Endgame: In This Last of Meeting Places

Characters: Aria, Zo, open
Setting: floor 001 for now
Format: action brackets
Summary: Aria and Zo reappear quite suddenly.
Warnings: standard animus event warnings

Aria and Zo tumble out of the elevator more than they step out of it. They look worse for wear; Zo's covered in minor scrapes and bruises, and Aria'a left arm hangs at her side uselessly, bloody and mangled. As soon as they're on solid ground, Zo turns and forces the elevator doors shut without touching them, leaving the broken car lodged in place behind it, and Aria slides to the floor, gasping for breath. They're both on high alert even for all their exhaustion.

SPEAK TO ARIA
SPEAK TO ZO
ESCAPE

...What happened?

[Waver had really hoped to just have a little more time for the Tower to be calm, but no such luck.]

Do you...need me to try healing? I might be able to pull that off. [Aria looked too tired to speak, so he asked Zo first.]
animusnpcs: (Zo)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2014-05-25 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
Can you? [Zo seems to be less injured than Aria, at least. He has enough energy left to perk up obviously when Waver makes the suggestion of healing.] Aria got hurt pretty bad.

[While there was better food elsewhere in the Tower, stored up, Xion wasn't sure how much more it'd last, and thus supplementing meals with at least one of nutrition bars a day was something Xion felt she should do. It also generally made a good meeting place, for those whom she didn't know their routine or how to find.

She didn't expect to see who arrived, however. Xion shoots an anxious look between Zo and Aria, wanting to speak to them both but not sure who to approach first. In the end, she trusted that others - like Zelda - would be able to see to Aria better than she could, for now.

She approaches Zo, eyes wide]


Are you- [No, nevermind, dumb question] What happened?
animusnpcs: (Zo)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2014-05-25 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
A bunch of retrieval units and monsters and stuff! [Zo's expression is wide-eyed and tired, but still energetic enough for an explanation.]

[Saber had suggested they talk to Aria or Zo as soon as they could after resting from the last events. This is not how Diarmuid expected to be doing it.

He moves to them, obviously torn between helping Aria and talking to Zo who might be able to better explain what is going on.]

Who did this to you two? Are they following?
animusnpcs: (Zo)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2014-05-25 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
[Zo looks back at the elevator, now shut, when he asks about being followed.]

I dunno. Maybe. We should keep going, but, um-- [Aria is tired and Zo obviously wants her to take a break.]

[This isn't exactly the right time for this, considering he needs help, but while she slowly approaches him, she still greets him.]

You are Zo? This maybe the first time we've met in person, but I have heard much about you.

Do you need anything?
animusnpcs: (Zo)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2014-05-25 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. Hi, Vietnam. [He smiles even in the situation he's found himself in.] I'm okay. Aria's hurt. We were running.

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2014-05-25 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
Everyone helped stop the blood. [Aria's arm is still a bit worse for wear in other ways, though.] Retrieval units came for me.

[He didn't spare Aria or any of the others a glance. Having opted instead to wait, watch and listen. Once he was satisfied with what he had heard, he turned to Zo.]

You should really go and rest for the moment.

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2014-05-25 02:18 pm (UTC)(link)

Zo! [Romeo doesn't bother with questions like what happened or how Zo is hurt, he knows the others will ask that, and he knows they will help, they have magic and healing. Romeo doesn't have any of those but he rushes up to Zo and wraps his arms around him, mindful of his injuries but uncaring about getting blood on himself.] It will be okay Zo, you're here now and everyone will make sure no one can hurt you!

Any idea what's going on, kid?

[Although, getting a closer look, the kid was pretty worse for wear.]

Anything you need?
