Sugary was calmly snacking of course, though he couldn't shake off the uneasy feel coming from Umbra's room, as if something wasn't meant to be happening. He grew ever more anxious to see what was on the other side for various reasons, but none would be so obvious to act upon as the noises from the room practically startled him to the point he almost thought the ship was being torn apart. "Holy hell!! Umbra!? That does it, I'm coming in!!"

He would steel himself for whatever disaster was occurring, ready to fight if necessary even, but his main concern was what state she was in. He suspected the Golem from earlier had something to do with it, but either way he'd find out once and for all as he opened the door quickly and looked around. "Umbra- Eh, what!?" He was somewhat distracted as he called in and tried to spot her, but the ice he stepped on nearly made him lose balance before he could go in further.

Hearing the sound of something galloping at full speed towards its door, its clay tensing up just as the muscles on a predator would, bulges forming all over its body as its gathered power twisted it out of form. Confronted with an enraged beast 6 times taller than one self would most stop up and think an extra time, even the most drunken stubborn horny hormone maddened teen stallion being egged on by a whole herd of skimpy clad strippers in heat would listen to their little voice in their head called survival instinct, and think heed the wise words of "nope nope nope!" before turning 180 degree on the spot and run away with their tail between their legs. But not the golem, it throwing itself against the brown giant, it having been made with neither ears nor tail, or brains for that matter.

With the force of a fire hose flew the clay man through the air at Sugary's back head, its body spreading itself out mid flight, looking much like an octopus would do as it threw itself at pray, ready to smother and devour its pointed furry head if... no when its stealthy sneak attack succeeded and the titanic monster would loose its balance and fall to its butt not knowing what there hit it! With the sound of a wet towel hitting a wall made the guardian contact, its body feeling like the offspring of a jellyfish there had tried to mate with putrid mud and against all logic succeeded, its smell up so close matching its look, but with an added tang of rusted iron and rotting seaweed clinging to it as well.



From under the bed could Umbra her the door being thrown up as she wrestled and lost against her half frozen blanket, her just getting tighter and tighter caught up in it with each attempt at flailing her arms. Being like a bug caught in a cocoon saw Umbra no other escape than to roll herself to freedom, the mare spitting out a curse on a forgotten tongue at each bump to her sore head, Umbra ending up dizzy from the rolling on top of her confusion about what there was going on, her groggy half sleeping head trying to find some order in all the chaotic information it was overflowing with.

Because of the spread out energy of the first golem in the entire room after it volunteered to consume all the ice and explode for the sake of its Master, it would be very hard for Sugary to tell that there was a second one close by up until he got hit in the back of the head with it and really lost his balance as the sneak attack was a success. "Gah!?!?" He barely broke his fall as the cracked ice and solid hard wood cushioned the fall as well as one would expect, but he at least had the right idea to use his hands to make it easier on himself and try to recover. Or rather, he would have, but he still had a loyal minion to take care off. He felt what he thought was biting, and so he'd frantically try and turn around while furiously charging his magic in the process as he tried to pry it off with one strong arm wherever he could grasp the golem at, flaring his horn with raw magic that the creature should probably avoid touching as it violently lashed at close range at anything that wasn't Sugary himself.

Though in his effort, he'd notice Umbra as well, quickly calling out to her with worry while he could. "Umbra!? You okay!?" He would have tended to her, but first he needed to take care of what he thought was the cause of all their problems right now, keeping the other free arm ready to strike as well once he got the right leverage and bearings again.

Sugary s attempts at ripping and tearing the assaulting golem off with his hands alone was futile uphill battle. For each  time his hands gained a grip onto it, his strong fingers burrowing into the soft loam like body and tore long strands of bloody clay from his face, each time did two of those strands retract into its body once more, it being the battle of a man trying to quench the flames of a burning house with nothing beside a glass of water.


The guardian had never expected to get a massage like this by the furry giant, its claws really finding all the good spots and unwinded them ohh so gently, its touch being the caring and thorough one of the most tainted succubus ... Because it was a massage wasn't it? It could surely not be an attack as masterly as his, so much was certain! But enough was enough and it wasn't time to relax and enjoy itself just yet, it still having a duty to do! So as the giant dug deeply into one of the good spots once more shifted it suddenly consistency, the damp clay turning into oozy sticky sludge, the giants hand stuck as it now began to pull back, it laughing out loud if it was able to over the tug of war that the two just had begun!


"Headache," was Umbras answer to Sugary, the word being in the same language that she had cursed the pain with and not Equine, or she was sure that she had answered Sugary, her seeing both stars and moon and double as well, even if her sight was slowly getting clearer and clearer.

Lighting up her horn with darkness began the threads of her cotton cocoon to rupture, a myriad of tiny minuscule hands, claws, talons and tentacles ripping the cloth in two, the break so fine oh so fine and straight as a die. "Headache!," answered she once more with eyes squeezed shut to shut out the pain, the word now in a tongue that they both shared. The tips of her finger touching her horn ever so gently as if it was made of the purest china, the mare groaning in pain each at the touch and removed her hands quickly again, before she repeated it once more and then a few more times, each time being in great surprise over her horn still was still hurting like seven hells.

Sugary would look and listen briefly as Umbra spoke with apparent pain, on top of blatantly saying she had a headache while touching her horn. He really began to worry as he caught a glimpse of the tendrils coming from her and breaking apart the sheet she had with her.

With the muddy creature proving to be a great nuisance, especially with Umbra nearby seemingly in trouble and his hand now struggling against a sticky gooey version of the creature, he decided to focus his magic towards a more aggressive take on the assailant on top of him. "Graah!! Time to clean up!" Indeed, it was time to cleanse the muddy minion with a bath after the massage was given, courtesy of the true master of the ship, and quickly his horn began to glow blue as he shifted his body to take a seating position, aiming the stuck arm against the wall furthest from Umbra. What followed immediately after was a surge of water enveloping the horn and part of Sugary's head and mane as the water and magic rushed down and though and up his stuck arm, clenching his hand into a fist inside the creature as he forced the water into it's body from the inside out... And then really force the creature to drink up as he burst the water to rush into it and try to spread it with immense pressure to wash the creature away from the back of his head once and for all. "Get OFF!!"

Water! How had it known! Its one and only weakne... The only thing in all existence that hur... The one thing that it disliked so much that it was a nuisance. Wits its body hissing as steam spewed from it, the clay slowly bobbling up like puss filled blisters born from an aggressive rash before they exploded with scalding hot muddy water.

Quickly did it fle... plan its tactical retreat so it could gain the advantage once more, its body contacting to a little small ball, letting go of hand and fur alike, but not before pulling some of the beasts fur out, a trophy that it would present later. The small mudball bouncing away to hide somewhere in the room, it giving off the sound of a glass marble with each bounce and jump, although no marble had ever before been found to utter profanities as they bounced around.

Sugary grunted slightly as the golem made off with some of his fur forcefully, but he was now free of the minion and could stand up and really exert his dominance on the ship as he then focused his magic aura to seep into the floor of the room, soon lighting up the entire room with both the light it held on the ceiling for practical visibility, and the runes all over the room to accurately allow him to extend his reach of sensitivity through it. The creature might have tried to hide, but he could now feel exactly where it was, and so Sugary sent a surge of energy right after the creature to shock, numb, and magically grasp its body into paralysis to really give it something to swear over before moving over to Umbra.

He didn't move all too much towards her since she did lash out against the sheets with her magic to free herself, but he did extend a friendly and concerned arm for her to grab onto should she need the support. His eyes shone with a stern pink glow, his natural color of magic, looking her over for any injuries though never once forgetting about the golem. "Umbra? Can you hear me? Did that creature attack you?" There was a lot he didn't understand yet, but his top priority was to look after his guest before tending to other matters.

Sugary did not know it yet, but he had just done two very, oh so very, dire mistakes.

As he turned the lights on, the runes shining bright and sending the darkness away, cried Umbra out in pain once more, her hands as well as the many helping ones that just had helped her free from the cotton cocoons prison reaching for her eyes as to shield them from the burning light. With hoofs kicking out at nothing, her head being thrown from shoulder to shoulder, the joints of her neck popping one after one from the force they were subjected to. Throwing herself around like a mad pony hit a splatter of blood soon Sugary and then floor alike, him first now seeing that she wasn't actually shielding her eyes, but was trying and succeeding at clawing them out, her fingers having penetrated the soft membrane and was already dug a joint in.

As Sugary's magic went searching out trough his domain found he first one piece of magic aura, it hiding under the bed. As soon as there was connection were Sugary doused with an ocean of magical readings. He could feel the being itself, how it was made from something not of this nor his world yet was bound by something very much from this realm, pony blood. Before he could lean more from his Libra spell came the spells that the golem was using over him, all of them now having found a target as he had reached a hand out towards it. The magic that the being was using was weak, weaker than anything that he would be able to sense under normal circumstances, but using his ship as focus caught he each and every spell, many of them were exotic to him, alien even, but seeing a blood red thread between those he understood, some even being native to his lands knew he what they all meant. What they all were, pleas of help.

Reaching out further trough the realm of his ship found the spell a second golem. With the knowledge he had just gained could he skip a step of the magical examination since he already knew what they were made out of, the magic taking a step forth, taking a step into, reaching for the core of their spell and being, and found it. Even if the cries for help was buzzing in the back of the head of him could he feel the core of the golem clearly, for it was fighting back against the examination, the only thing he was able to learn being that the two wasn't just animated, no they were really alive.

Many a filly and colt have been told to quit while they were ahead, maybe had Sugary never heard that saying when he was younger, but it would have done him well had he heed the warning. For reaching out further still touched his spell something for the third time, it feeling what Umbra was and was made off. But then was it as if it had reached nothing at all, not now, not ever, for he had prodded something that no mortal ever should touch. He had gazed too far into the abyss, and something had gazed back... and then pulled him in.

It lasted a small fraction of a thousandth of a heartbeat with a duration there was longer than all of the time of creation combined, he was there floating in all and nothing, seeing the creation of all, the realms of other beings, the end of all, and was staring into black nothingness as well. Sugary starved to death, he drowned, was burnt, ripped asunder, whipped, maimed, and yet felt he as comfortable as if he was laying on a spring meadow. Had it lasted longer, or maybe shorter, or even lasted at all, had Sugary properly been driven mad by it all, but something warm took him by the nape, a soft caring hand pulling him out of it all.

The sensation was indescribable and beyond any word or feeling, it being just like being reborn, the cold morning air brushing against his hide feeling like his mothers loving and caring womb. Opening his eyes were he met with the darkness one find when waking up with their blanket over their head, and yet was it like opening ones eyes for the first time. Umbras hoarse whisper, "Some food will help you feel more... you," her words being so that a falling pin would have sounded like thunder, it sounded like all the worlds sounds assaulting him at once. The scent of warn milk with honey, freshly toasted bread with melting butter on it, and the dry earthy scent of clay from the two golems that had locked together to form a tray for the food to rest on, it smelling like heaven, as a new life that just had begun.

(("When the grief lets you go."))

It was very hard to tell as Sugary looked upon in horror if he was really seeing what he saw, or if the one he was trying to help was actually harming herself well beyond what should have been necessary. Before he could even feel bad about what he thought what had been happening to Umbra, or feel much of anything for that matter, he felt something click. Perhaps he was imagining it as well, but he now found himself in a Void as nothing more than a small but bright spark surrounded by an overwhelming cloud of darkness, facing what looked to be a door. He felt oh so compelled to open it, and open it he did...

What he thought he felt from there on was perhaps the single most difficult experience he had ever been through. He thought he heard voices calling for help he could not reach, he thought he would lose himself to the darkness but time and time again he fought on, only to be brought back to the brink of extinction and then fight his way back up again. He was a sturdy fella, but ultimately a mortal. The trials he faced were far too difficult for him to take on alone as he was not where he belonged...

He felt like he had found paradise when it seemed like an ally had come to help him after all when even he thought himself to be lost for good, grieving that he would not ever come back. Whoever had saved him from stepping just a bit too far from the row he should have stayed at, had his eternal gratitude...

When he woke up, he felt oddly numb and fuzzy. It was a very pleasant feeling however, as is was the kind of numbness one felt when not wanting to get out of bed just because it was that welcoming, while the fuzzy feeling was the complete and utter lack of need to think about anything after a good night's rest and just enjoy having rested well for the sake of it. The smells nearby made him feel happy, as if he could find no better place to be anywhere else...

However, as soon as he heard Umbra's voice, and lightly turned to look at her and the golems, he suddenly felt like he had grown older and wiser the hard way. He still wasn't sure what had been real or not as the gears in his head began to spin faster, but there was one thing he was sure of, and that was the fact he needed to make up for something. He wasn't sure what it was yet, but it was right there as Umbra looked back at him with teary eyes. "... I'm sorry... To all of you..." He replied just slightly less softly than Umbra herself to the trio, slowly getting himself up a bit, and reach to eat his given breakfast that the golems so generously held for him. "... And thanks..."

Giving a little smile that wasn't one at all dried Umbra her eyes once more, not finding any tears but only bloodshot tired eyes. "Don't mention it," came it from her as she rose from the chair with a heavy tired sigh and began to totter over to the door of Sugary's bedroom, as she now stood up could he see that she was wearing the same worn clothes as he had found her in yesterday. "Really... don't mention it ever again. It will only bring trouble."

Soon after Umbra left the room could Sugary hear a faint bump as if she finally had given up and rested her body up against her wall, a whistle soon being heard as well, the sound making the two brothers of clay to let loose of each other and form small men once more before they ran with nimble movements out the bedroom to their master, them even remembering to close the door behind them.


In the kitchen would Umbra soon flop down on a chair, her body making the wood complain under her, hand movements waved in the air as she rested her head on the lovely soft surface of the table telling the two what to do, and soon had the striped mare her own breakfast. Being tired as had she not slept since Nightmare Moon rein did the two small helpers help her out, them even cutting the food out and moved her jaw as well so she hadn't had to use the energy to chew, Umbras mind being a whole other place.

With Umbra and her golems gone from the room, Sugary was now left alone with little else but the nice breakfast, her cryptic words, the realization that his clothes were in fact bloody when he looked at himself, and his thoughts for the time being. "... Jeez... Now what...?" was the question he thought to himself the most, but it was too soon to come up with an answer by himself. Did he want to help her still somehow? Yes. Did he think she needed help? Maybe. Was he wise in wanting to lend her an aid of some sort after what happened? Probably not.

Then again, he wasn't always the smartest of fellows, but rather a stubborn one from time to time. Not that he never learned from his mistakes, and it seemed Umbra was the kind of mare one needed to thread around very carefully. At the same time though, he wasn't one to back down from a challenge if he thought there was something worthwhile to gain from it.

At some point, he'd finish his meal, still thinking, having taken off the bloody clothes and changed into a simple pair of red shorts, and yet still feeling as refreshed as could be while contemplating. Another truth held itself in his mind, and that was the fact she and her companions had tended to him even though he should be doing the opposite for them... He decided she was probably worth the trouble after all as he got up, steeling his resolve, and heading out the room to try and speak with the enigmatic mare. He just needed to see how she was doing at least...

As soon as Sugary opened the door of his bedroom got he clues as to where the pony shaped enigma known as Umbra where, the scent of newly cooked food and the clinking of cutlery telling him that she was in the kitchen. As he walked down the corridor to the kitchen grew the scent of mouth watering food stronger and stronger, and he was soon able to pick out scents from each other. In his nose played the smoky scent frying bacon, and that of fried apples with a dash of cinnamon and the sweetish touch of tomatoes getting the same treatment as well, but they were just those he could mention, other more exotic scents also greeting him, all as pleasing as the other.

Stepping into the kitchen saw he a sight worth the princesses, one golem, the guardian from yesterday if the chefs hat fashioned out of caramel horsehair was any clue, it standing at the stove, manning all of the burners at one and the same time, cooking a feast worthy a whole army. Its brother jumping to and fro, cleaning, chopping, fetching and serving plate after plate of food, its armour of bones not making a single sound as it ran about, it being the prime specimen of a servant, it not being heard and hardly seen.

Hearing Sugary entering the room turned Umbras ears towards him, her quickly empting her plate of the last few bites of what there had looked to be some kind of omelet before she pushed the chair opposite her out from the table with a prod of a hoof. It took no detective to see that she still was tired, bags hanging under her eyes, her mane duller than the day before and a few dozen other signs, but she was looking much better, and when Sugary came to the seat that she had offered him could he see a shadow of a smile hanging in one of the corners of her mouth.

Tapping twice on the table came the "waiter" rushing, the empty plate before her being swapped out with a new one and the glasses before her getting filled as well, a sweet tea filling one of them while the other was filled water that had both ice and slivers of lime and lemon swimming around in it. Tapping twice once more, this time on her thigh left the two men of clay their work in the kitchen and resumed their jobs as golems, each standing tall and staunch as they awaited new orders right by her side, the conjured blade from yesterday being at her side as well. "An old and dear friend thought me once that the best conversations are made over a hot meal, the listener as well as the talker being able to work their mouths at the same time without interrupting each other" came it from Umbra in a most level and measured voice, her pushing the newly made plate of food over the table so it sat between the two of them. On it were a nice arrangement, the middle of the plate being adorned with a basket filled to the brim with bun like breads, newly made and smelling of both garlic and alfalfa, around it sitting small hills of vegetables, peas, corn, cubes of sweet peppers as well as cucumber and a few other things, as well as smaller bowls with sour cream as well as oil to dip the bread in.

"I know that you properly have a lot of questions for and about me," a little tired sigh escaping her even if she tried to hold her back, her shoulders as well sinking down a bit even if she tried to sit straight, looking as if the subject was something she dreaded and one she had been trough all too many times. "But know this before you ask a single one of them, I will answer all of them truthfully, but in exchange do you have to answer one of mine questions just as truthfully. I will properly not ask my questions now, but a truth for a truth, a question for a question and an answer for an answer?"

Sugary didn't doubt Umbra would be easy to find in his own home, but he didn't expect the sight before him as he saw the golems being a busy bunch in their most unusual way, and yet so effectively productive. While their presence only made things about Umbra more enigmatic, even he could not help but smile that the kitchen was now crowded in a way he had not seen for some time now that they were 4 as far as he was concerned.

What really surprised him was how Umbra seemingly invited him to sit just by opening the space between the chair and the table with her leg, which while it might have been a simple thing, he thought it meant a lot after what happened. He graciously accepted and sat right before his guest.

Being told about conditions for questions in a straightforward manner also helped to measure what was acceptable to speak of. She was being to the point, and he'd of course respond in kind as he looked at the three around him to question things initially. "Very well... I'll start with... What are you? And I don't mean you just looking like part zebra and unicorn, I mean what is it about you that lets you cast the spells you seems to know for someone that looks so young. Second, what are they?" He pointed to the golems and raised a brow. "Summoned Demons? Golems? Eidolons? And lastly..." He pointed more poignantly at the one with the fur Chef's hat. "Is that my fur!? I don't recall losing that much!" He had many more questions in mind, but they had to start somewhere.

Code:
Umbra knew that the stallion had an ocean of questions slushing around in his head, but so many so soon! She had promised him the truth, but she had not been prepared to serve such a big portion all at once, her breaking one of the breads in two and began to dip it in the different piles of veggies to catch a little of this and a little of that to bid her some time to formulate her answers properly. She had promised him the truth in exchange for truth, but neither had agreed on the rate of their little deal, and if she could quench his thirst for knowledge while still coming out on top. She was not a bad or evil person, just brought up by a demon.

Stretching her hand forth as to take Sugary's tapped she the table with a finger that wasn't holding his hand, and as she had done that began one of her clay men to climb up to the table only to stand beside their hands. "It sure looks like that dosn't it?" came it from her, her touch not nearly as cold as that of yesterday, but still not as warm as that of a healthy pony. Yet another tap of her finger making the little figure lay one of his own hands on hers. "I can't answer the question with full certainty, they do not see and sense our world as we do. The only thing he saw was a foe and a trophy, nothing more nothing less." Their hands parting as she had said the last word of the answer, her fingers idly drawing a circle over and over again on the wood of the table.

"As for what I am and how that grants me the knowledge and powers that I have...Aaptrganga." A mortal throat should not be able to say such a word, it being a word of power not from this realm. There was something about the word that made the hairs on the neck stand on end, something wrong about it, the feeling not being helped along as it was like the shadows around them grew deeper and flickered for the shortest of moment as she spoke the word. "As for them... They are Náir and Ālfheimr, and the answer is yes and still no at the same time when you ask questions about their kind. They are not fully golem, for they have a mind of their own... to a certain degree. They are demon, and still not, and they are eidolon, and still not, for they are the forgotten shadows of demon gone by and not mortal man. You can use all the terms and phrases known to petty sorcerers of their minions that they enslave, but none would fit my Náir and Ālfheimr, my left and right hand."

As she was finally done with the answers leaned the mare back with a satisfied smile on her lips, her happy with herself and her the quality of the answers since the subject was a sore one, something that she hopefully hadn't shown to him. Stretching out in her full length snapped she once with her hands over her head, her horn flaring five short dull times as five small runic circles formed in the ring she had drawn before.

As Sugary lent his hand, he wasn't particularly fond of being reminded of how the creature got its look, but he complied all the same. He didn't have a reason to reject Umbra after all, and showing her his hand was a minor effort.

His senses raised many red flags at being told what she was, as his magic reflexively lit up a bit to cast an aura of Light magic around his horn in preparation as the room was suddenly feeling like there was a chance some thorough balancing would need to be applied by force. He didn't quite understand what she was still, but he was certain it involved something ancient and primal with her spoken words. "... Could she be a being from the Void...? Hard to tell..."

Being told of the golems, he looked them up close and spoke softly afterwards. "... So they're your guardians then. I see." And afterwards, he looked at the symbols she made right before him as he kept his aura gently alight for good measure. "... I'd ask what that is, but don't you wanna ask me anything yet...?" That wasn't quite a question that needed answering as he was sure she would have taken her chance by now as he too took some of the bread and slowly filled it with delectable ingredients. "Then I'll continue... What exactly are you making on the table there? Can you make your guardians... not see me as a threat? And as for what you are... Should I be worried over it?" And so, he began to eat while he waited.

Umbra knew that Sugary meant no ill harm as he summoned his magic to cast sound his horn in the aura of light, but the gentle shine was still enough to hurt her eyes, the mare quickly turning her head away and shaded her eyes before turning them back at the stallion with a frown, her eyes looking as if she just had some kind of allergic attack. "I do remember you saying something about not upsetting your guests displeasure or make them uncomfortable while they travelled with you, so would you please warn me in advance before you casts spells like that in the future." As she was done speaking were her eyes almost back to normal, only having a hint of the redness from before, her voice being just as level and controlled as before when she was answering his question.

"As what I am doing," a finger tapping once on each of the small runic circles that was connected by the big one she had made, the two clay men springing to action, running from tapped circle to tapped circle in a chaotic and random order to complete her unaware command. "Its a reminder for both of us, one circle for each of the truths that I am owed, my own little way of keeping count." Her first now seeing what the two were doing, her looking down at the two with a look that just spoke "really...?" in capital letters before she sighed and tapped once more to make them stop running to and fro.

"I can not change how they see the world and those in it, both of them owing the gift of free will..." Her coughing down in her hand as she remembered what the two had done just moments ago. "Bashing into a ladies room in the middle of the night is an act seen as threatening by most, so as long as you refrain from doing such things will they not be of any annoyance to you. As for if you should be worried for me and what I am, only if you try to hurt me." Her taking the other half of the bread she had broken before and dipped that as well as she thought for questions.

"I know enough about you for now and have no questions that I want to asks." Her eyes gliding studying over him as she took the first bite and questioned herself if the answer she had given actually had been true. It was first now that she realised that something was missing as hey eyes went over his torso once more, her now first really seeing him and with that his many prominent muscles. Umbra had not really paid attention to other peoples bodies, only having needed to remember faces and names on her travels up until now, but seeing Sugary as the stallion as he was and his nakedness as well blushed her cheeks. "Or I have one actually... Why is it that you are half naked? Is that how you normally are dressing in the company of guests?" Her almost having added a "female" as well to the question, but stopped herself before she could blurt it out.

As she had answered the question one for one had a new circle formed on the ring, the others moving aside to make room, the distance between them always ending up as being equal. One of the circles fading away as she asked her own question so eight was left.

Sugary somewhat reluctantly, but quickly, dissipated the Light aura at Umbra's request and obvious discomfort, letting out a light sigh afterwards as he got the feeling he might have to keep restraining himself around her. "Ah... Sorry, force of habit. I'll try to keep it in check."

He listened in well to the simple explanation of the rune being drawn on his table, though he couldn't help but feel like it was all being handled in the form of a contract. "... Why do I feel like I'm making a pact with a demon? Maybe I'm just being paranoid..." He also, of course, took special interest in what the golems were doing, but had no idea what was going on until he saw Umbra seemingly tap as a command. "Interesting... Quite the oddly loyal pair..." He also needed to come to terms that they were not likely to listen to him any time soon, and yet he distinctly recalled how the one with the bones actually waited for him to enter as if they knew who he was. "... Maybe they're just picky...?"

Sugary merely nodded slowly in acknowledgement of Umbra's warning about trying to hurt her. "Fair enough... We don't try to hurt one another, we'll all be fine then." It was sort of a way to say that he would likely strike back as well if she abused his trust and role as a host with hostility.

The one question she did ask really as puzzling for a moment though, before he opened his eyes a bit wider at what she really meant as he began to summon something from his belongings elsewhere in the ship as his horn lit up with his natural pink magic color while waving his hand. "Oh! Right! That...! Uh... Pardon, I sometimes forget not everyone around here is as... what's the word... Liberal...? No, not that... Shameless...? No, that's worse..." After concentrating enough, he essentially summoned a simple green cotton tunic with short sleeves to appear in his hand from his own closet and began to wear it. "Point is, I'd move about bare more often if I could. I find it rather comforting..." He had to admit, he felt a tad flattered that Umbra blushed lightly at his physique, but he held back the chuckle that might have gone along with it.

"Well... Now for my next questions... Actually... Just one for now..." He crossed his arms in thought as he looked straight into her eyes. "... You say you no longer have a certain companion you once had. You live mainly on the streets if I recall... You also said you might just stay over for a single night, which you did if I recall... So, what is it that you intend to do from now on?"

Umbra had prepared herself to share many an uncomfortable truths, reinforced her personal boundaries in await of the assault of question... but that was one she wasn't prepared for...

Looking down at the table whispered she something, not looking the least bit comfortable with herself, or what she were going to do. Snapping her fingers sprung the golems to action, them each hooking a hand down into the runic circle that had been drawn and pulled it towards Sugary, as soon as the two touched were there a short pain as a spark shot forth and a drop of blood began to fell, Umbras hand shooting forth to be zapped just as well so their blood would touch the circle almost as the same time. The blood had the most peculiar effect on the circle, beads of black bobbling up in place of the rings of rune, a peal bracelet laying in it place, it finding a place around Umbras wrist as she laid her hand on top of it before she turned around and began to leave the room.

Sugary was confused at the sudden change in procedure on how the magic circle was being dealt with as he saw the golems and Umbra do what looked to be a small blood ritual before him. He was expecting a lot to happen as he saw the bracelet form, ready to hear what the mare would say to him... but would be well and truly surprised to see her just get up and leave. He began to worry a bit. "Huh...? Umbra, wait, is something wrong? If this is because of what I asked, you can just tell me you don't know if you really don't know... We can just talk about something else." He'd even get up and follow her if he had to and make sure she heard him. If she kept walking away, he'd keep following to see if something had really gone wrong.

With her two followers in toe, them hurrying as much as they could to keep up with their mistress stormed Umbra for the room that she had been allowed to use. From time to another would the two rush up in front of her with danger to be trampled down, them trying to cheer her up with silly form, circus jumps and other acts.

For the first time in many many years had she been asked a question she didn't knew the answer to in advance, not partially or even a fraction of the answer, and for the first time in her life did she not have her Mister Voice to go to to seek guidance. She had not cried since the day he left, and could no longer remember when she really had cried properly with him at her side, him always being there to comfort and offer relief. But now were the tears silently gliding down her cheeks, two lines of frost crystals running from her eyes and down her cheeks.

Before she reached the door flashed her horn and she flung the door up so it rang throughout the half ship, using just as much magical force to smack it behind her, and just as well as she sealed it shut with layer upon layer of runes leaving Sugary on the other side. Before the final lines in the protecting and sealing runes completed themselves were the door pushed just agape and the shadow of Umbra could be heard. "You were right and said the truth yourself. Happy?" Her voice so small and miserably as a teenagers voice could be, the hoarseness of a weeping girl hanging to it as well. "Just fly the ship to where ever you please, I will leave and be out of your life as soon as we touch land again." The door closing gently this time, the runes spreading themselves over the door once more and did this time complete their intricate patterns, their goal and purpose to make those thing there was out, physical as well as magical, to stay out, and the tree creatures inside stay undisturbed inside.

Sugary winced and remained stunned as she slammed the door practically in his face, followed by her making use of the ship's conduit to quickly set up a barrier. "Uh oh... What did I do this time...?" He'd soon get his answer as Umbra peeked back out and gave her message, leaving him feeling like dirt as his ears drooped slightly and sighed. "So that was it... Dammit..."

He actually didn't know what to do right there and then, and eventually leaned on the wall next to the entrance as he contemplated for a time. He then remembered something he was supposed to talk over with someone later in the day before he needed to go anywhere. He thought he should at least share it with Umbra as he spoke to the door audibly, hoping she'd listen. "Umbra... I can't take you anywhere just yet; Not for today at least. I'm not sure if you saw, but I escorted a troupe of performers here for a play. They had one of their regulars sick though, and asked me if I could fill in for a small part while traveling here. I said I'd think about, though they said they can just have one of their own play several roles if I couldn't... The play is tonight. I'm gonna go see them later about it..." He then sighed again, hoping in the back of his mind she might at least come out because of the play, though he had doubts about that. "... Just thought you should know... I could just tell them no, and we can head out tonight though..." He wasn't sure what else to say, so he'd leave it at that, and waited for a response of any kind from the other side of the door... unless she peeked out again.

Like staring on a wall with drying paint did Sugary not really get anything worthwhile out of waiting on the other side of the door, the sound of the mare flopping hard down on one of the beds being the only thing he would get out of his gentlestallion gesture.

(Umbra are skipping a turn because of ze moods.)

Sugary patiently waited for more to happen than the sound of Umbra landing on her bed, but it seemed there was little else that would happen. He sighed, not having much else he could do, and made his way back to the kitchen. "Just know I'll be in the ship for quite a while... If you need something, just ask..."

He'd intended to clean up after them, washing anything that was used up and putting away uneaten food while munching on some of it himself, and once he was done there, he'd go over to the bridge to get out a map of the world and several smaller ones to a table and spend some time mapping out his intended next possible course, keeping his eyes and ears sharp for any signs he might be needed still by his guests.

Sighing and sulking, and for the first time that she knew of, being pitiful as well laid Umbra on the bed and stared at the pages of a random book she had found. The guardian golem acting as a book support, turning the pagers for Umbra at regular intervals as it was usually used to, while the other had worked slowly and calmly on one of the bones of its armour, spitting the brittle bone time and time again until it had a dozen fitting pieces each as sharp and thin as a needle. Taking the blanket that Umbra had ripped in two the night before sat it down and began slowly and steadily to mend it, the blanket ending up as good as new under its thorough care, the small creature humming a long deep tone that almost sounded more like rumbling than song.

Umbra did not know how long she had stared at the book, her tears having stopped long ago and been dried away as well, the only thing she knew was that the golem just had started the book anew for a second time just now, it turning the title page before it was stopped with a loud sigh. She did not know what there had come over her, she knew that she had been raised better than that, that what she had done was wrong and that Sugary wasn't to blame for her actions in any way. She knew that she should had laid plans earlier, that she should have found something to do by now, a goal of some sort, a new project, a big epic quest, just something to do instead of just doing nothing.

She had to admit that she had enjoyed doing nothing at first, maybe a bit too much, and that was perhaps why she had pushed the whole thing away, her always being on the road, having to move from one place to another, doing this and then that, her head seeing it as a vacation of sorts Her first vacation even. But that the vacation had taken over her life and made her push her future under the rug so she hadn't to look at it was not something Sugary should be punished for.

After having broken down the runic guard around the room made she the runes move around so they formed a new pattern, this not meant to hold something away and out, but bring something to her, a summoning circle. She needed something to write with, and to make up for her wrong did she also need some other things, her handbag of wonders soon turning up in the magical circle. The bag was rather ordinary looking, midnight blue leather and silver details, but when looking inside it was it not ordinary no more, it being one of the only handbags that actually contained everything inside of it.




With the clitter clatter of small clay feet and an off worldly fanfare announced the armoured golem itself to Sugary before entering the bridge, it standing up on its toes and waved around with its arms to make sure that Sugary were looking its way before it stepped inside, it carrying on its back a black envelope with golden filigree, and on it a wax seal and silken ribbons as well, no expenses having been spared. Half climbing half parkouring found the creature up on the map table, and with careful hands took it the envelope from its back and held it up, bending down on one knee as it waited on Sugary to accept its message. It bringing an apology for her hastily retreat and a request for her to see the play.

Sugary wasn't surprised to see the skeleton wearing golem come visit him as he was keeping an eye out, but was surprised by the gestures it made all the way through from its fanfare to its formal kneeling and delivery of the intricate letter. He was already smiling even before he opened the letter though as, while they may be just guardians, he was becoming fond of the polite and quirky skeleton golem more so than the other one by far, even so far as to say he felt more comfortable having just it as company than being alone on the bridge despite its appearance. "Thank you..." And so he took the letter and began to read after opening it very carefully.

As he read the letter, his smile broadened as he put the letter aside nearby and got himself a plain piece of paper, and wrote down on it. "Please wait a moment..." He didn't write for very long before he folded the paper once in half, and presented it to the golem. "Umbra really put in effort on her letter. Sorry this isn't as nice looking, but give her my reply with this. She can come out and talk to me whenever she feels ready."

Should the letter be given well, it would read as follows:

Dear Miss Umbra:

Apology accepted. I intend to remain on the bridge for a while longer setting up a course, and then I'll exercise on the deck. When lunch time comes, I hope you'll join me by then as I intend to go out to meet with those that asked for me to take part in their play afterwards. You may most certainly come with me even if I don't get the part to see the play, so I look forward to that.

P.S.: You might find some of my old books in your room since I didn't put them all back in mine. If you like adventure stories, I suggest reading Final Fantasy II: Rebellion of the Wild Roses.

Sincerely, Mr. Market~
