PostSubject: What a Dark Place   Fri Sep 23, 2011 9:50 pm

Once again, it was a cloudy day. In the park, the teeter-totters bounced eerily on their own. Bodies lounged around as though they had just been tossed there, faces frozen with terror.

On the swings sat a teenage girl with jet-black hair tied up in a ponytail. She kept her toes on the ground, and pushed back and forth, making the swing move slightly.

Suddenly, an explosion sounded. Noah burst out, cheeks smeared with ash, as a dozen or so Frighteneers launched fire at him. "H-hey!" he yelled, running in the opposite direction at Marie. "I said I was sorry!"
"Suuu!" cried one, lauching a fireball. It missed his shoe by an inch, leaving a burn mark on the path.

Marie jumped up, scooping her hammer from the ground. She threw it, hitting and dissipating a couple of shadows at once.
"What the hell, Noah?!" she yelled.

"It wasn't me!" he insisted in a yell, running up the slide. "I was framed!"

"For what?!" she demanded, backing up to the edge of the jungle gym. With her back against the cold bars, Marie-Claire cringed. Her hammer was stuck in the ground...behind the Frighteneers.

"For upsetting killers." Noah yelled. "They had it coming!"
He then halted, and spun around, swinging with full force his morning star. "Hyaaaaaaaaaaaaah!"
It struck all but two, killing them. The other two ran away frightened.

Marie froze up, gripping some bars behind her so tightly, her knuckles were white. She stared at Noah incredulously.
"That was...amazing," she uttered.

Noah blinked at her, leaning on his morningstar with a surprised look, but it turned cocky. "Oh, it was nothing..." he said in a deep voice, but suddenly, the morningstar toppled from under him. He fell to the ground with an 'Oof'.

The dark-haired girl couldn't help but giggle. She stepped away from the jungle gym, walking over to where her hammer was. Marie yanked it from the ground, then moved back to Noah.
"Be more careful, Hot Shot," she teased.

Noah moaned, getting back up. "So. What are you doing out here?"

Marie looked around, biting her lip.
"Umm, just..thinking," she answered softly, just as she had spoken the first day she had shown up.

Hope had been strolling around the streets studying her blade carefully for any chips or dull points when she heard the voices of Noah and Marie. She quickly looked up to see them hanging out near the swing set. "Hey guys," she called out before jogging up to them. "What's going on?"

Hearing another voice, Marie grimaced.
"I'm not saying anything personal with another person around," she breathed so only Noah would hear. Then, louder: "Hello, Hope."

Noah blinked, and leaned back, frealising he was sideways on the slide. He fell backwards again, murmuring. "Hi Hope..."

As kindly as she could, Marie-Claire said to Hope, "I'm glad to see you and all, but we were kind of in the middle of a conversation." The girl cringed; she hated being rude to people. "We can talk later, I promise. But, umm, Noah and I are just gonna go this way to talk." With that, the dark-haired teen grabbed Noah's hand, hauling him away from the playground and off into the patterned grove of trees that led the way to the baseball diamond.

With surprise, he was pulled away. "By Hope!" he called, being dragged.

Marie-Claire only stopped after they had gone past a few trees before letting go of Noah, setting down her hammer, and leaning against a tree. She ran a hand through her long hair.
"I hate doing that to people," she whispered. "Hate, hate, hate it."

Noah leaned against a tree. "Then why did you?" murmured Noah.

"..Because I don't always trust everybody with secrets," she answered slowly. Looking down at her feet, Marie shook her head. "I don't know why I'm trusting you, but you're the only person I know who will listen long enough. I mean, not to say I don't trust the other people, but there are some things better left unsaid, right?"

Noah didn't follow it at all. "Yeah..." he only said with a slow nod.

Marie slid to a sitting position with her back against the tree.
"I was thinking about before the second apocalypse," she said. "When everything was normal, and we figured nothing bad would happen ever again." She glanced around, counting at least three bodies alone.

"Yeah." Noah agreed. "Dad told me the shadows were destroyed."

Marie nodded.
"We were just beginning to rebuild the world. If they were destroyed, then why are we in this mess?" she asked nobody in particular.

"Maybe there were survivors that slowly rebuilt the army secretly" murmured Noah. "I honestly have no idea."
