[ ashes to ashes - open ]
« on: September 15, 2019, 11:55:06 AM »

it had been a while since he’d actually gotten to burn something besides a cigarette. when he was younger he could remember going out with cas. they would light things on fire just to see what it would do- or to be even more reckless and try and jump or walk across the fire. those had been simpler times, nothing that made them look like your modern-day daredevils. though it had been something fun to do whenever there was nothing to do. he figured things could be the same in bluestem if there truly was nothing else to do.

it just so happened that there wasn’t anything else better to do than head out away from the schooners and start a fire. it had been relatively easy; leaves and grass, some sticks. soon enough roman and the unnamed black dog - that still followed him around, much to his dismay - had started for themselves a rather good sized, controllable fire. some of the additional items thrown in there were litter or discarded belongings.  although it wasn’t nearly as destructive as it could be, it was still the slightest bit of fun to be picking things up and tossing it into the fire. it was definitely better than doing nothing.

he stood there and observed it. then glanced over towards the black dog who sat and kept their eyes on the fire, almost as if they were copying the person they followed around.

      Growing up, Silas too was quite the pyromaniac. Well, he'd say such thing, but in reality it was more so him being a little bit of an arsonist. After all, fires were so easily to create and so fun to watch crackle and burn, like the tree he'd once set on fire just to prove his bitterly resentful point. But, as his grandparents used to say to him, ❝ If you play with fire, you're gonna get burned. ❞ Well, consider Silas an exception to the rule, then. Some would be engulfed by the flames yet, as for Silas, he'd remain untouched.

When he saw the fire starting, it had immediately caught Silas' interest. After all, what was Roman up to over there? Humming under his breath in contemplation, Silas shoved his hands in his pockets casually as he wandered over. ❝ Not gonna set the place on fire, are ya? ❞ Silas kidded lightheartedly, dimples sinking as he grinned a subtle closed-lipped smile, taking in the warmth of the fire willingly.

silas’s voice was enough for roman to break his gaze with the fire, turning instead to look at the leader making his way over. “not today. maybe tomorrow,” the man replied lightheartedly. for once silas seemed so happy. it was a new look on the man for ro, a different perspective. the unnamed black dog watched silas with about the same amount of curiosity as roman oftentimes would. good boy. he ended up padding slowly over towards silas, as if silas would give him the attention roman tried not to hand out.

at least the leader wasn’t getting in too much of a frenzy by seeing fire. he seemed relatively unfazed as he stood close to the fire, close-lipped smile and all. perhaps the leader was finally done with mourning. the man would more than likely mourn from time to time what he had lost - especially around a death that seemed particularly fishy to roman… - but it was still a nice change of pace. “you’re looking a bit happier than when i first met you,” he ended up voicing the thought, glancing over at the leader before looking back at the fire. the man had changed, that was for sure - and while roman wasn’t the best at getting sappy, he’d be a fool not to voice that.

"either that or flames really excite you that much."
