    live a little :: evan

    Post by Tinley Ryan on Sat Oct 11, 2014 12:40 pm

    For some reason Evan wouldn't tell Tinley where he lived (something about his parents being really uptight and strict, or something) so whenever they hung out she had to meet him at the giant fountain in the middle of Lilycove. So that's where she was today, sitting on the smooth marble of the fountain, looking in at the clear, bubbling water. The bottom of the fountain was littered with coins, wishes thrown in by the rich kids that populated the city.

    As she waited for Evan, she wondered what she would wish for if she had some coins. She also wondered what a little rich kid would wish for. More coins for more wishes?

    Today, she thought, she would have wished that Evan would agree to do something more fun than walk around the park or all the other boring things he always wanted to do. She wanted desperately to go to Lineus, just to fool around and scare herself. It definitely wasn't the kind of place that Evan went, so she would usually go with the guys back from the orphanage, but for some reason she just really wanted Evan to come with her. He'd become sort of a stand-in Ronan, someone that she wanted to do everything with, even though he didn't always want to do what she wanted to do.

    Lately, Evan had been meeting up with Tinley to hang out in quasi-secret. He knew his parents would never approve of him hanging out with her, and gods forbid Katina find out he was spending time alone with a girl. She could be awfully possessive for someone who hated him so much. Or maybe she was just worried about the scandal of it.

    He saw her from a distance, sitting by the fountain as usual. She was pretty distinctive, at least as far as Lilycove residents went. She had a more unique style, not just dressed in the name brands like everyone else. He liked it.

    "Hey," he greeted, walking up. He noticed how she was staring into the water. Jokingly, he asked, "Want to make a wish?"

    Tinley turned to Evan. "Took you long enough," she joked when he walked up next to her. She hadn't been waiting that long, actually, but she liked giving him a hard time.

    Evan wrote:Want to make a wish?

    "Not sure wishes are for little poor girls like me, but if you have a coin I wouldn't mind," she said with a smile to show she was still joking. Whatever she said, she really was itching to throw one into the fountain. Even if just to see if it actually worked.

    "Oh, I think I might have something," Evan said, digging through his pockets. He didn't usually carry cash, just checks, but occasionally he had some loose change around just in case. Sure enough, he found a dollar coin in his wallet. "Here's one. Go ahead and make a wish, little poor girl." He flipped it into the air at her.

    She smiled and caught it easily. She looked down at the coin; a whole dollar just to be thrown away into the fountain. It seemed wasteful, but Tinley wasn't exactly the sort of clio to feel a lot of regret so she didn't waste too much thought on it. She squeezed her hand closed and shut her eyes just as tightly.

    I wish Evan wouldn't be such a lame today, she thought. Her eyes sprung open and she tossed the coin high above her head. It sailed easily through the air and landed into the fountain with an unceremonious plop! It sank slowly to the bottom and rested along all the other coins. Huh. Was that all there was? That was it, her wish was made? For some reason it seemed less magical than she had imagined.

    "One more thing off the bucket list," she said, turning back to Evan. Her first wish, spent on him. It better work. "Do these wishes usually come true?"

    Evan laughed a little bit. "The fountain doesn't actually grant wishes if that's what you mean. It's just a fun little thing clio do," he said. Some clio probably did believe in the fountain, but Evan wasn't the superstitious type. "Maybe we could still make it happen though. What did you wish for?"

    Tinley shrugged. "I heard they definitely don't come true if you tell what they are," she told him. She put her butt up against the fountain and then pulled herself up so she could sit on the ledge. She'd need that wish on her side if she wanted Evan to even consider her plan.

    "So, what did you want to do today?" she asked, ready to turn down whatever he suggested and then suggest going to Linius like she really wanted.

    Evan shrugged. "I didn't have anything planned," he said. Tinley wasn't usually too thrilled with his ideas anyway. He'd probably be more open to her ideas, except for the fact that she always just wanted to cause trouble. "Maybe get out of the city at least, I'm a little sick of this place to be honest." He was always sick of Lilycove.

    "Out of the city?" she asked, perking up. Maybe this would be easier than she had thought. "I had the same thought! I was walking here today and I thought to myself, 'Tinley, you love the woods, and you haven't been to the woods in an awfully long time.' So I thought back, 'You know, Tinley, you're right. You should probably go there soon.' So the fact that you want to get out of Lilycove makes me think well, jeeze, I was right! I should go there soon. We should, I mean. Like, today, maybe."

    She smiled at him from her perch. "Whaddya think?"

    "You know Tinley, I've heard that talking to yourself is a sign of insanity," Evan replied lightheartedly after listening to her little spiel. "Another sign of insanity might be wanting to wander around in Linius." He could easily assume she was talking about the Forest of Linius and not the Woods of Happy. For one thing the Woods were dozens and dozens of miles away, not to mention this was Tinley he was talking about. She'd always choose the more exciting (aka dangerous) option. "Haven't you heard the stories of what goes on in there?"

    He still kept a lighthearted tone as he asked her, but in reality the Forest did make him a tiny bit nervous. There were tons of stories about the creepy things that went on in the Forest, and while Evan was sure many of them weren't true, he couldn't help but wonder if at least some of them were.

    "Well I have to talk to myself sometimes, Evan," Tinley said. "Like whenever I need expert advice." She hopped off the ledge. "And of course I've heard the stories of what goes on there. That's exactly why I want to go!"

    Tinley was actually a giant scardy-cat, but she loved the adrenaline rush that came with being scared. Walking around in the dark undergrowth of the forest was sure to be exciting. And who knows what they would find there! Whenever Tinley went it seemed like an entirely new place.

    "You know how when you read a horror story, and the main character does something really stupid that gets them killed?" Evan asked, still lighthearted. "And you think, 'Now why would they do that? Everyone knows not to go into the creepy derelict house at night. Of course they're going to get killed.' That would be us, going into the Forest."

    Of course they'd be going during the day, not to mention this was real life and not a horror story. The chances of something actually happening were probably (hopefully?) pretty low.

    "Well someone always lives," Tinley said. "And I'd guess that that clio would be me, so I'm willing to take the chance." She actually hadn't read any books, like ever, but she'd heard plenty of scary stories to know the basic plot formula.

    "Come on, live a little," she challenged, narrowing her eyes and smiling.

    "Actually the cocky, overconfident character usually dies," Evan pointed out. "It's the pure, innocent one that lives. Are you pure and innocent?" Tinley was like the least innocent clio he knew. She was always getting into trouble.

    He raised his eyebrows at her challenge. "Live a little?" he repeated incredulously. "You know, just because I'm not always causing trouble like you, doesn't mean I don't live."

    "Of course I'm pure and innocent," Tinley said, laughing at herself. "Just look at me!" She looked down for a minute at her outfit. It had been a school day, where the nuns at the orphanage made them dress in traditional school gear (aka skirt and sweater), and Tinley hadn't bothered to change when she'd skipped the last hour or so and snuck off to meet with Evan. She looked sorta pure and innocent. More pure and innocent than normal, anyway.

    "Oh, you live do you?" Tinley asked. "Your idea of fun is strolling around a little park or going for coffee. Tell me how that is living." Living was excitement and danger and trying new things.

    "What's wrong with coffee?" Evan asked, a little defensively. Sure it wasn't super exciting, but he'd always enjoyed hanging out with Tinley at Cat Cafe. Did she really find him that boring? "You want to go to the Forest? Fine. I bet it won't be any more exciting than the park."

    "Nothing's wrong with coffee, s'long as you only do that every once in awhile. Don't you ever just want to get out and, I dunno, do something?" She had no idea how Evan was so content just living in Lilycove, doing nothing at all. "Don't the same things get boring after awhile?"

    Evanbutt wrote:You want to go to the Forest? Fine. I bet it won't be any more exciting than the park.

    Instantly, Tinley's eyes brightened. "We can go?" she asked. Despite her wish-making coin toss, she'd been sure he'd refuse her idea and offer something more "safe". "Are you kidding? The forest is way more fun than the park. For one thing, it's gigantic. For another, there aren't stuffy clio walking around like they're entitled to the world." The park in Lilycove was a place for clio to stroll around enjoying "nature". It made Tinley feel uncomfortable to be there, even when she was with Evan.

    Tinley wrote:"For another, there aren't stuffy clio walking around like they're entitled to the world."

    "Yeah, just wild animals and probably a bunch of ticks," Evan pointed out, hoping to freak Tinley out a little bit. He looked at her attire, his eyes stopping at her long, bare legs for a moment before he snapped out of it. Despite their clashing personalities, he'd always found Tinley very attractive. Too bad he already had a terrible girlfriend who he fought with all the time (although unlike Katina, at least Tinley was fun to be around). "You probably shoulda worn pants. Oh well, let's go!" He gestured for her to follow him.

    "I got a tick on me once before," Tinley commented, "it was pretty cool." One of the Earalas nuns had burnt it off of her. It hurt but it was pretty sweet.

    Evan started walking off without her, and Tinley got one of those happy feelings in her stomach. Her wish had worked! "Wait for me ya little butt head," she said to him.

    The two clio walked the few miles it took to get to the forest, Tinley chattering happily the entire way. She couldn't believe Evan was actually going with her to the woods. It was gonna be awesome! She couldn't wait to walk around in the darkness with all the creepy noises and shadows.

    Evan couldn't believe that Tinley hadn't even been phased by having a goddamned tick on her. She thought it was cool. If Katina ever got a tick on her, she would probably faint. Hell, if Evan himself ever got a tick, he would probably freak out too! Tinley was so odd.

    They got to the edge of the Forest of Linius. Evan paused, but Tinley plowed right on ahead so he half-reluctantly followed her. Despite it being the middle of the day, the forest was in a perpetual state of dusk. The trees were so thick that barely any light could get through. Unlike the Woods of Happy, there weren't any trails either. Evan used his eilemaiden to clear a path in front of him.

    "Do you have any idea how to navigate this place?" he asked Tinley, who was somehow climbing over old branches and thorn bushes in a skirt. "I don't want to get lost."

    "Oh, sure," Tinley said, completely brushing him off with a lie. This place was crazy, how could she know her way around. Besides, that was part of the fun! Not that she would tell Evan that.

    "Whoops!" Tinley exclaimed  as she slid off a fallen tree trunk she'd been climbing over. She landed with a soft thump on the ground, falling into her butt.  She stood up and brushed her legs off, looking at her skirt. There was a tear on the side. "Sister Agatha is gonna kill me," she said with a frown. "Oh well."

    "Listen!" Tinley said suddenly, forgetting her ruined uniform and pointing in the distance. "A waterfall!" There was a river she knew ran through Linius, but she'd never followed it far enough to see a waterfall.

    "You liar," Evan accused, watching Tinley clamber around the foliage. He could tell just by watching her that she had no idea where she was going. He followed after her nonetheless, having a much easier time due to the fact that he was Nadar.

    She cut him off with a cry of "Listen!" He could hear rushing water in the distance. "You wanna check it out?" he asked, already knowing the answer.

    "Duhhhh!" Tinley said. Honestly, did he have to ask? She took the time to notice that Evan was easily moving all the bushes and thorns away and frowned at him. "You're a little cheater, ya know?" she asked him, scrambling her way through some tangled underbrush. "What's the fun in having a path?"

    Finally they reached the garbling waterfall. Tinley walked right to the edge and looked over the sheer cliff. "Holy amazeballs," she gasped, looking at the 50ft drop. The rushing water roared in her ears. "This is awesome!" she shouted, looking back to Evan.

    "The fun is not falling over and getting all scratched up," Evan replied, manipulating a large vine that Tinley hadn't noticed but was about to trip over out of her way. Of course she didn't notice to thank him. Sigh. He followed her to the waterfall, which turned out to be a huge, roaring thing, even larger and more impressive than Tamar Falls.

    "This is insane," he said, walking up beside her and following her gaze over the edge.

    Tinley had never been to Tamar Falls, so this was the first waterfall that she had ever seen in real life. And it was amazing. "I have never seen anything so incredible," Tinley said, her voice full of awe. It was so crazy how the water rushed over the edge and tumbled down the drop, crashing into a foamy mess at the bottom. Tinley usually didn't stop to think about things in an aesthetic way, but she couldn't help noticing how beautiful this was.

    "Look!" Tinley cried, pointing out a rainbow shimmering through the mist. Because the river was so wide it had created a gap in the dense trees, which had allowed enough light to catch the water just so.
