Regrets by CrazyIguana Regrets by CrazyIguana
"FINISHED!", A writing stick hits the desk with a hard KLUNK. The sound filled the empty room for only a second before returning to silence, somehow even stiller than before. Woop leaned back in her seat, feeling the cool rain of accomplishment on her face. She closed her eyes and allowed her weary self to be engulfed in the silence. A wind leaned against the tree causing it to moan eerily. She listened to her home whisper back to the wind. For a moment there was nothing. And just like that it was over, as a crash followed by a outburst of laughter drifted in though the window. Woop opened her eyes and turned to the window to observe the scene where the noise had come from.
There was Robin getting back up, from a fall she assumed, his face covered in grass blood. He was smiling and saying something to Lyre, a trapinch who had recently begun living here with us.
" oh Robin...Always getting hurt...I can't take my eyes off you, can i?" Woop sighed to herself quietly.
"how did you end up like this? Unbalanced. weak. A cripple...." Her voice trailed off. She knew very well why.
It was her fault of course. She had lost him, allowed him to wonder off. She hadn't found him quick enough. All the blame rushed to her like a waterfall, her skin absorbed the attack, and it pierced into her being.
"Robin...."she began, but a jolt knocked her posture back and she shook it away.
"that Damn kid shouldn't have ran off like that! It's not my fault! I had more important things to handle!" She couldn't quite recall what she had been doing that day that was so important. A paper, perhaps a contract of some sort. she looked at her selves lined with records and documents like a row of soldiers. When she had begun this establishment she had no idea of all this desk work it would require. She longed to be back out exploring again with her team. They often make the offer, but she's always too busy for a reunion exploration. That's her excuse anyways.
Another Loud thud brought her attention back to the window, where below Robin had fallen again, this time the blood on his face his own. Still smiling, he returned to his feet, a little slower this time. Hardly noticeable to the untrained eye. Woop stared down at him. Robin wanted to leave here, become an adventurer. He'd asked her everyday, and each day she answered as she should, telling him 'no'.
"He can barely walk a straight line without falling and he expects me to let him go out on dangerous adventures?! what a joke!" she scoffed.
Memories of the multiple times she had to save Robin from some upending doom returned to her. From Axel, from a hoard of woobats, drowning that one time when he didn't wait 30 min after eating, from a hungry Lyre. Robin just always seem to find his way into a situation. "Always in some sort of trouble that kid is! I always have to have to lecture him! I-" then something occurred to her. The gravity in the room increase and her tail dropped to the floor. She had barely ever just talked with Robin. Almost every time she had ever spoken with him, it was because he was in trouble. Her breath shortened as she realized she barely even knew anything about him. Her son. Another Thud.
Her gaze fixed on this blue stranger. He was on the ground again yet still looking so happy. She knew that posture and could tell this time he wasn't going to be able to get back up. She Began to stir, she was going to have to go down there and carry him in it seems. "Klick Kirr!"
Woop looked back down. Lyre had lowered her head as to offer a ride for Robin. Robin smiled and climbed onto her head with a giggle. The duo slowly made their way back towards the house, both looking so pleased.
Woop had never expected to like Lyre as much as she did. She had turned out to be such a pure soul. Gentle, modest, and so eager to learn. She looked after Robin as if her was her own, protecting him and being there for him...."A perfect Partner for Robin...."
THUUUUUUUUUUUUD. A stack of papers slammed into the desk, bringing Woop back to her body. "These have come for you SirWoop~ " Deedee stated as she straightened the new tower on Woop's desk.
"arrg...And I had just finished the last pile. It never ends does it? "
"haha Doesn't seem that way~ "
Woop dug through her completed pile collecting several papers with her tail.
"Deedee dearie, could you see that these are mailed off properly? "
The lady leafeon lightened Woop's burden from her tail, "Course Mam!"
"and one more thing..."
"could you send Robin to my office. It's time."
Deedee smiled, "course! and it's about time too~" she sneered as she waltzed out of the room.
Woop returned to her window, but Robin had already left its view.

"I'm Sorry I missed you. "
