What's... going on in this place? I went to thank Ron for the other day and... and...

He didn't recognize me at all! His face looked blank and his clothes were all grey...

Is this... *sniffle* what 'droning' does to people? Why?!

[And the poor crane girl breaks down over the phone.]

[Crying Iroha? That won't do at all! Hachibe doesn't even bother responding over the phone - he's over at Iroha's place as fast as his feet can carry him, knocking on her door.]

Hm?

*A knock at the door? Iroha wipes her eyes and gets up to answer it*

Hachibe-san...

From: [identity profile] pygmalion-perv.livejournal.com
You sounded sad and lonely, so I thought maybe you'd like some company.

Date: 2010-11-14 02:28 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
I... *Sniffle* Thank you, Hachibe-san.

*Have a hug, as she starts to sob even more*

[Hachibe gladly hugs back, gently rubbing at Iroha's upper back. He's just gonna let her cry it out for the time being.]

*And she cries for quite a while*

I don't... want him to be a drone... he was my friend...

From: [identity profile] pygmalion-perv.livejournal.com
[Keeps on hugging and being supportive, lightly stroking her hair if she'll let him.]

"It's tough, I know. The 'mom' in my house just got droned too. We weren't that close yet, but it's really lonely."

Date: 2010-11-14 03:28 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
Y-your mom...? That's terrible... *choke*

*She clings to him and keeps crying* So you're alone...?

Date: 2010-11-14 03:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pygmalion-perv.livejournal.com
"Yeah... just me and the drones now."

[Laughs a little, trying to keep the mood at least somewhat light. After all, she's the one he's here to comfort. It wouldn't be good at all to just dump his problems on her.]

"But don't worry. I'm fine. I just want to know you're okay."

Date: 2010-11-14 04:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
I... I am sure I will be fine. I'm going to miss him, is all.

I never even got the chance to make him that 'cole slaw' he told me about...

Date: 2010-11-14 05:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pygmalion-perv.livejournal.com
"I know."

[Nods, squeezing a little before letting go of the hug.]

"Um... if there's anything I can do for you, let me know, okay? I'm here if you need me."

Date: 2010-11-14 04:01 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
Thank you, Hachibe-san...

*She's just going to sniffle for a while*

Ah, I think I need a new box of facial tissue. I used mine up...

Date: 2010-11-14 04:56 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pygmalion-perv.livejournal.com
Do you want to go out and buy some together? A walk around town might do some good.

Date: 2010-11-15 04:03 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
Y-yes, I could use some fresh air. You're so sweet, Hachibe-san.

*She's wiping her tears away*

Date: 2010-11-15 04:05 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pygmalion-perv.livejournal.com
[Smiles and winks, offering his arm for her to take. He's all up on this gentleman thing.]

"Ready when you are!"

Date: 2010-11-15 04:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
*She takes his arm, even though she's still sniffling a little*

Let us go, then.

Date: 2010-11-15 05:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pygmalion-perv.livejournal.com
[Hachibe's on cloud nine right now. He managed to cheer Iroha up, and now they're walking together with the side of her breast up against his arm as they go. Things are going really well!]

"Oh... I got those pictures from before developed. I'll bring them over next time. We can pick out some frames for them today too if you feel like it."

*She gives the perfect :O! face before covering her mouth*

They are? I would love to see them.

Date: 2010-11-16 02:42 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pygmalion-perv.livejournal.com
[Finds himself glancing at her face for a stray moment.]

"...They're really beautiful."

[Scratches at his cheek a little.]

Date: 2010-11-16 03:12 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
I cannot wait to see them Hachibe-san.

Date: 2010-11-16 03:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pygmalion-perv.livejournal.com
You'll definitely like them, I promise.

Date: 2010-11-14 01:13 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] maid-in-synch.livejournal.com
Yes. Those are the signs of droning.

[straight and the point, as always.]

Date: 2010-11-14 04:01 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
Wh-what's going to happen to him after this? Is he gone forever?

Date: 2010-11-14 10:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] maid-in-synch.livejournal.com
It is possible it is only temporary... but I would assume the worst.

Date: 2010-11-15 04:02 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
*The thought of him never coming back... now that makes her cry even more*

I hope it is temporary... but... but...

Date: 2010-11-15 04:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] maid-in-synch.livejournal.com
I am sorry for your loss.

[she's not sure why she's saying this, but she feels like it may help...]

My sister was droned as well, shortly after my arrival.

Date: 2010-11-15 04:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
I... thank you.

Your sister, too? How often does this happen?

Date: 2010-11-15 04:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] maid-in-synch.livejournal.com
I am not sure... it does seem to be rather frequent, though.

...there is no way of knowing whether it is permanent until another person replaces the drone completely. This happened with my first mother here.

Date: 2010-11-15 04:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
How horrible. Now I wonder if the children who stay with us were once normal people.

What kind of place is this? At first I thought it was peaceful, but after this, I am not so sure.

Date: 2010-11-15 04:48 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] maid-in-synch.livejournal.com
It... is certainly possible...

This place is deceptive, to say the least. I suggest that you always be on your guard, Iroha-san.

Date: 2010-11-15 04:56 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
I will do so. Again, thank you for your kind words.

Ron... you mean that Ronald May guy? He's brainwashed too?!

Date: 2010-11-15 04:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
*She tries to speak between the choking and sobbing*

You... you knew him too?

Date: 2010-11-18 05:11 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] inb4gar.livejournal.com
Yeah. I was living with him for awhile but I got brainwashed or droned or... however people say it. Now that I came to after a good month or two passed from what I last remembered what happened, I'm in a different house now.

I didn't think he had friends outside of his red group.

Date: 2010-11-18 07:56 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
His Red Group? I do not remember him telling me about them.

Date: 2010-11-19 12:41 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] inb4gar.livejournal.com
I've only met with them once. That was enough, but he did like being with them when I used to live with him. That much I noticed.

Date: 2010-11-19 03:20 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
I would... like to meet them. Do you know where they live?

Date: 2010-11-19 03:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] inb4gar.livejournal.com
I can't say that I know who exactly they are but... I remember one of them going by the name of 'RED Pyro' or something like that nature. They might have changed since I have been droned too. I don't mean to get your hopes up but that much I can say to you as of right now.

Date: 2010-11-19 04:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] lovely-crane.livejournal.com
It is okay. I will have to find these RED people and ask more about droning.

Thank you.
