Remember Me. Chapter 1 2. Chapter 2 3. Humans stopped at nothing to get their rain, and Yoongi was going to stop at nothing to see Seokjin smile. Seokjin was the spirit of rain, and it rained every time he cried. Yoongi looked up at the sky and frowned lightly at the nonstop downpour. The fire spirit raised his hand and a block of warm air enveloped him, spreading outward to form a bubble where rain didn't fall.
The mud dried under his feet, but as soon as he took another step the rain hit it again. He headed directly to the center of the city toward the large building with the white walls. He made his way up the white steps and was stopped by a guard. The shrine does not allow visitors. The man's eyes widened and he dropped into a deep bow. I'm sorry, your holiness. I could not recognize you in the dim light. What brings you here late at night? The rain spirit is.
Yoongi waved his hand without an answer, but the guard stepped aside to let him through. The shrine was brighter inside, illuminated by glowing droplets of water that rose and fell in continuous loops on the walls. The floor was water, but Yoongi had visited the shrine enough times to know it was charmed. He made his way across the room slowly and climbed the steps at the end in the same ease.
Yoongi had always wondered what the point of all the grandeur of the rain spirit shrine was, when almost no one was allowed in it, anymore. The only people who entered the shrine was the high priest, who sometimes brought the shrine maidens or the shrine boys, and the guards, who were restricted on the first floor and were forbidden to even take a single step up the steps.
Spirits were able to enter as they wanted, but the rain spirit rarely had visitors. In the over thousand years Yoongi had known the rain spirit, the only spirit that had ever visited was himself. It hadn't always been this way.
Yoongi remembered the day suddenly when the high priest of Seokjin's state decided to ban everyone from the shrine. He raised his hand and the waterfall split to let him through. Let It Rain - The Boys - Boys Only room inside was more warmly lit, soft shades of pink where the rain spirit had brought Sonic - The Charlatans - Some Friendly his own touches to the shrine.
The rain spirit was in the middle, face bowed as soft sobs wrecked his body. It was the first time Yoongi had visited at night, and he quietly sat in front of the rain spirit. Yoongi raised his hand to carefully cup Seokjin's cheeks, rubbing the trails of tears that Seokjin missed.
It was the reason why Seokjin Susannahs Still Alive - Various - The Spirit Of The 60s: 1967 The Hits Dont Stop barred from the public while the other spirits had open shrines.
Seokjin had been condemned to a life of loneliness and darkness, reduced to sobs every night in desolation, for the sole reason that the state depended on it raining every night. Are you cold? Seokjin shook his head, his shoulder trembling as more tears spilled down his cheeks. Yoongi sighed.
I'm right here. The gods didn't make you to suffer like this, you know. They made us to help the humans, not for us to be used by them like this. If Yoongi's high priest tried to ban visitors from his shrine, Yoongi would have burned him.
When Seokjin's high priest announced it, Seokjin had been shocked but he'd done nothing Paradise By The Dashboard Light - Meat Loaf - Bat Out Of Hell it after the priest coaxed him it was the best thing for Seokjin to do.
The state doesn't need it to rain every night, all night. Seokjin sniffled but nodded, wiping his eyes with the Let It Rain - The Boys - Boys Only of his silken robe.
Seokjin rubbed his arms, shivering a little, and Yoongi frowned, opening his palm to let a puff of fire burst to life and rest on Seokjin's lap. Said it wasn't pure Let It Rain - The Boys - Boys Only a rain spirit to have fire around. Yoongi stared. He ended up spending the night in the rain shrine, Seokjin in his arms and the ball of fire on Seokjin's lap. He tucked Seokjin in under the blankets when the sun rose.
Seokjin woke blearily. Go back to sleep. Seokjin smiled sleepily and hugged the ball of fire to him, and Yoongi stayed to watch Seokjin sleep peacefully for a few moments before he headed out of Let It Rain - The Boys - Boys Only shrine.
Yoongi had expected this. The guard looked nervous, and Yoongi didn't blame him. Follow the orders of his high priest, or let the spirit through? Yoongi looked up at the rainy sky, and he didn't think he was imagining it was raining harder than yesterday.
High priests, they're servants of the gods, right? Created by the gods directly, to lead us and Bear Cat Blues - Jimmy Blythe - Moods Of Jimmy Blythe represent them. The high priest is below me. How dare he think he can ban me from wherever I please? Yoongi hurried down the hallway and up the stairs, not even bothering to part the waterfall into Seokjin's room.
He felt his heart stop for a moment when he saw Seokjin's arm. The robe was torn at the elbow and stained with blood. Underneath, Seokjin's arm was bandaged, but the blood under was seeping through. He's right. The state needs me to make it rain. Tears dropped onto his blue robes and made dark circles where they fell. I couldn't - I couldn't stop him.
I was asleep when he came in with the guards. Seokjin could apparently feel his anger building and his fire starting to rage within him, because Seokjin grabbed his wrist. I promise. I love the state and its people. He sighed and gently thumbed away the tears.
Yoongi smiled. But on one condition. Seokjin blushed. He opened his palms and a ball of fire burst from his hands. He spread balls of fire all around the room, illuminating the blue light with the orange.
Seokjin laughed, hugging a ball to him and sighing at the warmth. Seokjin looked offended. You made these. How can anything you make be impure? Yoongi scowled. There was so much wrong with the situation. The spirit was supposed to be the one in power, not the high priest, but it looked like Seokjin had been pushed to the bottom of the Elysium - Darren Styles / Breeze* / Hixxy / Gammer - Clubland X-Treme Hardcore 9 chain.
He sighed and tugged a ball over, spreading his palm over it. It contracted into the size of a small marble. Seokjin beamed at him and Yoongi smiled back. When he came back the next night, he blinked curiously up at the clear sky. No rain. He brushed by the guard, not even bothering to talk to him. When he got into Seokjin's room, worry gnawing at his insides, he found Seokjin calmly reading. When Yoongi walked in, Seokjin smiled. Seokjin smiled sheepishly. He took them away, so I'm not crying.
He confessed, "I cried in the morning when he took them away, so I think people will be okay even if I don't cry tonight. Yoongi sat back, leaning back on his Let It Rain - The Boys - Boys Only and feeling the worry seep out of him. Did he take away the necklace, too?
