How to Unlock a Steel Heart

Post by Cedahlia on Thu Apr 13, 2017 4:44 pm

Hikari was swimming around the motel pool. Her and Drake had stayed here for maybe three weeks. Working a case, but it proved to be far too difficult.

She was only 14, but had you mentioned that to her she would protest that it was only for a few more months.

Hikari was a very mature girl as well, having been raised by her older adoptive brother, but she had to pick up the slack and not be such a kid.

Right now, she was being a big child though. She was in her mermaid form as Palkia's chosen, swimming with around twenty small adorable water fiends.

She was pretending to be Ariel and her hair was definitely the right shade of red. She loved that she could breathe under water and play with all the fiends properly.

"Hey, pretty princess." the sound of her brother voice reached her ears, muffled by the water. She popped up excitedly and then sort of looked confused.

Drake looked older than he was. Sadder too. But not so much she didn't trust him. "Hey." She said.

"So, Um. I guess this is a little weird, but I have to tell you something really important. I have a special hunt, just for you." Drake said and smiled at her.

"Oh?" Hikari said and her eyes lit up. She loved that he was giving her a job. He never did that. He tried to protect her too much.

"Yeah, come here." Drake said and pat the side of the pool and Hikari happily obliged.

~~~

Hikari had talked with Drake for a long time. About so many different things. He'd warned her of things to come and told her she couldn't tell him, current time Drake.

Probably worried he'd mess it up. But that was okay. She'd be the glue thst held everything together for him, or that is what he had asked.

Right now she was dressed in easy to move in gear. Her hair was in a messy bun. She was stood outside an unfamiliar house, in a neighbourhood she didn't know.

That didn't scare her though. Neither did the psychopath that lived inside. What scared her was who she was saving and what would happen if she didn't manage it. Who would be heartbroken, was Palkia. The God who had chosen her to be her princess. This was like a test of if she had picked the right person for the job.

She closed her eyes and moved herself to the basement below the house. She stayed in the shadows.

She did not like what she could see.

She did not like what she could smell.

She did not like what she could hear.

~~~

Hikari was covered in blood, her hands. Her face. Her clothes. But she had managed to get Cameron out. Son of Palkia. She was in the closest motel with him. She had paused the man's life who had done this to him, after fighting tooth and nail for her life as well Cam's.

But she had given him to Palkia, whatever she would do, would be his punishment.

Now she was rewinding time on his wounds. Fixing with a mixture of time and water, he was made of it after all.

Once she did that, she sat down. Her whole body shaking violently.

She sobbed.

~~~

A day had passed and Cameron hadn't yet woken. But thst might have been because she hadn't been able to heal him fully. But she needed to feed him.

She was clean and tidy again. Which made her feel a lot better. She had a bowl of chicken broth, hoping the smell would wake him.

Cameron smelled the chicken broth and it brought him back to consciousness. He was slow to wake though he wanted to open his eyes quickly. He could smell he was somewhere different. But he wasn't home, nor was he in water. His body felt weak but it didn't hurt nearly as bad as it had before.

Cameron opened his eyes. He blinked against the lights. He'd been kept in the dark for so long. Immediately he searched for his tormentor but there was no sign of him. Just a young girl.

"Here, let me help you sit up." Hikari said, putting the bowl down on the bedside cabinet. She was gentle as she lifted Cam. Though he was heavy, she was strong. She propped him up with pillows. "Are you thirsty too?"

Cameron flinched when she touched him. It didn't matter that the touch was gentle. He watched her carefully with no intention of looking away. "Who are you?" He asked instead. His voice was not strong. It was hoarse from all the screams.

Hikari didn't pay attention to his flinching, she felt to bring attention to it would only make it worse. "I am Hikari, Princess of water. Your mother's chosen." She explained, she felt slightly uncomfortable being stared at so intensely by Cam. He was incredibly gorgeous. But she tried to not show it. "Water?" She prodded again, holding a cup and a straw out to him.

"Mother's chosen..." Cameron repeated, as if fighting to focus on her words and connect them with a memory. He ignored the offered water. It was as important as figuring out what was going on. He couldn't focus on that until he knew that he was safe. "You're...one of ours?" He asked, as if uncertain of the information that was slowly coming to mind. One of ours, a hunter.

"Yes." Hikari said, "I promise you're safe. That guy... He's not going to come back here to get you or anything. I made sure of that."

The flood of relief that Cameron experienced upon hearing that and knowing it to be true made it difficult for him to control his emotions for a moment. He bent forward, his shaking hands covering his face as his body shook with soundless sobs.

"I'm sorry," Hikari said, putting everything down. "Do you need a hug?" She asked, gingerly and put a gentle hand on his shoulder. It was enough that if he wanted to be held, he could be.

Cameron shook his head. Even knowing she was a friend, he did not want to be touched. Not yet. He lifted his head and wiped at his wet cheeks. "I'm sorry," he said quietly.

"No, don't be sorry. It's totally understandable. I get it." Hikari said, she'd seen what that horrible man had done. She moved her hand away. "Okay, so... How about... If you want a hug, come get one? I won't touch you again until you're ready for it." She suggested.

"I can do that," Cameron said. He straightened up and took control of his emotions. He finally noticed they were in a hotel room. Or motel. He didn't know the difference. But that made sense. Hunters pretty much lived in them.

"Let me help you eat and drink. You really need it," Hikari said and got herself comfortable beside him on the bed. She held out the cup of cold water and the straw. "Your mum will murder me if after all that, you die of malnutrition and dehydration."

Cameron looked at the broth. He didn't have the stomach for anything solid. But he could likely handle the broth. "Okay," he acquiesced.

Hikari popped the straw closer to his mouth. "Drink a bit, eat a bit, drink again." She said, because the broth was likely going to be salty. "I'm actually surprised we haven't talked before. Just because I love your mum, I've spent a lot of time with her. Training and such."

"My sister and I do our own thing a lot of the time," Cameron said. "I have heard of you." She was younger than he expected.

"Hm, only good things I hope." Hikari grinned, but you just didn't know. She helped Cameron to eat.

"I don't remember much about it at the moment," Cameron admitted. "I don't think she said anything bad about you though..." He wasn't sure his mother would mention that sort of thing.

"Hm well that's good. Maybe you also heard me asking for help sometimes. My brother doesn't really go for it, but I often... I guess, pray to you and your sister to make sure our missions go well." Hikari said, which might be a little weird for him if that had come off as fan girlie, but she wasn't. She just respected where it was due.

"Yes, I remember your prayers," Cameron said. "It's why we're here. To help you hunters in what ways we can if you're worthy and deserving of our assistance."

"Well very rarely do our missions go wrong, or badly. So I'll take that as a compliment." Hikari smiled. She was trying to take his mind off of the bad with a lot of normal.

"We've helped you and your brother before," Cameron said. He was taking slow sips of the water and broth.  It wasn't just because of their worth that he'd helped though. They were important to the future of the world. His mother had said so.

"I did notice, sometimes I just knew we shouldn't have survived. I'm flattered you help so much. But I guess it's because we are chosen," Hikari said, she didn't think it was more than that. And future Drake had explained a lot of things. Many things.

"That's a big part of it," Cameron said. "You wouldn't be chosen if you were unworthy so you automatically receive more help from us for that."

"Plus your mother wouldn't pick someone unworthy and I guess your uncle wouldn't either." Hikari shrugged a bit and got herself a can of soda as she continued to feed him. "I don't think I'm all that special but I can't argue there has to be something to have been blessed by dialga and Palkia."
