The past month- Months?- Had been strange. One night he'd found himself compelled to go out, as though something was calling to him. A silent siren song that had coaxed him into his car  and out into the country.

Where had he gone? What had he done?

Those were the questions he had to ask himself when he woke up in the middle of Hyde park in a rumpled suit and a brand new body. ...Possibly brand new. Certainly new to him in that moment, since he couldn't recall much of anything from the past few weeks. His head was pounding, and he was in agony. 

A large bird sat upon him. A hawk, he thought absently- Or maybe not. He couldn't seem to focus on it. Not when his gaze was so strongly drawn to all the blood. ...His blood.

"No," he said softly, trying to chase it away with a weak wave of his hand. "I'm free, you can't- He can't," he insisted, right before the world went dark. ...Not that it mattered. It would heal, he would heal. He always did. How else could the punishment continue?

Robin didn't exactly spend a lot of time wandering around Hyde Park. But he was coming out of a bar just on the edge, and a freaking giant bird flew past him into the park. And there was something about it that set him on edge that he couldn't quite pinpoint.

His gaze followed the bird, and he saw it land... on a body. Was that a dead body? Was a hawk picking at a dead body in the middle of a damn park?

He didn't run, but he did head over to investigate... right in time to see the body's head lift. And then fall. So not dead then.

"Hey, get the fuck out of here," he yelled at the bird, and waved his arms.

The bird made him think of Prometheus, especially when... oh god, had the bird actually been pulling something out of the guy? How was he still alive?

Robin dropped to his knees beside him, pulling out his phone. "I'm getting an ambulance," he said hurriedly.

But.

Wait.

"... Prometheus?"

Robin swore, loudly and adamantly, in Greek.

And then - "What the fuck, Prometheus? What was that? And what... what's going on with you? Are you okay?" He knew he'd be healing already so he wasn't that worried about him, but... well, that wasn't normal. And where had he been? And he had yet another face? At least Robin had gotten quicker at (somehow) recognizing him now.

"If I had any pride I'd probably just leave you here," Robin muttered. He really had been wounded when Prometheus had been cold to him when he'd returned to London, and then disappeared so quickly, not even making it to New Years at the club.

But, apparently his pride was in short supply. He offered him a hand to help him up.

"Discede."

The word was softly spoken, but precise. Felix approached the injured man in the park with care, and curiosity, and cautious steps. A spell to send away animals was simple enough for him to cast, though he wove a strengthening thread through the magic, just in case this was not quite a normal animal. He didn't think it was. Wild birds did not make a habit of calmly biting human beings, but he sensed no magic in the scene before him.

That didn't always mean anything. There were powers older than magic.

Felix crouched down beside the man, trying to avoid getting blood on his shoes or the hem of his overcoat. "Wake up," he called quietly. "You're hurt, and we have to get you seen to."

Barely one person in a thousand recognized the Cabaline tattoos, which caught Felix off guard. Those words rang faintly familiar to him, but he could not place them. Yet he was somehow reminded of his conversations with Eric, and the kind of cadence a voice took on when it was very, very old.

He found he did not dare look away from the man's eyes, as if he were holding something vital in his lace, and to look away would endanger them both. "I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not a healer," Felix explained very quietly. "We need to get you to the hospital. "

There seemed to be blood everywhere, and Felix couldn't see that the source of it had stopped flowing.

Felix gasped a sharp breath as he saw the change, and the hand that had nearly gone to the man's shoulder snatched back again. He quite nearly overbalanced onto the grass behind him, and caught himself with a hand. Vampires could do that, he knew, but this man was clearly experiencing pain. Also, he was breathing, and warm, as far as Felix could tell. Never let it be said that a Cabaline couldn't draw conclusions from empirical data.

"Strike the hospital," said Felix faintly.

Vod wasn't one for walks in a park. He was, however, one for taking it as a sort of shortcut from one place to another, and since he tried to keep his outside time to a relative minimum, shortcuts (and getting to know the city better) were kind of necessary for his life.

Except things got more interesting when there was a dead body around. With a bird on top of it. That wasn't so odd to Vod, though. Both the Kathaari homeworld and its boot camp world were full of various predatory birds, and some weren't unknown to attack Kathaari.

Of course, he did realize that it had been the better part of a year or so since he'd walked past a corpse. Which was one of the few reasons to give him pause. That and the suit.

Heedless of the bird, Vod approached, and went to one knee beside the body. Unceremoniously, he gave it a pat in the pockets, checking for a wallet. If he was dead, and he had cash, he wouldn't miss it, right?

[personal profile] callmevod 2017-02-14 06:01 am (UTC)(link)
"Fucking bir-- holy shit you're alive!" Vod said, falling back onto his ass and looking at the man, astounded, hands on the grass, now.

"Shit. Do you need a hospital or something, dude?" Vod asked.
callmevod: (Default)

[personal profile] callmevod 2017-02-14 06:21 am (UTC)(link)
"Holy hell..." Vod could hear his wound closing, in the relative quiet.

"W-what the hell even are you, man?" Vod asked, raising an eyebrow.

Vanessa did not know why Judgement had been so heavy on her mind for the last few days, but for a brief moment that evening, as she walked through the park, she thought that the card had come to life before her. It took her a few seconds to realise that it was very real, and she felt compelled to come closer, against all instinct. One tentative step after another became more rushed, until she was running at the bird and whispering words in a language she ought never use, words that would hurt the bird if at all feasible.
miss_ives: (Default)

[personal profile] miss_ives 2017-02-17 06:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Vanessa's steps slowed until she could kneel by the man, glancing the way the bird had gone before focusing on him fully.

And on his skin knitting itself back together on his abdomen. She started, and looked up at his face with mounting dread. "...Prometheus?"

Anyone else would have been too much of a coincidence.
miss_ives: (Default)

[personal profile] miss_ives 2017-02-21 12:06 am (UTC)(link)
She'd reached out and brushed his hair away from his forehead before she might have curbed the urge. "Don't talk." He was clearly in pain, and healing, and he should focus on that, for now, while she looked around to make sure that they had not drawn attention. She still felt wrong for using the Verbis Diablo, but at least it had spared Prometheus more pain.
