« Thread started on: Dec 6th, 2007, 3:10pm »

Larghetto had walked all the way to the middle of the desert by himself. When he saw a crow perched on a cactus, he sat down and stared at it. The silence bothered him, and he started to sing softly to himself. The only thing that came to mind was a drinking song.
"Show me the way to go home. I'm tired and I want to go to bed. I had a little drink about an hour ago and it went right to my head. Wherever I may roam, on land or sea or foam, you'll always hear me singing this song... I want to go home."

Sicilia looked about her very nervously. She had never been this far out in the desert by herself. In fact, the last time she was ever out here was with Larghetto in the first place. The girl found it quite ironic, since she was now out here searching for him.

When she was preparing to give up hope and walk back to town to search for him there, Sicilia heard soft singing not to far ahead. She lifted her head up and noticed a figure ahead. Hoping it wasn't a mirage, she ran foreward hurriedly. "Larghetto?" she called her voice shaking.

Larghetto looked in the direction the voice came from. He wasn't sure if Sicilia would come look for him or not. He abruptly stopped singing and looked her straight in the eye.
"I'm sorry I killed your fiance."
He couldn't think of a better way to say it.

Sicilia looked down at the ground. "I don't blame you, Larghetto. You didn't pull the trigger. However, I don't blame him either," she muttered.

Larghetto shook his head.
"I blame me. That man who shot Hellister was trying to help me," he said quietly, looking back at the crow.
"I've never heard Fermata cry like that. I couldn't even help her. She went to Jamie. Not me."

Sicilia reached out her hand to Larghetto. "It'll be okay, Larghetto. I promise it will. Fermata still loves you I'm sure," she told him.

"I still think I dissapointed her. She didn't want me to do this. Hellister was her friend," Larghetto said sadly.
"I probably should have listened to her. This has never happened to me before. I've never been responsible for another person's death, even indirectly like this."

Sicilia sighed. "You'd rather of not told me then?" she asked.

Larghetto opened his mouth to speak and closed it again.
"I don't know. I can't say. Maybe things would be different if I hadn't. I could have said something earlier or later. It could be different then," he said. "Or maybe you would have even been happy with him."

"Maybe, maybe not," Sicilia muttered looking at the ground. She turned around and looked at the crow. "I doubt it though. I just wanted to make him happy, because I doubted that I could ever tell you," she said.

"My mother never loved my father, but she grew to love him as a close friend in their marriage because she didn't want to hurt him," Larghetto said with a shrug. He sighed and lay down on the ground, closing his eyes.
"Hellister. I won't be happy until Hellister forgives me."

Sicilia sat down and tucked her legs under her. "Oh, Larghetto. I don't believe I could have ever enjoyed living with Hellister, honestly. I'd always have been thinking of you. Yes, I wouldn't want to hurt him, and I'd probably have loved him as a close friend, but I could never have loved him like I love you," she sighed.

Larghetto nodded absent-mindedly.
"So, where do we go from here?" he said after a long pause. Thinking of the future now brought him little comfort. He needed to find Hellister.

"I'm not sure. By the sounds of it, you want somethingelse right now," she replied, "You need to meet up with Hellister, some how. Well, you want to anyway."

"Yeah, I do. I wouldn't even know where to find him, or if he's even Hellister anymore," Larghetto said. He opened his eyes and sat up. "I'll find him, though. I won't do anything else until I do."
