Robyn laughed shakily. "It's nothing... Really. We were talking about old times." She shifted uncomfortably. "So... You're looking for your family members, huh?" She edged away from Rylan towards Emery. His pink aura had grown a little—it enticed her to no end.
Emery wasn't stupid. He glared at his brother vaguely aware of Robyn moving closer to him. "Old times, huh? Makes perfect sense since you never liked Robyn." Emery said snippily.
"Yeah we are. Well I am. I've been looking for them since I fell. I won't be able to sense any of them until we're together again. Like now since I've found Rylan I can sense him." Emery explained to her. It made his chest ache to look at Robyn because he remembered the past and what they'd shared. His hands iched to touch her and see if he could feel her since they were both fallen. He couldn't physically feel others unless he took over a human's body which he didn't want to ever do.
Robyn unconsciously brushed the back of Emery's hand. She felt it the instant their hands met--her aura became dark gold and her feathers dropped to the ground, creating a circle around her. Robyn met Emery's eyes and gasped. "What just happened?"
Emery's head sharply turned when he felt Robyn's hand. He hadn't been able to feel anything in so long. "I can... I can feel you." he whispered forgetting all about Rylan. He moved his hand so he could grasp hers and lace their fingers together. "That means... You've fallen." Emery whispered still staring at their joined hands in awe. He gently stroked the back of her knuckles with his thumb. Emery's pink aura started glowing brightly.
It was unnatural, Robyn's reaction. She didn't feel horror at the fact that she'd fallen.... she just felt an overwhelming love for Emery... her Imiri. She were together at last. She lay her head on his warm chest. "How can I feel you, too?" she asked him breathily. "I just fell--I should feel nothing at all."
A gagging noise came from Rylan, who looked vaguely amused.
Emery wanted to kiss Robyn with all the pent up passion over the long time they'd been apart but forced himself not to. "I guess fallen angels can feel each other." He whispered and wrapped his arms around her. He wasn't really sure about all the fallen angel rules because he didn't have any company from other fallen angels until tonight. He'd been with mortals for so long he had gotten used to not feeling anything.
Robyn looked up at Emery. He was so tall. His arm were around her, which brought back so many memories. "I've missed you," she whispered, and brought her forehead to his. Their noses brushed together and she smiled.
He didn't understand why Robyn was so... Happy. "Robyn... You're fallen. You swore that would never happen. What are you doing?" he whispered as their foreheads came together and their noses brushed. "I missed you too." he said after a few seconds. Emery had always loved how small Robyn was. His hair had grown out a lot since he'd fallen. It used to be cut quite short but now the brown locks fell into his eyes making him chuckle.
Robyn laughed. She felt free. "I never felt happy before. I kept trying to run from... this. From you. Now I know how it should have been all along." To demonstrate, she moved her hand to his cheek and turned her head to rest her lips by his. For a moment her eyes flickered to where Rylan was standing, but he was gone. Instead of kissing Emery like she wanted to, she sighed and straightened. "Your brother's gone. You want to follow him? I know you just got him back."
She hoped he wouldn't leave forever. For once she could understand what it would be like to be betrayed--abandoned. Would he forgive her enough to start over?
Emery could feel Roby's breath, that sweet, sweet breath he'd missed. Somehow this was different though. It felt different, better in a way, than when they weren't fallen. "I..." he paused not even looking over to where Rylan had disappeared. "No. I know he won't go far. He wants to become a real angel again too. A guardian. And for that to happen we've got to find the others." Emery cupped her cheek stroking it with the pad of his thumb gently. "So soft." he whispered. "So beautiful."
Robyn blushed. "Emery...." She brushed his lips with hers. Suddenly the skies opened up and a torrent of rain pounded down on them from above. Robyn half-shrieked-half-laughed and stepped a little ways a way from Emery. "We always have the worst luck, huh?"
Emery felt her soft lips against his and smiled before the rain began. "I guess." He sighed and adjusted his bag on his shoulder. "Come on. We've got to get out of this rain before my drum fu,cks up." he said and grabbed her hand pulling her down the street. It was late at night so he wasn't sure what would be open. It was too far to get to his place and he couldn't remember where he parked. "Car... Car..." he mumbled to himself as the rain started soaking them.
Robyn let herself be pulled along. The streets were dark except for a bar, lit up from within. "Let's go in there," Robyn said. "Unless you see your car anywhere....?" She was thinking that maybe Rylan stole it. It seemed like the sort of vindictive thing he'd do, especially if he was jealous of her and Emery's reunion.
Emery shook his head. "No it's down the other way. Come in here until the rain lightens up." he said and pulled Robyn into the safety of the bar. Not many people were there and the people that were there were getting ready to leave. There was a couple pool tables and jukebox in the corner.
The bar was lit dimly, with soft lights pulsing to the beat of the music. Emery pulled her past the pool tables, to the jukebox. "I love this song," Robyn said. "Do you remember it from the eighties? The humans actually got music right for a time." She smiled, humming to Jessie's Girl. Pulling Emery over to one of the abandoned pool tables, she tossed him a cue. He caught it defly. "Wanna play?" she said teasingly. "I've always been able to kick your a.ss."
Emery chuckled and caught the cue. So many memories were flooding his mind. "You always did love this song." he grinned a little crookedly. "We'll see about that." Emery got the table set up and then looked up at Robyn. "You break miss." he winked at her like he used to when they would flirt. He fixed the damp slouch hat he had on his head before just leaning back against the wall. Emery never had to try to act or look cool and attractive. He just naturally was.
Robyn moved around the table to break. The balls scattered and one of them went in straight. She grinned. "Still have it." She sunk another solid but missed the next. "Beat that, oh soul-poet." She'd missed flirting with Imiri.
Robyn walked around the table to break. She sunk a solid, but missed the next one. Robyn grinned, embarrassed. "I've lost my touch."
((Can you add more? I really detest oneliners. It seems we started off swell but now it's just dying out. :/))
((Lol, sorry. My original post got eaten by the filter and I just gave up XD)).
Emery just chuckled. "I don't know why you're smirking," she said wryly. "Maybe I'm just hustling you, ya never know." She watched him sink three balls in a row, although it wasn't the cue she was watching—it was his strong, lean muscles. She came up behind him and wrapped her arms around his hard stomach. "I think the rain has stopped." She but her lip. "So... You can go home, if you want." Dam.n, he looked so cute in his hat. His long, dark hair flopped over his eyes as he stood there examining her. She waited anxiously for his response. Why was she so insecure around him?
