Chirrut spends hours tending the tea plants today, replanting groupings of three or four into individual plants, arranging and re-arranging the pots to best find the warmth (and supposedly light) of the sun, making sure the watering system would cover the new arrangement of plants... there was a lot to do. It is peaceable work and the time flies by.

Baze isn't in his brewery when Chirrut is done, so he meanders upstairs to get cleaned up. While he cannot see muddy fingerprints, he has it on good authority that they're highly annoying.

The pain catches him once he's inside. Sudden loss, sharp and aching as a stab through the chest turns any scream into a shocked breath of air, almost silent in its agony.

Baze.

That sense of knowing where Baze is, that he's alright... it's gone. He's gone.

Chirrut isn't sure how long he spends on his knees, frozen in that moment, too stunned to figure out what comes next. He can only barely remember a time Baze wasn't by his side, not too far away. He's still not, Chirrut knows in his head, but his heart doesn't want to listen. His heart is too busy screaming.

Finally he picks himself up, dusting himself off by habit. Downstairs, he should head downstairs, ask Bar, she'd... well, she'd have the best chance of knowing. Then maybe X, if he doesn't find his answer. Then... Too much, that's enough of a plan. He turns back to the door, but... no.

Muddy fingerprints are annoying. He's been told this.

Washing his hands doesn't take long. There's... there's no rush now.

When Chirrut gets to the Bar, he is greeted with a note, written on paper that would have been painfully precious in NiJedha. To anyone watching, his expression does not change as he reads it over and over again, tracing the raised ink with gentle fingers.

This? Baze died for this? So senseless. Baze deserved more.

Chirrut has a quiet word with the Bar, and is rewarded with a stack of books and a copy of his reader, which he takes to one of the chairs by the fire, a rat following behind with a cup of tea. Not Sapir - a surprise tea. For Baze. The books are on brewing beer and moonshine, a project he's wholly unsuited for, but he intends to master.

"That would be lovely, thank you." Bonnie says.

"Is Baze feelin' better now? He was worried he'd give you that nasty cold that's goin' round."

Oh hey. It's Baze's weird friend. The one that doesn't seem to like Wilford much. Maybe he knows where the big guy is.

Wilford powers through the headache that's not getting any better and heads over to Chirrut, completely unaware of what's going on.

"Where's your pal?" he asks, as if he hadn't been right there when everything went to hell.
cottoncandypink: (Animated)

[personal profile] cottoncandypink 2017-09-12 11:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Considering Wilford still doesn't realise Chirrut is blind, it doesn't even occur to him that the staff would be any kind of aid beyond an aid for causing someone pain.

"Okay," Wilford says slowly, not going anywhere. There's $2000 in his wallet, which he quickly pulls out. "I told your boyfriend I'd give him two grand if he helped me out with something."

He does not indicate at all that he is holding that two grand in his hand, and intends for Chirrut to take it and deliver it to Baze, if he ever decides to show up.

[personal profile] cottoncandypink 2017-09-12 11:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, what the hell is this? Wilford's wallet and the cash both disappear into his inventory before he has the chance to lose it. He's slow and groggy from this headache that just won't go away (he is not getting sick, damnit), so it takes him a few moments longer than it should to realise that Chirrut is pissed off about something.

"Hey, hands off," Wilford says, trying to pull away.

What the hell did he do now? He doesn't deserve this!

Baze Malbus died in pain, but it did not last long.

Hours after Chirrut receives the note, Baze appears outside again, lying on his belly in the mud, his bloody injuries ghosting away as if they never were. His repeater cannon rests on his back, whole, and he clutches his staff in his hand. He tastes the mud, and is delighted to find himself in Milliways.

Chirrut.

Baze has to find Chirrut.

The larger Guardian pushes himself up from the mud, and stands still for a few seconds, momentarily dizzy. He's still covered in glitter, still sick. He pays that no mind. He stalks towards the bar

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-13 05:47 am (UTC)(link)
Baze watches Chirrut burst through the back door, and starts running. The larger Guardian pumps his arms and legs and pushes himself to eat up distance with his powerful stride.

Chirrut is here. Baze is already sobbing, his heart caving in.

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-13 06:06 am (UTC)(link)
Baze nearly bowls Chirrut over in a tackle-glomp-hug, clinging more tightly than the larger Guardian has ever clung in his life. He peppers his friend's face with kisses--first the forehead, then both cheeks. Drawing a breath through Baze's blocked, glitter-encrusted nose, he tries to inhale the grounding scent of Chirrut, warm and spicy and present.

Baze's heart beats so fast he's surprised it doesn't just burst from his chest. He's nervous; Chirrut's reaction can only mean one thing--that he felt the death--and Baze worries that he won't be forgiven.

"I'm sorry," he croaks, his voice still raspy from the cold--and from tears. "I'm so sorry."

Ibani nearly falls over when she feels a presence that shouldn't be, that CAN'T be, here.

It must be a trick, but she tears off toward Baze's force presence at top speed anyway.

If someone is trying to pretend to be Baze Malbus, they're going to be very, very sorry!
iprotectyou: Baze looking off to the side, wrinkling his nose (how about no)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-09-14 02:46 am (UTC)(link)
Baze watches Ibani, and then Chirrut, burst through the back door, and picks up the pace. The larger Guardian staggers into a run, tears already streaming down his glitter-encrusted face. He eats up distance with his powerful stride, but he's not fast enough for his liking, so he pushes himself harder, sneezing multicolored glitter along the way.

Chirrut and Ibani must have felt the death, Baze realizes as he bolts towards them. If they sensed his coming back, they must have felt him leaving. Damn.

Ibani reaches Baze first by dint of cheating with the Force. She hauls Baze into a hug for a moment, then steps back and gives him the most evil stinkeye.

"What the FLARK were you thinking?! Being dead is not an excuse for not having survival instincts! What did you even get INTO, it felt like claws!"

She takes a breath, then makes a choked sounding sob and clings onto Baze like a limpet.

In a way, Ibani is lucky. She's upstairs in her room when she feels Baze die, feels claws rip through her (Baze's) throat. She's felt many deaths, but this, this HURTS more than the mere agony echoed in her flesh, because Baze is her FRIEND.

She shoves the urge to howl in rage and grief aside, because if SHE'S hurting, Chirrut must have felt it too. She can't lose both of them, she can't!

Ibani is a flurry of worry and grief as she pelts down the stairs, then skids to a stop within arms reach of Chirrut.

"Chirrut?" His name comes out with more of a questioning tone than she intended.

Ibani wraps her arms around Chirrut as tightly as she dares.

Chirrut may not be weeping, but Ibani can tell that he's hurting. "I felt it too. I don't.....is there anything I can do for you?"

She wants to scream, to rage, to weep for what has been taken, for WHO has been taken.

[personal profile] last_kallig 2017-09-13 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
"Yes," Ibani admits, voice rough with tears not yet shed. "Are you, do you intend to...go?"

The words stick in her throat, the selfish desire to demand that he not leave her too.
