He didn't know how long he had been sitting there for. It felt like five minuets but was probably an hour. The cool night air filled his senses as the stars above him twinkled delicately. But the feeling uneasiness washed over his aching body from the thought of what horrendous wonders laid behind the wall of beautiful stars. It was like a mask covering up the truth of what really lay beyond the depth of space. He really needed this time to himself. Although five years in prison all alone made him fearful of being in a quite place, his feelings needed time to recuperate from the prior events. Slowly he stood up, averting his gaze from the glistening stars to his his shattered helmet.
Gary walked away, his mind flooding with more than he could handle. He had no idea where he would go or what he would do. All he knew was that he needed to stay occupied.
He wasn't looking where he was walking since head space was cluttered with thoughts and worries. He never got a chance to get to know his new surroundings very well due to his lack of interest. His stomach hurt from the stab, and his head hurt from all of his intense thinking. Without even noticing, he walked right not a medal pole that was positioned in front of him. The pain wasn't so bad compared to what he had to deal with earlier, so with a quick rub to his forehead, he trudged off once more. It wasn't until he passed an open balcony area of the ship like the one he was previously in did he snap out of his thoughts.
Someone was standing out on the balcony, their head raised to the starry sky and their arms crossed and leaning on the trailing. He hadn't talked to anyone since the fight with the Lord Commander, and whoever this person was, he needed someone to talk to, even if it was a random stranger. He approached the new person, who seemed short. Their attire was fairly small since their figure was petite.
It was a female, and her brown wavy hair was pulled up into a tight pony tail held up by what looked to be a metal yellow hairband. Their suit was a teal colored infinity guard suit, and their gloves boots and belt were a purple color.
As he stepped closer to the person, they spoke. "I'm glad your awake. You had us all worried for a second."
She turned her head to him, revealing two pink marks on her cheeks that resembled triangles. Her eyes were brown her her smile was small but prominent. She seemed young, maybe in her early teens or so.
Gary felt so confused as to why a teenager would be wearing an infinity guard suit, but he held his questions back as he leaned on the railing next to her.
"The name's Blue by the way." She extended her hand, her smiling growing.
"I'm Gary." He shook her hand, thinking strangely about her name.
"I know. H.U.E told me."
"Oh, I see you've met him." Yeah, I feel bad for him though. He seemed to like his old body so much better." She said conversationally, playing with the rims of her left glove that seemed to have been torn.
"Is that your real name?" Gary suddenly blurted out unconventionally due to the strange name the girl had given him.
She stayed quiet for a moment before answering, "It's what people call me." She seemed to not want to answer his initial question. He let it slide, not wanting to bother her about it.
Blue shifted her gaze back to at the stars, her eye lids closing halfway. She had bags under her eyes, and she seemed tired.
"Hey, can I ask a question?" Gary asked.
"You already did." Blue laughed.
He rolled his eyes. "I mean, you seem so young, what's with the-"
