mogget_cat: (Death)
Yrael comes down the outside bypass stairs, not wanting to have to take the time to pass through the bar. In there, he might be stopped or questioned before getting to retreat to the relative quiet of the forest at night.

He strides out into the trees, his bare feet silent in the grass and moist soil, on rock and tree root.

He wants... he doesn't know what he wants.

And Ruin is there in the trees, Bane absent, and a faint smile is on his lips as he steps into Yrael's path.

"I told you, Yrael. You don't matter anymore."

The warnings in that voice, the fear it tries to evoke in him, is disregarded without pause. Ruin has faced down more powerful, more frightening beings than Yrael, and his own immortality gives him a certain feeling of security.

And so he steps to the side, again placing him in Yrael's path.

"I think, Yrael, that it is you who doesn't want to talk because you'll have to verbally admit what both of us know." His eyes flash, like liquid silver in the moonlight. "He's up there, snorting coke off the carpet while Nathaniel tries not to weep at the hopelessness of it all. Your words... touched nothing."

Ruin doesn't hesitate.

"I'm well aware of the consequences, Yrael."

He was a servant of the sentients, no matter what the sentient needed. Ruin doesn't back down.

He doesn't follow Yrael, but he calls after him.

"He'd rather die than let any of you help him." Ruin looks over his shoulder. "Then again, you never could save yourself, so why should you have thought you could save him, Mogget?"

ten_of_swords: (Ciaran - Hunting You)
The Bright Shiner wasn't as quiet as perhaps he hoped, and Ruin is already in motion when the claws make contact. Ruin throws himself forward, muting some of the impact. When he hits the ground on all fours, he rolls to his left. Then, counting on Yrael to follow the instinct to remain upright and move right, Ruin drives his right elbow back and up and is rewarded with the crunch of bone against face.

Ruin howls in pain and fury. He hooks his wounded arm around Yrael's neck, continuing his roll to peel the not'cat off his back. The stray rocks on the ground dig into the claw marks on his back, but he just grimaces and keeps rolling until he's back on his feet and a couple of yards away.

"Claws and teeth. I must have really hit a nerve. The little puppy must mean a lot to you."

Ruin laughs, the sound rough with pain, but he exerts enough of his own power to heal the worst of it.

"It's about time you saw the truth of the situation. I knew you weren't so stupid as to believe it when it's right in your damn face."

"Not yet."

He remains alert though, muscles coiled.

"But well on his way."

"He can only save himself, Yrael," he says with a wince. "It's his choice. It's... always been his choice."

Date: 2009-05-30 05:17 am (UTC)From: [personal profile] ten_of_swords

Ruin straightens up, though he groans briefly, and shakes his head.

"For his sake, I hope you're right."

"I know."

And he does.

Ruin leans against a tree.

"Your sleep, though, is going to be as restless as it has been for a while yet."

Since Yrael asked...

"JD's Bar-B-Q has great ribs if you're in the mood for pork."

"Woodstock, Georgia. Great place."

He laughs, the sound tired and worn.

"It's my job, Yrael. Nothing more. It will end, one way or another, soon enough."

Date: 2009-05-30 05:45 am (UTC)From: [personal profile] ten_of_swords

Ruin smirks, shoving off from the tree.

"If I look at Jason the wrong way, it's due to a choice he's made that's invited me to do so."

He sighs. Ruin doesn't want pity. Understanding is all he's ever wanted. He was a part of a greater whole, just an unpleasant part.

"It's what I do. I can do nothing but be what I am."

Trudging through the forest, away from Yrael, Ruin tries to focus his energies, repair what damage Yrael's teeth and claws had done.
