[Jae-Ha isn't sure how long he's been jumping. He's tried to stop a couple of times, seeking shelter in some areas and looking to reach out in others, but so far, his predecessor's words have been unfortunately true. There's not a single person who's been willing to look past his jumping, not one who's willing to take in a monster. He's incredibly hungry, and even if the full strength of this leg still feels amazingly new, he knows he's running low on steam there, too.

Large cities don't seem promising to him by now, and so he takes off in a more rural direction, passing farms and small towns until finally, he spots a young boy down below. That's enough to have Jae-Ha waiting out in this area for the next day at least, hidden in trees, behind buildings, wherever he can manage to spy. Some of it's exhaustion from searching for so long, and there's a part of him that wants to be cautious after so many rejections— but what he's really curious about is how this kid lives. Through whatever nerdy things Hazel ends up doing as Jae-Ha watches from afar, he decides that he's someone who might have a kind heart, and that he'd be easier to speak to than any of the adults. So, he finds some tree to sleep in until morning.

Finding Hazel alone in the middle of whatever errand or task he might be up to the next day, Jae-Ha falls from the sky in front of him and immediately drops to a knee as a sign of pleading. He's probably a horrible sight, beaten and bruised and dirty, but he's determined to make his case here despite that.]


I'll do whatever you want, so please let me stay with you. [Hmm, yes, that seems like a sensible first sentence to say to him. Eyebrows furrowed, he stares at Hazel's feet and waits.]

[It's lucky sometimes that Hazel often opts to go home alone after school instead of spending his afternoons with the other children. Usually he studies, but when Bishop Filbert is out on errands, it's up to Hazel to take care of the grounds around the church as best he can. He's tiny and whines about physical labor whether or not anyone is around to listen, so his chores could be going better... but he's doing them and that's what counts.

Right now he's trying to rake leaves, which looks absolutely ridiculous because the rake is bigger than he is, and he keeps tripping over it or hitting it against his head and grumbling at the leaves, irritated!! He wants to go back inside and read!

So it's when he takes a well-deserved break (maybe ten minutes in) and is leaning against the rake and sighing that a boy suddenly drops out the sky. Hazel doesn't hear a word he says, busy as he is yelping in shock and falling backwards to land in his tiny leaf pile. What's going on?! Is he being pranked, or attacked or something-?! Hurriedly he shoves a leaf out of his face to get a better look, and—it's just some boy? Some boy who's dirty and won't look him in the eye, and... hmm.

Okay, that'll pull at his heartstrings in a minute, but first,]
What kinda person just drops outta the sky? Look at my leaves now!

[hello]
sunspeck: (jk that's not why he not)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
[This filthy boy ruining his hard work and not even saying he's sorry! Hazel is affronted, honestly, for all of a couple seconds before he takes in all that dirt again, and the bruises he's just noticing now that he's really looking— ugh.

He scoffs, making a big show of getting back to his feet and brushing leaves off his clothes anyway. Mystery dirt boy needs to stay down there for a bit so Hazel can fold his arms and frown down at him, the one time he will ever feel tall.]


Nobody makes visitors do their yard work for 'em, don't be stupid. [baby steps...] What happened to ya?
sunspeck: (he doesn't have a nose in most of it)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
[He escaped... Hazel feels kind of stupid all at once, hearing that now and seeing that chain—he couldn't have noticed it before, could he? Did he just not notice this boy has a chain hanging from his wrist??

He's already bounced from shock to grumpiness and now he bounces right back into sputtering surprise, waving his hands at Mystery Boy like that will somehow make this less awkward.]


Okay! Okay, let's go inside before someone sees you! Don't wave that around—come on! [TAKE HIS HAND... TAKE BOTH OF THEM.]
sunspeck: (there it is)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
[He does offer his hand first, and grabs Jae-Ha's the moment he reaches out far enough. The rake and leaf pile are abandoned where they are as he immediately turns to quite literally pull Jae-Ha to his feet and toward the church house. He can't explain why he's doing this because lord knows he probably shouldn't be taking a filthy boy in chains who fell out of the sky into his house, but he can't seem to get past the desperate way he was just asked if he could stay.

So let's go, he'll drag Jae-Ha into the kitchen and direct him to sit on one of the wooden stools while he goes and gets... water?? A rag to clean him up??? How does he take care of another person, help.

He is literally already filling a bowl with water before he glances over his shoulder, now embarrassed about his rushing.]
You're not bleedin' or anythin', are ya? I'd have to go lookin' for the bandages.
sunspeck: (abrupt transition into anthology scans)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
[Hazel's brow furrows—what does he mean, he doesn't think so, that isn't helpful—but he just hums and goes back to filling this bowl. He supposes they should get the dirt off him first, since... honestly, since that's the only thing Hazel knows how to do without any help. What if Master doesn't like this, Hazel dragging home a stray boy, and makes him leave? Hazel doesn't think he would, but...

Okay, he really doesn't know what he's doing here. He turns too quickly away from the sink and sloshes some of the water out of the bowl, flinching at it splashing to the floor and just... pretending that didn't happen. He carries it over to the table to put it down, and tries not to look for too long at the cuffs on Jae-Ha's wrists as he dips a kitchen towel in the water. He's improvising.]


Hazel. What kind of a name is Jae-Ha? [for fuck's sake, bury him] I mean—you're not from around here.
sunspeck: (why he not.jpg)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 03:56 am (UTC)(link)
[Don't look at his spilled water!! He's spending way too long getting this towel wet and squeezing out the excess water, because how do you just go up to a boy and wipe his face ten minutes after meeting him under very weird circumstances...?]

Maybe because ya startle people tryin' to do their chores. [grumble mumble... he's still turning to Jae-Ha with the damp towel, finally, holding it up and hesitating.] Lemme get the dirt off your face.
sunspeck: (jk that's not why he not)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
[Wow, maybe he won't help!! Just kidding, he will, but since he's also a brat he probably sticks the towel abruptly against Jae-Ha's cheek a little too hard. Sorry.]

I could've left ya out there, so you're welcome. Now hold still.

[While he just cleans his face for him... this is fine.]
sunspeck: (he doesn't have a nose in most of it)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
[What a rude boy?? Hazel leans back to make a face at him, like come on, he already yelled about how no one can see Jae-Ha, why would he go and tell anyone else! But he'll continue his clumsy ministrations until he's so harshly judged.]

I'm doin' it just fine! Maybe if ya weren't runnin' your mouth I wouldn't keep hittin' the bruises!

[Which, hmm. They can probably just never talk about those ever? Sounds great.]
sunspeck: (there it is)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 05:09 am (UTC)(link)
Don't be stupid—ya can't just- just show up in people's yards like that!

[He's not afraid... but he lets Jae-Ha take the towel anyway, turning away to shift the bowl of water to a slightly different spot so he has something else to look at.]

How do we get those things off your hands?
sunspeck: (that is okay)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 05:33 am (UTC)(link)
Like, with a rock or somethin'? [That's rhetorical, of course he'd break them with a rock or something, how else could you even possibly break off metal cuffs? How silly.

But, uh. Hmm. He looks away from the bowl to give Jae-Ha another look like he really... doesn't understand a thing this guy is saying.]


No...? I'll get ya a cup, hang on. Just keep—doin' that.

[Excuse him while he goes to get a glass of water so Jae-Ha doesn't drink out of the bowl like a dog??]
sunspeck: (what happened to you hazel)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 05:42 am (UTC)(link)
[Look at this thirsty boy. If only Hazel knew what a prophetic moment this was. He's back to just standing there awkwardly watching Jae-Ha, though—he's taken care of making him look a little less horrible, so now what? Should be put him to bed? He doesn't know how to make soup that well, but do you make soup for tired and hurt people or just sick people??]

Mm. [someone guide him.... he looks down.] ...What happened to your foot?
sunspeck: (why he not.jpg)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 05:50 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh—uh, he didn't mean to scare him by asking that?? Nearly dropping the cup startles him, so at least he looks up from Jae-Ha's very mysterious foot. Should he be worried about this...]

Are ya... sick?

[is it the gangrene]
sunspeck: (there it is)

[personal profile] sunspeck 2016-11-24 05:59 am (UTC)(link)
With a funny leg? [He should brush up on his bedside manner, but look, Jae-Ha's foot is green or something and that is a legitimate concern. Now Hazel is looking at him a little more warily, hands tightening around the cup. The rest of Jae-Ha looks... normal, so...

Can people really be born with green feet? He'll have to look it up later—and it occurs to him the moment he thinks as much that he's not even considered that Jae-Ha could be dangerous. He's bruised and dirty and looks kind of scared every time Hazel looks at him, or at least that's what Hazel thinks, so how could he be dangerous?

He doesn't look like a monster, so... Hazel puts the cup down on the table, next to the bowl. He scratches his cheek, awkwardly, considering.]
Well—are ya hungry?
