my' manual from you then." she returned with a laugh again. "It also seems like I might not be able to afford you, what a shame. Now i'll have to be all alone at home. That won't do anymore." she teased again picking off Knight's priceless comment. "I'll just have to read up on technology then, maybe the library is the best bet after this party. I still have not the slightest clue who invited everyone." she said looking away some and zoning a bit.
