Howlite rolled his eyes as Sulfur read his book. Then Blu offered to dance. He smiled.
"I'd love to."
He took her hand and she pulled him to the center of the room. He put one hand on her hip and kept his other laced in her hand. Then he began to slow dance with her. Occasionally he would give her a little twirl and go right back to slow dancing.
"We should've done this a long time ago. You know something? I'd do this for eternity. I actually bought this record because of you. When you and I first met, I heard this song on the way home. I bought the record and it's become a favorite of my patrons. I even have a hidden message in it if you play it backwards. I'll show it to you once Boss leaves."
He watched the two mingle disgustingly. Howlite was once again flirting, nothing new, but Blue Quartz was going along with it. Responding to his catcalls like the humans at his nightclub. It was disrespectful to their own image! Blue Quartz swooned over him and Howlite continued to flirt. Sulfur tried to bury his nose in his book, hoping that he could just ignore it but then Howlite started to ramble on about some secret message in the record. Sulfur stood and closed his book, sighing.
"Why should you wait to play her your perverted message Howlite... no time like the present." He scoffed, rolling his eyes. He turned and started to stroll from the room, tucking the book under his arm. "Enjoy your dance... reading is easier in silence."
Blue tilted her head smiling at Howlite, she clenched her palm in his hand while placing the other on his shoulder, there slow dancing was absolutely amazing, it felt as though they already fused yet still this bond they carried was stronger than fusion.
Blue blushed at his words, it was common that he had a way with them however he was in a relationship, it currently was nothing more than a friendly dance.....with occasional flirts which was nothing too serious," Really? Forever? Wow howlite, so would I. Howlite your such the charmer, it's hard to believe that you would even consider dancing with me as your in a relationship, wouldn't it feel weird for you?." Blue said chuckling a bit as she would be twirled.
As she headed him speak of a hidden message in the song she became intrigued," Really? Id love to see it." Blue saw Sulfur walking off with his book in which then she looked at Howlite whispering in his ear," Go talk to your brother, he came to the party was well, it'll be alright I'll be here" she insisted.
"As an assassin, I lived with 2 things. Charm for the women and bravado for the enemy. It's served me quite well."
After giving her a quick dip, he smiled.
"Oh I don't find it weird at all. Most women yes but with you not at all."
As she told him to go see Sulfur, he chuckled.
"I'll be back as soon as possible m'lady."
He walked over to Sulfur with a crazy grin on his face.
"Hey Boss. What're you doing? You're supposed to be hanging out with me and Blu! Look Boss, I miss the old days. I remember when we used to do everything together. Now it's like you want nothing to do with me. Why? I know I've changed a lot but I'm still the same man who you met in the theatre. The same man who hasn't left your side since day one. Please... I can't make you be my brother again. You've told me that so many times. So I'm done trying to make you enjoy or understand. From now on I'm just gonna let you decide. So what's it gonna be? Continue to loath me? Or give me a chance and be my brother again?"
Sulfur clenched his fists and looked at the floor.
"You do realize that gems are asexual... we are grown not born. You are not my brother... you're not even the same species as me..." Sulfur paused and sighed. "You are a liar Howlite. You used to be like me and then I could trust you... but now you're a lunatic. You have changed... you have left my side... for an insignificant child even... you left a real friendship, for some make believe one. That white spinel... she's so weak and miserable! Why did you choose her over me!?"
Sulfur turned back toward Howlite with a scowl.
"I'm tired of being called a brother by someone who would betray me, a skilled gem with thousands of years of knowlege, for some puny speck of a gem! If you don't want me to loath you then be someone worth caring about! I`ll never understand you!" Sulfur shouted. He turned and walked out of the room.
"You really think that's what happened? And you say I'm a twit. Listen here and listen good, I didn't choose Flurry over you. I chose both. And I didn't change Boss. You just never bothered to get to know the full me until I left. Before that you knew just one half of me. Well guess what? I'm tired of being the guy you hate. So I'm done trying to help. You're clearly never gonna like me so you can just go if you want. Oh and by the way"
He extended his middle finger to Sulfur then turned around and walked to Blu.
Sulfur rolled his eyes at the gesture and continued to stroll away.
"What a mistake..." He mumbled. He went to his study and sat in his velvet armchair, in which he did most of his reading. He opened his book, but found that he wasn't motivated to read. He looked into his lap for a while, until the silence was broken by Pearl's voice.
"Sir...they're still having a party... and... well... maybe? " Pearl offered with an awkward smile. She quickly gave up and moved closer to him. "I`ll prepare you some coffee okay... "
"Yes... coffee would be nice... " Sulfur said with a faint smile. Pearl however, stood for a moment longer.
"He's your friend. " She said suddenly.
"I didn't want a friend when I recruited him..." Sulfur hissed coldly. Pearl sighed and left the room.
Blue clenched her arms as they spoken to one another, she could hear yelling in which then she instantly knew that it didn't go well, yet still it was typical as there was just no more trying to talk to sulfur about how they felt towards him, we just were done with him know it seemed.
In a group there always will be a sour apple time period, in which the individuals of the group disagree or have personal issues between the peers, yet in the end only time can tell what shall be of the result of the group.
Blue Quartz continued to slow dance with howlite as he came back narrowing her eye as this might've been a bad party for him," I'm sorry Howlite, all this is my fault, it's honeslty the main reason Sulfur's acting the way he is really, I shouldn't of just messed with his head like that.. I..I think I should go...and let you two have this party..." Blue said feeling bad immensely.
Howlite growled when he realized Blu was unhappy. As Sulfur began to walk away to the warp pad, he summoned his rifle silently and took aim. One shot and he could easily stun Sulfur. One shot and he'd never hurt Blu again. Then Sulfur warped away and he desummoned his rifle. He turned back to Blu with a smile.
"Problem solved. Now then, let me show you something. I made this the day we met."
He approached the record player and flipped the disc over. The record began to play backwards and Howlite's voice could be heard.
"Howlite's audio log. Entry 1. I've had a rather interesting day today. Originally I had planned to kill 2 gems and take their shards. But now they've become my family. One in particular, Blu Quartz, has become fixed into my mind."
Frank's voice could be heard.
"Sounds like someone's in love. I bet you have a thing for girl's with 3 eyes."
Howlite laughed defiantly.
"Jokes on you! She's got one!"
Frank chuckled back.
"Thanks for proving my point. You're in love Howlite."
Blue held her palms down to her upper thigh area tilting her head to the side she smiled as the record would play backwards centralizing his liking to her when they first met, honestly she thought he didn't really enjoy her presence after Sulfur and her fused forming Lady Aqua however she was wrong.
Even so she had to stop this at once, he was in love already with someone else, who is she to just get into his relationship, she messed with someone's head before and it shall not occur again. Blue went over to the record and stopped it, turning back to Howlite she would nod towards him with a smile," I just want to say that umm, I'm really happy for whoever you are with and umm.. I hope for you two that you stay together for an eternity because.. I'm not good for you Howlite, I'm just not..." she continued," I'm always in the way when it comes to you and sulfur and I just make things worse for you, I guess is what I'm saying is that we should stop having feelings for one another and just be friends.. great friends at that.. I don't want to jeapordizing what your already have.. goodbye Howlite, I loved the message."
Blue exited the party, glowing her body into her usual attire she would then head to a near by warp-pad to head out into the forest area to her base as she needed to focus on her work a little more, it's one of the reason why she came to this planet in particular.
"You're right. I do love Obsidian. I didn't plan to but I fell in love with her. She makes me feel wonderful. But so do you. Don't say you're not good for me. I want us to stay great friends. But you're right, we should stop being in love. I promise you that I'll treat Obsidian right. I'll treat her as I would you."
He poured himself a drink before she left.
"Before you go, meet me here in 6 days. I'm going to Beach City for awhile. 6 days and I'll be back. I swear."
As she left, he cleaned up the place and smiled. He took off his mask and looked at a picture of Obsidian.
This Roleplay is a prequel to Steven Universe to an extent with some slight retconing and its own progression to the story that will turn out differently to how stuff plays out in the show.Thanks to the message by Rose Quartz several gems are rising up to protect Earth and have labelled themselves as the Crystal Gems. Others on earth are remaining aligned to Homeworld though despite the isolation of Earth from Homeworld
All gems on earth are still stranded, the communication hub is still offline and all the space warps are shattered, it has now been revealed that this is the work of Rose Quartz and her small group known as the Crystal gems. They have rebelled against Homeworld and have chosen to protect the Earth (Trapping themselves on Homeworld to keep the warps down).
Now both sides are fighting among themselves along with fighting against the 'Corruption' a virus is infecting many gems turning most of them into mindless monsters, but those with a stronger will seem to becoming something more sinister.
The Game has changed now. The question has finally been posed, are you against Homeworld or allied with them. Or do you have your own agenda that may or may not been assisted by the ‘Corruption’. Regardless the seeds have been placed down and although it is only the beginning the fight for or against Earth and the corruption has begun. The choice is yours for how it is shaped on the Original Steven Universe Roleplay Site.
