A Bird With No Song [ Van & Edgeworth - Closed ]

Who: Vanyel  Ashkevron & Miles Edgeworth
What: Van is out in town, admiring some instruments, when there's a little interruption...
When: today
Where: in town
Warnings: none, PG

Vanyel had come down to town to escape the Castle, to just have a moment to himself. For once, Yfandes was not with him, she had chosen to stay out in the pastures, enjoying the nice day and the sweet grass. He did not blame here, and even if she was not there physically, he always had his link to her. He did have a companion though - his little Emolga, Ewryn. The creature was currently perched on his shoulder as he considered some instruments on sale.

Really, he should not be looking at these. They were a reminder of the thing he had lost when coming here - music. The thing he had wanted most in the world, gained through tragedy, and snatched away again. Paradisa could indeed be a cruel place. And yet, he could take his eyes away from the instruments set out, itching to touch, to pluck a melody from them. It would be so easy to reach out and touch... and yet he knew it was not. His hands would slip from them like trying to grab a greased pig and even if he got the strings, they would remain silent. Even his throat had been silence when it came to song. Not a note would spring forth, not now. It came out a horrid croak, like a frog being strangled. He had tried. No avail.

He sighed, reaching up and touching the tiny ball of fur on his shoulder, Ewryn cheeping sympathetically, sensing its trainer's melancholy as he continued to examine the instruments with just his eyes, not having the strength to reach out and try and touch only to be disappointed again.

From a distance, Edgeworth's own furry companion, Veritas, notes the utterly familiar presence. She had recognized Vanyel from afar given their brief encounter some whence in the past, but apart from that...

...Another pokemon!

She trotted towards Vanyel and Ewryn, attempting to gain his attention with a mirthful bark.

Veritas always loved these little exchanges with other pokemon - creatures she could effectively communicate with. She has never seen one of his kind, before, but was instantly able to tell that the creature was from her world. She craned her neck in an attempt to give Ewryn a friendly lick, though, such was anatomically impossible being that he was covering her eyes. She yips a greeting to them both, wagging her tail as she patiently allows the Emolga to clamber upon her face.

She badly wanted to respond coherently. She really did. She responds in what may appear to be a bark to Vanyel, but what should clearly come across as something akin to, 'No, he is in there! He's in there!' to the Emolga, pointing her snout in the general direction of the store's display case.

Veritas blinked. Whoa - it can fly. That was unexpected, to say the least. Despite seeing him defy his master's command, she didn't intervene. Instead, she sat and watched expectantly, wondering what the little fellow was up to.

Edgeworth was mildly startled by the suddenness of the voice coming from behind him. He turned around, and paused for a few seconds as he faced Vanyel, attempting to recall just where and when he had seen this face before...

"Ah, hello there. If you are referring to the growlithe outside, then yes." He paused again before asking, "...She is not bothering you in any way, is she?"
cantacquityou: (???)

[personal profile] cantacquityou 2012-04-27 07:15 pm (UTC)(link)
He blinked at the Emolga curling into the man's hair. It was adorable.

"Ah yes, indeed. I beseech that you pardon my impertinence. I am Edgeworth," he had gotten accustomed to introducing himself by his last name to strangers, mostly out of the desire to be associated with his father, "...your...'Companion'?" Was he referring to the horse? Because he didn't recall anyone else at that time...

His preferred method of greeting was always to minimize physical contact with a bow, but he took his hand and engaged him in a firm handshake, nonetheless.

"That's a rather nice name, Mr. Ashkevron. It sounds... distinguished."

He momentarily looked off to the side.

"Then you are rather distinguished in your own right, I see."
cantacquityou: (Impatience)

"'Valdemar.' I can't say I've heard of the place," He crossed his arms, "Please excuse my ignorance, but where might that be?"
cantacquityou: (Do you want my Pere Noel?)

[personal profile] cantacquityou 2012-04-27 11:39 pm (UTC)(link)
"That's where I would be from. Come to think of it, I'd say you're fairly lucky to have been accompanied by your, 'Companion.' I doubt the castle grants many more that luxury."
cantacquityou: (Time to SRS)

[personal profile] cantacquityou 2012-04-27 11:53 pm (UTC)(link)
"Not at all, unfortunately. A 'part of' you, you say?"

"Ah."

He simply wasn't sure how to respond to that, being a non-magical being himself who was, until recently, very averse to talk of 'supernatural drivel.'

"...Of course. I suppose many strong bonds could be considered as such - 'magical'"

By then, the shopkeeper emerged from the rear of the shop.

"I'm sorry, Mr. Edgeworth. I am afraid we don't carry the model you're looking for. We can place a special order if you'd like."

Edgeworth rubbed his chin.

"Hm. No, it's quite alright."

He then returned his attention to Vanyel.

"I beg your pardon. In any case, Mr. Ashkevron, what brings you here, today?"
cantacquityou: (Dear God no)

[personal profile] cantacquityou 2012-04-29 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
"...Why is that?" Edgeworth already had a pretty good idea of why, but as he'd always say, one could never assume.
