day 5

[The fifth day doesn't dawn at all. In fact, the sky simply isn't there anymore; the only thing visible if you look up is pure black nothing. Most of the carnival itself is no longer visible, having been blanketed by thick white fog; any attempt to enter said fog will result in your body rapidly disintegrating. The street at least still seems to be intact, but with no way out and the fog slowly creeping in, who knows how long that'll last?

Luckily, it seems like the cavalry has finally arrived.]

(OOC: This marks the last day of the event! Anyone who has won a prize from Mayfield's carnival will be able to access both Mayfield and this area through the funhouse, and will be able to take one person with them on each trip they make. If your character is not rescued by the end of the day, they will be disintegrated by the fog and will wake up the next morning in Mayfield with the standard revival effects. You are free to comment in this post regardless of whether your character signed up for the event.)

[he shakes his head, slowly.]

At first he did. At first...things were pretty good. Not perfect, but good enough. He was...happy. He wasn't wanted anywhere else, especially not in the towns outside of the for- [he stops short again. please don't mess this up, please.] - kingdom. No one needed a knight, especially not him. It didn't matter, though; I mean, it did at first, but he started to accept things for what they were - how you could give something your best shot and that would be enough.

[he pauses, blinking abruptly for about a minute like he's just woken up, stirring himself from a deep sleep. or a dream.]

The king taught him that. He... Whether he wanted to admit it or not, he liked him. He could be grumpy and irritating and, and a big fat mooch with a savior complex, but the boy cared. They were friends.

That was around the same time everything changed for good.

[They were friends. She remembered, still... Telling him that if they'd left, maybe they hadn't been friends. But if they had cared; had truly liked him -- assuming this story was about him; she didn't want to jump to conclusions... But if they had...

Gosh, what must he have done?]

What changed?

[There's trepidation in her voice. She doesn't feel like he's capable of having done anything that would change her opinion of him, but... What if? She doesn't want to think less of him. She really doesn't.]

He did.

[it shouldn't hurt to say that aloud as much as it does right now. granted, he's thought about - boy, has he EVER - but words sound different in your head. when you give anything a voice, it has power. words can become weapons.]

Somehow, his...abilities caught on, and whereas people didn't care before, they definitely took notice now. And at first, it was great! He was needed and...and popular, and best of all, his family seemed to finally take his dreams seriously. Everything was great. order to keep things like that, he had to break his promise. Looking back on it, there was probably another way. I'm sure there was. At the time, he didn't think so and he - [his breath hitches again and he tries to cover it up by coughing.] - he wanted things to stay the way they were, so badly. And it was like no one cared about that but him.

So he broke it by claiming their treasure as his own. And he became a dragon.

...I see.

[It's... She's not sure what to make of it. She wants to know this, but part of her doesn't. Ignorance really is bliss.

But she's ultimately glad she knows now. Or... Has a vague, symbolic idea of things. This is important. So she knows, and... So he can grow. She can help. She certainly wants to.]

[if not for the annunciation, you'd be forgiven for mistaking the word for a sigh. it's certainly shaky enough to pass for one; quiet, too. should he even go on? it's not like she shouldn't be able to piece things together on her own at this point.]

He destroyed everything. By the time he was done, they didn't even have a home anymore, and the king -

[The Lorax -]

- He tried. He tried so hard to get the boy to see what he was doing, because he cared. Even when nothing worked, he still wouldn't give up; not on the kingdom, and definitely not on the boy.

...But the boy didn't listen. And, eventually, the king stopped trying.

That's why they left... They didn't have a choice.

[Rapunzel's sigh is a true one. She's... Well. He'd warned her well enough, hadn't he? And she knew he was... Hard-headed. Proud. But she's still disappointed.

In him, yes. But also for him. Because now he's stuck here, and he can't do anything to fix what he's done. So there's pity-- No, sympathy. And the fact that... Despite it, her feelings aren't any different. She squeezes his hand.]

I don't know what to say.
