Ohmtoonz Fantasy AU (Preview)
In the corner of the room, sat a young man wearing a dark grey hood that shrouded his face. He sat hunched over, hand tightly gripping at his stomach as red seeped through the clothing beneath it. His breathing was heavy and labored but despite all of this, the man still seemed on the defensive when Delirious and Cartoonz had entered the room.
Cartoonz, admittedly, did the same, as his hand gripped onto the hilt of his sword.
“…Holy fucking shit–” Delirious was the first to speak, voice whispering in shocked as they stared down at the wounded resident across the room. “Who… who the fuck are you?!”
Cartoonz instinctively stepped in front of Delirious. Sure, the man probably couldn’t pose much of a threat in his condition, but people don’t just get wounded out of nowhere. There was usually a cause and he was worried that the cause was still nearby. “Wh-why are you bleeding? What the fuck did that to you?”
The man barely moved from his corner and seemed to struggle to lift his head towards the two visitors. But, he managed, revealing his eyes to be covered by a bandana of sorts. It was really strange and Cartoonz couldn’t help but feel extremely curious about this man.
“…Y… You’re the ones who… who barged in here, you know… I should be asking who you people are…” His weak voice barely had a hint of cockiness to it. “…And… I’ll be… I’m fine…”
“Bull shit.” Cartoonz quickly stated. “What exactly did that to you?! Is it still here?!” His sword was halfway out of it’s sheath now but his nerves calmed whenever the mystery man shook his head.
“Nn…No… It’s dead… The person who did this has been dead for a while… I… just kind of came here to rest.” The man’s head lulled slightly, revealing to Delirious and Cartoonz that he was struggling to stay conscious and that’s when Luke and Delirious shot into action.
They quickly made their way over to him, despite his protests that he was fine. Delirious shook his head and helped pull the man onto Cartoonz’s back, who lifted up the weak man with relative ease. Any protest that had been coming out of the man’s mouth immediately ceased, bringing a grin to Cartoonz’s mouth.
“Good, shut your mouth for a bit. We’re gonna go and get you some help…” He watched Delirious nod with a grin as he pushed the stone door open a bit more. Cartoonz squeezed through, holding onto the man tightly as he did so. As he watched Delirious hurry after them, he turned towards the man holding onto his back. “Hey, what’s your name anyway?”
Cartoonz and Delirous both waited for an answer, glancing towards the man when they received nothing but silence. With the bandana in the way, it was difficult to see whether to man was awake or asleep but finally, he spoke up with a weak laugh. “Thought you… wanted me to shut my mouth…”
“Don’t be a smartass! What’s your name?” Cartoonz hurried for the exit as he waited for the answer. “It’s the least you can give me for saving your ass.”
Delirious hummed in agreement, eyeing the wounded man on Cartoonz’s back and for a moment, it seemed like the guy wasn’t going to answer. His grip on Cartoonz weakened and for a moment, Cartoonz thought that the man had passed out. But then he heard the small whispered reply against his ear.
“…Y’ can call me Ohm… I guess…” He murmered, voice revealing just how tired and exhausted he was.
Cartoonz raised an eyebrow. “You guess?”
“…Mmhm… I guess…” Ohm said no more after that and after a while, his arms completely went slack against Cartoonz.
