Song playing throughout the RP in the background: Someday Came Today – Chris Pine
Kirk needed somewhere to be: and it sure as hell wasn’t within the RSI. There were definite marks to his PTSD that were gradually becoming noticeable with every passing day? Perhaps, even: every passing hour? He’d flipped out on Maks, for a very good cause. But in the end, HE was hurting more on the inside, as a result. So? He teleported to the only available place away from everyone else. Level Zero. Space. Hurt. Time. If only one woman could follow him? He’d feel whole again…..
And that one woman would find her way here. She had teleported away from Hellifyno with the use of her portal coin. Danvers hadn’t chased him, allowing him his space. Once she spotted him, she observed him for a moment. ”I had a feeling you would be here.” Since it was a good place to meet and so forth.
Kirk is already closing that distance to meet up with Danvers, so that when he greets her! It’s a total hug, wrapping most of his form around her, with his tormented features near her shoulder and, that hug…..
Aww! A total hug ensued. Well needed by both, most likely. Especially him. A hug she embraced fully. Her arms wrapped around him, as her form was pressed against his, allowing him to let it all out if he had to. ”It’s okay.” Her tone was quiet and for his ears only. ”I’m here for you.” Seeing him like this was painful, yet she knew he was a sensitive guy. Which was absolutely no problem at all.
He was still a psychotic mess, after what the Sith had done to him, during his short incarceration at their base. Hearing it being retold by Danvers was yet another psychological blow to his system. He could only imagine the toll that she’d taken, while all of that went down. “Damaged” Kirk voices, “…We’re both damaged…” He says, while taking her free hand and simply holding it within each of his own. “….And I only want what’s best for you….For Us”
He wasn’t wrong. They were both damaged. Not only due to recent events but things that happened months back. They would to a 100% be diagnosed with PTSD. Yet there had never been time to focus on getting better. So it was there. Always there. Both of them had taken heavy tolls. Emotional and physical ones. A slow nod was given to him with his words. ”We’re both damaged.” She repeated, not denying that. Yet he made her feel so whole at the same time. With her hand held within each of his, she placed her other free hand upon his. ”Atleast neither of us are alone.” In feeling damage. His word after that got to her. Somethint they wanted. So much. ”Me too. I want it all. With you.” Everything. ”What is best for us… making you happy… I want us to be happy.”
“When are we going to get there, Danvers?” Kirk asks, “…We’re stumbling from one catastrophe to the next and expected to come out alive each time” Sniffs. “…I also found out about another planet controlled by the Siths” He says, “…Through Silvia….” Nods, but with a sad smile, “…And I’m sure that we’ll have another faction to deal with it and it’ll spin right on out of control. There will be no let-up” Not this time. “So we got to take what happiness that we can get along the way” Kirk replies, “….For the long haul”
A very good question. Something that was often on her mind. How to get there? Well, he did answer it somewhat. ”I guess we just gotta push through and fight. I want to have a future with you. And I know we have one in store for us.” Whatever it might look like. Yet she fought for that. For him. No let-ups for this couple. ”Seems like that’s all that happens to us. One enemy after another.” A sad smile of her own. But he was right – they had to take what they could get along the way. ”We have to cheerish the moments we have until we can make it all even greater.”
“I’ve also been thinking about…Us and …things” Kirk reminds her, “…And…..other things….that deal with…our things”
Danvers noticed the nervousness. If that was what she noticed. Either way, a smile was forming for some reason. ”Have you now?” Once more wrapping her arms around his waist. ”Us and things. I wonder what those could be.” Yep. She was so wanting to know. ”Are you going to share these… things? Since there is us here?”
“Maybe, if you could? If you want to? It’s been on my mind?” Mr. Stumble with his words, “…Our things….Your things….Other things…Turn into new things…but still remain our things”
Danvers had a feeling here. Yet she wasn’t 100% sure. He was stumbling, which was so cute. ”I could and I want to.” Since that explains everything. She had things on her mind as well. For a while. About them. Separate things being more united. Being theirs. ”You want my things to be yours, I want yours to be mine yet individually ours?” He was stumbling and she was… yep. She was too. Kind of.
“Your things. My things, Our things. Turn into new things” He appeared to be in a certain posture, “…And then time goes by and we get things with our things” Looking up to Danvers, “….And then…..Those things will always be our things…..”
He did! He so did! The certain posture said it all. Even the stumbling was a hint. Yep. This woman was smiling like never before. Gosh he was the sweetest and bestest ever. Honestly she was… speechless. Happiness overload. ”Your things plus my things will be our things.” Nodding. Very much so. ”New things. In time. They’ll always be our things.” Danvers looked at him as he looked up at her. Hazel eyes meeting his blue. ”I want that. Very much. More than anything.”
Certain posture, remained certain. “And since we want our things, to be…our things. Then our things need to be our things” Made so much sense, though he appears to be gaining brain control again, “So I uh……I have” Mr. Stumble, “I got……It was from far away” Reaching into his pocket, and he showed off a certain circular thing, (Engagement ring). The Crystal is Black, within the in-set of the ring and are most valuable for light saber creations. As if he was waiting to be allowed to stumble in his words some more, “…This thing…Is your thing…but it’s our thing…….and it slips on another thing….and that thing, within the thing…..will help you in case……of other things.” Lord Help Him….
Awww! He was just so… perfect. The stumbling made it so genuine and filled with emotion. Danvers was infront of him, standing. While he was in his posture still. ”No argument there.” In regards to their things being their things. He… got… wow! He even got a circular thing. Stumbling and her being overwhelmed with happiness. Danvers observed the circular thing for a while. ‘This is… it’s… it’s beautiful, James.” These were valuable components for a lightsaber. Indeed they were. ”Our thing will be treasured. Forever.” Another smile to him. He was allowed to stumble more. She was just really, really happy.
“Will you….take my things and I’ll take your things…so that we can be together things, for ….forever things?” Lord Help Him. “….Things..for the future….Our things….Merry Things….Those things…..to combine things…..Our things? To have things and to” Finally getting his resolve, “…To Merge Things……Will you……merge with me?”
Nodding with almost every and each word from the wonderful man right infront of her. Her heart was beating so fast. Like never before. Almost like that one time. On the Valkyrie. When their eyes met. Yet this was even stronger. Same emotion but ten times that. ”I’ll take your things and you’ll take mine so that they can be our things. Forever.” On that they agreed. So many things. ”Merge and merry things. With you.” Mmhmm. Definitely. ”I’d love to merge with you. Which is a big YES. I want this. With you. Merge.” She had said yes to this. Gosh was she happy!
Lifts her up, up! Standing up! Grinning UP! Swinging her around UP! UP! Smile broadened UP! Everything UP, UP!! “…Then this is our life Danvers” Suddenly so damn smooth, eyes locked upon his prize UP, “…Ours. Yours. Mine” Still spinning her around, “…Long Road. Tough Road. Our Road. No one else’s Road…..But Our Road” Till her back may have gently hit that wall, his grin remains, while his blue eyes twinkled, “…That whole time that I was in that base” His cheeks red, “….I kept thinking about how I was ever going to get back to You…..Alive. In one piece. As I am now……”
Whoop! She was lifted up! Not that she minded, of course. It was a sudden and unexpected move. But how could she deny him that? He was smiling and happy. As was she. Both of them were happy. Overjoyed, even. This feeling was one she couldn’t put into words. Just… so amazing. Perfect. He was perfect. Eyes locked into his as he watched her, while still being carried and swung around. ”This is our life. Just ours. And we’ll pull through. Like we always do. On our road.” One they had started their trek on once they got together. One they would continue to walk on. Now more united than ever.
Then her back hit the wall, with him close to her. Just like that one time. On the Bridge of the Valkyrie. So sweet. She used one of her free hands to caress his cheek. ”I knew you’d find a way back to me. You always do.” Yep. She was smiling too. ”My faith in you never faltered.” It never did. ”I just knew.”
Maybe, anything can happen here? Maybe even the actor was singing on a soundtrack, somewhere? Or maybe it was live? However, (Music): Kirk remained grinning and got her a lot more comfortable….
No matter which, she was very comfortable*. Though she had a feeling Kirk knew how to sing, so wasn’t impossible it was him? Very happy, content and comfortable. What else could she ask for? His grin was one that resulted in a smile of her own. ”If only you knew how happy you make me.” He probably knew how happy she was. Still… she would show how happy she was. Every day.
Although it was a mix of worlds going on. The environment got red, much like the area around them. Red. Heat. Smile. “And I do love you” Kirk cemented, even with this as well, (Steve Trevor quote), which belonged to (another character, but it sooo fits):, “I just wish that we had more time” Why? Well? Every-day was a call to another villain, and uncertain steps ahead….
Danvers smiled once more with those words. I love you. They both said it and definitely felt it. ”Now and forever.” A promise made. Not only today but before then. The quote that was not their still rang true. ”As do I.” Due to each and every day being a new enemy, more trouble. ”One day we’ll have time. For us.” She was certain of it. ”Until then, we’ll make the best out of moments like these.”
Kirk doesn’t want to think about the sacrifices that were ahead of them. And if that meant doing the same as another before him? Then: So be it, to protect Danvers. So be all of it. “Now and Always. Always and for…..” Kirk grinned, because, well? “…Corn” There it was….
The same went for her. She would do everything to protect him. Her guy. Now and always. Much like they had said. He paused and grinned, which meant he was upto something. There was there word. Which resulted in a smile of hers. ”Corn.” So powerful and just spot on. Their word. ”Always corn.”
Captain James T. Kirk
“Corn in the sunset” As if he was preparing her for the worst, “Corn in the night” Was it a song? “Corn by your bedside” Cheeky grin, “And Corn on your table” Winks. “…Corn when it’s cold out-side and corn when it’s warm” Another pause, “…..Corn is always together…Even when it’s apart” Their mantra…
Oh this was real good. Yeah, she was impressed by this song. Or mantra. Either. ”Wow! Now you’re impressing me big time.” Corn in the sunset, night, by their bedside, on their table and when it was cold or warm outside. ”Just how we want it. All the corn.” Indeed. Then there was the mantra. Apart is Together. Together is Apart.
“I want to show you off” Since she’s still in his arms, where do you think that they’ll dare to go? They gone: due to teleportation….
