[OPEN] Where do I go?

Post by Sora Kimura on Fri Sep 05, 2014 12:55 am

(It isn't really in the streets (unless someone takes the thread there) but I don't know where else to put this thread)

I've been wandering through town again. I've done this before. I've told myself it's to learn the layout sometimes, and it has helped, but really my only reasoning is a lack of much else that I feel like doing. Wandering is fine. Not having direction can be fun sometimes.
Only sometimes, mind. I feel like I haven't had a proper direction in a while. Going as long as I have without one is not as fun as going a couple hours or so instead.

A lack of direction has brought me somewhere that having one probably never would, though. I've seen this place passing by maybe once or twice, but usually thought of it as a place that shouldn't be entered without a purpose. I forgot that notion today, and so here I am.
A cemetery.
They had always struck me as a dark and sorrowful thing, but that's likely because I had no experience with them. Perhaps, if I had a sorrowful memory to associate with a cemetery, they would still strike me as sorrowful. But, now I'm here, with a proper view in place of a guess, and it's... oddly peaceful.
It should be peaceful, I suppose. Some sort of notion that you shouldn't disturb the dead, maybe. Some sort of etiquette that I never had to learn of, but seems like it would be in place.
Maybe that means I shouldn't be here, but I dismiss the notion before truly considering it.
It gives me an idea for a drawing - mostly just drawing the scene before me, maybe with some added things - but that happens a lot. Ideas, with little to come of them. I haven't actually made a proper drawing in a while; a sketch sometimes, but never anything full and finished.
I push the thought out of my mind, as it's a troubling one that may invite other, equally troubling thoughts to follow it. A cemetery would have dark thoughts associated with it thought could probably do so, in the wrong mood.
I'm not really in the wrong mood, though. Wrong, perhaps, in others' eyes, in that maybe I'm not supposed to find this place pleasant, but not wrong in the sense that I think of it.

It seems I've caught someone's attention, though. The place isn't big enough to easily get out of sight from the entrance very easily.

Today was a day unlike the many days where he would be at Yamaku, teaching, or with his brother, giving him a helping hand at the small hospital. This had been the second time this year he had come here to Misaki, and he told her about How he was doing at his new workplace, how his brother would be annoyed with his little pranks and snarky attitude, chuckling and telling her to forgive his rash and crazy behaviour, saying "I'm living our dream now, hon..." before setting down a box of sushi and flowers. "You really liked white roses, didn't you? They're hard to come by now..." He gave a sad smile, then raised his head towards the sky.

"Well, looks like it isn't something I can say, Misaki, but you should feel it too." Marcus said, looking down at the grave and smiled. It had only been 4 or 5 years, give or take the months, since she had died, and he was still blaming himself. "Heh, a grown man blaming themselves about something that isn't even in their hands... If only I could hav done something more." He then proceeded to kneel at the grave, letting out a lone tear before standing up and turning to walk away.

The young boy who just walked through the entrance of the cemetery grabbed Marcus' attention. "Another person? I wonder... Maybe to pay their condolences." He slowly walked up to the boy, breathing slowly to keep the sudden rush of emotions down and wiped his face from anything that would emphasize that he had teared up.

"Hello." I greet a man that walks up to me. I must have missed him before. Not like I've been looking around for too long anyway.
After a short pause, I ask him "Are you here for a reason?" Not in a way of saying that he shouldn't be here, as another person in another context might ask the same question, but instead as genuine curiosity.
I don't feel like I am.

Marcus looked at the boy before saying something. "Let me answer your question with a question. What brings you here? Your own reason?" He stood beside him and smiled softly before looking at the gate once more. "And to quench your curiosity, yes, I was here for a reason."

I pause to think about his question, since I'm not immediately sure about the answer.
"I haven't visited here before. I guess I wanted to see what it was like. It seems kinda nice."
I glance around the area as I speak, still somewhat interested in my surroundings despite having seen a fair portion of it already.
