Melancholy And The Days (1) That Passed (part 1)

Zeydar awoke with a heaviness in his chest. It was almost as if he had lost everything. Unlike the times before when he used all his magic, this one was different. There was a sense of loss that he’d never experienced before. It was almost as if he had forgotten a part of himself.

Zeydar ripped off the Staffs on him, and reached for the magic around him. No matter how he tried to reach it was gone. The magic he had drawn back into his body the day before, almost as if it were gone. As he looked inward, he found it dormant, waiting, shaping, changing, no longer what it once was. He was empty but not in the way he’d ever been before. His magic was accessible but as a stranger was. All of his Earth magic was gone, and all that was left was the new magic, waiting to be understood.

“How are you feeling?” Evester asked with a husky voice.

“Lonely.” Zeydar admitted.

There was a long moment where Evester had no answer, before he wrapped his arm around Zeydar. “The magic will come back.”

“I’ve never felt this way before.” Zeydar did not know how to explain that the magic existed. It was that the magic was different. He’d grown knowing the magic from before, and while this magic healed him. It was different. It was… scary not knowing something.

“Is it gone?” Evester asked.

“No. What’s left in space? Lingers. But its as if the magic from the planet that I knew…” The magic that had raised and protected him for years. “it’s gone.”

“Are you as overwhelmed?”

“No.”

This magic he did not know. It did not touch him. He’d have to learn it. And he knew that it was the best decision he could have made to use up all the magic in the others. They too would need to learn new magic, new magic in their new world. What would it be like.

“You’ll figure it out.”

“I know, but I don’t like it.”

“You won’t have to deal with the space magic for long.”

Zeydar nodded, and tapped his fingers along Evester’s arm. “How long until we go to sleep.”

“I suppose that depends on you and Uly. Most others are going to sleep now, as we wait.”

Uly needed to go over the new world data and put in the coordinates after verifying the results. Zeydar did not want to look over all the data, but he knew that he would have to. The new world magic. Would it hurt him like the earth’s had? Would it settle and be out of touch, distant and difficult to explain, as the space magic was? Was there a point in predicting it, when… anything could change?

And then they would sleep. He was afraid of the sleep. There would be a complete cut off from the world, and Zeydar feared that his magic would somehow interfere. He, however, felt as if he could survive in space for some reason. He knew it was strange to expect of himself, but his magic told him it was possible.

He’d never try it.

For someone who was certain the universe was colluding to protect him, he was still afraid of the cryostasis. He could only imagine the fear others felt.

“It must be terrifying,” Zeydar said finally.

“I would suspect that it is.”

“What do you think it feels like?”

“No,” Evester said with a whisper, next to his ear. “For now we focus on the moment at hand. We can think of that in a few days.”

Evester was terrified, Zedyar realized. At least, it was something they shared in common. Zeydar was horrified of what was to pass before, and during, and after. He hated the idea of being in a confined space. Maverin knew that, and perhaps that was also why he wanted Zeydar to look over everything. It would give everyone peace of mind.

Sitting up, he looked to their clothes, and knew it was time to prepare for the day. 

He went to get up when he stopped. He then pulled Evester in for a kiss and looked at the man once more, wanting to implant int into his memory. There were only so many days they had left before they went to sleep and while Zeydar was not sure they would dream, he wanted to remember Evester’s face. 

Evester looked tired, and his eyes were red and puffy, with dark circles. He’d cried a lot in the exhaustion of finally being able to let go of the pressure of the end of the world. However, the Evester on the bed looked relaxed and refreshed despite the disheveled nature of his appearance. He looked happy and Zeydar never wanted to forget it.

“Yes?” Evester asked.

“I love you.” Zeydar kissed him again.

He placed this Evester away in his memory where the others were, all precious to him. They would all survive, because Zeydar would survive, and then Zeydar would commit more Evester’s to memory. Each one older and different than the last. No need for dreams, when reality was a better picture.
