Howlite developed his snake like smile. Everything was going together perfectly. "Good! We'll all go and be one big happy group." He looked at Pearl and pointed at Flint. He then dragged his finger across his throat. He then gave her a look that said 'understand?'. He marched over to Flint. "you know what? Maybe while we're there we'll get your car looked at? After all it would be a nice change of pace." He figured he'd ditch Flint at the car shop. Assuming of course Flint could take a hunt and judging by past experience.... It may not work.
Flint opened the door for the gems. "OK Howlite that's nice of you." After all he's been through, he could use his car back. He looked at Pearl. "When we first met he blew up my car." He then started walking out the door. He began to whistle a tune while they walked to the streets of Beach City. "You know what? I'm glad you're here. It's good to have company once in a while." He then hoped that nothing would ever separate them. He also hoped Pearl would open up more. She seemed passive and shy. He felt bad for her.
Pearl nods understanding howlite but what confused her was was she supposed to shatter flint or would howlite be carrying out this plan because she was not entirely sure she could actually shatter a gem who seemed nice even though he was a rebel but she nods going along with everything and walking out of the room ready to go out on the walk hoping to get everything over with quickly and not have to watch flint suffer of maybe she could ask and plead howlite to not end flints life because he seemed like the only person that could understand everything that she has went through and even cared to want to know her more she sighs and says "I'm glad to be here as well..."
Howlite scanned the area with his tracker vision. He was alone. Which meant Howlite's favorite phrase, no witnesses. He then located the shop. "OK Flint. Just walk in we'll wait right out here. Just go in and get your car fixed..." As Flint began to walk in, Howlite turned to Pearl. " You may want to cover your ears." He pulled out his rifle and took aim at Flint's gem. As soon as Flint walked in he was gonna take him out. He waited for the right moment to pull the trigger. Every millisecond his urge grew stronger. "You ready?"
Flint placed a reassuring hand on Pearl's shoulder. "I'll be right back." He then got towards the dealer. He began to realize just how badly damaged the car truly was. He told them he wanted it to be exactly as it was. "I need it to stay the same. It was given to me by someone important long ago. This car is all I have left." He stood there until he was told to take a number. He grabbed it. 25. Not too bad. Suddenly he heard "Now calling number 3!". He groaned. This was gonna take forever so he stood outside by the door and waited.
Pearl was battling her thoughts wether to let howlite do as he had planned in doing to flint she started to panic trying not to make a single noise so flint would not hear anything so he wouldn't see the rifle .her eyes began to dart around everywhere trying so very hard to keep her calm and quiet nature she grabs howlites shoulder and whispers "please please rethink what your doing howlite don't do th he dosnt deserve it even though he's a crystal gem he dosnt deserve to be shot down like he has for something wrong to offend you plus he is understanding of me he understands what I want through just please don't s-shoot..." she stood in front of the rifle to protect flint she seemed to actually have compassion for that gem she wanted to protect him even though he was apart of the crystal gems.
Howlite was about to pull the trigger when Pearl was in front of the barrel. He thrust out his hand and the rifle disappeared. "You better pray your right. Next time I won't hesitate." He then got up from his finding place and approached Flint. "Hey there Flint! I see your car's fixed. That's good. Say uh you wouldn't happen to have any other stops would you?" Howlite wanted to kill Flint so badly. It was like having an itch that noone lets you scratch. He HATED that. He whispered to Pearl, "next rebel dies and you aren't gonna stop me."
"Shoot, if you'd like we could go for a drive. I just got my keys and she's got a full tank. What do you say Pearl? Wanna try to drive? I could teach you." He opened the door and gestured towards the steering wheel. If he could teach Pearl to drive.... It would be amazing. Not too many gems drive these days. Flint speculated it was due to him being closer to humans than most. He considered them brothers. He then looked to Howlite who seemed to have an irritated look on his face. "Howlite are you OK? I say you take a breath and get in the car."
She rubs her face with a soft groan hear of howlite being irritated now but she felt like she has now finally done something good in her life she managed to save a life and not destroy it for once she was honestly ready to die a while ago because she stood on front of that barrel to protect dear fling with her life not afraid of the possibility of never coming back and winding u up as a bunch of useless shards on the cold ground just to protect someone that she did not even know she had no idea what made her feel like this to flint but she ignored it and nods saying in a soft voice" I've drove flew a ship before I should be fine with a car."
"Wonderful." Howlite growled as he got in the car. He looked out the window to where Flint was once standing. Howlite had the perfect shot and Pearl stopped him. Why? What made Flint deserve life? He was a rebel and he has one order: all must die. "Flint, can I ask you something? Do you miss it? Homeworld? Working for the diamonds?" It really made him curious. Flint used to be one of the most respected of Blue Diamond's gems. Why would he give it all up? He as practically nobility and hr gave it up for some traitor. It didn't make sense.
"All right Pearl, I'm giving you a quick crash course. This baby's a stick shift so here's what you gotta do. This is your steering wheel. Put your hands at 10 and 2. Right now it's parked so you're gonna want to take this shift and put it into drive. Then this is the accelerator. This is brake. These are your turn signals. She's got a full tank so just let her rip." He then got in the passenger seat next to Pearl. He figured if she couldn't handle it he could take over. He cracked a smile watching her. He knew she'd have fun at some point today. Then he answered Howlite's question. "Sometimes. I didn't ask to be apart of this war. In fact I'm not in it for the rebels. I'm in it for Blue and everything she stood for. She saw that all life was precious so I'm going to protect that life."
She sighs slightly relaxing after the barrel of the gun dissapeard from her face she realized she made a rash,bold, and not to mention stupid move cause she knew being shattered would mean to never ever come back you would be lost forever never to refornbut she concluded that this was the best decision to go with because she did not think that the innocent looking flint was any "real" criminal she smiles at howlite glad she was able to actually protect someone instead of being the one that has always been protected and coddled her entire life.she looks to flint hearing him tell her what to do so she put her and at 10 and 2 as she grins she says" this is so easy
Howlite looked as Pearl grabbed the wheel. Sentiment? Why? He deserved death. He stared at Flint's gem. Back on his ship he kept the shards of every kill. Of all his shards, Quartzes were always the best. What he wouldn't give for that gem's shards. "So where exactly are we going? You clearly know the city better than me and Pearl. Any thoughts?" He then turned towards Pearl. "I'm sorry about earlier." He tried not to show his guilt. Normally he was cruel to gems because that was his job. However with Pearl it just felt wrong.
Flint smiled as Pearl grabbed the wheel. "Good question Howlite. Hmmm... I say we grab a bite to eat. I don't think I've ever seen you eat before. What about you Pearl? Have you ever tried human food?" He looked out the window. "Hmm well about a mile up the road you should see a place called 'Fish Stew Pizza' it's pretty good in my opinion." Pizza was just what Flint needed. He often foud human food to be a great stress relief. He checked his wallet. "5,10, 20, ah $50. That should be enough for all of us." He then made sure he had is I.D on him. It was a driver's license with a black and white picture of him.
Pearl struggles to drive down the road with sharp stops and start she yelps as her body's is thrown around by the car and as she drove down the road at a uncontrolled speed she caught the attention of the police causing her to drive faster and faster she started to shake " oh no oh no what do I do am I in trouble did I do something wrong AM I GONNA GO TO JAIL??!" Her speed reached one hundred miles per hour and she lost control of the car causing it to spin off the road and Hit the fish stew pizza pearl looks at flint shaking " oh god what did I do why did I ever agree to drive?!"
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.
