Exhaustion. A haunting feeling, one that brought weariness and pain the small girl didn't realize her body was capable of. After two days of constant abuse, her small engine and bodily functions were about to enter sleep mode. And, for a small girl lost in a large city, the act of sleeping could be fatal or worse. Her position on the park bench wasn't helping with her battle against sleep, which was becoming harder and harder. Struggling to keep herself awake by kicking her legs to either side, the small teenager finally stepped off the bench. Her walk was staggered, stumbling from one side to the other as she traveled down the sidewalk. Her vision was blurring, partially from the lack of energy and the exhaustion in her body.
“I...can't...fall asleep...not here.” The short, dirty girl with her tattered clothes and metal backpack spoke firmly, just before she stumbled and fell flat on her face. Her body was almost too exhausted to move, as she struggled to push herself back up and wipe the reflexive tears from her eyes. Ryce Reville
"klak klak klak" The pale majin with the familiar red clothed tendril was walking through the park her icey pupils looked as if it was looking at a faraway destination. The openness of the park had helped her ease her mind and concentrate on her future plans. "the human are masters of technology It would appear I was right to seek one in helping me find the magic orbs" As she got closer to her goal she couldn't help but look out toward the universe above her " captain ... will you be coming soon?" Almost on cue she felt something heavy against her foot , she looked down to see what appeared to be a little girl struggling to stand her face full of tears. The sudden turn of events left her staring toward the girl her expressionless face down toward her.
Her struggling to get up left an uneasiness in her gut as she placed her arm around her shoulder and helped her to her feet. She noted the heaviness in her weight for that of something so small. " I bet that ground isn't as comfortable as you thought huh?" the majin would try to lighten her spirits with a little of her wit. She didn't know what had happen to the little human but her tattered clothing seemed to point toward something traumatic. Whatever it was the majin didn't have to know, it was wrong to leave someone so small and fragile helpless on the ground like that. "do you want me to take you somewhere for... injured people" For the life of her she couldn't remember what it was called, she knew it started with an H.

Before the small android could finish pushing herself up, she felt a firm but soft grasp on her shoulder. Amber was lifted to her feet by someone taller, and purple? Her mind grasped for the words to name this mysterious woman, and the word came from somewhere deep within.
She's a Majin...was that a joke? I'm too tired to understand most of what she's saying Amber's blurry gaze barely registered the Majin eyeing her up and down, trying to assess what the small android had been through. Amber finally got her feet under her, standing shakily. When the Majin mentioned somewhere for hurt people, her mind instantly knew what she meant. I can't go to a hospital! Without a family or relatives, I might be snatched up by the system, or worse!
Reaching out with one hand, the girl grabbed the Majin's and whispered in a soft voice.
“I can't go to the hospital. But if there's somewhere I could sleep, I'd be grateful.”
The android was already trembling again, exhaustion threatening to topple her yet again. She waited for the Majin's response, however long it took. Majin Zinsorry about the wait
The pale grey majin looked at her as she looked as if she would fall over yet again she would reach out and try to keep her steady only for the android to grab her instead, she seemed to be against going to a hospital and only wanted to rest. The majin's icy pupils looked to her surroundings trying her best to find her somewhere comfortable to sleep , she kept her arm around the android to keep her steady as she noticed two trees which stood about three feet apart in the grass. They were opposite the direction she had been found and so she held onto her tight and tried to guide her movements to the two trees , if she would begin to fall again she would simply pick her up and carry her the rest of the way. They were now close enough to the tree for her to do what she had planned, her tendril slipped from the wrapping and before the android would know it there would be a bed in front of them, with blankets and even a pillow where the tree used to be.
She would then try to remove the metal back pack from her and place the bag by the bed , she would then , lift the blanket with her tendril and place her softly onto the bed. She tuck her in and simply patted her chest lightly so she knew that it is not someone who wants to hurt her and wants to help her instead. " you can rest here for a while.. I will make sure no one bothers you" She said as she walked over to a bench and sat down in a position which was facing the bed as to watch for any disturbances to the android's sleep. Her arms would be crossed as she sat there silently.

As the small girl started to fall forward again, the Majin wrapped an arm around her. Amber slumped into the firm hold, letting all her inhibitions go as she started to go into hibernation mode. The small girl could barely acknowledge where they were headed; she didn't even show any shock or notice of when the Maijin turned a tree into a bed.
There was a small bit of resistance when the Majin slid the backpack off her shoulders; but that small show of struggle was enough to exhaust the girl even further. She could feel the comfort of the bed and the weight of exhaustion crushed down on her soul even further. Closing her eyes, the small girl instantly fell asleep.
Almost six hours later, Amber's eyes shot open. It was starting to turn dark outside, the evening finally setting on the city. Sliding out of the mysteriously random bed in the middle of the park, the small android let her gaze travel from the bed to the Majin seated across from it. Reaching for her backpack, the girl scooped it up and bowed towards the alien.
“Thanks for watching over me as I slept. If there's nothing else you need, I'll take my leave. Thanks again, nice stranger.”
Her eyes were gazed from the bed to the sky and back to the bed which judging from the changing of angle in the burning star had been for quite some time. Suddenly the little girl had stood up , grabbed her bag and in a bow was on her way out. She reached out her arm toward her in a protective manner as if expecting her to fall flat on her face, but from the looks of it her body seemed able to handle her own weight now which was far better than she had hoped. "oh?... you bow and scamper off is that how you show you'r appreciation?..." Her face was deadpan but it was meant as a joke , she went on "what is your name ? at least if we know each other I'd be able to help you again... this is like what you earthling would call not being useless" She was pretty sure that was right as She jumped from the bench her majin boots landed to the ground a light thud, her arms reached out as if she were presenting herself as something new. " I'm Zin by the way , the great and powerful."
She began to adjust her tendril back into the red clothe she wore on her head, she moved it back and forth as if it was hair... Her eyes analyzed the girl's movements for a moment as she finished fixing it. "so... I won't push into your business but human girls don't usually fall over from exhaustion.. right?" Her gaze was cold but it showed a glimpse of compassion " I'f whatever did that to you is a problem you can always join me.. I'm sure the captain would love a new addition to the crew , as long as you make yourself useful.." she didn't know what came over her but it seemed like the right thing to do ,if she refused she wouldn't force it . She was not that kind of majin..
