PostSubject: Why do you care so much? (Proxy)   Tue Mar 21, 2017 4:20 pm

Karla was furious, deeply and completely furious. The anger burned bright within her, hot like the heart of a forge, molten like melting steel. She made the mistake of glancing back and seeing Ethan plant a kiss on one of the other girls. It had been a cruel blow, like a mighty curtain wall or tower crashing down due to it being undermined. Yet, Karla cunningly or cruelly still planned to go ahead with the meeting. Officially the pair of them would still discuss literature but in reality, Karla was to confront him over his actions. She would demand answers, he would provide them to her or...
Or what? Karla did not know what she might do then. Probably let him go, move on with her life having learned a valuable lesson in trust, particularly when it came to males.

The daughter of the Goddess of Wisdom stood atop a pile of rocks, one leg further up on the highest rock, giving her the appearance of some regal liege or warlord. Her long hair billowed down from her head, loose, fluttering like a ginger cloak in the breeze coming from the lake. The demigod wore blue demin shorts with black leggings and a blue and white checkered shirt. Karla was certain he would still come, his kind always came. They thought that they might manage to claim more girls hearts... Karla would show him, she would show him. How dare he think he could get away with such behaviour?
Did he lack any morals? Was his moral compass shattered? How many others had he attempted to lure in over the years? Karla's defences like her blood happened to be up, she was prepared for whatever horrors might come her way.

But a small voice whispered in the back of her head, telling her to calm down. Yet, such a voice was ignored and shunted to the back of her mind to be ignored.

As promised, the son of Triton had arrived, sporting a red snapback this time, with a teal colored tank top, faded blue shorts, and light brown loafers. It was a nice evening; the sun was out, the lake was filled with the sounds of birds chirping and an occasional splash as fish visited broke through the top of the water, only to quickly submerge once more. It was a great even indeed and, he knew, his evening was about to get even better.

The short redhead was within his view as soon as he arrived. He chuckled quietly to himself as he approached her, thinking of a few jokes he could say, and a comment about the setting that she chose to meet in. The younger twin thought that, if you were going to discuss literature, the library would be more appropriate than the lake.

“Hey, Karla.” Ethan greeted, a lopsided grin on his face as he neared her. “You know, a lake’s usually where people go to enjoy a nice swim instead of discussing literature.” He scanned the top of the lake, wondering if she had an ulterior motive for choosing this over a library. “Are we going for a swim?”

Karla tried her best to hide her anger, to disguise it behind a mask of disinterest. However, her fury could not be denied, it blazed in her eyes as well as in the stiffness of her movements. She took a deep breath in a desperate attempt to compose herself when she heard footsteps behind her, followed by the familiar voice speak. Emotions of hurt and betrayal flooded her system, adding strength to her conviction. Karla hated the pain it brought, it made her feel weak, vulnerable, an easy target. She could not allow that to stand, would not. Karla would master the pain, she could tolerate no weakness.

She turned to face him, there was no warmth in her gaze apart from the cold fury. The daughter of Athena did not even give him the decency of a greeting. "You kissed her." She said, her voice quiet. She swallowed, repeating it but louder and with more venom. "You kissed her!" The red head took a step towards him, not intimidated by his height. "Is this some kind of game to you? You meet up with girls and try to tick them off like countries in Risk?" She swept on carried by her fury to the next sentence. "Well let me tell you something mister." Karla pointed a finger at him, shaking it. "Nobody and I mean nobody is going to use me as goal in some manner of sick deceitful game! How could you even do that? Arrange to be with a girl and then kiss someone else entirely?" Karla stopped, panting, the excess of her anger expended for now as she struggled to regain some of her stern stoicism as she was renown for.

Ethan blinked, obviously a little confused as to why this daughter of Athena was yelling at something he had done with someone. It seemed to him that she was becoming a bit too flustered for something that had nothing to do with her. He backed up a few steps as she confronted him, a bit unprepared for a confrontation. He thought they were going to have a relaxed hang out. He cleared his throat as he began to eye the short redhead, a little upset at the sudden confrontation.

“Why do you care?” The question was short and simple, but also addresses why it was any of her business to begin with. “I kissed someone. So what?” he crossed his arms, instinctively chewing on his lower lip as he awaited her answer. They weren’t an item, or, at least he thinks they weren’t. Well, they weren’t.

His response seemed to catch Athena unawares, for the moment taking the wind out of the sails of her argument and fury. Karla searched for the words to reply, hating how her anger deserted her leaving her only with the overwhelming sensation of shame. "Because you came across like a nice guy... Someone different, someone actually worth knowing." She said in a much quieter and softer tone than the one she had previously been using. "You were kissing a girl so she obviously means something to you." Kissing was a difficult topic for Karla since she possessed zero experience in the matter as she did not allow others to get close enough to her.
She did not appear to be about to apologise for her actions, that would mean admitting that she was wrong about something. Such an action would be a dangerous precedents to set, as others might see it as justification of her being wrong on other matters. Karla could not tolerate any flaws or weaknesses in her character or anything which she did.
Her anger vanished utterly and she turned and sat down near the peak of the pile. "Perhaps you should go." She suggested quietly, staring out across the water as if it held the answers to her problems not to mention her personal torment.

It wasn’t long before Ethan understood why the daughter of Athena was in such rage over his actions; she had the idea that they were starting the foundations of a relationship, or that’s what he assumed, anyway. The son of Triton stood there, thinking of something to say that Karla would be able to understand, or, at least inform her that there were different meanings to things that people do. Regardless of whether he had done something wrong or not, her words cut deep, meaning that it hurt to think that she was upset at him because of something wrong he had done.

“Karla,” he began by addressing her, with a quiet tone. “I am a nice guy.” Ethan began searching for more words, being as sincere as he could be. If only his brother were here to translate what he meant. “Kissing someone is… just that. Kissing.” It was a lame explanation. His older brother would have probably described kissing to be a physical act, one that could have many meanings and could be interpreted in different ways, which meant that the kiss could have been simply that. A kiss. But Ethan was not his brother, so, his explanation sucked.

Ethan slowly approached Karla, taking a seat beside her on the ground. Even though she was elevated, since she sat on a rock, he was able to see her face, only having to slightly tilt his head upward to do so. “I’m sorry if I upset you.” There wasn’t much else he could do but apologize, even though he wasn’t apologizing for the act itself.

A part of Karla willed herself to be able to believe his words and find some manner of faith in them, where as another part of her wished for demigod to simply hold her ground for not greater reason than personal pride. She had never kissed anyone, but literature and the few friends she possessed put greater emphasis upon kissing than Ethan did. To Karla it was a show of affection rather than a mere kiss. She was aware of his approach, Karla remained seated, unmoving, not taking her eyes off of the distant bank of the lake. He apologised to her, Karla turned to regard him, her eyes flashing with varying different emotions. He apologised, something which Karla would never do.
"Okay, I accept." Karla forced a thin smile though she did not feel like smiling. Few people tended to apologise when she became upset with them.

Even though he noticed the forced smile Karla showed, he smiled regardless. He wasn’t very good at understanding emotions. His brother was more cut out for that type of stuff than he was, but the younger twin would have to try his best today. “May I ask why you were so bothered with my kiss?” he asked, his eyes now taking in the view of the lake, allowing her discretion. He realized that, if someone were to look at one’s face when answering a delicate question, it would make said person uncomfortable. So, he gave her space and allowed her to answer when she was ready.

“I’m just wondering, since you seem bothered by it.”

The short redhead was for a long time silent, just when it looked like she would not be providing him with an answer, Karla spoke. "I don't know." She kept the truth of the matter to herself, kept it private and locked away. She did not want him to get close to her, just in case the worst happened to him. She was not in a position to tell him the truth about why it bothered her, Karla found it difficult to accept even in her own head, let alone offer such a truth to the demigod in question. He brought about feelings and emotions she attempted to keep buried. They wrecked logic and could not be clarified or reasoned. Karla had never ever been in a relationship with anyone, boy or girl, though she was only into the former, not the latter.
Karla did not offer any other explanation, nor did it appear one would be forth coming any time soon. She in turn decided to ask one of her own to him, she glanced at him for a few seconds before inquiring. "Was she your girlfriend?"
