it's a pointless resistance for you

David's face lit up when she mentioned treats for the two of them, and he couldn't help the curious peer he made into the basket when she opened it. Roxanne smiled and let go of David, grabbing the bag for her and thanking Roselynn. David did the same, cupping his hands and letting the bag be set in between the large palms. He looked into the bag, attention now on the treats. Roxanne chuckled.

"We're doing great, thank you. And, ah, thanks for the treats." She turned her smile onto Roselynn and held her bag close to her chest. "Nice to meet you, Rosie. Oh, these smell delicious."

David took a cookie out of the bag and chomped on it, looking up to Roselynn and humming in response, letting her know that he did, indeed, enjoy them. He noticed Jerome out of the corner of his eye and he turned to face him, waving a massive hand above his head, casting a rather long shadow that he was sure would have reached for miles if it could. Roxanne ducked behind David upon seeing Jerome and came around to his other side, studying the other with curiosity and weariness.

It was not that she didn't trust Jerome, of course. She knew he was safe, but she still had her reasons. She waved to Jerome as he made his way over, and while he and Roselynn talked, got into her own bag. They were very good, she had to admit, brows raising in surprise at the flavour that hit her tongue. David put his bag in his pants pocket so he wouldn't eat all the treats right away, and Roxanne followed suit with putting her treats into her jacket pocket.

David did not have the best smell sometimes, but the scent of the baked goods could hit his nose strongly. His mouth watered and he poked his head out of his door, trying to pinpoint where the smell was. Behind him, his daughter looked up from her book she was reading, asking him what he was looking outside for.

"There's a smell," David hummed, stepping back and closing the door most of the way. "It smells nice."

"Unless you mean cow shit, it don't smell no different." She huffed and pulled back to her book.

"Roxanne, watch your language." David turned a stern glance towards his daughter, brows pinched.

She rolled her eyes and pulled her knees closer, flipping the page of her book before hesitating. "Wait, it does smell nice." She stood up, placing a piece of paper she was using as a bookmark in between the pages and closing the book.

David opened the door again and stepped out onto the porch, deciding to sit down on the chair he had found. He crossed his legs and leaned back in the chair, using the foot on the porch to rock the chair. Roxanne closed the door behind her, sitting on the step. She glanced up and down the road a few times, almost as if waiting for an ice cream truck.

David saw Roselynn walking down with a basket, noticing the smell coming from her. He sat up and leaned against the porch railing, trying to decide if he should call out to her or stay. Roxanne stood up and waved to Roselynn, greeting her as she passed. With her dad at her side, Roxanne felt safe to greet people. She turned to her dad and smiled wide, David's attention being caught by that beaming smile and he smiled back and stood up, having to duck his head to avoid hitting it against the porch ceiling.

He headed down the steps, the wood creaking under his weight as he passed by, ready to break if blown at, but holding on. Even as Roxanne's heavy boots she stumbled into before heading down the steps refused to break down the rotting wood. David greeted Roselynn, slowing down as he came towards her, hoping he didn't look intimidating. Roxanne stood behind him, folding her arm under his and playing with her hands.

"Hi there," he stuck his hand out, then hesitated and relaxed his hands when he noticed how tense they looked. "I'm David, this is my daughter, Roxanne. I- I noticed the basket. Thought you'd like help. If you wanted." He offered, brows pinching upwards as he tried to soften his expression.

Roxanne waved from behind David.

Killing another person was always the hardest. It always made people change. Blood on someone's hands would happen one day. In David's case, his teeth were the ones covered in blood. His giant hands never hurt a person, but his teeth, though dull, caused so much damage. He broke someone's hand. He shattered their fingers and would have lunged again if they had disappeared shortly after the bite. David was labelled aggressive. He was not aggressive.

He was just afraid.

David had left after dinner to go sleep, having been exhausted all day. He had been trying to get Oasis used to other people, but it seemed she was just as stubborn as he was, and twice as untrustworthy. She would try to stomp anyone near her, but her rider and his daughter. She protected the two, like a dog. David was sure there was a joke hidden somewhere in that fact. He was walking back past the fire when he noticed the two van den Bergh brothers.

Looking around for a brief moment to see if Brock was near by, David decided he was okay and headed over to the two, looming behind them before bringing his hands to his chest and wringing his fingers together. He slouched, trying to make himself seem less imposing as possible, before finally deciding to crouch. He figured that neither brother would enjoy turning around and seeing a giant, seven and something foot tall mountain of a man standing above them. At least when he crouched, he was relatively the same height they were sitting down.

"Everything okay?" He asked, trying to sound as soft as he could. He didn't want to scare them, either, with his usually loud voice.

//cw for mentions of abduction

The look on his father's face the day he was diagnosed was one David would never forget. His father did not hate him, he knew it, but he was disappointed. He still played with him, would teach him to play baseball, and taught him how to read. His father was a good man, but there was still that disappointment David saw on his face whenever he would have a meltdown, or when he'd shake his hands to relieve emotions building up in his chest that just grew too much. Any time David would hum or sing, or when he would shout.

David did not hate his father, and he knew his father did not hate him. He never grew up with a cold shoulder, until he was just breaching adulthood. How someone could manage to take a tall, lanky adult from his house was surprising, especially from your own brother's house. David had grown up with a cold person then, with cold eyes and cold hands and a cold voice. David hated every second of it, and when he finally managed to see the sun again, he refused to go anywhere near his father.

It was not his dad's fault that his brother looked so much like him.

David had grown cold himself, sometimes. He's turned to asserting himself when things go awry. He couldn't just say "no". He had turned to more violent options when he ran out of things to make people stop. He couldn't get the feeling of shattering someone's finger with his teeth out of his mouth for weeks. It was not the first time, and it wouldn't be the last.

He felt like a monster sometimes. He felt like no one would ever look at him like a human being if he tried to fight back. He wanted nothing more than peace. He wanted to just relax, and to feel safe. Alexandra, despite being a town opposite of what he wanted, made him feel the most safe he ever had. He knew, despite the town being full of heartless creatures, they would protect their own when it came down to it. David felt like they wouldn't let anyone get away with hurting a member.

He liked that.

David was across the street with his daughter, talking to her about Oasis' progress, and about possibly finding a horse for her. Roxanne's face visibly wrinkled, but what she said went unheard as JP greeted the newcomer on her donkey. Roxanne snorted and put her hand over her mouth and looked away, avoiding David's very upset look. "Rox," he huffed towards her and his daughter didn't look at him.

"Hi there," David turned his attention to the new girl and gently nudged Roxanne's elbow so she knew he was leaving. She followed closely as he headed over to the two. "Hi," he greeted the donkey, giving Jimmy's nose a small pat. "I'm David," he greeted, sticking his hand out. "This is my daughter, Roxanne."

"'Sup."

David had woken from a brief nap, having been up rather early with Oasis, training her her with getting used to him, being ridden, and working. She had gotten used to him nearly right off the bat, finally agreeing with the fact that she must have been tame before she broke into the farm. She still didn't like him being out of her sight and often watched him, making him wonder about where she had come from. He stumbled towards the saloon, aching for a drink, when he happened across JP.

David let the man go in first, and followed after, studying him. He was new, David came to the conclusion. He got a glass of juice and sat down, taking a sip before noticing Cassidy enter. He looked awfully sweaty, and David would hate to feel the same. He didn't like the feeling of sweat on his skin. He'd rather be getting frostbite and not realize it than to be sweaty.

At the question about the lighter, David shook his head and showed his empty, large hands. He had nothing but the glass of juice between them.

David could feel a sense of dread pouring into him as Brock's voice began to rise. He knew it was not his fault, but David still felt a sense of guilt and he covered his ears to block out the man's yells. The firing of his gun made David flinch, his knee hitting the table and his elbows thumping against the side of the table top. Roxanne reached across but David flinched away. He hated the loud noise. He hated the yelling and the violence.

Roxanne glared at Brock as he passed by, not an ounce of sympathy came from the teenager as he hobbled out of the door. She turned her attention back to her father and carefully pat his arm, making sure he knew she was there and was trying to help him relax. David grumbled and shakily removed his hands, but quickly covered his ears back up at the sound of the woman crying. He tensed up further, until Roxanne couldn't even get him to budge. She sighed and stood up, heading over towards the woman and Cassidy.

"I'll help," she insisted.

David's brow slightly cocked when Roman hesitated. He had never seen him do that. David adjusted his grip on the saddle horn and pat Oasis' neck when her ears folded back at the sight of Cassidy's horse. She adjusted her shoulders but David turned her head from the horse so she couldn't turn or face Bella.

"Are you sure?" He asked, brows pinched and raised. "I wouldn't mind, and I'm sure Cassidy wouldn't mind either?" The large man glanced at Cassidy briefly.

Oasis snorted and lowered her head to search for grass or something she could eat, stepping forward before she raised her head and began throwing it and giving it a good shake. David had to hold onto the horn to stay as the force made her body move. He pat her neck and she snorted and pawed at the ground, wanting to go.

The explosion was more than enough to send the man scrambling. He covered his ears and let out a loud shout in the meantime, startled by the sudden noise. He didn't like it. David lifted his head, feeling frustrated and angry as more noises followed suit, and with Brock's horse suddenly swallowing the light filtering in through the front window. There had to be an attack, David realized quickly and shakily. There had to be. He stood up, his legs felt like jelly. He didn't want to be here. His stomach twisted and he put his hand over his mouth before he breathed through his nose slowly. Roxanne had come sprinting down the stairs, panic in her eyes.

"Dad!" She shouted, and David let out a noise which was quickly drowned out by the sound of a bullet whizzing through the window and barely hitting David. Roxanne ran back upstairs, quickly finding a bat she had managed to steal and came back down, testing the weight in her hands. David studied her with fear in his eyes and she smiled at him. "I've got ya, pa." She turned and ran out the front door, finding the one who shot through their window and swinging the bat.

David turned from the window and looked around for something, anything he could use to protect himself. "Rox-" He mumbled, trying to get her to return. He didn't like her being outside. "Roxanne!"

She did not come back.

David happened to notice Roman just as he noticed the large man, and a smile came to the rider's face. "Mornin'," he greeted. With the last bit, David couldn't help but let out a laugh, smiling down at Oasis and patting her neck. "I don't mind bein' up in the mornings. It's a nice, quiet time for Oasis and I to bond. I'd usually be back in bed by now, but I thought it'd be nice to see if anyone else is up to join. You want to come with?" He asked.

This was probably the most the large man had spoken to Roman, but he had obviously gotten a lot more comfortable since joining. He felt he could finally take a breath. He adjusted his position in the saddle, and Oasis stomped her back hoof into the ground. With the sound of another horse approaching, Oasis' head reared up and her ears swung back, eyeing around for the other horse. David pat her neck and looked over his shoulder, seeing Cassidy on Bella. The larger man smiled at him.

"I was just asking if Roman wanted to join in a ride- you want to come with?" He asked, playing with Oasis' reins.

Bluestem Prairie / LIKE REAL PEOPLE DO ― horse riding, open
« on: February 10, 2021, 07:33:00 PM »
it is empty achilles, so end it all now
it's a pointless resistance for you

David was often afraid of riding horses―the feeling of being up so high made him queasy, but he found that with Oasis, he could be calm. He gently pat her neck as he had said draft horse trot along a trail, her tail swishing as she kept up a nice, even pace. The sun had just started to rise, leaving a peaceful lighting across the plains. He enjoyed this. It was quiet. No one was awake just yet, so it felt like he had the whole world to himself. David leaned back in the saddle a little, letting out a soft sigh of relief.

It was all so much, all so soon. his daughter's return, becoming council―it was almost too much on the man. Though, he handled it well. He knew that he'd be used to it eventually. He felt pride swell in his massive chest as he thought about it a bit longer; he would be able to handle this. He has his daughter, and he's seen in Brock's good books. He was safe, and his bad luck was over. For now. It sat away from him, festering in its corner, waiting for a time to strike again. This time, though, David had his walls built up pretty high and pretty strong from the frothing creature. Bad luck would not strike him again any time soon.

Especially not with his baby and Brock on his side.

David shielded his eyes with his hand as the trail turned him towards the sun, the yellow beams making him squint and turn his head. He decided to turn Oasis around to head towards the town to see if anyone had woken up yet, and to see if anyone would be awake to join him.

David was not one of the first to show up, rather stumbling in, looking tired. His hair was more messy than usual and dark circles lined his eyes. He had slept in, seeming much more foggy than usual. The only normal thing about him was that Roxanne was at his side, sticking very close to his arm and holding hers around his forearm. It seemed less of her following him, and more of her leading him, as his feet dragged on the ground and he could hardly keep his rather massive head up. She lead him to a different seating area, as their usual spot was taken, and set David down slowly in a chair. She sat down in her own and crossed her arms.

David lifted his head when his forehead touched the table, swinging back and barely keeping his head up. He reached a hand up and rubbed at his eyes, struggling to remain conscious. Normally his confusional arousal wouldn't be as noticeable, but today of all days seemed to be the worst. He was exhausted.

David wasn't one for war either; he very much appreciated being able to sit on the side and do his own thing. Though, seeing Cass sitting by the general store and casually strumming his guitar, he couldn't help but hum to the few notes played. He headed over to Cassidy and stood by him, drumming his fingers on his arm casually, slowly inching closer to the younger man. By the time his inching had stopped, he was standing practically right beside the kid. The guitar was a nice instrument, David had always appreciated the gentle strums of a classic guitar.

"You're good," David hummed, slowly sitting himself down on the ground beside the Van de Berg. One thing David was grateful for- Cassidy was not his father.

// slight tw for mentions of abduction

David himself wasn't one for Christmas, either. For his childhood, it was mostly fog. He could not remember anything about what his childhood Christmas was like, and when he was a teenager, most of his days were spent in the dark. Quite literally. He hated thinking about it, it brought him so much pain to think about. He refused to think about how Roxanne was taken- about what she had to endure. He knew his own time was hard enough, he refused to think about his daughter going through the same. After she was declared missing, Christmas grew harder for David. Her birthday, Christmas, Halloween. All of it. And with the blackout on top, it just wasn't the same anymore, and he just lost interest in all of it. He'd cry and beg for her to return, but only to be replied with nothing.

But joining Bluestem seemed to be an honest miracle, with Roxanne stumbling across the group, and him finding her. They were safe together, at last, and that's all David ever wanted. This would be her first Christmas back with him, and while he had blocked the joy out, it would be emotional for him. For her. David wanted to make it special for her this year. Extra special. He could hear hammering and, covering his ears, the large man went to investigate. Was Brock putting up more chores?

Upon stumbling across Roman hammering up a wreath and Toni offering to help, David felt obliged. "I can help. I can put things up in high places." He offered, taking his hands off his ears.

David had been shopping for Roxanne; her shirt, though his, was holey and falling apart. He had a shirt currently wrapped over his arm, heading down the street when he noticed a newcomer. He smiled to her and waved, then looked to Brock with a sort of unease. The man still scared David. He stayed a bit out of their way, but close enough to be involved, far enough to not be if they didn't want him to be. There was always something about Brock that, no matter what he did, there was always some thought contradicting what he was thinking. There was always something there. Always. Vicious or not, the thought never paired the smile - and if it did, David felt truly afraid. He rubbed a bicep and adjusted the shirt across his giant forearm, using his free hand to brush hair out of his face.

"My name's David," he greeted her. "I live just down the road. Me and my daughter, Roxanne."

Hearing Jamie's voice, David's head shot up to study the Van de Bergh, and the smiled wide upon seeing him. He stood up and dusted off his pants and put his hand on Oasis' nose and she snorted at the contact, focusing on Jamie with her eagle-like eyes. "Was goin' to go decorate some scarecrow, did you want to come?" He asked, picking up Oasis' brush and gently combing her neck of dirt.

Oasis had a habit of rolling on the ground, and at least she had stopped doing so in her stall. He had to constantly clean her every time he wanted to take her out for a ride or into the pasture. She used to always stink, but now she smells so much better. Especially since he had just washed her yesterday. David hummed to himself as he brushed her down, her grey fur looking less brown and more of the deep blue-grey of her coat. He smiled and gently rubbed her nose before handing her a treat in the pocket of her saddle.

It was true that she looked much better, her mane was brushed, detangled, and cut- though uneven; just like David, Oasis hated it getting cut. Her tail was done up in a bun with a pink ribbon to inform everyone not to pass behind her. Her fetlocks were no longer matted and were now soft and her hind hooves' fetlocks showed their blue-white colour. She looked like a whole new horse, and David couldn't stop the pride that swelled in his chest upon hearing someone else telling him this. He smiled really wide, sheepishly thanking Jamie as he played with the mare's brush.

"I was going to ride into town to pick up some items and head to the 'crows, if you wish to join. I can meet you at the scarecrows if you don't want to come to town." David offered.
