[Action - 308 Miller Street]

[Well my good Death's, I hope you enjoy excited fourteen year-old boys, because you have one presently.  Upon heading outside today, Arslan has discovered that he was sent a package.  Not ever having been affected negatively by Mayfield's packages, he figures it has to be something from his own world, just like all the packages before.  He judges by the length of the box that it is most likely his sword, since he can think of nothing else that might be that length, except maybe a standard of some form.]

[After a careful moment to get the box open, he finds he is indeed quite correct, and draws the blade out of it's scabbard to look at it carefully.  Content that the blade is in good shape, he tosses the box away and will proceed excitedly into the house.  He's probably going to show the sword to Azrael, but the household is free to stop him and comment on it.]

[Action - John Doe Park]

A.  Arslan's busy practicing against the air with his sword.  Although it is obvious he knows how to hold the blade, and use it, anyone who's spent a lot of time training will also realize he isn't the strongest with it, and that he's obviously been away from practicing with the larger weapon for quite some time, as he seems to be trying to regain his feel for it.  He stops on occasion, adjusting his grip before starting the practice swings again.  Feel free to catch him at these times, or make a comment in general.

B.  Done practicing for the time being, Arslan has found a tree to sit under and has his head leaned back against it, the sword resting across his lap.  One hand remains on it, but it seems he's relaxing as compared to preparing to take up the blade again.

Be careful running with that in the house.

[After that admonishment that proves she is apparently very much falling into the role she's been assigned, Death smiles]

From home?

From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
I will be. [He smiles at her and nods to the question] Yes, my blade.

[Some people would consider a fourteen year old with a sword strange. Death, however, is far too old for that.]

Had you had it long, before?

Date: 2011-04-11 12:00 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Considering I had spent nearly a year before I came here in battle, yes. [He glances down at the sword, slowly touching the hilt of the blade] I've carried other blades, as well, some purely ornamental. This one is naturally for actual combat.

[Death takes all this in stride. She's not exactly ecstatic about the thought of someone so young in battle, but in some times and places it was what it was]

Does this particular blade have an emotional significance?

Date: 2011-04-12 11:07 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Not a lot, no. It just reminds me of home, and my friends. I don't think I have a lot which holds emotional significance to be honest.

[He pauses at this, and seems unsure if that is a good thing or a bad thing]

[Death smiles]

Reminders of home and friends are important too.

From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Mm... [Arslan nods a bit]

From: [personal profile] bread_goes_bip
I hope you don't end up having to use that here. But...

Date: 2011-04-14 01:07 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
I would hope so as well. Yet it never hurts to have something to protect yourself with, especially here.

From: [personal profile] bread_goes_bip
It seems fairly likely that you'll end up being glad you have it.

Date: 2011-04-14 05:33 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Sadly. [He smiles at her] What about you? Do you have something to protect you?

From: [personal profile] bread_goes_bip
I'm no fighter. I tend to get there when all of that is already over. But anything mortal can only see me if I allow it.

[Death nods]

Not at first, but since Christmas.

From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
[He seems a bit relieved]

That's good. Though... I'm not sure if the powers that be count in that. But if you ever need, I'll help protect you.

From: [personal profile] bread_goes_bip
I haven't tested it on the town's forces, but that's occurred to me.

Thank you, Arslan.

From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
[He nods]

Anyway, I'm going to go show this to Azrael and then go practice. Do you need me to do anything since I'll be out?

[Such a good not!son isn't he?]

Date: 2011-04-15 03:32 am (UTC)
bread_goes_bip: Death, fairly neutral expression (Default)
From: [personal profile] bread_goes_bip
Enjoy yourself, but be careful. And we're running a bit low on tea, actually.

[Best not!son ever!]

Date: 2011-04-15 03:39 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Alright. I'll be careful!

[And he darts off to do what he said he was going to. He'll recall to bring the tea home later]

Date: 2011-04-11 01:49 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] likescats.livejournal.com
[Oh hey, Death is just drinking some tea in the kitchen. Feel free to stop by and show him.]

From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
[Arslan probably will on his way back out. He'll notice the tea but won't ask how the experiments in Death and tea are going. Instead, he'll kind of move into view.]

It seems I finally have my sword back.

Date: 2011-04-12 02:39 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
Yes. Would you like to see?

Date: 2011-04-15 03:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
[Arslan carefully holds the still-sheathed sword out to Death so he can take it to look if he wants. It's a rather plain blade, obviously meant for combat and not decoration.]

Date: 2011-04-15 03:41 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] likescats.livejournal.com
[Death takes it and then takes out the sword to look at it carefully.]

Date: 2011-04-15 03:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
[The sword is fairly plain, but well-crafted and obviously it has been taken care of. The only wear it will show will be the usual that a blade would after being used for a time and involved in battles.]

Date: 2011-04-15 03:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] likescats.livejournal.com
[He places it back in the sheath and passes it back to Arslan]

HAVE YOU HAD IT LONG?

Date: 2011-04-15 04:04 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
A year or two now I think. [Arslan takes the sword and shifts to let it fall to his side in his hand; he'll secure it properly later]

Date: 2011-04-15 04:09 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] likescats.livejournal.com
AND DO YOU FIGHT WITH IT MUCH?

Date: 2011-04-15 04:13 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
No. Usually my soldiers fight, and my strategist keeps me from being too far into the front of the battle.

From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
[Arslan smiles softly. He isn't going to admit that he feels a bit guilty about the fact he's usually near the back, or hidden, and thus protected; he understands why Narsus has him in such positions already.]

I can use it though. I intend to practice when I can here.

Date: 2011-04-15 04:35 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] likescats.livejournal.com
THAT WOULD BE A GOOD USE OF YOUR TIME.

Date: 2011-04-15 04:58 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
[Arslan just nods softly]

Yes. If anything else occurs I want to be able to try to help.

Date: 2011-04-15 06:08 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] likescats.livejournal.com
REMEMBER TO BE CAREFUL.

Date: 2011-04-15 06:33 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] arslansenki.livejournal.com
I will be.
