Auggie doesn't venture out of doors at Milliways that often, but after nearly tripping over a waitrat and what sounded like a miniature elephant, and then running into a booth that wasn't there five minutes ago, he's feeling kind of frustrated with the main room. Outdoors is considerably less mutable, or at least less crowded.

Wandering down the path towards the forest -- slowly, with his laser cane scanning the ground in front of him for dips and obstructions -- is calming him down, anyway. He can hear the lake distantly to his right, and the breeze in the trees up ahead.

After what happened last time she ventured out here, Bridget isn't actually terribly keen on the lake. But the project hasn't been going well and she was starting to get frustrated, so she decided to take a snack outside and think about it somewhere nice and quiet. And isolated.



The problem with quiet and isolated, of course, is demon bunnies.



Distantly, off in the forest, someone or something yelps.

There is a pause filled with the rustling of undergrowth.

And then someone or something

roars.

regularsized: Looking straight on, annoyed but calm. (⑮ wanna know my secret?)

The roar is very loud, and it goes on for a long time. Something small and fast and terrified scampers out of the forest in the middle of it and flees right past Auggie, ignoring him completely.

Eventually, the sound trails off... only to be succeeded by a furious shaking of branches and an extended splintering crack, such as might be caused by someone uprooting a tree and then hitting another tree with it until one of them broke.

regularsized: Looking overtop of glasses. Curious or slightly annoyed. (⑪ don't get to see my party trick)
From: [personal profile] regularsized
An echoing snap and two thuds, accompanied by sundry rustlings, as she cracks the tree in half and drops it.

Another roar – less angry, more... disconsolate.

The vibrations of her footsteps as she stomps out of the forest travel through the ground all the way to where Auggie is standing.

Stomp.

Stomp.

Stomp.


Coming closer, but not headed directly for him—headed, in fact, past him on a path that would take her between him and the bar.

Date: 2012-06-03 07:59 pm (UTC)
regularsized: Watchful. Looking to one side. (⑥ but you can control it)

Stomp.

Stomp.

Stomp


stomp.

The next footfall is quieter, and the next. Quieter but faster, and she's angling toward him now.

The Hulk stops in her tracks.

It's not a roar this time so much as a wail, frustrated and... plaintive? Definitely the most human noise she's made thus far.

regularsized: Uncertain or explaining. (⑨ well it's a matter of)
From: [personal profile] regularsized
Words are hard, like this. They're small and fragile and they won't hold still.

She remembers a word.

"Auggie?"

From: [personal profile] regularsized
She rumbles frustratedly. The answer to that is really too complicated for her limited grasp of syntax.

But she knows what he means, so:

"Uh-huh."

Her rueful tone might even be familiar, although considerably distorted.

Date: 2012-06-03 09:22 pm (UTC)
regularsized: Looking to the side, exasperated or wary. (⑭ you wouldn't like me when)
From: [personal profile] regularsized
"Scared," she corrects with a shake of her head she knows he can't see. "Then mad."

Half a beat.

"Okay now," she adds.

Date: 2012-06-03 09:36 pm (UTC)
regularsized: Neutral or ambiguous. Wearing an indigo sweater. (⑤ you're renting my room)
From: [personal profile] regularsized


She sits down on the ground with a thump.

"Sorry."

The Hulk rumbles again, mournfully.



Then, as softly as she can manage: "Come here?"

She makes a frustrated sound and drops her chin onto her folded arms. Talking is hard.

From: [personal profile] regularsized
Very slowly, she unfolds one arm and reaches toward him. Her fingertips brush the back of his free hand.
