"What's with you and walking away from people?" Ally asked, starting to follow the boy.
"I just mind my own business," Rai muttered.
"Look, I've been on my own for a long time. Why don't we try to work together since we both seem to be running away from the war and everyhting." Ally said stepping in front of the boy. "I'm Ally."
Rai stood there for what seemed like an eternity. He was deciding whether he would travel with this girl named Ally. "My name's Rai... But that still doesn't mean that I will travel with you." Rai was persistent at keeping alone. He was a lone wolf. But still, a small part of him longed to be with another living person who he didn't have to kill. Someone who understood him and with whom he would get along with. Rai did not like to share his feelings nor think about them at all, for eachtime he did, a hollow ache appeared and it grew bigger.
"I'm of no threat to you, you said it yourself. Plus, if it wasn't for you, I may be dead, and I saved your life. That has to count for something." Ally said placing a hand on his shoulder.
Rai stumbled a bit, he was too far into his locked up memories. "Don't touch me," he moved away. There was a long period of silence. Finally his heart convinced his mind to say, "fine... We can travel together."
"Where are you trying to go anyway?" Ally said wishing she knew of a place she could go and forever call 'home'.
Rai smiled, "I dunno."
"ok, better question. What are you running from?" Ally asked, curious about Rai.
Rai didn't anwser. "I can't remember." Was all he said after a while.
"Well, I'm running from my father. This war is stupid and he expects me to take his place when I am old enough. Ugh! It's terrible." Ally said, just blabbing away, not realizing what she was saying.
Rai turned in interest, "your father? Take his place?"
"Oh, crap... Umm.. Yea.. My father is.... I guess you would say he is in controle of the whole entire Rogue Army..." Ally said backing up a little, scared of what Rai may do.
((I don't know what's going on... I've tried to post like three times and it's not working!))
"He is Comander of the whole Rogue Society and he expects me to rule by his side and take his place one day. That's why i left."
((Yeah, sometimes Teenink does this.))
"Oh" Was all Rai said. "Well, we should hurry up before reinforcements come."
"Kay. I'm following you for now." Ally said, waving her hand in the directing Rai had been walking.
"Whatever." Rai said in response; he wandered off in the direction where he was originially going.
