Post Reply ϟ Farm of the Forgotten
Posted 7/31/14


Rick stacks the wood in a pile and starts getting large rocks for the fire pit. He puts them together in a circle and makes a small wall with the rocks to create the fire pit. He watches as Skyler finds a knife in a nearby tree and puts it on his belt. Rick smiles to himself, " I wonder if he knows how to use that. I won't force him if he doesn't want to learn." Skyler then says to him about not eating meat. "I don't really need to eat meat right now. I am not a vegetarian but I can go with out meat for a while. I am good with maybe eating some eggs from the chickens around here for now." Rick assessed his fire pit and looks through his pockets in his jacket, "Well it doesn't look like I was a smoker cause I can't find a lighter on me." As Rick goes through his pockets he feels paper in one of them. He pulls out two letters, looking at them with confusion he notices that they have his name on it. The letters look old and worn down as if he had re-read them over and over again. Rick sits down. He isn't sure if he is ready to read the two letters. With his knees bent Rick hold his head in his hand and holds the letters in his other.

"I'll start the fire." Skyler said in a low grumble while looking through his bag for something. Anything that could start a fire. He didn't have anything in his pockets except for a single scalpel from the academy. He took it out and placed it beside him as he continued looking through his bag. At the bottom he found his old and bloodied jacket. Taking out, he immediately felt the need to take revenge but held it off for now. His wound wasn't even fully healed yet. It had to wait but his patience wearing thin. "Damn him. That bastard is gonna die next time I see him." Skyler thought to himself with a scowl. He threw the jacket in the pit to burn as well as some dried hay. Paper isn't always needed. The scalpel was used as a flint to start a spark and in only moments the fire was started. It was then he noticed his companion. "Hey. If you lost your memory too then I suggest you take it slow. Reading those letters, I mean. You never know how you'll react..."

It wasn't until Skyler started talking to him did Rick notice that he had zoned out. He listens to what Skyler said about the letters and nods in agreement and decides to put the two letters back in his pocket for later. There were more important things to worry about. "Hey man sorry about that. Thanks for starting the fire for me. I kinda blanked out after I found those letter. You are right I should take it slow." Rick stares into the fire still in thought. His thoughts were interrupted by the rumbling of his stomach. Rick thinks to himself, " Oh yeah, I guess I havent eaten since I got here. I should try to eat something."

"Hn." Skyler bit his bottom lip with a frown to keep from saying something rude. It was a lot harder than he thought but he said nothing. Even without anything to really trigger his memories even he knew it would hurt to find them. Unless the person had a normal life. Skyler highly doubted that even if Rick seemed to act normal. The way the letters looked told the teen there was more to this guy than what he saw. As for the teen himself, his personality told him that his past was far from great. "Oh. There is a bunch of canned food and such in the bag." He mumbled while pointing torward his bag that stayed a little far from the fire. Good thing Skyler never looked at the inside of his only ring.

Rick looks at Skyler and smiles, "Thanks." He goes to the backpack and gets a can of beans. Rick goes back to the fire and sits down away from the smoke. Opening the can of beans Rick then starts to eat them. While eating he thinks about what they should do for tomorrow. Rick had noticed that Skyler had a wound and was curious how he had gotten it but Rick felt it might be to sensitive of a subject. " Were there others like him and Skyler? What were they doing? Are they friendly or dangerous? " Rick knew that some of these questions they would find out sooner or later. But it bothered him that he had no idea what he was up against. Tig the kitten finds his way to Rick and meows at him. Pawing at his leg signaling him to rub his belly. Rick is grateful for the kitten. It made him less serious and edgy. He leans down to rub the kittens soft belly and chuckles, "You are lucky that I like cats or else you would be out."

"You were staring...." Skyler said in a emotionless tone as he noticed Rick take a look at his wound. One hand went up to lightly rub it though it was subconscious. Lately, he's been doing that. Already did he have a goal in this forgotten world. He was already bitter torward someone and could barely take his mind away from revenge. The scar underneath the bandages was one that he would always see. One everyone could see. A small scowl made it torward his face as he stared into the fire. "Some psycopath fucking bit me. Some people won't try to kill you but others..." Skyler didn't finish but it wasn't out of anger torwards Rick but rather his own weakness. He was unable to kill someone who threatened to out a knife in his chest. "Anyways, just be careful."

"Sorry." Rick listens to how Skyler describes an encounter with another person. He could see the teens anger while talking about it. Rick looks at Skyler's knife and says, "You know I could teach you a few things you can do with that knife to protect yourself if you want." Plus if he was going to have Skyler with him then he would rather have someone who knows some basics skills in fighting.

"I know how to use one. I don't wildly swing like amateurs." Skyler was young and weak looking. Once anyone got past his general looks they woud see someone who was strong. At least compared to most other teenagers or even some early adults. The only thing this teen lacked was experience with true life but he didn't need it. Little did anyone, even himself, know that he was a true adapter to even weapons. All he thought was that he could generally adapt to the environment. Nothing more.

"Alright that's good to know. Glad you can hold your own then." Looks up at the sky. "So how long should be stay here? Should we go somewhere else?" Rick wasn't familiar with this place but Skyler had been here longer. He valued his opinion, although Skyler didn't trust him yet, Rick felt he could trust Skyler.

"We should leave in a day or two at most. Gather all supplies we can, first. People just might show up soon..."Skyler muttered in reply as he just stared at the fire. The boy needed some sleep and wasn't in a hurry to leave yet. If anyone wanted to mess with them, he'll have no problem fighting back. There was no way he was going to be scared away or even killed.

Posted 8/5/14


"Alright then. You should get some rest. I can stay up to make sure no one attacks us. I will wake you in the morning." Rick had thought about how it would go when it came time to sleep. Honestly Rick wasn't tired at all. Just in deep thought. It gave Rick a chance to set things out and try to come up with a plan for when they encountered others. Rick takes out his sword and looks at it. He notices the smoothness of the blade and can tell it is very sharp. This was with him when he woke up and he knew it was apart of his past. He wondered if he had ever killed anyone with this sword. He had a feeling that the answer was yes. Rick wasn't sure if he hated violence but when he thinks about it some pain it associated with it. Something must have happened in his past with this sword and with violence. Rick was determined to find out the truth and get his memories back slowly. And somehow this sword made him calmer and more sure of himself.

"....Alright." Skyler was obviously hesitant in his answer. He was nowhere near trusting anyone, especially someone he barely knew like Rick. The teen may not be able to sleep easy tonight but at least he could rest. Rick had a sword and he only had a knife. There was no way he'd win against the man. Maybe he'd be able to outsmart him. Ah, he was over thinking everything again. With a huff he took a blanket out of the bag and moved to the farthest corner in the barn that still had some hay to lay on. He laid himself down and pretty much hid himself in his blanket. He didn't sleep since he was unable to but he was able to rest his body.

While Skyler went to rest in the barn Rick stayed watch. Listening to the wind blow, noticing the shadows of everything. The kitten Tig came up to rest in Rick's lap and he purred to sleep. Rick had found an old sack in the barn and made a make shift messenger bag. It was also able to carry the kitten while they were on the move. He couldn't leave the little guy behind. Then Rick put his hand in the pocket of the two letters and held them in his hand. He pulled them out of his pocket and just looked on the outside not yet daring to looking inside. He felt that the time would be right to read them once he is a little more sure of who he is. Opening them now would just confuse and frustrate him. But he did see initials on the outside where is says From: EM and AM. "Maybe these are the initials of the people who wrote these letters to me." Rick thought to himself. Well that was a small enough club to not make him to crazy thinking about. Soon the sun would be rising and Rick would wake Skyler so Rick could get a turn to rest.
