((bump........I KNOW you're on here......hehehehe. Ignore my crazy, it has a will of it's own.))
((i didn't see you had responded lol))
"I think that dreams allow you to do whatever you want to be able to do in your mind. I believe that you are only limited in your dreams by the doubts you have in your mind, and in reality," Seth replied. "Dreams don't try to box you in, your mind does that. It's what makes us like humans."
"My point precisely," Vidia murmured. She touched the walls of the Nothing and made them red. "Is this wall really red? Am I really creating anything at all? This is a lie. When we wake up there will be no red wall." She sighed.
"There's no red wall to begin with," Seth muttered. "I wonder if humans dream this way?"
"I don't think so. They don't know they're dreaming, and if they do they can't speak about it. And they cannot share dreams." Vidia tilted her head. "I'm going to wake up now. It's morning." She vanished.
Seth nodded before waking up himself and stretching out of the odd position he was in while he slept. He rolled his head to the side and stretched out his arms before just kind of flopped back on the ground.
Vidia sat up in bed fluidly and then headed downstairs after stealing a new outfit from the person's closet. Whoever had lived here didn't need it now. She ran down the stairs and slammed the door of the house shut, knowing Seth would follow. She walked down the street towards her ultimate destination.
Seth picked himself up off the floor at the sound of the door slamming and raced after her, leaving the door opened when he left, not genuinly caring. He didn't speak when he caught up to her, just walked along side her.
Vidia stared straight forward. She suddenly wished she could be the company he probably wanted--someone who gave a **** and was sympathetic, warm, caring....someone a little more human. But the fact was, she was a girl with a mission and nothing more. The sooner Seth could accept that, the better. She remained silent, and broke into a flat sprint that she intended to maintain the whole day.
Seth let out a slightly annoyed huff before he sprinted after her, keeping her pace. He wondered if she would always be like this, if she would always stay as unfeeling as she was, as blank... just... empty.
She stopped suddenly and rounded on Seth. "I'm not a stone-cold b*tch," she said fiercely.
Seth almost ran into her when she suddenly stopped. He was a bit confused by the sudden outburst, and raised his hands in defense. "I didn't say you were."
"But I know you were thinking it," Vidia said. "I don't have to be a mind reader for that. Well, you think you know me, but you're just like everyone else. Maybe it's a lack on your character that you can't see what's underneath....the stone-cold b*tch." Vidia hid her face with her long, pale hair. She hadn't meant to say so much. But he wouldn't get it, anyway, so it hardly mattered.
"It's not my fault you don't let yourself feel," Seth replied quietly. "You have a heart, you're just using your robotic side more than your human side, that's why you don't feel, and that's why you apparently get called a 'stone cold b*tch'." Seth looked at the ground.
Vidia walked faster. She shouldn't have said anything. But now she found the words come tumbling out. "There's a glitch in my brain. The robotic is slowly taking over. I lied about the meditating. That was designed soley for me--so I would let my humanity grow as well." She still hadn't looked at Seth in a long time. "And nobody's called me that. It's what I call myself."
"Is there any way to fix that? Or not, are you just stuck like that?" Seth asked carefully.
"I'm stuck." She said it flatly, with no emotion. "Forget I said anything." The fact that he had to ask showed how much faith he had in her. They'd just met and he'd already written her off. Well, she could play the Ice Queen. She'd been playing it ever since her Creator died.
"Alright," Seth just walked with her then, not really running, but still walking quickly.
By mid-morning they'd reached an impasse. Meaning there was a huge wall keeping them from going into the next town. "Welcome to the Great Divide," Vidia said. "We'll have to find a way around."
"They actually call it the Great Divide?" Seth asked with a slight laugh. "Could we climb it somehow? or do we have to go around?"
