D13LA, A Quiet Contemplation (Cut Scene, Closed)

Post by Seppun Dawei » Sun Jun 07, 2020 10:58 pm

Having returned from some foraging and having set his tent back up--Have to keep things nice for Kaze-kun, he thinks--Dawei hears the rain begin.

No duties at present, he thinks, and he is glad. Standing watch in the rain is not a pleasant thing, as he's found more than once. Doing so under the kind of cover that rewards his watching is even worse.

It is an opportunity to work on his art, then, and one of which he avails himself. Taking out the figure of a man that had begun to take shape under his hands and knife in previous days--And, oh, what a day that was!--he turns it over in his hands, feeling the grain, smoothing away splinters. And he takes out his knife again, thinking that he will call more of the figure out of the wood.

As he begins the work, though, the point of his blade finds some weakness in the wood, and the figure snaps in half, raggedly. The edges of the break are jagged, looking like nothing so much as the dangling of viscera from gutted game, and a splinter from it buries itself into Dawei's thumb under the nail.

"Fuck!" shouts the normally quiet man, and he flings the broken wood out of his tent-flap before bringing his thumb to his mouth and pulling the splinter with his teeth. He spits it out contemptuously, focuses on holding his thumb tightly to stop the bleeding.

In the rain outside, the ruined figure begins to smoke and pit.
