After 2012

Post by TheSilentWitch on May 1st 2011, 5:49 am

The flaaffy peered out over the edge of the cliff, down at the still waters below... A few odd squid swam about there, but... No one intelligent. Not like her. She was alone... Very alone...

She turned and sighed, reeling in her fabricated fishing line... She'd caught a few fish, which were all stored in the small pack on her back. She'd take them home and cook them and eat, in silence, as usual...

She walked through the small forest and back to the "town", which was really just a collection of empty stone huts she'd built... All of them meant to look like an occupied house, but... They were as empty inside as this world was...

She gave a soft "Hmm..." just to hear her own voice as she looked up at the sun... It was setting, and she definitely had to be in by dark... So she made her way through her little town and to the larger two story fort she'd built, pushing the door open and entering before making sure the door was secure. Then she went about storing her various finds of the day before she took some coal from one of her chests and put it in her furnace, beginning to roast the fish she'd caught...

While the fish roasted, the flaaffy would be able to see the quickly darkening land outside her window. But not all dark, it would seem...

A gentle white glow appears to wash over the ground surrounding one of her supposedly empty stone huts where the others all stand fully dark and gloomy as usual. As the curious flaaffy leaves the safety of her home to investigate, she would find one of the huts did indeed look very lived in.
There were around 5 or so lanterns hung on the walls and set on the floor, flooding the one room structure with light that would ward off the dangerous and hostile creatures that come out at night.
There was a stone furnace with what looked like a bucket set inside it and a few pieces of meat on top of it. Beside that was a table set with various sticks, some bits of string, and some feathers.
All of this pointed that someone was here but the flaaffy couldn't see them yet. That is... until she steps further into the open stone hut to notice a slight gleam of metal in the corner. Turning to it would reveal a cat. But not just any cat, a mostly black two-tailed cat wearing what looked like iron plating on her back, chest, and head. She had her eyes closed, sleeping apparently while her dinner sizzled and popped on the stove.

The flaaffy gently picked up the pieces of meat to look them over... She grimaced just slightly at the thought of actually eating them, but stored the idea away for later. Desperate times and all that...

Then... She noticed the sleeping form... And her heart skipped a beat, almost literally. She squeaked in surprise and jerked backward, slamming into the stove and causing the (thankfully nearly empty) bucket to clatter loudly to the floor. The flaaffy had to quickly jerk back to avoid being scalded by the lava that poured out of the bucket, but thankfully, it was just a small puddle...

But even through all this, the female ignored the impending danger once she was sure she'd be okay, and stared at the armored cat laying nearby... Another being...? Was it really... Someone else...? Was her loneliness finally... Ended...?

The noise makes the cat's large ears perk up, followed close behind by her head as she springs up and takes on a defensive pose. When she sees it's not a monster, however, she eases slightly and tilts her head, "Where did you come from?" she asks, trotting over to pick up the bucket and begin scooping up the molten rock before it hurt them and replaces it in the furnace.

The flaaffy's ears twitched softly as well as she stared for a moment. The only thing she had to defend herself was her clunky stone sword, which she was holding loosely in one paw, her wool snapping softly as she stayed silent for a few moments... Then quietly said, "I live here... In the biggest house on top of the hill... Where did YOU come from...?"

Her voice was just slightly raspy and pained, because she didn't use it much, but she managed to get out her words into an understandable sentence...

"Far away..." she replies, "I got lost while mining a few days ago and resurfaced nearby here. I took shelter here because it seemed abandoned." she adds, perking her ears suddenly, "Are these your homes too? I didn't know. I'll pack up and go if you don't want me in here..." she says, her voice sounding more used but still quiet, almost as if she were muttering to herself instead of another being.

"No... Don't go, please..." the sheep said, placing a paw gently to her chest... "I... Was just surprised. I didn't think there was anyone besides me... Left." she managed a soft smile, one that betrayed her inner excitement at having someone new nearby... "You must have traveled far to get here... I've searched this whole island over a few times and never have I seen another house or hut..."

The feline merely shrugs, "I don't know how far I've come or how to get home..." she replies, "But this seems like a nice island too." she smiles, "It's very warm and has these." she continues, holding up a bright red flower, "These didn't grow well where I come from."

"Those are everywhere here..." the flaaffy said, her smile widening softly... "I have a few in my main house, if you'd like to co-" her sentence was cut off suddenly as her eyes narrowed... Her ears perked and stood on end, something that was extremely rare for her species... But she'd heard it... The sound she never wanted to hear, especially in an enclosed space...

Ssssssssssss...

Quickly she jerked forward, nearly into the Baneko as she spun and looked behind her. Sure enough, outside, one of the blighted creepers was staring in through the window, but as soon as the flaaffy got away from it, it stopped swelling up and slowly deflated... Unfortunatly, it also started to try to figure out where the door was...

An arrow shaft suddenly stuck in its eye, however, knocking it back a short distance. Three more soon follow and the creature tips over, deflating fully until there was virtually nothing left of its body but a pile of grey powder...
The bakeneko stands behind the flaaffy, a bow held tightly in her forepaws with another arrow knocked and ready to fire. She was obviously experienced in dealing with such creatures...
She lowers her arrow when she sees the creature die, turning to the flaaffy, "Does your home have a door on it?" she asks.

"It has a door, two layers of cobblestone, and a purple carpet with some nice blue wallpaper..." she said, going off on a tangent for a moment before she shook her head, "I mean yes! Yes it has a door on it! It's where I usually hide at night..." she looked over at the various things the cat had scattered about and quickly began to gather them into her pack...

The bakeneko also helps her gather up everything that lay strewn around the small space. It mainly amounted to a chest of stone and spare iron, a few nearly broken tools, and some crafting supplies. The bow and arrows are placed in the cat's bag just before she takes the meat off the furnace and stores it as well.
The furnace and its heat source, along with the table and the lanterns are all that remain in the stone hut. Seeming as though the bakeneko percieved them as disposable or easily replaced....

The flaaffy gathered the things quickly, then grabbed her sword and peered out the window, tilting her head softly... She quivered a bit as she muttered, "Get ready... I hear Spiders and Skeletons and all sorts of moans and groans... Its going to be a mad dash..."

The sound of a bow string being drawn tight is all that answers the sheep as the bakeneko makes her way slowly outside the hut.
Her large ears could detect the noise of a few zombies too. Meaning the full hoard was out tonight...

They came and went, as most everything did... But tonight, they were all heard, growling and moaning their heads off... As they moved out, they couldn't see any, but the perimeter of torches ensured that none would sneak up on them, as they crept towards the bigger fort...

The bakeneko kept her arrow drawn tight in the bowstring, moving lithely on her back paws as she moves through the ring of torchlight. Her twin tails sway gently but as her black fur begins to meld more and more with the growing shadow, they become deathly still and only twitch occasionally to show her heightened focus in the hostile world outside the light.
Her large ears swivel constantly to catch all sounds. She suddenly jumps, avoiding an arrow that had been shot at her from somewhere nearby. She growls softly, taking in the direction at which the shaft stuck in the ground before loosing her own arrow into the dark.
It makes a clattering noise when it strikes whatever was there, sounding like several sticks being banged together...

"Nyuu... Skeletons... I hate Skelet- AH!" gasped the sheep, as yet another arrow whizzed through the dark and slammed directly into her, sticking in her wool. She whimpered softly as she gripped it, but felt it was deep inside her...

She began to softly drip blood, but she didn't care. Another arrow whizzed by as she made a break for the fort she'd made, shoving open the door just as a hoard of zombies stepped into the torchlight...

The bakeneko doesn't manage to break through the group of monsters closing in on her, though. Instead, she's nearly lost from view as the zombies continue to mill.
A sharp yip pierces through the night air, announcing that she'd been hit. A brief view through the zombies would show one of her tails being pinned beneath a fallen monster as she frantically brandishes a worn iron sword at them. The weapon appears old and beaten, threatening to break at any moment and obviously not something to be fending off such a large hoard of monsters with.
"Griel!!" she screams, sounding like nonsense or a war cry as she lunges as far as she could with her tail pinned.
As predicted, her sword breaks almost instantly and leaves her defenseless. It seems as though she would be killed when there came another sort of growl over the din of the monsters... Suddenly, one of the zombies is knocked to the ground in a flash of red fur, "Good boy, Griel! Over here!" the bakeneko calls, as another flash of red eliminates another zombie.
It allows the wounded flaaffy a glance at 'Griel', showing him to be a lithe wolf with dark red fur. Another growl brings a silver flash next, helping the red wolf destroy and chase off the mob until the front yard of the fort was nothing but a mess of feathers and zombie parts.
The two wolves trot up to the bakeneko and nudge the dead monster off of her tail before sitting down in front of her. She smiles at them, reaching into her bag for two bones which she tosses up for them to catch, "Good dogs."

The flaaffy watches the dogs grab the bones, her eyes wide... She'd seen the wolves before, but she'd always stayed well clear of the predetory beasts... Yet here was two, tame as a... Well, kitten... The flaaffy was very confused and a little guilty she'd left the strange cat in the dust, so she pushed open the door and called, "Get in here quick, so I can activate the arrow dispensers!"

The cat looks up, nodding to her and running through the door. Her wolves follow close behind, bones held tightly in their teeth, as they enter the safety of the fort.
The two dogs do indeed seem perfectly tame as even in the enclosed space of the fort, they merely seek out an open space to lie down. Thus out of the way, they quietly gnaw on their reward for saving their mistress with tails slowly sweeping the floor.

The flaaffy quickly thumped the doors shut, peering out to see the creepers creeping forward and hissing softly as she stepped back quickly and closed the inner chamber doors to be perfectly safe. Then she pulled a switch next to the door, causing a redstone circuit to start glowing. Outside, a few soft clicks were heard, followed by some loud twangs and moans of pain. The flaaffy seemed a bit relieved as she heard this, then turned and, without much ceremony, she yanked the arrow out of her skin, bloodying her wool slightly, but she ignored it as she discarded the arrow and said, "Are you okay...?" as she looked up to the cat...

"Yeah." she replies, taking a quick inventory of herself. Aside from a few small cuts and bruises, she did appear perfectly fine, "I think the worst I got was a crushed tail." She looks up at the flaaffy, eyes widening at the bloody wool, "Were you hurt??" she asks.

"I caught an arrow with my chest. I'll be okay." muttered the flaaffy, as she wiped the blood away gently on a wool cloth... "A night of sleep will do me good... Ah... Reminds me... You and your... Dogs need a bed, right?"

The bakeneko looks over at the two wolves, laying on the floor contentedly now that they'd finished their bones, "Nah. Griel and Will should be fine on the floor. I'll be okay, too." she smiles, setting her bag down next to her wolves before pulling a dark purple dyed wool blanket out to drape over the two. She then pulls another, green one out and bunches it up on the floor next to them before curling up in the folds of fabric. Exactly like a cat. She appeared to be used to living without much for comfort items...

"A-Are you sure? I have wood and... Wool, obviously..." she said, nipping at her bloodied scarf of fuzz gently... "I could knock a bed together in just a few moments, Miss... Uh... I don't recall if I got your name...?" the female said, tilting her head softly as she went to gather a few herbs for their wounds from the chest sitting nearby...
