PostSubject: Old Dogs Reminisce   Fri Nov 27, 2015 10:58 pm

First topic message reminder :

It was a cold winter night, and not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. A fire crackled in the hearth, warming the small house. Four sleepy dogs huddled together, comfy and snug. It seemed all it took to be warm was a loving hug.

The family of four sat together in front of the fireplace, wrapped up in a big blanket, with Luke and Styla on either side of their parents. They both had fallen asleep quite some time ago, rendered drowsy by the warmth. Luke's head rested in Lina's lap, and Styla had Syntax as her makeshift pillow. While they slept, Lina and Syn simply leaned on each other, watching the fire crackle and flicker.
Eventually, Syntax carefully breaks the silence, quietly asking her wife, "Do you remember when we would sit together like this, before we decided to live with each other, Lina?"

"I... I cannot find him. I found myself alone one day, and after a week of isolation, I thought that perhaps he had traveled someplace away from the laboratory. I tried to find him, which brought me here. And now I am here."

"It is fine, thank you. I... I do not want to believe it, but he may have perished. He had a habit of returning covered in wounds or with such a beaten appearance that I am surprised he could stand."

Lina doesn't say anything, instead moving another spoonful of the soup near her mouth.

She opens wide, without saying anything else.

Another spoonful in. "So... What'll you do if he IS... Uh, sorry..."

"I will most likely attempt to seek out a new master. I cannot simply ignore the purpose of my existence, after all."

"... Hell, who am I to deny you the purpose of your existence? Why don't I be your new master then? ... If you want me to be, of course..." She speaks slowly, as though she had decided this within a minute or so of contemplation.

"Are you certain? You have not seemed to desire my presence or my assistance as of yet."

"Because so far all you've done is try and hurt yourself! But... I mean, I guess if you have nowhere else to go, I could use a servant to help take care of this place for me..." She says with a tiny smile on her face.

She nods. "Then I will accept your offer, Ms. Lina."

"But you have to do exactly as I say, no questions asked. No takebacks, either, you're stuck here with me! And in return, I'll be the best master you've ever seen!" Lina says with a wink and a slightly larger smile.

Syntax offers a small smile. "I swear I will serve to the best of my ability."

"Good. I'm sure you'll fulfill your purpose plenty with me." Lina replies, probably not being entirely serious, before returning to the soup. "... But before all that, you have to get better. So let's finish up the rest of this, shall we?"

"Very well." She opens her mouth again, like a baby bird, though significantly less energetic.

And so began their new lives together as master and servant. Syntax soon made a full recovery, and almost immediately put herself to work. Lina, however, still seemed to keep her distance as much as possible. At least until one day where she fell asleep at the desk in her home, poring over what seemed to be various spellbooks. She was in a somewhat-uncomfortable looking position; her back would surely become sore in the morning if she slept there all night.

It wasn't long at all before Syntax came across her, as tireless as ever. Thankfully, it would be an easy situation to resolve: She simply had to be tucked into bed. Syntax had done this sort of thing with her old master here and there... And she expected the response to be just as irritated. But it was what needed to be done, if the master wanted to avoid cramps and aches.
So she carefully lifted Lina from her chair, cradling her surprisingly easily, and carried her to her bed.

"Mm...?" She begins to stir, her ears perking up slightly.

Syntax stops for a moment, seeing if she'll fully wake up.
