A ball, huh . . . ?  Seems like it's all anyone's taking about these days.  Guess people'll grab at whatever little bit of excitement they can get.

These sort of events aren't really the sort of thing I'd normally be interested in, but the rewards sound pretty nice.  I'd rather not go alone if I can help it, though -- Any takers?  So long as you're female, above the age of 18, and preferably human-esque, I'm not too picky at this point.  Most of you've probably made plans already.

 . . .

 . . . Uh.  Terra.  I-If you don't mind my asking.  And if no one else has asked you already.  Also if you're not busy.  And if it happens that you might possibly feel like it.  Also . . .

Huh.  Hang on, I had a speech or something along those lines memorized, but I seem to have forgotten it somewhere in my brain.  That doesn't really make sense.  Forgotten it somewhere.

That is.

Ah-hem.  Would you care to go to the ball with me?

((Klarth is not at all in his usual spirits for some unknown reason.  Feel free to notice.  I am aware that Terra has already made plans.  I think.))

I'd say it's not so much about the excitement so much as the rewards.

One fragment of memory and one item from home . . . It's strange. Have they ever advertised it like this before?

Not to my knowledge. But then I've only seen the one ball myself, and that was organized by Etna. First time I've seen a ball organized by the powers that be.

A ball organized by . . . Etna. I'm afraid to ask how it went.

Perhaps it may be an effort to raise our spirits. Have you noticed the apartment listings lately?

Rather well, actually. She may be a demon, but she runs a good business.

I try to make the trip to Ari Apartments once in a while. I haven't recently. I take it the recent availabilites in the school are echoed there?

More or less. Ten or twenty names seem to have fallen off in the last two weeks. I'd thought, at first, that perhaps some had found their own housing. Doesn't seem to be the case.

I expect I ought to be happy for them, but my sense of optimism appears to be taking a short vacation at present.

As long as I've been here, the population has remainined stable, if nothing else. People leave and are replaced. However, that's a large order to fill. I've never heard of people disappearing en masse, nor do I know if we should expect a sudden influx of new arrivals.

Interesting. Do you expect more disappearances or suspect foul play?

That was always the case, yes. It's a bit troubling, then, to see so many leaving at once. I don't truly expect anything; the island has proven itself to be quite unpredictable.

But . . . I admit, it almost appears as if the island is preparing to wind itself down.

Winding itself down. A curious way to look at it. To a smaller state of existence or to nothing itself?

I was thinking, perhaps, that it may be finished. With whatever it wanted to do . . .

But, of course, I'm being entirely irrational. There are still many of us left on this island.

Poor Klarth. ;A; Also [Filtered]

Oh, Klarth... I'm so sorry, I already told someone else I would go with them...

Ahh, it's fine, it's fine. Don't worry about it. I suppose this ought to serve as a sign of sorts.

Please enjoy yourself.

A sign?

You'll still attend, won't you?

Probably. Another young lady has responded to the open offer already.

I'd been thinking lately, actually . . . about relationships. Never thought of it before, but you know, it's perfectly possible that I may already be in a relationship back home. Married, even.

I'm happy to hear that!

...I hadn't thought of that. It's true, isn't it?

From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Yes. It's strange, though. I hadn't even thought anything of it until this whole ball business. More than even just friends awaiting us -- I expect I'm of the age to have started a family by this time.

It's a bit of a troubling thought.

From: [identity profile] allnaturalmagic.livejournal.com
Just because you're a bit older doesn't mean you have a family, though.

...There's no way of knowing, right now. And just because you go to a dance, it doesn't mean that you're being unfaithful to any woman you may or may not be with.

From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Of course, you're quite right. And I doubt very much that I would have found anyone willing to put up with me, heh. Still, the thought remains -- Who is waiting for us at home? Whom we have forgotten entirely . . . Not through any fault of our own, but.

Why would you say that? You're a wonderful man, Klarth! I'm sure there are many ladies that would be happy to marry you!

...I do worry about that, as well, even though there's nothing we can do about it.

I can assure you that my obsessive, eccentric, and at times bordering on offensive behavior is hardly a magnet for the fairer sex.

...Oh my.

You really are a fine man, Klarth.

From: [identity profile] shoukanjutsu.livejournal.com
Sorry about that. I don't have a 'skeptical' icon so that was the best I could do. Didn't mean to be too harsh, there . . .

You know, I really should just stop thinking about these things since I can't help them either way. Must as well just get back to my obsession over books and all.

No, you don't need to apologize. Just... don't be so ahrd on yourself!

You remind me of Erk, sometimes.

He doesn't seem too old... Looks quite fine, too...

Okay~! Misa-Misa will go with you!

[[ooc: i-if you want to, of course. |D;;]]

R-Really? I hadn't actually thought anyone would --

No, never mind. Alright, then, miss. Uhh. You are of age, right? My name is Klarth.

Date: 2009-07-06 11:01 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] the-second-kira.livejournal.com
Of course Misa-Misa is! I guess.

Amane Misa! But you can call me Misa-Misa~

You're sure you're not actually a 10 year old in the 'referring to yourself in the 3rd person' phase?

Yes, well. It's good to meet you, Miss . . . Misa-Misa. Miss Misa will do. I'll do what I can to make myself a suitable date on that night.
