  1. Gabriel inclined in his seat, braiding his auburn hair. He was mentally connected to his ship, the Raven, Jeremy. He thought it would be fun to give the Raven a name like that and the Raven didn't mind. Jeremy actually quite liked his name, mostly because Gabriel gave it to him.

    Jeremy coasted through space, heading for a point where it would be safe for them to work together to jump into hyperspace. Gabriel thought of her, and Jeremy asked with a picture of the destination they had in mind if it was the person Gabriel was thinking of. Gabriel responded with a mental nod and Jeremy simply continued on his course, encouraged that they were headed in the right direction. Jeremy assured Gabriel that he could do the jump himself if Gabriel wanted to get lost in his thoughts. Gabriel took his offer and continued braiding his auburn hair.


    It was only an instant before they were both enveloped by the collective conscience of the Vell-Os, but he felt her, and he was enamored. After the war was over he went to Polaris space, he needed some time. He now feared it had been too long.

    He imagined what he would say to her, and what they would talk about, and before too long, they arrived. Jeremy parked outside the spaceport and informed Gabriel he would wait for him there. Gabriel nodded and went to the mirror, checking his reflection. His olive skin seemed out of place amidst his blue eyes and auburn hair, but he had all his life to get used to it and didn't notice it himself. He sucked on his teeth and took a few deep breaths, walking out to Jeremy's bay. He looked at the purple pulsing colors and looked down to Wolf 359.

    It was a start, and he hoped she was there, but wasn't too expectant. He formed a dart around his body and flew out of the bay, heading to the spaceport.

    The moment he landed he sent out a mental pulse, a query asking about the Vell Os that were there. He felt the familiar touch of Fllyraen and held his breath, waiting for more.
  2. It had been ages, since she had seen him. Although, after the war he had promised he'd come back? Though, where was he now? A deep sigh, would escape from her as Valiel looked down. Well, at least the garden is doing fine. She thought, as she knelt down her fingers tracing the delicate leaves that had moisture clinging to them. Normally, she hadn't felt as bad about him but, today was different. She was restless and usually, that often lead towards a bad day.

    Oh well, she might as well start working on the laundry. Perhaps, even cook a meal.. Alone, again. Entering the household, she'd pause at a familiar pulse.. It couldn't be him? Could it? She wondered yet, waited again to see if there was any more like it. So far, none.. Could it have been her imagination?
    Was she starting--, to become delusional after all this time? It entirely was possible, that she had.

    Hesitating, Valiel would send out her own in reply.. Waiting, hoping it hadn't been just a figure of her imagination. Listening, as the sounds around her were dulled. And the chores forgotten, she would stand utterly still hoping it was indeed him. Gabriel, the one her mind had relentlessly thought about. Even after, she tried her best to not loose hope.

    After all, not everyone could think happy thoughts after a war. For wars, took things most precious to you--, and kept it for themselves. One step, then another, her legs moving on their own as she edged towards the door though, she couldn't see anything she'd listen intensely.

  3. Gabriel felt the touch of Valiel's mind, familiar and warm, it comforted him, "Yes!" He said out loud to himself. He went to her mind, peering in, she had been waiting for him, she had a home, a garden, and a life here. A dart formed around him and he sped towards her home, too excited to send another thought out to her. There was a sonic boom and a pop as he bent space around him to get him to her sooner. Alarms went up from the world government and he could hear the concerned thoughts of the attacks, but he soothed them.

    Then he was at her door. The dart dissolved around him again and he breathed heavily, he held up his hand and froze, he was here, finally here, and all his planning had been for nothing. He had plunged ahead foolishly and forgotten all his plans and ideas. He opened and closed his fist until finally Jeremy intruded on his thoughts, Knock, damn you. He said. Gabriel chuckled, if Jeremy had a head, he would ba shaking it.

    Gabriel knocked and waited for her to answer, then he saw her, physically, for the first time, "I- Uhh I... Hi, I know you've never seen me before and I've never seen you, but we've met and... Ummm.... Hi... I'm Gabriel."
  4. Chuckling, as she listened to himself.. She couldn't help but well, pause. It was odd to hear his voice yet, it was even stranger when she heard the popping noise. She froze, he was actually here. She swallowed, as she waited for the knock.. It was a suspenseful moment that seemed to have lasted for hours yet, when the knock came she slowly opened the door before standing within the entrance. She kept her warm-smile of course, plastered to those lips of hers as she listened to him stumble over his words. "Well, that's true.. Gabriel." She began, her voice soft and as smooth as any caress. "My name is, Valiel."

    And with that, she would step aside as she motioned with her right hand welcoming her into her home. "Would you like to come in for some tea..? Or perhaps, something to eat?" She asked curiously though, she had to do her very best to not squeal or fling herself at Gabriel. After all, he had just come home after all of these long years. It had been dreadfully long, tilting her head she couldn't help but grin.

    Oh well, she was glad he was here now.. And that was really all that mattered to her at the moment. Lacing her fingers together, Valiel would quietly but, eagerly await for him to come inside so they could properly converse with one another. That is, if either of them could move from their spots.
  5. He swallowed hard as she invited him in and he walked in, "Tea and some food would be lovely, I love... Eating..." He said, restraining himself similarly to how she was restraining herself. Resisting the urge to jump in her mind and have it out right there as he looked deeply into her eyes. He saw her grin and breathed a relaxed sigh, feeling more at ease that she wasn't upset that he had been gone so long.

    He was back, back where it all started, the planet where he became a slave and then returned to free them all. He could think of no other mind he would rather be with. She was more comforting than the vastness of the Krypt mind. He wanted her, forever.

    He chewed on his thumb as he looked for a soft chair to sit down, on, settling on the sofa, not really aware of his surroundings, only aware of the mind he was with, the person. Valiel. He repeated the name to himself. Valiel.
