intraspective: (who I am)
[personal profile] intraspective
Ino was in a fairly decent mood all things considered. The day had started off rather… rocky, with Liir being angry, but she’d taught him to meditate, then had to deal with the mess of him leaving his body but a visit with A.J. had left her happier.

Now though, she was lying on her bed, hair loose and going through the last few pages of one of Kabuto’s old personal medical notebooks. She’d have to return it when she was done… Ino eyed it. Maybe she wouldn’t finish it today? Put it off…

She huffed. She’d give it back when she felt like it, done or not. Maybe she just wouldn’t tell him she was finished with it. Serve him right, or something.

Turning the last page, her eye caught the inscription on the back cover and she paused, eyes widening. In his neat calligraphy, were the words ‘This book is the property of:’ and his name had a line through it. Her name was written under his.

It wasn’t his notebook anymore. It was hers. Hers. She didn’t have to return it. Was… was this his hint?

Hugging the notebook to her, carefully though so not to damage the pages, Ino rolled over and stared at the ceiling. Her mind attempting to put that together with everything else. Her notebook. Not his.

What did that mean?

[Door is closed but entirely knockable, post is open!]

There was a knock at the door.

And so it opened and Michael came in, looking... not entirely happy.

"Hi, Ino. Heard you went to see my sister."

He stayed standing in the doorway, only moving forward enough to close it behind him.

"And what, exactly, did you tell her?"

"Didn't say much, and I figure the squirrels got it wrong, because they said you told her I thought nobody'd care if I died."

"Good", he said flatly. "So what did you say?"

"Ino. Tell me. What you said. Or I go ask her."

"Thank you", he said ironically, eyes still hard. "Don't you ever do something like that again."

"I don't like people going behind my back", he snapped, "and I don't like people knowing stuff about me I didn't tell them. This is my life, Ino! Not yours!"

"And now she probably thinks I'm gonna, gonna turn myself in if there's ever heat on them, or something!" Never mind that he probably would, if it looked like working. "God, now I'm remembering why I liked being a loner."

"I don't want anyone to worry about me", he retorted. "I'm doing fine, and I don't need you going to my big sister or anyone else behind my back!"

"Well, it works for me!" he roared back. The room started, very gently, to rattle.

"Then just keep it to yourself! And stay away from my family, Ino, because I don't need you going and making them think it's worse than it is when things were going along just fine without you interfering!"

On the last word, her hair ties exploded out of wherever they were kept, flying at her in a cloud.

"No, I can't!" he snarled. "But I can tell you to keep your nose the hell out of my business. And I'll tell you something else, sweetheart - if it's gonna upset you every time you get reminded I'm screwed, then maybe you should go back to Kabuto, or you're in for a world of upset!"

"There's no point!" he screamed back at her. "It's what it is - you are who you're brought up!"

"I'm not scared of anything!" His eyes were blazing, now... until they suddenly widened in alarm.

Just as all the mirrors in the room exploded.

Michael was backing away towards the door, pale and visibly shaken.

"This is what happens when I get mad. You see, now? You need to keep away."

"Then if I hurt you or..." He couldn't finish that, and turned to open the door. "Remember I warned you."

He wasn't looking at her, though he paused at what she said about Kabuto, obviously considering turning back, but then shook his head slightly.

"On your head be it."

And he was gone, heading for the lonely parts of the shore. He felt the need to expend his power until there was nothing left.
