Thunder At Midnight [Candice, Ehefra] VrP0xUo

Candice Catnipp | Heiress Extraordinaire

It felt like it had been an age since she had seen Ehefra. Truthfully, it had been about a month, which was a long time for Candi to not see her girl when they had practically been living together for a while. Whilst Giselle had been in hospital on the verge of death, Candi had needed to lean on Hefra a lot more than had probably been healthy or fair. But, frankly, it seemed like she had needed the company too so maybe it was a two-way street.

Then, suddenly, that nightmare had been over for Candice. Giselle had recovered and they had agreed to move in together, properly rather than simply crashing in hotel rooms. That had kept her busy for a while, all the physical training and then the combat practice on top of everything else she was usually doing. She had never been in better shape, and she fucking loved that, but it had certainly put a strain on other aspects of her life. Like the other woman.

Not to say that she had been avoiding Hefra, they had still been messaging and calling and stuff, but Candi had been getting these abnormal feelings from her little Quincy. She hated getting weird vibes. So here she was, turning up on her doorstep with a night bag slung over one shoulder and the intention to get to the bottom of everything.

It was getting worse.

Things had been easier when Candice was around. Having someone nearby helped her feel more secure. She still had had the nightmares, but they had just woken her up, not nearly as often as they did nowadays. The feeling that something was just outside of her vision. Memories of that stupid fucking forest. The sensation of being stalked and hunted. Were so much harder to keep at bay when she was alone. Tch, and now the damn sternritter were bothering her. Her mind wandered tiredly to the interaction she'd had with Giselle's kid. Liltotto. Not exactly her best moment, but she was too tired to care these days.

But when she heard that knock, she pekred up and promptly made her way over to the door. For just a moment, she hesitated. She knew she looked like shit. Little sleep, and being constantly on edge hadn't done her any favors. She reached up and ran her fingers throug her own hair, it was a bit messier than usual. Well.. too late to fix it now. She opened the door and peeked out, giving a tired smile as she spotted the woman.

"Hey Candy! I thought you weren't gonna be her for a bit, I haven't had a chance to freshen up." She chuckled, stepping outside to move in and pull Candice into a hug, a little...surprised by how energetic and bright Candice looked. The heck had been goin on?

Thunder At Midnight [Candice, Ehefra] VrP0xUo

Candice Catnipp | Heiress Extraordinaire

Candi was hardly dressed in what she would have liked when it came to seeing her girlfriend either, though this plain incognito look was a necessity in her eyes. Hair down rather than properly styled, makeup basic rather than excessive, and all of her shapely form packed up tightly inside of one of Ehefra's hoodies that she had laid claim to before leaving last time. But she was also holding her breath even as the door opened and that familiar face poked outwards.

All that immediate tension dissipated as soon as their eyes met, her own emerald orbs bulging a little as she stepped into the hug and smothered Ehefra against her body as she squeezed. It was a little much, but Candi had missed her, so that made it acceptable.

"We can freshen up together then, Hefra, but I was only able to bring the bare essentials."

She laughed too, enjoying the moment before casting a glance down to the bulky shoulder bag that was already beginning to get in the way and definitely included a lot more than what any sane person would call 'the bare essentials'. There was certainly an energy to her, like a battery that had only just been charged, but she topped it all off with a wide smile.

"Are you gonna invite me in, or do I have to just carry you back inside?"

The Heiress teased playfully as her grip upon Ehefra shifted from a natural embrace into something a little more practical, she certainly seemed to be making ready to carry out her threat.

Mph?! Ehefra let out a startled little noise as the taller woman promptly closed in and smothered her in a hug. A little grunt of surprise as she was all but smothered in Candice's arms, clearly overtaken by the other woman's clear advantage of higher energy! She hugged back as best she could and chuckled a little as Candice squeezed her. A brief puase as she looked down at that bag and felt a faint flush cross her features as Candice so playfully mentioned carrying her inside. Immediately, Ehefra's brain processed that little offer and .uh....was pretty fond of the result. Clearing her throat just a little before giving a sheepish smile. "I'm not gonna complain if you wanna. But yea come on in." she noted, nodding to lead Candice inside. Or well, more likely she would get dragged or indeed carried inside.

Inside at least things were about how Candice would remember them. Thankfully Ehefra's loss of sleep hadn't made her more messy than usual. Frankly she wasn't home often enough to make much a mess. Beeps promptly floated in and trilled in greeting to Candice, making its way over to bump her cheek before slipping into the kitchen to get some tea after Ehefra gave it a little tap on the side.

"Jeez, you seem real.....peppy. Been on some kinda new energy drink or somethin?" She ventured, tilting her head a bit to the side. There were a few things scattered around. Honestly she'd been pretty so so these last few days. Nat hadn't really visited in a while and well, aside from the couple cans and containers around her work area, there wasn't much out of place.

"Heh~ Like I was gonna take no for an answer anyway."

Candi's hands ventured further south, wasting surprisingly little time in brushing over Ehefra's rear before stopping at the back of her thighs. Then, with a heave, she lifted her off the ground and gave her a moment to wrap those free legs around her waist. There was a moment of wobbliness, with that pesky travelling bag weighing Candi down just a bit, and then they charged inside together. Whilst carrying her across the threshold, Candi's gaze did not leave that of Ehefra's until she leaned in to gently put their foreheads together for a single tender moment. Only then did she spare a glance at the rest of the room.

It certainly did not appear to have changed much since she had left. Which was both charming and alarming in equal measure. Was it a good sign or not? She turned as Beeps approached her face, pecking at the floating cube in an endearing greeting of her own before letting it get back to its own business with another playful little laugh.

"I'm in a good mood." She announced it with such a brazen intensity that it almost seemed like she was willing it into being. "I slept for like the entire flight over, so I haven't even had any alcohol. Not that I'm opposed to the idea but that's not really the point. I'm in a good mood cos I'm here."

Ehefra squeaked as she felt those hands scoop under her butt, only to then pick her up by her thighs! The quincy hurriedly clung to Candice's shoulders as she was promptly swept into the other room, clinging on for dear life before giving a sheepish smile as Candice explained her energy. A little smirk crossing Ehefra's face. "Fuck that sounds nice. I haven't really been sleeping all that great, prrrrrrobably not a great idea to get me drinking. I might just pass out from the fatigue." She chuckled, lightly looping her arms around Candice's shoulders as she rested.

Was it distracting just how close they were? Well, close was an understatement, Candice her her practically all pressed up against her, but it was ... a comfy closeness. And honestly, it took a lot of energy not to just slump forward and rest her face on Candice's shoulder. "So .. how did it go? I heard Giselle got out of the hospital. IS .... she alright?" She asked with a til of her head. Ehefra was USUALLY pretty in the know. But Giselle had straight up resigned from the Vandenreich, and so prettry much all updates on the woman's condition had stopped along with that. She'd heard that the woman was out, but she had no idea well...HOW she was doing.

Candice Catnipp | Heiress Extraordinaire

It was hardly like Candi took other people's personal space into consideration at the best of times, Ehefra was certainly no exception to that as she continued to hold her close whilst they conversed. She was not blind, though, as she tried to get the measure of Ehefra from those little reactions to her own words. News that she was still having trouble sleeping certainly worried Candice, but it was her turn to go on the back foot as the conversation quickly swung around to Giselle. Her liveliness didn't dim much, but there was certainly a flicker in her energy as that subject came up. It wasn't like they had ever really talked about all of that. For a long while, she had been selfishly hoping to avoid it and continue on with blissful ignorance. Still, for better or worse, Ehefra had stuck around this far so perhaps there was more to it.

"Oh. Giselle is doing better. Not quite up for travelling yet but back on her feet."

They'd been together all of two minutes and she was asking about other women, though. She had walked out on people for less, as it obviously meant that they weren't interested in what was important - her! Those dark thoughts bubbled up and dared to show their face again, but that was not exactly Candice anymore. She wanted to assume that Ehefra's intent was not to hurt her like that, so she continued to put on a happy face and try to brush it off.

"But what about you, Heff? You are not the type to be losing out on sleep without a good reason and I haven't been around."

Her eyebrows flicked up suggestively as she leaned her head downwards to properly greet the woman who was wrapped around her shoulders. Pressing forwards regardless of what had come before was Candi's usual strategy, and so she attempted to land a kiss on Ehefra's lips as she made her own little accusation.

Ehefra nodded at that, and smiled, relieved as her tired mind frankly was mainly interested because Candice has been a mess over the whole thing, so naturally she would wanna know about what had been bothering Candice for a while. But well, she didn't pick up on the shift of energy. "I'm glad. You were really freaked out, I was a little worried. So ...Giselle is doing okay. But what about you? You seem real...peppy. Is everything going alright with you? You mentioned you were travelling a bit." She added.


Though... as Candice asked about herself she ....looked to the side and avoided eye contact. And went quiet. For a moment, she considered just lying. But .....ugh...that was just too much energy. She hadn't had the energy to go lying to Liltotto, she wasn't gonna lie to Candice. "It's.... been interesting. I haven't been sleeping well since Miami. The .... guy I fought there. I made sure there was nothing left of him but ..... the way he fought ....it fucked me up a little...Been ... having bad dreams." Her voice was....strained and hesitant. She had told people she wasn't sleeping well. But she'd been pretty close to the chest on WHY. And even now it was .... hard to get into that. What, that she was being a baby and having widdwe nightmawres because the big bad spooky man did her a scare? She felt a stab of shame in her chest and she swallowed audibly. But thankfully that kiss from Candice was a nice comfort. A soft gesture of affection to push away those worries and fatigue. It was a small thing, but it definitely made her feel a bit better. A bit ... braver about speaking up.

"That and I've been having some pains in my legs. They're all patched up, I checked with the doctor. They said it's called...phantom pains. Because of how bad I was injured, my body is fine, but the brain still thinks theres a problem. So I've been trying to get some help with that." She explained, giving a little wiggle of her legs as if to emphasize that there was nothing physically wrong with them. Though Cadncie would still be able to see the scarring along the backs of her knees from where they'd had to do some surgical work.

Candice Catnipp | Heiress Extraordinaire

"Well, I am the light in your life. Figured I should act like it." Candi beamed another wolfish smile as Ehefra struggled through her own little self-assessment. Perhaps she owed her a little more than that, though, so she pouted a little and then continued. "But you're right. I was a hot mess back then and, looking back, it put a few things in perspective. About me, and the people in my life that I care about."

Candi was quick to chase after Ehefra when she made to look away, unwilling to let herself be pushed away so easily, and being wrapped up in her arms certainly made it hard to avoid her gaze for long. It was hardly the first time she had seen Ehefra flustered, so she wanted to get to the bottom of matters right from the off. She had been pretty spooked by that encounter in Miami back then, but Candi had assumed it was just the immediate aftermath. From what she said, he certainly had been a freaky monster, but this kind of trauma was a little much. That said, Ehefra wasn't exactly a hardass like she was. That might have been the first time when she was genuinely fighting for her life. A part of her wanted to just lambast her with some spiel about how life was tough but they had to be tougher, but that wasn't really gonna help.

"So it's like nightmares? Or are you worried that he is still out there? Hey, level with me. Ya ever been to therapy? If you are having trouble sleeping then I know a couple of amazing sleep doctors back in Switzerland, I could fly you out no problem."

It wasn't like Candice herself was entirely infallible. Her parents had sent her to see a psychiatrist after the plane crash, and again after the war, so she knew what it was like to get lost in your own head. Though that was more like a formal check-up than a full-on therapy course, and they were always quick to take their money and never did tell her that there was anything wrong. Her mentality was just a little unique with how she compartmentalized all the bad stuff, which was surely a good thing.

"Leg pains, though, maybe I can deal with that. How's a little massage sound?"

Ehefra smiled a little at Candice's playful little remadks, a soft chuckle escaping her as she sighed and stared a little at Candice. At least until she started trying to turn away. But well...Candice was on that. Moving about and trying to catch her eye, which...startled Ehefra a little, as she wound up with her brows raised and staring up into Candice's eyes as the girl loomed in and got in her face. It always startled her a little the way Candice went IN like this. A sheepish little smile forming as .... well..Candice ....spoke about her issue. And she almost scowled a little as she closed her eyes.

"I don't know. I'm not fuckin afraid. I don't even GET what's going on. He's dead. MORE than dead. He's hella obliterated. That's what happens when a quincy kills you all the way. His soul isn't even in hell. I know he's never gonna bother me. He can't hurt me anymore. But ........these fuckin dreams ....still just ...keep ...comin." She lowered her shoulder, and she allowed the stress and worry to show in her eyes as she sighed and lowered her head. OR well, as much as she could without planting her face in Candice. "The Vandenreich already has me set up. I have a counselor I'm workin with, they're trying to get something to help. I just...I can't sleep soundly. I keep having the same fucked up dreams that kick me awake." She murmured tiredly. Sighing slowly and slowly rubbing her eyelids.

And then Candice seemed to jump on the leg thing. A brief look of surprise, though frankly, she really shouldn't have been surprised at all. But even so, it did bring a little pink color to Ehefra's face. And .... it made her think about all the things Candice was saying. The way they acted around eachother. And she .... was quiet for a few long moments.

"I....have ... a question. You .....you've been helping me like... a lot.... Like a LOT a lot. And these things you say.... being the light of my life and stuff like that. It's a ... a little more than just friendly." She chuckled, rubbing the back of her neck and ten looking off to the side, not really even avoiding Candice, just ...looking for the words in her head. "We talked about this on that plane ride. We agreed we'd see where things go with being Friends. But well....I've been getting the feeling tat you wanna be somethin more. And ....I admit....I....kinda feel the same way." She smiled, a tired little smile as she rubbed her cheek with bashful idleness.

"Candice I......I'm a fuckin mess." She noted softly, shaking her head. "I'm.... not a good woman. Candy.... The shit I've ...done..." She felt her ears burn as she thought about them. The situation with NAtasha. What she'd done to Ira. Even the way she.....FELT with that situation. It wasn't right. "You do all this siht to help me.... but you don't know the kind of person you're getting involved with." She felt her chest grow a bit tight as that slow, creeping shame snuck up on her. So many other things creeping into her train of thought. She could tell that ...Candice had gone past liking her as just a friend. And .... the worst part was .... she didn't even feel bad.

A good person would feel bad. Would say something about ... the other women in her life. But in this moment she almost felt herself just ...ignoring it. Playing along. And those thoughts freaked her the fuck out. And the guilt stabbed her in the back. Even now, thinking about Ira mad her fucking MAD. That some, piece of shit SHINIGAMI was dating her. IT made her blood boil, even though it had no right to. She didn't own Ira. They hadn't even dated. And yet just thinking about that fucking date, it made her want to pull someone's teeth out. And she was a shamed of that feeling. That and so many others.
