[No, it probably isn't the best time to talk to Near about going home, but Mel can't sleep, and she's been feeling the urgency of the need to return to their world, and finish Kira, and guarantee everyone's safety, ever since the futures room. She's just been... sidetracked. But she and Mail have been researching magical travel, and she knows she ought to at least see if Near will come home with them, sooner rather than later. So she tries to make herself look as normal as possible, and goes across the hall and knocks on his door.]

Near? Are you there?

[Near's voice, muffled through the locked door:]

Who is it?

Date: 2008-10-26 05:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
It's Mel, I want to talk to you.

[A brief pause, then:]

What's the passcode?

*She sighs, and mutters it.* Gertruda.

[Another pause, then Near's voice comes through the door once again:]

And the second part?

For the love of- Christopher. Near, you know it's me.

You of all people should know, Mel, that we can't afford to let our guard down in a place like this.

[He unlocks the deadbolt on the door and opens it a crack, security chain still latched. He blinks at Mel's other-than-human appearance.]

You look terrible.

Date: 2008-10-26 05:52 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
I feel terrible. Let me in.

Date: 2008-10-26 05:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
Yes, and I'm not going to say anything until I'm in. You of all people should appreciate that.

[He stares at her for another long second, then closes the door, unlatches the chain, and pulls the door open to admit her into the room.]

Come in.

*She steps around him and sits in the desk chair with her legs tucked under herself as usual.*

Mail and I are going home soon.

[Near closes the door behind them, locks all the locks again, and shuffles over to the half-finished card tower on the table on the opposite end of the room.]

Are you sure it's wise to travel in your ... condition, Mel?

Date: 2008-10-26 06:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
*She rolls her eyes.*

After we fix this, and after we get the spell ready. Are you-

Damn it, Near. I came to ask you to come with us.

[He pauses, back to Mel, facing his card tower, cards in hand.]

I see.

[He glances back over his shoulder at her.]

What's wrong with you?

Date: 2008-10-26 10:16 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
*She sighs, shifting in the seat, halfway into a L-like position, hugging her knees.*
The mansion thought it'd be awfully cute to make me a vampire.

I just ate. I'm not going to bite you.

[Near moves a little too quickly while his head is turned to watch Mel, and his hand brushes the card tower and sends the cards swirling down around the desk and the floor. He stares down at the scattered cards, silent for a long moment.]

How long have you been like this?

Date: 2008-10-27 01:11 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
Like this, almost a week. Not... normal for longer than that. It was a room.

Date: 2008-10-27 01:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] nearly-subtle.livejournal.com
You don't suppose the effects will be permanent?

Date: 2008-10-27 01:29 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
I don't think so. I think it's the mansion's idea of a Halloween joke. And if not... I can talk to God.

From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
Mail says there's a version of you who's God in his world. *She reaches for where her rosary should be, and sighs when she remembers it's not there.*

Date: 2008-10-27 02:19 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] nearly-subtle.livejournal.com
Interesting.

[The slight trace of a grin flits across Near's face, then it's gone. He turns to the scattered cards and begins retrieving them from the floor and the table, setting them in a neat pile.]

You said you wanted to ask me something?

Date: 2008-10-27 02:51 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] chilichoc.livejournal.com
*She ignores the grin, because if she took too much notice of it, she'd get annoyed.*

Yeah. Will you come home with us? We can work the spell to bring you too.
