Fandom: Final Fantasy Seven
Theme Set: HW1
Theme(s): Weird 49
Warnings and Notes: Talk of negative things.
Zack: *head hurts. A lot. But he wasn't on his bed. Knew that for a fact. So opens his eyes, and gives the unfamiliar ceiling a confused look. Shifts a bit, and is on a couch. Yes. Don't know that couch, either. Takes a few moments to process, and, vaguely achy, pushes himself up slowly. What? Different clothes as well. Making a slightly confused sound, looks around. Where -was- he?*
Sephiroth: ::had been dealing with a few matters over the phone in his room after doing some simple exercises, and drifts out into the livingroom now that he finally hears something like movement, staying near the door::
Zack: *gives him a confused look, making a questioning sound. Head hurt.*
Sephiroth: You were brought here after last evening turned a bit much for you.
Zack: *blinks and rubs his eyes* Bit much? All I had was beer....
Sephiroth: And at least one drug cocktail. ::He quirked an eyebrow at him, then padded across the room:: I was informed you were rather distressed by your suitor last evening, and I'm inclined to agree, you were very fussy when you got here.
Zack: *long moment of quiet, then shivers, hard.* Ew....
Sephiroth ::nods slightly:: I must agree. You weren't entirely violated from what I understood, as you were quite distressed at 'hands' but I cleaned you anyway.
Zack: *wraps the blanket around himself, looking incredibly horrified*
Sephiroth: You still had clothes on when you got here ::tilts his head, vaguely hoping that made the man feel better::
Zack: *does relax. A tiny bit. Very tiny bit. Still has wide eyes* I don't feel so good....
Sephiroth: If you feel the urge to be ill, the bathroom is just there. ::points to it and shifts to the side of the doorway::
Zack: *shakes his head, and shifts to stand, swaying just a bit* Gonna go back to my rooms. *and take a long, hot, -hot- shower*
Sephiroth: ::eyes him a little:: Sit. ::gestures him back down:: You're in no state to move that far.
Zack: Wanna go take a shower. *snarls a bit* Then I'm gonna find out who did that and make them regret it. For a while.
Sephiroth: It's no one I've ever caught scent of near you before, nor one I recognize, and the drug itself isn't one I know. ::shakes his head:: If you need to shower, you can do it here, then, at least, I'll be assured you aren't in the rather ah.... limp note any longer that you were last evening. You seem better, but you aren't entirely on your feet.
Zack: *shivers a bit* Why would anyone drug me? *wide eyes at Seph, shifting from foot to foot, needing movement*
Sephiroth: Apparently they wanted relations with you.
Zack: *growls at the man*
Sephiroth: ::quirks an eyebrow:: Why they would is entirely for you to decide, though I'm mostly disturbed at the lack of being able to identify the drug. It did put you quite far from your normal state.
Zack: *sits again, curling up and wrapping the blanket around himself again* I don't like the fact I got drugged, Seph. *rather quiet, empty tone*
Sephiroth: ::moves over and crouches to peer at his face:: That is a very healthy reaction I believe.
Zack: *looks at him, feeling tired* Yeah, Seph. It is.
Sephiroth: Then you have no cause to be concerned over the matter, as clearly there will be no recurrent troubles from the incident. ::small shrug, and pushes back to his feet:: You broke the individual's arm as well from what I was told.
Zack: *just looks at him, a bit stunned. No cause to be concerned....*
Sephiroth: ::catches the look and sighs inwardly:: It will not happen again ::quirks an eyebrow::
Zack: *just pushes to his feet and heads for the door*
Sephiroth: ::actually sighs this time:: Apparently I fail to be at my most encouraging. Sit, if you would, and tell me what that look was then.
Zack: *spins, having to make a quick shift of his foot to the side to keep from falling. Damn balance* Seph, there is -plenty- of reason to be concerned. Someone -drugged- me. Even if it was just a one time thing, someone -drugged- me. And I apparently had to be carried out. Yeah, there's a lot to be concerned about that.
Sephiroth: ::eyes him. he wasn't balanced enough to be out in the halls.:: And if the individual is located I'm certain he will be interrogated and severely injured if not killed ::small shrug:: you will be alert to the possibility in the future, and you arrived here without further harm. Hendriks and Hayes were the ones who delivered you.
Zack: *growls, and turns for the door again* I don't like the fact I got made that helpless so easily, Seph. *twitches* Or the fact that someone out there has drugs that can knock down a SOLDIER like that. *moves for the door again*
Sephiroth: ::sighs, slipping forward to catch the shirt through the layer of blanket and fisting it around his hand:: You are not the only one disturbed, however, possibilities are narrowed with the fact that you were drugged, and you cannot deal with the problem right this second, so, calm.
Zack: *yelps slightly, falling back at the tug. Had been moving forward, and the sudden stop didn't help his balance at all*
Sephiroth: ::sighs and grabs his arm with his other hand, yanking him upright:: Now then. Back to having you seated ::pulls him back that direction::
Zack: *twists his arm a bit. Okay, that was a bit painful. Stumbles a bit, and gets his feet back under him. Better. Not most of his weight on his arm now. Sighs, drained* Fine.
Sephiroth: ::seats him, then eyes him:: You aren't about to attempt to flee again are you?
Zack: *shakes his head, looking at the ground*
Sephiroth: ::releases him, studying him:: You arrived here essentially fine Zack, though with the obvious issue of being drugged. No, I do not approve, but the issue will be dealt with in due time. What more do you expect to accomplish?
Zack: *sighs* I'm mildly freaked out, Seph. My apologies. *slight bitterness to the tone* I'll try to ignore it.
Sephiroth: ::frowns at him:: Don't be facetious.
Zack: Don't even know what that means, Seph.
Sephiroth: ::represses the urge to glare:: Being humorous or unserious of the situation. I believe I will place sarcasm in that corner for the time being.
Zack: *curls his legs up against his chest* Fine. *back to the tired voice.*
Sephiroth: ::eyes him, frowning still:: You're fine Zack. I made sure there were no serious injuries and that you were attended to. What more do you want?
Zack: *mumbles against his knees, eyes shut* Shouldn't have had to.... *and wasn't this just perfect. Was getting "you're being an idiot" vibe from Seph again.*
Sephiroth: I did. I see no reason for that to bother you in and of itself. ::shakes his head sharply:: Better myself than someone with dubious intent or trustworthiness.
Zack: *small nod, and almost says something about dubious intentions, but just lets it go instead. Didn't want Seph snarking at him about his sense of humor again. Not right now.*
Sephiroth: ::eyes him:: Enough. You aren't broken. If you direly feel you need a cure, I can provide one, but elsewise, you shouldn't be in such a state. Unless, of course, my presence is unsettling you to that degree?
Zack: *rolls his eyes* No, I'm not broken. But you already made yourself clear on what you thought about my humor at the moment, Seph. And, no offense, but you are such a jackass. Just so you know. Excuse me for having a somewhat freaked out reaction to the fact I got drugged with who knows what and someone attempting to put themselves in my pants by force. Yes, I apparently fended them off and when I catch them, I will hurt them, but it doesn't make the fact that I'm freaked out go away. *glares at him* You are my friend, Seph. I trust you. Still shouldn't have to take care of me when I'm like that. *runs a hand through his hair.* And I don't have to defend my reactions, damnit.
Sephiroth: Then don't. ::small shrug:: Better angry than moping in either case. I know I'm not the most pleasant of people Zack, and if I hadn't wished to deal with you in such a way, I would have closed the door in their faces. Clear?
Zack: *growls faintly* Fuck you. *grumbles* Fine. You've pissed me off. Happy now? Still doesn't make me any less freaked out. I'll just save it for later.
Sephiroth: I do not like the concept that such an event might have damaged you. If you being angry surfaces signs that you'll mend well enough, then yes, I'm perfectly content to have made you angry with me.
Zack: Seph, you just delayed my breakdown is all. *shakes head and then gives a small smile* Honestly, having a freakout is a healthy reaction. Relieves stress without me breaking things.
Sephiroth: ::frowns a little, a flash of puzzlement coming and going before he shook his head:: I see. If that is how you work then that is how you work. ::considers saying something more before brushing the thought aside:: Carry on then.
Zack: Too late. Pissed now. *scowls at him* So, what other gems do you have waiting to fuck with my brain? Anything else I'm not allowed to do besides freak out or indulge in black humor?
Sephiroth: It was more the vicious apology humor that I took exception to, and sarcasm is a brand of humor. ::faint shrug, watching him:: You are allowed to do as you please, though I would not advise leaving yet. ::half pause:: You know as well as I do I that wasn't intending to damage you.
Zack: *sighs* I know, Seph.
Sephiroth: ::nods, tiny half frown in place:: Do as you feel you need to. If you feel you need another shower, take one, I'll set aside clean clothing for you.
Zack: *a small nod* Thanks. *stands again, rubbing a hand over his face. Then gives Seph a small smile.* Really, though. Thank you. *pause, and then remembers where the bathroom had been pointed out, and heads for it. This was a really -weird- morning*
Sephiroth: ::blinks, then simply shakes his head and moves off to get clothing, the ones that he'd slept in apparently were going to need changed, so he rifled through his closet to find something else, then tapped his knuckles once against the bathroom door before nudging it open::
Zack: *is holding up the shirt he had been wearing, looking at it speculatively* This yours?
Sephiroth: ::puts down the clothing he'd brought on the counter after making sure the spot was clean and dry:: Indeed.
Zack: *nods slightly* Why didn't you bring it on vacation?
Sephiroth: ::quirks an eyebrow at him:: They're private clothes.
Sephiroth: And I don't wear them in front of others, obviously.
Zack: *opens his mouth to say something, then closed it. Frowned for a brief moment, then nodded* Okay.
Sephiroth: ::quirks an eyebrow:: What?
Zack: *shakes his head* It's nothing. So, thank you for lending them to me, by the way.
Sephiroth: ::frowns at him for a beat. He really, truly despised that answer, but doesn't press his point. Fine.:: You needed clothing, it's clothing. I know you won't destroy them.
Zack: By the way, where -are- my clothes?
Sephiroth: ::pauses for a beat:: They had thing on them ::small shrug::
Zack: *eyes him* Seph?
Sephiroth: ::quirks an eyebrow:: Zack.
Zack: My clothes?
Sephiroth: You wanted them back?
Zack: Seeeeeph! That was my favorite shirt.
Sephiroth: Oh. What made it that?
Zack: It's one of the few shirts I brought from home that still fit. *eyes him* Let me guess. You destroyed it somehow, right?
Sephiroth: ::a pause:: Hm. I suppose I can't buy you a new one then.
Zack: *frowns.* Right. Out. Showering.
Sephiroth: I suppose you want the thing back then?
Zack: If you haven't decided that it was okay to destroy my things without asking yet, yeah, I would. *sets Seph's shirt down and starts to push him for the door*
Sephiroth: ::shifts his stance without it really occurring to him that Zack was trying to get him to move:: I'll return it when it's clean then. And what are you doing?
Zack: I'm going to take a shower. Which I won't do if you are here, cause I'll get distracted talking to you.
Sephiroth: ::quirks an eyebrow:: You will?
Zack: Yep. You are just that damn interesting to talk to. Out.
Sephiroth: I have seen you in the shower before you realize. ::quirks an eyebrow::
Zack: *dry tone* No, really? *amazing amounts of sarcasm* If you really want, I'll just go to my rooms and take my shower.
Sephiroth: Where there is certainty that I cannot be sure you won't drown yourself. Hm. Well, you limit my options, don't you? Though, if I move now, will you fall over?
Zack: No. I've gotten most of my balance back. Still have the headache.
Sephiroth: Ah. Apologies. I suppose I should have cured you at some point ::considers this:: When you're done then.
Zack: Fine. Out!
Sephiroth: ::nods slightly and shifts in place slightly so that he wasn't as well braced on the floor::
Zack: *growls slightly and pushes again*
Sephiroth: ::is pushed, though can't help a flicker of amusement:: Enjoy your shower Zack.
Zack: Seph, I'm going to murder you someday. Just so you know. *nods and continues to shove him out the door*
Sephiroth: Are you? How unfortunate. ::lets himself be steered::
Zack: *makes a strangled sound, and, as soon as he got him past the doorframe, bites his shoulder, then lets go and shuts the door. Firmly shuts the door. Not quite a slam, but close*
Sephiroth: ::frozen for a beat:: You -bit- me!! Zack!
Zack: *cackles, then goes to start the water. Bwaha! Teach him to torment him.*
Sephiroth: ::stares at the door for another beat, then eyes his shoulder. He bit him! And then took over his bathroom.::Why did you do that?!
Zack: *hums, ignoring him, and finishes getting undressed. So what if the water was far too hot. Still hops in. Wanted hot water. Make the icky feel get off his skin.*
Sephiroth: ::scowls at the door, then huffs and turns to head down the hall, collecting a shirt before going to the kitchen, muttering to himself. He bit him! He -bit- him. He couldn't believe this. Hmph. Breakfast, yes. He bit him. Grrrr::
