Post Reply The open skies

Here is the vast blue open sky. It exists over the polluted clouds, that live just above the city. Here is where races are held, battles between carriers, or just normal travel.

Cole, he replies as he turns his head just enough for her to see the clear smile on the side of his face then returning to the front. From that subtle purr coming from the engine heard before, a startling roar fills the hangar. The ship lifts off the ground and a sense of excitement washes over them just before they take off. Suddenly that child like excitement turns into outright fear as the g-forces pin the occupants to the seats. Though, sooner than expected, the gray, polluted, overcast skies caused by the cites factories, were quickly transformed into an ocean of blue, once again changing their emotions. Joy, amazement, comfort, fear, excitement.

Such moments are rare for pilots. Pilots have the luxury of take off on a daily basis, sometimes even twice, but those who arnt pilots get to experience these moments often. Lucky her, this particular take off was a good one, even Cole had to admit to himself that this, was indeed a good take off.

Rosalinda sighed, she loved the open skies, it was amazing... that was one reason she was a sky pirate, nothing could beat such a thrill. She looked at Cole and guilt flooded her. She'd been running away since she was a little girl, the last time she ran away she didn't come back for five years... and only a few days have passed and here she is... running away again....
That's when she thought of Manx. She thought of him and her heart skipped a beat. She felt herself flush and she looked out on the open skies... he was the Phantom, so whatever her heart wanted, it wasn't going to happen.
Preston will be torn up when he finds out, she told herself and mentally kicked herself, I'll not think about this today, I'll think about it tomorrow.

As the ship soared through the free skies, Cold takes the goggles off his eyes and then unbuckles the helmet, allowing the air to dance through his hair.

So you have 4 hours until we reach Riggsbee, then another 6 before we reach La' vale, you have until then to decide when to get off. For now, feel free to take a nap or eat something. Theres a lunchbox behind your seat.

He reaches behind his seat grabbing a lunchbox and then pulls out a sandwich.

She watched Cole and closed her eyes relaxing, "I'm not hungry, I do not eat food." She murmured.

She soon opened her eyes and looked at Cole, "May I ask something?"

I dont see why not

He pauses a moment, taking some time to look at the beautiful clouds which surround them like a sea of angel's feathers.

Something on your mind kid?

"Do you think its wrong to runaway from everything?" She asked

Cole sat there. He sat there quietly, making little corrections as they soar through the sky. She couldnt see his face but if she could she would see a face in deep thought. His eyes seemed to be glazed over with questions and his smile twitched to the side with memories, what could he really be thinking.

A long pause kept time moving slowly, minutes feel like hours and every second adds weight to the air. Wrong to run away...? I wanted to run away... from fighting... Every time a bullet whizzed by my head... I wished it would have tagged me in between the eyes... I coudnt escape it. The cries, the screams, the blood, the fires, the violence... Even now I cant escape it...

...I donno kid... He sounded tired, weighed down from something, weighed down by his memories.

She stared at him for a moment before standing, " I guess I wouldnt know the answer if I didnt go against what I was running away from." She looked at him smiling the making her hair wind blown, like brown ribbon. "See you later?' She asked and took out her gun and dagger and jumped off the side of the air ship.

See you later
Wait what? Cole spins around and sees her jump out of the ship. Damn children, think they are all invincible. He pulls back on the flight stick and twists it rotating the ship into a dive catching up to her. Slowly he gains on her coming closer and closer making sure not to suck her into the large engine, no telling how much it could cost to fix that repair. Making minuscule adjustments, he rotates the ship so his head is next to hers.

HEY! YOU WANNA GET BACK IN, OR DO YOU WANT TO GO SPLAT?!

He nods slightly with a stern face, letting her know that whatever she decides he is ok with.

She smiled a secretive smile and reach out touching his face, "Thanks..." She murmured, "I left the supplies in your airship for the job, see you soon." She told him, her body disappearing into thin air.

He watched her speak but couldnt hear what she said over the loud roar of the engine. He just nods and watches her disappear into the ocean of clouds around them. He pulls back on the stick and lightens the throttle, leveling out just below the cloud line.
