((Tribulation has recently given up hope that his mate, Tsunami, will be found. This is a very, very old character. He's distantly related to Kozmo. Song is Hollow Years, by DreamTheater.))

"Carry me to the shoreline.
Bury me in the sand.
Walk me across the water.
Then maybe you'll understand."
--

~
She was laughing, the sound like silver bells to him. The tide was coming in, and she was allowing the frothy water to caress her around the ankles. A larger wave broke, causing her to shriek as she stood, now sopping wet up the her chest. She'd never been more beautiful than she'd been at that very moment.

"Tribbles!" She was the only one who could ever get away with that nickname. Anyone else would have been ignored, but not her. She was the sun. "Tribbles, I'm so wet!" Her laughter, though, told him she really didn't mind. His grin widened as he rolled over, now peering up at her from an upside-down position. His grin was positively goofy, he was sure, but he didn't care. Not with her, anyway.

"I noticed, my love." He chuckled as she slipped closer, brushing her nose across his, as light as a feather. His paws reached up, dragging her down and tussling with her for a few moments. Her laughter was like a drug to him; he fed off it. Winded, he rolled beside her, resting his head across her back, while hers lay against his legs.

"Tribbles?" His ear shifted, before he moved his head to rest on top of his mate's.

"Yes, Tsunami, my pet?"

"If I were to die right now, I'd be content." The lesser elemental snuggled closer, while the Carpathian nearly went cross-eyed as he peered at the slender female.

"Don't talk like that, pet." His voice was stern; perhaps more than it should have been.

"Oh, I don't mean that I'm going to, silly!" Blue eyes looked up at him, a smile on her well-loved face. His response was an affectionate lick to the side of her muzzle. Her gaze turned almost sultry, then. "Bury me in the sand, Tribbles."

It was a request he just couldn't refuse...

~

Eyes that matched the sea snapped open, rapidly-focusing on the sand in front of him. No. No, he didn't want to wake up. He wanted to stay there, where he could be with his Tsunami. Here, he was alone.

He had no future without Tsunami. Hell, without her, he didn't even want one. Once sleek, his pelt was matted and full of sand. He nearly blended in, as the particles had added up in almost record time. He hadn't moved from this spot for nearly three weeks. Before that, there had been some hope... something he could cling to. Not anymore. If she was still alive, she would have come back, by now.

He had even tried going out to search for her. She wasn't anywhere on their beach. Nor was she in the ocean; he had walked out there for days, but to no avail. She wasn't there. His Tsunami was gone. She had left him, at last. He'd known this day would come, eventually. She was an elemental. Perhaps not the One, but she was still a solitary creature, even with him. She would not allow him close; and when she did, it was still guarded. To be an elemental, he knew, was a big responsibility. But he had always thought he would be up to the task of being with her, through thick and thin. He had assumed that, were she to leave to become trained, he would go with her.

Apparently, he had not been the soulmate for her, that she was for him. He did not hang the moon for her, though she had for him. Perhaps it was better this way; he had not been forced to say goodbye. Had she gone while he was awake, he knew, he would have followed her. It didn't matter that he wasn't an elemental; he was hers, after all. Or was he? If he had been, she would not have left him so abruptly.
--

"Once the stone you're crawling under is lifted off your shoulders;
Once the cloud that's raining over your head
Disappears, the noise that you hear is the crashing down of hollow years..."
--

It was past time to hide, now. She was not coming back; now or ever. Even if she did, how could he trust her again? She had used him, plain and simple. He had done as she asked, protected her. Would have walked the world over to get a blade of grass she wanted. And still, she had left him. It was enough to make him wonder.

How long had he been lying here, letting himself dwindle into such a state? How long since he'd last smiled... last sang? How long since he had last felt real joy? He rose now, staring over the seas. This... this was still his home, as it had been before Tsunami had come into his life. His beach, his ocean, his world. He knew, all too well, how rare his talent was. He'd been coveted for it many times. It made the world smaller, and would have given him an advantage as a spy. No one would ever see him coming.

That was why he had left. He'd found a home, and then he had found... Her. Tsunami had been his whole world... but now... now it was time to come out and see what he had missed. Now... it was time to be what he knew he was... PERFECT.

A little ways down the beach walked a white wolf. He had not sensed the other male laying near the shoreline as he stroll quietly along the sand.
He was smaller than most males but had a solid build under his white coat. A band of black streaked over his eyes which were a startling sapphire blue. He had no other notable features and was often one to stay to himself. It was hard to say exactly how old the wolf was but seemed to be in his prime.
He frowned as he stepped on a particularly sharp shell. Grunting he flicked it with a swift movement from his paw. He paused, not far from the male laying in the sand, and lifted his head looking out over the seas vastness. Quietly he lay down and stared out into the seas enveloping beauty.
He wasn't even sure exactly where he was. The coast obviously but whose lands he was on he had no idea. Something made the wolf turn his head, ears pricked and eyes wide. He shimmered and suddenly vanished...
... Wolfstar slinked quickly across the sands and hunkered down in the bushes along the shoreline. He had suddenly noticed the male and not wishing to be caught up in a fight with a larger wolf, Wolfstar had hidden himself. From the bushes his form returned to normal and he waited to see what this wolf would do...

The twisting insanity of her world was now so much better. She had complete control over what she saw. To her, it was just images flicking behind her eyeslids, almost like watching T.V. and flicking the channels constantly. Recently, to her dismay, she started hearing voices. This was the most irritating thing she had ever come across. And now she was stuck with it.

Flicking her tail in annoyance, she continued on, watching and seeing, but not really being there to absorb it. She was lost in her own world, but not in with the visions or sounds. She was just... zoned out. Her multi-colored body stood out like a sore thumb along the waters edge, and the soft sand. She was a misfit with the decor... As she liked to put it.

Glancing up at the sky, she noted the birds and how far away they were from her. With a shrug, she nearly stumbled as a large, somehow invisble but visible log, was in her way. Staring down at it with contempt, she merely jumped over it and landed on the other side with a triumphant grin. "Well, here we go then.. Something to make my day." She whispered to herself.

Locking herself back into her own mind, she sighed with a snort at the end before sitting down and staring out over the water. Watching the waves lick up to about two inches of her red and white front paws, her eyes crossed in what looked like a pained expression. She was close to someone, and this one was haunted, atleast by what she could tell from the strong images she was getting. Growling and feeling the natural way of her being, she stood and merely sniffed the water before turning on her heels.

"Rabbit hole.." She randomnly muttered before starting down the way she believed the wolf to be. From what she could see, but from a far distance from her eyes, she saw a wolf matted in sand and looking broken in a twisted sort of way. Feeling her lips turn up in more of a grimace, she continued on, knowing she was going to get into trouble with this.

"Your mind is a weapon, see? But you're not gonna use it on me.." She spoke that to herself over and over again, hoping that the sentences would bore some sense into her, but she merely felt the motherly part of her pull her on, continuing the path she was taking to get to what she was hunting for.

After a mere short hour, or what seemed like a few minutes to her, she silently stopped atop a small hill and stared down, seeing the one she was meant to see. Tilting her head, and deciding on a usual way of announcing herself, she raised her voice, singing a mere joyful, but almost submissive song out, letting this wolf know she was no threat.

'Maybe something good will come of this...' She thought for a second before silently chiding herself with a rush of breath. 'You are stupid, Twisted. You know, you should know what happens when you get close to ANYONE.' She thought before rolling her eyes heavenwards. 'Though, this still will be interesting. You are so weak-hearted, but you will do this, whether all of you agrees or not.'

Silently padding down the slight decline, she reached a good few hundred feet away before stopping and dipping her head, body slightly lowered. But for being a female, and now smelling him, she knew that it would not be hard to show she was not here to harm.

With her voices raising in her ears, she shook her head and growled a warning to herself before closing out the visions and sounds as best as she could. Right now, with some unknown thought to her head, or even heart, she was wanting to reach out to this grieving wolf. Something was not right, and she wanted to figure out what.

'Just don't get too close, Twisted. You know what happened last time..' She trailed off her thoughts and patiently stood there, body trembling slightly. She still could not see the male clearly, but she could wait. Patience was never a virtue of hers, but she made it work as she danced back and forth from left to right on her paws.

First thing was first; he needed to get the sand off his coat, and he needed to do it now. What better way than to roll (yes, roll) in the ocean? He rose then, body quivering as he forced his protesting muscles to move, and ultimately walk down to the ocean, where the most amazing thing happened. While one would naturally think he could simply walk out into the ocean, the wolf didn't. He actually walked ONTOP of the water, his face slowly revealing joy as he felt the sea shifting slightly under his overly-large paws. This was why he had to roll in the water; it was the only way he could actually feel water. He titled his head, held his breath, and rolled.

It accomplished two things; one, it actually did work as well as he had thought, forcing his pelt to void itself of sand, and aiding in getting some of those pesky knots out. The other, it brought him up sputtering, having nearly inhaled salty sea water. His smile widened, and he balanced himself on his paws, peering over the beach with a hint of disdain. THIS was where this handsome, perfect male belonged. On the ocean, on a river, anywhere there was water. It was his drug of choice; he couldn't survive without it, but it hurt all the same; it was the same thing that had kept Tsunami with him for such a short time.

That thought sobered him, and he calmly walked across the rolling waves, easily regaining his footing on dry land. He shook himself, trying to remove any remaining sand, and send any and all water droplets into far flung corners of the beach. He looked somewhat better as he lay back down on a nearby rock, this time letting the warmth from the sun-baked granite, and that of the sun, dry him thoroughly. It was about that time that he heard a howl; soft, sweet, and undeniably feminine in nature. One ear flicked forward in interest, while the rest of him became somewhat passive. It wasn't everyday that a female ventured her, of course, but he also knew what had become of the last one to grace this beach. She had judged him and found him to be somewhat lacking. He was, as she put it, simply too bizarre. Or had that been his over-active imagination, now that the silence of his territory had become so deafening? Either way, that it was a female was soon disregarded. He didn't care for anyone; her being a femme would not get her any special treatment, in any case.

He did shift position slightly, however, appearing more lordly. Yes. He would play the polite, rather benevolent Lord, once again. He had been too open with Tsunami from the first. She had been the first outsider he'd seen in literally years... and was a welcome change from the trees, stones, and other varied elements that he spoke with to keep himself somewhat sane. This time, he would act as if her arrival was inconsequential. Yes... that might work. If he was kindly, and didn't press her, perhaps she would stay, and at the very least give him someone to speak with on occasion. That would be nice.

The decision was made, and he hauled himself into a more dignified position, head erect, staring out over the sea with the slightest of smiles on his gray muzzle. Yes, he actually was Lord of this small place. This was no act; simply a more dignified expression of ownership than perhaps would be expected. He was Carpathian, a race that went back to the birth of the Dark Angellic itself. He was, however, a very rare display of it. Most had only minor ability to walk upon water, compensating for it with one of two abilities; shapeshifting, or inhuman strength. He had neither of these abilities, but he was the best there was at walking across water, no two ways about it. Unlike most Carpathians, he did not sink after a quarter-mile journey in. It made him an oddity even to his own race, which was a dying one, at best. Most, he knew, had died already. Even Pacer and Rilian had passed into shadow, as far as he could tell.

Nostrils quivered, snapping him from his thoughts as a scent wafted past his nose. His smile grew, a bit more kindly, as he gazed in her general direction. She was hesitant to begin with; he could not frighten her now. She was very small, when compared to him, and his heart constricted. He had a natural desire to protect things that were smaller than he himself.

"Come along, my dear," his voice was soft, carried on the wind. It was not an angry voice, nor a cruel one. It was warm and rich, calling her to come to him. He would not harm her. And, no, he wasn't angry that she'd come into his territory uninvited, as it were.

Twisted gasped. She broke her carefully constructed concentration and was thouroughly swept away in the visions and voices. Her body stood stock still as it all crashed through her. She couldn't get away from it, as strong as it was controlling her. Just like before, only worse.

Hearing something, she felt a bone jarring pull back to reality. Feeling the walls crawl back up into her mind, she turned her eyes towards the male, keeping it on his chest. She tilted her head in an inquiring manner before stepping forward to get closer; and then sat down. Her tail twitched at the end, showing she was listening.

"Come along, where?" She whispered just loud enough for him to barely hear. Twisting an ear on her head, she listened to the waves for a second before leaping sideways as water almost touched her. She grimaced, knowing the smell of it would bring the birds down on her. Looking up with one swift movement, she shifted again.

Energy hard held was being built up in her viens, but she kapt it in check. A soft smile graced her lips as she dared to take a look. She could dream when she left. Yes, she could. Seeing the position of his body, the strong muscles--

Being cut off short of a strong image crowding the back of her eyelids, she caught a whisp of image of his fur. She slammed it down, being reminded of why she never got close to anyone. Physically, too. It all just came stronger to her, and it was so hard..

Snapping back out of that, she stared back at him. Her tail twitched again and again, her body trying to release this tension built up inside of her. Not knowing where it was coming from, she stood back up and watched as the waves licked at her feet. Staring, but not seeing, she called out. "I'm Twisted Whispers. Twisted for short."

She doubted he knew of her pack, or of her bloodlines. Which many millions of them there were. Somehow one of her siblings had come out half vampire, or with some blood in him of that, and then there was Red Velvet. The It of the family. Or what she could not call a family.

Mentally shrugging, she doubted he would care anyhow. She was just passing through, not like she had time to tell him her life story, or vice versa. Placing a well mannered smile on her face, she awaited his next words. Hopefully she could be on her way before another vision attacked.
