It's a little while after they've left the Sanctuary. This time, they're in Isis's room, rather than Eiko's.

Isis's room is fairly large by itself, and the bed is a twin bed with a nice, squashy mattress. Said squashy mattress is why she chose this room, to be honest.

There is a night-table, and some sort of bizarre looking lamp that apparently came with the room. This is where her spellbook is currently resting. The backpack she arrived with hangs on the back of a chair, and is open.

In front of said chair, is a desk, with a laptop on it (Said laptop is currently closed and off).

Isis moves to sit on the bed. She wanted to talk with Eiko about this. Because, well.

This Isis isn't terribly experienced in the realm of relationships, so, hopefully, talking will help!

At least in the idea of where to go from here

Eiko looks equally disconcerted and uncertain at this point.

"Um," is about her level of conversation.

"Um. So." Isis says, quietly, shifting to sit cross legged, and looking like she wouldn't mind being joined. Now that she's alone with Eiko it's easier to actually press on with this (Or the extent of her conversation would be most amusingly similar).

She fidgets a little a moment, "..My luck with relationships, as I. um, told you before, hasn't exactly been... much." A glance, meeting her eyes, "So. I'm, er. A little clueless about what's next." Ah, inexperience.

"I.. have vague ideas, but.." littlefidget, "..We're treading into what's uncharted territory for me."

"And I have had... uh... I think the word is 'fling', really... once with a female friend, and my disasterous attempt at seizing a man's heart by giving my virginity to him. The first was more pleasant by far..." She trails off, with a look on her face of 'oh, yeah, I just said way too much'.

She blushes, but she nods. No bad comments about it or anything, just noting that Eiko's more experienced. Even if part of her is going a little '..uh.' at the whole sleeping with a guy thing.

It's strange to actually notice that, when she thinks about it. She likes boys! She really does.

Just.. not in that way. Her mind just can't wrap around the concept in any feasible way. A boy did ask her out once, and she was about to say 'sure', because that was still in the stage of the unknown. Unfortunately, fate--and her still developing magic skills--intervened, in what appeared to be a burst of strange static electricity to everyone else, the boy got zapped. And for three days, his hair stuck out.

"...If I may ask." She asks, quietly and curious, "What prompted you to kiss me, anyway?" About a half-beat, "Not that I'm. um. Complaining, mind. But. Er. I'm curious."

Because now, she's tempted to return the gesture. She hasn't, yet. But if Eiko's in range of leaning, it's extraordinarily tempting.

"I... I cannot explain. It... I do not know. I just... wanted to. I do not know what it was. So much in my head that... that does not make sense at all to me." She sighs, hanging her head. "I sometimes think that the madness is not that I am in this strange place, but that there are things in me I do not understand. You are pretty, and I felt that I should kiss you, but I cannot... cannot quite put the words together as to why. It just... was something I wanted to do."

Isis blushes a little at being complimented. She has been before, but something about Eiko saying it just has that effect on her. Probably because she knows it's honest. As Eiko wouldn't lie about that.

"Something you wanted to do." Isis repeats, quietly. Mulling this over for a moment, before deciding something.

Perhaps in the boldest action she's done, like ever. She shows an incredibly rare moment of a spurr of the moment choice. She leans forward, and barring any signs of rejection, she kisses Eiko softly on the lips.

It's one of those soft kisses that doesn't extend past this, but they remain in contact for what might seem like a short eternity. When in reality, it's only a few minutes, when Isis pulls back. She's sitting closer, but blushing quite deeply.

It is important to note that every time Eiko been kissed by another girl, she's been ...under the influence of something. Spiked punch, weird smoke, what have you.

Therefore, this is really the first time she's been stone cold sober and another girl has kissed her, and as a result, once Isis finishes, she just sort of stays there, eyes doing that 'looking into infinity' thing.

Isis is still blushing, to note. She looks at Eiko while she just kind-of stares off, a little nervous. She brushes her hair back slightly.

So, essentially, this is pretty much Eiko's first real kiss from another girl. It's also Isis's, at least, in the first one she's initiated in this sort of situation.

"..." Give her a minute, though, that took a lot of courage for her to do. "..Was it that good?" She asks, quietly. She's nervous, and she still fears rejection, even after going this far.

Which is, in Isis's book, pretty far. It is, as she stated previously, completely uncharted territory for her.

Eiko's mind has not quite gotten itself refocused again for speaking.

Through the wall, the alarm clock in her room clicks and becomes audible:

and I will be the one to hold you down, kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
and after I wipe away the tears
just close your eyes, dear...


And then Eiko moves quite possibly faster than Isis can really react to - years of martial arts training - and takes her close, kissing her back firmly this time.

As it is, she was distracted by the alarm clock piping up through the wall (which merited in a confused look on its own). So the kiss from Eiko? The biggest, and probably best, surprise ever.

She makes a surprised noise and just surrenders herself. Relaxing and kissing back. She's not the best at kissing, but she's got more of an idea of what to do that one might initially guess. There's no tongue or deepening of the kiss, yet.

Isis, we do note, is blushing quite, quite deeply, and clinging to the thin, athletic girl, though. Because she doesn't want the closeness to end, however fleeting it may be.

Nor from Eiko - she's not quite comfortable with that.

The clinging is what does it - Eiko breaks away, almost with a shiver, and almost seems to pull away.

"I... am sorry..." She shivers. "I am not used to..." She trails off.

"It. um." Blushing, massive blushing. And the chills. She's trying to get words out past everything that is, to her, so new to process at once.

"It's. um. Alright." She doesn't stop sitting closely, unless Eiko moves away. "I.. just wanted to, after what you said."

She continues, "..I liked that, though." Her voice is quiet and soft, laced with a little nervousness, although she doesn't hesitate to say that.

She's still quite red, and luckily for her, the shirt she's wearing doesn't show much past her collarbone, because she's blushing past that pretty well.

"I... I keep feeling... as if I will be suddenly punished. When... my mother... found me once... with myself... I was... punished harshly."

Her hands are pulled into fists so tight the knuckles are a pure white.

"In the back of my mind I an waiting for the punishment."

Date: 2007-12-04 10:52 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] oppositionwalks.livejournal.com
That makes her blush a little worse, because it doesn't take a genius to realize what Eiko's alluding to in reference to 'with herself'.

Isis reaches out to touch Eiko's shoulder gently, "This.. isn't something one should be punished for." She says, quietly. The hand reaches to touch Eiko's cheek softly, "It's.. ..I don't know what to call it, but it's not something to be punished over."

"I just... start to feel pleasant and then... fear..."

She tries not to shiver.

"I am sorry for... all of this."

From: [identity profile] oppositionwalks.livejournal.com
The blush is fading mostly, "It's alright." Isis smiles softly. She thinks. "Um. We can take it slow. Since we're both.. new at this." She does scoot even closer. Her leg's in contact with Eiko's.

"..But. I like you. A lot, in the short time that I've known you, you've seemed to be so strong." A glance at her, "And.." Isis blushes again, "Um..Like I said the other night, I find you pretty."

She fidgets with her sleeve. ".. I'm. um. Not normally bold enough to admit that." She admits, quietly and softly. "But you made me want to say it, when you kissed me."

Date: 2007-12-05 02:18 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] blenderteen.livejournal.com
Eiko blushes again. "Then I suppose we have similar feelings..." Then she glances. "What now?"

Date: 2007-12-05 02:51 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] oppositionwalks.livejournal.com
"I'm.. not sure. Like I said earlier, this is... new to me." Another glance at Eiko.

Man, why is it so tempting to kiss her so much? She resists, for now. "Um. We could talk about things, I guess, and figure out where to go from there." She brushes her hair out of her face.

"Have you found a world you want to live on, yet?"

Date: 2007-12-05 03:00 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] blenderteen.livejournal.com
She nods. "As for me..."

"I have not found anything yet, really. Perhaps my destiny lies in the Nexus..." She pauses, getting a haunted look. "Or nowhere."

Date: 2007-12-05 03:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] oppositionwalks.livejournal.com
Isis just looks at her, "I'd hope it's the Nexus, to be utterly honest." She shifts her leg against Eiko's, to remind her of that presence.

"I've..." A glance at the laptop, "Been in contact with home. My father thought I was at my Aunt's, but hasn't heard from her either." A sigh, "And he knows less than I do, so he's not sure why I was redirected."

Note that she happens to skip over the part of the Nexus. She didn't explain that. She has no idea HOW.

"I still do not know why I am here. I never quite fit in anywhere. I was different - no one else I knew could do what I can do. Some people tried very hard to make me feel like I was at least wanted... but this is the first place I almost feel as if I could find someplace I fit in." She slips a hand over, so it touches, ever so gently, Isis's. "If they are true that this is a place of infinite possibilities, then for one such as I, there may even be a place I can be, despite tattered honor and ...such a different way of viewing the world."

Isis has chills at that gentle touch to her hand. Her hands are the primary focus and director of most--if not nearly all--the spells she knows. A small sound escapes her at those chills, but it's not a bad one.

"I can say much the same about myself." Isis replies, quietly, "I was already shy to begin with, and the magic manifesting only made it worse. Here it's..." She shifts so her hand's touching Eiko's more. "It's.. actually known, and common. Telling people about it has been so utterly strange." Not a bad thing in her mind, just...

Surreal as all hell.

"As I told you... I thought my life was set and complete, and then it all collapsed. I had thought about trying to find a place that was... more like what I knew. But I read more about Japan in the time that my parents tried to emulate, and I would be less than nothing there, with no clan or protector. Here, at least, I do not have people trying outright to kill me... or worse." She chews her lip a little.

"I do not know what skills I could offer, other than my physical ones." And then she blushes. "I... I did not mean... th-that I would... uh..."

Oh boy.

Date: 2007-12-05 08:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] oppositionwalks.livejournal.com
Isis nods at the first, and shifts a bit closer as well, her body subtly more outright in contact with Eiko's.

Isis blushes a little too, mainly because her mind went in that direction, "It's.. not about skills to offer, I think." She says, softly, "It's.. um. More about, being together, enjoying that." 'That' can have multiple meanings, here: Both enjoying their time together, among other things. Especially considering the direction Isis's mind just went. "And. um. Doing things together, since we enjoy the time together and all."

She nods, quietly. "But I will need to support myself somehow. I cannot just live off the charity of the Sanctuary; what if it disappears? What if I need to leave? All I have to offer is my skills in my family style. And..." She takes a deep breath.

"In one of the worlds I went to, someone identified my style as one for... assassins. Is that what I want to be? Is that all I can be?"
