This One's Not So Stiff… (Private RP)

Post by Mortimer on Mon Aug 05, 2013 4:24 am

First topic message reminder :

Marrow was hungry. Looking around her tree she found no scraps of anything edible. Any tidbits of food that she had squirrelled away were now gone, and so it was time to forage. She grabbed her bone and set out into the forest, determined to find food.

Marrow started wandering the woods but finding only twigs and turds to gnaw on, she pressed on. She wandered on for several more minutes until she came upon a rotting, fermenting pumpkin. Unaffected by its smell or appearance, she smashed a hole in the side with her bone and immediately started to feast, as at this point she was feeling a little weak from hunger. She pulled herself half way in, smushing pumpkin into her cheeks as she went. As she ate, Marrow was overcome with a strange wooziness and was slowly succumbing to the alcohol that had fermented inside the fruit. She kept eating until she passed out, blackout-drunk.

About that time, a Dreg named Mortimer was walking through the forest. The morgue he worked for was running low on funds, so he was commissioned to look for some fresh cadavers to sell off to necromancers. Equipped with heavy leather surgical gloves and some body-bags, he was having little luck. The whole forest seemed to be booming with life, and this made Morty sad.

After wandering for a ways, the dark ginger Dreg squirrel finally came across something of interest.  He saw Marrow, sticking like a cork out of the side of a rotting pumpkin, only her hips down visible. He set down his bags and rapped on the gourd to see if there was a response. There was none. He referred briefly to his enchanted pocket watch. It was stopped at 4:20, like it had been for the past month. This was precisely how long it had been since it last ticked, signifying that the damned were nearby. Looking over the scene, he decided she must have choked to death a week ago, given the decay of the pumpkin and, seemingly, her too. He lamented, "awwwww, poor……… girl." He pulled her body out and layed it down on a body-bag. "What a shame, you were a cute one too…" He briefly checked her over, then closed the bag up. Noticing the massive femur that was lying near the pumpkin, he grabbed that too, admiring how well preserved it was. One body had to do for him, as it was getting dark. Mortimer made his way back to the village, and the morgue, to stash this find.

Soon after his return, Mortimer moved Marrow from her body bag to the operating table, to prepare her for sale. As he turned to the counter to prepare his instruments, she began to stir…

"Okay..." She stepped forward. She didn't really understand the gesture he was making. She raised her arms in a similar manner, and tilted her head. At that, she felt the impulse to grab him and hug him. She didn't understand it as a hug, but she stepped forward once more and hugged him tight, not wanting to see him go. She rested her head over his shoulder and her eyes were a little watery. She didn't know for sure if she'd really ever see him again, since she isn't familiar with socializing over time, and wasn't sure if he'd even remember her.

Mort hugged her back, rubbing his face against hers. "and again. If you ever feel like hanging out with me, you can come over and visit me anytime. I'm always at my home or at the morgue depending on if anyone dies." He lingered there for a long time still hugging her close, with his elbow on her back and rubbing her neck.

"Okay then..." She continued hugging as long as he would let him.

After some time of holding her, he began to let go. "Here, this amulet is yours." He waited for her to pull away before he slid it over his head and held it up for her to take. "Make sure to keep it safe. that kind of enchanted item is quite rare and looks to be extremely valuable."

Marrow took it and put it on the table, then turned to face him. "I'll try..."

"goodbye Marrow, I'll see you again soon." He said as as he slowly made his way to the entrance of her home. Smiling, he turned and waved at her before climbing down to the ground. He could see that the feral squirrel had woken up and left. Mort made his way home, this time running on all fours. He had decided to get back into shape, so he could keep up with his new confidante.
